Rev. Wright in Denial

Extremists rarely recognize themselves as such, and so is the case of former Barack Obama pastor Jeremiah Wright, who told interviewer Bill Moyers that those who had quoted his remarks were "devious" and "unsettling."

For those who may have forgotten, those remarks featured Rev. Wright repeatedly and loudly commanding God to condemn America to an eternity in hell.

If that is not what Rev. Wright meant to say, then he should apologize for his careless use of language, which to the untrained ear sounds an awful lot like what is nowadays called "hate speech," instead of condemning his critics for taking his words seriously.
