    Standing O for Wright

    Ovation greets Wright at festivities for Angelou

    Sen. Barack Obama's former pastor surprised a South Side congregation Friday night by showing up at an event marking poet Maya Angelou's birthday.

    The Rev. Jeremiah Wright received a thunderous, standing ovation from members of St. Sabina Church, which hosted Angelou as she nears her 80th birthday.

    "When he came out, people literally went wild," said St. Sabina's pastor, the Rev. Michael Pfleger.

    Wright, Obama's spiritual adviser for years, has lain low ever since his fiery past sermons became political fodder in the presidential campaign.

    Obama has condemned remarks by Wright that denounced America for allegedly racist and genocidal acts. Wright recently scrapped plans to receive an award in Texas and to speak at Houston and Tampa, Fla., churches.

    Wright did not talk publicly about Obama on Friday night. Instead, he gave the benediction at St. Sabina and smiled as the audience sang "Happy Birthday" to Angelou.


    From a reader: What is increasingly clear to a growing number of white Democrats is that Obama fronts for a cabal of black power ideologues and leftist extremists. His election will legitimize and empower some of the worst elements threatening the cohesion of the United States, which is already teetering on a knife edge.
