Rev. Jeremiah Wright returns to Trinity, rants against media



I know journalists are a despised group of people—public opinion polls usually rank us just above used car salesman—but do we really represent the gates of hell? The Rev. Jeremiah Wright—you remember him—said so while making his first return to the pulpit at Trinity Church since retiring last spring:

““Jesus said upon this rock I will build—listen to the promise—my church,” Wright said. “And the gates of hell—listen to the promise—the gates of hell—neither ABC nor CNN—the gates of hell—neither Hannity nor O’Reilly—the gates of hell—neither Time, Time magazine, Chicago Sun-Times, Chicago Tribune . . . the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. Nothing will be impossible with God.”
