Wright was NOT controversial

until RW media made him controversial. The UCC hand-picked him to plant a specifically black church with liberal UCC theology to curb the rampant rise of conservative black evangelical churches. The only part that was deemed "controversial" was that he used traditional black preaching techniques in the pulpit - which the white right turned into "angry black man hate speech." The CONTENT of his sermons were pure UCC - overcoming oppression with the transforming power of God's love.
