34. Additional info on Pfleger...which would give a 'rounding out' of the public imaginary on PBO:

"...On March 28, 2008, Pfleger invited Jeremiah Wright, former pastor of Barack Obama, the current president of the United States, to deliver a blessing at Saint Sabina during a visit by poet Maya Angelou.

Wright had been criticized by political pundits for several controversial sermons, but Pfleger came to Wright's defense. "I wanted him to come here so he could see that people really stand with him and support him while he's under all this attack. America, unfortunately, has been really cheated of knowing the real Dr. Wright," said Pfleger....

In a statement on Saint Sabina's website, Pfleger wrote, "Dr. Wright is one of the great biblical scholars of our country and the best of preachers in the prophetic tradition. Dr. Wright has been shamefully demonized by 30 second sound bites that have tried to re-define him into someone other than who he is." wikipedia
