6. And the youtubes of Wright's sermons really were taken out of context.
I know Jeremiah Wright. I know his take on liberation theology, and I knew when I saw the youtube clips what the rest of those sermons would say. When I saw the whole sermons, I was right.

But there's no context in which Pfleger's comments are appropriate.
