moss2.jpgA reader responds to the new minister at Trinity United Church of Christ, Barack Obama’s church, using the word “crucifixion” to describe the media’s treatment of Rev. Jeremiah Wright:

If atheists compared harsh criticism to the Crucifixion, I’d take it as hyperbole, and I wouldn’t think much of the comment, because the ideas of Christianity don’t happen to mean anything to them.
But for a minister of a church that considers itself a Christian denomination to compare all this to the Crucifixion… this is unbelievably offensive.
A minster should know that there is nothing any of us could ever go through that would be even the slightest bit comparable to the Crucifixion.

Is this more evidence of the divide between black and white churchgoers?
