DALLAS (AP) - Barack Obama's longtime pastor preached in Dallas
on Sunday and got a standing ovation from 4,000 worshippers at
Friendship-West Baptist Church.
Wright wove a gospel message with commentary about social
justice, according to The Dallas Morning News.
Security was tight, and no media cameras were allowed inside the
church.
Wright has said he's received death threats since snippets of
old sermons circulated on TV and the Internet last month. In some
of those sermons, he accused the U.S. government of racism and
seemed to blame the United States for bringing the Sept. 11 attacks
upon itself.
Obama distanced himself from those comments, but his
presidential campaign was knocked on the defensive by the
controversy.
Wright was scheduled to give two sermons in Dallas on Sunday,
then give a speech Monday at the National Press Club in Washington.
