Obamas' Pastor Not Exactly Poor

The hypocrisy of Reverend Wright is just as stunning as Obamas' own hypocrisy.

FOX News has uncovered documents that indicate Wright is about to move to a 10,340-square-foot, four-bedroom home in suburban Chicago, currently under construction in a gated community.

While it is not uncommon for an accomplished clergyman to live in luxury, Wright’s retirement residence is raising some questions.

“Some people think deals like this are hypocritical. Jeremiah Wright himself criticizes people from the pulpit for middle classism, for too much materialism,” said Andrew Walsh, Associate Director of the Leonard E. Greenberg Center for the Study of Religion in Public Life with Trinity College in Hartford, Conn.

“So he’s entitled to be tweaked here. So the question really is, how unusual is this? Somewhat unusual,” he said.

According to documents obtained from the Cook County Register of Deeds, Wright purchased two empty lots in Tinley Park, Ill., from Chicago restaurant chain owner Kenny Lewis for $345,000 in 2004.

I grew up in Illinois and know exactly where Tinley Park is, as a matter of fact I played hockey there on many many occasions. What I remember most is how lily white the town is. Is Reverend Wright really going to move to a town exactly like "United States of kkk A?" Since most won't trust me that here are the demographics for Tinley Park. Over 90% white and less than 2% black.

You certainly did your homework on this one as proved by the "lily white" population. There is a religious song entitled "I've
Got A Mansion Just Over The Hilltops". This song refers to the heavenly home of christians. The purchase of this land and home has tones of Jim Baker with his millions. Some "preachers" do more for themselves than they do the their congregation. Wright is a strange, strange person

It definitely is a far cry from the impoverished streets where he led his ministry. I agree with Jane, this does sound a lot like the Jim Baker incident.

Since he advertised where he is going to build his house, the kkk will find him real easy.
