Obama and Religion

The Radio Free Acton crew takes on the controversy over the highly-publicized statements of Rev. Jeremiah Wright who served as pastor of Chicago's Trinity United Church of Christ and serves as a spiritual mentor to Presidential candidate Barack Obama. Host Marc Vander Maas is joined by Anthony Bradley and Ray Nothstine, and Acton President Rev. Robert A. Sirico makes his first appearance in the Acton Studio.

What is Black Liberation Theology? What are the similarities and differences between Black Liberation Theology and the Liberation theology that rose to prominence in the 80s? What would the early civil rights leaders in the US think about this theology? The RFA crew tackles all these questions.
