Professor of Religion at Princeton Dr. Cornel West gives a standing ovation for Rev. Jeremiah Wright, former pastor of the Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago, Illinois, at the National Press Club April 28, 2008 in Washington, DC. Wright was Democratic presidential hopeful Sen. Barack Obama's pastor for many years and he recently came under scrutiny when excerpts of one of his sermons showed him saying, "God bless America... No!... God Damn America!" Wright said that the negative attention was not about politics or politicians. "This is not an attack on Jeremiah Wright," he said. "It is an attack on the black church."
