Rev. Wright, returning to the pulpit of Trinity United Church of Christ for the first time last spring, tells a service marking the congregation's 47th anniversary that President-elect Barack Obama made a 'bad decision' by distancing himself from his pastor, but added: 'He's still my child.' (Chicago Sun-Times) From the Chicago Tribune:
'Wright said no amount of media coverage could dampen Trinity spirit. 'Jesus said upon this rock I will build--listen to the promise--my church,' he said. 'And the gates of Hell--listen to the promise--the gates of Hell--neither ABC nor CNN--the gates of Hell--neither Hannity nor O'Reilly--the gates of Hell--neither Time, Time magazine, Chicago Sun Times, Chicago Tribune ... the gates of Hell shall not prevail against it. Nothing will be impossible with God.'
