Rev. Wright's $1.6 million house

By
Preaching hatred and bigotry while opposing middle classness has been very, very good
for Senator Barack Obama's (D-IL) controversial  preacher and mentor, Rev Jeremiah Wright Jr:
A two-week FOX News investigation, however, has uncovered where Wright will be spending a good deal of his time in retirement, and it is a far cry from the impoverished Chicago streets where the preacher led his ministry for 36 years.

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.

A house that size and for the reputed $1.6M price is definitely not middle class, even with inflation, so maybe Wright justifies his luxurious new digs as upper middle class.
And what does the United Church of Christ's headquarters think of Wright's new home?
“It is customary and appropriate in many Christian denominations, including the United Church of Christ, for local churches to offer housing provisions for retiring clergy, especially in cases where pastors have served long-term pastorates. We support efforts by our 5,700 local churches to ensure that retiring pastors and spouses have continuing housing, adequate pension and health care, as an expression of our continuing appreciation for their years of service. Each local UCC congregation is free to honor a retiring pastor in ways it feels most appropriate to address the needs of that clergyperson’s circumstances,” wrote the Rev. J. Bennett Guess, spokesman for UCC’s national office.
