TCU Moves Event Honoring Obama's Pastor

Chancellor says the Rev. Jeremiah Wright's visit posed a threat to security.


Texas Christian University has decided to move an event honoring Sen. Barack Obama's controversial pastor to an off-campus location because of security concerns, the Daily Skiff reports. The Rev. Jeremiah Wright's appearance at the TCU campus is part of a national black church summit held by the nearby Brite Divinity School.

"Threats to a safe and secure campus end up eroding everything we are trying to accomplish in higher education," TCU's chancellor said. "Therefore, when concerns arise in this area, I take them very seriously." Neither the school nor local law enforcement would elaborate on what those concerns were.
