I know. It's crazy we're still talking about Rev. Wright. You might be sick of hearing about it already, but he's added a new slur to the mix you'll get a kick out of.

Apparently, according to Wright, Italians have "garlic noses." As in "(Jesus') enemies had their opinion about Him... The Italians for the most part looked down their garlic noses at the Galileans."

In the same sermon, Wright said Jesus was killed "Italian style." 

Who knew Italian style crucifixations came with a side of garlic? First Wright opens me up to black liberation theology. Now, a whole new world of ethnic slurs.  I can't say this whole controversy hasn't been a learning experience...
