Barack Obama has been publicly defending his longtime relationship with the controversial former pastor of his Chicago church, but his campaign is taking steps to quietly remove any mention of his pastor from the campaign’s Web site.

But the efforts to “airbrush” the Rev. Jeremiah Wright of Trinity United Church from the campaign’s site, www.barackobama.com, have been uncovered by bloggers who have conducted searches of the site in Web archives.

For example, Wright had been prominently featured on the Obama site as the first person listed in the “Testimonials” section.

Next to a large picture, Wright was quoted as saying: “I support Barack because of his incarnated faith — his faith made alive in the flesh. He reaches across all faith communities and even to those who have no faith at all.” But Wright’s testimonial has now vanished from Obama’s site and been replaced by a statement from “Danielle S.,” a Ph.D. student in educational policy.
