A controversial religious leader was in Rochester Thursday. 

Reverend Jeremiah Wright, President Obama's former pastor spoke as part of a panel discussion at the Colgate Rochester Crozer Divinity School.

Reverend Wright's comments caused a firestorm during the 2008 presidential campaign, eventually forcing then-Senator Obama to distance himself from Wright.
