RANT: Easter sermons should NOT be political


Pastor at Obama’s Easter Church Service: ‘Captains of the Religious Right’ Want Blacks ‘in the Back of the Bus,’ Women ‘Back in the Kitchen’

*** begin quote ***

The pastor at the Washington, D.C. church where the Obama family celebrated Easter on Sunday said members of the religious right want blacks “in the back of the bus,” women “back in the kitchen” and immigrants “back on their side of the border.”

*** end quote ***

Perhaps the good Pastor missed the message of Easter?

Peace on Earth, Good will towards man, universal forgiveness.

A political attack on the right, or the left for that matter, from the pulpit is unseemly.

To a President, who seems to thrive on being a spendthrift and creating division in the country, a better sermon might be about the “brotherhood of man”, the parable of the talents, or the admonition to save for a rainy day. 

If he claims not to have heard anything from Reverend Wright, then it probably doesn’t matter what is said.

Shame to waste the day on divisivness.

I am watching a show about the poor in RIo.

Sad to see so much human capital wasted!

When I think of what I pay in “taxes” — that is nothing more than theft for fat connected cates, it makes me sad.

But then everything thse days seems to make me sad!
