Obama's Bus Hits Another Speedbump

So....Barry has resigned from his church. Wow. I wonder if he's familiar with the phrase 'a day late and a dollar short'?

Sorry Barack [redacted] Obama. We're not buying what you're selling. Twenty years, Barry. For twenty YEARS you sat in a pew at that church, listening to filth. You said nothing and did nothing. You sat. Your wife sat. Your CHILDREN sat! Listening to that racist filth.

Now, (you should pardon the expression), your chickens are coming home to roost. Your racist, hate-spewing pastor - the Reverend 'Wrong' - got our attention. Then your church's association with the racist, hate-spewing Nation of Islam leader 'Calypso Louie' Farrakhan was revealed. Now, it's the racist, hate-spewing (and self-loathing white man) Catholic priest 'Father' Pfleger. What's next, Barry? Do you have a racist, hate-spewing Rabbi waiting in the wings?

In the modern political equivalent of a confessional - the press conference - Mr. O said he wouldn't denounce his church, because it wasn't worth denouncing. Then he blamed US! WE wouldn't let him disassociate himself from the racist rants issuing forth from the pulpit of his church; the sermons of hate he and his family absorbed for twenty years. The MEDIA wouldn't let it go, either, and kept connecting him to his past. Well. How dare we?

I am a Christian, and this stuff makes me sick. I grew up in a main-stream Protestant church. We had lessons on race relations in Sunday School, too, and they went something like this:

Jesus loves the little children,
All the children of the world.
Red and Yellow, Black and White
They are precious in His sight.
Jesus loves the little children
of the world.

Call me crazy, but I still believe it. I suppose in Barry's world that makes me a typical white woman...
