    You see how all this plays out: a few people were offended by the reverend's talk but life presumably went on. Meanwhile the emotional appeal of the speech is transmitted and disseminated to millions of a certain political persuasion, who, against all evidence, believe they are sole keepers of the truth.

    I forgot to mention: it reminds me alot of the Pina Colada song--which I didn't like for the same reasons.

    First, no one is claiming absolute truth here. Second, what evidence are you talking about? I wonder if you made up your mind that you were going to be against this before thinking about it. If you can't come up with concrete and precise reasons to be offended, why are you offended? You can still like it or dislike it, just actually think about it first, instead of giving it a knee-jerk thumbs-down just because it is Christian.

    You know what caught me? The fact that this is an "inspiring statement," while Jeremiah Wright, not within the confines of a political orifice, is deemed "dangerous, revolutionary, and America hating."

    Yet, both speak of social injustice, just from different angles. It appears that race still matters in this country.

    No. One of those guys blamed the whites for foisting AIDS on the black community, and said that the chickens have come home to roost after 911. The other didn't.

    That's a pretty "different angle".

    No. The asshole of a minister just called people on welfare lazy. Like I said, Flop, you hold the truth. It's too bad you have to live in a world where people don't see things exactly as you do.

    The asshole of a minister

    You're gonna have to narrow that one down for me.

    I'm assuming you don't like the white guy, and it's cool to call him an a-hole.

    But criticize the black guy, and I'm a racist.

    Awwww, we're back to baby being called a racist. Life's so hard for a white guy in America that he even can't make ignorant comments without getting called on it. Bummer.

    As for the minister, he referred to people he doesn't even know as lazy. That spells asshole in my book. Capice?

    ".....not God bless America but God DAMN America!" -Rev. Jerimiah Wright


    "We come before you today to ask for your forgiveness and to seek your direction and guidance..."- Rev. Joe Wright

    If you think these are morally equivilent words and cannot understand America's differing response then you are more out of touch than I thought.
