Conservatives throwing tantrums at black community over Obama support

Saturday, May 19, 2012

It’s hilarious to me to read the right-wing publications and blogs give room to a supposed angry black pastor who whines about how Obama has betrayed the black community, of course omitting the fact that said pastor never really supported Obama in the first place...

Amendment One and an angry lament of a native son

Wednesday, May 9, 2012
As a native son of the Deep South and of North Carolina, tonight, I am ashamed, and angry. ... I am ashamed for being too understanding of my homophobic brothers and sisters in Christ, knowing personally just how difficult it is to unravel the hate that can be instilled by the Christian faith. I am ashamed for being too tolerant of intolerance and hate. I am angry that the moral arc of the universe has been so misshapen by so-called Christian morality. I am angry that our churches, by and large, have stood for spirit of the world — the spirit of sin, death and hate — rather than the spirit of God — the spirit of love, creation and just societies.
