I gotta say, I’m not much of an Obama supporter. How could I possibly support a guy who voted to increase subsidies for energy companies, to make it harder to file class action lawsuits, to limit employer liability for workplace injuries, to renew the patriot act, all while being the candidate for change??
That being said, he does have my sympathies on the whole Jeremiah Wright thing. Why? Because I have sat through many a sermon where the priest spouted nonsense of the most ridiculous sort. There were times when I just wanted to rudely object or walk out but for civilities sake remained. And I have heard plenty of folks go on about the dumb lecture their priest or pastor gave last weekend. And no one has ever let their attendance or my own cast any statement at all on personal beliefs. Why? Because that would just be silly, and everyone knows that.
How many of you have sat through sermons or homilies where the only thing you could do was let your eyes roll. Where all you could think was – “this guy is a prick” or “the things people say when I didn’t bring my gun.”
