I live in Michigan and write to you as a sister in Christ. I write publicly because I've heard a lot from you lately, and you have made statements in the public arena that bruise our national capacity for honest dialogue.
"A prophet is not without honor, except in his own country." Many of us have read these words of Jesus. We have many, many present day examples of thi...
Perhaps former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum should take a couple aspirin and get some rest. It appears the pressure of being the front-runner in the Republican presidential sweepstakes is getting to him.
I believe in freedom of religion. I believe in being politically correct. What I do not believe in are double standards. To that end, Mitt Romney must answer for having been 32 years old, and the member of an organization that explicitly excluded African Americans.
The narrative of Palin's book is the same narrative that has dominated American religious history and has proven so detrimental to those who do not fit into the white Protestant fold.
'Tis the holiday season. So I thought I'd commemorate some of the worst behavior by public figures. Yessiree, we're all sure to be on our best behavior during this festive season!
Palin dredges up and distorts an old off the cuff quote on race and stands it on its head to make a grand case that Obama, his wife, and his administration are closet bigots and America loathers.

If Obama is able to achieve the goals outlined in the speech, he will have succeeded on the energy issue, but the speech itself is certainly not enough.
Wright represents a past that Obama has long since shed, and that his presidency had to shed to have any chance of success.
Obama's ascendancy demonstrates he has the capacity and the means to make a difference along racial grounds. Unfortunately, it doesn't appear to be high on his list of priorities.
One of Obama's greatest unheralded risks is his repeated attempt to use politics to help lead toward truth, rather than just a win.
If outright lies end up killing health care reform, the Republicans will have won, but, more importantly, the American people will have lost.
Van Jones was the best person for the job he just relinquished. He would have helped Republican lawmakers in their districts. He would have created jobs. He would have made a difference.
