One Lady Pastor's Life
Ditto X 10
Saw the Wright remarks on Olbermann last night. I was stunned. I actually cut him some slack, mentally, during the hubbub over his preaching -- "God damn the United States" and so forth might make sense, in the context of a certain kind of sermon. But this sort of thing, unfortunately, shows that my slack was misplaced. He belongs to an old and ugly tradition of Christian anti-semitism, filtered through the distinctive lens of paranoid black nationalism.
I cut him slack for the preaching - but there were quotes from him about how the government deliberately put AIDS into the Black community...and other things about him that I pegged him as a loose cannon even before Obama cut him loose.
I cut him slack in the preaching too... truth be told, but yeah, I'm just stunned. and sad, actually.
