So today (1/21/2013) Obama, family, and friends attended “church” before the inauguration ceremony. On the face of it, which is all the public will ever see, that sounds humble, solemn, and reflective… It wasn’t.
Obama’s current pastor, the “Reverend” Ronald Braxton, delivered a sermon reminiscent of Barack’s former pastors (Jeremiah Write & Joseph Lowery). Where does he find these dirt bags?
Braxton stated that Obama was just like Moses (a demotion for Obama) facing the Red Sea… “forward is the only option… The people couldn’t turn around. The only thing that they could do was to go forward.”
And like Moses, Obama will have to overcome great obstacles. “Mr. President, stand on the rock.” [by this he didn't mean Jesus].
Braxton also compared conservatives and Republicans (Obamas enemies) to the Biblical enemies of Moses; stating that “sometimes enemies insist on doing it the hard way.”
This so-called pastor ended the service by leading the “worshipers” in a chant of “Forward”!
This was indeed a worship service, but it was in worship of an arrogant, narcissistic, bully of a man. There is no way a Christian would have sat through such an attack against our faith; so I assume all in attendance sat with smarmy confidence and joined in the irreverence at the appropriate times.
Sometimes you look for a sign that you are right; that you are on the side of what is good and decent in the world. And sometimes you get that confirmation. This is one of those signs.
