The Gift of Easter

No, not yet another interpretation of two chocolate bunnies. Cute the first 17 times you see it. Now irritating. By next week it will be considered a viable candidate for the Democratic party nomination.

Speaking of Democrat candidates what has been going on at Trinity United Church of Christ now that Jeremiah Wright has been forcibly retired?

Why, it looks like those merry folks have just turned over an entirely new leaf! They aren't being divisive ANY MORE!

The whole hoopla was all the work of ONE BAD APPLE, crazy old "Uncle" Jeremiah.

Or was it.....

"The new pastor of Barack Obama’s church delivered a defiant defense of its retiring reverend Sunday, comparing media coverage of Rev. Jeremiah Wright Jr. to a modern-day lynching that resembles Jesus’ death at the hands of the Romans."

Yeah. Jesus didn't have to die or anything. Just go into retirement. Oh and instead of crucifixion he was "lynched".

Why must these jerks not admit to the totally obvious? Wright got a small portion of what happened to Don Imus even though one of them is clearly an entertainer and the other a veteran religious leader.

“The lynching was national news. The RNN, the Roman News Network, was reporting it and NPR, National Publican Radio had it on the radio. The Jerusalem Post and the Palestine Times all wanted exclusives, they searched out the young ministers, showed up unannounced at their houses, tried to talk with their families, called up their friends, wanted to get a quote on how do you feel about the lynching?” he continued.

ROMAN News Network? Looks like someone is carrying their analogy a bit too far.

Bishop Vashti Murphy McKenzie, the first female bishop in the AME Church, also delivered a sermon, in which she talked about visionaries like King and Gandhi and “Jeremiah” (it was unclear whether she meant Wright), and argued that their words weren’t about “anger,” but about “a passion that demands confrontation.”

Unclear? Was she supposed to be referring to the prophet from Judaism that she and her associates call a "gutter religion"?

“Dr. Wright represents the best among us … An attack on this man of God is an attack on all those of the cloth who believe in the social Gospel of liberation. And I will not stand for it,” he (Rev. Samuel B. McKinney of Mount Zion Baptist Church in Seattle) wrote.

So here we have more folks who believe that on 9/11/01 that 3000 people died as a result of "chickens coming home to roost"?

Moss issued several pleas to congregants to donate to what he called the “Resurrection Fund,” stressing that during this time of battle, money is needed to defend the church. He offered no additional specifics about the fund, telling churchgoers he didn’t want to get into it because Trinity is streaming the service live on the Web and the services are available for purchase on DVD.

In other words, let's not get caught doing something even more embarrassing. Now that we have learned that Whitey can watch YouTube.

I would much rather vote for the chocolate easter bunny in light of my other options at this time. In fact, I feel the chocolate rabbit might be a safer bet. I wouldn't even care if the bunny was white chocolate or dark chocolate.

That someone would find a way to commemorate the "revrund Jeremiah" is beyond me. I just don't get it.
I will concur that God has and will allow some things to happen to this nation, but I very seriously doubt they have anything to do with what Jeremiah claims. I would suggest our taking prayer and Bibles out of our schools, for starters. I could go on, but I digress. People such as this amaze me.
I sometimes wonder if the Framers had reserves about dingbats like that when they wrote the first amendment.
