There is a principle which is a bar against all information, which is proof against all arguments and which cannot fail to keep a man in everlasting ignorance -- that principle is contempt prior to investigation. Herbert Spencer
Above is a quote I try to live by in order to keep an open mind. How I wish others would live by it as well. Especially neo-cons and media pundits!
I am sick to death of this stupid "God Damn America" business! The press will just not leave it alone and I'm quite tired of hearing about it. Especially since they refuse to hold McCain accountable for his "Sunni/Shia" confusion and any Pastors he's been courting who have said horrible things. Some that could incite violence.
So, today I would like to look in depth at Rev. Wrights sermon. In fact, here it is, in text format and I invite you to sit back and have a look at the controversial sermon -with an open mind. I personally, find it inspirational, even though there are a few things that I do not agree with, and yes, a few things that make me cringe.
The Rev. Wright is a powerful orator, going from love to anger and back to love, so please keep that in mind while reading it. I left it without the annoying quote blocks:********** Confusing God and Government
