It provided this wonderful squirm moment from Dick Durbin
But the real irony comes from this story at the Washington Post today, the Title:
Black church leaders try to inspire congregants to vote for Obama
“We can’t tell people who to vote for, but we can certainly point out the differences,” said the Rev. Lin Hill, associate minister of the 2,500-member Bethany Baptist Church, which hosted the gathering on Saturday. “Our president has declared Jesus Christ to be his Lord and savior, while his opponent denies the deity of Christ.”
In the central Florida city of Melbourne, for instance, several ministers joined forces recently to host a community forum to address lingering questions about Obama’s gay-marriage announcement. Roughly 200 people attended the meeting, during which pastors tried to reassure congregants that Obama, however misguided on this one issue, still demonstrated Christian values in his personal life and policy decisions. Most parishioners seemed satisfied, the pastors said.
I wonder what they’ll have to say about this? I guess it’s time to have this discussion again.
Strangely enough the media that was so concerned about the GOP platform consider it just words, but lets not forget something, the people in charge of this platform had to proactively remove these words and all the Durbin squirming can’t change it.
