Most Easter church services dwell on three words: “He is risen!”

At the church that President Obama chose to attend on Easter, the three words were a bit different: “You’re a racist!

Obama attended St. John’s Episcopal Church in DC, and according to the pool reporter, Rev. Luis Leon launched into at least one racist tirade.

“It drives me crazy when the captains of the religious right are always calling us back … for blacks to be back in the back of the bus … for women to be back in the kitchen … for immigrants to be back on their side of the border.”

It was Democrats who forced black Americans to the back of the bus during Jim Crow. No one is doing that now. No one is arguing for the second, either, and unless Rev. Walker wants all US borders erased, then there are sound reasons for respecting those borders. But facts haven’t mattered in America since 2008.

Question: Since Rev. Leon is using the pulpit in a partisan political attack, why isn’t his church’s tax-exempt status under investigation? Will the church report the sermon as an in-kind donation to the Democrats?

Obama has mostly avoided going to church during his tenure. Then he does go to church, and finds a preacher who gets political, like Obama’s 20-year mentor, Rev. Jeremiah Wright, got political. What a coinkidink.

Eh, Obama probably didn’t hear Rev. Leon either.

Wow, you get 1 chance to speak from the pulpit to the most powerful man on Earth, and instead of speaking about God's plan, all you got is racism?
Where did the Reverend Leon go to school, Alinsky U?

How does our Dear Liar keep stumbling into these anti-American churches? It's almost as if he has worse luck than Charlie Brown.

Obviously, have not received word that your opinion doesn't matter.

Since white males, (especially those who are heterosexual and were born into a family that comes from a religion attached to the Bible) have caused all the world's problems, they should have no say in addressing any problems.

"Over at the Washington Post, two “researchers and consultants on social and political issues” argue that American mass shooters are overwhelmingly white males, and that therefore the opinions of white males on what to do about mass shootings should be discounted."

No, not surprised at all. A huge irony lies in how many blacks are dedicated evangelical Christians, but still follow the fool Obama.
