But to all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God, who were born, not of blood nor of the will of the flesh nor of the will of man, but of God.
JOHN 1:12-13 ESV
Asked about the inclusion of Iranians in Middle East peace talks, former Ambassador to the United Nations, Bill Richardson, says, “I think eventually if they want to show goodwill, if we they want American support, if they want congressional support for a nuclear deal they might step in and say to Hamas ‘look, you gotta start talking, you gotta start dealing with Israel, you gotta find ways to lessen the tension there.'”
If you were to visit many anti-Obama websites as I have, you would often find lists of 10, 25, 100, or even 1000 reasons why Barack Obama is the worst president ever. Those lists are filled with nonsense, but are cited as justification for the hatred and contempt expressed by contributors to the blog. Why is that? In my opinion, it is because President Obama is “too uppity,” he does not express enough humility and deference to his betters. In America’s past, insufficient humility by blacks was the cause of many lynchings. Today lynchings are a thing of the past, but white anger and resentment of a black president continue to fuel the politics of the Right.
