I must say that I have sensed racism in the unjustified anger some people feel toward Obama. I TOTALLY understand people opposing his political positions. But Christians, let me ask again: Why the hatred for the man? Some of us need to ask ourselves if it is racially motivated. And if it is, we need to get down on our knees and ask God to forgive us.
Am I passionate about this? YES! I grew up in racially-segregated Mississippi. I have seen the ugliness of judging a person simply based on the color of his/her skin. I have heard the cruel and ungodly jokes told and broad generalizations made. I wish I could say that what I witnessed was outside of church. But it was as common in church as out. Even as we claimed to be "the right church." How "right" is that?
The truth of the matter is: I don't see a HINT of Jesus in it. And being Jesus to the world is the clearest evidence of being "the right church."
