Cross-Posting Frank Schaeffer

Not a HUGE fan of Patheos co-blogger Frank Schaeffer ("Why I Still Talk to Jesus") but this is worth reading: The Slow-Motion Lynching of President Barack Obama.Go over there and take a few minutes with it. For me the title alone was an eye-opener; "slow-motion lynching" opened doors in my head, giving me an A-Ha! that had been 6 years building.One of the comments: This president is as good as it gets.
