bowing out of commitments to preach around the country. The excuse given is safety - “the safety of the institution to which he has been invited; the safety of his family, which has been placed in harm’s way; and for his own safety.” In the world of spin, this is certainly a more sympathetic explanation than saying something like, "Barack begged me - please lay low until further notice, you're killing my chances to be President with this hateful crap that you spew!"

(Jesus') enemies had their opinion about Him," Wright wrote in a eulogy of the late scholar Asa Hilliard in the November/December 2007 issue. "The Italians for the most part looked down their garlic noses at the Galileans."

this takes us back a few days, so it may be hard for you to relate to, but I just discovered this column by Linda Chavez. She very nicely sums up what Barack did wrong a week ago in the greatest speech of all time.

I remember as a kid how impacted I was when Bobby Orr would correct the judges when he felt they were being too generous in awarding him an assist. These anecdotes about Barack suggest he takes the opposite approach.
Here's the story.
