Now we've got a priest taking cheap shots at a Presidential candidate during his invocation at the New York State Republican Party dinner.
"One more thing, Lord. Please tell Senator Obama that maybe change is a good thing and maybe he should think about changing his favorite preacher," he said, to applause.
"I know a lot more of us would be comfortable with his judgment skills if he hadn’t sat for 20 years through those words offered by his preacher of division, bigotry, and – honestly – half truths without a word of objection from Senator until the media brought it up, and now he doesn’t want any part of the guy," he said.
"I’m willing to be his new preacher."
I always thought a priest's job was to shepherd his flock. Who knew that it now includes partisan politics.
