My Back Pages (March, 2008) Graven Images

It was like watching people letting themselves be hypnotized for the greater glory not of Christ but of men. It was like watching a generation willing to continue their enslavement to a self-imposed definition of inferiority rather than rise up in the liberation of truth faith and equality. I saw not a hunger for the glory of God, but a thirsting after the glory of a race to the detriment of all others. How weak, I thought, and how shameful. A Christ triumphant would drive these race hustlers from His temple. -- Graven Images: Racist Fundamentalist Churches of America

They are not Christian. How simple is that?

But all the tradition, the form, is the Church; so the form must be used, even as the Black Muslims used evangelical style.

Or the eight-year-old Al Sharpton, who learned through being assigned bagman, carrying $80,000 in collections for his circuit preaching uncle.

Metamorphosis within the form. The wrong Reverend Wright's flock do not wish to go to the trouble of leaving the institution, and especially not experiencing the inconvenience of wearing the garb and gab of Muslims. This is a compromise made easy for them.

The Obama could not yet run for office as his own god. This is one he could lease. The lease has expired.
