A Way to Moderate That Chicago Church of Hate
It occurs to me, with Barack Obama now quitting the Chicago Church of Hate -- Trinity United -- after the latest controversy, that the Church's hate agenda can be modified. All we have to do is to encourage each of the church's members to run for the Democratic nomination for President of the United States. That brings a public spotlight on why such a person would belong to a Church of hate. In turn, that spotlight forces a person who wants to be thought of as a decent human being to quit the church. If we can encourage several hundred of those church members to seek high office, in time enough of them will be embarrassed into resigning, as Obama finally has done. And that will gently moderate the tone of hate.
