HOW WAS "WHITEY IS EVIL" GOING TO BE HELPFUL?:

Religious faith not helping Obama (RACHEL ZOLL, 3/28/08, AP)

Religion is supposed to be Barack Obama's strength.

Unlike many Democratic candidates before him, Obama speaks with ease about his faith. He attends Sunday worship and knows his Bible. His supporters believe he can pry some committed churchgoers away from the GOP.

But the furor over comments by his Chicago pastor, the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, broadcast again and again on TV and viewed by millions on YouTube, is tempering those hopes.


Perhaps because they have none, pundits aren't very good on the dynamics of religion in America.

Religion is local, something statists will never understand.
