It seems that Michelle Obama, during a campaign event in Nashville (NB: “campaign event” may be redundant. Has there been any other kind of event for this administration?) said of her husband, Pres. Obama
“I am going to be working so hard. We have an amazing story to tell. This president has brought us out of the dark and into the light.”
Do I hear an “Amen!”?
No. I thought not.
Mrs. Obama is clearly a smart woman. She probably spent a lot of time with her husband in the church of Jeremiah Wright, soaking up the strange Marxist cocktail called Black Liberation Theology, understands social and even theological questions in terms of structural relationships between two groups: victims and victimizers.
Anyone who has spent any time in any Christian church, even one on the fringe of reason and history, ought to know what Person this “out of the dark and into the light.” image invokes.
So, sing along! Everybody!
