Bush came to praise Coretta Scott King, they came to bury Bush.

February 7th, 2006

Coretta Scott King‘s funeral was turned into a political assasination by Joseph Lowery and Jimmy Carter who used the solomn occasion to criticize President George Bush.

As far as I’m concerned their acts of “protest” were no more appropriate than the despicable people who have been going to servicemen’s funerals to shout, sildenafil saleThank God for dead soldiers.”

    Rev. Lowery is an American hero and a prophet who today spoke truth to power. He stands with Rev. King in the great tradition of prophetic Christian ministry. Thanks be to God for Rev. Lowery and Rev. and Mrs. King.

    Even “American Hero’s” can go too far. I guess I should no longer expect anything resembling decency in today’s climate of pathological Bush hatred. There is a time and a place for everything. I’d expect that out of an old fool like Carter. I guess the “Right Reverend” gets a pass.
