You've Got to Be Carefully Taught

A recent "Value Voters Summit" shines an unfortunate and unbecoming light on Christianity as represented by James Dobson and Focus on the Family. I offer this clip from "The View" for a short discussion:



A friend attending a recent Obama get-out-the-vote calling party was surprised to be confronted by the strength of this sentiment from one self-proclaimed life-long Democrat: "...no way in hell I'll vote a Black man into the White House." He wondered aloud how such a thing could be true in 21st century America. I wonder, too, and I hurt to know more of the answer than I want to know.

Mandy Patinkin sings the unfortunate reality of it all ...
