Excerpt:Â Barack Obama's "More Perfect Union" speech of March 18 was a transpicuous opprobrium intended to obfuscate, shift blame and cast all churchdom in the same light as his mentor and pastor. In reality, his speech provided us with a closer look into Obama the man, and suffice it to say, he came up woefully lacking. In his speech, Obama called slavery America's original sin. I beg to differ on strict grounds (of which he and/or his mentor/pastor are welcome to debate me). America's original sin is the same as original sin has been from the beginning â€“ it was and it continues to be man's disobedience to God. Obama, as a self-professed "devout Christian," should know this, but he chose instead to play the race card.
