President Barack Obama has re-discovered his Christian faith, and his new spiritual adviser is no longer Rev. Jeremiah Wright, but an Episcopal pastor who preaches sermons, which claim that the Republican Party wants African-Americans "to sit in the back of the bus."
CBS News reports that, "President Obama attended an Easter service with his family today at St. John’s Episcopal Church near the White House, and the pastor delivering the sermon at the service veered into political territory when he slammed the religious right for living in the past and lionizing 'the good old days.'"
Mr. Obama greeted the press and onlookers at the service by saying, "Happy Easter, everybody." He was joined by his wife and two children at the church across Lafayette Square.
According to CBS News, "the sermon at the service, delivered by Dr. Luis Leon, an Episcopal pastor who delivered the benediction at Mr. Obama's second inauguration, took a turn for the political when the pastor decried those who wax nostalgic about the way things once were."
He said, "I hear all the time the expression 'the good old days. Well, the good old days, we forget they have been good for some, but they weren’t good for everybody … It drives me crazy when the captains of the religious right are always calling people back … for blacks to be in the back of the bus …'"
