As part of the Prayer for Barack Obama:
Give him a quiet heart, for our Ship of State needs a steady, calm captain for these times, not a fierce warrior who knee-jerk reacts to every real or perceived threat.
Nice to know that we’re going to start the new Administration off right: which is to say, with a petty slam against the previous one…
PS: By the way, Bishop Robinson? I don’t give a tinker’s dam about the gay thing. Heck, I even support SSM. But I must note that your sneer against a “perceived threat” loses some of its luster when you contemplate that there are radical Islamist groups out there that want to murder you for your sexual orientation. There are, in fact, radical Islamist nations out there that do murder people for their sexual orientation.
So try to remember who your enemies really are. Because if you don’t, they’re more likely to remind you by (wholly unjustified) surprise.
