When church services become political rallies

But isn’t it funny how during the George W. Bush administration, the media were obsessed with the idea that we were headed straight for a theocracy?

If a campaign mailer included a picture of Bush with anything religious, books decrying the fundamentalist overtaking of our country shot to the top of the bestseller lists.

When President Obama uses his Faith-based Initiative Office to lobby for health care insurance reform, media silence. When Jarrett goes after Republicans at Ebenezer, it’s no big deal.
