The Reverend Leon’s Easter Sunday homily took many by surprise. No such fiery rhetoric was heard at Obama’s inauguration or for that matter at the inauguration of George W. Bush either, which Leon also spoke at. It was a surprise to all, the media, the attendees and yes, even the President himself. However, Obama probably liked it. It fits in with his Zeitgeist of America. His anti-colonial, built-on-slavery perspective that makes high taxation, oppressive regulation and the squandering of the nation’s assets a perfect solution for the past sins of the oppressors; although they will never pay enough from Obama’s point of view. If we are lucky there will be something left when he’s gone and we can clean up the mess.
