"I know this will make Paul Fidalgo uncomfy, but..."
CFI mouthpiece Paul Fidalgo isn't comfy with President Obama's eulogy for slain friend and pastor Clementa Pinckney. Here's Paul:
"I'm clenching my teeth a bit, I have to say. I'm not at all comfy with the president telling us what God's 'ideas' are, or telling African Americans that the church is and always has been at the center of their life."
Obama meant the black church. I quote from the eulogy: "That's what the black church means. Our beating heart. The place where our dignity as a people is inviolate."
I'm not sure I've ever heard anyone argue with the claim that religion is central to the African American experience. Especially when the claimant is African American, and the president, and he's making the claim in an African American church. Just saying.
I'm curious to know--were you, dear readers, comfy with Obama's eulogy? Me? Highly comfy with it. Moved and inspired, in fact. But that's me. How do you feel?
Please spare a moment to take the Comfy Quiz:
Obama's eulogy made me:
1. Highly comfy
2. Moderately comfy
3. Only fairly comfy
4. Slightly uncomfy
5. My Comfy Zone was violated
6. I'll never feel comfy again.
Thanks, and have a comfy day.
