A Republican Priest's Attack on Obama

Here’s Rockville Centre-based priest Jim Lisante, taking shots at Barack Obama during last night’s New York State Republican fund-raising dinner in Midtown.

“And one more thing, Lord: please tell Senator Obama that maybe change is a good thing, and that maybe he should think about changing his favorite preacher. I know a lot more of us would be comfortable with his judgment skills if he hadn’t sat for twenty years through those words offered by his preacher of division, bigotry, and, honestly, half-truths, without a word of objection from Senator Obama. That is, until the media brought it up. Now, he doesn’t want any part of the guy. I’m willing to be his new preacher.”

Lisante added, “One final thing, Lord, I promise. This November, could you keep an eye on all of us and see that the change we embrace comes from Arizona, and not Illinois?”

Lisante, it seems, still revels in being the most partisan priest ever.
