RIP Nelson Mandela
It was this generosity of spirit that made Mandela, who died on Thursday at the age of 95, a global symbol of sacrifice and reconciliation in a world often jarred by conflict and division.
This pretty much sums up the Republican view of America.
The Bible is a great tool for obscuring the concept of freedom and convincing slaves that their chains are virtuous. It’s astounding that the majority of their descendants hold fast to the religion imposed on their ancestors by force. But this is can be said of most Christians, regardless of race, because at some point in your family history it is pretty likely that coercion played a role in conversion.
