Moses [Dan Collins]
I really dig my priest, but he’s from Boston. So, in the readings today he recounts the story of God appointing Joshua to take over where the old man left off. Then he pulls out a children’s book about Harriet Tubman, called Moses, about her faith and her mission to free first herself, then her children, then hundreds of other slaves.
Fine. As I’ve mentioned before, blacks’ association with Israel crossing the Jordan from the land of Pharaoh makes a lot of sense. It’s just that by idolizing The One as a secular savior, they’ve sold their birthright for pottage.
Driving hither and yon, today, I listened to NPR’s “This American Life.” I do not joke when I say that the totally like way inarticulate producer of the show was all like how Obama should be allowed to like smoke so that he doesn’t like have a y’know affair, and it reminds him that he’s still pretty much human, y’know?
