Did Anyone Else ...

... see the L.C. priest on FOX & Friends Sunday just now?

I'm predicting a volatile mixture of feces and fanblades at St. Blog's ... incoming in 5 ... 4 ... 3 ... 2 ...

Nope. What happened?

They were interviewing the priest about whether or not Gov. Palin has a "Rev. Wright problem" because of her religious beliefs and/or those of some of the churches she has attended.

The priest responded along the lines of faith healing and speaking in tongues being Biblical and just not considered that far out of the mainstream of American religiosity. Therefore, he said, none of the charges against Gov. Palin are likely to "stick" (his word).

So far, no big deal.

But then he went a step further. He made a comparison. Had he just said that the reason the Rev. Wright stuff "stuck" to Obama is because denunciations of America, such as "God damn America!" are considered way outside the mainstream of American religious thought. But that's not the direction he took. Instead, he said that Sen. Obama's middle name has a certain religious implication for many Americans and that therefore something like that is much more likely to "stick" than Gov. Palin's religious background as Assembly of God.

I was pretty shocked to hear him say that. I really thought he was going in the direction of distinguishing Gov. Palin's "weird" religious beliefs as being less offensive to Americans than denunciations of America and racial-tinged commentary from the pulpit, so my jaw dropped when he mentioned Sen. Obama's middle name instead.

That L.C. priest on Fox, he's known to hedge his bets and endear himself to the world. He is orthodox on some matters, on others, he squirms and hides so as not to offend his coworkers sensibilities.

I second what Tito said. Isn't this the same priest that said another Fr. Euteneur was out of line for condemning Sean Hannity's promotion of contraception in Africa?
