Community Organizer

Below, President Obama comforts a woman after Hurricane Sandy.

It’s comical how the GOP made a big deal in 2008 out of Obama being a community organizer.

My favorite comment on that absurdity was the meme going around saying, “Pontius Pilate was a governor. Jesus was a community organizer.” It’s still true today, with Palin replaced by Romney.

I’m a humanist but I respect that Jesus, as recorded in the Gospels, was a good person and a great moral teacher. To place bankers, private equity partners, and self-serving governors above teachers and community organizers is a grave moral error, something we need to correct if we are to become a beacon of justice for the world.
