Barack Obama gave a very good speech at the Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta – the church of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. that is worth reading here:

As a white evangelical Christian, I believe it is time that we take deliberate action to break down the institutional divides that exist in America today – in institutions like the church and in the work place. I agree with the dream of Martin Luther King Jr. and believe that it is consistant with what Jesus and the New Testament teaches. We need to come together with all races and economic classes and agree that there is only one right and wrong and repent of our racism and our greed. We need to go to church and fellowship together, work together, eat lunch together, pray together, and be together on making the United States truly equal and free.

I am very thankful for my church and for my black brothers and sisters who  labor, pray and fast so hard for the cause of Christ!
