With the recent scrutiny of Barack Obama’s minister’s seemingly insane comments about race and politics, Americans are looking for guidance as to what those comments mean for a follower of the minister’s church. While Barack Obama has distanced himself from Rev. Jeremiah Wright, even going so far as to “condemn” those comments, the fact remains that religious leaders have been saying some crazy-a$$ $h1t for years.

Wright’s comments center mostly around race—the usual getting pulled over by cops in my Mercedes, not being able to buy a house in a white neighborhood-type stuff. Read Eugene Kane if you need a refresher on that. Anyhow, a lot of people were also insulted by Wright’s 9/11 comment about chickens coming home to roost. This statement makes little sense, though it might in context, but since no news sources (or Obama) are analyzing it in context, we too will take it out of context. One might also say 9/11 was like the grass is always greener, or like father like son, or like cleanliness is next to Godliness. Anyhow, Real Wisconsin News has found some fun quotes for you to consider from other religious leaders, most of whom have also influenced political leaders, or even run for office. Of course, the quotes might also be satire, so take it with a grain of salt (but don’t tell others to take 9/11 that way).

Pat Robertson should probably stop talking altogether, but until he does, he is “a religious leader” who says things like this: “You say you're supposed to be nice to the Episcopalians and the Presbyterians and the Methodists and this, that, and the other thing. Nonsense, I don't have to be nice to the spirit of the Antichrist." - The 700 Club, January 14, 1991. “Just like what Nazi Germany did to the Jews, so liberal America is now doing to the evangelical Christians.” And this one’s for the ladies, "I know this is painful for the ladies to hear, but if you get married, you have accepted the headship of a man, your husband. Christ is the head of the household and the husband is the head of the wife, and that's the way it is, period." But wait, Robertson tried to match Wright on this one about 9/11: “We have insulted God at the highest levels of our government. And, then we say 'why does this happen?' Well, why it’s happening is that God Almighty is lifting His protection from us."

High schools in Wisconsin have been able to retain their Native American mascots under the rule of Scott Walker, but Menomonee Falls has decided to go ahead and change the high school mascot without any nudging from the state. While it might first appear that the school is keeping the same mascot, it is, in fact, changing from a Native American Indian to an Indian from India in order to honor an upsurge in students of Asian Indian descent. Principal Dr. Jim Coach said at a press conference, “We never had many actual American Indian students in Menomonee Falls for us to honor with the mascot name or to dress up as Chief Wampum. This move will give us more access to students to be honored by the mascot, since roughly 2% of our student body of 1500 are Indians from India, and that means at least ten kids. Maybe twenty.” Dr. Coach added, "It's pretty simple: we're going from American Indian to Indian American. Citizens of Menomonee Falls have been disappointed for years that their mascot was not able to marginalize a greater percentage of the local minority population. However, with an influx of families from India making their homes in Waukesha County, residents of the Falls have welcomed the opportunity to ridicule the group. Important citizen Janelle Whitefolk said, “It wasn’t fun when Native American Indians got upset, since we couldn’t tell them to go back to their own country if they didn’t like it. I did tell them to head back to the Rez, which was clever, but it will be so much better when we can tell people to head back to India with other illegals.” The school made the decision partially because so many uniforms already have the name “Indians” written on them, so nothing will have to change. The large F with a feather will be replaced with a jewel-encrusted Indian Elephant that will represent both the Indians and the strong Republican ideology in Menomonee Falls. The mascot at games will be a convenience store clerk named Ranbir (the brave warrior), hopefully played by an actual Indian (Asian or American). The school board also hopes to acquire a sacred cow from a local farm, and the school has decided to name the cow “Darshit,” which means “To pay respect.” “I can imagine,” said Coach, “when we’re on the football field, moving the ball against Marquette, and the crowd starts screaming, ‘Dar-shit, Dar-shit!’ And the Bollywood halftime shows!” When asked for comment, local American Indian elders crossed their arms and rolled their eyes, presumably in a cultural expression of approval.

After his success at virtually eliminating Milwaukee County government, Scott Walker plans to do the same in Madison. The Milwaukee Republican wants to use the same techniques that he has employed in Milwaukee, along with a powerful line-item veto, in order to overhaul Wisconsin government into a lean and useless entity.
