Barack Entered Church for Community Organizing, Plus that Opiate Thing!

Leon Wieseltier has a bit of arch fun with William Kristol's Op-Ed last week on Barack Obama's use of Marxist tropesas the reason people "cling" to religion [oh yeah, guns & prejudice too]. But he gets a bit p-o'd when Andrew Sullivan blurts out that which should not be said:
And now for the grossly undialectical bit. The ink on the Times was not yet dry when Andrew Sullivan rushed to the defense of his idol, I mean Obama. When one types all the time, sooner or later everything will be typed, and so Sullivan, in his fury against Kristol, typed this: "A non-Christian manipulator of Christianity is calling a Christian a liar about his faith." Ponder that early adjective. It is Jew baiting. I was not aware that only Christians can judge Christians, or that there are things about which a Jew cannot call a Christian a liar. If Kristol is wrong about Obama, it is not because Kristol is a Jew. So this fills me with a certain paschal wrath. Nice little blog you have there, Obama boy. Pity if frogs or locusts should happen to it. Let my people be!

Sullivan does have an identity crisis on afrequent basis. And that makes him touchy about other peoples' identity.
