Apparently I wasn't the only one who was struck by the sheer incongruity and inappropriateness of President Obama's speech.
He's a young man; he'll mature. Let's hope he does so while he's still in office. And, in the interim, let's hope he surrounds himself with a higher grade of advisors going forward. (Come to think of it, Obama's ill-choiced advisors is probably another post for another day.)
Meanwhile, for Christians reading this, let's remember the apostle's admonition, "Pray for those in authority".
And that's the way the US-gazing Ball bounces.
