Reverend Joseph Lowery will be giving the benediction at Barack Obama’s inauguration event. Here’s what he told The Washington Post about Obama’s victory.
“For white folks in the South to vote for a black man as president is drastic. This is revolutionary," Lowery says. "The Democratic Party can take credit, but the Democrats didn't do it. God did it. God was in the plan. Nobody else could have gotten these white folks to vote for a Negro named Barack Obama."
It’s nice to see God get credit for something. Reverend Lowery is a dynamic speaker who can still “bring it” at 87 years old. The Obama campaign has told him he’ll have two minutes for the benediction. Yeah right. Good luck trying to slow him down. The whole article is here.
