Wherever politics tries to be redemptive, it is promising too much. Where it whishes to do the work of God, it becomes, not divine, but demonic.
Pope Benedict XVI
“…certain portions of the African American community are doing as bad, if not worse, uh, and recognizing that my fate remains tied up with their fates, uh, that my individual salvation is not going to come about without a collective salvation for the country. Um, unfortunately I think that recognition requires we make sacrifices and this country is not always been willing to make the sacrifices necessary to bring about a new day and a new age.”Barac Obama
