Jesus was a community organizer. Pontius Pilate was a Governor.

    If Jesus were running for president, he would also get grilled by the media. Mary didn't know who her baby's daddy was? Scandalous icon_eek.gif

    In Defense of Community Organizers:

    In her acceptance speech last night at the Republican National Convention, Vice Presidential nominee and Alaska Governor Sarah Palin said, "I guess a small-town mayor is sort of like a `community organizer,' except that you have actual responsibilities."

    Nominally, her words were an assault on Barack Obama's early career as a community organizer on Chicago's south side. But the impact reaches farther than that and is a direct affront to the thousands who have dedicated their lives to making America great.

    Community organizing is the heart and soul of American democracy. We are privileged to live in a country where people with the energy and passion to dream of a better world can put in the sweat and shoe leather to build social movements from the ground up. Indeed, if it weren't for the sacrifice of organizers, we wouldn't have many of the opportunities we take for granted today -- from the 40-hour work week and the minimum wage to protections for a woman's right to choose and the right of African Americans to vote.

    In fact, Sarah Palin would never have been able to take the stage as the nominee at a national political convention if it weren't for community organizers of the past who dreamed of, fought for, and won the right of women's suffrage.

    Americans dedicate themselves to public service in many ways, and everyone who gives of themselves for the betterment of our nation -- from small-town mayors to community organizers -- should be recognized and honored for their valuable contribution.

    Tell Governor Palin to apologize for her remarks regarding community organizers.

    One thing that really irks me is; how political science terms are thrown around without any regard for their definition. Jesus wasn't at all a Liberal. The majority of Americans have it all wrong. The media taught America our Poli Sci terms and got it all wrong.

    Lou Dobbs doesn't know the meaning of the term Middle Class, and Obama has it wrong too, as does the majority of Americans.

    No wonder America is in a mess, our education system is screwed up.

    And one other thing, here's the website to the community group Barack Obama helped to found and a year later Michelle became executive director of. [url]http://www.publicallies.org/atf/cf/%7BFBE0137A-2CA6-4E0D-B229-54D5A098332C%7D/logo.gif[/url]

    Can you believe federal tax payer dollars are going to this crap? This is just the kind of pork barrel BS McCain wants to put an end to.

    Well, unfortunately for him - one 'community organizer' we all know made a number of disparaging remarks about the bible - which has all kinds of Christians mad at him. (I'm no bible thumper, for the record - in fact I have no use for them). The Christian groups are spreading the word, and are talking trash about the guy. How smart was it for this poor guy to alienate masses of people who might have voted for him? Not a good plan! He needed those votes!
    Memo to the community organizer (I call him that because I understand there is some problem with his name) and that message is: THINK about what comes out of your mouth, Pal! You don't need to lose voters!

    [Here's] A Message from Angela Glover Blackwell, Founder and CEO of PolicyLink:

    This week, we've heard a lot of mocking of community organizers [at the Republican Convention]. Former New York Gov.
    George Pataki even took time to ask, "What in God's name is a community organizer?"

    Well, governor, I'll tell you.

    Community organizers are the ones who fill in the cracks left behind by government and the private sector. They are the ones who helped regular people change their block, their neighborhood, their city, even their country. They are the ones who are there to stop absent landlords, rally for new parks or hold crooked politicians accountable. They are the ones who are needed most by those most in need.

    Without community organizers, we wouldn't have had the civil rights movement. Without community organizers, we wouldn't have even the most basic labor protections. Without community organizers, parents wouldn't have the power to make sure their kids' school was up to snuff.

    There are many kinds of experience we need in our political leaders. To dismiss the hard, vital work of community organizers is an insult to everyone who has ever carried a picket sign, spoken out for justice or rallied for a better, more just world.
