The Rev. Steve Stewart found it necessary to let the public know in an editorial column that he is not a racist. He backed this statement up by saying that he voted for Alan Keyes, a black candidate who ran as an independent. This is a problem for me because I believe in the famous Mark Twain quote, “All that glitters is not gold.”
Why couldn’t the reverend just say what he had to say without bringing up Obama’s ethnicity? Rev. Stewart said that America has turned its back on God; he never mentioned how he came to that conclusion.
