Commentary By Ron Beasley
The religious right was not always about abortion and gays. It was originally all about desegregation, that's what Falwell and Robertson were preaching against. Opposition to desegregation was becoming increasingly politically incorrect. This was when Francis Schaeffer made his appearance and convinced the religious right they should concentrate on the issue of abortion. But the old prejudices die hard and we have this from Pat Robertson:
�What is this �mac and cheese�? Is that a black thing?�
Now I'm as Arian Ayran as you can get - blond hair, blue eyes - an English father and a Swedish mother. But I love mac and cheese. Not that disgusting stuff from Kraft - I make it from scratch with extra sharp cheddar. No Pat, it's not a black thing - its a great meal for those of us who have not made millions pushing hate in the name of God. There are times I wished I believed in hell so there would be some appropriate place for you Pat to go.
