In fiery sermon, Southern pastor lauds Obama on gay marriage

Updated

Need something to restore your faith in America, amid the dismal economy, the war on women, and the vilification of government workers? 

Check out this remarkable sermon by Pastor Fredererick Haynes, highlighted Monday night by Lawrence O’Donnell on The Last Word.

President Obama, Haynes told his congregation…

…swore an oath to uphold, protect, and defend the Constitution. Not the bible, but the Constitution of the United States. He is not the pastor of the United States. He is the President of the United States. And for the first time in the history of this nation, we have a president who is there to use his position to make the democratic promise available not just for a select few who are up and in, but for everybody, regardless of their race, their creed, their color, or their sexual orientation. 

Inspiring stuff. Watch:
