A Window into Intolerant American Xenophobia

I don't know why I torture myself watching videos like this. I suppose it's good to understand what you're fighting against but this clip, from a new PBS program, disgusts me on so many levels. Listen to the way that this allegedly good Christian woman oozes contempt for just the words "Obama" and "Muslim". Isn't it amazing how so many people in our country have twisted the largely inclusive, caring message of the Bible into an irrational, angry screed of racism, hatred and xenophobia?
