Comment: Weak point, pound pulpit!

(See in situ)

Weak point, pound pulpit!

It's like the sermon notes left on the pulpit of a church, where there was found this notation, "Weak point, pound pulpit!" Obviously, the preacher wanted to promote a moral ideal of his own that folks listening might recognize as lacking authority, so he decided to create a loud pulpit distraction to help him slip it into his audience's trust.

The lack of clear blameworthiness in Syria has the incessant drumbeat of Obama's bully-pulpit sounding morally weaker with every desperate pounding!

Find out just what any people will quietly submit to and you have the exact measure of the injustice and wrong which will be imposed on them. - Frederick Douglass
