Who would you rather have as a neighbor:

The Bakers, a white dysfunctional Christian family struggling with unemployment, addiction, violence and abuse, or...

The Bakrs, a functional black Islamic family that is fortunate enough to be free of many of the issues facing the Bakers?

I'd prefer the family that doesn't have members going in and out of prison and is less likely to smash their car into mine or even one of my children.

The same goes for my choice of president. I'd rather have a candidate who happens to be agnostic, a fundamentalist Christian, a Muslim, a Jew, or a Mormon as long as she possesses good judgment and will serve the common good. Maybe it's time to see who has hijacked the party of Lincoln and turned it into the grotesque and cynical caricature of itself. Then maybe we should check on whatever happened to the Democrats' spine.
