    The words that the Rev. James A. Forbes chose to share with the roomful of black gay and lesbian faithful might have come straight from the civil rights struggles of the 1960s. Forbes reminded his listeners that discrimination has no place in this world and urged them to lay down the notion put forward by some black ministers that they are less favored by God. "Your job is to get up every day and be grateful to God for your DNA," Forbes said. "It took an artist divine to make this design!" Forbes, senior minister at the Riverside Church, was...

    The Rev. Jesse Jackson praised New York Sen. Hillary Clinton yesterday as "Sister Hillary," after Clinton cited his efforts to overturn the presidential election by challenging the Electoral College vote in Ohio. Speaking at his annual Wall Street Project fundraiser, Jackson said "Sister Hillary" had been an important ally in his fight for those "traumatized by what happened to us as a people and a nation in Ohio." He called Clinton "a light in dark places," who has "stood on the right side of history," according to quotes picked up by the New York Sun. The praise for Clinton came...

The word Mahatma (often employed in ordinary journalistic usage without any definite article, as if it were Mohandas Gandhi’s first name) is actually the Sanskrit word for “Great Soul.” It is a religio-spiritual honorific, to be assumed or awarded only by acclaim, and it achieved most of its currency in the West by association with Madame Blavatsky’s somewhat risible “Theosophy” movement, forerunner of many American and European tendencies to be found in writers, as discrepant as Annie Besant and T.

From Andrew Roberts in The Wall Street Journal: Joseph Lelyveld has written a generally admiring book about Mohandas Gandhi, the man credited with leading India to independence from Britain in 1947. Yet “Great Soul” also obligingly gives readers more than enough information to discern that he was a sexual weirdo, a political incompetent and a fanatical faddist—one who was often downright cruel to those around him.

    ... So please do not be fooled by the new "Obamerica" that is seeking to back the Muslim Brotherhood as an overall non-democratic solution to leadership voids and violent regimes in the region. Do not be fooled when Palestinians tell us that they subscribe to peaceful tactics imitating Gandhi or Martin Luther King. Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasralla is no Martin Luther King; Fatas leaders Mahmoud Abbas and Khaled Mashaal are no advocates for Ghandi's methods no matter how strenuously the leftist press labors to create that image. In the real world, murder is murder -- unlike the underworld of terrorists...
  • Bamboozled: Two Recent Biographies Shed New Light on Liberal Icons (Gandhi and Malcom X)

    Did you hear that ripping sound? Two liberal icons known by their silly stage names — Mahatma Gandhi and Malcolm X — have just been torn down from their sanctified perches thanks to a pair of massively researched but finally damning new biographies. Both men, it turns out, were at pains to take on phony identities. Each hid his homosexuality, each was racist, each took pains to manufacture favorable coverage, each was driven by petty hatreds instead of shining ideals — each of these supposedly principled figures was an out-and-out phony. Perhaps the most delicious irony of this myth-busting is...

    When an Indian-born man I knew a couple of decades ago expressed an intense dislike for Mohandas Gandhi, I found it a bit surprising. Wasn’t the “Great Soul,” that quintessential 20th-century icon, India’s George Washington? That certainly is the narrative created by historians — who, history has taught us, can tell a lie — and works such as Richard Attenborough’s award-winning 1982 film Gandhi. But there is a reason why Indian-born novelist Salman Rushdie responded to that movie by lamenting, “Deification is an Indian disease. Why should Attenborough do it?” And with Gandhi back in the news owing to a...

    Gandhi loved Jewish architect, biography says March 28, 2011 (JTA) -- Indian leader Mahatma Gandhi left his wife for a German-Jewish architect and weight lifter, a new biography says. The new book, "Great Soul: Mahatma Gandhi and His Struggle with India," by former New York Times executive editor Joseph Lelyveld, reports that Gandhi was in love with Hermann Kallenbach, for whom he left his wife in 1908. Kallenbach was born in Germany but moved to South Africa, where he became a busy architect. He reportedly lived with Gandhi for two years in a house he built in South Africa, according...

    Was Mahatma Gandhi gay? A new book by Pulitzer- Prize winning author Joseph Lelyveld claims the god- like Indian figure not only left his wife for a man, but also harbored racist attitudes. Gandhi, who led India to independence and is a universal symbol of peaceful resistance, had another side -- a more human one. In a biography that hit stores this week -- "Great Soul: Mahatma Gandhi and his Struggle With India," former New York Times reporter Lelyveld insists that Gandhi was gay, or at least bisexual. His lover was Hermann Kallenbach, a German-Jewish architect and bodybuilder. The couple...

    President Obama imagines a world without nuclear weapons, but he does nothing while fanatics in Iran build nukes. On the contrary, Obama reversed longstanding U.S. policy, promising not to retaliate with nuclear weapons against an attack using chemical or biological weapons. We do not have chemical or biological weapons, so the threat of nuclear retaliation was the most effective deterrent we had. What is the result of Obama’s peaceful imaginings? He made chemical or biological attacks more likely, while doing nothing about the ongoing nuclear threat. Liberals confuse imagining something good with actually doing something good. In this, liberals resemble...

    Fruitcake of the Month award must surely go to Lord Lucas, a Conservative hereditary peer, for his remarks in the Lords’ debate on the Academies Bill. On the topic of faith schools, Lord Lucas delivered himself of some opinions and claims that can only be described as mind-boggling: Although I am not religious myself, I would happily send my children to faith schools. However, if we pay for them as state schools, they should be open to all. We should not see in the bill a rowing back from the commitment to include the wider community in faith schools that...

I don't know if you happened to hear what Michelle Bachmann said about peacefully not complying with obamacare? I think that's going to be me. I have read the bill and I know about the provisions that will throw me in prison and really I don't care. I'll be more than happy to go to prison to fight for my freedom.

    President Barack Obama came into office promising hope and change. But he might get more change than he hoped for. By foisting ObamaCare on a deeply unwilling country he might have set the stage for the largest civil disobedience movement since the civil rights era, which, if it plays its cards right, could undo his legislation and his legacy. . . .
  • Gandhi's views on the state

    Unfortunately, many people have the wrong idea about Gandhi, and believe that he was, in modern terms, a Statist. This could not be further from the truth. It is true that he held racist views in the beginning of his law career, which he discarded as he grew older and gained a deepened understanding of the world. Here are some quotes illuminating his real view of the state: It is my firm conviction that if the State suppressed capitalism by violence, it will be caught in the coils of violence itself, and fail to develop nonviolence at any time. The...

    Many ardent fans of Mahatma Gandhi have won the Nobel Peace Prize with the latest being US president Barack Obama, but why was not the 'Apostle of Peace' bestowed with the honour despite being nominated five times? Though he was shortlisted thrice, the selection committees had given different reasons why Gandhi was not conferred the honour, like "he was too much of an Indian nationalist" and that he was "frequently a Christ, but then, suddenly an ordinary politician". One of the committees was also of the view that he was "no real politician or proponent of international law, not primarily...

    WASHINGTON: An ardent admirer of Mahatma Gandhi, U.S. President Barack Obama on Friday joined Indians in praising the ‘apostle of peace’ on his 140th birth anniversary. In a special message on Gandhi Jayanthi, Mr. Obama said: “We must renew our commitment to live up to his ideals and to celebrate the dignity of all human beings.” “Gandhi’s teachings and ideals, shared with Martin Luther King Jr. on his 1959 pilgrimage to India, transformed American society through our civil rights movement,” Mr. Obama said. Noting that Americans owed a lot to Gandhi, Mr. Obama said the “America of today has its...
