A Lament for Our Degradation

Why did I feel such revulsion when our American president uttered a profane description of nations in Africa (and the nation of Haiti)?  First, I work with international students from around the world, and I do not want to unnecessarily offend them.  Secondly, I am deeply concerned that our president is degrading the American people, and especially members of his political party as well as his core support base (evangelicals) in ways previously unimaginable and tragic.
