Once I was speaking with a black friend of mine who had been interviewed to be a manager at a company that day. I asked him about it. He said, "I am the manager." I said, "Oh, you already heard from them?" He said," No, but I am speaking it into being."
After *cough/laughing* about this and saying, "Say what?", I found that this was a belief practiced at his Church and it was a common way of thinking and believing in the black church in general. The idea is to speak to what you want in your life and make it real, make it happen. Speak it into being.It would explain some things about his actions- the press weenies demanding presidential protocol and actions, Obama making statements that should only come- if at all- from the President and so on.
If that’s the case, it does bring up a couple of questions. Like if Obama’s retired-but-still-active pastor and his replacement do things like scream “God Damn America!” in sermons, are they stating a belief or pushing for action? From the bastard’s actions and words over time(no, as a matter of fact, I don’t like him) I’d imagine it’s the latter.
