Minister Blasts the Religious Right at Easter Service

"With President Obama and his family in the pews for Easter Sunday worship, the Rev. Luis Leon at St. John's Episcopal Church in Washington's Lafayette Square took the opportunity to take a shot at political conservatives, arguing from the pulpit that some conservative positions are holding people back," the Washington Post reports.

Said Leon: "It drives me crazy when the captains of the religious right are always calling us back ... for blacks to be back in the back of the bus ... for women to be back in the kitchen ... for immigrants to be back on their side of the border."
