What Brand of Christianity is That?

I usually don't interfere with the hows and whys of final tributes. Good rhetoric, regardless of it's veracity, can still be pleasing. But there are exceptions... From the funeral of Ken Lay, a man of the cloth had this to say:
"He reached out to touch many people from many backgrounds ... many economic levels ... that included minorities like me."

"Ken Lay was neither black nor poor, but I'm angry because Ken Lay was a victim of a lynching."

"The folks who don't like him have had their say. I'd like to have mine ... (Like Jesus Christ) he was crucified by a government that mistreated him."
