Watauga County denizen and spokesperson for God Franklin Graham said on CNN Thursday night, "I think the president's problem is that he was born a Muslim, his father was a Muslim. The seed of Islam is passed through the father like the seed of Judaism is passed through the mother."
It's a pure mystification what he was actually saying, but in this particular instance the word "seed" would appear to be a synonym for "taint," as in "Taint no doubt that Obama ain't one of us."
There are echoes here of the "mark of Cain," the clear suggestion being that somewhere on Obama's carcass is a little crescent moon, embroidered in blood, and probably a scimitar too.
This is pure 19th century American racism, resurrecting itself by the intervention of the Hand of the Lord, which hath given unto the Reverend Graham the ability to trace the invisible "seed" and the curse of Cain (which any Old South preacher in approximately 1850 could confidently tell you was the black skin color of African slaves, which both explained their station in life and also conveniently justified that enslavement).
If The Very Righteous, Quite Extraordinary Reverend Graham can recognize "seeds" at 20 paces, he might catch a glimpse of the noxious ragweed in his own soul.
