I don't know what you what me to say. I have friends that are not even close to the same ideology as I am. That doesn't make me love them any less. However, if someone continually acted in a way that I felt was reprehensible, I'd distance myself from them. The President did the same. Paula Deen's endorsements and sponsors have done the same. You can only hang around someone toxic to you or your business for a certain amount of time before it affects you negatively. Her sponsors chose to cut ties quickly, as was their right to do. Obama chose to give Rev. Wright a little more leeway because of the long-time friendship, and it still didn't change anything, so Obama left the church.
"If I take death into my life, acknowledge it, and face it squarely, I will free myself from the anxiety of death and the pettiness of life - and only then will I be free to become myself." ~ Martin Heidegger
