Faith and faith
There have been many columns recently in religious and non-religious media about which Party has the most faith. Some of the media even measures faith from a cultural level or a spiritual level. The media blasts Senator Frist because he shows up on a monitor at a religious convention of Christians which is dealing with political issues. Some columnists have written recently about so-called liberal Christians vs conservative Christians. There was outrage that the new Pope Benedict was actually Catholic. The media is worried about real Christians in politics or any of our cultural life. What is so ironic is that in our PC world is that real Christianity is being debated by the very media , politicians, and commetators who disdain religion out and out! And supposedly the public is supposed to listen to these irreligious commentators and be warned against a new Taliban , or Nazis, or Crusades or Council of Trent right here in the USA. Frankly, irreligious people have no foundation to comment upon religion. They are biased from the start. At least, religious people on any level can debate theology with some bearing. For instance, do I think that Democrats are more spiritual than Republicans? Well, it depends on the geographic area in which those Dems live. Surely, down South in the Bible belt there are some Dems who are born again Christians. Now, if I look at the NW, the NE or California and ask the same question, the answer is NO. In fact, polls now show that by and large, there are more religious Republicans and in fact, more born again Christians in the Republican Party than the Democrats. The media hates this. Well , tough. I want all Americans to meet and be filled with Jesus. I make no bones about that. This horrifies the media and the Left. Again. Tough. The nation is far better off with many Americans having religious underpinings, whether they be religious Jews or Christians. No, I do not think Muslims aid this nation. Sorry. Not very PC but so far , these groups have not made the contributions against the war against Islamofacism nor have they been seen as Americans first, and Muslims second. What about Christians? I am a Christian first, Yes, but I am a patriotic American and proud of it. It is freedom , liberty and faith that keeps us strong. Not an elimination of faith, or the contributions that those faithful people have given to America.BTW, even our religious peoples support our military over and against the secular leftist humanists who make up part of our nation. And No , I do not want a theocracy. I want faiths and non-faiths given equal dignity as far as who contributes to our democratic free nation. It is the Leftist secularists who do not want that equity today. And one more thing: do I think there is such a bird as a liberal Christian? Of course, but I would not want to be in their shoes when Jesus returns. Yet, even there, Jesus will decide , not me.
