Faith Blogger Considers America Divided

This town's most prolific scribe on the topic of faith & morals shares a spiritual missive and inspired hope for election crunch time.

Check-it:

Can faith help us through this divisive time?

Americans are working through one of the most frustrating years in our collective memory -- and it's not yet clear whether we can emerge from 2020 with any possibility that the "United" in our "United States" name will mean anything...

"We have been led by a divisive president who seems to understand none of the rules of basic civility."

While Democrat 'leaders', Hollywood stars, talking CNN (etc.) heads all encourage BLM/AntiFa thugs to riot, burn, loot and assault citizens, neighborhoods and business', Billy thinks harsh language is the problem.

Scale and facts count. Billy is firmly ensconced on the side of chaos, disruption and destruction in his and the Progressive lefts quest, for a one party, totalitarian Chinese Communist, social credit style system that renders the Constitution a palimpsest for the soup de jour legislative initiatives that will replace the 1st and 2nd Amendment as a penultimate move prior to the coda, which is the de facto destruction of the entirety of the Constitution itself.

"The problem is that untrained, untamed people become very upset when others disagree with them, easily falling into a dualistic, 'I'm right and you're wrong — end of story' stance."

This places Billy into the "Lack Of Self Awareness Hall Of Fame". Again, scale and facts really do count. The Progressive left is literally "Hair On Fire" crazy everyday, every minute every second with hatred and vitriol for ANYTHING anyone else does not agree with.

Billy and his friends on the left, are the Guidons of the "Cancel Culture" and political correctness and yet, here he is, lecturing us on keeping an open mind.

Billy is a failed wanna be politician and, like the pope, a gasbag unworthy of serious consideration.

Yep. Every time I hear some fool say “he’s not presidential “ , I say, if being presidential is getting us into Vietnam, beruit, Panama, Kuwait, Iraq, Afghanistan, and on and on and on, I say give me a president that may lack civility but doesn’t think his job is to drop bombs on people around the world

^^^ yep.

Tammeus probably pines for the civility and pomp and circumstance of the president Buchanan years, and laments the devisive and chaotic leadership of Abraham Lincoln
People say Biden is a return to dignity in the White House while ignoring the “dignity” of blowing up a wedding reception in the Middle East among the 26,000 bombs he dropped on innocent women and children
Apparently words trump uses are more disturbing to democrats than the cries of children in the rubble of their homes. Biden and obama and Bush will go down in history as a stain on this country because they will never be able to justify the carnage they left around the world

chuck said...

I am glad you included Bush, he was just as bad.

Silvestor orgalthorp said...

Bush at first had reason to go into Afghanistan
But the he goes into Iraq and almost got us into a war with Pakistan
But he spoken so calmly and presidential , didn’t he?

Billy has done as much to promote division among Christian's. I suspect he is a member of the KANSAS CITY ATHEIST COALITION...do you deny that BILL TAMMEUS?

Bill is always sure to let you know he hates evangelicals. We get it Bill. O.K.?

Bill needs to embrace his true identity. He contributes exactly zero to a discussion of spirituality. He is a good fit as a lame left-wing blogger.

Hey Chuck, I had to look up your word "palimpsest" and I learned something new today. Thanks! Look at all the great stuff this country's gotten by civil President's. I'll take Trump's style of getting things done over the Miss Manner's Presidents. If Biden is elected Critical Race Theory will be the law of the land.

Bill's conclusion "White Evangelicals as Outliers" comments says it all. The divisiveness that Bill wants to parse and divide our population into groups feeds the type of discord he claims he wants to avoid. What is an evangelical? Who is "white"? What if he included Filipino Catholics born between 1965 and 1976 ? How would their demographic view critical race theory? Perhaps we can create a politically convenient narrative about a group of people of our own making and make a bogey man that we can all blame as ignorant and the root of all problems.

Bill has it out for those that think and act differently than he does. Instead of creating some monolithic bigoted category to group people into, perhaps he could recognize that their is nuance and diversity among groups of people (even among...*gasp*...white people and....*gasp*....evangelicals) that pollsters can't capture in their BS surveys.

^^Perhaps you should worry about yourself instead of somebody else.

If you have faith, read the Bible. It says that the world and society will degenerate. That the ecology will degenerate. That people's hearts will "grow cold". That there will be a increase in wars and hunger, and illness/plagues.

So thats what I believe. Really think people can turn the world around? No!
