(some pictures of the greatest face to ever hit the big screen)
I rarely read the syndicated columnists in the paper because you can usually spot their politcal colors from a mile away. The title of Cal Thomas' column caught my eye today, it's called "Where do Conservative Christians go from Here?". I've never read this guy's column before, & I'm really not sure which side of the political fence he's on. I was hoping it wasn't going to be another leftist gloating over the democrats reclaiming of power in the last election, & it wasn't.
One of my pet peeves of politics are those who use their faith (well, religion would probably be a better word to use) to try & gain political power, or those who feel as if politics and faith are interwoven. The "Vote Pro-Life" bumper stickers really bother me. It's seems to me to be an excuse for those who don't believe in the right of abortion to turn a blind eye to any other issue. I believe Christian politicians should see Jesus Christ as the way, the truth & the life and an example on how to live their lives, not as a political symbol to attract votes.
For those of you who don't care to read the column, I'll give you an excerpt.
Conservative Christians are fond of quoting God: "For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, declares the Lord" (Isaiah 55:8). Could it be that the way of politics is man's way and, thus, not God's way.
Amen. Read the article, it makes more sense.
On a happier note, check out Dan's blog, he's heading to Montana preparing to head over to Iraq.
