How is this possible?
Over on my main blog, I pointed out that leftists are doing nothing but driving votes to McCain with their smears of Palin. What I don’t understand is how so many people can be so clueless about Christians and Christianity that they believe otherwise.
This isn’t Catholic. It’s Christian. Pan-Christian. Man is fallen, and none of us are perfect. We will never be perfect. We will always sin.
For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God
God commendeth His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us
The Word of God is clear. Sin is not hypocrisy. Sin is reality, because we can never be perfect. Hypocrisy is when we continue to sin, knowingly, and pretend that we do not.
What mystifies me is how so many people can not understand this, even if today, they are slobbering athetists. If they were raised Catholic, did they not learn their catechism or go to confirmation classes? If they were raised Protestant, did they not go to Sunday School? Did their parents give them no religious foundation?
How can so many people raised in yes, a Christian nation and a Christian culture, misunderstand what is perhaps the most basic and fundamental tenet of Christianity?
What is particularly depressing, however, is this. Bristol Palin is going to have and keep her baby. She’s going to marry the father (she has an engagement ring on in the photos from the Dayton announcement). She is doing the right, indeed, the moral thing. Yet many seem to think this is something she and her family should be ashamed of. Have we sunk so low?
I have been getting spammed by trolls spouting such nonsense as, “If this had happened to Obama’s daughter, you’d be screaming your head off!”
Well, no, provided that like Bristol, she were doing the moral thing, having the baby and marrying the father. I’d feel sorry for the poor girl, that she had to go through this in this way. But given that Obama has revealed that he thinks children are a punishment, and not a blessing, and that he believes that children born alive should be left to die, it would be far more likely that he’d bundle his daughter off to abort her baby.
