Robertson Suggests God Smote Sharon
The story from CNN is here....here...
Let's face it. CNN is not the most nuetral news organization in the world...The epitath of Commie News Network, has been well earned. But, for the sake of argument, we'll assume that the story is accurate.
My position is, for what it's worth, anyway, that idiot comments like this make us all look bad. Look, if G-d was going to clip somebody one would think Usama would be up there on the list. How G-d works, what he does, is his realm. We have the Bible and Spirit to guide us to do His will. Since we live in a republic, WE are Ceasar, and are morally obligated to vote, based upon the principals of His word.
We as conservatives, despite having over 70% of the American electorate agreeing with us, on the issues, overall, can name about 9 senators who could be called conservative, less than 20% of the House, who could be called conservative, and a President, who is sometimes conservative at best....President Bush's support stems from his promise to appoint strict constructionalist Federal Judges.
To put it bluntly, we are miserable at getting our people elected and getting our agenda passed.
Comments like the one Roberson made, and has made, are symptomatic of this. Robertson is about 90% correct, from a conservative viewpoint, when he speaks. It is the 10% that kills us.
Instead of analyzing the Wrath of G-d, I would suggest, we hit issues hard, which is something we have yet to do, and actually start winning some elections, and getting legislation passed, for once.
