It's sad and pathetic.
America has become so divided by ideological extremes fueled by the devolution of news media from journalism to ideological advocacy that it's pret' near impossible to hold rationale conversations on challenges to the republic.
For example, consider 45.
He's lionized or demonized.
Either people hate him more than they love America and what's best for the republic or adore him more than they love America and what's best for the republic.
For example, Islam.
We can't talk about Islam in public; because if we talk about what's bad about it according to their manuals of operation like, you know, the Koran, we're haters. If we talk about what's good about it according to their manuals of operation like, you know, the Koran, we're idiots.
So I expect the assassination of one of the world's most notorious savages - the Islamofascistnutball Suleimaniac - will fuel the divide even more.
It only takes a spark to get a fire going...
What can we do?
Well, JP, AK, AOC, NP, FG or even KFC haven't called me.
Have any of 'em called you?
Oh, maybe we can write something at the next church meeting and send it to...
That'll make a difference.
No one outside of parochial church groups pays attention to church declarations anymore because churches are as divided as everybody else.
I suggest something that no one seems to be considering in DC or down at ABC, CBS, NBC, Fox, CNN, MSNBC or ESPN.
How about getting on our knees and surrendering it all to God in a Matthew 5:3 kinda way?
Before you laugh me off and jerk back to supporting who and what haven't worked like, uh, ever...
I recall a friend whose son was a heroin addict.
Understandably, he was distraught with a paralyzing impotence to make any difference in his son's life.
Finally, his wife said, "Don't you know God loves our son even more than we do? Give him back to Jesus. Trust God. You have no other options left."
John 3:16-17 comes to mind.
There's never been a better declaration for life's interrogatives.
Blessings and Love
