I Increasingly Find Conflict Between My Faith and Some Conservative Discourse

Were I to recreate this site, I think it would have no comments section. Disqus is just horrible. I do not recommend it to anyone. And it just helps further what I see on so much social media these days. As much as the internet can bring people together of like mind, it also can help shrill minorities of people think their views are more mainstream than they are. That then emboldens them further.

In the past several months there have been three incidents that have solidified for me that my faith and my politics are starting to collide. While I am a firm believer in the idea of a conservative populism, I see a dangerous trend within the mix of unfortunate shrillness and hostility. That trend is playing out in the comments here at RedState and on social media.

To start, Christian conservatives were roundly assailed by other conservatives for daring to provide aid and comfort to children whose parents had shipped them across the border. Some could not distinguish between giving a child a teddy bear and supporting Mexican drug cartels. It was all one or all the other. In fact, many Christians, myself included, want expedited deportations and a secure border. But we also want to make sure the children, some victims of human trafficking, were taken care of, fed, and comforted.

But to some on the right, that is aiding law breakers. The anger and hysteria directed at conservatives engaged in private charity had all the makings of a leftist police state making us care about how we choose to spend our own money.

The second was bringing Dr. Brantly and his co-worker back to the United States. The number of angry calls into my radio program from well meaning conservatives, comments across social media, opinion columns, agreement thereto, etc. really boggled my mind. Here are two Americans risking their lives to help others and we are supposed to turn our back on them, leave them there, or criticize their decision to go in the first place? That’s not the America I know or love. The level of outright anger, fear, and bitterness over the decision to take care of American citizens and the lack of knowledge and understanding that formed the foundation for the anger, fear, and bitterness really left me wondering what is going on.

The last is the present situation in Ferguson, MO. The rush to win a fight and lay blame instead of mourning a loss and praying for a situation just leaves me perplexed. The rush to “change the narrative” with bad facts to replace bad facts by some folks who keep the ichthys on their car unsettles me.

http://www.redstate.com/2014/08/21/my-faith-a...

.... a growing number of conservatives are showing more willingness to drive from the public square those who urge greater measures of Christian grace and charity than they prefer.

the American Taliban, a.k.a the Tea Party. real Christians beware.

Hell... The hijackers trained right under the Clinton administration's nose even when flight instructors pointed out the "odd" training where the perps were only interested in learning to fly specific airliner models but could care less about landing. This isn’t the first time the Clinton gang dropped the anti-terrorism ball. Judicial Watch previously obtained documents from the Department of State (“Terrorism/Osama bin Laden: Who’s Chasing Whom?” showing that as far back as 1996, the Clinton administration knew of and ignored bin Laden’s terrorist plans against the United States.

"The New York Times, reporting on Judicial Watch’s find in 2005, noted:“State Department analysts warned the Clinton administration in July 1996 that Osama bin Laden’s move to Afghanistan would give him an even more dangerous haven as he sought to expand radical Islam “well beyond the Middle East,” but the government chose not to deter the move, newly declassified documents show.”

You can be sure the Clinton machine would prefer these revelations to go down the memory hole. But it is clear that both the failure to prevent the Sept. 11 attack and the Benghazi scandal can be added to the list of questions posed as that machine rolls on."

And of course we have the recent released video of Billy Clinton, bragging that he could have gotten Bin Laden, the day before 9-11...he could have prevented it. He chose not to. Just like O'bama towards Islamic State, he thought bin Laden was incapable of doing anything. Two dumb democrats.

Idiots are people like you who want to go to war with a barbaric group of rag tag radicals. Yes, as one political science professor said, "They have to be eliminated, they have to be annihilated, they have to be stopped." But, as he added, boots on the ground do not need to be American. European governments provided ISIS with millions of dollars in ransom and it is the "people in the Middle East who must to be willing and motivated to stop ISIS."

Obama is right...No boots on the ground!!

Reagan's famous speech, played a very, very small role in the fall of the Berlin Wall. It was Mikhail Gorbachev's reforms and East German protesters who deserve credit not Reagan.

You people really need to educate yourselves. Look up the reforms of glasnost (openness) and perestroika (restructuring).

Fact is Reagan out of office by the time the wall collapsed in the summer of 1989, and his speech had received very little coverage in the media. You people are living a lie.

<quoted text> Who won the cop or the robber sonic boy according to you?
Given what happened in Ferguson, the community had every right to be angry. The police bungled their handling of the matter, became very defensive, and behaved more like a paramilitary unit than a police force. Property damage and violence by the citizenry cannot be excused, but is also the result of a community seeing those who are to protect and serve instead suiting up and playing soldier.

http://www.redstate.com/2014/08/15/must-we-ha...

so the polls say....the cop lost. and will keep losing.

and how can you even ask if an unarmed dead kid won anything? other then a lack of brain cells?
