As I sit here and listen to Hannity and Colmes on XM Radio(Sirius? what’s that?) and hear Mr. Falwell say, “You can’t be an evangelical Christian and vote for John Kerry” I cringe.
I’ve got a couple problems with this interview overall…they have Mr. Falwell and another minister debating Faith and Politics and how they intertwine. How friggin dangerous and disgusting is this?
Anyway, Falwell’s comments don’t surprise me. He’s much better when he has time to prepare. Like Pat Robertson, when he speaks off the cuff after getting alittle stirred up they can both say some incredibly stupid things. Remember what they said after 9/11? How it was God’s Wrath on America? Maybe it was…maybe it wasn’t. I’m sure I’ll know God’s Wrath if I’m ever in the midst of it but I’m pretty sure that the god who destroyed the Earth with a flood, destroyed two cities with fire, and gave up His only Son for my sins can do much bigger things in His Wrath than destroy a couple buildings. That’s a pretty harsh statement but I hope you, dear reader, understands where I’m coming from.
I’m a Christian, Saved by Grace and baptized by immersion. Everything I am comes from a gracious and loving God. Without Him, I am nothing. There are billions of others that believe the previous three sentences. Many voted for George W. Bush. Many voted for John Kerry. Many more didn’t and couldn’t vote for either man. For Falwell to judge the hearts of people based on what ballot they punched is nothing short of pure lunacy.
