There is perhaps no better defining example of the two main opposing worldviews than this Presidential election. Kerry and his ilk are determined to use any distortion, any lie, any change of position to accomodate the shifting winds… all because they “know what’s best” for the rest of us. In other words, because they are “the enlightened” and the rest of us are just poor ignorant slobs, anything they do is OK because the end justifies the means.
In many ways this helps explain some of what has puzzled me for quite some time. How is it that Bush is constantly portrayed by so many as not just someone they disagree with, but as someone totally vile and evil? In the first place, I think this says much more about the critics themselves than it does about him…psychologists call it “projection”. More importantly, this type of portrayal never squares with the CONSISTENT picture I get of an honorable, basically decent man who often has the opportunity but refuses to savage his opponents in the same manner as they treat him. In other words, he gives every evidence of someone LIVING OUT the Christianity he professes. His critics may not take much comfort in that… but I sure do!
Here’s what started me thinking about this…
