Wanna Get God into the Schools? Update.

I want to thank all for their suggestions about how better to handle material like this, expecially civil_truth.

What did I mean in the home post?  Well, Obama was a hook, not the story.  But just the hook is something to ponder on.  There’s a lot in that piece to chew on, which can be good or bad . 

Regarding Obama, Judeo-Christian religion tells us to beware of false prophets.  So, we have to be on guard.  But it also tells us to have faith.  God tests us.  But He also provides.  And He teaches us to forgive.  He also works in mysterious ways, and He brings us great gifts in strange packages sometimes.  So maybe we can forgive the drugs as a young man.  Maybe we can forgive the comment about clinging to guns and religion. 

America has a way of having the right president at the right time –Washington, Lincoln, FDR, Truman, Kennedy, Reagan, some of them deeply flawed, but all seeming to be the right person for the moment.  I believe right at 9/11 and following, George W. Bush was the right man for the job.  He kept us safe.  No small accomplishment, that the history books will not be able to ignore.

If Rush Limbaugh is seeking to tear the country for the sake of building his own financial empire, he’s lost his way, and I hope he sees the error.  Because he has real talent.  He has the capacity to do real good work.

Right here.  The Internet is very powerful.  God didn’t invent it.  We did.  But He gave us incredible capacity to do it.   Now, it’s saving children.    The Internet is today’s great equalizer, like the Colt Peacemaker of the Old West.  Or rather, God is the Great Equalizer.
