“The thing is, nobodys upset. The MSM arent upset, they just think conservatives, who in their mind are completely intolerant, will abandon her with this revelation. Thats what this is about, hurting her with her conservative base.
Which of course wont happen, because conservative are exactly the opposite of what the left this they are. No group of more forgving of past mistakes, provided we believe the repentence is genuine.
They are completely wasting their time.”
—That is a really good point.
They tried to do the same thing with Reagan and his base because he was a divorcee. Look at how well that turned out for them...
And they completely miss the point about forgiveness, which you correctly emphasize. There are a lot of people who did things that seriously harmed them in their younger years (i.e. drugs, gang membership, etc.) who saved their lives by finding religion. The only thing that matters is where the person is now- not when they were lost and confused.
“a lot of people who did things that seriously harmed them in their younger years”
Those of us who have lived to tell can honestly say with confidence that “only the good die young.” Anyone without something regrettable in his/her past is a bald-faced liar or delusional. There has been only one perfect Man.
