The Women of John McCain; Why you either love or hate them!
Jewish World Review ^ | 10/8/2008 | Samuel Silver

Posted on 10/07/2008 8:18:41 AM PDT by Babwa

The reaction to Governor Sarah Palin’s selection by Senator John McCain has been nothing short of epic. From the first moment people saw and heard her, most either hated her or loved her.

What made her instantaneously extraordinary to both sides of the political spectrum? It has to be more than the media-driven issues.

This election has turned into an unspoken referendum on human nature and the idea of “gender neutrality,” the poster child for the left taught to the past several generations as something real, instead of the imaginary nonsense it is.

Men and women are different – not better or worse, just different. Equal in political and legal rights, but still different. And the radical left doesn’t want you to believe this nor even hear it.

Love the women with McCain. Love them! They are beautiful, accomplished and real! I am including his daughter in that group.

The women of the left are represented most ably by Whoopi Goldberg, Sandra Bernhardt, Barbara Striesand, ...[the list could go on and on}.... They are one and all very ugly human beings on the inside of little value to the human race as a whole. If you'd have asked me 30-40 years ago, I would have said that for a female to be like this is impossible.

They abhor life, freedom and individualism while spewing their ideological hate of those that try to protect such. Sarah Palin represents everything they are against. To feed the evil inside them, they are driven to destroy her.

Beautiful essay! Loved it and agree completely with his view that the genders are immutably different, as the God of Abraham intended. However, I had trouble with one line, which may simply have been ambiguously worded, in which he said that McCain might never have read the description of a good woman in the Book of Proverbs.

It’s not clear whether the author meant that John McCain does not make a point of knowing the contents of the Bible, or whether the author is under the misconception that Christians do not read the Jewish Bible, hence would not have read Proverbs.

While the most motivated Christian believers read the Bible on their own, all those who attend services hear the Christian worship liturgy, which includes readings from both the Jewish Bible and the Gospel of Christ (Old and New Testaments) at every service.

The McCains attend services. Given his age, surely John McCain has heard the contents of the Book of Proverbs, since the churches rotate through the entire scriptures year after year.

I think that sentence was referring to whether McCain had ever heard it sung at a Sabbath dinner in a Jewish home as a song of praise to a wife. He might have heard it with Joe Lieberman.

McCain/Palin vs. Obama/Biden.
On one side we have a naval aviator married to a busty blond beer heiress. His VP candidate is a former beauty queen, the governor of the last frontier state in the Union, hunts caribou, makes moose stew, is raising five children and reminds most married men of the things they love about their wife.

On the other side you have a shady lawyer, married to a shrill, shrewish lawyer, with a vain, incompetent, plagiarizing, lawyer for his VP candidate.

In a rational world, we wouldn't even bother with an election. Go figure.

I would like to see Marie - The Flame of Florida as a White House Congressional liaison. We need a hussy with an attitude - and a switchblade in her purse.

I've never been to a church that did that (been through several denominations). Linking all my church time together (and that's a lot), if I hadn't read the Bible through and through, over and over, I would not have got the whole thing in a church.

Michelle Obama might be “a woman of valor” also, but her (and her husband's) public policies do not reflect an appreciation of the differences between men & women.

How is it possible, if you have been to a Roman Catholic church, or a Baptist, Methodist, Episcopal, Lutheran, Presbyterian or any other Protestant church? There is a reading from the Old Testament and from the New Testament at every Sunday service, as well as in any significant rite such as marriage. The old-time hymns are based in the scriptures. After the readings, the reader says, "The Word of the Lord," and the congregation replies, "Thanks be to God."

The churches have a calendar for their readings, which often are similar across denominations. Here is the schedule of readings for the Episcopal church, for instance. Click on the "BCP" or "RCL" links in the Sunday boxes to see the readings. You can find the calendars for other denominations online.

What a lovely custom! Thanks for adding clarity and insight.

Trust me, it's not something I heard around my Protestant table in my house, although my father did ritually thank my mother for preparing a good dinner every single evening.

I'd call her shapely, but not "busty." Check the photo in post 5.

For the whole, whole Bible? It just seems, looking back over a church-filled life (that includes everything from old time Free-Methodist tent meetings to Mass - I'm not fussy as long as Jesus is Lord there) that large amounts of Biblical back-story is missing. If I hadn't dug in there on my own, I never would have learned about Job's clueless friends, the campaigns to capture the Promised Land, the trials of the minor prophets and the freaky stuff in Revelation.

I'm probably way off thread-topic now - only reason I brought it up is because the question came up in Sunday School recently about how much of the Bible actually gets covered over a year's worth of Sundays. Turns out, not as much as we thought - all the more reason to be reading it ourselves!

Thanks for the links - the Baptists (where I am now) don't seem to use any kind of calendar. I like the concept myself.

Some churches are more thorough than others. I agree that reading it oneself and studying the scriptures in classes with other believers is the best way to go. In my original post I was addressing the ambiguity in one sentence of the original article, and Babwa provided a great explanation in post 9.

When I was in my teens we also had scheme where you could earn yourself first a New Testament and then a Bible and it was working through a work book copying down verses from each chapter of the bible.

It was called the Young Sowers League not sure if it is still going.

Non-Republican have no idea of the enthusiasm generated by Sarah Palin. It’s safe to say there’s been no Pubbie since Reagan who has generated this kind of enthusiasm. Those who believe that if McCain loses, Palin will disappear better think again. A Palin-Jindal team four years from now will be very, very formidable.
