Skip to comments.How to put Democratic leaders on the defensive just like Chris Matthews 'got' Cong. Pence yesterday

Chris Matthews used a gotcha question about evolution to ambush a GOPer off his game yesterday, and gloated about it today. Now here's a way conservative reporters can get prominent Dem. leaders and other liberals to cross a line, hem and haw, or look stupid: "Sir or Madam, are you an ape? Are you a great ape? Answer this question directly, yes or no."
What’s a “non-literalist Christian”?
“Im sure Mr. Matthews will have a scathing retort for you just as soon as he thinks of something clever.”
It might make things simpler if you would define what it is youre willing to accept as evidence.
All I have to offer is everything you have seen and thought about in your life.
Is that sufficient?
Or what weight one is willing to give to “evidence” in general.
Have you read the book ‘Next’ by Michael Crichton by any chance?
I have not. It looks interesting, though. I am somewhat independently familiar with some of the contents.
Was there something in it that you wanted to discuss?
Thank you for the courtesy of correcting my careless typo.
I generally allow people to self identify. Many people who believe in Christ as Savior also do not require the Bible to be read literally in sections like Genesis. Some here would challenge their professed Christianity.
Crichton correctly identifies the joke that is peer review, and studies funded by drug companies that (surprise,surprise) come to the conclusion 90% of the time they determine that their own drug is best.
(I must confess I’m surprised it’s not closer to 100%, although perhaps it really is, since even these polls can’t be trusted!)
Personally, I think that’s sufficient, believing and accepting Christ as savior, but as they grow, they come to understand Jesus meant what He said 100% of the time, about every subject.
I’ve met cafeteria Catholics, Protestants all across the spectrum, some worse than others, but it’s not my place to judge them. But I would say it’s a Christian duty to warn them.
One doesn’t get to pick and choose, it doesn’t work that way.
