I hope you all had a wonderful holiday weekend.
I made a first post in the general section yesterday and would like to see what sort of opinions I can find here amongst those who perhaps have a more relogiously attuned perspective.
If this is your cup of tea, I would greatly appreciate your checking out the following excerpt and then, if you like, click on the accompanying link to continue reading and post your thoughts.
I greatly appreciate any thoughts or feedback that you might provide.
Thanks for your time and kind consideration! Here is the excerpt:
When I was a boy, I developed a keen interest in World War II history, particularly the European theater. The unparalleled scale and drama of that tumultuous time captivated me. I can remember as a fourth grader purposefully seeking out every book on the subject made available in the public and school libraries and absorbing them with an intensity that certainly would have served me well were I to have applied it to the areas of study that were actually assigned to me in those early days. This infatuation grew over time and blossomed into a deep, relentless sort of fascination that has held sway to this very day.
I often wondered what it must have been like to live in Germany in the 1930s during the ascent of the political savior Adolf Hitler. I pondered the dire economic situation, the crushed national pride, and the desperate longing for restoration to greatness that had permeated the nations psyche and paved the way for its enthusiastic embrace of a messiah. How wonderful must it have been to see ones cherished homeland redeemed and restored to prominence all through the iron will and masterful execution of one great man!
I did; as, evidently, did the mods.
It’s not dead yet.
Hey troll-hope you change your ways or hope you will like your stay in God’s “Lake of Fire”, btw you will be getting a lifetime membership, don’t worry Pelosi and your fake messiah will be there with you!
FR Mods: ZOTting at the speed of LIGHTNING! ;)
FireBreathing, here's some advice: If you want to post an opinion from your Blog, Feel free to do so, but be sure to place it in the "Bloggers & Personal" section or at least "General/Chat."
There are freepers out there who would love to read your opinion and take on things. The problem is there are also freepers out there who are just looking for a good time to "zot" members who haven't been "vetted" in their mind and eyes.
I hope this occurrence doesn't scare you away from the Free Republic. This really is one of the best places on the internet to interact with a Conservative think tank. But with any great movement that grows, there's always growing pains.
IBTZ! Do you smell ozone?
What? Do you agree with him? Do you really think that it would have been wonderful to live under Hitler as you said here....I read it. I thought it was good. I don't know why the 24/7 freepers are always so quick to jump on a new member posting so they can get their jollies off by posting pictures of cats all the time.
Do we have a twofer?
He was scum. And if you follow him so are you. He rests in hell. He's tasting the fire and the absence from God as I write. So will you. Be gone, Satan!
What happened to all the trolls that are "Smarter Than a Fifth Grader"?
A fifth grader educated in government schools.
National Socialism can happen here.....After 9/11 I believe anything can.

If you read the whole thing, you would know that it was all about worship in the cult of personality of a man as a leader. Worship of idols, and yes, even men as idols is great folly. That was the point of his post. It's all very clear if you just read it.
So yes. Yes I agree with him that worshiping leaders like that, including an Obama who promises hope and change is very dangerous and will lead to ruin.
