Skip to comments.Palin to Rightly Divide USA all the More
Posted on 11/19/2009 3:59:19 AM PST by freedomyes
Sarah Palin, if running for President, surely will divide this Republic all the more into two definite segments-fiercely opposing segments.
Already we have two primary segments: believers and secularists.
Believers are those moralists who hold to the God of the Bible, particularly the New Testament God in Christ. It may be via Roman Catholicism, evangelical Protestantism, Orthodox Christians, or non-church members who hold to biblical ethics.
Secularists are exampled by Joy Behar on The View. She is with conviction a non-believer who holds that this life is all there is. No deity. No hereafter. No judgment accountability. This is it; write your own (im)morals.

Right.. conservatives vs. rinos.. yep
Secularists? Nope. One can be secular and a believer.
The left is ATHEIST. They are godless and not just secular.
In this particular context, the author meant secularists to be secularist/atheist/agnostic/satanist. He did not mean it in the more generic understanding of being benign secular.
The context is looking at secular as a religion as in contrast believers are religious-based.
Thanks for your note.
We are already divided. Us against them. The idiot, wishy-washy independents that cant seem to make up their mind from day to day on what they stand for, might as well be considered leftists, as they are only a tail-wag away from being them anyway. In my opinion, there isnt gonna be a race war, or a religion war, or anything else for that matter. If this country ever does split in two, it will be because of those in the middle and on the left that are trying to destroy the very thing we hold dearest. Just my humble opinion.
Hey! I was agnostic for quite a while, and was still a solid conservative. Don’t lump being agnostic in with being atheist or satanic!
Most people’s definition of agnostic goes something like: “I’m just not sure what’s out there, don’t think anything can be proved for sure, and therefore I’ll sit out of the whole religion / God debate.”
There’s nothing in that viewpoint that restricts one from understanding right from wrong, or that the “Culture of Death” is profoundly awful.
true and thanks.
a.k.a. "bitter clingers."
Hmm, second time I see a religious posting from this
J. GRANT SWANK referencing Sarah Palin (Disclosure: Met her last night and found her charming). I wonder about the point of these postings he is making - yesterday it was she was pentecostal, today it is she is a moralist and both articles state she will divide the nation.
I am not criticizing the postings, just wondering what the motivation behind them is. Are we not to like her because she has a moral compass or is from a evangelical group?
Whats the point? I am so Conservative that almost everyone else is in another group and I am divided from them. Even quite a few fiscal conservatives and I differ on social conservatism. That doesn’t make me like them any less for office.

“Theres nothing in that viewpoint that restricts one from understanding right from wrong, or that the Culture of Death is profoundly awful.”
Ahh but you just described the “crux” of the matter. If one has no opinion or belief in a higher power then one has no basis by which one establishes a personal sense of right or wrong, good or evil.
Paul clarifies the matter this way...”If there be no Resurrection(Christianity’s established linch pin upholding all morality), then let us eat, drink, and be merry for tomorrow we die!”
No God, no need for morals and ethics, no need for civil society, no mortar to hold rational society together. Law of the jungle stuff...and in the end let’s just nuke it all!
The author is totally conservative, all in favor of Sarah Palin running for the top office. He in no way is deriding in his posts but all the more attempting to get out the call for other conservatives to back her up solidly. Thanks for your questions.
so true. thanks.
I don’t find this article very compelling. It takes a rather simplistic view of things.
At times the obvious is simplistic.
Looking at an issue via a simplistic view can be wise.
That’s a truth; but it’s a “dificult” truth; it’s a taxing and “tasking” truth as well. That probably doesn’t make any sense; you would have to have known my Grandmother to understand that I guess.
Further divisions - Sarah Palin Beautiful, Joy Jehar Ugly.
I just hope a qualified Presidential Candidate announces his intentions soon.
totally agreed. . .
Redefining the meaning of words. Secularist is not the meaning of atheist as you said. And who cares what that nasty thing misnamed Joy thinks about anything. She is gross.
