I am sure there are countless pieces that have been written that are far worse than this one. I haven’t had a cup of coffee this morning (it is still brewing) so maybe my judgement is a bit clouded but it is really a struggle to think of anything written by anyone that is as bad as this one.
Years ago I actually enjoyed Jonah Goldberg’s stuff every now and then. This, however, is an absolute low. At least now I can look forward to Goldberg’s stuff in the future because it just cannot get any worse than this piece.
Actually, I think this is the first good thing he has written in a long time. He is right in describing the social conservatives I know, who vote democrat, but claim to be Christians. He could not have marked them better. They vote democrat because they believe the lie that the democrats actually try to help people and the republicans are too stingy, will take all the “benefits they enjoy” away like a Scrooge. I rarely read this guy any more, but happened to read this one because of the title. If he gets one good article once in a while, then good for him. But I DO have to agree with him...he has hit the mark on the people that I know. I’ve tried to argue with these people, who call themselves a Christian, but who vote democrat, even though the democrats support abortion from day one through the end of and even after the birth of a live baby. That does not seem to phase them, they still consider themselves more compassionate voting democrat than republican. Alinsky sold his wares very well. There is no convincing them otherwise. I don’t think Jesus could sell them a better proposal, to be honest. Their minds are made up.
A non-Christian friend of mine, who I send a lot of articles to, recently said, “______, why am I agreeing with you on this? I was pleased that she was seeing things finally from a Christian perspective and realizing it was the Truth, and not ashamed to say it. We had some good emails during the election cycle. This Truth used to be commonly held by all Americans, regardless of political party. Alinsky saw to it, with the likes of Obama and many others (Frank Marshall Davis, etc.) that the left would NEVER entertain Truth as their standard again. So, those so-called Christians who vote democrat really have blood on their hands and have sold out their beliefs, if they truly held any, to their own gods of political power.
