Frank Gaffney Jr, in Canada Free Press, gives his assessment of why Governor Palin says America needs to return to God and why she has such a passionate desire to stand up for the nation. He also discusses liberals' inability to get it. Like anything else involving faith in America, his article is sure to make liberals' heads spin, but since when has that ever stopped me from speaking the truth?
What would one think of a born again, Spirit-filled believer who makes no apologies for her biblical faith?
That’s what yanks liberals totally out of their wormwood trees.
They don’t understand, first of all, what “born again Spirit-filled” means. They have such an individual rolling in the aisles and frothing at the mouth. That’s how ignorant the unbelieving are.
Of course, too many in America are of that caliber when it comes to biblical faith. Because they simply don’t get the Word of God, they are in frenzy when the word “Palin” is even whispered.
Martha Stewart is the latest mean example. She, a sophisticated, learned liberal—that is, learned in the secularist tradition—was asked what she thought of Sarah Palin. She replied, among other negative derides, that Palin was “boring.” When asked the question, one would have thought Stewart’s face had taken on the prune shape.
Stewart said she would not go to hear Palin even if she were paid. In other words, Stewart would not bother walking across the street to hear the former Alaskan governor.
That’s about it for liberals’ understanding of Palin. They loathe her, demeaning her at every slap.
Naturally, Palin knows that this is part of every biblical believer’s turf, not just hers. She and her husband have braced for that reaction ever since committing their lives to Christ.
Does not every Christ disciple know it is basic scriptural knowledge that Christ warned His followers they would be hated just as He was hated? Consequently, when Palin puts herself “out there,” she knows hatred is at the top of reactions.
Yet it is so sad that any American should have to tell reporters that the nation needs to return to God. That should not be news. That should be our cultural milieu. It should be our fundamental reason for being as a country. It should be an accepted given.
