For me, it is nice to read someone else echo what you believe, and say or write it better than I can, so here it is, again, read it and weep:
“In the end, though, it’s still hard to deny that hypocrisy is just as rampant (or nearly as rampant) on the right as it is on the left, and we do well to take the beam out of our own eyes – to cite Jesus’ words in Matthew 7:1-5 – so that we can help take the speck (or, beam) out of our neighbor’s eyes.
God hates unjust measures and unequal balances, but He loves fairness and equity and truth (read Proverbs for many examples). So, let’s do our best to be consistent in the stands that we take and in the standards that we use.
That way, we can focus on our ideological differences rather than caught up in superficial, politically based emotional reactions.
That way, we can focus on the truth, and there is no effective weapon that can stand against the truth.”
But, you know where I go when people are asked to handle the truth…
