You know I’m almost happy that my readership stays at its low number. I’ve been perusing other blogs and finding that there are a lot of wackos out there commenting on things and just speaking out of their a$$. I don’t know if I would ever trade traffic for headache. Now I’m not afraid of people with different opinions, but what I find is that arguing with most lefties is like Simon Cowell trying to tell some of the weirdoes on American Idol that they have no talent. Nobody ever listens. Their beliefs are what is being challenged to them, not their ideas.
I’ve realized long ago that beliefs are too strong to be fought with logic. Beliefs are meant to defy logic; it’s called faith. What I don’t understand is that these people that firmly believe the crazy conspiracies and have faith in things like socialism, communism, and tolerance, find it stupid to have faith in God. Of all the things they believe in that have been disproved over and over, they feel that God, which will never be disproved, is an idiotic thing to believe in.
I think that the whole Pledge of Allegiance thing might have set this off for me. The people of infinite tolerance can’t seem to get over that God is a nondescript word that only has meaning for people that know who it is. I believe that Bob Dylan said, “Everybody serves somebody.” I think within that context all denominations and even people of no faith in a higher being can agree upon. So who is God for an atheist? Chance, evolution, themselves, money, whatever it is that makes them do, or want to do good is their god. I’ve recited the Pledge enough times to know that I’ve never said "One nation under the Judea/Christian God." So what is it hurting really? What God or religion is the Pledge of Allegiance pointing to? Most people would say that because the founding fathers were Christian than it’s obviously pointing toward a Judea/Christian God. I say to them, then why isn’t the word Christ all over the constitution and other historical documents that helped shape this country? Anyway, I doubt this post was worth reading but just some things I thought about when I heard the decision about the Pledge of Allegiance. I’m just glad I don’t get a lot of crazy lefty, communist, conspiracy theory comments.
