the full power

sub-title: The Revenge of the Sith just keeps getting worse.
If there’s anything that I do not like, it’s taking the responsibility of going into a subject that’s anything beyond general. However, sometimes that just won’t do. I am going to do the thing I have been dreading: I am going to tell you what I think of our Republican VP candidate, and her obviously brilliant boss.
Why on earth would I refer to John McCain as brilliant? His choice of a running mate. Now I am sure that he didn’t do it alone; he had help from several of his republican buddies. But it was still brilliant. Tactful, might be a better word; or shrewd. For one reason, his new running mate Sarah Palin appeals to feminists and Hilary voters. They think it the most delightful thing in the world to have an underdog female candidate, with absolutely no experience anywhere but in Alaska. And not for very long there. She is in her forties; they like that she is still young. She has a stay at home husband, whilst she pursues a political career as a mayor, a governor, and now, a Vice President; they are delighted that she is so independent, and in such consistence with the deep-rooted sins that God told Adam and Eve were going to be a problem amongst females. She is a member of Feminists for Life (I’ll get to the for life part in a minute); she’s willing to allow abortions to save the life of a mother; she called herself a pit-bull (indirectly) on national television. I am sure the feminists are pleased that they have a chance to have a female president; which leads to the negative of McCain’s choice: Sir, when and if you become president, you might want to watch your back.

On the other hand, McCain also noosed the evangelical Christian vote. Palin is a good deal more pro life than her superior (Senator Johnny) has shown himself to be. After all, she is a member of Feminists for Life (the key words here are for and life. Feminist? We know no feminist.) She is the mother of, like five homeschooled kids. Taught by their wonderful daddy. She chose not to have her child aborted even though it was going to mental problems. Of course, abortion shouldn’t be an option, but since it is, she’s not going to do it. She has handled this campaign like a family woman. Or rather the way a family man would. What’s not to like? At this rate, they’re already going to get the votes of every evangelical Christian who breathes American air, and then some. And then a lot. What red flags do you see?

Well, first in foremost, she’s a woman. Hey, wait a minute. Several people told me that they would want to leave the country if Hilary won, because she was a woman. What makes Mrs Palin different? Is it her opinions? Or her ticket? What is selling us over to her? What about the fact that she is not one hundred percent pro-life? She has that little clause that every GOP candidate has, that says, “Except to save the life of a mother.” Yeah, we’ve seen that played out in the field. And finally, though I could go on for paragraphs, no matter how good her political standards may be, it doesn’t matter because she’s not running for president. McCain is. And I hope I don’t have to expound on his problems.

The really depressing part is that even though I don’t like Palin personally, the church could’ve done a lot worse if they wanted. That’s what should get us. Christ’s bride should be either leading the charge in our culture, or against it; hanging from a string is not an option.

I probably killed some of you with that post. As a compensation, I’ll post one of my favourite songs from the new Steven Curtis Chapman album, This Moment.We come together, with a holy purpose,

We come together, for the highest cause,

We speak one language, with a heart of worship,

Gathered to bring the song to the world,

For your glory,

With one voice, we will sing,
Every tribe and every tongue
Brings a harmony

With one voice we will bring,

Heaven’s beautiful melody down to this earth,

As we sing to our King,

With one Voice.

Oceans divide us,

But we sing together,

Now what defines us, I sour love for of you

From every nation, and across all borders

Gathered to bring a song to the world,

For your Glory,

(chorus)So come on, come on and join the song,

Our God, our God is on the throne,

Come on come on and join the song,

Hallelujah, hallelujah

Hallelujah, our God reigns,
Let us all rejoice

Sing hallelujah,

Sing his praise,

Let us all rejoice

With one Voice,
Steven Curtis Chapman and Matt Redman.
Note: tell me what you think of Governor Palin. I’d love to argue with you. (just kidding. I try to keep this blog as argue proof as possible.) oh yeah, and I didn’t explain the Revenge of the Sith part. Some of ya’ll will get it.

    “We love the old saints, missionaries, martyrs, and reformers. Our Luthers, Bunyans, Wesleys and Asburys, etc... We will write their biographies, reverence their memories, frame their epitaphs, and build their monuments. We will do anything except imitate them. We cherish the last drop of their blood, but watch carefully over the first drop of our own.”
