Yesterday I wrote about McCain’s stepping back from fear-mongering (where he should have never gone in the first place). Let’s be clear, though, there’s quite a number of Obama supporters who are equally as vile. A friend of mine told me about the protest people were planning at the Republican fund-raiser in Philly yesterday. It made me as excited as I am when I have a dentist appointment. The crowd went over the top, and here’s the winner for worste statement of the day:
Outside Broad Street, waiting for Palin to leave, one man was heard saying, “Let’s stone her, old school.”
Brilliantly done, protesters. Way to be a force for hope.
When Jesus calls his followers to work from the fringes, it’s not so we can toss verbal hand-grenades from cover. I hope my brothers and sisters in Christ figure this out before too long, with the country sliding into recession we don’t need volatile activists, we need humble servants.
