The left have political power mainly because of their nastiness and willingness to get in peoples faces.
Bill has some thoughts on that.
I agree with Bill’s message, but in my view the Christian right has a tendency to overreach. This happened under both the Reagan and Bush 43 administrations in my memory. People don’t like being lectured to nor do they want to have scripture quoted incessantly. I think it kills the message.
From my perspective, the return of the “10 Commandments” and the “Golden Rule” need front and center attention. Both teach societies on proper societal behavior. People that are inclined to embrace God will do so on their own. They don’t need to be hit in the head with a bible.
Unfortunately, the Christian Right usually gets into an hysteria and ultimately the argument gets into who owns the franchise on God, then the whole conversation gets lost in the weeds and the original intent is wasted.
We will have a new president in 6 weeks. Trump is not a bible thumper but he is a Christian. We Christians need to politely and resolutely demand a return of the 10 Commandments and the Golden Rule to our schools. Common decency needs to be part of our national conversation.
