They are about as nice as you can get. There is just this lost connection somewhere with their ethics and their sense. They see morality in Rush that we don't see. I have given up on arguing. They think blacks have too many babies. They want the mexicans all rounded up and sent back. They want prayer and bible reading in schools. They want welfare banned. They are still as nice as rain on a puppies nose. I don't get it.
Sadly, these are exactly the people who don't see their own hypocrisy in worshipping Christ and yet standing resolutely against everything Christ would have wanted.
They stand in finger-pointing judgment of non-Christians, and yet fail in this very fundamental aspect of "Following Christ's Teaching".
It's an extraordinary tragedy.
What, you guys know my family back in Georgia? In all seriousness it breaks my heart sometimes. I've given up trying to argue with them. Someone once said, in normal circumstances good people do good things and bad people do bad things, but if you want good people to do bad things, it takes religion.
