So I really intended to write about politics today. Then I read a friends blog. Someone who commented on his entry made a comment that I have heard all my life. For the sake of argument, I will boil down the sentiment being expressed: God is a Republican.
I think I have been fairly honest about my struggles of faith. For many, this is probably seen as a sign of weakness. Frankly it is. If I had any backbone, I probably would have tossed out faith long ago. But nothing makes me want to abandon faith more that hearing people tie God to a political philosophy.
Sadly, I want to re-embrace faith. But to me, many people of faith come across as hateful. If faith means embracing all the baggage that comes with it…I will take hell.
