They found God
So I was watching Hannity & Colmes last night. Well I wasn't exactly watching, it was just running in the background while I was doing other stuff. A little way in I noticed that Ann Coulter was on repping the right and Bob Beckel was giving the left perspective, Shaun and Alan were doing their thing.
I've heard Bob and Ann go at it before, so I kinda tuned it out. Then about halfway through, I heard Beckel say something along the lines of ". . . well, my faith says . . ." Wha Wha WHAT?!?!?!
Now I've listened to Beckel with interest through the election and heard him prop the adgenda of the left, but this was the first time I'd heard him mention faith. So I listened more.
Here's Beckel saying with every other breath, "my God. ." this and "my Faith" that. Then he busted into talking about the Bible and how it says this and that. I was floored. Never before had I heard this Mondale crony talk about religion or God in a positive way. In fact, leading up to the election he was deriding the christian conservatives and bashing every appeal to God and faith he could muster.
Well I guess this quantum shift in Democrat strategy stems from their belief that they don't have enough God in their party. I'd imagine that democrat strategists all over the country are now quietly reading their family bibles, trying to see what they can pull from it to further their cause. I shudder at the thought that the left is now pouring through scripture looking for catchpharases they can insert in their next campaigns, but I guess it was to be expected.
Personally, I'm an atheist. I don't believe in God, Religion, Heaven or Hell. I think we get one spin around this big blue marble and that's it. The one thing that always kept me looking left from time to time was their conviction that religion and God has no place in politics. I guess that's all coming to an end as they realize they need embrace God and religion to try and win back some votes. Even Hillary has been making more and more references to faith and God in her speeches.
So I did some looking around and, LO AND BEHOLD, I found this little tidbit about our latest and greatest Bible-Thumper.
