And the Gods of the Copybook Headings limped up to explain it once more.

Wrong On Public Opinion? Yup – that’s what it’s all about, you see.

leave a comment » – Views – Religious Right Wrong on Public Opinion:

“In both cases, leaders of the religious right are out of step with the views of many people of faith in this country.”

I think of the book title by Hugh Hewitt “In But Not Of” when I see articles like this because being “people of faith” and being “faithful” are two vastly different things in my own book. People of faith believe in some higher being who may have possibly created all, or at least part of the universe. People of faith have blown up school children and bombed abortion clinics. What the world despises about the religious right is their faithfulness and their persistence. They despise the fact that the Bible is still the number one world best-seller ….ever. Tomes such as the Da Vinci Code will flash briefly in the public pan and then become dustworthy as soon as the next catchy theory arises, but the Word of God will stay steady and unchanging. The greatest have tried to change..even erase it, but it stands in spite of them all.

So – out of step with the views of many people of faith? Absolutely. Staying true to the Word is and always will be about being out of step with the norm. The Bible has much to say about how the faithful will be out of step with the views of many. As for me and my house – we will stay out of step.
