I don’t mind when the vigilant call out morons who say stupid personal garbage about Sarah Palin. In fact, I applaud such efforts.
Now, can we return the favor?
Let’s start calling out our own who say stupid personal things about Barack Obama.
Or Nancy Pelosi.
Or Harry Reid.
The list goes on.
See, I’m just crazy enough to believe that being a faithful witness for Christ is more important than political affiliation.
I also believe in the almighty power of an Almighty God.
If we live our faith, as Paul said being wise in the way we act toward outsiders, making the most of every opportunity and letting our conversations be always full of grace, seasoned with salt (I.e. knowledge and substance) so that we may know how to answer everyone, who knows what opportunities may arise?
We might have the chance to be a witness to those who occupy positions of political power.
Starting with a smile stemming from confidence in Christ, and the open hand extended even as His nail-scarred hand is extended to all.
I know I’ve written on this theme several times before, and no doubt will again.
But it’s worth repeating.
Let’s be the better.
Starting with disciplining those who behave shamefully on either side of the aisle.
