My personal musings about anything that gets on my radar screen--heavily dominated by politics.


Broadly Applicable

I can't help but think this quote is highly, highly relevant to just about all of the descussions lately:

There are two equal and opposite errors into which our race can fall about the devils. One is to disbelieve in their existence. The other is to believe, and to feel an excessive and unhealthy interest in them. --C.S.Lewis, "The Screwtape Letters"

From John Kerry: "Terrorism is primarily an intelligence and law enforcement issue"
Gay marriage:"Gays should be afforded the same protections in marriage as straights"
The Passion:"This depiction of Christ's last hours is obsessively violent and virulently anti-Semitic"

What do these quotes have in common? A basic, and fundamental, misunderstanding of the nature of evil, and an ongoing effort to water down the truths of the ages. Quite in line with Lewis' first error.
