"We have now sunk to a depth at which re-statement of the obvious is the first duty of intelligent men." Orwell
"Men are so simple of mind and so dominated by immediate needs that the deceitful man can easily find those ready to be deceived."
MachiavelliThe fact that a believer is happier than a skeptic is no more to the point than the fact that a drunken man is happier than a sober one... credulity is a cheap and dangerous quality.
Yes, Rev. Lowry is inspiring at 87... and let us go forward from this day to support the new president and work to bring renewed hope to the United States. I did not vote for him, but I am on board. Everyone has an oar. We all need to row. There is no room for destructive viewpoints in this lifeboat any longer. We are all in this together...economy, terror, drug culture, Islam's nuclear threat, inner city turmoil, vanishing jobs, perishing schools, marital values and basic civility. As Lincoln said, "This nation is the last great hope." And it will take all of us...no negatives. We are a Band of Brothers and Sisters...as we used to sing in 'Nam, "We'll all go down together"...but we do not have to.
Sing it, Brother John.
Cool dude indeed.
Lowry is the man! His speech was better than Obama's....Yes, we do need to pray for the success of Obama's presidency....As the campaign progressed I changed my perceptions of Obama. I actually voted for him!! Change actually has already occured, otherwise he would not have been elected.
I'd start going to church just to hear this guy again. Too bad he couldn't have spoken instead of Rick Warren. BTW did anybody else think Warren sounded like John Candy?
I live in Atlanta, and he told a local reporter his only regret about the inauguration was that with such a big crowd he didn't have an opportunity to pass the collection plate. I love a pastor who doesn't take himself too seriously.
