Two Against One
October 14, 2012
Soon after our current leader’s same-sex marriage beliefs were announced, this blog became very political in nature. Previously, the blog concerned itself mainly with spiritual, Scriptural and theological issues. But after serious consideration, I apologized to my readers and told them that I would return to the blog’s original intent, Biblical-based themes. But since the disgraceful display of the Vice-President of the United States at this week’s debate, I will be writing political posts until the election is over (hopefully, with a new leader for this country). And the main reason for this shift in focus (besides Biden’s awful behavior), is that the moderator, Martha Raddatz, was so unfair in how she conducted herself. It was two against one.
Yes, Joe Biden was not, on Thursday evening, what we would hope our children would grow up to be. He was condescending, rude, disrespectful and even hateful to his counterpart, Congressman Paul Ryan. Also, some have estimated that Joe interrupted Paul Ryan around 80-plus times during the hour-and-a-half debate. But what is more disturbing, is that the moderator, Martha Raddatz, interrupted the Congressman close to ten times. This is an outrage. This supposed impartial media personality was anything but impartial.
Here’s the good news: the American people saw right through this deplorable behavior by Martha and Joe. And I believe that they will respond at the ballot-box. The American people know when a fight is not fair and when one side is not being treated right, and this was the case on Thursday night.
There is so much at stake in this election. It is, indeed, the most important election of our lifetimes. Our country may not recover if the current administration is put back into power. My prayer is this: “Lord, give us a godly leader who will lead us back to you.”
