Dan Popp, writing at Alan Keyes’ Renew America site, is tired of hearing all the political reasons why the Republicans won’t impeach President Obama. He’s mad as hell and he’s not gonna take it anymore and he just has one question: What about God?
What about God?
What if Moses had thought better of defying his Obama, knowing that the consequence might be a more severe slavery for his brethren, rather than freedom? What if David had come to a reasonable conclusion about his prospects of victory over the nine-foot-tall Obama before him? – or Daniel, or Gideon, or Elijah, or the Apostles? What if the early Christian martyrs had looked at their approval ratings?
If these examples seem too remote, how about George Washington with his frostbitten few facing the greatest military in the world? Or those Christians who dared to try to eradicate chattel slavery, a tragedy that must have seemed like a permanent part of the human condition? How about Martin Luther King, Jr.’s renewal of their struggle? What of the young man in front of the tank in Tiananmen Square?
What if any of these had balked at the insurmountable “political realities” before them?
Sad to say, these days most of the politics of the left and the right seem to operate on the assumption that there is no God. “In Polls We Trust.” If we believe there is a God, we’ll move toward the right with the assurance that He will either help us gain a miraculous victory, or use our defeat for a greater good…If there is a God, then what is right should trump any other consideration. He is the One who determines the rise and fall of nations, after all. If God exists, and if it appears that the President – any President – has misused his authority, then we must do what is right and impeach him.
Great. Now if you’ll just name me a president who didn’t misuse his authority in some way, we’ll be all set. I’ll wait….
You got nothing, do ya? That’s what I thought. My favorite part:
We need a boatload of Esthers today. If I perish, I perish, but this has to be stopped.
There is nothing funnier to me than watching these people declare their own unbreakable courage in the face of no threat whatsoever.
