I was a monster at eight.

I see a lot of Christians justifying their faith and knowledge in Jesus by saying that they aren't who they used to be. Now they're a much better person, and the evidence of being this new person is a way that they know Jesus is real.

These are the same Christians who say they were saved at a young age, anywhere between the ages of five through eight.

So exactly how horrible were they as such young children, if a better personality is now proof of Jesus?

Seek the Light ...

After Rush Limbaugh's dazzling attack on women who would like their insurance companies to pay for birth control, and the passing of Andrew Breitbart who's lies took down Shirley Sherrod, I've been ruminating over those who flocked to both men.

Rush Limbaugh is vile. There's no other word for it. And those who defended his words, accepted his "apology" or even cheered him on in the beginning ... come across as attracted to the vileness and darkness that man exudes.

Andrew Brietbart -- his attack on Shirley Sherrod distorted the truth, and none of his defenders saw through that. They thought he was telling the truth.

And then I can't help think about how many conservative Christians support both men, flock to both men, praise both men ... and I can't help think about how conservative Christians also say that their religion is the only way that holds morality, that their religion follows the man who is the way, the truth, and the life ... how often they are told to reject darkness in favor of the light ...

Anyone else seeing the disconnect here?
