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?

What amazes me is just how many of those Christian conservatives who are women AND support these men.
