Candidate for The Enlightenment Party?

Our Christian friends sent us good wishes and prayers … and our Jewish friends sent good wishes and prayers … and our Muslim friends sent us good wishes and prayers. And, lo and behold, we received a lot of good wishes from some agnostics and atheists and we were delighted to get those as well! It confirms my conviction that freedom brings people together.

Thanks to Polites for posting this quote and pointing out the presence of the propositional nation myth. I agree with Elihu that it’s a load of manure.

Its quite backwards, which is the common problem of libertarians of various stripes. True freedom comes from Christ, and therefore can never, in any meaningful sense, unite Christians with non-Christians.

Yup. That’s why I was uncomfortable with Paul from the start. He elevates the constitution above the Bible and is not principled on those things that matter most, and has waffled on those things he argues about most.

Wish there was a choice this November. 🙂
