Ah, the perfecting of our union. Gotta love it.
And what a vote (by way of example I mean) for democracy around the world. Our nation lost its way for some time. But this shows that when we hold to the ideals of democracy, as opposed to the parties that exist within it, we can and do learn from our mistakes. Even to the point that we can largely reinvent ourselves as need arises.
America is admirable again in the eyes of the world. And not because we’re perfect – far from it. But because when we screw up we have the capacity for reform.

Ending Christian Euphemisms: "Fundamentalist"
I've taken some heat in the comment section for using yesterday's post on "unbiblical" and a "higher view of scripture" as a thin foil for my own disregard of biblical standards. To the contrary, I was pointing to the use of the word unbiblical as a stand-in for a particularly thin hermeneutic. Ther
