I’d like to begin, from time to time, to respond to various ideas that I think are prime examples of sloppy thinking. And what better time than an election season to start off with a politically-minded bumper sticker.
A silly, inflammatory idea. (“Inflammatory”, get it?)
First of all, the last time we mixed religion with politics was, at least, as recently as the last election.
Second, history indicates that it is far more dangerous and deadly when religion is not mixed with politics. The last century was the bloodiest in the history of mankind and as sociologist Os Guinness po9ints out in his book, Unspeakable, “more people in the twentieth century were killed by secularists regimes, led by secularists intellectuals and in the name of secularists ideologies , than in all the religious persecutions in Western history.”
If you run across any other examples of what strikes you as sloppy thinking that you’d like for me to post and respond to, just let me know in the comments below.
