Ron Paul Uncovers American Idolatry

Ron Paul apparently tweeted, "Chris Kyle's death seems to confirm that 'he who lives by the sword dies by the sword.' Treating PSTD at a firing range doesn't make sense."

So, unfortunately, again, I've got to suggest people are stupid.  Hello conservative Christians, this time it's you.

Look, if you can't take a comment like this, you are very likely an idolater.  A killer gets killed; if you actually read the words of the God you claim to follow, the words come to mind.  Now, one thing you have to understand about Ron Paul- he is a teacher.  He used his political career and his runs for president to teach.  He has been trying to put the truth out there, and here he is putting the truth out here again.

Why would the truth offend you?  You have been holding some part of the fraud that is America as truth.  You are sticking your little red, white, and blue idol up into the air.

The HHS mandate, which will force the Catholic Church and others to provide birth control against their will, has belatedly brought some Christians closer to reality.  Suddenly they question the advisability of government fiddling around in healthcare.  What is the analog in this situation?  Does it take employees of the U.S. government, people like Chris Kyle, standing on their lawn with guns drawn?

I can say, I don't think it is entirely the conservative Christian's fault.  He has been lied to.  He has been programmed.  The response is in large part a pavlovian one.  Manipulative people have built a strong association between nation and family, even though our nation seems hell bent on destroying our families.
