This post has stuff about politics and religion. My perspective has changed
I hate to hear people criticize the President. It’s not that I’m a fan-boy, it’s just that it’s wrong. I know it’s a free country but what gives anyone the right to publicly denounce this or any other President? I don’t intend for this to sound like a rant, but consider the following:
- God puts our authorities in place. Not man. Who are we to criticize God’s choice of leaders?
- Just because we can doesn’t mean we should. I don’t think that our foundational right of freedom gives us the right to judge or criticize others.
- It makes us look bad to other countries. The negative tends to outweigh the positive. So what are we communicating to other countries when we start calling our President an idiot?
- The current population of the US is 301,139,947 people. The President has the ability to effect all of us. What would your response be if even a single individual attacked you?
Do you agree? Do you think I’m wrong? Leave a comment and tell me what you think.
UPDATE : I should point out that this post was intended to spark discussion, it is not my actual view. I think it has served its purpose well enough. Thanks to everyone who engaged in the discussion!
