An old man at my church asked a question in passing last weekend and I have been thinking about it ever since. This old guy is a former school teacher and coach. He is one of those guys who is universally loved by all in our community. Just one heck of a guy. But the question that he asked will certainly arouse some peoples hostilities, maybe even start some name calling.
After reflecting on the thing, I have decided that his question is a definite statment on where we are as a nation, and possibly a telling example of what we have done to our men and boys. An old man, asking what he feels is an innocous question, that would turn some folks, if asked in the right circles, into foaming at the mouth lunatics.
I submit for you the question: How can a man be a liberal?
See. Simple and to the point, but with a lot of meaning.
