We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Edwards channels Jesus, and concludes that Jesus would be "appalled" by American selfishness and American's ignoring the plight of those around them.
I hear this as an insult - by a filthy-rich ("filthy" not because of his assets, but because of how he obtained them) ambulance-chasing lawyer who has just built an ostentatious and self-indulgent monument to himself - to the Americans, who are the most generous, most charitable people on earth by a long shot.
Furthermore, one thing Christians do not do is to take eachother's inventory by making judgements about the condition of eachother's faith. Christians worry more about the beam in their own eye. If I want your opinion of me, I'll ask for it.
I love it when a shyster who has obviously never cracked open a bible, lectures me on my faith. It reminds me of medieval nobles who used religion as a lever of power without actually practicing Christianity themselves.
