Rudy has a good commentary on Niki Haley’s reaction to that stab in the back News York Times OpEd. This is the Op-ed written by someone who is supposedly a Trump administration insider.
Doug’s comments, which follow immediately after Rudy’s post, make that post even more interesting. We wonder. Why would anyone defend that stab-in-the-back New York Times Op-ed?
When we sin, we have three options.
1. We can repent. We can admit our guilt. That requires humility and faith in God.
2. We can defend our behavior. The more shamelessly we can do this the more believable we will be. This option requires faith in Man, especially our self.
3. We can pretend sin, treachery in this case, does not matter. When we say “everyone does it”, our defense is that it does not matter because everyone does it. Here we count upon the “fact” that no one will hold us accountable.
Democrats are defending their behavior. That is because destroying Trump and crushing his agenda matters so very much to them. Therefore, they have lied and deceived shamelessly. The writer of that New York Times Op-ed serves as just one small example.
As a nation we should be highly concerned. When supposedly respected and responsible newspapers enthusiastically provide a platform for shameless liars, that’s a sign that we too have become shameless.
