I have never based my public and political views on any claim to "speak for God." August 15, 2004Yet today:
And I think it behooves someone of the Christian faith to ask themselves would Jesus allow himself to be represented in that action? As a matter of fact, we know he wouldn't.Of course, we knew that's what he thought all along. At least he's being honest--he really does he think he speaks for God. Is it possible for a person to be more arrogant? And, seriously, is Keyes talking about Jesus from the Bible? Because here's what I read that Jesus said:
Blessed are the gentle, for they shall inherit the earth. Blessed are the merciful, for they shall receive mercy. Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God. You shall love your neighbor as yourself. Beware of practicing your righteousness before men to be noticed by them; otherwise you have no reward with Father who is in heaven. Do not judge lest you be judged. For in the way you judge, you will be judged: and by your standard of measure, it will be measured of you.An update: One more Bible verse in light of the comments about Mary Cheney being a selfish hedonist. "Let he who is without sin cast the first stone." Update 2: I neglected the option of calling Keyes a liar about the whole "born alive" act stuff. But the Archpundit does that well.
