McGrath of Harlow BS: How can we restore a reason renaissance (324* d) RE: BS: How can we restore a reason renaissance 19 Dec 20


"It has always been my belief that 'most' Trumpites support him for what he does...or claims to be doing... and not for himself."

That has been my general assumption - the alternative, that half the population of the USA needed to be exorcised, was too depressing, and intrinsically improbable. But polls that indicate something like 80% of his voters believing his crazy claims about a massive voting fraud conspiracy, has threatened that optimistic assumption.

I'm hoping that after January 20 things might quieten down, and there'll be a return to sanity. There's a hymn, taken from a poem by the Quaker poet Whittier that expresses what I'd hope:

"Dear Lord and Father of mankind,
Forgive our foolish ways!
Reclothe us in our rightful mind,
In purer lives Thy service find,
In deeper reverence, praise."

Perhaps they might try singing that in those evangelical churches, and reflecting on the words.
