Howard Dean's View of Teaching Morals

Howard Dean, the blustery chair of the Democratic National Party is the best thing to happen to conservative causes since Ted Kennedy. Whenever they open their mouths, you can count on the antithesis of common sense, decency, and moral principle to come forth. Dean so excels at putting his foot in his mouth that he should write a cookbook on suggestions for serving leather. The Democratic Chair is so over the top that fellow liberal, legislative reprobate Barney Frank even castigated Dean recently for his remarks concerning Tom Delay. Now that’s eye-opening!

One of Dean’s latest verbal antics had him asserting that Republicans have no business lecturing anyone on moral issues since they have their own issues of moral lapse which, in Dean’s warped little mind, I underscore little, means that they have no right to even speak of moral issues. Now let’s do something liberals rarely do; let’s follow the reasoning.

According to Dean’s guiding principle, if a police officer has himself ever broken the speed limit, he is disqualified from stopping you for the same. (Try that one out the next time you’re pulled over) If you have ever run a red light, that disqualifies you from touting the virtues of stopping at red lights. And if anyone has ever told a lie, that means talking about lying being wrong is utterly out of bounds. I think you get my point.

To be sure, having the moral high ground by way of example is certainly a superior position for which to strive but living imperfectly does not change the benefit or the rightness of living properly.

Lord knows that if Dean is right, I, and every other preacher in America, would never be able to open our mouths concerning God’s moral principles for life. But the fact that I cannot-or do not--live up to all of them does not change their rightness or virtue.

So, once again, Howard Dean demonstrates just how bankrupt the soul, motivated and guided by an unenlightened view of life, truly is.

Not a week goes by that I am not in my pulpit explaining God’s word to hundreds of people, not as one who has arrived at moral purity but as a fellow struggler, saved, thankfully, by God’s grace and mercy. Dr. Dean needs a touch from the Great Physician; only then will he see clearly.

Dear Sir, if I may ask, how do you know you're saved? It seems to me quite pretentious to claim to know something you really don't know. Good has never look good on pride and arrogance.

The answer Sir is quite simple, "These things have I written unto you who believe in the name of the Son of God that you may KNOW that you have eternal life." 1 John 5:13
