Last week, along with a couple of hundred others, I sang a song in a worship service, something about "we walk by faith and not by sight." I know the line is scriptural, and therefore struck by the very hand of the Holy Spirit; but I don't mind saying that I just about choked on the words because sometimes good Christian people do--walk by faith and not by sight, which is to say, blindly. Sometimes--am I some kind of heretic?--we must use our vision too, for Christ's sake.
Case in point: I don't have the slightest idea how to understand the strange phenomenon represented in the photo above. Is it paranoia? People who believe Obama is a Muslim are my neighbors, good devout Christian people. Are they so constitutionally convinced that this man, the elected President of the United States, is a conspiratorial liar? Do they believe he is somehow plotting the establishment of a Muslim state here in America? In Sioux Center? In Sioux County?
Honestly, I'm just dumbfounded.
Watch the story here, please, it's all about good Christian people. Help me understand. These people are my brothers and sisters in Christ, or aren't they?
