David Limbaugh: Sally Quinn on Sarah Palin -- Versus Reality
David Limbaugh writes:
It seems the mainstream media's favorite pastime is to ridicule Sarah Palin. Of all the screeds I've read, I don't think any are snarkier than The Washington Post's Sally Quinn's "On Faith" blog post "Sarah Palin's 'rogue' Christianity."
Do we need further proof of the secular orientation of our dominant media culture than the fact that Quinn, an avowed atheist, pens the Post's "On Faith" blog? That would be like featuring a column by Fidel Castro on free enterprise and individual liberties. . . .
Quinn -- convinced she has exposed Palin as confused, conflicted and acutely hypocritical -- volleys a series of rhetorical questions designed to reveal Palin's apparent inconsistency in believing that God is in complete control ("I don't believe in coincidences") and yet he allows or causes terrible things to happen to people.
Regarding the question how a good God can co-exist with evil in the world, readers may want to take a look at The Innocence of God, by Udo Middelmann. A former atheist whose family stood against the Nazis, Middelmann is president of the Francis A. Schaeffer Foundation.
