A Pastor’s Fiery Response to Mitt Romney’s “America is in Denial” by Shane Idleman
A recent article by Mitt Romney titled America is in Denial caught my eye when a news group boldly proclaimed, “Romney Warns Nation at Risk.”
Romney opened with: “Even as we watch the reservoirs and lakes of the West go dry, we keep watering our lawns, soaking our golf courses, and growing water-thirsty crops. As inflation mounts and the national debt balloons, progressive politicians vote for ever more spending.”
He continued, “The left thinks the right is at fault for ignoring climate change and the attacks on our political system. The right thinks the left is the problem for ignoring illegal immigration and the national debt. But wishful thinking happens across the political spectrum. More and more, we are a nation in denial.”
I’m Still Confused
I wholeheartedly agree that we are a nation in denial, but the conclusions that Mitt Romney draws concern me. He goes on to bash Trump while completely glossing over the election shenanigans. He then adds that “President Joe Biden is a genuinely good man.” Confused? So was I.
To be clear: As a Christian pastor, I genuinely love our leaders on both sides of the political spectrum. I try to season my words with grace and respect their position, and I pray for them often. But to call Biden good and Trump basically the scorn of the earth, is a quantum leap. (What is a good person? Watch my answer here on Fox News).
Clouded Conclusions—Mitt Missed It
Granted, I wish humility and gentleness were marks of the Trump presidency and the characteristic of most Republicans, but that wasn’t the case. Deep repentance must take place on both sides of the political aisle.
Although I appreciate Mitt’s heart (I truly believe that he cares for America), his conclusions, like many others, are clouded by their hatred for MAGA. To blame this group for America’s chaotic downward spiral while totally ignoring the slaughtering of millions of children over the decades and the illicit sexual perversion that pulsates in our veins, is the height of arrogance.
