Shame on you, Mr Thomas! You write: "The president had a right to expect a different message about another Kingdom." No, he (AND WE!) did not! Your ignorant theology is that of a platonic dualism sadly common among Christians throughout the centuries. Did Jesus not teach us to pray, "Thy kingdom come, thy will be done, ON EARTH as it is in heaven?!" The physical and the spiritual, while distinct, are inseparable. Mr Carson, in addition to being a brilliant physician, is well aware of this and should be COMMENDED, NOT CONDEMNED, for his courage in calling attention to the evil of leftist policies, which create very real misery that impacts the whole person, material AND immaterial! With all due respect, you should stick to politics!!
