Jon Stewart went BUCK on Pat Buchanan yesterday, defending the Bible, of all things, against misuse.
Stewart's main point is a good one: In times of tragic catastrophe, no one gets to play all-knowing editorialist commentator. Enough said. Now, onto my editorial commentary about all the editorial commentary.
In the paradigm of traditional conservatism, Robertson is a highly exalted prince. In this same economy, Stewart, an unabashed liberal, would be viewed as a rather lowly fool. I like that a foolish man such as Mr. Stewart was used to shame the proud while unabashedly proclaiming the compassion of God to his largely unbelieving audience. If bashing Christians is what it takes to elevate God and his Word, then this was a huge win for the Kingdom. Soli Deo Gloria
Ezekiel 21:26 - This is what the Sovereign LORD says: Take off the turban, remove the crown. It will not be as it was: The lowly will be exalted and the exalted will be brought low.
1 Cor 1:27-29 - But God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong.He chose the lowly things of this world and the despised things—and the things that are not—to nullify the things that are, so that no one may boast before him.
