A few mysteries which need unraveling.

This particular post will entail group participation.

Since it is so painfully obvious that I am not the sharpest knife on the tree or brightest bulb in the drawer, I need assistance in deciphering some of the greater mysteries that exist today.

To wit:

-There has been incredible outrage over a recently intoxicated Mel Gibson spewing both foul language and anti-Semitic remarks. However, when Hezbollah or Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad threaten to wipe Israel “off the map”, we need to approach them through diplomatic means.

-Dr. Gregory Boyd, pastor of Woodland Hills Church in St Paul, is lauded by the New York Times for “disowning conservative politics”. However, no dismay was expressed when liberal politics were brought into a Baptist church via John Kerry in October 2004.

-From Mitch Berg at “Shot in the Dark”:

Why is it that when Republicans act to make Republicans act like...Republicans, by shunning candidates that favor higher taxes, bigger government, porous borders, speech rationing and victim disarmament, we're "imposing purity tests", which is a "bad thing" that "chills dissent from the neocon/fundie/Rovian agenda"...

...but when the Kossacks launch a bit to politically lynch Joe Lieberman for being a relative moderate, it's a good thing?

-The Star Tribune recently had a story of a St Paul man killing 10 puppies by snapping their necks. One of the man’s neighbors went into her home to grab two kitchen knives to try and stop him. "I was going out for him," the woman said. "I'm an animal lover."

But if anybody dares protest an unborn child being brutalized? Such protests are the American left’s definition of terrorism.

Well, there you have it. Some of the latest news can make for intriguing questions.

Personally, I’m at a loss.

Anyone else want to give these a whirl?
