(Driven By Hate)
By Pete Ketcham
In years past (up until the 1960’s) the nation’s people with differing political viewpoints could be persuaded to change their minds and attitudes when presented with correct, logical, and reasoned information. Today in the political and social arenas it is impossible to persuade the godless politicians and their supporters to change their minds regardless of what credible and reasoned information they are presented with. They will stay with their convictions regardless of the reality that their illogical agenda is going to bring about devastating consequences.
A current example of this inability to change someone’s mind with facts is the tremendous anti-Israel resentment sweeping the nation and the rest of the world. The protestors for the support of “Palestine”/Hamas have no regard for the fact that Hamas started the war by their unprovoked bloody massacring attack on defenseless Israeli settlements. These protestors are joined together in their condemnation/hate of Israel, and no facts are going to change their minds.
Another current example is the hate driven agenda against Trump. No matter what good national policy he enacted, the hate filled Democrats will destroy it regardless of what national harm their action creates. (Unlimited illegal immigration is the most harmful action they have taken, which will be fully manifested in the near future as crime and homelessness dramatically increases). There is no positive factual information supporting Trump that is able to persuade the Democrats to change their minds concerning their hate of Trump and his policies.
It is a frustrating situation when (God given) truth and logic are no longer a reason to change course in our nation. This is especially evident when dealing with the failed policies of the liberal left. As long as they are able to isolate themselves from any negative impact of their policies, they will continue on regardless of what harm it causes to others.
This rejection of God’s wisdom and logic is well illustrated In the book of Proverbs, chapter 1, verses 21 to 33.
