TONY CAMPBELL COMMENTARY: Insanity In The Keyes Of Alan
H/T Booker Rising Blog -The moderate Republican takes issue with conservative activist Alan Keyes' recent claims about President Barack Obama:
"I have always thought Keyes was a bit unhinged but he has really lost all sense of reality in the video clip. Just in case you think I am joking… here are a few of the more unsettling thoughts offered by Keyes: 1) Barack Obama is the 'greatest crisis that this country has ever seen' 2) 'The United States of America will cease to exist' 3) Barack Obama is an 'abomination'. As a seminary graduate, the word abomination struck me as a bit harsh to define a person who was elected to public office.
According to Dictionary.com, the word means a person who is loathsome or disgusting. In terms of theology, the word is used to define people or actions that God hates. So to translate the meaning of what Alan Keyes said is that the President of the United States is loathsome, disgusting and hated by God. This type of rhetoric is in very bad taste and demonstrates what can happen when unstable people are given license to say whatever comes into their brain."
