The Death of Compassion?

One of the reasons The Pink Flamingo is such an admirer of The Great Man is because of his compassion.  He led the US the way he believed, by putting into practice the teachings of Christ.  He is the perfect example of a living model of the Fruits of the Spirit.

Unfortunately, now that we are living in a libertarian world, there is no kindness, no compassion, and no human decency.  Libertarians don’t believe in them.  They take their teachings from a vile, miserable excuse of a human being, Ayn Rand, instead of Christ.

“…”My concern of course is that the United States gets weary of being in Afghanistan and says ‘It’s not worth it, let’s leave’ and Laura and I believe that if that were to happen, women would suffer again,” he told Fox’s Greta Van Susteren. “And we don’t believe that’s in the interest of the United States or the world to create a safe haven for terrorists and stand by and watch women’s rights be abused.”

“We liberated Afghanistan from the Taliban because of providing a save haven for al Qaeda,” he continued. “But I believe then and believe now we have an obligation to help this young Democracy to survive and thrive.”

 

Bush’s comments came the same day he and former first lady Laura Bush kicked off a two-day conference at Southern Methodist University focusing on women’s rights issues in Afghanistan – an issue Mrs. Bush also championed when she was in the White House.

“Isolationism will end up subjecting certain people to horrors that I don’t see how our country can live with that kind of decision,” the former president also said….”
