As someone who has been in radio for nearly twenty years, I truly admire Rush Limbaugh's tremendous skills as a broadcaster. To spend three hours mid-day (not in drive-time) without guests, and still maintain his huge listening audience (and keep their attention as he does) is a truly remarkable accomplishment. I'll give him that.
While I have certain sympathies for Limbaugh's brand of libertarian/small-government conservatism, his lack of any category for human sinfulness (and the need to restrain it) has always troubled me. I'm glad to know that I'm not alone (h.t. Gene Veith). Click here: Limbaugh vs. the Front Porch | Front Porch Republic
Speaking of Rush and all the hubbub about his recent comments re: Obama's presidency failing, it is interesting to note that a mere three years ago a majority of democrats admitted to hoping that George W. Bush's presidency failed. Don't all partisans hope that the other guy fails? This is just another sad example of the fact that the level of political discourse in this country is an embarrassment to all of us--or it should be.

Uncertain times often bring out the worst in people. David Wilkerson (of the "Cross and the Switchblade" fame) is telling everyone he knows that the Holy Spirit is urging him to warn people of some sort of impending judgment to come upon New York and New Jersey. It is remarkable to me that these "dire warning" messages seem to come more often when a democrat (especially one considered to be no friend of evangelicals) is in the White House. But didn't 9-1-1 came to pass when an evangelical was president??? Meanwhile, so much for the sufficiency of Scripture. Wilkerson gets his news directly from the Spirit.

Come to think of it, why should we worry about what the Holy Spirit is supposedly telling David Wilkerson? Date setter Steve Coerper expects the Rapture on, or about, May 31. Hmmm . . . Who you gonna believe???? Click here: The Final Fulfillment of Pentecost
