speaking his truth
Andrew Breitbart is one cool guy. In terms of cultural icons if I have any then he certainly leads the pack. How can you not smile when he is speaking?

Here’s how I look at it. I used to be an atheist, and I became an agnostic, and now I exist in a place where I say I bat third on the Judeo-Christian softball team. I’ve had too many things happen in my life that, as my father-in-law, Orson Bean, says, there’s no such thing as coincidences. I’m starting to doubt my doubts. But I would still say I’m an agnostic who, when watching the debate between Dinesh D’Souza and Christopher Hitchens, I’m usually laughing and slapping my knee with Hitchens but rooting for D’Souza. I’m desirous of moving toward the Judeo-Christian side. In the past I took solace in my agnosticism. One reason is that, during my agnostic years—I call them my nihilistic years—during which I lived in a world of moral relativism and not believing in objective truths, I didn’t sleep well at night. I was living in a world of moral chaos. The more I started to listen to people like Dennis Prager and rational people who were religious—not fly-by-nights like Tammy Faye Bakker, Jimmy Swaggart and Benny Hinn. When you get past the hucksters and get to people like David Mamet, who now speaks of Judeo-Christianity, and Dennis Prager, it makes a hell of a lot more sense than the nihilism I embraced. I now find myself fighting alongside many Christians and Jews who believe Judeo-Christianity is the backbone of American culture. Until somebody gives me a better replacement than Judeo-Christianity, I’m not going to be part of the team that’s trying to tear down that pillar and replace it with nihilism and cultural and moral relativism.

It reminded me of someone I used to blog for on another site. He felt the same, not quite yet ready to submit to a greater God but more than willing to accept the reality that the best way to grow and thrive as human beings is under the stewardship of the Judeo – Christian principals.

Brothers and Sisters,
oops my bad! I forgot to warn you that the link I provided will lead you to the front doors of hell (Big Hollywood) and if that’s not bad enough I also give you instructions to follow their link to a Playboy Magazine article. Now I don’t want to get you fired so don’t go til your home and only go then if you are armed with your pocket version of the King James Bible. I know you can’t be trusted on your own not to go looking for “nekkid” pictures.
