Well, here's another quote from our friend, Running Gator, which shows how thoroughly some people can misunderstand a topic, and still willingly opine on it, to wit:

"A Godly worldview does not have a direction attached to it, it is neither left nor right.

Yet on this thread and this forum if you are not a far right extremist you are not Godly and a Christian in name only"



The scope and depth of misunderstandings here are both very great, so one hardly knows where to begin. Well, let's start at the start: "A Godly (sic) worldview does not have a direction attached to it...." WRONG! "He will hear a voice behind him when he turns to the right hand or to the left, saying: 'This is the way; walk ye in it."

Care to try for Double Jeopardy, where the stakes are even higher?

"Yet on this thread and this forum if you are not a far right extremist you are not Godly and a Christian in name only" STEEEEEERIKE TWO! "Left" AND "Right" properly refer to how disciples of Hegel interpreted Hegelian teaching. The early Communists (and most still today) made much of Hegel. Some people were big on interpreting Hegel's spiritual thought as well. Those who took the secular route were called "Left Wing" and those who saw Hegel's spiritual side were known as 'Right Wing.' These were titles used in shorthand in academia, especially in France, Austria, and Germany. So BOTH Left and Right refer to how people used Hegelian Dialectic. Stalin ca. 1935 put out to all loyal Communists that henceforth, those who believed in INTERNATIONAL SOCIALISM HEADED FROM MOSCOW would be known as 'Left wing' while those who believed in NATIONAL SOCIALISM for each independent nation would be referred to as 'Right wing.' Of course COMINTERN's willing stenographers--better known as the mainstream press--immediatly began following Stalin's orders.

So the truth is, that here at Worthy Boards, few of us could be called either Left or Right wingers, because most of us here reject Hegelian dialectics altogether.

Please learn a tad more before trying to take me on! Arrogant ranting will NOT get you past the facts of history, philosophy, and Bible, here at Worthy!

I have nothing more to say to one so supremely self-assured. Fare well. You may well learn smething some day.
