Spiritual Life Coaching – Conservatives

Spiritual Life Coaching – Conservatives

Labels are really quick ways to relegate people into compartments. They may or may not mean anything. There are people of good will who are conservatives. Are different views healthy? Yes, absolutely. Bigotry and hate are not behaviors we want to tolerate, we for the sake of our freedoms have even tolerated some abhorrent behaviors – these are not a part of truly conservative ideology. In order to conserve the past – to see value in things that have historic and fundamental meaning is a good thing. It may not always be progressive but it adds balance. No one tolerates violence in the name of conservatism. What happened in Charleston, for instance, is a scar on our nation. Yet, overreaction and an overreaching cleanse of the nation’s historic symbols is equally disturbing. As an historian of the Civil War symbols of the South have their place in context. Our nation needs healing and toleration not over-reaction or a cleansing of historically relevant symbols. When I walked the fields of Gettysburg I saw symbols of South and North. The vanquished were welcomed by Lincoln back into the dream of an undivided nation. Hate struck Lincoln down but but hate never fueled his leadership.  he had a vision that we still have. Let’s conserve what is worth conserving and learn to be more tolerant of each other. Good words of scripture remind us, “As it is written: “None is righteous, no, not one;” Romans 3:10

Be Well….
