Editorial Note

Recently I had posted a photo of our president that had been altered to make him look like Heath Ledger’s Joker from the movie The Dark Knight. I removed the image after someone I am close to was offended by it. This friend reminded me that I have a responsibility as a Christian to act in a manner which is appropriate. And while I still believe that Obama’s agenda is destructive and should be opposed by all; and that satire is an effective weapon, particularly when the object thinks so highly of himself, I probably crossed the line. I am sorry.

So I took the photo down and replaced it with the chastised puppy.

A good post in a similar vein from Justin Taylor’s Between Two Worlds.

As you know, I'm among those who are sufficiently alarmed about what Mr. Obama is doing to this country. I never thought I'd live to see the day that people would elect a democrat so far to the extreme left that you might as well call him a socialiat. I'm concerned the damage will be great, and even if we elect republicans from here on out, I likely won't see things repaired back to the way they ought to be in my lifetime.

That being said, I have a life to live and I can't live it in fear.

That's a roundabout way of saying Mike, you did the right thing removing the Joker / Obama image, and you did it for the right reasons.

I linked to and read Justin Taylor's article, and I recommend it. As Christians, we have to be smart in how we pray, and smart in what we say. We can't be careless, especially with His Word.
