I have to put out a quick post here following Pope Francis’ speech before our congress. To me it was very inspiring but obviously there were those there that simply refused to listen to anything he said. Instead they sat stoically on their hands while those around them frequently stood and applauded.
This reminded me of the last words in the final verse of one of my favorite songs which is entitled “Vincent” by Don McClean. It goes like this…
They would not listen,
They are not listening still
Perhaps they never will
I just cannot believe that the current GOP leadership really represent all those who claim allegiance to that party. Are all those millions who make up the GOP base so close minded that they will not even consider listening to anything that might threaten their current views? I certain hope not. The Bible calls that “hardened hearts”. Perhaps its time to look elsewhere for your leaders?
