There is no room for idolatry in a free country

Excellent comparison of the worship of Joe Paterno and the worship of The Greatest President of All Time.

When people by in to a legend, they become incapable of seeing the truth. Anything which could shatter the legend is willfully ignored. Not just because it would destroy the legend itself, but also because it would mean the person’s investment into said legend would have been false from the beginning.

This is so obvious among Obama supporters.  Not one can answer this question.  None hold him accountable for essentially being the third term of the Bush presidency.  None hold him accountable for the economy.

They call his position on gay marriage “evolved”.  It is the exact same position held by the one true evil, Dick Cheney, while he was Vice President.

He can do no wrong in their eyes.

That’s really, really dangerous.
