"Abortion is absolutely a political and philosophical issue."

John Rabe disagrees with the late President Gerald Ford's thoughts on abortion (here). You can't give a much bigger cop-out than to say, "Well, I'm personally against [X], but I don't think we have to politicize it. Politics have nothing to do with what I personally believe."

Looking back now on all the coverage about President Ford, the recurring theme driven by Brian Williams and his kind was it's so great that Jerry Ford was such a normal person. Yes, that's exactly what we want from our presidents - someone average. Can you imagine what our country would be like today if the greatest thing one could say about George Washington - or Abraham Lincoln - is how normal he was?

UPDATE: Pastor Mark Daniels has some thoughts about my second paragraph. Welcome, Better Living readers!
