Ms. Acevedo would do well to exhibit some intelligence here and answer her own question: “Does Rev. Price and do the Republicans want military confrontation?”
First, you can’t exclude Democrats, Libertarians or any other party for that matter, as they all have members who disagree on the question of intervention. Everyone I know personally or engage in conversation on this subject is absolutely against intervention. Therefore I can reasonably conclude that this consensus can be largely applied across the political spectrum. That Ms. Acevedo includes all Republicans in her assumption shows very little faith on her part.
I read Rev. Price’s columns every week. The good reverend writes articles covering a wide range of narratives, all ending on a positive note. “Diatribes”? Look it up.
Again, Ms. Acevedo incriminates without factual basis. The new word she learned this week (“solipsism”) applies very much to Obama. She should examine any number of her president’s speeches and observe the inordinate number of personal pronouns he uses. For him, it really is about him.
Incidentally, many in his own party apply the label “weak” to his responses to global situations, not just Republicans.
Note also, Rev. Price is retired from full-time pastoring, meaning, he is free to express his opinion on political subjects as much as John Doe. However, Rev. Price speaks with gauged clarity and pastoral caring when speaking on subjects that appeal to, or affect, the general populace. He is not belittling Barack Obama; Barack does that to himself with his style of leadership.
Rather, Dr. Price issues warnings that need to be heeded and spiritual advice that should be learned. When viewed through a lens, all the work Dr. Price has done in, and for, the community over the years, any reasoned person can conclude that he is all about love, not war.
