Comparing the Two Conventions — part 2

Another way to contemplate the difference between the RN and the still incomplete DNC is to ask of each, Is the party behind each convention trying to bring out the best or the worst in its supporters?

I hope it takes you far less than two seconds to answer this question and be ready for the next: Do we want leaders who emphasize what they are against or leaders who emphasize what they are for?

A third question: If one convention emphasized excluding people and the other puts great effort on being inclusive, which is more like Jesus?

If you’ve never read the four stories of Jesus (the four Gospels in the New Testament), you may not know that one of the reasons the “establishment” hated Jesus is that he was so radically inclusive. We need to keep that in mind during these election cycle.
