Mike Huckabee and Kenneth Copeland

Followupg on my post, "What's This World Coming To?," I noticed that Kenneth Copeland recently interviewed Gov. Mike Huckabee regarding the question of how faith affects a person's character and their approach to public policy. To watch the Sunday "condensed" version of their exchange, click here. To watch the entire series of daily broadcasts featuring Gov. Huckabee, try looking on one of the following web pages: KCM current programs or KCM program archives. You may have to scroll down the page a bit to come to the listings for the Huckabee interview.

In another vein, Brian Bailey, author of, "The Blogging Church," recently wrote in his "Leave It Behind" blog following a poll he took of his readers to see which Christmas ads they liked best,
First, nearly everyone's favorite commercial was done by their favorite candidate. In a way, this should be obvious, but I still found it surprising. It's instructive to realize that when you're watching a speech or commercial by your candidate and thinking, How could anyone not like this guy?", others are wondering how anyone could. Once you've found a candidate whose message you connect with, you view everything about that person and his or her opponents through a filter.

Do you agree with that?

  1. I think I'd have to agree Mr. Bailey's assertion.

    As much as I'd like to think of myself as being unbiased, I'm sure I see many things through a sort of "filter". So I'm probably not always entirely objective. That said, I do try to make an conscious effort to set my filter as close to the "unbiased" position as possible.

    I find for myself that the best way is to give everything a second look. I find that the more times a run bits of information through my filter, I tend to let go of any emotional/knee-jerk reactions to whatever it is I'm seeing, hearing, etc.

    It's sort of like seeing a movie or TV show for a second or third time. You start to notice things you didn't notice the first time.
