Sam Brownback: A Humble and Gracious Man

Filed under: Hillary Clinton,Sam Brownback — Psycheout @ 8:19 pm

A lot of our liberal commenters (who presumably worship at the altar of Clinton) constantly bash religion. I would not be surprised if the following causes many far-left heads to explode.

Sisyphus has already alerted our readers to the release of a wonderful and heartwarming book: From Power to Purpose: A Remarkable Journey of Faith and Compassion. It is indeed an inspiring read. I recommend everyone get a copy and be enlightened by its wisdom.

In the book, Senator Brownback reveals that he expunged himself of his hatred for the Clintons and even apologized to a likely stoney-faced Senator Clinton.

An epiphany:

Republican presidential candidate Sam Brownback says he harbored a “hatred” of Bill and Hillary Rodham Clinton until he experienced a religious awakening in the mid-1990s.

Brownback, a senator from the conservative central state of Kansas, details in a new book how the change in outlook led him to make a stunning apology a few years later to Hillary Clinton — a Democrat who is also running for president in 2008.

“I was considering what I should say when I confronted all the anger that I held for the Clintons,” the Kansas senator writes in the book, “From Power to Purpose: A Remarkable Journey of Faith and Compassion.”

“I thought, I hate them for what they are doing to the country and I feel justified in hating them for it,” he writes.

An apology:

He said his apology came about when he told an audience at a prayer breakfast that he used to have a “hatred for Bill and Hillary” because of their politics. He spotted Sen. Clinton in the crowd and, speaking directly to her, said he “realized that those thoughts of hatred were wrong. I apologized to her for them. I don’t know what she thought, but I believe it made a difference.”

When you take that large step to devote yourself to G-d, everything changes. You are freed from the darker nature that dwells within all human beings.

Even more traumatic was his 1995 bout with cancer and surgery to remove malignant melanoma from his right side. Brownback says he finally found peace when he resolved to devote himself to G-d.

“One night I got down on my knees and said ‘OK, Lord, that’s it. I give up. It’s all Yours,'” Brownback writes.

I urge all of our liberal commenters to pause and reflect. Take that leap of faith and start a relationship with Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior.

  1. If you believe that all Liberals are godless atheists, you’re dead wrong.

  2. I’ve never harbored a hatred of anyone, and I’m a moderate centrist, or as you call it, ‘a godless, commie, heliofascist, smellypants LIE-beral.”

  3. I found Sam’s book to be as inspirational and uplifting as anything Billy Graham or Charles Stanley have written. The single negative thing about Sam Brownback becoming our next President is that he won’t have as much time to dedicate to his writing. That is the sacrifice we will have to make for a better United States.

  4. Do you guys read the approval polls? He has zero chance of becoming the president! I will seriously start taking ultra-high-stakes wagers on whether or not he becomes president. He probably won’t even make it past the primaries.

  5. Brownback is a great American, far greater than any man his detractors are even capable of imagining. They only love men for their sins and their evils. If they had their way, America would probably have a Sodomite President.

  6. Amen, Sisyphus. I do not know which fare worse for this country, a homosexual or a militant feminazi. Either one would be fine for the Liberals so long as tolerance for their sins is mandated by the government.

    Short of re-electing President Bush for a third term, Sam Brownback is the best chance we have of keeping America growing in the right direction. Americans are disgusted by Liberalism and that is exactly why he will win in 2008.

  7. “Americans are disgusted by Liberalism”

    That’s not what this map says…

  8. “That’s not what this map says…”

    On that map, the whole country is reddish except for DC. Thanks for proving our point for us!

  9. Are you blind Sisyphus? The whole country was within ten points either way of 50.

    Anyhow, here’s an even more accurate map. It’s divided by county, with each county proportionately sized to it’s population, and importance to the electoral college.

    And that was with John Kerry, who had almost no convictions or opinions. The only votes he got was because he wasn’t Bush. If the Dems had nominated someone who could actually get people interested, President Bush would not be in office right now.

  10. Oh boy, you guys are gonna get a real kick out of the Pres election in 2008… I can’t wait to see your responses when Brownback doesn’t even make the top Conservative candidate🙂

    Even though Gaines-Crockett is locked in her Southern dirtfarm trailer, she should know that the vast majority of America simply thinks she is an idiot.

  11. 1. I´m a liberal. I´m no atheist.
    2. Why should anyone worship Clinton? He was a democrat. And that´s abotu the best thing you can say about him. He was for sure no god or something like that.
    3. Kudos to Mr. Brownback for that apology. While I do not share mayn of his opinions, my opinion about his character just went up a few degrees.

    “Do you guys read the approval polls? He has zero chance of becoming the president! I will seriously start taking ultra-high-stakes wagers on whether or not he becomes president. He probably won’t even make it past the primaries.”

    You´re stealing my idea! :9
    I´d wanted to make bets with a rate of 1:100.

    “Brownback is a great American, far greater than any man his detractors are even capable of imagining. They only love men for their sins and their evils. If they had their way, America would probably have a Sodomite President.”

    Don´t generalise, Sisi. Just don´t. Brownback wouldn´t do it, either.

    “Short of re-electing President Bush for a third term, Sam Brownback is the best chance we have of keeping America growing in the right direction. Americans are disgusted by Liberalism and that is exactly why he will win in 2008.”

    Well, the saying says that it´s only over when it´s over, but right now it seems like the democrats are winning 2008 big time.
