The partisan mindset

Ross Douthat wrote this in an essay in yesterday's New York Times:

Is there anything good to be said about the partisan mindset? On an individual level, no. It corrupts the intellect and poisons the wells of human sympathy. Honor belongs to the people who resist partisanship’s pull, instead of rowing with it.

Amen

Fr. Gunter,

Thanks for your comment and for reading my blog. I hope you found something -- anything! -- that might be of use to you.

I wasn't sure how to respond because I'm not sure if LJ would notify you that I had commented. It is a bit of a ghetto in the blogsphere.

I'd love to chat with you about Indiana, Dr. Kenneson (who I had in several classes), the Ekklesia Project or whatever. I'm just unsure how to get a hold of you.

Feel free to email me andrewnford (at) gmail (dot) com. Have a great day!

AF
