A cultural divide?

Christianity Today's Ted Olsen does a good weblog, in the weblog sense of the word where he brings good stuff from all over the net into one day's page, and there are some good items in here about the 'culture war' that pundits are beginning to refer to.

Interesting, Democratic leaders and pundits are scratching their heads, incredulous that people want to talk about faith . . . and Bush was incredulous that anyone on earth could hate America? There is a cultural divide. How do we span it?

I feel the next Wineskins theme coming on. Help me develop ideas.

Greg, I think you used a good word to explore in your series or article. The word "incredulous". I have stated in one of my earlier posts to you that I really can't understand how a person can vote in favor of someone who is pro-abortion, and I know that there are those who really can't understand my position either. This does not necessarily translate into anger or hatred, just an incredulousness, an inability to understand the other point. Any dialogue will necessarily try to bridge this gap, but I think it is un-bridgeable to those of both sides who feel so strongly about it. Were it just a matter of getting all the facts, the fray would not now be approaching 40 years old.

I guess it depends on how you define "morale". My more liberal friends are agahst at how I can support a president that is killing people. After all, killing is immoral to them as issues such as abortion might be to me. It's not that more liberal viewers are "immoral" they just emphasize "different" morales.
