Where Credit Is Due

The atmosphere today has gotten to the point where any hint of racism, bigotry, inconconsistency, or spitting on the sidewalk is offensive in some way. The most extreme of those sentiments is of past leaders.

Who among us (or them) is perfect in every way? Why can’t we not admire those things they did that were good, and not agree with everything they did otherwise? Does not the good given to our legacy warrant something more than destroying every semblance of history?

These overeactions are typical of those who expect perfection in people, including those brilliant minds who authored the most important documents that created our nation. God can redeem each soul, we could at least redeem their good works.
