In the 8th Circle

We find Muhammad in HellTo one of the lowest circles of Hell and one of the most grotesque of Hell's punishments Dante consigns the "sowers of discord"
--those souls who, as translator John Ciardi puts it, rend asunder what God has intended to be united. Their punishment is to be hacked and torn through all eternity by a great demon with a bloody sword. After each mutilation the souls are compelled to drag their broken bodies around the pit and to return to the demon, for in the course of their circuit their wounds knit in time to be inflicted anew. Thus is the law of retribution observed, each sinner suffering according to his degree.

Who are the sowers of discord in our time? They are the people who divide what was meant to be united, the people who turn marriage, the fundamental institution of human society, into a battleground over homosexual "marriage"; the people who bring millions of unassimilable immigrants into a once harmonious country and thus divide that country forever; the people who accuse all Republicans and conservatives of being accessories to murder simply for being Republicans and conservatives; the people who call white Americans guilty racists just for existing; the people who have turned our country against itself.

Your Say

The sowers of discord of our time fully intend to turn our country against itself. The most shameful ones are the bleeding hearts who go along with the "feel good" shams and scams of the Left simply because they lack the courage and selflessness to seek the truth. Coneniently, therefore, they will never need to stand for truth. They are the ones who choose to "feel good" rather than feel accountable. It's "playing dumb" on a national scale. They are like the addict who needs a scape goat and the Left is the willing enabler. They historically and together end up with blood on their hands and a newly disguised Leftist cause to make them feel good all over again and to feed their pathetic addiction. We need either an exorcism or a 12 step program for bleeding hearts. If the Obama's reign of terror doesn't wake them up, then nothing will, I fear.

Obama may go down in history as the greatest American president of all time, if he can cause the left to see the light in time for us to turn this nation back to it's founding principles. America was supposed to be the "new world order". Not some type of conspiracy theory NWO, but a world with freedom and liberty, free from tyranny. We must rise again to be the light for the world.

In reference to my previous comment, I probably should have said that Obama would go down in the history books for being the president who only did ONE good thing for the nation. That statement still requires that the people of this country manage to turn the ship of state around. Sorry.
