EdisonLBM said in a comment,
"Perhaps bush went halfway because he realizes that the first thing needed for the reunification of the US is a little compromise?"
After trying unsuccessfully to answer in one comment, I chose to do it in a post on the matter.
OK. First of all the last thing we need right now is compromise. We need to put good men in government who value life and our Godly Heritage. Nothing less.
What do we want to do, put a kinda, ok sorta guy who might value life on the bench of the United States Supreme Court?
Rom 12:21 Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.
Also, the Isrealites got in trouble time and time again for compromising with the evil people around them. No we do not need a comepromise.
EdisonLBM speaks about the "reunification of the (United States)" I should like to quote Abraham Lincoln.
"I believe this government cannot endure permanently half slave and half free. I do not expect the Union to be dissolved -- I do not expect the house to fall -- but I do expect it will cease to be divided. It will become all one thing, or all the other. Either the opponents of slavery will arrest the further spread of it, and place it where the public mind shall rest in the belief that it is in the course of ultimate extinction; or its advocates will push it forward, till it shall become alike lawful in all the States, old as well as new -- North as well as South."
A nation can either be all one thing or all the other. If cannot remain divided.
Mark 3:25 "If a house is divided against itself, that house will not be able to stand.
We can be a nation that values its unborn children in its national policy or we can be a nation that kills them off. We cannot be both.
