Tale of a wolf in sheep's clothing

This idea has probably been around for centuries and was immortalized in a sermon by Jesus Christ: "Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves."(Matthew 7:15). Jesus indicates their true nature will be revealed by their actions. "By their fruits shall ye know them." (Mathew 7:16)

If you voted for Barack Obama, do not feel regret or remorse or guilt. You could not have known in advance his hidden nature. "Forgive them, for they know not what they do." (Luke 23:34) There were hints during his campaign. There were signs. But who has the time or inclination to really investigate, right? Lesson learned.

Worse yet, guard against the temptation to justify your uninformed vote by pretending Obama is not who he really is, by becoming an apologist, by spinning facts to show a more positive view. Selling your soul to cover a previous mistake has to be the most unhealthy of unhealthy practices, wouldn't you say?

Finally, remember that your vote will be redeemed because evil must by nature sabotage itself.  Those who originally voted for Adolph Hitler and Benito Mussolini (who won elections by big margins) eventually watched those who they had misidentified as heroes destroy themselves. Yes, these men caused untold suffering.  But that's how we learn lessons (lessons like digging for facts before dreamy-eyed voting).

One old story tells of how the wolf so well imitated a sheep that he started becoming a sheep. Today you occasionally hear a leftist screaming at Obama: "You are becoming one of them."  But most leftists don't have such a worry.  They know there is no way Obama can become a true American.

Another fable has the wolf being discovered and hanged.  A hand full of right-wingers would love to see Obama impeached and tried ... for any number of treasonous offences. But Obama has pulled the wool over too many eyes for that to happen, so how will this story really end?

Still another tale has the wolf encumbered by his disguise.  He cannot operate as efficiently as either a real sheep or an undisguised wolf.  Although he usually feels the need to play timid, his pent up aggression occassionally breaks fee and teeth are bared, thus making him want to hide his true nature even more thoroughly.  Living a contradiction, feeling the need to always be careful not to let it be seen who he really is, he becomes more and more paralyzed and evermore given to sending contradictory, confused signals.  Even then, his true nature still erupts in private, and the guilt of his deceit haunts him.

Poor wolf.  Maybe if a shepard prays for him he will see the value of abandoning his deception and leaving the sheep to live in peace and freedom.

To really understand the evil psychology of modern "liberal progressives," read Ayn Rand's "Atlas Shrugged"

"God's laws will keep your minds at peace, because peace IS His Will, and His laws are established to uphold it. His are the laws of freedom, but yours are the laws of bondage. Since freedom and bondage are irreconcilable, their laws CANNOT BE UNDERSTOOD TOGETHER. The laws of God work only for your good, and there ARE no other laws beside His. Everything else is merely lawLESS, and therefore chaotic." -Jesus Christ in A Course in Miracles
