The English language can be extremely limiting. The events in Tampa were beyond all words, so was the mindset of some former Ron Paul supporters I know. But, as you have said, love is not so much a feeling, but an act of the will. So we love them, while continuing to stand for what is right and graciously communicating the benefit of our stand.
*sigh* Sometimes I find communication with them far more difficult than communication here, maybe because typing allows for more time and thought than simply speaking one's mind (or holding one's peace, for that matter). Or maybe the disagreement about freedom really is a deeper disagreement than I care to admit, or we are distant enough to not allow for full communication. I don't know.
But I do know that in the end, as Ron Paul himself said, "We will win in due time."
But that man should play the tyrant over God, and find Him a better man than himself, is astonishing drama indeed!~~D. Sayers
Love won! Deliverance from Tyranny is on the way! Col. 2:13-15
