By all accounts, Karl Rove is an extremely nice and polite man. Big whoop. This is the wrong era to give a rat’s ass about superficial crap. Like every other person who loathes America’s Tea Parties, Rove is a statist. Should you and he differ on how you should live your life, he believes you must submit to him. Should you fight back back against him, as the Tea Parties do? Well…peasants are always revolting.
You know one reason why Karl “Christian” Rove doesn’t believe in God? Deism requires a modicum of humility. This isn’t to say that atheists (like edo) can’t be humble, or that believers can’t be as carnal and prideful as anyone else (90% of televangelists). But when a man like Rove refuses to consider that he might be wrong about your life? He’ll never find the divine because he already worships himself; Rove will have no other gods before him.
And again, notice who his Devil is.
