Elizabeth Dole’s question

U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Dole has a new ad out that asks, “If Godless Americans threw a party in your honor, would you go?”

Since the question is directed to me as a voter, not a candidate, allow me to answer that question:

I would decide whether or not to go based on the criteria by which I always decide whether or not to go to a party. Those criteria include:

  • Where and when is it? Do I have a conflict?
  • Will anyone be there whom I know?
  • Does the party have an agenda or theme (e.g., Halloween, New Year’s, somebody’s birthday)?
  • Will there be cake? Ice cream?
  • Would I have the opportunity to proselytize?
  • And, most importantly, can I get a babysitter?

Would I ditch the party solely because Godless Americans threw it? Heck, no. For one thing, at least half the people Jesus spent time with appear to have been atheists.

Also: Party.
