Kierkegaard on Obama

Wonderful quote found in a Neumayr (no surprise...) essay on the Notre Dame crap.

“A passionate tumultuous age will overthrow everything, pull everything down,” wrote Soren Kierkegaard, “but a revolutionary age that is at the same time reflective and passionless leaves everything standing but cunningly empties it of significance.”

Obama is that cool revolutionary. He won’t even bother to topple the Church in America; he will leave it standing and co-opt it from within.

He won't succeed with the Church, of course.

But he might succeed with the country.
