More Dark on American Light

“To be human is to be biased, and to be a citizen is to be political. Impartial judgment is a hope, rather than a boast, for those of us who only see through a glass darkly. Like humility, it probably isn’t the kind of attribute someone can possess knowingly. Human beings spin whenever they speak, and the only No Spin Zone, according to biblical witness, is the coming kingdom of God. If we claim to be without spin, we lie to ourselves” (David Dark, The Gospel According to America: A Meditation on a God-blessed, Christ-haunted Idea (Louisville, KY: Westminster John Knox Press, 2005), 30).
