The biblical legend says that father Abraham once showed hospitality to a couple of travelers, and it turned out that they were actually messengers from God (what are called “angels”).
While I am just a commenter on events, some of the visitors here are part of the story, for example, Mark Davis, son of Frank Marshall Davis (“Frank” in Obama’s autobiography) left a few comments, and the great niece of Dr. Rodney West, who delivered her at the Kapi’olani hospital in 1961, dropped by. (The late Dr. West is currently the leading candidate for the doctor who delivered Barack Obama.) We’ve benefited from the contributions of other bloggers, notably Lauren Collins and Phil Cave plus NBC, Reality Check, (and many others) as well as practicing and retired attorneys. From the other side we’ve seen the likes of Mario Apuzzo, Cort Wrotnowski, Joseph Farah and Ron Polland (both as Ron Polarik long ago and more recently as PetJake).
I commented to Magic Bullet recently:
It is a huge challenge to respond with any freshness or interest to the same old, same old –” or to even pay enough attention to see whether it is the same old, same old.
And it is hard, I know. It’s easy to take out the frustration of being muzzled on birther blogs on someone. Nevertheless, the birther we trash just might be someone who has skin in the game and with a little hospitality might be coaxed into revealing a little about what drives them. Imagine the profound lost opportunity if someone like Terry Lakin showed up here anonymously, and we ran him off without the chance to talk.
Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers, for by this some have entertained angels without knowing it.
Hebrews 13:2 New American Standard Bible
