In Death Elizabeth Edwards Inspires Talk of God

RedTracker| Elizabeth Edwards last public statements have created waves, even in her death. Elizabeth Edwards expressed her farewell, beginning: “You all know that I have been sustained throughout my life by three saving graces — my family, my friends, and a faith in the power of resilience and hope.”

Edwards was criticized by American Power blogger neocon Donald Douglas, for not mentioning God.

“Being anti-religion is cool, so Edwards’ non-theological theology gets props from the neo-communists,” he said. “Still, at her death bed and giving what most folks are calling a final goodbye, Elizabeth Edwards couldn’t find it somewhere down deep to ask for His blessings as she prepares for the hereafter? I guess that nihilism I’ve been discussing reaches up higher into the hard-left precincts than I thought.”

Politics Daily religion reporter David Gibson writes an excellent piece examining Elizabeth Edwards and her ideas about God, who she believed might be female as much as male. Her words echo the prevailing views of educated men in America. Douglas tends to represent the majority female view. Like Doughas, 65 percent of American women believe that God is watching our every move. That groups subdivides again, in terms of what God will do about our lives.
