  • Joel C. Rosenberg: “I thought the best line of Biden’s speech was this, ‘We must end this un-civil war.’ True. Overall, it was an excellent address, non-partisan, non-confrontational, laced with Bible passages, included a call for National prayer, and then closed with Garth Brooks signing ‘Amazing Grace.’ Surprising. Unexpected. And encouraging. We all need to be praying for President Biden and Vice President Harris, and their families. Where we disagree with them, we should — and will — be clear, firm but respectful. But when they do things right, we should be willing to say so.”
