[ by Charles Cameron — let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light? ]
does Cheney‘s “dark side” comment sound less obnoxious when following Franklin Delano Roosevelt‘s “walk with the devil”? alternatively, does Cheney’s remark make FDR’s look less appealing? Perhaps you’re in agreement with both sentiments? if you agree with FDR but not with Cheney — when did we cross the Iraq bridge? at what point should we “put on the armour of light”?
FDR apparently claimed he was quoting an Orthodox / Bulgarian proverb — I doubt an Orthodox theologian would have gone on record with such a claim, and haven’t been able to confirm a source as yet — my thanks to John Schindler, Grurray and Velina Tchakarova for their help with the search.
