Been Miered?October 28, 2005
Here's an article about how "Miered" may enter our lexicon like "Borked" did. BREITBART.COM - Just The News Here's the difference:
"to get 'borked' was 'to be unscrupulously torpedoed by an opponent,' while to get 'miered' was to be 'unscrupulously torpedoed by an ally.'"
We Christians often take each other out through "friendly fire" as the Miers case show—I still do not understand the opposition to her that came from many on the religious right, since she seems to share the same core beliefs. Unfortunately, some people seemed to want a fight, but she was not going to spark one (now that’s a Christ-like attitude!)
This does not mean we should not criticize each other, but it does mean we should wait until we know all the facts and then do it in a Christ-like manner. Neither of those features was prevalent in the Miers case.
