Attack on Scott Walker’s faith turns into beautiful moment of enlightenment for liberal

Maybe it’s unreasonable to expect secular progressives to understand.

In a comment mocking Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker for his Christian faith, Political Wire publisher Taegan Goddard seemed to be stumped by the very idea that Christians communicate with God through prayer.

Goddard wrote:

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (R) frequently says he’s waiting for “God’s calling” to run for president, so he was recently asked under public records laws to provide call “a copy/transcript of all communications with God, the Lord, Christ, Jesus or any other form of deity.”

The snarky remark was the latest salvo in the left’s mad rush to eviscerate all things Scott Walker — the price the likely GOP presidential contender can expect for pushing to an early lead in the race.

But things didn’t quite go as planned when Goddard turned to Twitter to espouse his mockery:

Of all the expected criticism that befell Goddard, perhaps the most unexpected came from Hot Air’s Ed Morrissey.

In a tweet that has since been removed, Goddard responded: “Serious question: Can you divine God’s will from that prayer? Scott Walker says he’s trying to. I’m not sure he can.”

With a Christian disposition, Morrissey then began the saintly task of educating a non-believer, as seen in this series of tweets:

As enlightening as the at-length chat may have been for Goddard, the odds are he did not take Morrissey up on his offer.

But, as the Bible says, the planting of seeds will reap a harvest: “And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up.” ~ Galatians 6:9

In either case, after a little reflection, Goddard offered an apology:
