Did The Media Blow The Approach to Layton's Death?

I think so and I have the "call them as she sees them" journalist, Christie Blatchford, to back me up. Here's the second of two articles I promised in an earlier blog on the "over-reaction and emotion" to Jack Layton's death.

My point in all this is that we need to discern carefully between what most of the world praises and thinks is great, and what our gut feel says. Yes, Layton was a smart politician. He did wonders for a party that really has no chance in forming a government these days in Canada. It's great rise in the last election was due primarily to an anti-Liberal vote in Quebec, and nothing more.

Christians at least cannot get all excited about the death of a man who supported many things we stand against -- like abortion and homosexuality.   I wanted to draw this perspective to your attention, "Lest we forget."   I'd be happy to here your view.
