There are two types of people: extremists, and moderates.
Both are necessary, both have been and will continue to be around, and they balance each other.
Sometimes, the extremists - who tend to "take it to the max" - are considered either avant-guard/cutting-edge liberal or ultra-fundamentalist/conservative....and frequently: fanatically or zealously so.
There are Biblical references to not merely the impetuous and impulsive, but also the traditions-adherant cautious. Case in point of the former:
2Kings 9:17 Now the watchman was standing on the tower in Jezreel, and he spied the company of Jehu as he came, and said, "I see a company." And Joram said, "Take a horseman, and send to meet them, and let him say, 'Is it peace?'"
2Ki 9:18 So a man on horseback went to meet him, and said, "Thus says the king, 'Is it peace?'" And Jehu said, "What have you to do with peace? Turn round and ride behind me." And the watchman reported, saying, "The messenger reached them, but he is not coming back."
19 Then he sent out a second horseman, who came to them, and said, "Thus the king has said, 'Is it peace?'" And Jehu answered, "What have you to do with peace? Turn round and ride behind me."
20 Again the watchman reported, "He reached them, but he is not coming back. And the driving is like the driving of Jehu the son of Nimshi; for he drives furiously."
21 Joram said, "Make ready." And they made ready his chariot. Then Joram king of Israel and Ahaziah king of Judah set out, each in his chariot, and went to meet Jehu, and met him at the property of Naboth the Jezreelite.
22 And when Joram saw Jehu, he said, "Is it peace, Jehu?" He answered, "What peace can there be, so long as the harlotries and the sorceries of your mother Jezebel are so many?"
23 Then Joram reined about and fled, saying to Ahaziah, "Treachery, O Ahaziah!"
24 And Jehu drew his bow with his full strength, and shot Joram between the shoulders, so that the arrow pierced his heart, and he sank in his chariot.
25 Jehu said to Bidkar his aide, "Take him up, and cast him on the plot of ground belonging to Naboth the Jezreelite; for remember, when you and I rode side by side behind Ahab his father, how the LORD uttered this oracle against him:
26 'As surely as I saw yesterday the blood of Naboth and the blood of his sons--says the LORD--I will requite you on this plot of ground.' Now therefore take him up and cast him on the plot of ground, in accordance with the word of the LORD."
27 When Ahaziah the king of Judah saw this, he fled in the direction of Bethhaggan. And Jehu pursued him, and said, "Shoot him also"; and they shot him in the chariot at the ascent of Gur, which is by Ibleam. And he fled to Megiddo, and died there.
30 When Jehu came to Jezreel, Jezebel heard of it; and she painted her eyes, and adorned her head, and looked out of the window.
31 And as Jehu entered the gate, she said, "Is it peace, you Zimri, murderer of your master?"
32 And he lifted up his face to the window, and said, "Who is on my side? Who?" Two or three eunuchs looked out at him.
33 He said, "Throw her down." So they threw her down; and some of her blood spattered on the wall and on the horses, and they trampled on her.
34 Then he went in and ate and drank; and he said, "See now to this cursed woman, and bury her; for she is a king's daughter."
35 But when they went to bury her, they found no more of her than the skull and the feet and the palms of her hands.
36 When they came back and told him, he said, "This is the word of the LORD, which he spoke by his servant Elijah the Tishbite, 'In the territory of Jezreel the dogs shall eat the flesh of Jezebel;
37 and the corpse of Jezebel shall be as dung upon the face of the field in the territory of Jezreel, so that no one can say, This is Jezebel.'"
It is typical of liberals (in the non-heretical sense) to exhibit and reflect the following characteristics:
Gen 35:2 So Jacob said to his household and to all who were with him, "Put away the foreign gods that are among you, and purify yourselves, and change your garments;
Num 14:24 But my servant Caleb, because he has a different spirit and has followed me fully, I will bring into the land into which he went, and his descendants shall possess it.
Ps 32:9 Be not like a horse or a mule, without understanding, which must be curbed with bit and bridle, else it will not keep with you.
Ps 33:3 Sing to him a new song, play skilfully on the strings, with loud shouts.
Ps 40:3 He put a new song in my mouth, a song of praise to our God. Many will see and fear, and put their trust in the LORD.
Ps 96:1 O sing to the LORD a new song; sing to the LORD, all the earth!
Ps 98:1 A Psalm. O sing to the LORD a new song, for he has done marvelous things! His right hand and his holy arm have gotten him victory.
Ps 144:9 I will sing a new song to thee, O God; upon a ten-stringed harp I will play to thee,
Ps 149:1 Praise the LORD! Sing to the LORD a new song, his praise in the assembly of the faithful!
Isa 42:10 Sing to the LORD a new song, his praise from the end of the earth! Let the sea roar and all that fills it, the coastlands and their inhabitants.
Zeph 3:9 "Yea, at that time I will change the speech of the peoples to a pure speech, that all of them may call on the name of the LORD and serve him with one accord.
Matt 9:17 Neither is new wine put into old wineskins; if it is, the skins burst, and the wine is spilled, and the skins are destroyed; but new wine is put into fresh wineskins, and so both are preserved."
Heb 7:12 For when there is a change in the priesthood, there is necessarily a change in the law as well.
Rev 5:9 and they sang a new song, saying, "Worthy art thou to take the scroll and to open its seals, for thou wast slain and by thy blood didst ransom men for God from every tribe and tongue and people and nation,
Re 14:3 and they sing a new song before the throne and before the four living creatures and before the elders. No one could learn that song except the hundred and forty-four thousand who had been redeemed from the earth.
Conversely, it is typical of ultra-fundamentalist conservatives to exhibit and reflect the following characteristics:
Ps 110:4 The LORD has sworn and will not change his mind, "You are a priest for ever after the order of Melchizedek."
Mal 3:6 "For I the LORD do not change; therefore you, O sons of Jacob, are not consumed.
Heb 7:21 Those who formerly became priests took their office without an oath, but this one was addressed with an oath, "The Lord has sworn and will not change his mind, 'Thou art a priest for ever.'"
James 1:17 Every good endowment and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change.
Sometimes, change is not possible, as is the case of a negro (whether a blackie or brownie or "afro-american") changing the dark color of his skin pigmentation:
Jer 13:23 Can the Ethiopian change his skin or the leopard his spots? Then also you can do good who are accustomed to do evil.
A LOOSE (questionably-pertinent) definition of avant-guarde "liberalism" (which should exclusively only mean: "different") is associated with nutcases and nutjobs bellering out aberrant heresy:
Job 11:12 But a stupid (evolutionist?) man will get understanding, when a wild ass's colt is born a man.
Ps 73:22 I was stupid and ignorant, I was like a beast toward thee.
Ps 92:6 The dull man cannot know, the stupid cannot understand this:
Pr 12:1 Whoever loves discipline loves knowledge, but he who hates reproof is stupid.
Pr 30:2 Surely I am too stupid to be a man. I have not the understanding of a man.
Jer 4:22 "For my people are foolish, they know me not; they are stupid children, they have no understanding. They are skilled in doing evil, but how to do good they know not."
Jer 10:21 For the shepherds are stupid, and do not inquire of the LORD; therefore they have not prospered, and all their flock is scattered.
Eze 16:34 So you were different from other women in your harlotries: none solicited you to play the harlot; and you gave hire, while no hire was given to you; therefore you were different.
Dan 7:19 "Then I desired to know the truth concerning the fourth beast, which was different from all the rest, exceedingly terrible, with its teeth of iron and claws of bronze; and which devoured and broke in pieces, and stamped the residue with its feet;
Da 7:23 "Thus he said: 'As for the fourth beast, there shall be a fourth kingdom on earth, which shall be different from all the kingdoms, and it shall devour the whole earth, and trample it down, and break it to pieces.
Da 7:24 As for the ten horns, out of this kingdom ten kings shall arise, and another shall arise after them; he shall be different from the former ones, and shall put down three kings.
Da 7:25 He shall speak words against the Most High, and shall wear out the saints of the Most High, and shall think to change the times and the law; and they shall be given into his hand for a time, two times, and half a time.
2Cor 11:4 For if some one comes and preaches another Jesus than the one we preached, or if you receive a different spirit from the one you received, or if you accept a different gospel from the one you accepted, you submit to it readily enough.
Gal 1:6 I am astonished that you are so quickly deserting him who called you in the grace of Christ and turning to a different gospel--
1Tim 1:3 As I urged you when I was going to Macedonia, remain at Ephesus that you may charge certain persons not to teach any different doctrine.....
So, those who practice moderation and prefer going along and maintaining the status quo are those who live and sometimes even advocate the expression: Don't Rock the Boat, Baby. Leave things as they are:
Deut 19:14 "In the inheritance which you will hold in the land that the LORD your God gives you to possess, you shall not remove your neighbor's landmark, which the men of old have set.
De 27:17 "'Cursed be he who removes his neighbor's landmark.' And all the people shall say, 'Amen.'
Prov 22:28 Remove not the ancient landmark which your fathers have set.
Pr 23:10 Do not remove an ancient landmark or enter the fields of the fatherless;
Hosea 5:10 The princes of Judah have become like those who remove the landmark; upon them I will pour out my wrath like water.
Luke 5:39 And no one after drinking old wine desires new; for he says, 'The old is good.'"
Recently in the news, the House has passed a pro-homopervert hate-"crimes" bill (promoting anti-Biblical godless tolerance of and mandatory acceptant love for homoperverts) which demoncrat-wind-sniffing-and-advised, pro-feminist/pro-abortion-choice-overreactive-women-in-charge (e.g. Pelosi, Napolitano, Sebelius, Clinton, et al) Obama seems eager to sign.
Adding insult to injury, some northeastern states of the United States, along with Iowa, have [purportedly] "legalized" or are [allegedly] "legalizing" same-gender/same-"sex" "marriage." The word allegedly, concerning such effeminate-sodomy homosexuality along with the oxymoronic cliche of [so-called] "gay" (i.e. homo-"gay") "rights," is used because there never has been, not now is, nor ever will be any "right" to commit ANY type of sin (whether that is homosexuality, stealing, lying, murder, adultery, slander, etc.) but merely a capacity to commit (not perform) such despicable depravity.
Even from an always-in-constant-flux wayward-human-or-otherwise "legal" definition, there is NO definitive absolute present-time nor historical "right" to engage in same-gender "civil" unions of a sexual nature, being that most states of the Union have never and do not now recognize nor allow same-gender erotic connections nor consider them legitimate. Even federal law (such as stated in IRS Form 1040 Instructions) defines "marriage" only as: "a legal union between a man and a woman," and thus those homoqueers who claim to be married to each other are liable to audit plus federal arrest and prosecution for fraud unless they term themselves "Single" for IRS exemption purposes. Moreover, at present, the California Supreme Court has upheld the anti-homosexual-"marriage" Proposition 8 which forbids same-gender marital unions.
But how can anyone prevent isolated and quaranteened, anti-socially lethal, same-gender sodomites from fatally screwing each other sexually? That is as impossible as preventing some suicidal hellfire-destined self-murderer from going off by themself into the woods and hanging themself from a tree or blowing their brains out with a gun.
What CAN and SHOULD be done, however, is to prevent homoperverts from convincing legislators and judges and police to force the concept of homosexuality as LEGALLY legitimate against those who view homosexuality as lewdity. Sensible and rational heterosexuality-only citizens neither want nor should have the force of homogay-defiling legislative and judicial law imposing homoperversion down everyone's interdependent-society throats and shoved into their non-soliciting faces.
Apart from that, let it be, and "don't rock the boat, baby:"
Matt 15:14 Let them alone; they are blind guides. And if a blind man leads a blind man, both will fall into a pit."
Acts 5:38 So in the present case I tell you, keep away from these men and let them alone; for if this plan or this undertaking is of men, it will fail;
Rom 1:27 and the men likewise gave up natural relations with women and were consumed with passion for one another, men committing shameless acts with men and receiving in their own persons the due penalty for their error (thankully exterminating themselves with AIDS?).
1Cor 5:5 you are to deliver this man to Satan for the destruction of the flesh, that his spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus.
1Tim 1:20 ......whom I have delivered to Satan that they may learn not to blaspheme.
Rev 22:11 Let the evildoer still do evil, and the filthy still be filthy, and the righteous still do right, and the holy still be holy."
The latest craze is Twitter. Such a silly-sounding entity is (from what I meagerly understand about it) a text-only mass-mailing e-mail service originating from San Francisco and public available to all. Used by pro-feminist McCain in his vain and palin' attempt to win the presidency.
What it reminds me of is a group of chattering birds, imposing their God-given and instinctual early-morning noise-making chorus of chirps and tweets, rousing restless light sleepers who are rudely and impolitely awakened, resulting in the disturbed and irritated trotting to the bathroom, tearing off some toilet tissue, moistening it, plugging that into their ears, then in blessed and blissful (though deliberately-deaf and thus security-breach dangerous) silence, doze off to sleep.
I gather that Twitter texting (e-mailing) can be selectively sent to and received by certain people at whoever's discretion and choice....unlike across-the-board-against-everyone "legally"-imposed homosexual and abortion-homicide legislative and judicial rulings. That of course is different than the Creator's noisy early-morning feathered chirpers and tweeters incessantly and repeatedly engaging in their neighborhood sound bytes without fail until the sun has risen....to, for, and against the general public, whether those of the general public like it or hate it - regardless. Such a lamentable situation is similar to terroristic gals during seasonably warm days pseudo-"legally" flaunting their mopheaded, bare-armed, nude-legged, and/or socksless partial nakedness by immodest clothing to everyone and anyone who happens to accidently see them as they roam around indiscriminately as lust-inciting, porn-promoting, prostitution-encouraging, noxious and lurid objects of sexual harassment and public nuisance.
As nauseatingly bad and obnoxiously evil are the arrogantly-belligerant non-cutesy voice noises of the presume-that-they-can-do-as-well-as men/compete-against-males, jaw-flapping female anchors and reporters on CNN and FOX incessantly blattering and chattering away, nonrestrained by sexist TV directors and producers along with similarly-sexist FCC and EOC bureaucrats.
Taking out the shotgun and blasting away at the noise-making early-morning birds would be even worse noise pollution for light-sleeper neighbors. Can't always fight fire with fire, especially when gasoline is used to attempt to douse the flames.
God, the creator of chirping tweeting birds, is not to blame and not at fault. How could He be, when He created the Tempting Serpent, the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil, freewill choice, and a Divine-Redeemer Savior to compensate for the inevitable utilization of those perplexingly-necessary stumbling blocks of The Garden? Moreover, we could relocate to the Arctic. Or live underwater. Distant moons and planets are available. Besides, that is what toilet paper is for. Praise Jesus for toilet tissue and myriad applications thereof, or whatever other earplugs one can insert - driving the earwax deeper into the ear canal and increasing air pressure on the eardrums.
