already have perceived ideas and prejudices. There the Limbaugh ditto heads, the O'Reilly junkies who love hearing what they already believe. How do you reach out to someone who is so insecure, so afraid--the "me, mine" crowd--they care for no one else. There is no empathy, and sometimes I believe, no conscience. They follow only certain parts of the Bible that concurs with their preconceived notions--those parts that validate what they already believe as truth. How do you reason with them? You don't. They will not listen to anything that does not validate their held beliefs.
