Missy Stewart, Author
Missy Stewart has a Bachelor of Science in Theatre, Television and Film from Oral Roberts University, a conservative Christian college located in Tulsa, Oklahoma and recently named “Best Colleges 2010″ by U.S. News & World Report. She had the extraordinary experience of studying Arts and Humanities on-site in Reagan-era Western and Eastern Europe, including East Berlin, during the Cold War and before the collapse of the Berlin Wall. It was while sharing the gospel of Christ in an underground church in East Berlin that Missy had an epiphany of her American freedom echoed by then President Ronald Reagan:
“Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend out sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.”
Like Socrates, one of the greatest philosophers and educators of antiquity, Missy believes in the existence of absolute truth. Socrates thought that morality and virtue were some of the greatest accomplishments of man, because without morality, based on absolute truth, one would be unable to reason. Seeing this in operation in today’s post-modern society, where there is no “right” and there is no “wrong”, Missy believes that Governor Sarah Palin has the right and timely message of how, in the absence of absolutes, Americans can still make logical decisions for lower taxes, energy independence, and a culture of life.
