Right-wing tilt explained by the Bible
Some Republicans at their Texas convention and nationwide are claiming a biblical sanction for their right-wing stance. Ecclesiastes: 10:2, “The heart of the wise inclines to the right and a fool’s is toward the left.” Many interpret this just to mean a wise man’s mind brings him good luck, a fool’s brings him bad luck. I don’t think the “left” and the “right” were ever used biblically as a political metaphor. But it is a clever exegesis (interpretation) when applied as they are in our time. I doubt if many theologians would agree with these Republicans.
