Choices

Seems we Christians are faced with an interesting choice when we go to the voting booth tomorrow.

Glass Houses

I guess someone at the Chicago Tribune has a problem with Donald Trump's professed Christian faith. In this, admittedly, he's not alone; in fact, I've wondered about it pretty much ever since he came onto the national scene as a candidate for the Presidency. But if you're going to point out Mr. Trump's flaws – or anyone's flaws, for that matter – in the realm of Christianity, one would do well to make sure they're not making their own grievous errors.

And yes, I'll call what this particular author did an 'error', since both Christians and non-Christians alike fall over this one on countless occasions.

Okay, What?

It's been quite a while since I last posted.  Life's been intruding on me.

Today, though, I went ahead and took a look at my stats for this page.  Needless to say, I got a surprise.


Looks like Russia's interested in what I'm writing ... or what I was writing, at least.

And what's up with the pageview spikes?

No idea.

But it looks as if I might have a bit more time to blog, so ...

Who's To Blame?

Welcome, once again, to the silly season, folks, when Americans try to decide who the next President is going to be.

With Donald Trump pulling the lion's share of the delegates so far (and even though he's not pulling 50%, he's still, individually, garnering more support than any other individual Republican candidate), I've been hearing and reading a lot of sentiments in the following vein:
It is the GOP establishment which is primarily responsible for the rise of Trump. It is their fault by pushing RINOs and moderates for so long, frustrating the wishes of real conservatives and real Republicans.
Consider, for a moment, the notion that we are a Constitutional, representative republic. This means we, the people, choose those men and women who will be our voices in our national government (as well as state and local governments).

If this is so, who is it, exactly, who has continually supported those very same RINOs in each and every election? That's right – we, the people.

You might say, well, nobody ever runs against our RINO during the primaries. Shall we blame the GOP establishment for that, or should we rather blame the conservatives and 'real Republicans' who shy away from challenging the incumbent? You might imagine, with the levels of discontent being voiced among conservatives and 'real Republicans', that there'd be a host of angry right hunters clamoring to take down a RINO, yet when the tickets are being given out for the safari, those folks are nowhere to be seen.

Why? Probably a host of reasons, the two biggest being lack of funding and lack of real support to face the RINO. Both of these can – and should – be addressed by the same people who are complaining about the RINO and demanding something be done about him (or her).

If it's the GOP establishment's fault for the rise of Trump, then it's the peoples' fault for continuing to elect, unchallenged, those very same RINOS.

Be the non-RINO candidate in your local elections. If that's not possible, support the non-RINO candidate in your local elections.

Remember, the government we get is the government we voted for.

The Mask is Off

During Superbowl 50, Doritos ran an ad that ripped the mask off the National Abortion Rights Action League – NARAL – and revealed to every one of their Twitter followers – and a lot of other people – the depths of their depravity.

Here's the ad:

 

Now, according to NARAL's Tweet:
#NotBuyingIt – that @Doritos ad using #antichoice tactic of humanizing fetuses and sexist tropes of dads and clueless & moms as uptight.
What kind of sickness must reside in the hearts and minds of the people of NARAL that they consider humanizing the unborn as something undesirable?

The same sickness that led to the Cambodian Killing Fields, the Holodomor, the African slave trade, current slave-trading, the gulags, the purges, and the destruction of Jews, Poles, Slavs, Gypsies, the handicapped, and others in Nazi Germany, and more.  That sickness understood that in order to make mass-slaughter of other human beings easier, those people had to be seen as not-people – as something less even than animals.  And each time, those people were re-named something other than 'people'.

'Like a cancer'.  A 'mistake'.  And 'unexpected pregnancy'.  A 'lump of tissue'.  A 'parasite on the woman's body'.  Those are some of the terms used by NARAL, Planned Parenthood, and the rest of the abortion movement to dehumanize the unborn.

And, of course, sonograms – like the one in the commercial – are garlic, holy water, and crucifixes to the vampires of the abortion lobby, since sonograms show in living, moving, black-and-white that that 'lump of tissue', that 'parasite', that 'cancer' looks and moves just like a person.

Because – horror of horrors – it is a person.

One thing that many people missed (but not Sister Toldja) is this:
NARAL’s tweet suggests their organization believes that a baby at nine months, that is this-close to being born, is not human.
This is the real horror: that NARAL, Planned Parenthood, and the abortion lobby freely and unabashedly practice methods that have led to the slaughter of countless human beings – born and unborn alike.
