Sad times...

I am so frustrated with the times that we live in. I understand that what makes America beautiful is the opportunity to practice what religion you believe in, politics you agree with, and be of whatever sexual orientation you want. HOWEVER, with that said, who are these people to come into my HOUSE of GOD and tell me what I should allow them to do there! It's MY house, MY rules! Get your own house. Just as you ask me not to judge you, don't judge me! I don't agree with being gay, I don't agree that gays should MARRY in the eyes of GOD when they don't agree with any of the teachings of the church! Gays can have the same rights under civil union and should be happy with that. Don't try to change my rules because they don't work for you. This whole world is messed up enough without everyone trying to please everyone because it's popular. I had someone tell me recently "It's 2008, Jenn, get with it". No I will not get with it. I will not allow our public school system "mold" my children's brain with their way of thinking because it's popular and politically correct. If you are going to scream you are gay, I'm going to scream NOT IN MY HOUSE! Did anyone forget that Christmas is the celebration of the birth of JESUS? You know, GOD's son? I apologize that I don't know more about Hanukah - however, I DO know that it is a religious celebration. Well, now more than ever, it's not about God, Jesus, whoever's saviour... it is only about presents and money and now our economy. If everyone would just embrace our teachings and our CONSTITUTION and live it, it would be a better America. Do your thing but don't throw it in my face unless you want me to throw back.



Thanks, I feel a little better.

It is so refreshing to hear that people actually agree with me and see my point of view. Whenever I express my beliefs, I'm always told how "closed-minded" I am and that I don't allow other peoples view points to be heard. I must say that I always enjoy a good debate, however, I will not sway from my beliefs just as I don't expect anyone else to. I believe that what makes America great is that we can all practice our own teachings without being forced to do what other people want us to. However, it seems that our way of thinking is "unpopular" and voicing any such opinion is wrong. My problem is that unfortunately, because of "political correctness" or people being weak and bowing out that we are losing our civil liberties and granting changes in laws or basic constitutional rights to allow people to do whatever they want even if it goes against the basic foundations of that we built our country. If we continue on this path, the repercussions will be greater than what people realize. 10 years from now people are going to look back on the power that we have given the few and weak-minded and kick ourselves for allowing it. Anything that is done can certainly be undone, however, 10 years from now my children's thought process can be severely different from mine and I will have to work twice as hard not to let that happen. Our public school systems are allowing the union to run them, input thier ideas and personal beliefs. This is where the seperation of church and state needs to be upheld stronger now than before because not only are the teachers bad-mouthing Christianity, they are teaching more about other faiths and seem to be going in the direction that it doesn't matter. I wish I could afford to send my children to Catholic school where the union is not involved, however, not only is money an issue, but my husband was raised "anti-Catholic" and this is a serious sticking point. He says "we turned out ok and both went to public school". I believe it is my responsibility as a good mother to raise open-minded children so long as they have good morals and are responsible. I don't live for my children's social lives, I don't allow my children to watch all the garbage on the tv, I make sure my kids get outside and play and use thier imagination. I will not allow my daughter to come home pregnant and tell her it's OK, we'll get an abortion. I will not allow my children think it's ok to get someone pregnant or become pregnant before marriage. My son will treat women with respect and my daughter will respect herself. How I am going to do this? Not sure yet because the way things are going women are more of a sex object then ever before and rather than be happy with what God gave you or work hard to keep fit, hey, just buy those boobs or have the fat (or baby) sucked out of you because it's easier than being responsible. God bless us all!

It's nice to find like-minded, unbrainwashed people who can still think! All we can do is stick by our principles and raise our children to think, too.

I know how frustrating it is to see our country changing before our eyes. I would love to know how to "make it right" in the eyes of God....I don't know how to do that. I do know that God sees all things and he knew this was the path we (our country) would take. I think that it is important that we continue to teach our children the way God wants us to live. I'm not throwing in the towel on our country, but I think we need to instill what is true in our children so that when they are older they can stand up for what is right...even if it is no longer accepted...or "popular for the times we are living in". We answer to ONE and that is GOD. I do not agree with what our country is becoming. It is NOT OK to accept EVERYTHING that EVERYONE is feeling.....but it seems that is where we are going. No matter what, we will continue to serve OUR God. Keep your eyes on Him and BE BOLD.

Thank you for your words. I would like to add my own thoughts too. I do not agree with alot of things going on in this world and I would like to ponder a few things.
1. Our country was based on Godly principles and what happened to that? One thing seems to be the breakdown of the family. Divorces produce fatherless children. Look at all the crime. This is one of the most devastating realities of life in our time. Men and women don't see how this is hurting our country. I guess we don't want to admit we are a fallen world, we are humans that are SINFUL. OOOO that's such an ugly word(sarcasm). But true just the same. Some people would rather blame God than blame themselves. I blame humanity for being so self-oriented that we forget we were created, by a CREATOR.
2. Hmph, I agree with everything you said Jenn and I for one will continue to pray for our country, our government and Gods people. I pray for humans to see the error of their ways and return to God.
3. I am struggling with one major thing right now though, B Obama is taking us into one of the most damaging times in the Bible, it is going to get worse before it gets better. With Barak Obama and Oprah Winfrey leading the way, God knows they are false prophets, so hang in there and just know God Keeps His Promises. Moses led Gods people out of Egypt but it took along time to do it. Jesus died on the cross for me and my sins and I will forever cling tightly to HIM. Praise God!
