Well, for every time that I vow not to read the news, I break my promise and guess what?
Yup, I read the news. And guess what [again]?
As hard as I try to remain composed and detached from the realities of this “upside down” world, I tend to get a little “worked up” or…
to be more specific…
I get angry.
Let me put it to you this way:
Thank God that I am not God or I would have destroyed the world (as we know it) a long time ago…
Mmmm… a little emotional am I?
Let me explain:
Amidst all the political nonsense, the following headline appears on World Net Daily:
Kids attend prom from 'sexual hell'Okay, since I am a mom of a “tween” I naturally read further into this June 12 article by Chelsea Schilling:
You won't believe how children as young as 12 years old partied
“Note: This story contains material that readers might consider graphic and offensive.
Family advocates are outraged by a prom held at Boston City Hall that was open to children apparently as young as 12 featuring cross dressers, homosexual heavy petting, suspected drug use and a leather-clad doorman who teaches sexual bondage classes.
Children from middle schools and high schools across Massachusetts on May 9 attended a Youth Pride Day event ending with a prom inside of Boston City Hall sponsored by the Boston Alliance of Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender Youth, Or BAGLY, a group seated on the Massachusetts Commission for GLBT Youth.
Boston Mayor Thomas Menino issued a proclamation welcoming homosexual and transgender youth to the celebration. A man in drag introduced a homosexual activist from Menino's office to read the letter. A video of that proclamation is below….” Read more.
Now I take a break to vomit.
I no longer recognize society any more. Who are we? I get it now more than ever that perhaps Obama is right: America really is no longer a Christian nation…
America is on a rapid downward spiral and evil is winning out especially within our youth. I personally make no apology for sounding off like a “fanatical, right wing extremist.” As I’ve often said, our God is the same God of yesterday, today and tomorrow but it is man who keeps reinventing God.
For those of us who profess to be Christ followers, the time is now to stand together in solidarity and, under the guidance of the Holy Spirit, we must pray and then act. I now understand the urgency that burned deeply within the spirit of John the Baptist to prepare everyone for the coming of the Lord:
In Luke 3:3-4, we are told, "And he came into all the country about Jordan, preaching the baptism of repentance for the remission of sins; As it is written in the book of the words of Esaias the prophet, saying, The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths straight." Also in Matthew 3:1-3, "In those days came John the Baptist, preaching in the wilderness of Judaea, And saying, Repent ye: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand."
As a Catholic/Christian, my spirit cries out to all of America: “Repent and believe the Good News” (Mark 1:15).
To understand the signs of the times means to accept the urgency of penance, conversion and of faith. For believers, we know that God will triumph. We also know, through faith, that hearts open to God and purified by His contemplation is stronger than guns, weapons and the US government.
As we see and experience continually, the evil one clearly has power in this world; he has power, however, because our freedom continually lets itself be led away from God. But since God Himself took a human heart and has thus steered human freedom towards what is good, the freedom to choose evil no longer has the last word. From that time forth, the word that prevails is this:
“In the world you will have tribulation, but take heart; I have overcome the world” (John 16:33).
May God help us all -- especially our children.
