My Rule for Life

I would rather live my life as if there is a God, and die to find out there isn't, than live my life as if there isn't, and die to find out there is.

There is Hope

With the President's first year under his belt so to speak and everyone but his brother doing a "Year in Review" I am not going  down that path.  It has been all too easy to stay on the "criticize Obama band wagon" and I admit I did jump on board, sometimes with both feet!  The name of this blog is CONSERVATIVE OUTRAGE, not bash President Obama.  I will attempt this year to keep that in mind with a more Conservative slant or views.  There are many more issues out there to be reported on and discussed.  So, if I get off the mark once in a while forgive me however, if I stay off the mark for too long bring me back home (my name is in the back of my shirt collar). That's a joke for those of you in Loma Linda. This is CONSERVATIVE OUTRAGE and it's here for you to voice  and discuss your opinions.

Thank you for your support.


There is Hope, Too Long on the Back Burner


One of the biggest issues in the recent health care debate has been Abortion.  There is perhaps no issue in America that will divide our populace more than Abortion.  There are the two camps that get the most coverage of this issue.  One is it a woman's right to have an abortion and she is the only one to decide because it is her body.  The other camp is only when the health of the mother is at stake.  There is a third and not so well covered I believe.  It is the hard core Abortion at no time.  This camp places the life of the child and the mother in the hands of G-d. Not, a surgeon, not the mother, but in the hands of the Almighty Creator of all the universe.  I am relatively sure most of my followers fall in the third category, then I may be wrong.  Regardless of which category your opinion may fit a Marist survey* shows the generation I am defined with was and remains to be a generation of rebellion that went too far.

Only 50% of my generation is Pro Life.  Sadly that is the lowest percentage of the four generations surveyed. Of our youngest generation, those 18 to 29, 59% believe abortion is morally wrong.  Correct me if I am wrong but isn't this the generation that has been called the "me" generation.  Isn't this the generation that has their "pants on the ground and their hat on sideways".  


I'll be the first to admit I sometimes shake my head when I see the youth of today strolling the mall or walking in front of me on the sidewalk.  I better remember what my daddy used to say to me, "You can't judge a book by its cover boy.  You gotta open it up and read what's inside."  I really hate it when he is right.  It's a father son thing.  Guess I better do what my daddy told me and read a book or talk to a young person.  How about you?  Need to read a book or.........

Here is a shocker for you. I believe in a woman's right to choose. Why? Because G_d gave all of us "Free Will" to choose right or wrong, but if we make the wrong choice, there is a price to be paid.

I am against the government "legalizing" murder, just as much as I am against the government legalizing sodomy, but each individual has the "Free Will" right to make their choice but they should not demand that no punishments be handed down on them for committing acts against nature or the taking of innocent human lives.

I must admit I was a little surprised by MRG'S comment however you always look deeper into an issue and from a different perspective. Based on you comment I would agree to a point in the freedom of choice. Allow me to take it one step further. How are we to look upon the life that was taken?

MM,

Yes, I guess you could. I sometimes think I will never be as smart as my daddy. Sort of that "old time religion" thing. I do believe they were the greatest generation since the beginning of this county.

Lutheran Pastor Dietrich Bonhoeffer

Destruction of the embryo in the mother's womb is a violation of the right to live which God has bestowed upon this nascent life. To raise the question whether we are here concerned already with a human being or not is merely to confuse the issue. The simple fact is that God certainly intended to create a human being and that this nascent human being has been deliberately deprived of his life. And that is nothing but murder.
