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.

This is a bad thing?


Here’s a paragraph from McClatchy.com,  March 25,2013:

HUNGER STRIKER COULD DIE

Although it’s camp policy to prevent a captive from starving himself, the prison staff talks about the possibility that a hunger-striking captive will be found dead one day.

OK, so….so sorry about your luck, you’re the one who tried to kill American soldiers and got caught. Now you’re in a cushy prison at Guantanamo Bay getting 3 squares a day and you don’t want to eat the food. So F’ING starve, you moron!

There is only one thing more ridiculous than this. Here’s another paragraph:

By this weekend, the U.S. military had defined 26 of the 166 captives as hunger strikers. Eight were being fed nutritional shakes through a tube snaked through a shackled captive’s nose to his stomach. Two were hospitalized, getting nutrition through a tube and intravenous hydration as well.

Good golly, this Administration and the Congress has the country in Seeequessstooor, VP Biden has to give up his weekly flights home, Democrat Representative, Deb, the Dingbat, Wasshername, says congressional staffers can’t afford to buy lunch, and there is blasphemes talk of shutting down the Congressional ($5 million debt) barber shop and we’re force feeding morons who tried to kill American soldiers. These guys want to die and get their 40 virgins (not necessarily women) so let them FREAKING DIE!!!! Save the taxpayers $$$ so POTUS and Mechelle, my bell, can go on another vacation!!!

I’m only briefly going into the same sex marriage debate for two reasons. First, while grocery shopping yesterday I saw a young male and female couple wearing T-shirts that had printed on them, “FUC_ DOMA”. My first inclination was to walk up and say something such as, your T-shirt language is offensive to me.Then I thought, no; just go tell them they are morons with no class (which would have been true, IMHO). Admittedly I thought of trying to tear the shirts off, however that would have landed me in jail. I don’t look good in stripes. So I just ignored them. By not expressing my feelings, which I believe is what they wanted, attention, I defeated their purpose.

Secondly, with SCOTUS, approving OBAMACARE, the approval ruling on same sex marriage, which is an oxymoron, is a slam dunk! Same sex marriage is like Judeo-Christian, it’s either one or the other. Frankly I don’t have a problem with two people of the same sex living together. Never thought you would hear that here, did you? Homosexually is the sin and Christians are taught to hate the sin and forgive the sinner. Homosexuals all ready have a "civil union" IMHO they don't want to be different.....but they are! For what ever the reason.  They just want to belong and be the same....which they aren't.  Sorry about your luck too!

My problem becomes changing the meaning of words or substituting words for words that are softer. In the 60’s homosexual meant two people of the same sex having a relationship of any kind. Today the word is “gay” which in the 60’s meant happy. We have changed the wording of execution to lethal injection. Dead is dead, the means or wording to the victim is totally irrelevant.

This reality came to mind as Pastor was reading from his Bible in church yesterday. I was reading along on my Kindle Fire Bible and the words were not quite the same. Actually some words were omitted where other words were substituted. Was the meaning the same? To me, I suppose so; because in my brain I automatically substituted the word or words I grew up with and subconsciously learned many years ago. I just wonder why we have to substitute words. Change for the sake of change I guess.

But, in my mind there will never be a same-sex marriage or a Judeo-Christian. You can’t have it both ways. Make a decision and stick with it. You’ll be thought a better person if you do.

Pops, America has its priorities all screwed up, and thanks to the brainwashing going on in our public schools, our children today, as well as their parents are totally ignorant when it comes to the Constitution. Look how many people believe that just because the US Supreme Court declares something to be Constitutional, that makes it so. B.S.! There are so many laws that the Supreme Court has upheld that ARE UNCONSTITUTIONAL.

Now we polls stating that the majority of Americans now support same-sex marriage, but nobody mentions that the reason why is because our schools, mass media, entertainment media have brainwashed the population into accepting homosexuality as something to be respected and upheld. When it comes to the death penalty, I have heard a lot of so-called Christians say they are against it because it is anti-christian. Where in Holy Scripture is the death penalty condemned? As a matter of fact, does it not say in Deuteronomy that murders, rapists and kidnappers should be put to death because by so doing there will be less of these crimes in the land, and it should be done quickly?

It is my firm belief that the decent people have allowed the liberal cancer to spread and take hold to the point that we will NEVER be able to regain control. America IS finished.

MRG,

As always, thanks for stopping by and commenting. We are lock-step in all but one minor issue. I DO believe we can come back. It will not be the America you and I cling to but a stronger and more moral America. My feeling is that G-d will prevail as He always has. We have just not come far enough down the road yet. "Lord, if there are are but one person in this village will you spare it" We still have a lot of good G-d fearing people in the village.

Happy Easter and prayers for you and the family.

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.
