Are the Dems anti-family?

Why do some accuse the liberal/progressive wing of the Democratic Party as being anti-family?

Three quick things come to mind....their usual stances on abortion, welfare and traditional marriage.

Simply put, current abortion law allows a mother to choose to deny her own unborn child the right to his/her own life.  Ironicly, why is it that if a pregnant woman is the victim of a murderous crime where she loses the unborn child, the perpetrator can be charged with a felony?  I guess it all depends on the value we put on that life.  It depends on the circumstances.  But should it be that way?     

As far as government welfare, many believe it gives men the opportunity, and an excuse to abandon their responsibilities of fatherhood.  Why should they take responsibility if the taxpayers are providing for their children?  It obviously helps the mothers who choose to have their babies, but knowing this government help is provided gives the fathers an easy out and destroys the family unit that each child deserves. 

The link below is an interesting article that will go into the reasons why the homosexual agenda is trying to chip away at the core of civilized society as we've known it for thousands of years, the basic foundation and understanding of what the family unit is supposed to be. 

How have we become duped into believing all of the above is okay?  They will come up with all their usual rationalizations, but down deep we all must know it's taking it's toll on society and the human condition.  They say they're the forward looking progressives and the old ways are ancient history, but many times new ways of thinking on morality aren't always right.  Oh, they'll try to convice you they're right, and then they'll even accuse you of being intolerant and uncompassionate if you don't agree with them.  Don't be intimidated into not speaking out for what you believe is right.

This is one Muslim who was a former jihadist, who has the right idea! We need more like him speaking out. He's courageously written an open letter to Osama Bin Laden.

This Muslim would be better received by skeptical Americans instead of the Imam in New York who wants to build the mosque near Ground Zero, and who's also getting paid by our State Dept. to be a "bridge" of understanding between the U.S. and Muslim countries. He needs to speak the truth, like this fellow Muslim.

It's been a crazy, busy spring and summer for me.  I really want to get back into the swing of things with this blog and give it another good ole college try, as they say.

The main message with the readings at church today were about money, selfishness and gaining dishonest wealth. 

Also, just like we tell our little children that Santa is watching them....well, so is Jesus watching all of us too!

Instead of typing out all of the readings, I will just list them and select a line or two as a highlight....

Amos 8:4-7   The Lord has sworn by the pride of Jacob: Never will I forget a thing they have done!

1 Timothy 2:1-8  It is my wish, then, that in every place the men should pray, lifting up holy hands, without anger or argument.

Luke 16:1-13  If therefore, you are not trustworthy with dishonest wealth, who will trust you with true wealth?  No servant can serve two masters.
Seen on one of our local church's signs....The path of least resistance is usually crooked.
