Today I wear black

Today I wear black.

We are the nation of:

  1. legalized and state-funded contraception
  2. legalized and state-funded embryo destruction
  3. legalized and homosexual “marriage”
  4. legalized no-fault divorce
  5. mandatory income redistribution (to fund the items above in large part)
  6. and our elected president is a man who fought for legislation stating that babies that survive botched abortion should be killed by a doctor

This is what the United States has become. I mourn.

When I finish mourning I will do everything that I can do to reverse these evils in our land.

If God’s wrath comes, we can only blame ourselves. We voted for it.

    Today I wear a smile because the man I voted for was elected President. This is one of the greatest days in the history of the US.

    Ok, I agree with most of your statments..But tell me would a vote for the “other guy” Mr McCain have changed anything…. and what was his stance on all of the above? – it was a two man race…. and was the conservative Catholic ever going to get what he wanted from either!. I think not. The thing is, Christians are taught to be not of this world, we are better placed to work within and for the Church. I come from Northern Ireland, a place which has learned that politics and religion should NEVER mix! or else you end up with a breading ground for extremists… Pro life, and Pro death penalty !! – the lunacy continues!!!!

    Weren’t all of those things true yesterday too? Why weren’t you wearing black then?

    And by the way, number 5 isn’t true. The vast, vast majority of government spending at any level goes for things other than abortion, contraception, and homosexual marriage.

    I will not give up hope because my guy didn’t get elected. I will not wear black either. What counts is not the prince in the White House, but a revitalization of Christianity . . . person by person, or brick by brick if we think of ourselves as part of a great Church. The Lord works in mysterious ways.

    Fast and pray for the conversion of sinners.

    Let the whole world wear black on January 20, 2009! Wear a black pin or anything black on your clothing. The last election was not about just the economy, the war in Iraq and Afghanistan, Republican vs Democrats, gay marriage… It is about the right to life. All other rights, natural or “hallucinated” by pro abortion or gay marriage advocates, starts with a living human body. And the guy that became the next president vowed to kill the innocent and most defenseless as his first act as president. How different will he be from the likes of Adolf Hitler and Joseph Stalin? These two guys wear a smile after seeing the mass murders they committed in the name of change. Obama supports are wearing that same smile, too.

    Sadly, very little of your list would have been different if McCain had been elected, just number 6, I think. I’ll be wearing black on the 4th of July.

    Amen. We will pray for the president-elect, that he may repent in great sorrow for the pagan child sacrifice which he has supported.

    Ezekiel 12:20-21 (among others) seems informative here (God speaking to Israel and Judah through the prophet):

    “And you took your sons and daughters whom you bore to me and sacrificed them as food to the idols” [e.g., perhaps of career, convenience, education, material wealth and the vain hope of prolonged youth through medical therapies... to name just a few modern idols] “Was your prostitution not enough? You slaughtered my children and sacrificed them to idols.”

    What happened to them next wasn’t pretty…

    Romans 13

    “Everyone must submit himself to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God. Consequently, he who rebels against the authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, and those who do so will bring judgment on themselves. ”

    The chapter goes on to say…
    “This is also why you pay taxes, for the authorities are God’s servants, who give their full time to governing. Give everyone what you owe him: If you owe taxes, pay taxes; if revenue, then revenue; if respect, then respect; if honor, then honor.”

    Ashley,
    Your scripture verses refer to those who rebel against authorities–as in breaking the law, and revolution. They do not refer to the faithful who speak against injustices and wrongs committed by the current administration. We have a duty to speak the truth and condemn evil.

  15. Ashley on November 10th, 2008 7:53 am

    Wearing black to speak out against the authority does in fact represent rebellion, Christine.

  16. Ashley on November 10th, 2008 7:54 am

    As the verse clearly states, there is no man in authority that has not been placed there but by God himself.

    Oh shut it…you live in America where we have freedom…people can love who they want when they want and how they want…there are scientific studies that show people who are gay/lesbian are born that way, it is not because of choice, it is how GOD created them…and pro choice all the way, its not your business why someone wants to get an abortion so stay out of it…and Rommel Lopez how can you even compare obama to hitler or stalin, thats just crazy talk. you should be ashamed…and if you all hate it so much then go move to another country because your remarks are not wanted and its about time there is some positive change coming to this country… OBAMA <3333

    Yeah, It will be fine to wear black.
