“My heart is breaking as I write this today. Part of me wishes I didn’t have to write, and of course, I don’t “have to” … but I feel compelled to. This is a long article, but if you are Christian, (or even if you are not) and you watched any of the Women’s March in D.C. yesterday, I hope you will give at least as much time to read the view from the other side.
I suppose one could title this post “Who is on the Lord’s side”? For as I listened yesterday, I had tears in my eyes and while I’m confident that many of the activist’s hearts are in the right place, I discerned that they are clearly duped … and by their actions show that in reality they clearly are NOT on The Lord’s side. And by now in this article, you are already either with me or against me. I beg your indulgence.
The marches were held (ostensibly) to send a message to Trump. Before I go any further, this article is not, I repeat, NOT* an effort to support nor stand against Trump. It is an article about how multitudes of people are headed toward a very bad end. The true and living God is a God of choice. He NEVER* FORCES us to stand with him. It is a matter of free will.
As I watched I was reminded, even struck in my soul by the words God spoke to Moses so many thousands of years ago.
… and so, below are my comments about The D.C. Women’s March on 1.21.17
How ironic that one of the women who delivered the speech that is now being celebrated across the globe is named after America. America Ferrara shows her heart and she also exposes her ignorance of the true facts as to why Trump was elected. And for the record (and I am at a loss as to why the media is not reporting this) Trump did not lose the popular vote. He lost the [liberal] coastal states with huge populations. He lost California and New York. But the MIDDLE of the country, the masses in between absolutely and without a shadow of a doubt wanted change.
America Ferrara’s words “a platform of hate and division assumed power yesterday.” But, the President is not America. His cabinet is not America. Congress is not America.
“We” are America and “we” are here to stay. Excuse me Ms. “America” but the multitudes of AMERICANS who voted for The Republic to remain intact are not filled with hate. Most of them are honest Americans who want their beloved country back. They want to be able to go out to work every day, come home to a house they own and they want to be able to worship a God they love. In many cases that may be The God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, but that could also be any other God whom they choose to serve. So don’t lump me (or others who voted anti-Hillary) in as crazy Christians who are trying to put everyone in the same God-fearing box.
The point is we want to live in a free secure land, be free to worship as we choose, and feel safe to raise our families in an AMERICAN culture. This is AMERICA, not some other country. How dare you say that “his” cabinet is not America! That the Congress is not America. Go and check your history book and find out what is America and how The constitution was formed. It is a government “by the people, for the people”. It is unique in its creation and the jewel of the world. Is it perfect .. no, nothing short of Heaven is, but it is the best man has done so far.
Do you not understand that America was (is) truly in danger of dying? This nation needs to turn back to God. How ironic it is that you are concerned about the “soul of America”. You should be concerned about America’s and the people of America’s souls, but without God’s spirit, myself, you, (and people like you) are unable to see that and are easily deceived. This nation needs to stop having a hissy fit and see that a nation without honor and without morals is doomed to self-destruct. You may be “here to stay” but the America established by our founding fathers is not going to go away … and those of us who voted to keep America … America … will NOT be worried about your impotent words mouthed on a platform supported by self-indulgence and ignorance. The problem with most activists is that they are unaware of the wolf at the door and about the danger, they are in or could soon be in. Do you honestly think this is about taking birth control or “women’s rights away”? Do you have such a lack of knowledge about what really is at stake that you make abortion rights, gay rights and immigration rights the central plank of your platform? Have you no idea of what is going on outside the borders (and in some places inside our borders) of this great land? Excuse me again Ms. Ferrara, but it seems to me that America has been pretty darn good to you, and for a person “under attack” you have fared pretty well. It is commendable that you want everyone to “have a chance” for that is truly American but learn the facts before you start sowing division.
I absolutely agree with many of the words of Brigitte Gabriel (below). Why in Heaven’s name would Brigitte Gabriel travel the globe and put herself in mortal danger unless she had a true story to tell. She shares her story about how she lived in “the paradise of the mid-east” until, because of political correctness, the walls literally came tumbling down and their beautiful way of life was destroyed by radical Islam.
Below are some of Brigitte’s words: They were taken from her video (before the election) as to why Muslims won’t assimilate into western culture.
“Our national security is at at stake. Hillary values “political correctness”. Trump values national security. Hillary wants open borders – Trump wants STRONG borders. Hillary wants to flood our nation with massive UN-VETTED Islamic refugees. Trump puts American security first by opposing such dangerous policies.
Brigitte has tirelessly worked for over 10 years to warn America about the dangers of Islam. She knows FIRST HAND what it is like to at the expense of national security choose political correctness.
NOTHNG could be more anti-woman than importing a culture that oppresses and endangers women. When it comes to women’s rights there is a stark difference between Western and Islamic culture when it comes to women’s rights. Hillary wanted to follow the lead of Angela Merkel who almost single-handedly transformed Europe in Eurabia. This would endanger America in ways we have never seen. Sweden is now known as the rape capital of the world because of its position on immigration.
Europe is a preview of what could come to America. Why would Hillary want to import a culture that believes women are the property of men? Women can be beaten, raped, abused and divorced without any rights for custody. Nothing could be more anti-woman than to allow such uncivilized backward men to our unsuspecting American communities courtesy of YOU the taxpayer! And gays? In the mid-east they are thrown from the rooftops for their lifestyle choice. What makes you think once America is no longer “America” years from now gays would not suffer the same fate? Learn the facts.
Isis brags that they have embedded 4,000 terrorists in the refugee population, and we are going to let our government bring them here and gamble with the lives of our family. Did you know that Mass, Idaho, Utah, N.Dakota, Virginia, California now report sexual assault by refugees?
… and so … I want to, along with my friend Brigitte say to you, my dear readers, “The election was not about the election of “a person” it was about survival. Survival of America’s way of life, and the survival of a God honoring society.
As for bringing refugees or immigrants into America. I believe I can speak for every Christian when I say that we don’t want anyone to suffer or die. We wish we could take everyone. Do you honestly think that Christians or any God fearing human beings are “filled with hate?” We are absolutely for opening our borders, but it is not wise, in the age we live in, to mindlessly leave the front door unlocked when there could be danger outside. It is crucial, now more than ever to understand the background of those whom we open our doors to. Most ancient civilizations had walls for protection.
It seems to me that most times I hear the liberal “activists” and the hollywood types speak, there is hate spewing from their mouths.
Christians do not hate homosexuals, but we do love God’s word and we to the best of our ability follow his commands. God ordained marriage between a man and a woman. Period! If anyone chooses to live outside those conditions, we do not have to agree with them to be able to love them.
Christians are commanded not to murder. The killing of an unborn baby is murder. Period.
So today I am sad to see so many people all over the globe “choosing up their side”, for it appears that the side they are choosing is not in line with God’s word. If they are ignorant of God’s words, that is one thing, but God help the one who knows what God says on a particular issue and chooses to do what is right in his/her own eyes.
No, Ms.Ferrara, YOU and YOURS are about to realize that YOU and YOURS have mistaken meekness for weakness. Jesus Christ was the most meek yet powerful man on the earth. And he taught his children to be just like him. Further we have already won the battle of love vs. hate. It was won 2000 years ago when Christ was crucified. You are correct in saying that “you are under attack” but your battle is NOT against “the right”. Your battle is against the spiritual forces of evil in The Heavenly Realms. Look it up. Google that phrase and open your eyes and mind. YOU could be in danger of not being on the Lord’s side. You’ve been enlightened. So I pray you can stop YOUR hatred.
You say your freedom is on the chopping block? Freedom to do what? To kill innocent babies? To marry outside of God’s holy ordinances? To empty your minds of common sense as regards national and personal safety?
YOU also say YOU believe in decency. Whaaat? Decency to do what? To kill innocent babies? To marry outside of God’s holy ordinances? To empty your minds of common sense as regards national and personal safety? To stand on grand stages and shout expletives and exhibit lewd behavior all across the globe?
Yes, you are FREE to do all these things … but make sure you are not just in a big tent but “in the right tent” …. do some homework and take the really long view because the road here on earth is short … and the roads can take many twists and turns … some roads do not lead to a good place.
Every single God fearing person alive wants what you want. Liberty and equality. But the difference is that we want it as God told us we should have it. The values we hold dear are spelled out within the pages of The Bible, and The Torah. There are other religions that spell out similar values. They may not bePlieve in the same God but they hold high GODLY moral values dear. There were 9 religions represented at The Prayer service Saturday. While you were all out clamoring for your rights, your time might have been better served on your knees asking God to direct your paths and bless your lives.
You are a bit confused I think about the role of government. Government’s role is NOT to uphold our values. The basic functions of the United States government are listed in the Constitution. They are: ‘To form a more perfect Union’; ‘To establish Justice’; ‘To insure domestic Tranquility’; ‘To provide for the common defense’; ‘To promote the general Welfare’; and ‘To secure the Blessings of Liberty.’ You may say … “well then what we want falls under the “blessings of liberty”. Again, that would show your ignorance of God’s word and his Holy ordinances because he does not and never will bless sin nor sinful lifestyles. So our job is to find out what God considers sin. Period.
Do you want to “save the soul” of America …. the walk of salvation begins in your own heart and from there you “might” with God’s help have a chance to make a real difference.
Ms.Madonna’s ridiculous diatribe doesn’t even deserve comment except that I some grave concerns about her comment “I have thought an awful lot of blowing up the White House”. elephantOh really Ms.Madonna, I wonder what the secret service and the CIA have to say about that.
… and as far as their claims to “love” go .. it looks more like hate to me ….
So in conclusion: This is NOT about bringing America back to the 1950s … We are not xenophobes. That would be against everything we believe in. And no intelligent person wants to see “back-room abortions” make a come back. No .. but it is about bringing America back to being a true God fearing nation once again. I’m afraid that our dear country has taken a very wrong and long detour and that it has corrupted itself. The people “in between” the coasts, (you know the ones clinging to their guns, bibles and religion) are the heart and soul of America and have been crying out to God for a long time. We believe God heard us. We believe that God has given us another chance … and so
I will begin as I started: Then the Lord said to Moses, “Go down, because your people, whom you brought up out of Egypt, have become corrupt. Exodus 32:7.
What side are you on … or rather “whose” side are you on? Yours, or The Lords?
SUPPORTIVE VIDEOS and INFORMATION:
At the time I was home preparing Saturday dinner and half listening/watching what was taking place in D.C. and various places. Some estimates had the crowed and about 1/2 million, so I thought I might take a listen …
The first one I heard speak was America Ferrara:
Ferrera started her speech:
My name is America Ferrera and I am deeply honored to march with you today as the chair of the artist’s table, as a woman and a first-generation American born to Honduran immigrants. It has been a heart-breaking time to be both a woman and immigrant this country. Our dignity, our character, our rights have all been under attack and
a platform of hate and division assumed power yesterday. But,
the President is not America.
His cabinet is not America. Congress is not America.We are America .. and we are here to stay.
Then the news media commented: “This speech needs to be seen by every single American. Liberals, we have a battle ahead of us like nothing many of us have ever had to fight. The right is going to try to drive a wedge into our party. They call us “snowflakes” because we are delicate and melt at the first challenge. They are about to realize that they have mistaken kindness for weakness. We are unique, not weak. And we will put the strength of our united front against their hate. We must not allow the rift on the left, between the ideological and the pragmatic, to destroy our ability to stop this hatred. We must not allow our love of perfection to create hatred for those things that are not ideal but will do the job, and do it well.
Marchers, make no mistake, we are, every single one of us, under attack.
Our freedom is on the chopping block and we are the only ones who can protect one another. If we on not stand together, march together, for the next four years, then we will lose together. Our opposition know how to — together, they are united in holding the country back. It is in their slogan. So we too must stand united. If we, the millions of Americans who believe in decency, in the greater good, that justice is for all, if we fall into the trap of the separating ourselves by our causes and labels it will weaken our fight and we will lose.
Assured liberty and equality. Simplified, those are the bones of the liberal ideology. That is what we stand to lose.
From progressives and liberals to anarcho-socialists, from Independent voters to Democratic socialists and pragmatic party line Democrats, from white coal miners with nothing left, immigrants or an LGBT families trying to get equal treatment — we are, and have always been, the party of the big tent. Though we may have different methods of getting there, we are focused on the same goals; liberty and equality. There are many who hold dear these values and know that it is the responsibility of the government to assure them to all citizens of America.
She ends with: “If we fall into the trap of separating ourselves by our causes and our labels then we will weaken our fight and we will lose but if we commit to what aligns us if we stand together steadfast an determined then we stand a chance at saving the soul of our country …
So let us march together … text women to 40649 … etc.
This is only day 1 in our united movement!
Later in the day Madonna appears:
There she stood center stage in all her usual vulgarity, shamelessly shouting her expletives to a throng of attendees rapt with attention. The news media explains it away as “it’s classic Madonna”, as if we should somehow excuse her disgusting communication style. It is not her f-bombs that are of concern to me, what is of grave concern however is what she is giving her life to.
Here is a bit of what she said: I apologize to my readers who may be offended by her f-bombs.
“Welcome to the revolution of love. To the rebellion. To our refusal as women to accept this new age of tyranny. Where not just women are in danger but all marginalized people. Where people uniquely different might be considered a crime. It took us this darkness to wake us the f_ _ k up.
“It seems as though we had all slipped into a false sense of comfort. That justice would prevail and that good would win in the end. Well, good did not win this election but good will win in the end. So what today means is that we are far from the end. Today marks the beginning, the beginning of our story. The revolution starts here. The fight for the right to be free, to be who we are, to be equal. Let’s march together through this darkness and with each step. Know that we are not afraid. That we are not alone, that we will not back down. That there is power in our unity and that no opposing force stands a chance in the face of true solidarity.
“And to our detractors that insist that this March will never add up to anything, f__k you. F__k you. It is the beginning of much-needed change. Change that will require sacrifice, people. Change that will require many of us to make different choices in our lives, but this is the hallmark of revolution. So my question to you today is are you ready? I said, are you ready? Say yes, we are ready. Say, yes we are ready. One more time: you’re ready.
“Yes, I’m angry. Yes, I am outraged. Yes, I have thought an awful lot of blowing up the White House, but I know that this won’t change anything. We cannot fall into despair. As the poet, W.H. Auden once wrote on the eve of World War II: We must love one another or die.
“I choose love. Are you with me? Say this with me: We choose love. We choose love. We choose love.”
CNN cut her off but CNN Bash (among a plethora of other media sources both on T.V. and online) said “I think that this incredibly powerful and important. There are so many people out there (these are Hillary Clinton Supporters I’m talking about) that they felt like good would triumph over bad and that didn’t happen” … especially young people, etc.”
