I was really going to avoid these topics but I am a little confused so I'm going to write about them anyway.
1. Josh Duggar- He was wrong. He was old enough to know better but he did it anyway. But here's the thing, we don't know all the details. We know what the media is telling us and that is probably only 25% of the story. I will say that I do have a problem with this country jumping up in arms over this when Lena Dunham said last year that she molested her little sister and everybody threw it out "because she was just a kid." Why in the world would we let her slide with her crime but tear him up over his? I realize that he is a CHRISTIAN MALE who is very vocal in his beliefs. (And by the way, shouldn't we be recognizing the fact that he has repented and been forgiven by the ones who deserve to give him forgiveness? Because I'm sorry but why should he apologize to me when I don't even know that guy. AND WHY IS NOBODY QUESTIONING HOW A SEALED JUVENILLE FILE WAS LEAKED TO THE MEDIA???????) Lena Dunham is an actress with very little in the way of morals or religion if her public persona is any indication. She should have been raked through the coals of public opinion too.
2. This whole BRUCE JENNER thing. Why in the world are we praising him? This whole family is after nothing but media attention and money. Otherwise he would not have waited to "come out as a woman" until the time where he could get the most publicity and money. And I am sorry but GOD DOES NOT MAKE MISTAKES! He created Bruce Jenner to be a MALE. Satan has run rampant and planted a seed that grew into a mess. There is nothing heroic or brave about what he has done. It is a sick thing that parents now have to explain to their children and that the media wants us to make okay. IT IS NOT OKAY! Jesus said to love the sinner but to hate the sin. Quit giving Satan such a huge platform to control future generations.
3. Since when is it okay to walk on the American flag? I am pretty sure it is illegal and yet the police are standing by letting it happen because they don't want to offend them. I know what America is the laughing stock of the world. We are bending over backwards to give in and not offend instead of standing up for our country and what our forefathers stood for. I think it is time for the American people to wake up and start speaking up.
4. Race cards are getting a little bit ridiculous. How in the world am I supposed to teach my children that race should not be a factor and that what matters is a person's character if all that the schools and media are doing is teaching them that it is the most important thing in the world? And why are the history books being changed to make white people into an enemy? I am sorry but my ancestors were treated worse than slaves and they are told to shut up and get back to the reservation today. GROW UP PEOPLE. Realize that using your race as an excuse is not going to get you anywhere. And there is no such thing as white priveledge (unless you are a millionaire and since what you have there is called rich priveledge and is the same for all races, I don't think that counts.) I, as a white person (with native american ancestory by the way) actually get less priveledges. I will be turned down for government assitance, loans, etc just because I checked white on a piece of paper. There is no such thing as an "Obamaphone" for me. I actually do know this because I tried to get one and the man told me that they were only for black people. Yeah, please point me in the direction of white privledge. The only thing that will get you anywhere in life worth going is hard work and not making excuses. I wish that we could still teach our children that.
I think that is it. I vented. I opened up several cans of worms. I probably lost one of my few readers or even all of them. But I wish that Christians would start standing up for the Bible and I wish that Americans would start standing up for our country. One person can only do so much.
