I don’t know about you, but I’m sick of compromises. The kingdom of God is not advanced through compromising with the children of Satan. We’re here to conquer, not make peace.
I am not interested in seeing stickers in science books explaining that evolution is just a theory. The real debate ought to be between ID and Creationism.
I am not interested in restricting profanity and other filth to only late night TV. We ought to censor it.
I am not interested in the display of the 10 Commandments as part of a historic display. I want a state that openly acknowledges the God of the Bible as our sovereign and the source of all law and morality.
I am not interested in references to a vague “God” in an idolatrous pledge of allegiance to a nation and flag. My allegiance is to Jesus Christ, and I owe honor and obedience to the state because He said so.
I am not interested in any religious service that refers to the God of Abraham, Jesus, and Mohammed. I cannot consider a man a solid Christian if he does not know the differences between Jehovah and Allah or that there is indeed a difference.
I am not interested in “civil unions” for sodomites, just so long as they don’t call it “marriage”. Even the New Testament says sodomites deserve death. At least we could keep a law on the books about it.
And I am no longer interested in voting for Republicans. We’re voting to win, right? Can someone tell me what we’ve won?
Peggy Noonan puts it well:
The Republican Party controls the Senate, the House and the White House. The Republicans are in charge. They have the power. If they can’t save this woman’s [Terri Shiavo’s] life, they will face a reckoning from a sizable portion of their own base. And they will of course deserve it.
The idea is that half a loaf is better than no loaf at all, especially if you can keep working to get that other half. I’m starting to suspect that we aren’t getting any of the loaf either way. I’d rather go hungry and maintain my dignity by sticking to my principles.
What are we afraid of? Didn’t Jesus tell us the gates of Hell would not prevail against (i.e., withstand) us? Why aren’t we charging?
Kiss the Son, lest He be angry. That’s our king. He doesn’t say pretty please.
I understand that we can’t win everything immediately. I know that the road to eliminating abortion is long and rocky, and that eliminating partial birth abortion is a step. But I’m really starting to wonder if the companions we’ve chosen are interested in walking the same road we are, and indeed if all of us are interested in walking down that road.
