Gun and other such Laws

29 Mar

What happened with all the gun violence has never and will never be addressed by congress or the courts.  The problem with the violence is it is spurned on by the absence of God in our society.  There were machine guns operated by crazy people in the twenties.  People have been killing people indiscriminately for decades since pray was taken out of school when the church let that happen.

 

When you really think about it the general public wants congress to pass legislation that will micromanage morality.  In actuality congress can pass this legislation, but with the freedom we have it can never be enforced. 

 

The public cannot put the responsibility for morality off on the congress and courts.  They have no conscious.  They only know rules and negotiations.  The public must give an outcry to congress and the courts to re-establish God in our society, not by rules but by actions.  If we Christians (?) will begin to act like Christians, the people elected and appointed to positions of high office will be Christians.  If they are Christian, the laws and the rule of law will navigate back to a Christian nation being tolerant of other religions that worship God, instead of a nation that doesn’t care what anyone worships.

 

I support President Obama as president.  He is doing a good job, but I get cold chills every time I think about him saying, “We are no longer a Christian nation.”  This cannot be.   

 

The leaders of our churches, as a rule, do not take sides against both sides of the political spectrum.  Many say they are Christians and therefore Republicans.  That is nuts.  Christianity is not political, but the church is obligated to help protect its members, feed the poor, and come to the aid of those in need in whatever way they can while bringing them into the folds of Christianity.  This is the charge given the disciples before his crucifixion.

 

If we could take a minute to take stock of our own lives, we could see where we can improve.  I have done that, and discovered that I am a mess.  God loves me anyway, but he wants me to improve.  I’m trying.  I challenge you to also take stock and try.

Gay Marriage

27 Mar

The media continues to report that the majority of the public supports same sex marriage.  The Supreme Court of the United States, I am afraid, believes this judging from the questions and answers so far.  If this assumption is true another misguided decision could be forthcoming.

 

I present another scenario I believe to be true.  The majority of the public, I don’t believe has ever been poled properly. I don’t believe a majority of the public supports same sex marriages. I believe a majority of the public support same sex unions to allow the legal position of the same sex unions to have equal rights in law. There is no way that a Christian majority agrees with same sex marriages.

 

I believe if the question was put to them that would separate the difference between same sex marriage and same sex legal union, the result would come much closer to the real opinion of the public.

What is truth and how should it be reported?

23 Mar

There is equal blame between Congress and the media for confusing the public to the point we don’t have a clue as to the real truth.

 

It is true that a statistician can take a set of numbers and without using all of them every time come to a different conclusion with each study they perform.  However, by ignoring one or more of the factors necessary to reach a conclusion, the outcome can never be reliable and true.  Unless we know what the politicians know we can never discover the real truth.

 

Reported: There is no way to reduce the gas consumption of automobiles more than is being produced in the USA.

 

Fact:  There are existing modifications that can be made to existing engine that could as much as triple the gas mileage presently available in our US automobiles.

 

Reported:  The car and truck exhaust pollution cannot be reduced in the near future.

 

Fact:  The same technology that produces the better gas mileage can also produce very small amount of pollution which would not show up on most automobile testing units.

 

Note:  A group of congress members have views this technology.

 

This is just one example of misinformation delivered to us by our representatives in congress and confirmed many times over by the media.

 

Get involved.  Get the facts.
