Someone scolded me for not being very Christian on my blog.
And… perhaps I could’ve been (maybe that should be my blog title “I could’ve…”)
I doubt many people think of this blog as a christian blog… but I do know that Christ was more than willing to hear people out. I know that Christ loves Mr. Obama as much as he loves you and I think that he’s proud when Mr. Obama says to children who respect him (some, in fact possibly idolize him) for them to work hard and to stay in school, for that is all he is saying. Personally, I think one of the best qualities you can bestow on a child is rational thinking and being able to decide for himself what is true — and being willing to listen to both sides.
After further probing, I learned that at D’s school they are requiring the HIGH SCHOOLERS to get a parent’s permission to watch it. I don’t get that at all. Dang, they’re in high school. These people will VOTE for the president in a few years.
I sort of get it in elementary school, but I still think it’s extreme to pull them because the president is speaking to them. I could also go on about the death panel debate, but since I’ve been the one performing CPR on a person who really wishes they were dead, but never was able to have that conversation I’ll let you think whatever you want…. Next time you crack a rib on an 80 year old man who’s quality life is already in the “negative” collumn you might think a conversation about end of life discussion would be nice to have funded with a nation’s health care system….
Wow… you can’t shut me up today. 🙂
