A Humble Question

What Do You See?

The Specific Issues have changed since I first wrote this — but not the question  has not.

The question came to mind as I perused the headlines in the paper and on line.

  1. Sexpo sues Dallas after ban remains – The mayor and city council don’t want a triple X entertainment venue at the convention center: Government stands up to do something sensible and is about to be smacked down – for infringing on someone’s right to profit and enjoy what is wrong.
  2. Meanwhile, Chick fil a rocks another American University . . .
  3. And Donald Trump is apparently the unstoppable candidate. See an article in WORLD Magazine on The Big Gamble.

Question:

  1. How does unfettered public access to pornography make us smarter, wiser, better people?
  2. How does stating plainly the point of view that marriage is between a man and a woman harm college students?
  3. How does promoting gambling for relaxation and vacations help communities and citizens?

Answers:

  1. Well, it’s my right to look at what I want – no matter what it costs those posing for it.
  2. It’s my right not to have to think about your opinions.
  3. It’s my right to spend my money any way I want – even if I am on government assistance, and the facilities cost taxpayers.

Three hot-button issues – skipping abortion, euthanasia, and relaxing marijuana laws; or, the governing powers that be, and the unstable imploding world – lest my keyboard spontaneously combust – and I know I’ve backed off some friends and family. 🙁

Remember Hans Christian Anderson’s story, The Emperor’s New Clothes? Does anybody else see a buck- naked Emperor?

No, No – This is the best of all possible worlds. . . right?

I don’t think so . . . I don’t think we are more compassionate, wise, or kind. I think we have lost our mooring when we – the church — cast off from God’s care so that we might be palatable to the world. (Please read Catch the Little Foxes)

Oh, God give us ears to hear Your Voice,

and a heart that is willing to come home. ( Isaiah 65:2 )
