In Your Opinion: Traditional beliefs are ridiculed

We here in the USA are seeing our freedoms and rights being skewed. If we are for traditional marriage, then we are labeled a hater and bigot and are told we can’t disagree. 

If we doubt all the pseudo-science evolution hype from Big Bang to ape-men, then we are expelled. If we believe in the right to bear arms, we are marked right wing extremists. If we are for the sanctity of life we are tagged against women and their reproductive rights?

I urge you to contact our governor and our various representatives to Albany and tell them to stop abortion at any stage of the pregnancy, including late-term. Why? Because a life will be taken and a scared, pregnant woman needs help and understanding, not a supposed quick fix as if abortion is just another form of birth control.

Think this through, just because it is legal does not make it good or true. The apple of God’s eye, the Jewish people, could be robbed, tortured and murdered legally in Nazi Germany. I hope we all agree that was a horrifying holocaust. However, we vote people into office who make laws that go against our U.S. Constitution and our own conscience just because we have an allegiance to a particular political party. 

Please remember to seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness and all else will be added to us.
