I started to begin this article by saying,”I’m shocked at the hatred and intolerance of the liberals”, but then I realized that would be a lie—I’ve known how they feel for a long time. The motivation for this article comes from some comments regarding hurricane Isaac. Actor, Samuel L. Jackson said, in language that I can’t repeat, that it was unfair that the GOP convention was spared from the hurricane and that he was “not understanding God’s plan”.
Actress Ellen Barkin was even more blunt. She said,in part,”C’mon Isaac! Wash every pro-life—gay-bashing, racist SOB right into the ocean!—the RNC”. Why is it that we Christians get accused of being intolerant when they libs and unbelievers are the most intolerant of all? If anyone has a right to cry “Foul” it’s us. They are wishing for people to be drown.
Their filthy rants and death wishes don’t surprise me. I expect that from the Hollywood crowd and liberal politicians, etc. What amazes me is the attitude of people who support those people—-O wait–that doesn’t amaze me either! They have a long track record of hateful intolerance. They are the ones who made these people popular and put them in office. They’re the tree that produced the fruit–rotten as it is.
So I guess I’m not shocked by anything about this (Maybe just a bit that the hurricane hits the same place on the anniversary of Katrina –but that’s another matter and entirely God’s business). But I am brokenhearted to think that a large portion of our population is in their camp. Our beloved nation is in deep trouble, and if good people sit back and do nothing we are doomed.
The up-coming election is a line drawn in the sand and many have their feet planted firmly on both sides and nothing will move them. Even logic and reason won’t persuade some people. The only people we are able to reach those who are standing aside and looking at the line. There are a large number of nice sweet people who just don’t know what to do or if they should even do anything other than just watch the world go by. If we sound the alarm, engage them in conversation, converse with a sweet spirit and keep at it, we can reach some of them. God forbid that we do anything less! This could possibly be a last chance opportunity to turn the tide. Think about it!
