This article has me a bit choked up. I wrote about JC Penny awhile ago when it was going through its problems with the One Million Moms boycott. April brought job cuts to the company and now it will cut an additional 350 jobs at its headquarters. I bet you since the moms are a nominal Christian group they will say this was God’s will and will happily take credit for it. I’m sure included in their glad tidings is the fact, that straight and probably Christian people lost their jobs as well. No problem, they will pray for them to find jobs. This is the thinking that goes behind blind ignorance. This is a great example of the perversion in religion I often fight against.
There is a new saying called the single parent hoax. I kind of made it up but it still fits nicely within the frame of what’s being written. Recently, Wisconsin State Sen. Glenn Grothman wrote SB(senate bill)507 which classifies single parenting as child abuse. There is another provision that is written that is equally shocking and it also affects same-sex couples. Take a look for yourself so you want just take my word for it.
Section 1. 48.982 (2) (g) 2. of the statutes is amended to read: 48.982 (2) (g) 2. Promote statewide educational and public awareness campaigns and materials for the purpose of developing public awareness of the problems of child abuse and neglect. In promoting those campaigns and materials, the board shall emphasize nonmarital parenthood as a contributing factor to child abuse and neglect.
Section 2. 48.982 (2) (g) 4. of the statutes is amended to read: 48.982 (2) (g) 4. Disseminate information about the problems of and methods of preventing child abuse and neglect to the public and to organizations concerned with those problems. In disseminating that information, the board shall emphasize nonmarital parenthood as a contributing factor to child abuse and neglect.
This guy should be voted out. His reasoning for the bill, 31 percent of Wisconsinite children are raised by single parents. This is overreaching governance that is unnecessary. The problems or better yet the true problem has to be addressed instead of an ignorant ass bill being written.
This sign had me at a loss for words. When was the last time we had a Christian President? As a person of faith I’m not the most motivated by politicians using their religious pedigree on the campaign trail. The last and only sincere Christian president was in my estimation, Jimmy Carter. I’m just saying. This is where the rubber meets the road. Is Mormonism a christian religion. EVERY NOMINAL CHRISTIAN DENOMINATION SAYS NO! I’m smiling, cause I’m wondering how these patriotic, God-loving, country loving, gun-toting, non-constitutional understanding people are going to vote. Their God will whisper in their ear “vote Romney a venture capitalist who has done more to destroy the American framework by taking advantage of its many offerings.” I’m sure this guy has slept well knowing how he has acquired his dough.
Welcome to our democracy that you can buy as well as sell. A Christian president is laughable, I want a person to represent the people and keep their promises; like that’s going to happen. Anyway, cast your vote and hope for the best, whatever that is. Didn’t Bush II base policy on the voice of God? He claims God told him to go into Iraq. We see how that worked out. He and immoral Clinton single- handedly destroyed this country and yet folks want another Christian president.
I would be remiss if I didn’t say anything about the Penn State debacle. I have to be careful not to be disrespectful. I don’t blame Jerry Sandusky, he was a sick man who needed help yet he preyed on young boys while Joe Paterno did nothing about it. What is more problematic is he is supposed to be a Christian with core values. Another issue is the talk of the death penalty which should happen, but people are arguing the incident didn’t affect the outcome on the field and the program will suffer because from the bad press. Really? This is criminal behavior/activity that should be punished to the highest extent. Joe is no longer with us and can’t speak for himself but what is left of his legacy does speak of itself.
