Giving Thanks In The Wake Of The Election (not what you think)

http://www.bobrussell.org/2012/11/08/giving-thanks-in-the-wake-of-the-election/

I’m thankful I don’t live in Ohio or Florida. Some of my preacher friends living in one of those two swing states (my son included) are frustrated that the thousands of churches in their state didn’t make more of a difference. Those preachers are asking if they did enough.

I’m thankful I don’t live in Washington State. Two friends of ours were visiting from Seattle this past weekend. They lamented that they were going back to a state that had approved gay marriage and legalized marijuana. They asked, ‘How would you like to raise your children in that kind of liberal environment?”

I’m thankful for bold preachers who took a strong stand. A number of ministers retreated from the fight. But some very influential ministers with national ministries and others who preach in small country churches were perceptive enough to understand the battle and took a strong, courageous stand in this election. They took some heat but I’m confident the Lord will say, “Well done, good and faithful servant”.

...

I’m thankful that Jesus is going to return soon. The Bible says when the Lord returns every knee will bow and every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord. When that day comes, I’ll be on my knees acknowledging that Jesus is King of Kings. So will Michael Moore, Bill Maher, John Stewart, Barbara Streisand, Whoopee Goldberg, Rachel Maddow, Chris Matthews” and any who sneer at God’s truth – all will be humbly acknowledging that Jesus is Lord. Even so, Lord Jesus, come quickly.







Know what I'm thankful for?

That we don't live under the theocratic rule of Fund-A-Mental cases!!!

2. Some states do live under a semi-theocratic rule (like Texas)

So I have to be thankful that we had a huge turnout in Texas this year, and did begin to vote a few good people in; some other good ones lost, unfortunately, but I have hope. The young people coming up are my hope. My generation is lost, as well as a lot of the "baby boomer" generation. They have bought into the state as religion dogma.

4. Ooooooh. The tone of this is too familiar...

I've got the point that when I encounter this kind of dialogue in real life, I just nod politely and make no sudden movements.

I think that we need to realize this type of opinion is developed over time. No single discussion, argument or stump speech will unwind the level of brainwashing done.

I try to respect the inherent goodness of people, but this fearful/us/them rhetoric is tough.
