USA Today published the latest Gallup Poll that showed Obama got it wrong. This man of the people doesn’t yet know the People. However, to be fair, I think when he signed the executive order to restore U.S. funding to organizations that perform and promote abortion in developing nations by repealing the Mexico City Policy he knew this act was out of step with the American will. Obama, while he did some things with great fanfare, this sneak-signing was something he chose to do behind closed doors, out of the limelight and at such a time that it was thought in media circles that people wouldn’t notice. Well, he got that wrong too and people are noticing his propensity for rule by fiat and getting it wrong.
The Gallup Poll showed that only 35% of the polled 1027 people agreed with President Obama’s action. Hadly, a popular action of necessity! US taxpayer dollars will promote and procure abortions in the name of America. Thank you President Obama!
The secular world looks upon Jesus, deemed irrelevant, and says, “Crucify Him!”
President Barak Obama looks upon the Church and it’s voiced opposition to the gospel of Death and says, “I won!” In other words, “Crucify Him!”
Nancy Pelosi looks upon the teachings of the Church (her Church?) and it’s proclamation of the Gospel of Life. Then, with political and pragmatic correctness, hammer and nails in hand, pronounces, in effec,t that Life costs too much. So,we hear again,“Crucify Him!”
Here’s the vision as it was related to me. You and I squeak pass the Pearly Gates. People of all ages overwhelm even our enhanced understanding of the generations descended from Adam and Eve. We can’t wait to embrace them. Instantly, we know their stories. These are those who lived Salvation history. “What was it like?”, we ask over and again? These, after all, are those who walked dry shod through the walls of water escaping Pharaoh’s chariots. Here, too, are the masses who had pressed upon the Christ. They’d witnessed the manner and miracles of Jesus. Some has eaten the bread and fish He’d multiplied. Others admitted that they had shouted, “Crucify Him.” Others had stood along the way as He pushed on to Calvary. The martyrs from all past centuries were among the most joyful. They now rejoiced that their blood shed for Christ seeded the proceeding eons to bear fruit in such as we. For all our eagerness to express our gratitude to them and give glory to God, they pressed the more upon us for their need to know our stories. “Tell us,” they asked, “how black did the times become when men who pretend to knowledge denied life in the womb. How dark were the days in which the hearts of mothers died, choosing to bring forth corpses instead of living children. You, who lived with blindness and deafness, how did you survive? Like Peter, was it repentance that re-ignited your flame? How did you find courage walking the Valley of the Shadow of Death? How bright was the Light that brought you home?”
