It was not my intent to be gone from this for such a “long” time. There have been many things going on along multiple fronts that have required my attention, plus I don’t know that I have much to say at the
moment. Here’s some of the things that I’ve been thinking about:
Where does the Supreme Court get the right to throw out state’s laws?
I know they have been doing it for a while now, but this latest thing regarding the death penalty for teens under 18 just shows them overstepping their bounds once again. Who are these five people to say that they know better than the voters about the trend of morality in the country? And how often are people of this age penalized in this way? What’s the process– and by this I mean, how difficult is it? Shouldn’t there be the ability to punish a mass murderer or cannibal that happens to be 17? How is it that a girl that is under 18 has the ability to figure out whether she will kill her baby, but a 17 yr old cannot be responsible for killing others?
How is that more and more of the next generation of the United States is being raised by grand parents?
Perhaps this isn’t a bad thing in the sense that it means that life expectancy is greater, but it does show the priorities and what the government has done in destroying a normal family life. Look around, and you can easily find mothers who are unwed, living together with someone without the benefit of marriage, two people working and giving their kids to daycare and grandparents to raise… What is up with our society? And to top it all off, I could save money in a flexible spending account to pay for “child care” that’s outside the home and not have that money taxed, but if I raise the kid myself all the money’s taxed.
Why are churches seeing such struggles lately?
I’m involved in searching for a new pastor for my church because of problems with communication and general church government. My father’s involved with a problem with church government and what
happened to one of his friends. It seems that the church is being attacked more successfully than ever before– or is it that I just notice it more?
Are there more diagnosis of cancer now because we didn’t know how to diagnose it before?
