WE CAN'T LET OBAMA BE RE-ELECTED:
BULLSHIT. We can choose to vote for him, or not vote for him, but as a God fearing member of these great United States, I feel that all the drama and FEAR is ridiculous. There are a great many scriptures that speak of the "last days". Well surprise surprise... we are living in those very days. I feel like anyone who is FEARFUL of what is happening in our country is simply lacking faith. I KNOW that things are going to get much, much worse... it says so in the good ol' Holy Bible. So the answer is not to spend our time fearing and trying to control things that have been decided since the beginning of time. The answer is to be prepared. The 'Mormons' have been told for years to plant a garden, have food storage, and learn to live simply. If you are choosing not to come up with solutions to your mind's "worst case scenarios" then you are choosing your own fate. I have no idea if Obama will be re-elected or if some other poor sap will get the job, but in my opinion it doesn't matter... The ball has been set in motion, long ago if you really look back, and I don't believe anyone can stop it... nor are they supposed to if you believe what it says in the bible.
Ooohhh a touchy subject for some. I would like to state first and foremost that I have a great many friends and family who are homosexual. I love them with all my heart, and I do hope that they love me in spite of my many faults. I believe that a great number of people are born with homosexual tendencies. I also believe that a great number of people CHOOSE to seek it out. I believe that homosexuality is much like other vices that people face in life. Some people have very addictive personalities, and are drawn in to drugs or alcohol. Some people are inherently angry, and they hit or belittle others to build themselves up. I believe that some people are consumed with a "worldly" attitude, and they live every moment trapped in a nonexistent battle of who they are better than. My point is that I believe homosexuality is a "cross to bear" some people choose to fight it, some people choose to embrace it. I pass no judgement either way. I leave that to GOD. Because I am guilty of so many things... I have my own crosses to bear, and I hope that God will be merciful to me because I know I fall very short of perfection. Some people might raise the argument that "You should be yourself." I find this statement hypocritical. Would we tell a drug addict to just go ahead and be themselves? I think not. There are many facets that make up who we are, and none of them alone should define us as a whole. I know that many will disagree with me, and that is fine, but please keep the comments clean, and kind.
Just had to get that off my chest...
