I told myself I wouldn't blog about politics any more. I don't want to cause riffs-and really I'm not a confrontation person. Still, I can't handle some of what I am seeing. I deleted my "Patriotic blog" and I've tried to be quiet, but look at these! Both of these pictures I find offensive and just weird.
Second picture: Whoa! So I understand this one-I think. The idea being that Christ didn't discriminate and that he was a great healer. But, I so don't like this. Think of how the argument could go the other way. Christ healed-but he didn't ask others to pay for it. Christ sometimes asked the person to go wash themselves in a river 7 times-which could be compared to doing what you can for yourself.... Christ invited others to come unto Him, but he didn't mandate it. I don't know but I think this argument could go either way-and we shouldn't go there at all!! It strikes me as divisive and strange. Plus, the inference is terrible-if you disagree that a big government program isn't best to take care of people-you are obviously not being Christlike. (Wow. There is a lot of judging in that!) I'd love to bring up "No Child Left Behind" and compare it-but I'll save that for another post. Maybe. Or maybe I'll learn to be quiet.
ps. Both pictures were from Facebook. One my sister in law took with her camera, the second has been posted on many a "wall".
