Divisive and Strange

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.

First picture:  What?  I'm not sure what God's law they are talking about.  Render unto Caesar what is Caesar's and God what is God's? Are they talking about abortion and birth-control?  I'm not sure what the message is, but I don't like it.  It strikes me as divisive and strange.

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".

I don't like all this stuff either, but I don't let it really bother me, and invade my thoughts too much. There is so much out there I don't agree with and is frustrating and or offensive. I try to accept it by not focusing on it and applying my thoughts to productive things... Thus this stuff generally leaves my mind about as fast as it came in. Meaning out of sight, out of mind.... Don't let it bother you. People have their own beliefs as crazy as they may seem, they still are... These things do nothing more than make me laugh and shake my head as I pass by..... Peace....

That explains why I couldn't find your post about the health care bill when I went to comment about all the good points you made.

Politics can get heated quickly, but that's no reason for good people to speak with calm reason. You'll find a way to get your voice out there. All it takes for evil to succeed is for good men to do nothing.
