Christians in politics

If it is the job of our government to represent us, but some people believe Christians should stay out of politics… how will the needs of those of us who are Christians be met? God wants to be first in every part of our lives. Part of my life is being an American. If we as Christians don’t put God-honoring actions into place, nobody else will do it for us. Where God is banished, evil fills the void.

I keep hearing the phrase ‘Christian Nationalism’ thrown around like it is some negative concept when you combine being a Christian with liking America. It is possible to love God, and love our country. I think it is silly that people think being a Christian disqualifies you from being interested, active, and educated in politics.

My husband and I were discussing this, and he decided to make a podcast about it. Take a listen if you want to hear more…

Creating racism to fight racism

How do people think that fighting racism with more racism will solve our problems? If it is racist if ‘white’ is used somewhere, then it is also racist if ‘black’ is used to determine who gets something. For this blog, I’m going to use black and white since that seems to be the current focus. Although you should be able to insert any race and get the same answer.

I want to be sure we are on the same page, so here is the definition of racism:

racism rā′sĭz″əm►

  • n.The belief that race accounts for differences in human character or ability and that a particular race is superior to others.
  • n.Discrimination or prejudice based on race.
  • n.The belief that each race has distinct and intrinsic attributes.

Allow me to share some examples…

Here is a headline that I saw yesterday, “After permit approved for whites-only church, small Minnesota town insists it isn’t racist”

Is it racist? Yes! Replace ‘white’ with ‘black’ in that headline. Is it still racist? Yup. Okay, that was am easy one. Let’s look at another example:

“New, $62 million fund for Black Oregonians attracts nearly 7,000 applicants in 4 days…”

Guys, that’s racist too. What if the headline read, “New, $62 million fund for White Oregonians attracts nearly 7,000 applicants in 4 days…” Racist. If it is racist with one color in it, it is racist for any color to be singled out.

My husband made a podcast discussing how we in America decided to vaccinate frontline caregivers first for Covid. It sounds noble. But a deeper look into the reasoning behind the decision is disturbing. The elderly are at greatest risk of dying to Covid. But it is mostly white people who live to be old. There are many reasons this could be true, but instead of trying to solve underlying issues that cause such things, we should just let the whites die off. It will give us an opportunity to level the field. This is not my opinion, it is the opinion of professor Herald Schmidt.

“Older populations are whiter, ” Harald Schmidt, a professor of ethics and health policy at the University of Pennsylvania, told The New York Times. “Society is structured in a way that enables them to live longer. Instead of giving additional health benefits to those who already had more of them, we can start to level the playing field a bit.”

When Doug brought this up, I was skeptical. But, a quick search brought up many articles covering this topic. Not only is this racist, it is tiptoeing along the border of eugenics. If you want to listen to his podcast on this topic, you can find it below.

Double standards are no longer surprising

The Red House in Portland. If you have not heard of it – I would urge you to look it up and take a few moments to read about this situation.

What if you or I decided we didn’t want to pay our bills, and when eviction came, we put up barriers, closing off streets, recruited armed guards to set up booby traps for anyone who dates to enter our zone, and demanded to negotiate with officials?

Would we be viewed as innocent victims who are in need of help? As people who should be negotiated with at all?

We would be rooted out, arrested, evicted, and punished. That is what would and should happen. But not to ‘some’ people with the correct ideology who use all of the best buzzwords in the right city. They get to endanger their neighborhoods, the police and threaten other civilians. They expressed intent to cause harm to people who are not welcomed.

This just one example, out of SO many, of the double standards that are based on which side you belong to politically. Doug’s latest podcast talks about this. You can listen to it here:

The price of freedom

Today the price for freedom is taking a toll in a different way than it has in the past. We aren’t at war with an outside enemy as we have been to defend our country and our freedom. The battle is being fought much closer to home. Some businesses in Washington are opening despite the mandates, and are being fined heavily for such defiance. The support from the community is ongoing, but the fines are building. In the podcast for today, Doug talks about the small businesses that are bravely fighting for freedom, and the mounting fines they are facing.
