Happening in Our Country

I have tried to keep politics separate from my blog, but today there are a few articles I want to share with you. I do keep the Fox news on most of the time, and I read about news on the internet, in addition to all my blog browsing. I believe since I have gotten my computer, I have become an activist. I found these articles in The Source Daily.

One of my friends said there should be an outcry about this. She said if it had been a Muslim, it would be all over the news. I have some crosses in my windows that may offend someone, especially an atheist. If this can happen at a government owned property, couldn't it be possible that our homes might later be included?

Obama: America is 'no longer Christian' -
Democrat says nation also for Muslims, nonbelievers

Atheist to town: Remove religious symbols -

Homeschoolers' fate hangs on hearing results -

My oh my. I've been trying to stay away from politics, too, Cathy, but I don't know if we shouldn't be doing more when I read news articles such as these. I'm horrified by what Obama said. A young man from church was saying to me yesterday that we Christians have not been doing enough in the face of what's happening. I am starting to be sorely convicted.At the very least we should be bombarding the phones and emails of our congressmen and senators whatever party they belong to and apply more pressure.

Cathy said...

Thank you for commenting, dear Maxine. I do send some emails and also articles to people in the news media.

Yes, Christians need to get involved. I've tried to keep politics out of my blog also, but this year doesn't seem to be the year we can be quiet.

Cathy said...

Thanks Mimi and Sharon, yes we have been complacent way too long.

okay are all right..look what has happened, what IS happening,....and how our country seems to be falling apart at the seams with gas etc...and horrible are right it is time to take a stand.
who also watches FOX news, I feel like I know some of those people there personally.

Deby, :o), that's nice to know. I email them all the time with comments, news, etc. And sometimes, I feel like they listen to me. Recently, I told them that there was one word "Obama" that I was hearing over and over and over again - that I might have to turn them off. :o)They did thank me for the email, with a form message.
