NEVER, absolutely NEVER in my 80th year or my friend's 85th, have we ever witnessed a President of the United States of America give a speech in which he used ridicule and sarcasm when referring to half of the population of the country. And, as with all such cheap shots, his hand picked, chosen liberal and Progressive audience laughed and applauded with glee while he grinned and absorbed the adulation. This is reprehensible. We're all just a bunch of Rodney Dangerfield's to him--he has no, absolutely no, respect for anyone who disagrees with him.
Last night was one of the times I just couldn't find it in me to post any legitimate comment on anything of interest. Everything was just over shadowed by that display.
Then this morning I attended Bible Study, it was my turn to lead and some of my research led to a passage in Mark which told of Peter reacting to a look, just a look, from Jesus after Peter realized that he had, indeed, denied the Christ 3 times before the cock crowed. Just a look. That's all we need to make us take time to be introspective enough to realize that we all have the same problem. Further, as St. Augustine has said "God cares for us as if he had no other." And the theme of this year's Lenten suppers was "God loves us no mater what." "And Peter wept bitterly."
I am so sorry that I do not have that same capacity--none of us does, but as we have said before, we may not have the right to judge others but if we don't criticize certain behaviors it is as though we approve of and agree with them. And the President just does not represent much of what I hold dear including the freedoms we have in this country including calling this country a Christian and religious nation even though the President denies it world wide.
I am thankful that there are churches that are filled to capacity this weekend along with Christmas, the Synagogues for Passover, and that attendance testifies to our Judeo Christian heritage.
And God bless......
