A personal writing from a man I respect deeply

"Please excuse me if I don't feel like smiling at this point and assuring everyone that all is well -- God is in control -- the sun still comes up after the election loss, and numerous other well-meaning, but to me at least, inappropriate platitudes. Understand that I realize the truths contained above, but all is NOT well with America. I am convinced that our beloved nation has been changed forever -- not just because a liberal Democrat has defeated a less-than-exciting moderate Republican, but our America is being sucked into the quicksand of immoral socialism. With some forty percent of Americans already dependant upon the US government by receiving government assistance in a variety of ways while paying no federal taxes, the strain on the tax-paying class comes ever closer to becoming intolerable. Capable people who learn to become totally government-dependant and then teach their children and grandchildren to do the same, will NEVER wish to become productive again. You can write that in stone. When a nation has more people on the receiving end than those on the producing end the system implodes. We are already perilously close to that point. That's the sucking sound you hear.

Mr. Obama has promised to nominate Supreme Court justices which agree with his pro-abortion bias. He has received much support from the nation's number one abortionist, Planned Parenthood. I'm sure he will return the favor. He has also promised to install the FOCA (Freedom of Choice Act), which had been beaten back several time by pro-life Republicans in recent years. This radical FOCA law will strike down all existing reasonable restrictions on abortion such as parental notification and parental consent for the minor girl who wants an abortion -- 24 hour waiting periods in which a girl/woman must be given scientifically-accurate information about the human life within her and then is required to wait 24 hours to think about it -- restrictions like abortions paid for by tax dollars, etc. The result will be that all hard-fought pro-life laws will be struck down and the number of abortions will mushroom. If we were compelled to witness just one abortion and the resultant destruction to an otherwise beautiful human baby we would all be in tears, and many would faint at the horror. The election of Mr. Obama has guaranteed the deaths of additional multiplied millions of American babies. Further, pro-life American Presidents have refused to allow liberal members of Congress to send large financial grants to nations around the world for abortions (again, funded with our tax money).

Ever since Cain killed Able God has punished the shedding of innocent blood. The Bible tells us God hates it. Reading through the Scriptures you will see numerous instances when God sends His righteous judgment upon a nation guilty of this sin. Nevertheless, America, this week, has chosen to pronounce open season on the unborn. For what they hope will be better financial times they have made their choice to sacrifice the lives of others. Mr. Obama has also said he supports homosexual couples adopting children. Reading the books of Jeremiah and Lamentations you will see the unspeakable horrors associated with the judgments of God, with mothers cooking their children to stave off starvation. While it is true that God was still in control during those grievous times I doubt that desperate Israelites found much consolation in being reminded of His control, or that the sun still came up, etc. etc.

The Bible reminds us in Ecclesiastes, "To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:... A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance..." Dear friends, this, in my heart, is a time to weep and mourn for America. To admonish someone for being broken at this time is, it seems to me, as inappropriate as to tell a grieving woman who has just lost her husband to "cheer up, the sun still comes up, and God is still in control."
