Recently my son sent me 2 blog entries from Switchfoot's frontman Jon Foreman about our countries lack of response to genocide in Darfur. What he had to say just gets my blood boiling. There is a voice that must be heard and the truth must be shouted from the rooftops.
President Obama said before coming into office: "We can't ignore the genocide in Darfur... We have to do everything in our power to make it stop. We have to act. Now." what has been done...Nothing!!
Oh he has been busy undoing and reversing any moral principles from previous administrations. Making sure the gay agenda advances with same sex marriages, making sure the unborn baby who had no voice can be aborted because they are unwanted or because it will cramp the style of a young mother who is not ready for the responsibility. Let's not forget the $1.5 Billion emergency fund our President released to protect us from the 'swine flu' that has killed 3 people in the US. I feel much safer now-I could just hug a pig...To keep that in perspective, what would be needed to deal with a problem in Darfur that killed over 300,000 already? Yet we do nothing.
Today's hot news story was Socal Security going bankrupt by 2012, Yankees with the help of A-Roid still playing .500 ball, Dodgers Manny being Manny for failing drug test, and all yeah there is some airport in Denver that may have to close because of prairie dogs digging up their runway. Important stuff huh.
There is a voice that must be heard and the truth must be told. Jesus Saves is the eternal answer. But while we are still here how can we remain silent over the atrocities of human life?
Meanwhile, every couple of seconds another child dies, another child becomes an orphan because of genocide or AIDS, or from hunger. Tick, tock, tick, tock...another child is gone...tick, tock, tick, tock...another child dies...
Hello Mr. President-What time is it on your watch??!!
