Politics demonstrates the extreme abnormality of today's untrustworthy world where nobody can really be trusted. Politics is a liars game of tolerance and compromise, where who lies fastest, loudest, "mostest" and biggest wins. And as always, the lie portends of the theft about to take place.
It's odd that the only substantive story in the forefront of the news seems to be the true statement by Congressman Todd Akin that was commandeered by his enemies, bent and twisted and deliberately misconstrued in an attempt to discredit and remove him from office. Politics.
Remember a few years ago when a San Bernadino councilman used the word "niggardly" in discussing his city's finances, and he was forced to resign for being "racist"? Politics and ignorance make strange bedfellows.
Today, that which is contrary to nature, morality and common sense arrogantly asserts itself and demands to be accepted as normal — evidenced by 54 million unborn babies murdered by "legal" abortion since 1973, the sexual perversion now challenging God's natural plan of marriage of male and female for the purpose of procreation and family, and our rejection of God by supplanting him with the foolishness of evolution. How can righteous hearts and knowledgeable minds call the abhorrent normal?
There is one thing for certain: We will not thumb our noses at God, nor flip him the "middle finger" with impunity. Whether we like it or not, or believe it or not, it doesn't matter because the basic law of the universe is cause and effect — "we reap what we sow" and "obedience brings blessing, disobedience brings judgment."
Our country and our planet are reeling under judgment as we speak, evidenced by global turmoil, wars and unrest, financial and social collapse, catastrophic drought, storms and fires — it is what it is.
Civilization is a very thin veneer.
