Thinking About MLK and Barack Obama
I have really struggled to keep my opinions to myself,
and to move forward in support of our duly elected commander in chief.
I find I just don’t have it in me.
I am afraid for my country and for all the people in these
(Less than) united-United States.
Today, thinking about MLK and the life he lived and the teaching he gave.
Always, always, using himself as an example for people to follow.
“I have a dream that my four children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character. … And if America is to be a great nation this must become true.” –Martin Luther King Jr.
Focusing on the “content of a person’s character rather than the color of his skin”… What character has Barek Obama shown? That he is exceptionally adept at avoiding or covering up facts? That the content of a person’s bank account weighs heavily in his decision making?
That honesty and integrity are catch words……..
I see such irony in watching Barak Obama being sworn in as President of the United States.
He professes to be a Christian, yet….this man worshiped for 20 some years under a preacher whose message was anti-American hate, just plain hate and bigotry.
I don’t care who you are or where you are, but 20 years of the same message is going to impact your thoughts and decision making.
During the transition of power, he continues to avoid questions about his citizenship, his personal ethics, it seems that daily the news has announced a new scandal, arrests, rumors, and more rumors. All of it is ugly and reflects in my mind that this country is facing a disaster.
I believe that God is going to allow us to reap as we have sown.
