Most of you probably read here, not long ago, that I deleted three people from my friends list on Facebook due to their incessant rooting for Obama and hate-filled diatribes against Republicans. Understand, I am no longer a Republican myself, having found the leadership near carbon copies of Democrats. However, hate-filled rants against ANYONE grow very tiring very quickly and are troubling to the soul. Rooting for Obama, after four years of treason, strikes me as either a sign of complete immorality, or complete foolishness. More than one verse in the Bible warns us not to waste our time trying to reason with fools. Still, I truly liked one of the guys who I deleted, and it caused me no small amount of sadness to severe the connection.
And so, today, it was with sadness that I read that one of my fellow bloggers and Facebook friends had voted early for Obama, and was doing the same thing I’d done recently, but in the other direction. Knowing that I was probably in her sights already, I deleted her from my friends list. Later, she sent a message “inviting” me to quit following her blog. Strangely enough, I didn’t find myself there to delete, so maybe she found a way to do it herself.
I’ll miss the lady’s down-home poems and prose. I’ll miss her open-hearted concern for others. I’ll miss having a fellow Christian to pray for my concerns and to ask me to pray for her concerns in return. Most of all, though, I am amazed. I’m amazed that anyone can completely separate their Christianity from their business, or their politics.
There is a vast multitude of political and constitutional reasons for not supporting Obama, but how any Christian can support him is especially beyond me. The man has been caught in lie after lie. He’s decided to tow the party line and support sodomy. And, of course, he believes it’s perfectly okay to murder unborn babies so their mothers won’t be inconvenienced.
I can understand anyone’s lack of happiness with the current crop of candidates. However, the lady’s ability to completely ignore common sense and toss Christian values to the wind disappoints me. Though I’ll miss the lady, I guess what I feel most is that disappointment. © 2012
