The weak, the poor, the minority…

This last week I was involved in a couple of internet discussions on the “marriage equality” ruling.

It’s not really marriage equality as it still excludes poly marriage, but that is a talk for another time.

Anyway, on the progressive board, someone wrote that it was up to government to defend the weak, the poor, and the minority from the strong, the rich, and the majority.

Excuse me?

The initial post was about a Supreme Court ruling that just overturned government taking the side of the strong, the rich, and the majority.

We’re so conditioned to expect the government to “save us” that we overlook government oppressing us.

If it’s the right people.

For the right reasons.

And at the right time.

And with the right press coverage.

And with the support of the beautiful people.

I don’t know how many more times I can say it.

Government is not your friend.

Never more so than when it tells you that it is.

Case in point, the Imperious Leader lit up the White House with the colors of the gay flag after the fact.

Before the ruling, can you name a single time that Obama could be bothered to support gay rights?

Government is not your friend.

Politicos lie and betray you.

And most importantly, government never should have been allowed to license marriage in the first place.

Impress Me

You want to impress me, come up with something more than "the Bible told me so.” Don't make threats about judgement and eternal flame. Don't tell me about the changes it's made in your life. Don’t tell me how it’s “saved you.” Don’t tell me how you have the hotline to the “Almighty." 

And don’t tell me “it’s God’s judgement” when you’re the one spouting the words.

Tell me about the changes your faith makes in the world around you. Tell me what you do that makes the world better than when you got here.  Tell me how your faith manifests through you. 

Tell me about how you pass it on.

If that "Living Word" exists, it has to be in the hearts and souls of those people who have really embraced it. It's not in a dusty book. The verses don't matter except to show you the way. Tell me what lives behind those printed words. Tell me how you turned your sacrifice into a blessing.

Tell me about love. Tell me about the love you showed today.

Your actions show that. 

Your next choice starts now.
