Posted on my Facebook:
Dear Lord, I’ve tried to be good and turn my cheek for months now. But my tongue is sore from biting it. In advance, I ask that you please forgive my outburst.
Well it is almost two weeks until Election Day 2012. This is a really exciting time for me every two years, being as I’ve made my living for the last 17 years in Oklahoma politics.
Thinking back over these years my mind wanders back to President Bill Clinton’s re-election campaign in 1996. We didn’t have Facebook back then, but Okies did know how to use the telephone. I remember hanging up on so many self-proclaimed “Christians” who had no problem spreading lies, cursing and shouting hate-filled rants on the telephone. Back then most of the time I had no idea who was on the other end of the phone. Today these same type of people are on Facebook – many of them on my own friends’ list. But this time there is another disgusting trait many display – hate for the black man in the White House.
What really gets my gall up about so many of these Facebook friends is that one minute they’re posting beautiful pictures proclaiming their love for Christ and then the next minute they’re posting a link to some lie-filled, hate-filled, bigotry-filled post by someone like Rush Limbaugh (who flunked out of four colleges, failed in four marriages and was charged for doctor shopping for prescription drugs).
There is nothing Christ-like about spreading hate.
There is nothing Christ-like about spreading lies.
There is nothing Christ-like about being a hypocrite.
How is it that “Christians” are supporting a ticket that worships Ayn Rand, a self-avowed atheist, who hated the small, poor people? How is it that “Christians” are supporting a ticket that believes Corporations are people? How is it that “Christians” support these “corporate-people” who are destroying our home – Earth – that was given to us by the Creator?
I really don’t understand these people and it would probably be healthier for my attitude and health if these types of people just unfriended me (or I them) on Facebook. Because too many of their postings really send my blood pressure flying high.
If you believe Democrats are evil – then you believe that I am evil, you believe that my parents and grandparents were evil – and you are not the type of friends I wish to have.
You can debate philosophy and problems and solutions. But you cannot have a real debate with anyone who accepts fact as fiction and fiction as fact – it’s a total waste of time.
