An Ugly Shell of Darkness??

On this phony “A Day without Women,” we will hear how women are unappreciated. One of the ways this is to be shown is to have women teachers strike. Women, who were once a child’s best advocate, are encouraged to forget children. This false use of women is repulsive. Of course, many women have already forgotten children.  The number of children aborted since 1973 have reached 59,115,995.

Typically, we hear a lot of political double talk about “speaking to the hearts and minds” of the American people, but in today world, it’s hard to speak to people’s hearts. The better and higher parts of us sometimes seem impenetrable, as if crusted over by an ugly oyster shell that no one chooses to open because we have become partners with the darkness inside. We have become partners in lying.

But this is a breathless darkness, and one cannot live without breath. This is the sort of darkness that will use us, and then turn on us.

In our shell we do not see, much less personally search for truth or right reason. Instead, we are satisfied with the blindness of following dim and weak political agendas. Maybe this is because we’ve always thought a certain way and don’t want to change it. Maybe it’s because truth, right reason, and common sense, threaten our life style or our past choices. Maybe we just hate others with courage enough to break out of their ugly, confining shells to return to brightness–and yes, even greatness.

Whatever the reason, this darkness, if not scooped away, will be catastrophic for our country and for us.

Fearlessness will be required.

And knowing their thoughts Jesus said to them, “Any kingdom divided against itself is laid waste; and any city or house divided against itself will not stand.” –Matthew 12:25
