|I can do this again.|
I hate the word Left. I am not a Leftie. I am a patriotic American (born on Flag Day -which I share with Cheeto and my late husband was born on July 4). I love my country. It is a great country, and can be even greater ... but not with our current lack of leadership.
The Women's March on Washington was truly inspirational.
I want a leader, not a creepy tweeter!
Yes, I am liberal, and liberal means generous and sharing. I cannot imagine that a person of faith could be anything but a liberal. There is no doubt in my mind that Jesus would approve of this march -- remember his actions in the Temple?
I believe in capitalism but a compassionate capitalism where greed is largely non-existent. I believe in universal health care, the right to choose, a rude free press. I do not believe that I have right to force my religious beliefs on anyone else, so please check your religious beliefs at your door. No one is forcing you to marry someone of the same sex. I am a straight woman, but I see nothing wrong with two men or two women getting married. Rights are for all, and not for some.
Matthew 22:34-40 New Revised Standard Version (NRSV)
The Greatest Commandment
When the Pharisees heard that he had silenced the Sadducees, they gathered together, and one of them, a lawyer, asked him a question to test him. “Teacher, which commandment in the law is the greatest?” He said to him, “‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ This is the greatest and first commandment. And a second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.”
This is the end. Here are the posts in order.
