Oh…you belong in that _____ box!

Over the weekend I was asked to call into a radio show and discuss the topic of Freedom of Speech, our first amendment right-which has got to be one of my favorite topics! (Although the 22nd amendment is appealing to me more and more-because that’s the one that limits the President to two terms-thank God right!!)

So after I hung up on the call, I started to realize I had yet to discuss one of my greatest concerns that I have noticed becoming quite the trend. Labeling. That’s right…..if you think “this way” you are “this.” The quick swift-let’s put you in a box labeled “THIS” approach! If you have a view other than “anything goes” you are a bigot in some way! We don’t care if your ethics, moral code, faith or religion says this “______”….if you don’t agree with us- ‘the majority’ -you are now labeled!

This way of thinking has SHUT DOWN free speech. This way of thinking has eliminated all conversation, dialogue and discussion.

I was recently on twitter (@conmomma)…..and I said something about our President that wasn’t supportive (if you know me that’s not a big surprise) and immediately I was sent a tweet that I am racist! Yep, I was told I was a racist because I think Obama is failing in many areas! This…this is a way to shut down everyone-throw em in the “racist” box! Ughhh!

If you oppose the president, you are racist! If you think the rioting and looting that took place in Ferguson was wrong-you’re a racist! If you are opposed to illegal immigration but support LEGAL immigration….you are a racist! If you prefer cream in your black coffee, you guessed it-you’re a “racist!”

It doesn’t stop there….oh no! If you support traditional marriage-you are homophobic! Who cares if you totally support Civil Unions, you believe homosexuals should be entitled to the same rights as heterosexuals….but you think that marriage (which is a religious sacrament) is between a man and a woman-well then you are thrown in the “homophobe” box!!

Oh let’s not stop here, we’re having too much fun now aren’t we!?

Oh….you support Israel?  You actually comprehend the fact that if there is a “two” state compromise, it would really end in a one state solution….because Israel would be no more, they would be wiped of the face of the earth! You understand that if Israel does not have the support of the United States it has a much slimmer chance of survival. “Oh…you stand with Israel….throw em in the “Islamophobia” box!”

Whaaaaaat??? You don’t support Hillary in 2016…..well you are a straight up misogynist! Yep, that’s right….you are a sexist and you hate women! No….who cares that Hillary takes money from countries that treat women as property…..if you don’t support her, you are trying to hold women down-you are the “glass ceiling” that must be destroyed!!! Yes…you guessed it-walk yourself over to the “sexist” box and jump in!

I could go on!

You see….this….this is destroying Free Speech!

I can honestly say I am none of these labels and I have been called all of the things mentioned. But I will not be labeled. My challenge is for you not to be labeled either. The next time someone tries to slap a label on you-challenge them! Ask the question why? If we are to really celebrate diversity, celebrate free speech, than it is hypocritical to only celebrate one train of thought. If we are to respect one another, than we must respect those who disagree. But allowing yourself to be classified, perpetuates the cycle.

No box for me….I am free.

Don’t be silent.

Hillary Hypocrisy 2
politics

You can’t support woman’s rights and support Hillary.

I am just going to come right out of the gate and say it: you CAN NOT be a feminist, champion woman’s rights, or equality for women and support Hillary as the 2016 Presidential Candidate. If you do support Hillary, you are straight up supporting misogyny. Now, if you hate women….by all means-join her campaign! Whooohoooo!

Hillary plans on running on women’s issues. Making “equal pay for women” and “women’s reproductive rights” her primary talking points to her campaign.

You see, I hate hypocrisy, I loath hypocrisy….I do….it literally grates every bone in my body. Mrs. Hillary is the reigning queen of hypocrisy….why you ask? Well, let me tell you.

As reported by the New York Times: “the ‘Bill, Hillary & Chelsea Clinton Foundation’ has accepted tens of millions of dollars in donations from Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Algeria and Brunei — all of which the State Department has faulted over their records on sex discrimination and other human-rights issues.”

Hillary preaches about equal pay for women here in America, and your right to have an abortion-while she takes millions…..did I say MILLIONS….from Middle Eastern countries that treat women as property. Women in Middle Eastern countries have little to NO rights at all! We’re talking- they can’t drive a car, vote, leave the house without their husband, and if they are raped-they often are charged with invoking the rape! So while Hillary trots about from podium to podium touting woman’s rights and women’s liberation, she is taking money from men that oppress women in ways you can’t even imagine!

Hmmmm…..now….if you ask me…..I’d say this is classic hypocrisy, this is hypocrisy at it’s purest form. Mrs. Clinton is a pro at this, and she’s great at convincing the uninformed voter that she is sooooo concerned about women…..but I don’t buy it, not for a second. Because I will forever be a believer in the classic concept of ACTIONS speaking much Louder than words.

(I’d also add that for Mrs. Clinton to take money from foreign countries while Secretary of the United States…is a major conflict of interest! That be like a referee taking money from a team he is refereeing! Does that sound ethical to you???)

Now, if Hillary taking money from heads of countries that treat women like animals isn’t enough to sway you….perhaps pedophilia will. What?!!! Instead of speaking up and confronting her hubby- Mrs. Clinton looked the other way- when Bill would hang out with Jefferey Epstein-a convicted pedophile. Bill and Jefferey would often take trips together to Epstein’s Orgy Island. There are claims that Epstein had sex slaves as young as 12yrs old.  Sick…right? I mean, I am a strong woman….I would no way in hell put up with that crap from my husband! No way in hell! But no….Hillary, just ignored it. That’s not strength…that’s a coward. Worse….not calling it out and putting an end to it goes beyond being a coward…it is in reality condoning the mistreatment and sexual abuse of women. She has said before she “can’t control Bill.” No, she can’t…but she could leave his ass and go to bat for the victims! She wouldn’t do that though….because her eyes are set on the White House and divorce wouldn’t be appealing for a presidential candidate.

You see Hillary is pro Hillary, she’s not pro woman.

No….. You can’t support Hillary and support Women’s rights….if you do….well…..I guess you’d be a hypocrite.

Monsters

Just recently, my three year old son started to talk about Monsters. Though I closely monitor everything he watches….somehow he got wind of monsters and won’t let up. “No there are no monsters, they are just part of your imagination…they aren’t real, ” I find myself often uttering. My 18 month old daughter though, has not been introduced to the concept of monsters, and in her world….they simply don’t exist….yet.

I have found that this mindset continues on into adulthood….those who believe in monsters and those who don’t…that is until they encounter one first hand. Now, I am not talking big hair goons with four arms and one eyeball…..I am talking evil. Yes, evil. I have discovered that many think if they don’t talk about evil, or acknowledge it, it’ll just go away. It’s like when my daughter covers her eyes with here hands and “poof” I am not there…in her mind -I have disappeared! But I didn’t disappear, I am still there. Likewise, evil is still present…whether one chooses to acknowledge it or not.

I am not saying evil needs to be the topic of conversation at every meal, but there must be discussion on how to combat evil….because… like it or not….evil doesn’t let up…it persists until YOU do something to stop it. Yes, I said YOU….because you are responsible for stopping it or not. One of the most honest quotes I have ever heard is by German theologian- Dietrich Bonhoeffer: “Silence in the face of evil, is evil itself: God will not hold us guiltless. Not to speak is to speak, not to act is to act.”

This ignorance to evil, has almost become trendy even fashionable. I am currently witnessing this from our president with his approach to all our foreign policy. This idea that we can all gather together around the campfire and sing “Kumbaya” with our enemies, is baffling to me. I don’t get it. I also don’t get it when I see that popular “coexist” bumper sticker. I smirk, shake my head and think-that person is straight up ignorant. “Oh come on, how could you say that” you might say!?? I say it quite easily actually….because I know evil exists. I also know, you don’t coexist with evil, you don’t hold evils hand, rub it’s back and wish for change. No….you come against evil! You, give evil no place to breed, fester and grow….you destroy evil….and if it crawls back from the dead, you drive it back into the ground with ten times more fierceness than you did before….until that evil is no more.

It takes effort and dedication to accomplish this, but I don’t know who came up with the belief that life was supposed to be “easy.” This notion that we are here for a short time so let’s just go along to get along….

I see it differently. I believe that we were created and designed with purpose for a specific reason. To be a light. To shine light on darkness and to fight against evil. I believe this is the ONLY way to preserve good. We are to be vigilant and on guard and most importantly, not deceived. Evil takes many shapes and forms….but it’s soul purpose is to steal, kill and destroy.

Wow….intense right….yes, it is….but I know that Good triumphs over evil in the end. Our job is to be bold, unafraid, and to live our life with purpose….not for pleasure. The only way to preserve good here on this earth is to stand up to tyranny. The responsibility of our children’s future rests on our shoulders. I see the monsters….but if God is for me, who can be against me.

Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good Romans 12:21

Christianity, Clean and Clear, Jazz Jennings, Planet Fitness, Transgender

#Transgender from a #Christian perspective….

I saw this advertisement by Clean and Clear, and it left me confused. Being a mom in these times is not easy. Anything goes! If you have an opinion or a thought that is different than what the main stream media would suggest, you are seen as hateful or bigoted. I am neither hateful or bigoted, but I am confused.

This ad features Jazz Jennings, a transgendered teenager. She claims that she is a girl, trapped in a boys body. Now she is living her life as a girl. Watch:

Between this ad and Planet Fitness (a couple weeks ago) revoking a woman’s membership because she felt uncomfortable in the gym’s locker room with a transgender -Carlotta Sklodowska- a man who is living her life as a woman…I am now even more confused.

 . transgender

One half of One percent of the population is said to identify with being transgendered, but with the media these days….you’d think half the population was!

Geeeez, how am I to process this stuff….and then how am I to explain this to my kids when they are older?

Here’s what I know:

“So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.”      Genesis 1:27. There are XX Chromosomes making you a woman and there are XY Chromosomes making you a male. God designed us in HIS image. I also believe that there are no exceptions to HIS design. His design is perfect, because HE is perfect.

I also know this:

“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart” Jeremiah 1:5. God knows us. He knew us before he created us. He desires a relationship with us. He also says “if we draw near to Him, He will draw near to us.” It is not about how we “feel” or how we “see” our selves-it is rather about how God sees us. How does God see you? You can know how God sees you by creating and forming a relationship with Him.

“I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.” Psalm 139:14. God’s works ARE wonderful, and His creation of humanity is His masterpiece. Regardless of how you “feel,” God made you wonderful and there is no confusion in God.

“For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace.” 1 Corinthians 14:33.

Is it possible to go through periods of questioning our sexuality….yes, of course….but we are also called to “demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.” 2 Corinthians 10:5. Thoughts can get out of control…if we allow them to. That’s why we take our thoughts captive and line them up with what God’s word says.

Here’s what I am trying to say. If you want to really know yourself, know who you are called to be, know who you were created to be….seek a relationship with God. In that relationship, you will find who God has called you to be. This world, is a crazy place….without God, we really are lost….and we’ll try to identify ourselves through feelings….but feelings don’t last, only God’s love does….and that can be found in a relationship with Him.

The world would love to quickly tell you Who you are, but the truth of who you are is found in God.

There’s no such thing as a secret….shhhhh

Ok by now…everyone and there mom has heard that something has happened with Hillary and her emails. What the heck is going on right!?

All I gotta say is thank God for people like Representative Trey Gowdy for being persistent on getting the truth out of what happened with Benghazi, or else this would have never turned up!! And yes, trust me it’s gotta be so annoying for those conducting the hearings to constantly hear “Benghazi is overplayed”….but….ummmm dirt keeps coming up with Benghazi….so if you keep digging and digging and digging and more dirt, well ya keep digging till there’s no more “dirt” and you have ANSWERS!

But……Ohhhh was there DIRT this week!

Hillary…..oh Hillary. If turning a blind eye to your husband running around with a convicted pedophile wasn’t enough (ummm talk about misogyny right?! Aren’t you FOR women??) or taking money -a lot of money-from foreign countries while Secretary of State (such a conflict of interest!), or letting 4 Americans die-because it would look bad on the re-election of Barry (because terrorism was supposed to be “dead.”) you go and override a government mandate by conducting governmental business on private email accounts….but to top it off, you use private servers as well.

I’ll admit I was amused when your aids said you weren’t so savvy and that you didn’t know computers that well and that’s why you did it….but, using private email and servers….is  an even more confusing process. Then to hear you say you were releasing your private emails for the world to read on twitter appeared to be so thoughtful right?IMG_4546

But my question is….if you are releasing your private emails….why have them be private in the first place? Why go to the trouble of having private servers set up in your home? Who’s to say just “what” emails you release and what emails you don’t release to the public? I am assuming you make the call on that right? You claim transparency….but isn’t privacy the opposite? You went to great lengths to be private didn’t you. Which leads to the obvious…you are hiding things…

I have known for a while what you are hiding….but it’s just a matter of time till everyone knows….

Truth will ALWAYS win.

The guys that caved to Obama’s #Amnesty

For a brief……very brief moment, I was proud of our congress today as they welcomed a true leader Mr. Benjamin Netanyahu. But, shortly after we heard Netanyahu give a very moving and historic speech, I was reminded of why we sooooo need term limits!

So there’s been this back and forth over Obama’s Amnesty. You know the unconstitutional executive order he gave a few months ago without going through congress, granting amnesty to millions of illegals. Who cares about securing the borders….let’s just let em all in-terrorist and all, who cares about those going about it the lawful way…..whooooohooooo! Ya…that order….remember it? Well no legislation had been passed on that order….that is until today. Our House of Representatives caved, because there was the “threat” of shutting down the Department of Homeland Security unless the bill was passed. (Which is a whole other story in itself….I mean it’s like we have mobsters running things over there! I threaten you with this, unless you do this…..ughhh….I mean come on!)

The House passed the “clean” DHS Bill so the Department of Homeland Security wouldn’t shut down…..and now Obama’s Amnesty is going to be signed by the King himself.

I honestly want to know what happened to our Constitutional Republic?? Anybody seen it…..anybody??

Here is a list of the guys in suits that passed this insane bill….those who caved under pressure to his Majesty, If your rep isn’t on here…..be proud, because they just might have a pair!
