Thus says the Lord: Stand by the roads, and look, and ask for the ancient paths, where the good way is;and walk in it, and find rest for your souls.
Seeing, and reading about what is transpiring in the wake of Prop 8, and the actions of those who are wreaking havoc against innocent church-goers, causes doubt to rise in the most optimistic soul.
It's all very confusing, because their hatred seems so misdirected. One wonders why they are not protesting outside the black churches, since a high per centage of those voting to stop gay marriages were black.
The hatred evidenced on many blogs is almost unbelievable, and it's directed at Christians, and conservatives in general. The hateful things that they continue to speak against Governor Palin is beyond despicable, and I think it is because she is a moral woman, with principles, and represents womanhood at it's finest--which really goes against the grain with them.
I don't know where it is leading, but I know that we have a genuine struggle on our hands, and it is not going to be easy to stand in the face of such evil. But stand we shall, because we do not want to lose sight of the ancient paths of goodness, where there is rest for our souls. There can be no compromise.
I have found that the greatest help in meeting any problem with decency and self-respect and whatever courage is demanded, is to know where you yourself stand. That is, to have in words what you believe and are acting from.
~William Faulkner (1897 - 1962)
