I’m not immune to being sucked into these delightful conversations, so don’t expect a tirade here. Yet it is the human itch to race towards judgment and debate built on foundations of very loose footing that continually feeds this political propaganda machine. The sad attempt to emulsify the oil of the divine within the very shallow waters of political agendas is a win in the insanity column. Yes, I believe God has given some people a gift of leadership and governing that is more than likely hampered by their free will to function for our betterment in their vocations. Here’s a surprise…God is not a republican, a democrat, an independent, or represented by the Tea Party. God is neither defined by the abortion or welfare issues polarizing our contentious two party system. God is patient and praying we can compromise our selfish inspirations and simply choose to maintain the dignity He breathed within each of us. God has written His laws of love on each heart yet we seem to prefer a personal space that makes reading the love of our neighbor intentionally out of focus. Maybe it’s just me but I never understood the party atmosphere of the RNC or DNC. Why America strives to turn everything into Super Bowl Sunday that vapidly honors God and our hopes with rhetoric is embarrassing. Are we really that gullible? We the people deserve better than this. God certainly deserves better than this. Our children are following our farsightedness that blurs the line between licensure and freedom. Our nation is hell-bent on determining what is fair at the cost of abandoning God. If we are courageous we would challenge ourselves to act first in a way that honors God. We would dare to love God through our neighbor. We would put the horse before the cart, and allow love’s true sacrificial intention to drive both religion and politics. Religion and politics must admit what it already knows – without love it has nothing. United States needs to grow up from its regressed adolescence and realize that liberty is attained in gratitude of the freedoms that draw us closer to the breath that first gave us life.
