Things I think when I am grumpy.


Y'know, I'm doing the wrong thing in my life. People think that the very things that established and made Western civilization great like the historic Christian faith (NOT the crapfests like Westboro and feel-good megachurches that masquerade as Christian) and the bible are a load of dingo's kidneys, and have rejected them wholesale. Look how WONDERFUL our cultures are now! Rather than having objective standards, we now are ruled by the tyranny of the minority, whatever small percentage of the population that currently whines the loudest. But it's OK, because I can start reading auras, or doing tarot sessions for people, because folks eat that up, especially the rational, God-rejecting crowd that attend SF conventions. Crystal work? It's OK because people love it, it makes 'em feel good, and I can make it up as I go along. WOO HOO! Nothin' like having a plan! I might even make it on Coast to Coast!

SOMEBODY will be around after it all falls apart to pick up the pieces. Surely.

Well durrhhh! Not only do we ask "Who is without sin?" but also the corollary: "Who is without screw-up?" If we never made mistakes then what use would there be for the Scriptures? We require guidance because our steering has a tendency to be wobbly (and we have trouble reading maps).

This was a late-night screed, partially stemming from extended family drama. (We all need more of that, right?)

While I do not appreciate Francis Schaeffer's part in establishing the "religious right" as a Movement, his historical assessment of the basis of the West's greatness resting in "the Christian consensus" (not that everyone was Christian, but that most operated from a basic understanding of Biblical a ethos and morality.) is profound. We are adrift from any objective moral mooring. Europe and England have cast off the shackles of Biblical thinking, and float at the mercy of any multi-culti trend of the moment. We have a Muslim Congressman (who would scream "WALL OF SEPARATION" at the mention of vouchers for Christian schools) who is saying our public school model should be the Islamic madrassa.

Nature's vacuum abhorrence comes to mind.

Ah, mister, I know. It actually hurts, though not for me, for them. They are so very lost. I speak to them when I get the chance. I don't push so much as ask questions they might answer but will only truly answer in time for themselves. You would be amazed. Those people end up truly, deeply, liking me, respecting me... or they despise me with every breath in them when they realize what my seed has grown to. Pray for them, even, or especially, when you are grumpy.

Either that or give it all up, go for the big bucks, and create your own religion. If it is severe enough, weird enough, and you do it "correctly", you can make a ton of money, have all the women you could want, and be free to drive yourself to hell in the fattest limousine a liberal has ever dreamed of getting to hell's gates in.

When you are being fed the bread of life though, the choice... well, there isn't really a choice there. So, pray for them. :p

Ah me. Extended family dramas. Entertaining if it's Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor in "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf" (or Deborah Kerr and Hayley Mills in "The Chalk Garden"*). Otherwise it's just an extended excuse to eventually kiss and make up.

(*and yeah, I could've listed several more films, but it's still early in the morning here.)

When I get grumpy I usually go to YouTube and watch excerpts from "What's My Line" or "You Bet Your Life". Never fails to help.
