I am sickened by our silence on Planned Parenthood and almost everything else.
Webster defines total commitment as the alignment of one's motives, resources, priorities and goals to accomplish a mission or to accomplish a specific task, or to follow a person.
How many goals, missions, tasks or people are we actually in total commitment to?
I would wager that most Americans aren't even in total commitment to their spouse.
When I tour with our AMERICAN History Museum, I show a document written to George Washington in the middle of the night after a crucial battle in the Revolutionary War. It was written by General Anthony Wayne and out of its four lines, one haunted me for quite sometime after I first read it.
"Your men (on the battlefield) behaved like men who are determined to be free."
That is total commitment.
I am so disturbed by Planned Parenthood selling body parts that I have lost sleep. I cannot imagine living the way these monstrously cold people do.
Chopping children up and then selling the parts. Read that line again.
They are chopping babies up and selling their parts.
What other time in American history would we have stood by quietly or expressing our 'outrage' in the same way and tones we express our opinion about a bad movie.
Are we at all disturbed?
When it first came out, many, if not most expressed shock but then what did we do?
Do you know why the progressive left is winning and fundamentally transforming the nation?
They have worked toward this goal for over 100 years. In the 1980s, groups like the Tides Foundation set goals and went all in. They have massed huge amounts of resources, placed people in the boardrooms of America's largest and most influential corporations. They control our universities and schools. They boycott any one who stands against them.
They work as a group and are totally committed to a secular nation that has very little to do with our founders or our founding ideas and documents.
Apparently their vision has very little to do with life that they don't approve of. Remember it was this week that General W. Clark called for interment camps for radical Americans.
If a person on the left was exposed like William Ayersin the 1970s or 80s, others took him in and rehabilitated him and his image so his work and influence could continue.
Martin Luther King and Gandhi were very clear. Non violent resistance does not work without boycotts. I know this to be true.
No one is afraid of you or your cute little belief. They know you won't do anything about it. Most of us profess belief but never put it into action. It's too hard.
It is why are churches are empty. They don't stand for anything. They never put belief into action.
Talk is cheap.
Do you know why Hollywood continues to insult you, entire news divisions leave you out at best or mock and ridicule your position and people rush to post rainbows with their company logo when the position is highly controversial?
Because you will not boycott. They know you will not stop buying, watching or using what they make.
Moreover, because we like to be for things and not against, we will never organize. Because we are capitalist, our millionaires and billionaires want a return on their investment. If it doesn't return something directly to them, they are not interested.
Fortune and sacred honor? There is no honor and lives mean next to nothing. ISIS is selling 9 year old girls into sexual slavery.
Nothing but fortune is left.
Money doesn't talk it screams!
When you finally choke off your support and do so in an organized and loud fashion, you will stop things like Planned Parenthood's abortion mill. But until we do, things will continue to get worse.
What is it you actually believe?
I believe all lives matter. I am totally committed to that cause.
When will the large majority of Christians stand for something, ANYTHING, and mean it.
We are 70% Christian as a nation.
How could we be funding this with our tax dollars? How can we be using these products?
Maybe Christianity in America is nothing more than something you say you are and then you go to service on Christmas. It's the least we can do.
How can we stand by while life is being destroyed and sold like scrap parts. While children are being sold into slavery?
This is obscene and evil.
I have never been for boycotts. But I also have never been in the minority opinion before. I have news for Christian AMERICA:
You are a stranger in your own land. You are no longer in charge.
We have effectively lost our second citizenship by remaining quiet and refusing to stand with the tactics of men like Gandhi and King. It makes us uncomfortable. Too much of a hassle or maybe we just don't like to cause trouble. Have you listened to the words that used to stir us? "In liberating strife." Strife is part of growth.
"Who more than self their country loved, and mercy more than life."
What is it you stand for, because I no longer recognize my country and I don't think anyone else knows what it stands for either. Except perhaps a growing evil.
I refuse to lose my first citizenship in His kingdom.
The time to stand is now.
