So Now You’re Mad

By and via Vanessa Johnson Butler...

“IF ONLY THOSE WHO SEEM TO BE SO MAD AT PRESIDENT OBAMA WOULD READ THIS AND REFLECT A MOMENT, THEY MIGHT SAY:
Hmmmmmmmmmm… YOU MIGHT BE RIGHT!!………

Now, since Obama’s regime, all of a sudden, folks have gotten mad, and want to take America Back…BACK TO WHAT/WHERE is my question?

After The 8 Years Of The Bush/Cheney Disaster, Now You Get Mad?

You didn’t get mad when the Supreme Court stopped a legal recount and appointed a President.

You didn’t get mad when Cheney allowed Energy company officials to dictate Energy policy and push us to invade Iraq.
You didn’t get mad when we illegally invaded a country that posed no threat to us.

You didn’t get mad when we spent over 800 billion (and counting) on said illegal war.

You didn’t get mad when Bush borrowed more money from foreign sources than the previous 42 Presidents combined.

You didn’t get mad when over 10 billion dollars in cash just disappeared in Iraq.

You didn’t get mad when Bush embraced trade and outsourcing policies that shipped 6 million American jobs out of the country.

You didn’t get mad when they didn’t catch Bin Laden.

You didn’t get mad when Bush ran up 10 trillion dollars in combined budget and current account deficits.

You didn’t get mad when you saw the horrible conditions at Walter Reed.

You didn’t get mad when we let a major US city, New Orleans, drown.

You didn’t get mad when we gave people who had more money than they could spend, the 1%, over a trillion dollars in tax breaks.

You didn’t get mad with the worst 8 years of job creations in several decades.

You didn’t get mad when over 200,000 US Citizens lost their lives because they had no health insurance.

You didn’t get mad when lack of oversight and regulations from the Bush Administration caused US Citizens to lose 12 trillion dollars in investments, retirement, and home values.

You finally got mad when a black man was elected President and decided that people in America deserved the right to see a doctor if they are sick. Yes, illegal wars, lies, corruption, torture, job losses by the millions, stealing your tax dollars to make the rich richer, and the worst economic disaster since 1929 are all okay with you, but helping fellow Americans who are sick…

PS. This one definitely needs to be circulated just for a reminder sake!”

“SACRED” CHARACTER OF GENDER

THE “SACRED” CHARACTER OF GENDER
by Fr. Richard Rohr

Of course, we are not first of all talking about individual women and men, but what Eastern philosophy has always called yin and yang, or the female and male principles or energies. Sometimes women represent very strong male (yang) energy and sometimes men represent very strong female (yin) energy. And we all know people who seem to represent the best or the worst of both!

Then along come gay, lesbian, eunuch, hermaphrodite, and transgender people, who only in our lifetime have become visible or publicly acknowledged. Do they reveal the sacred? If so, how? If we do not recognize the obvious sacred in the foundational male and female gender itself, it will be almost impossible to find anything sacred about these constant and universal surprises of God. We are usually scandalized or disappointed instead. Clearly the Bible was trying to expand our notion of either/or gender, and even name some kind of third gender as sacred: “To the eunuchs who cling to my covenant . . . I will give a monument and name better than the sons and daughters. I will give them an everlasting name that shall never be effaced” (Isaiah 56:4-5).

From “What Do We Mean by the ‘Sacred’ Character of Gender?”
Radical Grace, Winter 2011, Vol. 24, No. 1,
The Sacred Feminine, The Sacred Masculine

The commandments, “You shall not commit adultery; You shall not murder; You shall not steal; You shall not covet,” and any other commandment, are summed up in this word, “Love your neighbor as yourself.”
– Romans 13:9

I object to violence because when it appears to do good, the good is only temporary — the evil it does is permanent.
– Mahatma Gandhi

In many parts of the world the people are searching for a solution which would link the two basic values: peace and justice. The two are like bread and salt for mankind.
– Lech Walesa
