Child abuse

A new California law requires teaching children to treat others with dignity and respect even if the others are gay or transgender. One acquaintance who teaches considers the requirement child abuse because it contradicts her religious beliefs. I believe that the opposite is then also true, forcing children to memorize and repeat the Bible is then also child abuse if the child and his/her parents hold different views.

Pro-life?

Are you pro-life and want to reduce the number of abortions, particularly among the poor? Children are expensive. Some abortions are performed because the mothers cannot afford to raise a child. Therefore, I suggest you support a guaranteed annual income so that the number of poor is drastically reduced. Less poverty will lead to fewer abortions, IMHO.

A matter of faith

For some people, politics is a religion. For others, religion and politics are one. Here in Utah, Republican is the party of God. I suspect that is also true in Alabama where Roy Moore enjoys wide support.

Donald Trump, in his capacity as the Prince of Lies, has taken advantage of the marriage of religion and politics currently in this country. The politicians and pundits who repeat his lies are devils and demons in disguise.

God’s law

So Help Me God: The Ten Commandments, Judicial Tyranny, and the Battle for Religious Freedom by Roy Moore with John Perry. Sharia is God’s law from the Koran as interpreted by men. Roy Moore, Republican, is a candidate for the US Senate from Alabama. He was chief justice of the Alabama Supreme Court and was removed twice for putting his interpretation of God’s law from the Bible ahead of his duty to obey US laws as interpreted by US courts. He swore to enforce the US and Alabama Constitutions when he was sworn into office and he then decided to violate that oath of office because of his religious convictions. He was rightly removed from office. If he is elected to the US Senate in December, I doubt that he can swear to uphold the US Constitution if he puts his interpretation of the Bible ahead of the Constitution.

Love thy brother

By some counts, there are 27,000 to 32,000 different denominations of Christianity. Way too many in my opinion. Also in my opinion, the true test of being a Christian is whether you love your brother as yourself or not. I believe that actions speak louder than words. If you don’t act as a Christian toward the poor and unfortunate, then you are not a Christian, no matter what you claim.
