Another Slap In the Face

This is not a political blog.  That being said, I find that there are some things of which I must blog about.  The latest slap in the face to my Christian faith is another blasphemous play, Corpus Christi.  It is being presented by the Richmond Triangle Players.  The documentary film made about the play, Jesus Christ is shown passionately kissing His Apostles, performing the marriage of two homosexual men, and viciously striking a female actress among other obscenities.  Those who protest these types of plays are portrayed most unkindly.

And the New York Post reported Corpus Christi uses Gospel passages in a contrived way: ‘“Art Thou King of the queers?’ McNally’s Pontius Pilate character asks. Thou sayest,’ Joshua answers.”

Please don’t take offense.  I have gay friends.  I believe that they are loved by God just as I am loved by God.  I do not live their lives.  I do not answer for them to God.  Just as I don’t answer for someone who commits murder or rape.  I answer for me and what I do and have done.

That all being said, the issue is not with homosexuality, but rather with the disrespect and the lack of moral compass of the writers and producers of such an insult to the Christian religion.  I ask you, what would happen if the Muslim faith were portrayed in this fashion?  Christians have become the most persecuted people in the United States.  It saddens me that Christians have become the most persecuted people in the United States.

Nowhere in Christian history is Jesus found to be gay.  Nowhere in Christian history is Jesus found to strike another.  Nowhere in Christian history is Jesus seen kissing anyone passionately.

Is this type of entertainment necessary for our world today?

If anyone feels that they would like to do something about this play, here is a link to fill in a petition to have it stopped.

Blessed Christmas


Luke 2, 1:20

1 In those days a decree went out from Caesar Augustus that the whole world should be enrolled.  2 This was the first enrollment, when Quirinius was governor of Syria.  3 So all went to be enrolled, each to his own town.  4 And Joseph too went up from Galilee from the town of Nazareth to Judea, to the city of David that is called Bethlehem, because he was of the house and family of David, 5 to be enrolled with Mary, his betrothed, who was with child.  6 While they were there, the time came for her to have her child,7 and she gave birth to her firstborn son.  She wrapped him in swaddling clothes and laid him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn.

8 Now there were shepherds in that region living in the fields and keeping the night watch over their flock.  9 The angel of the Lord appeared to them and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were struck with great fear.  10 The angel said to them, “Do not be afraid; for behold, I proclaim to you good news of great joy that will be for all the people.  11 For today in the city of David, a savior has been born for you who is Messiah and Lord.  12 And this will be a sign for you: you will find an infant wrapped in swaddling clothes and lying in a manger.”  13 And suddenly there was a multitude of the heavenly host with the angel, praising God and saying:

14 “Glory to God in the highest and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests.”

15 When the angels went away from them to heaven, the shepherds said to one another, “Let us go, then, to Bethlehem to see this thing that has taken place, which the Lord has made known to us.”  16 So they went in haste and found Mary and Joseph, and the infant lying in the manger.  17 When they saw this, they made known the message that had been told them about this child.  18 All who heard it were amazed by what had been told them by the shepherds.  19 And Mary kept all these things, reflecting on them in her heart.  20 Then the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all they had heard and seen, just as it had been told to them.

I wish all of my family, friends, and online acquaintances a Very Merry Christmas.  I wish that the joy the Christ Child brings to us fills your hearts.  I wish you all love, hope, and peace this season and the rest of the year and that God blesses all of you with your needs and wants throughout the coming year.

I am celebrating with Gracie this Christmas Day.  We are on our own.  My daughter and her family are ill with the flu.  I have a terrible cold that brought on an asthma attack.  My youngest is celebrating with her in-laws.  My son and his family are healthy and celebrating at home in Miami.

The Latest Assault

Daily Prompt:  Interest

It is with great interest and sadness that I recall the terrible ordeal that has happened in Las Vegas this past weekend.  Interest because I just cannot imagine being pushed to the point of committing senseless murder.  In my mind, I have to believe that the man was sick.  There is no other explanation for his actions.  It is inconceivable to me that one’s life can have such little meaning so as to cause you to express your anger in this way.  I find I need an answer.

Or is it the work of the devil?  I believe he exists and he works tirelessly to corrupt our lives causing havoc and despair.  Is what so many have said true?  Is our country in a deluge of evil spirits?  Are the many visionaries right that we are in for a terrible chastisement because of our fondness for self-gratification and immorality? Is God losing patience with us?  I hope not.  I pray that He will continue to shed His light on us, to gently guide us to become the country we once were.

Satanic worship, blasphemes, the murder of innocent children, and discrimination have become commonplace in this country.  Respect for life has disappeared.  How much longer can we continue on this self-destructive path?  I worry for my grandchildren.  This country was founded on Christian principles.  It’s about time we get back to them because I am very afraid that if we don’t, we will cease to exist.
