I believe the country has spoken through the election and that change is coming. I don't mean change in the economy, or the wars, or the energy sources. I mean change in the sense of what is right and what is wrong, of who gets a voice and who doesn't. When you open the door for sin to enter, it doesn't politely or timidly allow itself in. No, it explodes through with full force. What we barely tolerate today in our culture will be the norm in a few years. Things we couldn't fathom tolerating will become issues of major controversy in the near future.
As a parent, I am disappointed for my children and the fact that the road ahead will be so much harder for them than it was for me. I am spurred on to make sure they are prepared with the truth of the gospel so that they will be able to handle being different from the changing American culture.
Here is an excerpt from a thoughtful article on the current situation, highlighting where my heart is & was during this election:
Yet, the issues and the politics remain. Given the scale of the Democratic victory, the political landscape will be completely reshaped. The fight for the dignity and sanctity of unborn human beings has been set back by a great loss, and by the election of a President who has announced his intention to sign the Freedom of Choice Act into law. The struggle to protect marriage against its destruction by redefinition is now complicated by the election of a President who has declared his aim to repeal the Defense of Marriage Act. On issue after issue, we face a longer, harder, and more protracted struggle than ever before.
Still, we must press on as advocates for the unborn, for the elderly, for the infirm, and for the vulnerable. We must redouble our efforts to defend marriage and the integrity of the family. We must be vigilant to protect religious liberty and the freedom of the pulpit. We face awesome battles ahead.
