How To Get Mad...Or At Least Righteously Indignant!

By reading some of today's headlines, of course. All of these come from; you can click the hyperlinks if you want to read more.

In California, a kindergarten teacher had her students sign pledge cards in support of gays. The teacher was one Tara Miller, a teacher at the Faith Ringgold School of Arts and Science in Hayward. Even the school acknowledged that the exercise was inappropriate for kindergartners—and in California, that's saying something. Read this one here.

Continuing on the theme of moral perversion, a nudist colony in Florida has requested a clothing-optional polling site. Thankfully, the election supervisor says he has no plans to accommodate them; unfortunately, it's because he doesn't want to carve out any new precincts until after redistricting after the 2010 census. So much for standing on moral principle. Read this one here.

And, of course, prior to the big election, there are those who think America's election officials, already shouldering the great task of ensuring a fair and accurate vote count, are not doing enough to help non-English-speaking citizens vote. This may be one of the biggest reasons why English should be our official language. If you can't read the ballot in English, you should not be casting a vote. If you do not care enough to gain a basic grasp of our language, you do not care enough to be given a say in our leaders. Read this one here.

Those of us who claim to stand for biblical and patriotic values really need to be a bit more stirred up by these sorts of things. It should make us "full of righteous indignation," to use an older phrase, to see such moral depravity and such affronts to our American political system. Yet we so often just shrug our shoulders or quietly mumble, while doing nothing about it.

It's time we stood up and spoke—nay, proclaimed—biblical truth and common sense!
