Okay Readers . . .
we've got quite a little discussion going in the comments section of my "Highly Distracted" post about the elections.
One reader said . . .
"I believe we, as Christians will see many of our freedoms removed. This too will have lessons in it for me. We have been blessed in America, we don't want to see our freedoms curtailed."
Another reader asked . . .
"Can you comment on the freedoms you think will be taken away with another term for President Obama?
I think we all are so blessed to live in a country where everyone has a say and that we can openly discuss our differences without fear of punishment for our opinions but I do think we need to be informed. . . . do you think that President Obama is NOT a Christian? I never quite understand what people mean when they say that President Obama is not "God's best choice." He may have views that disagree with yours but I don't think that his religion is really much of an issue."
Readers . . .
. . . what do YOU think?
. . . what freedoms are you worried will get taken away with Obama in office?
. . . what are your biggest concerns about Obama being re-elected?
. . . what were your biggest concerns about Romney possibly becoming President?
. . . should the religious preference of a President be an issue?
(I realize that a lot of Christians did not vote for Romney because he is a Mormon.)
(I'm actually looking forward to my next coffee date with a friend,
where she is going to "school me" on why it is good that
Washington State legalized Marijuana for Recreational Use.
I don't think she'll convince me . . . but I am interested to hear her reasoning.)
I think that we can share, graciously, our differences of opinion.
I believe it is good for us to be able to verbalize our thoughts on tough issues.
But . . . let's all remember to "Play Nice".
