I’ve gone to a series of Bible Studies at the local Lutheran Church the past month. The pastor, in referring to how crazy our spending in America has become, noted we spend $40 billion a year on lawn care — as an example. (This is more than the Gross Domestic Product of the country of Vietnam!) While we’re in the pursuit of that “perfect green lawn” — people are, say, starving to death in the Third World… ISIS attacked Paris this week, and now the U.S. House of Representatives, for instance, is voting to keep Syrian refugees out for the time being. These desperate people, including a lot of kids, are fleeing constant terror in their country. And we’re going to turn our back on them? Yeah I’m sure that’s how Jesus would respond, huh… And speaking of “terror,” we kill more than 4,000 babies every day in their mothers’ wombs. I once told the Range News in Wilcox, Arizona, that we have “become our own worst terrorists”… Note: With the turmoil in Iraq, and then subsequently Syria, a vacuum was created for the rise of ISIS. I was just reading part of a book that correlated modern day America to the Biblical town of Nineveh. That is we are growing more and more gluttonous, as an example (about everything). The author said that if Iraq’s main export had been broccoli (instead of oil), he doubted we’d have staged a preemptive strike in that country.
