Informing Christians

Memorial Day Weekend
May 23 - 25, 2009

I wasn't going to write anything this weekend, because of the disgust that I felt for the right wing movement, with all that I have seen happen in these three years of activism work, having come to a proverbial head this past week. Actually, last night, I considered walking away from it all.

So many people are in this for the wrong reasons and are nothing more than backstabbing creeps, who would step on their own mother if she were the only means to reach the next step.

Then I saw this picture today, a picture of a soldier, bearing our burdens on his back. This made me think of Jesus Christ, who took our sins. Suddenly I felt like the wimps that so many creeps in this movement are. Cowering down causes a person to do what it takes to conform or to run.

That soldier does neither. Jesus does neither. And this gal, will do neither. I will fight this culture war with every ounce of my being. I don't care if I have to fight it alone. I  will not conform. I will not run. In memory of those who are at war for us right now and those who have died for us and in honor and glory to the One who fought the ultimate battle and won, Jesus Christ, I will not run. I am in this for the long haul!
