Subject: Fw: Fwd: : A Little Sanity Please!

Apparently the White House referred to
Christmas Trees as Holiday Trees for the
first time which prompted CBS presenter,
Steven Levy, to write this piece.

A little
sanity please…

The
following was written by Steven Levy and
recited by him on CBS Sunday Morning
Commentary.

My confession:

I don’t like
getting pushed around for being a Jew,
and I don’t think Christians like
getting pushed around for being
Christians. I think people who believe
in God are sick and tired of getting
pushed around, period. I have no idea
where the concept came from, that
America is an explicitly atheist
country. I can’t find it in the
Constitution and I don’t like it being
shoved down my throat…

Or maybe I can put
it another way: where did the idea
come from that we should worship
celebrities and we aren’t allowed to
worship God as we understand Him? I
guess that’s a sign that I’m getting
old, too. But there are a lot of us
who are wondering where these
celebrities came from and where the
America we knew went to.

In light of the
many jokes we send to one another for
a laugh, this is a little different:
This is not intended to be a joke;
it’s not funny, it’s intended to get
you thinking.

In
light of recent events… terrorists
attack, school shootings, etc.. I think
it started when Madeleine Murray O’Hare
(she was murdered, her body found a few
years ago) complained she didn’t want
prayer in our schools, and we said OK.
Then someone said you better not read
the Bible in school… The Bible says
thou shalt not kill; thou shalt not
steal, and love your neighbor as
yourself. And we said OK.

Then Dr. Steven
Benjamin Spock said we shouldn’t spank
our children when they misbehave,
because their little personalities
would be warped and we might damage
their self-esteem (Dr. Spock’s son
committed suicide). We said an expert
should know what he’s talking about..
And we said okay..

Now we’re asking
ourselves why our children have no
conscience, why they don’t know right
from wrong, and why it doesn’t bother
them to kill strangers, their
classmates, and themselves.

Probably, if we
think about it long and hard enough,
we can figure it out. I think it has a
great deal to do with ‘WE REAP WHAT WE
SOW.’

Funny how simple
it is for people to trash God and then
wonder why the world’s going to hell.
Funny how we believe what the
newspapers say, but question what the
Bible says. Funny how you can send
‘jokes’ through e-mail and they spread
like wildfire, but when you start
sending messages regarding the Lord,
people think twice about sharing.
Funny how lewd, crude, vulgar and
obscene articles pass freely through
cyberspace, but public discussion of
God is suppressed in the school and
workplace.

Are you laughing
yet?


Funny
how when you forward this message, you
will not send it to many on your address
list because you’re not sure what they
believe, or what they will think of you
for sending it.

Funny how we can
be more worried about what other
people think of us than what God
thinks of us.

Pass it on if you
think it has merit.

If not, then just discard it… no one
will know you did. But, if you discard
this thought process, don’t sit back
and complain about what bad shape the
world is in.
