The State is Responsible

I am never up on the news. We haven't had a TV since before 9/11 so I miss quite a bit. I practically never click on Yahoo or Google bites that are ready and waiting for you every morning. My husband loves talk radio but I think there is enough talking going on around me that I don't need to plug something in to hear more, know what I mean? I do get a Sunday paper but only for the coupons! I just don't care to hear from any of these sources.

For three reasons.

1. I'm just not that interested in politics (I know, I know, they affect us greatly. I feel comfortable letting my husband making the decisions for us. Mostly, he decides, I vote. 'Course, I do have an opinion at times and he never forces me to choose his side, okay? So don't worry about any of that. He's much more up on what's going on, cares more and I trust his judgement.)

2. We all know that the media is sending its own message. Whatever they want people to hear, they hear.

3. I've got lots of other things to worry about than what people on the other side of the world are doing.

I hope this doesn't sound crass or uncaring or like I stick my head in the sand because I don't. There are things that I really care about. Parenting issues are a big one.

I can't believe what's going on in the world when I finally do hear a tidbit from somewhere. It's shocking. Do people really have so little faith in themselves as parents or faith in God to teach you to parent that they rely on the state? I just don't understand how this can happen. I could quote a billion and one Bible verses here to expose what is going on in Sweden. But, I am guessing anyone reading this blog knows them. And why this is wrong.

If God is for us, who can be against us? Romans 8:31

I too try to avoid the news as much as possible. It puts me in the wrong state of mind for doing my daily duties. Plus I have these wonderful neighbors call me if there is an important weather statement is issued. :)

Me too don't like the news on television or radio. But then lately i realize that I have to listen to it because sometimes it has something to do with my sisters and brothers there. Lol. But the other news about politics, I don't like it at all.

psst: That's why I got C+ on my politic class at college. Lol

I so agree...I don't do politics either..its tricky and no one is perfect! I don't watch much TV either though we do have one.

If we have God who can be agaist us! Romans well stated!
