duggar-family-1-600x450I was reading an article today on CBSNews.com about the Duggar family.  The oldest Duggar son, Josh, and his wife Anna, are having their 3rd child, and made the comment that they, like Josh’s parents, will welcome as many children as God gives them.   The article was a positive one, but the comments on the article were absolutely jaw-dropping.  I was appalled at the hate coming from the readers regarding that one statement.

Here are just a few examples (others aren’t even fit to print):

“The baby will likely miscarry. It’s only going to get worse, and can’t they adopt and spare the mother needless risks for herself and the (hopefully makes it out alive and with no birth defects-addled) baby?:

“how much are we subsidizing this? more kids=more tax breaks=more money shoveled from those without children to people like this who won’t keep their hands out of my pockets. why should we pay for their private decisions?”

“They find more value in impregnating her until babies miscarry and/or she dies than anything else.”

“When is the next litter coming?”

“Obscene family. The more babies a woman has, the greater the risk – especially – as she gets older – for her body, and for the baby developing.  That’s not beautiful, that’s selfish and sick.”

Why are people so hateful?  What did the Duggar’s ever do to anyone?  They’re having a child, and they’re selfish, sick and obscene?  I do not understand this mindset.   Children are a joy and a gift from God.  Since when is it selfish and sick to want more than one child?

stethoscope-on-moneyI don’t hear those on the left speaking out against women on the public dole having one child after another.  I don’t see outrage from the left on the fact that 40% of children in the U.S. are born to a single parent.  Josh and Anna are 2 loving parents, raising their children to be good, law abiding, hard-working, responsible, Christian adults, and they’re the ones who are sick?  But having 6 children with multiple  fathers who are absent, and being solely dependent on the government to take care of the children is a situation that deserves our sympathy and hard-earned tax dollars?

The fact is this hate, in large part, is directed at the fact that the Duggars are Christians.  If it were Beyonce and Jay-Z having their 3rd child, would you hear the same outrage?   Do you hear anyone blasting Kris Kardashian for having 6 children?  The Duggars were slammed because they talked about God giving them their children.   The left apparently doesn’t believe those blessings come from God.

The left always claims that the government should stay out of the bedroom.  Yet they want the government to force businesses to provide free birth-control.  They want the government to force taxpayers to fund abortion clinics.  They push sex education in school at younger and younger ages.  Am I missing something?  That sure sounds like government in the bedroom to me.  And now they have a problem with a wholesome, hard-working family having 3 children?  Are child limits going to be their next mission?

Remember when President Clinton said he wanted abortions to be safe, legal and rare?  Well, someone didn’t get the message.  The left not only condones abortion, they promote it.  Who promotes MURDER?  Of course, it’s endorsed under the cover of “reproductive rights”, but endorsed nonetheless.

Dr. Kermit Gosnell is currently on trial for the murder of one adult patient and seven babies.  He not only murdered unborn babies, he murdered babies born as the result of a botched abortion….by snipping their spines with scissors!  Do you think those babies didn’t feel that pain??  And yet, not a word from the liberal media.  Those babies were slaughtered and nothing but silence from the left.  What is wrong with these people?

If they have so little regard for the murder of innocent babies, the most fragile among us, where do they draw the line?  Is it the elderly next?  The physically disabled?  The mentally disabled?   We already see medical reimbursement rates being cut, insurance premiums going up, and coverage lowered or dropped.  Doctors are leaving the practice, which will result in rationing of care.  Refusing to cover certain treatments for the elderly could be just around the corner, in order to save money.  Obama caused a controversy in 2010, when he answered a question at a town hall meeting, stating that an elderly woman (105), who received a pacemaker, possibly should have received a pill instead of surgery, based solely on her advanced age.  America, welcome to death panels.

Bottom line….if we as a nation, have lost all respect for life, our society is doomed.

This one got to me….very powerful.

A remarkable  story from a longtime D.C. political operative of just how personally moved Mitt Romney was following a campaign stop in Red Rocks Colorado where over 10,000 enthusiastic supporters greeted the man they hope will be the next President of the United States.

Got this feedback earlier today and thought you’d like to hear it.  You know, I’ve gone from just trying to defeat Obama to really trying to help Governor Romney be this country’s next president.  I’m really starting to believe there might be something very special about this man.  This took place out in Colorado.  Just a couple days ago.  Probably my favorite campaign trail story that’s come back my way so far this election.  Wish I had been there.  I’m going to try and get a little poetic on you here.  Hope I pull it off OK and do this story justice.  Feel free to help me out a bit in the telling.  I would be embarrassed for people to know just how bad my spelling really is.  And sadly, that’s not a joke.  -INSIDER

As the governor was en route to the amphitheatre they were told the crowd was showing “strong numbers”.  What greeted him was a lot more than just “strong numbers” though.  It was a massive wave of thousands and thousands of supporters.  Before going on the governor apparently peeked out a few times and was shaking his head in disbelief at just how many people were there to see him.  He was told by organizers up to a thousand more were turned away because there simply wasn’t any room left.  People said you could feel the size of the crowd under your feet backstage.  Somebody had passed out a ton of “thundersticks” and the people were banging them together and making this amazing rumbling noise.  There were some real veteran campaigners backstage and I’m told they were all blown away by this crowd in Colorado.  It really was like some big time rock show.  Just a huge response for the governor.

So Governor Romney goes onstage and gives his speech.  The crowd just totally embraces him.  From beginning to end.  Every word.  They are fired up. Loud.  Positive.  Cheering.  Just an amazing moment for the campaign.  Everybody backstage were all smiles and peeking out at all those people and shaking their heads.  This is the kind of moment in a campaign you never forget.  Ever.   Nobody who hasn’t experienced it can really understand this feeling.  You’re looking at a candidate being transformed right in front of your eyes into the next Leader of the Free World.  They go from being human into something just a bit more. It’s all those people.  That energy.  It kind of fills the candidate up and makes them bigger than life.  And you are watching it happen in real time.  Right then. 

The governor returns backstage and he is smiling and shaking hands, taking congratulations from everybody around him.  He’s saying how great it was.  Somebody yells out he’s going to win Colorado and the governor laughs and says he thinks so too.  And then something very interesting happens.  He moves away from the group of people just a bit.  Maybe ten or fifteen feet or so.  Just enough to have a little space to himself.  And enough people notice that the area gets a lot more quiet, and they are trying to watch the governor without looking like they are watching the governor.  They can all kind of tell something is happening right then.  It was described as something very peaceful and powerful that came over that backstage area for a moment.  And the governor, he lowers his head and his eyes shut tight and you could see him take a slow deep breath and then he lets it out and says quietly, but just loud enough for some to hear, “Lord, if this is your will, please help to make me worthy.  Please give me the strength Lord.”  And then his eyes open up, and he’s back to smiling and laughing and shaking hands and being the candidate once again.

I’m 100% convinced Mitt Romney was shaken to his soul right then and there.  I think at that moment it was sinking in he might really be the next American president, and it humbled him right to his core, in every nerve of his body.  And as he was saying that little prayer, you could hear the sound of thunder from all those thundersticks outside. Like this huge low rumble that just surrounded all of them at once.  A quiet little prayer, and the sound of thunder.

The sound of God.
