It seems lately that some news headlines should not be news at all.
One of the more obvious examples is the Lindsay Lohan saga.
For the most part, editors of news outlets must think she is on par with the President of the United States.
Her antics are not worse than anyone else on a downward spiral, yet, for some reason, they report her time in jail (or not) as if the world depends on it.
Another thing I have noticed lately is how hard the liberal press is trying to discredit conservative candidates who are new to the scene.
They are, in a way, trying to “Palin-ize” anyone endorsed by the TEA Party as if they should only be the butt of a late night television joke.
One commercial that I saw, reported on by Fox News, (the only news channel that reports from the conservative side), showed how a gubernatorial candidate in New York, was being smeared by his liberal opponent for believing that rape victims should be forced to deliver their babies.
Now, at first, that sounds like a horribly insensitive position.
Hasn’t that woman endured enough?…one might think.
Yet the fact is, there are two victims in every rape that results in a pregnancy; the woman and the unborn child.
For some reason, this commercial dismisses that unborn child and forgets that they too are victims.
They were brought into this world through violence, not love.
I found this web link below, where numerous people, conceived in rape, got together to discuss their philosophy of life, it gives one a slightly different perspective on the subject.
Most liberals would not search for this side of the story, but I challenge them to consider it.
In the book of Job Chapter 19:21-22, Job laments those around him (like news reporters) that are badgering him.
Pity me, pity me, O you my friends,
for the hand of God has struck me!
Why do you hound me as though you were divine,
and insatiably prey upon me?
When Job calls his “friends” out, for acting as if they were “divine” it reminded me of those that are calling out new TEA Party endorsed conservatives being hounded for their socially conservative views.
News reporters, (and bloggers) are far from perfect.
I have a piece of advise for those candidates.
Do what Job did in the verses that followed.
Oh, would that my words were written down!
Would that they were inscribed in a record:
That with an iron chisel and with lead
they were cut in the rock forever!
But as for me, I know that my Vindicator lives,
and that he will at last stand forth upon the dust;
When a conservative candidate goes on record for a socially conservative belief, such as his stance on Life, the best thing he can do is take ownership of it, like Job did.
Tell reporters to take a chisel and hammer it right into your forehead.
God the Vindicator will take care of the rest.
That way there is no doubt about where you stand.
As for me, I too believe that unborn children, no matter how they are conceived, deserve a chance at life.
How do two wrongs make things right?
And just so that you know I am pro-woman, I still believe abortion is OK under two conditions.
1. When it is needed to save the life of the baby.
2. When the child is the cause of the pregnancy (concept borrowed from Sarah Palin).
Chisel that on my forehead.
