Not Buying

Debates are getting heated. Normally reasonable people are saying things that'd make a Nazi blush, (left or right, you choose). Shows continue to pit opposing views against each other, the louder the better. Sometimes its like watching pit bulls go at it. Enough already.

It is not because some people support peace and Islam that a man gunned down Army recruiters in Arkansas. It is not because some people want to end abortion or reign in the power of judges that a man killed a doctor in his church.

Can we stop sensationalizing everything in order to make a point? There're wives, children, family, and friends wrapped around those murders. It isn't just a headline: it's real hurt.

If anyone is responsible for these tragedies, it is the culture that has created demons out of anyone who disagrees with us. The media is responsible for selling all the shouting and barking, and we are responsible for buying it.


  1. So true!

    I left you another award (Honest Scrap) at my blog. Did you get the first one? It is in the archives if not. Thanks for all you do!

  2. Hi! What I did was right click on the award and copy. Then I paste to my pictures or a cd and load it from there. See if that works. Let me know! :)

  3. The people who advocate for "choice" in the extreme make us who care about all life, unborn and born, look like the villains. This impression needs to be continued to be fought against so that we can show people that we are actually the ones that care about every human life. Tiller was killing unborn babies up through the third trimester for almost any reason in the most heinous of ways. I do agree that the MSM needs to stop sensationalizing murders in order to gain support for their different movements or T.V. networks.
