1) The binder "controversy". At first I didn't understand and I thought it was a joke. I am still shaking my head that the press and radical feminists could make something out of the statement by Mitt Romney that he looked through "binders" of women's resumes to be sure to hire women for his administration in Massachusetts. Can the left truly be that desperate to smear Romney, to the point that they make no earthly sense? I mean, I don't know a person alive who did not understand what he meant by "binders of women" in the context of all he said. Having heard the story, who could construe it as anything other than good for women?
As my incredulous 18-year-old daughter said to me: "Where else would resumes be?"
Would it have been better if the resumes were in files or boxes? Would that have been less "hateful" toward women?
Is the Romney-hating left this far gone, this unhinged?
But then again, these are the Democrats -- who are not offended by true degraders of women such as Bill Clinton or any number of Kennedys. Those men can treat women like dirt, or, like Bill Maher, they can use shocking and filthy terms for women, and they get a pass. Why? Because those men worship at the altar of Abortion on Demand. That makes them champions of women. That's the formula.
But has any radical feminist every wondered why womanizing, objectifying, and misogynistic males love abortion so much? It really isn't hard to figure out why a cad might champion abortion more than would a noble, honorable man.
Anyway, the left can keep on making an issue out of "binders" as far as I am concerned, because that type of lunacy shows them to be more and more irrelevant.
2) I love this clergyman. He is courageous, and he exhorts black Christians to be loyal to Jesus Christ, not Barack Obama:
3) Oh my gosh, this is so funny. Trust me, you need to watch this to the end; you will be laughing and loving every minute! I adore our seminarians! Those of you who are not yet Catholic, what are you waiting for? We have so much fun!
4) Aaaaaaand... by way of utter contrast, we have these angry and seemingly miserable celebrity woman who think and vote with their "lady parts" -- but presumably only on the condition that their lady parts are objectified and sterile. Shiver. Does this attract anyone to their cause? Who would want to be like them? I honestly hope they can find peace with their own biology someday, and realize that they were "fearfully and wonderfully made" by a God who loves them. Ladies, this is no way to live.
Maybe I should spew out another rant after Monday night's debate?
6) A very important prayer request from a member of our Bubble family.
You all know "college student" (now graduated and known as "CS"), and you know of our contentious history on this blog and how often we have sparred. CS emailed me a few days ago, humbly asking for our prayers for her beloved father, who has just been diagnosed with cancer. Her father is a good family man -- married to her mother for 33 years, the proud father of two daughters -- and CS is understandably scared. She is also hopeful that her dad will be around for many more years to see her and her sister married and settled with families of their own. Please pray for a good prognosis for Michael. CS is eternally grateful for those prayers ascending to Heaven. She knows that God is working in all of this.
7) This orphan report is a rough one. The Lost Boys are the hardest to write about or even think about, so I will keep this portion of it brief. I wrote a post about Heath, Sasha, and Hanson here:
|Heath has over $21,000 in his grant! Money is not an issue!|
|Click my photo for more information!|
|Never mind my clothes, I am a boy! And I need saving!|
Please, read my post here, and spread the word as best you can. One person alone cannot save the Lost Boys. We really have to work together to get the word out to potential families.
In fact, we have seen what happens when we all work together to save a special needs orphan! Remember Malcolm?! His soon-to-be parents have touched down in Moscow within the past hour and will be meeting him for the first time this week! Praise God for this blessing. They still have a few months to go to bring him all the way home, but before long he will be an orphan no more, thanks in large part to you!
Have a great Sunday!
Thanks to Jen for hosting Quick Takes!
