Wherefore do the wicked live, become old, yea, are mighty in power? Their seed is established in their sight with them, and their offspring before their eyes.
Yesterday I posted a link to a tweet from a real honest-to-goodness reporter reacting to Ted Cruz' speech announcing his candidacy for the presidency. This was that tweet:
Bizarre to talk about how rights are God-made and not man-made in your speech announcing a POTUS bid? When Constitution was man-made?My brothers, be astonished and lay your hands upon your mouths. This is Calling Good Evil & Evil Good 101. If rights be man-made, let us simply call them laws. Rights as legislated, not as natural.

I came across this video yesterday.
"And you know that." Really? A man who believes that man is created in God's image believes that man's dignity comes not from God but from human consensus?
Make no mistake. We all worship a god. Moore, whether you like him or not, worships the God of Jesus Christ, of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, of the Bible. Cuomo lays out his priorities pretty straight-forwardly, if disingenuously. Your faith and my faith, sure, but we must all bow...before Our Country. The State is Cuomo's god, and any discussion of human rights must spring from the flowing teat of the State.
Never mind that we hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.
And now we are astonished, and lay our hands upon our mouths, because we see that the wicked prosper. And we know what happens then. Injustice. Oppression. Destruction. And finally, slavery.
Pray for mercy.
