"When they hurled their insults at him, he did not retaliate; when he suffered, he made no threats. Instead, he entrusted himself to him who judges justly." 1 Peter 2:23
What are your thoughts on the new Health Care Plan that is being passed into law? Whatever side you are on, you will still remain my blogging friends! See Majority Leader Steny Hoyer in the first picture, giving a press conference today. Why is he looking so serious and sad? He is telling the media that members of congress who supported the new health care plan have been recieving threats, even death threats. One has had a brick thrown through her office window. Va. Congressman Tom Perreillo's brother had his gas line severed. The vandal thought it was the congressman's house, but accidentally got his brother's, instead. These people are so mad and agitated that they're even messing up their own plans of vengence. Some congressional members have even gotten threats in person! This is just amazing to me. Have these people all gone mad? Democracy is all about having passionate debates and stating your beliefs without fear of being hurt. It's about fair voting, and the most votes win. We may not like the outcome, but the majority rules. Better luck next time. Now the Capital Police are involved and ten members of Congress are under security protection. These trouble makers need to settle down, calm down, and take a deep breath. It's ironic to me that someone who cares so much about health care would want to make so many people in need of it.
"But the wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure; then peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere. Peacemakers who sow in peace raise a harvest of righteousness." James 3:17,18
