You know the kind. US Solider comes home for Christmas and surprises their children stories. Makes ya get a tear in your eye, and everyone says “Awwww! She gets to see her children for Christmas. Thank you Almighty Federal Government!”
My buddy Big Will, from STOP The ACLU has been bringing these stories to us…
A little more than a day earlier, she left her National Guard unit in Iraq for an unexpected two-week Christmas leave.
As they waited out of sight, Principal Mark Marney walked into Susan McCray’s Spanish class and announced he had an early Christmas present for one of her students. The teens all looked toward the door as Peltier timidly walked in and scanned the room for her son, Michael Aspen. She quickly spotted him on the far side of the room and hurried toward him as her eyes filled with tears. The 16-year-old looked stunned and didn’t say a word. “You don’t have to cry in front of everybody,” she said. “I will.”
And it goes on to detail how she did this with her other two children. Now, I’m about to say something a lot of you aren’t going to like.
What kind of Government would force allow a woman to be away from her children? Think about it. I hear from my “Manufactured Right” friends all day long, how America is a county that was founded, and still believe’s in it’s Judeo Christian values. How is the practice of sending Mothers away from their children, Christian? In fact, it’s as Un-Christian as it gets.
We are coming up on the day we celebrate our Saviour’s birth. And through Christ Jesus life, who was the person beside him, that entire time? That’s right, the Blessed Mother. Do you think the Holy Queen herself, would be ok with what the Government is doing? Or, for my Evangelical friends, do you think “Jesus in you heart” would be ok with this? I highly doubt it.
“But she volunteered and she’s a Great American“. What if this woman doesn’t come back from Iraq? “But she volunteered to die for your freedom“. And her children? “I’m sure they are Proud of their Mother for being the Patriotic American she was. For you to say other wise, makes you a Liberal and you don’t the support the troops. And remember, she volunteered”…
No it doesn’t. Makes me a human being, who is concerned that we have people in this “Christian Country” cheering for the Federal Government to take this woman away from her gift’s from God. All the more reason, why I’m a Humble (pride is a sin) Catholic, who will pray that this Nonsense will stop.
