Worshipping False Gods

I could hardly believe my ears when I heard there were actually real people in this country outraged that the President of the United States planned to communicate to young students.

At first I thought criticizing our President's intention to address the youngest among us, was a joke. But then I realized it is no joke; it is just a sad reality.

Another sad reality is that there are actually people in this country that refuse to think for themselves. They aren't what they say they are: followers of the Ten Commandments, the Constitution, and the teachings of the Bible.

Instead, they are worshippers of False Gods. They have been preached to for so long about blindly following that they have given up thinking for themselves. After all, ignorance is bliss. They've been taught that anyone who claims to be a Christian is good and therefore are given a pass to follow them.

If your religion teaches you to be a good and kind human being and to help others, you have received the right message. God is not telling anyone to be hateful and ignorant. Yet that is what is happening. Blind faith has led many to follow False Gods -- the God of the Almighty Dollar, the Gods of Hate and Discontent. Lest we forget the God of the Republican Party and the God of Fox News.

Just because these simpletons on radio and television claim to be Christians, doesn't mean they are, nor does their Christian proclamation give license for leadership.

Why would you relinquish your precious human right to think for yourself in favor of blindly following the likes of Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, Ann Coulter and all the others who make their living trying to influence others? I thought worshipping false idols was against your Christian faith?

These false idols were the same people that defended the former occupant of our White House, who is responsible for the deaths of tens of thousands of human beings in this country and beyond, for which George W. Bush sacrificed innocent American youths while lying to all of us. George Bush cast off the lives of thousands of our young sons and daughters; and you had no problem with that? But you don't want Barack Obama to speak to the youth about what is good and logical -- staying in school, and being a good student and citizen? Are you nuts?
