What will you remember about ’the Women’s March’ in DC, held on the unity… the ploy, the anger… against Trump, the occasion… to confront the loss of Hillary and demand to be heard or seen supporting causes of importance… like ‘Human Rights’ or personal opinion. This is how we will see: influence (when strived for) peddling pushed as being a ‘political agenda’ but Molly-coddled with an alternative nomenclature, what is sought after to be achieved by means of ‘confrontational’ policies and the convergence of bias oriented demonstrations, goals sought and disregard to effect on any save those seeking to lay claim for themselves.
We did vote in this country but the woman some voted for lost!
For example, to call this ‘Reproductive Rights… as by Hillary Clinton and Planned Parenthood’s Cecile Richards,’ is and was actually a forced mandate [well it was… Trump changed this with a Presidential Directive] to take taxes from all US taxpayers (taxation without representation) without thought to what we (individually think or believe) consider right or wrong. In other words, we all got to pay (everyone) for abortion… like it or not! Beyond the thought of American taxpayers being forced to pay here… is to realize we were also helping to pay for abortions throughout the world. See an article (through NPR) here.
Is there a difference to view here or are they both the same?
When one is forced to confront their own ideals of tolerance, as to what is or isn’t tolerance in and of itself, this is when we must confront ourselves. This will transcend the values we say we honor, and will honor, or find as being honorable… to a place where true worth of all religions, cultures and people are seen demonstrating peace and love toward one another. Somebody slap me… this is not the world we live in but an imaginary utopian vision [an ideal] of what we all could have if we would just quite trying to be superior to one another, right? Let’s wake up, turn on the TV and see the truth!
[The 2012 World Economic Forum annual gender gap study finds the 17 out of 18 worst performing nations, out of a total of 135 nations, are the following members of Organisation of Islamic Cooperation: Algeria, Jordan, Lebanon, (Nepal), Turkey, Oman, Egypt, Iran, Mali, Morocco, Côte d’Ivoire, Saudi Arabia, Syria, Chad, Pakistan and Yemen.]
One does not have to be a lawyer (here) when in the ‘Unity Principles [you can download it from this page]’ and under ‘Civil Rights’ is found…
We believe Civil Rights are our birthright, including voting rights1️⃣, freedom to worship without fear of intimidation or harassment2️⃣, freedom of speech, and protection for all citizens regardless of race, gender, age or disability. We believe it is time for an all-inclusive Equal Rights Amendment to the U.S. Constitution3️⃣.
1… As a US Veteran, I do not believe: someone that is not from this country (unless they become a naturalized citizen), visitors entering this country by Visa, or are here by virtue of any means outside the normal scope of legitimate access… should be granted the right to vote in any election in the US- as elections are a method used to ensure democracy is maintained by those so governed by its laws. Sure there are laws we may not like (individually), or the way the laws themselves are viewed, or even times we do not see an accountability by those in power of the ‘laws of the land’ when they are not being enforced but we still have a ‘right’ to address the issues and (hopefully) redress the wrongs we see committed.
2… As to worship (Strong’s number 07812), this incorporates a meaning much deeper to me (as there are also 56 different views [in Greek… and a list of them all] on worship) than: simply going to a building (be it a synagogue, church or mosque), to practice one’s faith, or to act on it from one’s belief. I see worship to be found in the activities of living as well… and when living ceases to be important to any one individual, or when it would be denied anyone, is when any religion is then thought to be ‘better’ than another. Let me explain this below, an abstract from here…
God demands a reverence for human life and forbids murder. Jesus enlarges this understanding of life to include more than physical life, proscribing angry words, insults, and name calling ( Matt 5:22 ), for these wound and kill the spirit, self-esteem, and well-being of another. The perpetrator becomes subject to judgment. The gospel of God extends a special invitation to the poor, the disabled, the weak, the oppressed, and the children, offering hope and new life.
[this is found under Commentary Critical… on Matt. 5:22, mentioned above]
Religion, according to the Bible, is neither a set of intellectual convictions nor a bundle of emotional feelings, but a compound of both, the former giving birth to the latter. Thus closely do the first two beatitudes cohere. Here is a link to the Beatitudes.
When this reconciliation actually takes place, and one has “peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ”–even “the peace of God which passeth all understanding”–the peace-receivers become transformed into peace-diffusers. God is thus seen reflected in them; and by the family likeness these peacemakers are recognized as the children of God.
But I say unto you that it is broken (the sixth commandment, for example, is broken only by the murderer) even by causeless anger, which is but hatred in the bud, as hatred is incipient murder ( 1 John 3:15 ); and if by the feelings, much more by those words in which all ill feeling, from the slightest to the most envenomed, are wont to be cast upon a brother: and just as there are gradations in human courts of judicature, and in the sentences which they pronounce according to the degrees of criminality, so will the judicial treatment of all the breakers of this commandment at the divine tribunal be according to their real criminality before the heart-searching Judge.” Oh, what holy teaching is this!
Exodus 34:14 KJV
14 For thou shalt worship no other god: for the LORD, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God:
3… since most of the rights spoken of, on the ‘Civil Rights’ page for the Women’s March, are actually listed as ‘Human Rights [Through the UN],’ then we should expect to see less persecution throughout the world today- sadly, we do not.
[An abstract from here is but one source of such angst, seen below]
To understand the vitriol one must acknowledge where it begins… in the US- this one article addresses the core of the issues. I do hope you’d realize ‘Islamophobic’ is a coined phrase… one created to ensure anyone speaking out would be labeled by it (shut down) and to give rise to the nature of its use as being the closest thing to reason for ‘political correctness’ in the first place.
[We were given a last minute gift by the ex-POTUS Obama… or should I say, the American taxpayers were yet raped again for a politicized and idealized goal or agenda- one not entirely American but international by scope. See it here. Is this really how women of the Democratic Party, or Democrats in general, see a positive change (for America) worth standing up for by such a protest or show of support? How about one view of tolerance seen here… happening under the tolerant watch of the highest Democrat in the land.]
