The Bible tells us that we are all affected by the spiritual disease known as sin. Paul calls for us to come to our senses and escape the snare of the devil [2 Timothy 2:26] and to be transformed by the renewing of our minds by way of a relationship with Christ [Romans 12:2]. I know these things and yet I still find myself fascinated with what is happening to the minds of people here in America and around the world today.
What am I talking about? Check this out.
Apparently, Montgomery County, MD shut down a little girl’s lemonade stand because it was too close to a busy intersection. She was facing a $500 fine. They have since waived the fine because her lemonade stand was moved 100 feet from the intersection.
I don’t understand how this decision can be a “no-brainer” (pun intended) and yet we balk at the idea of actually NOT allowing an Islamic mosque to be built near Ground Zero.
The sour truth as it stands.
NOT OK: kids operating lemonade stands near busy intersections (which, to me, is a wise business decision)
QUITE OK: jihadists operating an Islamic Mosque right near Ground Zero (which, to me, is a slap to the face and an ensuing elbow from Islam and a knife in the back from our government to every American citizen, not to mention totally devoid of any kind of good sense and rationality)
I’m really so very glad that our police force and government officials are more worried about lemonade stands than Islamic mosques promoting hate and the usurping of our American government.
