Rape and God; race and Obama
As a descendant of three great-grandmothers who were victims of rape, I'm offended at the attitude that God played a positive role in the conceptions. It is disgusting, at best, and atrocious, and those who contend they believe and practice Christianity are as the Muslims who are terrorists.
For those who question my assertions, look at the physical appearance of many blacks who were slaves. Women who were slaves couldn't deny their masters access to their bodies. Many of the women had just reached puberty. Many whites still feel that God bestowed them as superior to all other humans. Science does not support the claim that some races are biologically superior or inferior to others.
Race is often confused with nationality. We must be careful and not forget the Nazi regime that claimed the Aryan race was pure and what happened. The Obama administration has done much to heal the animus against America.
The BBC polled 21 nations about the American election. All conceded that Obama has been good for the United States.

Appreciate the life Jesus has given you
Jesus Christ loves each and everyone of us. US is in his name. He died for all our sins. No matter your situation, please appreciate life and the one and only who gave that special gift to each and everyone of us.
Be glad you were born into this world. God does have a special plan for your life. Remember, precious baby Jesus was born in a manger and he is now our living King, greater than all mankind.
Some who are homeless may feel hopeless. No, it is only a temporary state. Soon, there will be eternal life. Wonderful to look onward and beyond your pain suffering and heartaches. Stay strong.
I was born at a Salvation Army Hospital that is still standing. Someday, in God's perfect timing, maybe they will have a birthday reunion to celebrate those still living and their moms and dads. Life is to be celebrated. Celebrate Jesus everyday, and appreciate the life he has given to you sacrificially from a true love for you.
I'm proud that I was born in West Virginia.
