My confession:

A friend of mine sent me this article. MMmmm.. yes..
Apparently the White House
referred to Christmas Trees as Holiday Trees for the first
time this year which prompted CBS presenter,
Steven Levy, to present this piece which I would like to
share with you. I think it applies just as much to many

countries as it does to America.

The following was written by Steven
Levy and recited by him on CBS Sunday Morning

My confession:

I don’t like getting pushed around
for being a Jew, and I don’t think Christians like
getting pushed around for being Christians. I think people
who believe in God are sick and tired of getting pushed
period. I have no idea where the concept came from, that
America is an explicitly atheist country. I can’t find
it in the Constitution and I don’t like it being shoved
down my throat…

Or maybe I can put it another way:
where did the idea come from that we should worship
celebrities and we aren’t allowed to worship God as we
understand Him? I guess that’s a sign that I’m
getting old, too.
But there are a lot of us who are wondering where these
celebrities came from and where the America we knew went

In light of the many jokes we send to
one another for a laugh, this is a little different: This is
not intended to be a joke; it’s not funny, it’s
intended to get you thinking.

In light of recent events…
terrorists attack, school shootings, etc.. I think it
started when Madeleine Murray O’Hare (she was
murdered, her body found a few years ago) complained she
didn’t want prayer in our schools, and we said OK. Then
someone said you better not read the Bible in school… The
Bible says thou shalt not kill; thou shalt not steal, and
love your neighbor as yourself.
And we said OK.

Then Dr. Steven Benjamin Spock said we
shouldn’t spank our children when they misbehave,

because their little personalities would be warped and we

might damage their self-esteem (Dr. Spock’s son


suicide). We said an expert should know what he’s

talking about.. And we said okay..

Now we’re asking ourselves why our
children have no conscience, why they don’t know right
from wrong, and why it doesn’t bother them to kill
strangers, their classmates, and

Probably, if we think about it long and
hard enough, we can figure it out. I think it has a great
deal to do with ‘WE REAP WHAT WE

Funny how simple it is for people to
trash God and then wonder why the world’s going to hell.
Funny how we believe what the newspapers say, but question
what the Bible says. Funny how you can send ‘jokes’
through e-mail and they spread like wildfire, but when you
start sending messages regarding the Lord, people think
twice about sharing. Funny how lewd, crude, vulgar and
obscene articles pass freely through cyberspace, but public
discussion of God is suppressed
in the school and workplace.

Are you laughing

Funny how when
you forward this message, you will not send it to many on
your address list because you’re not sure what they
believe, or what they will think of you for
sending it.

Funny how we can be more worried about
what other people think of us than what God thinks of

Pass it on if you think it has merit.

If not, then just discard it… no one
will know you did. But, if you discard this thought process,
don’t sit back and complain about what bad shape the
world is in.

You, also might want to pass this on……….I did
