In and Of the World . . . Current Events Wrap Up

Ok, it’s Thursday, and you know what that means… It’s time for The Current Events Wrap Up meme, hosted by the amazing Julie Arduini at her The Surrendered Scribe blog. The Current Events Wrap Up meme is the vision God gave Julie for discussing what is going on in the world, nation and even our own lives. There is so much happening these days and it would be amazing to have a team of conservative commentators discussing their thoughts. Please go and check out Julie’s blog, and if you like current events or news, think about joining in and/or spreading the word!


Mass murders. Pirated ships. Terrorism. The race for nuclear weapons. Children being killed. Deadly earthquakes. A “rock star” president who is idolized, and who disses the U.S. overseas, much like the Dixie Chicks. Amnesty for illegal immigrants. The economy. The continued hysteria over the fictitious global warming. As usual, there is much to choose from for discussing and commenting on. One thing has really sobered and saddened me though.

The liberal, gay agenda is taking over. And not just with the liberals, academics and Hollyweird, anymore. It has been slowly, but surely infiltrating the conservative and Christian communities.

~ Last year, Dove-Award winning Christian Music singer Ray Bolz, came out and announced he was gay. He’d recently divorced his wife of 33 years to be true to himself (for more info click here).

~ Recently, Texas Christian University announced that there will be separate housing for gay students, starting next year. The community will be open to gay, lesbian, bi-sexual, and trans-gender students, along with their heterosexual student supporters (for more info click here).

~ Just this week, in an interview with CNN’s Larry King Live, famed Pastor Rick Warren has now disavowed and apologized for his support of Prop. 8, the California bill to keep marriage between a man and a woman (for more info click here).

It seems more and more, that we Christians are not only in the world, but of the world too. That, my friends, is a commentary that is just really, really sad.

Tracy, thank you so much for posting on this because I consider myself pretty newsie and I had NO idea about any of these stories. None. The fact that this happened months ago scares me. Obviously it was a mere blip on the screen in the media. The Christian University even admitted they were braced for criticism and received none. NONE. Reading this post left me breathless---well done, so well done on your part. For the topics and people mentioned, they need our prayers. I knew for the last few years there was going to be a separation of sorts from speaking His word and Living it===but to see it unfolding, Jesus help us. Help us all.

I didn't realize so much was going on. I tend to not watch the news during the week when Joey is out of town. There is always a prison break or murder and it makes me feel uneasy being alone.
I am always surprised at how our society is accepting to sin. It seems as tho we are being numb to what it is all about.
Thanks for the update!

I hadn't heard about the Rick Warren thing, either.

I'm so glad I live on the other side of the country. Not that things are paradise here, of course.

Makes my heart overwhelmed with sorrow. Today especially.

Thanks, sister, for keeping me aware. Need to be on my knees more.

Thank you for posting this. I heard about Iowa and gay marriages. I hadn't heard about Rick, though.

Lord God, I just pray your mercy down on us.
