Hello all, long time no blog.

I think I am going to touch on something here that may offend some, or even upset some, but in a way I have to get this out and off of my chest.

I voted for Obama. There I said it. Yes, I am pro-life, and yes, I believe that homosexuality is morally wrong. I was raised in a very Republican family, and somehow, someway, I got caught up in all the propaganda. Am I saying that McCain was a better choice, eh, not really but anyway.

I have been having doubts about my decision where at the time that I voted, I was sure that Obama was the best choice. After a great sermon one Wednesday, DH and I got in the car and I just sighed. He knew I was bothered and asked if I want to talk about it. At first, I really didnt know where to start, but then (as always) the fount began to flow.

I am all about human rights. I believe that everyone should have the same rights as everyone else, nor matter their moral scope. However a quote provided by my pastor broke me.

“Compromise is but the sacrifice of one right or good in the hope of retaining another--too often ending in the loss of both.”

Why was it ok for me to compromise life (anti-abortion) for the economy? Is money more important than a child's existence? I had such a burden on my heart about this thought.

The discussion in our little PT Cruiser came to Gay and Lesbian marriage, and I was quite adamant on telling him that it is not fair that they cannot marry. I was bringing out all the guns on this one, but one little thing he said stopped me in my tracks. "So, you want to make accommodating laws for sinners?" Sigh. Is that what I have been advocating for? Is it sad that I never thought of it this way?

I was able to talk this over with a great friend, and came to the conclusion to just give it to God. I cannot change the past, but I can overcome it through Christ. I think putting it out here in print just solidifies the fact that it is gone and over.

Thank you so much for reading, and I am sorry if I offended you. I promise that I did not intend to, and hope that you take this as my own personal beliefs and not an attack on anyone.
