The Short Path to Disappointment

It didn’t take long for President Obama to disappoint. On day three of his first term in office he overturned an 8 year long ban on state funding for family-planning groups that carry out or facilitate abortions around the world. He has made codifying his nihilistic worldview a top priority, something many of us who actually still think saw coming all along. The rest of America, including a sad number of my kin on the so-called ‘religious right,’ have in many ways become mindless drones who buy into the latest media hype and swallow the rabid messianic sensationalism surrounding the single most liberal, radical, inexperienced, and unqualified President in American history. This move to further enable abortion on a global scale will prove to only be the start of a long process of moral decay oozing from the pen of the Oval Office, which forces us to wonder if moral issues even matter to the majority of the voting populace anymore.

I choose to believe Archbishop Rino Fisichella in his assessment,

“I do not believe that those who voted for (Obama) took into consideration ethical themes, which were astutely left aside during the election debate. The majority of the American population does not take the same position as the president and his team.”

If this statement is true then there is still hope. No, not ‘hype’ like what surrounds President Obama. But hope. Hope that Americans haven’t completely abandoned what is good and decent. Hope that after a temporary blindness due to fear and uncertainty the light of reason and the use of sound judgment will once more prevail. Hope that innocent human life will yet again be considered more valuable than a stock portfolio.

If the Archbishop’s statement is not true, then we as a nation have traveled down a very short path to disappointment indeed, a path that all but assures our own demise.

  1. Well said, but it’s not just the abortion thing…already he is closing Gitmo, increasing restrictions on interrogation techniques that are crucial to defending the country, and increasing emmission standards on a failing auto industry…it took roughly one week in office to seriously weaken the country

  2. it is hard to be disappointed when you saw it coming. people like us knew this was the real obama. we wish it wasn’t. but it is.

    one cannot be disappointed when one was expecting to be disappointed. there is no surprise with obama.

    you help me out, but i keep thinking this: how do we hold all these people responsible who voted for him – for whatever reason they did, i.e, idiocy or selfishness, or to make history. whatever the reason, i can’t help but think that god still holds them accountable (in some way) for helping to legislate evil in the world.

    isaiah warns against this in Is. 9:8 – 10:4. scary words for us.

  3. Agreed, Shishy Shree.

    Marshall, trust me, I am not the least bit surprised at Obama’s first moves, but I am still profoundly disappointed. Perhaps there was a very tiny part of me tucked away deep inside beneath my guns and Bibles in my cloak of bitterness that hoped that he would pleasantly surprise me. Maybe, just maybe, I might give him a chance, which is something the libs never once gave Bush. But alas, my hope is proving to be unfounded. That is why it is built on nothing less than Jesus.

    I think you and I have our work cut out for us over the next 4+ years. Here’s to carrying the conservative banner on blogspot…
