From a reader:
why is the main stream media even writing about this? 35,000 children die every day from preventable things: like starvation and diarrhea…but the media, you and I…all we focus on is this Crap. It is demeaning to Ms. Spears…an embarrassment to most Americans, it is demeaning to our Creator, is a reckless affront to the Cross… I shudder to think what it looks like for us christians to carry on over gossip! We are pathetic and we, more than Ms. Spears, should be the ones repenting…thank God for forgiveness, I hope.
There is such truth in this. I spent a chunk of today in juvenile court trying to help a kid. I can’t go into the details of the case but I shudder to think of what our Lord thinks about this growing gap between the richest and poorest, between those who have nothing and those who have everything.
