election woes

I hadn’t intended to write about the Presidential election. Not one iota. Until yesterday morning, when I briefly glanced through my Twitter feed and saw the jubilation for the re-election of President Obama.

There were small amounts of tears and disappointment, but predominately celebration. To the extremes. Very hateful extremes. Essentially slaying the losing party via social media.

Have we forgotten?! This isn’t about how Democratic you are! Or how Republican you are! Or how black you are! Or how gay you are! One’s vote should reflect his/her support for a candidate’s stance on very important issues that affect you and your loved ones. There has been far too much racial commentary openly admitting to voting for/against a candidate on the mere color of his skin.

Too, I'm tired of feeling uncomfortable to show favoritism towards a candidate, in fear of scrutiny or a hailstorm of comments. Even with the classiest of delivery! People are just downright mean when it comes to politics and religion. I’ll never understand the lack of common courtesy people have for one another.

Now that the election is over, can we all return to normal. Yes, normal. You know…where we all know nothing about politics or government!

Kum-bah-yah, people!

2 Chronicles 7:14 - 14 if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.
