I have never been one to yell at my TV. My Uncle Wayne always yelled at ballgames, but my dad was never into it like that. Maybe a few rare moments I have. Maybe at Simon on Idol. That is a possibility. But this is a rare thing for me to do. Well, I yelled at my TV last night.
I watch ER. I should stop. Their left winged political agenda always makes me so very angry. I've been watching it since it started though, and I just cannot give it up. Last night they hit Religion. They have this wacky "chaplain", if that is what you want to call her. She believes that everyone has the right to believe whatever they want. There is a higher power...whoever you want to think that power is, well goody for you. She makes me angry. She makes my husband furious. (Check Higher Things in a week or so and I bet there will be an article about this particular episode!) Well, last night this man has cancer and is dying. He used to work at a prison. His job was injecting the drug to those who have been given the death penalty. Well, I won't address my feelings on the death penalty right now, but he was dealing with major guilt for what he had done. He killed one man who ended up being proven to be innocent. It took two rounds of drugs to kill him. He believed God was trying to send him a message and he didn't listen. So, he is needed forgiveness, but he cannot seem to be able to accept the forgiveness that God is so willing to freely offer to us. Anyway, the "chaplain chick" comes in to talk with him. She starts this whole mumbo-jumbo about some god out there. He becomes furious with her! He tells her that he won't listen to her "new age, god is love, buffet of higher beings" junk. (this is not a direct quote) I am shouting, "You go!" Then, this "chaplain chick" talks about who can have any certainty about absolute truth. I am yelling, "I can, I can!" Man, what a show! They just get crazier all the time. I guess it is just giving us good opportunity to witness about our faith! Check out Higher Things next week, I am sure my husband will address this whole episode much more eloquently that I!
Have a great weekend everyone! We are off to St. Louis. Pray for our safety!
Thanks for taking my class Angie!
