Pray for Our Leaders to have Common Sense

23 March

Today’s post has nothing to do with Mormonism.

Rather, today’s post is a plea for Christians to pray for elected officials who govern our communities.

Yesterday, the Governor of Washington signed a new bill into law.

The bill had several agendas as they usually do, and while I don’t make a habit of voicing my political opinion, I’d be remorse by not doing so this time around.

Governor Jay Inslee signed a bill that would toughen laws against discrimination. In particular, women’s rights to have fair pay for equal work.

Let me say right off the bat, I haven’t a problem at all with this.

However, the other part of the bill passed was to give greater access to reproductive rights for women (as if they don’t have enough of that here), and to grant more recuperation time from procedures like abortion.

Now, if you want to give workers time off for medical reasons, have at it.

My HUGE concern about this bill is this –

If you’ve made a law against discrimination, why pray tell, have you just given a wholesale thumbs up to the discrimination of the unborn?

Why aren’t they afforded the same?

Isn’t it discrimination to kill the child you don’t want?

If you killed them by any other means, you and I wouldn’t be having this conversation.

893,000

That’s how many young people lost their lives in 2016 just from abortion. Where are the people decrying this atrocity? We’ve seen massive protests sweeping the country over school shootings, and RIGHTLY SO!!!

Why aren’t people protesting like this for the babies?

And by the way, Mr. Inslee has put a moratorium on the death penalty here.

Pray for our elected officials to make better decisions than what we’ve seen here in Washington.

With Love in Christ;

Michelle
