The Game of Life

I have mixed emotions on the Supreme Court’s gay marriage ruling.  I believe that marriage is supposed to be a bond between a man and a woman.  I also believe that 2 people who love each other should be able to live their lives together as they see fit, regardless of their gender, as long as they understand the consequences of their actions.  The rule book (the Bible) says that marriage is between a man and a woman. I didn’t write the rule book and I don’t question the wisdom of the One who made the rules.  As a sinner, who am I to judge other sinners?

Stacked up against abortion, terrorism, and a general decline in civilization as we know it, gay marriage is way down on my list of things to worry about.  I believe that whether you are gay, straight, black, white, or otherwise, you have the same right to life as anyone else.  This right to life begins at conception.  What we do with our lives is up to each of us as individuals, and we all will be held to account for the actions we take in the exercise of our free will.

I look at life as a game.  As with any game, there are rules for the game of life.  We kill our unborn children under cover of the laws of man and fool ourselves into thinking we are playing by the rules.  We ignore that little voice in our heads and tell ourselves that since it’s legal it must be right.  We pick and choose among the rules in the rule book and ignore the ones that inconvenience us.  We tell ourselves that some of the rules are more important than others and that everything will work out in the end.

The highest court in the greatest country on earth has given us abortion, gay marriage, and ObamoCare.  9 lawyers in black robes have literally changed the course of history in America.  Their 5-4 decision in Roe v Wade has resulted in the deaths of over 60 million unborn children since 1973.  It’s time for term limits and accountability for the Supreme Court.  It’s time for them to step back into the game and get back to calling balls and strikes, not creating laws from the bench and imposing their politically motivated views on a Constitutional Republic.

Once again, as one who is more flawed than most, I don’t claim the moral high ground on anything.  What I do know, with every fiber of my being, is that killing unborn children is wrong.  I also know,beyond a shadow of a doubt, that my purpose in life is to end the practice of abortion. In pursuit of my purpose I will play the game of life as I see fit. Anyone I offend along the way will just have to deal with it.  And any child I’m lucky enough to save will have a lot of choices to make as they play their own game of life.
