That’s true, too. There are still some good ones.
When my babies would smile I was always told "It's just a gas smile" and I always asked "Do you smile when you have gas?!" LOL
LOL! I always thought that was a weird thing to say too!
We are reminded as we pass the 41st anniversary of Roe v Wade of where the immoral godless extremism of the liberal/progressive movement leads. Roe is responsible for the slaughter of more than 55 million babies in our country - more than 1.3 million a year.
Life has been the standard for all civilized societies throughout the history of mankind. With few exceptions, only in godless totalitarian societies run by ruthless kings or dictators would you find governments wantonly slaughtering millions of its own citizens. In modern times that would be leftist/fascist dictators such as Lennon, Stalin, Hitler, Mao, Pol Pot, etc. Strange that communist totalitarian societies like Russia and China are moving away from their failed anti-capitalist, anti-freedom, anti-God policies while American progressives and liberals are stepping up their goal of removing God from our public life and curtailing more and more of our God-given freedoms while replacing them with anti-capitalist, anti-freedom policies and tighter and tighter centralized government control over society.
When a government or society abandons God and reduces the value of human life to that of a common animal with no soul, then history proves that said government will treat humans accordingly. Man will be herded, enslaved, used as beasts of burden and slaughtered at will by ruthless, Godless, soulless totalitarians.
This is where the godless extremism of leftism always leads. Yes, they want to kill God. They want to say man has no soul. Man is just another animal that crawled out of the sea and onto the ground. That modern man has overpopulated the planet is now killing mother earth, so modern man must be brought under control.

He is a class act and a man of principle. He probably passed up his only opportunity to be a White House guest.
(Russell) Wilson told a Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reporter about how faith helped him deal with the death of his father, Harrison Wilson III in 2010, who had been suffering from diabetes and several strokes.
The date was June 9, the day after Russell Wilson was drafted by the (Major League Baseball team, the Colorado) Rockies. He went to share the news with his father.
"My grandmother and I went there and we started praying," Russell Wilson said. "He was non-responsive."
Undaunted, Russell Wilson told his father about being drafted by the Rockies. He eventually stepped out into the hallway, along with his grandmother and mother.
Mother and son stepped aside and started talking privately, for about 15 minutes.
Russell Wilson finished the story:
"We were just standing there and all of a sudden it clicked," he said. "The Holy Spirit was telling us to go in there. So we went in the room and - this is the crazy part.
"I walked in and I could see the (EKG) monitor. As soon as I walked in the door I said: 'Hey, Dad, I'm here.'
"As soon as I said that, the line went flat. That's how I knew the Lord is real. I knew my dad heard me and he could hear everything I was telling him about how I got drafted. He was waiting for something great to happen.
"That's how I knew he went in peace. He is here watching me right now."
The faith and football of Russell Wilson
For me generally it had always been the big four: faith, family, friends, and football. . . . as important as football is to me, it can never be higher than fourth. My faith has been number one since I was thirteen years old . . .
Some players get more vocal about it . . . and some point to Heaven after scoring a touchdown and praise God after games. I have no problem with that. But I dont do it, and dont think it makes me any less a Christian. I just want my actions to speak louder, and I dont want to be more of a target for criticism . . .
My faith doesnt make me perfect, it makes me forgiven, and provides me the assurance I looked for half my life ago. . .
Ive been blessedhaving so little go wrong in my life, and being given so much. I pray every night, sometimes long prayers about a lot of things and a lot of people, but I dont talk about it or brag about it because thats between God and me, and Im no better than anybody else in Gods sight.
But I consider myself fortunate to be able to go to Him for guidance, and I hope (and pray) I dont do too many things that displease Him. . . . I believe, too, that life is much better and freer when youre committed to God in that way.
