I Don’t Watch the Grammys- And No, I Don’t Live Under a Rock

I don’t watch the Grammys. Some of you probably already knew that, some of you probably didn’t. You may want to know why I don’t. Most of you probably don’t care what I do or avoid one way or another 😉

A little bit of my background: I used to listen to all kinds of music. I never liked rap, but I listened to all the popular hip-hop and pop songs. Katy Perry, Lady Gaga, Rihanna, Kanye, and so on. Then the Lord saved me. I love instrumental music, and Christian music (hymns and contemporary alike.) I LOVE piano melodies!

What does that have to do with an awards ceremony?

One of the songs nominated for Record of the Year this past Sunday was Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines.” Never heard of it? You’re not missing anything good. The lyrics include:

And that’s why I’m gon’ take a good girl
I know you want it
I know you want it
I know you want it
You’re a good girl
Can’t let it get past me
You’re far from plastic
Talk about getting blasted
I hate these blurred lines
I know you want it
I know you want it
I know you want it
But you’re a good girl
The way you grab me
Must wanna get nasty
Go ahead, get at me

Everybody get up

That isn’t even the worst part! This was nominated for best record of the year?! Am I missing something here?

The winner for this category, Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky”, isn’t much better:

She’s up all night ’til the sun
I’m up all night to get some
She’s up all night for good fun
I’m up all night to get lucky

Sigh. This is “great” music now, people. Lack of substance, and whenever there there is something that isn’t just repetition, it centers around inappropriate sexual relationships/innuendo, booze, or some other vile and sinful desire. This is not wholesome music.

But we all knew that, right? Then why do so many people waste their time watching a something like this. We live in a fallen world.

Not to mention the combined “wedding” that took place on the air. Gay and straight couples and their partners. Or the skimpy and over-the-top outfits. Or Katy Perry’s satanic performance.

That’s just a summary. We need to get back to family values.

Some people believe you have to see what is going on in the world so you can fight it. I say that’s what Google is for 😉

Roe v Wade- 41 Years Later

*Disclaimer: Having an abortion in the past does not make you a terrible person. I’m not here to judge you. If you have repented and know Jesus as your savior, He has already forgiven you and will comfort you!*

Forty-one years ago today the US Supreme Court essentially made abortion legal in the United States.

What a wonderful milestone for women’s rights!

What a tragedy for the more than 56,000,000 lives lost since January 22,1973.

Due to China’s one-child policy, the ratio of males to females in that country is 120 to 100. Boys are more desirable because they are generally stronger and will carry on the family name. Because of the large population in China, families are fined for having multiple children, thus encouraging women to abort their female babies. This growing problem is often referred to as “China’s missing women.” The population is aging, and the replacement rate isn’t being met. The growth China has worked so hard to attain won’t last too much longer if the Chinese government doesn’t pull back on reproductive health control.

That’s one of the effects of abortion. An economy can’t sustain itself when there is no one to support it.

Cancer. Starvation. Disease. Abortion. What do they have in common? They kill.

I’ve heard this question before: “If your god is such a loving god, why doesn’t he end world hunger and disease?” I like this response: ” You aborted the people He created to cure those things.” Obviously God didn’t actually say this. But, out of the 56 million lives cut short by abortion since the roe v wade decision, is it realistic to think not a single one would have contributed some type of good to this fallen world?

” I didn’t want to get pregnant! We used contraception but it still happened and abortion is my only option.”

I do not hate you for considering abortion. I don’t think I’m better than you. I don’t understand how you could choose your own happiness over your child’s. But you can still turn around, friend. You don’t have to do it. An abortion is forever. Please don’t make that mistake! If you truly cannot afford this baby, please, give him up for adoption. There are people you can talk to. They won’t judge you or condemn you. They will help you!

“As a woman it is my right to do what I want to my body. Old men oppose abortion, even though it affects a woman’s body.”

I am a woman. A young woman. I oppose abortion.

Do you want to start a fad diet? Go for it. Want an elective surgery? Go ahead. Do you want to pierce your ears? Just make sure you keep the holes clean for the first few months (I have pierced ears ;))

Do you want an abortion? I hate to be the one to break it to you, but thats not your decision. It’s not your body. It isn’t your heartbeat that will stop. Your limbs will remain intact. You won’t be forcibly removed from your home or denied nutrients.

It’s not your body that will be affected. It’s your baby’s. Think of all that little life can accomplish. The potential is great!

Want to support women’s rights? Oppose abortion. Baby girls are murdered every day for the sake of convenience.i wouldn’t call that progress.
