HACKLES UP!



Idiom:  "To get one's hackles up"
Meaning:  To be extremely insulted or irritated!
        
Hey Ya'll!

Yep....I've got my hackles up this morning!  I usually try to stay away from the PC raucous but this morning's article on FOX (read entire news story here) just sent me into a hackled raised frenzy.  And I think I'm safe to say that if allot of you've already read the story, there's a whole lot of hackle raising going on out there! 

MyFoxDetroit.com
Apparently, the Detroit school system is allowing a student to wear a dagger because within the tenants of the students sikh religion, all baptized males are expected to carry a dagger!  A D.A.G.G.E.R. !!!  Uh, the last time I checked, a dagger is a short pointed instrument used as a weapon, people!!!

Heaven forbid we offend the religious rights of the dagger totin' sikh religion baptized male student in Detroit!  If I were a Christian parent of a child in the Detroit school system, I'd have one thing to say to them............Your liberal bent in the name of tolerance to protect the rights of the baptized sikh religion student not only endangers the safety of students but you have infringed upon my Holy Spirit baptized student's rights and my child will show up tomorrow carrying his Sword of the Lord...THE WORD OF GOD and will be clad with scripture covered attire and will pray before, during and after school on school grounds and will recite the Pledge of the Allegiance and carry an American flag boldly proclaiming GOD BLESS AMERICA!!............I'm just LOUDLY saying!!! Oh and one last rant.....I suppose that if someone gets stabbed (Heaven forbid!), the liberal media will attribute it to influences from Sarah Palin's rugged Alaskan hunting gun and knife totin' life style!  GOD HELP US!!!

We must pray for our nation, people!!!  WE MUST PRAY!!!  AND IN LOVE BOLDLY PROCLAIM THE TRUTH!!

IF MY PEOPLE, WHO ARE CALLED BY MY NAME,
SHALL HUMBLE THEMSELVES,
AND PRAY,
AND SEEK MY FACE
AND TURN
FROM THEIR WICKED WAYS,
THEN WILL I HEAR FROM HEAVEN
AND WILL FORGIVE THEIR SIN
AND HEAL THEIR LAND.
IIChron. 2:14


Blessings!

WOW!!!!! SICK!!!!! MY HEART & SPIRIT IS GRIEVING... I am praying along with you NOW. Crazy thing is my husband and I have been praying about homeschooling our kids. Looks like every time I turn around, their is confirmation why we NEED TO!! I know I am in Texas, but Sin and Evil is everywhere.... We need God so bad TODAY!! I agree with your post.

I hope my post today warms your heart up. (actually it's BITTER COLD), but you will understand when you see it. LOL!! Love, Nene

Wow, OK, you said it well. I don't trust myself to get wound up and spout off. This is an outrage!

Sandy said...

Sounds unbelievable but we can
expect this kind of thing in
these last days in which we're
living. We're seeing good called
evil and evil called good. There
is tolerance for everyone except
the Christians. What a world in
need of a loving Savior, if only
people would turn to Him.
I love you, girl! Praying for you
and your loved ones!

Hi! Jackie, WoW! how scary is this?... I have not seen or heard about this, but it does make my heart sick! I guess that when I think of my daughter being a school teacher and then the incrediable worry about what can occur,(inside those walls)~ it just does make one out-raged! God Help Us! and Protect Us! Warm Blessings!:)

Tammi said...

Amen! Instead of God bless America, we should pray for God have mercy on America.
You have addressed this and in such a powerful way! Thank you so much! I don't think it could have been better said!

"Just Me - NC Beth" said...

Good Grief!! And our kids can not even quote scripture or prayer in the class room, let alone have a Bible on school grounds!!!! I am truly insulted!!

Linda said...

Hi Jackie,
I agree with your rant honey, we are over the top with all this political correctness, and for one I am sick too death of it. and you are right on.

I felt the same outrage over the issue with chick fil a yesterday, since when is it against their rights to give money to who ever they darn well please!! or speak whatever they want.

Today people can scream obscenities and oh, that is just fine, but say Merry Christmas or Happy Easter, and it is a fate worse than death.

Our world has truly gone upside down, just as the word said it would, they will call evil good,
and good evil.
That really is where we are at these days.
Very Sad, but look up our redemption draweth nigh!!
Blessings, Nellie

More Christian parents need to get involved at their child's public school ... all children can express their religion in most states, but not at the safety of other students. I do not understand this. Christian parents stand up ... and stand with your child for Christ. Fear is not an option.
Praise God ... and all HIS children said AMEN.
Blessings,
Bren

I am with you also, you said it right!

They call me "Deb" said...

Oh what an age we live in. We were warned of things like this. Watching the enemy's agenda chip away at Christianity and pave a path to the forefront.
Truthfully, I am so glad God's Word is written on our hearts and His Spirit lives within us - cuz NO ONE can prevent us from taking HIM anywhere we to. This is why it's imperative that we read and get God's Word down deep into our spirits.

Oh Jackie please tell me it isn't so. And I've heard of kids being sent home from school with suspensions because they had a plastic knife in their lunchbox to cut a piece of fruit. Yep, we are warned that the day would come when wrong seems right and right seems wrong. Everybody grab your SWORD...of the Spirit! This is just too much.

LeeAnn@Encouragement Is Contagious said...
