Idiom: "To get one's hackles up"
Meaning: To be extremely insulted or irritated!
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!
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 SEEK MY FACE
FROM THEIR WICKED WAYS,
THEN WILL I HEAR FROM HEAVEN
AND WILL FORGIVE THEIR SIN
AND HEAL THEIR LAND.
