My draft naughty and nice list for recent months:

Naughty

  • Lockdown Governors, Mayors.
  • Woke academics, journalists, gov’t bureaucrats, corporate social activists.
  • Corrupt politicians. 
  • Bad police.
  • Anyone suppressing the First Amendment. 
  • Big Social Media censors.
  • Biased Fourth Estate claiming objectivity. 

Nice

  • Good Wife.
  • Healthcare workers.
  • Good police.
  • Effective NGOs and Nonprofits.
  • Faith, Family, Freedom. 
  • Christian Liberty.

Feeling low, depressed, discouraged, disillusioned, anxious, fearful, hopeless?
 
“Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice.
Let your reasonableness be known to everyone. The Lord is at hand;
do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.
 
And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
 
Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.”
 
Phil. 4:4-8

1-Why do people wear masks while driving or golfing alone?

2-How is it t-shirts go into the wash rightside out but emerge inside out?

3-Why do people watch gory horror movies?

4-How did we get to a point when Broadway Joe Namath would be hocking Medicare?

5-How is it that educated, trained actors regularly say “Calvary,” ie. Golgotha the place of the cross, when they mean “cavalry,” ie. troops?

7-When will the now jaded practice mercifully end of running with pro football teammates to the nearest end zone camera to execute choreographed, juvenile celebrations after accomplishing something players are highly paid to do?

8-How can we escape stores incessantly playing Paul McCartney’s “Wonderful Christmastime,” a vacuous piece with nothing to offer but repetition?

You must be getting older if you:

1-like buying gas w/o a monitor promoting stuff while you’re trapped.

2-remember a time when sports were about sports. 

3-appreciate patriotism. 

4-find corporate social activism wearisome.

5-believe we’d be better off if men/women offered youth more mature role models. 

6-miss respectable and respected political leaders, and celebrities.

7-enjoy music w/ singable lyrics.

8-think everyone would be safer, happier if we still believed in right and wrong.

9-worry about next generations who are virtually illiterate re history, biblical worldview, and civics.

10-consider social media a mixed blessing.

It’s been a slow build for about 5 years now, significantly faster and more in the last few months, the number of biracial, or mixed race, or interracial couples featured in television or print product commercials. Combos vary, black husband, white wife and vice versa, sometimes mixed-race kids, certainly Latino or Hispanic and white or black, and longer standing back to the overseas wars, white man, Asian woman. 

I like it. Seems like a reasonable, harmless, creative, and now realistic way to acknowledge America’s melting pot. I don’t buy the articles floating around calling this a “war on white men.” I know that exists among the fringes, but this isn’t it. I also reject the racist comments I’ve read about these commercials. Humbug. Ever notice that many (not all for sure) yelling “racist” are themselves racist? 

American society is changing. Of 332M people, 13.1% black, 5.8% Asian, 18.1% Hispanic, Latino, 1.3% Native American, white 76.6%, and while white is increasing at .5%, all others are increasing 1.3% to 3.1%. 

Marriage between two people of different races in America has been legal in all states since the US Supreme Court case, Loving v. Virginia (1967), held that “anti-miscegenation” laws were unconstitutional. In 2017, 17% of newlyweds and 10% of all marriages involved individuals of different ethnicity or race. 

Again, no problem for me. Despite a sad and checkered history of Christian interpretation, there is nothing in Scripture that questions much less forbids interracial marriage. I’d be more concerned that during COVID-19 lockdowns, divorces have jumped 34% higher compared to 2019, and that’s for any or all races and ethnicities.
