God presides in the great assembly; he renders judgment among the “gods”: “How long will you defend the unjust and show partiality to the wicked? Defend the weak and the fatherless; uphold the cause of the poor and the oppressed. Rescue the weak and the needy; deliver them from the hand of the wicked. “The ‘gods’ know nothing, they understand nothing. They walk about in darkness; all the foundations of the earth are shaken. “I said, ‘You are “gods”; you are all sons of the Most High.’But you will die like mere mortals; you will fall like every other ruler.” Rise up, O God, judge the earth, for all the nations are your inheritance. Psalm 82:1-8 NIV
Yet at the same time many even among the leaders believed in him. But because of the Pharisees they would not openly acknowledge their faith for fear they would be put out of the synagogue; for they loved human praise more than praise from God. John 12:42,43 NIV
God sees, hears, and knows all about it. He is speaking and has spoken to the hearts of all who will hear Him and obey. For He knows–there are some who are afraid to speak truth, His Truth, for fear of being excommunicated–without the fellowship of those who choose to teach lies. That’s what the Pharisees–the religious leaders were–teachers in the temple who would not teach God’s Truth, truthfully, because they wanted the praise of men. Before Jesus ascended back His throne, He commanded us to go into the world, proclaiming the Gospel and that Gospel, includes protesting against those that oppress others.
But we, who believe God, are commanded to defend the rights of the poor and the needy, and the oppressed. And anyone–who’s rights are oppressed–need to be defended against the oppressor.
In This Country–the defenders of justice have always risen–against all odds–and prevailed against the injustice of wickedness.
The Revolutionary War ignited from the need of those who felt oppressed by England’s law and rules and they openly rebelled to fought to right the injustice they saw.
The Civil War resulted from those who saw the injustice of slavery and rose to put a stop to the practice of treating human beings like animals. The saw the injustice and rose against it and prevailed with the signing of the Declaration of Independence.
The Suffragette Movement resulted when women wanted the right to vote–they marched in protest and eventually–in spite of the odds against them that included being jailed, they prevailed.
Dr. Martin Luther King marched in protest of the injustice of how Black people in America were treated and because of the perseverance and determination of those who joined him to fight injustice, they prevailed with the signing of the Civil Rights Act.
When people in this country marched in protest of what they perceived as their right to marry whoever they wanted to marry, they persevered with the signing of the Marriage Equality Act.
And now–in the 21st Century again–we must rise and protest against the hatred and injustice that is bound to return to our nation–with the war cry, “Make America Great Again” which has decoded as “Make America White-Male Controlled Again.” Our war cry is–“Let Every Vote Count As The Voice of Americans.”
And yes, an election is supposed to represent the voice of the people, but we also have used an electoral college vote who determines who becomes president with a pledged vote. Considering the fact that the Justice Department is investigating numerous claims of Voter Suppression, there are those of us who believe without a doubt the election was rigged and because Hillary Clinton won the popular vote--the voice of the people–we are protesting against injustice and eruption of hatred by encouraging our electors to vote the voice of the people on December 19th.
We have seen the protests in the streets which have led to destruction and violence, and unfiltered acts of hatred and racism, and we know with recognizing the true voice of the people–we can begin to heal the land have peace.
While there are those who say, we won’t prevail–we see say, we have nothing to lose by trying to right a wrong. And looking at the history of our nation in its endeavors to fight for justice, we may set a historic precedence that will guarantee that every vote cast is counted and in the end–the people’s choice prevails.
Therefore, anyone who wishes to join the fight for justice of all Americans, here’s the link to the petition to encourage the Electoral College to vote the voice of the people across the nation who have determined that Hillary Clinton should be president of the United States.
Please sign and share if you believe that it is the voice of the people that should determine who should be president. We are fighting for the rights of those who do not look like the president-elect and for justice for all Americans, especially the poor who do not know they, too have the right to treated with dignity and respect since they have not received it at the hands of those who ignore them.
If this blog post offends your sensibilities–I would suggest a review of our history–the government of this land and know that a protest–is the way change really takes place. And a change is what we need to keep people from oppressing the media and any others who dare to speak against tyranny.
