Tonight, as Siena was putting the little ones to bed, as she was talking to them, getting them calmed down so they would go to sleep, Elijah, our soon-to-be six year-old, asked her what was wrong with Barack Obama. So she told him that he thinks it's okay to kill babies.
The kids got pretty quiet at that point.
Then Elijah asked why we don't like Mitt Romney. So she told him that it is because he thinks it is okay to kill some of the babies.
Well, by then they were all pretty somber. Little Sam, who is two, started to say over and over again, "We should kill zero. Not some. We should kill zero babies."
Sebastian, who is four, said that he wants the babies, so he can take care of them.
Are you listening, America?
"Then Jesus called a little child to Him, set him in the midst of them, and said, 'Assuredly, I say to you, unless you are converted and become as little children, you will by no means enter the kingdom of heaven. Therefore whoever humbles himself as this little child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. Whoever receives one little child like this in My name receives Me.
'Whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in Me to sin, it would be better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck, and he were drowned in the depth of the sea. Woe to the world because of offenses! For offenses must come, but woe to that man by whom the offense comes!
'If your hand or foot causes you to sin, cut it off and cast it from you. It is better for you to enter into life lame or maimed, rather than having two hands or two feet, to be cast into the everlasting fire. And if your eye causes you to sin, pluck it out and cast it from you. It is better for you to enter into life with one eye, rather than having two eyes, to be cast into hell fire.'"
-- Matthew 18:2-9
