Limbaugh Questions Why See America Through The Vision Of A Nine Year Old?

This post was written many weeks ago but I put in my “draft” section for more thought.

Now I’ve had some time to think, ponder and re-read.

I am somewhat shocked at Rush Limbaugh questioning of the President’s memorial statement about nine year old Christina-Taylor Green, murdered on a fateful Saturday as she was trying to see her Congresswomen in the old fashion American tradition of a “meet and greet.”

Limbaugh wonders aloud why “we should see America ” in the vision of a nine year old girl?

My mind goes to the Gospel of Mark where Jesus said: 10:14

Suffer the little children to come unto me and forbid them not, for such is the kingdom of God. Verily I say unto you, Whoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child, he shall not enter therein.

Even if Mr. Limbaugh doesn’t want to look at New Testament then let’s look at the Old Testament.

Psalm 8:2

From the lips of children and infants you have ordained praise.

Throughout the Old Testament, Exodus; Deuteronomy; Chronicles; 2 Kings; Samuel and many more, all show God’s pleasure at children and their praise.

Ecclesiastes 12:1 encourages early piety

Remember your Creator in the days of your youth, before the days of trouble come and the years approach when you will say, I find no pleasure in them.

If God, assuming one believes in a higher power, can relish the praise of children, surely we can relish the “vision” of what America was, is and should be, to a nine year old child.
