Amy’s gone and done it again. For how many years will I have to live with the fact that I ran, not walked, to buy her CD Age to Age with El Shaddai on it. Its going to be at least until her latest altruistic flog passes to and through the American evangelical zeitgeist.
She has an opinion piece up at Fox News where she opens with an emotional hook that I can express in a math lesson. To remember the correct order of operations in math you can use the acronym BODMAS.
When Grant says her favorite prayer is:
“Lord, lead me to the ones I need. And, to the ones who need me.”
Her acronym is BOD-my-ass because she has it ass backwards.
Forget all that because that’s not the worst of it.
She proceeds to share heart tugging anecdotes, which actually can have value. I get that. But she takes the warm broth of empathy she has generated and throws in a cold turd from left field.
Over 220 million women around the world have raised their voices to say that they want to avoid their next pregnancy but lack the information or contraceptives to do so. To say this takes extreme courage. And to hear this and do something about it takes courage. This means talking about pregnancy and birth and newborns with influential leaders across the United States [my bold]
Did she just say that 220 million women are unaware how they get pregnant? And by mentioning leaders in the U.S. is she on about insurance and Sandra Fluke stuff, or is she saying women in the U.S. are equally baffled that after laying back and enjoying it so often they have thought of every county in England, then they are shocked that their pants start getting snug and their belly buttons are inverting?
The feminist leaning emotional ideas start popping up randomly like whack-a-mole.
I can empathize with these women around the world who want a chance for education, employment, and a happier, healthier family.
Will someone map her thoughts for me? Or point me in the direction of the thread… maybe just the “frayed not” from that punchline.
What does Amy make you think of?
Yea, me too….Vince Gill, sheesh.
