2016 Elections: Continued Non-Conformity

By Angela Wittman Hillary Clinton (Wikipedia) While following the 2016 Presidential jockeying of the candidates from both political parties, I fear we will have Hillary in the White House. This is abhorrent to me for many reasons: she's un-apologetically pro-abortion, flip-flops on issues, is untrustworthy and frankly, she's a woman. I realize other nations have had respectable women as leaders, and I admit Margaret Thatcher did much good for Great Britain, but Hillary Clinton is no Margaret Thatcher.

Ephesians 5:22,23 Dear Friends, This article is written mostly for my sisters in Christ who are struggling with the fruit of feminism. What is the fruit of feminism? Discontentment Broken marriages Depression The murder of preborn babies by abortion Couples living together without marriage Fornication and adultery Homosexuality Suicide Neglected and abused children Unemployment and loss of jobs for men I firmly believe that we can trace these ills of society to feminism.
