Sharia, anyone? FGM? Child 'marriages'?

Well, I guess that most of the shouting has died down. Donald Trump has been duly, legally, and properly sworn in as the 45th POTUS. What kind of president he will eventually turn out to be is, of course, no more than speculation. He has claimed that he is a man of his word - so I am looking forward to the Embassy of the USoA in Israel being moved from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem; I am looking forward to a more realistic attitude towards Iran, and its nuclear ambitions; I am looking forward to less influence from 'professional' politicians; I am looking forward to the removal of federal funding for the inappropriately-named "Planned Parenthood". Yes, I am also looking forward to H R Clinton being prosecuted - but I'm not certain that he actually promised that!

What has been interesting has been the number of so-called "celebrities" who have been out on the streets continuing to complain about Mr Trump's election. One has even, allegedly, threatened to blow up the White House, and kill him (apparently making such a threat, even "in fun", is a punishable offence!). 

The majority of the protestors do appear to have been female - both those in the USoA and those in other countries, including the UK. And, of course, I would be the last person to deny them the right to protest - as long as they do so peacefully. However, I would like to know where some of these women were (and many of them were around at the time) when Bill Clinton was using even the Oval Office for his own sexual misdemeanours. I would like to know where they are protesting, in such numbers, against the imposition of Sharia (Islamic law) by groups of thugs in their own countries - sharia, that states that the testimony of a woman is worth only half that of a man; sharia, that permits a man to be "married" to a pre-pubescent girl (following the example of the paedophile pseudo-prophet, Mohammed); sharia - that allows captured females to be kept, or sold, as "sex-slaves".

I would also like to know when these outraged women displayed such outrage against the practice of FGM (Female Genital Mutilation) - a traditional cultural practice involving the cutting or removal of the external genitals of girls as little as a few days old. It can involve anything from the clitoris or clitoral hood being cut off; to the clitoris and inner lips (labia minora) being removed; to the clitoris, inner and outer lips (labia majora) being removed. The remaining skin is stitched or sealed leaving a small opening for the purposes of urination. This is not simply a female version of circumcision, but a much more invasive, and a harmful, process - often performed by non-medically trained women, in unsterile conditions and without anaesthetic.

I listened to writer and activist Gloria Steinem (of whom I have never heard before!) as she slammed President Trump's proposed Muslim registry at the Women's March on Washington.  "If you force Muslims to register, we will all register as Muslims.", she proclaimed. I wonder if she actually understands what she would be opening herself to if she were to do that very thing! The above is, in no way, an exhaustive list!

This year of 2107 is going to be, I suspect, a very interesting year - at least in political terms. If the rapture should be delayed, there could be a number of additional upheavals. Brexit and Trump could almost fade into insignificance when certain other political decisions are made over the coming months. However, in Psalm 2, we read these amazing words: 

"Why do the nations conspire, and the peoples plot in vain? The kings of the earth set themselves,     and the rulers take counsel together, against the Lord and His anointed, saying,
“Let us burst their bonds asunder, and cast their cords from us.”

He Who sits in the heavens laughs; the Lord has them in derision. Then He will speak to them in His wrath, and terrify them in His fury, saying:
I have set my king on Zion, my holy hill.” ... ... 

Now therefore, O kings, be wise; be warned, O rulers of the earth. Serve the Lord with fear, with trembling kiss His feet, lest He be angry, and you perish in the way; for His wrath is quickly kindled. 

Blessed are all who take refuge in Him."

He remains the Sovereign Ruler of all that exists. As the old chorus put it: "God is still on the throne" - and shall be, throughout eternity!
