Was Jesus With Fathers 4 Justice (F4J) at the Lincoln Memorial?

Ray Blumhorst checks in with this brilliant analysis.

Now, don't tune out because it says Jesus, as there is no bible-thumpin' here, just a historical comparison.

Ray bloviates thusly:

When confronting difficult circumstances in their daily lives, it appears many Christians have found it spiritually edifying to ask the question, “What would Jesus do?” According to the theological reasoning, the answer to that question is revealed, situation by situation, as each Christian lives their life following the life of Jesus Christ.

A few days ago, Fathers 4 Justice (F4J) scaled the statue of Abraham Lincoln, residing inside the Lincoln memorial in Washington, D.C. While some in the Christian community have apparently questioned and criticized the actions of Fathers 4 Justice, I think Fathers 4 Justice (F4J) committed a brilliantly Christian act. Scaling the statue of Lincoln, inside the memorial, to protest corruption in America's family law system reminds me of examples of Jesus' behavior in His earthly lifetime.

When Jesus cleansed the Temple in His time, Jerusalem was on heightened alert for possible "trouble." Insurrectionists were violently confronting Roman authority throughout the region, yet Jesus staged His protest, none-the-less. Considering the actions of F4J, the life of Jesus Christ, and the fact that Lincoln died a Christian, I suspect Jesus was right there with those Fathers from F4J, beginning the cleansing of “the temple of corrupt family law.”

In the Lincoln memorial, above the statue of Lincoln and carved on the back wall, are these words:

"In this temple as in the hearts of the people for whom he saved the union the memory of Abraham Lincoln is enshrined forever."

Perhaps the single clearest memory of Abraham Lincoln is that of the great emancipator. Abraham Lincoln is remembered largely for issuing the emancipation proclamation and thereby freeing the slaves.

To freedom loving men and women around the world, the memory of Abraham Lincoln has become a symbol of freedom over slavery, and justice over cruel tyranny. Given the vast destruction of families taking place in corrupt family law courts today, where children are routinely denied equal access to one of their loving parents, one can only wonder, "What would President Lincoln do if he were alive today?" Would Lincoln de-incentivise the predominant rewarding of custody to Mothers over Fathers and thereby enrich children with equal access to both parents? Would President Lincoln put an end to the governmental harvesting of Fathers for governmental financial gain and thereby work to end the alienation of so many parents from their emotionally impoverished children? Would Lincoln de-incentivise the predominant rewarding of custody to Mothers over Fathers and thereby abolish the harsh financial slavery that Fathers are predominantly under?

In His earthly time, according to the New Testament, Jesus is credited with boldly going into the Temple of His local theocratic government and cleansing it of money changers who placed exorbitant financial burdens on the people of His time. However, Jesus was not so mild mannered and peaceful as F4J. Jesus grabbed a whip and put it to the corrupt money changers, and others, who onerously exploited the good, decent people.

No doubt some will say I'm mixing theology with secular politics, but I disagree. Under the Roman rule of Jesus' time the local management of the people was handled in large part by the religious leaders in Jesus' community. Jesus was taking direct action to confront the corruption of those leaders and their underlings. It is truly sad, in my opinion, that many "leaders" of Jesus’ Church today lack so much clarity, conviction and integrity that they misandristly address the marriage crisis in their Churches, but ignore the bigger problem of blatant corruption in America‘s family law system.

To try to stigmatize Fathers 4 Justice as anything less than loving, caring, devoted Fathers (trying to work peacefully to change a corrupt family law system) is despicable, in my opinion, and lacking in good sense. To try to stigmatize F4J as anything less than the societal change agents for good they are striving to be, is vicious and un-Christian, in my opinion.

Regardless of critics, self-aggrandizing interests, the lack of main stream media news coverage, and the ongoing obstinance of government saying, “Don’t give them any attention,” it very much appears that the righteous cleansing of the corrupt family law legal system (temple) has begun in America - with significant action by Fathers 4 Justice. What will you now do?

Probaby not, from almost all Christians I have ever talked to, Jesus was pro-women's rights and the first woman's rights supporter.

It probably was something worse then the Devil supporting the F4J protestors, see the Devil still isn't as evil as men who would enjoy women not having the right to steal their children and place them into bond slavery.

Well atleast we have someone/thing as an ally (thing-worse-then-devil in this case).

I suggest everyone read the woman's crazy rant and draw your own conclusions. Tom doesn’t even need to say a word in defense.
