In case you haven’t noticed, the left is really good at taking non-issues and blowing them out of proportion, spewing all sorts of ridiculous emotionalism all over their audience.
A good case in point is how liberal media is losing their minds on Sen. Marco Rubio, launching attack after attack on him for stating that it’s bad to use the “f-word.”
Yes, in our day and age, even something as innocent as believing there’s an inappropriate time to use explicit language gets you mercilessly attacked by the dying liberal apparatus in our culture.
Last week, Rubio expressed his frustration with the f-word being “routinely used in news stories, tweets etc.”
Sign of our times… the F word is now routinely used in news stories, tweets etc It’s not even F*** anymore. Who made that decision???
— Marco Rubio (@marcorubio) June 29, 2018
Many in the media are insinuating that this tweet was meant to subtly criticize a survivor of the Capital Gazette shooting, Selene San Felice, who went on CNN claiming she “couldn’t give a f*** about the offer of prayers, if there’s nothing else.”
There is no confirmation that his Tweet had anything to do with the interview or whether Rubio even saw the interview.
Without basis, technology outlet Mashable published an article claiming that Rubio “is more concerned about a naughty word used in a news report” than he is about the most recent mass shooting. The author of the article simply melts down and recommends seven things Rubio should be “more worried about than whether or not someone said the word ‘f***’ in a news report.”
“Get the f**k on it, Marco,” the article concludes (although the article had the f-word spelled out).
Rubio has earned a reputation for being someone who isn’t at all ashamed to stand up for his values and beliefs, as you can see from this brief snapshot of his Twitter account:
It’s not good that people increasingly get news & information only from sources that confirm what they want to hear. It’s terrible that their is increasingly no space for nuance or 3rd way on any issue. If media doesn’t think they have contributed to this they are very mistaken.

Politics on both sides so tribal it reaches dining,entertainment & sports & where being nasty to those on other side is a sign of commitment to your “political tribe” isn’t far removed from irrational gang rivalries driven by what neighborhood you live in or what colors you wear
— Marco Rubio (@marcorubio) June 25, 2018
100% correct: “Individuals emerge out of families, communities,faiths,neighborhoods & nations” not the other way around. What happens when those things break down? You look for a sense of belonging in a political tribe & your politics becomes your identity https://t.co/F8r684Oljt
— Marco Rubio (@marcorubio) June 26, 2018
Rubio hasn’t backed down from his stance either:
The LORD is my strength and my shield, in whom my heart trusts. I am helped, so my heart rejoices; with my song I praise him. Psalms 28:7
— Marco Rubio (@marcorubio) June 30, 2018
At the end of the day, this is such a non-issue that the media deserves to be the butt of jokes and brutal mockery for even attacking Rubio over it. I
f you’re a professional journalistic news outlet, have some decency and not use foul language in your articles. It makes you look uneducated.
Sure, there can be a legitimate use for strong language in certain situations, but when it’s used so nonchalantly it loses its power, a lesson these folks have yet to learn.

God’s Incredible Truth About Special Needs Adoption
Making room in your home, and in your heart, for a child who is not biologically yours is an amazing reflection of God’s grace and adoption of sinners, but it is not without its hardships and struggles.
Adopting a child with special needs can increase the tension in an already difficult process, and so many of these precious children end up without families because of what their care would entail.
When God adopted us into His kingdom, however, he didn’t hesitate for our flaws and imperfections, and the adoptive family who mirrors this finds such an immense reward.
In a heartwarming piece for Relevant Magazine, author Scarlet Hiltibidal shares her amazing experience with adopting a little girl from China with special needs and the lessons God taught her through it all.
Ya Zhu was almost four, but she couldn’t walk and wasn’t potty trained. There were concerns about her cognitive development.
Many doctors and specialists said we ought to proceed with ‘great hesitation.’ One told us not to move forward at all. They all agreed there must be something else very wrong with Ya Zhu because her delays were so significant.
But my husband and I managed to stay mostly peaceful. We didn’t know if Ya Zhu would heal and recover. We didn’t know how hard things would be. We didn’t know if she’d be a joyful child, but we decided to rename her ‘Joy.’ We hoped and prayed adopting her would give her hope and a future.
While embarking on the journey of adoption and knowing full well you are in for a challenge can surely cause a healthy degree of apprehension, Hiltibidal says she and her husband, by God’s grace, were able to proceed without an ounce of fear in their hearts.
God was leading us to Joy, and He was with us. He had come through in so many ways: checks from strangers to cover adoption fees at exactly the right time, comforting words from the Bible, people who moved our anxious hearts toward rest, doors opening and closing and freelance jobs falling out of the sky exactly as our adoption agency was asking for another payment. God was with us. He kept proving He was in the process and supporting it and leading it. We weren’t afraid.
In a moment of raw, authentic honesty, Hiltibidal reveals that it wasn’t until she actually met her new daughter that fear crept in.
We were convinced Joy would never walk, never learn, never leave diapers. I wondered if our family would ever laugh again. If we’d ever have an easy Saturday at the park. I wondered how much wheelchairs cost and what my other children would miss out on because of this decision we’d made.
But right there, in the middle of the scariest moment of the entire process, God reached down and touched Hiltibidal’s heart to remind her of one of His deepest truths.
He reminded me that I was, and so often still am, a child with special needs who doesn’t know how to rest in the love of her adoptive Parent. He reminded me that I am the little girl with broken ears and broken eyes and my hands clenched around everything I can grab, and yet He walked into this broken world so He could adopt me into His family.
Hiltibidal draws us back to Romans 8:15, which says, “For you did not receive the spirit of slavery to fall back into fear, but you have received the Spirit of adoption as sons, by whom we cry, ‘Abba! Father!’”
Emboldened to follow the clear path God had set before her, no matter the challenges, Hiltibidal began to see His faithfulness and power in their new lives with Joy.
Joy is five now. She’s more than doubled in size since her adoption, is fluent in sign language and actually advanced in communication according to an evaluation from her school. With a hearing aid, she can hear and understand English, and after a year of physical therapy, her therapist suggested we discontinue her services because Joy no longer needs the extra help.
Life with Joy has become such an amazing blessing for her family. Not only does she enrich their lives with all the love, hugs, and learning experiences a child comes with, her special needs point the Hiltibidals to the Gospel on a daily basis.
In my life, God has used the world of special needs to make me stop depending on my life plans and my strength. Instead, He’s offered me His plan and His strength. When Joy’s special needs caused her to depend on me, I had no choice but to take my weakness to God.
I’m not strong. I’m not powerful. I’m not ‘normal.’ I’m as dependent as my special needs daughter. We are all dependent on the power of God for our next breath. Resting in that reality is what can give you and me the ability to look around and reach out and meet the needs of others, the way God reached down from Heaven to meet ours.
God has this wonderful way of structuring our lives such that we endure challenges designed specifically to draw us closer to Him and to teach us to be like Him. When those challenges involve our children, what a wonderful insight we gain into the heart of our Father in Heaven.
All It Took Was $6, A Thunderstorm, And A “God Thing” To Launch This Country Star’s Career
Did you know that every single detail in your life is a thread in an intricate tapestry woven together by the Master? Where you’re born, the friends you’ll make, who you’ll marry, the jobs you land, the ministries you serve, that’s all God’s beautiful orchestration.
He has a perfect will, and try as we might, we’re his creatures and we can’t rush Him or outrun Him. It’s not our time to shine until God says so.
That’s the incredible lesson fledgling country star Russell Dickerson had to learn the hard way.
Dickerson, a Belmont University grad, had tried to make waves in the country music scene for years. He’d landed a record deal way back in 2010, but it had “definitely been a slow journey,” he shared with Fox News, describing the trials he went through trying to “get big” before it was truly his time.
“We had no money, no budget, no nothing and we had been turned down, turned down, turned down,” the singer recalled.
“The biggest first step was our music video [that] my wife shot,” Dickerson said, retelling the frustrated moments that led up to his big break.
Dickerson and his wife, Kailey, finally had enough and decided to try their hand at recording a music video: “We’re like, alright, we’re going to do this on our own.”
“So we shot this music video for ‘Yours’ and if you watch it on YouTube,” the singer explains, “it’s just me walking down a road and my wife is in my SUV just shooting out of the back and it just starts raining and there’s lightning everywhere.”
What might of seemed like the end result of years of failure and frustration to the Dickersons was really just God’s perfect timing, all the way down to the thunderstorm that gave the video such an exciting vibe.
“It was this God moment, totally,” he said.
God wasn’t done with the Dickersons yet, though. Not long after the video, which cost just six dollars to film (possibly the gas for the SUV?), an industry exec reached out to Dickerson and the following events just “snowballed into this perfect storm” that finally gave his career wings.
Ultimately, Dickerson says, if God gave him this dream, God was going to be the one to make it a reality.
“I feel like God’s given me this dream of being on stage and writing a song, even of getting a tour bus…All of these dreams he put into my mind and into my heart are finally coming to fruition.”
The good, the bad, the frustrating, the hopeless, the glorious, every part of our lives is in God’s hands, and we don’t believe in a God who can fail. The next time you find yourself, like Dickerson, struggling against the waves, stop, turn to God, and watch His perfect timing unfold.
