To the editor: A celebration of sorts occurred earlier this month. The 50th HIPOW Dinner was the finale to a weekend’s worth of events, all in support of the Catholic Schools of Fairbanks. Sen. Lisa Murkowski, a graduate of Monroe Catholic School, made her usual guest appearance.
Being the 50th year, I wasn’t surprised to hear that Lisa had attended. There was a slight glitch that night, a miscommunication of sorts. Sen. Murkowski did not have a seat at the head table, a place prominence (Mark 12:38-39). Those running the show resolved the dilemma quickly. Lisa sat at the head table.
The Hebrews celebrated the Jubilee (Lev 25:13) — a return to what was lost — every 50th year. What had been given up/sold was returned during the Jubilee year. As some believe, God is at work and some of his work can be clearly seen on a Jubilee year (author Jonathan Cahn in “The Oracle”). A return to God, specifically on a Jubilee.
Did they teach Sen. Murkowski when life begins when she attended the Catholic school? Did she listen to any of the Bible stories? The Canaanites sacrificed their children to a god called Baal for a so-called better life. What is happening today for a so-called good life? Was Planned Parenthood selling baby parts? Why does she appear to be married to them?
HIPOW has been quite accommodating to Lisa, as was witnessed of her placement at the head table. My children call me out for my hypocrisy, as they should. I still love them for telling me I was in the wrong. Christians, it’s OK to point out Lisa’s hypocrisy. We are told Christians should forgive. That doesn’t mean we should be silent.
A Jubilee. A return to God. A return to what was lost. How far from God is Lisa?
