Roundup

T.D. Jakes = prosperity gospel false teacher.  MacDonald and Driscoll = hypocrites.  Why didn’t they ask Jakes about his in the meeting where they were buying his anti-trinitarian heresy rationalizations?  Hat tip: Sola Sisters

What working at Wal-Mart taught a young conservative woman about the poor

Here are just two short anecdotes:

a) People ignoring me on their iPhones while the state paid for their food. (For those of you keeping score at home, an iPhone is at least $200, and requires a data package of at least $25 a month. If a person can spend $25+ a month so they can watch YouTube 24/7, I don’t see why they can’t spend that money on food.)

d) A man who ran a hotdog stand on the pier in Portland, Maine used to come through my line. He would always discuss his hotdog stand and encourage me to “come visit him for lunch some day.” What would he buy? Hotdogs, buns, mustard, ketchup, etc. How would he pay for it? Food stamps. Either that man really likes hotdogs, or the state is paying for his business. Not okay.

I really appreciate Pastor Foster’s ministry.

The following is DL Foster’s speech at the Jan. 17, 2012 AFTAH press conference outside the Southern Poverty Law Center, featuring African American and pro-family Christian leaders condemning the SPLC’s “hate group” politics. Foster is a pastor and the founder of Gay Christian Movement Watch, based in Atlanta:

Steve Jobs: ‘I’m glad I didn’t end up as an abortion’ – I’m glad he didn’t end up as one, and I’m glad I didn’t either (I was born 10 yrs. less one day before the Roe v Wade decision).  Too bad he didn’t make his views more visible while he was alive.  Or maybe he just thought it was important that he was alive but not the people who bought his goods?

How Barack Obama and other big government statists really bankroll their reelections – great video.  This image below the video explains most of it: Even if we cut 100% of non-entitlement spending (i.e., zero military, zero infrastructure, zero politicians, etc.) we don’t take in enough money to pay entitlements.  The deficit grows every year and we’ll be like Greece — only on a much larger and more devastating scale — in less time than you’d think.

  1. Re: Steve Jobs. I think he knew that most of Apple’s customers (especially the hardcore ones who have the lifelong brand loyalty that the company depends on – you know, the kind that insisted on having an iMac or a MacBook or an iPod even though there were better and cheaper alternatives available)….tend to be extremely liberal.

    Most liberals tend to be pro-choice, if not outright pro-abortion. Jobs knew that and making his views on abortion known, would have been bad for business.

  2. I started the post laughing at the hypocrisy displayed, then I moved to abject disgust with the Wal-Mart lady, rooted for Foster and Jobs, and then ended shaking my head at the “vote pump.”

    What a roller-coaster ride!

  3. I have to disagree on the hypocrisy post. While I don’t track McDonald much, I think these guys have both made their views clear on both modalism and the prosperity gospel. The fact that they met with Jakes in a forum (at least, the ones I’VE heard) designed to discuss and bat around differing views is, in my view, hardly a call to light the torches and call out the posse…

So, what do you think?
