Good news, for now: Great grandmother fires at mugger with legally-owned, legally-carried handgun. But the politicians protected by people with guns all day, every day want to take away the rights of people to defend themselves. If you think they just want to take away “assault” weapons (which is so broadly defined that it could include anything), then you are hopelessly naïve. Once again, the 2nd Amendment is not about hunting.
More good news: Union Bosses’ Bad Week: Percentage of Americans Union-Free Now Highest in 70 Years. If only the public sector didn’t have unions, we’d be doing much better. What could go wrong with unions and politicians giving each other your money?
Unfortunately for taxpayers, though, the Bureau of Labor Statistics’ numbers do spell out the continuing dilemma that, in whole numbers, there are more government workers unionized (7.3 million) than those in the private sector (7 million). Yet, it is the private sector that pays the public sector’s salaries.
In any case, as it has been almost every year since 1983, this week in January was another bad week for union bosses.
Pastor Timothy on the potential for the Boy Scouts to permit gay leaders – If BSA goes gay, we go away.
The same people that will mock the Boy Scouts for not taking gays will also mock them when boys are abused. It is so unfathomable how far we’ve sunk that people can’t see the obvious parallel: Should the Girl Scouts allow men to camp with girls? Shame on the BSA Board for even considering this.
The Utter Absurdity of The Baby God-Man — I was reflecting on the same themes lately. Our claims are indeed outrageous — but true!
The historical-biblical Christian faith is a bit ridiculous.
Many basic doctrines have a built-in absurdity to them that offends the natural mind.
Don’t believe me? Just have someone tell the elementary tenets of the Christmas story back to you:
“So the God of the universe gets a young virgin girl pregnant, she gives birth to His infant divine Son in a stable in the middle of nowhere, angels rejoice and hardly anyone else in the world notices?”
“thirty years later this same God Man all of a sudden starts walking on water, multiplying food, and healing all diseases while claiming authority over everything in the world. Despite all this most people reject Him and He goes to a Roman cross to die a brutal death that shakes the earth. Then he raises Himself up from the dead through a tomb, walks and talks with people for a few days, and finally floats back up to heaven to be with the God that sent Him down here. Oh yeah, and this dude’s gonna come back with fire and stuff a second time?….
And I’m supposed to believe all that and follow Him right?”
To which we say: “Amen!”
. . . In the fourth century the Roman Emperor, Julian, equated Christianity with atheism and lamented over its influence:
“Atheism [I.e. the Christian faith!] has been specially advanced
through the loving service rendered to strangers, and through their care for the burial of the dead. It is a scandal that there is not a single Jew who is a beggar, and that the godless Galileans care not only for their own poor but for ours as well; while those who belong to us look in vain for the help that we should render them.”
I was just thinking the other day about how presumptuous it is to schedule a revival, then I saw this.
On Thursday one of my daughters and I were lamenting the seeker-sensitive church movement. As an example I noted how churches seem to find excuses to do dances during “worship” services to songs like Thriller.
The next day I came across this video of a church doing an elaborate production of Thriller, only with the Grinch thrown in. These people are beyond parody. Hat tip: Museum of Idolatry.
Please give me a “boring” service in a plain building where the Bible is preached accurately verse-by-verse and theologically sound songs are done.
Admitted terrorist and Obama friend Bill Ayers to be keynote speaker at the Association of Teacher Educators. Need any other reasons to get out of public schools?
He was involved in Chicago’s “Days of Rage” riot in 1969 and went underground as a fugitive from justice after an accidental Greenwich Village townhouse explosion in 1970 killed three Weather Underground members who were preparing a bomb that prematurely detonated.
Ayers admitted in a 2001 book that he participated in bombings of the New York City Police Department headquarters, the U.S. Capitol Building and the Pentagon in the early 1970s.
A sample of the wit and wisdom of Bill Ayers: “Kill all the rich people. … Bring the revolution home. Kill your parents.”
The avowed communist revolutionary Ayers is best known for grooming Barack Hussein Obama for office, as part of the same strategy of destroying America from within its own institutions that led him to abandon bombs for a career in education.
Republicans should ramp up efforts to combat voter fraud. Obama might have won without the rampant fraud in many areas (sure, Obama got 100.00000% of the vote in countless precincts!), but their success in cheating will only embolden them now. Do not be afraid of RINOs.
Former Secretary of State Colin Powell says the Republican Party should abandon its efforts to curb voter participation through voter ID laws…
“The Republican Party should be a party that says, ‘We want everybody to vote,’ and make it easier to vote and give them a reason to vote for the party, not to find ways to keep them from voting at all.”
Lest anyone take this phony rhetoric at face value, I’ll translate: “Republicans had better not challenge us on systemic voter fraud, or out comes the race card yet again.”
Massive Rally in France against Same-Sex ‘Marriage’ Draws at Least 340,000; Poll Support for ‘Gay Marriage’ Plummets – It isn’t inevitable. If only people would get better informed on how to make the case for real marriage!
Remember, media bias isn’t just what they tell you, it is what they don’t tell you.
