Newsflash: Man Has No Impact on the Climate — Well, that is the headline that should be stated, but given the Left’s tendency to libel anyone who disagrees with them and their looney positions, we won’t see it. I’m referring to the constant barrage of “climate change” politics that has been taking place for the last 20 years. To doubt their claims is to be labeled a “denier” because you are going against consensus science, which isn’t science at all. These same people have tried to label the deniers as those who are akin to the misbelief that the world was flat back in 1492. Please realize the irony there. It was the “consensus scientists” of that day that believed the world was flat.
I hate to be the one to point this out, but it needs to be said. Donald Sterling has every right to be a racist bigot if he so chooses. What is far more heinous is that we are giving credence to the Thought Police in our culture by allowing them to seek to punish Sterling for his beliefs.
For those of you who have not heard of Donald Sterling, I hadn’t until this past weekend, he owns the Los Angeles Clippers, an NBA team in the playoffs. Apparently there is a recording of him telling his girlfriend that he doesn’t want her hanging around any minorities. Sterling apparently doesn’t like minorities even though his team is full of them, his fans are full of minorities, in a league that is basically followed by minorities. So for him to say something like he did, isn’t the smartest move the man has ever made. It shows that he has a racists attitude and thinks of minorities are inferior to himself, and his buddies.
[Note to my readers: the following is an incident that occurred back in the winter of 1984. I neither condone the actions, attitudes or events herein. This is merely what happened, as a part of my life, especially the part which Christ redeemed me from...]
My face was covered with fire ants, a cop had a foot on my wrists which were behind my back and was I glad to be alive, except for the part in which I was “about to be arrested,” and “those damn fire ants.”
“Officer! There are fire ants on my face.” I was trying to get his attention as he conversed with his fellow officers, who were busy arresting my three buddies, Richard, James, and Byron. Apparently, out of the 22 officers who moments before had had their guns drawn, safeties off, and pointed in our direction, they just couldn’t find four pair of handcuffs between the 22 of them. This is why one officer had his foot of my wrists and seemed perfectly content to let the fire ants camp out on my face and neck.
Yesterday on Foxnews, they ran a story about a school in Alabama where the principal was trying to ban the term “Easter Bunny” from the vocabulary of the students in an attempt to keep anyone from being offended. Yes, this is political correctness run amok.
As Christians, I don’t think we should be the least bit offended at all. Especially given the fact that the Easter Bunny has nothing to do with the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Let the loon ban the term, and we should join her in doing so, given that the bunny is man’s tradition, not anything biblical.

Another black preacher that gets the truth of the gospel. It’s not about voting for Obama because he is black. It’s about voting against Obama because he is opposed to the principles of Christianity. Bishop Harry Jackson points out four reasons he cannot vote for Obama.
Anti-Bullying is Really About Limiting Free Speech – Neil has an excellent piece on the anti-bullying movement, and how it is just another ploy for liberals to impose their warped view of control over free speech. Here is one of the key paragraphs:
In case there is anyone who still doesn’t grasp that antibullying is a euphemism for imposing liberal totalitarianism, Ontario’s Minister of Education Laurel Broten spells it out (please excuse the butchered English):
Texas A&M Aggies Move Up in the Polls — They may not last long in the polls, but right now the Texas Aggies are ranked at No. 18/20/20 in the BCS/AP/USA Polls. That truly is exciting, given it is their first year in the SEC. They were predicted to be doormats since they had a new coach, with a new offense and in a new conference. So far, they have managed to hold their own and are 5-1 in the season.
However, they are about to enter the really tough part of the season this coming Saturday when they face No. 6/6/6 LSU in College Station, TX. This will be their biggest test since opening the season against Florida.
After this Saturday, the Aggies go on the road to face Auburn, Mississippi State and then Alabama… all… on… the… road. Hopefully they can come out of that road trip with 2 wins.
Finally — I’m praying that Gov. Mitt Romney wins even bigger tonight in the debate than he did last time. I’m praying that the American people will have their eyes opened to the true Obama and that we will not be fooled again by the man who believes that America needs to be cut down to size.
Obama Stands For Islam — but then, are we surprised about this? He is anti-First Amendment in his stance. People slander Jesus Christ all the time and yet, you don’t see Christians rioting and killing people over it. Only the religion of peace does that.
Divorce Rate Among Devoted Christians Much Lower Than National Average — For years we have been hearing that the divorce rate among Christians was just as bad as that among non-Christians… at 50 percent. That stat is erroneous and misleading in nature as well. But there is a new study out showing that those who are devoted Christians actually have a lower divorce rate than those non-believers. Here the key poing:
People who seriously practice a traditional religious faith—whether Christian or other—have a divorce rate markedly lower than the general population.
What the study shows is that the more a couple is committed to their beliefs, the less likely they are to become divorced.
Gloria Jackson Show — I like the following video from the Gloria Jackson Show. She interviews Comedian Brad Stine about freedom of speech. The more I listened to it the more I like Brad Stine. Not only does he discuss the problem of Marxism and political correctness, but he goes on to talk about the true equality we have because of Christ and Christianity.
BTW, I actually started paying more attention to Gloria Jackson when I was listening to a debate between a Calvinist and Armenian recently and she was one of the people who asked a question during the Q&A.
Paganini Humor — Another video that I have found very humorous, and entertaining are those put out by PAgagNINI, a couple of violinist who put humor to playing music. The following is one of my favorites in which they cover U2’s With or Without You. It’s beautiful. (Hattip Andrew M.)
And there is this rendition of Pachelbel’s Canon in D
I don’t really keep up with what is going on in Hollywood, so it is a surprise to see one star being openly pro-life. Kathy Ireland was awarded this week by “the YWCA Greater Los Angeles with the 2011 Phenomenal Woman of the Year Award at the “Saluting Women Who Are Instruments of Change” ceremony.” She also happens to be extremely pro-life and said that Planned Parenthood should not receive government funding. This shows she has true courage to stand up for her beliefs, especially when the Hollywood crowd is so opposed to those beliefs.
The other interesting aspect of her position is that she came to the pro-life point of view based solely on the science of the issue.
“I’ve never set out to win a popularity contest. I came from [being previously pro-choice], but when I was confronted with the science – and I spoke to top scientists throughout our country asking, ‘Would you please just show me some shred of evidence that the unborn is not a human being?’ and no one has been able to show me any, and I will continue to fight for those human rights until someone can show me otherwise,” she continued. “So a lot of people get mad at me, but that’s okay. I listen to criticism because sometimes there are things to learn, even if it’s wrapped in a nasty package.”
I just wanted to make sure I voiced my opposition to all the liberals who display the ridiculous “Coexist” bumper stickers. They are not giving this bumper sticker enough thought, for as long as one religion is oppressing the others, as does Islam, then this will never be a reality.
UPDATE: Since posting this back in November I’ve started watching for the bumper sticker just to see the type of people who put on their cars. In the last week, I’ve seen the sticker twice. Once on a car driven by a guy that looked like a 1960s hold over with a job, otherwise known as a college professor. The other was on the car of a young woman. I took it that she likes the idea, but is clueless as to why it will not work. I didn’t get a chance to speak with either party, so my statements are based on my observations, which are limited at best.
How would one go about speaking to such people given the chance? What would you say?
Not content to be a constant thorn in our side by demanding imaginary rights, gay activists have targeted a Chick-fil-A in Pennsylvania for being bigoted. Chick-fil-A’s sin, according to the gay activists? They promised to donate chicken sandwiches to an upcoming marriage conference in February.
Yes, apparently the gay lobby can’t handle the franchises being generous towards those who actually believe marriage is only between one man and one woman. (I think this is more of that civility that Obama spoke about on Wednesday night. See here for more details.) Read about it at Townhall.com and here.
I hope Chick-fil-A doesn’t skip a beat in making their donations to those whom they support. I hope they let the term “bigot” roll off of them like a compliment. In other words, if we are going to be accused of being bigots because we stand for that was is right and just in the eyes of God, then take it as a compliment. I’m tired of those who cower whenever the term is bandied about by those on the left. (Perhaps someone should come up with a picture of a badge that we can display whenever we are called bigots by the left — an irony of ironies because they are so bigoted themselves.)
BTW, CEO Don Cathy did state that the corporation values all people and have made many contributions over the years. You can see the video at the Townhall.com link above. Allow me to also say that all people do have intrinsic value because they are made in God’s image, even gay people. But that does not mean that we sanction or approve of their sin. As Christians, we are to stand for the Light of the World, with His light, which is His truth. No where does the Bible ever sanction homosexuality or even hint that there is such a thing as “gay marriage.” God defines marriage early in the Bible and human history: between a man and a woman.
In fact, He goes on to say that this union is what is meant by mankind being in the image of God. Genesis 1:27 So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. This is why homosexuality is labeled as “an abomination” to the Lord. Those who practice such acts are abusing the image of God in them (Leviticus 18:21-23). It is interesting that this sin, which is an abomination, is so closely linked to idolatry. The two go hand in hand because those who practice this sin have their pleasure as their god, not the living and true God of the Bible. He is to be our pleasure and all-in-all, nothing else.
The point is that we should not back down from our positions just because some leftist sinner calls us a name. Chick-fil-A needs to continue espousing those beliefs that the company was founded upon and not let some immoral group of people persuade them to do otherwise. Remember that the Word of God says that God’s wrath rests upon these people, and that they are debased and immoral. Since this is the case, we should not be surprised that their view of things, especially that which God has ordained such as marriage, is warped and debased as well.
The best thing that Chick-fil-A and all Christians can do is continue to stand for the truth and not buckle under the politically correct posture trying to be foisted upon us by those like Obama and the gay lobby.
Side Note: If we do a Bigot badge, the acronym stands for “Being In God’s Only True Son). Someone will have to come up with a BIGOT badge… with a cross on it.
