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.
[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.
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?
The comics reveal the bias in the media all too well. The narrative was that the Times Square bomber had to be a Tea Party activist. But alas, it was actually an Islamic radical terrorist, whom we shall not say anything negative about according to New York City Mayor Bloomberg. We can disrespect normal, law-abiding Americans all day, but can’t say anything about Muslims, or, illegal aliens. Good thing there was no racial profiling going on during this investigation. Can’t let the obvious facts get in the way of an investigation.
