I love Allen West’s forthrightness. We need more men willing to speak up and speak the truth with honesty. Here is Allen West on the recent terror attacks in Boston
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
Pastor Youcef still needs our prayers plus an UPDATE — as of today, Pastor Youcef is still thought to be alive in Iran even though he has been sentenced to death for converting from Islam to Christianity.
We know that God ultimately holds Pastor Youcef’s future in His hands, so we trust that whatever happens, God will be glorified and the gospel will go forward. But we still must pray for his deliverance and ask the LORD to have him spared from the radicals of Islam.
Here is the latest video on the case:
Not Afraid to Tell Her Story — Here is a post about Athena Dean who was involved in a terrible cult of mind control for the past 12 years. While in it, she lost her husband, family, home, business and car all because she fell under the Satanic control of cult-leader Tim Williams. Her business was running Wine Press, which was a successful small business until Williams and company showed up on the scene. Like many cults, Williams has left a long trail of broken Christians in his path.
Remember, we are to follow Christ, not men, especially when they twist Scripture to support their arguments. Whenever someone says that you should do something because God said so, and they point to the Bible to support their case, realize that this isn’t how Christianity operates. Athena also has a piece of the tactics of the cults.
Seven States File Lawuit over Obama Mandate — Good news. We see that seven states which include Texas, Florida, Michigan, Nebraska, Ohio, Oklahoma and South Carolina, are filing a lawsuit in district court to stop the Obama mandate that would require religious institutions to provide health care that would provide abortions and contraceptions that are against their religious beliefs. As we saw in my post yesterday, the so-called compromise, was not a compromise at all and the mandate as it was written is still the mandate that is being required by Health and Human Services, which is a violation of our rights guaranteed under the First Amendment. The mandate demands that those who believe it is fundamentally wrong to kill a child would still have to pay for services that kill children. With this issue and the issue of Arizona’s immigration law, it’s sad to see that Americans greatest opponent to freedom and liberty is our own president. Alas, but we tried to warn our friends and families who were so ga-ga over this man, yet they would not listen.
Obama Confident He Has Another Five Years — not if we have anything to say about it. King Obama declared to Univision that he has another five years to set his plans in place. There he is quoted as saying the following:
“Well, first of all … my presidency is not over,” Obama, who just a few months ago described himself as an underdog in the presidential race, said in a telephone interview. ”I’ve got another five years coming up. We’re going to get this done,” he said.
It really is hard to say that Pakistan is our ally. They were not trying very hard to find Osama bin Laden, even though he was right under their noses. My guess is that they were laughing at us the entire time OBL was living there, all six years of it. It was probably the inside joke for many in their intelligence department.
“Ha ha! Those stupid Americans. They couldn’t find OBL even if we told them! Ha ha!”
So now they scream about sovereignty and all. It would probably do Pakistani some good to remember it’s better to tell the truth than to lie. They could have just said: “We are not your allies! We like OBL. He’s living here as a faithful, Pakistani citizen. Now leave us alone.”
But I guess that national sovereignty would have quickly vanished in another way, shortly after our F-16s started raining down the continual Thousand Points of Light started by Bush 41 in the first wave against terrorism.
Also, allow me to give a portion of Ann Coulter’s view of things. Always worth a chuckle when it’s not so obviously true and painful:
The CIA stepped up the search for Osama bin Laden last week after becoming as sick of royal wedding coverage as the rest of us.
American intelligence operations located Osama by following his trusted couriers, whose names were given up by al-Qaida members during harsh interrogations at CIA black sites under President Bush.
Yes, the same interrogations endlessly denounced by the entire Democratic Party (save Joe Lieberman), the mainstream media, and an especially indignant Jane Mayer in The New Yorker.
The most-wanted terrorist in the world was living in a moldy, million-dollar mansion in a gated community just outside of Islamabad. It took the CIA five years to figure out the four-digit code to get in.
One important missed clue was that Osama was living at 72 Virgins Way. He might still be alive today if only he hadn’t borrowed his neighbor’s shoulder-mounted rocket launcher and never returned it.
Our mighty Navy SEALs not only put a bullet through Osama’s head, but carried off his computers, disks and hard drives. So far, all they’ve revealed is that Osama had multiple Netflix rentals of “Rendition,” “In the Valley of Elah,” “Fahrenheit 9/11″ and “Love Actually.”
I know Constitutionally that the Muslims who want to build a mosque next to Ground Zero in New York have every right to do so. I still can’t help but feel that there is a terrible injustice to all of this. Read about here. Islam is a religion of evil. They seek to wipe out all those who don’t adhere to their brand of religion and even wipe out some who do hold to it. It is sad that we don’t have the moral fiber to tell them to take their mosque and evil religion elsewhere.
But alas, that is one of the weaknesses of our Constitution. It allows those who hate God and His people to flourish in the same society that was set up by God and His people. Satan is always using God’s word in order to bring about his own pursuits. The only comfort we can take in all this is that God will have none of that on Judgment Day. Those who hate this country, and the predominant religion of this country for 230 years, will be judged by Christ Himself. There will be no miscarriages of justice on that day. That is the only comfort I can find in this. Trust in the Lord. He will bring about justice on the evil of the earth. He is sovereign. We are not.
Angel has more on it here.
