While speaking in Ankara, Turkey this week, President Obama made an astonishing proclamation. He claimed, “We do not consider ourselves a Christian nation.” Instead, he said, “We are a nation of citizens”, essentially assigning fealty to ‘the state’ over fealty to God. The world listened, and nodded. Back home in the U.S., Newsweek editor Jon Meacham welcomed The End of Christian America: “The decline and | Read More »
Principles mean more than favorability to the Pope? Heaven forbid!
Originally on The Point. Pope Benedict XVI has sparked international outrage with his statements regarding his rejection of using condoms to fight the AIDS epidemic. From time to time I see this happen, and I never understand why people suddenly act outraged at teachings the Catholic Church has always held. The Catholic Church rejects the use of condoms because they create a barrier to life | Read More »
Creator-Friendly Bus Slogans
Lighting a candle, on the side of a bus: Atheists have started advertising on buses in the UK. Do you want to see your own message on the side of a bus? Well now’s your chance. For example: “I’m a bus. I’m telling you there’s no God. Trust me. I mean, have I ever left you standing at the curb?” Or: “There’s probably no Dog. | Read More »
Happy New Year.
Yes, I am still here and kicking. I am simply needed to take a much needed break. There are many things which are on my mind in the forthcoming 2009 year including who Americans will turn to in their time of need: Government, or God. This may sound like a silly question, but in times past it always seems that the American public at large | Read More »
To Barack & Michelle Obama
Barack and Michelle Obama, you’re the ones trying to make this Presidential Race about ethnicity. We “Whiteys’ as Michelle refers to us are the ones who have opened our arms to all races, all countries and all religions. We’r e not sitting here on our soap box trying to derail Barack due to race. We believe in “One Nation Under God With Liberty and Justice | Read More »
Nebraska State Senator’s Lawsuit Against God Tossed Out, But Not For The Reason You’d Think.
Once again, I am left speechless, along with laughing and crying at the same time for what has become of our country, our judicial system and some of our people. I was intending to get all bitingly snarky on every sentence of this story, but I won’t. I don’t know if I’d stop short of calling for permanent mental ward confinement…….for myself. This case was | Read More »
View From The North – Franken up in Minn.
Al Franken is an unhinged moron who is close to being elected to the Senate. IS MINNASOTA INSANE!!! Apparently if you are a Dem anything is possible. I hate to sound conspiratorial but I think the Dems and ACORN have over the last eight years guaranteed enough votes in swing states to make the difference in key elections. Great candidates like Michael Steel and many | Read More »
C17Wife has encouraged me to speak up.
WARNINGThis is a Biblical perspective and intended for Christians and their ilk. May have adverse effects on trolls. After reading the numerous comments on C17Wifes’s diary and having much personal rumination over this election cycle I thought I would share my personal and biblical perspective on God’s will. I do not claim to be a biblical scholar and I do not profess to be a | Read More »
A Farewell Speech..from the First G. W. (G.Washington, that is)
George Washington’s Farewell Speech “Observe good faith and justice towards all Nations; cultivate peace and harmony with all. Religion and Morality enjoin this conduct; and can it be, that good policy does not equally enjoin it? It will be worthy of a free, enlightened, and, at no distant period, a great Nation, to give to mankind the magnanimous and too novel example of a people | Read More »
STOP THE PRESSES,YOU FORGOT ABOUT..GOD.
My dear fellow, I believe that a single thought is an opinion, but a written one becomes validation. You, wise sir, are not alone in your private fears. I have mulled these EXACT thoughts for months, as soon as I witnessed the ‘left handed writing on the wall’. The thoughts that you have extolled are the very notions that have lead me to lead the | Read More »

WHAT’S HAPPENING TO OUR COUNTRY?
It is shocking how so many people are enamored by form over substance. Where’s the beef? Such a Hollywood mentality is so shallow. Pretty boys and smooth talkers don’t impress me. However the battle scars of dedicated sacrificial service and the wrinkles of mature wisdom do! I enjoy Hollywood entertainment. But we need much more than entertainment! We are in a national/global crisis. The artificial | Read More »
The American Left Hates God, The American Right Loves America–I didn’t say it, USA Today did!
In a review of this weekends movie box office, USA Today admits that two movies (An American Carol and Religulous) had politically motivated audiences supporting them. Audiences had political offerings on the left and right. An American Carol, a send-up of Michael Moore, did a respectable $3.8 million, good for No. 9. Religulous, the skewering of religion from comedian Bill Maher, was 10th with $3.5 | Read More »

View From the North
I am a Canadian – educated in the US – and often watch the US elections scared to death of a President Gore, Kerry or now Obama. You guys continue to make the right choice although the elections are much closer than they should be. It looks like you might elect McCain, thank goodness, President Obama would move the US to the left of Canada, | Read More »
