Islam - The Religion of Peace

If you don't read another blog when you leave here, please go and read this story of Christian persecution at the hands of Islam.

Every politician in America needs to read this. Everyone who loves their freedom should read this. Everyone who thinks for one minute that we should give up the fight against terrorism should read this.

Comment Moderation

I've decided to disable comment moderation. I have not had anyone abuse the privilege of commenting on my blog, and I can always turn it back on if it is abused. I will not tolerate blasphemy nor profanity. However, I have no problem with those that disagree with me on anything as long as it is done in a civil manner. I also allow anonymous comments, which I've been told by some is a bad idea, but again...I can always change my mind later.

A pretty strong accusation to levy against someone. Over at Eric’s blog, Harry Reid has been accused of treason, and it has caused some controversy.

Article III Section 3 of the US Constitution says:

Section 3. Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying war against them, or in adhering to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort. No person shall be convicted of treason unless on the testimony of two witnesses to the same overt act, or on confession in open court.

Title 18, USCS, (Crimes and Criminal Procedure) Section 2381 of the Federal Statutes which is the Federal Statute implementing Article III, Section 3, of the Constitution, further defines treason as follows:

Whoever, owing allegiance to the United States, levies war against them or adheres to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort within the United States or elsewhere is guilty of treason and shall suffer death, or be imprisoned for not less than five years, and fined not less than $10,000; and shall be incapable of holding office under the United States.

In the case of United States v Haupt, D.C.III., 47 Supp. 836, 839 expanded the definition of treason to mean any act which 'strengthens or tends to strengthen the ability of the enemies of the United States or which weakens or tends to weaken the power of the United States to resist such enemies.'

Based on above, I’m here to say that not only is Harry Reed guilty of treason, but there are others in Congress, in Hollywood, and in the general public as well that are just as guilty. The list, unfortunately, is long. Harry Reed, Alec Baldwin, Cindy Sheehan, Sean Penn, Nancy Pelosi…and others too many to mention. I invite readers to add to the list.

If we don’t get some men and women in political office soon that have some backbone, our country is going to fall from within. I am personally sick of listening to the likes of Reid, Pelosi, and those that would have our troops retreat back to American soil with the Islamofacists dancing on their rooftops and shooting off their mouths and rifles in victory.

As I heard one man say, if Harry Reid insists on saying we’ve lost the war, then let’s make him tell us who won.

That’s right. Make him say it.

The Terrorists Won. Say it, Reid.

If we lost, then they won. Evidently, that’s what you want.

And guess what the terrorists want, Reid.
They want your head. They want your death.
They want the death of your family – your children – your friends.

You are weakening the power of the United States to resist such enemies. You are giving the enemy aid and comfort with your words.
Yes, sir. You are a traitor. You and the rest of your ilk, with tunnel vision that see only one thing – the Presidency.
You insult the fine men and women of our military.
You insult the office of the President.
You insult your countrymen.
And you insult me.

We will NOT tolerate YOUR intolerance! (or "Homoaffirmationism")

The European Parliament has vowed to punish Poland by taking it to court. Poland’s crime? Refusing to allow promotion of homosexuality in its schools.

I said in an earlier post that the new world religion is Environmentalism. But I think I was wrong. As a matter of fact, there is another, stronger and more powerful religion growing in the world today. It’s what I’ll call homoaffirmationism. You see, it’s not enough that a group of people practicing their sinful lifestyle want to be allowed to do so wherever, whenever, and with whomever they please. They want full acceptance and forced affirmation of their lifestyle upon every living creature on the planet – no ifs ands or buts. And their hypocritical cries of intolerance ring in our ears more often and more loudly as time passes.

The EP resolution chastises Poland for "homophobia". The vote was 325 votes to 124, with 150 abstentions – and it called for a “fact-finding mission” to go to Poland, for a "worldwide de-criminalisation of homosexuality", and for “the Commission to take Member States to court if they breach their EU obligations.”

Poland's minister of education responded: "One must limit homosexual propaganda so that children won't have an improper view of family.”

Too bad we don’t have a similar “Minister of Education” in the USA.

Statements made in defense of the traditional family by Polish parliamentarians, were labeled "diatribes", "repulsive", and "hateful". The Polish government was also accused of “hatred”. Statements against Poland were made by representatives of France, the Netherlands, and Italy, among others. A comment worth noting was made by Italy's Giusto Catania, who attacked the church (meaning "Christianity"), which he said “never stopped in expressing hatred toward homosexuals.”

Some representatives from Northern Ireland and Poland walked out of the assembly, and Poland's Konrad Szymanski claimed that the European Parliament was being “led by the nose by a group of extremist politicians."

”But the most powerful response came from Poland's Bogdan Pek. "This was an artificial piece of theatre," he said. "An attempt to carry out an assault on a particular member state that a bunch of liberals and lefties disapprove of." Pek continued, "For God's sake, in the recent histories of your countries there has been persecution - persecution of Jews for example who took refuge in Poland."

"Poland is a tolerant, hospitable country. It is absurd to suggest that Poland is an island of intolerance in Europe. That is an insult and a lie. A cynical manipulation which is designed to pull the wool over the European public's eyes. I protest against that form of manipulation and falsehood," he concluded.”

Hear hear! Maybe we ought to draft Bogdan Pek for President!

Leaders of the European Union governing body made clear that there was to be no tolerance for ideas which would view homosexual acts as unnatural.

No tolerance of ideas?

But…isn’t it the liberals and homosexual activists that are continuously screeching about tolerance?

We will not tolerate your intolerance!

Bill Clinton - Wandering Ambassador

Hillary says if she becomes president…”she has made it very clear that she will, as she says, put her high wattage husband to work as a sort of wandering ambassador of good will.”

What an absolutely perfect position for Bill. I already know what his theme song will be as he travels around.

Well I'm the type of guy who will never settle down
Where pretty girls are well you know that I'm around
I kiss'em and I love'em 'cause to me they're all the same
I hug'em and I squeeze'em they don't even know my name
They call me the wanderer - yeah -the wanderer
I roam around around around around

Oh, well there's Flo on my left arm and there's Mary on my right
And Jenny's the girl that I'll be with tonight
And when she asks me which one I love the best
I'll tear open my shirt and show her Rosie on my chest
'Cause I'm the wanderer - yeah -the wanderer
I roam around around around around

Oh, well I roam from town to town
I go through life without a care
And I'm as happy as a clown
With my two fists of iron but I'm going no where

Oh yeah, I'm the type of guy that likes to roam around
I'm never in one place I roam from town to town
And when I find myself fallin' for some girl
I hop right into that car of mine I drive around the world
Yeah I'm a wanderer yeah the wanderer
I roam around around around around
Lettin' go

Oh yeah, I'm the type of guy that likes to roam around
I'm never in one place I roam from town to town
And when I find myself fallin' for some girl
I hop right into that car of mine drive around the world
'Cause I'm a wanderer yeah the wanderer
I roam around around around around around around
'Cause I'm a wanderer yeah the wanderer
I roam around around around around around around around
'Cause I'm a wanderer I'm a wanderer

Not so Funny

There’s a small United Methodist Church in my neighborhood that has one of those marquees that is changed weekly, with cutsie little sayings (or at least someone there thinks they’re cute) that are, I suppose, meant to draw people from the busy street in to their building for worship, religion, fellowship, maybe even salvation? Many of them are tasteless, in that they belittle what our faith is all about, and Who it is about.

“Body piercing saved my life. Crucifixion: the ultimate body piercing.”

“Need a rest? Come in and use our John. (and Matthew, Mark & Luke)”

I try not to look at the sign, because inevitably I get irritated at the cavalier way in which our faith is so often presented to the lost world.

This week, especially, my stomach turned at the question on their marquee.

Where will you spend eternity? Air-conditioned, or not?”

Is that what hell has been reduced to? A place without air-conditioning? Does the person who came up with this really know what the Bible says about Hell? Do they honestly think a lost person is going to read that and seriously contemplate where they are going to spend eternity?

Hell is not funny.

Hell is not something to laugh at, or to make jokes about. Are we as Christians so smug in our eternal security that we can laugh and make light of a place that the Bible says is “Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched”? (Mark 9:44)

Studies show that most Christians have never witnessed to anyone about their faith. Even fewer have ever led anyone to Christ. How pathetic are we who are saved, and never once consider the fate of our neighbors, our friends, our family, or even our mate? If we knew someone’s plane was going to crash and burn, and everyone in it was going to perish, wouldn’t we do everything we could to keep them from getting on that plane? Or would we make jokes about plane crashes instead?

Too many churches have quit talking about hell. It’s too offensive. It scares people. Let’s just talk about God’s love and leave the part about his holiness and righteous judgment out of it.

Why aren’t more people getting saved in this country? Because churches won’t talk about sin and won’t talk about hell.

A relative of mine whom I love dearly, and who is lost, emailed me a joke about hell. I didn’t respond by witnessing to him. I’ve done that many times in the past. But I did email him back and say, “no offense, but I don’t think the subject of hell is funny. Please don’t send me any more jokes about such a horrible place.” I hope he pondered my feelings for a little while anyway.

Christian, in case you haven’t given hell much thought lately, I’ve posted a few Scriptures for you to review. Stop and think about those in your life that you know are lost. Ask yourself if you’ve been guilty of joking around about hell. Then I challenge you to start taking it seriously – and if you haven’t already, I challenge you to share the truth about it with those loved ones and friends. Let God guide you, of course, but for their sake, don’t ever let them hear you make light of it. It might just make a difference in where they spend their eternity.

The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God.” Psalm 9:17

Let death seize upon them, and let them go down quick into hell: for wickedness is in their dwellings, and among them. As for me, I will call upon God; and the LORD shall save me.” Psalm 55:15-16

Hell and destruction are never full…” Proverbs 27:20

Hell from beneath is moved for thee to meet thee at thy coming: it stirreth up the dead for thee…” Isaiah 14:9

And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.” Matthew 10:28

And if thy hand offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter into life maimed, than having two hands to go into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched:” Mark 9:43

And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom. And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame.” Luke 16:23-24

The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations, and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished:” II Peter 2:9

And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works. And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.” Revelation 20:13-14

And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.” Revelation 19:20

And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.” Revelation 20:10

And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.” Revelation 20:15

Green Guilt

Read an article today that says 1 out of 5 Americans suffers from "Green Guilt".

The survey by Rechargeable Battery Recycling Corporation (RBRC) indicated that people are feeling guilty about their contribution to poluting the environment and want to do more, but don't know where to start or what to do. Twenty percent of us suffer from "green guilt".

Many in the survey admitted to recycling at least to a degree, but 14 percent said they don't recycle at all. And 48 percent doubted that their recycling was really having any positive impact on the environment at all. (So WHY do they do it?)

An RBRC representative said: "We actually found the results of the survey encouraging since most Americans are at least recycling something and just need the proper resources and guidance to help them do more for the environment."

Their spokeman went on to say, "The more things we can keep out of the landfill, the better. Recycling is no longer a luxury, but a necessity. It doesn't have to be hard work - it actually can be easy to be green."

"It is clear that we can do many simple things on a regular basis that have a positive impact on our environment," said best-selling author Danny Seo in the news release. "If everyone did just one thing, the impact for the earth would be considerable... there are hundreds of ways for Americans to 'go green' this Earth Day - thereby truly ridding themselves of 'green guilt."

Green. The new religion.

Instead of going to church, the congregation of this new religion meets at the local recycling center, tithing aluminum cans, rechargeable batteries and cellphones and listening to sermons by the Reverend Al Gore and reciting the Greenpeace handbook.

Guess since I'm in the 14 percent that doesn't recycle at all, I'm probably not welcome at their services. Not that I'd want to go. I already know what is going to destroy the planet. It's not pollution.

Child Sacrifices

I read an article today about an archeological discovery near Mexico City. The remains of several dozen children, ranging from about 5 to 15, were discovered laid out in the same position, facing east, around a shrine to a Toltec god Tlaloc, evidently as the result of a mass child sacrifice. The children had incisions on the vertebrae that suggested they had their throats cut by some sort of stone. Not a lot is known about the Toltecs. They predate the Aztecs, who believed that sacrificed children would become servants to Tlaloc in the next life and bring more rain. Evidently the Toltecs had at least similar beliefs.

I wonder, if humanity lasts that long, if someday archeologists won’t stumble across some landfill in North America and discover the bodies of many fetuses among other "medical waste" that will cause them to ponder what god they were sacrificed to and for what benefit. Maybe the god of convenience?

A sigh of relief at today’s Supreme Court Decision on partial birth abortion (i.e.: infanticide)

Presidential hopefuls’ reactions:

Romney- supports decision
Guiliani – supports decision
McCain – supports decision
Brownback – supports decision
Tancredo – supports decision
Clinton – does not support decision
Biden – does not support decision
Dodd – does not support decision
Edwards – does not support decision
Obama – does not support decision

Cho Seung-Hui - Why He Did It

Everyone with a keyboard is going to speculate as to why he did it.
Everyone with a microphone is going to have an opinion.
Every media pundit is going to do an op ed piece on why he did it.
The list of possibilities is endless. Where does the fault lie?
Gun control advocates
A deprived childhood
A lost love
America’s Educational System
Lack of religion
Sexual repression
Law Enforcement
School Officials
The Media

As I said, the list could go on indefinitely.

The truth is, there is only one answer that really gets to the root of why Cho Seung-Hui did what he did. Anger.

All senseless acts of violence are the result of anger.

Peel back all the layers underneath that loner’s stoic appearance, and you’ll find a spirit of anger. Dig deep into the mind of any serial killer, murderer, rapist, suicide bomber, assailant, sniper, assassin, etc. and you’ll find a common denominator.

The Bible is full of warnings about anger. We humans don’t deal with this emotion very well in most cases, which is why God gives us so many warnings and tells us to deal with it quickly and get rid of it. Jesus knew how evil the emotion of anger was. That is why he warned against it so strongly. “Ye have heard that it was said of them of old time, Thou shalt not kill; and whosoever shall kill shall be in danger of the judgment:But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment:” Matthew 5:21-22

Evidently, Seung-Hui never dealt with his anger. Probably didn’t know how to. So he let it consume him, guide him, and then destroy not only himself, but unsuspecting bystanders around him.

A lot of people I know have a spirit of anger. It is a reality in too many lives. They bury it the majority of the time, but occasionally it reveals itself as an ugly vicious creature from the deep, striking mercilessly and then disappearing quickly, leaving behind destruction in its path.
Anger is a destroyer. Anger destroys relationships. Anger destroys marriages. Anger causes pain and sickness. Anger is a tool of Satan. Anger is death.

Do you think to yourself, “I could never do anything so horrible.” Do you have a spirit of anger? A lot of people won't admit to it. Search yourself. You know if you do or not. If you do, then don’t be too quick to say you could never do anything so horrible. Anger, left to itself, seethes, grows, and eventually becomes bigger than its owner. At that point, it becomes the master, the destroyer.

If you have anger in your life, deal with it now. Ask God to help you overcome it before it overcomes you.

He that is soon angry dealeth foolishly:” Proverbs 14:17

It is better to dwell in the wilderness, than with a contentious and an angry woman.” Proverbs 21:19

Make no friendship with an angry man; and with a furious man thou shalt not go:” Proverbs 22:24

An angry man stirreth up strife, and a furious man aboundeth in transgression.” Proverbs 29:22

Be not hasty in thy spirit to be angry: for anger resteth in the bosom of fools.” Ecclesiastes 7:9

Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath:” Ephesians 4:26

Cease from anger, and forsake wrath:” Psalm 37:8

A soft answer turneth away wrath: but grievous words stir up anger.” Proverbs 15:1

A wrathful man stirreth up strife: but he that is slow to anger appeaseth strife.” Proverbs 15:18

He that is slow to anger is better than the mighty; and he that ruleth his spirit than he that taketh a city.” Proverbs 16:32

Wrath is cruel, and anger is outrageous” Proverbs 27:4

Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice:” Ephesians 4:31

Another reason we need God:

The LORD is gracious, and full of compassion; slow to anger, and of great mercy.” Psalm 145:8

Neil over at 4simpsons has a great post today about "haters". Be sure to check it out here.

If you've never been called a hater, maybe you've been riding the fence too long or need some assertiveness classes. When you stand for something strongly and boldly enough, sooner or later, someone is going to call you a hater.

"Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution. But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived.But continue thou in the things which thou hast learned and hast been assured of, knowing of whom thou hast learned them." II Timothy 3:12-14

Lay it Down

Sometimes life can get so tough as to be unbearable. As a Christian, I know that God will never put on me more than I can handle and promises He will never leave me nor forsake me.

But one thing I have to remember – sometimes He allows trials into our lives in order to help us to grow spiritually, and to become more dependent on Him and less dependent on ourselves.

I’m a do-it-yourself kind of gal. Always have been. Control is not something I give up easily or willingly. And yet…God knows that is an area of my life I need to work on. So He’s been allowing things to pile up on me for a while…waiting…patiently waiting…knowing I’m struggling to keep things going on my own…until…finally…I realize I’m in over my head. I have to admit it. I can’t do it alone. I’m messing things up. I’m overwhelmed.

Finally, just before the collapse, I come to Him. And I lay my troubles before Him and ask Him to take over.

And He always does. Just as He promised – He hasn’t left me. He’s been right here.

I found a song recently that I plan on singing in a service soon with my friend Debra. It’s a beautiful song sung by Jaci Velasquez. I’m alto and Debra is soprano, so it’ll be a great song for us to do together. If you get a chance to listen to it, be sure to do so. Here are the words:

I’ve been lookin’ til my eyes are tired of lookin’
Listenin’ til my ears are numb from listenin’
Prayin’ til my knees are sore from kneelin’ on the bedroom floor
I know that You know that my heart is achin’
I’m running out of tears and my will is breakin’
I don’t think that I can carry the burden of it anymore
All of my hopes and my dreams and my best laid plans
Are slowly slippin’ through my folded hands

So I’m gonna lay it down
I’m gonna learn to trust You now
What else can I do?
Everything I am depends on You
And if the sun don’t come back up
I know Your love will be enough
I’m gonna let it be. I’m gonna let it go
I’m gonna lay it down.

I’ve been walkin’ through this world like I’m barely livin’
Buried in the doubt of this hole I’ve been digging
But You’re pullin’ me out
And I’m finally breathin’ in the open air
This room may be dark but I’m finally seein’
There’s a new ray of hope, and now I’m believin’
That the past is past, and the future’s beginning to look brighter now
Oh’ cause all of my hopes and my dreams and my best laid plans
Are safe and secure when I place them in Your hands

So I’m gonna lay it down
I’m gonna learn to trust You now
Ooh what more can I do
‘Cause everything I am depends on You
And if the sun don’t come back up
You know Your love will be enough
I’m gonna let it be. I’m gonna let it go
I’m gonna lay it down.
I’m gonna lay it down.
I’m gonna lay it down.

"Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus." Philippians 4:6-7

Cleaning up Restrooms in Atlanta

Human beings in general can do some pretty disgusting things, but as a general rule, even in the lost world, there are SOME moral lines that most people do not cross over. That is, of course, unless you add sexual perversion into the equation. Take this story, for instance. These past few months police in Atlanta, Georgia have been trying to clean up the International Airport’s bathrooms. No, they aren’t on toilet patrol. But they are having a real dirty problem.

The airport restrooms have become a hotspot for homosexual men to meet for “quickies”.

Craigslist, a website that offers immediate online personals ads, enables men to post quickly and get immediate response: “I’m stuck at the airport … and I’m looking for a good time…” or “….looking for discreet, quick action.”

So what do some psychologists say about this behavior? I quote from the article: “…airport indecency arrests usually involve people getting caught performing sexual acts…They’ve got to have the thrill and as they keep not getting caught or reported, the thrill gets less and less. It has to become more risky and daring to keep the thrill up.”

Isn’t that exactly what homosexuality is really about? Sex. Out of control, risky, daring, and thrill seeking. Not relationships. And don’t say, “but most homosexuals are in loving, monogamous relationships”, because the statistics prove otherwise.

Just a few years ago, the American Journal of Public Health surveyed sexually active homosexual men and found that they averaged 7 sex partners in a 6 month period, and 25% of those surveyed said they’d had 18 or more sex partners. Associated Press also reported on a separate study of homosexual men in Los Angelas County, and found the 50% of the men said they’d had sex with an average of 28 different partners over the preceding 6 months – and in PUBLIC PLACES.

Sounds like L.A. is moving to Atlanta.

Back to so called “monogamous homosexual relationships”.

In a survey of 7,862 homosexuals, the 2003-2004 Gay/Lesbian Consumer Online Census found that of those involved in a “current relationship,” only 15 percent described their current relationship as having lasted 12 years or longer.

A Canadian study of homosexual men who had been in committed relationships lasting longer than one year found that only 25 percent of those interviewed reported being monogamous.

In their classic 1978 study, published as Homosexualities: A Study of Diversity Among Men and Women, researchers Bell and Weinberg found that 43 percent of white male homosexuals had sex with 500 or more partners, with 28 percent having one thousand or more sex partners.

A study of Dutch homosexual men, published in the journal AIDS, revealed that "gays" coupled in long-term relationships still had an average of eight additional sex partners a year outside the "monogamous" union.
Go to any predominant Gay website (if you can stomach it) and peruse the publication. You’ll find quickly that the main objective is sex. It’s sort of like Playboy. You may say you subscribe to it for the articles. Nobody buys that.
Homosexuality is not normal. It’s a lifestyle. It’s a choice. It’s a sexual perversion. It’s not about relationships. It’s about sex. Out of control, risky, thrill seeking, self-gratifying sex. Wonder how many of these trysts in Atlanta involve homosexual men who are in what they'd call a "monogamous" relationship?

As a woman who is in a very loving, intimate, and dedicated marriage with a husband who is faithful, nurturing, and dedicated to our relationship, I take it as an insult every time I hear some gay activist screaming for marriage rights. It’s not that they want to get married. They want to have sex whenever, however, wherever and with whomever they want to. And they want everyone else to say it’s ok. THAT is what they ultimately seek. But the truth is, it's NOT ok, and no amount of indoctrination, aggression, or legalization will ever make it OK.
And as a side note. I remember a time when the worst thing a parent had to worry about their kids seeing was the neighborhood dogs following around some female dog in heat. Now look where we've come. I haven’t always been so outspoken and adamant about this subject, but after years of “in-your-face” political activism, gay pride parades, gay indoctrination in our school system and Hollywood trying to force this lifestyle on to us as normal and acceptable, I’ve had just about enough.

I didn’t get radical until THEY got radical.

Win or Go Home

Here is an excellent commentary on the present war in Iraq. It basically says what a lot of us have been saying: If you are going to wage war, go to win. If you don't have the stomach to do what it takes to win, then go home. Here are some excerpts, for those who don't want to read the whole thing:

Although the United States has sustained more than 3,000 battle deaths and has spent billions of dollars in Iraq, the nation's overall fight against Saddam Hussein and his successors has been marked by hesitation and half-steps.

That's how wars are lost.

The Allies won WWII against Nazi Germany and Imperial Japan with an all-out effort and resolute orders from the top. President Franklin Roosevelt called for "total war" on the Axis powers. He demanded "unconditional surrender."

Roosevelt's reference to "total war" was not mere rhetoric. Total war means everything belonging to the enemy is a potential target – their factories, their cities, even their civilians.

...when the US has fought "total" wars during the past 150 years, it has always won, including the Civil War and World War II.

As the US fights its one-handed campaign, the insurgents are waging their own version of "total war": It's not just US and British forces being targeted in Iraq, but mosques, churches, open-air markets, restaurants, shops, government buildings, street corners – anywhere people gather. The carnage is spreading.

What is immoral is war itself. Once full-scale war has broken out it can never be humanized or civilized...."

...and if one side attempted to do so [wage a humanized war] it would be most likely to be defeated."

Defeated indeed. The insurgents will win unless we resolve to fight a "total war".
Randy Taylor over at Northeast Intelligence Network gives a perfect description of Islam. It is like a vicious dog. If you stand your ground, chances are good that the dog will back down. If not and you are bitten, at least you saw it coming and were able to defend yourself in the best way you could. If you run, however, the dog becomes emboldened by your fear, chases you down and attacks you with even greater viciousness. If we retreat and hole up here in the States, the Islamic terrorists (viscious dogs) will bring their total war to our neighborhood. Then we'll all either have to lock and load or start praying toward Mecca five times a day.

The New World Religion is a Color

I couldn't resist grabbing this off the Canadian Free Press page today:

Wonder how you gain salvation? Through Carbon Offsets?

I'm laughing. But inside I'm saddened at the idiocy.

I know I'm taking this verse maybe somewhat out of context. And yet, it seems appropriate.

"Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye compass sea and land to make one proselyte, and when he is made, ye make him twofold more the child of hell than yourselves." Matthew 23:15

Guantanamo Detainees on Strike!

The Headline tells me that Guantanamo detainees are on a hunger strike.

I say, “so what?”

Are we supposed to take notice? Are we supposed to be concerned?
Their complaints, among other things are:

*They are confined in solid-wall cells most of the day and have little contact with other prisoners
*They have little exposure to sunlight
*They are allowed only a maximum of two hours a day of recreation in the fenced-in area inside the concrete courtyard
*They were once kept in general population areas for years and are now being held in isolation cells – without any explanation.

Their other complaint is that some are being "brutally and inhumanely force fed" to keep them from starving to death.
The majority of the hunger strikers end their strike as soon as the media leaves and long before the force feeding starts.

Before being in their new Camp 6, they were in metal –mesh cages. They complained then too.

Several notes:
*Millions of Americans are confined in similar conditions most of the day – they’re called cubicles.
*Millions of Americans have little exposure to sunlight.
*I don’t know anyone personally who has the luxury of two hours a day of recreation.

The only thing I would disagree with as far as the way they are being treated is the force feeding. Hey, if they’re stupid enough to starve themselves, why not let them? After all, it’s their bodies, right? And most of them don't fast for long - only until the media goes home and attention is focused elsewhere.

Let’s take a look at the activities of some of these prisoner.

Here’s an excerpt:

“Incident reports reviewed by The Associated Press indicate Military Police guards are routinely head-butted, spat upon and doused by "cocktails" of feces, urine, vomit and sperm collected in meal cups by the prisoners.
They've been repeatedly grabbed, punched or assaulted by prisoners who reach through the small "bean holes" used to deliver food and blankets through cell doors, the reports say. Serious assaults requiring medical attention, however, are rare, the reports indicate."

And here’s a quote from the conservative Landmark Legal Foundation president Mark Levin:
"Lawyers for the detainees have done a great job painting their clients as innocent victims of U.S. abuse when the fact is that these detainees, as a group, are barbaric and extremely dangerous," Landmark President Mark Levin said. "They are using their terrorist training on the battlefield to abuse our guards and manipulate our Congress and our court system."

Notice how upside down the world has become? Those that throw their own feces at others are the victims. Sometimes, I’m overwhelmed by the insanity of the world I live in. I’m thankful that I’m in it, but not of it.

Oh... I almost forgot to mention...most of these prisoners are followers of Islam - the religion of peace.

Are You in the Bible?

Don’t think me vain, but I just wanted to point out that I am mentioned in the Bible. That’s right. I’m in there. It’s an undeniable fact. It’s a glorious fact. It’s prophesied. And I can’t wait until it comes to pass.

And I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude, and as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of mighty thunderings, saying, Alleluia: for the Lord God omnipotent reigneth. Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready. And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints. And he saith unto me, Write, Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he saith unto me, These are the true sayings of God. Revelation 19:6-9

That’s right. I’m part of the multitude. I’m part of the bride. Glory! And if you are born again, then you are in there too. One day when we are there, saying those words, you’ll remember this and we’ll all rejoice together. Our names are written in the Lamb’s Book of Life.

(Can’t help it. I get excited thinking about that day!)

What If? - Easter Morning

This morning, as I celebrated the resurrection of my Saviour, I wondered what others who don't believe in the resurrection would celebrate today?

I got a card from someone saying that Easter is about Family, Friends, Good Times, and Love.

But that's not what Easter is about. It's only a part of it. Easter is about the fact of the resurrection. Easter is about a God Who has given every person on earth a chance to gain eternal life in heaven with Him - through His Son - not through our deeds.

Name one person you know that is without sin.

You can't.

Even people we consider "good people" have sin in their lives. And in the depths of our hearts lie unspoken evil thoughts and wishes that we manage to bury and never allow to come out - but they are still there, because we are flawed and imperfect. What makes us think we could do anything to compare with or to impress a holy and perfect God?

Pride keeps people from coming to Christ.
Judgementalism keeps people from coming to Christ.("I'm as good as anybody in that church - in fact, some of them are nothing but hypocrites".)

But the truth is, everybody in that church is a sinful human being who, in God's plan, deserves to go to hell. Even the preacher. The difference between them and the lost world is that they came to a point in their lives where they realized that, and saw that God had made a way for them to conquer their sin - through trust in His Son and what He did to pay their sin debt.

There is no place in Scripture that says I have to like everything God says, or that I have to like God's plan. It only says I have to be obedient to Him, and that if I want eternal life in heaven, I have to swallow my pride, admit I'm a sinner, and accept His free gift of salvation through faith. Once I've done that, He takes over my life through His Holy Spirit, and guides and teaches me through the rest of my life.
And gives me Joy.
And gives me Peace.

What if Christians are wrong? What have I lost? I have peace and joy, and assurance of heaven.

But what if you are wrong? Just what if?
What about your spouse?
Your children?
Your family?
Your friends?
What if? Is your pride worth the risk?
Are you so sure that Christians are wrong, and that Jesus was not Who He said He was?
Are you willing to risk your eternity on it?

"Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,To an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth not away, reserved in heaven for you, Who are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time." 1 Peter 1:3-5
