Biggest Story of 2007

(Washington, D.C.) The nearly single digit approval ratings of the Congress and the President’s own almost equally dismal approval ratings are THE major story this year. Never has the Congress of the United States been this disrespected and disregarded as the 110th Congress.

The people spoke in 2006, yet neither the GOP nor the Democrats appear to have listened. The people wanted our southern border secured. Congress and the President said OK and went their merry way spitting in the face of “We the People”. They did nothing. The people wanted change in Washington. What do the Democrat and Republican Parties serve us up? Senators Clinton, Edwards and Obama all three stale rotted rehashed radical liberals hell bent on driving the country to hell.

McCain, Romney, Thompson and Giuliani is the “best” the GOP can give us? All four are at best pseudo-Conservatives bent on grabbing power and advancing global businesses agendas no matter the cost to workers in jobs or giving China tax breaks and advantages galore. All pander to the social, fiscal and Christian conservatives and will like our “beloved” President Bush do what “We the People” do not want – sell us a bill of goods: the North American Union, the Law of the Sea Treaty, more Free (for who? not U.S.) Trade, and (loose) lip service border security, free spending what we do not have, and AMNESTY for illegal aliens!

As 2007 comes to an end it is good to reflect on where we are at individually and where we are as a society. Society is made up of individuals. We will talk about society and where it is at right now. In 2007, thanks much to unorganized boycott of many previous values voters in the 2006 elections due to Republican corruption and complacency, catapulted Speaker Nancy “I am the most Powerful Woman in America, he he” Pelosi and Harry “You said you would never ever see any Democrat leader worse than Senator Daschle, well here I am” Reid a swing to the left.

During 2007 evil forces have worked feverishly making advances in infiltrating key positions of influence for bad in our society. For the past five decades the forces of good stood aside and let the judicial and academic elite separate God from the schools and the state. The forces of good stood by and said nothing when the pornographers moved from the corner adult bookshops to set up shop in Hollywood and on the Internet. We go to movies, whose violent, vulgar and gratuitous sexual content would embarrass WWII soldiers, let alone our mothers and grandmothers. The forces of good stood by and did nothing when the black robbed tyrannical judges gave us abortion on demand, giving the woman the right to kill her baby. The forces of good stood by when the black (fitting) robed judges said sodomy was now no longer illegal as it had been for nearly 2000 years.

In 2007 the corrupt Congress led by the likes of Senators Edward Kennedy, Charles Schumer and Barbara Boxer tied up the President’s court appointments, put roadblock after roadblock to hogtie the President’s efforts on the war on terror, tried to ram unnecessary and heinous Hate Thought/Crimes legislation and wanted to give special rights to homosexuals creating a new and special class protecting and promoting perverse behavior through the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA).

For these reasons named above I nominate the pitiful but wholly justified abysmal Congressional and Presidential approval ratings as this year’s “top” story. We have truly hit a new low in non-responsiveness to “We the People”. Let us hope and pray that things will change for the better in 2008.

Puns Intended International

Friend of AGC..., T.D., sent us an email of a somewhat lighter nature on this eve of a New Year. We need something light after all those heavy top news stories of the year we may have been hearing or reading about today. There are many references to this list circulating around cyberspace. Enjoy if you have not already seen them.

“THE ABILITY TO MAKE AND UNDERSTAND PUNS IS THE HIGHEST LEVEL OF LANGUAGE DEVELOPMENT. Here are the ten-first place winners in the International Pun Contest:

1. A vulture boards an airplane, carrying two dead raccoons. The stewardess looks at him and says, 'I'm sorry, sir, only one carrion allowed per passenger.'

2. Two fish swim into a concrete wall. The one turns to the other and says 'Dam!'

3. Two Eskimos sitting in a kayak were chilly, so they lit a fire in the craft. Unsurprisingly it sank, proving once again that you can't have your kayak and heat it too.

4. Two hydrogen atoms meet. One says 'I've lost my electron.' The other says, 'Are you sure?' The first replies 'Yes, I'm positive.'
[Conversation heard outside Iranian nuclear weapon development facility?]

5. Did you hear about the Buddhist who refused Novocain during a root canal? His goal: transcend dental medication. [New age lunacy.}

6. A group of chess enthusiasts checked into a hotel and were standing in the lobby discussing their recent tournament victories. After about an hour, the manager came out of the office and asked them to disperse. 'But why?’ they asked, as they moved off. 'Because,' he said,' I can't stand chess-nuts boasting in an open foyer.'

7. A woman has twins and gives them up for adoption. One of them goes to a family in Egypt and is named 'Ahmal.' The other goes to a family in Spain; they name him 'Juan.' Years later, Juan sends a picture of himself to his birth mother. Upon receiving the picture, she tells her husband that she wishes she also had a picture of Ahmal. Her husband responds, 'They're twins! If you've seen Juan, you've seen Ahmal.'

8. A group of friars were behind on their belfry payments, so they opened up a small florist shop to raise funds. Since everyone liked to buy flowers from the men of God, a rival florist across town thought the competition was unfair. He asked the good fathers to close down, but they would not. He went back and begged the friars to close. They ignored him. So, the rival florist hired Hugh MacTaggart, the roughest and most vicious thug in town to 'persuade' them to close. Hugh beat up the friars and trashed their store, saying he'd be back if they didn't close up shop. Terrified, they did so, thereby proving that only Hugh can prevent florist friars.

9. Mahatma Gandhi, as you know, walked barefoot most of the time, which produced an impressive set of calluses on his feet. He also ate very little, which made him rather frail and, with his odd diet, he suffered from bad breath. This made him (Oh, man, this is so bad, it's good) a super calloused fragile mystic hexed by halitosis.

10. And finally, there was the person who sent ten different puns to friends, with the hope that at least one of the puns would make them laugh. No pun in ten did.

I have been guilty of using puns. Maybe having to read and write these was intended to be my punishment, ya' think?

Shining God’s Light on the Koran

After a two week absence we continue the Shining God’s Light on the Koran series. Today's article is part of an on-going series contrasting the Judeo-Christian Bible with the Koran on a variety of topics. Previous articles include: "Was Abraham a Jew or a Christian?", "Idolatry 101, 102, 103, Oneness, Unbelievers, God's Character, The Resurrection, The Proclamation, The Judgment, and The Creation of Man.

The Creation of Woman

Both the Koran and the Bible have much to say about what happened to mankind at and after their creation.

The Koran and the Holy Bible both agree that the woman was created after the man.

The Koran states: “You people? Have fear of your Lord, who created you from a single soul. From that soul He created its spouse, and through them He bestrewed the earth with countless men and women (1).” As far as I can tell: this is a true statement.

Further the Koran states, “He created for your spouses from among yourselves, that you might live in peace with them, and planted love and kindness in your hearts (2).

The Holy Bible is much more exact and detailed in its explanation and description of the creation of woman: “The Lord God said, ‘It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him a help meet for him.’ Out of the ground the Lord God formed every beast of the field and every fowl of the air; and brought them unto Adam to see what he would call them: and whatever Adam called every living creature that was its name. In naming all the animals there was not found a help meet for Adam (3).

“The Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam and he slept: and He took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh. The rib, which the Lord God had taken from man, made He a woman and brought her unto the man. Adam said, ‘This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.’ Therefore shall a man leave his father and mother and shall cleave unto his wife: and they two shall be one flesh. They were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed (4).”

The Apostle Paul in the New Testament portion of the Holy Bible pointed out, “the man was not created for the woman; but the woman for the man (5). “Adam was formed first and then Eve (6).”

Take note that God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone.” God made animals from the ground. With them all around man; Adam was still very much alone. An animal cannot fill the role of help meet. In His wisdom and design, God did not create another man for Adam. Another man could not fill the role of help meet. It is said that a dog is man’s best friend. Perhaps, we should think that God created woman to be man’s best friend.

There are people who want to change their sex. Notice Adam was created with precisely the gender God intended him to have. Likewise, Eve was created precisely with the gender that God wanted for her to have. God never designed gender to be optional as some today would have society believe. Adam and Eve had no choice in the matter. Likewise, we have no choice in determining our sex and cannot change it. Gender is determined by our genes and that cannot be changed. No amount of cosmetic surgery or of rhetoric can change our basic nature. The fact that people seek to change or identify with another gender than the one with which they were born is the result of the influence of a person’s upbringing and/or social or environmental influences. One’s behavior can always be changed despite what the psycho-babblists might contend. A person can enhance their physical and mental capacity, however they can never change the fact that they were born male or female.

We should be content with how God made us. We are each unique and special in His sight. We cannot outdo the Master Designer. All that feeble man can do is denigrate, tarnish and blemish God’s greatest creation. He is there to help us accept ourselves as He made us. He has made each of us for a purpose. He has a unique plan for each of our lives. His purpose and plan does not and cannot include a homosexual, transsexual or bisexual or any other so-called alternative lifestyle.

The place to begin in finding God’s purpose for you life is to repent of your sin and invite Jesus into your life. You can pray, “Lord Jesus Christ, forgive me of my sin and come into my heart.

Secular Humanism - Excluding God from Schools & Society

Monkey & Man on Secular Humanism's Planet of the Apes

The website, All About Philosophy, has an excellent definition for Secular Humanism. It says, “Secular Humanism is an attempt to function as a civilized society with the exclusion of God and His moral principles. During the last several decades, Humanists have been very successful in propagating their beliefs. Their primary approach is to target the youth through the public school system.” How true this statement is. Just read the article “California: It’s Time to Abandon the Public Schools" below for how great a headway this evil philosophy has encroached in American education.

Here are two quotes from people who are “proud” Secular Humanists, who do not hide their aims and work and write shameless to advance this ungodly, anti-Christian, anti-American base belief system.

"Education is thus a most powerful ally of humanism, and every American school is a school of humanism. What can a theistic Sunday school's meeting for an hour once a week and teaching only a fraction of the children do to stem the tide of the five-day program of humanistic teaching?"

- Charles F. Potter, "Humanism: A New Religion," 1930

"The battle for humankind's future must be waged and won in the public school classroom by teachers who correctly perceive their role as the proselytizers of a new faith: A religion of humanity -- utilizing a classroom instead of a pulpit to carry humanist values into wherever they teach. The classroom must and will become an arena of conflict between the old and the new -- the rotting corpse of Christianity, together with its adjacent evils and misery, and the new faith of humanism."

- John J. Dunphy, in his essay, The Humanist (1983)

Mr. Dunphy's statement strikes me as "intolerant" bigoted and hateful toward Christ, Christians and Christianity. Doesn't it strike you that way? It is high time that Christians in California and everywhere in the United States make a stand, by rising up and saying enough, and act to begin to turn back the tide of this insidious and hideous evil, this fatally false religion residing and even thriving in our public schools today - Secular Humanism.

Separation of ACLU and State

A Glenn McCoy Cartoon from 12/26/07

What a fantastic dipiction of one dispicable organization. They would hastle Tiny Tim on Christmas Day to make a point. What a loathsome operation. See the story below on what the allies of the ACLU have accomplished in California . . .

California: It's time to abandon the public schools


January 2, 2008 will be another day that will live in infamy. It is the day when every true Christian and every decent, principled, values-driven and right-minded parent should strongly consider pulling their children out of the schools. It is the day that the line should be drawn telling the secular humanist academic and political elite that they have taken their plan to destroy our culture to a new low. Foreign enemies have not had success in destroying America from outside. The ACLU and other forces of evil, who have been working feverishly to negate the Christian influence are having a degree of success in destroying our cultural foundations, values and principles.

Why sound the alarm? What is going on in California that is so bad? What is wrong? Two new California laws (SB 777 and AB 394) take effect the first of the New Year. That is the day that a profoundly amoral and confused congress and a very liberal Republican and unenlightened Governor of the New Sodom and the new Gomorrah have prescribed and acquiesced for beginning the sexual indoctrination of public school students K-12.

On that day the two new laws “will require all public school instruction and activities to positively portray transsexuality, bisexuality, and homosexuality to children as young as kindergarten. These terrible California laws are at the top of a long list of reasons why parents need to remove their children from government-controlled schools.” The quotation just cited is from the website of the Campaign for Children and Families (CCF). In other words, the public schools are expanding their efforts and becoming even more evil than the soviet styled reprogramming centers. Instead of communist propaganda being fed to the students, it now takes the form of depraved sexual education. This education teaches values which are anathema to Christians and those families who hold Judeo-Christian values. Traditional American values and principles are Christian moral standards based on Judeo-Christian value system, on which our nation was built. This base depravity will destroy society, which was the education bureaucrats aim all along. In a fallen America’s place apparently is some type of global utopia run by the “all-wise” elite.


SB 777 effectively requires all school instruction and every school activity to include positive PROMOTION of HOMOSEXUALITY, BISEXUALITY, and TRANSEXUALITY. AB 304 will push these alternative sexual lifestyles (actually DEATHstyles) through school “anti-harassment” education for students, parents, and teachers. There is no opt-out for parents, schools, or school districts for either of these new laws affecting every public school in California. These two new laws affect all six million of California’s students.

Furthermore, SB 77 will affect all “instruction” including textbooks, a teacher’s instruction, guest speakers, instructional materials, handouts, videos. It will also affect every school-sponsored “activity” including sex education, drama, music, school assemblies, sports teams, homecoming games, school proms, school clubs, etc.

Click here to watch a video clip of how actual sex indoctrination is carried out in Massachusetts elementary schools.


Unfortunately, beginning next month the California schools are well beyond repair. Why can I confidently assert this? Look at what the CCF website states, “This new sexual indoctrination comes on the heels of other government school problems:

>>> Openly homosexual and transsexual teachers for children as young as kindergarten

>>> Pro-homosexuality "days of silence" and "diversity days"

>>> Pro-homosexuality-bisexual-transsexual "Gay-Straight Alliance" (GSA) clubs that are already in 1 out of 3 public high schools in California

And then there are all the other disturbing practices affecting children in government-controlled schools:

>>> Evolution training promoting unbelief in God

>>> Distribution of condoms and birth control pills without parental consent

>>> "Confidential" abortion referrals and outside counseling without parental consent

>>> Widespread rejection of religious values [MORALITY]

>>> No effective discipline

>>> Negative peer pressure

>>> Less safety and less academic success, on average, than private or home schools”


The results of the government schools are already terribly tragic and fatally flawed. the new requirements which are meant to further poison the minds of the students with lies about the normality and naturalness of these perverse deathstyles is beyond the pale. It calls for drastic action. One representative of a traditional and values-oriented educational group is calling for a minimum of 600,000 students to leave the California public schools system and enter private schools or begin to be home schooled. It appears that private or home-based are the only options that remain, they are a must for persons who wish their children to have any decent education, not to mention a proper biblically-based education.

Recent studies have shown that even before this new degradation of our education system was in place upwards of 80-90% of Christian students reject the Church and much of their faith as a result of the toxic exposure to our secular humanistic hedonistic non-educational public school.

It will certainly take sacrifice. But our children are worth it. Our Forefathers sacrificed their wealth and their very lives so that they could be free from the tyranny of the state. The parents of California need to do no less and we need to support them because left unchecked, the perverse infection starting on the West Coast normally will spread like wildfire across America.

What’s so wrong with Porn?

Everything is wrong with porn - from its exploitation of the men, women, boys and girls, who are the objects of the content of the shameful material, to its destructive affect on the mind, soul and spirit of the end viewer. It also affects the user’s family and other interpersonal relationships. Pornography is only of temporal benefit to its producers and purveyors. Pornography is a billion dollar business at the expense of societal welfare.


The “American” Civil “Liberties” Union (ACLU), activist judges and other so-called “protectors” of “free speech” and “liberty” are actually promoting people’s possible enslavement to an addictive, unhealthy and an abnormal behavior. There is absolutely nothing redeeming in viewing or reading pornographic materials. It is a colossal waste of time and treasure.

But some would argue that viewing illicit or indecent materials (as measured by God’s standards, non man's) is a personal choice and is something anyone, including children, should be able to do in a “free” society. To that I say we must have standards in a civilized society. Despite what the secular-humanists espouse, man is no mere animal given only the selfish satisfaction of his needs. No, man is the highest form of God’s creation; we are made in His image and likeness. That is what distinguishes us from a sheep or a frog.

In terms of immorality, making and partaking in pornography ranks with the atrocity of abortion, child abuse, adultery and the perversity of homosexual behavior. Pornography is the antithesis of morality. It is a violation of the basic laws of nature and of nature’s God. God’s plan for sex is that it be fulfilled only in a traditional one-man, one-woman relationship. Therefore sex outside of this relationship is wrong, no matter if the behavior involves adulterous, promiscuous or self-gratification relationships or activities.

The only real solution to STDs, teenage pregnancy, addiction to pornography is sexual abstinence until marriage. The opposite is taught in our government schools. The secular humanistic, hedonistic worldview mocks at this solution and cries condoms and more money for medications to overcome the affects of HIV/AIDS or other sexually transmitted diseases. Ever since the secular humanist religion replaced the true God in our educational institutions we have strayed further away from these truths, including clear teaching of moral absolutes. Our sex and violence oriented media and entertainment industries feeds the wanton desires of a growing pagan society, which includes infecting and assimilating of a growing number of worldly Christians.


Furthermore, pornography is a prelude to some criminal behavior including rape, child abuse, sexual assault, pedophilia etc. Adult bookstores and movies with provocative sexual content should be labeled Hazardous to your mental, social and spiritual well being. It is toxic, more harmful to humans than cigarettes or any pollution. It is after all, mind pollution, plain and simple!


Avoid pornography, don't buy-into its allure, don't purchase it, don't view it . . . easily said, but more difficult to do. But as the Bible, the Word of God, says, "With God all things are possible.' . . .

The only real solution is for each individual, starting with those who are true followers of Jesus Christ, is to repent of our personal wickedness and to embrace and follow God’s plan for our lives. He tells believers in the Bible that we are to be holy as He is holy. What? Yes, that is God’s standard. Wow, that is definitely not the world’s standard, just the opposite.

God made us with a free will. We are not robots. We are free to make choices in many areas of our lives. We ultimately choose how we live and what behaviors we do. We can choose to obey God or we can choose to ignore Him and live for only for ourselves. We have that degree of freedom. Why then would be choose to give that control to our lower natures and expose ourselves to becoming addicted to sex? Why would we allow our passions to control us and not principles? Why? Man is in a fallen condition. Man has a depraved nature.

There is, however, ultimate hope in Jesus Christ, who is God’s provision, to overcome our lower nature and to enable us to live in a higher realm here on earth in preparing us for our more permanent destiny. It all starts with giving our lives over to God, through the means of His Son, Jesus Christ. A few days ago we celebrated Christmas, which commemorates the birth of the Savior. In a few months we will be celebrating Easter, when we remember the Resurrection of the Savior. In between the Birth and Resurrection, Jesus, who was fully God, became man, suffered and died for our sins on a cruel Cross. It is only through Jesus that anyone can have the hope of an eternal relationship and fellowship with God.

The Bible talks about two paths or ultimate outcomes of our lives will lead. Despite what the man-is-god philosophers say, earth is not our ultimate destination. We live and we die, yes, but our souls live on forever. We are not reincarnated, but we do exist beyond the grave. There are two possible fates that await us.

One destination is everlasting separation from God. This is the ultimate state of existence for anyone who rejects the provision of Jesus to restore them to God. Hell is real and hell is in essence an existence totally devoid of God. As the Bible so well states this is the broad way which leads to destruction. The other is a narrow way, which leads to life.

The other destination or ultimate state of existence is in the presence of God forever. Contrary to the teachings and beliefs of Mormons or Muslims or any other religion for that matter, we do not earn our way to heaven. Entry or access to heaven only comes to us through a personal relationship with the Savior, Jesus Christ.


At some point in our lives here on earth we must deal with what to do with Jesus. We either reject or we accept Him. We must have accepted Him as our personal mediator or reconciler to make us in right relationship with God. Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth and the life. No one comes to (God) the Father except through Me.”

The key is the message of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We must realize that God loves each of us uniquely and unequivocally. But, at the same time we must acknowledge that we are sinners, wicked individuals, hopelessly lost and apart from God. We must accept by faith that Jesus died for our sins, evil, indiscretions and wrongs. Through a free act of our will (choice) we must ask Jesus to come into our lives and to live, to guide and to help us to live up to the standards that God sets forth in the Bible, His Word to a fallen race of man. How do we do this? We can do this through a simple heartfelt conversation with God.

Abortion, Terrorism, and Ron Paul

Last week I wrote about why I dropped Tom Tancredo from consideration for my endorsement for President. The reason I gave was that he said that the U.S. should threaten that, if there was to be another terrorist attack, we would bomb Mecca and Medina. (Tancredo has since dropped out of the race for the Republican nomination.)

In response, Greg wrote (in the principle policy group) …

I must disagree with you regarding Representative Tom Tancredo. The right to life is without doubt the greatest issue facing the United States. Only Representatives Duncan Hunter and Tom Tancredo and Gov. Mike Huckabee are solidly pro-life.

I disagree with this. Ron Paul is also solidly pro-life. All four of these candidates have different opinions about what is the right way to go about banning abortion (by constitutional amendment, overturn Roe v Wade…etc.). It is wrong not to include Ron Paul just because he says the matter should be left up to the states. Huckaberry Fin also believes this.
Ron Paul introduced this legislation:

H.R.1094 - Sanctity of Life Act of 2007
The text of the bill reads:

Sanctity of Life Act of 2007 - Declares that: (1) human life shall be deemed to exist from conception, without regard to race, sex, age, health, defect, or condition of dependency; and (2) the term “person” shall include all such human life. Recognizes more…that each state has authority to protect the lives of unborn children residing in the jurisdiction of that state. Amends the federal judicial code to remove Supreme Court and district court jurisdiction to review cases arising out of any statute, ordinance, rule, regulation, or practice, or any act interpreting such a measure, on the grounds that such measure: (1) protects the rights of human persons between conception and birth; or (2) prohibits, limits, or regulates the performance of abortions or the provision of public funds, facilities, personnel, or other assistance for abortions. Makes this Act applicable to any case pending on the date of enactment.

Greg also said…

I think that Americans need to come to grips with the fact that Islam is a threat to America. It is as Bill Wilson (in his 12/3/07 DailyJot) wrote, "…The theocracy of Islam is not some romantic ideal of another culture, but rather a brutal, fascist death-oriented, fear-based government of control masquerading as a religion. Exodus 23:24 says of other religions and gods, "You shall not bow down to their gods, nor serve them, nor do after their works: but you shall utterly overthrow them, and quite break down their images." Good advice then as it is now." He was referring to Saudi Arabia and the Sudan, but what he says applies to any mosque in the US where the Imam preaches an anti-American, anti-Christian message of hate. We need a candidate who understands these issues and will confront them [sic] with an unwavering commitment. Of the major candidates I believe only Rep. Duncan Hunter and Tom Tancredo and to a lesser extent Gov. Mike Huckabee would do just that. These are the best candidates to deal with these challenges.

To him I say:

About Exodus 23:24, there are different ways one could interpret this passage that you (or Bill Wilson) quoted.

One could interpret this passage to say that the idol worshippers are those who bow down to actual physical idols made of wood, stone, or metal. This is the interpretation that I favor (it says "images"). Muslims do not bow down before physical idols like this. A Muslim would be more justified in using this interpretation against Catholics (because of their “statues” of Mary and other Saints) and Orthodox Christians (because of their “icons”) than we would be justified in using it against them. I think it is likely that God only meant for the literal obedience of this passage “you shall utterly overthrow them, and quite break down their images” to carried out by the nation of Israel of Old Testament times and only in the land of Canaan.

One could interpret this passage more broadly to include other types of idol worship. You could say that the Muslim idea of Allah is an idol because it supersedes the truth about who God really is. But this broader, “spiritualized” definition of idolatry should also include anything else one puts above the true God. Examples would include money, family, romantic relationships, food, work, cars, entertainment, and expensive clothing. If anyone who has violated the Law in this fashion should be put to death by civil government, then let ME be the first to face the executioner. I am guilty. I admit it.

To the general reader of this blog I say:

The penalty for putting anything above the true God actually is death. But this death sentence is not to be carried out by military force or governing authorities. It is not physical death, but a spiritual death (an unimaginably painful, eternal separation from God). I am talking about when one stands before the judgment seat of Christ. Will any one be able to be saved? If you have put anything above God in your life, then you are in the same boat as I am. But there is a way out. When I stand before God on that Great Day, the only thing I will have to stand on is the blood of Christ, shed on the cross so that I would not have to face the death sentence I deserve. In other words, Christ took the punishment himself so that I would not have to. The way to accept this great pardon is to turn away from worshipping these idols, accept Jesus as the true God, agree with Him in everything he says in His Word (the Bible), and be immersed in water for the remission of your sins.

Love’s Unending Legacy (2007) (TV)

Love’s Unending Legacy, a made-for-TV (Hallmark) movie, is the fifth movie in a series. Janette Oke is the author of the book series. The first six books of the series have been made into movies.

According to a description on Janette Oke’s website her Love Comes Softly series “follows the lives of one family through three generations - beginning with
a hated "marriage of convenience," through hardships common to life on the prairie in an earlier time, leading at last to an abiding love. These eight stories reflect the enduring hope of Christian love and faith despite adversity and hardship. More than 6.5 million copies of the books in this series have been sold.”

The titles of the first five books/movies are: Love Comes Softly (2003) (TV), Love’s Enduring Promise (2004)(TV), Love’s Long Journey (2005)(TV), Love’s Abiding Joy (2006) and Love’s Unending Legacy (2007) (TV). The sixth in the series, Love’s Unfolding Dream (2007) (TV), was recently presented on the Hallmark Channel.

Love's Unfolding Dream is the story of a recently widowed young woman, Missie, who realizes it is time to move on after the tragic death two years earlier of her husband. She travels back to her father's community, where she lived originally. She is sure that she will never find a relationship like the one she had with her now deceased husband Willie. While adjusting to being a single mother raising her young son and trying to establish a household of her own, she adopts Belinda, a troubled young teenager, who is one of the children brought to town on the "orphan train." She eventually falls in love with the town's young Sheriff who helps her deal with the challenges Belinda brings Missie.

I have purchased and watched the first five movies in the series and would recommend them as wholesome family entertainment. They remind one of the Little House on the Prairie TV Series.


I would rate the entire series of movies **** out of *****. The entire series of movies are solid, wholesome, uplifting stories about the challenges facing pioneers in the West in the late 19th century. It gives us a glimpse at the hardships and problems they faced.

The stories are good human interest dramas. A system of absolute morality, an assumption and recognition of God’s involvement in daily affairs of man plays a prominent role. Our growing godless, secularist, hedonistic 21st century society could learn much from the simple faith and principles portrayed in these films. I highly recommend any and all of the movies.

It is best to start with the first and move on through the entire series so you can follow the story more fully. Your children may even get interested in reading the series of books. It certainly would be much better than wasting time reading Philip Pullman’s empty and atheistic His Dark Materials trilogy, of which the miserable movie, Golden Compass, is the first in the wicked series.

If your local library or movie rental store does not have any of the Love Comes Softly series, they are worth the purchase price. Prices at Wal-Mart and other discount stores may bring you additional value.

It's Called Christmas with a Capital "C"

Aren’t you feed up with the whole "happy holidays" alternative to saying "Merry Christmas"? The music group Go Fish sings about what Christmas really commemorates. It is not the boast to the economy or the giving and receiving of gifts that is most important.

Click on the YouTube video above to hear the Go Fish group's sing and the listen to the narration of comedian Brad Stine on the subject of Christmas . . . Here are the lyrics of the Go Fish song:

It's Called Christmas with a Capital "C"

Well I went to a coffee shop
To get a cup of mocha
The lady at the counter said, "Happy Holidays"
I said, "Thanks lady I am pretty hap
"But there's only one
Holiday that makes me feel that way."
It's called Christmas
What more can I say?
It's about the birth of Christ
And you can't take that away
You can call it something else
But that's not what it will be
It's called Christmas

God's got a law
And we have pretty much destroyed it
We gonna get judged
There's a way to avoid it
But Jesus came down
To take the punishment from me
He did it for you too
So maybe you can see why


It's called Christmas
What more can I say?
It's about the birth of Christ
And you can't take that away
You can call it something else
But that's not what it will be
It's called Christmas with a capital "C"
. . .

Have a very Merry Christmas and

a Happy and Healthy New Year!

Democrats and the Second Amendment

What a perfect depiction of the major Democrat presidential candidates positions on American's Right to Bear Arms. Senator's Hillary Rodham-Clinton, Barack Hussein-Obama and John "ambulance-chaser" Edwards all agree on this important issue - Americans do NOT have the absolute right to bear arms. Control guns, not the criminals they seem to say. Additionally, Hussein-Obama and Rodham Clinton even oppose the death penalty. categorizes all three as Left Liberals. I classify them radical leftists, socialists, elitists and globalists.

Homosexuality is not a lifestyle . . .

Abhorrent Behavior is a Major Cause in Spreading AIDS.

Morality not Money is the Solution.

This week I heard someone on the radio make the following comment about homosexuality, which I found summarized well the entire homosexual agenda and movement here in America.

"Homosexuality (sodomy) is not a lifestyle. Homosexuality is a deathstyle."

Homosexuality is an unnatural, immoral and unhealthy deathstyle, which causes many otherwise physically healthy men to contract AIDS and to infect both their homosexual and any heterosexual sexual encounters they might have. Why do we permit the homosexual brothels, such as homosexual bathhouses? They are known public health hazards. We ban cigarettes and smoking, but permit a known behavior 1000 times worse than any carcinogen. Condoms, despite the lies of Planned Parenthood and others, do not guarantee anything but increasing one's chances of getting AIDS if that deathstyle is engaged.

The homosexual movement and abortion are two cogs in the culture of death, which radical leftists are hotly pursuing in America.

War on Christmas: The 2007 Grinch-o-Meter Awards, Part 2

An Addendum

Kristen Fyfe follows up with an update of her earlier article, which we included in today’s posting below, with three more “awards.” I want to focus on one in particular.

§ Planned (really it is preventing) Parenthood– the abortion provider – sent out email Christmas cards to its supporters titled “Choice on Earth.” The irony of an abortion provider sending out greetings on a day that celebrates the Birth of Christ is astounding. (Grinch-o-meter rating: 10-plus)

Comment: This despicable organization and other American holocaust providers and purveyors shamefully profit from killing of babies and we allow it to happen. This very fact tarnishes the joy of the celebration of the “birth of the Savior”. Would Jesus favor abortion? I know most definitely He does not!

War on Christmas: The 2007 Grinch-o-Meter Awards, Part 1

2007 Awards for Attempting to Destroy Christmas

I came across a wonderful article by Kristen Fyfe on She is a senior writer at the Culture and Media Institute, which is a division of the Media Research Center. The article summarizes some of the battles incurred this past year in the War on Christmas and Christianity in our beloved country. The “American” Civil “Liberties” Union (ACLU) has lead the charge in many a battle for quite a while in an attempt to destroy our traditional Judeo-Christian culture, Christmas seems to be a rallying point or point of emphasis for this wicked effort.

The Grinch-o-Meter is Culture and the Media’s (CMI) new tool for “measuring the Grinchiness of those seeking to secularize, diminish or tarnish the celebration of Christmas in America.” A rating of 10 is given to people who actively seek to destroy or harm the celebration of tradition Christmas. One example is ACLU lawsuits filed against government entities and others regarding the display of nativity scenes in public and other areas. On the other hand, a “0” is given to those who promote or defend Christmas.

Here is the CMI’s list (text in red is directly from Fyfe's article) of Grinch-o-Meter Ratings for 2007. I include a few of my own comments and links to recent articles I have done on some of these “winners”.

§ TOP Grinch-o-Meter Award: The 17 congressmen who
supported a resolution recognizing Islam and Ramadan but voted “no” or “present” (that is, there but wouldn’t vote) on a similar resolution introduced by Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) recognizing Christianity and Christmas. Lawmakers who voted “no” for Christianity and “yes” for Islam are: Reps. Gary Ackerman (D-NY), Yvette Clarke (D-NY), Diana DeGette (D-CO), Alcee Hastings (D-FL), Jim McDermott (D-WA), Bobby Scott (D-VA), Fortney Stark (D-CA) and Lynn Woolsey (D-CA). Those who voted “present” on Christianity and “yes” on Islam include: Reps. John Conyers (D-MI), Barney Frank (D-MA), Rush Holt (D-NJ), Donald Payne (D-NJ), Janice Schakowsky (D-IL), Allyson Schwartz (D-PA), Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL), Peter Welch (D-VT) and John Yarmuth (D-KY). [Grinch-o-Meter: 10-Plus]

Comment: This has to be the biggest affront and insult to America since the Supreme Court took God out of our schools. Imagine preferring the hate-filled bigoted “religion” over the faith of our Founding Fathers, Christianity! There was another resolution that honored some Indian (Asia) god as well.

§ Ft. Collins, Colorado – The city created a Holiday Display Task Force, which recommended banning red and green lights and using only white ones and only secular symbols. A local ACLU representative was on the task force. Fox’s Bill O’Reilly reported on November 27 that the task force’s recommendations were “rebuffed.” The Council voted 6-1 to keep their Christmas decorations. [Task Force gets a Grinch-o-Meter 10; the council gets a 2]

Comment: In my article about this incident I praised the bravery of the county Sheriff who stood up to this Task Force for its ridiculous recommendations.

§ Ridgeland Schools – The Oak Lawn, Illinois district was going to do away with Christmas parties. But parents raised a fuss, so the school board decided that rather than take Christmas parties off the agenda, they would include celebrations of Ramadan and other Muslim holidays. [Grinch-o-Meter initially registered a 10, but dialed back to a 5]

Comment: This happened in Senator Barack Hussein Obama’s state. It is not too far fetched to imagine that he would concur with the original school district’s decision.

§ Companies that operate government-assisted housing for senior citizens – In Plant City, Florida and Troy, Pennsylvania, residents were told they cannot decorate common areas in their buildings with religious symbols at Christmas. After being contacted by Liberty Counsel these companies reversed their decisions. [Grinch-o-Meter initially registered a 10, but dialed back to a 2]

Comment: I heard an interview with an elderly woman who was told she could not decorate her apartment for Christmas she fought the “law” and won.

§ Spokane, Washington – The Associated Press reported that the Spokane Public Schools sent home a calendar for elementary school students with “important dates” for December. Hanukkah, Human Rights Day, winter break, first day of winter, Kwanzaa and the Islamic holy day of Eid-al-Adha were on the list, but one rather significant holiday beginning with a “C” didn’t make the cut. A school spokesperson said, “In our efforts to be inclusive we missed the obvious.” The school corrected the omission in the online calendar. [Grinch-o-Meter registered 10 initially but dialed back to 2]

Comment: An “innocent” mistake? Yeah, right!

§ Barbara Walters – During the December 13 episode of ABC’s The View, Walters whined about the White House Christmas card because it quotes the Bible’s book of Nehemiah. “Don’t you think it’s a little interesting that the president of all the people is sending out a religious Christmas card?” she asked her co-hosts. [Grinch-o-Meter: 9]

Comment: In my recent article I called Barbara Walters a geriatric journalist apparently with little substantive stories on which to report.

§ New York City officials – gave the Christian Defense Coalition a Scrooge-like two-hour window to display a small nativity scene in midtown Manhattan. The display is part of “The Nativity Project,” a nationwide campaign to set up nativity scenes in well-traveled public areas. [Grinch-o-Meter: 9]

Comment: Only two hours to display the nativity scene during the Christmas season, what insanity, what bias when all forms of perversion are on 'tolerated" and display 24/7 in this most decadent city.

§ Seattle-Tacoma International Airport – The airport made major headlines last Christmas when it removed all of the Christmas trees on display throughout the airport after being threatened with a lawsuit if a menorah was not also included in the display. This year, the airport convened a “holiday decorations advisory committee” which determined that the airport would not use any decorations with religious connotations. The Seattle Post Intelligencer reports this year’s décor is a “grove of luminous birches up to 30 feet high and hung with crystals and mirrors to reflect colored, low-energy lights.” Above the trees will be a “spiraling flock of migrating birds cut out of foam.” Wind chimes will occasionally ring as well. [Grinch-o-Meter: 9]

Comment: Sea Tac Airport is where New Age crock replaces Christian and American tradition.

There are more award “winners” outlined in Kristen Fyfe’s article, but I want to highlight only two more, which are from my home state of Ohio:

§ Oberlin, Ohio artist Keith McGuckin – Last year it was gingerbread Nazis with Swastika-labeled candles. This year, McGuckin has created a murderous snow woman and a drug smuggling elf. His art is on display at the Oberlin Public Library and a local crafts store, according to WEWS in Cleveland. [Grinch-o-Meter: 7]

Comment: Oberlin College, founded by Rev. Charles Finney a dynamic and powerful 19th century evangelical leader, constantly amazes me with the depth it has fallen from its origin mission. It seems that they have changes side, Satan instead of God now directs the affairs of that once godly institution and its perversion affects its community in profound ways.

§ The Ohio Department of Natural Resources – Bureaucrats initially ordered all state parks to remove Nativity scenes because of one complaint. After being contacted by Liberty Counsel, a Christian legal defense organization, the ODNR changed its stance and decided to continue “prior holiday traditions.” [Grinch-o-Meter: 6]

Comment: Bureaucrats most likely influenced by the new radically liberal Governor Ted Strickland or his appointees. One of the first things this popular governor did was take abstinence funding out of the state budget and approve benefits for homosexual “partners” in the state government.

You can read more about additional award “winners” as well as Santa’s Helpers 2007 in Fyfe’s
article. Among the organizations who have stood for Christmas during 2007 include Focus on the Family, American Family Association, Concerned Women for American, Liberty Council and the Alliance Defense Fund. Outstanding media defenders of Christmas in the media include Bill O’Reilly and John Gibson at Fox News and conservative talk show host Mike Gallagher.

Kristen Fyfe closes her article with a poem, a
version of which I posted on AGC a month ago.

Flywheel (2003)

As with many non-Hollywood movie productions and movies with a strong Christian message, you are not likely to find this movie in your local movie rental store. I recently purchased the movie Flywheel online from the American Family Association. However, while Christmas shopping this past week I noticed that the movie is being carried in Wal-Mart stores. You can also get this movie online from
It is a movie with a strong Christian worldview. Flywheel tells the story of restoration of a 1950’s British Triumph classic car and the transformation of a used car salesman. It is a very low budget film, actually created by a church in the South. The film depicts the depths and emptiness and meaningless that a human life can sink as well as the heights it can reach and miracles it can experience. Just like the mechanic who restores the non-functioning classic Triumph vehicle, God hears and answers Jay Austin’s, the crooked used car salesman, cry for help and makes something good out of an utterly downtrodden and dysfunctional life.
The following review by Bret Fetzer on is an excellent summary of the movie, “Flywheel is the first film from the creators of Facing the Giants . . . Used car salesman Jay Austin . . . swindles his customers and teaches his assistant salesmen to do the same--but despite the profits, something gnaws at him. When he realizes that his own son doesn't respect him, Austin has a conversion and accepts God into his life. This would be the end of most spiritual stories, but Flywheel finds a warm comedy in the obstacles on the path of righteousness; Austin discovers that being right with God means grappling every day with what it means to be honest. Though the filmmaking is raw (the editing is often clumsy and the cinematography is flat), the story is well-paced, has a gently ironic sense of humor, and Kendrick's central performance is compelling. Kendrick is just as persuasive as a man struggling to emerge from a joyless life as he is when he's rediscovered his faith but finds it constantly tested. Though Flywheel is forthright about its Christian inspiration, the story is about actually living a moral life, not about abstract spiritual truths. The result is a movie that looks towards heaven, but has its feet on the earth.”


The movie rates a ****1/2 out of *****. I certainly agree with the reviewer on who wrote that the makers of Flywheel “created a film with $20k that's better than most of the multi-million dollar productions out of Hollywood today. You'll laugh, cry, and more importantly, you'll feel the presence of God in this
film . . .” The movie is thought-provoking, inspiring and entertaining. The movie would make a nice last minute Christmas gift . . .
I recommend this film to every Christian family or anyone else who wants to expose themselves or their children to a clear and practical demonstration of traditional virtues and values which were once commonplace in this nation and can be again . . .

List of Retailers Who Censor or Recognize Christmas

Before you do your last minute shopping for Christmas check the updated "Naughty or Nice" List put out by Liberty Council.

Liberty Counsel launched its fifth annual Friend or Foe Christmas Campaign, with a "Naughty & Nice" list of retailers who censor Christmas from their advertising and displays and those who recognize Christmas.

The above cartoon is based on the 2006 "Naughty or Nice" List, so please check Liberty Council's 2007 "Naughty or Nice" List.

Rejecting the PC-ification of Christmas

I listened to a recent radio interview with a politically incorrect Sheriff in Colorado.

There is at least one government official in the tsunami of anti-Christian, anti-American bias out there swelling across America that is not afraid to tell it like it is. That man’s name is Jim Alderden. He is the Sheriff of Larimer County Colorado. He is a man who stood up and pointed out the foolishness and sheer stupidity of political correction taken to an absurd extreme. He most likely will not be invited to the political correctness crowd’s next man of the year awards, if there is even such an event in this era of feminist extremism and the “rights” of even the transgendered, people who don’t even know what gender they are on any given day.

The following article is taken from Sheriff Alderden’s commentary on his section of the Larimer County website. He wrote this commentary about six weeks ago in mid-November in response to a 15 member Task Force established in response to a Jewish person’s request to display a menorah in the city square three years ago. Apparently this Task Force was assigned to develop some recommendations to the Fort Collins City Council.

Thankfully the pressure from Fox’s Bill O’Reilly, who pointed out the absolute absurdity of the Task Force’s recommendations (and I would add, a needless waste of energy and resources if any government funds were used), along with the outcry of the community, the Task Force’s recommendation were eventually rejected by the City Council. Read the following
article to get a first-hand appreciation for the preposterous ends to which political correctness will lead, if its ugly manifestations are left unchecked. The Task Force recommendations are that horrid outworking.

Ft. Collins Boulderized: the Task Force that Denied Christmas

By Sheriff Jim Alderden

“Ft. Collins is becoming more like the imbecilic borough of Boulder than many would like to admit; where social agendas substitute for common sense.

“Last week, Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly righteously ridiculed the recommendations of Ft. Collins’ Holiday Display Task Force on The O’ Reilly Factor. For the uninformed, the Task Force recommended that

· only “white lights and secular symbols not traditionally associated with any particular holiday” be permitted.

· . . . “removing red ribbons from wreaths and removing stars and ornaments from trees.”

· Acceptable symbols of winter include “snowflakes, snowmen, snowballs, ice skates, skis, penguins, polar bears, white lights, etc.” (Penguins? This is dangerous territory. What about those of us who were traumatized by Danny DeVito’s performance as Oswald Cobblepot in Batman Returns? Skis? What about the poor who can’t afford to go skiing? How elitist and insensitive!)

The Task Force managed to avoid any reference to Santa Claus, AKA St. Nick, but one would assume the jolly old gentleman would be banned due to the association of saints with religion.

"While the secular progressives have tried to take Christ out of Christmas, supported and bolstered by the ACLU which is waging its own Jihad against Christianity, the majority of Americans, including those living in Larimer County and Ft. Collins, recognize and value our Christian heritage. Valuing our heritage while being tolerant of other religions!

“Let us not forget that the separation of Church and State is a fairly modern creation of the Supreme Court, not the views of our Founding Fathers and certainly not expressly found in our Constitution. Our Founding Fathers fought in part for the right of citizens to freely express their religious beliefs. Express – not suppress. It seems that government at all levels is more interested in suppressing Christian beliefs. The recommendations of the Holiday Display Task Force are clearly designed to suppress the thanksgiving and joyfulness of Christians for the birth of Jesus Christ.

“In the interest of political correctness and cultural diversity, the Ft. Collins’ Holiday Display Task Force caved to the left and denied the faith and heritage of the majority. It’s in vogue.

“I would love to visit Israel some day. In a Jewish country, I would expect to see symbols such as the Star of David and Menorahs in the public square. In an Islamic country, one would expect to see symbols representing the faith of their nation. Why in America, a country founded on Judaic Christian values, would we exclude symbols of our faith from the public square? Why not display a Nativity scene?

“The fact that we are even engaged in a discourse of whether Christmas trees and Christian symbols of faith should be allowed on city property is absurd. When one is sliding down a slippery slope, there comes a time to dig in your heels, grab the nearest branch, and hold on for dear life. Our country, and sadly our own community, has reached that point where people of faith and good conscience can no longer stand silently while a belligerent minority usurps our heritage and dictates how and where we express our religious freedoms. It is time to make a statement--to grab that branch, in this case a pine bough.

”Most of the members of the Larimer County Sheriff’s Office are Christians and celebrate Christmas. We pray for the continued safety of our brothers and sisters in blue, and recognize that the laws we are sworn to uphold have their very foundation in the laws laid down by God through Moses. Our criminal codes are based on Judaic Christian doctrine. To deny that by restricting symbols of Christian faith on public property is beyond the pale . . .”

The Sheriff concludes his article defying and highlighting the stupidity of the Task Force’s recommendation by inviting the public to decorate the Christmas tree he will place outside his office. He suggests that the decorations include “red ribbons, stars, angels and multi-colored lights” etc.

Conservatives Can Laugh, Too 13

NewsBusters is a conservative news and comedy website. Here is one of their bits from their current episode. See right panel of this blog and click on the video to watch this 2-3 minute comedy video

"While campaigning for his wife (President) Bill Clinton refers to Hillary (Rodham-)Clinton as an “Agent of Change”. He means nothing smaller than $10s and $20s.”

- - - NewsBusted, Episode 128

One thing you can count on is that if any Democrat wins the Presidential election next Fall we will have our taxes raised and we will have less change. That is what President Clinton must be referring to when he says his wife is a change agent. She would be an agent of ALL our change loose and otherwise.

Ron Paul, not Tancredo

by Matt Miller

I had been on the fence between two candidates for President, but I have now firmly made up my mind, at least as far as the primaries are concerned. I had already eliminated the other contenders based on their compromising positions on abortion, social liberalism, or a combination of other factors.

Tom Tancredo spoke to League of the South while there was reportedly a portrait of Robert E. Lee and Confederate flags in the background. He has taken campaign contributions from FAIR which is alleged to be a racist organization. He is said to have had ties with Margaret Sanger and helped found some chapters of Planned Parenthood. He is said to be so much against illegal immigration, that he would be willing support funding of abortions and/or sterilizations internationally to reduce the number of potential candidates for immigration.

OK, just because Tancredo spoke before the LoTS, doesn’t mean that he agrees with their positions. I couldn’t find anything on the FAIR website that indicates that they are racist, so even if they are, how would Tancredo know? FAIR supports Tancredo’s favorite cause and the amount he received was probably less than 1% of all campaign contributions he received (for Congress and President). Even if Tancredo had connections with Margaret Sanger, that would have been 47 years ago. The rest is probably just rumor and speculation, and Tancredo’s voting record would seem to suggest that it is.

I cannot, however, just dismiss a recent Tancredo statement. He said that the United States should threaten that, if there was another terrorist attack, then we would bomb Mecca and Medina. This is an outrageous, unjust, unchristian threat. Thousands of people, some who aren’t even Muslims, would be killed. These would be people who would have had nothing to do with any of the terrorist attacks. Islam may be a religion with a propensity for violence, and certainly there is no salvation in it, but this does not justify killing them just because they are Muslims. In fact, it is all the more reason not to. Having done nothing to violate any U.S. law, but being lost without Christ, most, if not all of these people would die and burn in hell for all eternity. We would show the Muslims that our philosophy is no different than the terrorists. Being pro-life means more than just being in favor of criminalizing abortion.

Peter says, “Who, when he was reviled, reviled not again; when he suffered, he threatened not; but committed himself to him that judgeth righteously. Not rendering evil for evil, or railing for railing: but contrariwise blessing; knowing that ye are thereunto called, that ye should inherit a blessing. But and if ye suffer for righteousness’ sake, happy are ye: and be not afraid of their terror, neither be troubled.” (I Peter 2:23, 3:9, 3:14) This is not to say we can’t bring murderers to justice, but “it is better, if the will of God be so, that ye suffer for well doing, than for evil doing.” (I Peter 3:17)

Therefore, after much research, prayer, fasting, and discussion, I hereby endorse the candidacy of Ron Paul for the Republican nomination for President of the United States. I don’t, however, agree with everything that Ron Paul says. I call upon all Bible-believing Christians to pray:

1. For Ron Paul, that he would change his mind about saying that abortion is too “difficult” of an issue to be decided nationally (preferring all abortions be banned by the states instead). It is not a “difficult” issue, but it is rather clear from the Constitution that they should be protected by law.

2. For Ron Paul, that if he believes in the general theory of evolution as it is taught in the state universities and public schools, he would then have a change of mind. This idea trivializes sin and damages a person’s ability to put sin in a proper perspective.

3. For Tom Tancredo, that he would repent of his vengeful disregard for the lives of Muslims. Pray that he would see that the best thing is to reach out to them in love, while at the same time executing justice against ONLY the ones who are guilty of violating U.S. laws.

4. For other candidates who have such an utter disregard for lives of the unborn, that they would repent and discontinue forbidding that they would be protected under the law.

5. For those in the general population of the U.S. who have been deceived by these various falsehoods.

The PC Holiday Carolers

This is a Jeff Larson Cartoon from the Christian Post 12/11/07


There is no more hateful, anti-Christian and anti-American organization in the United States of America than the "American" Civil "Liberties" (diss)Union (ACLU), unless maybe it is the People for the "American Way" or maybe the "Americans" United for the Separation of Church and State . . .

Christmas: Jesus Christ is Born

Go Tell It On The Mountain

Go tell it on the mountain,
Over the hills and everywhere,
Go tell it on the mountain,
That Jesus Christ is born.

. . . .
