“The Lost Tomb of Jesus,” a Slam, a Sham & a Shame

Those Danish cartoons poking fun at the prophet Mohammed irritated the Islamic world greatly causing even the death of 100s of “infidels” as the protectors of Mohammed’s reputation demonstrated their ire. Now we have an even greater insult to an even greater prophet, yes, to Almighty God Himself, in the Lord, Jesus Christ.

It is a crockumentary being shown during the most sacred Easter season, we have a further insult to the Creator and Savior of the world and to all His followers, who bear His name. This supposed “documentary” according to a recent email I received from the American Family Association “claims that the tombs of Jesus, Mary, Mary Magdalene and a supposed son of Jesus —Judah— have been found, thus making the Bible and two thousand years of history a lie.”

The AFA email continues, “According to the Discovery Channel's documentary "The Lost Tomb of Jesus" airing Sunday, March 4, the bones of Jesus-- buried with His family -- have been found. In addition, the documentary says that Mary Magdalene and Jesus might have had a son named Judah."

This is indeed part of an ongoing effort on the part of the enemies of Jesus Christ and His followers to discredit, to insult, to marginalize to ridicule all those that honor the true God. It amounts to the worst sort of blasphemy.

This new insult is part of an incessant systematic effort on the part of the Secular Humanist Leftist to destroy all vestiges of God, Jesus Christ and Christian influence in America today. The Da Vinci Code, the Gospel of Judas, Jesus Christ, Superstar and all the same attempt to discredit the one, true Gospel of Jesus. Our Secular Humanist friends cannot accept the exclusivity and truth of this message because it wars against their own creed and the basic pillars of their “faith” in god-man.

According to
National Clergy Council president Rob Schenck in a article observes that over the years, “Hollywood has attacked and mocked the Christian faith, and he suspects the makers of The Lost Tomb of Jesus may have similar intentions. However, the clergy leader notes, he tends to agree with critics who claim this new documentary makes a mockery of the archaeological profession."

Kerby Anderson in an
article on the Probe Ministries website writes, “The foundational claim (of the Discovery documentary) is that they have discovered the family tomb of Jesus Christ. Is this really the tomb of Jesus or his family? There are many good reasons to believe this tomb has no relationship at all to Jesus and his family. Many are asking what to think about these claims. Therefore, I put together a quick two-page summary of some of the criticisms and concerns that surfaced in the first few hours after the announcement. Before we look at those criticisms, let’s first review the history of this tomb.

Anderson continues, “We have known about this tomb since it was discovered in 1980. Back then, Israeli construction workers were digging the foundation for a new building in a Jerusalem suburb. Their digging revealed a cave with ten limestone ossuaries. Archeologists removed the limestone caskets for examination.

Anderson adds, “When they were able to decipher the names on the ten ossuaries, they found: Jesua, son of Joseph, Mary, Mary, Mathew, Jofa and Judah, son of Jesua. At the time, one of Israel’s most prominent archeologists (Professor Amos Kloner) didn’t associate the crypt with Jesus. He rightly argued that the father of Jesus was a humble carpenter who couldn’t afford a luxury crypt for his family. Moreover, the names on the crypt were common Jewish names.”

There is no “Lost Tomb” of Jesus Christ. But there is an “Empty Tomb”! This empty tomb is the essence of Christianity. It validates the Gospel message of Jesus who said of Himself, I am the way, the truth, and the life; no one comes to (God) the Father except through Me.” This simple message has stood the test of time and will withstand this latest attack. However, it is time for Christians to “fight” back not using the Islamo-terrorist tactics like burning and beheading, but as righteously outraged and insulted followers of the God of the universe by praying for our enemies and by boycotting and by writing to the broadcasters. After all they blaspheme the one true God and we should not remain silent.


Send your email in protest to this insulting so-called “documentary” to The Discovery Channel. Ask them to do the right thing and not air this most egregious insult to the world's only true God-honoring faith. John S. Hendricks, Chairman Discovery Channel.

Worlds Apart

Who is guilty of revising American history? It is the liberal elite or Secular-Humanists, who control and run education and academia. These liberals claim that our country was formed as a God-less and strictly secular a-moral nation, and that the Constitution grants freedom of religion yet restricts the government in preferring or in establishing religion. It is not those who contend that our Founding Fathers were believers in God and Jesus Christ and never intended that our nation be created or formed b strictly a-theistic, without God. These are not revising history but are accurately reporting history.

What would George Washington have done if he weren't a true Christian? He would have done everything differently had he not been the devout, practicing Christian that he was. Had not George Washington been a true believer in God, as I posited in an earlier article some of the consequences that would:

· He would have never endured the miserable Valley Forge experience. He more than likely would have cut and run without the courage and strength of his faith in his God.

· Since he presided over the formation of the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution, those documents may never have been created. There would have never been a Bill of Rights, because Washington and the vast majority of the Founding Fathers recognized that our rights ultimately come from God, not from the state.

· There would have never been a United States of America and the great blessing of God lavished upon her due to the great faith that made George Washington the great leader that he became.

America was founded by true Christian believers who knew and practiced their faith. Many of the signors of the Declaration, in fact, were seminary graduates. These seminaries did not produce Reverends such as Al Sharpton or Barry Lynn or Katharine Jefferts Schori, but TRUE believers. There is a biblical principle that you shall know the tree by its fruit. Someone who supports and approves abortion and homosexuality and evolution indicate a belief system other than a biblically based, God honoring one.

Our laws and yes our Constitution and even the very structure of government were all based on a biblical model. Our laws were based on God's truth, morality and they recognized God as the absolute source of rights, not the state.

The Constitution guarantees freedom of religion including freedom to express one's faith, it does not guarantee freedom FROM religion as the leftist liberal elite (ACLU, People for the American Way and Americans for the Separation of Church and State) seem to want to interpret it.

The government never intended to restrict Christianity as a faith, but only to insure no single DENOMINATION gain the government's sanction as the state church, as the Church of England had done in Great Britain. You cannot equate Christianity with religion. Christianity transcends mere religion and is a way of life. Christianity is the way of life that our founders envisioned for our nation, not Presbyterianism or Methodism, Anglicanism or even Secular Humanism (Atheism), which is the religion that you want to see become the only sanctioned Sha’ria-like “law” of the land. No, it was Christianity that made America what it is, a Christian, God-honoring nation.

I understand this is an essential pillar in the Secular-Humanist religion/philosophy construct, because without this key component Secular Humanism is exposed for what it is - the inferior, wanton and wanting worldview. Secular humanism MUST marginalize, yes even remove God and true biblical Christianity completely out of the picture in order to thrive and complete its reshaping of America in the image of man rather than in the vision of the founders image of a God ordained and blessed nation.

Therefore a Christian view of America is directly opposite a Secular-Humanistic view of America. The two are worlds apart, literally!

A Force of Will

A force of will, that in a nutshell is the story of William Wilberforce as portrayed in the new movie, Amazing Grace (2007), which premiered across the United States this past Friday. It is an extraordinary portrayal of one man’s God-driven gut-wrenching passion to right the injustice of a popular and profitable slave trade.

It includes the intertwined story of the Reverend John Newton, who was himself a reformed and repentant slave trader. John Newton was also William Wilberforce’s Pastor as Wilberforce was growing up. By the way, John Newton is also the writer of the great hymn which also serves as the title of the movie.

This true story is inspiring to any politically activist or Conservative Christian politician, who wonders if one man can make a difference. The odds were greatly stacked against Wilberforce, who was a member of the British Parliament, and who stood nearly alone at first in his anti-slave trade cause. It challenges us never to give up, to keep pursuing and persisting.

At one point in the story after Wilberforce had recently become a born-again, true Christian believer he questioned what his role in politics was, if any. We wondered if God wanted him to be a preacher. Those around him, especially several abolitionists, provided him with a very convincing argument that he would be actually doing the Lord’s work in pursuing the cause to eliminate the slave trade in all of the British Empire.

Wilberforce gave a great deal of his youth, his vigor, his health to the cause. After a brief illness and accompanied discouragement he was encouraged and challenged by his future wife to continue in the battle. The relationship reinvigorated Wilberforce to continue in this mighty cause. Over a twenty-year period he went from being virtually alone in his battle in Parliament, 300 to one odds, to eventual victory with only 26 opposing votes leading to the passage of the act that stopped the slave trade across all of the Empire.

While watching the movie, especially the scenes depicting the boisterous debate in the Parliament, I could not help but think of present day injustices virtually being ignored by mainstream tenured politicos and their not so silent accomplices in the media.

Today’s anti-slave trade or the abolitionist movement is the pro-life or anti-abortion movement. Pro-life forces have been waging for 30 plus years battle to end this equally insidious heinous barbaric practice with seemingly little success. The forces of evil in the abortion axis of evil include the Supreme Court, the Democrat Party, the liberal elite throughout this country and powerful abortion and other left wing lobby and leftist organizations such as NARAL and Planned Parenthood Federation of America. They also include their socialist comrades in cahoots, the NEA, the ACLU, NOW, radical feminists, George Soros and other well heeled financiers of a life-destroying, society-destroying and values-destroying mindset.

Secondarily to the wickedness of abortion is the equally wrong proliferation of the sex slave trade involving woman and children, which is becoming more and more prevalent in America as well as the rest of the world. Both of these evils need champions both in and out of office to be a force, like Wilberforce was as he fought injustice and evil of his day.

Furthermore, while Wilberforce was battling the foes of abolution in England, George Washington and other founding Fathers wre establishing a new country, which would also embrace the anti-slave movement, but would have to fight a costly Civil War over it. The things that most of our Founders and Wilberforce had in common was a faith in God and in the Lord Jesus Christ. However, this is not acknowledged at all, if ever in today's modern "enlightened" age. This movie is a much needed reminder of a time when men where not afraid to hold and embrace their principles at all costs. They did not fear being politically incorrect, as so many do today.

These are the take-aways from the movie for me, the great lessonw that I took from this must-see movie. It was well worth the 70 miles I drove to see it! Look for it at a movie theater near you. If you like a fast moving picture, excellent acting, true heroism, true human struggle, and an uplifting and inspiring true historical account you would love this film. I highly recommend it to young and old and in-between. It brings history to life and to light.

My Movie Rating: * * * * *


Chuck Norris asks us to take action by signing an anti-slavery petition. He challenges each of us to be a modern day Wilberforce or John Newton. See his article on WorldNetDaily. Sign the petition here: a worldwide petition.

Catching Mitt’s Error

When Mitt Romney declared his candidacy for the Presidency he said he believed every person to be a “child of God”. This is a declaration of ignorance showing he does not know God’s Word and is probably not a true Christian. Mormonism, itself, is a non-Christian belief system. If he were a child of God and if he knew God’s Word he would know that what he believes is false.

Jesus said of the Scribes and Pharisees, who were the religious leaders of His day, and who claimed Abraham as their father, that they were of their father – the devil. Pretty harsh words, the truth, aye?

Jesus gives the parable of a man who sowed good seed in his field. The enemy came along and sows bad seed. The good seed produced wheat which symbolizes the children of God in this world. The bad seed produced tares that looked like wheat, but actually is not. The tares are the children of Satan. A person is either a child of God or a child of Satan.

God said, “I will put hatred between the woman’s seed and the seed of the serpent. The seed of Eve are God’s children and the seed of the serpent are Satan’s children. We can see this worked out in the Biblical account of Cain and Able. Cain, it is written was of the wicked one. Even though both Abel and Cain were biologically the sons of Eve and Adam, Cain was still the child of Satan, while Abel was a child of God. Who’s your daddy, reader?

If you realize you are not a child of God and would like to be one, you can become one. Jesus, who is the Lord of Hosts, came to earth, and was born of a virgin. He lived a sinless life though He was tempted in all things, just as you and I are. He was declared guilty of being King of the Jews. A distinction Rome had not conferred on Him. This, He was crucified as a criminal. On the cross He willingly took into His own body all the sins of the world (all of mankind) that would ever be committed. God the Father forsook His only begotten Son and at that precise moment in time darkness covered the earth. In this way He literally tasted death for every individual. When the sin was gone He declared, “It is finished.” Then He said, “Father, into Your hands I commit My spirit, and He then voluntarily gave up His spirit and experienced death physically. Three days later He arose from the dead.

God, in this way, purchased the right to forgive you of your sins. You need to acknowledge or agree with God that you are a sinner. Then you need to ask for forgiveness and consciously and sincerely personally invite Jesus into your heart, the very innermost center of your being. Jesus promised to come into them who ask for Him. Those who do not receive Jesus into their heart remain in their sins and the wrath of God abides or continues on them. A sample prayer is, “Lord Jesus Christ, forgive me of my evil and come into my heart. Why not pray this prayer today?

What will it be, America, Water or Coke?

Our AGC friend, TD, forwards yet another interesting email, which forms the basis of this article. Thanks, TD. For the possible source of this information click here.


#1 75% OF Americans are chronically dehydrated. (Likely applies to half of the world population.)

#2 In 37% of Americans, the thirst mechanism is so weak that it is mistaken or hunger.

#3 Even MILD dehydration will slow down one's metabolism as much as 3%.

#4 One glass of water will shut down midnight hunger pangs for almost 100% of the dieters studied (in a University of Washington study).

#5 Lack of water is the #1 trigger of daytime fatigue.

#6 Preliminary research indicates that 8 to 10 glasses of water a day could significantly ease back and joint pain for up to 80% of sufferers.

#7 A mere 2% drop in body water can trigger fuzzy short-term memory , trouble with basic math, and difficulty focusing on the computer screen or on a printed page.

#8 Drinking 5 glasses of water daily decreases the risk of colon cancer by 45%, plus it can slash the risk of breast cancer by 79%, and one is 50% less likely to develop bladder cancer.


#1 In many states the highway patrol carries two gallons of Coke in the trunk to remove blood from the highway after a car accident.

#2 You can put a T-bone steak in a bowl of Coke and it will be gone in two days.

#3 To clean a toilet: Pour a can of Coca-Cola into the toilet bowl and let the "real thing" sit for one hour, then flush clean. The citric acid in Coke removes stains from vitreous china.To remove rust spots from chrome car bumpers: Rub the bumper with a rumpled-up piece of aluminum foil dipped in Coca-Cola.

#4 To clean corrosion from car battery terminals: Pour a can of Coca-Cola over the terminals to bubble away the corrosion.

#5 To loosen a rusted bolt: Applying a cloth soaked in Coca-Cola to the rusted bolt for several minutes.

#6 To bake a moist ham: Empty a can of Coca-Cola into the baking pan, wrap the ham in aluminum foil, and bake. Thirty minutes before the ham is finished, remove the foil, allowing the drippings to mix with the Coke for a sumptuous brown gravy.

#7 To remove grease from clothes: Empty a can of Coke into a load of greasy clothes, add detergent, and run through a regular cycle. The Coca-Cola will help loosen grease stains.

#8 Coke will also clean road haze from your windshield.


#1 The active ingredient in Coke is phosphoric acid. Its pH is 2.8. It will dissolve a nail in about four days. Phosphoric acid also leaches calcium from bones and is a major contributor to the rising increase in osteoporosis.

#2 To carry Coca-Cola syrup (the concentrate) the commercial truck must use the "Hazardous Material" place cards reserved for highly corrosive materials.

#3 The distributors of Coke have been using it to clean the engines of their trucks for about 20 years!


Now isn’t this comparison between Water and Coke also illustrative of the purity of God’s natural blessing and man’s thinking he can outdo or improve on God’s purpose and plan? How many billions of dollars have we spent on soft drinks to satisfy our thirst, when water would have been healthier and usually less costly? How much resulting health care costs related to diabetes, obesity, tooth decay etc. has resulted in making bad choices just in what we drink in comparison to the cost of these products?

(God) the Father certainly knows best, but He has given us free will to make behavioral choices. We choose what we allow our bodies to consume. Coke symbolizes all the crud we allow to pollute and destroy our bodies and our souls. It is not happenstance that Jesus Christ referred to Himself as the "Living Water". To be a true Christian allows us to partake in the benefits of a relationship with Jeus and thus quench our spritual thirst as well.

Another lesson of this comparison is that by accepting God’s provision with thanksgiving and appreciating the simple things in life we can preserve our health. Perhaps then we can even share from the savings we gain from limiting the purchase of unnatural, unhealthy products we consume, and the resulting saving in medical costs, with those less fortunate.

Now let me ask the question again, "Would YOU like a glass of water or Coke?" Make A Good Choice and choose the life enhancing properties of God's provisions . . .

Wilberforce, Grace Amazes

Ioan Gruffudd stars as abolitionist William Wilberforce,
seen here on the deck of a slave ship. Bristol Bay Productions
Isn’t it ironic, that on the eve of Oscar weekend, where every form of perversion and the most lewd and vile and the most outrageous lies (i.e., Charlatan and possible preposterous Nobel Peace Prize winning Algore’s “A Convenient Lie” crockumentary) will be accorded all kinds of honors, that a truly great movie, with a truthful and really powerful and pertinent message premiers?

According to Kenneth Turan, LA Times movie reviewer, which I heard on NPR of all places) this morning on the Morning Edition show
commented, “Amazing Grace is a story of idealism and speaking truth to power. It understands there is something deeply dramatic about a man who stands up for what is right and makes a difference in this life. The man in question is William Wilberforce, who for decades was Parliament’s prime mover in the battle to abolish the save trade in Britain. . . . it is risky in this cynical age, to make a traditional biopic, to construct a narrative that focuses on the good men do . . . Amazing Grace introduces us to Wilberforce at a crucial midpoint in his career. It’s a moment in 1797, a decade after he became an abolitionist, when physically exhausted and in despair, he feels like all his work has been for naught. . . Though looking in history as the work of great men may be out of favor [ i.e. George Washington, for one, see gregjaye’s recent article ], Amazing Grace embraces this point of view and makes it its own.” [My emphasis added]

Such a movie is rare today. Now we have nonsense like a Michael Moore comedy or an Al Gore "horror" flix. I am looking forward to seeing the Amazing Grace movie. I will not be watching Ellen DeGeneres hosted decadence glorifying Oscar show this year, however.

In an internet article, “Amazing Grace Movie: Lessons for Today’s Politicians” by Rusty Wright, he begins by asking two pertinent questions, “Can God and politics mix? Is blending them a recipe for suppressing freedoms, grabbing votes, or promoting the public good?”

Wright continues, “God-talk has become popular among US politicians. Leaders contemplating faith-in-action would do well to look back two centuries to William Wilberforce, the famous British parliamentarian who led a grueling but bipartisan twenty-year struggle to outlaw the trading of slaves. The film,
Amazing Grace (US premier February 23) tells his inspiring story.

“. . . Wilberforce and the Abolitionists repeatedly introduced legislation. Apathy, hostility and parliamentary chicanery dragged out the battle. Twice West Indian sea captains threatened Wilberforce’s life. His health faltered. [My emphasis added – doesn’t this sound like the current crop of Democrat and “Moderate” GOP representatives in Congress today in America? ]

“Buoyed by friends and faith, Wilberforce persisted. He believed God viewed all humans as equal, citing Acts 17:26, “[God] has made from one blood every nation of men.” . . Finally, in 1807, twenty years after beginning, Wilberforce prevailed. Parliament erupted in cheering as the slave-trade-abolition law passed.”

Where are the Wiberforces in the United States Congress today? Senator Sam Brownbeck of Kansas, though not perfect seems to champion the right to life issue and seems closest to a Wilberforce that we have today. He seems to persist despite the ridicule and the attempt by the press to marginalize and discount or flat out ignore him.

Someone like Sen. Brownbeck or Rep. Tancredo seem to be principled men who respect life and the truly important issues facing America, as did Wilberforce. To me, the two primary issues facing America today are abortion, which in my estimation is the modern day slave trade, only it is worse, and the seeming glorification and indoctrination of homosexuality in education, academia, the activist judiciary, the main stream media and in the entertainment industry.

What I am looking for are representatives, including Presidential candidates that will stand up against the powers that want to enslave and have America succumb to complete acceptance of the dual evils of abortion and homosexuality. By no means are these the only issues. The other issues are of lesser import by comparison. These include the war on terror, immigration, the deficit, trade imbalance; excessive government spending and bureaucracy all need to be addressed in a principled manner by principled men or women as well.

Free Ramos and Compean

Jesus said, “lawlessness will cause the hearts of most to grow cold” (Matthew 24:12, NAS). We can see this in our country today in our courts. So many people have become convinced that there is nothing wrong with abortion because it has been “legalized”. But in this post I want to talk about the latest example of lawlessness that we can see in our courts.

Asvaldo Aldrete-Davila, a marijuana smuggler, was caught by border patrol agents, and then was shot as he tried to escape back to Mexico. After receiving 11-12 year sentences, the border patrol agents (Ignacio Ramos and Jose Compean) ended up in jail and are being attacked in their prison cells by Latino gang members. Aldrete-Davila, who is not a citizen of the United States and entered illegally with 740 pounds of pot, is SUING the agents for violating his civil rights. Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, a REPUBLICAN congressman, has called for IMPEACHMENT of the President for not pardoning the border patrol agents.

I agree that the agents should not have tried to cover up what had happened, but an 11 or 12 year sentence is ridiculous. They should have received only a reprimand, not jail time. If they were to be imprisoned, they should have been kept away from Latino gang members.

It’s ridiculous that local law enforcement agencies are not allowed to deport illegal aliens. One Ohio sheriff (Richard K. Jones) has attempted to bill the Federal Bureau of Immigration and Customs Enforcement for having to house illegals in his (Butler) county jail because he is not allowed to deport them. "Why should Butler County taxpayers have to pay for jail costs associated with people we don't believe should ever have been in this country, let alone this state, or county, to begin with?" asks Sheriff Jones. His persistence is beginning to pay off locally. We need more sheriffs like him and congressmen like Dana Rohrabacher and Tom Tancredo to help put an end to this lawlessness!

On Washington’s 275th Birthday

Tomorrow (February 22nd) is President George Washington’s Birthday. I wrote an article earlier this week about President Washington on AGC. This is a follow-up to that article.

“George Washington’s Sacred Fire” is a new book written by Dr. Peter Lillback. According to one
commentary, “George Washington, Founding Father of our nation, has been the subject of great confusion and debate about his faith, leading to the misconception that he was a deist. The purpose of this book is to prove definitively that George Washington was indeed a devout, practicing Christian. George Washington, Founding Father of our nation, has been the subject of great confusion and debate about his faith, leading to the misconception that he was a deist.”

I quoted the above comments on an internet forum recently and got the following reaction in return, “Would (Washington) have done anything differently if he was Jewish (or) Moslem (or) Atheist?" This struck me as an excellent, thought-provoking question.


George Washington would have done everything differently had he not been the devout, practicing Christian that he was. Had not George Washington been a true believer in God here would be some of the consequences:

· He would have never endured the miserable Valley Forge experience. He more than likely would have cut and run without the courage and strength of his faith in his God.

· Since he presided over the formation of the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution, those documents may never have been created. There would have never been a Bill of Rights, because Washington and the vast majority of the Founding Fathers recognized that our rights ultimately come from God, not from the state.

· There would have never been a United States of America and the great blessing of God lavished upon her due to the great faith that made George Washington the great leader that he became.

In retrospect, God mightily used President George Washington to bring about this more perfect union. George Washington was God's chosen leader.


A couple of quotes from a recent
article are apropos to this discussion. The first is a quote is from the notebook German Lutheran Rev. Henry Muhlenberg: "I heard a fine example today, namely that His Excellency General Washington rode among his army yesterday and admonished each and every one to fear God, to put away wickedness that has set in and become so general, and to practice Christian virtues. From all appearances General Washington does not belong to the so-called world of society, for he respects God's Word, believes in the atonement through Christ, and bears himself in humility and gentleness. Therefore, the Lord God has also singularly, yea, marvelously preserved him from harm in the midst of countless perils, and has hitherto graciously held him in his hand as a chosen vessel." [Emphasis added]

Another quote from the same excellent article nicely captures the sense of Washington’s faith, “Washington believed that the fires of reason and the fiery passions of a society without the presence of the sacred, refining fire of faith would always burn out of control. A fire lit by human passions alone would be a blaze without limits, without direction, and leave devastation and carnage behind. Washington's "sacred fire of liberty" was sacred, precisely because of his ardent Christian faith. As he said at his first inaugural address (April 30, 1789): "The preservation of the sacred fire of liberty and the destiny of the republican model of government are justly considered as deeply, perhaps as finally, staked on the experiment entrusted to the hands of the American people." Or as the French political thinker and historian Alexis de Tocqueville wrote after visiting the United States in the 1830s: "America is great because she is good. If America ceases to be good, America will cease to be great."


Could this be a part of the explanation of America’s failings today? If President George Washinton were to return today he would see all the technological advances , but he would see the absence of God, lack of faith and lack of morality. We need not only to return Presdient Washington to his deserved place of recognition in our history, but we need to emmulate him. He is a real Amercian Hero.

Happy Birthday, Mr. President!

Fanatical Minority Trumps Peaceful Majority

T D sent us this piece, which apparently has been circulating on the internet. It contains some important insights. The actual source of this article about fanatical Islamism below is anonymous. The emphasis on the words in the article is mine. - - - gregjaye


I used to know a man whose family was German aristocracy prior to World War Two. They owned a number of large industries and estates. I asked him how many German people were true Nazis, and the answer he gave has stuck with me and guided my attitude toward fanaticism ever since.

"Very few people were true Nazis "he said," but many enjoyed the return of German pride, and many more were too busy to care. I was one of those who just thought the Nazis were a bunch of fools. So, the majority just sat back and let it all happen. Then, before we knew it, they owned us, and we had lost control, and the end of the world had come. My family lost everything I ended up in a concentration camp and the Allies destroyed my factories."

We are told again and again by "experts" and "talking heads" that Islam is the religion of peace, and that the vast majority of Muslims just want to live in peace. Although this unqualified assertion may be true, it is entirely irrelevant. It is meaningless fluff, meant to make us feel better, and meant to somehow diminish the specter of fanatics rampaging across the globe in the name of Islam. The fact is that the fanatics rule Islam at this moment in history.

It is the fanatics who march. It is the fanatics who wage any one of 50 shooting wars worldwide. It is the fanatics who systematically slaughter Christian or tribal groups throughout Africa and are gradually taking over the entire continent in an Islamic wave. It is the fanatics who bomb, behead, murder, or honor kill. It is the fanatics who take over mosque after mosque. It is the fanatics who zealously spread the stoning and hanging of rape victims and homosexuals. The hard quantifiable fact is that the "peaceful majority" is the "silent majority" and it is cowed and extraneous.

Communist Russia comprised Russians who just wanted to live in peace, yet the Russian Communists were responsible for the murder of about 20 million people. The peaceful majority were irrelevant. China's huge population was peaceful as well, but Chinese Communists managed to kill a staggering 70 million people.

The average Japanese individual prior to World War 2 was not a warmongering sadist. Yet, Japan murdered and slaughtered its way across South East Asia in an orgy of killing that included the systematic murder of 12 million Chinese civilians; most killed by sword, shovel, and bayonet. And, who can forget Rwanda, which collapsed into butchery. Could it not be said that the majority of Rwandans were "peace loving"?

History lessons are often incredibly simple and blunt, yet for all our powers of reason we often miss the most basic and uncomplicated of points:

Peace-loving Muslims have been made irrelevant by their silence.

Peace-loving Muslims will become our enemy if they don't speak up, because like my friend from Germany, they will awake one day and find that the fanatics own them, and the end of their world will have begun.
Peace-loving Germans, Japanese, Chinese, Russians, Rwandans, Serbs Afghans, Iraqis, Palestinians, Somalis, Nigerians, Algerians, and many others have died because the peaceful majority did not speak up until it was too late.

As for us who watch it all unfold; we must pay attention to the only group that counts; the fanatics who threaten our way of life.

Lastly, I wish to add: At the risk of offending someone, I sincerely think that anyone who rejects this as just another political rant, or doubts the seriousness of this issue or just deletes it without sending it on, is part of the problem. Let’s quit laughing at and forwarding the jokes and cartoons which denigrate and ridicule our leaders in this war against terror. They are trying to protect the interests and well being of the US and it's citizens. Best we support them.


Likewise, as insidious as fanatical Islam is as an external threat and maybe even as an internal threat with our open loosely secured borders, is extreme Liberalism. Extreme or fanatical liberalism is a philosophy of a Godless secular humanistic thinking which now controls (i.e. rules) the Democrat Party leadership as well as much of education, the media and entertainment. It is very dangerous internal threat to all things American. It is eating away at the principles and values that have made America the great and God-blessed nation that we are. We must fight Islam and Liberalism. These are our two major battlefronts today.

The fanatical liberals not only approve of the slaughter of babies (abortion) but they also kill ideas and ideals and values (traditional marriage) as well. We must be on-guard for both sets of maniacal fanatics who want to bring down the American way of life.

Presidential Prayer

T.D. forwarded this special prayer request from the Jerusalem Prayer Team. We ask all true Christians to pray today and this week.

This is a prayer request for a man in need of prayer.

Please, take a moment and pray for this man. He is in a situation that few people find themselves. He is criticized at every turn, and few people have thanked him for the good things he has done.

Few people know the extent of his situation. We need to pray that God gives him the guidance he needs to do his job effectively. I have attached a photo of this man. Look at it. Most of you will recognize him. Please pray for him.

Feel free to pass this on to anyone else who will pray for this man. He hasn't asked me to send this request, but I am sure that he will appreciate all your prayers. If you were facing what he is facing, you'd want people praying for you!


No matter what party you support, this man is our President right now and needs our help in prayers.

This country belongs to all of us.


Today is Presidents' Day. Would you let President Bush know you are praying for him?


Disrespecting George W

This article is not about the incessant attacks being waged on President George W. Bush. The liberals everywhere love to hate and beat up on President Bush. Some disenchanted Bush voters are joining this Bush-Bash-Bandwagon as well. No, this article is about the on-going desire to minimize the importance of one of the key founders of this nation, George Washington.

February 22nd is President Washington’s actual birthday. This is the day we should celebrate, commemorate it. Lumping and honoring the generic “Presidents” Day does a disservice to the truly great and elevates the weak wholly ineffective one-term “wonders”, such as Jimmy Carter and George H. W. Bush, far too high. I support the bill that Congressman Roscoe Bartlett, who will reintroduce his "Washington-Lincoln Recognition Act," H.R. 75, on the 275th Anniversary of Washington's Birth on February 22, 1732 this week. This legislation will force the federal government to return honor to George Washington on HIS federal holiday that is being celebrated today.

Roberta Combs of the Christian Coalition in a recent Action Alert email quotes Congressman Roscoe, "A generic Presidents' Day diminishes the accomplishments of America's greatest Presidents, George Washington and Abraham Lincoln, while rewarding the mediocrity of others," said Congressman Roscoe Bartlett (R-6-MD) explaining why he has reintroduced his legislation, the Washington-Lincoln Recognition Act, H.R. 75, to restore recognition of the federal holiday that will be observed on Monday, February 19, 2007 by its legal name, Washington's Birthday. February 22, 2007 is the 275th anniversary of George Washington's birth. There has never been a President's Day federal holiday!"

“The big lie of Presidents' Day stems from the 1968 law which shifted the observance of most federal holidays to Mondays," said Congressman Bartlett. "George Washington's birthday was one of the original federal holidays, but it is no longer observed on his actual birthday. . . "

“Finally, Congressman Bartlett said, “There would be no Declaration of Independence, no United States of America, no Constitution, and no Presidency at all without George Washington. He is also the only President elected unanimously, not once, but twice. . . . Presidents' Day is a historical myth that is more damaging because it eliminates Washington's indispensable greatness from our conversations, news stories and school lessons about this federal holiday. H.R. 75 would help correct this ongoing historic mistake."”

Kathleen Parker, a Washing Post writer, in an article titled, “Schools No Longer Interested in George Washington” reinforces the need for Congressman Roscoe’s bill. She writes, “Once ubiquitous in American classrooms, Washington's portrait has all but disappeared from schools. When Bill Sanders, a New Jersey businessman, noticed the first president was missing from his daughter's classroom, he set out to correct the oversight and started a project called Portraits of Patriots.

“He began producing high-quality prints of Washington from an 1862 engraving based on Gilbert Stuart's famous portrait . . . also lobbied for state legislation proposing that at least one Washington portrait be placed in each school district.
“Although a bill passed the House several years ago, it died in a Senate committee after the New Jersey Education Association (NJEA) objected. Nancy Volte, spokeswoman for the NJEA, summed up the general sentiment to USA Today:

“``Requiring legislation to honor one person does a disservice to many individuals,'' she said. ``There are so many others who were also instrumental in securing our country's freedom.''

“Maybe so, but only one person was the first president of the United States. Only one man was Gen. George Washington, who led American troops in the decisive battle of the revolution.

Such silly sensitivity has displaced intellectual honesty in American education. We've produced a generation with no sense of national identity and little connection to the nation's collective memory.

“In the process, we've traded life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness for fat, dumb and happy.”

This bill many not be as critical and fundamental as either the Life at Conception Act or the Marriage Protection Act. Yet it is symbolic of the need to return to our roots. It is symbolic of the need to begin to turn back the near100 year liberal tide, which is a tsunami-like wave wrecking America – our history, our traditions, our principles and our values.


Contact your Congressman at 202-225-3121 or you can go to here (to email your Representative and urge him or her to co-sponsor Congressman Bartlett's bill, H.R. 75, the "Washington-Lincoln Recognition Act."

The Islamic “Peace” Plan

The following article is written by "Sam".

On Bill Bennett’s “Morning in America” radio talk show he had an interview with Rudy Giuliani, the former mayor of New York City and one of the leading GOP contenders for the Presidency in ’08. The question was asked, “What would you call this War on Terror, and Rudy responded, “It is the Islamic War on America.” I could not agree with Mayor Giuliani more.

Terror, murder, rape, wanton destruction is basic to how Islam is advanced. Islam advanced through conquest across North Africa, which was once a Christian land, and into Spain, where it was stopped through heavy fighting. It also moved forward through the Christian areas in what is now modern Turkey and Yugoslavia and was halted at the Austria-Hungarian Empire. Otherwise all Europe would have become Moslem.

The United States of America is the strongest nation in the world today, but it has a weakness. America has become a godless, immoral country, which is divided between the God-haters and those who love God. Seeing this weakness the Islamic religion is in full attack mode to bring Islam to power over all other thought and rid the world of Christians and Jews or make them pay a slave tax to stay alive. They would do away with the Constitution and make Sharia law the law of the land.

The immigration of Moslems into the country is just a new way of attacking a nation since they could not win by direct armed assault. See the pertinent CNS article, “10,000 Saudi Students on US Campuses”. Yet to those weaker than the US military they do attack through armed assault. Once they are strong enough they will attack in the United States and their allies will support them.

Why Press "1" for English?

Thanks to T.D., friend of AGC, who forwarded this picture in an email this week.

This picture is worth a thousand words, isn't it? Anyone wishing to become a citizen of the United States should frist enter the country legally and then second, learn the English language. Pilgrim, learn English if you know what is good for you.

Our government needs to stop appeasing and accommodating especially the illegal aliens invading our nation and the complicit Mexican and other foreign governments.

President Bush, do your job in securing the borders and enforcing our immigration laws. Tighten up on law breaking businesses who hire, aid and abet illegals.

The Agony & the Ecstasy

I watched a classic movie, The Agony and the Ecstasy (1965), this week staring Charlton Heston as artist Michelangelo and Rex Harrison as Catholic Pope Julius II.

According to one movie
reviewer, “The movie portrays Pope Julius II, "the warrior Pope" in good light. He took up the sword to finally bring an end to French interference in the papacy. . . And of course, despite the notorious division of Italy into city states, he struggled to free that country from foreign domination while keeping the (P)apal (S)tates intact.

”Rome is correctly shown as a city in decay during the Middle Ages. It took Julius II to finally build a Basilica worthy to be the focus of world Christianity. His patronage of the arts and of grand architecture enabled Rome to justly keep the title "The Eternal City."”

Some of the agony and ecstasy comes into play over the competing visions of Michelangelo and Pope Julius over the wondrous work o painting the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel. Pope Julius commissions Michelangelo to paint a particular vision, how he (the pope) saw the end result. Being the great and independent artist that he was, Michelangelo reluctantly began to paint the Chapel ceiling, but after completing a portion of it, he was upset with it and boldly defaced what work he had done and quit and ran away from the project.

During the time away from work on the Sistine Chapel he (Michelangelo) had a vision, an epiphany if you will, or a revelation from God, as what to paint on that ceiling. Eventually, he was apprehended by the Pope’s army and after sharing his dream with the Pope, Julius excitingly concurred and Michelangelo began the arduous task of painting his vision. What a massive project. It took years to complete it. But the wait was worth it. It stands today as an expression of Biblical truth and honors God in its timeless beauty.


Much the same way today in America we have become decadent as in the days of Rome. We need something to lift us up from the mire. We need something that would bring us back to our strong, solid, Christian roots. We need a new vision. We need new leadership who will be adhering to true conservative and Judeo-Christian principles.

We need someone unlike our current President, who has not been consistent. After being elected by conservatives and Christians – the values voters - he has not lived up to his promises. He cashed in his political capital on - an amnesty for illegal aliens - unsecured border- -big government - the Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America - no child left behind – failed policies.

i an saddened to say, President Bush's vision of America is much like Pope Julius’ vision for the Sistine Chapel ceiling, inferior. President Bush, along with much of the present GOP party leadership lacks the creativity, the purity of principle, the splendor of a truly great conservative, Judeo-Christian vision for America. The closest recent President who captured even an inkling of this vision was President Ronald Reagan.


I consider all of the current crop of Democrat Party candidates for President as a bunch of barbarian invaders, internal terrorists and traitors, who’s vision is more suited for painting their vision on the bottom of a septic tank than for the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel. That is how far afield they are from the principles and values of the Founders of these United States. The liberal Democrat Party elite represent the barbarians invading the Holy City of Rome.


We need visionary leadership, like a Michelangelo and a Julius, once again in our country to preserve, to strengthen the things that remain of the greatness of a God blessed America and to regain her lost glory, all for the honor and glory of God Himself.

This is not advocating creating a Theocracy, but simply restoring the Washingtonian Republican-Democracy founded on Judeo-Christian principles, values and ethics. The next two years will be shear agony dealing with the crazed barbarians currently occupying places of leadership in the Congress. Let us pray and work toward 2008 when we will enjoy a bit of ecstasy when we elect a true conservative President and many more conservative representatives, who will practice what they preach and politicize.

Let us set out to find and to commission America’s next Michelangelo vision and find supporters like the physical and spiritual warrior Pope Julius II. We can and we must defeat the barbarians!

“Hate Crimes” Bill, a Faux Pas

John Tiffany writes today in an article, “On Jan. 5, liberal Rep. Sheila Jackson-Lee (DTexas) reintroduced so-called “hate crimes” legislation in Congress. The bill is numbered H.R. 254. “Hate” crimes laws—the brainchild of the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) of B’nai B’rith—are found in states and locales across America, but this new measure in Congress would enact a federal hate crime statute.”Essentially, hate crimes laws would add additional criminal penalties upon anyone convicted of a crime against an individual when that crime, according to the proposed legislation, is “motivated by the actual or perceived race, color, national origin, religion, sexual orientation, gender, or disability of the victim.”

"In short, although there are already laws against shooting someone and killing them—it’s called murder—if a perpetrator is found to have committed that crime because of an alleged bias against the victim, it would now be considered a federal crime because of that bias. There will be at least an additional 10 year federal penalty applied, even if— for example—someone only punched another person. If death results in the course of such a so-called “hate” crime being committed, a life sentence in prison is provided for under this federal legislation.”

Hate crimes legislation is (1) unnecessary, (2) a way for homosexuals to have their immoral, unnatural behavioral choices legitimized and (3) stifling to free speech and religious expression.

First, as the above article points out, there are already laws on the books against assault and of murder. Homosexuals are no better than any other human being or class of human beings, in fact their behavior is not only repugnant and immoral, unnatural it is condemned by most major religions in the world. Homosexuals do not deserve any special class treatment or protections. Furthermore, they insult black American and women when they declare “sexual orientation” to be a civil rights issue.

Second, homosexuals desperately want to legitimize, justify, certify their immoral lifestyle. In essence they want the government and society to “bless” their debased behavior. Like abortion, which codified the acceptability of the slaughtering innocent pre-born human beings, homosexuals hope to similarly make “legit” their evil practices. These two, abortion and assimulating homosexuality into society are the two great evils hanging over America today like a threatening black storm cloud, a veritable tsunami in the making.

Third, once hate crimes legislation is enacted, as it has already been in Canada and France, for example, simply quoting or preaching the Biblical principles or standards or precepts about homosexual practices could land you a fine and even jail time. This is one of the real purposes behind this deceptive law. Homosexuals do not want their sin pointed out. We all want our sins to remain hidden. This is only natural. As with all other sinful behavior or crimes we may commit (adultery, theft, illicit drug sales, pedophilia or any of a number of other sins to long to enumerate here) homosexuality is wrong and should be condemned. Next we will want to legalize theft or pedophilia. ]

Tiffany concludes his article stating, “. . . because the Democrats are in control of both the House of Representatives and the Senate, there will be an even greater push to get the legislation enacted.

". . . (Urge) those who oppose this insidious legislation to redouble their efforts to block H.R. 254 so that it never reaches the floor of the House. H.R. 254 has been referred to the House Judiciary Committee, and . . . (Suggest) (we) contact all members of the committee and urge that they oppose the legislation. . . keep your message short and to the point: “Please don’t vote for the David Ray Hate Crimes Prevention Act, H.R.254. . . .”

"You can write all of the representatives in question (as well as your own representative and every member of the House) in care of the following general address: U.S. House of Representatives, Washington, DC 20515. To telephone members of the House, you may use the regular number for the U.S. Capitol switchboard at 1-(202) 224-3121. Or there is a toll free number you may use: 1-877-851-6437."

A faux pas is a social blunder, which is exactly what we would have if we passed the "hate crimes" bill currently fomenting in the U.S. Congress. Make A Good Choice and urge the members of the House Judiicary Committee and your Congressman or Congresswoman to vote against the David Ray Hate Prevention Act.

Osama Obama?

I’ve been getting a rumor email about Barack Obama being a Wahabbi Muslim, the same sect of Islam as Osama Bin Laden. I decided to check it out and found this article. What a feast for political pundits and gossips!

There’s an e-mail currently making the rounds claiming that Osama bin … Osama Obama … Obama is a closet Muslim. Charlie Sykes debunks it here and directs readers to a Snopes examination of what amounts to an Internet urban legend.

But what exactly is the source of this Internet urban legend? Apparently none other than The Hildabeast, who’s in it to win it.

Allahpundit has more

Prediction: this will play out like the Willie Horton issue in 1988, a legitimate issue raised by none other than Sen. Algore against Michael Dukakis then spun to be a Republican smear appealing to white redneck Southern racists.

Hillary’s camp is the one behind the “Obama is a Muslim” smear but it will be connected by the Democrats to Republicans and conservatives and that will be the line taken by the Drive By Media.

I say "so what if the rumor is true or false". It is no rumor that he is in favor of continuing the legalized murdering of innocent babies. The Truth about Barack Hussein Obama is:

• Obama voted to not outlaw Partial Birth Abortion (1997 Illinois ban, 2003 Federal ban)
• Obama voted against protecting born alive infants from abortionists (2002, Induced Infant Liability Act, and the Born Alive Infant Protection Act )


If most Americans can know that and still vote for him then we deserve to have Osama Bin Laden as our President.

God, Gore & Global Warming has a great article today by Phil Brennan, entitled, Analysis: Al Gore Ducks Northeast Blizzard. The following is a brief excerpt from the article.

“As a blizzard of snow and ice pummels the Northeast after trouncing the Midwest, and waves of Arctic cold fronts drop much of America below sub freezing weather, the $64,000 question is, Where is Al Gore?
Gore claims that global warming is an immediate problem facing the United States and the world, and places like New York and Chicago could feel like Caribbean haunts.

“If there is any doubt that God has a sense of humor, it has to be dispelled by a headline in Wednesday's Drudge Report: "House hearing on 'warming of the planet' canceled after ice storm."
He followed up with this: "Save it for a sunny day: Maryville Univ. in St. Louis area canceling screening of Al Gore's 'Inconvenient Truth' because of a snowstorm."

This piece illustrates a number of things, God is in absolute control, man should get over himself, global warming is bunk, Al Gore is a joke. The position of AGC (the A Good Choice blog) is that global warming is a flawed unproven theory. The weather is subject more to natural climatic cycles and the hand of God than it is to the amount of CO2 coming out of our SUVs. Global warming is not man-made no matter how many convenient lies Gore and his legion of liberal scientists and meteorologists lie.

Other evidence of scientific lies on both a macro level - evolution as the sole “politically correct” explanation for the origin of life and on a micro level - the strident and stringent denial that human life begins at conception.

Counting Down the Terrible Ten: Who’s to Blame for ‘06 GOP Defeats

Richard A.Viguerie in an email today wrote asking, “Who was responsible for the Republicans’ disastrous defeats, including loss of control of the House and Senate, in the 2006 elections?” He asks voters to take a survey in which he offers a choice of 30 possible reasons or factors for the GOP defeat last November. He goes on to say, “Give us your choices of the top 10 people, groups, or factors that deserve the most blame for this debacle. And ask your friends and relatives to visit this website and render their verdicts as well.

Well I was so challenged by the question and the reasons offered, I listed my top ten reasons for the GOP defeat from the 30 Viguerie lists in his survey. Here is my list and added commentary in the brackets. Also as of the time I took the survey this evening the number at the end of each item is where this particular reason stood in the current survey results. I got 8 of the 10 that the primarily conservative survey takers got.

I added a write-in reason for the defeat, which was my top reason. This was an interesting and enlightening exercise for me. The biggest blame can be pinned on me, President Bush and other alleged “conservative” leaders.

10 - Conservative media that kept silent while the GOP became the party of Big Government [This includes Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity who for too long were reticent to speak out forcefully against some of the outrageous spending such as the worthless No Child Let Behind Program and thereby mislead and lulled many to sleep;] [#6]

9. - Legal corruption, such as spending on special interest groups to “buy” their votes, including earmarks. [Greater concern for retaining power than doing the right thing. Lining there own pockets and sucking all the benefit from the system and leaving their principles at home.] [#3]

8 - Illegal corruption, such as Mark Foley, Robert Ney, and Jack Abramoff. [Not taking action sooner on these people. Republicans are held at a much higher standard then Democrats – look at Barney Frank and Gerry Studds – staying in power and not being ostracized by their party for much worse corruption,]

7 - Mainstream media that may have influenced the voters to throw out the Republicans [Don Rather , Peter Jennings and Tom Brokaw and CNN, NPR and PBS so obviously slanted their coverage toward putting the Dem and liberals in best light and the GOP and conservatives in the worst light possible. ]

6 - Conservative leaders who kept silent when the GOP became the party of Big Government [This includes every one of us who did not speak out more forcefully. Christian leaders who by withholding criticism acquiesced the Administration’s un-Christian, un-Conservative behaviors.]

5 - Former Majority Leader Bill Frist (R-TN) [Seemingly going with the flow never bringing to task any of the things that would eventually cripple the party Not standing strong enough up to the RINOs and Dems and demanding to end the filibustering of Bush’s Judicial appointments, pro-life issues, etc.]

4 - Former Majority Leader Tom DeLay (R-TX) [Not standing strong for his conservative principles in limiting government and doing enough to support life issues.]

3 - Congressman Dennis Hastert (R-IL), former Speaker of the House [Allowing the Democrats to stall or thwart nearly all of the conservative agenda.] [#9]

2 - President George W. Bush [Once he got re-elected he went to town on the North American Union, has done little or nothing on illegal alien invasion and is seemingly is in cahoots with the Mexican government on keeping the border porous. If he is not getting a cut of the drug trafficking he must be personally benefiting from the Mexican government - going after the two border guards Ramos and Compreon in an extraordinary fashion.. He has not maintained consistently true to his conservative principles, and makes you doubt if he ever had any to start with. I feel like I have been pimped by this President for my two votes in ’00 and ‘04 . . . He has negated much of what he has done right with the war on terror and vetoing the embryonic stem cell research law which in retrospect seems no more than a bone thrown to his faithful dogs – the values voters who elected him TWICE.] [#2]

1 - The Values Voters [The Values Voters who did not vote in the last election and/or who were too timid or too lethargic or apathetic in not demanding more of their representatives including the President on a day–to-day basis during the previous six years. Not being as politically active between elections as the liberals were.]

I take a part of the blame for not expecting more from my representatives and not getting my expectations better known to them.

What’s Wrong with Homosexuality?

The values upon which our country was founded are not subjective. They are objective: freedom of religion, family, liberty, independence. Today we want them to be subjective - whatever we want them to be - irrespective of right or wrong. We say, wrongly, that there are no moral absolutes. That is a value in and of itself, I think.

Heterosexuality has been the standard for thousands of years. Homosexuality has been a crime at least on the books (like immigration enforcement LOL) for years. The "enlightened" USSC declared the Texas sodomy law unconstitutional, which was as terrible a mistake as declaring the pre-born baby a disposable product with no rights and no recognition of his or her humanity. Both were tragic mistakes.

Clearly from law, common sense, a Judeo-Christian biblical perspective and from nearly every other major religion - homosexuality is bad, heterosexuality is good. Moral relativism does not fly in my book. There definitely are moral absolutes no matter how loudly the protestations to the contrary.

Some say we must be tolerant of others. Some say that only thinking something is good or makes it so. This is wrong. There are moral absolutes. Murder is wrong. Theft is wrong. Adultery is wrong. Prostitution is wrong. Helping the poor to get on their feet is right. Voting is right. Abstinence before marriage is right. Treating the elderly with honor and respect is right. Opening the door for a woman or a disabled person is right. Helping an elderly woman or a blind person to cross the street is right. Cheating on your income tax is wrong. Paying a fair wage is right. Driving your car while intoxicated is wrong . . .

The left leaves a legacy where too many people today think that evil is good and that good is evil. It is essentially because we reject morality. This is why we are in the fix we are in right now as a nation. We are in a moral black hole. We need to return to the tried and true American values - honest work, personal responsibility, traditional one-man, one-woman marriages and family units, helping our neighbor, respect for life, etc.

Imam’s Invocation Is Illustrative

Warner Todd Huston writes that February 4th, 2007 the Democratic National Committee had Husham al-Husainy give the invocation at their winter meeting. Debbie Schlossel reports that this Muslim cleric is a supporter of Hezbollah which is a known terrorist organization.

In his prayer the Imam said:

“We thank you, god to send us your messages through our father Abraham, and Jesus and Mohammad, through you, god, we unite, so guide us to the right spot we wish for peace, equality and help us to stop the war and violence, and oppression and occupation.”

Now who is the “we” in the above prayer? Is it not that militant Islam which al-Husainy represents AND the Democrat Party who invited him to pray? In this prayer they thank god and unite through god. Here the Imam is telling the world that militant Islam and the Democrat Party are one in being allies. “Help us stop the war and violence, and oppression and occupation.” The enemy believes America can’t stand violence so they are being as violent as they can be to get America to bring its Armed Forces home. The Democrats are doing what they can to discourage the President from winning the war and may vote to de-fund the war. Militant Islam and the Democrat Party we can see are working together for the defeat of the United States. This is quite natural since they serve the same god, who is the god of this world, Satan.

How do I know this? Islam teaches that God has no Son. Therefore according to Islam, Jesus could not be the Son of God. Nonetheless, this was the very reason for which Jesus was crucified. The High Priest said, "I adjure you by the Blessed One are you the Son of the Most High?" Jesus answered, “That is correct and you will see me beside the power on high.” The Sanhedrin declared this to be blasphemy and said He should be crucified. Jesus never recanted. The people said, “We have a law and by that law He should die; for being a man He makes Himself God." This then was Jesus' "crime".

Anna Nicole Smith, America's Idol & Symbol

Much has been written about the now dead goddess, Anna Nicole Smith. Frankly the coverage is almost unbearable. What did this woman contribute to society except scandal and her half-clothed and unclothed body and a multitude of fodder for tabloids?

The traffic and untimely death of Anna Nicole Smith symbolizes in many ways the fall of America. Here we have a beautiful woman, who sold her body to a sleazy pornographic magazine (Playboy), who danced her way into the heart of a 89 year old millionaire and who married him for his outstanding good looks. After his death and the death of her drugged up son she continued to sell her body to the movies, TV and advertisers. She gave herself away apparently to various men. There is even a major dispute over who was the father of her baby daughter. Decadence, depravity narcissism could all describe America and America’s infatuation with this beauty queen.

Isn’t this much like America, squandering our bountiful resources on ourselves and our own pleasures? Lusting for more of everything from beauty to bucks? We conveniently dispose of the “products” of conception as if they were yesterday’s newspaper. We abuse ourselves despite all we have been blessed with – we overindulge on food, we pay big dollars to lose the fat, we get fat again the cycle repeats over the years. We allow ourselves to get addicted to fame, drugs, alcohol, sex, power, pornography, food etc. We are living examples of an undisciplined and a life ruled by our passions.

We glamorize and worship pornography and sex in the movies we watch, the books and magazines we read, the immoral music we listen to, the indecent behaviors we practice and pay billions for all of it. Yet people are homeless and hungry in America. We deny children’s access to God in our schools, the only true hope for America and for true salvation> We reject the things which we have known as a nation since our inception, but which now in an “enlightened” era we reject, we marginalize we ridicule or ignore God, Jesus Christ and the people who love and follow Him. We worship false gods and idols – money, celebrities, sports, sex, drugs, alcohol and reason. Like Anna Nicole Smith we are dead, yet unlike Anna still walk and breathe at least physically but many of us are as spiritually dead as Anna is physically . . .

America it is time to wake up and to strengthen the things that remain and to turn away from the decadence, decay and depravity and to walk again with the God who has so blessed America. We must do so before it will be too late to do otherwise. . .

A Few More Four Letter Words




The above short list of words have been stripped of their true meanings and have been severely, cleverly and deliberately twisted to now mean something totally opposite of the original meanings. They have become nefarious to put it bluntly.


"Choice" now means freedom to kill innocent babies any time and for nearly any reason at the will of a woman, the "mother". Actually, the baby has no choice. Even the vilest depraved dishonorable guilty criminal has endless appeal rights to their execution order. The unique person being carried in his or her "mother" has been denied personhood to justify their eventual "legal" demise.

The baby has no rights. The baby has less than an animal, in fact. PETA is there to protect the animal. No one is there to protect the baby when he or she faces slaughter. When we slaughter animals for food we have to kill the animal humanely. We currently allow abortionist to commit partial birth abortions. The same abortion procedure was specifically banned by Congress and signed by the President. Yet, subsequently was immediately tied up in the courts by willing accomplices, who reside in the judicial system, to the murder of babies. We can thank the Federal Court for this heinous and monstrous decision. Will the sometimes gutless sometimes guileful United States Supreme rule correctly this summer on this particular form of cruel and unusual punishment of innocent human beings? I pray that they will.


"Tolerance" has come to mean to be tolerant of all views and ideas and beliefs except pure orthodox Christianity. That is not acceptable to the Political Correctness crowd. Watch the bias of the Main Stream Media and Hollywood and our Educators. Listen to how Christians are characterized, extremists, haters, etc.

Teaching and even demonstrating Islam in our classrooms is acceptable in the name of diversity and tolerance and not wanting to offend our "brothers" of the "religion of peace." But if you are a U.S. Navy Chaplain and dare pray in the name of Jesus, you are likely to be drummed out of the service. If you are a high school coach don't dare mention the name of Jesus or evoke God because that is putting your beliefs on others and might offend an unbelieving atheist. Don't even have a cross in a War Memorial or a Nativity Scene in the Public Square because it might offend some Buddha-believer.

This is America, when did being and practicing Christianity become intolerable? Why is it so intolerable to dare to question the flawed theories or evolution or global warming in the classroom where it is accepted by "faith" of all things? Intelligent Design and Creationism is as valid an explanation for the origin of life taking less faith, than does the belief in Darwinism.


Homosexuals must be very miserable beings. They have to adapt a word to disguise their immoral, unnatural and primarily learned behaviors. They desperately seek justification to be codified into law, just as the atrocious abortion procedure has been "legalized". They demand special rights for "hate crimes", which are not necessary and which have as their intent to silence the biblical perspective on homosexuality. "Gay", this is the most blatant corruption of a word as there ever was. It sounds, so happy, so light, so free and delightful, so benign It is not.

The homosexual lifestyle and its associated multiple promiscuous partners is one of the primary vectors for the transmission of AIDS. Homosexual behavior, notice I am not saying homosexuals, is a malignancy on any civilized society. The biblical mandate is clear, it is not acceptable to God, as is adultery, fornication, prostitution, theft, abuse, alcoholism, and a multitude of other sins.. The homosexual is loved by God as are all of us sinners. Nonetheless, God considers homosexuality to be an abomination. That is a pretty clear and direct statement wouldn't you say?

Our notorious Supreme Court made another mistake when they overturned the Texas sodomy laws. These laws protect society from harmful behavior. Our schools are not only teaching the "tolerating" (to use a four letter word myself) of the homosexual lifestyle. They are requiring the actual "acceptance" of this alternative lifestyle. They are even encouraging children to explore their own sexual orientation at ever earlier ages. This is indoctrination into what is essential an immoral and unacceptable lifestyle and behavior. It is the corrupting of our young people. Hollywood, the music industry, TV, our educational system and our extreme liberal politicians and their financiers spread this immoral and unnatural lifestyle from coast to coast. It will cost society.


Whenever any clear thinking conservative or Christian conservative hears any of these words being bantered about, it should raise caution flags,. It should be a warning, pay close attention to the true meaning behind these hollow words being said. What is being said may be a boldface lie, untruth.

The ideas behind each of these three words are as bad as any other vulgar or vile four letter words that are still regarded as inappropriate in certain circles. Think of the lyrics in the worst gang-banging rap song and you have an idea of the true nature of these three words.

Make A Good Choice be very careful to purge these words from your vocabulary, or if you use them you may need to define your words so that they are not misinterpreted or misconstrued and listen carefully to anyone who uses these words. If used properly these words could signal to you that something terrible is being taught or promoted.

Mixing Religion and Politics, Part 6: Conclusion

Part 1 link

My political philosophy is the same as my philosophy about any other subject. The Bible is the guide to what is right. The Bible says that governing authorities are “agents of God’s wrath” (Romans 13:1-5) sent by God to punish people for evil, “not bear[ing] the sword in vain”. This is the primary (if not the only) legitimate function of government. God is sovereign above all and governments should not assume power that is not given to them by God. Any commandment from God in the Bible should be assumed to be universal unless otherwise stated. God’s directives concerning the punishment of criminals are not exceptions. Psalm 2 talks about how God will pour out his wrath on nations whose rulers want to “cast off the fetters and chains” of God’s laws. Throughout the Bible, minimum requirements of fairness and justice are given by God for the nations to follow, such as the punishment of all murderers, thieves, and the sexually immoral. In addition, there is much wisdom and advice given for rulers in the Bible. These principles do not include exacting justice on foreign nations (unless they violate the attacking nation’s sovereignty). They do not include punishing people for things in their thoughts and hearts (such as hate) because only God is qualified to judge these things.

I am not trying to create a theocracy in which people are coerced into joining a particular religion, but only to uphold principles of justice and fairness that come from God and oppose any system that advertises sin, teaches people how to sin, gives people incentives to sin, or hinders Christians from obeying God’s word (particularly in regard to evangelism).

Man-made systems of justice are always flawed because of selfishness. If godly principles are abandoned, the default is “economic benefit”. That is to say, anything is acceptable as long as it benefits the nation as a whole economically. This is based ultimately on selfishness, so any such economic gain is only temporary.

For example, in 2005, the Supreme Court ruled that governments can take away property from anyone as long as they can justify it economically. This is the new definition of “public use”. Governments are already using this power to take homes and even churches to sell to businesses because they are more economically profitable. The same Supreme Court Justices who allowed this are also the very same ones in favor of preventing the States from punishing the murderers of the unborn. Thou shalt not murder and thou shalt not steal are beginning to lose their meaning in this country.

It is interesting that the Beast will require that his mark be placed in the same places (on the hand or forehead) that God commanded his commandments to be placed. (Read part 4 and Revelation 13). He will “think to change times and laws” (Daniel 7:25) as opposed to Christ whose laws are unchangeable because God does not change (Matthew 5:17-19, Malachi 3:7, James 1:17) The Beast will come on a platform of peace, safety, and economic prosperity. Then he will take away the property rights (the ability to buy or sell) and eventually even the right to life of anyone who refuses to take his mark. How much closer do we have to get to this before liberal Christians change their minds and start opposing this lawlessness? When real Christians stand up and oppose the Beast and the taking of his mark, will they still be accusing them of “mixing religion and politics”? Make a Good Choice and commit every part of your life to Jesus Christ, uncompromisingly condemning sin whenever and wherever it’s found. Obey God and leave all the consequences to him.
