Freshwater Termination Hearing – Days 5 & 6

Righting First Amendment Wrongs

Mount Vernon City School Board wants Freshwater Expelled

The second phase (Day 3- ) of the Freshwater Termination Hearing continued today.

A Circular Argument?, Or Going Around in Circles!

DAY 6

The Freshwater termination hearing continued for the 5th day today. Day one and two were held earlier this month. The MountVernonNews.com newspaper’s website reported today that another student was called upon to testify. This 17 year old student said that he was also “marked” with a Tesla coil, the electro-static device used by Freshwater and other teachers demonstrating scientific principles. This youth also related that Freshwater related inconsistencies in the theory of evolution and supported alternative explanations to the flawed, yet widely accepted, theory.

DAY 5


The Columbus Dispatch newspaper ran a story on page B3 of today’s paper and on its website regarding what transpired yesterday (Thursday) at the hearing. A science teacher in the Mount Vernon High School testified that she had to “re-teach” (or is it reprogram?) the students who matriculated to high school from middle school and who were taught science by Mr. Freshwater. Odd, because last school year (2007-8) it was previously reported that Mr. Freshwater’s science students finished with the highest scores among the middle school science classes on the standardized state tests. How dare the students think for themselves? What “evil” this Mr. Freshwater must be to have his students thinking critically regarding the flawed unproven theory of evolution! Does the movie expos of academic freedom restrictions rampant on our college campuses, which was recently released on DVD, Expelled, No Intelligence Allowed, ring a (school) bell? That same limitation of academic freedom is apparently present in many of America’s elementary, middle and high schools, as well.

Read more about what went on during DAY FIVE:

Teacher: Students were mistaught

Medical expert testifies at hearing

It sounds to me like this hearing will not end this week, but will be continued next month. It will not continue next week because of attorney schedule conflicts. So I would guess it would be continued until sometime in the middle of the month.

The expense must be mounting on both sides in the case. The attorneys’ fees for 5 days plus preparation and legal experts must be horrendous. All this over a desire to take away a man’s right to have a Bible on his desk and to live out his faith outside the four walls of the stained glass building. Our founding fathers would freak at this freedom fleecing fiasco.

PLEASE FORWARD THIS TO YOUR CONGRESSMAN












I got the message below from ALL (The American Life League). He are my important comments on this message:

I did sign the petition to have the language added to Title X of the DHHS Appropriations bill that would prevent any funds in it from being allocated to Planned Parenthood. But I have 3 questions about this.

First, why now? Why couldn’t this have been done when there was a Republican controlled congress? Wouldn’t that have been much easier? They had six years! Some of the Democrats (e.g. Heath Shuler) who were elected in 2006 were actually more conservative than the incumbent Republicans who they defeated, but there weren’t THAT many.

Secondly, why only PP? Why not prevent ALL abortion providers from receiving funds? Whose toes do you not want to step on, Mr. Pence? If this amendment is added to the bill, Planned Parenthood could easily create a spin off corporation with a different name and do the same dirty business as always.
Mike Pence did vote for H.R. 3010 (109th Congress), a DHHS appropriations bill that does fund abortions, and so did ALMOST ALL OF THE OTHER REPUBLICANS.

That brings us to the third question. Why not just stop voting for DHHS appropriations bills? It’s like as if the DHHS is some kind of monster that will eat us all alive if we stop feeding it. The whole idea of federally funded health services isn’t even constitutionally legal (see Amendment X, U.S. Constitution). It’s like as if voting yes on one of these bills which has abortion funding in it doesn’t count as voting for abortion funding! I have seen
candidate positions comparisons put out by the National Right to Life which say about John McCain Voted consistently against federal funding of abortion.This is a BLATANT LIE. He DID vote for H.R. 3010 (109th Congress) which DOES federally fund abortions! Lately McCain, Obama, Biden, and Clinton have been abstaining from these votes on DHHS bills which contain abortion funding (e.g. H.R. 2764). IF YOU WANT TO TRACK SUCH BILLS now or in the future, go to http://thomas.loc.gov/bss/ and search for “Department of Health and Human Services”, and then look for appropriations bills. The solution to the problem of abortion funding is simple. STOP VOTING FOR YOUR CONGRESSMAN UNLESS HE REFUSES TO VOTE FOR THESE BILLS! If they’re willing to sacrifice unborn babies or promote promiscuity for the sake of a social program, then they’re not worth it. Jesus said:

Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.
Matt 7:21-23 (KJV)


I once contacted my state representative (now running for state senate) about an answer he put on a Cincinnati Right to Life questionnaire about passing legislation that would cut off all state funding to any organization that provides abortions. He indicated on the survey that he wouldn’t. So I wrote to him and asked him why. He gave me some sob story that if we cut off all funds even to hospitals that provide abortions, then so many cancer patients would not receive treatments that they need. I tried to explain to him that funding healthcare is not a legitimate function of government and that this would better left to charities and insurance companies to pay for, but he wouldn’t listen. Maybe, just maybe, IF WE CUT OFF THE FUNDS TO THESE HOSPITALS, then they would STOP PERFORMING ABORTIONS.

Now here is the message from ALL:
-----------------------------------------------------------------
"Working for the day when no taxpayer money will go to Planned Parenthood."

In this issue:

Our Do-Nothing Congress
The Prevention First Act
Thank You for Signing!
The Infamous Bailout Bill
October Action Item
Good News! Planned Parenthood Investigated for Fraud

Our Do-Nothing Congress
Efforts to defund Planned Parenthood continue throughout the country while an amendment to Title X of the Health and Human Services appropriations bill lies dormant, frustrating pro-life leaders in Congress who are doing their best, given the situation. The "do-nothing" congressional leadership has passed continuing resolutions for all appropriations bills, save one omnibus bill for three subcommittees this year. The subcommittee budgets addressed by the omnibus bill were all related to war spending.
Meanwhile, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services continues to fund Planned Parenthood, unabated and unchallenged. It is speculated that when the new Congress votes on appropriations bills in March, members will continue their Washington vacation and again pass continuing resolutions, instead of reexamining how they spend our tax dollars. While our economy is struggling, it is unbelievable that our legislators would have such a cavalier attitude toward spending, especially when Planned Parenthood, a government contractor, is receiving national attention because it is suspected of concealing crimes and perpetrating fraud. This is in addition to the intrinsic immorality of many of its legal enterprises, especially promoting and providing abortion and contraception, and promoting sexual promiscuity to youth through its notorious sex education programs and other unsavory activities.
The Prevention First Act

The Prevention First Act would provide millions upon millions of extra taxpayer dollars for Planned Parenthood.

Planned Parenthood's "comprehensive sex education" effort would receive a massive influx of government funding if the PFA is passed, resulting in more initiatives such as PP's disgusting
www.teenwire.com being pushed to our youth.

Medicaid funding would also be expanded to permanently cover contraception, "emergency" contraception and other "reproductive health services" for more low-income women.

This act would also mandate that private health insurers and government health care programs cover contraceptives to the extent that they currently cover prescription medications. This is the government mandating that insurance companies and your tax dollars pay for poison in the form of abortifacient contraceptives and highly abortifacient "emergency" contraceptives!

The
PFA is sponsored by Mr. Harry Reid in the Senate. Click here to view the PFA's cosponsors in the U.S. Senate. The PFA is sponsored by Mrs. Louise McIntosh Slaughter in the House of Representatives. The PFA's cosponsors in the U.S. House of Representatives can be viewed by clicking here.

Thank You for Signing!

As always, gathering signatures for our
Stop Planned Parenthood Tax Funding petition is a priority! We received an incredible response to our last Defunding Planned Parenthood Update in the form of increased signatures. We now have over 37,000!

Thank you and God bless you for your time, effort and dedication to fighting Planned Parenthood!

With your help
and your signatures, we can win the fight. When the Pence Amendment** to Title X of the Health and Human Services appropriations bill was proposed a little over one year ago, the amendment was only 22 votes shy of passing. We are very close to having the number of votes needed to strip Planned Parenthood of a large part of its government funding! When the Health and Human Services appropriations bill is considered again, we hope to have a stack of signatures that will be impossible for our legislators to ignore. Please encourage everyone to visit our petition page and sign!

**Pence Amendment (July 19, 2007): At the end of the bill (before the short title), insert the following: None of the funds made available under this Act shall be available to Planned Parenthood for any purpose under title X of the Public Health Services Act.

The Infamous Bailout Bill

In early October, our country was bogged down by a seriously faltering economy. As Congress considered the now-infamous
"Bailout Bill," American Life League spoke out to ensure that no monies went to Planned Parenthood. We are happy to report that when the final bill was passed and signed by President Bush, it provided no money to Planned Parenthood.

October Action Item

As you can see, there is much to do in the fight against Planned Parenthood. Please take the time to call your legislators and ask them to take action to defund Planned Parenthood!

Whenever an appropriations bill is up for a vote at the federal level, contact your legislators by e-mail or phone (by clicking
here and here) and ask them if any of the funds made available by the act will be available to Planned Parenthood. Ask them to have the following words added to every bill in order to ensure that Congress does not give any of our tax dollars to Planned Parenthood:

"None of the funds made available under this act shall be available to Planned Parenthood for any purpose."

Good News! Planned Parenthood Investigated for Fraud

Several legislators have called for an investigation of Planned Parenthood for possible fraud. Also, the Gerard Health Foundation is asking for the Department of Health and Human Services to conduct its own investigation of Planned Parenthood's handling of Medicaid reimbursements.

Additionally, American Life League has called for the attorneys general of all 50 states to investigate their own Planned Parenthood affiliates. ALL sent them documentation of an audit of Planned Parenthood of San Diego and Riverside Counties revealing that this California affiliate overcharged the government by over $5 million in a one-year audit period.

Three AGs have answered the call and are currently investigating! To encourage more investigations, please call and write to your state's attorney general and your state legislators. Go to
www.stopp.org/fraud to send a message to your Attorney General, calling for an investigation of other possible fraud from Planned Parenthood.
To find out more about government funding of Planned Parenthood and this audit, please watch our latest
ALL Report.

2008 Endorsements

Here are my endorsements for Congress for the 2008 election. I only support candidates who are pro-life, pro-peace, and pro-family. There may be some other candidates who are worth voting for, but these are ones that I know fit the following criterion to the best of my knowledge:

1. The candidate must be 100% pro-life. They must believe that all abortions should illegal, with a possible exception for life of the mother cases, but no rape and incest exceptions. A candidate who votes for abortion funding (including DHHS appropriations bills) is unacceptable.
2. The candidate must oppose the war in Iraq and favor a speedy withdraw. They must also oppose any new wars or unprovoked acts of aggression against other nations including the Iran blockade.
3. The candidate must oppose any government incentives to sinful behavior or the giving of special rights or protective categories for those who engage in sinful behavior, homosexuality in particular.

First, the Senate:

Bob Bird, Alaska
David Brownlow, Oregon
Bob Conley, South Carolina

For the House of Representatives:

George Lilly, Colorado 1st
Collins Bailey, Maryland 5th
Mike Hargadon, Maryland 7th
Barb Davis White, Minnesota 5th
Walter Jones, North Carolina 3rd
B.J. Lawson, North Carolina 4th
David Macko, Ohio 14th
Delia Lopez, Oregon 3rd
Doug Patterson, Oregon 5th
Ron Paul, Texas 14th*
Michael Delavar, Washington 3rd

*running unopposed

There may be some other candidates who fit the three criteria, but I could not verify their positions on them.

Robert Owens for Ohio Attorney General, part 2

Greg wrote an article earlier on this blog in support of Robert Owens for Ohio Attorney General. I have more information on this race and I can now confidently and whole-heartedly endorse him.

Robert Owens is the only candidate in the race who is pro-life with no exceptions. (See http://www.cincinnatirighttolife.org/surveys.asp#ohioag).

Robert Owens believes that marriage is a church institution, and not a government institution (see http://www.ohioelectioncentral.com/).

Robert Owens supports the “requiring teachers to present the evidences both supportive of and contradictory to the theory of evolution” (see http://www.ohioelectioncentral.com/).

Robert Owens supports tax credits for homeschooling (see http://www.ohioelectioncentral.com/).

Robert Owens personally supports Answers in Genesis (See http://www.cincinnatirighttolife.org/surveys.asp#ohioag).

Robert Owens is committed to uphold ALL of our constitutional rights and cleaning up the corruption that has plagued the AG office (see http://www.owens2008.com/).

John Freshwater Termination Hearing – Day 4

Righting First Amendment Wrongs

The second phase of the Freshwater Termination Hearing continued today.

DAY FOUR

Today, Wednesday, October 29, 2008, was the fourth day of the Freshwater Termination Hearing.
According to the MountVernonNews.com most of the morning and afternoon sessions revolved around the Mount Vernon City School Board attorney David Millstone, and the defendant’s attorney, Kelly Hamilton, questioning and cross-examining of Freshwater’s Middle School Principal, Bill White. The newspaper’s website mentioned that one of the areas of questioning by the school board's attorney of Mr. White was what constituted a religious display. On the other hand, Freshwater’s attorney asked White why other teachers where not asked to remove their “religious” displays this school year.

The hearing is expected to continue the end of the week.

Here is Richard B. Hoppe's account of DAY FOUR from his Panda'sThumb blog. Apparently he has been attending the actual hearing and provides much more detail than do any of the newspaper accounts.

DAY THREE

Richard Hoppe on his Panda’sThumb blog summarizes Day 3 of the hearing.

I do not agree with Hoppe’s bias as he covers the hearing, he seems to be convinced of Freshwater’s guilt and has him already convicted and terminated.

Spreading the Wealth



"From each according to his ability, to each according to his need (or needs)"

- - - Karl Marx, 1875


According to a Wikipedia entry this was a slogan popularized by Karl Marx, . . . “The phrase summarizes the principles that, under a communist system, every person should contribute to society to the best of their ability and consume from society in proportion to their needs, regardless of how much they have contributed. In the Marxist view, such an arrangement will be made possible by the abundance of goods and services that a developed communist society will produce; the idea is that there will be enough to satisfy everyone's needs.”

This anti-capitalistic philosophy failed miserably in the former Soviet Union and is failing in many of the so-called developed countries of Europe. Yet, to a great extent, Barack Hussein Obama AND to a lesser extent, John McCain, BOTH want to further force it upon America at the expense of free enterprise and our capitalistic system.


Vote NObama and NOmarx in NOvember.

In a 2001 Chicago Public Radio Interview Obama is discussing the best way to bring about a Redistribution of Wealth!!! This Video (clearly) (e)xposes the radical underneath the rhetoric!!!"

Obama says it is not through the courts, not through legislation, but administratively. Look out America, that is what you will get if you elect this elitist leftist socialist to the highest office of the land.

Freshwater Termination Hearing Phase Two Begins Today

Righting First Amendment Wrongs

Well the second phase of the Freshwater Termination Hearing got underway today. The hearing should end by the end of the week, hopefully.

Yesterday (Monday) Zachary Dennis' mother, Jenifer, spoke to the Columbus Dispatch revealing her son’s side of the story. She also unveiled a new effort her family is heading up to try to prevent any future “whistle blowing” child, who reports a teacher, from having to “go public” and face their accusers.

Today (Tuesday) phase two of the hearing started off with questioning of the 14 year old student, Zachary Dennis, who alleges that he was branded with a cross by Mr. Freshwater. The mother also testified that her son said his arm hurt and that he could not sleep the night he was “branded.” Although he did testify that he practiced hockey after school. John Freshwater’s attorney did not cross examine neither the boy nor his mother, because of what new information the mother had provided the Columbus Dispatch newspaper the day before. It seems that the media was privy to much of the information in this case even before the defendant’s attorney had the information. I think that the media is being, more then willingly I might add, used to influence public opinion against Mr. Freshwater.

Next John Freshwater was questioned by the School Board’s attorney. The school board asked him about several videos where he had publicly made statements about the case.

You can read more about the hearings and coverage of this case in the articles below.

Local Politics at Work

For a Conservative Ohio State House of Representatives

Monday night I witnessed a civil debate between two persons vying for the vacant seat of a term-limited state representative in Ohio’s 90th District. The debate was held in a vocational school in Mount Vernon, Ohio. It was attended by approximately 75 people. One of the candidates mentioned that it was the best attended gathering of all held for this office in this election cycle.

The debate was a back and forth between the two candidates. The moderator tossed out the same questions to each candidate on a rotating basis. They had either 2 or 3 minutes to answer. There was also a 1 minute rebuttal period for each candidate.

The debate was kind of a cross between the last McCain-Obama debate and Rick Warren's Saddleback Civil Forum.

I knew just a few things about the candidates prior to the debate. I left the debate knowing more than I had before. The Democratic candidate, Dwayne Grassbaugh was a farmer, small businessman and college graduate, who is new to politics. His strong point was that he visited each of the 45 townships in the district and felt that this was a good basis on which to build his understanding and representation as a new legislator. On the other hand he revealed that he was endorsed by the Ohio Education Association (OEA) and labor unions. He mentioned several times “green” Ohio, which to me is a catch phrase for over-the-line environmentalism.

On the other hand, Margaret Ann Ruhl, the Republican candidate, said that as having served as city and county auditor for over 20 years she brings an excellent experience and understanding of the government budgeting process to her job as a state representative. She emphasized the need to step up the use of clean coal and encouraging business develop instead of raising more taxes to stimulate growth of the Districts economy and to create jobs. She was not as articulate as was her opponent in expressing her opinions, but had superior ideas positions on the issues and experience.

Some of the topics covered where jobs, energy, health care, education and taxes. The Democrat expressed himself better on the issues. However, the Republican had better ideas. My major concern with the Democrat is with the endorsement of the OEA. I would be afraid that Mr. Grassbaugh would be supportive of the positions of that rabid union over the best interests of the students of Ohio. Based on the debate tonight I feel comfortable in both voting for Mrs. Ruhl and placing her yard sign in my yard, which I had for a few days pending the outcome and performance in the debate.


Here is the local newspaper's, MountVernonNews.com, account of the event.

The John Freshwater Termination Hearing, Part 1

Righting First Amendment Wrongs



The public termination hearing for John Freshwater finally began earlier this month. The public hearing was at the request of John Freshwater. Part one of the hearing was held on Thursday, October 2, 2008, and Friday, October 3, 2008. The school board presented its side of the case. School Superintendent Steve Short, over the course of the two days, spent nearly eight hours being cross examined by the attorneys of the School District and Mr. Freshwater's Attorney.

The hearing recessed until Tuesday, October 28 and should be concluded this month. Beginning on Tuesday, October 28 John Freshwater will begin to present his side of the case before the Ohio Department of Education (ODE) referee. The hearing was to have been in two parts with the second beginning in mid October, however the attorneys had a conflict in their schedules so part 2 was reset to take place beginning tomorrow and conclude this week.

John Freshwater was suspended without pay since the summer and according to an OneNewsNow.com, a national news service, October 4, 2008 report, “
John Freshwater has been working odd jobs in order to make ends meet while waiting to plead his case in an open hearing." The purpose of the hearing is to determine whether Freshwater will be able to keep his job as a science teacher at an Ohio public school.” Mr. Freshwater, a middle school science teacher refused to remove his personal bible from the top of his desk and the school district has trumped up additional charges and a case to have his teaching contract terminated. Among the charges are allegedly branding students during a science experiment, allegedly daring to question the theory of evolution in his past teaching (dating back to a time when teaching evolution was acceptable in Ohio), and daring to pray with a Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA) group, which he was serving as monitor. He is also accused of teaching religion in class.

THURSDAY OCTOBER 3, 2008

According to the testimony
reported on the Columbus Dispatch website on October 4, 2008 Steve Short, the Mount Vernon City School District Superintendent, admitted that he, too, had kept a Bible verse on the wall of his office (it was part of a picture the his son made for him) prior to the Freshwater investigation. The first day's hearing consisted of opening statements and questioning of Mr. Short.

FRIDAY, OCTOBER 4, 2008

According to an account of the questions asked of Mr. Short by the School Board’s attorney the MountVernonNews.com detailed the following. Superintendent Short was asked, “Is the Bible (on the desk) the reason (that he recommended firing Freshwater)?” he asked.

““No,” replied Short.

“He said it had to do with four main reasons: The Tesla coil mark on students’ arms; Freshwater teaching beyond the approved curriculum and bringing religion into the classroom; Freshwater overstepping his bounds as FCA monitor; and Freshwater’s refusal to remove items from his classroom when directed to do so.”


Columbus’ NBC-4
reported on its website, “Hearing referee Lee Shepherd said he would submit a written report of his findings to the school board after the hearing was complete and that the board would determine whether Freshwater should be fired.

The termination hearing will resume tomorrow, Tuesday, October 28, 2008 at 9:00 AM.

I believe that Mr. Freshwater will be fully exonerated at the conclusion of the hearing. However, the School Board will still fire him, and he will have to pursue further legal action against the School Board. They will hope that he will run out of money and determination to do that. The School Board hopes that he will just go away.

October Surmise: Obama is a Natural Born Citizen of the U.S.A. and a Qualified Candidate for the Presidency?

Show Us Your Birth Certificate! Were You Born in Kenya or Not?

To surmise means “to conclude based on only limited evidence.” To date, Barrack Hussein Obama has not produced an authentic or official birth certificate that proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that he is a naturally born citizen of the United States. Being born in the U.S.A. is one of the basic qualifications to be President. Obama's father was Kenyan and his mother was a teenager when she married Obama, Sr. He abandoned the family when Obama, Jr. was a boy. There is evidence and suspicion that his posted certificate of live birth has been falsified. There is suspicion that he was, in fact, born in Kenya in Africa.

Obama Citizenship: I . . . October Surprise . . .




Obama is under court order to produce his birth certificate. The deadline has passed. He and his lawyers have asked that the case be dismissed. We are waiting for the judges’ ruling, which hopefully will come before the election.

Barack, You're no John F. Kennedy!

Shining God’s Light on the Koran - Is it Inspired? Part 3

Sam continues his on-going series which contrasts the Judeo-Christian Bible with the Islamic Koran on a variety of topics. He aims the beam of the Biblical laser on the Koran to expose, to reveal what it really says. See his previous articles here.


Inspiration, Part 3

In comparing writings of the Holy Bble and the Koran, we must consider who is the source of inspiration and the stated facts.

THE KORANIC ACCOUNT

We have honored some prophets above others. To King David We revealed the Psalms (Surah 17:55).

Say (O Muhammad, to mankind): Who is an enemy to Gabriel! For he it is who has revealed this Koran to your heart as a guide from Allah; bringing pleasant words for the people of faith. This confirms what was revealed previously. All who are an enemy of Allah, his angels, or his apostles, or Gabriel, or Michael, will certainly find that Allah is the enemy of those who do not believe (Surah 2:97).

Those who are an enemy of Allah, and his angels, or his prophets, or of Gabriel or Michael! Allah is himself an enemy of those who do not believe (Surah 2:98).

You shall remember in Scripture the account of Mary: she withdrew by herself to a solitary place in the east away from her relatives. We sent Our spirit to her in the likeness of a full grown man. On seeing him she said: May the Allah of mercy defend me from you. If you fear Allah leave me and go your way. He said: I am only an envoy from your Lord arrived to provide you a son without any father (Surah 19:16-19).

She said: How can I bear a son when no man has touched me and I have always been chaste? He said: No problem, it is easy for Me (Surah 19:20,21a).

She conceived him, and withdrew with him to a distant palce (Surah 19:22).

This was Jesus the son of Mary. This is the whole truth which many still doubt. It is beneath the dignity of Allah to beget a son! Upon His command he only needs to say: “Be,” and it is (Surah 19:34,35).

The Ruler of the heavens and the earth, he has sired no son nor has he anyone equal to him in his domain. He has created all that there is and placed it where he desires (Surah 25:2).

The words of Allah shall never change (Suah 10:64).

COMMENTARY ON THE KORANIC ACCOUNT

According to the Koran the words of Allah do not change. Presumably, he knows everything, and his knowledge is not developing as mankind’s does. Therefore, he can get his information correct the first time it is written.

The Koran takes credit for the inspiration of the writing of the Psalms by David who was the King of Israel. The Koran claims to confirm the writings of the Holy Bible. Why then is the Holy Bible banned in Saudi Arabia?

The Koran states that it was the angel Gabriel who revealed to Muhammad what it was that he was to write in the Koran. At the very least when “We” is mentioned in the Koran it is referring to Allah and Gabriel. Since Michael is also referred to in context with Gabriel the “We” may also include the angel Michael.

“Our spirit” is in the form of a man. “Our” is plural which means more than one. “Spirit” is singular which means one. The spirit of Allah is one of the spirits. The spirit of Gabriel is one of spirits. One of the spirits is of the creator and the other is the spirit of an angel. Is it really possible for them to combine as one spirit? I do not think so. Is the status of an angel being raised to that of the Creator?

A father is an originator of something (1). The man who came to Mary was the originator of the child of Mary. He did not have a sexual relationship with Mary but he was the one who caused her to become pregnant. The Koran says he caused Mary to conceive. Conception is the union of sperm and egg. He provided the sperm. It does not matter how he provided it. Only that he did it. He only need say “Be” and it is. This makes him the father. “Beget” is to bring into being (2). He is the one who brought the child of Mary into being and it was a boy. Therefore, he begat a son.

The man is said to be both angelic and divine. Is Gabriel able to say “Be” and it is? Is Gabriel the creator or a co-creator with Allah? Allah is able to say “Be” and it is. Whose son then is the son of Mary: That of Allah or that of Gabriel? Isn’t it reasonable to say that the one who can say “Be” and it is; is the one who sired the child of Mary? Yes, it is Allah.

It is written in the Koran that Allah never begat a son. This cannot be true because he sent his spirit with that of an angel to a young woman and caused her to become pregnant. It does not matter how He made her pregnant. It only matters that he did. Therefore the Koran lies when it says that Allah did not beget a son.

First, Allah says that he did make Mary pregnant. Then he says that he did not make Mary pregnant, or any other woman for that matter. Which is it? The Koran contradicts itself. The Allah of the Koran can not be trusted to speak the truth.

THE BIBLICAL ACCOUNT

The Lord said unto my Lord, You sit at my right hand, until I make your enemies your footstool (Psalm 110:1).

And Jesus answered and said, while He taught in the temple, How say the scribes that Christ is the son of David? For David himself said by the Holy Spirit, The Lord said to my Lord, You sit on my right hand, till I make your enemies your footstool. David therefore himself called him Lord; and whence is he then his son? And the common people heard him gladly (Mark 12:35-37).

Why do the heathen rage and the people imagine a vain thing? The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against his Christ saying, Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us. He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision. Then shall he speak unto them in his wrath, and vex them in his sore displeasure. Yet have I set my King upon my holy hill of Zion. I will declare the decree: The Lord hath said unto me, You are my Son; this day have I begotten you. Ask of me, and I shall give you the heathen for your inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for your possession. You shall break them with a rod of iron; you shall dash them in pieces like a potter’s vessel. Be wise now therefore, O you kings: be instructed, you judges of the earth. Serve the Lord with fear, and rejoice with trembling. Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and you perish from the way, when his wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all they that put their trust in him (Psalm 2:1-12).

The Lord hath sworn in truth unto David; he will not turn away from it; Of the fruit of your own body I will set upon your throne (Psalms 132:11).

For the Lord hath chosen Zion; he hath desired it for his habitation. This is my rest for ever: here will I dwell; for I have desired it (Psalm 132:13,14).

There will I make the horn of David to bud: I have ordained a lamp for mine anointed. His enemies will I clothe with shame: but upon himself shall his crown flourish (132:17,18).

COMMENTARY ON THE BIBLICAL ACCOUNT

Jesus said that David’s inspiration came from the Holy Spirit. This shows the Trinity for David wrote: “The Lord said to my Lord”. This is two persons, and Jesus added the third person by saying the information David spoke and wrote was by the Holy Spirit. “The Lord” is God the Father, Yahweh in Hebrew. “My Lord” is God the Son, “Adonai” is the word for Lord in Hebrew. ‘My’ refers to David himself. God the Holy Spirit is the One providing David with the information to record.

Those who deny that God has a Son, who is Himself God, are enemies of God the Son. God the Father promises that the enemies of God the Son will be made the foot rest of God the Son, who is Jesus the Christ. Christians are the body of Christ, so one day those who do not believe that Jesus is God will be under the feet of the Christians (Ephesians 1:20-23; Colossians 1:18).

The Scribes said that Christ is the son of David. Jesus asks, “how is the son of David, his Lord?” This question they cannot answer. The key to the answer is that Christ is God and has prior existence as God before becoming the Christ, Messiah, or Anointed One. Yet, Jesus affirms this is the situation.

God’s promise to David is that as one of his descendants, the fruit of his body, He will set on David’s throne. This person is the Christ who is Jesus, God in flesh. It is God the Father who has chosen Jesus the Christ to be his King in Jerusalem, which is Zion. The kings of the earth will fight against it, but they cannot win. They are only losers. Zion is the place where God has chosen to reside while ruling the earth.

The enemies of Jesus the Christ will be covered with shame while Jesus prospers.

COMPARE AND CONTRAST THE KORANIC & BIBLICAL ACCOUNTS

The inspiration of the Koran claims to be from Allah and the angel Gabriel, while the inspiration of the Psalms as claimed by Jesus and Peter and Paul, is from the Holy Spirit (II Timothy 3:16,17; II Peter 1:20-21). Seeing that in the Koran, it declares that “We”, Allah and Gabriel also inspired the writing of Psalms. There is a discrepancy between the two texts. The question is which text is correct?

The words of Allah never change. In the Koran it is stated that Allah has no partner in his rule of the universe nor has he ever begotten a son. Psalms was written more than two millennium before the writing of the Koran. The Psalms state that God, Yahweh, does beget a Son, Adonai, and that, He, Himself (Jesus) would become a descendant of David, King of Israel.

CONCLUSION

The Koran is a change from what was written earlier. Either the words of Allah do change, or the Allah of the Koran and his angel Gabriel did not inspire the Psalms. If people were given the opportunity to read both the Holy Bible and the Koran they would conclude the Koran is a counterfeit word from God. Moslems are prevented from reading the Holy Bible on their own and reaching their own conclusions.

Rare Double Deal in Mississippi U.S. Senate Races: Roger Wicker (R) & Thad Cochran (R)

For a Conservative Congress (Senate). Part 14

This will be part of an on-going series, which will identify key races where we either need to retain strong conservatives or to elect strong conservatives. My personal feeling with being faced with two inferior candidates for President offered by our major political parties, we must turn our attention to insuring more conservative American-values oriented persons are elected to the U.S. Congress.

OFF TO THE RACES

The next races that we will highlight are for the two Mississippi U.S. Senate seats. In what USPolitics.com calls, “a rare electoral event,” both senate seats are up for election. The senate elections are usually staggered, so it is rare indeed to have a state elect both of its senators in the same year. What is the reason? Trent Lott’s resignation is the reason. He resigned at the end of 2007 and Mississippi’s Governor, Haley Barbour, appointed him as the State’s second senator replacing Lott. Lott’s term would have ended in 2010. A special election is needed to finalize that appointment.

Roger Wicker has been serving as a replacement for Lott. Wicker faces Democrat and former Governor, Ronnie Musgrove. According to a Wikipedia
entry, “There will be no special primary election for this race; if the top candidate does not get a majority of the votes, a runoff election with the top two candidates will be held on November 25, 2008.”

Senator Thad Cochran, the other Mississippi U.S. Senator, is up for re-election this year. Cochran’s opponent is former Mississippi State Representative Erik Fleming. Cochran has been serving in the senate since 1978.

I suggest that all conservatives in Mississippi and elsewhere support both of the very conservative Republican incumbents.

THE RATING

Both Senators Roger Wicker and Thad Cochran are classified by OnTheIssues.com website as being Hard-Core Conservatives. In contrast that same website classifies Senators Barack Obama, Edward Kennedy and Hillary Clinton as a Hard-Core Liberals. Think polar opposites, not melting polar icecaps!
THE REALITIES

Most pollsters consider Senator Cochran’s re-election a safe bet. There is a little less certainty with Senator’s Wicker’s re-election.

There is a good possibility that both seats will remain in the R column. It is much more important that the stay in the C for conservative column.

THE RESOURCES

To support Senators Wicker and Cochran’s candidacies, which I urge you to do in both cases, see their respective websites:

Tom Rooney (R FL 16) to Replace the Democrats’ Own Florida “Foley”?

For a Conservative Congress (U.S. House), Part 13

This will be part of an on-going series, which will identify key races where we either need to retain strong conservatives or to elect strong conservatives. My personal feeling with being faced with two inferior candidates for President offered by our major political parties, we must turn our attention to insuring more conservative American-values oriented persons are elected to the U.S. Congress.




Scandal Ridden Mahoney, Democrat, Seeks Re-Election

THE RACE

NewsBusters.com
reported, “A week ago, Rep. Tim Mahoney, the ethically compromised liberal legislator who replaced Rep. Mark Foley, admitted to adultery, but unlike Foley, is running for re-election anyway.” His wife recently filed for divorce. Double standard, hypocrisy, do the Democrats have no ethics or morals. Obviously not, like the socialists and Marxist, which many of them are, they will do and say anything to get elected. The end justifies the means. The mainstream media had a field day two years ago with Rep. Foley. He was in the news relentlessly. NewsBusters.com reports that only ABC-TV covered this important story. NBC and CBS is yet to mention it. Disgracefully, biased, shameful are all I can say.

This is one seat that the Republicans can and must pick up this year. The district is Republican, so the chances of defeating this incumbent are good. Therefore the people of Florida must do the right thing and toss this adulterer out on his liberal posterior. He should follow the example of Eliot Spitzer (New York) and Mark Dann (Ohio), Kwame Fitzpatrick (Detroit) other recently disgraced Democrats who were pressured to resign over their moral failures and indiscretions. Mahoney must love the power too much, or he must feel that the Ten Commandments do not apply to him.

THE RATING

Tom Rooney, a republican, claims to be a conservative, who says on his website that he is pro-life and pro-one man, one woman marriage. He also enumerates a number of other conservative issues on his web site. The major “problem” with Rooney is that his family has had some past ownership interest in the Pittsburgh Steelers. Being a native and follower of the Cleveland Browns this taints the man, good thing I do not live in Florida!

His opponent, the incumbent, unrepentant adulterer and tarnished Democrat, Tim Mahoney is rated by OnTheIssues.com as a “Moderate Liberal.” “Immoderate liberal” may now be a more apt description now that the his adulterous relationships have been brought to light! He supported embryonic stem cell research and voted in favor of prohibiting job discrimination based on sexual orientation, which is unnecessary because their are already laws on the books to protect Americans from discrimination.

THE REALITIES

This contest will be one to watch. Will the people of Florida accept the gross behavior of Rep. Mahoney? Or will they, like Rep. Foley, disqualify him as their representative? We will find out Tuesday, November 4th won’t we?

How Does Biden Handle Tough Questioning?

It was very really refreshing to see Orlando, Florida’s WFTV-Channel 9's Barbara West satellite interview with Democratic V.P. candidate Joe Biden last Thursday. However, it obviously ticked off the third most liberal senator in Congress. NewBusters.com reported that the Obama campaign cancelled Biden’s wife's scheduled interview with WFTV as well as all further interviews until after the election.

It seems to me that the opponents of the Democrats have been serving up high and hard ones daily by the mainstream media. The same is not the typical or truth of how the media relates to the messiah Obama or his chief prophet Biden.

.
Watch the hard hitting and heated interview on the video link here and see an example of the kinds of questions that the mainstream media SHOULD be asking the Obama-Biden team. Biden obviously was expecting typical Obama friendly softball type questioning. Instead, he got high hard fast balls thrown up and in the strike zone by this no nonsense Florida reporter. Congratulations Ms. West for doing your job. You did Floridians and Americans a real service!

Obama: Could Be Second Coming of J.C.

Or worse!

Louis Farrakhan has again referred to Barack Obama as the ‘messiah.’

“And many people now say that they, too, believe that he is the second coming of J.C., not Jesus Christ, but the second coming of of another J.C., Jimmy Carter.”

COMMENTARY
.
It is hard to imagine a presidency worse than the failed Jimmy Carter administration, but you can be assured that Barack Hussein Obama would be if he is elected President of the United States on November 4th. Jimmy Carter turned out to be a seething liberal appeaser. Barack Obama would take it one step further and would be a seething socialist/Marxist appeaser. America would lose its sovereignty to the United Nations among numerous individual freedoms. there would be more taxes, more spending, more government, more abortions, same-sex marriages and privileged class status for homosexual, lesbians, bisexuals, transgendered, cross dressers and pedophiles . . .

Separating God from the State


The Columbus (Ohio) Dispatch newspaper runs a regular feature called the Hot Issue, where they ask their readers a question of interest and ask them to answer the question and comment on their answer. The following question was asked yesterday (Thursday.)

The Hot Issue:

Do you think Nativity scenes should be allowed on government property?

My Response:

Absolutely! Why not? The concept of “Separation of Church and State” is unconstitutional and was contrived. That concept is just like the heinious Roe v. Wade ruling, which mistakenly created a “right” for a woman to kill her baby.

This nation was created as a Christian nation on Judeo-Christian principles and those principles are interwoven into the fabric of our government and its founding documents. To deny this fact is to agree with American historical revisionists.

David Macko for Congress

No, this is not a picture of Ben Stein. This is David Macko, candidate for Congress in Ohio’s 14th district. Macko is a Russian Orthodox Christian, and is (or was, personal communication) the chairman of the Ohio chapter of Libertarians for Life. I don’t know why he is not listed among the candidates on either the national LP site or the Ohio LP site. But here he is listed as Libertarian. I wonder why.

He supports the Sanctity of Life Act . “Abortion is against Christian principles and L/libertarian principles properly understood…I believe that abortion is murder but punishment for that crime should be administered by the states,he says. “Use of embryonic stem cells is the moral equivalent of cannibalism,” he says.

Macko believes that 14th amendment was improperly ratified because southern states were not included in the voting even though they had been readmitted to union, their votes for 13th amendment were counted, and Abraham Lincoln maintained that their secession was not legitimate in the first place. Although this amendment grants the right to “life, liberty, and property” and “equal protection under the law”, Macko believes that this amendment is heavy-handed and points out that this is the very amendment which the Supreme Court used to justify their authority to impose Roe v Wade. He argues that repealing it would be an admission that it is legitimate and passing a law through Congress to invalidate the 14th (and all ruling based on it) would set a bad precedent that would open the door for legitimate amendments to be repealed without the necessary approval of 2/3 of the state legislatures. The solution is to resubmit legislation to ratify the 14th. Quite interesting, wouldn’t you say?

http://www.mackoforcongress.com/webpage/7

He believes that real marriage is between a man and a woman, but would “vote to repeal all federal laws which discriminate against homosexuals, except where it would compromise our national defense,” and would not deny homosexuals the right to ordinary, voluntary contracts. He would not include sexual orientation or gender identity in federal anti-discrimination laws.

He supports the Liberty Amendment which would sell all unconstitutionally held federal businesses and lands and end the personal income, gift and death taxes. He would also get rid of the Federal Reserve and replace it with a sound, commodity-based monetary system. He also supports the RTBA (Read the Bills Act) as well as an amendment to the Constitution which would state: “Neither Congress nor the states shall hinder, impede or otherwise limit commerce among the states.”

I support … a two to three percent tariff as the only tax which is necessary for the legitimate functions of the federal government, to protect the lives, liberty and property of citizens from foreigners, operate federal courts and make sure that federal elections are honest,” he says. He opposes the U.S. involvement in WTO, the FTAA, NAFTA, the North American Union and “other underhanded deals”. He supports the Bricker Amendment to end anti-sovereignty trade deals and other ill-advised treaties. He supports ending all foreign aid as it is both costly and unconstitutional.

Macko supports the limited, sound use of our military. “We should bring all of our troops home safely now from Iraq, Afghanistan, Germany, Japan, South Korea and everywhere else in the world and put them on the southern border where they are needed,” he says. He goes on to say, “We invaded Iraq in less than 90 days. We can safely get out likewise…Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Rice, Gates and the rest of them should be tried as war criminals for lying us into the Iraq war, murdering hundreds of thousands, bankrupting this country and making us hated.

I oppose the USA PATRIOT Act, the Military Commissions Act, the John Warner ‘Defense’ Act, the Real ID Act and all of the police state measures which the Bush and also the Clinton administrations scared the Congress into supporting,” he says.

Macko opposes the draft, the Selective Service System, and any other forms of compulsive "national service" by reason of the Thirteenth Amendment.

He believes that all federal campaign laws are a violation of the Constitution and supports instant run off voting.

On crime, he says, “Drug laws, prostitution laws, gun laws and all other victimless ‘crime’ laws should be repealed and prisons should be used for criminals.” He would abolish the ATF and FDA. He opposes the National Minimum Age Drinking Act.

He favors the elimination of the Department of Education and supports vouchers, but says they should be phased out with the income tax. Tax credits are better than vouchers.

He opposes the funding of Child Services. (He calls them kidnappers.) He opposes the Violence Against Women Acts of 1994 and 2005.

On energy, he says that global warming is a “nonmanmade natural cycle” and that we have a 200 year supply of oil reserves on Gull Island, Alaska.

He believes that the right to bear arms is a God-given right and is “the last barrier preventing the establishment of a police state”.

Macko believes that healthcare should not be tied to either employment or government and that this is the real cause of rising healthcare costs. He would eliminate both Medicare and Medicaid.If the American people allow the government to take over health care completely, you will be regulated from morning until night in your eating habits and other behavior, just like livestock.” He believes that Social Security should be phased out gradually.

He believes in the principle of jury nullification. This concept, while almost entirely unheard of in modern America, is an essential feature of the Republic and has made us what we are today. "The jury has a right to judge both the law as well as the fact in controversy." - John Jay, the first Chief Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court 1789.

A vote for Macko is a vote for sound libertarian principles. Click here to contribute.

4 Reasons to Vote NO on Ohio Issue 2

Four Reasons to Vote NO on Ohio Issue 2:

1. It would cost Ohio taxpayers $400 million.

2. It would allow the State of Ohio to acquire more land, which would cost taxpayers even more in the future to keep up. State ownership of land is not needed in Ohio.

3. It is not right to raise taxes to pay for environmental clean up. If either privately owned or state owned land has lost value due to the actions of another party, then THEY should be required to pay just compensation, not the taxpayer!

4. Restoring private property rights is the most environmentally sound policy because private owners respect their own land more than government bureaucrats. Revitalization is only worth it if someone is willing to spend their own money on it.

Vote NO on issue 2.

Also vote NO on issue 1 (here is why) and YES and issue 3 (here is why). Reasons to vote no on issues 5 and 6 have already been discussed on this blog (here and here).

Barb Davis White for Congress


Barb Davis White is a Ron Paul-endorsed Republican running to unseat Keith Ellison, the (self-proclaimed) Muslim congressman, in Minnesota’s 5th congressional district. Click here to read hubbub about the issue of being sworn in with a Qur’an instead of the Bible in the last congressional election cycle.

The Candidate

White is pro-life, supports local control of schools, supports secure borders, and believes that the “global warming” issue has lead to costly over-regulation of industry.

She believes that we should withdrawal from Iraq as soon they have a stable government.

http://www.barbdaviswhiteforcongress.com/index.shtml

The Opposition

Keith Ellison believes that abortions should always be legal.

Keith Ellison voted for ENDA and sexual orientation-based hate crimes legislation. He supports same-sex marriage.

He not only supports the No Child Left Behind, but actually wants to throw away even more of our hard-earned tax dollars into that waste pit.

He favors a universal healthcare program and thinks we can spend our way to prosperity on every other issue!

Conclusion

We need Barb Davis White in congress! Click here to contribute.

The 2008 Election - A Matter of Life & Death

Hear Their Cry
.
Cartoon by Chuck Asay as found on Townhall.com, 10/22/08

Indeed, this election is a matter of life and death. More babies will die under an Obama presidency. Life will be further cheapened for the collective good.

There are important ballot issues in South Dakota and Colorado. The one in Colorado defines life as beginning at conception. The South Dakota ballot issue bans abortion.


Retain Congresswoman Michele (Bachman, R-MN-6), She Ain’t No Michelle (Obama)

For a Conservative Congress Part 12

This will be part of an on-going series, which will identify key races where we either need to retain strong conservatives or to elect strong conservatives. My personal feeling with being faced with two inferior candidates for President offered by our major political parties, we must turn our attention to insuring more conservative American-values oriented persons are elected to the U.S. Congress.


THE RACE

The next race that we will highlight is for U.S. Representative in Minnesota. Representative Michele Bachman, who is the incumbent Republican representative serving the 6th district, is being challenged by Democrat Elwyn Tinklenberg.

Up until recently, Rep. Bachmann was in a strong position to keep her seat. However, following a recent interview with the ultra liberal and Democrat water boy, Chris Matthews, she has been relentlessly attacked for what she said on MSNBC’s Hardcore Liberal with Chris Matthews cable TV show. The Democrats seized the baton from the rascal Matthews and have used the strong positions Bachmann took on that show to denigrate her and to spin her words into an effective fund raising opportunity for the Democratic candidate.

I heard Bachmann on talk show host Mark Levin’s radio program on Monday night expressing concern about how her words were twisted and now used to raise funds to jeopardize her seat in Congress. She is a key conservative voice in the 110th Congress. She is one of the few Representatives with the guts to stand on her principles and stand up to the deplorable Democratic leadership.

I suggest that all conservatives in Minnesota’s Sixth District join me in supporting Representative Michele Bachmann, because her re-election is vital to the conservative cause. We need more Michele Bachmanns and not one less!

THE RATING

Rep. Bachmann is rated as a populist leaning conservative
at OnTheIssues.com. Her opponent is a liberal, but not of the Pelosi Obama Biden kind.


THE REALITIES

One blogger, Suite101, writes concerning the situation in Minnesota:

“Due to the outrage over Bachmann's statements, many feel that the Congresswoman needs to be defeated on November 4th. Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, condemned Bachmann's statements, as did other politicians, Democrat and Republican alike. The [homosexual/lesbian] community has been extremely vocal in its opposition of Bachmann for years due to her campaign to ban [same-sex] marriage constitutionally in Minnesota.


Tinklenberg just isn't liberal enough for some voters. One resident in Minnesota's 6th District says he'll vote for Tinklenberg because Bachmann is "an embrassment"; however, he disagrees with Tinklenberg's stance on abortion.”

Because Bachmann dared to speak the truth about Barack Obama and about many of his Democratic cousins, comrades in harm, she has been vilified and targeted for electoral expulsion. Let’s hope and pray that the people of the Sixth District will have more sense than to turn away a real leader in an otherwise leaderless, inept and woeful body, the Democratic “lead” U.S. House of Representatives.

Here is a statement from Rep. Bachmann, which I received in an email today, in response to all of the media frenzy over her truth telling about Obama:

“All this because I dared to say that the formative relationships that Barack Obama had are relevant to figuring out what kinds of policies he might bring to the White House. Because I said that Barack Obama's close relationships with people like Bill Ayers and Jeremiah Wright and others who hold far-out-of-the-mainstream views might have had some influence on the policy positions that Barack Obama holds."


Bachmann only told the truth. Something the mainstream media (MSM) is uncomfortable with because their man, their candidate, the messiah, must be protected and presented only in a positive light.

Two Weeks (2006)


“In this bittersweet comedy, four adult siblings gather at their dying mother's house in North Carolina for what they expect to be a quick, last goodbye. Instead, they find themselves trapped-- together -- for two weeks.” - - - The Internet Movie Database (IMDb) Review

Providentially, as it turns out, I rented the movie, Two Weeks, this past weekend and concluded watching it tonight. Ironically, if not prophetically, it is now two weeks, exactly, before Tuesday, November 4, 2008 election. We could, also, be watching escalation of the demise, the last throes of a dying nation, America. It is not too outlandish to predict or foresee that if Senator Barack Obama is elected President this fall and Nancy “the most powerful woman in the world” Pelosi, and “Senator Surrender” Harry Reid assume a triumvirate of power along with a left leaning judiciary, America, as the Founding Fathers knew it, the vestige of greatness is gone. America would be doomed.

That is how bleak and foreboding an Obama “victory” would be. America today is almost anesthetized by her apathy and prevalent attitude of narcissist pleasure seeking. We are ripe for a socialist takeover. Khrushchev once said that he would bury American, fellow blogger Sam, said the other day that Obama may be Khrushchev’s undertaker.

Sally Fields does an excellent job portraying a dying woman in the movie. Her children gather together with her as she is expected to die relatively quickly. She lingers on for two week and finally succumbs to her fatal cancerous condition. The children appear helpless in watching their mother die. They don’t know how to relate to each other. Most of the siblings are married and have their own lives and families. This is an opportunity for the four to be together again.

Much like the four children of the dying woman in the move, we Americans are today watching America die. Death may be looming in early November. The courts have usurped power and unconstitutionally make laws instead of interpreting them. God has been expelled from the very schools and universities that He and His followers, our Founding Fathers, helped to establish. His laws and principles are violated by our courts and by individuals. Deviant homosexuality has been declared to be good, acceptable and is being foisted upon children in several states as normal, natural, even healthy moral alternative lifestyles. No fault divorce has also cheapened the sacred, God-ordained institution of marriage. The Declaration of Independence, which promises life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, is being violated by almost unlimited and unfettered abortions, nearly 50 million murdered children since 1973.

An Obama presidency will seal the coffin. It will open wide the door, and even wider our borders to Islamists and socialist ideologues to transform this nation into a totalitarian state where our individual liberties and freedoms must be turned in for a measure of security from a bureaucratic big brother government – demanding control over every area of our lives in exchange for a bowlful of porridge.

The four siblings in the movie are crushed by the death of their mother. One of the last wishes of their mother is that she urged them to stay together, to not loose touch with each other.

Perhaps an Obama presidency will serve to unite the people of America to see that socialism and communism are incompatible with the American and Christian values and virtues upon which this once great nation was founded and uniquely and remarkably blessed by the Creator. After all, we still have each other.
.
RATING
.
I would rate the move a *** 1/2 out of ***** mostly because of the total godless secular worldview portrayed by the movie toward life and death. Though lessons can be learned both for individual lives coping with death as well as on a national level in coming to grips with a dying nation, which, sorry to say, America is. We must individually repent and turn back to God if we are Christians. If we are not Christians we now must turn to God. Great social upheaval and trials await us during an Obama Administration, for however long it will last.
.
HOPE
.
For as dark and forlorn things may look with the election of either Obama or McCain, our God is the real great hope for America. He was the hope of our Founders, He can be our hope again. The motto for the state of Ohio is "With God all things are possible." God offers real change - changing individual hearts - and offers real hope for life here on earth and for life for all eternity. Our hope is in Him and not in Obama or even McCain. Our only hope is in Him.
Remember to vote NObama this NOvember!!!
