By that, one must assume Romney considers as "zany" a willingness to at least consider approaches to issues outside of the box and observing where our time fits with the overall flow of history.
To Romney, it seems how things are going now are, to use vocabulary fitting with his own patterns of speech, "just peachy".
But one supposes there really isn't anyway of ascertaining such since Romney also informed us that we really didn't need an historian either.
And just think, he could have likely gotten by with it if it weren't for those pesky kids.
Thought I would toss that in if candidates are going to start sounding like they are doing voiceovers for Scooby-do episodes from the mid 70's
Often, it is insisted that one must use the phraseology "Happy Holidays" in order to avoid excluding New Year's Day. However, don't the advertisements exclaiming "Now that the Holidays are over" prove that such linguistic manipulation is just at attempt to avoid saying Christmas?

Is this somehow a tragedy more befitting of youngsters residing in suburban tract housing?

Regarding the "giving back to the COMMUNITY" drivel. The average person does that everyday they go to work, pay their taxes, occasionally slip something into the collection plate at church, and doesn't rampage in the streets like this Occupy Wallstreet & Air Jordan mobs.

Another truism nearly as classic insists that the only thing we learn from history is that we don't learn anything from history.
A prime example of these working in tandem could be found on the cover of a late 2011 edition of the New Yorker Magazine. Depicted violating the U.S. southern border were migrants adorned not in sombreros but rather in what would be considered traditional Thanksgiving pilgrim garb.
Such doodling, though admittedly humorous, displays a number of questionable assumptions.
For starters, the cartoon assumes that the illegal aliens of today are the equivalent of the Pilgrim settlers.
In addressing this issue, emphasis must be placed upon ILLEGAL.
The migrants coming here today are doing so in violation of the agreed upon governing authorities of the territorial United States.
The English Separatists voyaging here aboard the Mayflower committed no such transgression. In fact, the pioneers making that trek were so eager to see law and order established that among their first acts was to promulgate the Mayflower Compact. They are not to blame if the Indians did not have an as developed sense of property as we have in our own Western tradition or that there was not as much of a need to enforce borders back then as there is today.
The naive will likely respond but, if our Founders were all immigrants, who are we to forbid entrance to those that come here after us?
If that is the case, should those making such a case (especially if they are White) be forced to not only provide shelter to any minority squatter that crawls in through an open window but also cook daily meals and provide laundered sheets for the uninvited house guests? If not, how is amnesty and assorted social welfare benefits going to those that have not earned them any different?
Those fawning all over the border violators of today will gush incessantly how moral and family oriented these blatant criminals are just like the Pilgrim settlers coming here to start a new life. Even the likes of alleged conservatives such as Dr. Dobson of Focus on the Family have at times been duped by this as evidenced by the time he got atop his Colorado high horse and proceeded to castigate Pat Buchanan regarding the syndicated columnist's classic "The Death Of The West".
However, just how moral are these new arrivals when one of their foremost weekend activities is bawdy drunkenness that often results in public urination? It's doubtful many Pilgrims blared music until 3 AM given the solemnity and austerity for which the rigorous Protestants of that era were renowned.
Often leftists like to harp on the decline that befell the American Indians once the historical paths of these people groups intersected with those of the Europeans. Then let's draw on some lessons from that episode as to why the United States of today must curtail the numbers crossing over the nation's frontiers.
If the migrants of today are to be construed through the prism that they are the equivalent of the Pilgrim "foreparnets" (no need to set off radical feminists among fanatic grammarians), it must be pointed out that their famed work ethic wasn't the only thing the early Puritans brought with them. They also brought a number of diseases against which the population already residing here had little immunity.
Sadly, little can be done to prevent the suffering and death from the epidemics that swept across the New World centuries ago. But with the germ theory of disease that has developed since that time, shouldn't we honor those passing in that tragedy by clamping down on our own borders by only granting admittance to those from beyond our borders that adhere to the most rigorous of health standards?
Don't think this is a valid concern? Then why are not only diseases once thought conquered or at least under control such as tuberculosis but even bedbugs as well making a resurgence?
Nation-states exist primarily for the benefit of those already living within the boundaries of a particular delineated territory that have a proper legal basis for being there. Once a culture loses its wherewithal to defend this particular principle, it won't be long until it is swept into the dung heap of history.

Perhaps those attempting to guilt trip over what kinds of Christmas cards people send would prefer not to be sent any Christmas cards at all.
I know some no doubt consider me some kind of moral reprobate since I don't go along with every decree in "Churchianity" just because someone in a clerical collar or holds an established ecclesiastical position hands it down.
But frankly I'd rather receive a card with an artist's tasteful rendition of the Christ Child on it than one where a dog insinuates he's about to cock his leg and piss all over the living room tree.
Don't like my language? Don't get after me.
The cards I send are considerably more sedate.
Take it up with those that are held up as exemplary church leaders who send such cards.
Want to declare me an apostate for telling it like it is, go right ahead.
Usually, I don't have a problem with that kind of humor.
However, I do when there is a hypocrisy involved that sneers down it's nose at those whose faith is not considered as rigorous or straightlaced while mailing something that can't be described as anything other than scatological.
The same crowd regularly ranting about women wearing pants is now in an uproar that women's boxing is being planned for the Olympics. But It's not like Feminists are grabbing women off the street and forcing them to fight one another. So why is it more appropriate for a man to knock the teeth and snot of another man but not for a woman to do it to another woman?

If Brad House is going to castigate those Christians that prefer solitude, shouldn't it be pointed out that the church he's an associate minister at, Mars Hill, is so borderline cultic that it can't stand the notion of its planted churches being operationally independent. Rather, these outlying satellites function under the ecclesiological paradigm of "multi-site". That's where you drive in to watch the pastor on some jumbotron like he is Big Brother or Max Headroom. Wasn't the People's Temple multi-site there too for awhile?

Faith in Christ is indeed what saves. However, that does not mean that the intellect is not a route to faith. So why is it denigrated more homiletically than other approaches such as overwhelming existential crisis or intense emotional need? So if it's all faith and nothing else, perhaps the JW's and the Mormons should circle around the parking lot and pick off the dimwitted Fundies reveling in their ignorance as the step out the church house door.

Though not always cognizant of the epic spiritual and philosophical struggle taking place all around them, Americans can be a remarkably stubborn and independent lot. As such, a number sympathetic to the process of communalization have realized that they might be more successful in accomplishing their goals through a subdued gradualism rather than through sudden revolutionary upheaval.
The first of the remembrances of the waning year subverted by manipulative social engineers is Thanksgiving. This holiday is despised for a number of common liberal reasons.
For starters, it is argued that Thanksgiving is racist because of the hostilities that eventually erupted between Americans of European origins and the American Indians. However, such criticism fails to recognize that, at the time of the first Thanksgiving Feast, these distinct groups were at accord with one another over the blessings shared amidst hardships and struggle.
Frankly, if you have a problem over the concept of Thanksgiving, you have a serious attitude problem. No one is saying that at points that the Indians weren't screwed over. Yet it must be remembered that some of them gave as good as they got in terms of inflicting violence upon innocent Whites not responsible for crafting or implementing policy.
So if you can't take a few moments to express gratitude for what you do have in this country as a result of the values set in motion there at the beginning even if they weren't adhered to in full at every step along the way, you are yourself harboring a degree of animosity bordering on racism.
The next and probably deeper reason as to why Thanksgiving is really despised despite all the lofty platitudes regarding honoring indigenous cultures and the like is that the day expresses gratitude towards God. In this era of postmodern enlightenment, such homage is to be directed more towards terrestrial sources, the COMMUNITY being foremost among them.
Usually when given the opportunity in a public forum such as the popular press to provide words of encouragement and understanding, those holding positions as professional clergy worthy of their hirer tend to draw focus to what God has done for us, how we have fallen short of the glory of God, and how He still loves us anyway with restoration available for those placing themselves under His mercy. Interestingly, pastors of Emergent Church inclinations would rather go along with the flow rather than prevent the nation's downward slide into tyranny and desolation.
Writing in the November 2011 edition of the Hyattsville Life & Times, pastor of the town's First Baptist Church Todd Thomason asserts that the thing he is grateful for this Thanksgiving season is not so much his God, his freedom, or even his family Chesterton is credited with saying that one should not take a fence down until you know why it was put up. Sometimes the best way to maintain amicable relations is to limit one's interactions with those whose values are diametrically opposed to one's own.
Rev. Thomason, on the other hand, advocates such a compulsory and contrived degree of togetherness that one ought to willingly surrender those convictions of the heart one holds most dear. For usually in those kinds of situations where the parties involved hold to conflicting perspectives, it is the party holding to the higher standard that is forced to adopt the more lax principle.
For example, in terms of religion, if this is not to be one of the categories by which we determine those from the within from those from the without, it is usually the ones that believe that faith alone in Jesus Christ without reliance upon good works is the only means of eternal salvation and not those that believe all paths are equally valid so long as our good works outweigh our evil deeds that are forced to compromise in the name of ecumenical unity. Likewise in regards to sexual orientation, when we supposedly come together setting aside our differences, in the postmodern context that does not mean the promiscuous elevate their behavior by henceforward living lives of repentant abstinence, covenantal monogamy, or at least keep their mouths shut regarding what kinky proclivities they might be into. Rather, it ends up that those espousing a traditional morality are the ones not only shamed into silence but forced to smile and applaud in affirmation under threat of punitive denunciation.
Until recently, the disputes regarding Thanksgiving have for the most part been of a more subdued or subtle nature. Some of the really great battles of the culture war have instead broken out over Christmas.
The key to winning any conflict is controlling how that conflict is expressed in terms of language and conceptualization. Those that despise Christmas and the Christ that the celebration was originally intended to honor have gone to considerable lengths to minimize the mention of the day's very name.
Occasionally this is accomplished under threat of some kind of punishment on the part of the state. More often, this is achieved by attempting to shame these words out of common usage by crafting elaborate reasons as to why the values given lip service by petty despots such diversity, inclusion, and hyperpluralism are to be extolled at the expense of those preferred by the average person.
For example, the Hyattsville Reporter insert of the November 2011 edition of the Hyattsville Life & Times lists a number of events to be held by the municipality throughout the month of December such as the "Annual Holiday Tree Lighting", breakfast with Santa, and a memorial toy drive. At no point in the announcement is the reader informed as to why these events are being held this time of year rather than in the middle of the summer as Christmas is never mentioned.
In the past, it was claimed in connection with this very issue that the phraseology "holiday" has to be utilized since not everyone celebrates Christmas. If so, then why is the word invoked in the column immediately to the left?
The heading reads none other than "We're Dreaming Of A Green Christmas". However, what follows does not so much detail what certain individuals plan to do themselves but rather what they hope to guilt trip everybody else into.
For example, in regards to gifts, it is literally insinuated "You shouldn't have." Instead of traditional gifts, the responsible consumer rather gives donations to charities or purchases locally made items. In other words, things nobody really wants.
As in the case of the blurb about domestic artificial and locally grown trees, the reason behind locally produced gift items has nothing to do with bolstering the U.S. economy. Rather, it is about reducing the distance for ecological reasons the miles goods and supplies are transported. But unless an artist or craftsman forges, smelts, or mixes their own supplies, does it really matter if the assorted petrochemicals are assembled down the street or across the country since they will still have to travel the exact same distance?
In "The Lion, The Witch & The Wardrobe", the tyranny imposed by the White Witch upon Narnia is categorized as it being always winter but never Christmas. It seems now the next stage of villainy has developed where the White Witches of our own time and realm instead wish to use the trappings of this celebration as a tactic in the attempt to implement their assorted agendas.

What does it matter if the Walmart family has more wealth than the bottom 30% put together if the family has acquired that wealth providing goods and services most desire or find satisfactory? If not for this corporation, wouldn't the lives of these lower tiers of the socioeconomic ladder be even more impoverished?

An associate informed me that the forms one signs to go into a junk yard such as Crazy Ray's are not simply to absolve the property owner of liability. They are also handed over to the government for the purposes of keeping track of who has visited the junk yard. What is even more troubling and offensive is that authorities are more interested in who has been there rather than who has taken what parts.

If Obama really cared about spreading the wealth and ensuring that everyone paid their fair share, he should have insisted those coughing up $35,000 a plate to attend a New York fundraiser instead donate that financial outlay towards servicing the national debt. Those attending this function are the very same elites insinuating you are not patriotic enough unless you submit gleefully to higher tax rates.
Ron Paul has published a cookbook. Given his position in favor of legalizing hardcore narcotics, I'd be cautious on any recipes for brownies or calling for mushrooms. Given the soft place in his heart for Islamic extremists, it is doubtful any recipes were included for ham or pork chops.

Those already jacked out of shape of the possibility of folks skipping church this upcoming Christmas morning need to take a chill pill. Is it that they are enthusiastic for the House of the Lord or can't stand the prospect of people making a decision different than their own in regards to something that will ultimately be inconsequential. There are 52 Sunday's a year. A missed handful really aren't going to matter all that much.

The hosts insisted the decision was correct because a workplace policy was violated.
So will slavishly adhering to workplace policy miraculously prevent brigands from taking the lives of those that abide by managerial decrees above all else?
Better yet, should a similar incident occur at the radio station, given the choice would these broadcast personalities rather ne'er-do-wells take their innocent lives or be saved by someone competent to use ballistics technology to neutralize the threat?

If these beatniks don't any other time think an unborn baby is alive anyway, why should we care if a pregnant woman is sprayed over any other individual?
The reprimanded woman claims she is only two months pregnant.
Other than her claims, is their any verifiable proof other than her word that she is with child?
And if she is part of this rabble, that's not very trustworthy to begin with.
Interesting that a fanatic Reconstructionist that says a true Christian can never support torture and celebrates the Puritan legal/penal code says very little about the punishments provided for in that system such as the placing in the stocks of a man that kissed his wife publicly after having been away at sea for 3 years. If one is going to condemn waterboarding, doesn't one also have to criticize the dunking stool of that era in question? Interesting those advocating such think women that gossip should be treated more harshly than Islamists piloting jetliners into skyscrapers and other attacks of mass destruction.

A public pool in Columbia, Maryland has set aside hours for women only in order to placate Islamic patrons. If Muslims don't like mixed swimming, they should either stay home or construct a pool of their own at a private facility. What if someone didn't want to get in the water with Black people? Public facilities funded by all taxpayers or residents should not go out of their way to brownnose philosophical foolishness.

You are little better than a fornicating reprobate if you have delayed marriage.
This likely means that, as a youth, Cunningham was likely the greatest whoremonger among his peer group.
Usually, those having lived the most debauched lives prior to finding salvation in Christ are the ones that end up imposing legalistic demands found nowhere in the pages of Scripture.
For example, in the interview Cunningham equates living independently with the "doctrine of demons".
Instead this pastor admits to pressuring youth into getting married between their junior and senior years of college.
But when those heeding his counsel don't have enough to pay their bills, is he going to bail them out of eviction and a ruined credit score?
If churches are going to increasingly come to the conclusion that singles are less than welcome, than neither should our tithe dollars be in the collection plate.
Balanced theologians have suggested that where the Bible is silent, that perhaps it would be best if we followed a similar course.
As God's complete revelation, His word teaches that, whether married or single, life is a mix of blessings and curses.
Perhaps the American family would not be in the mess it is in today if meddlers did not pry into matters best left to individual decision rather than to the preferences of clergy racked by guilt from their own questionable life choices.

A Yahoo headline asks why Penn State students lashed out violently. The article goes on with fancy psychological gobbledygoop. But it all boils down to that these pissants have too much time on their hands and not enough to do in terms of school work or in working to pay for their education as most are likely on some kind of government handout.

No one is forcing the family into the spotlight.
If not for making a media circus of their fecundity, could they afford so many progeny?
Hypernatalists will remark none of this is the concern of outsiders since the Duggers provide for themselves.
If so, perhaps leaders of the homeschool movement such as Kevin Swanson and sympathetic theologians such as Albert Mohler should also keep their noses out of the affairs of others and stop insisting that you don't really love children if you have fewer than five or are not married by 22 years of age.
Often those sympathetic to high birthrates applaud migrants both legal and criminal for families of multiple children.
However, if entitlement handouts were cut to these constituencies, the fertility of these demographics would fall more in line with that of Americans that actually earn their way in life.
Children can indeed be a blessing from the Lord.

However, Geisler does not leave readers dangling by requiring them to embrace Theism simply for the lack of another viable alternative. Instead, Geisler provides an argument more positive in its orientation incorporating analytical and evidential components.
The argument is stated as such: "(1) Some things undeniably exist. (2) My nonexistence is possible. (3) Whatever has the possibility not to exist is currently caused to exist by another. (4) There cannot be an infinite regress of current causes of existence. (5) Therefore, a first uncaused cause of my current existence exists. (6) This uncaused cause must be infinite, unchanging, all powerful, all knowing, and all perfect. (7) This infinitely perfect being is called "God". (8) Therefore, God exists. (9) This God who exists is identical to the God described in the Christian Scriptures. (10) Therefore, the God described in the Bible exists.
Borrowing from Descartes' conclusion "cogito ergo sum", Geisler posits that, in order to deny that one exists, one must exist in order to do so. From reflections upon the nature of our own existence, one concludes that our nonexistence is possible. For even though we do not like to admit it, there was a time when the world was at least able to hobble along crippled without us in it.
We know that whatever has the possibility of not existing is currently caused to exist by another. Each of us resulted from the physical union of the genetic material of our respective parents who in turn came from the union of their parents, etc, etc. However, physical laws such as those of thermodynamics point out that this chain must have a cause that does not need to be caused. To accomplish this, the uncaused cause would need to be infinite, unchanging, all-powerful, all-knowing, and all perfect. Anything less would be unable to be this uncaused cause.
It is appropriate to call this cause "God" since it possesses the attributes traditionally assigned to divinity. Therefore, God exists.
Geisler further argues that the God affirmed by this proof is the God described in the Bible because there can only be one infinitely perfect and changeless eternal being. However, at this point in the apologetic task Geisler is careful to point out that, "This does not mean that everything the Bible claims that this God said or did, he actually said or did. Whether or not what the Bible says about this God is another question. What we conclude here is ... the God described in the Bible exists; second, whatever the Bible claims for this God that is not inconsistent with his nature, it is possible that he did indeed do and say (250)."
Having reached this conceptual plateau, the apologist can rest for just a moment before he must begin the sectarian and denominational wrangling to make the case that the Christian path into fellowship with God is indeed the correct one.

The accuser's name is pronounced "Buy-A-Lick".
Some headlines just write themselves.
If false detention is defined as consisting of unlawful restraint against the will of an individual's personal liberty or freedom of locomotion and the Occupy DC protests were perpetrating this against vehicles of a perceived economic status such as luxury automobiles and SUV's, shouldn't this human excrement be charged with a hate crime? This act is not all that different than inhibiting the free movement of a targeted ethnic minority.

Foremost among these is wallowing himself in a number of opulent luxuries he believes you as a mere commoner ought to curtail and possibly even be denied.
Often, when those in the press pool, who have to be leery when steeping off a curb afterwards, point out the incongruities of a Chief Executive that called for shared sacrifice while the First Family enjoys pleasures the rest of us can only dream about, we are told that the American people would not begrudge the President a vacation.
But what if we do?
Barack Obama, not the American people, was the one lamenting that we eat what we want, drive around in SUV’s, and keep our homes climate controlled at 70 degrees.
Barack Obama, not the American people, is the one with a deep sense of elation each time fuel costs rise. After all, he was the one that told us that, under his system of cap and trade, utility bills would necessarily skyrocket anyway.
As part of the fleet of presidential vehicles, the Secret Service unveiled to the public two modified passenger buses.
These alterations included security enhancements such as armor plating and state of the art electronics. It does not take an engineering degree to realize that neither of these contributed to the mileage and fuel economy of the vehicles in a positive manner.
So while Obama will ride around in comfort and safety, you (on the other hand) if you dare have the nerve to step outside the house since you aren’t really suppose to go anywhere these days, with all the propaganda extolling the wonders of locally grown produce and social planners corralling people into developments of higher population density, are to ride around in rolling death traps that provide little protection whatsoever.
Around the time of the debut of these behemoth additions to the presidential motorcade, Obama announced that fuel efficiency standards were being raised to 54 miles per gallon.
A true leader does not require of those he is charged with overseeing things he is not willing to require of himself.
Barack Obama might hold the highest elected office in the United States. However, he does not do so as a true leader one would gladly follow irrespective of whether or not he was the one that had all the firepower and lawyers at his disposal.

In this era of political correctness where Westerns particularly of a Northern European extraction are to be blamed for every disappointment known to man, it is now we Americans that are not only obligated to go out of our way to familiarize ourselves with the backwards peculiarities of the new arrivals but to also degrade our own cultural standards.
A flier for a Hispanic Heritage Month celebration sponsored by a suburban Maryland municipal agency admonishes, "Join us in honoring the traditions and heritage of our Hispanic/Latino neighbors...You will be introduced to the songs and rhythms of Latin America in an exciting interactive performance for the entire family."
No thank you. Many have already had this experience, irrespective of whether they wanted it or not, at two or three o'clock in the morning thanks to rowdy neighbors that civic authorities are extremely reluctant to tell to tune it down for fear of appearing ethnically insensitive but whom would just as easily crack down on you with SWAT raids and tear gas for removing a tree from your own property if failing to make the proper procedural oblations on bended knee before assorted eco-bureaucracies.
Though few possess the cahonies to say it, it is doubtful that many actual Americans still even remain in the area where this concert is being held. Most of those that will likely attend will be Hispanic to begin with.
Basically scarce public money is being expended in what amounts to little more than Hispanics wallowing in their Hispanicness.
In the present day, tolerancemongers would never permit government funds going to finance an activity to lavish praise upon White people over how wonderful White people are by asking minorities to fawn all over White people for simply being White.
If there is tax money burning a hole in the public pocket that just has to be spent on Hispanics, perhaps it should done in such a way that acclimates this population to our bizarre American ways.
The average American wasn't consulted as to how many migrants both legal and illegal would be permitted entrance into the country because immigration policy is crafted to meet the needs of elites rather than the good of the nation as a whole.
Perhaps high on that list of things to be taught ought to be not playing music so loud at 3 AM that it rocks windows half of a block away.

And does this include the position enjoyed by the Vatican as well?
Or is this yet another example of the "don't do as I do, do as I say" mentality that prevails among globalist elites?
Before calling for the redistribution of global wealth, shouldn't an institution calling for such divest itself of its ostentatious finery that, despite having a certain beauty, wasn't necessarily part of the founder's original business plan when operating in the field?
Before lecturing the rest of us how we need a goodly portion of what we have taken away in the name of the downtrodden, how about telling the downtrodden to exercise a little control over themselves by refraining from having so many children that they can't afford?
Isn't that the greater act of selfishness, going through with one's own carnal enjoyment despite knowing the that the life of the resultant progeny will be likely destitution?
Shouldn't one of the world's foremost moral authorities instead be calling for more independent creation of wealth rather than the centralized bureaucratic redistribution of such resources?
The Vatican insists such reforms are required in order to make the world economy more responsive to democracy.
So what is going to protect Vatican assets when the enemies of all forms of Christianity vote to confiscate that institution's vast and historically varied holdings?
For the sake of sound doctrine and human liberty, patriotic and Tea Party conservatives should be no more reluctant to speak out against the Vatican's call for the redistribution of wealth than they would be of any other politician or institution proposing a similar policy that has historically resulted in the infringement of basic civil liberties and even the significant shedding of innocent blood.

A legalistic Facebook evangelist has condemned a church for selling pumpkins. Who was it, though, that created the pumpkin? Does the Bible not say that God created all foods to be enjoyed with the thanksgiving of those that decide to partake of them? I guess some of these preachers know more than God as to what time of year nature ought to make the pumpkin ready for harvest. If one sees a pumpkin an automatically assumes some kind of innate evil to it, doesn't that speak more to the evil in the heart of the one making that assumption rather than those attempting to spread this bit of organic autumnal cheer?
On the cover of the 11/11 issue of the Humanist, the winner of the 2011 Humanist of the Year Award urges readers to study philosophy "Because it teaches you to question everything." But are Humanists as supportive of such wide-ranging, unfettered inquiry when such intellectual scrutiny exposes the flimsy basis of militant atheism that turns an increasing number in that particular discipline to some kind of traditional theism?

Before calling for the redistribution of global wealth, shouldn't an institution calling for such divest itself of its ostentatious finery that, despite having a certain beauty, wasn't necessarily part of the founder's original business plan when operating in the field?
Before lecturing the rest of us how we need a goodly portion of what we have taken away in the name of the downtrodden, how about telling the downtrodden to exercise a little control over themselves by refraining from having so many children that they can't afford? Isn't that the greater act of selfishness?
I can tell little difference in what the Muslims are calling for and the penalties that the Christian Reconstructionists would implement under their idealized regime. At least the Muslims are bold enough to declare openly their policy agenda. Point these kinds of things out to a Reconstructionist and they threaten to report you to Facebook admins or accuse you of "despising God's justice".

As part of a comprehensive sex education program, New York students will be required to learn about sado-masochism. Chinese students learn to program computer viruses for the purposes of crippling the technological infrastructure of their enemies. Since in the future we will likely be chained and whipped, I guess this curriculum is to teach us to enjoy it.

Tax break proposed for companies that hire convicts. So not only will these deadbeats be exempt from the jury duty inflicted upon you every three to five years, but now they will likely be granted gainful employment ahead of you. Those of us without criminal records can only hope that they will rob their employers blind.
A proposed program will grant visas to foreigners investing $500,000 in residential real estate. What stipulations will be put in place to protect this scheme from degenerating into the next phase of the Mexican flop house where 3/4's of a single village rather than a single family moves into the common American domicile with the new residents leaning drunk against the fences of their neighbors while playing music loudly well past 1 am on Saturday nights with police reluctant to do anything about it?

Qaddaffi is dead. I was going to make a joke about starting a wager pool as to how soon Christian Reconstructionists unable to fully comprehend the threat posed by radical Islam would start lamenting the demise of this human turd, but some started doing so before I was even able to post this status update.

On the 6/26/11 edition of Fox News Sunday, host Chris Wallace inquired if Representative Michelle Bachman was a flake. As justification for this line of interrogation, Wallace pointed out an instance where Bachman insinuated that certain members of Congress were anti-American.
So apparently in the eyes of those considering Bachman a flake on the grounds it is now allegedly a sign of instability to expose those facts that a number of elites would rather gloss over in the hopes that the American people won’t find out about such personalities and instances.
For example, Cynthia McKinney cannot be described in any other way than anti-American. Not only did this Georgia representative appear on Libyan state television. She also praised the Qaddaffi regime.
People of good conscience can disagree as to the propriety and prudence of U.S. and NATO intervention in this north African uprising. However, what cannot be denied is that old Muammar is one of the great scumbags of the 20th and 21st centuries.
For though Al Qaeda and Qaddaffi’s regime have come to blows in this rebellion, it must be remembered that Qaddaffi was, for a lack of a better term, a superstar of world terrorism decades before any of us ever heard of Bin Laden.
If McKinney wants to position herself as a feminist, she must be asked why would she even give this regime the time of day, much less speak favorably of it. It was reported during one point of the conflict that Libyan forces were using rape as a weapon of terror and intimidation.
It could be argued that, despite her ability to grab an occasional headline such as when she tussled with Capitol Hill police when she insisted regulations regarding members of Congress showing identification didn’t apply to her, McKinney’s subversive tendencies do not necessarily epitomize the foremost personalities of America’s national legislative body.
As one of America’s most prominent families and one of the Senate’s longest serving members, Ted Kennedy was such a part of that institution that he was referred to as the lion of the world’s greatest deliberative body because of his forcefulness in speaking out on behalf of Democratic causes. Though one can be a Democrat and a loyal American (despite this combination becoming increasingly elusive), it could be questioned exactly where Ted Kennedy’s ultimate political loyalties were to be found.
For example, one cannot necessarily cast suspicion by default upon the Massachusetts Senator simply for opposing many of the policies of President Ronald Reagan. After all, a hallmark of a free society is the opportunity to express one’s disagreement with ruling authorities without fear of reprisal.
It is a shame, though, that the youngest Kennedy brother felt the propriety of befriending a regime that epitomized the denial of basic human liberty, namely the Soviet Union.
Those still not convinced of this line of argumentation might observe that, unlike Michelle Bachman, none of these figures are currently in contention for the presidential nomination of their respective party. After all, Ted Kennedy quite literally drove his off a bridge when he fled the scene of an accident in Chappaquiddick, leaving Mary Jo Kopechne to drown. As airheaded as the press might portray her to be, it is doubtful anything that absentminded is to be found in Mrs. Bachman's track record.
To many that would oppose someone like Michelle Bachman winning the Republican nomination and possibly even the presidency of the United States, Barack Obama represents the pinnacle of what this country has to offer in terms of political leadership. However, if one is able to get over the giddiness that the President is half Black to examine him for what he really is as a human being, one cannot avoid the conclusion that Obama is actually flakier than Michelle Bachman.
As a number of her detractors will insist that Michelle Bachman does not have enough experience to be President of the United States. What was it other than emerging from his mother’s birth canal as a baby of mixed pigmentation did Barack Obama do to deserve to have the reigns of the highest elected office in the land handed over to him?
Both Bachman and Obama went on professionally to become attorneys. However, Bachman used her skills to administer her family’s farm and business, adding to the productivity of the United States. Barack Obama used these kinds of skills to become a community organizer in the Alinskyite tradition, meaning he led the downtrodden not into lives of self-sufficiency but rather into dependency on the public welfare roles all for the purposes of overburdening the system in the hopes that it would totter ever closer to the brink of violent revolutionary upheaval as detailed by the Cloward & Piven Hypothesis
Both Bachman and Obama served terms in their respective state legislatures. It was in such an environment that Obama would develop the decisive leadership style he is known for by voting “present” on a variety of issues so he would not be required to take a position one way or the other. One might not that this could be construed as a violation of the injunction in the Gospels of letting your yes be yes and your nay be nay.
The wisdom of the ages holds that you are known by the company that you keep. You can determine a pretty good measure of a man by examining those he surrounds himself with especially in terms of those that he considers advisors.
For example, former White House Director Of Communications Anita Dunn publicly admitted that Chairman Mao was her favorite political philosopher. What all is admirable about one of history’s greatest mass murders?
The affinity of this administration for the most homicidal brands of Communism did not end with that one incident. A Mao ornament was hung from the White House Christmas tree.
Some will laugh this all off. However, would these same fans of Obama be as of a good humor of a presidential underling lauded the political insights of Adolf Hitler or if an Adolf Hitler ornament was spotted dangling from a White House Christmas tree? If anything, wouldn’t a Mao ornament be even more vile since his numbers surpassed the nightmarish atrocities of the Nazi regime, or, since his victims were Chinese rather than predominantly Jewish, these actions weren’t somehow quite as bad?
Granted, somewhere along life’s path we all list among our acquaintances a number of eccentrics and scoundrels. I no doubt fill that role for a number of people. However, for Obama, those closest to him make Dick Tracey’s Rogue’s Gallery look like the Smurf picnic roster in terms of their overall contempt for human liberty.
For example, regulatory advisor Cass Sustein believes those promoting what the government categorizes broadly as "conspiracy theories" should have their freedom of speech curtailed. Sustein also believes that it is the role of the government to implement policies that nudge citizens into certain behaviors. For example, if the government does not want people to rely so much on personal automobiles, increased gasoline taxes might be levied or roads constructed designed in such a way to increase traffic congestion.
Science advisor John Holdren believes sterilants should be put into the public drinking water in order to decrease fertility rates. However, Holdren is not the only Obama minion wanting to do away with what Ebenezer Scrooge dismissed as the “excess population” before this famed miser's Yuletide change of heart. Obama Healthcare Advisor Ezekiel Emanuel thinks that those below or above a certain age range should be denied medical treatment. Basically put a bullet in granny's head.
Obama's Secretary of Energy believes you should be permitted to color your roof any color you want so long as it is white. And speaking of colors, Obama's FCC appointment Mark Lloyd believes White folks should be denied FCC licenses. Obama's State Department Legal Advisor Harol Koh believes that Sharia law should be consulted as a source for American jurisprudence.
It could be argued that flake is a designation in the eye of the beholder. Come election day, voters will have to decide what perspective they want steering the national helm.
Do they want someone thinking that at worst you are a worthless lump to be disposed of by the government as bureaucrats or at best a witless clod needing government control in every facet of your existence. Or do they prefer someone that believes that you are better at optimizing these kinds of decisions in your own life on your own.
There is no shame in the survival instinct. It was created by God. The young aren't suppose to want to die yet. While they should be prepared by telling them to make a decision for Christ, the young should not be condemned for desiring the joys of this life the elderly have since grown weary of. It is only the heathen that love death. It may be an insufficient imagination rather than a sign of religious devotion to go around saying how much one isn't afraid of suffering & the process of death. Usually such people have never seen a breathing tube shoved down the throat of a loved one.

On 10/11/11, I predicted that the Emergent Church crowd would eventually come out insisting it was our Christian obligation to provide nutritional provisions to the freeloaders of the Occupy Wall Street insurgency. On October 14th, the Sojourner's Magazine email alert urged recipients to donate food to these shiftless deadbeats. But not only that, it is also our duty to learn from this rampaging mob. You know, the same thing this propaganda rag most fit for lining birdcages urges in regards to homicidal Communists and jihadist Muslims.
Occupy Wall Street ringleaders should be held responsible for ambulance passengers whose health has been compromised as a result of their terrorist activities. Yes, if you block the streets for political purposes, it should be deemed an act of terrorism. Could you block in a hostile manner the Presidential motorcade without profound legal consequences?
Apparently the word "cult" is the equivalent of a profanity in hypertolerant America. Since it is also the linguistic root of the word "culture" as well, no wonder America is being overrun by Third Worlders with their being very little backbone to speak out against it.

It is one thing to explain in a primary why religion played a role in prompting you to select one candidate over another. On the other hand, it is something else if you live in a state where your vote actually counts to say that you aren’t going to vote for one of the viable candidates at all because neither contenders espouses your professed religious preference. We are not yet at the point where the only alternatives are between a Muslim and a cannibalistic Satanist.
But it is exactly because of these kinds of conspiracies why you need to take out a number of these closet pork eaters from time to time.
To maintain our relative safety, we have to promote the assumption that, if you mess with us, you will be met with such overwhelming force that it is not worth the effort.
That is why Toby Keith's "The Angry American" is one of the greatest contemporary country songs.
Granted, there is only one path of salvation. However, I thought true Reformed theology held that certain amounts of Common Grace were available to all men. I've posted some wild things in my time, but equating a vote for a Mormon (who isn't even suppose to drink coffee) with a Satanist (who kills cats, drinks blood, and commits necrophilia) stretches things beyond credibility.

The National Park Service will allow the Beatnik Insurgents to lay siege to a Washington DC park for four months. Eventually, we'll be hearing from apostates such as Jim Wallis, Brian McLaren and the Emergent Church crowd how it is our "Christian" obligation to lavish nutritional provisions upon these freeloaders.

Bill O'Reilly ridiculed parents that curtailed their children's outdoor meanderings for fear of child molesters. Yet the public has never seen a picture of O'Reilly's wife or progeny. So apparently like Obama, the Fox News broadcaster doesn't think the steps you believe must be taken to optimize the survival of your family are necessary but that you must instead put them in danger in order to promote the agendas of assorted social planners while they cower behind gated communities and perimeter checkpoints.
On the show, the story is depicted in such a way that whatever vampires do must be allowed and that it is the Christians opposed to them that are in the wrong even when the lead character Mitchell slaughters an entire subway car of people just because some girlfriend of his does him wrong.
Will be interesting to see if this novel application of the First Amendment is continued in the future as Vampirism moves beyond the literary realm into becoming an alternative religious movement or form of spirituality.

Are those crying a river over the elimination of Al Awlaki because he was never convicted in a court of law themselves willing to die as this judicial procedure is conducted? Or is this yet another obligation to be imposed upon those Americans not happening to rank among the “Elect” however one might decide to define that particular term.
However, Protestants should watch carefully.
Firstly, they should begin right away developing a series of their own along the same lines of similar production value.
Secondly, they should stand ready to make a major fuss if PBS is open to one of the branches of Western Christianity but not the other.
We are each guilty of doing so in out own way. However, I wonder if Calvinists have ever stopped to reflect how they have possibly pushed people further away from God through their call to volitional and intellectual passivity in regards to the claims of salvation and even more importantly by depicting God as an arbitrary thug hardly anyone in their right mind would want to love anyway. It is one thing for a Holy God to provide sinners with only one path to eternal life with Him. However, this soteriology posits a deity so callous that He deliberately creates individuals for the sole purpose of tossing into Hell and then blame them for it.
An informative episode of "Decoded" on The History Channel about the possibility of there being no gold in Fort Knox. Would have been even more interesting if videotape revealed if the security patrolling the grounds was Chinese. Best to try and watch this installment before it mysteriously disappears for good like the FEMA detention camp episode of Jesse Ventura's Conspiracy Theory.

For example, Hank Williams Jr. --- a number of whose own songs revel proudly in bawdy behavior such as boozing and smoking --- has been removed from the opening sequence of Monday Night Football for comparing Obama to Hitler.
This reprisal will certainly go a long way in laying to rest the old canard about Jews controlling the media.
In a number of ways, Obama is like Hitler.
Both men would have liked to have seen the nation of Israel removed from history and not above forming alliances with fanatic Muslims in order to do it.
Both men undermined the value of the individual in the name of the COMMUNITY.
Both of these men exerted the coercive power of government to curb free expression. Need one remind of the Administration's pressure applied against the Ford Motor Company to pull an ad referencing the auto bailout stimulus?
It's just that Hitler was more decisive in implementing his agenda.
Regarding his remarks, Williams assures he has always respected the office of the President.
And what if he didn't?
Apart from not threatening the Commander and Chief, there is virtually no legal obligation to harbor any specific sentiment regarding the office.
Did Whoopi Goldberg respect the Presidency when she used the "F-word" in regards to Ronald Reagan?
Did Bill Ayers exhibit fitting homage towards the Executive Branch when he bombed the Pentagon?
Yet today both of these figures are counted among Obama's sociopolitical allies, with Obama actually launching a campaign for political office in the domicile of the one actually given over to physical violence and the destruction of public property.
It will be no doubt be pointed out that, as a business, the NFL is not obligated to respect the First Amendment rights of those under its contract or employ and technically that is correct.
However, it must be remembered that this blurring of governmental and industrial interests is also among the first steps towards the Fascism that apparently no one is suppose to talk about.

Hyper-Calvinist Reconstructionist in apoplexy over the elimination of Al Alwaki because of his citizenship are crying crocodile tears. They are not telling you that under their theocracy far more would be put to death for far less serious offenses committed by this terrorist ringleader. In their ecclesiastical regime, you are not granted any rights if you do not belong to sanctioned state churches.
According to the 10/10/11 edition of Newsweek, in China a number of eateries have opened glamorizing the Cultural Revolution. It would probably be best to stay away from such dining establishments. It has been claimed cannibalism went on during that period of violent upheaval.

Obama goons have threatened the Ford Motor Company over a commercial mentioning the auto bailout. Ford was requested to censor the advertisement because Il Duce's minions assumed the spot "denigrated" the stimulus program and cast aspersions on the Obama presidency. For supposedly being among the brightest people to ever walk the earth, these statist bureaucrats certainly have the hardest time comprehending the simplest of phrases such the right to free speech shall not be infringed.
Articles in the International Journal Of Humor Research with titles such as "Humor In The Collectivist Arab Middle East" certainly don't sound funny. And I thought I was a dullard to be around. I guess the old adage that those who can, do and those who can't, teach can now be extended. It now includes that those who can't teach publish journal articles only about five people in the entire world will read.

However, eventually prenatal care will be denied to any woman that does not measure up to the physiological standard extolled by the New World Order.
Ultimately any woman over a certain size reproducing will be charged with child abuse.

Countless congregations no doubt heard from the hyperpious among their number how they were disappointed the quake didn't result in total destruction and that any not so eager for it all to end aren't even worthy of the chewing gum stuck under the pew.
In response to the earthquake, it has been admonished that it id God and not government that saves you. But should you need to be pulled from the rubble, is it the direct hand of God doing so or, in the vast majority of instances, is it more likely to be a policeman, firefighter, members of the National Guard or a group of average concerned citizens? Taking this mindset to its natural conclusion, is it therefore wrong to express gratitude toward parents if they do something good for you? Is it wrong to verbalize one's love to one's spouse if language can only be used in such an exclusivist and univocal manner? Furthermore, if we are to wait on the direct divine intervention of God to determine what happens to us in such calamitous upheavals, does that mean we should not seek medical attention during times of sickness or to even prepare a meal to stave off hunger?
If earthquakes are to be viewed as God’s judgment, is one sinning if one takes steps to save one’s life during such an event? Would hyper legalists such as Christian Reconstructionists and Dominionists advocating the perspective that natural disasters are to be understood as divine retribution insist that criminal charges be filed against those their elaborate spy network discover took steps to protect themselves?
Just because your family and spouse mean less to you than promoting your image as an uberChristian is not sufficient grounds for insinuating a lack of faith on the part of those that left work after the quake to check on loved ones and property.
A number of talk radio hosts and hyperpioitted to take.
It's easy, as in the case of these various radio personalities such as Rush Limbaugh, to sneer down your nose at those that may have overreacted at the prospect of losing their homes when you no doubt own several fortified compounds scattered across the United States. Are those outraged over the nation's alleged lack of courage themselves willing to die to prove that Americans are not wimps?
Do those losing their lives and property think the calls for emergency preparation were overkill? Are these individuals any less dead because predictions regarding the intensity of Irene didn't pan out?
Do talk show hosts encased in padded studios out of the elements and the hyper pious criticizing "excessive" hurricane preparation intend to pay the expenses incurred in the next disaster by those persuaded by such orators that living up to some arbitrary affectation of machismo is more important than survival? Of course, some of the ostentatiously pious probably salivate at the prospect of a high casualty count in order to validate their rants regarding judgment and such.
Assorted foreigners are accusing Americans of self-absorption for paying attention to the coverage of Hurricane Irene rather than the uprising in Libya. Isn’t it an even greater act of self-absorption to fly into a homicidal rampage when someone pokes fun at your religion?
A number of posts on the Washington Post website are lamenting the fact that consumers have stockpiled their pantries with "too much" food following Hurricane Irene. For starters, who are they to determine how much food is too much for your pantry? Can't the victuals just as well sit in your cupboard as on the store shelf? What these elitists really oppose is the notion that a food supply of your own makes you less dependent on whatever agenda they may be attempting to implement.
Technically, isn't it a form of borderline Humanism to assume that the earthquake and hurricane were primarily a response to mankind's behavior. God may have simply been focusing on natural processes, phenomena, and cycles with humans just being in the area when these events occur as a result of where we ourselves have decided to live.
It is interesting how those arguing that the Book of Revelation is not to be taken literally are among the most insistent that the hurricane and earthquake were God's judgment when He has not handed down any specific decree as to why these particular events took place. At least those crazed Dispensationalists can point to a text that definitively tells them which earthquakes in history are to be viewed as retributive in nature.
God sets the weather into motion. He's bright enough to realize why you might not have been in church last week. Church authorities might have the say so whether or not there will be services. However, you are the one that has the final veto as to what transpires from your house to the church. No need to harang a congregation if most thought it more prudent to remain home following a significant storm.
I don't see how it logically follows that if you did not go to church last week because you did not know what the conditions were from your house to the church that you somehow don't care about learning about God. Church will still be there the following week. I thought the strength of Protestantism was suppose to be the individual following one's own conscience in regards to unsettled matters.
If I will be declared a heretic for thinking that the quake was not necessarily God's judgment, so be it. They can add it as another charge at my Inquisitional hearing.

Perhaps that limit might be a bit harsh given the state of the economy where often people find themselves unemployed for extended periods of time through no fault of their own.
However, given America's pending financial ruination, these very same agitators should be as outraged about the growing trend of permitting aide recipients to apply their benefit payments to restaurant tabs.
Since many of those on public assistance are unemployed, are you going to tell me that such individuals don't have to time to prepare victuals within their own domiciles?
Or, rather is such an inability yet another symptom of lazy burro syndrome?
If ramen noodles and frozen fish sticks or chicken nuggets are good enough for those working to provide nutritional assistance, why aren't these foods sufficient enough for those receiving public benefits?
The government might have a minimal public health concern in seeing that citizens do not starve to death.
However, the argument cannot be made that there is a compelling state interest in going to extraordinary means to see that your taste buds are titillated in a culinary fashion.

Jimmy Hoffa, Jr. says in regards to conservatives "Let's take out these sons of bitches." Didn't someone say something similar to taking out his father? I don't apologize for writing that questionable word this time as it is not my quote. What if he had called either of the Obamas this?

Some holding to this perspective even contend that only confirmed Christians should be allowed to run for public office and if you vote for someone that isn’t, even if none are running, your soul could very well be in danger of eternal damnation.
Yet there isn't a single Republican candidate that hasn't assented to at least a belief in God.
What is not often deliberately spelled out is that, if a candidate does not agree with this particular subset of the broader Evangelical spectrum nearly 100% on what in Christian thought are categorized as secondary issues, one is not considered to be a Christian at all in the eyes of this perspective’s adherents.
For example, it is not enough for a conservative presidential hopeful to pledge to stand against gay marriage.
Rather, to these fanatics, one is branded an apostate if one believes Old Testament injunctions to put homosexuals to death only applied within the context of ancient Israel and were set aside by Christ Himself when the Lord intervened at the stoning of the adulterous woman.
It must be asked, though it is doubtful they will even answer and even more likely to threaten to report you to Facebook administrators when you raise concerns about these kinds of omissions in their professed ideology, just who in a Rushdoonyian regime will decide whose belief is sincere and pure enough to be granted permission to seek elected office?
The Founding Fathers intended religion in general and Christianity in particular to exert a profound influence over American culture.
However, when the faith’s institutionalized forms end up determining who may enjoy the rights and benefits of citizenship, it has become a very pillar of the kind of tyranny that it was hoped such devotion and piety would serve as a bulwark against in the first place.

Any other time, Leftists assure us that at best accuracy in antiquarian pursuits isn't all that important and at worst an imposition of Whites upon the world's more backwards cultures.
This is rather planting the seeds to downplay efforts to curtail rats, which PETA assure us are just as important of human children.
One can see this in regards as to how certain policies such as the prohibition of specific pesticides have rejuvenated the bed beg menace.
Eventually, one will not be allowed to refer to this episode of history as Black since one cannot retain any sinister connotations to that particular hue and cannot look at this tragedy negatively since to elites, so long as they do ranked among the victims, such mass curtailments of the excess population are to actually be seen as a positive thing.

Atheism is the worldview that believes that God does not exist. Those embracing this perspective tend to do so over both objective and existential reasons.
Those claiming to embrace Atheism for objective reasons often concentrate their attacks on the more scientific approaches to the existence of God such as the cosmological argument. The cosmological argument for the existence of God holds that all contingent things must have a cause and that this cause is at the minimum Aristotle’s Uncaused Cause and preferably the God of the Christian faith as expounded by Aquinas when he adapted these propositions for Christian usage. Atheists raise their hands and say hold on a moment to what they see as presumptuous conclusions.
From the Christian perspective, since God exists beyond what we perceive as time, He is sufficient or necessary to jumpstart the universe and get the temporal ball rolling. However, the Atheist has no metaphysical problem with an infinite chain of causality. Yet the laws of thermodynamics might dictate otherwise as these fundamental principles of physics hold that there is only a finite amount of energy available within a closed system.
So even though the Atheist may not have an intellectual objection to a material universe that is infinitely old, such an assumption smashes eventually against the hard wall of reality. However, seldom has that ever stopped anyone adamant about adhering to their favored delusions no matter what the evidence might say.
The next set of arguments for Atheism against belief in God center around a set of moral objections. All must confess these have crossed our minds at low points in each of our lives.
The most objective of these centers around the nature of goodness and God's relationship to it. This argument was developed by Bertrand Russell (218).
The moral disproof for God states that good must result because either God decrees it or He does not. If good is good simply because God says it is and no one can argue against Him since He is the biggest guy on the cosmic block, good is not really good since God has willed it so arbitrarily. However, if God declares something good because of its own inherent nature or compliance with a standard beyond Himself, doesn't that mean that the standard rather than God is ultimate? Thus, at best, God ends up being demoted to the status of Plato's less than omnipotent demiurge.
Geisler counters, though, that this is really putting the ethical cart before the theistic horse. Geisler writes, "Rather than flowing from God's arbitrary will, the moral law may be seen as rooted in God's unchangeably good and loving nature, then the apparent dilemma is resolved (226).” Thus, good is something God is rather than something God decides or does. This brings to mind verses such as John 8:58 where God proclaims “Before Abraham was, I am.”
Other moral objections to the existence of God are a bit less ethereal and considerably more visceral and marked by the pain those leveling them have experienced or witnessed living here in an obviously fallen world. One such objection raised by Albert Camus in The Plague uses the backdrop of an epidemic to make the point that theism is inherently anti-humanitarian. The story posits the dichotomy that, if one assists the suffering, one is siding against God by interfering with the work of His judgment, and if one wants to be in His will and not stand in His way, one is therefore opposed to human well being (221).
Other related objections to God over the problem of evil dismiss His existence all together. A number of Atheists deny the existence of God on the grounds that, because people often suffer disproportionately to what they have done wrong, an all powerful and all good God does not exist. It is argued a God possessing these attributes would not allow evil. But because evil is rampant, that is proof that either God is not all powerful and cannot do anything about evil or that He is all powerful but does not do anything about the evil in the world because He is not good enough to care.
Though it is not always a comfort to someone that has befallen an overwhelming tragedy such as the murder of a loved one, the existence of evil does not by default disprove the existence of God. It does, however, toss the apologetic ball into the theist's court to provide a plausible reason as to why an all-powerful and all-good God would allow suffering to exist.
Known as "theodicy", these explanations attempt to reconcile the simultaneous existence of both God and evil. It is at this point that the theist must counter claim that the evil in the world is solvable or redeemable. The Christian especially can point out that God has indeed done something about the evil by sending His only begotten Son into the world to do something about this tragedy in the most personable of ways.
If the Atheist presses this objection too vigorously, the wily apologist ought to turn the argument back on his unbelieving compatriot. To even make the claim that God does not exist, because the world is not as good as we think it would be if He really did, is actually an indirect argument that He really does.
For to argue that things are not good enough is to assume some kind of standard exists beyond the earthly fray we find ourselves in. If this material universe was all there ever was, the highest good we could ever know is what we see around us and we’d be unable to criticize anything as the “is” automatically becomes the “ought” in such a context.
Yet there is a deep dissatisfaction that compels most human souls onward towards a better world. Romans 2:14-15 says, “...when Gentiles, who do not have the law, do by nature things required by the law, they are a law for themselves even though they do not have the law, since they show that the requirements of the law are written on their hearts..."
Secondly, Atheists claiming disbelief in God because, in their view, He has not done enough to stop or prevent suffering in the world often want to have things both ways. These theophobes not only deny God over the imperfections they see in the world but then hypothesize that, if God existed, man would not be free because human freedom would be, as Geisler puts it, "circumscribed by his divine determination (231)."
However, it is because God loves us so much and respects us as individuals that in the vast majority of instances He does not directly interfere with most actions but rather permits their outcome to propel the world onward to His ultimate plan for all of His creation. Geisler writes, "If love is persuasive but never coercive, then allowing men to freely determine their own destiny would seem to be the loving way to make them (231)."
Unfortunately, some are in such a state of rebellion against God that they take this animus out on others. Foremost among such deeds would no doubt rank murder.
Some would respond that, if God really loved the innocent, He would intervene to prevent this crime. However, as C.S. Lewis hypothesizes in The Problem Of Pain, for our own benefit God has created a world that operates in the vast majority of instances by a series of repeatable and verifiable principles.
For example, according to this moral "steady-state theory", I am able to pick up a knife to either slice a steak or slit my neighbor's throat for the purposes of providing man with a rational world where we will not go mad. Faced with such, the Christian must embrace Romans 8:28 as a comfort in a world that often does not seem fair to our finite minds.

Won't be long until the hyperlegalists heaping condemnation upon Bachmann for hypothetically allowing an atheist into her cabinet will be accusing her of witchcraft. In comparison to these kinds of Christians, I think I'll take a few political chances with Ayn Randian style atheists.

Also, notice how, when this "respected" public intellectual suggests this, he is applauded as a first rate mind.
But if Jesse Ventura or Alex Jones brought this up, they would be denounced as laughingstocks.

If the Tea Party is at fault for the financial downgrade for calling attention to the debt crisis, does that mean NOW or even the women reporting the crimes to police are at fault for domestic violence in America? So should the real villains of history be those that expose infamous atrocities rather than commit them? If the preservation of the status quo is the highest good, shouldn't we instead have Bull Connor Day in the middle of January or herald the bus driver that told Rosa Parks to get to the back of the bus?
According to home school activist Kevin Swanson, what is particularly offensive about True Grit was that the protagonist did not run like a mindless zombie to have her every decision given the OK by her pastor and that in the end scene she never got married. In the eyes radical homeschoolers, one's Christianity is not as valid if you do not marry and reproduce like a rabbit stoned on Viagra.

Unless they are the father of the baby, why should employers be required to pick up the tab beyond standard sick leave if you decide to procreate?
If Megyn Kelly really made her baby a top priority as she insists in claiming that a quarter of a year is supposedly essential to facilitate bonding between mother and child, perhaps she should resign her correspondent position aIl together in order to be a stay-at-home mom.
It's not like she's the type to have married a low-paid working slob whose crack hangs out when he bends over and couldn't afford to pursue a calling as a domestic engineer.
Though he backed down when confronted, Mike Gallagher is to be commended for suggesting that such long term maternity leave might be a racket.
Most are too afraid that they won't be getting sex anymore or labeled with domestic assault allegations for even daring to speak critically on the matter.

In other words, the plight of a studious White lad trying to look after his widowed Aunt just isn't as exciting as it use to be.
As leftist as Marvel Comics is becoming, in their mind it would probably be considered speciesist now for humanity to deny Galactus the opportunity to consume the Earth the next time he gets hungry.
Those opposed to the change in Spider-Man's ethnic background will be denounced as racist.
However, aren't those making the change the one's wallowing in ethnicity since they are the ones saying that a White wall-crawler isn't good enough in light of supposed advances in diversity though it is probably a safe bet to assume that the famed Marvel Bullpen is still predominately non-minority in terms of those weaving these illustrated adventures.
Would the very same tolerancemongers excited regarding the creative possibilities that a non-White Spider-Man opens up be as enthusiastic regarding a non-Black Fat Albert?

If MacDonald's intends to decrease the serving of fries and increase the serving of fruit or vegetables in Happy Meals, are they really happy meals anymore? This ought to be borderline false advertising. It is claimed this adjustment to the menu has been made in response to the demands of parents. Or is this change more out of fear of the termagant Frau Obama? If parents are really behind it, it is likely those annoying liberal ones that stuffed their faces with whatever they pleased as youngsters but demand of their own progeny a level of asceticism similar to that of a desert hermit.

The act of violence must remain the primary focus regarding the Oslo shooting tragedy. But isn’t it creepy that a political party is running a youth camp? Are the same tolerancemongers opposed to Promisekeepers rallies and the Answers In Genesis creation science museum going to speak out against such closed recreational associations and environments?
If wrong 4 women 2 take measures 2 lessen labor pain cuz of the curse imposed in Gen 3 upon women, then is it sinful 4 a man 2 b employed in any occupations other than physical labor in general & agriculture in specific according 2 that very same passage? Or as often occurs in many Fundamentalist churches do we emphasize those verses making the life of women more toilsome & gloss over those inconviencing the men.

Exposure to the beam emitted by such a device can result in temporary blindness, thus theoretically resulting in a major air catastrophe if a flight crew were unexpectedly incapacitated.
In a sense, such a regulation is all good and called for.
However, one can't but help ask the question how the perpetrators of such malfeasance can be identified at such a distance.
One account categorized the proposed penalty as civil rather than criminal in nature.
As such, it should be pointed out that the threshold to impose such are often lower and occasionally do not afford those they are leveled against with the traditional procedural protections of the judicial system.
In light of the way certain regulations regarding drug possession are implemented, these enforcement operations could end up being as much about raising revenue and seizing desired property as it is about making the skies a friendlier place to fly.
For example, under certain instances of civil penalties and forfeiture, those ultimately cleared of any criminal wrong doing in regards to the drug offenses leveled against them do not necessarily have their property returned to them despite never having been convicted as a part of due process.
Often assorted agencies end up retaining the seized objects and parcels or require those such possessions should rightly revert back to to go through additional bureaucratic procedures that consume both time and resources. This for the purpose of pressuring the individual to relent to the seizure of their property and to further enrich the lawyers for whom the regulatory behemoth was ultimately designed to benefit.
The reasoning is that such property could potentially be used in a future crime. And in the case of an automobile seized from the owner despite the fact that it was being driven by someone else at the time of a contraband interdiction, the standard reply goes something like, "Well, you should have been more careful as to whom you let borrow your car so we are going to auction it off now anyway ."
Thus, will fines for the shining of laser pointers into jetliner cockpits be issued against the person actually aiming the device or rather the title holder of the land from which the beam originated?
Eventually, if an area has a disproportionate number of laser pointer incidents or even the potential for a disproportionate number of laser pointer incidents, the government will step in to preemptively snatch the property in question. What they then decide to do with the disputed parcel may have nothing whatsoever to do with enhancing air travel safety but more about rewarding contributors in real estate development.
Vigilance against the terrorist menace out to destroy the American way of life is essential. However, perhaps even more imperative is keeping an eye on those that would use this threat to undermine life, liberty, and property.

The Communist sympathizers at Sojourners magazine in an act of capitalism are selling a "Friend Of An Immigrant" t-shirts. How about a "Friend Of America" shirt specifically intended for foreigners to let people know that the United States is their highest national loyalty and that they aren't here for the public to pick up the tab for them?

It will likely help you feel a bit warmer though, that we haven't heard of the last of wiener in connection to the federal government.
The Traditional Value Coalition has uncovered tax money going to a study determining how penis size in gays influences whether they played the part of the pencil or that of the sharpener, if you get my meaning.

If part of the mission of the Jet Propulsion Laboratory is to explore theories as to how the universe developed but enacts retribution upon scientists suggesting Intelligent Design, shouldn't that mission statement be changed to reflect that it is instead an enforcer of doctrinal orthodoxy?
Chris Plante of WMAL made an astute observation. If pension payments for the assorted elderly of varied occupation status and wages for regular government employees are to be halted should the debt limit not be raised in time, will the delay in the transfer of payments also be applied to the Obama advisors making six figure salaries?

The forum will in part discuss the merging of man and machine for the purposes of indefinitely extending the human lifespan.
No doubt listening to Al Gore drone on and on will definitely make it feel like an eternity has elapsed.
Apparently, overcrowding isn't the pending calamity he often makes it out to be. That is unless of course, his friends in the New World Order are planning a culling of the human herd.
Other than a profound hatred of God and a contempt for those that believe in an omnipotent creator, what qualifications does Bill Maher posses to speak as an authority figure on such an ethically complex subject?
The fool has said in his heart that there is no God.
How else does it explain that an individual can belittle the prospect of Heaven in one breath and then grasp at straws in the hopes of delaying the inevitable by either hooking oneself up to a ghastly array of machines or somehow electrochemically uploading the memories we have accumulated our few brief years upon the earth as some kind of accumulated database that might eventually animate some android duplicate of our own visage?
G.K. Chesterton is said to have quipped that the danger when we no longer believe in God is not that we won’t believe in anything but rather that we will end up believing in anything.

The sandwiches were procured from an establishment that went out of its way to point out that mayo, mustard or catsup would not be available.
Why does everything have to be elevated to the level of some grand struggle poking the average American in the eye regarding the things most of us enjoy?
If you regularly patronize such an establishment, in all likelihood, you are one of these types that believe your own gastronomical peculiarities should be imposed upon everybody else.
If this was just all about free enterprise, wouldn’t the true entrepreneur allow the consumer to make their own policy in regards to condiments?
