Sunday morning I opened up a story from Doug Giles that got my attention – it was entitled, “If America Goes Down the Toilet, I’m Blaming Lame Pastors.” What the heck? Should I be offended? Nope. Here’s why:
The pastors and Christians of yesteryear were not wimpy, politically correct people who advocated nothing, nor did they stand with the British who were the tyrants in charge. As Doug puts it, they “threw lighter fluid” on the fires of the revolution by their rhetoric.
(Author’s Note: I have been asked by some of my blog readers to run this Op-ed again as it is as pertinent today as when I wrote it in 2012.)
During this Holy Week for both Christians and Jews, let us remember and honor the freedoms we enjoy as Americans, the rights and privileges we sometimes take for granted, and let us celebrate in the knowledge that we live in the greatest nation the world has ever known. Let us remember our loved ones lost, and pray that our brave men and women in uniform are kept safe and out of harm’s way. Let us find comfort in knowing that as we celebrate the Resurrection and the freeing of the Jews from bondage in Egypt, we should rejoice in knowing that our dearly departed loved ones have already been welcomed into God’s Kingdom.
I pray that as we Christians and Jews celebrate freedom, restoration, redemption, and resurrection that we see this from both a spiritual and from a here and now perspective. The spiritual is obvious, the here and now not so much so, as our beloved America is at a dangerous crossroads. Do we return to God and the principals our Founding Fathers laid down in the Constitution or do we continue down Obama’s path of destruction of all this country was founded upon and all we hold dear. It is up to us, ‘We the People,’ to choose the path which we will follow. Continue reading →
Christians in Northeast Syria put out a desperate cry for help on Saturday after ISIS crossed the Khabur River and continued their campaign of terror into more Christian villages. Those who have taken up arms to defend themselves have little ammunition and few weapons. ISIS has plenty of heavy munitions, rockets, and vehicles.
This urgent message was received by the European Syriac Union on Saturday:
Urgent—ISIS attacking Syriac-Assyrians now. Began in early hours today in syria. Shelling tel tamr. Crossing khabur river to south of tel tamr between two villages. Street fighting in tel nasari. 17 syriac military council fighters surrounded in tel maghasneh. Heavy weapons & troops streaming from mount abdul aziz for major assault on entire area. Allied air strikes urgently needed. Syriac military council asks for international help.
From the top to the bottom the entire Obama Administration is completely out of touch with reality. In a speech Tuesday at the National Press Club Eric Holder stated that “We are not at a time of war.”
Wow that one was a reach. All of those airstrikes were ….what? And the President just asked Congress for authorization to start a picnic with ISIS with fried chicken and corn on the cob?
Targeted by ISIS militants whose goal is to tighten the noose around the Kurdish autonomous region, 40 thousand people…most of whom are Christians of sorts*…were forced to flee Kirkuk as the city was left in ruins after a recent ISIS attack. Now stranded on a mountain top with the threat that they will be shot if they dare try to come down off that mountain…these people who were fleeing for their lives were left without food or water…left to die like animals when the true animals are the ones perpetrating this hellish act.
Now enter center stage Barack HUSSEIN Obama to the rescue…to the rescue but for all the wrong reasons. The man who willingly and maliciously left Christopher Stevens, Sean Smith, Tyrone Woods, and Glen Doherty to die had his hand forced by the worldwide outcry calling for America to help. And so he seized upon the plight of others to counter his falling to all-time low approval numbers, and is now dropping…too late to really help…humanitarian aid to those stranded, as well as bombing ISIS forces from the air in what he calls a “limited engagement”…and doing so for his own political salvation and NOT because he gives a damn about those left to die.

In defiance of Barack HUSSEIN Obama’s and his brethren’s goal of trying to finish off what the Nazis started…yesterday Israel’s Security Council unanimously rejected…and rightfully so…John ‘Swiftboat’ Kerry’s week long cease-fire proposal that favored Hamas and would do NOTHING but allow Hamas to regroup and rearm.
However, Benjamin Netanyahu has agreed to a short 12-hour so-called ‘humanitarian cease-fire’ to send in food, water, and such to hard-hit civilian areas. But even with this Israel will still face condemnation NOT only on the world stage for their rejection of Kerry’s cease-fire proposal but also here in the U.S., as witnessed by Harry Reid and his Democratic ilk’s unmitigated gall of trying to tie in Israel’s $225 million emergency funding request for their Iron Dome defense system to an immigration bill that would fund the ILLEGALS entering our country. And they’re doing it for NO other reason than come election time they can say Republicans who voted against the bill are either anti-Israel or anti-children. Continue reading →
“All the evil in the world originates from the Jews and the Zionist barbarism.” – Hani Ramadan speaking before the Congress of the Union of Islamic Organizations (UOIF) last week in France.
And NOT a word of condemnation from Barack HUSSEIN Obama.
“Palestinians will not recognize Israel as a ‘Jewish’ state.” – Mahmoud Abbas’ words last week to members of the Palestine Liberation Organization’s Central Committee.
And NOT a word of condemnation from Barack HUSSEIN Obama.
Last year when we had a chance to remove Barack HUSSEIN Obama from office the leaders (like Robert Jeffress) of ‘certain factions’ of American Christians…the ones who bought into the Chislam nonsense…told their followers NOT to vote for Mitt Romney because he was a Mormon. “Better a muslim that we know than a Mormon we don’t know” they said.
And a faction of American Jews did NOT vote for Romney either even knowing of his strong support for Israel and his close friendship with Benjamin Netanyahu…NOT because Romney was a Mormon but because they wanted to show how ‘modern’ and tolerant they were by voting for America’s ‘supposedly’ first black president.
Well I hope both groups are happy now for NOT only has Obama taken our beloved America down the wrong path trampling and mocking our Constitution and America’s Judeo-Christian roots and beliefs as he goes, but now he’s going even further by trying to force Israel to turn over half of Jerusalem, the Wailing Wall, The Temple Mount, Old Jerusalem, and the Tomb of Jesus Christ to terrorists…to Hamas…the very same Hamas aligned with the Muslim Brotherhood and the so-called ‘Palestinians’…the very same Muslim Brotherhood that Barack HUSSEIN Obama has allowed into our halls of government.
An Egyptian judicial official announces three Christians sentence to prison (1 for life, 2 for 15 years each) for killing a Muslim. During the same period of violence, 6 Christians were murdered…no prison. The killings were sparked when Muslims accused Christians of desecrating an Islamic School, which the Christians denied.
An official speaking anonymously, said that nine Muslims were sentenced to prison for up to 5 years for damaging Christian property. No charges were lodged for the six Christians who were killed.
Shameful…utterly and completely shameful for America is NOT supposed to leave anyone behind.
Four were left behind in Benghazi to die…Bowe Bergdahl is still a prisoner of the Taliban who Obama now wants to negotiate with…an 85-year old Korean War veteran is being detained in North Korea and no one has any idea why…and Pastor Saeed Abedini…an Iranian born American citizen who converted from islam to become an ordained Evangelical pastor…has languished for over a year in the hell-holes that are the signature of Iranian jails.
His crime…Abedini is a Christian pastor who chose to practice his Christian faith…to preach Christianity in Iranian homes while in Iran to continue work on an orphanage he was building and building it with government approval. Arrested while with relatives, Abedini was convicted on charges of ‘crimes against national security’ and was given an eight-year prison sentence. Continue reading →
