END OF THE WEEK THE LOW DOWN DIRTY SHAME OF IT ALL
January week two and another odd week at that, the elephant in the room is Paris and the attack on freedom of speech and freedom in general. There is more to this and tons of articles out there Brietbart.comcaptures the headlines and as the days have gone by more opinions come to the forefront.
Most everyone is outraged and for good reason, nowhere in the Christian theology is this condoned. When Jesus confronted blasphemy he never used deadly force, he drove out the blasphemous and set an example of how to respect God.
God does not command this behavior and Jesus never taught it, forgive and turn the other cheek kind of opposite of kill the offender. Another article by the Catholic league gives a response to the attack. Mind you the magazine Charlie Hebdo is an equal opportunity offender of religious blasphemy, they have offended the Catholic Church over and over again some very nasty stuff against nuns and priest.
The Catholic league’s Bill Donohue gives a somewhat odd response and some like myself can take it as though Charlie Hebdo not only should have expected this but kind of deserved this. Donohue goes on to say he has himself protested some of the defaming of the church and God but has never once felt like killing anyone and of course one would expect that answer he should have just kept his mouth shut if you ask me.
On the same note this article from the USA Today’s Anjem Choudarythat can read similar to Donahue’s but again Donahue and the Catholic church do not and will never condone violence under any circumstance where as Anjem obviously does.
This was a sad day to say the least and we must now except that in the west we not only can say good things about religion and God we can even say bad things as well but these third world countries like North Korea, middle east and some of Africa you cannot they are still in the 1st century and have no concept of individuality and freedom so seller beware.
I look at Christianity as an individual relationship that requires you to be accountable for the decisions you make. God does not condone nor does Jesus teach violence towards offenders. We do not attack them in masses but instead we pray for them in masses both the offenders and the offensive.
Next up speaker of the house John boring Boehner gets elected speaker once again they just don’t learn folks but my question is will we learn. Although some current GOP conservatives who voted for boring John state it’s what we need to do to get stuff done. Bill Bennet former secretary of education under Reagan said on his radio show a few days ago it does not matter if Boehner or Trey Gowdy is speaker with Obama in the white house its bad news all around and I’m inclined to agree.
Another article about the Pope embracing climate change, if Francis does embrace climate change it will put Catholics in a bind since he is promoting communism whether he believes it or not it’s nothing short of communism.
Hope everyone around our great nation is staying warm while we here in California enjoy the high life; don’t be jealous we pay big for this kind of weather. Enjoy the next week and stay safe friends.
The above blog popped up on one of the blogging forums I use on Facebook, it was posted by Christian Surf and written by Allen Clifton who I’m kind of thinking is not a Christian as defined by most born again Christians would define but I can’t judge his heart only God can
It’s a pretty negative blog attacking Conservative Christians mainly Conservatives in general, I read through it and thought I would rebuttal as a conservative Christians since he’s calling me out I’ll answer his call.
The first thing is he labels all conservatives republicans and defines them as being in a cult but that simply is not true. Conservatives just can’t vote for democrats, the Democratic Party is way too progressive right now and is just too much like communism to me.
Believe me not all conservatives are republicans it’s just that’s all we can vote for, no conservative is thrilled with theses deadbeat rinos that come up for election but we either vote for them and try and change policy with a moderate republican or don’t vote and deal with deadbeat democrats and their socialism you can’t win either way.
Some conservatives will refuse to vote for moderate republicans no matter what is on the line they have too much conviction to compromise with socialism.
The next issue was abortion, as a Christian Mr. Clifton is against abortion and thinks it’s wrong and that’s really good to hear, it kind of leaves a emptiness in your soul when you meet a person that states they are a believer but thinks killing an unborn child is fine.
Clifton feels if somebody wants or has an abortion well that’s none of his business and frankly it’s nobody else’s business.
This is where I disagree and think why most level headed Christians have the view of “we cannot condone a society that kills its unborn”.
It should be all our concerns that we have legalized the murder of unborn children; it’s too convenient to just dismiss something that is wrong just because you’re told it’s none of your business.
My question to the Christian that views abortion is nobody’s business but the person having it is how do justify this if you know it’s wrong.
Would you stand by and knowingly let a person be murdered, would you be more concerned if your state government decided to legalize the killing of adults that stayed on government assistance for more than say 8 years and now is a burden on society.
What makes the abortion ok because it’s none of your business, because the child is not yet born, it can’t communicate or do complex rational thought so it’s not really a living person.
When does it not be okay, when the unborn child is 2 month in the womb, 3 months, 5, 8 when is it not okay to kill the unborn.
Guns, Mr. Clifton does not like people with guns well I own a few guns and I own them for protection. If somebody is breaking into my house I have an obligation to protect my family and I guarantee the police will not get to my house before the bad guy has done his bad deed.
Christians also believe in the 2nd amendment and the constitution that gives them freedom to bear arms.
The reason why our founding father constructed the 2nd amendment was not to just protect from home invasion of some random thug but to give the American citizen the ability to protect themselves from tyrannical power of a government and from the average thug that would threaten your personal property.
No Christian wants to use a gun but its there if we need it because some brilliant men thought it should be your right to protect yourself.
The next is Homosexuality, yes I’m opposed to the gay lifestyle on a few levels one being it’s against what the Bible teaches us as a matter of fact the inspired word of God (the Bible) discusses this at least twice first being Leviticus 18:22 and again the New Testament in Romans 1: 26-27. Mind you this verse is not condoning the act of homosexuality.
I don’t think God is just picking on the homosexual there is more here than just two of the same sexes trying to act like a heterosexual couples. Homosexuality if practiced is unsafe, unhealthy and brings risk not to mention it’s has no design to reproduce itself.
As a conservative I oppose homosexuality because the lifestyle is destructive and anti family. Today’s gay life is in your face “you must accept me and my life choices or else you’re a homophobe or a bigot” this is a sexually based sin that has embraced the politically correctness for safety.
It refuses to acknowledge its hurting and is based in a lie, becomes unstable for a society that tries to be the truth right for all that live in it.
I personally have had dealings with homosexuality in my own family and I have first hand seen the destructive behavior it has brought to not only my family but other families that it has involved with.
It’s morally wrong and biblically wrong, God does care when people hurt other people and hurt themselves it does matter to him.
Next is giving to charity and why go into this I’m at a loss, Clifton said he gives the conservative the nod on giving to charity but states why should we since their church tells them to give tithes anyhow.
Not all conservatives are Christian so can’t expect all to tithe to their church. Churches do not command that we tithe to them. I would say if you go to a church that expects you to give tithing then you should leave.
What the inspired word of God does say is this in 2 Corinthians 9:6-7 I believe most healthy Christians practice this in give based on its the right thing to do we do it out of our heart not because a church tells us to.
He goes on and pulls the greed card on conservatives that we all just want to be rich and hoard the money.
Yes we want a free market and yes capitalism is the best way to do business in a free market but you’re talking about capital cronyism not true free market capitalism where the government lets society earn their own money by working hard and helping those that cannot help themselves. The opposite of all this is communism and I’m not for that.
Right now both our state and federal governments punish you for succeeding in life by taxing you. They use those taxes wastefully if anyone should get a lecture on greed and selfishness it’s our government.
Clifton states that different denomination interprets the bible very differently and I do not agree on that. Most Judeo Christian denominations that are healthy in the word of God see God’s word all the same.
They may have different doctrines and put emphases on some biblical practices over the other but most view God’s word the same. What Clifton is talking about is religions and born again Christians don’t belong to a religion they belong to a relationship with God.
Clifton then ask what makes a person a Christian, is it going to church, reading the bible. Clifton believes that being a Christian comes down to who you are as a person and how closely you try and live your life with the beliefs of Jesus Christ and that is a pretty good answer except if the thief on the cross had followed that definition he would have gone to hell.
Salvation is what makes you a Christian, John chapter 3 verse 16 sums up what it takes to be a Christian and belong to Jesus Christ.
It is why an Atheist is not a Christian, it’s why a Muslim is not a Christian and why a ton of people that go through life thinking all I have to be is good and I’ll get to heaven are wrong Matthew chapter 7 verses 21-23
At the end Clifton just bashes conservative Christians for enjoying guns, practicing greed selfishness and hate. My question for Clifton that feels progressives and leftist are more compassionate…where is the compassion?
AMERICA LOOSES IN 2016 BECAUSE THE GOP WON IN 2014
We vote today folks so let’s make it count shall we; the title of this blog came to me last night on my way home from work. I was listening to Glen Beck on the radio and he predicted the GOP would win the house and the Senate and that may be a bad thing. My drive is only an hour so I never got to listen to what he meant by that but I have a thought on what it means.
My thought is this the current leadership of the GOP is piss poor to say the least, John Boehner and Mitch McConnell are a joke for the GOP they may as well be moderate democrats. They show no real leadership in a party that once had both houses and lost it and now are on the verge of reclaiming the power again. I guess that is the word “Power” those two see this as the same as the democrats it’s nothing but power and what they can do to rule the concept of their democracy. Well GOP senators and congressmen and this is where you don’t get it. You don’t do your job for money and power and insider trading you does this to represent your state and your country. You work for the people of your state and you make and break your country with the decisions you make or lack thereof.
The lack of leadership is what got us president Obama and Harry Reid and I fear the lack of leadership again by Boehner and McConnell will yield us President Hillary Clinton in 2016. Problem is people vote big on their pocket book and they are easily bought into by lies and deceit something the Democratic Party is good at and something moderate republicans use to keep their own hope alive. We have to stop this voters, the GOP needs to win the house the senate and the presidency to keep America from slipping in to economic and moral ruin.
Yes the GOP leadership is crap I know but so is the democratic party, it’s more than crap is just right down immoral right now and if you opted out on voting today or yesterday if you absent “T” then you voted for Harry Reid and or any other slug running for office on the democratic ticket. Voters have to be strong and vote out these democrats officials that go along with socialized health care, allowing illegal’s to run amock while we the people split the bill. In 2016 no matter how week Boehner and McConnell are no matter how stupid your GOP congressman and senator is we have to vote for who the next Republican presidential nominee is because no matter how moderate they are they still will be better than Clinton or Biden or any other democrat communist that comes along.
Stand strong and keep the GOP together and after the 2016 election then we get rid of Boehner and McConnell, you vote out your lukewarm moderate senator and congressman that plagues your state and vote in a conservative American that will work for you the people and not their own power and pocket book. Stand strong America and be patient, we will have the chance to take our country back but we have to do it right. We can’t do it for ourselves we have to do it for our future, our parents, our kids and our way of life. Please today do the right thing, Vote and let us get this country back on its feet.
That word Impeachment is out again, I’ve been hearing it for some time now but in the last few days it’s been ringing very loud “We need to impeach the president” but do you know what you are saying.
We need to impeach president Obama yes we do, he has clearly broke law of the president along with his administration so with that I say yes our representatives need to bring impeachment proceedings down on the president and his administration.
Be clear and understand this does not mean he is booted out of office in fact nothing may happen to him. Mind you he is on his last term he has little to lose and when his term is over the next person ready to take his place under the liberal progressive regime will campaign as I’m not him I’m a different person if you had voted for me back in 2008 none of this would had happened.
I think people seem to feel if you’re impeached your booted out of office because Nixon was impeached and he was booted out of office. Not true, Nixon was not impeached. Most likely Nixon would have been impeached but they would have had to prove what he was accused of first before they could impeach him.
Nixon had respect for the office of the Presidency and thus felt if he stayed on and fought these possible charges against him and his administration it would tear the country apart so he resigned the office of the presidency and stepped down.
Fast forward 20 year later when Clinton, Bill that is not Hillary was accused of conduct under the oath of the presidency. Clinton was found guilty of perjury before a grand jury, he was later censured and I believe he ended up being disbarred. He was never removed from office he later served out his term and Clinton’s to this day still have enormous amount of political power in the Democratic Party.
Yes president Obama needs impeachment proceedings to take place for himself and his administration but be aware this will not rid him of office. Like I said before he’s on his last term. In 2016 the next group of hungry democrats that are buying for power are just going to say I’m not Obama if you had voted for me in 2008 I would never had done that so be for warned.
Best thing we as people can do, yes ask our representatives for impeachment proceeding against this administration but most of all we need to vote. We need to kick out these bums that say they will represent us and don’t. I say give your Congressman, Senator and state representatives two terms to start making things right otherwise vote them out. This keeps them from getting corrupt with power. If they can’t prove they are there to represent you then they need to leave.
In closing understand what it means when you say impeachment, if you want the president out well it’s not going to happen but we can make his life hell by voting correct this year 2014 and voting correct in 2016.
