East Africa Journal: “Problems Facing Our Socialism” -By Barack Hussein Obama Sr. This explains a lot.  I read about this in Forbes today.  One of the President’s books is titled Dreams From My Father.  Barack is basically living out the socialist dreams of his alcoholic polygamist father that he barely knew.  The loyalty might be touching if he weren’t damaging the country fulfilling his father’s dream.

Foundry’s Civil Disobedience: Will There Be a Price To Pay?

Foundry United Methodist Church in Washington, DC voted this week to allow same-gender marriages in its church building and to support its clergy members should they choose to perform same-gender marriage ceremonies in the future, whether at Foundry or somewhere else.

. . .

Will this vote be largely symbolic, analogous  to a state or municipality voting to ignore federal law– or will Foundry be following through with the vote by performing actual same sex wedding ceremonies? I suspect the latter, and if that’s indeed the case, then all eyes will be on Bishop John R. Schol of the Baltimore-Washington Annual Conference to see whether he’ll hold Foundry accountable or look the other way.

The vote at the church was 367 to 8. Wow, what an amazingly thorough mockery of God’s word and natural law.

I hope we exercise some church discipline for once and kick them out. Let ‘em start a new denomination. These people can’t even get Genesis 2 right, let alone the rest of the Bible.

This isn’t complicated, folks. Even many pro-”same sex marriage” promoting “Christians” will concede the following (yes, some will say Christian just read the Bible incorrectly for 2,000 years, but many will concede that the Bible is clear but that it isn’t all the word of God and that Paul was a homophobe).

  • 100% of the verses addressing homosexual behavior denounce it as sin in the clearest and strongest possible terms.
  • 100% of the verses referring to God’s ideal for marriage involve one man and one woman.
  • 100% of the verses referencing parenting involve moms and dads with unique roles (or at least a set of male and female parents guiding the children).
  • 0% of 31,173 Bible verses refer to homosexual behavior in a positive or even benign way or even hint at the acceptability of homosexual unions.

Seriously, kick this church out. Treat gays like we would other sinners: Welcome them, share the Gospel with them but don’t teach the opposite of what the Bible says.

Once again I’m on the “Methodist ledge” and wondering why I bother with this denomination.

Found a good blog via the previous link – another one of those almost-extinct evangelical Methodists. Loved his comment on this lame commercial:”What if a church actually proclaimed the Gospel for the forgiveness of sins? Would you come?”

The UMC needs to rethink church, alright.  They need to think about what the Bible says about it for a change.

From my other blog — Surprise! Another UCC false teacher — False teacher Chuck “Jesus is not the only way” Currie found another false UCC teacher to praise — see CNN: UCC Pastor Carlton Pearson Speaks About Eddie Long.

Geithner Cornered On Tax Hypocrisy – He vastly underpaid his taxes but wants to raise them for others.  Check.

I love this song by Brandon Heath — “Give me your eyes.”

It isn’t like I expect good theology from Pearls Before Swine, but it is ironic how the goat unwittingly does the same thing that so many Christians and non-Christians do: Hypocritically judges others for judging.  Of course, if they read Matthew 7:1-5 in context then they wouldn’t make this mistake.

Saw this on my daughter’s Facebook page.

Hate speech of false teachers puts Glenn Beck’s life at risk

Looks like the hate speech of false teachers like Jim “the Gospel is all about wealth redistribution” Wallis and race-baiting Chuck “Jesus is not the only way” Currie has resulted in someone wanting to kill Beck — see Youtube user D3R3K1600 chilling call for conspiracy to murder Glenn Beck (video) | VotingFemale.

Here’s a sample of Wallis’ hate speech.  Seems to me that Wallis loves the attention and milks the Beck thing for all it is worth.

I suppose Jim, Chuck et al will go turn themselves in now since they are the ones who think we need hate speech laws to begin with.

Deadly equivocations

According to the good folks at Dictionary.com, and equivocation is a fallacy based on the use of the same term in different senses.  Sometimes these are used in comical ways, but other times people use them to twist the meaning of something important.

An abortionist who killed over 20,000 human beings used this sleight of tongue this way:

He calls himself an “abortionist” and says, “I am destroying life.”

But he also feels he’s giving life: He calls his patients “born again.”

“When you end what the woman considers a disastrous pregnancy, she has literally been given her life back,” he says….

Did you notice how the definition of “life” shifted?  When he concedes that he destroys life it was in a literal sense.  That’s what abortion does.  It is a scientific fact that it kills an innocent human being.

But in the next sentence he changes the definition.  He didn’t give these people life in the same sense.  They were already alive.  He just meant that he (seemingly) liberated them from a problem they had.  Having an unplanned child doesn’t kill you.

Now I realize that most readers realize the shift from literal to figurative.  My point is that it is deadly how people let him get away with it.

I know someone who claimed to be pro-life who used the same type of language to rationalize abortion.  He said, “It is better to destroy one life than three.”  The implication was that if the pregnancy was allowed to continue that the lives of the mother, father and child would all be “destroyed.”  But that is an extreme exaggeration.

Yes, there are consequences to actions, and babies are a rather significant consequence of sex.  But it doesn’t automatically cause irreparable harm to three lives if you don’t hurry up and have an abortion, and it certainly doesn’t crush and dismember all three.

But if you have an abortion it really does destroy the one life.

If you ever participated in an abortion, please know that forgiveness and healing are possible through Jesus.

Whether you participated in one or not, don’t use sloppy language to rationalize abortion.  It is the greatest moral issue of our time and it would be illegal if it weren’t for all the uninformed and/or lazy and / or wimpy Christians ignoring the topic.

False teacher self parody

Wow, you just can’t make this stuff up.  False teacher Chuck “Jesus is not the only way” Currie is lamenting that people Don’t Know Much About Theology.  No kidding.  This is the “reverend” who preached a whole sermon on John 14:6 and concluded that Jesus was not the only way.  I am not making this up.  He didn’t even know there were 100+ other passages supporting the same point.

Here’s some of Chuck’s thoughts:

As a pastor, I’ve found that Biblical literacy is very low among parishioners.

And when he looks in the mirror!

As the survey notes, most Americans also have little understanding of traditions beyond their own faith.

And some “reverends” don’t even know their own faith!

Some other false views of Chuck’s that he could clear up if he just took the Bible somewhat seriously.

  • Jesus is pro-abortion, including partial-birth abortion and taxpayer-funded abortion
  • the Holy Spirit told him and the other Liberals in the UCC that God has changed his stance on marriage, parenting and homosexual behavior (now that’s blasphemy!)
  • the book of John doesn’t belong in the Bible
  • the Gospel of Thomas does belong in the Bible
  • it is acceptable to lie and libel people on blogs as long as you think you won’t get caught
  • Christians  have as much to learn from other religions as they do from us (really?  I don’t remember Jesus saying that . . .)
  • and so much more!

Tea Party members uncover rampant voter fraud in Houston

See Citizens’ Group Helps Uncover Alleged Rampant Voter Fraud in Houston.  How (non-)surprising that the  perpetrator was a former employee of SEIU (Service Employees International Union), a big supporter and influencer of President Obama.

Most of the findings focused on a group called Houston Votes, a voter registration group headed by Sean Caddle, who also worked for the Service Employees International Union before coming to Houston. Among the findings were that only 1,793 of the 25,000 registrations the group submitted appeared to be valid.

The other registrations included one of a woman who registered six times in the same day; registrations of non-citizens; so many applications from one Houston Voters collector in one day that it was deemed to be beyond human capability; and 1,597 registrations that named the same person multiple times, often with different signatures.

Caddle told local newspapers that there “had been mistakes made,” and he said he had fired 30 workers for filing defective voter registration applications. He could not be reached for this article.

Remember, the Democrats don’t even want people to have to supply identification to vote.  Now why would that be?

Top 20 Pro-Socialism Sound Bites of Obama, Advisors and Allies — Must viewing!

Health insurers are dropping coverage of children – What?!  You mean that government regulations cause people and businesses to change behaviors?  That’s never happened before.

You know those mandates that force insurance companies to cover children of adults until they are 26 years old? And the ones that forbid rejecting children who have pre-existing conditions? Yeah that costs insurance companies money. Can you believe that? Health care costs money! It costs more money to cover people for mandated coverages! Who could have foreseen that? Not Obama and his merry band of tenured Ivy League hermits, who have never held private sector jobs in their entire lives . . . Yeah, insurance companies don’t like being forced to add coverages, (= risk of having to pay claims), while keeping premiums the same.

Benny Hinn Denies Affair Despite Pics – I hope this ends his ministry and Paula White’s as well, but it probably won’t.  What frauds.  Hey, btw, he’s short a couple million dollars, so be sure to send some his way.

“Hey BarackObama, our relationship isn’t working out. Its not me, its you” -America’s Youth

Can you imagine if people had stood up to the Left like Andrew Breitbart all this time? – He does it right.  Watch the video and how he merely asks the Astroturf protestors to explain their signs.  They all scatter!  These “protestors” are being paid by unions.

What kinds of experiences do women have after an abortion? – This is sad.  Post abortion trauma is real, and Planned Parenthood and the rest of the pro-aborts won’t tell you about it.  Apparently it is bad for their business to tell you about how their services will destroy your child and you.  But there is help: Go find a Crisis Pregnancy Center like Care Net!

Uh, what about that “separation” thingy?

See Hot Air » It’s come to this: Obama begs religious leaders to help him sell ObamaCare — I’m sure the false teachers like Jim “the Gospel is all about wealth redistribution” Wallis and race-baiting Chuck “Jesus is not the only way” Currie will line up to help the President, but it sure seems odd that the “Christian” President who deliberately leaves out the “Creator” part of the Constitution would be so explicit in asking for the help of religious leaders.

Update: Right on target!  Shortly after I posted this Chuck did his part to shill this awful plan.
