Today: A world without Jesus, Ray Comfort answers common objections to God’s plan of salvation, the affect of illegal immigrants on elections, rising expectations and revolutions, more on net neutrality, the one thing government does best
“It’s a wonder I haven’t abandoned all my ideals, they seem so absurd and impractical. Yet I cling to them because I still believe, in spite of everything, that people are truly good at heart.” from the Diary of Anne Frank (last entry). Your God damns her to hell after the hell she lived through. Your suggestion that she deserved eternity in hell because your God is so just is revolting.” MollyKnits
Now for a totally different subject. I suppose i should have realized this, but it came as a surprise to me this morning. We need to fix this. If we won’t send them home or keep them out the least we should do is stop counting them and adjusting voting districts based on that count.
Census data released Tuesday reflects how illegal immigration could shape the makeup of Congress, with border states and other immigration magnets registering big gains over the past decade.
A few years ago, I was in China and, through the help of a friend, had the chance to spend a few hours with a senior editor of the People’s Daily — the Communist Party’s voice, and the most influential journal in China.
The highly intelligent editor — himself, of course, a senior party man — was cool and dispassionate until we came to a discussion of the causes of revolutions. On that topic, he displayed an almost scholarly knowledge and focused in — with great passion and concern — on the dominant role that rising expectations of the people plays in starting a revolution.
When bureaucrats talk about increasing our “access” to x, y or z, what they’re really talking about is increasing exponentially their control over our lives. As it is with the government health care takeover, so it is with the newly approved government plan to “increase” Internet “access.” Call it Webcare.
I often bash government. I say it can’t do anything better than people in a free market.
But the government is unequalled in producing one thing: negative unintended consequences. Show me a government activity, and I will show you bad results that even the program’s advocates probably don’t like. Here’s one example.
When the Obama administration first went to the Supreme Court in March 2009 to explain its understanding of the First Amendment, Deputy Solicitor General Malcolm Stewart said the administration believed the government could prohibit a corporation from bouncing a book off a satellite into someone’s Kindle if that communication took place within 30 days of a primary or 60 days of a general election and if the book included words advocating the election or defeat of a candidate for federal office.
Today: Atheists and Christmas, Christian persecution in Iraq
According to an acquaintance of mine, it was actually Christians who started the practice of abbreviating Christmas with the cross-like X, but that’s not the main point. While atheists are busy denying the foundation for what many of them still consider to be “good,” recent history provides us with numerous examples of what happens when we take God out of a society or replace Him with a false god.
‘Tis the season for the atheist/humanist crowd to make fools of themselves. As millions of Americans celebrate Christmas, the American Humanist Association is in the midst of their annual membership drive punctuated by smart-aleck billboards and city bus placards that mock the existence of moral authority and belittle faith in Christ.
Every time I read about this I question what we did there. I’ve been an adamant supporter of our action in Iraq since the beginning, but what have we left in place of Hussein? Is it really better?
They saw their brethren murdered during Mass and then were bombed in their homes as they mourned. Al-Qaida vowed to hunt them down. Now the Christian community of Iraq, almost as old as the religion itself, is sensing a clear message: It is time to leave.
