State Department bending over backwards to be idiots about Islam…

After two bombings in as many days in Russia by Islamic terrorists, is this all State Department experts come up with – that the Olympics is “an opportunity for thieves or for other folks who want to cause mischief…”?  From the Associated Press:

"Major events such as the Olympic games are an opportunity for thieves or for other folks who want to cause mischief," State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf said. "Threats have been made against the Olympic games and acts of terrorism, including bombings, continue to occur in Russia."

“”Thieves” and “other folks”?  Are you kidding me?

If Russia was smart, they would not let our State Department have ANYTHING to do with security during the Olympics.  Obviously we are trying so hard not to offend the Muslims that we repeatedly, insanely ignore the source of the continuing murder and mayhem promoted by the vile Islamic ideology.  And no, those acts are not the result of “radicals” who misunderstand “true” Islam.  Those terror acts ARE true Islam.  Most Muslims appreciate the effort.  How do I know that?  Because this is exactly what orthodox Islam teaches and what most influential Islamic leaders promote.  Those who doubt this fact need to get their head out of fantasy and wishful thinking land.

A serious comedian reveals truth of liberals…

Liberals believe there is no absolute truth and believe everyone else is absolutely wrong.  Such is the oxymoronic thinking of liberals.  That is the essence of Evan Sayet’s message.

Give the YouTube, below, a look to hear more salient but largely ignored truths about how How Modern Liberals Think.

I first heard of Evan last week and discovered a gem – well worth watching.

Here is his website:

At what point is compromise facilitating what we stand against?

We are well past the point of compromise being a productive solution in a number of things.

In the federal budget battles, continuing Republican compromise, and those in the electorate who believe this is the only rational way “forward” (not caring where “forward” actually leads) are in their blissfully wishful thinking mode.

When an $800 billion debt increase is proposed, is it really helpful to compromise with a $500 billion dollar debt increase when we need to be thinking seriously about a debt reduction?  That sounds rather insane.

Budget compromise takes us to the fiscal precipice just a tiny bit slower.  I guess that’s a good thing if you expect to check out fairly soon and you don’t really care what happens in the next year or next decade.  But that really is somewhat short sighted, and, dare I say it, selfish.  It is better to stick by our principles, what we know is right.  If the other side persists in their insanity, let them take the system down without the blood of the failure being on our hands.

The same can be said of moral compromise.  Succumbing to the political pressures of the homosexual, OK, the entire LGBT lobby, who represent maybe 2% to 5% of our population is another self-destructive compromise.  How far we have fallen over the last 50 years.  Phil Robertson was absolutely correct in his example he was condemned for expressing.  Fifty years ago, not many in this nation, not the media, not the leadership, not the average Joe on the street would have thought that the overt practice, defense, and promotion of homosexuality would be standard fare in our culture yet here it is.  Just as likely, and a logical extension, is that bestiality, man-child love, and other gross perversions will be protected rights in a few decades.  What’s to stop it?  The moral floodgates have lifted.  The filth is streaming in. The pandering by the media and corporate elite is in full bloom.  It is now taboo to speak against immorality, perversion, and filth.  The persecution of Christians who express their Bible-based beliefs is well underway.  We are being intimidated into silence about morality.  Amorality and “tolerate everything” are the new gold standard.  I say nuts to that.

Some are saying that A &E’s action (and now Cracker Barrel) have created a backlash.  It’s about time.  I hope the backlash is just the beginning.  I am sick of evil being proclaimed as good and good, evil.

In the case of both fiscal and moral matters, compromise is not helpful.  It only enables evil and greed to flourish.

HERE is a great comment on this topic by Joel McDurmon of American Vision.

Our culture: Miley Cyrus, cool; Phil Robertson, fired.

Wow, am I glad I don’t have to hold down a job that prohibits me from expressing my beliefs.  That is absolutely the best thing about retirement.  Those without resources (without the ability to survive without their job) are deprived of their first amendment rights.  They cannot express their Bible-based beliefs without the threat of losing their job.  Fortunately the patriarch of Duck Dynasty has both strong beliefs and significant resources.

That is exactly what happened to Phil Robertson of Duck Dynasty when he expressed his Bible-based views on homosexuality.  Fired.  And he used pure logical extension when he asked what’s next in the human pursuit of perversion: Bestiality?  That got the gay group’s goat.

Yet on the next day on the Bobwa Wawa show (thank God she’s retiring) the perverse little miss Miley Cyrus gets laughs about her slutty behavior, tongue jobs and all.

Here is an excerpt from The Hollywood Reporter

A&E has placed Duck Dynasty patriarch Phil Robertson on indefinite hiatus following anti-gay remarks he made in a recent profile in GQ.

"We are extremely disappointed to have read Phil Robertson's comments in GQ, which are based on his own personal beliefs and are not reflected in the series Duck Dynasty," A&E said in a statement. "His personal views in no way reflect those of A+E Networks, who have always been strong supporters and champions of the LGBT community. The network has placed Phil under hiatus from filming indefinitely."

The news comes after Robertson compared homosexuality to bestiality in an interview with the magazine. He'll likely appear in season four, which bows Jan. 15, since production is largely wrapped.

Bobby Jindal made this contrast between Robertson and Cyrus:

Louisiana governor Bobby Jindal criticized the suspension of Duck Dynasty star Phil Robertson by network A&E.

“Phil Robertson and his family are great citizens of the State of Louisiana. The politically correct crowd is tolerant of all viewpoints, except those they disagree with. I don’t agree with quite a bit of stuff I read in magazine interviews or see on TV. In fact, come to think of it, I find a good bit of it offensive. But I also acknowledge that this is a free country and everyone is entitled to express their views. In fact, I remember when TV networks believed in the First Amendment. It is a messed up situation when Miley Cyrus gets a laugh, and Phil Robertson gets suspended," said Jindal in a prepared statement.

Compromise sometimes like whoring…

Paul Ryan and John Boehner are the whores, the Republic Party is the whore’s customer, and the American people are still getting screwed.

This once again proves that “party” comes before “people.”

And it proves that compromise is more important than principle.  And the result is an ever-growing, ever unrecoverable budget deficit that will create an ever greater fiscal cataclysm down the road.

Yet there are those who keep insisting that we have to compromise – we have to play the game or we will be excluded from the game.  We have to go along to get along.  That kind of “group think” will not result in change until AFTER we’ve reached the precipice.  It is not merely the blind leading the blind, it is the irresponsible leading the compromisers who really know better but who are gutless.

The Ryan-Boehner-led Republicans are the Neville Chamberlains of Congress.  They are wishful-thinking their way to relevance and fiscal peace.  They are oblivious to the fact that their “fiscal peace” is merely “peace in our time”, meaning peace for the moment leading inevitably to a fiscal disaster.

It’s fine and good to compromise when there is little at stake.  But that is not the case with the spending addiction rampant in Congress. 

At what point will our elected representatives (and compromise-addicted electorate) get it?

Churches teach “repentance” as if people believe there is such a thing as “sin”

“Repent and be saved.”  That message is preached week after week in the great majority of churches in the US.  "We all sin and fall short of the glory of God” likewise is a popular Biblical quote.

I have attended many churches over the past several years.  I’ve studied the liberalization (aka “apostatizing”) occurring in the largest wings of the major denominations.  I am afraid that outside of conservative Christianity, there is little understanding of what “sin” and “repentance” mean.  Why? Because the idea of “sin” is a foreign concept in today’s culture and in most of today’s churches.  In several significant instances (homosexuality, abortion, and gay marriage come to mind) the mainstream is declaring there is no such thing as sin anymore.  Any chosen lifestyle and behavior is just as good as another.  So what then becomes of the purpose of repentance?

What happens when people finally hear these proclamations about “sin?”   The words “irrelevant”, “archaic concept”, and "that doesn’t apply anymore” come to mind.  Why?  Because a major chunk of our culture does not believe moral absolutes exist anymore.  Without moral absolutes there can be no sin.  Without law, there can be no violations.  We live in a culture where moral absolutes, God’s laws, are not understood or believed.  The prevailing standard is what is true for you is not necessarily true for me and vice versa – an “if it works, it’s cool” mentality.  “Expediency” is the word for that.  Taken to expediency’s logical conclusion, if I need money, steal it, if I like my neighbor’s wife, entice her, if I dislike someone, kill him.

Preachers today need to back up a step or two and explain the reality of sin, unless they are literally just speaking to the choir.  They need to discuss “the law of God” as a constant reality that is not confined to 2 or 3 thousand years ago but that still prevails today.  They need to discuss why those laws are necessary and why they still apply today.  They need to discuss the consequences of breaking those laws and that the reality that breaking them is “sin.”  Everyone does this. 

But these realities are lost on most in our nation and in our liberal churches.

The churches have been speaking to the choir way too long.  I hope soon they begin to address the culture, define the problem, provide examples of culture’s deceptions, and boldly declare the truth of their ignorance of the reality of God’s laws, the objective moral absolutes that are as definite and as binding upon all our lives as gravity.
