Don Boys Common Sense for Today Fri, 24 Jan 2020 02:48:02 +0000 en-US hourly 1 Al Sharpton Charging Trump With Lack of Knowledge is Like a Skunk Accusing a Rabbit of Having Bad Breath! Fri, 24 Jan 2020 02:21:06 +0000 Al Sharpton said last week on MSNBC that President Trump loses his temper “because he is covering up for his lack of knowledge….Donald Trump always wanted to be in the circles of influence and was always rejected. Always seen as this outer-borough guy whose daddy had money. You know, with Roy Cohn—they were not considered respectable.”

No doubt President Trump has associated himself with disreputable people, been divorced twice and sexually involved with various women. Furthermore, he has made revolting remarks often about disgusting people. Moreover, he is often rude, crude, and lewd, but being castigated by low-life Al Sharpton is outrageous, almost funny.

When one knows some of the highlights, or the lowlights, of Al’s life and listens to him for a few minutes, it is obvious that for him to call Trump ignorant is like a skunk accusing a rabbit of having bad breath.

The Reverend Sharpton is a high priced but lowdown clown who doesn’t seem to know that the foul breath of prejudice is deadly to the soul.

Sharpton’s first marriage was to Marsha Tinsley that lasted about a year. His second marriage was in 1980 to backup singer, Kathy Jordan, whom he met while on a James Brown tour in 1971. They separated in 2004. He has been seen at high profile events with Aisha McShaw, 20 years younger who without any hesitation has claimed to the media that she is Sharpton’s “girlfriend.”

Just Richest, an entertainment publication, declared, “This in itself would not be an issue, as the reverend is at liberty to date owing to his over a decade separation from his wife. But the issue rises from the fact that he is still legally bound to his former wife as their separation is yet to be legalized into a formal divorce.”

Al’s divorce seems to be in question since Heightline reported, “The preacher and his wife got amicably divorced in 2004. It is common knowledge that while still married to Kathy, the Social/political activist had a girlfriend in the person of Aisha McShaw.” Well, if true, it is tragic and no true Baptist preacher would try to defend such sleaze.

Al asked, “Don’t I have a right to date when my marriage has been over for a decade?” Yes, he does but not before he is divorced and there are many news accounts reporting that he is not divorced.

Moreover, his girlfriend dresses like a typical Hollywood floozy and has a daughter from a “previous relationship.” Just the observation of one Baptist about another Baptist.

The Reverend Al was a member of the Church of God that ordained him at age 10. Later he became a Baptist; however, he is a preacher who seldom preaches. When he does preach, it is contemptible preaching. His record reveals him to be a hater of Whites, Jews, and Conservatives of any color.

Al and his buddies at Black Lives Matter and the New Black Panther Party held a protest in defense of anti-Semite Louis Farrakhan and his black racist hate group, the Nation of Islam.

When speaking at New Jersey’s Kean College in 1994, Sharpton said: “White folks was (sic) in the cave while we [blacks] was (sic) building empires … We built pyramids before Donald Trump ever knew what architecture was … we taught philosophy and astrology (sic, astronomy) and mathematics before Socrates and them Greek homos ever got around to it.”

Al neglected to mention that on the black continent of Africa, Blacks were so backward, they had never seen a wheel in the 1800s! Oxford University Professor John Baker, reveals in Race that the wheel was unknown in sub-Saharan Africa even in the mid-1800s. Baker quotes the missionary-explorer David Livingstone’s diaries which tells of thousands of Africans in Linyanti, (now Namibia) to see his “vehicles in motion and thus for the first time to observe the rotation of a wheel.”

Al would have us believe that Blacks developed vast civilizations (even the pyramids) yet less than 200 years ago did not know of the wheel. It seems the wheel was first used in Sumer in present-day Iraq, comprising the southern part of Mesopotamia in about 3500 BC, and spread across Europe, Asia, and North Africa.

The Kean College speech featured Sharpton explaining that America’s founders consisted of “the worst criminals, the rejects they sent from Europe … to the colonies.” “So [if] some cracker,” he continued, “come and tell you ‘Well, my mother and father blood go back to the Mayflower,’ you better hold your pocket. That ain’t nothing to be proud of, that means their forefathers was (sic) crooks.”

Real scholarship, huh? Evidently, Al’s forte is not English or history! What was that about “lack of knowledge?”

Al again showed his hatred for America when he said, “While the rest of the country waves the flag of Americana, we understand we are not part of that. We don’t owe America anything—America owes us.”

The Baptist preacher’s statement on perversion clearly puts him in another denomination. He declared, “As a Baptist minister, I don’t have the right to impose my views on anyone else. If committed gay and lesbian couples want to marry, that is their business; none of us should stand in their way.”

As a Baptist minister he has the right and obligation to preach truth. But it seems the reverend might be planning an international office in Sodom.

When David Dinkins (an African American) was mayor of New York City, Sharpton angrily denounced Dinkins (when the black mayor was unsupportive of Sharpton’s activities) in the following terms: “David Dinkins, you wanna be the only nigger on television, only nigger in the newspaper, only nigger that can talk. Don’t cover them, don’t talk to them, ’cause you got the only nigger problem. ‘Cause you know if a black man stood up next to you, they would see you for the whore that you really are.” He also referred to Dinkins as “that nigger whore turning tricks in City Hall.”

Sharpton, like many other Blacks, has no problem using the forbidden word. “There are white niggers. I’ve seen a lot of white niggers in my time.” But, don’t you be so careless.

Sharpton was involved in an incredibly sleazy episode that almost destroyed white, former Assistant District Attorney Steven Pagones who was accused by Tawana Brawley in 1987 of raping her. Al jumped to her defense (since she was black) and was another opportunity to “play to the gallery.” Sharpton was found guilty of defamation of the prosecutor by a jury in a New York court. Moreover, Sharpton has refused to accept responsibility and expresses no regret for defaming Mr. Pagones.

With such a deplorable résumé, it is no surprise that he is powerfully ridiculed on the one side and weakly defended on the other side. Liberals cringe during Al’s television show as he stumbles through hollow, hateful, and humiliating diatribe. Thinking people laugh.

A 2013 Zogby Analytics poll found that one quarter of Blacks said that Al Sharpton speaks for them. Radicals like Sharpton have taken “civil” out of civilization and put “cult” into culture. He speaks with forked tongue so it might be wise for Blacks to be more careful whom they have speak for them.

With Al Sharpton’s dismal, disgraceful, and dubious life, he has the gall to criticize Trump for anything. Maybe this an example of the pot calling the kettle black.

But then, that might appear to be racist.

Traditional Muslims are Dishonest, Dangerous, and Deadly Whether in Iran, Iraq, or America! Wed, 15 Jan 2020 17:58:23 +0000 Peaceful nations have nothing to fear from backslidden Muslims (moderates) but traditional Muslims (whether Sunni at 940 million, Shiite at 120 million, or the other offshoots) are zealots with an obligation to convert the world to a massive caliphate. While the various sects have a hot, holy hatred for each other, they will temporarily suppress the desire to send other Muslims to Paradise so they can kill the infidels (non-Muslims) and establish a global caliphate.

Syria is a very unique country: primarily a Sunni nation with a strong Shiite minority. President Assad belongs to the Alawite minority, an offshoot of Shiite Islam that is supported by Iranian Shiites. This love affair between Iranian and Syrian Shiites is the reason the area is a bubbling volcano.

The Sunni sect thrives in most Islamic nations (Syria 85%, Saudi Arabia 90%, Egypt 90%, Jordan 90%, Turkey 65%) while the Shiites dominate Iran 90% and Iraq 65%. Hatred between Sunnis and Shiites going back to the death of Mohammed and his successor is currently expressed in the tragic Yemen (Iran’s proxy) war funded by Saudi and the U.S. with massive arms sales by the U.S. and Britain.

Saudi Arabia and the U.S. should stop the slaughter in Yemen and let Saudi and Yemen (Iran) settle their own religious and political differences.

An honest writer will always write the truth about Islam (and all things) and will never refuse to expose a lie. Fact: Islam is the Jonestown Cult without the Kool-Aid. It is dishonest, dangerous, and deadly.

Islam has a 1400-year history and has two “holy” books that clearly delineate what they believe; however, most people refuse to read them. Moreover, numerous Muslim scholars have expounded on their holy books so the dullest person has no excuse to be deceived into thinking Islam is a peaceful religion. People who believe that failed World History—in high school.

Moreover, they obviously know nothing about world events in the last 20 years.

And for college graduates to believe that traditional Islam is peaceful, requires a huge gulp of Kool-Aid.

Islam was started by an illiterate moon worshiper named Mohammed (spelled many different ways)—a pagan, slave-holding, sexist, thieving pedophile. If gasping Progressives will correct me, my apologies will follow.

Muslims have boasted how slowly Christianity gained prominence while Islam gained prominence so quickly. I pointed out that Christ’s basic message is love and Mohammed’s is hate. Christians used the Word while Muslims used a sword to conquer.

Muslims are still altering nations as free nations are being overwhelmed by Muslim immigrants who are swiftly changing the nations’ cultures. England is no longer England. France is no longer France. Germany is no longer Germany. And America is no longer America. Many don’t think that matters but I do. Moreover, we are fools if we don’t recognize the enemy among us.

I authored ISLAM: America’s Trojan Horse! in 2003 with second and third editions in 2009 and 2012 suggesting “the day [is] coming when our glorious Republic will only be remembered as a noble experiment between the great oceans. In kindness, we have permitted aliens inside our nation who have no intention of being absorbed into our ‘melting pot.’ They believe in the ‘salad bowl’ theory. Muslims will not adopt our ways and be assimilated into our culture. They are determined to change our culture, laws, and religion as they have in England, France, and other nations.”

I first wrote that in 2003. It is far worse than I anticipated. European nations have never seen such a massive sea change in their culture as observed by the invasion of immigrants from the Middle East and Africa. If American leaders would simply open their eyes, they could see the same thing happening here. It is almost too late to stop the massive shift in our national life.

There are 3000 mosques in America and 80% of them are controlled by the most extreme Wannabee sect in Saudi Arabia. It is interesting that there is not one church, of any kind, in Saudi Arabia! I have challenged Muslims and US progressives who are so sensitive about equality and diversity and fairness to help me start the Trinity Baptist Church in Mecca but I’ve had no response from the self-righteous hypocrites.

Most politicians are too gutless to read and acknowledge the facts. It is much easier to question my sanity, my sincerity, my ability, and my parentage than to respond honestly.

The Hamas Charter demands that “Israel will exist and will continue to exist until Islam will obliterate it”; therefore, all Hamas followers are obligated to drive Israel into the sea. The Ayatollah Ali Khamenei agreed, “Israel is a cancerous tumour that should be cut and will be cut.” It is significant that Psalms 83:4 revealed this hatred millennia ago: “They have said, ‘Come, and let us wipe them out as a nation, that the name of Israel be remembered no more.’”

The biggest mistake and most dangerous mistake being made by the world’s leading politicians is their statement: “Radical Islamic terrorists are the nation’s biggest problem.” That is not true: Islam is their biggest and most dangerous problem. There is little to fear from a backslidden Muslim.

Yasir Kazi is not a backslidden Muslim but an American imam (Ph.D. from Yale) and former professor at Rhodes College in Memphis, Tennessee. He has taught that Christians are “filthy” in the sight of Allah. He compared us to feces and urine saying we are the “most evil of evils.” But that’s his mildest charge against us. This dude has been characterized by The New York Times magazine as “one of the most influential conservative clerics in American Islam.” What else does that “conservative” teach? He tells his students to rape, steal, and murder any who do not convert to Islam, yet he has never been arrested!

Imam Mohamad Adam el-Sheikh, Ph.D. from Temple University, told the Washington Post that suicide bombings are acceptable “if certain Muslims are to be cornered where they cannot defend themselves…” He is also the head of the Islamic Judiciary Council of the Shari’ah Scholars’ Association of North America. Few Americans know that such a group exists. Sharia law is based on the Koran and the Hadith, the sayings and actions of Mohammed.

Many Muslims believe they should live under their religious law and not under state or federal laws. Some states have passed laws making it illegal for any court to consider any foreign laws in making decisions. Since Muslims consider sharia law as divine and cannot be changed, a major train wreck is ahead.

Zee News reported that a female Muslim professor at Islam’s most prestigious university said Muslim men are permitted to rape non-Muslim women and enslave them. “Allah allows Muslims to rape non-Muslim women in order to humiliate them, claims Islamic professor,” Try to find any US Muslim leader (even among the most moderate) who renounced and repudiated her claim.

Most people are fearful of criticizing, even questioning Muslims since they are a preferred, protected, and pampered class thanks to a gutless media and know-nothing academia.

World leaders have displayed political correctness and personal cowardice in dealing with Islam, becoming tools for Muslims to advance their cause. Such leaders will be recognized as cheerleaders for their own destruction. Leaders who are afraid of adverse public opinion and being labeled “conservative” (gasp!) or “Fundamentalist” (gasp! gasp!) are moral cripples who are not aware of their limp and crooked walk.

Such leaders, in crises, are as useless as a milking stool under a bull.

America is One Election From Socialism! Fri, 10 Jan 2020 17:45:09 +0000 Americans were jubilant during the 1920s as the stock economy expanded quickly, more than doubling between 1920 and 1929. It seemed the stock market could not go down. Greedy, speculative Americans even borrowed money to purchase stocks. Everything was positive and people lost their perspective throwing concern, caution, and common sense to the wind. Eat, drink, and be merry, for tomorrow will produce more profits. Thus, the label “the Roaring Twenties.”

However, the roaring twenties came to a sickening halt on Black Tuesday, October 29, 1929 when the stock market hit bottom and newspaper headlines screamed, “Wall Street in Panic as Stocks Crash!”

America and the world got a sense of reality that resonates today—a scientific fact became reality: what goes up also goes down.

This economic disaster was worldwide and lasted longer and was more devastating than any financial crisis in the history of the industrialized world. America was hurting all across the fruited plain as a result of the Great Depression and that was made worse by the drought and dust storms in the 1930s

In 1930, severe droughts in the Southern Plains brought high winds and dust from Texas to Nebraska, killing people, livestock and crops. With no jobs and no savings, consumer debt proliferated. Then the drought in the Midwest was followed by crop failure; other farmers left crops to rot in the fields as people starved in other parts of the distressed nation.

Thousands of farmers lost their farms that were engulfed by the dust storms. Not too smart farming, especially over-cultivation, had caused the Midwest to turn into a Dust Bowl.

Americans were forced to buy on credit with no jobs or money resulting in numerous foreclosures and repossessions that constantly climbed.

U.S. unemployment soared to 25% and wages fell for those fortunate few who had a job. When their money ran out, people stopped spending, only accelerating the panic. Since so many people were unemployed, the Gross National Product plummeted into the basement to 50%.

Unemployed citizens pulled savings out of their accounts triggering a bank run that caused half the nation’s banks to close. In 1933, all U.S. banks were closed by order of President Roosevelt. There were about 9,000 bank failures during the ten year depression. In 1933 alone, Americans lost $140 billion dollars and there was no federal insurance to reimburse the depositors.

Long lines of the unemployed (15 million) were common as were soup kitchens. Once wealthy men lost everything and jumped from the high windows of their plush offices. Others, literally sold fruit on the street for pennies. Hundreds of men carried signs informing all that they were unemployed and would take any job.

Many large cities had their shantytowns where once prosperous or at least middle class people now lived in squalor. Millions of Americans lived in the illegal, but tolerated ramshackle dwellings.

In desperation, Americans turned to the Democrats for their salvation; their savior was President Franklin D. Roosevelt (FDR). The leftist president signed the New Deal into law creating 42 new government agencies. The most long-lasting result of the Great Depression was the Social Security System that plagues and pleases (depending on one’s perspective) our nation yet today. Socialism was introduced to America and will unfortunately stay until the millennium.

After a devastating, dismal, and destructive ten years, the depression ended, not by FDR’s socialist alphabet federal agencies, but by World War II.

During the ten-year depression, politicians vied with each other to gain the ear and the vote of Americans. Roosevelt had already primed the pump but the water turned out to be bitter. Such difficult conditions brought out the worst of people—including more socialist politicians who demagogued their way into office.

An ostentatious, loud, grandiose senator from Louisiana named Huey “the Kingfish” Long took the stage in 1935 with his “Share the Wealth” plan—which included a guaranteed minimum income of $2,500 for every adult, old-age pensions for all, cancellation of all personal debts, free college, a thirty hour work week; four weeks of vacation for everyone, and an electric refrigerator and automobile for every America home.

There were over 27,431 local Share the Wealth Clubs, with over 7 million members nationwide promoting Socialism.

Americans were swallowing the socialism pill.

Like all demagogues, the Kingfish went after the corporations and billionaires (who had provided millions of jobs) as looters, moral lepers, and thieves. Sound familiar?

Just after his 42nd birthday, Senator Long was shot in Baton Rouge, the state capital, and died saying, “God, don’t let me die. I have so much to do.” But he died and nascent Socialism’s ascendency was delayed.

FDR projected a calm energy and optimism, famously declaring, “the only thing we have to fear is fear itself.” No, all you have to fear are self-righteous, zealous, Socialists—many of them Democrat presidential candidates.

Every Democrat candidate is so leftist, they make Huey Long and FDR look like flaming Libertarians.

You Can Have a Winning, Worthwhile, and Wholesome Life! Wed, 01 Jan 2020 08:00:01 +0000 Why not be kind, after all, it doesn’t cost anything!

For a few years, I have tried to say or do something each day for someone with no possibility of benefit to me. That usually happens in restaurants, motels, airports, and other places of business. Famous Baptist John Bunyan said, “You have not lived today until you have done something for someone who can never repay you.” That is the essence that I have tried to practice but without the eloquence of Bunyan.

Most of what we do each day is predetermined to benefit ourselves in some way. I will sell some books, appear on a talk show, book a speaking engagement, or make an investment decision. Of course, each contact I make will be reciprocal since the people with whom I interact will get something they want from me.

Mutual reciprocity is a way of life and it is not evil or even selfish. Even among family members there is normally a reciprocal understanding: children obey parents and experience more freedom or money; they do well in school and good things follow; a man is especially kind and romantic to his wife and there is often a quo that follows the quid. It is even biblical to live that way, but John Bunyan suggested that there is normal everyday living and then there is superior living. Moreover, the inference is that those who try to live a superior or abundant life will not be a loser but a winner by not seeking any personal advantage.

What a change in America if more of us practiced that living maxim every day, not just during this time of year.

Recently, I put this into practice in my doctor’s office waiting at the lab for a test. A crowd was already ahead of me. One was a young man maybe twenty years old who was mentally and physically handicapped, accompanied by a social worker. Those waiting for lab work had not recognized Christopher’s presence–maybe because it was awkward to do so. He was so pathetic and observers no doubt experienced some undeserved guilt for being healthy. And there was hopelessness knowing we were helpless. He was simply not there. It was so much easier that way.

As I sat beside him, he said, “My name’s Christopher Edwards and I can spell my name. C-h-r-i-s-t-o-p-h-e-r.”

“Wow,” I said. “I’m not sure I could spell that correctly, Christopher. That’s much more difficult than John, Bill, or Don. My name is Don Boys—D-o-n. But that’s much easier to spell than Christopher. You are to be commended for your accomplishment.”

By now, people sitting around us had accepted both Christopher and me. Some of the awkwardness was gone. Some were even smiling.

Again he said, “My name is Christopher Edwards and I can spell it. C-h-r-i-s-t-o-p-h-e-r.”

“That is sure a worthy accomplishment, Christopher. I sure like that checkered shirt you are wearing. Is green your favorite color?”

“Yes, I like green. My name is Christopher. C-h-r-i-s-t-o-p-h-e-r.”

There was silence then I heard my name, “Don Boys.”

I walked into the lab for them to take my blood, or some of it, and I thought of my strong, bright, handsome, articulate son saying, “My name is Michael Boys and I can spell my name. M-i-c-h-a-e-l. I started to cry as I signed my name. As the lady took my blood, she looked at me for the first time and seeing my watery eyes, asked if she had hurt me.

“No, you did a very good job. Thanks for your concern.”

Walking out of the office, I realized that I had taken life, health, family, friends, and the goodness of God for granted. Through no talent, knowledge, or sacrifice of mine, I have an incredible family all healthy (as far as we know), bright, talented, educated, and almost all in the service of others.

Jesus said, “I am come that ye might have life, and you might have it more abundantly.” Everyone wants a life, a good life, but we often miss out on the abundant life—reaching out to others.

Christ spoke about this in His parable of the Good Samaritan. The Samaritans were a despised group of half-breeds who hated the Jews and were hated by them. It has been asserted that Samaritans had desecrated the Jewish Temple during Passover with human bones.

But this Samaritan did not respond to Jewish hatred and did not fit the vile stereotype. While traveling the seventeen-mile road from Jerusalem to Jericho he saw a wounded Jew beside the road. The Samaritan bandaged his wounds, put him on his beast, and took him to an inn where he could receive additional help. The innkeeper was shocked to find a Samaritan helping a hated Jew and going further than humanity would require. He paid his motel and food bill and promised to pay more if necessary. No, something very unusual was going on. The innkeeper observed an unlikely person exhibiting principle and acting nobly even at a personal cost.

Two religious leaders, a Priest and Levite, had passed by the injured man; after all, they were too busy on an important mission to take time to do good. They were probably en route to do lectures at “The Jericho Symposium on Personal and Corporate Relief” and “Personal Kindness, a Major Religious Commitment.” They passed by on the other side fearing that they might be attacked or might be contaminated by a corpse. Christ’s Jewish listeners were to identify with the wounded man realizing the help received from a hated Samaritan is grace from an unexpected source. It also shows the folly, foolishness, and falsity of hating anyone, especially group hate.

The Priest and Levite who were supposed to be servants of others, basically asked, “How will this affect me if I try to help?” Will the reciprocity be good or bad? They were badly flawed individuals.

Actually, the Samaritan is not to be commended for helping the wounded man; after all, humanity requires that of everyone; however, the Samaritan went beyond taking the man to safety and succor but to surviving. He went much further than living. He paid for the lodging and care and promised the innkeeper to repay him if the man’s care was more costly. None of that was expected.

But Christ said, “Go and do likewise.” We are to lift up the fallen, encourage the depressed, bind the wounds, strengthen the weak, and do so without realizing personal benefit.

Wimpy modern “snowflakes” should stop whining and make a contribution like get a job, visit a sick person, take dinner to a widow down the street, cut a neighbor’s grass, tutor a struggling student, visit the city mission and hug a drunk or druggie and say, “I love you and Christ loves you.”

It doesn’t cost you to be kind. It pays here and in eternity. But we are all so busy about good, important, and necessary things we don’t go the second mile and often not even the first mile. It reminds me of a real-life psychology experiment reported in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, when seminary students in a rush to teach on this very parable, failed to stop to help a man slumped over in an alley between two buildings! Some of the seminarians even stepped over the man in a rush to speak on the subject—the Good Samaritan!

I drove away from the medical office and as I turned left (something I seldom do) I thought of my healthy, bright son, daughters, wife, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. Fighting tears, I said, “My name is Don Boys—D-o-n B-o-y-s and I’m very thankful I can spell my name.”

I want to be thankful every day of the year.

True to Their Roots, Christianity Today Attacks Trump! Mon, 23 Dec 2019 23:32:42 +0000 Christianity Today (CT), the mouthpiece for watered-down Christianity, has attacked President Trump, demanding he be removed from office. The editor, Mark Galli, suggested the president’s immorality, lying, and other egregious actions demand removal especially for those who have “loyalty to the Creator of the Ten Commandments.” Moreover, he declared if Trump supporters continue their support, then they “are not being loyal to the Creator.” That is arrogant, asinine, and audacious nonsense! It is also balderdash and a generous slice of baloney.

It is surprising that the editor, in writing that statement, did not drown in his own gall since CT has never taken an historic stand for biblical inerrancy. That is one of the main reasons the CT crowd, known as loosey-goosey Evangelicals, split away from orthodox Christianity. In doing so, they jumped into bed and snuggled up to almost anyone with a divinity degree and a silver cross necklace. Truth, since it often stings, doesn’t matter to them.

I suggest that Galli be fired before he retires; however, CT is known for being spineless and for decades has been known for not having strong opinions about anything—except an undisguised loathing for biblical Christianity and now Trump.

That’s how they can live with the Democrats’ fabricated, flawed, even false impeachment pitch that would make former honest Democrats blanch with horror.

According to Franklin Graham, his daddy, who gave the first $10,000 to start CT, repudiated the magazine many years ago. Franklin also revealed that his dad voted for Trump.

The editor declared, “There was an unambiguous, clear, and single instance in which the President of the United States used his power to try to coerce a head of state to harass one of his political opponents.” Well, it may be unambiguous to him but to most Americans, Trump was trying to make sure that political corruption was being handled as he is required to do before foreign aid is dispersed.

The loosey-goosey approach to the Bible has enabled CT to defend and promote a vast assortment of left wingers while it excoriates Trump. Such inconsistencies, normal for the magazine, even permitted their defense of Karl Barth. Barth’s doctrine and lifestyle cannot be defended by any thinking, principled person. Barth was a Marxist, rejected capitalism, and brought his mistress into his home with his wife and children! He rejected inerrancy as does CT and was a Universalist according to other famous theologians—Brunner, Balthasar, and Berkouwer.

CT is far more comfortable with Barth the Marxist than Boys the Biblicist!

CT has the ink and paper and missionary zeal to criticize Trump (and of course, there is much to criticize) but they are not as uncomfortable as a dog in hot ashes when they praise a theological jerk like Karl Barth. Someone’s not thinking straight or someone doesn’t care about balance and truth.

But CT has plenty of ink and paper to demand the President, chosen by 63 million Americans, be removed from office.

Moreover, what does that say about the 63 million people who voted for him and the 75 million who plan to vote for him in 2020?

CT’s history of condescending false intellectualism is pitiful, nauseating, and embarrassing. The magazine has been progressively leaning left since its founding by Billy Graham and some lifetime Fundamentalists who were ashamed of their heritage and had insatiable desires for acceptance and respectability in the religious world.

CT’s founders did not agree with the Apostle Paul’s command to “come out from among them” because they wanted to stay in their corrupt denominations and maintain their perks, power, and positions. After all, they reasoned, one can carry personal and doctrinal purity just so far. They also did not want to pay the price of being shunned, slandered, and sacked by their churches. Many religious leaders had moved up in this world and enjoyed the good life. So they had to be careful about whom they antagonized. Same is true today. One must be practical, you know.

CT is careful not to alienate the intellectual left and they accuse those who do of being attack dogs while the CT writers have been lap dogs from their first issue. Real Christian leaders are supposed to be watch dogs. After all, there are still wolves out there who are seeking to destroy the flock. CT editors have been dumb dogs of Isaiah (that’s one D.D. I don’t want) who refuse to bark when the flock is in danger.

The magazine’s editors and writers are not totally uninformed. They are aware that Christian leaders are required to “contend for the faith,” standing upon the inspired, infallible, inerrant, and indispensable Word of God. Historically this has required Christian leaders to “rebuke,” “mark,” and “avoid” those who reject biblical truth but doing so according to Ephesians 4:15: “Speaking the truth in love.” It requires another action since they must “come out from among them.”

However, the CT crowd does not want to make the tough decision to take a stand against the very liberal religious crowd to whom they have pandered for decades.

The very loose CT crowd wants to present a soft, sophisticated, and scholarly persona to the world and that’s why they broke away from traditional orthodox Christians whom they perceived were not sensitive (enough) to social justice, ecumenism, climate change, etc. There is concern on the part of Evangelicals that Bible believers are not cognizant, concerned, or committed to social problems; however, astute Christians know that their main message is Christ and His death and resurrection. They remembered the debacle in the 1920s when the social gospel was preached and it destroyed leading denominations; therefore, concerned Christians wanted to steer away from that deadly mistake.

Christianity Today is more dedicated to “love” than truth which is the main reason they don’t have convictions and they can run with the hare and hunt with the hound. They seek peace at all costs and with that attitude, truth is always the casualty. Consequently, CT devotees are fearful of strong personalities who know what they believe. Christians, according to the philosophy of CT, must never be perceived as definitive, strong, determined, confrontational—hence their hatred of these qualities even in Trump. Evangelicals speak and write about civility and usually practice it with unbelievers and fellow Evangelicals, but often are most unkind, unfair, and uncivil when dealing with Fundamentalists. After all, tolerance only goes so far!

Weak Evangelicals have proved to be what astute people knew they always were: a hodgepodge of theological lightweights (with a few heavyweights), philosophical cripples, and devotees of political correctness.

Compromising religious leaders said that they would remain in corrupt denominations and fight for truth; well, they stayed in but they refused to fight. New Evangelicals are lovers, not fighters, and they don’t understand that principled people love truth enough to fight for it. Most Evangelical leaders will not fight unbelief and corruption but they gladly fight committed Christians over anything—even their support of Trump! As a Christian virtue, love is greater than faith and hope (1 Corinthians 13:13), but it is not greater than truth!

Long ago, Evangelicals at Christianity Today digressed, departed, and deserted biblical Christianity and with this unfair, untrue, and unprovoked attack on President Trump they have also deserted common sense when he has done more for unborn babies, a strong judiciary, and a strong economy than any other president.

Tessa is Dead: Now Execute Her Teenage Killers! Wed, 18 Dec 2019 16:07:43 +0000 College freshman, Tessa Majors is dead. She was viciously stabbed in daylight by a 13-year-old boy during an attempted robbery in Manhattan. Reportedly, two accomplices were involved in the killing. Authorities are debating whether or not to try the admitted killer as an adult when they should plan on trying him as an adult and executing him, and maybe his accomplices. Of course New York State removed the death penalty for any cause, but that can be and should be changed.

News reports reveal that she was shopping for marijuana and while that doesn’t excuse the crime, it provides further proof of an audacious, arrogant, and angry generation with no fear or respect for God or man.

I’m glad I don’t know any details about the killers, but it doesn’t matter. Whether they are black or white; rich or poor, Baptists or Buddhists (or Muslim), educated or dumb as a box of rocks, they deserve to die. When America’s youth (and adults) watch two or three teens strapped onto a gurney and executed, it might send a message that if a person takes a life, his or her life will be taken by the state.

That could save hundreds of lives by letting potential killers know we are fed up and ready to deal with killers.

When a beastly thing like this happens, many bleeding hearts wring their hands and ask, “Why did something like this happen? What could motivate such people?” It’s called evil. Everyone is born with an evil nature that must be harnessed, molded, and motived to do right instead of wrong. And evil people must be dealt with proportionate to their crime. And murder requires death—even for teens.

Now enter the whiners who shed copious tears over the killer and plead for leniency, compassion, and a second chance but few tears are shed for the victim and her family. Besides, such whining won’t help the victim or future victims.

Vicious killers must understand—you take a life, you lose your life.

It is incredible that opponents of the death penalty tell us that it perpetuates violence. No, it ends violence, at least as far as the killer is concerned. Death penalty critics can’t see the vast difference in the state execution of a premeditated killer and a person who commits premeditated murder. Sure, both are violent; however, one is deserved and the other is not.

Government is supposed to protect the innocent and punish the guilty. Those are the two functions of government, yet our states are failing at both.

It is almost always true that those people who oppose the death penalty for convicted killers are almost always loud proponents of abortion! Let’s see now: they don’t want vicious killers to be killed, but they do want innocent, unborn babies to be butchered! I don’t understand that kind of thinking. At least the killer had a proper trial with a defense attorney and modern science to use in his defense. A butchered baby can’t raise a hand or whimper, “Please help me.”

Additionally, convicted kidnappers, rapists, and traitors should get the death penalty as they did 50 years ago.

I have asked my opponents if I have a right to defend myself if a person is trying to kill me, and most of them agreed that it is acceptable. I then asked them, “If it is morally and legally right for me to defend myself—even killing my attacker—before I am killed, why is it wrong for the state to kill him after he has killed me?” That includes teenagers. I would not have been concerned about my attacker’s age, and neither should the state. My critics are strangely quiet.

One of the best arguments against the death penalty at any age is that an innocent person may be executed. In fact, irresponsible journalists have boldly stated that 4% of death row felons were in fact, innocent. But no one can give any supporting evidence. That’s called fake news. The critics point out those who were on death row and were later proved to be innocent and that’s wonderful. But that does not prove that innocent people have been executed. It proves our less-than-perfect system does work. Everyone admits to the possibility of an innocent person being executed.

We live as imperfect beings in an imperfect world so there is a possibility that an innocent person has been or will be executed, but that is true in many areas of life. We must live with that possibility of death when permitting bungee jumping, riding in vehicles at theme parks, flying or jumping out of planes, etc. There is no doubt that if we dropped the speed limit to 40 miles per hour, we would save thousands of lives, but considering the public outcry and impact on the economy, we permit people to take the chance. Innocent people die in all the above scenarios–with state approval.

If leftists remove the death penalty and a convicted killer kills a prison guard, does the critic of the death penalty share some of the guilt? Or, if a killer escapes and kills again, does the critic of the death penalty bear some of the guilt for the additional killing? If not, why not? After all, we are told that if an innocent person is executed then those who support the death penalty are partly responsible for it. Why does the sword not cut in the both directions?

Often, in desperation, my death penalty opponents remind me that most nations have banned the death penalty as cruel and inhumane. I usually pause for a few seconds and say, “So?” When European nations were ruled by tyrants such as Hitler, Stalin, and Mussolini, the U.S. didn’t emulate them by looking for a home-grown dictator. So, why follow them in their folly now by abolishing a reasonable and scriptural tool for the sake of society? European nations are also collecting firearms from law-abiding citizens, and opening their borders to almost anyone. Should we follow them in those directions? I think not.

Why should taxpayers feed, clothe, lodge, and medically care for a convicted killer for 25 or more years while waiting for numerous appeals or to serve a life term that is not a life term? Why should Tessa’s killer live in air-conditioned comfort as he watches television and works out in an expensive gym? If a flawed judicial system gives him “life” in prison, it should be at hard, very hard labor doing repulsive work with any proceeds going to his victim’s family.

State officials had better get the message that we must feel safe in our homes, churches, cars, schools, and streets; or the seeds will be sown for anarchy, vigilante justice, and lynch law.

I am a bleeding-heart Christian Conservative, but I have a brain that tells me rebels to society must be punished. For the sake of society, killers must be executed. My tears are for the victim and future victims who will die because the state refuses to do its job.

Additionally, it is striking that most of the liberal newspapers are critical of the death penalty yet they applauded President Trump’s missile strikes in Syria in April of 2017. Eight out of ten of the largest U.S. newspapers supported the attacks although they are critical of the death penalty! Why is it acceptable to kill bad guys in Syria but wrong to kill bad guys in Sing Sing? And often, innocent people are killed in the air strikes. Leftists are not the best thinkers.

The position of executing teen killers is powerfully ridiculed on the one side and usually weakly defended on the other side. Society must act now because they are raising a generation of brutal, barbaric, and bloody killers without a conscience.

Jerry Falwell, Guilty Until Proven Innocent? Wed, 11 Dec 2019 18:29:45 +0000 Julius Caesar’s wife had to be above suspicion and despite the fact that she was acquitted of all charges of adultery brought against her before the high court of the empire, Caesar divorced her and cut her out of the loop of administrative officials. Actually, he said, “my wife ought not to even be under suspicion.”

Caesar was concerned about his career, not his wife’s adultery. He was a typical politician who threw his wife under the chariot to protect his own reputation. Whatever his motives, he was right in that he might not survive if he had been cuckolded especially by a lesser man. Of course, he was far from being pristine as proved by his affair with Cleopatra, the Queen of Egypt, who was thirty years younger than himself.

However, the principle of leaders being without suspicion is correct, and in spades for religious leaders.

No Christian leader should be accused of impropriety because of his lifestyle. He should live in private and public so that any charge against him is totally unfair, untrue, and even unbelievable. However, since evil people seek to justify their own wickedness by attacking others, Christian leaders should not think personal attacks unusual. Matthew 5:11 proclaims, “Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake.” The key word is falsely.

The left delights when they can point to inconsistencies in high profile Christians such as Jerry Falwell, President of Liberty University. However, a charge of guilt does not a conviction make. Falwell’s early support of President Trump made him a target by the left. Because of this, the numerous charges against Falwell and Liberty University are to be expected; however, like Caesar’s innocent wife, the critics have decided that Falwell is guilty even if he is innocent.

Just because Jerry may be guilty of one or some charges does not mean he is guilty of all charges.

Moreover, there is still residual hatred by the left because of his father’s stand against the LGBTQ crowd, same-sex “marriage,” abortion, and other leftist positions. The left was always frustrated because they couldn’t find Dr. Falwell guilty of immorality, inconsistency, or any impropriety.

So, since Dr. Falwell is no longer available, his son will do.

Jerry Falwell, Jr. has done an incredible job as president of Liberty University with assets of over 3 billion dollars and almost 2 billion in unrestricted endowment. Moreover, they have over 15,000 resident students and about 95,000 on line. Liberty University is almost a modern miracle.

However, the university and its President are under attack by many hotshot media moguls and a young writer and homosexual activist Brandon Ambrosino who received his education at Liberty! His stimulating, sensational, but speculative article has caused heartburn all over Liberty Mountain and in homes of Christians across the fruited plain.

This is one of many reasons why no homosexual should be accepted at any Christian school. Of course, there are many reasons why they should be rejected.

This latest attack, justified or not, was against the Falwell family, the university, and evangelical Christianity in my opinion. There were numerous charges in the Politico article and many major media outlets of nepotism, family feuds, naughty or racy photos of Jerry and/or his wife, giving political support to Trump’s candidacy in 2016 as payback for Trump’s lawyer effecting the destruction of the photos, fiduciary bungling, self-dealing in Liberty University construction projects, and Jerry Jr. with his wife and son dancing and drinking at a Florida nightclub.

After reading numerous media reports and many pages issued by Liberty University, I am convinced that the charges are a mixed bag. It is easy to find disgruntled former employees each with an axe to grind and plenty of God-hating writers to help grind them. That is my evaluation of some of the charges but I’m withholding judgment on other accusations until additional facts are revealed.

Any and all legitimate accusations made by haters or by friends should be faced and handled biblically and legally—remorse, repentance, and restitution. And the leaders should be removed from office if egregious enough. I have demanded the same from liberal university and church leaders and would be a hypocrite if I did not demand the same from my Baptist crowd.

As to the charges that Jerry has taken advantage of his position for financial rewards, Jerry said, “I have not personally benefited financially from…any…contractor’s work for Liberty University nor has any member of my family.” After review of those charges and Jerry’s answer, I believe him.

I contacted Jerry himself for some explanations of the other accusations since he would demand an explanation from any of his students so charged. Will he answer the accusations with full and factual answers?

Time will tell.

Promises by Prominent Progressives Produce Panic in Party! Fri, 06 Dec 2019 16:59:34 +0000 Thinking Democrats (the few remaining in a dying party) are panicking after hearing all their presidential candidates make promises to “give away the store” in their attempt to purchase votes. If those candidates had a family of cannibals in their district, they would promise to provide them missionaries for Sunday dinner.

Such action is comparable to the oldest profession in the world—you give me what I want and I’ll give you what you want. Shallow non-thinkers will give their votes to receive college loan forgiveness, free tuition, total gun confiscation, big tax increase, free medical care even for illegal aliens, open borders resulting in total dismantling of our culture, and on and on and on.

It is shocking that a major political party has devolved into a radical, internationalist (globalist) entity. That is not just political backsliding; it is apostasy!

Moreover, anyone with any knowledge of the old Democrats know they would be appalled at the vile lifestyles many progressive Democrats exhibit and almost all defend.

Willing to prostitute themselves without shame, the leading candidates have promised the voters they would reduce the prison population by 50% or even shut down prisons. Ignoring the Second Amendment, they will confiscate all guns thereby making it easier for the released criminals to prey on innocent people. Of course, those Democrats will not have to worry about criminals being a threat to them since they live in safe, secluded, and secure communities.

Democrats will destroy the “wall” or make it impossible to finish it and follow the demand of those illegal aliens, “No borders, no walls, no USA at all!” That is the desired goal of the globalists—no border control which always results in anarchy and massive violence in city streets where police do nothing. This has been observed many times with Antifa, Black Lives Matter, etc. One Congresswoman of color wants to shut down police departments!

Every state will be a “sanctuary” state where illegal aliens will have freedom from prosecution, however heinous the crime. They want a “sanctuary nation” where laws are meaningless.

Democrats tell us that anyone has a right to live in the U.S. but no sane person believes that. When an illegal alien arrives in the U.S., all the freebies will come with no strings attached. Ever hear of a bankrupt nation?

There will be free college for all, even illegal aliens. I suppose the professors will work pro bono. There will be free cell phones since everyone has a right to communicate. If anyone is taking requests, I’ll take a Rolls-Royce Phantom. I know it costs $450,000 but I deserve it. Oh, well, I want it.

Transgenderism is now the magic word that will open any door. Any person, whatever his/her biology may scream that he/she/it has a right to declare himself/herself/itself of the opposite gender. Small children have a right to decide whether they are male or female and any person of any age and gender has a right to enter any restroom or locker room of the opposite sex. When some sane person criticizes that insanity, he or she is considered a hater, bigot, and worse.

It seems the Democrats are going to protect everyone’s right to be or do anything they want. Well, unless you happen to be a Christian, Republican, armed, normal, white man! If you complain about unfair, unequal, and unconstitutional treatment, don’t expect a fair hearing from the Supreme Court since the last two members will be dragged from the Court and tarred and feathered.

We have been promised that those who pretend to be of the opposite gender can receive hormone treatments and sex-change surgery—at taxpayers expense. Including any prisoners who may still be incarcerated. After all, a major Democrat candidate declared, “Black trans, nonbinary people are the ‘backbone of our democracy.’” I’ll bet you didn’t know that.

Pelosi told her constituents in California that Democrats would repeal and replace the Republican tax package and some taxpayers might be taxed more than 100% of their income! I think most sane people would think that is confiscation so how many wealthy citizens would put up with that? And what will those Democrats do when wealthy businessmen pull up and move their money and businesses outside the U.S.?

Democrats have promised everything except a depression which will come if they get elected.

We are told that every citizen has a right to a guaranteed income whether they work or not. No accountability will be required. The Apostle Paul disagreed writing that if any would not work, “neither should he eat.” Politicians, who want to give away everything including a guaranteed wage without guaranteed work, don’t ask the right questions. Like mice who die in mousetraps never ask themselves just why the cheese is free.

The First and Second Amendment will be gone because no one should ever be offended by unwanted speech. Radical leftists don’t want to control the debate; they want to eliminate the debate. It is embarrassing to the leftists when they can’t answer a Conservative, so they want to live in an atmosphere where they never have to hear the other side of an argument.

The fascists want to totally control your life—free abortions up to and even after birth; euthanasia upon demand; forced-fed ideologies in the public school system from age three through university; forced vaccinations even if you are convinced some vaccines are dangerous, debilitating, even deadly. You will get a flu shot even if it kills you—and it may.

Since climate change will kill everyone in less than 12 years, all coal, gas, and nuclear power will be eliminated so the electric bills will soar. Your power usage for heat and air will be controlled. Leftists held a funeral for a glacier “killed by climate change,” something to remember when you really feel dumb.

All Blacks will receive reparations to compensate for the years of slavery even though trillions have been paid in all kinds of welfare over the past 50 years. In the year 2050, academics and pundits will be asking, “Was the Second Civil War really fought over the reparations issue?”

A leading presidential candidate wants to take money from Israel and send it to Hamas, a designated terrorist group! And some of the biggest contributors to the Democrats are Jews—any Jew who supports such Democrats is dumb as a box of rocks. After all, Jews can be dummies like anyone else.

If Democrats get elected to the House, Senate, and the White House, everyone will get $15.00 or more minimum wage. So, plan on paying $10.00 instead of $3.00 for a .50-cent hamburger.

No matter who the Democrats choose as their candidate, he or she is a devoted Socialist, committed to killing free enterprise, so they will steal all the golden eggs and kill the golden goose that laid them. Of course, intelligent Democrats are dazed and dazzled but not deceived by this pandering to the lowest denominator.

Rather than simply be embarrassed, all principled Democrats should leave the party.

In 2020, look for the biggest Democrat defeat since Ronald Reagan beat Walter Mondale in 1984 when he only won his home state of Minnesota.

There was another empire that promised bread and circuses to the parasites, and ended up with brutes, bandits, and barbarians beating down the gates of Rome.

You do remember Rome, don’t you!

OK, Trump Has Done Wrong But Not Nearly as Bad as Lincoln! Wed, 27 Nov 2019 14:44:39 +0000 No one is perfect except maybe your wife’s long dead husband; so it is a given: Trump has slipped, stumbled, and sprawled himself all over the White House lawn. However, the Trump-haters blame him for everything except maybe the kidnapping of the Lindbergh baby!

According to the ravings of the radical media, Trump was responsible for the homosexual, lackluster actor Jussie Smollett’s fiasco in Chicago. Even when it turned out to be a hoax, Trump was still blamed for the “toxic environment” he had generated.

When the stock market sinks, Trump is blamed; but when it soars, it is a result of Obama’s “great” economic policies.

The media did not laugh when Barbara Bush blamed Trump for her heart attack.

The loonies on the left blamed Trump for the synagogue shooting in Pittsburgh; so Trump is a violent anti-Semite who moved the U.S. Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, has Jewish grandchildren, and is a personal friend to Israel’s Prime Minister.

Trump is to be applauded for many astounding successes but can be blamed (at least partly) for a failure of a health care program his first year; slowness of handling illegal immigration; excessive and abusive language; and rudeness, crudeness, and lewdness. As to demanding a quid pro quo for financial aid, that should always be true!

Even if Trump was excessive or illegal in his dealing with Ukraine, it was not nearly as bad as Lincoln’s illegal attacks on the U. S. Constitution.

Yet, the media, academics, and radical politicians almost drown in their own bile while raging against Trump as they serenely worship at Lincoln’s feet of clay.

Lincoln is always listed in the top three of American presidents; however, only historians and history buffs know the reality of his actions that make Trump look like a wimp. In 1861, Lincoln, fearing that southern troops might overtake Washington, declared martial law in Maryland and suspended habeas corpus, a power reserved only to the U.S. Congress.

Habeas corpus guarantees that no citizen can be held in jail without a hearing of the charges against him. That precious principle evolved from the Magna Carta in 1215 when English barons demanded protection from King John and future tyrants. The act also provided that all kings (or Presidents) were subject to the rule of law.

Lincoln wrongly thought he was an exception.

Lincoln arrested southern sympathizer John Merryman who challenged his military incarceration at Fort McHenry; consequently, Chief Justice Roger Taney (pronounced Tawney) declared that Lincoln had acted illegally. Lincoln ignored his order and continued to arrest and imprison his opponents in other states without a hearing.

Lincoln ordered General Cadwallader, Commander at Fort McHenry, to bring Merryman to court. The general (who answered to the President) refused, and the Court ordered a federal marshal to bring the accused and the general to court.

Justice Taney issued a famous opinion on Lincoln’s actions and sent a copy to Lincoln who ordered the arrest of the Chief Justice! Oops, Lincoln must have forgotten about the separation of powers. The arrest warrant was never delivered by the U. S. Federal Marshall.

In contrast, Trump used his power to propose, protect, and promote Brett Kavanagh as a candidate for the Supreme Court from untrue, unsavory, and unproven accusations.

The U. S. Supreme Court’s decision to overturn the suspension of habeas corpus angered and embarrassed President Lincoln. When Chief Justice Taney clearly, correctly, and concisely said that Lincoln broke the law, the President decided to arrest the top jurist but abandoned his plan!

Lincoln suspended habeas corpus again in 1863 and 1864 to the chagrin of freedom lovers. The New York Tribune, a newspaper hostile to Lincoln, rejoiced (as did many editors) over his assassination declaring, “the reign of lawless despotism has ended.”

President Lincoln, not Trump, closed hundreds of Northern newspapers that criticized him or his policies. Many journalists lost their jobs and were jailed by the president! Trump only ridicules them and gives them silly names.

Maryland was a Union state yet Lincoln sent Union soldiers, without warrants, to confiscate weapons from law-abiding citizens although the Second Amendment made that illegal. Trump is a promoter of the rights of all Americans to protect their homes and persons.

Lincoln suspended the rights of the American people to not be prosecuted without evidence when he arrested hundreds of Maryland citizens who had any association to the Southern cause. He even arrested most of the Maryland state legislature, the Baltimore city council, the police commissioner of Baltimore, the city’s mayor, and thousands of other prominent Maryland citizens. Many of them were illegally placed in military prisons for years although totally innocent.

So, Lincoln arrested more than 14,000 (the Columbia Law Review says 38,000) political prisoners; suppressed more than 300 newspapers, arrested and imprisoned numerous legislators, defied a Supreme Court decision, and is loved by all. But the hatred for Trump is incredible, irrational, and almost insane demonstrating that the more society drifts away from the truth, the more it will hate those who speak truth.

The media hypocrites fawn over Lincoln and curse Trump blaming him for sun spots, cancer, dandruff, climate change, and scurvy.

Since burning at the stake has gone out of fashion, Trump-haters must be satisfied with distorting every position, delaying every appointment, dishonestly reporting every interview, and deriding every tweet.

Anything to undo the 2016 election. Great statesmen, those Democrats who never raise a voice against Lincoln’s unquestioned illegal activities!

Voters Have a Right to Know If Pete Buttigieg is A Phony Christian! Thu, 21 Nov 2019 04:08:43 +0000 Since Pete Buttigieg is the most vocal “Christian” in the Democrat presidential race, he should stop his fuzzy, fractured even false references to the Bible. Principled Christians resent having the Bible twisted like a pretzel to prove a false point of view.

Even the media is sarcastically calling him “St. Pete” because of his many biblical references and his talk of morality. A Federalist article really pegged him rightly when they wrote about his speaking of morality: “But someone who lives in sexual immorality and supports abortion right up until birth is quite obviously the wrong person to do it.”

Bingo! they nailed him to a post.

Voters want to know if Pete is a genuine Christian or simply a church member. Does he really believe that Christ is the Way, the Truth, and the Life? If not, he is a professor but not a possessor making him a pretender. That means he is using Christianity for self-aggrandizement. If he is not a sheep, he is a wolf in sheep’s skin.

Pete could be similar to Julian the Apostate who, according to Will Durant in his eleven volume History of Civilization, “conformed in all externals to the Christian worship, and even read the Scriptures publicly in church.” Julian was the Roman Emperor from 361 to 363 and was the last non-Christian emperor. Frankly very few of them were true Christians, including Constantine. Julian was from a long line of “Christians” who had been corrupted by a corrupt Christianity. He was an unannounced pagan (at the time) while reading the Bible in church!

Of course, there are plenty of pompous pagans in the pulpits in our day.

Even an apostate can do some things right as proved by Julian’s dismissal of thousands of servants, eunuchs, and superfluous government officials. He also slashed taxes and streamlined administrative procedures. Julian established the principle that a man was presumed innocent until proven guilty. He was the first political leader to take that position to my knowledge.

Julian was a pagan who practiced animal sacrifices while heading up the “Christian” empire, attempting to revive paganism to replace the quickly advancing paganized Christianity!

Could Pete be philosophically related to Julian the Apostate?

Desperately trying to sound normal, Pete has promised he “would bring Christianity back to the White House if he were elected president.” Well, “Christianity” is not something that can be toted around. It is a faith, “the evidence of things not seen.” Pete said, “Faith doesn’t have to be something to divide us.” But faith does divide us since some believe the Muslim faith, others the Hindu faith, others the Christian faith. Christ said Luke 12:51 “Suppose ye that I am come to give peace on earth? I tell you, Nay; but rather division.” And only a fool or fanatic says all faiths are equal or that one is as good as another.

Christ divides light from darkness, truth from error, and good from bad; however, radicals don’t like such absolutes.

I see Pete as a man who has rejected biblical standards as well as common decency and is using biblical language to confuse shallow voters and steal their votes with his deception.

Pete went on to decry Georgia’s abortion law where they have male politicians telling a woman “what she ought to do with her body.” No, if a woman had made the right decisions about her body she would have stayed out of bed, kept her knees together and yelled, “no.” Failing to do that, she wants to kill the innocent child. And Pete wants to guarantee her that right. Surely an innocent child’s right to live is far more precious than a woman’s right to slip into her form-fitting evening gown for a night on the town—something a pregnant body would make cumbersome.

When Pete and his “husband” move into the White House, he will provide an example to people “who are guided by a faith tradition in making their decisions about what they think is right and wrong.” However, he does not tell us the standard that will be used to make those decisions.

If the Bible is used, then Pete and his “husband” would not be in the White House or any house since sodomy is clearly condemned in the Bible as the most gross and shameless act of depravity.

Are Christians “on the wrong side of history” as to LGBTQ issues as Pete told CNN? Is Pete totally unaware of history? Sodomy has been known as the sin (and crime) “against nature”; “that unspeakable sin”; “that unmentionable vice;” and “crime without a name.”

While Pete is now promising to bring Christianity “back to the White House,” he was critical of Vice-President Pence for actually doing that. Of Pence, Pete said, he was “fanatical.” Pence, not wanting to be tarred and feathered by the LGBTQ crowd said of Pete, “I see him as a dedicated public servant and a patriot.”

While Pence is a kind, decent, and good man, he is not a committed warrior in support of truth. He is also a politician.

Pete is not aware that a homosexual is at war not only with himself, but with his Maker. He must not know the Bible truth about homosexuality that has been confirmed by all religions since the beginning of time—perversion will destroy a society. You may have noticed, they are no longer gay in Sodom.

Why can’t people believe that perversion is wrong without being haters, bigots, and homophobes? Even if one agrees that criticism of LGBTQ positions is bigotry, why can’t Pete’s crowd be tolerant of the intolerant?

Or, is tolerance a one-way-street?

However, Pete suggests that he will use the Bible (but not Leviticus or Romans) to guide him in making decisions. He will use some of the “safer” commands of Christ such as “For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat.” However, what Pete doesn’t know is that Christ was speaking to persons, not governments. It is people who are to have compassion and reach into their purse and feed the hungry and take in the stranger. It has nothing to do with government action at any level. To make it otherwise is a perversion of truth.

Governments are in place to protect the liberties of the citizens from internal and external threats, not feed us, house us, cloth us, suckle us, regulate us, educate us, or provide health care.

But then, Government must have some excuse to take what we produce so they provide all the goodies that people are too lazy to provide for themselves.

Pete implied that if God belonged to a political party, it wouldn’t be the Republican party. And neither would it be the Democrat Party; after all, God was booed at the last Democrat convention! No, Christ would overturn their conference tables, rip the microphones out of their outlets, break their television cameras, and whip the whole crowd (with few exceptions) out of Washington.

Pete has castigated Conservative Christians for supporting Trump, suggesting that we approve of his unseemly actions. Yet, Pete expects the voters to elect him when he doesn’t even know what is natural, acceptable, and biblical by slipping between the sheets with another man.

Pete talks about Christianity but he speaks of a false, pagan religion totally unknown to the Scriptures.

I am viciously attacked for my stand against baby killing and all forms of perversion by the same people who believe Bruce Jenner is a woman, males can use female restrooms, a person is whatever gender he or she desires, Blacks can’t be racists, Elvis is still alive, and believe two people of the same gender make up a family—so my critics aren’t the best thinkers on planet Earth.
