For a considerable time I have noticed some of the Christian Churches surrendering their beliefs and running up the white flags of surrender. One of the recent articles talked of churches changing their bylaws that reject church sponsored Homosexual marriages, as they feared legal reprisal from Government supported Homosexual Activists. That fear is not totally unfounded – just recently a New Mexico photography business lost a lawsuit over refusing to photograph a homosexual commitment ceremony. It is not clear if they will take it to the next level as the activist judge in the case also slapped the photography studio with the plaintiffs law fees.
If a church of any denomination actually believes that homosexual cohabitation is acceptable under the teaching of the bible – I feel that is their right to teach and act in a manner that follows that belief. But I also believe that the overwhelming majority of churches of the Judeo-Christian philosophy have always believed and still do interpret the Christian Scripture as disavowing homosexual relationships. So it is also their legal right to teach and act in a manner which reflects those beliefs. The churches in the above article are stated non believers concerning Christian homosexual relationships. Yet they run up the white flag of surrender out of fear created by an oppressive government and legal system. I not only question their decision to change bylaws but also their commitment to the Christian Religion. That grows from weak faith and even weaker leadership.
When other groups are pushed by the government they balk, rally and stand up in unison for their rights. Lately Christians just run and hide sometimes changing their beliefs from fear not commitment to cause. Until Christians standup for their right to serve God, as the large group that they are, the Christian Church risks making themselves irrelevant with Government, people looking for direction and the God they serve.

I do not know the origins or whom to give credit for the work of the following post that I found posted on Facebook. But I do find the content rings true of the discontent felt towards the mainstream media by conservative leaning citizens.
A Harley Biker is riding by the zoo in Washington, DC when he sees a little girl leaning into the lion’s cage. Suddenly, the lion grabs her by the collar of her jacket and tries to pull her inside to slaughter her, under the eyes of her screaming parents. The biker jumps off his Harley, runs to the cage and hits the lion square on the nose with a powerful punch. Whimpering from the pain the lion jumps back letting go of the girl, and the biker brings her to her terrified parents, who thank him endlessly. A reporter has watched the whole event. The reporter addressing the Harley rider says, ‘Sir, this was the most gallant and brave thing I’ve seen a man do in my whole life.’ The Harley rider replies, ‘Why, it was nothing, really, the lion was behind bars. I just saw this little kid in danger and acted as I felt right.’ The reporter says, ‘Well, I’ll make sure this won’t go unnoticed. I’m a journalist, you know, and tomorrow’s paper will have this story on the front page… So, what do you do for a living and what political affiliation do you have?’ The biker replies, “I’m a U.S. Marine and a Republican.” The journalist leaves. The following morning the biker buys the paper to see if it indeed brings news of his actions, and reads, on the front page: U.S. MARINE ASSAULTS AFRICAN IMMIGRANT AND STEALS HIS LUNCH! …and THAT pretty much sums up the media’s approach to the news these days…
When I was a kid, teachers were mostly revered individuals that parents could entrust their kids development and future life. I still have occasional contact with some of my past teachers. In modern times the image of teachers has taken a beating as too many teachers get caught acting more like depraved cultists worshiping Bacchus - rather than someone you would trust educating our youth. A recent eye-widening revelation by the media, is that as many as 40,000 public school teachers (I want to assume this is an inflated number) could be using the website SeekingArrangement’s, searching for a Sugardaddy. Huh? :shock: So I have to question are teachers evolving into thrill seekers like the teacher in Mr. Goodbar or just paving a new path towards the golddigger lifestyle? Is there any wonder I continue to hear the clamor of parents demanding a school voucher system and/or choosing home schooling options.
Al Qaeda decimated, not decimated does anybody have an answer that is not politically motivated. The Five discuss the current Terrorist Chatter Threat and the US response:
Proof positive evidence that the ability to parrot language does not always yield a higher intelligent life form.
Are traditional colleges progressively evolving their way extinction? An article by Danielle Allen suggests an Internet college revolution of the higher education realms has started with Online colleges supplanting some of the traditional college opportunities. With the skyrocketing costs of more traditional college options, the less expensive Online options are certainly more attractive to the modest income based students. A big worry is that her article stated only about 10% make it through the program. Now that does not surprise me, especially for the under 21 students. Most people that age that I have known were more interested in partying and sowing wild oats, than studying. That makes online studies demanding to those individuals that lack the discipline needed to study with very limited supervision. But a huge part of advanced college work is a test for individuals to exhibit they have enough initiative to succeed with minimal supervision. Another conundrum to consider; is will Online courses make it easier or more difficult for scumbags from terrorist organizations -like Bill Ayers- to corrupt young minds with messages of hatred and Anti-Americanism. I personally don’t think Online classes are for everyone or for every subject – at this time. But since traditional colleges seem to be devolving into Animal House paradigms; Online colleges may actually evolve into a better selection for the more industrious students.

Up the Nanny States Nose with a Rubber Hose , we grew up with out you -
Stupid is as Stupid Does–>
There is really nothing else for me to comment about that idiotic hate-poster!
Actual racism is unacceptable behavior. That said there is racism in everyday life and there will always be racism in everyday life. Look around closely and you will find racism: White on Black, Black on White, White on Hispanic, Hispanic on White, Black on Hispanic, Hispanic on Black and everybody seems to find a reason to demean Asians. But to weed out any actual racist behavior that might be fixable –> society must first has be willing to quit crying wolf every time someone attempts to play the race card over tragic incidents. Yet self-serving individuals like Al “Cry Wolf” Sharpton continue to flame the fires of faux racism surrounding the Travon Martin incident – thus demeaning the actual tragedy. The real heartbreak is that two young men misunderstood each others intentions and one of them ended up killed. The real question is – why? The truth is – we will never actually know. And that is another tragedy in the making. But as long as race baiters are given credence by the government, the media and the people of the communities to create racist incidents from every interracial clash – society will suffer. Hate is all around us. You can either feed it or douse the flame – not both.
