Last Sunday, the Washington Post’s ombudsman casually revealed that the official policy of reporters at the paper is to treat opponents of gay marriage as the moral equivalent of racists. Addressing the complaint that the paper is a propaganda sheet for gay activists, ombudsman Patrick Pexton disclosed an e-mail exchange between a reader and a Post reporter. The reader had asked the reporter why the paper covers the gay marriage debate so one-sidedly. “The reason that legitimate media outlets routinely cover gays is because it is the civil rights issue of our time.
Gays have the same rights as you and I--the "right" to enter into marriage with a person of the opposite gender. What gay activists want (and as supported by the LeftMedia in a wholly biased way) is a special "right"--to marry whoever they want, irrespective of gender. There is no real necessity for this, as civil unions and domestic partnerships today provide almost equivalent benefits and rights as civil marriage. And what small gaps remain can readily be corrected by legislation. But, NO, it HAS TO BE GAY MARRIAGE. Anything else is unacceptable to them, because it makes them "2ND class citizens." Rubbish. This is all about forcing the 95% heterosexual population to accept and embrace homosexuality as a normal, accepted lifestyle. And in so doing, destroy marriage. Already there are activists clamoring for open marriages with multiple partners, marriages with animals, and legalized bigamy. This is a reversion of 3000 years of human development and back to barbarism.
Thank you, #1, yes, and not sexist either, although libertards are always ready to denounce Christianity for having restrictions on female clerics. Liberal sects of Christianity, many of whom don´t even adhere to Biblical Salvation as, "Faith alone in Christ alone," are all too willing to blasphemously anoint lesbians as "Priests" just to appease their liberal master, Satan. Judeo-Christianity is the only "religion" to give women equal rights under the law.
America today is the new Rome. And just as the early Christians were persecuted under the Roman Caesars, so we will likely face persecution here too both by the government and many people. But as the Lord said: "...the one who endures to the end will be saved."
Only a person raised with no religion would think Christians are the same as racists. I have left the fold but have no animosity toward that religion. Jesus (Joshua) taught the best way for human beings to live with each other. There is no doubt of that and anybody who thinks otherwise is ignorant of His teachings.
Those who today criticize Christians are going to miss us when we are gone and they can rule this world with Satanic power instead of God´s true Love/Grace.
Those who are real Christians love everyone. It is the actions that are ungodly as stated in the Bible, God´s Holy Word. We do not condemn, but challenge them to know God and let Him reveal Himself, thus establishing His Word within, becoming His child in this world.
All sin is denying God His place in your life, obeying Him because He created us, loves us, wants us to be be with Him forever in His Heaven!
Satan is still active in the mind/heart/soul/spirit of those unwilling to obey God.
We need to appreciate each other but also there is good and evil, right and wrong.
We love our children, but we do discipline them when their actions are not acceptable for they selfishly seek their own way or even just to make themselves known as independent, yet want the privileges of being in a family.
We need to pray for America! God has blessed up beyond our dreams and now we disavow any relationship because sadly, we think we know better than He does.
Heaven will not be a democracy. Jesus will be crowned King and Lord.
As was once stated: This is the only hell Christians will ever know and this is also the only Heaven unbelievers will ever see!
In today´s America, being called a Christian is worse than being called a racist. Christians are not just racist, they are everything that is evil, according to most on the Left and many Moderates as well. As Dr Lucado says "God is good. I need help. They need help. Thanks". 10 word prayer that sums up the Bible.
I´m annoyed that so many Hollywood celebrities hate the system that made them rich. Actor/comedian Russell Brand told the BBC he wants "a socialist, egalitarian system based on the massive redistribution of wealth." Director George Lucas got rich not just from movies but also by selling Star Wars merchandise. Yet he says he believes in democracy but "not capitalist democracy." Actor Martin Sheen says, "That´s where the problem lies ... It´s corporate America." And so on. On my TV show, actor/author Kevin Sorbo pointed out that such sentiments make little sense coming from entertainers. "It´s a very entrepreneurial business.
We´ve all seen selfies taken in questionable places. During a school lockdown. In front of a man attempting suicide. At Auschwitz. Now, some people are adding President Obama to the list of people with poor selfie judgment after the leader of the free world posed with British Prime Minister David Cameron and Danish Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt at Nelson Mandela’s memorial service Tuesday in South Africa. It appears from photos of the incident that Obama was not the instigator (that distinction goes to Thorning-Schmidt). But he seems to have participated happily, though First Lady Michelle Obama seemed unimpressed by the whole spectacle.
In Texas, we say this:"Just because a chicken has wings doesn´t mean it can fly." The translation is that "appearances are deceptive." In other words, you can call it affordable but that does not mean that it is affordable. According to The NY Times, there is a little screaming going on when people check out the affordability of the Affordable Health Care Act: "Until now, it was almost impossible for people using the federal health care website to see the deductible amounts, which consumers pay before coverage kicks in. But federal officials finally relented last week and added a "window shopping" feature
Health insurance enrollment in at least one state appears to be picking up. Colorado’s state-based insurance exchange Connect for Colorado announced on Monday that more than 5,000 new customers have purchased private insurance since November 30, increasing the state’s total enrollment numbers in private plans by more than 50 percent. (Snip)But if current trends continue, the exchange may have an age problem. Demographic information released at the end of November shows the makeup of the exchange so far skews much older than federal officials have targeted.
With all the many lies and obfuscations perpetrated by this White House the one about whether the president knew or had met his “Uncle Omar” was a relatively minor one. Still it speaks volumes about how this administration — which obsesses in public about “transparency” — really operates. Onyango Obama had been living in Massachusetts illegally since the 1970s (a judge granted him legal resident status just last week). When he was arrested in 2011 for DUI and told police “I think I will call the White House,” media outlets asked the White House if the two men had ever met.
I owe Mitt Romney an apology. During the 2012 Republican presidential primary season, I repeatedly criticized Romney — and personally challenged him during his editorial board meeting with the Washington Examiner — for promising that if elected, on day one of his presidency, he would grant Obamacare waivers to all 50 states. As I reported, under the text of the law, the ability to offer waivers to states was subject to many restrictions and wouldn’t even be an option until 2017, four years after his hypothetical swearing in. Though I still believe I was right about what the statute said,
One interesting, but not always precisely reliable, measure of partisan preference is what pollsters call the generic vote -- which party´s candidates people would vote for in elections to the House of Representatives. Over the past two decades, responses have tended to underpredict Republicans´ performance in subsequent elections, though that was the case more in 1992-2002 than recently. The last two months have seen sharp shifts in the generic vote, as National Journal´s Charlie Cook notes, with Democrats peaking during the government shutdown in the first half of October and then a sharp swing to Republicans after the spotlight shifted
When I was a kid, I knew two different Santa Clauses. The first had a fat belly, rosy cheeks, a long white beard, and skin as pink as bubble gum. He was omnipresent, visiting my pre-school and the local mall, visible in all of my favorite Christmas specials. Then there was the Santa in my family’s household, in the form of ornaments, cards, and holiday figurines. A near-carbon copy of the first one—big belly, rosy cheeks, long white beard: check, check, check. But his skin was as dark as mine. Seeing two different Santas was bewildering. Eventually I asked my father what
US President Barack Obama may have moved the masses attending Nelson Mandela’s memorial service with his stirring eulogy, but it was his grinning "selfie" with the Danish and British premiers that set social networks abuzz. In a candid moment captured by a photographer, Denmark’s Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt can be seen holding up her smartphone, with Obama lending a helping hand, as they pose for a picture with David Cameron, all three of them smiling broadly in their seats at Soweto’s World Cup stadium.(Snip)Mashable, the news and technology website, ran the photograph under the headline: ‘‘Dear Obama: Funerals are no place
Johannesburg - A man who provided sign language interpretation on stage for Nelson Mandela´s memorial service, attended by scores of heads of state, was a "fake," the national director of the Deaf Federation of South Africa said on Tuesday. Asked about the claim by The Associated Press, South Africa´s government said it was preparing a statement. Three sign language experts said the man was not signing in South African or American sign languages. South African sign language covers all of the country´s 11 official languages, according to the federation. It wasn´t immediately clear if the unidentified man was using a
On his way to the podium at the memorial ceremony for former South African president Nelson Mandela, President Obama walked down the line of dignitaries, greeting other leaders there to pay their respects. Among the hands shaken: that of Cuban leader Raul Castro. Obama neither made a special effort to shake Castro’s hand nor to avoid him. A snub might have been awkward: In his speech, Obama praised Mandela’s “greatest gift” as “his recognition that we are all bound together in ways that can be invisible to the eye; that there is a oneness to humanity; that we achieve ourselves by
House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) snapped at conservative groups that have come out in opposition to the budget deal reached Wednesday between Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.). "They´re using the American people for their own purposes. This is ridiculous," Boehner said at a press conference with other members of House Republican leadership on Wednesday. Over the past few days, a number of conservative groups have blasted the deal because it sets discretionary spending levels in the budget higher than previous levels under sequestration. In the past three days, the influential Heritage Action, Club for Growth, Americans
A black fashion student says he was brutally attacked by a gang of Hasidic men who shouted anti-gay slurs at him while he was walking through Williamsburg after a night of partying, the Daily News has learned. Taj Patterson, 22, was headed home to Fort Greene around 4:30 a.m. on Dec. 1 when he says more than a dozen ultra-Orthodox Jewish men began assaulting him on Flushing Ave. and yelling, “Stay down, f----t!”
A “presidential selfie” featuring President Barack Obama, British Prime Minister David Cameron, and Denmark’s Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt at Nelson Mandela’s memorial service began making the rounds this morning, but it’s the person not included in the frame who caught everyone’s attention: As anyone with two eyes and a Twitter account has noticed, Michelle Obama does not appear amused. Of course, though a picture says a thousand words, not all of those words are necessarily true. FLOTUS might not have even known the photo was taking place. Or she could disapprove of funeral selfies. Either way.
