Gretchen Carlson Moved To Tears
As Huckabee Urges America: ‘Quit
Being Ashamed That We Believe In God’

Mediaite, by Noah Rothman

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 12/17/2012 10:33:24 AM

Fox News Host Mike Huckabee moved Fox & Friends host Gretchen Carlson to tears on Monday in a discussion about God and religion in the wake of the mass murder in Connecticut on Friday. After saying that no one “should be surprised” by the attack because schools have become a place free of religion, Huckabee softened his tone. He said that Americans should no longer be ashamed of their belief in a higher power and turn to morality before the tragedy rather than after. (Snip) “I’m not suggesting by any stretch that if we had prayer in

Comments:
I might not always agree with Huckabee, but what he said this morning was absolutely correct. I have been fearful that some of the vile leftists will start complaining about all the references to God after this horrible tragedy.

Yes, we should not be ashamed that we believe in God and I think the war on the Christian religion should stop. We need to affirm that we are a Christian nation and defend that nation by restricting Muslims to visitor status only.

However, this has nothing to do with the recent shootings. The gunman was insane, not disbelieving.

As a practicing Christian, I have not always agreed with the way Huckabee portrays himself in politics. But on this one I definitely agree. Christians need to ´man up´ and tell seculars to back off and stop attacking us for our faith. Jesus stood against evil for our sake. We can do no less now can we?

We are currently seeing the results of secular behaviour that has been a part of our national culture for decades.

Nature abhors a vacuum.

I´ll never understand why the majority (God fearing Believers) allow the small % of the population to force us to remove God and any references to God from the public forum. Since the atheists believe in nothing, why should they be offended. They worship nothing and one day they will be rewarded with nothing.

Tell the ACLU to leave, go away, vanish. They do nothing except foment trouble and strife...but perhaps that´s their charge.

Tell the churches and pastors that it is time to read God´s word and follow God´s word.....not just interpret the Bible to fit their own desires and the secular-progressive agenda. Some denominations have wandered away from biblical teachings and have instituted their own teachings. Time to stand up and be counted for something.

The remedy for safety from one another has always been and will always be the living of higher laws. Mankind always looks for the new solutions which usually restate the same old worldy solutions that do not work. When we become a moral society, then these problems will disappear. If we keep in the same direction, the consequences will follow.

Fear of God has prevented many a person from doing terrible harm. Judgement by fellow citizens helps to keep a society civil and encourages positive behavior. There will always be the tug of war between good and evil. Many today no longer know right from wrong. The "do it if it feels good," me generation is in position of power. All the "diversity" and "politically correct" BS has succeeded (as it was intended)in dividing our nation. After all...nobody wants to hurt anyone´s feelings, right? Presently we have an un_American lying, lawless,divisive President. Bad behavior and indecent acts,(ala Bill Clinton)are accepted by society,elected officials who will not or cannot work together for the good of their country, worship of self and celebrity,the devaluing of human life,the unwillingness to punish illegal immigrants yet we don´t encourage assimilation, destroying the American economy, devaluing marriage, marginalizing Christian religion,dissing the founders of this great nation and ignoring our beautiful Constitution. Our children see all this happening and yet are expected to grow up healthy in mind, body and soul. Is it any wonder they are confused about right and wrong and good and evil and bereft of moral covictions? America is indeed in decline as it is being destroyed from within. It´s so clear yet so many are in denial or simply don´t care. Governor Huckabee is correct in his assessment.

How many see the significance of the actions today compared to when Jesus was born. Herod heard that a prophecy was to come true of a King (Jesus) being born. The Wise Men saw a star and followed it. They were summoned to Herod, asked to return when they found the King so Herod could worship Him too. Of course, he wanted to kill him. When they did not return, Herod had all male babies/children two years and under killed. Satan has again attacked our children, who will carry on God´s legacy for the human race.

Obama, in his speech, sought "again" to cause confusion/division amongst the people.

He thinks he is able to do what only God can do!

We need a heart trasfusion of God´s Love/Grace, His ability to draw US together in His Word that defines who we are, what we are capable of with His aid/intervention.

America is in need of God´s mercy, His true Love/Grace that gave His only-begotten Son so that we might one day enjoy His PEACE/LOVE/JOY!

pray for America! We are at a crossroad that will lead to freedom or tyranny!

God save the nation - US!

Yet more symptoms of a PC nation gone awry. Not PC to talk about mental illness, not PC to talk about God and religion.

But, oh, how the misty presidential tears and prayers flowed. When it was too late. How about before the fact, presidential role model? At those evaded prayer breakfasts every year? That we are not a Christian nation, yet, history dispoves your lying lips.

Well, someone brought a gun to the knife fight, president role model misty tears. You provoked a challenge, then hide behind a false Christianity because it was a great photo op.

I have always believed, and have taught both of my children, that faith is believing in something when common sense tells you not to. On Friday, I couldn´t wait to hold my children and tell them how much I love them. They are 19 and supposedly independent but, they both just let me cry and hold them tight. They both knew that their mom needed them so very much that day. When tragedies of this magnitude happen, I HAVE to hang onto my faith. It´s sometimes all I have to get me through without running screaming into the street.

Following up last weekend’s official White House photo of President Obama talking on the phone with Russian President Vladimir Putin, the administration today released another phone photo, this one of a conversation with French President Francois Hollande. This one comes from Key Largo, Fla., where Obama is spending the weekend before returning to Washington to host a reception Monday for the 2012 and 2013 NCAA Division I Men’s and Women’s Champions before moving on to fundraising events Tuesday. “The President welcomed the strong, unified stance of the United States and the European Union regarding Russia’s military intervention in Ukraine, including

While IRS officials were targeting Tea Party groups for special scrutiny of their 501(c)3 tax exempt applications, the IRS also hired a policeman who had been prosecuted by the Justice Department — and convicted in federal court — of using his access to the FBI’s NCIC system to tip off a terror suspect about the bureau’s surveillance. The leak wrecked a major terror investigation. He is still at the IRS. Weiss Russell (he has changed his name from “Weiss Rasool,” the name under which he was convicted), is currently employed as a financial management analyst in the IRS Deputy Chief Financial Officer’s

Two days after a shocking defeat, liberals are still grousing about the Senate spiking the nomination of former NAACP Legal Fund Director Debo Adegbile to be head of the Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division. What really burns them up is not just that Republicans successfully filibustered one of President Obama’s choices for a government post but that six Democrats joined with them. But rather than take responsibility for putting forward a controversial figure who was sure to provoke bitter opposition from both sides of the aisle, liberals are reverting to form by blaming their defeat on conservative demagoguery and racism.

Top administration officials have directed 21,000 border patrol officers to retreat whenever illegal immigrants throw rocks at them, and to avoid getting in front of foreign drug-smugglers’ vehicles as they head north with their drug shipments. “Agents shall not discharge firearms in response to thrown or hurled projectiles… agents should obtain a tactical advantage in these situations, such as seeking cover or distancing themselves,” said the instructions, issued Mar. 7, under the signature of Michael Fisher, chief of U.S. Border Patrol. Agents were also directed to keep their weapons holstered when drug smugglers drive by. Agents can’t use guns against

Former ThinkProgress reporter Zaid Jilani wrote a piece this week detailing his experiences working for the liberal blog, which is run by CAP’s 501(c)(4) nonprofit Action Fund, the advocacy arm of White House counselor John Podesta’s think tank. “When I started working at ThinkProgress at the Center for American Progress Action Fund in 2009, I did so because it was an

WASHINGTON — In late December, President Barack Obama´s new legislative affairs team sent him more than a dozen recommendations for ways to improve his strained relations with Capitol Hill. The president responded with a few ideas of his own, including a request for more social events with lawmakers at the White House. It was a surprising suggestion from a president who has done little socializing with lawmakers of either party and has dismissed the notion that sharing a cocktail or a meal with members of Congress is a prescription for easing Washington gridlock. But within weeks, there Obama was, mingling

Second Amendment: The administration´s choice to be the nation´s doctor in chief views gun ownership as a public health issue and not a constitutional right, and wants doctors to query patients about guns in their homes. Cop-killer Mumia Abu-Jamal´s champion, Debo Adegbile, President Obama´s defeated pick to be assistant attorney general for the civil rights division at the Department of Justice, is not the only radical on President Obama´s wish list.

President Obama golfed on Saturday with former NBA player Alonzo Mourning and sportscaster Ahmad Rashad after discussing the military tensions in Ukraine with foreign leaders. The commander-in-chief skipped out of Washington this weekend to vacation with his family in Key Largo, Fla. The White House said Obama placed calls to leaders in countries such as Britain, France, Italy, Lithuania, Latvian and Estonia before he hit the links. Obama and the sports figures were joined by Cyrus Walker, who is the cousin of White House adviser Valerie Jarrett. The president has teamed up with Mourning during several recent trips to Florida.

The 2012 Republican presidential nominee has invited his debate prep advisers and senior campaign aides to his mountaintop chalet in Park City, Utah, for a weekend of skiing later this month, according to two people close to Romney. The reunion of Romney´s political brain trust comes amid a burst of positive buzz about the former Massachusetts governor -- from favorable reviews of "MITT," the Netflix documentary about his campaigns, to chatter among some powerful GOP donors about another Romney presidential campaign in 2016.

What’s been said of confession — that it is good for one’s soul but bad for one’s reputation — can also be true of testifying to Congress, so Lois Lerner has chosen to stay silent. Hers, however, is an eloquent silence. The most intrusive and potentially most punitive federal agency has been politicized; the IRS has become an appendage of Barack Obama’s party. Furthermore, congruent with exhortations from some congressional Democrats, it is intensifying its efforts to suffocate groups critical of progressives, by delaying what once was the swift, routine granting of tax-exempt status. So, the IRS, far from repenting

One of the most seismic changes in American politics over the last decade has been the emergence of a sharp generational split among the electorate. The Democratic Party owes its success in the last two presidential elections almost entirely to overwhelming support among the very young, which has overcome continued conservatism among older voters. The Pew Research Institute has dominated the field of exploring the ideological cleavages among different generations. And its latest survey shows again how the liberalism of the youngest voting cohort, millennials, remains firm, and likely to continue to recast the electorate. A few charts from the survey

Barack Obama´s parents were "married in name only," according to David Maraniss´s 2012 Barack Obama: The Story. But since definitions of an "in name only" marriage vary, such as "a marriage of convenience" or "a sexless marriage," and Maraniss failed to explain his claim, it is unclear what he was implying. Therefore, Obama´s oft-told nativity story must be searched for the full implications of Obama´s parents´ "in name only" marriage.

New York City lefty Mayor Bill de Blasio was elected in a landslide with more than 73 percent of the vote last November.

The most dangerous parts of a flight are takeoff and landing. Rarely do incidents happen when a plane is cruising seven miles above the earth. So the disappearance of a Malaysia Airlines jet well into its flight Saturday morning over the South China Sea has led aviation experts to assume that whatever happened was quick and left the pilots no time to place a distress call. (Snip) The problem had to be big enough, he said, to stop the plane´s transponder from broadcasting its location, although the transponder can be purposely shut off from the cockpit.

Kuala Lumpur - A Malaysia Airlines flight carrying 227 passengers and 12 crew crashed in the South China Sea on Saturday, Vietnamese state media said, quoting a senior naval official. The Boeing 777-200ER flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing had been missing for hours when Vietnam´s Tuoi Tre news quoted Admiral Ngo Van Phat as saying he had asked boats from an island off south Vietnam to rush to the crash site. If the report is confirmed, it would mark the U.S.-built airliner´s deadliest crash since entering service 19 years ago. Malaysia Airlines had yet to confirm that the aircraft had crashed.
