MSNBC's Chris Matthews insults those of faith and those who are skeptical of manmade global warming. Transcript below.

Chris Matthews: In other words, there is no manmade influence on climate change? Is that your belief, Ron Christie? I didn't know that. Are you out there with the full-mooners on this one?

Pray for people like Chris Matthews.

I was an atheist and evolutionist before I was a Christian, and I enjoyed scoffing at Christians for what I regarded as their silly superstition.

It’s amazing what God can do to the transformed heart.

So Chrissy, what do you think of the people who wrote this?:

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.--

To Chris Matthews the God of Israel hating liar and fool. The Scriptures speak of your type of people saying;

The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good.

Psalm 14 1The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good. 2The LORD looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, and seek God. 3They are all gone aside, they are all together become filthy: there is none that doeth good, no, not one. 4Have all the workers of iniquity no knowledge? who eat up my people as they eat bread, and call not upon the LORD. 5There were they in great fear: for God is in the generation of the righteous. 6Ye have shamed the counsel of the poor, because the LORD is his refuge. 7Oh that the salvation of Israel were come out of Zion! when the LORD bringeth back the captivity of his people, Jacob shall rejoice, and Israel shall be glad.

From the Troglodyte - Rudyard Kipling - 1919

If you deny the God of Creation,
You better pay attention to His Copybook Headings...

The Gods of the Copybook Headings

AS I PASS through my incarnations in every age and race,
I make my proper prostrations to the Gods of the Market Place.
Peering through reverent fingers I watch them flourish and fall,
And the Gods of the Copybook Headings, I notice, outlast them all.

We were living in trees when they met us. They showed us each in turn
That Water would certainly wet us, as Fire would certainly burn:
But we found them lacking in Uplift, Vision and Breadth of Mind,
So we left them to teach the Gorillas while we followed the March of Mankind.

We moved as the Spirit listed. They never altered their pace,
Being neither cloud nor wind-borne like the Gods of the Market Place,
But they always caught up with our progress, and presently word would come
That a tribe had been wiped off its icefield, or the lights had gone out in Rome.

With the Hopes that our World is built on they were utterly out of touch,
They denied that the Moon was Stilton; they denied she was even Dutch;
They denied that Wishes were Horses; they denied that a Pig had Wings;
So we worshipped the Gods of the Market Who promised these beautiful things.

When the Cambrian measures were forming, They promised perpetual peace.
They swore, if we gave them our weapons, that the wars of the tribes would cease.
But when we disarmed They sold us and delivered us bound to our foe,
And the Gods of the Copybook Headings said: “Stick to the Devil you know.”

On the first Feminian Sandstones we were promised the Fuller Life
(Which started by loving our neighbour and ended by loving his wife)
Till our women had no more children and the men lost reason and faith,
And the Gods of the Copybook Headings said: “The Wages of Sin is Death.”

In the Carboniferous Epoch we were promised abundance for all,
By robbing selected Peter to pay for collective Paul;
But, though we had plenty of money, there was nothing our money could buy,
And the Gods of the Copybook Headings said: “If you don't work you die.”

Then the Gods of the Market tumbled, and their smooth-tongued wizards withdrew
And the hearts of the meanest were humbled and began to believe it was true
That All is not Gold that Glitters, and Two and Two make Four
And the Gods of the Copybook Headings limped up to explain it once more.

As it will be in the future, it was at the birth of Man
There are only four things certain since Social Progress began.
That the Dog returns to his Vomit and the Sow returns to her Mire,
And the burnt Fool's bandaged finger goes wabbling back to the Fire;

And that after this is accomplished, and the brave new world begins
When all men are paid for existing and no man must pay for his sins,
As surely as Water will wet us, as surely as Fire will burn,
The Gods of the Copybook Headings with terror and slaughter return!

Yet Matthews, like Pelosi, touts their Catholic credentials. Obviously Pelosi is trying to get the Catholic vote (the debate on the beginning of life is unsettled in the Catholic Church.....WHAT?)but why does Matthews bother?

I, as a person who loves science, especially astronomy can only see the logic of the Creator being responsible.

All these theories the so called geniuses come up with are unproved and will always be because they are wrong.

Evolution- no proof.
Big bang- no proof.
String theory- no proof.

They may argue that there is no proof of Gods existence, but His existence is far less of a stretch of the imagination.

folks like matthews, and other assorted atheist types are this way because the abscence of any God, allows them to say that man can make the rules and make utopia cause some of them are smarter than the rest of us great unwashed...

but, they look stupid now because if they paid attention, the fact that we have a government based on a creator, i.e. the declaration of independence, etc, so they cant, as mere men, take control, they tacitly admit, there is a creator, but dont care to realize or admit to it...

One of my favorite traps for atheists is to ask them: Do the wings of a bird serve a purpose? Do eyes serve a purpose? Hands and feet? etc, etc. Their answer, somewhat reluctantly, is ‘yes’. Then I ask them to look up the definition ‘purpose’ in their dictionary of choice. I save them the trouble by telling them that the words ‘intent’ or ‘intention’ is the first thing they will see. I then ask them to explain ‘intent’ without intelligence. Checkmate.

2 John 1

1The elder unto the elect lady and her children, whom I love in the truth; and not I only, but also all they that have known the truth;

2For the truth’s sake, which dwelleth in us, and shall be with us for ever.

3Grace be with you, mercy, and peace, from God the Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of the Father, in truth and love.

4I rejoiced greatly that I found of thy children walking in truth, as we have received a commandment from the Father.

5And now I beseech thee, lady, not as though I wrote a new commandment unto thee, but that which we had from the beginning, that we love one another.

6And this is love, that we walk after his commandments. This is the commandment, That, as ye have heard from the beginning, ye should walk in it.

7For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist.

8Look to yourselves, that we lose not those things which we have wrought, but that we receive a full reward.

9Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son.

10If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed:

11For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds.

12Having many things to write unto you, I would not write with paper and ink: but I trust to come unto you, and speak face to face, that our joy may be full.

13The children of thy elect sister greet thee. Amen.

I’m not good at explaining things but here are my thoughts on evolution.

‘SOMEONE’ had to have given everything the GENES/DNA to exist on earth.

Then they would be able to evolve or transform to what’s necessary to exist.
But ‘SOMEONE’ created those genes to begin with.

How could one look at what’s around us and not believe there is a God?
I’m not a fanatic religious person. I don’t even go to church but I do believe.

..the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelieving, that they might not see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.
(2 Corinthians 4:4)

Yes, pray for them, that the veil might be removed, and that we, like Paul, would proclaim the gospel boldly, as we should.

And give thanks to the Father, Who has qualified us to share in the inheritance of the saints in light. For He delivered us from the domain of darkness and transferred us to the kingdom of His beloved Son, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.
Colossians 1:12-14)

Paul comes immediately to mind -- followed by each of us to some degree, if we are honest. In almost every endeavor, radical converts often make the most ardent and effective advocates. When one becomes convinced of his error, he sees things more acutely than others who might never have questioned the truth. The ability to believe is a gift from God. Pray for the scoffers, indeed.

There is a very significant difference in fools like Matthews and Paul. Paul was a scoffer because he was zealous to defend the Jewish faith. Matthews is a scoffer out of putrefacted pride which has destroyed his soul from the inside out. Jesus could work with Paul because his zeal was not based in pride for himself. I doubt even Jesus could work with Matthews since he is so eaten up with self-righteous progressivism pride. Outer darkness is already reserved for the Chris Matthews hyopcrits of this world ... the scumbucket claims to be a Catholic don’tchaknow. It reminds me of those ‘I’m a Mormon’ ads, we know the lying scum named Milt Romney is also ‘a Mormon’.

Bingo! With no creator to whom we must be accountable, we believe ourselves free to suppress our God-given consciences and do whatever is right in our own eyes. And as long as we claim that what we do to others is "for their own good," there is no limit to the horrors we can inflict upon them.
