  • ABCs of the Religious Right-(liberals like Howard Dean don't know why they keep losing the South)

    04/29/2005 8:59:40 PM PDT · by CHARLITE · 5 replies · 267+ views
    The Liberals howled at "Justice Sunday." Way too 'uppity' of Senator Frist to speak about a political issue, a majority rules vote on judges, from a Baptist church in Kentucky and simulcast to over 1,000 other churches — when the church isn't predominately Black! Conservatives condemned Democrat hostility to 'people of faith' and not one of their church leaders was a practicing homosexual. That Religious Right is not supposed to speak out in public. Or serve as judges. Or get elected. Or even vote. But millions did in '04. Liberals hate that and covet the votes. Liberals just don't understand...

  • Mohler: Judicial filibusters show religious liberty is at stake-(Baptist report;"Justice Sunday")

    LOUISVILLE, Ky. (BP)--Believers must exercise their Christian citizenship beyond the ballot box to halt activist judges and secularist senators who are robbing Americans of their religious liberty, R. Albert Mohler Jr. told a nationwide audience April 24 during “Justice Sunday” at Highview Baptist Church in Louisville, Ky. Mohler, president of Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, was one of several speakers at the event, which was designed to mobilize Christians to action against judicial filibusters, which Democrat senators have used to block 10 of President Bush’s appellate court nominees. In most of the cases, senators objected to the nominees' pro-life views. The...

    Thunder Over Louisville is the Kentucky Derby Festival's annual kickoff to the two week long celebration leading up to the Kentucky Derby. Each year KDF and it's sponsors-Chase Bank, Caesar's Indiana, Ford and UPS-put on an airshow and the largest fireworks display in the United States, dwarfing even New York's July 4th fireworks show. As part of the airshow, military aircraft from all branches of the Armed Forces demonstrate their capabilities. This year these included the F-16, F-15, F-18 fighters, Blackhawk helicopters, and B-2 and B-52 bombers among others. It's typical of airshows across the nation to include military aircraft...

    Inauguration Day brought out the Socialists of LPAC (Louisville Peace Action Community) to protest our Commander-and-Chief and the War against Terror. However, as usual, the local chapter of Protest Warrior and FReepers were on hand to liven up their pity party. FReepers in attendance that I know of: BlueOneGolf and SheWolf. The LPAC Lefties planned to march through downtown Louisville at 4PM and rally in front of the Jefferson County Courthouse at 5th and Jefferson at 5PM. Although I was late getting off work I joined up with our group of Protest Warriors in the middle of the march. I...

    I am providing a link to an article about a sociology professor at the University of Louisville who reportedly said shortly after the election that “It was the religious zealots who say they are voting on morals. I think we should all buy AK47’s and shoot them all! That’s what I would suggest, if it were allowed.” I sent the following e-mail to University administrators shortly after the article was published.

    According to Brian Yates of the Louisville Patriot, one of the many marxist professors at the University of Louisville, in Kentucky, is suffering from the newly discovered affliction called "post election selection syndrome". On the Thursday following the presidential election of 2004, he told his class, "It was the religious zealots who say they are voting on morals. I think we should all buy AK47’s and shoot them all! That’s what I would suggest, if it were allowed." He has to go buy a gun? That's a shame. I guess, as long as the coming Revolution waits a few days...

    Courier Journal ^ | 9/15/04 | Joseph Gerth
    The Louisville metro government owes millions of dollars in overtime to firefighters after a Jefferson circuit judge ruled that officials for years calculated the pay incorrectly. Jefferson Circuit Judge Lisabeth Hughes Abramson has sided with firefighters who sued the old city of Louisville for failing to calculate their overtime based on their total salaries, rather than their base pay. The exact amount of back pay owed still is being determined. (snip) If the court agrees, Oldfather estimated the metro government would owe $10 million to $35 million to some 700 current and former firefighters. Herb Segal, who represents the Louisville...

    Louisville Metro Council may discuss forest name change to honor Ronald Reagan We are not allowed to post articles or news pieces from several Gannett publications to Free Republic, including the Louisville Courier Journal, better known to many of you as the Communist Journal.
