  • Who would be a better Commander in Chief: Muslim B. Hussein Obama or Catholic Joe Biden?

    The Clinton-Obama Benghazi Rule is as follows: “1.) ALWAYS STAND DOWN WHEN MUSLIMS ATTACK, 2.) WAIT FOR THE MUSLIMS TO FINISH THEIR BLOOD SPORT KILLING, AND 3.) THEN DO NOTHING.” Since September 11, 2014, Obama has: * Invoked the field-tested, Clinton-Obama Benghazi Rule for the US in order to allow the ongoing genocide of Christians, and Yazidis in current US Ally Iraq; * Refused to keep his Word on his Redline in Syria; * Released the GITMO FIVE to supervise the rapid growth of ISIS; * Repeatedly proclaimed that HIS "American People" are war weary; * Ordered the dismissing of...
  • What is the Green Bible?

    07/14/2013 12:53:18 PM PDT · by Fiji Hill · 20 replies
    Question: "What is the Green Bible?"Answer: The Green Bible, published in 2008 by Harper Collins Publishers, is not a new translation. The publishers use the New Revised Standard Version as their text. The whole premise of this version is similar to the “red-letter” editions of the Bible where the words of Christ are printed in red ink. Following this approach, the Green Bible prints in green ink verses and passages which, according to the publisher, deal with environmental topics or creation care. They break this down into four categories: 1. How God and Jesus are involved in creation; 2. How...

    CHICAGO, May 22 (UPI) -- Six men who charge they were victims of former priest Donald McGuire have settled a sex abuse lawsuit against Chicago Jesuits for $19.6 million. The payout averaging $3 million a person is the largest individual amount awarded in the history of the U.S. Catholic sexual abuse scandal, lawyers for the victims told the Chicago Tribune. Settlement of the lawsuit against the Chicago Province of the Society of Jesus names a number of Jesuit superiors who for four decades kept McGuire's crimes a secret and enabled him to abuse more young men, victims' attorneys said.

    The financial disaster of the loss of over one Trillion Taxpayer Dollars per year by the incompetent financial stewardship of Benghazi-Coward B. Hussein Obama continues without significant opposition by the cowardly US House of Representatives. Sobber of the House Boehner is so fearful of the negative opinions that will always come from the Commie Liberal Agenda Media, (CLAM), that Boehner is willing to tearfully impale himself on Obama's threat of a veto just to "save" America from not getting a "Deal" by the end of 2012. Conservatives do not want a "Deal." What we want is for the US House...

    The financial death spiral of the US Federal Government has been caused by financially irresponsible politicians during the last 80 years. Their lack of stewardship has resulted in them charging us with a National Debt of 14.8 TRILLION dollars, which must be paid back, plus interest, to those who we borrowed the money from. We have indeed allowed these same politicians to cruelly burden our own grandchild with this horrific National Debt. We have no one to blame but ourselves for electing them in the first place, and not impeaching them when they failed to spend our money within our...

Good stewardship is at the heart of Biblical expectation. Therefore, as a Christian Nation enjoying God’s blessings and founded on God given principles, the following topic is not just a necessary secular topic, but a necessary religious topic. Folks may be afraid to talk about and even engage in taking action, but they are even more afraid of the consequences. However, it is time to “saddle up”.America is scared to death at this point in the country’s history....

Recently, most of these reports are somehow tied into global warming. While some of the evidence suggests that the earth has warmed recently (see sidebar for information), many scientists build their conclusions upon a faulty view of earth’s history.

    A powerful alliance of Evangelical Christians and other religious groups is challenging traditional views of environmental activism by promoting a documentary about global warming in churches across America. The group aims to convince congregations of all denominations that damage to the environment is a moral and spiritual rather than political issue that requires urgent action at every level. The Great Warming, a Canadian production narrated by Keanu Reeves and Alanis Morissette, is being pitched in particular at the powerful conservative Christian constituency, which was credited with helping to re-elect President George W Bush in 2004. Its release is timed to...

    As Christians, we should be concerned about our effect on our environment. God appointed man to be the steward of this world (Genesis 1:28), not the destroyer of it. However, we should not allow environmentalism to become a form of idolatry, where the “rights” of an inanimate planet and its non-human creatures are held in higher esteem than God (Romans 1:25). With global warming, as with any other topic, it is crucial to understand what the facts are, who those facts come from, how they are interpreted, and what the spiritual implications should be. A careful look at global warming,...

Risk Policy Report wrote on October 25 that NAE had been planning soon to release a policy statement on global warming that would call for mandatory greenhouse gas controls. There is now more reason to hope that reason and NAE traditional values – rather than unproven science – will win the day.

Bush's words grabbed me when I heard them over the radio while sitting in Cades Cove last Friday watching the weather wash away the president's visit.

    Forest Plan Involves Timber Co.

Critics say it's a blatant giveaway to timber companies. The plan, approved last month as part of a giant spending bill, allows logging companies to cut large, commercially valuable trees in national forests in exchange for clearing smaller, more fire-prone trees and brush. Known as "stewardship contracting," the approach allows the U.S. Forest Service and Bureau of Land Management (news...
