Barack Obama must be called to renounce Black Liberation Theology. Can an American be compelled to renounce their religion, a freedom guaranteed by the Constitution and one which has been so dearly held by Americans for over 200 years? No, but there is a major distinction between asking someone to renounce their religion versus a highly controversial school of so-called theology.
A desperate push is underway to enact the Climate Security Act sponsored by Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-CN) and Sen. John Warner (R-VA). It would impose cap-and-trade mandates on anything that generates carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions and that pretty much includes everything involving energy use, including backyard barbequing.
As if the constant flow of illegal aliens and drugs from Mexico were not already a huge problem for the United States, it is about to get worse. When Business Week took notice of Mexico’s dwindling oil reserves and failed national oil company, Pemex, in its May 5th edition, it signaled a problem whose significance is as great as the one involving an invading population.
Once again, in response to constituent outcry over gasoline prices, Oil Company executives have been hauled before Congress to get their posteriors ripped into by self-serving grandstanding Senators. Senator Leahy went so far as to question the salary of the execs – as if this was in some way relevant. But these self-appointed watchdogs are barking up the wrong tree. The Oil Companies are not to blame for our pain at the pump!
Americans who know the values and benefits of living a spiritual life are familiar with claims that Barack Obama is a kind of a Messianic transfiguring leader who wants to unite all Americans. Many however, wonder why he would gravitate to a religious theology which, unfortunately, is centered upon the color of a person’s skin. Does The Almighty distinguish people’s difference one from another? “There is no longer Jew or Gentile, slave or free, male and female in Christ Jesus.” (Galatians 3:28)
The movie, “Recount”, arrives at a time when the Democrat Party is trying to determine whether the “popular” vote in its primaries takes precedent over the actual number of delegates, whether “pledged” or “super delegates” whose only allegiance is to (1) retaining their power in Congress and the Party and (2) actually trying to win the national election in November.
It is likely that the question for many Americans here is to what deity the candidate is referring. Is it the God of Abraham, as worshipped by Jews and Christians? Is it Jesus Christ? Is it the god that – as Rev. Wright suggested – ought damn America for its imperialism, amoral foreign and domestic covert operations, drugging and infection of American blacks, and black (or would it be white) helicopters? Is it Allah, perhaps?
A friend of mine recently wrote to me saying, “My wife is retiring in June after thirty years of teaching. A high school degree means nothing. No Child Left Behind is an even bigger joke. It is a scary situation that could lead us to third world status, but we are prepared for that since we already teach English as a second language.”
A Southern President was laid to rest on Memorial Day. The Sons of Confederate Veterans have proclaimed 2008, as the “Year of Jefferson Davis” and Davis’ 200th birthday, June 3, 2008, will be celebrated with many great events including the reopening of his last home “Beauvoir” on the Mississippi Gulf Coast. Please share the following […]
Americans have painted themselves into the corner on energy and the two presumptive candidates for President are ready to finish off the nation with the worst possible “solutions.”
Sen. Barack Obama is talking of “windfall profits” taxes on the oil companies, thus threatening to take away the money they need to invest in exploration, extraction, refining and delivery of the gas and oil we need to fuel our cars and trucks, and heat our homes.
