For Christian American readers of this blog:

I wish to incite all Christians to rise up and take back the United States of America with all of God's manifold blessings. We want the free allowance of the Bible and prayers allowed again in schools, halls of justice, and all governing bodies. We don't seek a theocracy until Jesus returns to earth because all men are weak and power corrupts the very best of them.
We want to be a kinder and gentler people without slavery or condescension to any.

The world seems to be in a time of discontent among the populace. Christians should not fear. God is Love, shown best through Jesus Christ. God is still in control. All Glory to our Creator and to our God!

A favorite quote from my good friend, Jack Plymale, which I appreciate:

"Wars are planned by old men,in council rooms apart. They plan for greater armament, they map the battle chart, but: where sightless eyes stare out, beyond life's vanished joys, I've noticed,somehow, all the dead and mamed are hardly more than boys(Grantland Rice per our mutual friend, Sarah Rapp)."

Thanks Jack!

I must admit that I do not check authenticity of my posts. If anyone can tell me of a non-biased arbitrator, I will attempt to do so more regularly. I know of no such arbitrator for the internet.

Dismissing God in America ... Thx Traudi and Sarah R!

I saw this interview with Ben Stein and feel that the following commentary bears merit and should be disseminated. Hope you all read it! Traudi
The  following was written by Ben Stein and recited by him  on CBS 
Sunday Morning  Commentary.
My  confession:
I don't like getting pushed around for  being a 
Jew, and I don't think Christians like  getting pushed around for 
being  Christians.  I think people who believe in God 
are  sick and tired of getting pushed around,  period. I have no
idea where the concept came from,  that America is an explicitly 
atheist country. I can't find it in the Constitution and I don't like
it  being shoved down my throat.

Or maybe I can put it another way: where did the idea come from 
that we  should worship celebrities and we aren't  allowed to
worship God  as we understand  Him?  I guess that's a sign
that I'm  getting old, too. But there are a lot of us who 
are  wondering where these celebrities came from  and where the
America we knew went to.

In  light of the many  jokes we  send to one  another for a laugh, this is a
little  different:  This is not intended to be a joke; it's not funny, it's intended to get you 

In  light of recent events--terrorists attacks, school  shootings, etc. I think
it started when Madeleine  Murray O'Hare (she  was murdered, her
body found  a few years ago) complained she didn't want prayer in 
our schools, and we said OK. Then someone said you  better not read the
Bible in school .

The  Bible says thou shalt not kill; thou shalt not steal,  and love your neighbor
as yourself.  And we  said  OK.

Then Dr. Benjamin Spock said we  shouldn't spank our  children when
they  misbehave, because their little personalities would be warped and
we might damage their self-esteem  (Dr.  Spock's son committed
suicide).  We  said an expert should  know what he's
talking  about.  And we said  

Now  we're asking ourselves why our children have no  conscience, why they don't
know right from wrong, and  why it  doesn't bother them to kill
strangers,  their classmates, and themselves.

Probably, if  we think about it long and hard  enough, we can  figure
it out. I think it has a great deal to do with,  'WE REAP WHAT WE

Funny how simple it  is  for people to trash God and then wonder why 
the world's going to  hell. Funny how we believe  what the
newspapers say, but  question what the  Bible says.  Funny
how you can send  'jokes'  through e-mail and they spread like
wildfire, but  when  you start sending messages regarding
the  Lord, people think  twice about sharing.   Funny
how lewd, crude, vulgar and obscene articles  pass freely through
cyberspace, but public discussion  of God is suppressed in the school
and  workplace.

Are you laughing yet?
Funny how when you forward  this message,  you will not send it to many on your
address list  because you're not sure what they believe, or what 
they will  think of you for sending it.

Funny how we can be more  worried about  what other people think of us than what
God  thinks  of us.

Pass it on if you think it  has merit.
If not, then just  discard it. No one will know you did. But, if you  discard this thought
process, don't sit  back and  complain about what bad shape the world is  in. 

My Best Regards,
Honestly and  Respectfully,

Ben  Stein
