Political Cartoon: Beauty and the Beast

Benazir Bhutto was a brave and courageous leader who died for freedom, ....

Beauty and the Beast

...unlike some sleekit snakes who hide away in caves.

Bhutto's Legacy

The suicidal satanic atheist who assassinated Benazir Bhutto yesterday cursed his nation’s journey towards freedom and democracy. The evil beasts that he represents, for I would not call those callous cowards who kill women ‘men,’ are probably gloating in their secret hideouts of shame, indecency, and inhumanity. I call them satanic atheists because they worship wickedness and hate God. They slaughter leaders like Benazir because they are afraid of letting hope captivate the hearts of the people, and want to retain control through fear, insecurity, and murderous mayhem.

Despicable despots like Bin Laden and his satanic associates seek to enslave the free world with their warped ideals and heretical beliefs. Their allegiance is to an Allah that does not exist, and offends the very goodness of God amongst the Islamic people. They are atheistic scum, schooled in the ways of terror and torture, fanaticism and faithlessness. Life is neither sacred nor holy to them; freedom and democracy are devilishly denied by their cowardly acts of cruelty, violence, and assassination.

The world knows better than to give in to their filth and lack of faith. In Pakistan, there are many moderate Muslims who will serve their Allah truly and triumphantly. And throughout the world, there are billions of people who are disgusted, enraged, and mobilized to stand together for justice, freedom, faith, and democracy, which will one day encircle the earth and pave its way all over this planet.

The creed of satanic atheism which states that “when wickedness persists and no one resists, evil triumphs” is a hollow threat to noble humanity. Bullets and bombs may have killed Benazir Bhutto, but her spirit lives and will not die in the hearts of her people. Freedom will be resurrected amongst the ashes of these cowardly assassins. Liberty will not be lost to those who truly value life. The pages of history will proclaim the noble name of Bhutto in the highest halls of glory and honor. Her killers will become dust beneath the feet of her people as they march towards the freedom that will be their honorable choice and glorious destiny.

Prayer: Almighty God, who gave us both life and liberty, we bring before You the nation of Pakistan. We pray for Your mercy and grace to be extended over its people and we solemnly ask that You will protect them from the evil that seeks to destabilize the nation. Raise up just and courageous leaders who will guide the Pakistani people to the light of liberty. In Your Holy name, we pray. Amen.

Political Cartoons: Paul's feast

Ron Paul raised a ton of money yesterday...

Paul's Feast

...must have been all of those emails. Kinda reminds me of Monty Python for some reason.

Why I Can't Vote for Mitt Romney

A Conservative Christian Republican outlines why he can't vote for Mitt Romney.

For the past two presidential elections, I’ve voted Republican. I’m fairly conservative with some of my values, although I do root for the underdog from time to time. In yesterday’s News-Sentinel, Mormon beliefs were clearly spelled out in an excellent article. After reading them, I now must declare that if Mitt Romney is chosen as the Republican nominee, I won’t be voting for him.

Some people say that this is un-American. Are we now declaring that voters must separate their religion from their votes? That would be un-American. In fact, it would be totalitarian. I consider myself to be an evangelical Trinitarian Christian. As such, I can’t divorce my faith from my vote. Therefore, I will not vote for Romney in the Presidential primaries or national election.

There are several key doctrinal issues that cause problems for me.

Firstly, Mormons are not Christians. They consider themselves to be, but the Christ they worship is entirely different from the Jesus we know in the Gospels. Christ ascended into heaven after His Resurrection. The Mormon Christ came over to America like a spiritual Christopher Columbus after His Ascension. This is not mentioned in the Gospels.

Secondly, Mormons believe in baptizing the dead, allowing people a second chance in eternity. This is not mainline Christian thought and is one of the things that sets the Mormons apart as a cult rather than as a Christian denomination.

Thirdly, they believe in a caste system and hierarchy in heaven with three tiers. The highest tier belongs to those who are truly Mormon and married. This is not Gospel teaching, for Christ Himself says that in heaven none are married. There is also no hierarchy in heaven, save that of the Trinity.

Finally, Mormons believe that God is married which invalidates Trinitarianism. This is the most serious doctrinal issue that separates Mormons from mainline Christianity. This is a false teaching and one that separates my vote from going to Mitt Romney. I am a staunch Trinitarian Christian believer. I could not vote for a person who does believe in the sanctity of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Mitt Romney may be a good man, but I would feel as though I was disloyal to Christ if I voted for him.

So, if the GOP decides to accept Romney as its presidential nominee, they will not have my vote. And possibly other Christians will feel the same.

Next Year's Peace Prize goes to Mayor Ragsdale

Doggone it! Al Gore wins the Nobel Peace Prize. Maybe next year it could go to Knox County Mayor Mike Ragsdale if he would only enforce “disturbing the peace” laws in Knox County. At 6.15AM one of our neighbors lets out his dog and it barks for fifteen bloody minutes! This contravenes the pet laws in our county which state that before 8AM and after 11PM, no pets should disturb the peace!

So as well as fixing up the County Commission, Mr. Ragsdale, tear down the walls of bureaucracy and start enforcing this law! Maybe if we all slept better and longer things wouldn’t be so bad around here…

Political cartoon: Democrat Fundraising - The Musical

The figures for the last quarter's campaign fundraising have just been released. Obama boy thought he was doing well, until...

Musical Cheers

...he came up against the Clinton girl.

Without "The Voice" being aired, where is the voice of the people?

Our town, Knoxville, Tennessee, has been rocked by the corrupt practices of our local government. Our local newspaper, the News-Sentinel, has at last lived up to its name by bringing a law suit against the Knox County commissioners, who made backroom deals with regard to replacement commissioners. According to the Sentinel’s law suit, these commissioners broke the sunshine law by ensuring that their own people, and in some cases, their own family members, were awarded the vacant seats. We even ended up having a convicted drug dealer representing some people in our county. How corrupt is that?

For some people, this was major news. They didn’t think that our local government was capable of this kind of wheeling and dealing. For me, it was old news. You may remember that I was a regular guest of the morning radio show “The Voice” hosted by Lloyd Daugherty and Kelvin Moxley. We had been talking about this level of corruption in local government eighteen months before the newspaper decided to take up the cudgel and try to oust the backroom boys. We raised these issues on a regular basis and became a thorn in the authority’s side. We stopped airing the program because some mysterious buyers purchased the station and turned it into a sports radio channel. It seems to me that we were making waves, so some groups were happy when we were no longer on the air.

Now these issues have come to the surface and the whole town is reeling from it. Our trust in our local commissioners has hit an all time low and it will probably take one or two elections to properly oust the backroom shenanigans and replace it with open government. Perhaps, in due course, our county commissioners will gain the respect of the people, and use their power not to cover up shady dealings, but to live as servants of the people they represent.

And I also hope that "The Voice" will get back on the air sometime soon. This town needs to hear what Lloyd and Kelvin have to say on a regular basis. This town needs "The Voice."
