Fighting for the Faith has a good analysis of the false teachings of Chuck Currie. The host plays the whole audio of Chuck’s “sermon” with comments interspersed, so you know you are getting the full context.
Side note: Chuck still hasn’t backed up his accusations that I left comments on his blog that were “racist, sexist, homophobic” and included “offensive language and more.” I was curious to see if he would ever provide evidence or apologize, but all he said on his blog was, “Neil, Thanks for all your e-mails on this. I’m sorry that I don’t have the time to write back each day in person but thanks for your feedback.”
False teacher. False accusations. Shocking. Maybe this week’s sermon will be on honesty. Or asking forgiveness when you lie about someone. No, it will probably be about why Jesus is pro-legalized partial birth abortion, anti-parental notification, anti-informed consent, etc. (Yes, Chuck, some religious groups do support the choice to destroy the unborn — false and apostate religious groups, including segments of the Methodist Church.)
Unions prepare for BIG payday with new Prez
And, in keeping with the Times’ journalistic malpractice, quite a few things are misrepresented in favor of the unions. Take “card check” for instance. Check out how the Times describes the fact that this horrible law will take away one of the oldest democratic rights there is.
“Labor’s No. 1 priority is a piece of legislation called the Employee Free Choice Act, also known as the card-check bill. The bill would give workers the right to join a union as soon as a majority of employees at a workplace signed cards saying they wanted one. Business groups have attacked the legislation because it would take away employers’ right to insist on holding a secret-ballot election to determine whether workers favored unionization.”
Once again, liberals think abortion is moral but displaying pictures of it is immoral. I think that pictures of the Holocaust are unpleasant, but I am quite certain that the killings were immoral and showing the pictures is not immoral.
Lots of racism from some GLBTQ folks – the violent and viscious reactions continue from their Proposition 8 loss. I would expect black folks to be irritated that the gay lobby is trying to co-opt the Civil Rights agenda. Do the GLBTQ folks think it is a winning strategy to alienate blacks and say how uneducated they are for voting Yes on 8?
And even if pro-Prop 8 voters have less eduction than average, please remember that intelligence and wisdom are two different things. You don’t need a PhD to know the definition of marriage. I’m also reminded of this quote by J. Budziszewski:
Though it always comes as a surprise to intellectuals, there are some forms of stupidity that you must be highly intelligent and educated to commit.
P.S. to Arnold: Skin color is morally neutral, sexual behavior is not.
Crazy lefties attack old lady at No on 8 protest. The only amusing thing in this horrible incident was when the hopelessly PC anchorman said, “a lot of hate evidently on both sides.” Uh, sure, buddy. The quiet old lady carrying the cross was really dishing out the hate to that mob.
Violence and disruption of a church service by a gay anarchist group in Michigan – It is hard to believe no one was arrested. Ask yourself why you aren’t seeing this on the national news.
Hat tip to Kris for the cartoon below. I had no idea that 1% in a margin of victory made such a big difference! I do find the “we need to unite behind the President” theme a little ironic, because the reality is that we don’t need to do that any more than the Democrats did when Bush was President.
This site is a little racy, but makes a great point about the messages from 52 to 48 blather going around. This is the sanitized version: Starting prior to the 2001 inauguration, you and your bought and paid for media demonized President Bush and conservatives over anything and everything, and now you want to play nice and demand unity? Give me a break. We won’t be vile like the Left has been, but we will complain now and keep complaining all we like. Will I pray for our leaders? Yes, because I’m commanded to. But my prayers will include requests that their dreams be haunted by visions of the slaughter of the unborn, the shattered lives of those who have abortions and the last breaths of those born alive but left to die.
P.S. Does this mean California is united against government recognition of oxymoronic same-sex marriage? I recall that the margin was quite similar.
Zo has my vote for head of the Republican National Committee
“After complaints of one-sided reporting, the Washington Post checked their own articles and agreed.” Golly!

About the card-check bill, the story states, “Business groups have attacked the legislation because it would take away employers’ right to insist on holding a secret-ballot election to determine whether workers favored unionization.”
Wouldn’t it also remove the employee’s right to express his position by secret ballot and, by doing so, express his will without the coercion and physical intimidation that can accompany efforts to unionize?
This issue isn’t a matter of businesses vs. unions: it’s a matter of whether individuals can decide to support or oppose unionization without coercion, the freedom from which is essential to free society.
Agreed. I think they just skipped a step there. The businesses don’t like it because they don’t want unions, and they rightly realize that unions are more likely if the employees can’t vote against them without fear of intimidation. The real issue is the employees and their rights to a secret ballot.
But once again, the anti-choice liberals want to take away those rights.
Yes, Zo is great at making his point. We need someone leading the RNC who can do that. It would be nice if Newt would step up and do so.
I visited the link to the Center for Bio-Ethical Reform. I didn’t stay long though. The first abortion video is just too much… And they call it choice?
finally, loved that cartoon. 52% – we’re united!!! gotta loved them.
Racism within the LGBQT crowd comes as no surprise to me. Thus, I’ve always disagreed with the likes of Dr. Eric Dyson who believes that blacks should support gay and lesbians. Hopefully this will help others see that there is a difference between race and behavior.
There is a lot o interesting stuff going on in our world. Thanks for keeping us informed. There is a difference between civil rights for gays and for African Americans there is nothing to compare. Gays have never been slaves and share croppers.
LGBQT crowd is directing some serious hate at Black folk, which will only backfire on them.

You are kidding right? Every WEC (White Evangelical Christian, not World Extreme Cagefighting) I know was always quick to point out how: “Well, you have to respect the office…” or how “we need to Unite behind the President” whenever anyone voiced ANY Criticism of him or his polices.
On the other hand, it’s not clear what principled reason Democrats had for making one’s service as a Vietnam veteran paramount in 2004, but not in 2008.
I’m sure there was a good reason for that…
Maybe because Mr. O is too young to have served in Vietnam.
Good ’nuff for ya?
Maybe Bubba was speaking of McCain/
Good ’nuff for ya? Or were you just too busy trying to be clever to notice?
Well maybe McCain would have gotten further on that (at least with me) if he supported the increase in veterans benefits he voted against…
