Great commentary on Santa Claus theology — i.e., Liberal theology

But on the basis of Santa Claus theology, sins create no problem, and atonement becomes needless; God’s active favor extends no less to those who disregard his commands than to those who keep them.  The idea that God’s attitude to me is affected by whether or not do what He says has no place in the thought of the man on the street, and any attempt to show the need for fear in God’s presence, for trembling at His word, gets written off as impossibly old-fashioned–’Victorian,’ ‘Puritan,’ and ’sub-Christian.’

Yet the Santa Claus theology carries within itself the seeds of its own collapse, for it cannot cope with the fact of evil.

Obama to Iran: Stop laughing, we’re serious! — This is what happens when you elect people like Obama.

As another deadline approaches for Iran to demonstrate its willingness to abandon the nuclear weapons it so clearly desires, both sides have reacted in a predictable manner.  The US reminded Iran that this time we are really, really, really super-serious about it, while Iran scoffs at the threat.  In fact, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad says Iran has grown “10 times stronger” on Barack Obama’s watch.

Ben Nelson, the Senator who was bribed into voting for taxpayer-funded abortions, displays more of that integrity when switching his vote on that type of bribe once he realized the Democrats had enough votes to win without him.  Classy.

I think that James O’Keefe and Hannah Giles should be the People of the Year winners for outing ACORN.  The mainstream media did their best to ignore it and missed countless opportunities to do some real journalism and investigate ACORN themselves. 

‘Nonmonogamy’ Advocate Dan Savage Uses Adopted Child to Promote Homosexual ‘Marriage’ — that is, when he isn’t busy with a three-way S&M-fest

White House Says “Have A Wonderful Socialist Transvestite Christmas” — I am not making this up: The White House “Christmas” tree had ornaments with a drag queen, Chairman Mao and Obama on Mt. Rushmore.  I’d like to think that those who voted for Obama would deeply regret it, but I’ve found that they tend to be as uninformed about what he has done since the election as they were about what he did before the election.

Doesn’t this bother Obama supporters at all?

So now President Obama is talking about taking over er, uh, bailing out newspapers (Obama is ‘Concerned’ About Blogosphere).

This is creepy:

Mr. Obama said he noted the trend. “I am concerned that if the direction of the news is all blogosphere, all opinions, with no serious fact-checking, no serious attempts to put stories in context, that what you will end up getting is people shouting at each other across the void but not a lot of mutual understanding,” the President said.

Great point, Mr. President.  A good example would be how the major newspapers scooped the ACORN story with experienced reporters Hannah Giles and James O’Keefe.  Oh, wait, bad example.  They were amateur no-names who did that.  I read about the ACORN mess countless times on blogs before the MSM was forced to report on it and long before Charles Gibson was finally informed about it.

I do concede that an Obama-run newspapers would be more efficient.  The administration wouldn’t have to tell the papers what to write, as with the current practice, they would just write it themselves.


 Thorough response about the lies regarding the makers of the ACORN videos — Hannah Giles and James O’Keefe are American heroes.  This is historic, folks.  A couple young folks with a small amount of money do a little work and expose a spectacularly corrupt and inept organization championed by the President.  Will they get the Pulitzer prizes and movies that they deserve?  Doubtful.

It also shines a light on the atrocious NPR comments that the ACORN employees did such despicable things because of their low-income background.  They shouldn’t slander poor people like that.  Looks like their elitism slipped out.

Oh, by the way, President Obama thinks you are stupid.  Gosh, he didn’t know that ACORN was getting a whole lot of Federal money!  Seriously, Obama supporters, don’t you find that just a little insulting?

Quote of the week — paraphrase of a quote I heard on the radio (can’t recall the name of who said it, but I think it is pretty old).  It is a keeper:

People who deny moral absolutes should be tortured until they agree that it is a moral absolute that you shouldn’t torture people for denying moral absolutes. 

Remember that for the next time a postmodern tries to get out of a debate by claiming there are no moral absolutes.

‘Honor killing’ could await Rifqa in Sri Lanka —

When Caner informed his devout Muslim father in 1982 that he had become a born-again Christian, his father disowned him. Caner believes that was “an act of mercy” because his father could have carried out an “honor killing” authorized by the Koran.

In the years following Caner’s decision to accept Jesus Christ, his three brothers, his mother, and grandmother all converted to Christianity. According to Caner, those salvation experiences were only possible “because anonymous saints spoke up” and preached the gospel.

Caner wrapped up his address by issuing an emotional challenge to fellow Christians: “Preach, teach, and reach — or shut up and get out of our way.”

Hey theologically Liberal readers: The last line is for you. 

Why do people go to Hell?
