The “No Nukes” crowd: Still clueless

Via World Council of Churches Praises United States For Ratification of New Start Treaty by false teacher Chuck “Jesus is not the only way” Currie, the World Council of (mostly apostate) Churches expresses their ridiculously naive worldview:

Progress is long overdue on another step that President Obama and many other leaders link to the vision of a world without nuclear weapons – a treaty to stop production of fuel for nuclear bombs. It has been stalled at the Conference on Disarmament here in Geneva for years. In nuclear disarmament as in climate change, when powerful countries provide leadership with accountability their example helps others to do likewise.

Sure.  Because you can totally trust countries like Iran and N. Korea. Even if they signed treaties, how would you enforce them?  They’d have the nukes and you wouldn’t.

National Defense should be left to adults who have a biblical worldview.  Those people don’t trust what Jesus said about the world, but that’s no surprise.  Those people think Jesus endorses sodomy and crushing and dismembering innocent human beings if they are unwanted.

Peace through strength, people.

Update: Some views by a Navy Vice Admiral

President Barack Obama was outmaneuvered by the Russians and should have abandoned the New START negotiations instead of seeking a political victory, says former nuclear plans monitor Vice Admiral Jerry Miller, USN (Ret).

 

Media bias manifests itself in many ways

Here’s an example where the media can get a story largely right but still exert their bias with a misleading headline.  See More Palin Bashing: How CNN Misleads With Headlines : Stop The ACLU.

CNN indulged a classic left media tactic by misleading with a headline in a recent piece on former Governor Sarah Palin. The headline, if read by itself, seems to be saying that Sarah Palin delivered a “gaffe-filled message,” when the truth is that her message talked about gaffes, but wasn’t “filled” with them per se. The effect was that the headline made Palin look worse than the story itself did. If all one read was the headline, one would get a far different opinion of what was going on than if one read the story that went with it.

On Nov. 26, CNN delivered this headline on its Political Ticker blog: Palin delivers a gaffe-filled message.

Think about that headline. Doesn’t it say to you that Palin delivered a bunch of gaffes in her message? If all you did was read that headline, you’d think she made a fool of herself with all sorts of incorrect statements in it. One suspects that CNN fully realized this fact.

 

Roundup

A servant’s enduring faith – An inspiring story of a pastor in Bulgaria who wouldn’t give in when the leaders tried to eradicate Christianity.  Here’s a snippet.  I encourage you to read it all.  (Note to fellow Christian bloggers — as Marie noted in the comments, Christianity Today had committed to publish her article and it fell through.  I encourage you to post her link to your blogs if you are so inclined!)

In prison, Kulichev distinguished himself among both guards and prisoners. A vegetarian for health reasons, the pastor refused meat on principle. Kulichev unfailingly knelt in his filthy cell to thank God for each meager bread ration. Assigned with two cellmates to work at the prison sink, he insisted that they wash utensils “as if they were going into our own mouths”. Being absolutely consistent, even in matters with no overt spiritual significance, was his way to maintain integrity. Trusting in God and his parishioners’ faithfulness, Kulichev constantly rehearsed Scripture and seized clandestine witnessing opportunities.

Slaves to Comfort?
Kulichev has traveled widely in the United States, preaching and speaking at conferences. (Several months after interviewing him, I learned from another American that he is proficient in English – a detail he neglected to mention during our time together). While he loves American believers, he is concerned about our tendency to become ‘slaves to our own comfort’. “The freedom in which Christians live is a much bigger temptation than trials,” he said. “A person who has lived in comfort and is used to living without ordeals doesn’t want to lose that way of life. He is prepared to make concessions in his loyalty to God. This mentality goes against what God wants from His flock – obedience and faithfulness, which are not measured in percentages. There is no 50%, 90% or 99% loyalty – a wife would not be pleased if her husband were 50% faithful.”

Here’s a good article on the whole Qu’ran burning debate.  My advice is simple: don’t burn it, just explain why it is wrong and why Christianity is the one true religion.

Even Fidel knows that Communism doesn’t work

Other than imploding Venezuela and frozen in amber North Korea, the USA — known as the Land of Liberty prior to Obama’s “fundamental transformation” — is the only country on earth moving toward the dysfunctional nightmare of communism rather than away from it.

Did you know Ted Kennedy tried — twice — to plot with Soviets against TWO separate US Presidents?
