Everyone is good at heart

NOT!
New Reality
The Bentness of Human Nature


In 1961, psychologist Stanley Milgram devised a now-infamous series of experiments. The goal was to understand why seemingly ordinary men carried out the demonic orders of the Third Reich. In Milgram’s experiments, a volunteer was told to administer electric shocks to another “volunteer” when he answered a question incorrectly. The victim was an actor—there was no electricity. But with each failure, a more powerful the shock was ordered. When volunteers hesitated, an authority figure prodded them, starting with “please continue” and escalating to “you have no other choice, you must go on.” These words were enough for two-thirds of the volunteers to administer what they believed was a fatal shock. When Milgram published the results, the response was outrage, both over the implications of the experiment and Milgram’s methods. Given the notoriety of the Milgram experiments, you’d expect that, if they were repeated today, the results would be different. Well, you would be wrong.

Can't wait for the TV special!

And James Cameron's documentary on the Discovery Channel. And the book deals. And the movie tie-in. That is, until it's found to be nothing special (then you'll hardly hear a peep about it as the scientists slink back to their labs when the press finds something better to foam at the mouth over) but sadly after the damage from the propaganda has already been done:
Fossil DNA Analysis May Have Revealed New Human Species

A 40,000-year-old child's pinky bone found in a Siberian cave probably belonged to a previously unknown human species living near modern humans of the era, a gene study reports today. In the Nature journal study, the pinky bone discovered in the Denisova cave archaeological site in southern Siberia yielded mitochondrial DNA — maternal genes inherited outside of the ones found in cell's chromosomes — unrelated to either humans or their extinct Neanderthal cousins.

Hidden agenda in plain sight

California Asks IRS To Change Tax Code To Accommodate Same-Sex Couples
If the Internal Revenue Service caves to a request from the California Legislature, it could change the tax code for the entire nation. California has issued a joint resolution asking the IRS to defer to state law on how to treat the property belonging to registered domestic partners and same-sex couples. AJR 29 does not have the strength of law, but conveys the Legislature’s opinion. Everett Rice, legislative coordinator with the California Family Council, said such a move by the IRS would set a dangerous precedent. "It’s the stealth way," he said, "of getting around all the states that have said, 'We support marriage between a man and a woman,' and 'Do not redefine it."

Adoption Agencies May Be Forced To Violate Religious Principles
Rep. Pete Stark, D-Calif., has introduced legislation that would force adoption agencies to consider placing children in same-sex households, even if it violates that group's moral and religious values. The bill (H.R. 4806) forces federally funded agencies to ignore sexual orientation, gender identity or marital status when placing children even though studies show kids do best in homes with a married mother and father.

Same-sex 'Divorce' Case Dismissed
The Oklahoma Court of Civil Appeals has said "no" to a lesbian divorce. Legal Counsel Tim Tracey of Alliance Defense Fund (ADF) explains that what was at stake in the case was the validity of Oklahoma's marriage law. "If you look at this situation, it's almost absurd," he comments. "What you have here is a fraudulent attempt to try to undermine the marriage amendment of Oklahoma that was passed by 76 percent of the voters. So you have here a same-sex couple that alleged that they were married in Canada, but yet they could never even produce a marriage certificate." The two still sought a divorce by going through the "back door and trying to get an Oklahoma court to recognize it." "[The court] saw this for what it was," Tracy notes. "It was a fraudulent attempt by a same-sex couple to undermine the voice of the people in Oklahoma, and they dismissed it outright. So we think this is the end of the road for that."

Education Department Buying 12-gauge Shotguns

Civil libertarians are viewing with alarm a decision by the government to purchase dozens of shotguns for representatives of the U.S. Department of Education offices in Washington and Philadelphia, even though the government attests that the 12-gauge weapons are simply to replace other guns. "Viewed in conjunction with the destruction of the Bill of Rights through Patriot Act type legislation, we can see a pattern developing of an emerging Homeland Security state and a total surveillance society," said attorney and former Marine Corps officer Darrell Castle. He was the Constitution Party's 2008 vice president nominee, and told WND the fact the guns are being purchased by and delivered to the U.S. Department of Education is worrisome because of the agency's confirmation it has its own armed security force.

You don't have to wait too long to find an article in the press to help explain why the culture of death is increasingly on the rise in the US given the continued demand for abortion as a "right" and the popularization of assisted suicides (from doctors who have taken the Hippocratic oath!) throughout our country.

'Family Guy' Stages 'Terri Schiavo: The Musical' For Laughs

Seth MacFarlane marked the five-year-anniversary of Terri Schiavo's court-ordered death by staging a preschool musical about it in his crass FOX cartoon, "Family Guy." MacFarlane denied Schiavo human dignity in the March 21 episode by referring to her in lyrics sung by cartoon preschoolers as "the most expensive plant you'll ever see" and a "vegetable," and noted "her mashed potato brains."

Mother Furious After In-school Clinic Sets Up Teen's Abortion

The mother of a Ballard High School student is fuming after the health center on campus helped facilitate her daughter's abortion during school hours.
...
Jill says her daughter, a pro-life advocate, was given a pass, put in a taxi and sent off to have an abortion during school hours all without her family knowing. "We had no idea this was being facilitated on campus," said Jill. "They just told her that if she concealed it from her family, that it would be free of charge and no financial responsibility."

Only Christ saves

You'd think that after a few thousand years of being around that mankind would smarten up a bit. We invent every kind of "ism" known to man to try and explain our existence and soothe are conscience (humanism, existentialism, nihilism, etc.). And, of course, we always try to fallback on science and technology to save us in the end (unfortunately evolution is not science and no amount of advanced, do-everything toasters can give us better lives). For being at the pinnacle of the "evolutionary process," we are undoubtedly the dumbest creatures around because we never seem to learn.

Then Peter, filled with the Holy Spirit, said to them, "Rulers of the people and elders, if we are being examined today concerning a good deed done to a crippled man, by what means this man has been healed, let it be known to all of you and to all the people of Israel that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom you crucified, whom God raised from the dead--by him this man is standing before you well. This Jesus is the stone that was rejected by you, the builders, which has become the cornerstone. And there is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved." [Acts 4:8-12 ESV]

Christian Science Church Seeks Truce On Medicine

Since the founding of their church 131 years ago, Christian Scientists have been taught to avoid doctors at all cost. It is a conviction rooted so deeply in church dogma that dozens of members have gone to jail rather than surrender an ailing person to what they see as the quackery of medical science. But faced with dwindling membership and blows to their church’s reputation caused by its intransigence concerning medical treatment, even for children with grave illnesses, Christian Science leaders have recently found a new tolerance for medical care.

Health Bill May Exempt Top Hill Staffers

The health care reform bill signed into law by President Barack Obama Tuesday requires members of Congress and their office staffs to buy insurance through the state-run exchanges it creates – but it may exempt staffers who work for congressional committees or for party leaders in the House and Senate. Staffers and members on both sides of the aisle call it an “inequity” and an “outrage” – a loophole that exempts the staffers most involved in writing and passing the bill from one of its key requirements.

How can people live this way? Answer: not very well

After reading the following article, I really wanted to find a brick wall and slam my head into. Any sort of unconscious state would be better than having my brain explode given the amount of superfluous garbage contained therein not to mention all the electrons sacrificed in vain to inflict it upon us.

God, Yes; Organized Religion, No
I believe in God, but I believe less and less in organized religion. Christianity is a disappointment, not because of God and not because of Jesus, but because of people.
...
Christians, too many of them, are Christian in name only. Christians have been taught by organized religion, and organized religion and its dogma and doctrine are as far away from the ideal and idea of God that I hold onto as the east is from west.
...
We have an anthropomorphic way of relating to God, and an anthropomorphic way of understanding God, myself included. So, when God does not do our bidding, which is often, we are at a loss. We wrestle with theodicy; we come up wanting.
...
I teach God as I can; how a person receives it (or not) is not up to me. My prayer is that whatever I teach deepens their belief in God, so that when the earth drops from under their feet, as the earth is wont to do from time to time, they will have something more than their fear, anger or confusion to latch onto. I pray that whatever I teach about this mysterious God will sustain them, and that they will not fall into despair. That's all I can do, and frankly, sometimes it feels like it is not even close to being enough.
...
I accept the stories in the Bible as stories, but with inherent lessons that are valuable. I accept that I will not ever understand God. I believe in this God. I believe in Jesus, and I believe that both God and Jesus would hate how organized religion devalues them.
Where to begin? It's like shooting fish in a barrel it's so easy. I guess one could say this is just an attempt at passing off humanism and universalism as a religion unto itself. When you fall back on quoting Niebuhr (who happens to be Obama's favorite theologian - yikes) and Tillich, you know you've fallen off the edge and there's little chance of pulling you back to sanity. Maybe we should just leave it at that because the more I think about the poor author who wrote this, the more pity I feel for her.

WARNING: By clicking on the link below, you agree to hold me and the entire human race free and clear of any repercussions that might ensue should you read the following article (in part or whole). You have been warned! However, if you can keep your head from exploding, it is good for a laugh (not that I think that's what the author had in mind when writing - but hey, we live in a postmodern world).

The Epitomy of Stupidity

Want to know why schools are closing left and right? Want to know why the rest of them are barely able to graduate a decent amount of kids who can barely read at age 18? You'll know why after reading the following article in which the brilliant minds of our day, the ones who control the public education system and what gets taught as "fact," conjure up fairy tales like the one below, publish them in great academic tomes, pat each other on the back and pass them off as "science."

Prehistoric Dads Helped With Child Care
Hands-on fathers may have helped jumpstart the modern human population
The males among our earliest human ancestors may have helped jumpstart the modern human population explosion by helping females with child rearing. This paternal investment resembled the kind of hands-on parenting many dads still display, Northwestern University researcher Lee T. Gettler suggests in a new anthropological model of human evolution. As there are in the modern era, there were some deadbeat dads who didn't lend a hand with child care in the distant past.
...
The study was published in the February issue of the journal American Anthropologist. Dads in early human species would have aided in carrying children, as well as in their bathing, feeding, playing and teaching them the lessons of prehistoric life, says Gettler. They traded these services with the females for access to mating, allowing for monogamy and the modern family structure to develop.
...
Evolutionary biologist and biological anthropologist John Tooby of University of California at Santa Barbara agrees that fatherly care played a decisive role in human evolution. Yet Tooby, who is unaffiliated with Gettler's study, sees paternal investment impacting human dominance as a species not only because humans were able to reproduce more frequently, but because the additional care allowed us to develop better brains.

Census Threat: $5,000 Fines
U.S. congressman slams 'Big Brother' questions
The U.S. Census website for the American Community Survey warns that under Title 13 of the U.S. Code, Section 221, anyone who refuses to answer the 11-page 48-question survey, or who answers the questions with false information, will be subject to a possible $5,000 fine.
...
In an e-mail to WND, [Rep. Ted Poe, R-Texas] repeated his charge that the American Community Survey amounts to an Obama administration attempt to create a "government dossier on American citizens."
...
"The government can take this detailed information about each person who answers the American Community Survey and use that information for its own purposes," he said. "This is Big Brother at its worst. To me, it's an invasion of privacy by the federal government all in the name of taking care of us."

Utter foolishness

So all that's needed for "world peace" is to have people of different religions shoot video about their faiths? Then we sit around the fire holding hands whilst having a "conversation", right?

Tony Blair Faith Foundation Seeks To Bridge Religious Divide
The Tony Blair Faith Foundation has launched a new global film competition to raise the level of understanding between people of different religions. The foundation is inviting young people aged 25 and under from around the world to make a short film demonstrating how their faith inspires them. The films are to be judged by Tony Blair and high profile figures from around the world, including Queen Rania of Jordan, actress Natalie Portman, and preacher and broadcaster Amr Khaled. The three winning films will be premiered at BAFTA in July. The foundation is offering a free portable video camera for the 50 best pitches to enable as many young people as possible to participate. "By gaining insights into the lives of young people across the world this competition has the potential to build bridges across cultural and religious divides," said Blair.

Obama funds (homosexual) education

While he won't lift a finger to continue funding the D.C. school voucher program (you know, the place where the public school system is attrocious by any metric - and that's being kind), Obama is more than willing to increase the funding by tens of millions to his homesexual propaganda czar:

President Obama Wants To Give More Taxpayer Money To Controversial Education Czar
President Obama's proposed budget would allocate $410 million for programs overseen by his new "safe school czar," gay activist Kevin Jennings. That's an increase of $45 million. Family advocates are concerned, because Jennings used the so-called "school climate" phrase as a tool to promote homosexuality in schools as the founder of the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network. Candi Cushman, education analyst with Focus on the Family Action, said parents should be concerned with how Jennings might spend the money. "He's been quoted saying he wants to spend as much as $70 million on so-called 'school climate' projects," she said. U.S. Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa, said the president is not to listening to the outcry over the safe school czar.

We're just friends

There's nothing quite like allowing students of the opposite sex to room together in the college dorms. Ah, to understand the thought processes of liberal academia. And to think this began simply to appease the less than 2% majority of the US population:
College officials say the movement began mainly as a way to accommodate gay, bisexual and transgender students who may feel more comfortable living with a member of the opposite sex.
Want to see where this is headed:
Parents cannot veto such a decision at Harvey Mudd, but Gerbick asks students to discuss it with their families ahead of time. He also asks applicants whether they are romantically involved; all of this year's participants said no. But if they were, the school could not forbid them from rooming together. "If we are going into a post-gender world, then the regulation of private behavior is just not practical," he said.
A post-gender world? Silly me, I forgot that people are not born male and female. We've reached such a point of evolutionary development and mental enlightenment that all are born gender neutral. I guess we've reached the pinnacle of asexual reproduction (I must have missed that signpost somewhere along the way). It is any wonder marriages don't last (or for that matter most people aren't even interested in marriage anymore) and almost 40% of children these days are born out of wedlock?

Mixed-gender Dorm Rooms Are Gaining Acceptance
In the 1970s, many U.S. colleges moved from having only single-sex dormitories to providing coed residence halls, with male and female students typically housed on alternating floors or wings. Then came coed hallways and bathrooms, further shocking traditionalists. Now, some colleges allow undergraduates of opposite sexes to share a room. Pitzer, which began its program in the fall of 2008, is among about 50 U.S. schools with the housing choice, according to Jeffrey Chang, who co-founded the National Student Genderblind Campaign in 2006 to encourage gender-mixed rooms. Participating schools include UC Riverside, UC Berkeley, Stanford, Cornell, Dartmouth, Sarah Lawrence, Haverford, Wesleyan and the University of Michigan. College officials say the movement began mainly as a way to accommodate gay, bisexual and transgender students who may feel more comfortable living with a member of the opposite sex. Most schools say they discourage couples from participating, citing emotional and logistical problems of breakups. Officials say most heterosexuals in the programs are platonic friends.
...
Many schools restrict the option to upperclassmen, to certain floors or to residence halls with gay themes.
...
The pair seem to have a warm brotherly-sisterly friendship and, while they try to be respectful, they say they are not inhibited about being in underwear or even nude while changing clothes in the room.
...
But at colleges, he said, "I think those old-fashioned ways of thinking are kind of dissipating. . . . Over the years, this division between men and women, which was so big, is slowly closing."

Pelosi: 'Once We Kick Through This Door,' More Reform Will Follow

If you have any doubt that the Democratic leadership of the House views passing the current health care reform bill as the beginning, not the end, of the process of creating a national government health care system, just note what Speaker Nancy Pelosi told a group of bloggers on Monday. "My biggest fight has been between those who wanted to do something incremental and those who wanted to do something comprehensive," Pelosi said, according to an account by Washington Post reform advocate Ezra Klein. "We won that fight, and once we kick through this door, there'll be more legislation to follow."

Girl Scouts, run for your lives!

The UN has been working for years to undermine parental rights and attempting to coerce countries into adopting their "sexual education and freedoms" propaganda. If you're involved in Girl Scouts, I think it's safe to say it's time to abandon ship.

Girl Scouts Team Up With Planned Parenthood
Please be aware that the following paragraphs contain graphic and profane advice about sexual activity. But I print it to remind you of just how wicked is the organization who came up with this stuff, Planned Parenthood. For the brochure (entitled, “Healthy, Happy and Hot" and directed at youth who have HIV) not only encourages sexual perversions but quite dangerous perversions at that. And, one other thing, this brochure was distributed with the enabling assistance of the United Nations...and the Girl Scouts of America!
...
The Girl Scouts, along with the YMCA have been co-moderating a young women’s caucus that included an “Intergenerational Conversation” side event on “universal access” and “reproductive health.” One recent Girl Scout project “aims at securing the right of women, men and adolescents aged between ten and twenty-five, to better reproductive and sexual health.”?? Also at CSW last week, the heads of various powerful UN agencies including the UN Population Fund, UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), UN Children's Fund and the World Health Organization released a “UN Joint Statement” under the name of the "UN Adolescent Girls Task Force," which calls for their agencies to promote and support programs "that empower -- adolescent girls, particularly those aged 10 to 14 years."

History in the making

Pay attention people or history might just pass you by. This should be ranked right up there with the rise to power by Hitler, Stalin, Mussolini and all the others who were just doing what was best for their people...
Slaughter House Rules
We're not sure American schools teach civics any more, but once upon a time they taught that under the U.S. Constitution a bill had to pass both the House and Senate to become law. Until this week, that is, when Speaker Nancy Pelosi is moving to merely "deem" that the House has passed the Senate health-care bill and then send it to President Obama to sign anyway. Under the "reconciliation" process that began yesterday afternoon, the House is supposed to approve the Senate's Christmas Eve bill and then use "sidecar" amendments to fix the things it doesn't like. Those amendments would then go to the Senate under rules that would let Democrats pass them while avoiding the ordinary 60-vote threshold for passing major legislation. This alone is an abuse of traditional Senate process. But Mrs. Pelosi & Co. fear they lack the votes in the House to pass an identical Senate bill, even with the promise of these reconciliation fixes.
...
So at the Speaker's command, New York Democrat Louise Slaughter, who chairs the House Rules Committee, may insert what's known as a "self-executing rule," also known as a "hereby rule." Under this amazing procedural ruse, the House would then vote only once on the reconciliation corrections, but not on the underlying Senate bill. If those reconciliation corrections pass, the self-executing rule would say that the Senate bill is presumptively approved by the House—even without a formal up-or-down vote on the actual words of the Senate bill.

When will people open their eyes?

Next up we have two articles trying to drag the ugly truth of pornography out into the light. Unfortunately we have US and UK societies which are so depraved that they will turn a blind eye to evil all in the name of "freedom" and "equality":

In this first article, we get some warm fuzzies about people wrangling over various studies trying to prove what right and wrong is:

The Cost Of Growing Up On Porn

In this second article, no one has to debate what is right and wrong. There can be no debate when word comes from our young women about what the evils of pornography are doing to destroy our future families and therefore society as a whole. I've included some article excerpts so that you can get a glimpse of how bad things are:
Teenage Boys Watching Hours Of Internet Pornography Every Week Are Treating Their Girlfriends Like Sex Objects [UK]

The English verb to chaperone comes from the French noun 'chaperon' - protector - and it is first recorded in Jane Austen's novel Sense And Sensibility, published in 1811. Then, the reputation of a young woman was considered so precious that she was protected at all times if in male company by the presence of another woman: a chaperone. In Jane Austen's world, a young woman and a young man were rarely, if ever, left alone together. Two hundred years later, with sexual and feminist revolutions behind us, we're in a world where there are few, if any, boundaries in place to 'protect' a woman's honour. Women are free to behave as they wish, sleep with whomever they wish, and the vast amounts of sexual content on TV and in films attests to that. In fact, many women would argue that the very idea of being 'chaperoned' is restrictive and demeaning. And yet among today's teenage girls, the chaperone has made a surprising and - as we shall come to see - disturbing comeback.
...
When I spoke to many teenage girls in researching the subject, they told me these demands are both 'disturbing and upsetting', and they are certain they're being fuelled by what their boyfriends are watching online: hard-core, explicit porn. This deeply worrying trend is finally starting to be noticed by those in authority.
...
Psychologist Dr Linda Papadopoulos has just published a government report into the sexualisation of children, and is certain that exposure to porn is having an adverse affect on the lives of today's teenagers. 'My research has left me extremely concerned,' she says.
...
'Boys just want us to do all the stuff they see the porn stars do,' one 16-year-old girl told me. 'It's as if we have to pretend we are in a movie. 'They want us to dress like porn stars in sexy underwear, have bodies that look like porn stars, and sound and behave like them too when we are alone. That's why we like to have our friends around us now.'
...
Another 16-year- old said, rather surprisingly, that while many young girls might moan about their parents being too strict, she actually resented her parents' 'forward-thinking' liberal attitude. 'I wish my parents would say I'm not allowed to be home alone with a boy. I wish they'd say boys aren't allowed in my bedroom. They make this big deal about "trusting us", but that's not helping me. They have no idea what goes on, and I'm too embarrassed to tell them.'
...
'We don't, of course, want a world where we are not equal, like it was in Jane Austen's day. But in some ways we've gone back to inequality anyway because we are not being treated equally when it comes to what boys want from us when we are alone with them.
...
One of the girls in the group I spoke to told me she found an nine-year- old boy she was babysitting watching explicit porn on the family computer when she went to read him his bedtime story.
...
The first group I met were sixth-form boys at a boarding school. Some admitted they did find it a useful way to learn about sex; others told me they sought out the most hardcore material to send to each other 'for a laugh'. When I asked if they felt they were being desensitised by watching so much explicit material, they clearly thought I was a prude. In London, I met another group of boys who told me that they, too, routinely watched porn and that it was a good way of learning about sex and girls. 'It tells us how to act and what they want,' one told me.
...
John Carr agrees. He has for years been campaigning to put in place better measures to protect children from this deluge of pornography, and now, as the generation which has grown up exposed to such a deluge of porn reaches sexual maturity, he fears the consequences. 'It should be very much harder for kids to get at,' he says. 'Having filters already activated at point of sale on all computers is an obvious solution for worried parents. It would be a start.'
Article link: click here (WARNING: graphic photo at top of article)

Ah, yes, the wisdom of the world. What we need are parents who put filters on our computers. That will do the trick! We don't need to instruct our children because our educational systems are doing it for us (ah, NOT). There's no need to preach at people. We must let them forge their own paths and find their own truths. Gag me...

Even as bad as things are getting, most people are totally oblivious. Our society, our educational system, our total lack of self-discipline and, most importantly, our refusal to worship the true God of Christianity is destroying lives. And while our societies are crumbling around us, the people drink in the depravity and ask for more. Anyone who cares to say different is a prude and kill-joy. Parents are so busy in their own sinful lives that they could care less about what their children are doing or being subjected to. Sodom and Gomorrah are now fun places to visit for the entire family.

"You have heard that it was said, 'You shall not commit adultery.' But I say to you that everyone who looks at a woman with lustful intent has already committed adultery with her in his heart. If your right eye causes you to sin, tear it out and throw it away. For it is better that you lose one of your members than that your whole body be thrown into hell. And if your right hand causes you to sin, cut it off and throw it away. For it is better that you lose one of your members than that your whole body go into hell."
[Jesus Christ, Sermon on the Mount, Matthew 5:27-30 ESV]

"Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: neither the sexually immoral, ... nor adulterers, ... will inherit the kingdom of God."
[Paul, 1Co 6:9-10 ESV]

"This Jesus is the stone that was rejected by you, the builders, which has become the cornerstone. And there is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved."
[Peter, Acts 4:11-12]

Headlines Aplenty

I've fallen a little behind so here's the latest round-up of what's been going on...

First up we have President Obama's "faith council" which among them as a whole probably know about 1% of the Bible (and likely don't understand most of that) since they are more concerned with their vacuous social agenda than standing up for the Gospel and God's Word:

President's Faith-Based Group Fails To Mention Abortion

And, of course, there's always good news coming from Uncle Sam:

Oversight Panel Blasts $17.2 Billion Bailout Of GMAC

(I was going to bring up something about hindsight being 20-20 and all but then I remembered there were plenty who said this was a stupid idea but in typical Obama fashion it's all shoot first and ask questions later)

Program To Pay Homeowners To Sell At A Loss

Gov't Workers Feel No Economic Pain

Artificial Stupidity

Before reading this next article, repeat over and over in your head that evolutionists don't have an agenda (they obviously don't have a brain, either, for thinking that our Constitution is quite explicit in banning the teaching of creationism in schools):

Students Who Understand Earth's Geological Age Are More Likely To Accept Human Evolution

In this next story I'm really surprised that health officials are so upset about the continued increase and nationwide high levels of STDs. Obviously the solution is that we're not educating our children enough about "safe sex" or providing too few condoms to our children:

CDC: U.S. Herpes Rates Remain High

Let's not forget about the ongoing "culture of death" within our enlightened society (as if 52 million dead babies is not enough):

Texas Planned Parenthood Holds Gala To Raise Money For Abortion 'Super Center'

Islam continues to make great inroads in our country (and of course it should being the "religion of peace" and all)...

Financial Jihad: How Radical Islam -- Through Wall Street -- Threatens America's Families And Freedom

Radical Imam To Open VA Legislature

Today we have multiple articles to go in the "people are good at heart" folder:

Moviegoer Tells Woman to Stop Talking On Cell Phone, Gets Stabbed In The Neck

Police: Couple Nurtured Virtual Child While Real Baby Starved

New Book

David Kupelian, author of "The Marketing of Evil" has recently released a new book, "How Evil Works: Understanding and Overcoming the Destructive Forces That Are Transforming America":


Considering how good his last book was (it is quite the eye-opener about how our nation has been corrupted by liberal influences who know how to play the system and appeal to human nature) this one will also be on my must-read list.

More "wisdom" from the world:

I wonder how many read this and bought into its pack of lies:

The Nation: On Religion And Reconciliation

The author of the above probably should have read some stats like these but then I guess it's asking too much to actually use the brain God gave her:

This looks pretty interesting:

After reading this depressing piece it's no wonder the Brits are so anti-intellectual:

Here's today's article covering the "religion of peace":

Can anyone spot the disparity between these two article (one written last year and the other this week):

Scientists Unveil Missing Link In Evolution

Report: 'Ida' Fossil Looks Like Lemur, Not Human Ancestor

The "eighth wonder of the world"? Pah-leeze. How sad that the "smart" ones are so desperate to prove their science fiction that they'll grasp onto anything to keep afloat only to end up playing the part of the fool.
For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who by their unrighteousness suppress the truth. For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them. For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse. For although they knew God, they did not honor him as God or give thanks to him, but they became futile in their thinking, and their foolish hearts were darkened. Claiming to be wise, they became fools, and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images resembling mortal man and birds and animals and creeping things. [Romans 1:18-23, ESV]

Pro-Bible Ad Campaign Runs On Fox, MSNBC

A national media campaign to promote the authority of the Bible began running commercials on Fox News, FoxNews.com and MSNBC.com on Monday. The “I Am Not Ashamed” campaign, organized by apologetics ministry Answers in Genesis, will run commercials from March 1 to April 25 featuring individuals from different backgrounds, nationalities, ages and cultures saying they are not ashamed of the Gospel. Organizers hope to convey the message that despite physical differences, people around the world hold in common a respect and appreciation for the relevance of God’s word in today’s world. A print ad campaign will also run in USA Today during that period. The print ad will quote specific Bible verses that address hot-button issues today. Issues that will be addressed include abortion, marriage and religion in the public square.

Earlier this year, the BGEA and Christianity.com launched an “I am a Christian” campaign that calls on believers to declare their faith in Jesus Christ “in a time when God’s truth is being attacked on all sides.” Social media tools such as Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and blogs are also being used to attract participation in the “I am not Ashamed” campaign, and to a lesser extent, in the “I am a Christian” campaign.

Clueless Woman Calls Tech Show When Her Stolen Wi-Fi Disappears

A banner day for the US of A

Another victory for collapsing the foundations of our once great nation thanks to our postmodern, touchy-feely, all smiles and no substance President. This quote from the article just about says it all...
"On Friday, however, White House officials met with 60 members of atheist advocacy group the Secular Coalition for America, to discuss problems that they believe are fueled by religion. The coalition's press release notes that this is the first time an administration has met with a non-theist community."
Atheists Meet With White House Officials

You should be so proud of what you've acheived in just over a year in office, Mr. President.

How can you tell when Pelosi is lying?

When you see her lips moving...

Is Nancy Pelosi a rabid right wing extremist, Hitler-loving, racist, radical voiced, birther-believing, unruly puppet behaving un-American Tea Partier?

More hypocrisy from the left when their liberal agendas back them into a corner where they'll make a pact with the devil to get out.
