…But It Helps.
Do I believe God is real, yes! do I believe he can heal the sick? Of course!
An Israeli woman and her doctor say they believe the malignant, rapidly growing cancerous tumor in her leg was healed by prayer.
Therese Daoud recounted her experience to Israel’s Channel 2 on Friday night after she was diagnosed with a malignant tumor in her leg. After the surgery to amputate her limb was canceled three times for bureaucratic reasons, the devout Christian woman believed it was a sign that she should forego medical intervention and instead pray.
Miraculously when she arrived at her next screening five months after her initial diagnosis, doctors discovered her tumor had completely disappeared.

There’s nothing like the holidays for laughing at anti-religious malcontents being driven to madness by the thought of Christians and Jews celebrating their faiths. Crosses, menorahs, happy people with satisfying personal lives – these things drive the militant atheists into a sputtering rage.
Watching them fume is the gift that keeps on giving.
Normal atheists just don’t believe in God, and those of us who do, figure that’s between them. They respect our religion and we respect their right to have no part of it. Sure, some religious folks talk to people about their faith, but it’s not clear why someone advocating his beliefs to another is committing a terrible faux pas. After all, the believer believes he’s trying to do the recipient a favor. The proper response if one is uninterested isn’t exaggerated indignation but a polite, “No thanks.”
That’s how things should work in a pluralistic society where people believe different things. Sometimes you come into contact with people who don’t share your ideas. We call that “diversity” – not the bogus “crush all opposition to progressivism” diversity of the left but real American diversity. The key is not to be a jerk – that goes for both the person sharing his views and the person hearing them.
But jerkiness is the difference between the decent guy who’s just not feeling the connection with the Lord and the smug militant atheist who thinks that putting a fish sticker with legs that says “Darwin” on his Prius is biting social commentary.
Odds this was unintentional hovering around zero percent.
WASHINGTON – One nation under God? Under President Obama, maybe not so much.
In advance of the 150th anniversary of the Gettysburg Address, which President Abraham Lincoln delivered on November 19, 1863, filmmaker Ken Burns gathered every living President, along with several prominent members of Congress, celebrities and news media stars to deliver the address themselves. Burns edited the individual speeches into one final mashup that is available on the site, but he also provided the complete speech as delivered by each individual dignitary.
Curiously enough, in his version of the speech, President Barack Obama’s delivery contained an omission – in a line that every other celebrity delivered as “that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom” (click here for proof of that), the President left out the words “under God.”
You can see the President’s reading of the Gettysburg speech here – his omission at the 1:35 mark.
Ah yes, the favorite two words Leftists use to Conservatives are shut up! Shut up or we will call you a racist, or Homophobe, or sexist, or try to ruin your good name in some other way. In this case it seems that it is shut up or I will “out” you. RS McCain has the details
North Carolina Democrats have apparently adopted the radical motto “By Any Means Necessary” in their war to destroy conservative opposition, as the intimidation tactics employed by Democrat operative Greg Flynnagainst a citizen-activist make clear:
So, what has Lady liberty done to draw the ire of miscreant bullies like Flynn? Why she dared to oppose Common Core, so she must pay.
Lady Liberty is a blogger, but she is also a mother worried about herchildren. Greg Flynn (an editor at the left-wing blog BlueNC.com, aformer employee of the state department of education and a Democrat Party activist) apparently decided that identifying Lady Liberty by name would be a good way to shut her up, exposing her family to harassment from his radical Democrat allies. Every conservative in North Carolina — no, by God, every conservative in America — should be mad as hell aboutGreg Flynn‘s vicious intimidation tactics.
Every blogger needs to speak out on her behalf.
Hell yes we do! And I think we have two choice words for the Greg Flynns of the world. When they say Shut Up, we should all answer Fuck Off!
And, as this story illustrates, it is usually being perpetrated by the Statists on the Left! Stacy McCain suspects The
Lutheran Radical Atheist Menace?
(Memphis) Memphis mother Erica Shead said she was angry after her 10-year-old daughter Erin, told her Wednesday, she wasn’t allowed to write about God for a school assignment.
“It was so cute and innocent. She talked about how God created the earth and how she’s doing the best she can,” said Shead.
Erin is a student at Lucy Elementary.
Shead said Erin was told she can’t use God as an idol for the assignment.
She said her daughter was told to start over and pick another idol.
“But my teacher said I couldn’t write about God. She said It has something to do with God and God can’t be my idol,” said Shead about what her daughter told her.
Erin told her mother she was also not allowed to leave the assignment about God at school, that it must go home.
On the second try, Erin chose Michael Jackson, which was acceptable.
“How can you tell this baby, that’s a Christian, what she can say and what she can’t say?”
Shead took her concerns to the school principal at Lucy Elementary Wednesday morning.
“Can you show me this in a policy where this child cannot talk about God on paper,” asked Shead.
Either the teacher is being thrown under the Shut the Hell Up You Christ-o-Fascists Bus, or the teacher is a radical that figured she could bully a little girl.
We reached out to Shelby County Schools Wednesday.
Spokesman Christian Ross said teachers can’t promote religion, but there is not a policy preventing students from writing assignments about any God or religion.
School officials wouldn’t say what would be done to correct the situation, since it appears the teacher was in the wrong.
So, the teacher IF it was the teacher’s call, ought to be fired YESTERDAY! But, I hope this mother pushes hard enough to find out the truth. This kind of Left-Wing child abuse MUST stop!
Now, the update the school is trying to weasel out by playing the “misunderstanding card”
“Shelby County Schools respects the moral and religious beliefs of all students and families. While teachers and staff are not permitted to promote religion in the classroom, no laws or district policies allow teachers to limit students’ expression of religious beliefs in their personal classwork. This was a regrettable misunderstanding, and we as educators must learn from it. The principal and teacher have had a positive and productive conversation with the family, and we are pleased this matter is being addressed at the school level. The district will not be discussing this matter further in the media.”
In other words, the school does not want any more negative publicity. Well, I hope, again, that this is pushed until someone, or multiple someones gets the boot! Anyone who would try to bully that girl should not be a teacher, PERIOD! This was not a mistake, this was a bigot trampling a little girl’s liberty!
The Other McCain sums it up, this is not education but RE-education!
Hostility toward religion — rejection of the Bible and of divine authority — is essential to the project of modern public education.
Lesson One: There is no God.
Lesson Two: Your parents are stupid.
Lesson Three: Being gay is awesome.
Whatever comes after that is optional, but it’s important that thesefundamental principles be taught in elementary school, or otherwise children might grow up to vote Republican.
And that would be a tragedy . . .
Especially, it seems if we are in an elevator. Stacy McCain has the sordid details
First, it seems that Rebecca Watson rates as the total smokin’ hotness of atheist chickdom. Atheist guys get all torqued up when they see awkward nerd chicks with magenta-tinted hair, and Rebecca’s been driving ‘em wild with her weekly online videos.
Second, why did Watson feel the need to lecture the world of atheist guys about how it “creeps me out and makes me uncomfortable when men sexualize me in that manner”? Here is the failed pick-up line that triggered it:
“Don’t take this the wrong way, but I find you very interesting, and I would like to talk more. Would you like to come to my hotel room for coffee?”
And this offended her? Good grief. Go read the rest at The Other McCain. As an aside, I guess this means my plans to score with hot Atheist chicks by hanging out in elevators is foiled! DAMN!
God help us, we have lost our minds
A Texas teenager who has been in jail since March faces an eight-year prison sentence because of a threatening joke he made while playing an online video game.
In February, Justin Carter was playing “League of Legends” — an online, multiplayer fantasy game — when another player wrote a comment calling him insane. Carter’s response, which he now deeply regrets, was intended as joke.
“He replied ‘Oh yeah, I’m real messed up in the head, I’m going to go shoot up a school full of kids and eat their still, beating hearts,’ and the next two lines were lol and jk,” said Jack Carter, Justin’s father, in a statement to a local news channel.
The statements “lol” and “jk” — meaning “laughing out loud” and “just kidding” — indicate that Justin’s statement was entirely sarcastic, said his father.
But a Canadian woman who saw the post looked up Carter’s Austin address, determined that it was near an elementary school, and called the police. Carter was arrested one month later, and has been in jail ever since. He recently celebrated his 19th birthday behind bars.
Authorities charged him with making a terrorist threat. If convicted, he will face eight years in prison.
“These people are serious. They really want my son to go away to jail for a sarcastic comment that he made,” said the elder Carter.
Good Freaking Grief
They have branded her a whore, but what strikes me as funny here is that if the Westboro Bastards REALLY want to see whores, they need only look in their mirrors, because they are nothing but publicity whores
For years, Westboro Baptist Church has been accused of homophobic hatred because of their infamous “God Hates Fags” protests. Finally, they’ve decided to get serious about heterosexual sin:
Yes, that’s right: THE WHORISH FACE OF DOOMED AMERICA, the pop-country star formerly known as Taylor Swift, has been guilty of “hopping from one young man to the next and strutting across the world stage like a proud whore,” according to the WBC press release.
Here is my final thought on the WBC
Oh Stacy McCain, having fun at the expense of Amanda Marcotte, who like so many Feminists, suffers from Eternal Bitternes Syndrome. Stacy’s annual “Offend a Feminist Week” is underway, so he, and other bloggers like me for example, are having fun mocking the hysterical, emotionally womyn like Marcotte
What did Mitt say to provoke Marcotte’s bizarre rant? He simply gave this advice to college seniors: “If you meet someone you love, get married. Have a quiver-full of kids if you can.” But Amanda Marcotte hates babies. She is such a bloodthirsty enthusiast for abortion that one imagines that she would have paid Kermit Gosnell for the opportunity to come to his clinic and help kill babies.
Amanda Marcotte is not “pro-choice.” She is pro-death.
Did I mention that this is National Offend a Feminist Week? Many other blogs have joined in recognition of this fifth annual event:
- That Mr. G Guy, who called our attention to Marcotte’s deranged “eugenics” idiocy.
- Chris Wysocki exposes the myth of the “pay gap.”
- Doug Hagin at Daley Gator, who understands that nothing offends feminists as much as beauty.
- Bob Belvedere, who brings the Shake, Rattle and Roll.
What sane person, male or female, could admire the heartless, hateful ideology of cruelty that Amanda Marcotte represents? Over the years, I have occasionally been forced to cope with silly arguments from silly people who think there is some kind of “moderate” or “mainstream” feminism — even, God help us, “conservative feminism” — but what these people don’t understand is that feminism is what it has always been, a radical doctrine of the extreme Left.
One final thought about angry Feminuts like Marcotte. they do not want to empower women. Any woman who thinks or says anything that deviates from approved Feminist propaganda is attacked and ridiculed by the likes of Marcotte. Feminists like Marcotte hate men, and hate to see normal relations between men and women. Feminists like Marcotte want to control women through their propaganda, and to control men through guilt trips. In short, Feminism is just another tool for Far-Left Statists to use to control people.
Out -A Day of Prayer. In- A Day of “Reason”
Charlotte Mayor Anthony Foxx, who President Barack Obama tapped Tuesday to be the next transportation secretary, just declared Thursday “A Day of Reason” in his home city, and asked Charlotte’s citizens to observe the day.
May 2 is traditionally the National Day of Prayer, a government-designated religious event designed to encourage people to “turn to God in prayer and meditation.”
But Foxx argued in his proclamation May 2 was better served as A Day of Reason because “the application of reason, more than any other means, has proven to offer hope for human survival on Earth.”
Several current and former lawmakers have also expressed their support for the day, including Rep. Michael Honda, D-Calif., Delegate Eleanor Holmes Norton, D-D.C., and former Rep. Pete Stark, D-Calif.
Now, ask yourself this. If a Republican suggested we replace a “Day of Reason” with a “Day of prayer” would Democrats be OK with it? Or would they raise Hell and scream for “tolerance”?
There are certain truths in life, maybe I will make a list of them one day, kind of like Rush Limbaugh did years ago, but for now, allow me to focus on just one of these truths. Leftists HATE God. Yes, I know any Leftist reading this will howl in outrage. They will say that they merely wish to keep the “separation” of church and state that our Founders placed in the Constitution. Of course, the fact that there is no such separation never stops Leftists, and Liberals, who are just Leftists in training from finding it. And, sadly, enough Leftists judges have also found, or rather imagined, or maybe invented is a better term, such a constitutional standard.
Now, you might be thinking that just because the Left gets the Constitution wrong does not necessarily mean that they hate God. And I would agree, if, and this is a massive if, the Left did not spend so much time trying to use that imaginary clause in the Constitution to stamp out every last mention of God in the public realm. The sad fact is that wherever you can find a display of the Ten Commandments in a school, or a public park, or a courthouse, you will find an outraged Atheist speed dialing the ACLU, or some other Left wing organization. The sad fact is that these same miscreants have done their level best to erase Christmas displays anywhere. In an odd twist, these very same Intolerants will gladly tell you that Santa Claus, and Christmas Trees are NOT Christian symbols, but rather pagan, or secular symbols of the “Winter Solstice”, or whatever generic name they are currently using for CHRISTmas! But, let a city put Santa and his reindeer up in a city park, or let a school have a Christmas party, or even dare to have red and green cups and napkins at that party and the same freak shows will be screaming to high Heaven. Come on, make up your minds already.
Again, the excuse often used for waging war on cup cakes with the dreaded red or green icing at a school party, or for raising hell over a manger scene or a Christmas Tree in the local library, is that someone might be, hold your breath, offended! The right not to be offended is another right found in the Constitution according to Leftist’s deluded mind. Of course that right against having your feelings hurt only protects Leftist whiners and agitators from offense. Every one else, A.K.A. Normal Americans are not protected. Odd isn’t it? The Left will argue passionately about fairness and equality, until something they do offends a normal American. then the “right not to be offended” morphs into the right to fuck off and die.
For those still not convinced that the Left hates God let me give you on more item to ruminate on. The Left wraps itself up in the first amendment, especially the freedom of speech part. It also wraps itself up in the “community”. Leftists are always talking about community, the Black Community, the Hispanic Community, the LGBT Community, this community that community. But let the Normal American Community express themselves by putting up a war memorial in a city park that dares to mention God in any way, even if that is just a simple cross, and the same Leftists are there to try to take that memorial down.
So, the Left loves fairness, and equality, they hate when anyone is offended, they love freedom of expression, and “community”, as long as it benefits their agenda. And in this case erasing public mentions or displays of Christianity IS the sole agenda. So, what else can we assume here but that Leftists hate God. But, why do they hate God? Why would radical Atheists be so vehement about forcing everyone else to submit to their beliefs? Note, I said radical Atheists because most Atheists really do not give a flip about a Santa Claus in a park. They do not believe, and do not have time to worry about your beliefs, which is fine with me. So, again the question. Why do Leftists hate God? Well, because they hate liberty and individualism.
Think of America. Is there a greater target for Leftist hate than America? Is there a nation more maligned among Leftists than America? The answer is no. And, when you dissect all the protests against America, you find a common theme. The hatred of liberty. And where does liberty, as honored in America come from? Liberty comes from God. The American ideal is that we are created with certain rights. These rights have a source, and that source is God. Nothing will agitate a Leftists more than any value system that dares challenge their core ideal, that rights are NOT individual rights. Leftists hold that rights are collective, and that these rights come not from God, but from government. And as the source of these collective rights, government can restrict, limit, or take certain rights at will.
So it comes down to a basic, fundamental issue. If the Individualists are right, then God is the source of our rights, and those rights are inherently OURS. If Individualists are correct, then government does not have the authority to give, take, or restrict these natural rights. To a Leftist/Collectivist, the source of all our rights is government, and all those right are collective. Leftists can never form their Utopian State as long as we, the people recognize God as the source of our liberty. So, for that Utopia to grow God must go. That is why Leftists hate God.
The Founders would use more eloquent language, but I think A Nod to the Gods has captured their spirit here
To those who will argue that I should use more “respectful” language I would pose one question. Do those miscreants seeking to deprive Americans of the right of self-defense have “respect” for our rights, or for the Constitution? Do they respect the truth when they deliberately lie about the number of times Americans use firearms to defend themselves? Do they respect honest debate when they seek to ram through legislation that would limit, or eliminate entirely my God-given natural rights? Do they show me any respect when they paint me, and other gun owners as nuts? Do they show us respect when they falsely seek to blame us for horrific tragedies like Newtown? The answer is no. So, why do I owe tyrants, seeking to rob my natural rights any damned respect?
Indeed, “fuck you” is the very sentiment which spawned this great nation. If it hadn’t been for our forefathers’ “fuck you” mentality, the Boston Tea Party never would have happened. Saying “fuck you” to authority is what America is all about. In fact, the U.S. citizenry is the most profoundly “fuck you”-oriented society on Earth… by tradition. Hell, “fuck you” was the thought that finally motivated Rosa Parks to move to the front of the bus. Our general “fuck you” attitude has helped sustain us as a people for generations, and if by chance you don’t happen to agree with everything I just wrote, then “fuck you” too!
Dear Lord! These are children, children arguing who the biggest victim is. Look up the word pathetic in the dictionary, these people will be there. And yes, that one chick will still be topless. Put a freaking shirt on for the love of Pete!
Blazing Cat Fur reports that there is a second video, God help us
Because a baby could have gotten in the way of his career or something. What a miserable piece of filth!
“In some ways that choice saved my life,” Toure said.
He said he was extremely thankful abortion was an option because wasn’t ready to be a dad and going through with the pregnancy would have just made “a mess of three lives” because she “wasn’t the one.”
“I thank God and country that when I fell into a bad situation, abortion was there to save me and keep me on a path toward building a strong family I have now. And I pray that safety net stays in place,” Toure said.
Being able to choose to have an abortion makes for a “stronger America,” he concluded.
Gee I guess making a “mess” of their lives never occurred to them BEFORE they made a baby? But, Hell, consequences are like sooooo inconvenient! I mean how could Toure have ever become the bottom feeding junior race pimp in training if he had to take responsibility for the life he helped create? Bottom line is this. People like Toure are evil, sorry it is true. They place their convenience over the sanctity of human life. Such moral retardation does not make Toure a thinker or introspective, and it damn sure does not make him a person who respects women. One more point, it is odd that a man so obsessed with his own skin color would go on TV and celebrate the killing of an innocent little Black baby. A baby denied the ultimate right because it was unfortunate enough to be created by two self-absorbed people.
