News Flash: Presidential Candidates are Human!

I don’t get it, how come we get in a huge fuss when we find out that a Presidential candidate changes their mind on a particular issue?  News Flash:  THEIR HUMAN!  I’m tired of all the “you used to believe this” rhetoric that candidates play.

For example, if a candidate was once pro-choice, but at some point became pro-life, we are expected to think that is a big deal.  I for one have changed my opinion on that issue multiple times.  I mean, as we live more life, I think we are entitled to form opinions, re-evaluate them, and changed them if we like.

It’s like politicians are supposed to come out of the womb with all our views and beliefs programmed like some robot.  Give me a break people.  A man changing his opinion is not a character flaw.

Do yourself a favor in this election, find out the current stance your favorite candidates have on certain issues and then make your decision based on that…and hey, if you change your mind on who you want to vote for, you don’t have to worry about me causing a fuss!

December 20, 2007, Washington, DC – This morning, Santa Claus (in the person of noted constitutional lawyer Bill Goodman) drove his sleigh to the White House to deliver thousands of copies of the U.S. Constitution to President Bush.

Americans from all over the country – more than 37,000 of them – asked that a copy of the Constitution be delivered to the President in their name and cordially requested that he make time in his busy schedule to read it.  read more

There’s No Ceiling on This Church

Wake-Up! It’s time for CHURCH!

These word echo throughout countless homes throughout the world. The idea of Church is now accompanied by images of early Sunday mornings with the family; one less day to sleep in.

Surely this isn’t the approach everyone takes, but there is a good chance that you have felt this way at *least* one time in your church-going career.

But you know now that Church is more than an inconvenience to the sleeping schedule.  But did you also know that Church is more than a building? In fact, the Church has no walls, no ceiling, and no ground!

This is hard for some people to understand. Yet it is true, the Church is not a building for worship, instead, it refers to the commonality of those who are united through the spirit of Christ.

Denominations, buildings, pews…these are man-made items and institutions. Jesus built the church without wood or money. Jesus built his church through faith.

The Christian faith, despite it’s innumerable variations, is still united in spirit by one fundamental belief:

Jesus, the most righteous being ever, is the living son of God, and he died on a cross as atonement for the flaws of mankind.

This very notion is so powerful that it unites billions of people over our great planet. The Church is this unification, the Church is not confined by walls or men, but is inside every human being (even those who don’t realize it).  The Church can’t be confined. It flows like water, dripping its sweet satisfaction on those willing to seek it, quenching the entire soul of humanity.

Huckabee: women’s role in marriage is to “graciously submit”

Huckabee’s opinion on gay marriage is out there, but we should also be publicizing Huckabee’s opinions on heterosexual marriage. Specifically, what he believes about a women’s role in a marriage.

In August of 1998, Huckabee was one of 131 signatories to a full page USA Today Ad which declared: “I affirm the statement on the family issued by the 1998 Southern Baptist Convention.” What was in the family statement from the SBC? “A wife is to submit herself graciously to the servant leadership of her husband even as the church willingly submits to the headship of Christ.”

The ad wasn’t just a blanket, “we support the SBC statement,” but rather highlighted details. The ad Huckabee signed specifically said of the SBC family statement: “You are right because you called wives to graciously submit to their husband’s sacrificial leadership.”

Add “graciously submit” to his “Take back the nation for Christ” statement, and if the media does its job, he’s well on his way to being toast.

How will I secure the boarder? Two Words: Chuck Norris

So usually I get down to the more controversial, or serious matters on this site. Well, not today. I came across this video today and thought it was hilarious! For those of you who don’t know, Chuck Norris has experienced a resurgence in his career from the 18-30yr old crowd. Check out this video from the Mike Huckabee campaign:

Silly Scientology

So it appears that Germany is starting the process of banning scientology from their country.  I for one don’t mind that this is happening, being that it is a “religion” thought up by a science fiction writer (jailed for fraud) in a scam to get rich… but hey, maybe some people, such as Tom Cruise, get something out of it.

So what are you thoughts on this though?  Is this a hinderence of Democracy?  Germany is claiming that the cult doesn’t adhere to the German constitution, but who should make such a decision.  I mean, in the United States we allow the KKK to assemble even though they deny the self-evident right for a man to pursue happiness (and also deny the fact that all men are created equal).

Just wanted to throw out the topic since it has hit headlines… let me know if you have any particular feelings on the issue.

Flip-Flopping Romney?

For anyone who wasn’t able to catch Mitt Romney’s speech on faith, I recommend that you go to his website to watch it. I believe it was the best speech by a politician thus far. I never had an qualms about his faith to begin, but if I did, I think the speech would help a little bit.

Many reviews of his speech claim that Romney looked more presidential than any other candidate to date. I would agree, yet it really isn’t that important. What is important are the issues of course (unfortunately, many people don’t realize this).

But what about flip-flopping? Oh, the dreaded term that destroyed Kerry’s campaign. Well, it appears that Mitt has potentially dug himself a hole (should anyone pick up on it):

“I do not define my candidacy by my religion. A person should not be elected because of his faith, nor should he be rejected because of his faith,” – Mitt Romney, at the George Bush Presidential Library and Museum today.

And then there is this:

“We need to have a person of faith lead the country,” – Mitt Romney, February 17, 2007.
