How would the founders have dealt with the ACLU?
As the majority of Americans prepare to celebrate the birth of Jesus, the distant left is diverting their attention from Sarah Palin’s Nielsen ratings to the annual effort to eradicate Christmas from public life.
Thanks in large part to the passivity of Christian America, over the last decade the ACLU has managed to suppress many of our country’s Christmas traditions.
The fallacious separation of church and state argument is the usual justification and the religious principles and convictions of America’s founders have been distorted to the point that atheists and secularists are widely propagating the idea that the founders would have had no reverence for Christmas because “the majority of the founders were not even Christian”.
It’s not hard to disprove this nonsense, but at this time of year it is particularly joyful to do so. And the writings of most of America’s founders exhibit an intensity of faith that today’s Christians would do well to emulate.

The impact of Congress’ repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell
Democrat’s liberal lame duck party ended on a high note with more social engineering of the US military. Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell was “conditionally repealed” by a 65-31 vote in the senate. Open homosexuality (kissing? camping Liberace?) will not be permitted until the president, secretary of defense and head of the Joint Chiefs of Staff can certify a permanent repeal “will not impair military readiness”. Gee, wonder how that will turn out?
Republican votes included RINO stalwarts Snowe ME, Collins ME, Murkowski AK, Voinovich OH and Scott Brown MA, plus Obama replacement Kirk IL, and for some reason, Ensign NV and Burr NC.
While the media has bandied about polls which would seemly indicate that the average soldier has been clamoring for “homosexual rights”, an Army Lieutenant Colonel has submitted his resignation in opposition to Congress’ repeal of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell.
What will be the ultimate effect of forcing open homosexuality upon our military?

That paltry “1% of the budget” amounts to $16 Billion
Our representatives in congress are getting fed up. Especially republicans. They kowtowed to the rubes on the right during the campaign, swearing off the GOP’s disgraceful spending excesses when last in power. Fiscal responsibility, spending cuts and balanced budgets – republicans said what we wanted to hear.
But now we the people for some reason expect a say in how congress spends/wastes our tax dollars. And the electorate’s first demand is, of all things, an end to one of congress’s most beloved perks – Earmarks.
Last week our senators made it clear that’s going too far. The senate, including eight republicans, voted down a measure banning earmarks. And after all, what are we the rubes hollering about anyway? As senators of both parties keep harping, earmark expenditures amount to only 1% or so of the budget. Why just look at this chart you …you …you right wing idiots. Peanuts!
That paltry 1%, however, amounts to over 16 Billion dollars. And the problem, senators, is that you think that $16 billion belongs to you.

In other words, Is Mormonism a Christian religion?
“It is not a unity of religion we seek but a union of religious people. We may not be able to meet in the same pew, but we can meet together on our knees”- Archbishop Fulton J Sheen.
Since opinions seem to differ amongst amateur theologians, let’s just ask: As a Mormon is Glenn Beck a) a Christian, b) a non-Christian, c) somewhere in between, d) a pagan, e) just a #@!^&# conservative?
Mormon bigotry in Christian America is hardly unheard of. Prior to the 2008 primaries some registered republicans in Iowa received “Christmas cards” wishing them Merry Christmas from “Mitt Romney and his wives”.
As organizer of the 8/28 Restoring Honor interfaith rally, and a radio/television commentator who unabashedly wears his Mormon faith on his shirt sleeve, Glenn Beck is the latest prominent personality to prompt the question “is Mormonism a Christian religion”?
