Increasing the power and influence of radical Islam
“We have intervened to stop a massacre” is belied by the president’s no see evil policy in Syria, Iran, North Korea and several countries in Africa. Libyan dictator Moammar Gadhafi has, in fact, been a rather benign despot compared to those regimes. The obvious difference is simply that Gadhafi hasn’t the means to retaliate or even threaten the US.
Taking it one step further, Barack Obama seems interested in only backing popular uprisings in Arab nations that are not already under the heel of Islamic dictatorships. “Change” is indeed coming to the Middle East.

The President’s undermining of DOMA leaves no choice
Last month as the economy continued to crumble and the Middle East went up in flames, President Obama took time from his busy vacation schedule to order the Justice Department not defend challenges to the Defense Of Marriage Act.
DOMA, the president asserts, is “unconstitutional”. Mr Obama taught a whole year of constitutional law, so apparently he feels qualified to settle the matter.
The fact is that by refusing to defend our laws, Mr Obama is abdicating one of the primary responsibilities of the presidency. And this vigilantism from the White House prompts us to update our call for congress to pass a Constitutional Amendment protecting marriage

The Catholic Church erroneously hands ammunition to the left
We often cite the ongoing spiritual war for the very soul (the Christian faith), lifeblood (the unborn) and fabric (the family) of our nation. And, as in any war, the officers are targeted by the enemy.
Silencing or discrediting prominent Evangelicals and members of the Catholic Clergy who speak out forcefully for Christ, life and the family are a priority for the forces of liberalism and secularism waging war on America. And few of our “officers” are as prominent, or as effective, as Father John Corapi.
One of the Catholic Church’s most charismatic evangelists and outspoken defenders, there’s no equivocating in Father Corapi’s message. America is engaged in spiritual warfare against Satan, abortion is nothing less than genocide and homosexual marriage is an abomination.
The Vatican’s version of General George Patton, Father Corapi has long been a target of the left. And now they’ve struck.

Safeguard your donation to the Japanese people
New Orleans, Haiti, Chile and now Japan. Once again there will be an outpouring of generosity to fund the massive relief effort for the stricken Japanese people. Millions of American dollars will help to provide the search and rescue teams, medical personnel and supplies, food, water, clothing and temporary shelter required to sustain the earthquake and tsunami survivors. Millions of dollars more will be needed to rebuild Japan’s shattered infrastructure.
Every one of those dollars will be crucial to the success of the relief efforts. But once again, as with the above mentioned natural disasters, millions of America’s donated dollars will be lost to fraud and mismanagement.

The soul, life blood and fabric of our nation – faith, life and the family
Yesterday the senate voted down both the republican and democrat budget proposals. The demagogocrats called republican spending cuts “draconian”, while republicans, moderate democrats and independents rightly labeled the token cuts proposed in the democrat budget a joke. Nothing got done.
And so it will hopefully go over the next two years, with the Tea Party led House, and a few conservative senators, stalling the Obama socialist steamroller.
But that still leaves our country on the precipice of disaster domestically and facing dire threats abroad from the rapid spread of radical Islam and the growing economic and military power of Communist China.
It should be clear by now the we cannot solve our nation’s ever growing problems solely by political means. A spiritual battle also factors in the struggle. And if we lose the spiritual battle, we will surely lose our country.

The power of the baptized in Christ acting and praying in unison
The Christian Post reported last week that Said Musa, the Afghan Red Cross worker who had been sentenced to hang for converting to Christianity, seems to have been freed.
Aidan Clay, of International Christian Concern, told the Christian Post “I got confirmation today that he is out of the country… It’s done. He’s out”. Clay also stated the Said Musa was now living in another country, presumably with his family who reportedly fled Afghanistan a couple of weeks ago.
Several similar reports have appeared online, but all citing the same source, a friend of Clay’s who had visited Said Musa in prison. Before posting a successful resolution to the case, we had hoped for multiple confirmations or word from Said Musa himself.
Though all reports continue to cite the one source, there seems to be a general feeling that Musa is indeed free.

Christianity is the Cross
As America’s fortunes continue to deteriorate at home and in the Middle East, it is truly time to turn more of our attention to the Christian aspects of the Christian Conservative Spectator. And there is no more appropriate place to begin than with the Cross.
No symbol in history has evoked such a wide range of overpowering emotions – faith, love, heartrending gratitude, unworthiness, grief, shame, bitterness, fear, anger and hatred. Our individual reaction to contemplation of a Cross or Crucifix will, for the most, part define the current state of our personal relationship with God. When we gaze upon a Cross or Crucifix, Jesus speaks to us.
“This how much I love you. How much do you love Me?”
