Prideful, self righteous conservatives and Christians turned their back on America
The morning of November 7 Christians across America asked themselves “how could God have let this happen”?
Millions had prayed and voted to end Obamacare, the HHS Contraception Mandate, and Barack Obama’s barbarous abortion promulgating policies. Prayer vigils, family Rosaries, national novenas, a massive outpouring of heartfelt prayers across our country that were seemingly ignored by God.
But of course the problem was not with God. It is we who let Him down. It wasn’t the Latino vote, union vote, or Sandra Fluke vote that defeated Mitt Romney.
It was a few million prideful Christian conservatives who handed the last election our country may ever see to Barack Obama.

Coming to terms with the disheartening results of the election so many put body and soul into
In August I began working for the Romney Campaign in Nevada. Starting with four hours a day, I joined hundreds of others across the state registering Mitt Romney supporters. It soon became a full time effort, eventually canvassing door to door, seven days a week, right through election day.
This occupied most of the time usually devoted to RC.org. But blogging was not going to be enough to help overturn Obamacare and the Contraception Mandate, end US taxpayer funding of abortions here and around world, defend the sanctity of marriage and the family, and restore some degree of fiscal sanity and moral decency to our government.
Should our anti-Christian, abortion mongering, communist President somehow win re-election, I wanted at least to be able tell myself that I had done everything within my power to oppose it.

Only the man at the top could have ordered striking the name of God from the DNC Platform
The media is perpetually enraged over polls which indicate millions of Americans do not believe Barack Obama to be a Christian. But it is Mr Obama himself who seems intent on raising those millions of doubts.
Rarely attending church and known for reiterating at every opportunity that “America is not a Christian nation”, as our President, Barack Obama’s only references to the Bible have been a few hilariously transparent attempts to twist the meaning of Sacred Scripture to justify tax increases.
So it actually came as little surprise when word was leaked that Democrats had deleted a previous single reference to “God” from their 2012 National Platform.
This was, of course, a political disaster. So last night LA Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa was given the thankless task of asking a DNC crowd, laden with anti-Christian delegates, to restore the name of God to the Democrat’s platform.
As seen in this video, the response was pretty much what one would expect from the party of secularism, rape, death, and taxes.

President Obama has just learned the hard way – Don’t Cross The Clintons
It was reported this week that President Obama asked Secretary Of State Hilary Clinton to step in and replace Less Than Average Joe Biden as the President’s running mate. Ms Clinton unceremoniously turned her President down.
After being on the receiving end of one of Mr Obama’s classic Chicago-style smear campaigns in the 2008 primaries, the Clintons have not been among the President’s warmest admirers. Proper and polite, but reputed to be patiently waiting for the opportunity to give their party leader a good old fashioned dose of Clinton-style political justice.
And as this video clip makes abundantly clear, leaving the President’s reelection campaign saddled with Biden is certainly a nasty start.

The president’s sealed college records are likely concealing more than his grades
Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain in the White House. With America on the way to economic collapse, he would like the 2012 election campaign to focus on contraception, homosexual marriage, Bain Capital, and Mitt Romney’s tax returns.
And yeah, what about those tax returns? What’s Romney trying to hide anyway? It’s the public’s right to know every detail of his personal finances for the last ten years. And every other detail for that matter. Don’t Ya just hate these politicians who want to cover up their past?
Well at least the American people can rely on the Fourth Estate to shine the light of truth on our presidential candidates. With OMSNBC, CNN and the Huffy Post piling on the pressure, it’s just a matter of time before the Romney campaign releases those tax returns.
And then the media can finally start to focus their spotlight on the hidden years of Romney’s opponent, Barry Soetoro. At least that’s who he might have been known as in 1983.

Christians surrendered their First Amendment rights to avoid taxes they weren’t required to pay
With the HHS Mandate now the law of the land, the distant left is ready to embark on the next phase of the campaign to silence Christian voices of opposition to the socialist takeover of America – bringing the IRS down on the Catholic Church for alleged “violations” of the requirements for 501(c) 3 tax-exempt nonprofit organizations.
Traditionally, the Catholic Church has scrupulously avoided even a hint of mixing politics with the pulpit. But the Pill Mandate has clearly been the final straw, with scores of Bishops and Priests finally letting lose on this unprecedented assault on religious freedom.
Which is just what the President and his minions have been waiting for. The cry of “Tax The Churches” is starting to resound on the left.
There is absolutely no justification for it, of course. But the real point is that America’s Churches should never have agreed to limit their First Amendment rights by foolishly jumping onto the 501(c) 3 bandwagon in the first place. It simply wasn’t necessary.

Maybe Alan, but “before we can triumph, we must survive”
We first saw, and came to greatly admire Alan Keyes in the 1996 and 2000 republican primary debates. A true conservative, and an articulate and powerful debater, Alan mopped the floor with the other candidates.
We supported Alan in the primaries and he would have undoubtedly been a great president. But unlike the utterly unqualified Barack Obama, conservatives need to establish a credible political record in order to be considered a serious candidate for the presidency. We have regretted, and never understood why Alan Keyes refused to work his way up the political ladder.
Alan later renounced the republican party, as have many conservatives. And on principle, we could not agree more.
But in a recent article, in which he refers to the 2012 election as a “Choice Between the Devil and Beelzebub”, Alan Keyes is calling on conservatives to turn their backs on Mitt Romney. And here we could not agree less.

President’s Pill Mandate would redefine what constitutes a religion in the eyes of government
Who is this mystery woman? For a hint, here is a recent quote.
“Our faith journey isn’t just about showing up on Sunday… Jesus didn’t limit his ministry to the four walls of the church. He was out there fighting injustice and speaking truth to power every single day. He was out there spreading a message of grace and redemption to the least, the last, and the lost. And our charge is to find Him everywhere, every day by how we live our lives….”
“Democracy is also an everyday activity. And being an engaged citizen should once again be a daily part of our lives.”
And the speaker is 1) Dr Alveda King 2) Michelle Obama 3) Sarah Palin 4) Kathleen Franklin Graham 5) Somebody Else

Christianity is not a passive religion
RadiantCross.org is a call for Christian America to unite in defense of freedom of religion, the God given inalienable right to life, and the sanctity of marriage and the family.
The first half of 2012 has emphasized that such an effort is truly needed. We have already seen a major assault on freedom of religion, further efforts to establish abortion as a basic healthcare right, and two more states legalize homosexual marriage.
With membership building, we are in the process of expanding RadiantCross.org into a Ning based Christian activist community with News, Featured Blogs, a Members’ Blog and a Discussion Forum.
Our goal is to counter the likes of MoveOn.org, Media Matters, and Daily KOS with a website witnessing for Christ and evangelizing Faith, Life & Family 24/7/365.

We can thank George Bush – and look to ourselves
Should conservatives be surprised at the Obamacare decision, especially at Chief Justice John Roberts casting the deciding vote? Yes. Stunned? No.
Several conservative talk show hosts and commentators had expressed the opinion that the weak link would prove to be Roberts rather than traditional swing vote Justice Anthony Kennedy. The concern was that Chief Justice Roberts would feel compelled to prove his independence. That his Court, the Roberts Court, was above all political considerations.
Convoluted thinking to say the least, if that was the case, because Roberts has only shown himself to be a weak-kneed jurist who was cowed into reversing a decision by the President and the media.
Thursday’s decision was a constitutional and judicial fiasco. But Roberts was right about one thing in his Obamacare decision. We the people have the government we asked for, and it was not the Supreme Court’s task to save us from our folly.« Previous Entries
