George Washington on the separation of Church & State
"It is impossible to rightly govern the world without God and the Bible."

HomosexualityIs A Mental Disorder
The only thing homosexuals hate more than straight people is straight peoplewho used to be homosexual because that proves homosexuality is not ingrainedinto the human psyche before birth but is a learned, or perverted, behaviour.Dr. Jeffery Satinover, author of Homosexuality and the Politics of Truth states, "Anyonewho actually reads the studies examining the association between homosexualityand psychological disturbance will find a very strong association." Sothen, why do judges rule in favor of these sex perverts? "The mentalhealth organizations....influence judges' understanding before they becomejudges so that when a man or woman becomes a judge he is, for all purposes,an ignoramus with respect to homosexuality, full to the brim with sentimentalplatitudes."

Montana Independence!
Montana rejected the homosexual lobby's pressure to include homosexualsin their "Hate Crime" law.

A Love Affair
Is it any wonder that the News Mafia is so enraptured with Islam? They both have so much in common:

  • They both hate America
  • They both love murder and bloodshed
  • They both hate the freedom of speech
  • They both love class warfare
  • They both hate the Jews
  • They both love anything that hurts America
  • They both hate the Bible
  • They both think sex is "Heaven"
  • They both hate God
  • They both love to cause trouble

The original name for Lake Eire was "Lake of the Erighs." The Erighswere a strong and noble Indian tribe that inhabited its banks in northwestPennsylvania. But this small tribe was attacked and mercilessly eradicated.Every man, woman and child was hunted down and murdered until all that survivestoday is the name "Erie" to even hint that they ever existed.

Whocommitted this horrible act of genocide? Not the French. Not the Dutch. Notthe English. In fact, it was committed by their fellow Indian "brothers," theIroquois. Hey! Maybe Indians are as "evil" as white men!

The White-faced god
Over the last 50 years American society has become addicted to any form of "TheScreen." They turn to TV, movies and computers for all of their inputand thought processes. Now this well-served "god" is turning upin our restaurants, cars and even our churches. Amazingly, years ago churchesused to preach against the theater. Now, some new church buildings are actuallyusing theater blueprints to design new "worship centers."

As longas we let someone else do our thinking for us we are in trouble!

Meetingthe 7000

Pastor Jimmy Chandler
Bro. Chandler is pastor of Arbanna Baptist Church near Mountainview, Arkansas.I say "near" because the nearest town is twelve miles away andit only has about 2,500 people in it. Perched on a mountain top in what couldeasily be mistaken as the middle-of-nowhere, Bro. Chandler has done a tremendousjob of building a church. He has built eleven buildings on two pieces of property,the church proper and the church campground. He now runs between 300 and 400people in his church. I guess no one told him he couldn't do it!

Guess Who's in Financial Trouble!
Mercedes-Benz has fallen on hard times. Its Maybach ultra-luxury car is languishing without buyers and costing the company millions to keep afloat. Its SLR V12 super sports car isn't selling either. Its Smart mini car division has lost $3 billion since its launch in 1998. It has invested $2.1 billion in that monetary blackhole, Mitsubishi, with no real financial return. Thecompany lost $1.1 billion in the first quarter of 2005.

There are also qualityproblems. In March 1.3 million Mercedes cars were recalled for electricaland brake problems.

The only bright spot has been Chrysler which posted a $1.9billion profit in 2004.

2004 Aztec Ugly Car Award
The 2004 award has been awarded to the Honda Element. It hasn't gottenuglier since losing to the Ferrari Enzo last year. But I know that Honda designersworked hard to make their vehicle look repulsive, slapping gray plastic claddingon everything but the windshield. I just don't like to see such effortsgo unrewarded. Plus, I hate the thought of Ferrari winning anything two yearsin a row.

Keep your hopes up. Word is Ferrari is working on an even uglier edition of the Enzo!

An Interesting Revelation
When men find formerly unknown tribes in jungle regions they always find them, "man & wife." Marriagebetween a man and woman is so natural that it is found in primitive cultureswhich have had no contact with the outside world.

But researchers neverfind same sex marriages in such environments because such relationships, likethe practice, are unnatural.

Fight On!
Deane and LorraineLengkeek of Holland, MI., were hiking to Iceberg Lake in Glacier National Parkon August 30, 1991, when a sow bear with two cubs attacked them. The beastcharged into Deane and bit him in the shoulder, arm and chest. Before the attackhappened, Lorraine, a 62 year old grandmother with fifteen grandchildren, hadbeen musing over the beauty around her and singing the hymn, "HowGreat Thou Art." Now she was watching a mad grizzly bear savaging theman she had spent most of her life with. This would never do! The only weaponLorraine had was the binoculars she was carrying around her neck. The 5' 4",130 lb. grandmother and wife took the binoculars by the strap and in a defensiverage swung them, smashing them down on the bear's head. The stunned brutelooked up at the fire in the little lady's eyes and bolted.

Deane washelicoptered to the hospital and survived. Fight on!

Yeah! Sure! That's A Lot Clearer!
Here's a quote from the latest "improvement" on the KingJames Bible, the New Reformed Catholic Translation.

"For Christ did not send me to make people Christians and join them tothe new covenant by an external religious act, but to preach fluffy but correctlyparsed discreet propositions bout soteriology, with great use of very complexand flowery (but generally irrelevant and empty) speech, so that the crossof Christ would not be made void (though this would require specifics regardingdoctrine and theology)." (1 Cor. 1:17, NRCT)

Now go read that fromthe Bible!
