John Adams on Hurricane Katrina
"Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. Itis wholly inadequate to the government of any other."


Looters are those low-life, evil individuals who see a disaster as an opportunity to profit. That being said, the Democratic Party and the News Mafia are looters. Both of these insidious groups of people saw the recent hurricanes as nothing more than an opportunity for them to take advantage of someone else's suffering to advance their political agenda. When do we get to put them in jail?

What Goes Around...

Wasn't it amazing that within a few weeks of the United States causing "forcedevacuations" of Jews in Gaza we were using the same term to describeU. S. Citizens in New Orleans?

Has our country been taking more vicious hits from nature (ie. GOD!) since we got down on our knees and kissed the feet of murderous Muslims after 9/11?

Are You Pro-abortion?

Did you know that one popular methods of a "safe & legal" abortionused in many abortuaries is to have a woman sit on a toilet and give birthto a living baby and then let it drown in the toilet? You'd better readJohn Adams' quote again.

"United We Give"

Manycompanies force their employees to give to the United Way. If you work forone of these companies you can't stop the deductionfrom your paycheck but you can have the money stolen from you diverted to your own church.

Quiters vs Fighters

Quiters: When they've reviewed all the evidence they say, "We'velost! It's over! There's no hope! There's no sense in trying."
Fighters: When we've reviewed all the evidence we say, "We can make a difference if we try."

Quiters never lose because quiters never fight. I'd rather lose thennever try. What about you?

Support for abortion at its lowest since 1966
51% believe abortion destroys a human life and is manslaughter
Only 19% oppose prayer in schools
69% believe religion is the best way to improve morals
74% believe families should be raised with religion
56% think journalists are biased against religion
64% dissatisfied with media's treatment of religion

Meeting the 7000

Duane Gish
Dr. Duane Gish, 84 years old, recently retired from the Intitute For CreationResearch. For decades the name "Gish" struck terror in the heartsof evolutionists as Dr. Gish traveled from secular college to secular universitycampuses and defeated pro-evolutionist scientists. He won over 300 suchdebates, losing none. He also authored a Chick-like tract called, "HaveYou Been Brainwashed?" which has much irrefutable evidence for Biblebelievers. Dr. Gish's brain won't be missed as badly as his courage.

There are many Christians with an intellect who lack the courage to stand againstthe lost world in defenseof the Bible.

PETA Murderers

I have always said that Liberals have a culture of death. They can only hate, destroy and kill. PETA, that group of hateful, demented radical Democrats who love to hate America, has portrayed themselves as loving and defending animals. Now, a scandal (that the News Mafia is covering up) has erupted in Norfolk, VA where they are headquartered concerning the vicious murders of helpless animals by PETA. PETA employees have been killing helpless dogs, cats and other pets committed to their trust instead of finding homes for them. Once murdered, their carcasses were unceremoniously thrown into local dumpsters. Several PETA employees have been caught and had charges filed against them. Between 1998 and 2003 PETA killed over 10,000 animals. In 2003alone they murdered 85 % of the animals they received to "help."

PETA has only found homes for 14% of the animals entrusted to their care. Comparethis with the Norfolk SPCA which found homes for 73 % of animals entrustedto it and the Virginia Beach SPCA which found homes for 66% of theirs. Whyhas PETA failed to find homes for animals? It could be that, being Liberalswho have a deep-seated fixation with both power and death, they enjoy killing.

This vicious, merciless, murderous organization took in almost $29,000,000 in 2003claiming to love and help animals. Check out PetaKillsAnimals.com formore details. (By the way, these are the same political liberals who also enjoykilling babies, old people and the critically ill.)

Fight on!

He worked hard and became a multi-millionaire. Then, at 56 years old he lost 40 million dollars. He was dead broke. He became suicidal and checked himself into a sanitarium. He wrote a "Good bye" letter to his family in preparation for his death. Then one day he got up and heard someone singing and went to see what was going on. He heard the words of "God Will Take Care of You" and fell on his knees and trusted Christ as his Saviour. He got out of the sanitarium and got back into business. He became a multi-millionaire again and died at the age of 102. We know him as J. C. Penney. Fight on!

Where's the Big Story

In 1990 New York City saw 2,245 murders. It was a record. It could only get worse. But it didn't. New Yorkers got tired of sorry democratic "leadership(wrecks)", like mayors Dinkins and Koch, and "threw da bums out." In came Rudy Giuliani and the murder rate began to decline. By 1996 the number of murders-per-year was down to 983. Giuliani was replaced by Michel Bloomburg and it has kept dropping. In 2004 murders were down to 570 and are predicted to drop below 500 in 2005.

There are two points to be noted about this decline. First, if this drop in murders had happened during a democratic administration our liberal News Mafia would be heralding it as proof of the need for more Democratic politics. Second, there is a lesson for Christians. In spite of our disdain for all things secular, things don't always have to continue down hill. Nice to see. Isn't it?
