On Being Judgmental

I think it's been incredibly hard for many of us to fight being judgmental in today's polarized world. This quote might be helpful, as it was to me:

“It is a fearful thing to hate whom God hath loved. To look upon another his weaknesses, his sins, his faults, his defects is to look upon one who is suffering. He is suffering from negative passions, from the same sinful human corruption from which you yourself suffer. This is very important: do not look upon him with judgmental eyes of comparison, noting the sins you assume you’d never commit. Rather, see him as a fellow sufferer, a fellow human being who is in need of the very healing of which you are in need. Help him, love him, pray for him do unto him as you would have him do unto you.”
–Attributed to St. Tikhon of Zadonsk (1724 – 1783)

Misleading Posts About Beck in Attempt to Justify Their "Hate Speech" Argument

RE: Our post about churches promoting the Obama agenda and accusing others of hate speech, I see that many are using the following type of headlines such as this one, "Glenn Beck compares Fox News to Holocaust victims". These false posts are all over the internet.
This is a ridiculous and twisted take on what he actually said. The word "holocaust" was never used and the meaning of what he said was very different. His point was that if we allow others to be shut down and freedom of speech to be taken, then we may be the next victims. Anyone who has seen it knows this was the point, and are obviously trying to smear him. Watch the video and judge for yourself:

Is Your Church Pushing the Obama Agenda?

Yesterday, Jeffrey Lord posted an excellent article on the Spectator site called "FCC-Church Conspiracy to Silence Talk Radio and Fox". This is a must read. Were you aware that your church may be involved in the attempt to shut down free speech?

From his article:
• The media package sent to UCC church members by Guess also solicits support to remove Lou Dobbs from television and intimidate sponsors of Glenn Beck's TV show into pulling their advertising. The link for this is here:
• The following religious denominations have agreed to sign on to the request to the FCC. They are: the United Church of Christ, U.S. Catholic Conference of Bishops, the Islamic Society of North America, United Methodist Communications, Presbyterian Church USA, Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) and several other "faith groups".
• These religious groups are to convey the idea that talk radio and Fox News are guilty of "hate speech" as illustrated by links naming or presenting Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, Bill O'Reilly, Lou Dobbs, Michael Savage in this fashion."

The full article HERE.

This is surprising to many, but it's not new. They have been acting on behalf of their national membership for years. Check out the activities of the National Council of Churches from Discover the Networks:

Here is even more on the church connection to ACORN and other groups, which has gone on for years:

As if this latest attempt isn't enough, they apparently also have an agenda to do with net neutrality. Check out their promotion here:

In their little animation, they claim that you have a right to broadband....a right. Although I can see some advantages to net neutrality, I am extremely suspicious of the motives behind it. It is being pushed as hard as their other causes, and there is obviously much more to it.

Are you a member of one of these participating churches? If so, you might want to ask your pastor exactly why you are involved in endorsing a far left political agenda.

The Agenda According to Mark Rudd

Mark Rudd of radical Weather Underground infamy, spells it out on his own front page:

"Obama plays basketball. I'm not much of an athlete, barely know the game, but one thing I do know is that you have to be able to look like you're doing one thing but do another. That's why all these conservative appointments are important: the strategy is feint to the right, move left. Any other strategy invites sure defeat. It would be stupid to do otherwise in this environment.
Look to the second level appointments. There's a whole govt. in waiting that Podesta has at the Center for American Progress. They're mostly progressives, I'm told (except in military and foreign policy). Cheney was extremely effective at controlling policy by putting his people in at second-level positions."

Patriot Peace Prize

This morning's announcement of Obama winning the Nobel Peace Prize is laughable. He has obviously done nothing to deserve it, other than being a progressive. You may note the progressive pattern, with Teddy Roosevelt and Woodrow Wilson being the only other US presidents to have received it.

I think those who doubt the action of a NWO should have no doubt after this, as this is his public crowning as their leader.

I propose we award a Patriot Peace Prize. Wouldn't it be refreshing to have such an award, based on actual merits? Who do you nominate? Name your picks and I'll start a voting page for our nominees.
