Refugee Crisis


Right now in the current news cycle there is much discussion of whether or not to take in a whole lot of Syrian refugees that are supposedly fleeing ISIS. Most of the Democratic politicians in the news these days are for accepting them. In fact, Hillary Clinton suggested she would take in 65,000 versus the 10,000 that the Obama administration wants. Ted Cruz suggests we might want to allow the “Christian refugees” access to our land. Such lunacy needs to be addressed by our Congress and the American people in general if we are to preserve our way of life and protect our citizenry.

I’m all for helping our brothers and sisters in their time of need—if it is legitimate. We have no way of “vetting” all of these people as Hillary suggests we do. To be honest, I believe she knows that and maybe couldn’t care less about what happens to them. This could all be pandering to her base, as she is certainly known to do. After all, she is a classic politician.

Why not help them relocate to a safe haven in their part of the world? Why must we always be the ones to manage such things? Where is Saudi Arabia in all of this? How many of their fellow Muslims are they accepting? My understanding is none. Please correct me if I am wrong.

It is time that we wake up and take back our country. The way to do that is at the voting booth n this next election. If we don’t act soon, we may eventually even lose that most basic right.

My Lord wants us to be “our brother’s keeper,” for sure. But I don’t think he expects us to commit suicide in the process.

Ann Coulter, a conservative columnist and well-known speaker, asserts that Donald Trump won the election when the Paris attack happened. I’m not sure of that one—and I’m not sure it is best for America. However, it is preferable to extending Obama’s policies another 4 years by electing Hillary Clinton. We need to be rid of these establishment Democrats, as well as the GOP establishment. We need to take our country back. Please… make sure you vote in the next election.

Hate Speech

The amount of vitriol directed at President Trump seems to be unprecedented. At least, that is what those on the right seem to think. Of course, I remember plenty of criticism and hate speech hurled at President Obama during his time in office, as well. I don't think I really need to mention President George W. Bush, do I?

There has never been (in my lifetime) such a level of animosity between opposing viewpoints as I see in today's America. Democrats hurl murderous accusations against the Republicans for their healthcare proposals and those of a conservative view sling accusations of incompetence and hypocrisy back at them. Of course, either side is generally pretty good at documenting their accusations with freshly spun 'facts.'

No matter where you fit into the political spectrum, it is important to note that such contention is counter-productive. Whenever people react at the behest of their emotions, clear-headed and rational decisions are nowhere to be found. Moreo…

Dealing in Hope

My Uncle Carl died recently at the age of 102. Having lived a long life, he was well-liked and respected by many. I can't really say a lot about him, because I only started getting to know him these past few years. He was my father's older brother from a rather large family of 9 brothers and sisters and two adopted nephews. I can get a little sad when I think about my father's dwindling family. I have lived long enough to see all but one of the brothers and sisters pass. Of course, I must remember that for everything there is a season -- as the writer of Ecclesiastes so eloquently wrote.

I attended his funeral for the sake of those he has left behind. It was not about him; we celebrated his life while he was here whenever we saw him or he passed a milestone on his journey. It's about those left here. It's about the Gospel message. After all, for a Christian, isn't it really all about the Gospel? It's about being a dealer in hope. it's about eternity wit…

Happy July 4th!

Godliness makes a nation great,but sin is a disgrace to any people. -Proverbs 14:34 (NLT)

This brief post is designed to wish the reader the very happiest of July 4th holidays. Although we live in the most disturbing of times  -- which seem to have seen the decline of America into some immoral cesspool where everything goes and the sky is the limit for sinful behavior, I still feel the presence of God's people and hope the Church can rise to the occasion. The word 'repent' means to change one's mind or have some regret for a course that somebody has been on. America must repent from the course we've been on in order to survive and return to being a great nation. History is replete with accounts of once-great groups of people who have turned from God and faced dire consequences. Is it really God causing harm and suffering -- or is it the fact that we deny God's protection from the enemy when we choose to live outside of fellowship with Him? If we search our hear…
