Something That Really Bothers Me

Until I read these articles, I had not thought about the use of drone strikes or what it actually meant.  It seemed like a good alternative.

Why I Refuse to Vote for Obama (by the way, Romney is for the same practice so you can’t use this against the President if you support Mitt)

This article, which gives some sad details, is why I am upset:  BBC US Drone War in Pakistan

(Note that it’s not an American news outlet)

Along with everything else, the lesser evil is still evil.

So, I get to choose to vote for a party that supports killing unborn Americans.

Or, I get to vote for a party that supports killing born foreigners.

Can’t wait til Election Day.  Can you?


Weekend Reading

I usually would have done this on Friday, but Fridays are dead and I was busy.  I know that there isn’t much action on the weekends but I really need to clean-up my bookmarks.  So, here they are:

Deadspin is a site that has non-sports news about sports figures.  Expect a lot about A-Rod.

Socks dies and a nation snores, er, I mean mourns.  Who will take a stand to respect the lives of sick kitties? How can we sleep with Jack Kevorkians at every Vet’s office?!  OH! THE FELINITY!!

I enjoyed this psychological analysis of the President.  Not because I believe he is a Narcissist, but because I think I recognized some people I know by these symptoms.

Persecution in China.  It’s a woman writing.  Kate, they need you!

If this is totally true, I am worried: “Your Congress has voted to spend almost $790 billion of your money on a stimulus package that not a single member of either chamber has read.”

This is my favorite dessert at the Indian Food Buffet I frequent as often as I can afford.  Galub Jamun

Apparently, everyone else already knew about  I have been watching old Three Stooges eps for FREE.

This is a little heavy on the toes but a good point: The Sin of Prayerlessness

If someone wants to buy me this toy, I would let you.  I know, it’s sad.  But he is my favorite soccer player ever.

This is sad and awful.  Christians need to stand up and speak out against this. If you think he got what he deserved, you are not a Christian.  And, yes, I do believe homosexuality is a sin.

10 Worst Habits of Preachers (watch out Trey, this guy is messing with your territory)

John Mark Hicks’ blog never lets us down: I am a Patternist

Why Most Churches Suck (pardon his french)

I haven’t seen Fireproof yet but it is still making waves (good ones)

The dangers of “smooth preaching” (don’t think I have ever been accused of being smooth)

Bobby V has been on a roll of late, blogging about baptism and sectarianism.  Make sure you check him out.

Why the Election Shouldn’t Matter to Christians

This is the basic outline for my sermon in Sunday, November 2nd.  You can listen to the Sermon Audio HERE.

No matter who wins..

  • God is still in control
  • Truth is still Truth. Right and Wrong are not dependent upon the election
  • Our Call and Responsibilities as disciples of Jesus are the same
  • People will only be saved by the Gospel of Jesus Christ
  • Christians are obligated to pray for, submit to, and respect the president

If Obama is elected……!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

(I haven’t decided if I am going to vote yet, but I probably wouldn’t for Obama because I am pretty much a single-issue voter.  And I really don’t believe Mccain or the Republican Party are going to abolish abortion, so I don’t know that I would vote for him.  But, I have been getting laughs from the paranoid, slippery-slop scare tactics that “Christian organizations” have been using to encourage Christians not to vote for him and wanted to play along.  If you don’t know what I am talking about, read this ridiculous Letter, which exposes Christians as the weak, whiny, power-hungry people we are:  “oh dear, I can’t worship in a comfy church building anymore”  “oh dear, the school systems are not going to raise my kids to be Christians” “oh dear, the government says it’s okay to sin”;  Buck up, people!  If it happens, the church will overcome.  We (Christians) just won’t be in “control” anymore.  So, you see how this ties into my other posts.) I had a dream of the future.  I have seen the future and it is bleak.  This is what is in store for God’s Chosen Nation, if Barak Satan Obama wins the election this year:

  • Fifty percent of all children will be forced to be gay.
  • Christians will be rounded up into sports arenas to be trampled by elephants while the ACLU wagers on how long we will last.
  • Obama will staff his entire cabinet with Muslims, Communists, and Pedophiles.
  • There will only be a state-run church and all will have to attend and sing God Bless America while bowing before statues of Obama.
  • Hispanic people named Jesus will have to have their names legally changed or be punished.
  • It will be against the law to be kind, gentle, peaceful, or loving;  with sentences ranging from 10-25 years depending on the extent of one’s kindness.
  • Obama will reveal his true identity as Mohammed incarnate and wage war against James Dobson, Jerry Falwell, and Pat Robertson.
  • The Democratic Party will change its name to the Democratic Socialist.
  • Russia will invade the USA and Obama will destroy them with the breath of his mouth.
  • All church buildings will be turned into community homosexual brothels
  • Washington, DC will be renamed, “Western Mecca”
  • Obama will marry that crazy guy in Minnesota who claims to have done sex and drugs with him on the White House Lawn.
  • Abortions will be mandatory for all white people until they are in the minority.
  • By the end of his third term, American will be known as a “Muslim Nation” and “Allah Bless America” will be played at all sporting events.
  • Arnold Schwarzenegger will attempt a commando-like coup during the fourth term and will finally wrestle the government back for the Republicans.

Oh, well, I am tired and just wanted to be silly for a while. Can you add any other preposterous consequences of electing Obama, McCain??
