Some Interesting Links . . .

Links.jpgI don't think Barack Obama is necessarily responsible for the goofy (and probably racist) rants from his pastor, any more than members of Thomas Road Baptist Church were responsible for everything that Jerry Falwell said.  But I do think it interesting that a liberal mainline Protestant church leader can go on a rant in the pulpit,  take the Lord's name in vain while doing it, and virtually nobody mentions the shameless and public violation of the 3rd commandment.  Click here: Obama pastor: Not God bless, but God d--- America!

Speaking of feckless mainline Protestantism, ELCA can't decide what to do about homosexuality.  That, of course, comes as no surprise.  Apparently, neither side in this debate is willing to cause division in church.  I take this to mean that continuing peace and harmony in the institutional church is far more important than the principle they are debating--on either side.  Don't you just love it when church bureaucrats debate ethics!  Isn't interesting how they always make sure that these weighty decisions are framed in such a way as to keep those paychecks coming.  So, ELCA will keep "studying the matter" while the bureaucrats get paid, and the gay advocacy groups and conservatives continue to duke it out, yet remain in same the church.   Hmmm. . .  Click here: Evangelical Lutheran report on homosexuality attempts compromise (

Since mainline Protestantism is the tie that binds in these links, lets turn to ECUSA.  Those who support the openly-gay bishop Robinson, and current presiding bishop, Katharine Jefferts Schori, have taken action to remove another bishop who dares to speak of homosexuality as a sin.   Amazing.   Click here: Episcopal leaders oust Bible-believing bishop (

ELCA's got nothing on the ABC/USA for how to waffle on the issues of sexuality. Except we've got the trump card that justifies every manner of foolishness = "soul liberty". Gack.

Jefferson got a lot wrong. This he nailed.

I find it incredibly interesting that the IRS hasn't nabbed the outrageous Rev. Wright for his hate-filled ranting!
You can bet that if you proclaimed homosexuality as the sin that is from the pulpit and had a "schill" in the congregation, they'll be coming after you!
Interesting also, was E.D. Hill, on FOX News, using the full words for G.D. on the air. It shocked me but I guess that's what she was going for.
And why don't Martin Luther King's followers step forward and denounce Rev "Wrong." He is the antithesis of King's teaching of peaceful protesting.
God help us...

I believe Fox News reported Friday night that the IRS has the Rev. Wright's church under review to see if will keep or forego its exempt status. If not...the IRS will be looking for "change".

You stated that you do not believe that Obama is responsible for his pastors rantings. That is true, but he is responsible for finding a true church to worship in. He stuck around for 20 years! This is a sin of omission.
