Voting For Bugs

Barak Obama was elected President of the USA)
Make no mistake about it; Christianity is almost illegal in America. Oh, they let us stay in our churches and sing songs, but they are hell-bent on making sure that we don’t take our faith outside of the four walls of our stained-glass fortresses. Christians think they have impact but it is a façade. For the most part the modern evangellyfish church is a toothless tiger. John McCain throws Christians under the bus.
Our Founders were brilliant men. When they wrote the First Amendment to the Constitution they used the phrase "or prohibiting the free-exercise thereof." They knew what any back-woods football coach knows…use it or lose it. If you don’t exercise the muscle then it loses its power. Exercise is the key to strength. If we can’t freely exercise our faith, then we might as well not have it.
Free-exercise has been slowly removed by judges. They have told us that we can believe what we want as long as we don’t exercise that belief. Freeexercise means free-exercise. "Shall not be infringed" means shall not be infringed. You don’t need a law degree to understand the meaning of those words. Unless you wear a black robe, then the words mean what YOU say they mean. So much for "endowed by our Creator" rights. (Notice, a capital "C" in Creator.) Now they have become "court restricted rights."
Am I the only one ticked off?
True, Bible-believing Christians are the new endangered species. We have fewer rights than the polar bears….and for the most part the churches appeal to the politicians for the crumbs off of the table. "Please let us pray before graduation, your honor!"
I’m sick of it. I’m sick of sissy leaders, I’m sick of sissy Christians, and I’m doubly-sick of sissy Christianpoliticians who allow the courts to run rough-shod over the God-given rights of those who trusted in them enough to put them in office.
Back in the days when real-Christians were real-men there would have been a whole lot of tar and feathering going on for any official foolish enough to question whether a child could pray in school or a father could carry a gun to defend his family. Instead, today, our Christian-leadership sits around, folds their hands, and prays that the Lord will "move upon the hearts" of the terrorists in black robes and convince them to allow us to exercise the rights that the Creator alone granted to us.
Folks, forty-four-per-cent of the Supreme Court do not think God gave us the right to own guns! They think THEY grant that right. Who the heck are these tyrants?
How stinkin’ cowardly are we? Don’t you know the Second Amendment was put in place to protect the First Amendment? Today some churches are leading the battle to limit guns! Guns don’t kill people…cowardly leadership kills people!
Think I’m wrong? How many babies never saw the light of day because our Christian-leadership turned yellow when "the judges" said that a woman had a right to murder the most helpless creature under the sun? They found the "right" to "choose" in the "penumbras" of the Constitution. God said "Thou shall Not Murder." He didn’t hide the truth in the shadows.
Oh, the churches peeped for a while, until the Legislature passed the unconstitutional F.A.C.E. Act. That law claimed a women’s right to murder a baby superseded the right of others to freedom of assembly and expression…both guaranteed by that troublesome First Amendment.
And how did our leadership respond? "Vote Republican! They’re pro-life!" Yeah right. Next thing you know they’ll tell us that Democrats are for the little guy.
The scoundrels on the bench ruled that "sodomy" was a protected right. For six-thousand years it was a capital crime. Millions are dead from AIDS because of the abdominal behavior. What do the Christian-leaders do? Why they lament how "liberal" the court is. Liberal my butt, they are un-Godly. They spit again in the face of God. David cried "who is this uncircumcised Philistine, that he should defy the armies of the living God?" Today’s church raises money to treat the disease rather than outlawing the cause.
Who are those uncircumcised Philistines declaring righteous the thing the Lord called an abomination? We need some leaders with some stones.
I wonder what The Black Regiment would have done? Compare Jonas Clark to the government-fearing sissies we have today. (Can you say Faith-based initiatives?) I know this, when they decide to round the "Christians" up, I bet I’m higher on the government list than Joel Osteen and Rick Warren.
Face it Church, we are not free. We have to ask government permission to pray to the Creator who gave us the right.
Should I go on?
We have followed our "leaders" and look at what we have. Obama verse McCain. Tweedle Dee vs Tweedle Dumb. Leftist Communism vs Mainstream Communism. David ran towards evil. Today we are told to vote for the lesser evil. "At least he’s better than Obama. We can’t let Obama pick the new Supreme Court justices."
Really? Seven of the current Dwarfs were appointed by Republicans. Six of the seven on the California Supreme Court are Republicans. They gave us homo-marriage. Well I ain’t drinkin’ the Kool Aid. Follow the drift; Reagan, Poppa Bush, GW Bush, and now McCain; each more socialist than his predecessor. They shoot horses don’t they? The Republican Party is a dead horse and I ‘m not climbing back on that nag….no matter how "conservative" Hannity tells me they are.
"You’ll just throw away your vote." The Kool Aid drinkers tell me. "A third-party candidate can’t win." They’re probably right but I will not abandon my conscience. Voting for either one of those phonies gives me the heebie-geebies.
I had Alan Stang on my show Monday night. He said something to me that I couldn’t shake. You can listen for yourself, but allow me to repeat it as I recall it. Talking about the two parties and their candidates he said: "It is like lying under a huge bug. Down on the ground where the bug’s feet are it looks like McCain and Obama are two different feet. But the farther up the legs you allow yourself to look you begin to realize that they really are nothing more than two legs connected to the same body." Unfortunately, the bug is a blood-sucker.
So here it is. I’m constantly hearing that all of the evil we see descending around us is nothing more than what Jesus told us would happen in the end. To fight it, is to fight the will of God. As a result, instead of fighting evil they sit inside their churches and pray for financial blessings to store up before Jesus returns. It never made sense to me. They fight to get stuff that they cannot keep, yet refuse to fight for what they must not lose.
Well, I’ve had enough of it. I ain’t voting for any more bugs. I figure that way maybe we will get the evil they have been waiting so long for. It will speed along the return of Jesus.
Maybe they are right … worse is better. No sense fighting the Lord.
Boy, I hope they’re right. If Obama gets in, we might get some judges who spit on the Constitution and perhaps take away the church’s tax exemption.
But, that might be a good thing. Taking the churches money might get the sissy boys riled up. Abortion didn’t do it and sodomy didn’t do it. But money….well now the government is messin’ where it don’t belong.
Maybe worse is better. Persecution can be a good thing. "But the more they afflicted them, the more they multiplied and grew." Bring it on.
I ain’t votin’ for no bugs.
