A Free and Open Society Depends on Openness–Not Approval

It seems that some of the truth of about how the current administration operates is finally coming out into the open. You know, the most open and honest administration ever?! The New York Times admits that government officials are censoring news stories. The reports of the news happenings of the day really are “stories”, fiction at best. What a sad time in our history.

Olive Garden doesn’t allow an American Flag in their dining room. Why go there?

Here’s an article from “Conservative Bytes”. Guess this ends my love affair with the Olive Garden!
Here’s the story:

The Heart of America, Mr. President

This is something you, Mr President don’t and can’t understand. Of course neither can most of Congress:

A Legal American citizen

via Tarl Flint Sabre:

I’m a legal American citizen and I must show my ID when:

1. Pulled over by the police

2. Making purchases on my department store credit card.

3. When I show up for a doctor’s appointment.

4. When filling out a credit card or loan application.

5. When applying for or renewing a driver’s license or passport.

6. When applying for any kind of insurance.

7. When filling out college applications.

8. When donating blood.

9. When obtaining certain prescription drugs.

10. When making some debit purchases, especially if I’m out of state.

11. When collecting a boarding pass for airline or train travel.

I’m sure there are more instances,
but the point is that we citizens of the USA
are required to prove who we are nearly every day.

Why should people in this country ILLEGALLY, be exempt?
For that matter, perhaps the liberals can answer the question:
Why shouldn’t we guard our borders as closely as every other country in the world does?

GO ARIZONA !!!

Andy Birkey of the Minnesota Independent, Wrong Again

From http://youcanruninternational.com and Bradlee Dean, one of the most knowledgeable young Ministers  in America concerning the latest mob of criminals in the White House and how their actions fit into the scheme of things in The Bible.  You care about America at all, you need to read him consistently and listen to him on “The Patriot 1280:.

To my fellow Minnesotans,

I am a preacher who is deeply tired of seeing Americans roll over in the face of the social decline that is eradicating what hundreds of thousands of our veterans fought and died for – our freedom and our civility. It is my duty to honor these men and women; to live for the principles they died for.  They did not die so we could lead the world in crime, drug use, immorality or political corruption.

Scripture refers to Christians as the light of the world for a reason (Matthew 5:14).  I am, by God’s grace, continually pouring fuel (our Forefather’s intent) on our fire to make it burn as brightly as it can.  Ours is a vision of one nation under God.

Over the last six months our radio program (“The Sons of Liberty” on AM1280 The Patriot), produced as a part of our ministry, has become more successful, and many in the drive by media have started to dissect everything we say in the hopes of finding something to mislead you about, something to spin, something to pervert.

There is a journalist in the Twin Cities – Mr. Andy Birkey of the Minnesota Independent — who habitually falsifies our message – a message that has a long and consistent history.  For years we have spoken out about the sinfulness of the gay life style without ever suggesting that gays should be subject to any kind of repression, let alone violence, either by the state or any individual or group.  We have made the Christian position clear and stated it consistently over the years:  Homosexuals are sinners who, like all sinners, need to be loved and respected as human beings by the church with a view to their redemption and transition — just as heterosexuals who engage in fornication and adultery need to be admonished because of God’s love and the love he has given us for ourselves and others as sinners in need of a Redeemer (1 Corinthians 6:9).  The media in Minnesota, even nationally, is very familiar with our message and its consistency.  And so there is no excuse for lying about it — falsifying it by removing it from its total history and context.  Birkey in particular is guilty of twisting the meaning of our ministry and suggesting that it is associated with people and ideologies we have specifically repudiated.

For example, we have specifically rejected, as all Christians do, the Islamic doctrine, and actual practice, of executing homosexuals.  But some have claimed, in effect, that by merely mentioning the execution of homosexuals (as a criminal practice of Islam), on our radio broadcast, we have suggested it for consideration.  Obviously this is absurd.  The whole point was to contrast the Islamic position with the Christian position.  This may not have been as clear as we would have otherwise planned it to be.  Live radio is not scripted.  But everyone who knows us knows that this is our position because we have stated it consistently for years – long before we ever discussed the topic on the radio.  There are board members, and other supporters who can vouch for this.  We have never and will never call for the execution of homosexuals.  This is a complete misinterpretation by design.

On May 25, 2010 The Minnesota Independent published an article interpreting statements that I made on the radio, some of which clearly warned homosexuals that their life-style is sinful before God, as we warn all unrepentant sinners of every stripe that their sin problem has consequences for them and our society.  All sinners, without the sacrifice of Christ, and without the acceptance of that sacrifice, are doomed to eternal separation from God.  This is the last thing in the world we want happening to anyone, including homosexuals.  When you love someone, you are willing to wrestle with them, as we wrestle with our children because we love them.  We are not apathetic, not lazy about those whom we love.  Both Jake and I were so very close to our own eternal separation from God and came to understand so vividly what an empty and frightening prospect that was, that we are sincerely petrified for anyone headed in that direction.  We are sinners who have been liberated by Christ.  And we want all sinners to be liberated by Christ.  This process can only start when we admit in the first place that we are wrong.  We are in a sinful condition.

Let me make this perfectly clear — again.  We are opposed to the state, in any country, no matter what its religious tradition, in executing homosexuals.  We are against anyone, anywhere, at any time, who executes homosexuals for being homosexual.  We would hide them in our homes before we would allow that to happen.  But we would preach at them while they were there.

The gay “movement” is part of a sexual revolution that has stripped sexuality of all moral significance for an entire generation. We cannot accept the physical prosecution of homosexuals and we cannot accept the proposal that homosexuality is either private or moral.  Therefore, as Christians, we must wrestle with this human sin in order to preserve healthy, loving human sexuality for as many as possible.  We must love the homosexual and preach to him.  God must and will do the rest.  We are content with our role.

Our position is not libertarian because we cannot accept the idea that sex is a private language.  But we are not authoritarian because we do not believe that persecution is going help homosexuals.

But preaching is not persecution.  The notion, promoted by liberals, that preaching — freedom of speech — is a form of coercion, is madness, and proves that the modern liberal, so often identical with the modern journalist, does not care about keeping people free – including homosexuals.  When is the gay community going to wise up to the fact that it is nothing but a political opportunity to the liberals?  Most liberals do not care about homosexuals.  They care only for the political strategy they can build around the gay community; a strategy directed at reducing the influence of Christianity on government generally.  It is nothing but a will to power, not a will to health and well being for real people.

Using an excerpt from our radio show, taken out of context, to suggest that I have called for the execution of homosexuals is not accurate, nor is it correct.  I was not affirming Islamic law.  I was contrasting its excesses with the approach of Christianity which recognizes both the law and grace.   I have never said that homosexuals should be subject to any kind of violence.  I oppose exercising any kind of violence on them.

I preach what my faith tells me to preach – out of authentic love and commitment to the eternal souls of each and every sinner.  The media has twisted my remarks so irresponsibly, without calling me for correction or comment, as any competent journalist would have done.  Given this statement, it is clear that if any media source were to slander this ministry’s position, we will have to take action and will be likely to succeed with it.  It is time for the drive by media to start dealing honestly with dissent.
