Pat Caddell EVISCERATES the Modern Press as Democrat operatives

Still a very relevant video – from just before the 2012 Election. Be sure to share it.

Sensible Views Weblog

Drop what you’re doing. You MUST watch this video RIGHT NOW, before you watch any news today, and you must remember it as you are watching any news in the future…

I haven’t posted in so long because I was beginning to feel like it was a useless effort. Oh, I’ve reblogged a few things, but for the most part I haven’t bothered to write anything because in my mind it was a waste of time.

This video will NOT be a waste of your time. I promise. It was posted on You Tube back in September, 2012 just before the election. I so wish more people had taken heed of his alarm, because it’s only gotten worse since then. Everything he says is even more relevant now in 2015, and it will continue to be relevant until the American people put their (collective) foot down and say NO MORE.

Homosexuality is Not a Civil Right by Peter Sprigg

Early in 2004, San Francisco mayor Gavin Newsom began giving out marriage licenses—illegally—to same-sex couples. One of the homosexuals who traveled to San Francisco in search of a marriage license explained his rationale succinctly: “I am tired of sitting at the back of the bus.”1

The allusion, of course, was to the famous story of Rosa Parks. Parks is the African-American woman who, one day in 1955, boarded a racially segregated city bus in Montgomery, Alabama, sat down near the front, and refused the driver’s order to “move to the back of the bus.” Parks’ act of civil disobedience violated one of the “Jim Crow” laws that enforced racial segregation in various public services and accommodations in some states.

Parks’ arrest for her courageous defiance sparked the Montgomery bus boycott, led by a young minister named Martin Luther King, Jr., which is generally viewed as the beginning of the great civil rights movement of the 1950s and 1960s. It culminated legislatively in the passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, banning racial discrimination in employment, housing, and public accommodations.

The stories of Rosa Parks and Martin Luther King, Jr. have become an inspiring part of American history. It’s not surprising that homosexual activists have tried to hitch their caboose to the “civil rights” train. They do this in the context of efforts to change the definition of marriage in order to allow same sex “marriages” (by comparing same-sex “marriage” to interracial marriage) and efforts to pass “hate crime” laws (which stigmatize opposition to homosexual behavior as a form of “hate” comparable to racism). The arguments in this essay are relevant to those debates, but focus particularly on laws that would ban employment “discrimination” on the basis of “sexual orientation” (such as the federal Employment Non-Discrimination Act, which is regularly introduced each Congress).

This essay is not a legal treatise, but an exploration of the philosophical justification for including various characteristics as categories of protection under historic civil rights laws—and why “sexual orientation” simply does not compare with them.

Do Not Forsake Your Mother’s Teaching

By John Piper
Original sermon preached on May 8, 1994

Proverbs 1:7-9

The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge; fools despise wisdom and instruction. Hear, my son, your father’s instruction, and do not forsake your mother’s teaching; indeed, they are a graceful wreath to your head, and ornaments about your neck.

The book of Proverbs begins, “The proverbs of Solomon, son of David, king of Israel.” He was a great king and the son of a great king. That means he was famous and powerful and supreme in all the realm. People bowed in his presence. They did what he said. He had immense authority and honor.

Even Great Kings Should Bow to Their Mothers

How did he treat his mother in this exalted role? You recall his mother was Bathsheba. She had married his father David under very ugly circumstances—very displeasing to God. But she was his mother, and this is what it says in 1 Kings 2:19,

Bathsheba went to King Solomon to speak to him for Adonijah. And the king arose to meet her, bowed before her, and sat on his throne; then he had a throne set for the king’s mother, and she sat on his right.

Then they had their conversation. He rose for her. He bowed to her. And he called for a throne to be put beside his for their conversation. She was his mother. Even kings should stoop when their mothers enter the room.

Solomon was not a perfect king. He was not a perfect man. None of the writers of the Bible was. But God…

Ancient Stories Retold Drawing Advanced Praise From Literary, Liturgical, Music and Film Worlds

Press Release:

Nashville, TN – April 6, 2010 – YHWH: The Flood, The Fish and The Giant, the first volume of the highly anticipated Ancient Stories Retold series by American playwright, Paula K. Parker and New York Times Best-Selling British author, G.P. Taylor, is receiving rave reviews and critical acclaim from leading figures in the literary, film and religious communities on both sides of the Atlantic. Masterfully combining elements of love, deceit, betrayal, and ultimately redemption YHWH: The Flood, The Fish and The Giant, which releases this May in the United Kingdom followed by its U.S. release later in 2010, contains 20 adventurous stories set in ancient times that are resonating with critics and fans alike.

Christopher Coppernoll, popular novelist of Screen Play, A Beautiful Fall and Providence declares, “Facinating and powerfully written, YHWH: The Flood, The Fish, & The Giant captures the imagination and tells the human saga in the midst of God’s story. A triumph.”

The Right Reverend David Wilbourne, Assistant Bishop of Llandaff Cathedral, The Church in Wales says, “Employing all his great skills as a story-teller, G. P. Taylor and Paula K. Parker imaginatively recast the major stories of Scripture for a modern-day audience. YHWH: The Flood, The Fish and The Giant will be enjoyed alike by youngsters and adults. It closely follows the original Biblical material, whilst bringing alive its ancient Near Eastern setting and customs, drawing out a clear and immensely faithful message. The pace is bracing, the read dramatic and exciting, which will both delight and engage readers young and old, enticing them to re-read and be enlarged by the stories in their original Scriptural setting. 2011 is the 400th anniversary of the Authorised King James version of Holy Scripture – reading YHWH: The Flood, The Fish and The Giant would be an excellent way of marking the English Bible’s 400th birthday!”

Melanie Wells, Dallas-based psychologist and author of My Soul to Keep, When the Day of Evil Comes and The Soul Hunter says, “A walk through the garden was never so pungent, so earthy as the stroll you will take with GP Taylor and Paula K. Parker in the pages of their masterwork, YHWH: The Flood, The Fish and The Giant. Smell the loamy earth, see the light glint from the scales of the serpent, taste the sweet-tart fruit of doom as the juice drips down your chin. Then wipe your mouth and turn the page and listen as the raindrops fall and the hammer pounds the nail into the cypress wood and the smell of pitch rises from the page to greet you. GP Taylor and Paula K. Parker have taken our Sunday School stories off the felt-board and created a world so vivid, so tactile and real, that you and your children will gasp, wide-eyed at the stench of meat on the lion’s breath and feel the sway of the ark itself. This book is a masterpiece. Step into its pages and you will forget you are learning and simply experience the wonder and the miracle of God’s word, reminded again and again that you, too, are part of the story.”

YHWH: The Flood, The Fish and The Giant is also generating buzz in the film and music communities. “What an absolute delight,” says Mitchell Galin, producer of such films as Stephen King’s The Langoliers, Pet Sematary and Journey to Everest. “Rarely have I seen stories so vividly portrayed; portrayed in a way that makes them come alive the way a good campfire story comes alive. And the source, the greatest stories ever told, but in a way that makes them accessible as they have not been before. You can walk through the gardens, feel Noah’s confusion, experience Abraham’s anguish, but in all we see unquestioned faith. We’ve heard or read the stories before, but what G.P.Taylor and Paula K. Parker have done is make you “feel” the stories in a new profound way.”

Author, actress and recording artist, Bonnie Keen adds, “Mega kudos to Paula K. Parker and G. P. Taylor for bringing this fresh collection of timeless adventures to a new generation. As one often hears, ‘You can’t make this stuff up! YHWH: The Flood, The Fish and The Giant fits the bill for any reader longing to embrace a heart-pounding story where the underdog wins the day and good triumphs against all odds over evil. In this marvelous new work we remember afresh why Biblical stories have infiltrated centuries of literature, culture and most importantly continue to capture the human heart.”

Paula K. Parker is a well respected U.S. based journalist, author and entertainment writer with more than 1000 published article to her credit. She is best known for her original stage play, Bloodlines, and her hugely successful stage adaptation of Jane Austen’s Pride & Prejudice.

New York Times best-selling writer, G.P.Taylor first topped the charts in the United Kingdom with his stunning supernatural thriller, Shadowmancer. The novel remained atop the UK charts for a record 15 weeks and has been translated into 43 languages. Universal Pictures acquired the film rights to Shadowmancer for a reported seven figure sum. Taylor’s popular works include Wormwood, Tersias, The Curse of Salamander Street, Mariah Mundi and The Dopple Ganger Chronicles.

Evangelical Leaders Sort True Gospel From Gimmickry

I had someone recently compliment me on my “absolutely gorgeous diamond ring”.

“Thanks!” I said. My thumbnail absentmindedly flicked the band on the underside of my finger, and I smiled.

I figured when I bought it for $25 that I probably wouldn’t go around advertising to anyone that it was just a cubic zirconia set in sterling silver unless they asked me. It looked real, and those who didn’t know much about jewelry would never know the difference.

But if I were to list the same ring for sale, and I listed it as white gold and a real diamond and priced it for several hundred dollars, I could be charged with felony fraud depending on how much money was involved.

Unfortunately, many ignorant or unscrupulous people do try to pass off fakes for the real thing. There are facsimiles for almost everything – jewelry, furniture, clothing and accessories, paintings, etc. – and it’s really sad when the one who buys it thinking it’s one thing only to find out it’s not what they thought at all. We love when someone finds they’ve got a real treasure that they dug out of the trash, but we’ve also seen that infamous Antiques Road Show and the crestfallen look on the antique collector’s face (after they paid a few hundred or thousand dollars for what they thought was a steal) when the appraiser sucks the air in through his teeth, start off saying, “There are so many good fakes out there…” and they suddenly realize how much money they wasted on a fake.

The same can be said of Christianity. There are so many different ‘versions’ of Christianity out there sometimes it’s hard to tell what’s orthodox and what’s not. Doctrine DOES matter.

Can you tell the real thing from a fake? Well, not everyone is a theologian, but there are some trustworthy teachers out there that can point out the good ones and the bad ones based on the standard of the Word of God.
