How far would you go to get your friends to come to church?

I found this shocking video on Youtube, censored out the cursing, and reposted it. She did this awful task to get two boys to come to church for four Sundays. It makes me ask myself, “How far am I willing to go to get my friends to come to church?”

Note: There are a lot of copies of this video floating around. While I censored mine, if you watch it from other sources, be forewarned: There is a lot of cursing. – The B.H.

Moscow’s Domodedovo Airport Bombed, at Least 35 Dead

At least 35 people have been killed and more than 130 wounded by a bomb blast at Moscow’s Domodedovo airport. Domodedovo is the city’s largest and busiest air facility.

Unnamed sources say that a Chechen Islamic terrorist group, the Caucasus Emirate, is believed to be behind the attack. The same group employed women as female suicide bombers in the bombing of the Moscow Metro subway last March. 40 people were killed.

What, did the airport put up a picture of Mohammed or something?

The “religion of peace” is spreading sunshine and rainbows as usual. Makes me want to hug an Imam and sing “Kumbaya.”

Meanwhile, here in the United States, Evangelical Christians are celebrating “Sanctity of Life Week.”  That’s an interesting contrast.  (Remember Rosie O’Donnell’s comment?  “Radical Christianity is just as threatening as radical Islam in a country like America where we have separation of church and state.”)

Islam doesn’t have the market cornered on bloodthirsty, murderous terrorism; the abortion industry has racked up some 53,000,000 killings since Roe V. Wade.

Watch and pray, Believers…

38 Years of Roe V. Wade

This is my granddaughter. She's due in April. SHE IS A PERSON. I can't wait to meet her!

Today’s statement from President Barack Obama:

Today marks the 38th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court decision that protects women’s health and reproductive freedom, and affirms a fundamental principle: that government should not intrude on private family matters.

I am committed to protecting this constitutional right. I also remain committed to policies, initiatives, and programs that help prevent unintended pregnancies, support pregnant women and mothers, encourage healthy relationships, and promote adoption.

And on this anniversary, I hope that we will recommit ourselves more broadly to ensuring that our daughters have the same rights, the same freedoms, and the same opportunities as our sons to fulfill their dreams.

The American Holocaust continues, not only unabated, but praised and protected by this president.  While he panders to his base, millions upon millions of children are sacrificed to the Molech of the abortion industry.

Pray for the unborn, and also pray for this sadly deluded (and deluding) president. Pray that he will come to see the truth of Proverbs 6:16:19 – “These six things doth the LORD hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him: A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief, a false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren.”

French Historian Rabbi Rashi explained the central ritual involved in Molech worship: “Molech…was made of brass; and they heated him from his lower parts; and his hands being stretched out, and made hot, they put the child between his hands, and it was burnt; when it vehemently cried out; but the priests beat a drum, that the father might not hear the voice of his son, and his heart might not be moved.”

I once published a newspaper column in which I stated that President Obama literally loves abortion.  I received this angry response from “Eddie69,” a reader:

“Oh yeah lovin’ that abortion! Do you truly, in the depths of your heart, believe that anyone loves abortion? What shameful rhetoric. You neither convince nor educate with such pompous oratory. Let us not come together, let us drive deeper the wedge of discord.”

Here is the response I posted:

Eddie69,

(1) ‘Oh yeah lovin’ that abortion! Do you truly, in the depths of your heart, believe that anyone loves abortion?’

Yes, as a matter of fact, I most certainly do believe, in the depths of my heart, that many people, especially your president, love abortion. How else could someone defend the indefensible with such devotion? No one could endorse abortion with his degree of passion without also harboring a profound affection for abortion.

Most people, under the right conditions, could defend something that they do not necessarily love, or even something that they might personally find distasteful; I accept that. However, the obvious delight Obama takes in serving as the pro-abortion movement’s spokesmodel, cheerleader, and handmaiden betrays something more than mere acquiescence to their objectives: He loves it.

Take, for example, the Illinois Born Alive Infant Protection Act (BAIPA). Whistleblower Jill Stanek revealed that personnel at Christ Hospital in Oak Lawn, IL were taking little babies who had survived abortions into the hospital’s soiled linen room and abandoning them there to die horribly – uncomforted, untreated, and alone. Illinois lawmakers began crafting BAIPA to outlaw this cruel practice.

BAIPA was brought before then-Illinois State Senator Obama’s Senate Judiciary Committee as Senate Bill 1095.
He voted against it in committee on March 28, 2001.
He spoke against it on the Illinois Senate floor two days later.
A revised version of BAIPA, Senate Bill 1662, was brought before Obama’s Senate Judiciary Committee on March 6, 2002. Obama voted against it again.
It came up for a floor vote on April 4, 2002. Obama voted against it again.
By 2003, Obama was chairman of the Health and Human Services Committee. BAIPA came up in his committee as Senate Bill 1082 on March 12. First Obama voted to amend it and adopt the ‘neutrality clause’ language from the federal version of the bill. After his changes were accepted, Obama voted against BAIPA!

(2) ‘What shameful rhetoric.’

President Obama is utterly beholden to Planned Parenthood, the number one abortion provider in the United States.  Watch the YouTube video here and listen to HIS rhetoric.  Listen to him affirming his intent to carry water for that beastly organization. Listen to him gleefully, shamelessly promising to sign the unthinkably barbaric Freedom of Choice Act into law. Hm. Yes. ‘What shameful rhetoric’ indeed:

One can’t miss his grandiloquence as he declares, ‘I will not yield, and Planned Parenthood will not yield.’ This is not merely tacit assent to Planned Parenthood and their agenda. This is President Obama’s declaration of partnership with them; it’s his vow of fealty to Planned Parenthood and their goals.. Any intellectually honest person will concede that.

If signed into law in its current form, the Freedom of Choice Act (FOCA) would nullify Carhart v. Gonzales. This, in turn, would negate the Partial-Birth Abortion Act which was enacted in 2003 and upheld by the United States Supreme Court in 2007. Most Americans recognize this procedure as the monstrous atrocity it is. Your President is not among them, obviously. In fact, as that speech to his Planned Parenthood cronies reveals, he wanted his first official act of office to be the signing of the legislation that would revive partial-birth abortion. Partial-birth abortion (or, as I’m sure your President would prefer, intact dilation and extraction) is an incomprehensibly heinous, infanticidal act. When Obama so proudly promises his signature on FOCA, he is also validating partial-birth abortion.

If signed into law in its current form, FOCA would nullify ‘conscience laws,’ those policies and provisions which allow hospitals, nurses and doctors who object to abortion to refuse to participate in, refer for, provide, or fund abortions. My wife’s OB/GYN, Dr. Karla Polaschek, is nationally regarded as one of the finest, most innovative physicians in her field. Unlike President Obama, she is not an abortion lovin’ individual; she has enough decency and humanity to comprehend the fundamental sanctity of human life. She has assured me that when and if conscience laws are nullified (as they would be by your President’s giddy signature on FOCA) , she and tens of thousands of her like-minded colleagues would have no choice but to abandon Obstetrics and Gynecology immediately. An untold number of Catholic hospitals would close as well.

If signed into law in its current form, FOCA would nullify the laws in over forty states that ensure that parents are informed if their minor daughter has scheduled an abortion. The exclusion of parents from a decision of this magnitude in the life of their child is unthinkable. Yet that’s what your President is plum-tickled to sign into law.

(3) ‘You neither convince nor educate with such pompous oratory.’

When I write a column, convincing and educating are never my objectives. For me, it’s strictly about fulfilling my destiny as an insufferable, bloviating hammerhead.

And incidentally, ‘oratory’ refers to speech, not writing.

Keith Olbermann Fired?!

I'm unemployed. I blame Bush.

Yes, it’s true.  Now the 17 people who watch “Countdown with Keith Olbermann” will have to find another source for sputtering, unsubstantiated vitriol.

I’ve never been what you would call a “Keith Olbermann fan.” Does it show?

But cheer up, Olbermaniacs!  You’ve still got Ol’ Thrill Leg for a full hour of guests not being permitted to finish their sentences.

Chris Matthews:  “Knock knock!”

Every “Hardball” guest ever:  “Who’s there?”

Chris Matthews:  “Chris Matthews.”

Every “Hardball” guest ever:  “Chri-“

Chris Matthews:  “OH, COME ON!  DON’T SIT THERE AND DENY THAT MICHELE BACHMANN IS A ZOMBIE NUT JOB!”

Of course, the question is, who will get Keith’s choice time slot?

I’m a little disappointed.  I was pulling for that ever-so-reasonable gent who comes on right after Olbermann.

This is what we talk about when we talk about Chris Matthews.

In the same program, Matthews questions Congresswoman Bachmann’s civility, and later refers to her as “almost a nutjob.” He has also, at other times, called her “zombie-like” and mocked her appointment to the Intelligence Committee.  “Civility,” indeed.
