Praise the Lord? Or praise Obama? Given the “Government is the only thing that we all belong to” theme of the DNC conference in Charlotte, NC this week and the “non-sanctioned” posters being hawked by vendors outside the DNC, I think it’s obvious who the Democrats would like us to bow to, and it isn’t the Lord Jesus Christ.
The month of August includes a photograph of Obama’s birth certificate with the words “Heaven sent.”
The president was born on Aug. 4th.
The entry also includes a photograph of Obama along with a passage of Scripture from the New Testament.
“For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life,” the entry read — referencing John 3:16.
This is a continuing tactic used by the Obama team and their supporters. It is offensive and disturbing to Constitutionalists and Christians alike. Americans do not worship our president, nor should we be encouraged to. It’s also telling that the DNC Platform removed references to God and Jerusalem while mentioning Obama by name 38 times and referring to him around 200.

They fought for their country, now they’re fighting against it.
A trio of Houston area veterans groups is suing Veterans Affairs and the director of the local National Cemetery claiming they’re trying to censor religious freedom during funerals and other ceremonies.
This is an outrage and should not be allowed to continue. The families of our fallen heroes should be allowed any form of prayer or religious services they wish without the government’s pre-approval of prayers submitted beforehand.
God bless our veterans and soldiers.
Don’t you think with Obama’s economy, those new job seekers are going to need all the help they can get? Aren’t there more important issues for a federal judge to be concerned with?
Peter Morrison is fired up about it in his latest report:
Just last week, a federal tyrant threatened the Texas Senate with grounding all flights in Texas if the anti-groping bill was passed. Yesterday another federal tyrant, an unelected appointed-for-life federal judge named Fred Biery, banned any and all prayer at the Medina Valley ISD graduation ceremonies.
He went as far as to order students and administration that they could not use words like “prayer,” or “bow their heads,” or “amen” upon penalty of jail time for contempt of court.
Folks, it doesn’t get any more outrageous than this. There’s only one real solution: civil disobedience by students at the Medina Valley ISD graduation, followed by interposition and nullification of the judge’s order by the governor. The sovereign state should interpose itself between the tyrant and its citizens to prevent abuses of the Constitution, and nullify this judge’s unconstitutional order. It’s the only solution that preserves the students’ rights in time for their graduation.
Rick Perry talks a good talk about protecting state’s rights. This is where the rubber meets the road. Governor Perry should order state troopers and other law enforcement personnel to protect the administration and students of Medina Valley ISD from arrest. Furthermore, this federal judge ought to be tried for unlawful assaults and threats. If I illegally threatened to kidnap and jail someone for praying in public, that would be a crime, and it’s the same crime even if it’s done by an unelected tyrant in a black robe.
Please send a fax to Governor Perry asking him to use every resource of the state to protect these students’ civil rights:
You know, last time I checked, the First Amendment provides us with freedom of religion, to worship in the manner of our choosing, not freedom from religion. No one in the graduation audience will be forced to pray. I promise. If you don’t want to, then don’t. Go get a beverage or a souvenir. Or you could just stand there and politely keep your yap shut for a moment. The Muslim terrorists in Gitmo have more religious freedom than those on the left would allow our students.
They don’t hate any God. The left hates the Christian God.

Billy Graham: The Resurrection
‘Twas the night before Christmas, and through the White House,
Not a creature was stirring, no Obama mouse.
A steel plate was mounted, blocking the hearth.
There be no Christmas spirit, here in their hearts.
The children were nestled, all smug in their beds.
While Utopian visions clouded their heads,
And Michelle in her boob belt, had set a trap.
If Saint Nick dare land here, he’d never come back,
When on the south lawn, there arose such a clatter,
The trap had been sprung! Now Christmas was over!
Yippie Kai Yea! She screamed with such laughter.
If the fat man’s not dead, then I’ll be his master!
I went to my window and threw open the sash,
In time to see delivered, the very first lash.
Swear to me Kringle, you’ll give no more candy,
And sing no more carols that we did not hand ye.
No toys shall be given without gubment approval,
They’ll be from China, Taiwan and communal.
We shan’t put up with your cheeriness either,
Now kneel down to grovel and beg for your life, sir.
I cannot do such things that you say,
You might as well bury me with reindeer and sleigh.
My life is to give for the children, you see,
Not bend to the will of your bureaucracy.
For even if, I could do as you say,
I would never, never, ever have it that way.
You seek to manage each little decision,
Why not leave such things to the singular person?
The living of life is the freedom of choice,
It’s what God intended, as we each have a voice.
To dictate to people what you’d have them do
Just kills innovation and charity too.
I’m begging ye ma’am, for the common folk,
Not for myself, you must turn loose this yolk.
If’n ye did, you’d be so much happier,
You might even enjoy to listen on laughter.
For you and Obama are God’s chosen ones
It is not chance you sit on those thrones.
Perhaps it’s to teach you a little humility,
And to govern much less, and lead with civility.
How dare ye Chris Kringle speak such to me!
As I’ve caught you myself and will not set you free!
My bidding you’ll do and there’ll be no debate,
Or buried you’ll be with those reindeer I hate.
What’ll it be mister fat man of flight?
Will you consent to slav’ry tonight?
Nay. Nay my dame. My answer is naught.
My life is all servitude, but never at cost.
Away to the dungeon! She commanded her minions,
He and his sleigh and reindeer and elflings!
I’ll see you in time, my fat man of frolic.
You think on these things as your deer get the colic.
She retired to the state house as they took Santa away,
With a wry backward glance at the fat man in chains.
The next morning she woke from a frightful dream.
Saint Nick had broke free and was not to be seen.
She ran to the dungeon, where they’d taken the bastard,
Only to find that the cell had been shattered!
With the light of the morning almost coming through,
Outside she ran to see what to do.
Off in the distance, the sleigh bells were ringing,
With a Ho Ho Ho Ho, she could just hear him singing.
One can’t imprison Christmas, she’d learned the hard way,
Much like our Messiah, who just will not stay.
The spirit of Christmas won’t remain in a cell,
It lives in our hearts, and our souls as well.
It’s the spirit of giving as the Christ gave His life.
That He died for our sins was His sacrifice.
The sleigh bells waned and Michelle retired,
As Santa flew home and the morning grew brighter,
Singing his carol and reminding us all
To listen with our hearts, to heed the call,
To live like the Savior, and love one another,
Every mother and father, and sister and brother.

Ten Buck Fridays congratulates Dale Glading on his victory in this week’s TBF poll.
Here’s a little background information on Mr. Glading:
Dale Glading, 50, is the Founder and Executive Director of The Saints Prison Ministry. Headquartered in Moorestown, New Jersey, “The Saints” is the largest athletic prison ministry in the country with branch offices in Charlotte, NC, and Colorado Springs, CO…
A lifetime resident of South Jersey, Dale earned a Bachelor of Science degree with summa cum laude honors in Community Recreation from Temple University in 1981. He served as Recreation Director at the Wiley Christian Retirement Community for 10 years before entering full-time ministry with The Saints in 1994. During his years at Wiley, Dale developed a deep empathy for seniors and an understanding of the issues that concern them most…
Dale Glading on the issues: (excerpts)
It is time that the career politicians in Washington stopped trying to buy votes with taxpayers’ money and learned to live within their means instead. That is why I support Rep. Mike Pence’s proposed Balanced Budget Amendment that limits government spending to 20% of the GDP. I have also endorsed Rep. Todd Tiahrt’s bill to place a moratorium on all federal earmarks…
When I think about education, I consider two very important factors. The first is that our children are our most precious treasures as well as the greatest â€œnatural resourceâ€ that America has. Second, competition breeds excellence in every area of life, including education.
Thatâ€™s why I strongly support the idea of school choice. Failing schools shouldnâ€™t be rewarded with a locked-in clientele, and children suffering in underperforming schools shouldnâ€™t be relegated to receiving a substandard education simply because of where they live…
…how about lowering the corporate tax rate which is currently the second highest in the world? That would make American companies more competitive internationally and provide business owners with the capital they need to expand and hire more workers.
And while we’re at it, how about lowering the income tax rates for ALL Americans so we have more disposable income to better care for our families and better fuel the economy. The bottom line is that we all work hard for our money and as such, we should all be able to keep more of it…

Conservative hero Alan Keyes is asking whether there is a pattern of submission surrounding the nation’s 9/11 sites. Apparently he has seen our video expose of Islamic and terrorist memorializing features in the crescent memorial to Flight 93 (now called a broken circle). Like any straight-thinker, he doesn’t like what he sees. The Flight 93 crash site is no place for a giant Islamic-shaped crescent, no matter what it is called.
On this point, Keyes cites Colorado Representative Tom Tancredo’s 2005 objection to the newly unveiled Crescent of Embrace design:
Back in 2005, then-Rep. Tom Tancredo was reported to have sent a letter to the National Park Service “asking the Interior Department to reconsider the crescent-shaped design of the memorial to those aboard a plane hijacked on Sept. 11, 2001, because some may think it honors the terrorists.” Tancredo quite sensibly argues that “regardless of whether ‘the invocation of a Muslim Symbol’ was intentional, ‘it seems that such a symbol is unsuitable for paying appropriate tribute to the heroes of Flight 93 or the ensuing American struggle against radical Islam.’”
Keyes notes our claim that the design is still replete with terrorist memorializing features and he seems to find it credible. Why shouldn’t he? The damning features are all right there in architect Paul Murdoch’s design drawings. Thank you Doctor Keyes!
“Itâ€™s not just embarrassing. It is a dangerous willful blindness, spurning the woken vigilance of Flight 93.”
That’s the last line of the full-page advertisement that Tom Burnett Senior and Alec Rawls will be running in the Somerset Daily American this Friday and Saturday (when the two first ladies will be in town for the 9/11 anniversary):
We are hoping that visitors will hold onto our ad, maybe even tape it to their car windows, and most especially, show it to any press people they come across. Hey, if the Park Service can use 9/11 to plant the world’s largest mosque on the Flight 93 crash site, we can use 9/11 to object.
