Give 'em hell, Ann!

Ann Coulter is in the news again stirring up more trouble :)

Apparently, she had the audacity to state fundamental Christian beliefs in an interview on CNBC's show "The Big Idea" with Donny Deutsch. When asked about what a perfect world would be like for her, she replied in part that everyone would be Christian. As so many in the media do, Deutsch seized upon the "intolerance" of such a view and pressed the issue, at one point implying that her wish for Jews to convert to Christianity was akin to Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's desire to "wipe Israel off the face of the earth."

Coulter went on to explain that she didn't want Jews to be wiped out, but rather for them to be "perfected" in becoming Christian. She further elaborated by explaining the fundamental Christian doctrine that Christ came to do for us what we could not do for ourselves: perfectly keep the Law of God. Deutsch (who professes to be a practicing Jew) expressed offense at the notion that Jews are in any way in need of "perfection" at all, and subsequently accused Coulter of Anti-Semitism for her remarks.

Ann, remember the words of Christ: "Blessed are you when others revile you and persecute you and utter all kinds of evil against you falsely on my account. Rejoice and be glad, for your reward is great in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you." - Matt 5:11-12 (ESV)

It is a fundamental belief of Christianity that all men need Christ for salvation. This of course presents a paradox for liberals who call for religious tolerance yet refuse to tolerate this religious beliefs. Continuing evidence that religious pluralism and "tolerance" are fundamentally at odds with Christianity. Christians can and should live peaceably with all men insomuch as they can, but when peace requires sacrifice or compromise of fundamental belief there can be no such peace...Christians must rise up to defend the faith once for all delivered to the saints.

God bless you, Ms. Coulter.

Bringing "Currency" to Things

OK, it's been awhile since I've posted anything, largely because work and personal life have not permitted me much time. Of course, that hasn't stopped the world from turning :)

Among the articles that caught my attention today is a British judge's ruling that Al Gore's pseudo-scientific fantasy film An Inconvenient Truth cannot be shown in schools without government "guidance notes." The ruling comes in response to a suit filed by a concerned school parent which labelled the film as containing "serious scientific inaccuracies, political propaganda and sentimental mush." According to the article, the judge ruled that showing the film without government guidance notes would "breach education laws prohibiting the promotion of unbalanced political viewpoints."

At least the English have some sense! :)

Meanwhile, it appears things have indeed been set in motion to move the United States further down the path of integration with its neighbors to the north and south. The most recent (and most public) proof of this came in an interview with Former Mexican President Vincente Fox by Larry King. According to Fox, an agreement had been reached between Fox and President Bush to pursue the Free Trade Agreement of the Americas (FTAA), which in part called for a regional currency similar to the euro to be used throughout the Western Hemisphere.

There is of course speculation that the recent devaluation of the dollar is intentional, and that in part it could be a move being made to pave the way for a "more stable" regional currency.

Folks, if we move to regional currency we move towards regional governance. Plain and simple. Between the illegal immigrant crisis and the constant (and somewhat clandestine) move towards regional economic and political governance, there is no doubt that the future sovereignty of the Unites States of America is in jeopardy.
