Parents have no choice, School has “legitimate state interest” in teaching the homosexual lifestyle

Further proof that you children are not yours but the states. If the ACLU had their way all children would be wards of the state and just in you house. This parent was arrested because he objected to his elementary age (less than 10) child being taught about alternative sexual lifestyles. What about teaching the kids the three R’s.

They are also told that parents have no rights once they send their children to public schools. They just take our money and tell us to shut up while they give us the “bonus” of exposing our children to this we don’t want them to be exposed to. No matter your feelings on the moral issues debated in this article, the point that parents are loosing their rights as parents should be alarming. If the state begins to raise our children we are all in for trouble, since we can see how well they handle everything else.

Video Friday: Ron Paul Immigration

I am a huge fan of Ron Paul and would love him to be elected as our president, unfortunately the masses won’t vote for him because he would end to many hand outs. But I think most people would agree with him if they knew more about him so I am doing my part.

Politics – Bringing Back the Draft – FOX Fan – Speak Out

I am sorry but I have to say something.  Wasn’t it the democrats claiming if Bush is elected he will bring back the draft?  Is the draft something we really want to use a leverage to keep from going to war?  Congress is the only ones who can delcare war why don’t they bone up and take a stand if they feel things are not right. – Bringing Back the Draft – FOX Fan – Speak Out

Secondly minimum wage was raised in Ohio because most people don’t think long term.  Minimum wage is a great political idea but has negative effects in the long run.  Small businesses here are already being forced to decide if they are to lay people off or raise their prices.  Either way we all pay the price.

Random thoughts…


  1. When the democrats loose an election they complain the people weren’t smart enough to understand them.  I guess they just got smarter because I don’t hear that from republicans.


  1. How far are we willing to push entertainment in our church services under the guise of bringing people into the church hopefully one day to have a relationship with Jesus, before we feel like we are cheapening the Gospel?



  1. Why do people feel the need to make the Bible say things it doesn’t say?  Isn’t this a kin to saying “I don’t trust God to know what he is doing?”


  1. Why do we make running and playing against the rules in school and then complain that our kids are fat?


  1. How come I have never heard a sermon on “Give strong drink unto him that is ready to perish, and wine unto those that be of heavy hearts. Let him drink, and forget his poverty, and remember his misery no more.” (Proverbs 31:6-7)
    1. How can people say it was only grape juice?


  1. What happened to the days when Cracker Jack’s had good prizes?


  1. How in the world did I ever survive child hood without the nanny state?  My parents never made me wear a helmet (and I Have the scars to prove it), they never ‘baby proofed’ the house, and I played things like tag.


  1. Is there really such a biblical concept as sacrificial giving?

Rant warning

OK, so this is the last of my political rants for today.  I can’t stand people who will vote against their principles because in one particular issue they like the results.  In this case I am talking about the smoking ban in Ohio.  Many of the same people who were upset about the Kelo V New London decision that weakened private property rights of home owners have no problem with destroying the private property rights on business owners because they don’t like smoke.  It seems to me that it really boils down to not having the strength of your convictions or the stones to do the work needed to force businesses to supply for your demand, a smoke free establishment.
            Ok here is what I mean, if I don’t want to have to deal with smoke I will go to restaurants that don’t have smoking sections, not because they were forced to but because it was a smart business decision.  Applebee’s in our area banned smoking as a private business decision, Ruby Tuesday right across the street did not.  Now if I want to work within a capitalist society I will simply not go to Ruby Tuesday.  They will have a choice taking the loss, or banning smoking on their own.  But tyranny by the majority is still tyranny and many business and people are now being forced to obey the will of the masses that do not even patronize their establishments.  These types of issues should be left out of the governments hands in the people should be allowed to vote with their wallets.  Then everyone can have what they want, unless of course what you really want is a nanny state that will protect you from your own spinelessness.

The Lesser of Two Evils

            I have been forced to watch a great deal of political ads as of late, and they are proving something profound to me.  I was correct in my assumption that politics in America has simply become the choice of the lesser of two evils.  Every commercial that comes across the airwaves is nothing but mudslinging, there is more mud that Woodstock ’95.  No candidate has yet to tell me why I should vote for them, but I am very well informed on the reasons their opponent is evil and I shouldn’t vote for their opponent, leaving me with only the option of voting for them.  But since they have given me no good reason to vote for them, only reasons not to vote for their opponent, assume they believe what I believe.  I am voting for the lesser of two evils.

            Our two party system stopped working the minute they became the same party.  Both sides of the aisle are simply concerned with serving the needs of, not the people they supposedly represent but the party its self.  I watched “Man of the Year” this weekend and it was a fairly good movie although it seem to try to be a little to John Grisham for my taste.  While I rarely agree with Robin Williams on anything political I think this movie will strike a chord with many people who are tired of the status quo in American politics.  I look to the quotes of our Fathers who looked upon the government, not as an end all be all, to solve our problems, but a necessary evil at best.

“A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves largesse from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most benefits from the public treasury, with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy, always followed by a dictatorship.” –Alexander Tyler

“The issue today is the same as it has been throughout all history, whether man shall be allowed to govern himself or be ruled by a small elite.”– Thomas Jefferson

“There are more instances of the abridgment of the freedom of the people by gradual and silent encroachments of those in power than by violent and sudden usurpations.”
— James Madison

All men having power ought to be distrusted to a certain degree.”– James Madison

A wise and frugal government … shall restrain men from injuring one another, shall leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned. This is the sum of good government.”– Thomas Jefferson

        Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience. – C.S. Lewis (I know not one of our Founding Fathers but a true statement)

            Oh, if only they were not so right…

Christians on Trial

Sometime in the near future in Indonesia three Christians will be executed by firing squad; what is their crime? Attempting to convert Muslim children to Christianity. This shouldn’t be so surprising hey have been here before and Jesus warned us things like this would come again. What makes the issue worse is that at the same time they have already released Abu Bakar Bashir, Abu Bakar Bashir, 68, had served 26 months for conspiracy in the 2002 Bali bombings, which killed 202 people in the world’s most populous Muslim nation.  So, yes you understand correctly, they are letting a terrorist walk and executing the Christians.

However, I do not actually want to make this a political article, what would I do?  If I faced the police when I ministered instead of the occasional angry parent, what would I do?  If the worst thing that could happen to me was being tortured and killed instead of feeling bad because I did poorly, what would I do?  If I was faced with real persecution instead of a game room, what would I do?  Would I still follow after Christ, take up my cross, would I hold my head high as the lion’s cage was opened?  Or would I turn and run and beg for my life?  Would I deny my savior to save my skin?  I hope not but I suppose that isn’t something you know until you are there, just ask Peter.
