I have greatly enjoyed and appreciated Jeffrey Lord’s articles regarding the UCC, Hypocrisy is common to the human condition and Christians unfortunately suffer from it as well. However, it is important, in the interest of the truth, that where it is done in the name of Christ that it be pointed out and shown for what it is.p>I have to mention that Lord improperly, or at least incompletely, attributes the “city on a hill” reference to John Winthrop. Winthrop may get credit for applying the reference to America but the image is from Jesus Christ. In the Gospel of Matthew, Christ said, “You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden.” (Matt. 5:14 NIV). Winthrop was obviously applying the words of Jesus to America and, therefore, Jesus should get credit for the quote. br> — R. Thomas Avery br> St. Louis, Missouri /p> p> What a bunch of crap. Instead of talking about the Pastor, why do you not write about a real issue like the Bosnia affair which was memorized by Hillary and repeated on three different occasions. It is important because it showed how easy it was for her in front of a live audience to lie to the public. She has become a pathetic figure to say the least. By the way, I am a white man from Canada who cares about what the Americans have gone through during the past eight years of Bush-Cheney lies. Do you want this for another four years, or vote for someone who will bring back respectability throughout the world? br> — Roger /p>
The only person or thing responsible for getting Barack Hussein Obama into hot water? C’mon. It’s the same fellow whose face he washes and shaves daily.
In some way, he must be beside himself because of the UCC’s intentions, which just keep public what he desires to conceal.
After all, Hillary had just hoisted herself with her Bosnian petard and remains hanging. His devotees in the MSM and a good chunk of the punditocracy had done all they could, and fairly successfully, to bury or ignore this tar baby to which he remains stuck. He’d even gotten another MSM free pass when he downsized the heat and hatefulness of Wright’s remarks by insinuating, as he did recently in Greensboro, N.C., that they were just “stupid remarks.” And there was that performance on ABC, with gushing The View ladies, where, with typical long-windedness, he appeared to be retreating even further away from those very few, so-called denunciations of Wright.
Still, it’s sad and alarming to see the UCC denomination dive headfirst into this mess. You’d think the denominational leaders, regardless of their apparent left-leaning political bent, would see that they’re volunteering for self-inflicted wounds and denomination-wide problems here.
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
