Re: Bill Barnwell’s Is Your Bible Too Liberal?:
What a bunch of poppycock. What gives anyone the right to
“reinterpret” God’s Holy Word to suit a particular political
agenda? (example: The Jesus Seminar, which has the audacity to
definitively say that in their opinion and by the vote of their
colored beads, whether Jesus actually said or did not say certain
things — that is positively breathtaking in its arrogance) One
treads upon dangerous territory when one tries to tilt the gospel
toward anything but the truth inspired by God Himself. Bible
translators have for generations attempted to translate or
paraphrase Scripture with the best scholarship and resources
available. Certainly there are Bibles that show a bent to one
direction or the other, and what is more dangerous to me, are the
current efforts to use politically correct and/or inclusive
language so as to avoid “offending” anybody’s sensibilities. Good
grief! If you are offended by the Truth and don’t know any of the
history of Scripture and its writing, then you will fall into the
trap of thinking as the short-sighted ones who are trying to sell
Bibles and not really concerned with the integrity of God’s Word.
Nobody is more conservative than I on matters theological and
political, but this goes too far. No conservative in his right
mind and no liberal who is honest would endorse such drivel as
this. These people have too much time on their hands.

I read the translators manifesto. Of course, it seemed appealing.
Then I went to part of the Scripture being translated. I started
with Matthew — I got as far as Mary becoming pregnant by the
“Divine Guide.” Divine Guide replacing the King James Version
“Holy Ghost.” Why they chose “Divine Guide” instead of “Holy
Spirit” is beyond me. Sorry for them, to my ears “Divine Guide”
sounds awfully liberal! In fact it sounds “New Age.” I am afraid
I might laugh at the rest of it like I do the “Living Bible.” I
think I will stick to the Geneva, KJV, RSV, NIV, or NASB. I
sympathize with what they are trying to do, but after your
article and my brief encounter I am suspicious of the

NOT NEARLY AS TOUGH
Re: Quin Hillyer’s Pentagon in the Tanker:
Some of the article by Quin Hillyer baffled me. It read like a press release from Air Bus and seemed out of touch with what has gone on in American defense.
First, I do know split contract production. Nobody who knows the
first thing about the split of Submarine production between
Electric Boat Corp and Northrop for the Seawolf and Virginia
class would stand for doing it with something as dynamic as an
Airplane contract. Second the description of the Northrop plane
that they won the bid contract is mystifying: “…more
versatile…?” “not nearly as tough” would be my description.
There certainly will be politics involve but there always will be

Re: Wayne Crews’ and Ryan Young’s Price Fixing:
I am very curious to know if the writers were referring to
Minimum Advertised Pricing agreements in their references to
“Minimum Pricing.” Minimum Pricing and Minimum Advertised Pricing
(MAP) are two very different things. Since many readers have
probably encountered MAP during online shopping, this should be

Re: Lisa Fabrizio’s O-lympics:
How about “Oh-limpics”?
By the way, whatever the apologizer-in-chief has been doing, it’s not lecturing about patriotism. It continues to be in-our-faces, here and abroad, a display of un-patriotism.
The White House occupant has no idea of what patriotism means,
unless he thinks it’s complete deconstruction of America, or
fiscal collapse and movement into second- or- third-world

JOINED AT THE HIP
Re: Matthew Vadum’s SEIU Divorces ACORN?:
Well, not likely. This so-called “divorce” is more like those cases where a couple divorces, but continues to live together in order that both parties receive their Social Security, Medicare, whatever, while had they remained married, their benefits would have been slashed.
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?
