Download the Sky Angel Cowboy Audio File

Tuesday, March 4th, 2008

I’m still getting a lot of request for Logan, the Sky Angel Cowboy audio file. I have it and would be happy to email it to you. The reason I’m just not posting a link to it is because I’m afraid that my site might get knocked down by the number of downloads.
Anyway, if you want it, please email me at steve@worshippingchristian.org and I will send it to you. Please put “Logan Audio” in the subject line of the email.

Obama Ties Sermon on The Mount with Same-Sex Issues

Tuesday, March 4th, 2008

With voting just hours away in “Super Tuesday II,” some remarks by Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama linking same-sex relationships to Jesus’ famous Sermon on the Mount are raising some eyebrows in the Christian community.

During a Sunday campaign stop in Nelsonville, Ohio, Pastor Leon Forte of Grace Christian Center in Athens, Ohio, asked the Illinois senator to address social concerns.

“Your campaign sets a quandary for most evangelical Christians,” Forte said. “They believe in the social agenda that you have. They have a problem with what the conservatives have laid out as the moral litmus test about who is worthy and who is not.”

As part of a lengthy videotaped response, Obama referred to the speech by Jesus found in the Gospel of Matthew, as well as some anti-homosexuality statements made by the apostle Paul which he called “obscure”:

I will tell you that I don’t believe in gay marriage, but I do think that people who are gay and lesbian should be treated with dignity and respect and that the state should not discriminate against them. So, I believe in civil unions that allow a same-sex couple to visit each other in a hospital or transfer property to each other. I don’t think it should be called marriage, but I think that it is a legal right that they should have that is recognized by the state. If people find that controversial then I would just refer them to the Sermon on the Mount, which I think is, in my mind, for my faith, more central than an obscure passage in Romans. That’s my view. But we can have a respectful disagreement on that.

French Muslim Terrorist Fire on Police

Tuesday, March 4th, 2008

Here is a lexicon that you may want to study before reading this article.
Hooded Attackers: Muslim Terrorist.
Rioting Youths: Young Muslim Terrorist.
Youths: Practicing Young Muslim Terrorist.
Notice that the article never once mentions the fact that these terrorist are Muslims, thus the helpful lexicon above.

PARIS: Dozens of hooded attackers (aka Muslim Terrorist. -ed.) fired buckshot and nails at police this weekend, wounding four officers, France’s interior minister said.

Michele Alliot-Marie called the Sunday afternoon attack an “ambush,” saying that about 30 people, some of them armed, were waiting for the officers in the southern Paris suburb of Grigny. The officers were responding to a call about vandalism at a local bakery.

Three officers were hit in face with buckshot; another was hit in the leg with buckshot and nails and was hospitalized, Sunday’s statement said.

The minister expressed “total support” for the officers, who she said work under “particularly difficult conditions.”

Alliot-Marie said efforts were under way to identify and apprehend those involved in the incident.

In November, rioting youths (aka Young Muslim Terrorist. -ed.) in another Paris suburb opened fire on police, injuring at least 10.

That attack in Villiers-le-Bel fueled fears of a repeat of riots that raged across France’s neglected suburbs for three weeks in November 2005. Police managed to bring last year’s unrest under control in a matter of days.

Last month, police raided housing projects in Villiers-le-Bel and neighboring towns north of the French capital, detaining 35 people in connection with the riots there. Authorities have said youths (aka Practicing Young Muslim Terrorist. -ed.) organized a system to target police with gunfire.

“Gaza Rocketeers Confound Israel” or BBC Media Bias At It’s Best

Tuesday, March 4th, 2008

Jonathan Marcus, a BBC diplomatic correspondent, brings new meaning to the term “media bias”.
Mr. Marcus and the BBC would have us believe that Hamas rocket attacks against Israel are a new thing, brought about as retaliation for Israeli military operations in Gaza. Nothing could be further from the truth.
The fact is, Israel is finally responding to continuous rocket attacks against it’s civilian population centers.
Unlike the Israelis, who attempt to avoid inflicting civilian casualties (despite the fact that the Pali terrorist attack from civilian locations), the Pali terrorist intentionally fire their rockets at innocent civilians in Israeli cities.
Mr. Marcus uses the word “deterrence” in regards to the Pali terrorist rocket attacks. He implies that the rocket attacks are only used in an attempt to “deter” the Israeli military from attacking Gaza, when in fact, almost all Israeli responses are to the continuous barrage of rockets that falls almost daily on innocent Israeli civilians.
Here’s the article, short on facts, but heavy with spin:

The low-level war between Israel and the militant Hamas group in the Gaza Strip has flared into a new upsurge of violence with Israeli strikes on Palestinian militants being met by a barrage of rockets fired into southern Israel.

Responding to this latest fighting Israel’s Prime Minister Ehud Olmert, who is on a visit to Japan, offered his citizens little hope of an early end to the rocket attacks.

“This is a long process and a painful one and we haven’t any magic formulas to solve this today,” he said.

He repeated his threat against the Hamas leadership, asserting that “no-one in Hamas, neither among the low ranks nor among the senior ranks will be immune”. The Palestinians, he warned, were testing Israel’s patience to the limit.

While the litany of attacks and apparent reprisals is familiar this is not a static conflict.

Hamas’s goal appears to be to establish a balance of deterrence they hope will encourage the Israeli government to restrain its own forces

The Palestinian rocket fire is creeping slowly northwards in Israel, from Sderot just a mile from Gaza’s border to Ashkelon 10km (six miles) away, as militants deploy better-manufactured and longer-range weapons.

Israeli military planners fear that in due course Ashdod 30km away could come under regular attack.

Under pressure

The Palestinians also seem to be able to stock-pile quantities of rockets; Wednesday’s barrage of some 40-50 missiles providing a taster for the Israelis of the potential threat to come.

The strategy of the Palestinian militants is also becoming clearer.

They are well aware of the Israeli military’s capabilities. Their goal appears to be to establish a balance of deterrence with each significant Israeli incursion or targeted killing meeting a significant response; one that they hope will encourage the Israeli government to restrain its own forces.
