Decision Time

Make A Decision!

Decisions, decisions, decisions!  We all have to make them and we all procrastinate as long as we can with difficult decisions.  We say, “We’re trying to get all the facts before we decide,” but we are really trying to decide what happens if we do this and what happens if we do that…if we’re not sure, we prefer to put off the decision hoping that someone or something will make it for us.  (You’re probably not like that, but the rest of us are)

Well, tomorrow is Decision Day.  It is more than Election Day.  It is a day in which we will decide on a direction that our nation will take for the next several decades.  Your children and grandchildren will be effected by the decision you make tomorrow.  If that seems melodramatic, I assure you it is not.

Consider These Decisions…

It was an ELECTED judge whose decision began the rulings that led Roe v. Wade to the Supreme Court where justices appointed by ELECTED Presidents and confirmed by ELECTED Senators made a decision (against over 100 years of precedent law) that abortion was legal.  That initial ruling is now being interpreted as a “right.”

It was a Supreme Court APPOINTED by ELECTED Presidents and confirmed by ELECTED Senators that made the decision that God was to be removed from our society.  The Court’s decision was that the Constitution provided for a “separation clause” that has been used to work toward a secular society.  The Court’s decision was not based on a strict interpretation of the document, and its interpretation still plagues this nation.

It was an ELECTED Senate that, for political reasons alone, made the decision to allow a man, disbarred for lying, to remain President.  And the currently ELECTED President makes Mr. Clinton look like a saint.

Here’s Why YOU Need To Make A Decision

Mr. Obama has called the United States a “post-Christian” nation.  It was Mr. Obama’s decision that has plunged the United States into more debt in four years than his predecessors combined.  It has been Mr. Obama’s decision to lie about his faith.  The decision or decisions made regarding the events in Benghazi ultimately lie with Mr. Obama.  It was Mr. Obama’s decision to send out surrogates to blame an obscure video for an Al-Qaida attack.

It was Mr. Obama’s decision to appoint and approve an Attorney General who has thumbed his nose at Congress and everyone else.  The decision to pass what has become known as “Obamacare” was made in the middle of the night by ELECTED officials who cared nothing for the unintended consequences of their actions.

It is the decision of the Department of Health and Human Services and its APPOINTED Secretary, to require employers to “cover” abortive and contraceptive drugs to their employees even though their personal religious convictions are violated.

Saul Alinsky was never elected to any office, but his beliefs and writings have been studied and believed by liberal democrats for decades.  Contrary to the Judeo-Christian eithic upon which this nation was founded, Alinsky’s philosophy has been blatantly adopted as public policy by the current administration.  Every decision that this administration has made is tainted with Alinsky’s sewage.

My Decision Is A Matter of Faith

Please don’t think that I am so naïve as to believe that the Republican ticket is perfect, but the alternative makes my decision relatively easy.  Governor Romney was not my first choice for a candidate, but the socialist, godless, anti-family, morally bankrupt agenda put forth by the Democrats and Barack Obama is beyond my contempt.  As a Christian, not a Republican, I cannot allow Barak Obama and the democrats the opportunity to APPOINT anyone who will continue to marginalize the Church, violate the sanctity of life, and to thumb their noses at those of us who believe that values matter.

As I said earlier, my decision in my personal vote does not reveal naivete.  Romney may be a better decision but I do not (and probably will not) agree with all of his policies.  However, I do believe he will restore a measure of dignity to the Office of President.  And, I do believe that he hold a faith in Almighty God that the current administration disdains.

It is time for you to make your decision.  I call, today, for you to vote tomorrow.  If you don’t agree with me, go vote just to cancel me out!  Get involved in the process, make a decision.  Your vote, your decision, might make the difference between a baby living and dying, your kids learning the value and importance of prayer, and continuing to worship the God whom we serve freely.

Moses challenged Israel to make a decision to serve the Lord and Joshua did likewise.  Joshua’s words seem to summarize my feelings on this day before Decision Day.  “. . .if serving the LORD seems undesirable to you, then choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your forefathers served beyond the River, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you are living.  But as for me and my household, we will serve the LORD!”

DON’T BELIEVE YOUR LYING EYES

I’m Not Lying, This Isn’t What It Looks Like

There is an old story about a wife who catches her husband in an adulterous act.  His immediate response to her is, “Don’t believe your lying eyes.  This isn’t what it looks like.”

Seems to me that our government and our left-wing media are telling us the same thing over and over and over again, don’t believe your lying eyes.  We see our Diplomats killed in an obvious terrorist attack, but we are told not to believe our lying eyes, it wasn’t what it looked like.  Two weeks later, the government backs away from its initial lying stance because the evidence of what actually happened is overwhelming and the position cannot be defended.  So now, we can believe those lying eyes.

Pakistan

On September 22, Railways Minister Ghulam Ahmad Bilour of Pakistan said this to an applauding news conference, “”I announce today that this blasphemer, this sinner who has spoken nonsense about the holy Prophet, anyone who murders him, I will reward him with $100,000.  I invite the Taliban brothers and the al-Qaida brothers to join me in this blessed mission.”   But, America, don’t believe your lying ears.  This isn’t what it sounds like.

The government of Pakistan told us not to believe our lying eyes, that Bilour’s statement was personal and not a statement of his party or of the current administration.  Bilour’s response?  Bilour said, “I am a Muslim first, then a government representative.”  And therein is the problem.  This Muslim speaks like many (certainly not all) that we hear every day.  The message they deliver is hate, not peace, but our government and left-wing media tells us not to believe our lying eyes and lying ears.

Egypt

In an interview with The New York Times anticipating his upcoming address to the United Nations General Assembly, the new President of Egypt, Islamist Mohammed Morsi , was very clear that Egypt is a different nation that it was just a few months ago.  He asserted that it is not possible to judge Egyptian behavior by the cultural standards of America. But be careful, what you see and hear may be lying to you….

Morsi  praised President Obama for moving “quickly and decisively” to support the Arab spring overthrow of authoritarian leaders, but called on America to change its approach to the Muslim world, saying “Successive American administrations essentially purchased with American taxpayer money the dislike, if not the hatred, of the peoples of the region.”  Morsi accused American Administrations of taking “a very clear biased approach against something that (has) very strong emotional ties to the people of the region that is the issue of Palestine.”  What are my lying ears hearing now?  Was that an Israel reference?  Was he lying?

Mr. Obama announced the Egypt is no longer an ally, though we supply billions of taxpayer money to them.  Our Embassy is stormed, our flag ripped from its mast, a jihadist flag raised, and chaos reigns for many hours in Cairo.  But, the media and the Administration says, “Don’t believe your lying eyes.”

Organization of Islamic Cooperation

Over the past 4 years Muslims have been portrayed as victims, and even now, it is a video, amateurish at best, that has “victimized” them for their faith.  America is accused of lying about Islam.  We are accused of lying about their peaceful nature.  But what does the record show?

Christians are being killed across the Muslim world in a deliberate genocide, encouraged, and taught by the “best” interpreters of the Koran.  The world should be up-in-arms, but we are told the incidents are isolated and we should not believe our lying eyes.

The Organization of Islamic Cooperation, based in Saudi Arabia, has 56 member nations and says it is the the collective voice of the Muslim world, ensuring to safeguard and protect the interests of the Muslim world.  It is second in size only to the United Nations itself. There is no lying when it expresses hostility toward the West in general and Israel in particular.

Have you ever heard a leader of this Islam Organization condemn Islamic lying about violence, much less the violence itself perpetrated against anybody?  During this Administration, particularly, this group has been incredibly successful in introducing a new word into our vocabulary, “Islamophobia.”  The term is intended to be emotional and to elicit a response of disapproval.  Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s effusive apology, the American Embassy in Cairo’s news release, and the President’s own words illustrate the effectiveness of their campaign.

However, if one steps back and looks at the actions, not the words, of the members of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, “Islamophobia” pales in comparison to the atrocities committed by its members against Christians and other minority-religions in the member states.  Somebody’s lying….

Where’s Our Apology?

How is it OK for the Egyptian government, in its outrage, to issue arrest warrants for Pastor Terry Jones and for Nakoula Basseley Nakoula?  My lying ears heard that.  But, how is it that we say nothing, demand nothing when Sheikh Yousef al-Badri, a member of the Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs, associated with the primary Islamic institute of al Azhar University, calls for the “spilling of the blood” of Muslims who convert to Christianity, causing them to live in hiding under the constant threat of vigilantism and death from fundamentalists?  And he has done it multiple times!  Your lying ears have probably not even heard about that!  Where is our outrage?

It is reported by United Nations human rights investigators, that more than 300 Christians in Iran have been arrested, just since 2010.  Are they lying?  According to the investigators, there is a “climate of fear” that exists among Christians in Iran.  There is no question of persecution, but don’t believe your lying eyes or lying ears.

St. John’s Catholic Church

A suicide bomber in Baruchi, Nigeria attacked St. John’s Catholic Church during Mass yesterday, killing 2, wounding 45, and destroying the church.  More than 680 people have been killed in that region alone since January.  Nigeria is 40% Christian, the largest percentage of any Muslim-majority country.  A group called, “Boko Haran” which means “western education is sacrilege” has vowed to kill all Christians.  Their actions suggest they are not lying.  Have you heard the same kind of apologies from any OIC member as our government has offered them?  Have you heard anyone from our left-wing media even probe for such an apology?  But don’t believe your lying eyes or your lying ears….

Then there is Sudan.  The government of Sudan exists in the north of the country.  It is Sunni Muslim. It has, for decades, sustained persecution of Christian and animist minorities in the south.  Our left-wing press calls it, “civil war,” but, again, they are lying.  What is happening is simply the systematic killing of anyone who does not embrace Islam.  Reports from the United Nations indicate that between 53,000 and 75,000 innocent civilians have been displaced from homes and buildings that have been looted and destroyed.  You’ve seen some video of the “rebels” in the south being killed, but you are told not to believe your lying eyes.

Not only do we not hear apologies proffered by OIC members for atrocities, our Administration defends their outrage.  Worse, our own left-wing media doesn’t ask for apologies or even ask probing questions because it might offend and compromise the reelection of its anointed president.  The left-wing media is good at manipulating your eyes and ears to desensitize the lying.

Conspiracy of Silence

There is a conscious and virulent conspiracy of silence surrounding this president and his policies in the Muslim world.   The violent expressions of religious intolerance experienced there are not reported or are not considered matters of concern, only our apologies to those whom we have “offended.”

When Barak Obama schedules visits to The View  and The Letterman Show to campaign and publicly shuns a meeting with Benjamin Netanyahu, Prime Minister of Israel, our staunchest ally, his priorities seem obvious and must be questioned.  In a week when we, the American public, will listen to speeches haranguing us, our culture, and our religion, our President will be yukking-it-up with his TV cronies rather than shoring up the most important alliance in the region.  But don’t believe your lying eyes.

The policy of appease and apologize has to stop.  If allowed to its logical conclusion, it will cost Americans our deepest held freedom.  But don’t believe your lying eyes.
