I absolutely adore the Duck Dynasty clan. Everything about their story is inspiring. They’re a testament to hard work and the power of redemption which I thought was a thing to be celebrated here in America.
But I’m really disappointed in some of the conservative media outlets. Instead of writing about the substance of Phil Robertson’s CPAC speech, which focused on addressing his critics who accuse him of being “too religious,” they focused on a line he said about STDs and how to eradicate them. Of course, the liberal media went crazy too. But I expected better from conservatives.
The truth is, Phil doesn’t give a crap what anyone thinks of him, and even if you disagree with him, you have to respect him for that. In a world where politicians say anything to gain votes and popularity, it’s refreshing to see someone who has a strong moral stance and unwavering faith, despite the haters on the left and right.
“I sincerely love you,” Robertson said in his address. “And by the way, my love for you is not contingent on how you feel about me. You say, ‘Well what if we hate your guts? Do you still love us?’ Sure. You say, ‘You love us, and you’re not worried about how we feel about you, not one bit. Don’t forget that.”
I think it was really smart for Phil to address the critics of his spirituality. He pointed out that the Founding Fathers were God-fearing men, and it’s ignorant to say otherwise. Godless progressives can try to reinvent American history, but at the end of the day, they’re only deceiving themselves.
Quoting George Washington, Robertson said, “Finally that he would most graciously be pleased to dispose us all to do justice, to love mercy, and to demean ourselves with that charity, humility, and pacific temper of mind, which were the characteristics of the Divine Author– he’s talking about Jesus– of our blessed religion, and without a humble imitation of whose example in these things, we can never hope to be a happy nation.”
“Obviously, George Washington was pretty religious,” he added. “What do you think?”
Like it or not, our nation was founded by God-fearing men and on Judeo-Christian values. (Sorry Obama, it actually wasn’t Islam.)
“All of these ‘isms,’ atheism, agnosticism, humanism, post modernism, materialism, idealism, naturalism– what is all that about?” Roberston asked. “Trying to get around what I just told you. Your founding Fathers were godly. So am I. You say, Phil, you’re like George Washington. You’re like Thomas Jefferson. Yeah. I’m just saying they were godly. They founded the greatest nation on earth for crying out loud!”
Yes, Phil is polarizing, and I know some people are perplexed over the perceived “obsession” with the family.
Here’s what I think. These days, we rarely see anyone radically speak the truth and shamelessly talk about their faith in the political sphere. We’ve unfortunately grown used to slimy politicians and crooked leaders who shun religion (except for Islam, of course) and cry, “Separation of church and state OMG!!!!!!” without acknowledging that 1)That’s not even in the constitution and 2) Religion and politics aren’t equivalent to oil and water. Religion and faith in God was a HUGE part of our founding, and if you forget or ignore that, quite frankly, you’re missing the mark. Forget the PC police. I’m a conservative chick who has a relationship with God, so why in the world would I ban Him from every single one of my political conversations? Yes, conservatism makes sense on its own. Heck, there’s a whole atheist group here at CPAC, and I’m so glad they’re here because we really need to rally together to make a difference instead of tearing each other apart. But we’ve grown to a place where it’s almost taboo to mention your faith in front of a political audience, and that’s not cool.
Phil Robertson couldn’t give a crap less, and that’s why so many people love him.

(CNSNews.com) – Reverend Franklin Graham said he did not know whether President Barack Obama dislikes America, as “America’s Mayor” Rudy Giuliani stated last week, but Graham said it is true that Obama “defends Islam and chastises Christians,” denies the “religious freedoms” of those who oppose abortion and gay marriage, and added that our nation is “morally crumbling within” and that “we have turned our back on God.”

“Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani has taken a lot of heat from the media for his remark that he’s not sure if President Obama really loves America,” said Rev. Graham in a Feb. 24 Facebook post.
“I don’t know if that’s true or not, but I do know that the president defends Islam and chastises Christians, rebukes our allies and befriends our enemies, and fully supports gay marriages and abortion but denies the religious freedoms of those who don’t agree,” said the reverend, who oversees the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association.
“Our nation is ridiculed abroad and morally crumbling within,” he said. “We are in trouble. We have turned our back on God.”
At a private dinner gathering on Feb. 18 at the 21 Club in New York City, Giuliani, a Republican, said “I do not believe, and I know this is a horrible thing to say, but I do not believe that the president loves America.”

“He doesn’t love you. And he doesn’t love me. He wasn’t brought up the way you were brought up and I was brought up through love of this country.”
When asked about those comments on Feb. 20, White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said, “It’s sad to see when somebody who has attained a certain level of public stature and even admiration tarnishes that legacy so thoroughly.”
“I don’t take any joy or vindication or satisfaction from that,” said Earnest.
Back on Feb. 13, speaking before an Iranian-American Community Symposium in Arizona, Giuliani referenced numerous acts of terrorism by radical Muslims, including the 9/11 attacks and the shooting slaughter at Ft. Hood, and stressed they all had one thing common.
“They have in common a movement the president of the United States will not recognize,” said Giuliani. “They have been murdered, they have been slaughtered, they have been raped, they have been tortured, they have been beheaded, they have been burned by a movement that the president of the United States will not recognize.”
“What is wrong with him?” said Giuliani. “Is there no passion? Is there no passion for the lives of these innocent people? Is there no caring for them? Do you know what the slaughter at Fort Hood was described as? Workplace violence. Workplace violence.”
“This is a captain [Nidal Malik Hasan] in the United States Army who had become a jihadist two years before, who was communicating with Afghanistan and Pakistan and Yemen,” said Giuliani. “Doesn’t take a genius to figure out the cause for which he was murdering. He told us, ‘Allahu Akbar.’”
“But the president of the United States doesn’t see the connection,” said the former New York City mayor. “Just the other day he called the slaughter of those Jewish people in France a random act. Mr. President, wake up! Come off the golf course. Come back on earth!”

The Alphabet Soup of Sexuality just got a whole lot more inclusive. Or just plain crazy.
According to this, Wesleyan University has extended the already-cumbersome LGBTQ acronym into the even more unwieldy LGBTTQQFAGPBDSM. Which stands for (deep breath) – “Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Transsexual, Queer, Questioning, Flexual, Asexual, Genderf*ck, Polyamourous, Bondage/Disciple, Dominance/Submission, Sadism/Masochism.”
(I can already see a problem with that sequence of letters – starting with that “F” in the middle. Somebody’s going to hear about this one).
So, Wesleyan has got every sexuality under the sun covered (unless something else gets invented). Yet, we have people upset about being called simply “men and women.”
We are so doomed.
At a recent congregational meeting with the new denomination (ECO), there was several things said by the ECO representative that I was not totally thrilled with, but I have been a Presbyterian my whole life and find it hard to change. As you might can tell I am not sure what I am going to do; I have attended another local church a number of times and I like it a lot. But then . . . . . . . the bottom line in any event is that I need to leave the PC(USA) as I do not like or support a lot of the decisions made at their last several General Assemblies.
As I read through the Bible and the Koran simultaneously it makes me love the Bible more and my heart to break for Muslims. The Bible is so personal and intimate “How sweet are your words to my taste” Ps 119:103. Whereas the Koran in harsh, constant references to Satan and hell fire. Scripture leads to sweet surrender from a God-love thing from within. Islam means “submission” by the sword if necessary. There a big difference between submission and surrender. I find sweet peace and joy in my surrender and no need to hate others who aren’t where I am at.
God Bless Texas. What else can you say about the second greatest state in the Union. This is the state that gave us the Alamo and Ted Cruz. This is the state that if the Obama Regime were not interfering, could single handedly lead the nation out of the Great Obama Depression.
Good things come out of Texas. Now something really good has come from Texas.
What is it?
Last night, a Federal Judge in Texas issued a restraining order blocking Barack Obama’s executive Amnesty. Judge Andrew Hansen wrote that the Plaintiffs (the states with real Americans who sued to stop Obama) would suffer irreparable injury if the law were allowed to go forward before the courts had adjudicated the matter.
Score one for the good guys. Former Texas Attorney General and now Texas Governor Greg Abbot led the fight. Abbot is one of the sane Republicans who understands what Amnesty will do to America.
The order on the injunction will immediately be appealed to the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans. Fortunately among the active judges of the 5th Circuit, there is a 2 to 1 majority of judges appointed by Republicans. There is a strong probability that the injunction will be upheld by the 5th Circuit and probably the Supreme Court too, though that will only be by a 5-4 vote.
The real question now is what will the Regime do?
The law has never been a barrier to the actions of Barack Obama. He has deliberately ignored numerous laws and simply rewritten laws if he saw fit. Will Obama just ignore the ruling of the Court in Texas?
Given his narcissism, there is no telling.
If the Republicans in Congress had any sense, they would now pass the Homeland Security funding bill with one addition. They should attach a rider prohibiting the government from spending any money to appeal Judge Hansen’s decision or to even defend the lawsuit.
Meanwhile, God bless Texas!
