Mosque will be terrorist monument

Regarding the monument to Muslim martyrs, New York City, N.Y. It is a monument to honor their dead heroes of 9/11. This so-called mosque will be a gathering place for all Muslim tourists from this country, and tourists from abroad, a must see, and place to worship, for those Muslim terrorists who murdered thousands of innocent people.

It is to be a monument to them, not a mosque.

They must think the American people, you and I, and all of the rest of us are just plain stupid. We allow our laws and our Constitution to used against us. It does not matter how outrageous the demands are ... we will finally give, just to be fair.

May God Help us. I do not know why He should, but I will ask Him one time: Help us God, we can't seem to help ourselves.

Obama is worst president ever

Apologize to the whole world for America. Bow to foreign leaders. Interject yourself in a police matter between a black man and a white policeman, and say the police are stupid. Ignore the law when it comes to New Black Panther members standing outside a polling place carrying billy clubs. Endorse building a mosque 600 feet from ground zero in New York. Send a cleric who refuses to condemn Hamas on a trip to the Middle East on the U.S. taxpayers' dime. Refuse to uphold the Constitution by not securing the borders, but sue Arizona when it tries to take steps to do what the federal government won't. Bury us in debt and expand the federal government. Destroy our health care. Pay off your union buddies.

Tell me, America, is there still enough white guilt to re-elect this black socialist? The worst president this country has ever had, you bet! Let's hope Americans will come to their senses and demand change.

Pray that Rice finds way back

Christians should love and pray for author Anne Rice. She lost her daughter to leukemia in 1972, buried her gay best friend, who died of AIDS in 1994, and in 2002 she buried her husband of 41 years. Her son is a gay rights activist whom she loves, even though the Bible says that homosexual activity is sinful. Right now she says she loves Christ but rejects Christianity. Pray that she will read her Bible more and realize that the Church is Christ's Bride. With all her faults, Christ loves Her.

Rice writes: "In the name of Christ, I refuse to be anti-gay. I refuse to be anti-feminist. I refuse to be anti-artificial birth control. I refuse to be anti-Democrat. I refuse to be anti-secular humanism. I refuse to be anti-science. I refuse to be anti-life."

She is confused about Christ. The Bible is true, and modern American culture is false. When confronted with the issues of homosexuality, feminism, birth control, politics and world-view, the Church must go to the Bible. Let's pray that Anne Rice would realize that Jesus wants to bring all opinions under the authority of His Word.
