Obama hopes to persuade all Americans to accept homosexuality


WASHINGTON, DC - President Barack Obama says that while he's dedicated to expanding homosexual rights, many Americans still cling to what he calls "worn arguments and old attitudes."

At a White House celebration of Gay Pride Month, Obama said he hopes to persuade all Americans to accept homosexuality. ""There are good and decent people in this country who don't yet fully embrace their gay brothers and sisters -- not yet," said the president. "That's why I've spoken about these issues -- not just in front of you -- but in front of unlikely audiences, in front of African-American church members."

Obama acknowledged that many Americans still disapprove of homosexuality. "There are still fellow citizens, perhaps neighbors or even family members and loved ones, who still hold fast to worn arguments and old attitudes," he stated.

He added that Congress should repeal what Obama referred to as "the so-called Defense of Marriage Act" -- and that his administration is working to pass a hate crimes bill and to repeal the "don't ask, don't tell" policy on homosexuals in the military.

The audience at the White House ceremony included Episcopal Bishop Gene Robinson and other homosexual clergy. Obama introduced Robinson as a "special friend."



Gee, I wonder what he means by "fellow citizens that still hold fast to worn arguments and old attitudes?" Is it those that cling to biblical values and Christ-like faith that will not yield to belligerent behavior and immoral beliefs?
I sincerely do not believe this nation is going to ever recover from the atrocities of the BHO administration, but then again, that was his whole plan to begin with.
Are there any Democrats or liberal supporters that no longer can stomach the man they put into office?

Laughing With

My friend David e-mailed me this awesome video of Regina Spektor. It is a definite must see.



Lyrics

No one laughs at God in a hospital
No one laughs at God in a war
No one's laughing at God when they're starving or freezing or so very poor

No one laughs at God when the doctor calls after some routine tests
No one's laughing at God when it's gotten real late and their kid's not back from that party yet

No one laughs at God when their airplane starts to uncontrollably shake
No one's laughing at God when they see the one they love hand in hand with someone else and they hope that they're mistaken
No one laughs at God when the cops knock on their door and they say "We've got some bad new, sir,"
No one's laughing at God when there's a famine, fire or flood

But God can be funny
At a cocktail party while listening to a good God-themed joke or
Or when the crazies say he hates us and they get so red in the head you think that they're about to choke

God can be funny
When told he'll give you money if you just pray the right way
And when presented like a genie
Who does magic like Houdini
Or grants wishes like Jiminy Cricket and Santa Claus

God can be so hilarious
Ha ha
Ha ha

No one laughs at God in a hospital
No one laughs at God in a war
No one's laughing at God when they've lost all they got and they don't know what for

No one laughs at God on the day they realize that the last sight they'll ever see is a pair of hateful eyes
No one's laughing at God when they're saying their goodbyes

But God can be funny
At a cocktail party while listening to a good God-themed joke or
Or when the crazies say he hates us and they get so red in the head you think that they're about to choke

God can be funny
When told he'll give you money if you just pray the right way
And when presented like a genie
Who does magic like Houdini
Or grants wishes like Jiminy Cricket and Santa Claus

God can be so hilarious

No one laughs at God in a hospital
No one laughs at God in a war

No one laughs at God in a hospital
No one laughs at God in a war

No one's laughing at God in a hospital
No one's laughing at God in a war

No one's laughing at God when they're starving or freezing or so very poor

No one's laughing at God
No one's laughing at God
No one's laughing at God
We're all laughing with God

Faith Healing

Trial in death of infant raises questions of parental rights, religious freedom.


by Steve Mayes, The Oregonian
Sunday June 21, 2009, 9:03 PM

Rick Bowmer/The Associated Press
Carl and Raylene Worthington arrive June 15 at the Clackamas County Courthouse for a pretrial hearing in the faith-healing death of their 15-month-old daughter, Ava. The Worthingtons are expecting another child later this year.
OREGON CITY -- Ava Worthington died surrounded by loved ones who believed their prayers would heal the young child.

As the 15-month-old girl struggled to breathe, church members anointed her with oil and pleaded with God to provide a cure. But Ava died March 2, 2008, of bronchial pneumonia and a blood infection. Antibiotics could have saved her life, the state medical examiner's office said.

Her death was more than a tragedy, according to Clackamas County prosecutors, it was a crime. Ava's parents, Carl and Raylene Worthington, are scheduled for trial beginning Tuesday on charges of manslaughter and criminal mistreatment.

The Worthington case will be the first time anyone in Oregon has been prosecuted under a 1999 law passed in response to an extraordinary number of child deaths involving the Worthingtons' church, the Followers of Christ in Oregon City. The law eliminated religion as a defense in most cases of medical neglect.

For nearly a decade after Oregon cracked down on faith-healing deaths, there were no verified cases of Followers of Christ children dying from medical neglect. Then last spring the faith-healing controversy rocketed back into the headlines.

Four months after Ava died, her 16-year-old uncle, Neil Beagley, died of complications from an untreated urinary tract blockage. Beagley's parents, also members of the Followers of Christ church, are scheduled for trial in January on charges of criminally negligent homicide.

"It shows how these cases continue. The cycle continues unbroken," said Peters, author of "When Prayer Fails: Faith Healing, Children and the Law."

The Worthington trial will touch on some profound questions. When does a child's welfare outweigh religious freedom? When does the state's responsibility to safeguard children trump parental rights? Perhaps the most haunting question is this: What kind of parent stands by while a child writhes in pain or suffers a lingering death?

"Part of what makes these cases so tragic is that the parents are doing what they think is best for their children," Peters said. "There is no criminal intent."

Religious freedom
The Worthingtons maintain that the state and federal constitutions give them the right to care for their children according to their religious beliefs. Their lawyers have established the Worthington Defense Fund and are soliciting donations to defend those rights.

On Saturday, the church issued a statement through attorney Steven B. Ungar that addressed the church's position: "Family autonomy is a deeply respected value and tradition in our country, as is religious freedom. Both are reflected in a myriad of laws at every level. And while the government traditionally has a say in some decisions involving parent and child, criminally charging the Worthingtons under these circumstances violates the Constitution and is an abuse of power."

Prosecutors say religious and parental rights do not give the Worthingtons the right to endanger the life of a child.

On that point, the law favors the state.

Nationally, courts have ruled that states may override parents and require medical treatment, such as dental work or tonsillectomies, for young children. Some courts have limited the state's right to intervene to cases where the child's life is threatened.

"The vast majority of cases from around the country hold that the state does have the power to punish parents for withholding medical treatment that would have saved a child's life," said Charles F. Hinkle, a Portland attorney who specializes in constitutional issues and has consulted with the Worthingtons' attorneys.

No Oregon appellate court has ruled that religious freedom is absolute.

"Defense lawyers typically wave the First Amendment or the Constitution around, claiming there's some sort of constitutional right at stake, even though there isn't," said Greg Hamilton of the Northwest Religious Liberty Association, an organization dedicated to protecting religious freedom. "God uses human beings to create remedies and to work with prayer in one hand and medical science in the other."

A recent Wisconsin case again tested these constitutional boundaries.

Two weeks after Ava died, an 11-year-old Wisconsin girl, Kara Neumann, died from an undiagnosed diabetic attack. Neumann's parents, who tried to heal the girl with prayer, argued that their constitutional right to religious freedom protected them from criminal charges

Judge Vincent Howard rejected the Neumanns' argument and ordered them to stand trial. "The free exercise clause of the First Amendment protects religious belief but not necessarily conduct," Howard said in his ruling.

The girl's mother was convicted last month of second-degree reckless homicide. The father goes to trial next month.

This is really disturbing. As I a Christian I truly believe in faith healing, but if you are not miraculously healed when hands are laid on you, then it would be time to go and see a doctor. God gave the brains to these intelligent people and we should feel at liberty to use them. There is nothing wrong with seeking medical help, none whatsoever. If it wasn't for my doctor's I would be dead today.

I find this type of religious behavior disgusting and demented. Every member of that church should be charged with child abuse, neglect or endangerment of a minor, or even manslaughter. That beautiful little baby and teenage boy did not have to die such a gruesome and painful deaths. What kind of parents would stand idly by and watch their precious children suffer needlessly? Where was their love and compassion?

Children are a blessing and it is our duty, as parents, to care, nurture and protect them. That little girl had no champion to voice her cries for help. The 16-year-old boy also needed someone to help save him. He was only 16-years-old!! He was not mature enough to make a cognitive decision regarding his health.

Southern Baptists warned about hate crimes

LOUISVILLE, Ky. - Prison Fellowship founder Charles Colson predicts pastors will soon face prosecution under hate crimes laws if they preach that same-sex relationships are sinful.

Colson, who served prison time for his role in the Watergate scandal, delivered a grim forecast to Southern Baptist pastors at their annual meeting in Louisville, Ky.

Sponsors of congressional hate crimes legislation insist it won't restrict speech, but Colson warned that ministers will face the threat of prosecution within the next two years.

He also said medical professionals are losing their conscience right to refuse to perform abortions, and faith-based ministries could soon have to hire non-believers.

Colson also predicted a continuing threat from Islamic terrorists and dismissed the Quran as an "irrational" invention of Muhammad rather than divinely inspired scripture.


We all know that if this horrid atrocity passes it will be the end of all true Christian programs on the radio and tv as well as permanently silencing pastors or anyone who speaks the truth.

The world hated Jesus so what makes us think that we are not going to face the same horrid persecutions? We know, by the apostles examples, that we are going to find ourselves in jail for speaking the truth and condemning sin, all sin. No one wants to be told that they are doing wrong and sinning against God.

Right now there is nothing we can do but pray, we have made the calls, written letters and e-mailed our representatives. This is out of our hands but not out of Jehovah God's hands.

FOUR FRIDAY MEME

I am taking a quick break from politics and will see how you all answer on this fun meme.
So, after you read my answers, feel free to place your own. I hope everyone has a great and blessed weekend may all sadness and illness be driven away by our Heavenly Father. See you all on MONDAY!!


Q1 - Movies: As a rule, when you go out to watch a movie, do you try to make it to the theater in time to watch all of the previews? Related: Do you ever stay all the way through the credits?

Yes, always show up a few minutes early to get my condiments and then find a great seat. Sometimes I stay for all the credits in case their is an additional scene, like from X-Men.


Q2 - Pay For Free: Video calls via Skype, NPR, Facebook, Public Television, MySpace, Twitter, the online edition of The New York Times, and millions of other things in this world are available to you for free. What are some things you now use for free that you would gladly pay to use if charged a reasonable fee?

Hmmm....I guess my blog. I can't live without it.

Q3 - Crime: According to the FBI's Preliminary Annual Uniform Crime Report, the U.S. experienced a 2.5 percent decrease in the number of violent crimes and a 1.6 percent decline in the number of property crimes for 2008 compared with data from 2007. The report is based on information that the FBI gathered from 12,750 law enforcement agencies that submitted six to 12 comparable months of data to the FBI for both 2007 and 2008. In 2008, all four of the violent crime offense categories declined nationwide compared with data from 2007. Murder and non-negligent manslaughter declined 4.4 percent, aggravated assault was down 3.2 percent, and robbery decreased 1.1 percent. Does it feel to you as though crime has dropped over the last year, stayed about the same, or gotten worse?

I believe it has gotten worse, especially on my street. Lol!

Q4 - Bring It!: If you could will any one thing to fall from the sky and harmlessly land in your lap -- aside from money, jewelry, precious metals, or a winning lottery ticket -- what would it be?

What's the point if I can't have the above exceptions? Hee....this is a tough one.....Well, if it doesn't have be tangible I would will a brilliant mind.

Will feds take over public education?

An educational expert is warning that new federal test standards could lead to a federal takeover of the nation's public schools.

Education Secretary Arne Duncan recently announced that the federal government will be spending up to $350 million to create standardized tests compatible with whatever standards are agreed upon by the Common Core State Standards Initiative. So far, 46 states have signed on to participate in the drafting of the educational standards.

Neal McCluskey, the associate director of the Cato Institute's Center for Educational Freedom, says essentially the states will be willing to accept the national tests if federal money comes with it. He adds that, unfortunately, if enough money is put on the table, the federal government will essentially be calling the shots.

McCluskey hopes that if this happens, people will demand more school choice.

"Well hopefully it will actually, if this does happen, embolden people to demand more school choice, because there are a lot of people who won't want a single standard imposed on their kids in public schools," he points out. "And if that's what they are going to get, they'll say, 'Well, I want another option, and I don't want my tax dollars to have to go to a system that not only doesn't the local board control, the state doesn't control, but the federal government controls it.'"

The Constitution does not give the federal government any control over education, according to McCluskey.


Quite frankly, I am not really sure what to think about this. I have my boys in the public schools right now and this is a bit worrisome or it could be good news, however, with BHO in office, I am more concerned.

Vets fight ACLU to keep war memorial

Lawyers are providing written arguments in a case in which a cross has been banned at a veteran memorial in the Mojave Desert.

The American Civil Liberties Union, or ACLU, filed suit because the cross, which honors soldiers who gave their lives for their country, was on federal property. Congress approved a bill that turned the one-acre site over to veterans in exchange for five acres of other land. Kelly Shackleford heads Liberty Legal Institute.

"The ACLU went into court and said, 'No, judge. You can't allow this land transfer.' And the judge has stopped the land transfer and said that the veterans' memorial, the cross, has to be destroyed," he explains. "It can't be given back to the veterans, and while it's on appeal right now it's actually covered in a plywood box so that no one is offended by the veterans' memorial."
The Supreme Court's decision will impact most government memorials and parks. "And the idea that we would begin tearing down, or bulldozing, or dismantling these memorials would be a disgrace," he adds, "and it's a disgrace right now that this memorial, which has been there for 75 years, is covered in a plywood box."

Shackleford represents 4,000,000 veterans in the case, which will be argued later this year.

So once again the ACLU bullies and bends the law at a whim and the ignorant courts obey. It was an agreement between congress and the Veterans. They had no right to interfere, but of course, if it has to do with God they get enraged and wage a battle.

Crosses are in every single military cemetery as well as civilian ones. If they don't like it, then they don't have to look at it. The ACLU refuses to acknowledge that they are some people who value the symbol of the cross, especially war veterans. It is a sign of respect, hope and most importantly, sacrifice. A concept that is absolutely foreign to them.

Dems likely to ignore amnesty issue for now

I think I might have just gotten a little carried away in my shopping yesterday! Ooops! Good thing it is my Avon spending funds that I used otherwise hubby would be giving me an ear-full. I bought, from my sister's web site, Third Day's CD "Revelations" bought the most recent DVD of the Love Comes Softly series, I have to have them all you know, duh... Then went to the Lifeway Christian store bought a T-shirt and a devotional for a friend!! To some that is not much, but for me, umm..yeah.

MOVING ON TO MY POST: Took a bit of time, huh?

Former Congressman Tom Tancredo does not think it is wise for Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid to push the idea of passing an amnesty bill this year.

Reid, (D-Nevada) recently told a group of Hispanic leaders that he wants to take up "comprehensive immigration reform" this year.

Congress soundly rejected an amnesty proposal in 2007. But the Majority Leader told his audience that immigration reform is going to happen by the end of this Congressional session, which ends in 2010, but added that he wants to get it accomplished this year if possible.

However, former Tancredo (R-Colorado) does not believe the Obama administration really wants to deal with the issue right now.

"It is my observation -- gut-level feeling really -- that they do not want to bring this up right away because the issue will revolve around something called jobs. Now how do you justify giving 20 million people who are here illegally legal access to the jobs either that they have or will take, at the same time that you're pushing ten percent unemployment?" he asks. "So I just don't think they want to have that fight right now, but they may be forced into it."

Tancredo says in the meantime the Democrats are attempting a balancing act by saying they want to get an amnesty passed immediately, but then never quite getting around to it.

And the only thing I can comment on this is, YA THINK??!! There are many hard-working Americans out of work so, yeah it would be a grave mistake to pass amnesty laws. And furthermore, kick the illegals out of our country!! If they want to live and work here, they need to go through the proper channels, period.

I hope everyone that visits my blog today has a fantastic and blessed weekend! May God place you under His sovereign protection.

Obama extols Koran; press missed it

A Christian writer says President Obama's recent speech in Cairo praising Islam is further evidence the American president has a "low view" of biblical Christianity.

Robert Knight, a senior writer for Coral Ridge Ministries, has written a column titled "Obama Nation's Low View of Christianity." Knight says he wrote the column as a service to everyone who wants thorough documentation -- not just bits and pieces -- of President Obama's statements distorting Christianity.

Knight argues that the most disturbing thing President Obama said in his Cairo speech was that the Middle East was the first place where Islam was "revealed."

"That word 'revealed' is very important," Knight explains. "It means an unveiling, and it means a divinely-inspired unveiling -- which would indicate that the president is saying the Koran is a holy book. In fact, he referred to the Koran several times as the 'Holy Koran.'"

Such a perspective from their elected chief executive, says Knight, should concern Bible-believing Christians.

"If you're a Christian, you don't regard the Koran as a holy book of any sort," he states. "You regard it as springing out of the Old Testament, because it incorporates a lot of the Torah, as does the Christian Bible -- but then it goes off into a false religion."

Knight says to call the Koran a holy book goes beyond diplomacy, yet Obama understood the significance of what he was saying because "of all people, he knows the power of words." However, Knight points out that most of the press in the United States missed or ignored the remark.

Hmmm.....and yes I am aware that he was speaking to Muslims but that is no reason to bow down to them, yet again, he is good at groveling at their feet. President Bush never backed down nor denied his Christian faith regardless of where he was.

This president is clueless about what is to be a Christian and about being a leader. He has no idea what he is doing and his lack of experience dealing with other nations is becoming quite apparent among other things.

Jihadist Crashes Memorial

Hat tip to Always on Watch

After watching this video I was absolutely livid. I promise you if I wasn't a Christian woman and 4'11 feet tall. I would have taken that woman down and yanked her and her misguided offspring and hauled their sorry you know whats back into their mini van and sent them on their way.

I wonder what would have happened if they were pulling this little stunt in Saudi Arabia or Pakistan?.

Yet, she felt empowered or compelled to pull over and begin her tirade against the American people who were honoring a fallen soldier, thanks to BHO placating the Muslims, she had no fear of repercussion. And then to scream utter nonsense as well as screaming that Islam was Peace! The soldier was gunned down in cold blood by a MUSLIM!! And she had the audacity to protest??!!! WTH!!

See for yourself how ignorant this woman and her offspring speak.

The King James Bible

I know that I have posted similar things about the KJV compared to the other perverse bibles in the past but I just cannot understand how people can read those so-called bibles when most of them omit the Blood of Christ or the deity of Christ.

I know that my arguments go unheeded people will do what they want regardless. I just find it rather sad that when we are asked to pray the The Lord's Prayer there are so many versions being spewed out it is confusing and incoherent as well as when we do Psam 23. Satan is the father of lies and confusion.

I even heard a Muslim commenting on how we have hundreds of different versions of our bible, while they only have one. Yeah, that was nice to hear.

Please pray about this as I share a few examples:

ARE YOU WASHED IN THE BLOOD OF JESUS?
Other than the KJV no other version has that our sins are washed in the blood.
REVELATION 1:5 Compare them at BibleGateway or your own version.

KING JAMES VERSION: And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood,

NIV:
Grace and peace to you from him who is, and who was, and who is to come, and from the seven spirits[
a] before his throne, 5and from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, the firstborn from the dead, and the ruler of the kings of the earth.

New American Standard Bible:
5and from Jesus Christ, (
A)the faithful witness, the (B)firstborn of the dead, and the (C)ruler of the kings of the earth To Him who (D)loves us and released us from our sins by His blood--

Amplified: And from Jesus Christ the faithful and trustworthy Witness, the Firstborn of the dead [first to be brought back to life] and the Prince (Ruler) of the kings of the earth. To Him Who [a]ever loves us and has [b]once [for all] loosed and freed us from our sins by His own blood

NEXT: THE PERSON OF CHRIST IS omitted from all of these versions. I simplified it for you:
1. New American Standard Bible
2. Revised Standard Version
3. Living New Testament
4. Good News for Modern Man
5. New English Bible
6. Amplified New Testament


John 6:69 -- Christ is omitted in 1, 2, 3, 4, 5.
Acts 9:20 -- Christ is changed to Jesus in 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6.
Acts 15:11 -- Christ is omitted in 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6.

Rev. l:9b -- Christ omitted in 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, (italics in 6).


I would love to share a lot more with you on how a lot of version attack the virgin birth and that Mary is called a "young woman" etc. Or that they claimed Joseph to be Jesus' father. If you want them I will be happy to post them.

LAST ONE: ACTS 8:37 IS COMPLETELY MISSING.

KJV: And Philip said, If thou believest with all thine heart, thou mayest. And he answered and said, I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God.

NIV- missing
NRSV - missing
REB - missing
NWT - Missing
NAB- missing
EST - missing
New Living Translation- missing
The Message - re-written and excludes Acts 8:37

I have a lot more for anyone who is interested in this research.

Please tell me what you think?

Obama declares June 'LGBT Pride Month'

In a presidential proclamation on the White House website, Barack Obama has lauded what he calls "the determination and dedication" of the LGBT movement by proclaiming June as "Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Pride Month."

"The LGBT rights movement has achieved great progress," Obama states in the official proclamation, "but there is more to be done. LGBT youth should feel safe to learn without the fear of harassment, and LGBT families and seniors should be allowed to live their lives with dignity and respect."

The proclamation, released on Monday, credits the LGBT movement with being a factor in more Americans who ascribe to those groups "living their lives openly today than ever before."

The president also takes pride in being the first U.S. chief executive to appoint "openly LGBT" candidates to Senate-confirmed positions in the first 100 days of an administration.

He uses the proclamation to emphasize LGBT-related initiatives that he intends to pursue in the future -- both domestically and internationally.

"I have joined efforts at the United Nations to decriminalize homosexual around the world," he states. "Here at home, I continue to support measures to bring the full spectrum of equal rights to LGBT Americans."

Among those measures he lists "hate crimes" laws, civil unions, discrimination in the workplace, adoption rights, and ending the military's "don't ask, don't tell" policy "in a way that strengthens our Armed Forces and our national security."

Presidential pandering

Pro-family activist says Peter LaBarbera it is sad, but not surprising, that President Obama has chosen to issue a proclamation celebrating homosexuality. The president of Americans for Truth About Homosexuality says Obama is pandering to homosexual political activists.

"Homosexuality is nothing to be proud of -- bottom line," says LaBarbera. "The fact is people have left the lifestyle, people have overcome homosexuality [with God's help] -- I think that's something to be proud of...."

LaBarbera warns of the repercussions of the president's pursuit of expanded rights for those who are confused about their sexual orientation.

"This proclamation talks about the entire radical homosexual agenda that Obama supports -- including homosexualizing the U.S. military [and] federal so-called 'rights' based on homosexuality, which will impinge on the religious freedoms and freedom of conscience of other Americans."

Christians, he believes, must reach out to homosexuals with the message of the gospel.

Read the official White House proclamation:

Well, well, this is not surprising at all. I am, however, appalled, disgusted and wanting to weep for this lost nation. How far it has fallen. The decline is almost complete, or has it reached the precipice? You tell me.

So, basically, BHO virtually ignored or did ignore THE NATIONAL DAY OF PRAYER, but makes the whole month of June, the perversion-deviant month. How nice....NOT

I don't even know if I have the energy to rant and rave over this atrocity or the wickedness that is sitting in the White House. How this must grieve our precious Heavenly Father...

Oh my gosh! Talk about ignorant people!

Okay, so my boss is out of town and I am in the office all alone. When a familiar faces walks in. He is a very tenacious salesman that has been in at least three times trying to sell the doctor office furniture. I told him that she was not interested and then he started on about he was really needing customers, etc. I apologized but told him I couldn't help. A long this conversation he also added that he wished he had a girlfriend or wife. I kind of lifted my eyebrow in wonder and told him, sorry can't help you there either buddy....?

At this time we were having a friendly chat about the economy and how bad it was and that this nation needed to quit outsourcing and start buying locally and so forth. I was agreeing up to this point. When all of a sudden he began a tirade about the Republicans and it was all their fault starting with President Nixon up to George W. Bush. I said, "Wait a minute, I am Republican." I got a smirk with that remark. And things got ugly! Now remember I am alone in this office with this strange individual.

So, then I began to defend these great men and he couldn't speak fast enough on how great Jimmy Carter was in office, that Hilary Clinton was some kind of heroine and Bill Clinton was a hero?!! What the heck?! And McCain was some kind of villain and forget about George W. Bush, the venom was tangible.

So, he got on about being a member of Church of Christ and that they are all proud Democrats and that Arkansas is a Democratic state. And I said, "wait a minute, you are very wrong and misinformed, on the last two elections Arkansas voted Republican." He denied this and kept on and on that I was wrong. From 1972 to 2008 Arkansas voters, including the electoral votes, all voted Republican seven times and only three Democratic, which was '76, '92 and '96. The guy needs to read up on his history.

It gets better folks, or maybe not. I found this so comical. I explained that most of us in Arkansas and part of the south were conservative Republicans. He looked at me and said, "there is no such thing as a conservative Republican and the word conservative does not exist; it is not even in the dictionary!!" I burst out laughing, politely though, and said, "Yes, it is and gave him the definition." He said, "No, you are wrong get a dictionary and you will see." Well, duh...I did and proved him wrong and he denied it was in there!!! Oh my goodness!!

So he asked me what a conservative was, again. So, again, I explained to him about traditional values etc. He said, "no, no that is a Democrat!" Umm...no.

At this point in time, I was exhausted with the ignorance of this man. I said, "look this conversation is pointless, we have two very separate points view and we are never going to agree." He got angry, very angry actually, and grabbed his business card off my desk and said a pretty bad thing about the office and then babbled something as he walked out the door.

I called my sister immediately and told her how shocked I was to encounter someone who was absolutely clueless and ignorant about politics and the party he so vehemently supports. Granted I deal with liberals on the net, but this was my first encounter with someone in person, whew! I cannot believe how ignorant some people are!!

Wow....I am still shaking my head
