As I’m decorating my tree last night, call it melancholia, call it too many candy canes, but I started wondering if this would be the last Christmas tree I ever decorate.
There are so many Christian leaders out there who believe we’re living in the last days, and given the news for the last week, I tend to agree.
Right now there are Christian churches being closed and destroyed all over the Middle East, some are being used as prisons by Muslims. And we have the pope praying toward Mecca and declaring Muslims are not violent, while the ranks of ISIS swell.
Obama reneged on his promise of aid to the U.N. for Syrian and Iraqi Christian refugees. He says he needs the money to fight Ebola?! Meanwhile ISIS is trafficking in human organs harvested from bodies of Christian captives alive or dead.
The other day some Muslim cleric led the opening prayer in the House Of Representatives. Conservatives were outraged! Outraged I tell you! I bet they were seething as there heads were bowed in prayer. Why did we elect them again??
Did you hear about the student that invited two of her friends to a Creation Seminar?? She was called to the principal’s office four times and forced to sign a confession for what she had done. A confession!!! Someone should check for a rack in the basement of that school. Nothing to do with Islam I know, it just made me mad.
Oh, and I love this story: a police officer in Tenn. pulled over a car full of Saudis because it had paper tags and a registration violation. The passengers told the officer that there was a dead infant in the trunk and they were on their way to a mosque in Franklin to prepare it for burial. The officer never checked the trunk, never asked for names and never checked i.d. Oh, and there is no mosque in Franklin. All because he didn’t want to offend. As it turns out the men had a permit but couldn’t relay that to the officer because their English was so bad. I’m not sure how they managed to convey the rest of the information…
I know by now everyone has heard of the four Christian children, all under fifteen years old who were given the choice of converting to Islam or dying. They chose Christ and were beheaded. But have we heard that ISIS has been murdering children all along? Not only murdering, because we all know murder just isn’t fulfilling enough for these animals, so they slit the throats of babies, sell baby girls as sex slaves and cut children in half for fun.
Hillary says we should empathize with our enemies. It scares me that she may know how to empathize with these people.
Jackie Speier, a Democrat congresswoman from California (what a surprise) says that the CIA should apologize to the terrorists for torturing them. ISIS is killing faster than the statisticians can count and she wants us to apologize? I think we should give them a raise and Carte Blanche on the interrogation. Hey Obama, that’s who I am!
An Iranian commander now says his forces have plans to attack America from within. Reports do indicate that Hezbollah is here and has mapped out targets. ISIS is actively recruiting in the U.S. Does anyone find it just a little odd that the left now finds torture unacceptable? Now when we need it most!
The Obama administration refuses to designate the Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist organization. The White House stated that it would respond to any petition that reached 100,000. Over 213,000 signed a We The People petition in just one month, guess what happened? Obama named Fatima Noor assistant director for U.S. citizenship and immigration in the Dept. of Homeland Security and she ain’t Irish!!
Franklin Graham said, this is Islam. It has not been hijacked by radicals. This is the faith, this is the religion. It is what it is. It speaks for itself….it is the same. It is a religion of war.
When an 8th. grader can be body slammed to the ground by police and held in detention overnight for wearing a rosary, which by the way he had to ask permission to do, but a Muslim can wear a full hijab to testify in court without removing the face covering, I’d say we were well on our way to losing our identity as Americans.
