Rev. Al Forced To Perform KKK Wedding! Mohammad’s Sex Slaves Musical Hits Broadway!

Donald & Evelyn Knapp

Donald & Evelyn Knapp

Where have all the courageous free thinkers gone. Are we really going to surrender to the ass-backwards world of blatant Progressive hypocrisy?

Has anybody besides me wondered how it is that the 1st Amendment Rights of 5 Christian pastors can be so clearly violated by demanding they turn over their sermons to the State by the Progressive lesbian mayor of Houston as part of HERO (Houston Equal Rights Ordinance)…without ordering Imams to do the same even though homosexuality is punishable by death under Islamic Law?

And what about the white Christian ministers in Coeur d’ Alene Idaho, Donald and Evelyn Knapp, who were just ordered to perform a same-sex-marriage or go to jail…in keeping with the city’s “non-discrimination” ordinance? What if the KKK Imperial Grand Wizard and his Ayran Nation bride were to decide they’d like to get hitched in a Southern Black Baptist Church in downtown Selma…and demand that Reverend Al Sharpton to do the honors…hmmm?

And now the self-loathing “I Am Gaza”, Judeo-Christian-Israel-Hating, “Christ in Urine”-wasn’t bad enough-crowd have given us a new Broadway show…The Death of Klinghoffer…an Opera glorifying terrorism at the expense of the Leon Klinghoffer family! All I could do was shake my head as I listened to the Progressive Geraldo Rivera lecture former NY Governor David Patterson who happened to be one of the show’s protestors. “What’s the matter Governor, do you have a problem with the artist’s right to free speech?” Fair enough Geraldo, I’ve just written a wonderful opera my self called The Barbary Butcher of Seville about a conflicted transvestite jihadist who falls in love with Mayor Bloomberg. What say you now my Progressive friend?

If “Man’s Best Friend” were susceptible to Progressivism, the Bug Shops would be booming in Caninevilles across America! Fidos, Spots and Scooby Doos would form endless tail-wagging lines around every bug store in the country…to buy fleas! But they have more sense than we do, which is why most dogs will only relieve themselves at fire hydrants when there are no Progressives in range! :-)

When are the good Americans going to finally connect the dots? Christians have become the yellow coat-sleeve-stars of the 21st century! We have become Public Enemy #1 to the Progressive State of America because our faith is incompatible with their anything goes answer to everything!

Progressives should change their name to reflect the reality of all they touch, “This Does Not Work!” But instead they seduce the mind with sweet-smelling names like The Affordable Care Act, The SAFE Act, HOPE, Social Justice, Smart Growth, Sustainability, Common Core and CAIR when what they really mean to say is “We’re going to steal your country right out from under you and you will not recognize her by the time we’re done having our way with her!”

THIS IS WHY NOBODY WILL BUY THEIR BOOKS! Just ask Hilary! And is there anything on earth half as Hil-ary-ous as watching the panicked stampede of Democrats scrambling to distance themselves from the Progressive Poison they made us all drink in the first place…as the same Main Stream Media frauds that have carried Obama on their shoulders since ’08 are now reporting on him as if they’ve only just been introduced? Priceless!

In fact the only thing they’ve been able to point to and take credit for is the Stock Market! Think of a brain-dead coma patient attached to life support. We’re thinking, hey this is great, not realizing we’re on the hook for the $200 Billion per quarter the Merry Banksters are pumping into the patient to keep it alive! What happens when they finally pull the plug? Remember, “This-Does-Not-Work!”

So another day, another stoning, another honor-killing, another beheading, another act of terror by Islamic terrorists…just another day in Progressive World! It makes perfect sense really, a stock market that has nothing to do with true value, and a global epidemic of Islamic savagery that has nothing to do with Islam!

Godfather Politics asks “Where are the men and women who can stop Obama?” in response to whistle blowers having exposed his plan to open the illegal floodgates to as many as 30 Million foreign “invaders” after the mid-term elections…without Congress and against the will of the American People. That’s a darn good question, because this would be a treasonous Act of War!

In the meantime, please let the Grand Wizard know that my wife is a wedding photographer. And if anyone knows anyone with money who doesn’t mind becoming a target of the IRS and ISIS, please have them get in touch with me to discuss the funding of my new opera! :-)

Two More Years!

How did we expose ourselves to this?

How did we expose ourselves to this?

The biggest liar in the room is the person who’s “never lied.” We’ve ALL lied about one thing or another over the course of our mortal existences. We’ve even lied to ourselves! In fact many of us have had the uncomfortable experience of lying to protect the original lie. I use the word uncomfortable because the subsequent lies are always a more conscious event than the original, so we’re that much more aware we’re doing something morally wrong. The very best of us are flawed I’m afraid…it’s, as they say, “part of being human”. It’s also where the saying “live and learn” and words like “redemption” come from.

My favorite Columnist, New York Post’s Michael Goodwin writes in his Sunday piece A Toxic President,

Credibility is like a reservoir or a bank account. You make deposits in good times so you can make withdrawals when you need them.

Obama never made the deposits. It’s been all downhill since Day One. He blames others for failures, and when cornered or ambitious, reaches for a lie. Routinely.”

Not exactly the ideal character reference, I’m thinking! And this is the President…the top dog…the main honcho…the big cheese! But there’s good news and bad news. The good news is, everybody knows. We Tea Party Conservatives have known from Day One. The rest of the Republicans figured it out shortly thereafter. Michael Goodwin, a life-long Democrat, has been on to him for some time. Democrat candidates realize they can’t afford to be seen with him, and those who don’t know any better lose half their Democratic audience and likely voters when he shows his face! The bad news is… everybody knows!

“Everybody knows” in the political world translates to “weakness” cubed…squared…to the tenth power!! What ally in their right mind would place a “smidgeon” of trust in the man who looked directly into the cameras and denied the “smidgeon” of corruption from the very epicenter-vortex of over two dozen major corruption scandals…and counting! And our enemies? They are circling us and the dissed friends who once relied on us like a pack of wolves who haven’t had a good meal for 238 years…

But it’s even worse than that I’m afraid. Goodwin’s use of the word “Toxic” is most appropriate. Webster defines “Toxic” as poison! Think about the havoc a tiny splinter can wreak on a finger or hand left undetected for a couple of days. Obama is embedded in the very brain of the body politic of America for the next two years, two months and eleven days!

Take a long hard look at the face in the picture above and imagine you are the desperate refugee relying on “Humanitarian Aid” from him…or the parents of one of the 3,400 troops he’s just dispatched to the Ebola Hot Zone with very little training and even less protection! And here we are after 240 years facing the greatest Constitutional crisis in our nation’s history, literally on the verge of flat-lining after 6 years of exposure to the deadly Obama virus. He’s reduced the fearless roar of a free press to a fawning whisper. He’s purged our military of leaders and replaced them with yes-men. He has divided and separated us from one another. He has ushered in the Age of Tyranny in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho by forcing American clergy to violate their conscience and surrender their religious freedom…or go to jail! This on the heels of the Houston pastors being subpoenaed!

Now think of how the human body responds when threatened by a deadly foreign invader. The same intelligence that created the most effective and efficient natural system of defense to protect the human body from disease is the very same intelligence the Founders credited for devising a governmental immune system designed to protect man from himself!

Its last hope is to fool the healthy cells into thinking that it is one of them…

…while he betrays them by weakening the body’s defenses and clearing the way for the alien invaders.

Oh, what a tangled web we weave…

But the virus is not God! In spite of the most elaborate scheme to pass it’s self off as a normal healthy cell…the body, while slow to respond, cannot be fooled. The body’s complex immune system of antigens, anti-oxidants and white blood cells are fully engaged to repel the foreign invader…

Two weeks and counting! At the end of the day, the ultimate question is this; does the patient have the will to live? Is the patient willing to do some serious soul-searching, reexamine their life and make some healthy changes? It’s not enough to walk out on the virus in Maryland if we don’t go back to our homes and ask ourselves how we made the disastrous mistake that allowed A Toxic President into our lives in the first place!

Can you imagine how your life would be if the cellular citizens of your body behaved as the citizens of our country? How would it be if the red blood cells resented the white blood cells and the tendons hated the bones and the muscles wanted to be fed without working and none of them trusted the brain? You would die!

So it is with us. We are so much more than left, right, liberal, conservative, republican, democrat, white or black. We are Americans endowed by our creator with inalienable rights…and purpose! Isn’t it about time we take the cure and learn to live again?

The Sunday Morning Tune-up ~ October 19, 2014



“Every true value, such as the beauty of nature or of a masterpiece of art like Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony, or the moral light of a generous act of forgiveness, or of an immovable fidelity, all these values that speak to us of God and touch our hearts, draw our spirit towards the true world of God, lead us before the face of God, and thanks to them, the barriers of pride, egotism, and self-assertion, which isolate us and make us look upon our fellow-men from the outside as adversaries and competitors, fall away.”       ~ Dietrich Von Hildebrand, Liturgy and Personality 1943

It’s been quite a while since I’ve enjoyed a book so well written about a man who so needs to be known by us all. I’m reading The Soul of a Lion, Dietrich Von Hildebrand by his wife Alice Von Hildebrand, herself an amazing soul. I picked up the book after being completely captivated by her in an interview someone sent me not too long ago. There were two Lions of faith who stood up while most everyone else sat in place during the rise and reign of Adolf Hitler; Dietrich Von Hildebrand whose fierce strength of conviction and faith made him a #1 target of the Reich, and Dietrich Bonhoeffer whose unflinching courage and loyalty to God cost him his own life.

This past week there was a story out of Houston that brought Von Hildebrand front and center to my mind. The City of Houston actually subpoenaed six local pastors demanding they turn over their sermons for inspection! It matters not that following public outcry the subpoenas were rescinded. The fact is that this shocking incident is by no means an isolated event. Rather, it is the latest chapter in the book of Good and Evil right here in America where more and more people of faith are finding themselves targets in the ever growing shadow of abusive government…in the very same year the Governor of New York told us we were not welcome in his state! Good Sunday Morning Dear Friend!

The Soul of a Lion

I was gently called to task yesterday by a very sweet person who chided me for inviting her to start her day with the “inflammatory” headline America’s Most Deadly Virus ~ Affirmative Action! “That’s not to say that those relentlessly unfair, insane, dispiriting things don’t exist, but to instead choose to spread the radiance of consciously loving, peace filled, forgiveness based thoughts rather than spread the ripple effect of darkness. Just like the messages of JC and so many other “masters”.” is part of what she offered.

Interestingly, her words came across as more spirit of the lamb as if love is somehow confined to the soft and kind radiance of peace filled bubbles…you know, like the sweet mommie bear when her cubs are threatened. I can so feel the smile on the faces of my reader-friends in the Liberty Movement. We’ve been encouraged to sit down so many times by so many friends, we count chairs instead of sheep to fall asleep at night! Would that we could…standing gets very tiring…especially so, when doing it alone.

In the very same week with all eyes on Ebola, there was fascinating news out of Rome! Very similar to the back-tracking in Houston, there was some serious back-tracking in the Synod of Bishops! After telegraphing a seismic shift in Church posture regarding homosexuality and a relaxing of the requirements for receiving Holy Communion, the forces of “hostile rigidity” and “destructive goody-goodness” managed to carry the day!

“Francis’ gesture, and his words inside the synod hall chastising bishops who were overly wed to doctrine and were guided by “hostile rigidity,” as well as those bishops who showed a “destructive goody-goodiness,” indicated that he was well aware of the divisions the debate had sparked. His speech received a four-minute standing ovation, participants said.”

You see that’s the problem with us inflammatory trouble-makers! Whether it’s the Constitution or the Bible…we’re just too damn “overly wed to doctrine” for our own good! If only we’d just sit down like everybody else and be nice, everything would be so much…nicer. But it’s the lion in us that is called to protect the lambs among us!

The fact is that in the middle of the greatest storm of our lives, nice people drown. They drown because they stay below deck where they think they will be safe. They fail to recognize the Grace of God calling them above deck because they lived their lives trading courage for conformity and salvation for submission without asking “Is it right or is it wrong? Is it true or is it false? Is it pleasing to God?” ~ The Von Hildebrand norm.

“Aye, it was a salty, savage, scurvy sea that nearly got the better of me…” I leave you with another nautical interpretation a la Barnhardt:

And there arose a great storm of wind, and the waves beat into the ship, so that the ship was filled. And He was in the hinder part of the ship, sleeping upon a pillow; and they awake Him, and say to him: Master, doth it not concern thee that we perish? And rising up, He rebuked the wind, and said to the sea: Peace, be still. And the wind ceased: and there was made a great calm. And He said to them: Why are you fearful? have you not faith yet? And they feared exceedingly: and they said one to another: Who is this (thinkest thou) that both wind and sea obey Him?  Mark 4: 37-40

A friend sent me an email the other day with the following line, elegantly articulating the current Synod disaster: “The apostles are, as usual, showing off as the waves smash around; we pray for them and they remain despite their sometimes startlingly sub-average intelligence – the thread that binds us to the Master sleeping under the poop…. To Him be all glory.” The Poop is the raised deck or cabin in the stern (the hinder part) of a boat or ship.  That is where Our Lord was having His little snooze.  This is, it is ever-more difficult to deny, the worst tempest to ever toss the Barque of Peter.  The past heresies, especially those in the first thousand years of the Church, including Arianism, Donatism, Manichaeism, etc., were all – I can’t believe I’m typing this – SUBTLE compared to what is going on now.  What is going on now is new territory – the denial of the NATURAL LAW, which by definition human beings can easily know and understand even OUTSIDE THE CHURCH.  All human cultures know and understand marriage.  All human cultures know that sodomy is wrong.  All human beings, including those who NEVER knew or know the Church will be judged on the Natural Law.  The pre-Columbian Amazon Basin dweller was/will be judged on the sin of Sodomy, because sodomy is known to every human being as grave sin through the Natural Law. But, we must trust Our Lord, even though it seems that He is having a nap while this all goes on.  How can we be surprised by this?  How can our faith be shaken when there have been countless prophecies and apparitions of Our Lady warning of exactly these events, as it is now crystal clear? Cardinal against Cardinal and bishop against bishop, mass apostasy, confusion about who actually is the pope, a “destroyer pope”, and on and on. La Salette, Akita, Fatima, St. Francis….  And, as I and many others have said over and over again, how could we POSSIBLY expect God to continue to bless a culture that is the largest cult of child sacrifice, sodomy and theft ever seen in human history?  How could we expect God to turn a blind eye to the sacrilege and heresy that is endemic to almost every Novus Ordo Mass offered on the planet for the last 46 years – while the entire Church sat in the silence of complicity, more concerned with worldly approval than the Sacred, Wounded Heart of Our Blessed Lord, and His Mother? So, yes, He is sleeping under the poop as the storm rages, as my friend put it, but we must remember His admonition: Why are you fearful? have you not faith yet? He will rise up, and He will say, “Peace, be still.”  And the Barque of Peter will be saved from these devils, and it will lower its nets and bring in a great harvest of souls.  We know this.  We CANNOT doubt this.  So, while I, in my weakness, like everyone else, keep thinking, “Please wake up, please wake up, we’re dying, we’re dying”, I am just going to go back to the poop deck and kneel down next to Him, stare at His Holy Face and watch Him sleep until He sees fit to wake up.  And if I do that, I know that I will be totally and completely safe. See you on the poop deck!

America’s Most Deadly Virus ~ Affirmative Action!

"Where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character."

“Where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.”

I once asked a well-known civil rights attorney friend of mine to explain the rationale behind the famous social engineering tool known as Affirmative Action. He explained that it was the only way to “level a playing field” that had been so unfairly skewed in favor of some while discriminatorily disadvantaging others for so many years. Fair enough, I thought to myself. But if fairness was the true metric, wouldn’t fairness require the engineers to own the consequences of their Solution to a Social Problem?

Think of the people behind the major headline incidents that have captured public attention and impacted our nation over the past six years;

  • The election of Barack Obama as President.
  • The appointment of Eric Holder as Attorney General.
  • The appointment of Kathleen Sebelius as Health & Human Services Secretary.
  • The appointment of Julia Pierson as Director of the Secret Service.
  • The hiring of the female Secret Service agent overpowered by Omar Gonzales.
  • The appointment of Dr. Tom Frieden as Director of the Center for Disease Control.

So after 50 years of Affirmative Action, isn’t it fair to ask just how Affirmative Action has benefited the society it was meant to serve? I would say that history has already answered that for us, but let’s review. Obama proved that leadership has little to do with the color of ones skin as Martin Luther King wisely observed. Leadership has everything to do with the content of ones character, which being sound attracts people like bees to honey and inspires them to follow! And as the fish rots…Eric Holder actually removed the blindfold from Lady Justice and turned our Justice Department into his own personal tool of retribution. Kathleen Sebelius was “in charge” of the most disastrous roll-out of a government program in American history…and its still a mess! Julia Pierson allowed chaos and demoralization to reign in an organization where order and discipline are vital! She is, or should have been accountable for there being a female agent who was about as qualified to protect the President as I am to be one! And Tom Frieden??? Let’s just say…you can hear the germs laughing. The American People…not so much! This my friends is the disastrous exponential domino effect of Affirmative Action…the ultimate deadly virus!

Once upon a time, when we followed the ideas of Newton and respected the laws of Nature and possessed the healthy fear of God, there was predictable order in the world. This has all changed. Those who have assumed power see themselves as being above these laws! Worse than that, they also see themselves above the consequences and accountability for their actions…and their own laws! This is why they intimidate and seek to silence the pastors for the very same reason the pastors were the most outspoken enemies of King George! They mean to replace God as the one and only authority we pray to for “our daily bread.”

Think of the logic…every single election, appointment and hire listed above has been made on the basis of race, gender and political ideology at the expense of qualification, character and integrity! Why? Because their interest in competence and effectiveness is 100% subordinate to the willingness to obey. And people of sound character and integrity are very poor at obeying anyone who would require them to violate their own conscience!

This is the Progressive’s World in a literal “nutshell”! They build their Utopia through Affirmative Action and add the razor wire of Political Correctness to fence it all in! Where nothing is real, as John Lennon sang. People don’t get fired here because nothing gets broken…that’s just our own misinterpretation of what works you see! Playing God is so much fun…until you have to arm wrestle with the real one! :-)

The Obama Administration’s Response to Ebola ~ Incompetence or Act of War?

The "Invited" Weapon of Mass Destruction?

An Agent of Fundamental Transformation?

I had an IVY-Leaguer (the standard term for brain-washed know-it-all) say to me straight-faced the other day that America is a bigger threat to the world than ISIS!! Think about the implications of that for one pain-filled moment and allow it to sink in. If a young American Jew raised on American soil can feel empathy for ISIS and animosity for his own country, how hard will it be for our enemy to pluck all the future Jihadists they will ever need from the rest of the world?

In 1941 America went to war against two enemies; the Japanese in the Pacific, and the Germans in Europe. Neither enemy ever reached the American mainland! In 2014 America is at war with two enemies again; with ISIS in the Middle East, and Ebola in Africa. Both enemies have established positions on the mainland soil of America!

Think about how this happened! Imagine a college kid in 1941 feeling anything remotely akin to sympathy or empathy for Japan or Germany. Now imagine FDR ordering our troops to treat copies of Mein Kampf with respect while depriving them of Bibles and the ability to return fire. This is exactly what our troops serving under Obama are dealing with today! We had Muslims dancing for joy in the streets of Paterson NJ as terrified Americans leapt 100 floors to their deaths when the Twin Towers fell! And today we have US Marines rotting in Leavenworth for Political Correctness violations??? Today we have ISIS “advancing” because today we have a dangerously misguided and misinformed public led by deception…today we have the undisclosed findings of the treasonous Bergdahl trade…today we have the same Susan Rice who told us Benghazi was about a video, telling us Turkey is our friend…today Baghdad is about to fall…because today we have “coalitions” that don’t exist and “protocols” that were never written…because today, my fellow freaked-out Americans, we have Obama!

And speaking of “protocols”…So what about the Ebola Front? After being fed lie after repeated lie from the White House and the CDC on Ebola as stunned Americans, and particularly Iraq War Veterans watch ISIS gain more and more precious ground in Iraq…on the heels of Benghazi and the hit on Navy Seal Team Six because of the insane conditions mentioned above; we have no choice but to contemplate the “unthinkable”. Knowing this same White House has used the IRS to attack, intimidate, and silence Conservative, Christian, and Veterans groups, prosecute journalists for doing their jobs, trample our Constitution, and spy on law-abiding Americans…it would be foolish for us not to consider their handling of Ebola as a possible act of war against the people of America! Obama has taken us from “Unlikely” Ebola in America to flying the Ebola Virus around America in less than one week! For us to not consider this an act of war would be tantamount to following their dereliction with an even more tragic dereliction of our own!

How much abuse are Americans willing to take before we stand up to our abusers? How long will we tolerate the disrespect and mistreatment of our active troops and veterans? How long will we allow them to turn our own children against us? How long will we continue to take what precious freedoms we have left for granted? How long will we continue to swallow their lies where no less than our lives and the lives of our families are at stake? How long before Ebola mutates into the Black Plague of Martial Law…on the eve of what is shaping up to be their Mid-Term Massacre? Is it possible to be that addicted to power?

Both Roger Cohen & Stephen Hayes Nail it Without Hitting IT!!!!

"In the unlikely event that someone with Ebola does reach our shores, we’ve taken new measures so that we’re prepared here at home. "

“In the unlikely event that someone with Ebola does reach our shores, we’ve taken new measures so that we’re prepared here at home.” ~ President Pink Elephant

I have a real treat…actually twin treats for you this morning. Two highly respected men of letters, one from the left and one from the right, have both written masterfully about a floundering America as if they were standing side by side staring at the same canvas in the Museum of Lost Civilizations!

Roger Cohen’s The Great Unraveling, followed by Stephen Hayes’ Failure Upon Failure, are two brilliantly written compositions from opposite ends of the political alley that say plenty while revealing nothing new! In other words, tell us something we don’t already know! Please!!

Mr. Hayes does a wonderful job of describing the complete and total failure that is Obama… “As we approach the sixth anniversary of his election, the Obama presidency is in tatters. Obama’s policies, foreign and domestic, are widely seen as failed or failing. His approval rating is near its lowest point. Obama’s base of support is loyal and fierce and shrinking. Much of the country sees him as incompetent or untrustworthy, and government, far from being “cool,” is a joke on good days and a threat on bad ones.”…while dancing around the failure of the system that allowed either a most incompetent man or a most nefarious man into the most powerful office in the world to begin with!

And on the other hand we have Mr. Cohen who actually writes “How could this happen?” in the opening sentence of his… The nation’s leader mockingly derided his own “wan, diffident, professorial” approach to the world, implying he was none of these things, even if he gave that appearance. He set objectives for which he had no plan. He made commitments he did not keep. In the way of the world these things were noticed. Enemies probed. Allies were neglected, until they were needed to face the decapitators who talked of a Caliphate and called themselves a state. Words like “strength” and “resolve” returned to the leader’s vocabulary. But the world was already adrift, unmoored by the retreat of its ordering power. The rule book had been ripped up.”…never answering the question, or the much greater sin…never taking ownership for his part in ushering in the very cause of the “unraveling” he took the time to write about in the first place!

It’s as if William Tell lined up on one side of the apple, and Robin Hood lined up on the other side. They both missed the apple and hit themselves in the crossfire leaving Obama unscathed…as usual! And that’s because there is no possible way to answer Cohen’s opening question without going directly to the issue of Obama’s illegitimacy and the culpability of those who “installed” him! Nobody, it seems, has the cajones to get anywhere near that pink elephant…much less draw a bead on it! Fine…cower at your own peril, oh courageous men of letters that you are. But ask yourselves this. Have you thought this through to the other side, after the leviathan collapses under the weight of its own lies and corruption? How will you explain yourselves to those of us left standing?

Americans know they’re being lied to for the very same reason MSNBC is in a ratings spiral. They’re smart enough to realize that “Leaning Forward” is really propaganda code for “FALLING BACKWARDS”…without you telling them!

They know they can’t trust a President whose EPA and IRS have the only lost email epidemic known to man! They know they can’t trust a President who promises to dismantle a savage threat by cutting and running from it!

They know they can’t trust a President who deliberately covered up the truth about Benghazi and the Secret Service breach in Columbia to protect his 2012 re-election bid, and now plots to deceive the American people yet again to protect the Mid-Terms by delaying the result of the treasonous Bergdahl Scandal investigations until after the elections!

And they sure as hell know they can’t trust the man whose very name has become synonymous with scandal and deception to protect them from the same deadly outbreak that he assured them was “unlikely” to begin with! Gosh…“ To Protect and Defend” sure don’t seem to mean what it once did, now does it?

Fact is, when journalists avoid the Truth as well as the politicians hide it, the rest of us aren’t very far from losing the greatest Republic the world has ever known! Chew on that this Thanksgiving Dear Friend!

The Sunday Morning Tune-up ~ October 12, 2014

At the end of the day...

At the end of the day…

As I’ve mentioned in previous writings, I recently decided to read the Bible as part of my overall strategy in dealing with some health issues. When I got to the Book of Job and especially Job 19, I actually thought to myself, “WOW! I can so relate to him!” But the amazing thing is that I couldn’t have said that 10 years, or even 6 years ago! For those of you unfamiliar, Job is one of the many stories in the Bible where man is tested by God. But, with the exception of Abraham’s test, I dare say Job’s strength of faith and conviction were tested beyond the powers of imagination!

Most of us who have been raised in the church or Church are no strangers to the concept of being tested by God. But until January 1st 2009, it was more of a “Just Say No” kind of test. You know; Sunday church service with the family or Yankee game with the friends. I know that every single one of my true God-fearing friends in the Liberty Movement will agree 100% when I say the Book of Job became much, much more than a story for us on January 1st 2009! It became our story! Good Sunday Morning Dear Friend!

“Those I love have turned against me.”

Four or five years ago I had a local acquaintance inform me that he would have no more to do with me because “my politics were askew.” I can’t say I was hurt because he wasn’t much of a friend. And I can’t say I was surprised because I knew his politics. The truth of the matter is I was amused…

Life in America to me was no different than High School up until 2009. There were good people, bad people, cool people, nerdy people, smart people and stupid people. There were tests, there was judgment, there was politics. If you worked hard you got ahead. If you goofed off you got left behind. And if you broke the rules you went to the Principal’s office and did time in detention. There was love and romance…there was peace and war!

Wherever you were in the mix, it all made sense then…

The world was right and then it wasn’t for Job, who we read was a solid man of faith and integrity. He understood the world and was successful in it…until North became South and he woke up one day as the one “gone astray” in a world of trespassers with everything stripped away, unaware of the Devil’s bet. The Devil, you see, was granted power by God over all aspects of Job’s life except for Job himself. He turned it all upside down and stripped him of everything but the flesh on his bones and the enamel on his teeth, convinced he could turn Job against God and actually get him to curse God for his suffering…which of course he could not.

It is so clear to see the Devil at play…over all aspects of Job’s life today! He is the wicked sandblaster stripping those of us who refuse to play down to our raw metal. He is Xerxes asking only for the token of “earth and water”…and our bended knee. How much easier our lives could be, if only…Just as Job’s own friends lectured him, “You’ve brought this on yourself!”

It’s hard to see the happy ending we know from the Book of Job, which is exactly the point. It’s about holding gratitude for the very source of all our blessings especially at the times of our greatest sufferings. From here there is a window in the stillness of the letting go which reveals the flimsy veneer of life’s vanity…a complete apparition…as it slips away to reveal…OOPS, giving that away might spoil the cake! Love them back!

Job 19

 Then Job replied:

“How long will you torment me
and crush me with words?
Ten times now you have reproached me;
shamelessly you attack me.
If it is true that I have gone astray,
my error remains my concern alone.
If indeed you would exalt yourselves above me
and use my humiliation against me,
then know that God has wronged me
and drawn his net around me.

“Though I cry, ‘Violence!’ I get no response;
though I call for help, there is no justice.
He has blocked my way so I cannot pass;
he has shrouded my paths in darkness.
He has stripped me of my honor
and removed the crown from my head.
10 He tears me down on every side till I am gone;
he uproots my hope like a tree.
11 His anger burns against me;
he counts me among his enemies.
12 His troops advance in force;
they build a siege ramp against me
and encamp around my tent.

13 “He has alienated my family from me;
my acquaintances are completely estranged from me.
14 My relatives have gone away;
my closest friends have forgotten me.
15 My guests and my female servants count me a foreigner;
they look on me as on a stranger.
16 I summon my servant, but he does not answer,
though I beg him with my own mouth.
17 My breath is offensive to my wife;
I am loathsome to my own family.
18 Even the little boys scorn me;
when I appear, they ridicule me.
19 All my intimate friends detest me;
those I love have turned against me.
20 I am nothing but skin and bones;
I have escaped only by the skin of my teeth.[a]

21 “Have pity on me, my friends, have pity,
for the hand of God has struck me.
22 Why do you pursue me as God does?
Will you never get enough of my flesh?

23 “Oh, that my words were recorded,
that they were written on a scroll,
24 that they were inscribed with an iron tool on[b] lead,
or engraved in rock forever!
25 I know that my redeemer[c] lives,
and that in the end he will stand on the earth.[d]
26 And after my skin has been destroyed,
yet[e] in[f] my flesh I will see God;
27 I myself will see him
with my own eyes—I, and not another.
How my heart yearns within me!

28 “If you say, ‘How we will hound him,
since the root of the trouble lies in him,[g]
29 you should fear the sword yourselves;
for wrath will bring punishment by the sword,
and then you will know that there is judgment.[h]
