Just Don’t Mention the J-Word

Now if he had mentioned Mohammad:

A North Carolina pastor was relieved of his duties as an honorary chaplain of the state house of representatives after he closed a prayer by invoking the name of Jesus.

“I got fired,” said Ron Baity, pastor of Berean Baptist Church in Winston-Salem. He had been invited to lead prayer for an entire week but his tenure was cut short when he refused to remove the name Jesus from his invocation.

Baity’s troubles began during the week of May 31. He said a House clerk asked to see his prayer. The invocation including prayers for our military, state lawmakers and a petition to God asking him to bless North Carolina.”

“When I handed it to the lady, I watched her eyes and they immediately went right to the bottom of the page and the word Jesus,” he told FOX News Radio. “She said ‘We would prefer that you not use the name Jesus. We have some people here that can be offended.’”

When Baity protested, she brought the matter to the attention of House Speaker Joe Hackney – a Democrat.


The Teachings of Christianity

“He led me to the Word of God with an inspiring story of a homeless African-American urban activist named Jesus Christ, who advocated for higher taxes, reparations, and government redistribution of earthly belongings. Like many inner-city Blacks, he was born in the slums to a teenage mother and had never seen his real father. Despite being oppressed and discriminated against, Christ was helping the poor by demanding government handouts. But the White-supremacist government only gave them crack cocaine and infected them with the AIDS virus, which had been invented specifically for that purpose. As Christ was tending to the AIDS victims he himself became infected through needle sharing. Then he tried to find his father, but was constantly subjected to racial profiling, and then was arrested, tortured, and crucified.

How Can We Tell?

There’s just a wonderful post over at Breath of the Beast on our enemies both internal and external.  The whole thing is great – some highlights:

Multiculturalists will ask, “Who are we to pass judgment on another culture?” If the criteria are not obvious enough, I’ll mention a few:

Freedom of speech
Freedom of religion
Freedom of association
Free Enterprise
Legal, social and economic equality for Women

There are more but those will do for a start. If we could just stop pretending that we are all the same and put a real effort into understanding which countries have those attributes and which do not, we could begin to understand who our enemies are and why.

The multicultural, politically correct elite want to prevent that discussion. This is how multiculturalism strikes at the heart of western democracy- it insists that the unqualified, the unwilling and the unready nations should never be identified by those characteristics. As a result, they are afforded the same access, independence and respect as the most culturally advanced.

And

Western Civilization must stop behaving as if we don’t feel entitled to live unless every other culture wants to be like us. We have to understand that life is always and always has been a competition for survival. If we want our children and our values to survive, it is time to act while we are still able to win easily.

Just wonderful stuff – you need to read the whole thing.

Ongoing War Against Christianity in Britain

An interesting quote from the Conservative Party spokesman (who is a Muslim)

Sayeeda Warsi, the Conservative spokesman on community cohesion, was quoted as saying that the report shows “a breathtaking misunderstanding of what it is to be British. These proposals could actually damage cohesion….You don’t build community cohesion by throwing out our history and denying the fundamental contribution Christianity has played and does play to our nation. As a British Muslim I can see that — so why others can’t just staggers me.”

She added: “The thought of Gordon Brown sharing responsibility with me for bringing up my children sends a shiver down my spine. I thought we got rid of communism.”

The war being waged by the quasi-establishment and quasi-government Left in Britain against the nation’s own traditions, values, identity and, perhaps most of all, religion, has been escalated and its battle-lines redefined with a report by a leading Labour Party-aligned think-tank, the Institute for Public Policy Research,
The report proposes Christening services be replaced by “birth ceremonies” in which the parents of children and the State agree to “work in partnership” to raise children
The national flag, the Union Jack, which is made up of the crosses of three Christian Saints, should lose its position.
The report adds: “Any liberal state should recast the civic oaths and national ceremonies, or institutions like Parliament and the monarchy, in a more multi-religious or secular form and make religious education less sectarian.”
