SERMON WORTH READING (Might count as a “Sleep In Pass” on Sunday)

THIS ORTHODOX PRIEST SAYS IT LIKE IT IS

He refers to another group of Orthodox Christians who chose to get Politically Correct but his comments apply to all Christian Denominations in America.

I SAY………GET RID OF THE 16th AMENDMENT AND THERE IS NO NEED FOR POLITICAL CORRECTNESS FROM THE PULPIT

I LIKE THIS PRIEST (He should run for office)

A SERMON WORTH READING

ORTHODOX CHRISTIAN RESPONSIBILITY IN THE PUBLIC ARENA, by Fr John Peck

“First of all, let me begin by saying that it is my duty, as a priest and pastor, to impose moral standards on you. Part of my job and function is to teach Christian mor…

ality and to get us, as a body, to adhere to Christian moral standards –for our own best and for the good of all. So before you come to me with complaints about the separation of Church and state, be aware that I am doing my duty in telling you what the Church, as the Body of Christ, teaches about life and responsibility.”Moral theology in the Orthodox Church in America is pretty loosey-goosey, as is clearly evidenced by the Reflections on Voting for Orthodox Christians article that was posted, at first anonymously, on the OCA website. I have said, and will say here, that a more poorly reasoned collection of moral mish-mush does not yet exist. If you have read it, you can see that what is being said behind the lines is, ‘Things like abortion, euthanasia, human cloning, gay marriage and embryonic stem cell experimentation are wrong, but we don’t like the candidate who stands against these things, and anyway, capital punishment is wrong, and harming the environment is wrong.’ The statement that we are forced to become ‘reluctant republicans’ or ‘reluctant democrats’ betrays the writer’s real concern, which is to look impartial politically. He would have been very welcome by the Soviets in Russia, as a Christian who does nothing about his Christianity…

“The reality of our moral environment is this: who is deciding the significant moral issues of our day? It is, of course, the judiciary. The judiciary is generally appointed, not elected. Judges are currently reigning like sovereign kings over the abortion debate. Judges decide whether or not starving someone to death is murder…or not. Judges are deciding whether or not you will be required to recognize sexual unions between homosexuals as legitimate marriages. They are also deciding whether or not humans can be farmed for research. (Yes, that is what fetal stem cell research is about. Farm humans, destroy them for research, and then farm some more.)

“And who confirms these judges, who we can not vote in or out of office? Of course, our legislators.

“As Christians, we can certainly have opinions about a multitude of public and social issues, but not on moral issues. Christian morality is not some amorphous fog of teaching that makes us a taillight on the automobile of humanity, never quite able to solve moral problems until they are so obvious to all that we can speak with 100% comfort on the political correctness of our teaching. Our teaching is already 100% correct. We must be the headlights of our race. We must illuminate the road before us, watching out for unexpected obstacles to our journey, dangerous twists in the road, and who we may run over in our rush to go faster.

“I am here to tell you that abortion is not morally equivalent to capital punishment. One kills millions of innocents, and scars millions more every year. Just a look at the numbers should, by itself, tell you which of these needs to be acted upon first and foremost. Likewise, euthanasia, gay marriage, fetal stem cell research, and human cloning are not morally equivalent to environmental issues, management vs. labor, or economic issues. These are not negotiable in Christian moral teaching. How dangerous it will be for us to ‘vote our pocketbook,’ when children and elderly are at such risk, and literally being murdered daily.

“The chief moral issues of our day are being decided, and we can elect men who can establish a judiciary who understands this.

“We see the consequences of our failure to speak out with our actions on the public sector. Hundreds of thousands of Christians in Kosovo displaced, persecuted, and with no protection within sight of U.N. Peacekeepers, who do nothing to help, but only watch government sponsored Islamic terrorist gangs destroy their 1000 year old monasteries and churches. Millions of Sudanese Christians –black Christians– murdered, raped or displaced, living in fear of extermination by their own government. Our Secretary of State at the time, himself a minority, called it genocide. Where was the moral indignation over this?

“I was enraged when I read the article in the newspaper about local pastors who want to remain politically neutral, so they don’t lose their IRS non-profit tax exempt status. These ‘shepherds’ refuse to teach their people Christian moral responsibility, in exchange for money. Personally, I hope they take tax exempt status away from us (churches). Oh yes! Then we will ‘beholden’ to no one. These same pastors know full well that one presidential candidate has political rallies during minority church worship services. I don’t see the IRS bothering those churches. This same candidate canceled a church appearance in West Virginia when the pastor informed him that there would be no politicking there. We are buying into this double standard.

“When it comes time for us to participate in our democracy, we must participate. Talk is cheap. Complaining about a less than perfect world is worse than useless. Its sates our desire for action in frustration, and gives us the sense that at least we have vented our exasperation, though truly helpless. When it comes time for us to participate in our democracy, we must participate! We are announcing once and for all that we are children of the Kingdom when we vote. We choose, first and foremost, LIFE and protecting the lives of the innocent. If not we, then who?

“It’s time to be headlights again. If our nation and our government has taken a wrong turn, a turn we know will result in the removal of God’s blessings from our country, we must bring her back. If not now, then when?

“Now we must contend for the soul of our nation. Now we must contend for the Faith, because a faith which does not impose moral values on you is no faith! It is merely a feel-good-about-yourself religion that calms you when excited, gives you impetus for moral indignation, but really requires nothing of you, and therefore can do nothing for you.

“If not we, then who? If not now, then when? If not over this, then what could possibly shake us from self-satisfying lethargy? There is a time for everything, according to the Scriptures. Now it is time for the Lord to act. Now is the time for the Church to act! YOU and I must act. These should all be exactly the same thing. Make sure that they are.”

Remember Rick Santelli ? THE TEA PARTY IS STILL ALIVE

Remember where you were when Rick Santelli sponaneously called out American Conservatives on a live CNBC News Broadcast in 2009.

He called for a new “TEA PARTY” and the subject was REDISTRIBUTION just as it still is three years later.

“Click” bellow and relive the moment.

It feels so………AMERICAN ! ! !

http://www.bing.com/videos/search?q=rick+santelli+tea+party+rant&mid=18ED522084F2F257566A18ED522084F2F257566A&view=detail&FORM=VIRE3

The Tea Party is a little less vocal today but we are still out here and we need to get that silent conservative majority (The 71%) to the polls this fall and from now on.

https://doctorjohnblog.com/2012/08/31/eligible-voters-register-here/

THE ANSWER TO OUR REDISTRIBUTION PROBLEM IS TO CHANGE THE WAY WE FUND GOVERNMENT AND IT’S ALL COMING TO A CLIMAX AT THE RIGHT TIME

SENATE CONTROL EMINENT

This morning Senator Jim DMint, Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich threw their support behind Todd Akin in Missouri’s Senate race.

WITH CLAIRE McCskill’s “RUBBER STAMP FOR OBAMA” voting record this should be the the easiest Senate seat to pick.

We do however, need to get the message out because McCaskill has plenty of funding to muddy the waters.

“AKIN” ACTION ALERT

 

IF YOU FEEL THE VOTES CAST IN MISSOURI’S REPUBLICAN PRIMARY MEAN ANYTHING

1) Donate money at www.akin.org/donate .(Keep trying if the website is overwhelmed and down…even a small donation will help)

2) Get people to sign up on Todd Akin’s web site at www.akin.org

3) Speak out publicly in e-mails and/or calls to the Media and more importantly to the RNC at www.mogop.org and www.gop.org to tell elected officials they are fracturing the party over a verbal mis-step by a good and principled man. If the RNC chooses not to fund Todd Akin’s campaign against Claire McCaskill in Missouri’s Senate race; it falls once again on RNC Leadership.

4) Pass the word to your network that the Republican Party Leadership is trying to overturn the election of an honestly elected candidate; trampling the will of the Missouri electorate.

*************************************************************

“TODD AKIN”…IS A TRUE CONSERVATIVE WHO BELIEVES IN LIMITED CONSTITUTIONAL GOVERNMENT AND HE IS NOT DROPPING OUT SO IT IS TIME TO GET BEHIND HIM

“CLAIRE McCASKILL”…IS A “BIG GOVERMENT” LIBERAL WHO THINKS GOVERNMENT NEEDS TO TAKE CARE OF YOU.

“RNC LEADERSHIP”…HASN’T MADE UP THEIR MIND YET.

“YOU AND I”………NEED TO DO THE DECIDING………AND IN LARGE NUMBERS, NOW, THIS FALL AND FROM NOW ON.

DON’T PAY ATTENTION TO ALL THE “MEDIA CONTROLED” POLLS

THEY HAD CARTER AHEAD OF REAGAN AT THIS POINT AND REAGAN WIPED HIM OUT

REMEMBER…THERE ARE MORE OF US THAN THEM !!!

WSJ…CONTEST (AND THE 71%)

http://blogs.marketwatch.com/great-columnist/2012/09/23/a-free-market-fix-for-health-care/

Young patient of mine majoring in Economics has some ideas on improving our healthcare system.

I love it that he (in his 20’s) is paying attention to politics because he is part of the 71% that admittedly does not vote.

He entered a contest at the Wall Street Journal that will publish his thoughts for a year if he gets the most Facebook “LIKES” at the site above.

I told him I would try to get him some “LIKES” if he promised to vote this year.

He also needs to get some of my thoughts in the WSJ once he wins.

Every vote from the “71%” helps; so go to the site above and click “LIKE”

That will be one more vote from the……… “71%”

WE ONLY GOT TEN REPUBLICAN VOTES IN THE SENATE LAST WEEK TO CUT FOREIGN AID TO EGYPT, LYBIA  AND PAKISTAN. (Won’t read that in the Drive By Media)

PLEASE CONTACT YOUR TWO SENATORS RIGHT NOW AND ASK THEM “WHAT THE HELL THEY ARE DOING IN THE SENATE ???

http://www.usa.gov/Contact/Elected.shtml

ODDS ARE YOUR SENATOR VOTED WRONG SO JUST CALL AND FIND OUT

WE NEED TO LET OUR SENATORS KNOW WE ARE PAYING ATTENTION.

WHILE YOU HAVE THEM ON THE LINE ASK THEM IF THEY ARE IN FAVOR OF ELIMINATING THE 16TH AMENDMENT.

HARD TO FUND ALL THESE WASTEFULL FEDERAL PROGAMS IF YOU CAN’T TAX INCOME

IF WE CANGE THE WAY WE FUND GOVERNMENT THESE TEMPORARY POLITICIANS WILL PAY MORE ATTENTION TO WHAT “WE THE PEOPLE” THINK

https://doctorjohnblog.com/2012/06/27/what-happened-to-america-a-vicious-self-perpetuating-cycle/

OBAMA UNWITTINGLY LEADS ROMNEY TO HIS PLACE IN HISTORY. (Will he take it?)

President Obama and the Main Stream Media are trying to steer attention away from his foreign policy and economic failures by digging up videos from Mitt Romney’s fundraisers.

THE 47% iSSUE

In fact they are steering us right into the most important dichotomy that this Presidential Election represents and it is an ………”INCOME TAX ISSUE”

47% OF AMERICANS DON’T PAY FEDERAL INCOME TAX AND IT IS BECAUSE OF THE WAY WE FUND OUR FEDERAL GOVERNMENT

IT’S “REDISTRIBUTION”

WE PROGRESSIVELY PUNISH SUCCESS IN AMERICA AND THESE TAX DOLLARS ARE REDISTRIBUTED BY TEMPORARY POLITICIANS TO THOSE WHO DON’T EARN THEM, MOSTLY THOUGH SOCIAL PROGRAMS AND WHO DO THOSE PEOPLE VOTE FOR ?

It’s a “Vicious Self Perpetuating Cycle”

There has never been an election with such polar opposite choices and President Obama is unwittingly leading his opponent (against RNC leadership advice) to the central issue and the fundamental choice we all need to make this fall.

WHAT DO YOU WANT ???

1) BIG GOVERNMENT (where you give up Individual Liberty and Government takes care of you in exchange for that individual liberty………Fundamental Change For America)

-or-

2) CONSTITUTIONALLY LIMITED GOVERNMENT (where the Individual rules and the God-given rights to Life, Liberty and The Pursuit of Happiness are respected………The American Way)

Mitt Romney was not my first choice during the Republican Primary but when considering the choices there really is no choice but Mitt Romney.

Mitt Romney’s history is that of a man who when put on a job accomplishes his mission.

I ask you    “THE QUESTION”………….

IF RONALD REAGAN’S 25% ACROSS THE BOARD INCOME TAX CUTS LED TO THE GREATEST PERIOD OF ECONOMIC GROWTH IN AMERICA’S HISTORY………WHAT WOULD AMERICA LOOK LIKE TODAY IF HE HAD MADE THOSE CUTS 100% AND PERMANENT BY ELIMINATING THE 16TH AMENDMENT TO THE CONSTITUTION ?

Think about that.

ROMNEY COULD GO DOWN IN HISTORY NEXT TO REAGAN IF HE PLAYS HIS CARDS RIGHT ON THIS.

ALL IT WOULD TAKE WOULD BE FOR HIM TO DECLARE AFTER INAUGERATED, THAT HE INTENDS TO LEAD US IN HIS FIRST TERM TO CHANGE THE WAY WE FUND FEDERAL GOVERNMENT.

AND THAT HE WILL DO THIS BY BEGINING A NATIONAL DIALOGE ABOUT THE BENEFITS OF ELIMINATING THE 16TH AMENDMENT AND INCOME TAX IN AMERICA.

TAX REFORM IS ONLY TEMPORARY IF THE 16TH AMENDMANT IS NOT GONE.

Please “COMMENT”  here then go to your e-mail lists, blogs and the Media tomorrow and ask   “THE QUESTION”. (ABOVE)

ROMNEY COULD GO DOWN IN HISTORY NEXT TO REAGAN IF HE PLAYS HIS CARDS RIGHT ON THIS.

https://doctorjohnblog.com/2012/08/24/are-you-talking-to-the-71-who-can-we-believe-and-who-should-we-vote-for/

WE NEED TO GET OUR GOVERNMENT BACK INTO IT’S “CONSTITUTIONAL CAGE” BUT FIRST WE NEED TO GET AN ADMINISTRATION INTO THE WHITE HOUSE THAT WILL PROTECT AMERICA AGAINST THE RADICAL ISLAMIST THREAT PRESIDENT OBAMA IS BOWING DOWN TO.

PLEASE PASS IT ON………WE NEED TO GET THE SILENT CONSERVATIVE MAJORITY TO THE POLLS THIS FALL (29% WON’T CUT IT)
