(Can't reply to the topic because of ' in title)

Yep, it's sad how pervasive political correctness is in our country.
And how so many Christians kowtow to it. I say we go out there and burn ACLU pamphlets in the square! That'll show 'em...

Well no. Protests and marches aren't exactly effective, I don't think.

So what should be done, warsong? Passive resistance? (Like ignoring the rules and chanting "We love Jesus" and preaching that homosexuality is wrong and praying in public school and singing hymns in public school and putting a Bible on your desk and other types of rebellion)

Bill O'Relly has a book about that which I didn't read which talks about PC, the ACLU, and secular progressives as he says. As bad as he is to many other news people are worse. Well like the saying goes "no one is perfect".

What should people so. Well what are some peoples suggestions? People should stand up for what they believe in a democratic way. As for a real answer talk is cheap, protests and talk shows just blow steam. Maybe u have to hit where it hurts at the green and not buy what they sell.

You are what you are and you should buy from people like you since in the end it will help you. I also think that the church should do a lot more than just preach since thats what it did in early Christian life to help people financially, especially today since things are going down and many say we will go to a recessesion, but I hope not another depression since many people will not survive.

Yeah, I think you're right.

I wonder how much money political candidates raise at churches or Christian fund-raisers.

You know - I can't think of any good politicians. If Christians would stop giving them money - any of them... hmm...

Political action comities (pacs) are generally BS. Rich people give to candidates and the ones that give the most are secularists groups and non Americans gives the most to American candidates and they6 have to sign a paper saying that they will do what they promises or else they will be in big trouble. Many side with secularists out of fear since if they don't accept the money the other candidate will.

I would post official news sources but I don't know if people can handle the true. Itís not by the people for the people anymore but by the rich for the rich, and sad to say most push for anti Christian legislations since they know the money comes form secularists that want anti Christian things.

The Bushs, Clintons, Kerrys, Kennedyís, whoever they are they all know who brought them to the dance and who they made deals with and itís not the Christians since they are too soft to have an impact on them. The Christian coalition has an impact but not as much as the secularist groups.

Instead of democrats, republicans, etc maybe there should me a Christian part lol, but Christians are too disorganized to do that as of yet.

My Dad hates him. Well... not hate - but dislike.

It's strange the way everyone spells that though. Warsong says "O'Relly" - Lava says "O'Reily"...

Is this a conspiracy?

That person has a lot of grammar errors, let's go beat him up. lol

Laz
Yeah it's O'Reilly

He says outlandish things. The sexual harassment scandal I know someone that knows the girls family. lol Also I know someone that is friends with someone that works for him and he does the same to other women and threatens them if they say something to others. It is hard to not take a side in the news industry and he is no different. But his show is better than the other clowns on TV. But I prefer foreign news on debates sometimes. And bill is no conservative or liberal as some may want him to be, but as he said he is in the middle.
All news agencies eat from the same trough, just like how all politicians eat from the same trough. If they all didn't play ball they would not be seen in the first place. Just like every other profession like lawyers and judges. Itís all who you know and not what you know, which is also why the Anna Nicole case is going the way it does because the judges, lawyers, and connected with Stern more than Anna Nicoleís mom. All honest lawyers know this.

The whole Anna Nicole Smith debacle disgusts me - and it shows how degraded not only the news services, but also some of the American people are.

Pfft. Who knows how many important news items have been passed over because there's so much reporting gong on of this dead playboy girl and her dumb daughter and stupid husband(s) and dead son?!

It's insane! Everytime I turn on the TV - it's just "Anna anna anna anna" with pictures of her in wild costumes scattered throughout.

*ahem*

See? It all goes back to Vatican II - otherwise, they would have chanted in Latin. :-p

Read my post that explains more. In that it is predicted that people would not care about the news since so much junk is throw to people that don't know what to believe and are too busy to care which is why people get used easily. From an older book called "Brave New World" which is more accurate than 1984.

@warsong: it was a joke. Thus the :-p. I was making a joke on "chant" - in the context, "chant" means the things that sports teams & their fans do; when I read the initial post, I just had a funny picture in my head of these Catholic kids chanting, as in Gregorian chant. And since they're Catholic, it's because of Vatican II that they now do religious things in English vernacular, rather than Latin.

Edit: and if they were chanting, as in cheering (or Gregorian, for that matter), in Latin, it would have still been lame and annoying, but perhaps not as inflammatory and provocative.

Perhaps it was too much of a stretch, but there it is. Now you know what I'm talking about.

Also, the name is Tonnyx. The 'x' is very important, as are the other letters.

Tonyx: Haha. Funny.

And warsong, I don't care much about the news either. It's half-garbage anyway - no, 2/3... or maybe 3/4...

Or you could've replied like this:

"Warsong, shouldn't this be a PM message than a entire post? Also why do you have so many posts in such a short time? Anyway what do you think I meant? It can man many things but don't take things the wrong way even thought seems harsh."

Haha JK
