It's time to be sure the word LUTHERAN doesn't become a confusion factor with this kind of foolishness going on. The ELCA is to the balance of Lutheranism as a cluck hen is to an eagle. Both have feathers and both are from the bird family. THIS IS SICK!
A couple of days ago I wrote about Christian Churches Read Quran from Pulpits across America. Today I’m writing about another Christian church that is defiling the name of Jesus Christ by hosting a woman who claims to be high priestess of the Egyptian goddess Isis along with her priestesses.
This is really good, I hope you will take 3 minutes and watch it. It's not about politics, it's about the eternal hatred for God's Chosen people. The JEW. Don't be part of it.
Based on Melanie Phillips' new paperback edition of her bestseller, "The World Turned Upside Down," we explain how the Occupy Wall Street movement and the socialist-Islamist-fascist axis unite around the anti-Semitic banner.
I am certain of this, we, the USA, will have to defend the Mexican Border militarily, not for illegals, but from Drug Lords of War. If Mexico is unable to stop this plague, then we will have to intervene and invade Mexico. We cannot have a failed state with a shared unprotected border for thousands of miles. Get ready, it is coming.

Here's a question of the day, Is getting a degree or diploma the same as getting an education. I don't think so. I know many graduates who are sadly uneducated. I think the saddest of all are those preachers on TV who are DR this or that. Yet they can barely speak or write the English language, they share things from the Word of God that aren't even there. Getting a diploma or degree doesn't mean you know anything.

People who seem to view education as more ritual than the acquisition of practical skills or knowledge, it occurred to me that many of these young people may not understand that they aren’t really, despite the time and money spent, actually educated.
The number of Republicans who don't attend church is up to. From 36-39%. BUT if you are a democrat you are Much Less Likely to attend church. It is part of why there is such a divide in this nation.
A new report from Gallup shows some startling revelations about American Democrats. While it’s been known for quite some time that Republicans are more likely to attend church, this new analysis from the non-partisan research group adds greater understanding the faith dynamics of those who subscribe...
I read this..I am thankful that my college education is what I do for a living 43 years later. I have a double major Botany and Horticulture with a minor in English. I do all of the above every day. When I read this I came to realize that College has become a ritual of passage, not an education. Read this whole thing and think twice before taking on a big loan for an "Education" that isn't.


I’ve been reading through the “We Are the 99 Percent” and other related web sites. A constant refrain is that young adults went tens of thousands of dollars into debt for degrees and now they can’t find even minimum wage jobs. I don’t think they really understand the purpose of education.

This one complains that, “I have a Magna Cum Laude BA, and not even the grocery store will hire me.” This one says, “I’m over $100k in student loan debt and my career isn’t even in the field I went into copious amounts of debt over.” This one says, ‘My husband and I both went to college like we were “supposed” to do.’ This one says, “I am 25 yrs old and months away from a master’s degree. My bachelor’s is in literature/9-12 education…Well over $30K in student loan debt.”

Carefully missing from most of the complaints is the type of degree they got, but I think it’s fairly clear that most of these people got liberal-arts degrees. Moreover, there is no evidence that they pursued these degrees with any eye towards practical economic returns for their considerable financial investment.

I really get the sense that many of these people simply don’t understand that an education is supposed to equip you with skills that make you valuable to other people. Instead, I think these kids have somehow got the idea that college is more of a ritual you have to go through, a kind of right of passage, that entitles you to a middle-class or better life-style while pursuing a job you find interesting and emotionally fulfilling.

They’re just shocked and amazed that they’ve gone through all the rituals, got the degrees and the accolades of their professors and nobody out in the real world gives a damn.

We need to think long and hard how so many young people simply don’t understand the purpose of education. Where did they get the idea that a liberal-arts degree automatically entitled them to a middle-class income that could easily pay off tens of thousands in student loans?

I don’t think it was Wall Street.

Wisdom from Will Rogers

Will Rogers, who died in a 1935 plane crash with his best friend, Wylie Post, was probably the greatest political sage the U.S. ever has known.

1. Never slap a man who's chewing tobacco.

2. Never kick a cow chip on a hot day.

3. There are two theories to arguing with a woman . . . Neither works.

4. Never miss a good chance to shut up.

5. Always drink upstream from the herd.

6. If you find yourself in a hole, stop digging.

7. The quickest way to double your money is to fold it and put it back into your pocket.

8. There are three kinds of men: The ones that learn by reading. The few who learn by observation. The rest of them have to pee on the electric fence and find out for themselves.

9. Good judgment comes from experience, and a lot of that comes from bad judgment.

10. If you're riding' ahead of the herd, take a look back every now and then to make sure it's still there.

11. Lettin' the cat outta the bag is a whole lot easier'n puttin' it back.

12. After eating an entire bull, a mountain lion felt so good he started roaring. He kept it up until a hunter came along and shot him. The moral: When you're full of bull, keep your mouth shut.


First ~ Eventually you will reach a point when you stop lying about your age and start bragging about it.

Second ~ The older we get, the fewer things seem worth waiting in line for.

Third ~ Some people try to turn back their odometers. Not me; I want people to know 'why' I look this way. I've traveled a long way, and some of the roads weren't paved.

Fourth ~ When you are dissatisfied and would like to go back to youth, think of Algebra.

Fifth ~ You know you are getting old when everything either dries up or leaks.

Sixth ~ I don't know how I got over the hill without getting to the top.

Seventh ~ One of the many things no one tells you about aging is that it is such a nice change from being young.

Eighth ~ One must wait until evening to see how splendid the day has been.

Ninth ~ Being young is beautiful, but being old is comfortable.

Tenth ~ Long ago, when men cursed and beat the ground with sticks, it was called witchcraft...Today it's called golf.

The Lonely Man..Most men are profoundly lonely..Yesterday I had lunch with three guys I've known for years

by Merrill Thompson

Dr. Charles B.Brown

The Lonely Man Most men are profoundly lonely.Yesterday I had lunch with three guys I've known for years. We spent ninety minutes together. We talked about business, God, current news, and the TV program, "Who Wants to be a Millionaire?" We laughed, exchanged thoughts and ideas. But we didn't know each other any better after lunch than before.Last night I went with a group of guys to an NBA game. We talked basketball, exercise, golf, and business. We spent about five hours together. But we didn't know each other any better alter the game than before. "Should every lunch or outing be a therapy session?" No.But one reason we are profoundly lonely is that we are s-l-o-w to open up.Actually, most of us never do. We talk about issues, ideas, and interests,yet seldom disclose our feelings, needs, hurts, fears, hopes, dreams,struggles, sins, or disappointments.

Lonely men reveal what they think and conceal who they are. Lonely men live on life's side roads. They smile, laugh, work, play, make deals, and hangout with their buddies. But nobody gets on the inside. Therefore, lonely men settle for surface talk, surface relationships, and a surface existence.Lonely men usually engage life through competition. Everything is a game."What's wrong with that?" Let's see... Some things are worth competing for.The value of our competitiveness is determined by the value of its object:Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize. Everyone who competes in the games goes into strict training. They do it to get a crown that will not last; but we do it to get a crown that will last forever (I Cor. 9:24,25).However, when competition defines a man's life, then it becomes a wall to hide behind or an activity to get lost in. A competitive spirit sees everyone as an opponent to conquer not a person to open up to. A competitive spirit keeps opponents at arm's length. A competitive spirit is always on the defensive and never lets its guard down.I know men who compete at work twelve hours a day not just to make money or get ahead, but to avoid going home and facing their wives' soul-probing questions: "How are you feeling?" "Is something bothering you?" "Is everything all right?" "Are you sure nothing's wrong?"

Competitive men surround themselves with noise and activity to dull the ache of their lonely souls and to keep from being "found out." Inscribed on the lonely man's tank top, "Sissies open up. Let the games begin!"

So the games begin --- work, sex, power, money, investing, sports, hobbies, television, video games, surfing the net, guns, golf, fishing, hunting, bowling, racing, running, hiking, exercise, power lifting, basketball, football, baseball, tennis, bowling, pool, roller blades, extreme sports --- you name it we play it!

The lonely man muscles his way through life. Competition is his shield.

Therefore, the man is known by what he does not by who he is.

Competition makes a great mistress. She doesn't look behind the mask, she doesn't ask any soul-probing questions. But she has her price. Competition drains the masculine soul.

This is why the lonely man feels like a pack mule. He carries back breaking loads of emotional baggage. His isolated soul is crammed full of suppressed emotions, unresolved anger, gnawing guilt, humiliating shame, crushed dreams, and acute disappointments. He gropes for strength. He hides his pain. Yet, to protect his fragile ego, he stays in the game and competes with a vengeance.

When anyone tries to get past his shield, the lonely man retreats behind socially accepted responses: "I'm fine," "It's under control," "Nothing's wrong," "I can handle it!" What happens when the lonely man remains lonely?

Hold on to your ball cap...

The Passive Man

These words are inscribed on the doormat of the lonely man's soul, "passivity welcome." Don't misunderstand the passive man. He's not a three hundred pound couch potato with beer stains on his tee shirt whose fingers are callused from channel surfing.

The passive man can be an aggressive competitor, a successful leader, a gifted performer. The passive man can make a name for himself and leave his mark on society. Yet, for all his sound and fury, passivity rules his soul.

"What is passivity?" Passivity is the tendency of the masculine soul to allow part of his life to remain untouched and unmoved. And the part that remains untouched and unmoved is the most important part --- the hidden soul, the hurting boy, the wounded warrior, the lonely seeker, the frustrated conqueror, the disillusioned hero, the needy beggar.

A passive man hides the personal, displays the impersonal. He shrinks from transparency, gravitates toward hypocrisy. The passive man dodges what God desires --- in the inner parts (Psalm 51:6).

I know passive men who eat tough decisions for breakfast, but who would rather sleep on a bed of nails than un-mask their fragile egos by admitting one moral failure ("I've sinned..."), one emotional need ("I need you..."), or one painful disappointment ("I hurt...")

The passive man usually handles "tough stuff' and almost always side-steps the "vulnerable strut". Therefore, like father Adam, the passive man is forever hiding.

What happens if passivity goes unchecked?

Do the Democrats want to create jobs -- or red tape? | Examiner Editorial | Editorials | Washington Examiner

The total US economy is 13 trillion per year. One trillion is spent on complying with regulations. Something is wrong here.

A new video produced by the Republican Study Committee (RSC) for the Internet this week opens with Rep.Cynthia Lummis standing beside a Caterpillar tractor and pointing to a stack of new federal regulations that is taller than she is. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to understand that an economy is less able to create new jobs when it costs more than $1 trillion a year to comply with federal regulations. In an effort to spark job creation, the House has passed -- with bipartisan majorities -- 15 bills in 2011 designed to loosen this regulatory straitjacket, as well as simplify the tax code and enable the energy industry to expand domestic production and employment.

Articles: Green Energy: Damn the Facts, Full Speed Ahead!

The United States is very close to adopting an international agreement that would ration the use of energy and of technologies that depend upon coal, oil, and natural gas and some other organic compounds. ... This treaty is, in our opinion, based upon flawed ideas. Research data on climate change do not show that human use of hydrocarbons is harmful. To the contrary, there is good evidence that increased atmospheric carbon dioxide is environmentally helpful.

We have the tinfoil hat folks making policy.

Stop the madness.
