The news announcement Wednesday, July 7, 2010 that eight Christians were killed in Nigerian Muslim attacks is another example of fundamentalist Muslims under Sharia law doing what comes naturally – viciously murdering innocent people, especially Christians, Jews, Hindus, and Buddhists.
It has been said by the uneducated that all religions are the same – that there is no difference between Christians, Muslims, Jews, Hindus, etc. . . . That doesn’t make any sense! That’s like saying all ice cream flavors taste the same. Or, better yet, all political opinions are the same. If that were true, what is everybody fighting about? And, why do ice cream companies make so many different flavors?
Physician and spiritual guru Deepak Chopra has the answers to all that ails you. As a resonant voice echoing through the mirrored, metaphysical halls of the New Age movement, Chopra believes that looking within to our inner gods and goddesses will release the divine life, which we all are capable of enjoying, from optimal health and happiness to transcendent peace and prosperity.
The problem lies in the inescapable fact that human beings are inherently sinful, hopelessly adrift, fundamentally foolish, and powerless, in our own strength, to reach even the remotest ring rippling from the epicenter of any ageless, amorphous universal energy from which, in Chopra’s view, all divinity flows.
So what is the matter with Obama? Conservatives have been asking this question for some time. I’ve written a number of articles trying to solve the mystery.
Even some liberals are starting to wonder. James Carville railed about Obama’s blasé attitude after the catastrophic oil spill. The New York Times’ Maureen Dowd revamped Obama’s “Yes We Can” motto into “Will We Ever?”
Government can suppress it, deride it, attempt to lay claim to it, but they cannot stop it. Talk show hosts are speaking of it, many are now calling for it and more Americans understand the necessity for it, whether they believe in it or not. There is an uprising, a movement, a need to return to God. From the founding of this great nation, our forefathers knew that our liberty and rights are gifts from our Creator.
“Can the liberties of a nation be sure when we remove their only firm basis, a convictionin the minds of the people, that these liberties are a gift from God? ” Thomas Jefferson
Of late, talk show hosts such as Limbaugh, Beck, Levin, Larson, Gallagher, Cunningham and an array of others are now openly calling for a
Only about one-third of Americans take a strong stand when it comes to abortion, according to the Barna Research Group.
A recent survey of 1,001 adults by Barna shows that 19% of Americans believe the practice should be illegal in all cases while 15% want abortion to be legal in all cases. Regrettably, however, 49% prefer keeping abortion legal in most or all cases while 42% would like to make it illegal in most or all cases.
My grandfather, Isadore Klayman, a Jew, fled the Soviet Union as a young boy, entering this country legally though Ellis Island, as most immigrants did in the early part of the 20th century. Not knowing his birthday – the Ukraine was not big on record keeping, particularly for rural farm families – “Izzy” was asked by the government immigration officer to pick a date for his entry visa. Izzy’s reply, “I’ll take Christmas, December 25! If it’s good enough for Jesus, it’s good enough for me!”

A short time before the passage of what is now known as Obama Care, I was one of a few people at a private lunch with Congresswoman Michele Bachmann (R-MN), one of the premiere conservatives in the House. She is pro-life and pro-family, as well as fiscally conservative. She has a firm understanding of how the current entitlement culture is destroying not only the financial foundations, but the social foundations of our nation. During the lunch Congresswoman Bachmann asked me what might seem an odd question to some, unless they knew that I had myself been raised in an atheistic, Marxist home in the 1960’s. She wanted to know why liberals can maintain such an attitude of superiority even when their concepts have been proven wrong so often and have led to such disasters.
I responded to Michele that the liberal mind functions according to “magic thought” which allows them to believe that their very opinions prove they have “evolved” further than other humans. Ultimately, I told her, Read MoreOUR GOVERNMENT . . . WHAT WENT WRONG?
