Speech before the House of Representatives
by David (Davy) Crockett
Editor’s note: David Crockett, perhaps best known for his role in the 1836 defense of the Alamo, also served three terms in the United States Congress between 1827 and 1835. The following excerpt from an 1884 biography by Edward S. Ellis, The Life of Colonel David Crockett, reveals how his electorate taught him the importance of adhering to the Constitution and the perils of ignoring its restrictions.

Huffington Post blogger, screenwriter and politically correct Kevin Miller has slandered renowned Christian evangelist Jerry Newcombe. In a radio appearance and in some articles, Newcombe opined that evildoers who massacre innocent people, like the killer who recently shot up a midnight showing of THE DARK KNIGHT RISES, seem to have no fear of Hell.
Newcombe complained that people today have no fear of God or Hell because today’s society has rejected the Christian, biblical doctrine of Hell where Jesus and His apostles clearly say that those who reject Christ will have to pay for their evil sins by suffering eternal damnation in Hell.

As a former LSA at the U.S. Attorney’s Office SDNY and publisher of MOVIEGUIDE(r) which reaches millions, I am appalled at your insensitivity, bigotry and antagonism to faith and values when you opposed preserving marriage as the union of one man and one woman in Minnesota. In spite of the fact that you will get the support of the anti-faith bullies who have attacked faith and values, you will lose the support of millions who support the natural family by excluding them in such a misguided manner.

Fox News has just published an article entitled “Does America Need Ayn Rand or Jesus?” As it was written by Onkar Ghate of the Ayn Rand Institute, you can imagine how he voted. After showing what can only be described as willful ignorance about historic Christianity, he concluded by writing: “Today we face starkly different choices….Don’t we need Ayn Rand?” Rand’s philosophy supposedly considers objectivity to be a cardinal virtue. So before you vote for one or the other, allow me to share why that sounds like Pilate asking the mob to vote for Jesus or Barabbas.

God has nurtured, blessed and empowered Good News Communications/Christian Film & Television Commission®/MOVIEGUIDE® over the last 32 years, providing incredible opportunities for us to witness to Him and supporting us as we ventured forth in faith in His Grace.
One of the great achievements in our entire history was the fact we initiated the campaign that stopped the vile movie ANTICHRIST from making money at the box office. In fact, the movie made a measly $400,000 at the box office.
Furthermore, we helped five universities conceptualize film and media departments.
Also, I had more opportunities to preach and teach around the United States. And, I recently completed a visit to South Korea, where I taught media wisdom to 880 or more Christian educators and met with leading filmmakers in the movie industry there, convincing them to producer family-friendly movies with faith and values.
In addition, our promotion of our main website and its new design, www.movieguide.org, helped it reach new heights of visibility, averaging 7 million hits and more per month and allowing us to start selling a new iPhone application for our reviews.

Today the people of California get to decide whether to legalize marijuana. Let’s hope they decide against it.
Whatever happens, however, let’s put an end to the stupid arguments that libertarians, liberals and red diaper doper babies make in favor of legalizing drugs, including marijuana.
One of the arguments these airheads make is that the War on Drugs is “unwinnable.” When people say it’s an “unwinnable” war, what do they really mean? What does it mean to win the drug war? You can’t possibly mean winning the drug war means no one using drugs, because, by that same logic, the war against violent crime is unwinnable.
This argument is specious. When confronted with such an argument, ask the person, What level of drug use constitutes “winning” the War on Drugs? Just because there’s rampant crime of any sort, that shouldn’t make us just give up!
Another argument in favor of legalization has the pro-legalization person asking the anti-legalization person, “If you make drugs legal, would you do drugs?”
The person’s answer to that question probably will be no, but what if it isn’t?
Of course, if they legalized rape or prostitution tomorrow, we ourselves wouldn’t suddenly become a pimp or a prostitute, much less rape anyone. Just because the average person wouldn’t do these things does not mean that a lot of other people wouldn’t do them.
Robbing banks is a perfect example here. If they made robbing banks legal, or-de-criminalized it, the average person probably isn’t going to start robbing banks, but many other people will.
Often, the pro-legalization person cites America’s allegedly bad experience with the Prohibition of alcohol in the 1920s.
The fact is, however, during Prohibition, the consumption of alcohol did indeed decline. Thus, Prohibition did indeed inhibit drinking.

On October 22, 2010 President Barack Obama issued a formal message to young girls and boys to “be true to” themselves by adopting the current lionized state of homosexism as “a source of pride, and a source of strength.” Having been young once himself, Mr. Obama knows that teenagers are by definition “immature” and remain so until roughly age 21 when their cognitive neuro anatomy catches up with their bodies.
Why tell children to feel “pride” and “strength” in adopting an early death sentence when you are too immature to know much of anything? How cruel, how outrageously heartless!
Instead of urging vulnerable youths into premature sexual riddled with crippling disease and death, Mr. Obama should have pointed to the October 9, 1998 Washington Post full page advert by The Whitman-Walker Clinic.

During the Ronald Reagan Administration, Voice of America (VOA), the nation’s international broadcast network, was used effectively to educate the Soviet people about the virtues of freedom. By all accounts, it played a huge roll in bringing down the Soviet empire from within, and providing freedom to its people, which had been enslaved by communism.
Now another despotic regime, even more evil than the Soviets, threatens not only its people, but the entire world. This is the radical Islamic regime in Iran, run by fanatical mullahs who are bent on the destruction of the Persian people, as well as Christians and Jews worldwide. These mullahs are perpetrating a modern day Holocaust, imprisoning, raping, torturing, and murdering anyone who dare complain about their brand of extreme Islam, or women’s or other human rights.

The Muslim holy book, the Quran, tells Muslims it’s okay to lie about their faith to Non-Muslims to avoid “persecution,” but you can drive a 747 jumbo jet through that word “persecution” (see Sura 16:106 and 3:28 of the Quran).
In the last few days, Imam Feisel Abdul Rauf, the allegedly “moderate” Muslim behind the Ground Zero Mosque and Muslim “cultural” center in New York City, has told both CNN and ABC News that, if America doesn’t allow him and his Muslim supporters to build the mosque and cultural center, other Muslims around the world will “explode.”
“If we do move [the mosque],” Rauf said, “it will strengthen the argument of the [Muslim] radicals to recruit, their ability to recruit, and their increasing aggression and violence against our country.”
Apparently, President Barack Obama, who was raised as a Muslim by his stepfather in Islamofascist, Muslim-controlled Indonesia, agrees with Rauf’s assessment.

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?

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.

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.

What does the Bible, the fully inspired and inerrant Word of God, say about government and politics, including the modern social welfare state, public education, ownership of private property, and helping the needy?
Proverbs 8:15, 16 of the Bible, the inspired Word of God, says that governments should use wisdom to rule and to make laws that are just. Proverbs 17:7 says rulers also should not lie. Proverbs 20:26 says wise rulers always try to punish the wicked. Proverbs 28:2-4 and 29:4 urges rulers to maintain order justly, to follow God’s moral code and to avoid oppressing the poor.
Furthermore, both Romans 13:3-6 and 1 Peter 2:13-15 say that government officials, whether elected or not, are ministers and servants of God who punish and restrain wrongdoers and who commend or praise those who do good works according to God’s transcendent moral code revealed in the Holy Scriptures, the Bible. Government officials must do these things whether or not the people believe in God or the Bible.

The world is witnessing how amoral secular economics turned the government of Greece into a gambling den. The same invisible force has also blinded Wall Street and the government of the United States into gambling away the future of America’s children. Who listens when America’s most respected investor, Warren Buffett, calls “derivatives” the “economic weapons of mass destruction” that would devastate New York in a way the 9/11 terrorists could not even imagine? The utterly insecure subprime mortgages that government-sponsored economic enterprises (AIG, Freddy Mac and Fannie Mae) sold as “high value securities” were “derivatives.” President Bush forced honest, hard-working, tax-paying Americans to bail out corrupt gamblers that should have been thrown in prison. Future Commanders-in-Chief may need the military to squeeze bailout dollars from uncooperative Americans.

If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do? (Psalms 11:3)
By Neil Markva, Attorney
With state and federal governments now tagging Bible-believing Christians as “extremists” whom citizens must be wary, it’s time to examine the Biblical basis of Christianity and its role in our nation’s Christian heritage. For America has fallen from the pinnacle of “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness” marked as God-given unalienable rights in our founding document, the Declaration of Independence, to the point of imposed government’s complete control of our lives.
In 1828, Noah Webster published the American Dictionary of the English Language after 28 years of compiling it. The introduction of its 1967 reproduction states that the dictionary “was produced during the years when the American home, church and school were established upon a Biblical and a patriotic basis.” Webster is quoted as saying:
In my view, the Christian religion is the most important and one of the first things in which all children, under a free government, ought to be instructed…. no truth is more evident to my mind than that the Christian religion must be the basis of any government intended to secure the rights and privileges of a free people….
Webster echoes the words of Jesus in His great commission to his disciples when He said, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth.” He announces His authority in heaven as the Son of God and on earth as the Son of Man created with dominion over the earth and everything in it.

Christians and Conservatives Are Not the Ones Being Really Stupid and Ignorant
By Dr. Tom Snyder with Dr. Ted Baehr
Still basking in the joy of Resurrection Day (or “Easter” to those of you who don’t know that the Vicarious Atonement, Death and Resurrection of Jesus Christ is the real reason for the current holy season), it strikes us how often atheists, alleged skeptics, liberals, leftists, fascists, Neo-Marxists, and other pseudo-intellectual elitists like to malign Christians and conservatives for being stupid and ignorant.
One of the most common, but dishonest and disingenuous, ploys of these Anti-Christian bigots is to take a fringe group (like the tiny militia members the FBI arrested in late March) and lay the blame at the feet of Christianity or conservatives.
It’s important to note, however, that these kinds of malicious, lamebrain labels are coming from people who believe that Mozart and Moses descended from monkeys and that increasing taxes and spending and re-distributing wealth will create jobs and prosperity in the private sector and not just the government.
Of course, we can all agree that Christians and conservatives, not to mention Republicans, are not completely immune from stupidity and ignorance. Or even prejudice and bigotry.
But, thousands of years of history, experience, research, objective science, and rational thought clearly demonstrate that Christian and conservative thinkers are among the most intelligent, insightful, and reliable thinkers in history.
Especially when compared to what passes for “intelligent” thought among today’s atheists, evolution “scientists,” skeptics, and leftists.
