Being Our Own Worst Enemy

Friday, May 8, 2015  |  posted by John Schroeder

After more than 40 years of life as an active Christian and having personally been on the receiving end of some really boneheaded moves purportedly in the name of Christ you would think I would quit being astonished when I encounter Christian jerks, but alas.  I have written in this space that it is the battle of character that will bring us eventual victory, and that how we conduct the battle matters more than the end result.  But it seems some people have not gotten the message.

There are no comments on this blog, but things written here are syndicated to places where there are comments.  So a few days ago when I wrote of Mike Huckabee, I was truly stunned when comments began to appear saying incredibly nasty things about Guy Benson, and Salem Communications and Fox News (two of his employers) because Benson let the world know this week that he is gay.  With the exception of the legalization of marijuana, I have never known Benson to take a stance I disagree with and I have never heard him claim faith of any type.  So why all the ugly, ugly vitriol?

Things That Would Make Great Tweets…

Thursday, May 7, 2015  |  posted by John Schroeder

…If anyone read my tweets @Art6B.  Besides its easier to read without hashtags.

Always read VDH — Always

The noose around the church’s neck.  And in this “faustian” deal, note who is the devil.

Same-sex marriage is about much more than same-sex marriageMuch more.

Because history is interesting, and informative and who knew?

Evangelicals, a herd of cats organized by a tornado.

The opposite of religious freedom is mob rule.  At least according to this guy.

Venice as exemplar.  Way cool city to visit, but its history is far more informative than its amazing architecture might indicate.

Ethical dilemmas and reproductive technology.  If the church is moved out of the public square, this could lead to stuff that used to only happen in monster movies.

And finally, Why is all the news about what Bill Clinton is saying not Hillary Clinton?  She’s the one running for president.  And I am not the only one noticing.

Former Missouri Senator And AEI Fellow Jim Talent On Ex-Im Bank

The Transcript:

HH: The biggest story of the afternoon in my view is the one that the New York Daily News brought to us, I told you about last hour, ISIS appearing to declare war on Pamela Geller, threatening that there are 71 trained ISIS killers in 15 different states ready at our word to attack, and it specifically names Virginia, Maryland, Illinois, Michigan and California. Joining me now, former United States Senator Jim Talent, who just knows this area of national security so well. Senator Talent, welcome, it’s always good to talk to you.

JT: Thanks, Hugh, it’s always good to be on.

HH: What do you make of this internet war that’s now broken out? Obviously, jihadists tried to kill Pam Geller and the people at her exhibition. Now, ISIS is posting anonymous threats. Ought we to publicize them? And my first question is should we cover threats like this when ISIS makes them?

JT: Well, yeah, I think without trying to overstate the danger, the public needs to know that one of their tactics is to radicalize people in country. So there’s a sense in which these individuals act alone in that they’re most often, you know, they’re not, it’s not part of a plan that they conspired to do with ISIS. But it is part of ISIS’ plans to radicalize people and then to claim credit afterward. So while we don’t know the details, yet, this is consistent with their operation. Continue Reading

Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal Debates Ex-Im Bank

The Transcript:

HH: The biggest news of the day is not Deflate-gate. It is in fact the threat by the Islamic State against Pamela Geller. Joining me to discuss that and other issues of American power is Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal. Governor Jindal, welcome back, it’s always great to talk to you.

BJ: Hugh, it’s great to talk to you as well. I hope you got all your shots before you went to Washington, D.C.

HH: I did. I’m immune. I left years ago and I am immune. Governor, I’ve got to begin with this very troubling story. The Islamic State posted an anonymous message today threatening Pamela Geller, stating that there are 71 trained soldiers in 15 states. Mike McCaul, who is the chairman of the House Homeland Security says this is the textbook case of what we’re most concerned about, very serious. Are we doing enough surveillance?

BJ: Well Hugh, we’re not doing enough nearly at all to take this threat seriously. It starts first of all with a president who seemly won’t even identify the threat for what it is, radical Islamic terrorism. And so even before we get to surveillance, we need a president who will define the problem and say honestly Islam’s got a problem, and it’s called radical Islam. Their proponents want to, they hate our 1st Amendment, they hate freedom of speech. They want to destroy that, they want to destroy us. We’re not going to win this battle, we’re not going to deal with this problem unless we admit that it exists. It’s time for the President to say clearly to Muslim leaders that they need to step, declare that the perpetrators of such violence are the enemy, they are wrong, they are not martyrs that are going to be rewarded in the afterlife. These Muslim leaders also need to say that they are tolerant of every person in the world who doesn’t share their religious views, they condemn anybody who commits violence in the name of Islam. I’m not just saying condemning specific acts of violence, but I’m saying specific condemnation of these individuals and their acts, and saying specifically they tolerate people with different religious views. No excuse for our president not to ask for that. There’s no reason for us not to be demanding that right now, none. And look, you saw the attack in Texas. You saw the attack in Paris. You saw the attack in Australia. Clearly, ISIS wants to bring this fight to us, which is why it’s so important we need to hunt them down and kill them wherever they exist, especially in Syria and Iraq. When it comes to the threat here at home, look, until the President is willing to at least honestly define the threat we face, we don’t have a chance of beating this enemy until he’s willing to do that.
