A week away

27 10 2008

The election is a week away, and I would like to encourage people to vote for morals, values and ethics.  Take a look at the voters guide to see where the candidates stand on critical issues.

Voters Guide

Obama is one of the most pro-choice (let’s use more direct words… pro-murder, pro-infanticide), pro-homosexuality, pro-judicial-activism candidates ever.

I’ll keep my God, my freedom, my guns, and my money, you can keep “The Change”.  Vote for McCain!

Massachusetts, it’s worse than you think

22 10 2008

Want to know what the Gay activists will do in California?  Well, all you have to do is look at what they have done in Massachusetts, which (I’ll admit) was much worse than I thought.  The following has been taken from this website written by Brian Camenker:

Anyone who thinks that same-sex “marriage” is a benign eccentricity which won’t affect the average person should consider what it has done in Massachusetts. It’s become a hammer to force the acceptance and normalization of homosexuality on everyone. And this train is moving fast. What has happened so far is only the beginning.

On November 18, 2003, the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court announced its Goodridge opinion, ruling that it was unconstitutional not to allow same-sex “marriage.” Six months later, homosexual marriages began to be performed.

The public schools

The homosexual “marriage” onslaught in public schools across the state started soon after the November 2003, court decision.

  • At my own children’s high school there was a school-wide assembly to celebrate same-sex “marriage” in early December, 2003. It featured an array of speakers, including teachers at the school who announced that they would be “marrying” their same-sex partners and starting families either through adoption or artificial insemination. Literature on same-sex marriage – how it is now a normal part of society – was handed out to the students.
  • Within months it was brought into the middle schools. In September, 2004, an 8th-grade teacher in Brookline, MA, told National Public Radio that the marriage ruling had opened up the floodgates for teaching homosexuality. “In my mind, I know that, `OK, this is legal now.’ If somebody wants to challenge me, I’ll say, `Give me a break. It’s legal now,’” she told NPR. She added that she now discusses gay sex with her students as explicitly as she desires.  For example, she said she tells the kids that Read the rest of this entry »




Earthships, a new way to build a house

17 10 2008

Last week I stumbled across a very interesting building method.  They are called earthships (or tire houses) and they are awesome.  The outside walls are made from used automobile tires filled with dirt and serve as the load bearing walls.  Interior walls are made from empty cans, bottles and cement.  The south wall is nearly all windows getting lots of sun in the winter and very little in the summer, and the roof catches water to be used throughout the house.  Without heating or cooling systems, these houses remain at a nearly constant temperature (65-75 degrees) while the weather outside can vary from -20 to 100+ degrees.

They are surely the houses of hippies and some look odd, but the ones that are simple (without castle looking additions) are really grabbing my attention, and I wouldn’t mind living in one.  BTW, the name “earthship” was coined because they are built into the earth, and they have the resourcefulness of ships (not needing external help from utilities).





Why can’t we vote online?

14 10 2008

In this day and age, wouldn’t you think that we would be able to register to vote, and then eventually vote online?  Emily says that this is a security risk, but I don’t quite understand the risk.  If, in order to vote online, you need to type in your SSN, birthdate and other information, where is the risk?  If people had that information of yours, wouldn’t you already be at risk of identity theft, fraud, etc?  And if the risk is that hackers could somehow hack the system and steal people’s SSN’s, don’t we have super math genius people (like Dr. Zack) to encrypt this sort of thing?  Surely there is a way to make the process secure.

Wouldn’t online voting bring in more votes thus creating a more accurate representation of the population?  Also, wouldn’t it be much easier to tally and calculate votes (nearly instantly)?  Maybe it is a good thing though that people actually have to make an effort to vote, because if tons of people who didn’t care about politics could easily log-in and vote online, potentially they wouldn’t have a clue of who or what to vote for.

To me it just seems like we would have been able to update the voting system by 2008.  Opinions?





More opinions on Prop 8

9 10 2008

As you know, I am in support of Prop 8.  I have been reading lots of people’s opinions on this subject in their blogs, comments, etc. and I wanted to link you to two posts in particular.  I think that both of these posts are very well written… please take a couple minutes to check them out.

Don’t erase God’s influence!

7 10 2008

This Sunday David Barton came to the Rock Church and was our guest speaker.  He spoke about how the founding fathers of this great nation were nearly ALL devout Christians.  27 of the 56 signers of the Declaration of Independence had seminary degrees!  Take a look at these quotes by dozens of our founding fathers…

There are many people out there that believe and argue that these men were athiests and diests, but looking at quotes (all documented in the endnotes) from these individuals, it is extremely clear that they were Christians.

Currently there is a Read the rest of this entry »





The Fine Line

6 10 2008

Last Wednesday, the Rock Church hosted an informative event about Prop. 8.  If you did not attend that event nor see it live online, I have posted a link to the video below.

The reason our country has been so powerful for so long is because God was blessing this nation.  Our founding fathers (most of them held seminary degrees) created this country with God at the center.  Let’s keep Him there and stand up for Christian morals.

I hope that you will find it informative and will join me in voting “Yes” on Proposition 8.
