Tennessee politics behind the scenes
Just a couple of points worth mentioning. 1) The big "victory" here is that a teacher was allowed to be fired for getting sick because she worked for a religious institution, and thus was exempted from ADA protections.2) The EEOC initiated their petition in favor of the fired teacher in 2007 when Bush was in office, the Obama administration just defended the Bush EEOC's actions in subsequent appeals.Yes, this is a great victory for religious freedom in America! Christians can ditch people when they are sick, where secular institutions couldn't. Huzzah! But yours and Newt's efforts to tie this into a war on Christians by the President don't hold up to the most nominal of scrutiny tests.
Very well said. Glad to see that not everyone here is pushing a narrow religious agenda at the expense of reason, diversity and tolerance.
How refreshing and how welcome it is to hear these words of a man who has the faith and the courage to speak out against the anti-Christian bigotry which plagues our land!Given the right leaders, our country can return to the Christian values our forefathers fought and died for! America is home to people of all religions and ethnic backgrounds, but our country, even our very laws, were built on the truths of the Bible. That is why this nation has always been so great!With the right people in leadership, our country will be able to return to a legal guarantee of the right to life, the most basic of all rights - life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.The hope we need so much for our country will be found only through faith and prayer, through taking the value of life and liberty seriously.
[To Camp4u: Here is something internetwise that came my way. Tim] EMPEROR AND EMPRESS OBAMA The Old Testament has time-proven insights into professional vacationers like the Obamas: Proverbs 19:10 (NIV): "It is not fitting for a fool to live in luxury - how much worse for a slave to rule over princes!" Also Proverbs 30:22 (NIV) which says that the earth cannot bear up under "a servant who becomes king." And Ecclesiastes 5:2-3 (KJV) advises: "let thy words be few...a fool's voice is known by multitude of words." Although Obama is not descended from slaves, he may feel that he's destined to become a black-slavery avenger. Or maybe an enslaver of all free citizens! For some stunning info on Pres. Obama and his fellow traitors, Google "Imam Bloomberg's Sharia Mosque," "Michelle Obama's Allah-day," "Obama Supports Public Depravity," "David Letterman's Hate Etc.," "Un-Americans Fight Franklin Graham" and also "Sandra Bernhard, Larry David, Kathy Griffin, Bill Maher, Joan Rivers, Sarah Silverman." Also Google "Islam will purify Jews and Christians" and "Prof. F. N. Lee's ISLAM IN THE BIBLE [PDF]." Since Christians are commanded to ask God to send severe judgment on persons who commit and support the worst forms of evil (see I Cor. 5 and note "taken away"), Christians everywhere should constantly pray that the Lord will soon "take away" or at least overthrow all US leaders (including subversive, America-hating, Jesus-bashing Hollywood shmucks) who continue to sear their conscience, who dangle every unspeakably filthy vice before young people, and who arrogantly trample the God-given rights of the majority including the rights of the unborn. Do we need a second American Revolution? After the Obamas are kicked out of the White House, there will be no place on earth where they can escape from scowling folks who wish to belatedly express their gratitude, in tangible ways, to the Obamas who tried to destroy the greatest nation ever!
Anonymous above,Our country's laws are NOT based on the Bible, no matter how good it makes you feel to believe they are. Of the 10 Commandments, only two are actual laws (murder, theft) here and in most countries. The other EIGHT aren't even addressed by our nation's laws. See, there was this little thing called the Enlightenment in the 1700's, all across Europe and eventually in the US. It was a secular movement that promoted reason and science, and served as the foundation for the Constitution and our laws far more than the Bible. The other main source was traditional English Common Law, which again is secular (not religious) in nature. Many of our founders weren't even Christian--again it may hurt you to hear this--like Thomas Jefferson...you might want to read what he says about Christianity and its churches. He's not very complimentary. Nor were Thomas Paine, Ben Franklin and quite a few of the other founders. Dream all you want about theocracy taking over in America, but it's not gonna happen...we're becoming MORE religiously diverse, not less...therefore a Christian dominated govt/legal system becomes less likely each day.
