A VOICE OF REASON

THE POLITICIANS OF TODAY ARE THE DICTATORS OF TOMORROW

THE POLITICIANS OF TODAY ARE THE DICTATORS OF TOMORROW.

THIS IS THE POLITICIAN’S TRUE APPEARANCE

“Just 5 months into our time here, we’ve already been able to cut over half a billion $$$ from the UN peacekeeping budget & we’re only getting started.”

EVIDENCE AGAINST THE ZIONIST STATE

HISTORICAL VOICE

WHAT’S WRONG WITH THIS PICTURE?

While Dylann Roof resides in a room without a view at the Terre Haute Federal Prison, Nikki Haley resides in a suite with this view, on the 42nd floor of the Waldorf Astoria New York.

Dylann Roof has begun serving nine consecutive life sentences for the nine lives he viciously took on June 17, 2015.  

Meanwhile, Nikki Haley is serving herself as the U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, and living it up in Manhattan–for her exploitation of the mass murder committed by Dylann Roof.

What’s wrong with this picture?

DOES GOD EXPECT US TO DO GOD’S WORK?

The Creator of this conceivably infinite universe–indeed, conceivably, an infinity of infinite universes–is perceived by us as Yahweh, God, Allah, the Great Spirit, and numerous other names, including the Creator.

And the Creator is perceived by us as masculine, feminine, or neuter (he, she, or it), or none of these–or all of these.

Yet in most English-speaking countries, including the United States, the Creator is most often perceived of as God, and as masculine.

Many of us are averse to using the name, God, though they need not be–it’s just a name.

And many of us claim that there is no God (just as many of us claim that God belongs to them–that God favors them, or their group, above all others, or all other groups).

Those of us who claim that there is no God usually point to the apparent absence of God’s intervention in human affairs–indeed in this universe, at all–as evidence that there is no God.

Yet the possibility that God chooses not to intervene–that God sees the truth, but waits–doesn’t occur to them (i.e. they consider themselves atheists, when they can more accurately consider themselves deists).

Many of us believe that God intervenes in all human affairs–indeed that God intervenes in every individual aspect of any, or every, individual human being’s life.

Some of these tend to praise God for everything that goes well in their lives–but blame themselves, others, or no one, for everything that goes badly in their lives.

Others of these tend to praise themselves, others, or no one, for everything that goes well in their lives–but blame God for everything that goes badly in their lives.

Those of us who believe that God chooses not to intervene–that God sees the truth, but waits–can avoid the dilemmas faced by those of us who believe the reverse.

Yet we cannot avoid the question why.

If God chooses not to intervene in human affairs–indeed in this universe, at all–why?

Is God indifferent to us?

Is God unaware of us?

Or is God totally interested in us, totally aware of us–yet expecting us to act as God in this universe?

Does God expect us to do God’s work?

RESIST GOVERNMENT-IMPOSED CENSORSHIP, OR DON’T RESIST IT

WEAR news has stories about the controversy over the Bayview Park Cross every night, lately.  So many people are furious that this cross is slated to be censored.

But these same people said nothing when the First Confederate Flag was censored from our Five-Flags displays, without our consent–and they still say nothing about this government-imposed censorship of our Five-Flags displays.

When your First-Amendment right to freedom of speech is violated, you can’t pick and choose.  If you say nothing about the First Confederate Flag being censored, without your consent, because you have a negative opinion of this flag, or because you have no opinion of this flag–you have no business complaining about this cross being censored, without your consent.

If your right to freedom of speech is violated by politicians engaging in government-imposed censorship, your opinion of what is censored doesn’t matter. What matters is that your right to freedom of speech is violated.

You can’t pick and choose–stand up for your First-Amendment right to freedom of speech, or don’t stand up for it.

Resist government-imposed censorship, or don’t resist it.

WHY DON’T THESE?

A WORD TO SOUTHERN AMERICANS

Nothing in this world is ever simple, no matter how much we’d like it to be. Everything in this world is always complex–and often complicated.

The past is never simple–it’s always complex.

The antebellum period in our country’s past is complex.  The War between the Confederate States of America and the United States of America is complex. And the aftermath of that War is complex.

When we allow politicians to censor flags and monuments representative of our country’s past, especially without our consent, we deny ourselves any understanding of our country’s past–in all its complexity.

Likewise, the present is never simple–it’s always complex.

The crisis in the Middle East is complex.  The Israel of today is not the Israel of Biblical times–and its establishment in 1948, as well as its continuing expansion, is the primary cause of the crisis in the Middle East.  Our federal government’s overwhelming support of the modern state of Israel is hurting the American people, as well as the Palestinian people.

When we accept our federal government’s overwhelming support of the modern state of Israel, especially without questioning it, we deny ourselves any understanding of the crisis in the Middle East–in all its complexity.

Nothing in this world is ever simple, no matter how much we’d like it to be. Everything in this world is always complex–and often complicated.
