"Spare Christ this 'my truth your truth' pantheistic Oprah Winfrey slackjawed bullshit"


"If a culture subscribes to the “my truth your truth” line, then what inevitably happens is that the people who have the coercive power in a society begin to impose “their truth” upon everyone else. In other words, whoever has the guns and the power to imprison becomes “god” and sets the standard of “truth” in a society. We are watching this happen right now before our very eyes." -- Ann Barnhardt, On Vomiting and Crazy Eyes (Part 2 ) [No permalinks, scroll down.]

She makes me want to run for cover. Can you guys imagine what it must be like to be married to her? That said, I like her even though I'm pretty sure she'd burn me at the stake if she got the chance.

She's exactly right! It scares me to think how close we are to completely losing it. Another piece on here today referred to Sarah Palin. I think she's the only one who can beat Obama, and I wish she'd come on. The Obama machine is just that... a machine, and they can crank out the votes any way they have to. No photo ID, no address required to vote means illegal votes and the Obamaites know where to find them.

As for Barnhardt's excellent column, if people are so eager to have their "truth", let them pay for the consequences of their own actions. Why do we have to keep paying to clean up the results of their life choices if their "truth" is as good as any other? If "the means" is good, then "the ends" must be good as well...

When abortion officially made people disposable, it devalued humanity. We pay for it in dollars (the welfare state) and in lost souls. Look around you. Where is there positive change in this culture? Proverbs talks about a man too lazy to lift his hand from the bowl to his mouth. We are surrounded by the like. When people don't care about their own children, they don't care about anything. Solid homes mean a solid country. That is truth. I could write a whole column on this, but won't. Most of you could write it as well, so I'll spare us all, and just reiterate: Ann Barnhardt is right.

We're in a lot of trouble....

The amazing thing is that God was willing to throw His only Son into the middle of the mess that is humankind, and The Son agreed. To party and celebrate Christmas without a good dose of appreciation for the true import of that day long ago is to embrace a pretty cheap grace. We need to bear in mind the cost of that single day to both Father and Son, and to be ever grateful for a love like that. It humbling, frightening, and wonderful all at once. And a great responsibility to live up to.

Gerard, thank you for your excellent site! To you and everyone else who passes this way... Merry Christmas. May God truly dwell among us.

I wonder what Ann would have to say about that leetle cartoon you posted the other day, Gerard.

I propose not to wait until you earn enough amount of cash to order goods! You can just take the credit loans or just term loan and feel comfortable
