On Palm Sunday when most pastors are in church preaching love, peace, and forgiveness, Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton are marching in the streets preaching hate, disobedience, and vengeance. Kind of makes you wonder what their Easter message will be.
Mitt, the means is the end. The way you get there is what will determine what you get when you arrive. No one can serve both God and money. Your early conditioning has warped your priorities. A values clarification is definitely in order. Both Hitler and Mussolini intended to improve the human race. They were not stupid men, but they were extremely ignorant. Please stop the lies and manipulation. They will not make you happier. Happiness will come along only with honesty, complete honesty.
In regards to the East Valley Tribune headline from Friday, Aug. 31, 2012: ‘Rights come from God’: I’m happy that God changed his mind in 1920 and gave women the right to vote. I am certainly going to use my God-given right this year! I encourage all women to vote. Congress is wanting to take our rights away. If that happens, it could be another century plus before God changes his mind again.

It appears that it is the singular attention-grabbing incidents that prevent many from being successfully oblivious to the turmoil that has beset Afghanistan. Reports that Marines were depicted urinating on Afghan corpses rocked the decency of many. The inadvertent burning of Qurans resulted in the Taliban’s killing of over 30 of their countrymen and injuring more. Yet, to date, protests over an Army soldier allegedly shooting 16 Afghan civilians has not provoked protests comparable to those resulting from the burning of the Qurans. Is one to deduce that human life is not as sacrosanct as the Quran?
Tribune softball rankings as of March 5:
The left’s faux outrage over the recent Limbaugh comments are amusing at best and pathetic at worst. When Bill Maher and other “big voices” on the left called Sarah Palin a slut — and worse — those on the left chimed in. Never forget that the leftist doesn’t think in absolute terms of morality or right and wrong. Operating under the concept of moral relativism, whatever furthers the left’s political agenda becomes the truth.
Is religion bad for women? Or do religious resources offer new pathways for connecting women to economic development and the advancement of women's rights?
