The Left At Christian Universities, Part 6: You can’t post that HERE!

Category: diversity,higher education,left,multi-cultural,politicsharmonicminer @ 1:32 pm

If you missed it or want to read it again, Part 5 of this series is here.

At Pepperdine, students aren’t allowed to post signs announcing meetings that might be critical of Obama. And they have a “Director of Intercultural Affairs” to enforce the rule on 18 yr old freshman Republicans, too. After describing the de facto censorship of the the College Republicans at Pepperdine, Mike Adams delivers this assessment of one of the players:

Obama on Freedom of Choice Act

Category: abortion,Obamaharmonicminer @ 11:46 am

Just in case you had any doubt.

There seem to be a lot of people hoping that they have not been complicit in the death of more babies by voting for Obama.

Continue to pray for a change of heart in Obama, and the people who voted for him knowing his position on abortion and FOCA.

Help fight the Freedom of Choice Act

Category: abortionharmonicminer @ 11:31 am

The Freedom of Choice act has been a topic here before. Here is a website where you can add your voice with a petition to fight it. Read the following, from that site, then click the link for more information.

The Freedom of Choice Act (FOCA) would eliminate every restriction on abortion nationwide.

* FOCA will do away with state laws on parental involvement, on partial birth abortion, and on all other protections.
* FOCA will compel taxpayer funding of abortions.
* FOCA will force faith-based hospitals and healthcare facilities to perform abortions.

Barack Obama believes this legislation will “end the abortion wars.” To him, “ending the abortion wars” means eradicating every state and federal law on abortion — laws that the majority of Americans support.

Americans United for Life (AUL) , a pro-life law and policy organization, has prepared an analysis of the “Freedom of Choice Act.” Please click here to read AUL Vice President & Legal Director Denise Burke’s analysis of this horrendous legislation.

The time to Fight FOCA is now. With Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid in charge of Congress, we can expect a fight over FOCA to begin as soon as the next Congress begins.

Please add your name to the Fight FOCA petition and let your friends know about President-Elect Barack Obama’s promise to expand abortion throughout the country.

And also, please consider making donations to Saxby Chambliss and Norm Coleman, both of whom need financial resources to properly police a recount or get out the vote for a runoff election. Even if you are normally Democrat in your voting, but are a pro-life Christian or Jew, or even if you’re generally pro-choice but think the state laws that exist are just fine, I hope you will pray about whether God actually wants America to pass FOCA, and then act accordingly. These senators are the remaining “required bricks” in the firewall of Senate filibuster, that may be the only chance to stop FOCA.

Negotiating with Islam: Does Obama know this?

Jihad Watch: Raymond Ibrahim: “Islam’s Doctrines of Deception”

To better understand Islam, one must appreciate the thoroughly legalistic nature of the religion. According to sharia (Islamic law) every conceivable human act is categorized as being either forbidden, discouraged, permissible, recommended, or obligatory. “Common sense” or “universal opinion” have little to do with Islam’s notions of right and wrong. All that matters is what do Allah (via the Koran) and his prophet Muhammad (through the Hadith) have to say about any given thing; and how Islam’s greatest theologians and jurists—collectively known as the ulema, literally, the “ones who know”—have articulated it.

Consider the concept of lying. According to sharia, deception in general—based on the Koran’s terminology, also known as “taqiyya”—is not only permitted in certain situations but sometimes “obligatory.” For instance, and quite contrary to Christian tradition, not only are Muslims who must choose between either recanting Islam or being put to death permitted to lie by pretending to have apostatized; but some jurists have decreed that, according to Koran 4:29, Muslims are obligated to lie.

Much, much more at the link, and all worth reading.

UPDATE:  It seems the link above is broken.  I’ll investigate to see if the post was taken down.

UPDATE: The link is still broken. Here is another link by the same author that makes many of the same points.
