Uniting Behind the 2014 U. S. Olympic Team

2014 Winter Olympics_U S

I pray for victory for the 2014 U. S. Winter Olympic team. I know of at least one gold medal for our country so far. The Olympics usually bring us differing political types together. I am hitting the like button and making very positive comments on my Democratic Facebook friend’s page to her very pro U. S. Olympic links. We are pro gold for our country’s team. God bless them!

Taqiyah and Then Accountability From Who!

Chip Bok Cartoon

The accidental Quran burning brought out the true hearts of some Afghans working with the U. S. Military. The killers of the 6 American were American trained and trusted Afghan soldiers, a security official and a civilian instructor. I guess the practice of taqiyah (There is more than one spelling of this word) is in play.

As I look at this Chip Book cartoon, it angers me that the UN Special Representative Jan Kubis is calling for accountability and punishment for those involved in the Quran incident. What is going on in the mind of this man who is not so interested in accountability from those who killed 6 Americans and 30 others over an accidental burning of the already desecrated copies of the Quran?

Two Responses to the Accidental Quran Burning Apologies

Are you upset with the unaccepted apologies made over the accidental Quran burning in Afghanistan? The results of the  apologies from Pres. Obama,  Gen. John Allen and Pentagon Official, Dr. Peter Lavoy is ongoing rioting, the deaths of 2 American soldiers and the wounding of 4 other soldiers by an Afghan soldier this past Thursday. Oh! As I am doing this post, I am hearing news reports of the deaths of 2 American advisers in Kabul. Obviously there is a strong Afghan Muslim unforgivable position on accidental Quran burning.

Well, here is another apology from citizen Kira Davis. She is good. This is the best!

 

Now go here to hear Newt Gingrich’s EXCELLENT response to Piers Morgan. If you are on the side of not caring too much for the former Speaker of the House, this should change your mind in the affirmative. You have to give Newt Gingrich some love for his response.

Yes, Afghanistan should be giving out a ton of apologies. I am so thankful that I was not born in that country or a country that remotely resembles it.

Remember to Pray for Persecuted Christians

This is a repost (with a few tweaks) from my former blog.

During your Easter/Resurrection holiday celebration, do not forget to pray for people in other lands who experience persecution for making Jesus Christ their Savior. Here in this wonderful country, we take much for granted, such as our Christian freedoms. Think about the bibles in American homes that collect dust! A few weeks ago I heard a missionary share that in Vietnam where there is strong ancestral worship, there are not many bibles. In fact there is sharing of bibles that are totally hand written.

I have heard the name of Christ defamed.  I have been called  snide names to my face and much more behind my back, because of my identification with the Lord Jesus Christ! But that is no big deal in comparing and contrasting what Christians go through in Islamic countries and other countries where Christianity is officially castigated or even forbidden.  Some people in other parts of the world experience denied medical treatment, being hunted down like an animal, face life imprisonment, or have even be executed because they accepted Jesus Christ as Savior. I have never feared any of that happening to me as a Christian in this country.
