Pastor preaches hate

I’m really disappointed when pastors stand up and preach hate. The Bible is a huge book. There is a lot of information in the Bible. There are stories about every human failing – greed, incest, envy and many more. There are stories about murder. There are stories about rage. But, when you stand back and try and look at what the Bible is telling us, the Bible is about love. The Bible is about our love for God. The Bible is about God’s love for us and about our love for each other. This is simple. This is Christianity 101. Maybe Pastor Charles L. Worley simply skipped that class.

Do you have an answer for Rep. Franks?

Rep. Trent Franks (R-AZ) — one of the most conservative members of Congress, according to a new National Journal ranking — decried the strained state of political discourse in an interview today with blogger-activist Mike Stark. While defending hate radio host Rush Limbaugh, Franks said bipartisanship and “true tolerance” is about “being halfway decent to each other in spite of the differences.” But when the conversation turned to abortion, Franks made a clearly indecent comment, claiming that African-Americans were probably better off under slavery than they are today:

FRANK: In this country, we had slavery for God knows how long. And now we look back on it and we say “How brave were they? What was the matter with them? You know, I can’t believe, you know, four million slaves. This is incredible.” And we’re right, we’re right. We should look back on that with criticism. It is a crushing mark on America’s soul. And yet today, half of all black children are aborted. Half of all black children are aborted.Far more of the African-American community is being devastated by the policies of today than were being devastated by policies of slavery. And I think, What does it take to get us to wake up?

(Ed. I will clean up this video later.)

Jenny Sanford shows the Governor the door

I’m sorry, but I can’t blame her. He’s been a piece of sh work. I’m still not sure how the South Carolina legislature couldn’t find the will to impeach this guy.

From the War Room:

Earlier this week, South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford got some good news — he’s almost certain to escape impeachment. Unfortunately, the week didn’t end as well; his wife, Jenny Sanford, has announced that she’s filing for divorce.

“[T]he dissolution of any marriage is a sad and painful process,” Jenny Sanford said in a statement. “This came after many unsuccessful efforts at reconciliation, yet I am still dedicated to keeping the process that lies ahead peaceful for our family. I remain thankful to so many across this state and nation for their words of encouragement and prayers during this difficult time. Please know the boys and I are doing well and are blessed with the incredible support of friends and family and bolstered by our faith and the unfailing love of our God above.”

Just a couple days ago, Gov. Sanford had said he still hoped to reconcile. The couple had been living apart since the governor announced early this summer that he’d been having an affair with an Argentine woman.
