Must Speak Up On Behalf of Phil Roberts

Phil was interviewed by GQ magazine.He was asked his religious beliefs.He spelled it out for them.

Phil is not a theologian nor does he need to be. What he said is true. What is also true is that he has freedom of speech and religion.I may have explained a little differently than Phil but that’s not the point. The point is sexual relations between people of the same gender is a sin. In fact any sex before marriage is considered a sin(Phil did mention fornication)as is sex outside of marriage(adultery). This is not news to anyone who has some knowledge of what Christianity teaches.Most people know don’t they?

You can get an interview and defend homosexual relations but you can’t give an interview and speak out against it? Nope.Sorry.Doesn’t work that way.

 

 

Veterans Benefits

Some of the Republicans and enough Democrats voted to pass the recent bill worked out by Paul Ryan and Patty Murray.Had they not done this the government would have shut down again.The American people-that’s us-would have been furious and blamed the Republicans. IF the American people-all of us-were willing to stand up and support a government shut down THEN the Republicans could have rejected the bill.We keep putting these people in between a rock and hard place.They are damned if they do and damned if they don’t.They lost years ago and big time because of a previous gov’t shut down for which they got blamed. It will always be that way unless the American people are willing to get behind it.

Now if they hadn’t signed on we’d be talking about the government shut down-their loss in 2014 and more progressives in Congress than you can shake a stick at.

The last shut down cost Ken Cunicelli the Va win. The only reason he came close is Obamacare hit at about the same time.The shutdown hurt him big time. He recovered enough to come close,but not close enough.i don’t know about anyone else but i don’t care to see the Democrats sweep the House and Senate in 2014 giving Obama even more unbridled power.

The next time around all you can do is hope the American people would get on board and support these people but they seldom do.They give them the boot and we end up with more Dems.

Also, i would definitely vote for Mitt Romney IF he were to run again.I did the last time.I would do so again in 2016. For now,am supporting Allen West as my 2nd best choice and first if Romney doesn’t try.

Later,i’d like to talk about that Romney loss. Should have won.

I’m sure Congress will do a fix for veterans benefits-there is no way on earth they can give to illegal immigrants  when it should be going to people who have sacrificed life and limb for our country. Now that is where i’d be raising cain and make sure they get it corrected.

( A Few Words)Pope Francis

I wanted to continue the topic on Pope Francis and the recent briar patch he seems to have gotten into.Or at least the one the rest of us have gotten into. One side seems to be making some claim that he’s a socialist(Marxist)and he’s attacking capitalism.The last i knew Jesus was neither a socialist,Marxist or capitalist and think it’s pretty safe to assume that’s where Pope Francis lands on this one.

My menneire’s is acting up a tad of late; to the point it’s probably better I spent more time laying down than i do sitting up. I just wanted to mention the topic has not been left out here dangling.Intend to wrap it up.Will get back here asap.Have a number of other topics in mind too,swirling around there.

BTW.The turtles we made for Christmas.Let’s sum it up this way.We’re going to change the recipe we used a tad then we’ll post it.They did not turn out and ended up in the garbage.

The icing is still good and  we have enough cookies left to give out. That i can post.

We’re going to do a few cards tonight too.Hubby went to Dr (again)out of town so i don’t plan to do a thing until he gets back.Better to take it easy for now.

I have no meds.Sleep or at least rest is the best way to cope.

Could be worse. I’m just tickled pink when i am up to getting a blog entry done and the housework.

Matheson’s exit gives GOP’s Mia Love an opening for Utah congressional seat | Fox News

Utah Republican Mia Love stole the show at last year’s GOP convention, then narrowly lost her bid weeks later to unseat Democratic Rep. Jim Matheson.

The Saratoga Springs mayor’s prospects of winning that House seat in 2014 sharply improved Tuesday, though, when Matheson said he won’t seek an eighth term — allowing her to face a non-incumbent in a state where Mitt Romney won by 72 percent of the vote.

Washington Republicans gushed over Matheson’s announcement and characterized it as a red flag for other Democratic incumbents in the age of ObamaCare.

“It’s telling that Matheson, who didn’t even vote for ObamaCare’s original passage, knows he can’t run and win in this climate,” said Oregon Rep. Greg Walden, chairman of the National Republican Congressional Committee. “If it’s this bad for him, imagine how bad 2014 will be for the vast majority of Democrats who actually supported ObamaCare from its start.”

NRCC officials even went so far as saying Matheson’s departure gives their party such a clear path to victory in Utah’s Fourth Congressional District seat that they can spend their money elsewhere on tighter races.

On Wednesday, however, the group stuck to its policy of not endorsing a candidate in a party primary. A spokesman told FoxNews.com only that Love, who if elected would become the GOP’s first black congresswoman, is part of its 2014 recruiting class, known as the Young Guns.

Beyond running in a strong Republican-leaning district, Love already has raised at least $475,000 and has an established campaign. She captured the imagination of Republican Party members with her Tampa convention speech, with such notable lines as “Mr. President I am here to tell you we are not buying what you are selling” and “This is our story. This is the America we know because we built it.”

However, critics say Love has to avoid several potential pitfalls that snagged her last year, including by mounting a better campaign, closing the door this time on a third-party candidate and (like fellow Republicans) finding a way to win more of the Hispanic vote.

“Mia Love has a straight shot to Congress now,” said Tyler Harber, a Republican strategist with the international strategy firm Harden Global. “She’s smart, worldly and interested in focusing on solving problems. … Her loss in 2012 had more to do with a disorganized, amateurish campaign than with the candidate or message. Our failure to take Matheson’s seat in 2012 should stand as a demonstration that campaign do, in fact, matter.”

Harber also said he understands Love is working with operatives for seven-term Utah GOP Sen. Orrin Hatch and now has a team that includes Paul Hatch, formerly of the Republican National Committee.

Matheson won 71 percent of the Hispanic vote, compared with 27 percent for Love, according to a Brigham Young University study.

And Libertarian candidate Jim Vein took 2.6 percent of the vote in 2012. Matheson defeated Love by just 49.34 to 48.06 percent.

Love responded to the news of Matheson’s retirement by praising his years of public service, but suggested her strategy remains the same.

“It doesn\’t change our strategy,” she told Fox News. \”We\’re going to work to win every single vote.\”

Matheson, among the few remaining Blue Dogs, or Democrats in conservative districts who occasionally vote with their rival party, in May voted with 227 House Republicans to repeal ObamaCare.

No Democrat has stepped forward so far to run for Matheson’s open seat, and whether the party can find somebody to seriously challenge the Republican candidate is still uncertain.

“It’s too early to say and too early to know,” Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee spokeswoman Emily Bittner told FoxNews.com. “It’s very, very early.”

Common Sense

1. Girls should use the girl’s bathroom.Boys should use the boys.

2. Phil Roberts exercised his right of free speech and explained his religious beliefs. He is not a theologian-nor does he have to be.

3. Mistakes are mistakes.Sins are sins. Christian believe in sin.We should not be afraid to use the word anymore. There is a moral good and a moral evil.

4. There’s no reason to remove a nativity scene during Christmas or a cross at a memorial site. NONE.

5. Christians do not want a theocracy just because they expect  a moral order. It’s a lot better for everyone if we accept that murder,theft and other acts are wrong.

6. Progressives ban all sorts of things that curtail our freedoms and don’t think twice.It’s the real theocracy.It’s worship at the altar of the state.

7. We’ve educated ourselves into stupidity. What happened to common sense?
