Listen My Children And You Will Hear.Written by Ryan Kelly
All Non-Christians, Liberals, Secularists, and even Christians that do not identify themselves as Fundamentalists, numbering in millions, are targets of an abhorrent and immoral conservative Christian movement. Many conservative Christians like to disassociate themselves from this movement by pointing their judgmental fingers at known religious zealots such as Falwell, Robertson, and Dobson, who are in reality their mouthpieces. Anyone that has experienced zeal of a "born again" Christian immediately understands how committed they are in spreading word. Unfortunately, words they spread are often misguided theology and untruths spewed out by overzealous fundamentalist. The United States is gradually dividing into two sub-cultures: secularism and conservative Christianity. These divisions hold great dangers, because religions tend to be based on an oral or written belief system that is accepted on faith by its believers. Because of origins of religion and way in which they are structured, followers of different religions hold conflicting, irresolvable beliefs concerning deity, humanity, and rest of universe. These beliefs cannot readily be harmonized. Conflicts, hate murders, and genocides are logical result.
I'm concerned that secular side is ill prepared for battle that has begun, and even worst, that many of them can't even conceptualize that there is a battle being waged. If I might reminisce Paul Revere for a moment, one if by government, two if by religion, and three if by a conspiracy of both. I'm wagering my money on three. In common-law fashion, church and state, infatuated by each other's power and wealth, court one another in a manner that is inherently destructive to natural order of our free society. We now have government-sponsored religion. One can only demand that this faith-based initiative be challenged in court soon. I cringe every time I think of taxpayers' dollars going to support Christians' prostelizing agendas. Forcing their morality and religious convictions on a society based on "freedom of religion," they use all tactics to destroy harmony in this great nation. Falwell, in his blasphemous tirade said, "The abortionists have got to bear some burden for this because God will not be mocked. And when we destroy 40 million little innocent babies, we make God mad. I really believe that pagans, and abortionists, and feminists, and gays and lesbians who are actively trying to make that an alternative lifestyle, ACLU, People For American Way, all of them who have tried to secularize America. I point finger in their face and say 'you helped this happen'." Any true liberal that believes in American Dream, with liberty and freedom for all, know that those are fighting words.
Follow The LeaderWritten by The Indy Voice
To lead people, walk beside them ... As for best leaders, people do not notice their existence. The next best, people honor and praise. The next, people fear; and next, people hate ... When best leader's work is done people say, "We did it ourselves!" - Lao-Tzu
Iíve just about had it with all talk surrounding this past election. Look, Iím sorry that people were disenfranchised in Ohio but concentrating on and putting so many resources into problems there is like Republican perpetuated myth of people cheating welfare system. Do people steal from welfare system? You bet they do, but directors of corporations have stolen a hell of lot of money from people and no one is calling for dissolution of corporation. The welfare system effects you financially less than 1 flush of your toilet bowl per year and thatís about same effect that ďirregularitiesĒ in Ohio have had on overall election.
The election is over. The person you voted for lost. Republicans did cheat, thatís what they do and they do it well. They are party of belief that means justify ends. Thatís just another fact of life that your gonna have to get over. Suit up and get back on your pony because now weíre going to battle and itís not just in Ohio. You can either mount up and move on or become what conservatives have been calling you: ďvacillatingĒ or in language of common man ďpussiesĒ.
The first step in process of ďmounting upĒ for battle is too be honest with yourself. Look inside, find shortcomings and work towards remediating them. I have and what Iíve found I donít like. Honestly, John Kerry was not my first choice for a Presidential candidate. For me, he was a compromise that Iím never going to make again. I donít doubt for one second that John Kerry is a good man but he received my vote because I thought him to be most elect-able alternative to Bush. That will not happen again.
Forget all that you think you know about this past election. Itís all B.S.. Come on, do you really think that morals arenít a factor in elections? Who says to them self ďyou know this candidate of ours is just so morally deficient but I donít care, Iím going to vote for him anyway because heís going to get much needed tax code reform passedĒ? Morals are always a factor in elections and yes they are tied in most peopleís minds to their religious beliefs. Big surprise there, huh? People donít vote for leaders strictly for their moral positions or their ideas, they vote for person. Do you want to know what George W. Bush offers people that John Kerry doesnít? CERTAINTY. Yes, you heard right.
For most of you reading this you are going to have a hard time believing what follows. George W. Bush has vision, he has morals, heís decisive and strong and while you may not agree with everything he has to say, you should know that when heís faced with a problem and because he embodies these characteristics, he wonít back down and heís going to do right thing. No, The Indy Voice has not lost all his marbles. This is what people believe. These characteristics are reason why George W. Bush won election and they are shared by all leaders.
