This time, they've gone too farWritten by Dianne James
June 23rd, Supreme Court crossed line.
An Associated Press story headline read: "The Supreme Court on Thursday ruled that local governments may seize people’s homes and businesses — even against their will — for private economic development." Please read this, because this decision will set a precedent to usurpe your rights as a property owner. In my opinion, this is completely unconstitutional. I urge you to write to all your lawmakers (links provided at bottom of this page) to express your dismay at this shocking infringement on American people's rights to own and control their own property. Read original amendments below, and please write to your legislators about this. A Supreme Court decision should be based on law, on constitutional rights, and common sense. This one was not. Amendment IV - Search and seizure. Ratified 12/15/1791. The right of people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing place to be searched, and persons or things to be seized.
Amendment XIV - Citizenship rights. Ratified 7/9/1868. 1. All persons born or naturalized in United States, and subject to jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of United States and of State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge privileges or immunities of citizens of United States; nor shall any State deprive [Deprive: deprive v. 1. To take something away from; divest. 2. To keep from possession of something] any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process [Property may be taken by government only for public purposes ] of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction equal protection of laws.
“DAMASCUS WILL CEASE FROM BEING A CITY” ….SYRIA, CATALYST FOR GOG-MAGOGWritten by Doug Krieger
ON THE ROAD TO DAMASCUS
Syria has become a priority target of US/Israeli preemption in War on Terrorism. The recent Mosul homicide bomber only validates Syrian connection, as far as US military strategists are concerned. Our last blog highlighted how neocon policy makers and think tanks (both in America and in Israel) have sought to “deterrorize” region.
The effort at Mideast reconfiguration on part of these strategists has been to defang Saddam Hussein first, thereby encircling Syria; and from thence, to neutralize Iran. Although Israelis have brought Hashemite monarchy into equation (i.e., as a “tribal strategy” after Saddam’s demise for Iraq), that particular “gift to Jordan” may not be necessary, given fact that a “working democracy” is all that matters in Iraq in any event—notwithstanding Osama’s calls for Iraqis to boycott January 2005 elections.
How Syria’s overthrow can be justified by these policy makers was repeatedly demonstrated in last article; so now, as promised, we will discuss Biblical ramifications of equation—and this is part that Left just loves to hate (whereas they most likely enjoyed our initial “secular analysis”); but, we’re not out to please either Left nor Right—we’ll settle for ABSOLUTE TRUTH (don’t you just love that expression—it sounds so final and almost pompous; don’t mean it to be that way, but if you want to take it that way, be our guest).
DETOUR ARTICLE HIGHLIGHTED LIBERAL CONFUSION & BIBLICAL HEREMENEUTICS (i.e., “interpreting methods in Bible Study”)
While taking our excursion down Road to Damascus, we encountered a most troubling and confusing theological phenomenon known as “Augustinian Malaise”—a not so subtle immune deficiency disorder afflicting both Liberal wing of Church (throughout world), as well as Evangelical Dominionists who are “theologically allied” with their Liberal foes. Both wish to reform current governmental social order—whether they wish to admit it or not. At least Evangelical Dominionists (THIS IS AN EXCELLENT SITE) admit it; whilst their erstwhile liberal allies, who abhor anything that bespeaks of inerrancy, denounce their theologically allied Dominionist “compatriots.”
These Liberal foes have no theological idea to whom they are theologically united—instead they abhor barbaric fundamentalists who ascribe to a more Biblical hermeneutical eschatology. These Scofield-Darbyites, along with their total distortions of real Jesus, have been (in “liberalism’s progressive dialect”) a disaster to American Christianity, whereas PROGRESSIVE and, therefore, enlightened Christian Liberalism’s embrace of Augustinian spiritualization of Revelation text, demonstrates real intent of “prophetic Scriptures” which is far and away true spirit of Christianity and its gospel of love and social justice!
