Yes, I am working now.  Even though I still have a great deal of pain I decided that I would give going back to work part-time a try.  Part of the reason I’m working is so I am able to get to Florida to be with my husband. I have been working as a home health aide for nearly two months now. I like my job.  I enjoy helping others in need. I really do think God has given me the grace to work with all the pain I have been experiencing. As much as I was praying for the Supreme Court’s decisions on the gay marriage and Obamacare cases to be different I wasn’t surprised by the rulings.  Eric Erickson in his latest article Mass Hysteria in America points out how in today’s times “Up is down. Down is up. Good is evil. Evil is good. Wrong is right, and right is wrong.”  He asks, Are you going to be ready to rebuild after the fires burn out?  The fight isn’t over.  We need to keep fighting for religious liberty rights. Charlie Daniels penned an open letter to President Obama. His message is loud and clear. It is a must read.

Happy Independence Day!!!

In honor of it being July 4 here is a poem on ‘The Republic’ from Henry Wadsworth Longfellow


Thou, too, sail on, O Ship of State!
Sail on, O UNION, strong and great
Humanity with all its fears,
With all the hopes of future years,
Is hanging breathless on thy fate!
We know what Master laid thy keel,
What Workmen wrought thy ribs of steel,
Who made each mast, and sail, and rope,
What anvils rang, what hammers beat,
In what a forge and what a heat
Were shaped the anchors of thy hope!
Fear not each sudden sound and shock,
’T is of the wave and not the ro
’T is but the flapping of the sail,
And not a rent made by the gale!
In spite of rock and tempest’s roar,
In spite of false lights on the shore,
Sail on, nor fear to breast the sea!
Our hearts, our hopes, are all with thee,
Our hearts, our hopes, our prayers, our tears,
Our faith triumphant o’er our fears,
Are all with thee,—are all with thee

Hope you have a happy and safe time celebrating Independence Day.

Teenager Vincent Parker, 16-years old, had his iPod taken away by his parents.  Vincent was furious.  He became unhinged and bludgeoned his parents with a long list of objects in the house.  Except a gun.  Killing over an iPod?  Our society has become excuse ridden, irresponsible, and morals are lacking.  Parents have failed to teach their kids certain values that were taught to previous generations, such as respecting your elders.  Is this the result of progressive beliefs and/or policies?  Kevin Jackson of The Black Sphere would answer yes to that question.  Is this the result of a ‘me me me culture’?  Is this the result of  society breeding  individuals so that immediate gratification is built into their psyches?  Today this is the norm and not the exception.  Violence is on the rise among youth to individuals in their twenties and I believe that this is society’s own making.

Glenn Beck claims that we are fighting evil in the United States. Evil of Islamofascism.  Evil of Communists.  Evil of Socialism.  Evil of immorality. Evil of tyranny. Evil of chaos.  Evil of Obamacare. There is definitely evil within Obamacare.  The HHS mandate is one element that is evil. That garbage needs to be repealed or defunded.  He says that we aren’t fighting either the Democrats or President Obama, but in fact we are fighting evil forces.  I’m sure this can be applicable to Canada and a number of other nations.  Do you think that we are fighting evil?  I do.  May we all wear the armor of God as we fight against Satan and all his evil works.  God Bless.

Ephesians 6: 10-18

10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 11 Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. 12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. 13 Therefore put on the full armor of God,so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. 14 Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, 15 and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. 16 In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 17 Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.

18 And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.

Is there still a “war on terror”?  President Obama has given mixed messages on this.  A couple weeks ago the President declared the “War On Terror” over.   The Obama administration called the shooting at Ft. Hood “workplace violence” even though Hasan yelled Allahu Akbar before going on his shooting rampage at the military base. Nidal Hasan plans to argue that the shooting was in defense of the Taliban. Sound like terrorism, anyone? From the beginning the Obama administration has renamed the “Global War On Terror” Overseas Contingency Operations.  I guess the peace prize president didn’t want to sound warlike. Or something like that.  On the other hand President Obama sent drones overseas to pick off terrorists, among them were four Americans.

Now we have a huge NSA leak which revealed spying on the American people on a massive scale.  Is the guy who leaked this information a traitor or a patriot?  If the spying domestically on this massive scale violates our privacy rights and is unjust then I consider the guy to be a patriot.  Now citizens can have an important conversation as to security versus privacy, and how much of our privacy should we be willing to give up for national security purposes.  If the “war on terror” is over why has Obama doubled down on and expanded Bush’s policies?

The trustees have chosen a new president to succeed Fr. Terence Henry at Franciscan University of Steubenville.  His name is Father Sean Sheridan.  He has a strong legal background which will help in the fight against the unjust HHS mandate which does not respect conscience rights or citizens’ religious liberty.

“I am honored to serve as the next president of Franciscan University,” Father Sheridan said in a statement. “It is inspiring and truly humbling for me to be here at Franciscan University with the students who are pouring their hearts into their education and their prayer life, falling in love with God and the Church and striving to become saints.”

Here is a little bit about Father Sheridan’s credentials:

Father Sheridan entered the Franciscan Third Order Regular in 2000, leaving behind a career as an attorney focused on health-care litigation. He made his solemn profession of vows in 2005 and was ordained to the priesthood the following year. Father Sheridan continued his legal education in the Church, earning a doctorate in canon law from Catholic University of America in 2009. He wrote his dissertation addressing seven challenges — and potential solutions — to implementing Ex Corde Ecclesiae (From the Heart of the Church), Pope John Paul II’s 1992 apostolic constitution for Catholic higher education.

Father Sheridan served as an assistant professor of canon law at CUA from 2009 until last fall, when he became a professor in Franciscan University’s theology department.

“He’s got the right mix of academic, pastoral and professional experience,” Hernon said. “He’s got the mission of the university in his heart, and he wears it on his sleeve. We know he’s going to continue to see how the university can respond to the call St. Francis received from Christ, to ‘Go, rebuild my Church.’”

We have a story of authentic courage of someone who has stuck by their beliefs even among pressure in these ever changing times of what our culture deems as acceptable.  Chris Broussard is the ESPN analyst who was asked to comment on on the NBA basketball player Jason Collins who announced that he is gay for all the world to hear.  Broussard said that homosexuality is a sin. He went onto say:

“If you’re openly living in unrepentant sin, whatever that may be,” including heterosexual sex outside of marriage, you are “walking in open rebellion to God and to Jesus Christ.”

Instead of being respectful and tolerant of his point of view some people have taken to twitter to call for ESPN to fire Chris Broussard.

It looks like the Southern Poverty Law Center has some explaining to do.  It appears that the SPLC influenced a domestic terrorist attack by labeling the Family Research Council as a “hate” group.  Seeing this information on the SPLC’s website spurred Floyd Lee Corkins to shoot at innocent workers at the Washington-based Family Research Center. Corkins has pleaded guilty to a charge of domestic terrorism and will be charged in June. Lives were spared as a result of the heroic actions of Leonardo Johnson, the security guard/building manager. 

Apparently religious freedom for Christians in the military will not be tolerated.  Here our military men and women are fighting to protect our freedoms which are outlined in the Constitution and yet their rights won’t be protected while serving.  Geesh! This is disgraceful. Totally unconscionable!  

From ChristianPost: 

President Obama’s new “religious tolerance” consultant to the Pentagon, Mikey Weinstein, wants Christian military service members who openly talk about their faith in uniform to be charged with treason, which is a crime punishable by death according to military law.

By employing his consulting services, and as Commander-in-Chief, President Obama is effectively endorsing Weinstein’s recently voiced and written views such as: “Today, we face incredibly well-funded gangs of fundamentalist Christian monsters who terrorize their fellow Americans by forcing their weaponized [sic] and twisted version of Christianity upon their helpless subordinates in our nation’s armed forces.”

President Obama is someone who claims that he is a Christian.  If he is a Christian why would he employ a “religious tolerant” consultant that calls Christians “monsters who terrorize their fellow Americans”?  By “fundamentalist” does Weinstein mean, actually follows the Bible and adheres to timeless biblical truths?  So I guess he thinks modernism and moral relativism “true Christianity”?  This administration has been the most hostile to Christians (traditional Christians) in recent modern history.  This is not only intolerance but is persecutory in nature. And some people wonder why we a number of say that Obama is shredding the Constitution. It is obvious that he has no respect for the Constitution or citizens’ rights.  He acts as if he were king.  I do pray for his conversion of heart and soul.  

Israeli President Shimon Perez has invited Pope Francis to visit Israel.  Pope Francis has accepted the invitation “with willingness and joy” .  No date has been set for the visit. 

A Vatican statement said they discussed prospects for a resumption of negotiations for a solution that would respect “the legitimate aspirations of the two Peoples, thus decisively contributing to the peace and stability of the region.”
