Bring Back the Republic
April 15, 2009
I just watched a so-called debate between an intelligent, attractive Catholic priest and a smug looking weasel who is supposed to represent a Christian denomination dedicated to the separation of church and state.
This smug looking ferret-faced individual is what is wrong with America and television today. Although, maybe I should not say America and television because the two entities I just mentioned are really one and the same.
But this fellow represents, it seems, the atheist point of view and wants to eradicate Christianity in America. The basis for the confrontation between the priest and the anti-priest was the subject of the University of Notre Dame inviting President Barrack Obama to speak at this year’s Notre Dame commencement.
I have no objection to this being the reason for a television debate. I have no objection to a Catholic priest criticizing the selection, and I do not have an objection to the appearance of someone who is taking the opposite view. However, I do object to someone like the Rev. Barry Lynn being paraded before the camera and the microphone as though he is just someone who wants to state the case for those Americans who may share his view.
Lynn’s organization, it seems to me, exists for the sole purpose of furthering the cause of atheism. He is the executive director of Americans United for Separation of Church and State. When this gentleman appears on a program, we should have truth in broadcasting, and he should be introduced as what he is … an enemy of organized religion!
Now Fox News is only interested in producing controversial programs. I understand that and I salute Fox News because without that intrepid organization we would be left with a total left-wing, socialist, elitist, atheist press.
But I do wish Fox would stop once in awhile being so “fair and balanced!” Well, I am not on a mission to be fair and balanced, therefore let me say I am not surprised but very disappointed that Al Franken has been given the Senate seat in Minnesota.
When I worked in the Midwest many years ago, I learned that most of the radio people from the gopher state, who came down to Chicago, were died-in-the-wool left-wing Democrats. This is another way of saying they were political morons.
So, should I blame Norm Coleman for not waging a more aggressive campaign? Absolutely not. Coleman did quite well considering that Obama, at the head of the jackass ticket, walloped John McCain. So considering the advantage the third rate comedian had, Coleman did amazing well.
And truth be told, I do believe the election was stolen. Now all we can hope for is that Franken destroys himself. There are many things in every single day that can test our patience and almost have us saying, “I give up. I can’t take it anymore.”
But way down deep we know as long as we can draw a breath we will keep fighting and maybe one day a miracle will happen and the majority of the American people will come to their senses. But when and if that day comes, I will not try to be fair and balanced. I will try to be what I have always been . . . an American who believes in bringing back the values that made this Republic great. And if we fight hard enough, we can return America to that pedestal where she once stood.
But if we don’t fight for it, then nothing will matter because this once great Republic will be lost, going the way of the Roman Empire, the glory that was Greece, and all the other nations that no longer exist and no longer matter.
