Pat Robertson: Sharon Feels 'God's Wrath': "Christian broadcaster Pat Robertson suggested Thursday that Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon's stroke was divine punishment for 'dividing God's land.'
'God considers this land to be his,' Robertson said on his TV program 'The 700 Club.' 'You read the Bible and he says 'This is my land,' and for any prime minister of Israel who decides he is going to carve it up and give it away, God says, 'No, this is mine.''"


Every time Pat Robertson opens his mouth he adds to the sum total of ignorance in the world. He is like the false prophets in Jeremiah's time, who pretended that they had sat in the counsel of God and knew the mind of God: Jeremiah 23:18: "For who hath stood in the counsel of the LORD, and hath perceived and heard his word? who hath marked his word, and heard it?"

It is certain in general that God will and does judge the world, but true ministers are not so certain about the specific details. When Pat's time comes, what will he be being judged for?

Tuesday, January 03, 2006 - U.S. & World - British Woman Marries Dolphin: "JERUSALEM, Israel - Sharon Tendler met Cindy 15 years ago. She said it was love at first sight. Last week she finally took the plunge and proposed. The lucky 'guy' plunged right back.
In a modest ceremony at Dolphin Reef in the southern Israeli port of Eilat, Tendler, a 41-year-old British citizen, apparently became the world's first person to 'marry' a dolphin."

Well, why not? Love is all that matters, isn't it? One thing about it, though. She won't have to bother with that "love, honor, and obey" stuff, will she?

NY Times 'Stonewalling' on NSA Leak: "New York Times executives are 'stonewalling' on questions about the paper's decision to publish top secret information about the Bush administration's use of the National Security Agency to conduct surveillance operations against terrorists, the paper's public editor charged on Sunday."

Stonewalling? STONEWALLING? The New York Times?

That's what Republican Presidents do, isn't it? Didn't they accuse Reagan of stonewalling on Iran-Contra? Didn't Nixon stonewall on Watergate in those glorious, golden years of Baby-boomerism?

How can it be?

Hey, Old Grey Lady. Times have changed. Liberals cannot get away with lying about Republicans anymore. Some blogger will call your bluff. I know, I know. Bloggers aren't real "journalists." They don't get paid for lying about Republicans. Isn't that what a "journalist" is trained to do.

Telegraph | News | Putin sends a shiver through Europe: "Russia took Europe to the brink of a winter energy crisis yesterday when it carried out a Cold War-style threat and halted gas deliveries to Ukraine, the main conduit for exports to the West."
We should caution Europe, especially Germany and France, from doing anything but talk about this at the U.N. Oil is not worth the life of one French soldier and Europe will just have to show love to Russia, because they must have done something.

Even worse, Putin's quarrel is not even with Europe, but with the Ukraine, who is turning toward the West after the Orange Revolution in 2004. Why should Putin not like that. Does he not like Europe?

France and the other European countries should take some time to do some real heart searching, to try to find out what they have done to make the Russians not like them. They have tried to repent of past colonialism and Christianity, but who knows? Maybe some remnant of elitism or something--maybe riches or something--hm. They should really think about it.

It might be that France was much to harsh on their Islam citizens recently, or maybe not hard enough. Who knows the Russian mind? But they should think about it.
