    Not that I expect anyone to be persuaded by this, but the fact is that there IS plenty of evidence of the death and resurrection of Jesus: eyewitness accounts that were written down within one lifetime of Jesus’ death; the otherwise inexplicable transformation of the apostles; the experiential evidence of millions.
    I don’t believe God forces belief onto anyone, but I do believe – because I have seen it with my own eyes (i.e. I have experienced it) that if you knock, the door shall be opened; if you ask, you shall receive. No, it is not a magic trick, but a loving God.
    It is interesting to me how atheists will use any perceived contradiction they can find in the Bible (which only really signifies their lack of understanding) as authoritative proof that God does not exist, but will dismiss all of the other accounts that certainly prove the divinity of Christ.
    What I do sincerely thank atheists for is that their challenges have caused me to dig deeper and look at the evidence. This has led me to books such as “King’s Cross” by Timothy Keller, “Mere Christianity” by C.S. Lewis, and “Has Christianity Failed You?” , and “Jesus Among Other Gods” by Ravi Zacharias. It is strengthened and deepened my faith through reason, so I can so much more fully appreciate this God who loves me.

    Imaginary conversation between Richard Dawkins and his daughter.
    Dawkins: Good night, darling… I love you.
    Daughter: That’s a very interesting thought, Daddy. Can you prove that you love me?
    Dawkins:Well, I take care of you, don’t I?
    Daughter: Yes, but there could be many other reasons for that. Also, if you weren’t around, the government would take care of me.. does that mean the government loves me, too?
    Dawkins: Well, I do love you. You’ll just have to take my word for it.
    Daughter: But what IS love?
    Dawkins: Love is a feeling.
    Daughter: Can you prove love exists scientifically? I mean, I have never seen love, have you?
    Dawkins: No, you can’t see love, but you can feel it.
    Daughter: But when people tell you you they feel God, you say they are absurd.
    Dawkins: Go to sleep, darling.

    It’s just like when Rosa Parks stole that city bus to protest having to sit in the back –
    that IS what happened, right?

    You just wait.. there are dozens of Administration insiders who can’t wait to write their books and make millions on what has gone on these past six years. Personally, I won’t buy or read any of them, because I refuse to participate in making these people rich when they COULD have done or said something to save their country.

    Clinton WAS impeached. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Impeachment_of_Bill_Clinton

    He was also acquitted. Do we really need the ‘idiot’ language. How about some civility?

    Need help getting down from that horse? – Just kidding – kind of. I agree with what you wrote (or meant to write – what you actually wrote makes no sense), but singing like that – no band behind you; big stage, etc… is a bit nerve racking. Let’s cut the guy a break.
    And its the Star-Spangled Banner – not Bangled (just sayin’)

    You have to wonder if these people if listen to what they are saying… “This is not a free speech zone.” Are they in the United States of America?

    She is frequently kind
    And she’s suddenly cruel
    She can do as she pleases
    She’s nobody’s fool
    But she can’t be convicted
    She’s earned her degree
    And the most she will do
    Is throw shadows at you
    But she’s always a woman to me,
    …Blame it all on yourself cause she’s always a woman to me.

    About 20 years ago, I could have laughed at this… now I cry – literally. That’s the sound of our country going down the drain.

    I can’t wait for my DirecTV contract to be over (long story about how they lied to me and hooked me in for another 2 years). But when it’s done – GOOD BYE, TV!
    Not that that will solve the problem, but at least I won’t have to deal with it.

    Not so fast…. Professor Peter Singer, (Ira W. DeCamp Professor of Bioethics at Princeton University) would like to disagree! Leftist hero for his progressive views on animal liberation and infanticide, he is considered to be one of the most influential and forward thinking philosophers of our time – at least by a bunch of like-minded atheist morons.) Of course, one hundred years from now, history will say he was right-wing nut job. The right gets all of the insane lefty nut-jobs once the left is done with them. According to the left, it was the Democrats who freed the slaves, and fought for civil rights in the 50′s and 60′s. Even that arse Tourre credited LBJ with the civil rights act (even though it was LBJ who had philibustered the act in congress years before.) To be fair, it WAS Johnson who gave us the Great Society – which re-enslaved urban blacks. Instead of picking cotton, now all they have to do is vote Democrat and the left will give them housing and food. What a life – thanks LBJ!
    With the progressives and liberals, it’s important to remember that up is down; right is wrong; and God is bad.

    To those who say ‘there’s nothing wrong with being gay’ – fine. But, what what’s RIGHT about being gay? I don’t think people should be oppressed for their sexuality, but neither should they be applauded? There is an inherent inconsistency in making heroes out of homosexuals for their sexuality.
    And here’s a newsflash – there is no ‘risk’ to declaring you are a homosexual – you are certain to get an invite to appear on ‘Ellen’, and fawning press coverage. While coming out as a Christian may well cost you your career. Who is the courageous one?

    I’m guessing that Clift will be the next WH Press Secretary, if Clinton is elected.

    The “Tea Party is racist’ thing is just a bunch of BS political crap for the sole purpose of shutting down debate. If you were to ask people about the Tea Party Agenda – they couldn’t recite it; not a single issue. If you were to go issue by issue – without identifying the party – most people would AGREE, and that’s from either party. If a person supports and agrees with Allen West, Michael Steele, Allan Keyes, Thomas Sowell, Walter Williams, and Herman Cain but dislike Obama, Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton – how could any reasonable person make the assumption that the difference is race. It is an idiotic conclusion.

    Do you know what’s more useless than a Moderate Republican? Absolutely nothing.

    I love it when Pelosi uses the word “fair”. I wish I could sue her for the mental anguish it causes me when someone like her (or Harry Reid) – so incredibly unethical….; this sleazy, scheming, partisan dirt bag “demands” fairness. Words cannot adequately express my disgust!

  • April 1, 2014 at 1:35pm

    Yeah – ‘fairness’ is what you’re interested in.
    I have NEVER heard Rush say anything as insensitive as Hilary Clinton’s “I ain’t no ways tired” or Joe Biden’s 7/11 quip – just ‘to be fair’.

    There actually are two reasons why doesn’t endorse candidates. 1) He doesn’t trust them (and neither do I). In the past, he helped a lot of candidates – some of whom threw him under the bus when that was most expedient politically. The second reason is that Rush is aware that his name can be an albatross, and why would he want to handicap his choice?

  • March 7, 2014 at 12:10pm

    Let me add – at least not the militant activist wing of atheism…. my apologies to the many decent atheists out there.

  • March 7, 2014 at 12:09pm

    Thanks for the reminder. Actions such as these are designed to get under the skin of believers, and – as the comments attest – to provoke anger. I have a few good conservative atheist friends and I am sure they also appreciate your post.
