The United States Senate will vote tomorrow (September 21) on a bill to overturn the current “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” law that prohibits homosexuals from serving openly in the U.S. military.

If passed, this bill … will be devastating for military readiness, retention, and recruitment.—American Family Association

Conservative officers and chaplains who believe that homosexual conduct is a sin, or think that homosexual conduct should not be promoted in the armed forces will be forced out of the military.  

“[P]eople opposing this new policy will need to get with the program, and if they can’t, they need to get out.”—Lt. Gen. Thomas P. Bostick, deputy chief of staff in charge of personnel for the U.S. Army

The bill will also transform every U.S. military hospital in the world into abortion clinics, and will guarantee amnesty and a path to citizenship for some illegal aliens.

The ten quotations below were made by either Democrat Jimmy Carter (39th President of the United States and history’s greatest monster) or Christine O’Donnell (Republican candidate opposing Delaware’s self-described “bearded Marxist” for the U.S. Senate).

The Christine O’Donnell/Jimmy Carter Quiz

Who said each of the following quotes:  Jimmy Carter, or Christine O’Donnell?

1. “To my amazement, I was besieged with questions about my sex life. At first I thought this was just a passing joke, but I was wrong. It became the dominant news story of my candidacy, and my popularity dropped precipitously. Any attempt to explain the Christian theology behind my answer only served to keep the issue alive.”

2. “I have an absolute, total commitment as a human being, as an American, as a religious person to Israel … Israel is the fulfillment of biblical prophecy.”

3. “Feeling a bit presumptuous, I wrote to [an evolutionary scientist] disagreeing with this premise and asserting that there were factors other than pure happenstance that influenced the course of evolution.”

4. “Because I’m just human and I’m tempted and Christ set some almost impossible standards for us. The Bible says, ‘Thou shalt not commit adultery.’ Christ said, ‘I tell you that anyone who looks on a woman with lust has in his heart already committed adultery.’ I’ve looked on a lot of women with lust. I’ve committed adultery in my heart many times…. This is something that God recognizes, that I will do and have done, and God forgives me for it. But that doesn’t mean that I condemn someone who not only looks on a woman with lust but who leaves his wife and shacks up with somebody out of wedlock. Christ says, don’t consider yourself better than someone else because one guy screws a whole bunch of women while the other guy is loyal to his wife. The guy who’s loyal to his wife ought not to be condescending or proud because of the relative degree of sinfulness.”

5. “This set of principles, rooted in my Christian faith, has both shaped me and been shaped by my personal experiences, and it remains to this day a central element of my identity.”

6. (Quote from someone commenting about the candidate running for office) “It is not presumptuous to say, as there is enough evidence already, that a vast number of [O’Donnell or Carter] supporters consist of aggressive evangelicals whose main goal is to ‘Christianize’ our country; that is to say, to convert Americans to a particular brand of religious obscurantism. Needless to say, most, or many [O’Donnell/Carter]-fundamentalists despise complete intellectual and religious liberty.”

7. “Being born again is a new life, not of perfection but of striving, stretching, and searching — a life of intimacy with God through the Holy Spirit.”

8. “But if we aspire to grow as human beings, we should struggle to close the gap by making our inner selves truer reflections of our own highest values, which, for me, grow from my Christian faith.”

9. “…There are basic principles that, for me, have never changed. For a Christian, the life and teachings of Jesus offer a sound moral foundation that includes all the most basic elements that should guide us.”

10. “Yes, I have my personal beliefs, and these questions come from statements I made over fifteen years ago. I was in my twenties, and very excited and passionate about my new-found faith. But I assure you my faith has matured, and when I go to Washington, D.C., it’ll be the Constitution on which I base all of my decisions, not my personal beliefs.”

The National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund has chosen to endorse leftist Democrat Representative Betsy Markey for re-election in Colorado this November. The rub is the NRA Political Victory Fund gave Cory Gardner, Markey’s Republican challenger, an A+ rating, yet chose to endorse Markey.

Once again the NRA bites the hand that feeds it to support a candidate from the party whose primary goal is the destruction of the country and its Constitution. Markey joined the Bart Stupak (D-MI) contingent who voted against ObamaCare before they voted for it. She also voted for the stimulus and cap and trade bills. Yet NRA Chief Lobbyist Chris Cox insists that Markey is trustworthy to defend the Second Amendment rights of Colorado gun owners.

On the stimulus, on cap-and-trade, on ObamaCare, Dembots who were called to fall upon the sword did so. And Markey, like Bart Stupak, fell on the sword for ObamaCare when Pelosi demanded they do so. If she can’t be trusted to stay the course on something as unconstitutional as ObamaCare, how can she be trusted to stay the course on the Second Amendment?

Face it! Like the Democrat Party, the NRA is merely a shell of its former self. Its board has been compromised by statist-minded progressives who are doing damage control to keep Democrats in power and undermine Republican efforts from winning majorities in Congress.

Patriotic Americans have no good reason to support or belong to the NRA any longer. There are good alternative organizations that will do more to protect the Second Amendment and uphold the Constitution than this once great organization.

According Markey’s campaign, the NRA has about 11,000 members in Markey’s 4th Congressional District. If those members don’t want to be a party to the destruction of America, they’ll stop their support and cancel their memberships in the NRA and send that money to Cory Gardner for Congress to uphold the Second Amendment.

The Los Angeles Department of Public Works spent $70 million in stimulus funds; it created seven private sector jobs and saved seven workers from layoffs. Each job cost the taxpayer $1.5 million.

“I would say maybe in a grade, a B- in creating the jobs.”—Wendy Greuel, city controller

Mullah Obama, dimwitted Joe Biden, dirty Harry Reid, and nitwitted Nancy Pelosi say the economy is on track and the $800 billion stimulus is working.

To hasten America’s destruction, be sure to vote Democrat this November.

A study in the Journal of Medical Ethics finds that doctors who are atheist or agnostic are two times more likely to hasten the death of terminally-ill patients than doctors with deeply held religious beliefs.

Clive Seale, a professor at the centre for health sciences at Barts and the London school of medicine and dentistry, surveyed doctors in specialities likely to care for people at the end of life, such as neurology, elderly and palliative care, and general practice.

If I were a patient facing end of life care, I would want to know what my doctor’s views were on religious matters – whether they are non-religious or religious and whether the doctor felt that would influence them in the kinds of decisions they were looking at.”—Professor Clive Seale
