Clarity in Political Confusion

This is not an endorsement of Rick Perry. It is an endorsement of what he is saying in a couple of new TV ads.

Perry, as you know, is no longer a front runner among GOP candidates. However, the narrative of his new ad should warm the heart of every biblical Christian.

While our culture is drowning in nuance, double speak, cynicism and political correctness; sometimes we hear a voice, perhaps not a loud voice, but a voice, that actually says something.

This is one of those times. It reminds me of a statement made by another follower of Jesus Christ, who once wrote to his friends, "For I am not ashamed of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, for it is the power of God unto salvation."

This may only be a moment of clarity in a politically confused world, but it is refreshingly clear.

Rick Perry on his faith.

  3. I have no problem with Perry's open declaration of his faith. The anti-gay bigotry and uncalled for attack on the brave LGBT American's currently serving our country, do in my opinion disqualify him for the position of commander in chief.

  4. Thanks for sharing the clips Gary. I actually am supporting Rick Perry, and I am not ashamed to say so.

    And I'd like to say respectfully 9:57, that the previous Don't Ask Don't Tell policy did not preclude homosexuals from serving in the military. It simply protected other service members from having to deal with the issue, as a matter of morale.

    As usual, the homosexual agenda is not about being tolerated; it is about being PROMOTED. It always seemed to me that if homosexuals were really so comfortable with what they are doing, they would not need (demand) so much affirmation and approval from others, especially the church.

  5. Van,

    "protected...from having to deal with the issue"?

    Really? I guess I just have a better opinion of our service men and women than you. I don't think that men and women, who are highly trained to protect our freedoms, will having any difficulty in dealing with the fact that some of them are gay and lesbian. A fact borne out by the complete lack of a break down in morale post DADT repeal.

    Seems it me it is anti-gay Christians, who desperately need to see their viewpoint being PROMOTED. It's not enough for them to simply live according to their beliefs, they seek to use the force of government to compel everyone to live as if they shared those beliefs.

  6. There was no problem with morale before DADT was repealed, if it ain't broke don't fix it.

  7. Actually, it was broken. We were expelling very talented and valuable people that we couldn't afford to lose. Nor was it fair to them as individuals.
