Kool Aid For Sale

As summer approaches, we will begin to see kids setting up their Kool Aid stands in the neighborhood. You can buy a cool drink for 5 cents to 50 cents and support the kids in their enterprise.

However there is another younger man who has already set his Kool Aid stand at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue and his drinks are beginning to create some nausea.

His emerging low view of Christianity and scandalous use of the people's money is causing some a great deal of concern, while others seem content to continue to drink deeply from his cup.

Robert Knight, a senior writer for Coral Ridge Ministries and a Senior Fellow with the American Civil Rights Union, has written a penetrating column titled, "Obama Nation's Low View of Christianity". He isn't buying the Kool Aid.

He carefully notes Obama's comments about Christianity beginning back in a speech he gave in Washington DC in 2006, through his comments in Turkey, France and Cairo. He points out that Obama distorted Jesus' Sermon on the Mount, mocked the Bible's relevance for politics, accused the Christian Right of exploiting what divides us and has said that Scripture is still being "edited". He points to Obama's appointees and nominees as a snapshot of what he really believes and where he really stands on Christianity.

Knight concludes, "More odd things have been happening since Obama's election that should give pause to even the most cynical observers."

Knight says, "If diversity in and of itself is god, where does that leave Jesus Christ...?"

I strongly recommend you read his column.

Newt Gingrich is not drinking it either. He is concerned and thinks others should be as well. In his article, "Once, We Would Have Called It A Scandal," he says, "In 1921, oil tycoon Harry Sinclair gave several prize cattle and around $269,000 to President Harding's Secretary of the Interior, Albert Fall."

"In return," Newt recalls, "Sinclair got the exclusive rights to drill in an oil field in Wyoming. Sinclair's no-bid contract became the Teapot Dome scandal, the most notorious example of political corruption in America until Watergate."

Newt says, the United Auto Workers (UAW) gave $23,675,562 to the Democratic Party between 2000-2008 and $4,161,567 to the Democrats and Obama in 2008 alone.

Now, Gingrich points out the UAW received 55% of Chrysler and 17.5% of GM, plus billions of dollars in bailouts. And nobody's calling it a scandal...until now.

He says it's scandalous beyond belief and he makes such a strong case, anyone who cares about our country should read it. I know you care and again I strongly recommend his article.

More than a few are beginning to push back on Obama's full throttle run toward the hard left.

He is truly trying to "remake America." This is a time for people of faith to pray that God will "restore" America.
