Abortion clinic bombing Christians

Last week USA Today published letter’s from infamous abortion clinic bomber Eric Rudolph who eluded capture in the mountains of North Carolina for five years. He had been held up as the poster child of all that is wrong with the Christian right.

The only problem with that, he isn’t a Christian. In a letter to his mother he wrote about his prison experience printed in a USA Today article.

“Many good people continue to send me money and books,” Rudolph writes in an undated letter. “Most of them have, of course, an agenda; mostly born-again Christians looking to save my soul. I suppose the assumption is made that because I’m in here I must be a ‘sinner’ in need of salvation, and they would be glad to sell me a ticket to heaven, hawking this salvation like peanuts at a ballgame. I do appreciate their charity, but I could really do without the condescension. They have been so nice I would hate to break it to them that I really prefer Nietzsche to the Bible.”

But there was not a word about how his radical athiestic views (“God is dead”) were the cause of his evil – unlike when the press thought he was a Christian extremist.

Stupid news of the day

We have the evening news cast on right now. They just reported a story about the space shuttle. Tuesday, during the launch, a window cover fell off the shuttle and damaged thermal tiles near the tail.

The local news cast reported that cover was held on by tape and that officials did not yet know why the cover fell off.

Something tells me that it fell off because it was held on by tape!

Islamacists – a time to review

Yesterday terrorists attacked London by bombing a bus and subway trains. Before the smoke had cleared, the blame-America-first crowd was…well, blaming America. Hugh Hewitt posted a transcription of Al Franken’s interview with Pat Oliphant. Here is a sample of the exchange:

Franken: Or have we made things worse…

Oliphant: Or have they gone in the wrong direction…

Franken: Right

Well, it is time to review exactly what al Qaeda is demanding from the U.S. Back in November of 2002, bin Laden wrote an open letter to the U.S. Here are his demands:

(1) The first thing that we are calling you to is Islam.

(2) The second thing we call you to, is to stop your oppression, lies, immorality and debauchery that has spread among you.

(i) You are the nation who, rather than ruling by the Shariah of Allah in its Constitution and Laws, choose to invent your own laws as you will and desire.

(3) What we call you to thirdly is to take an honest stance with yourselves – and I doubt you will do so – to discover that you are a nation without principles or manners, and that the values and principles to you are something which you merely demand from others, not that which you yourself must adhere to.

(4) We also advise you to stop supporting Israel, and to end your support of the Indians in Kashmir, the Russians against the Chechens and to also cease supporting the Manila Government against the Muslims in Southern Philippines.

(5) We also advise you to pack your luggage and get out of our lands. We desire for your goodness, guidance, and righteousness, so do not force us to send you back as cargo in coffins.

(6) Sixthly, we call upon you to end your support of the corrupt leaders in our countries. Do not interfere in our politics and method of education. Leave us alone, or else expect us in New York and Washington.

(7) We also call you to deal with us and interact with us on the basis of mutual interests and benefits, rather than the policies of sub dual, theft and occupation, and not to continue your policy of supporting the Jews because this will result in more disasters for you.

If you fail to respond to all these conditions, then prepare for fight with the Islamic Nation.

According to Osama bin Laden himself, al Qaeda is fighting to spread Islam. They demand we abandon our constitution and accept Islam. Isn’t it amazing that Franken and Oliphant are suspicious of President Bush’s motives and at the same time don’t believe bin Laden when he says he hates Western culture?

Bin Laden wrote over two years ago how he hates our lifestyle and culture, and the Franken-phants thinks we are the problem. I’d like to know when the Franken-phants are going to give up their western culture and start facing east and pray?

Amazing Health News

Male circumcision cuts AIDS risk

Male circumcision reduces the risk that men will contract HIV through intercourse with infected women by about 70 percent, according to a study reported in The Wall Street Journal.

After discovering the dramatic results, French and South African researchers halted the study about nine months in order to offer the uncircumcised men the opportunity to undergo the procedure, the newspaper reported.

This may explain why heterosexual AIDS is so rampant in Africa yet rare in the U.S.

Vacation from the vacation

We came back from Las Cruces a couple of days ago. I needed to finish a paper for school and we both thought a couple days of vacation from taking a vacation would be good.

Las Cruces was HOT! I did get to golf (and I use the term loosely) a couple of times. I should really practice and play more often. Maybe I could hit a ball that way.
