God to be Allowed In at the Inauguration

Yes, the ruling has come down: God will be allowed at the inauguration of our president on Tuesday. It violates our constitutional rights a group of atheists had decided, and subsequently filed an injunction against the use of the words “So help me, God” during the swearing-in of President-elect Barack Obama. But references to God are okay U. S. District Judge Reggie B. Walton has decided as he refused to grant an injunction preventing such references. Walton ruled that he did not have the power to prevent Obama from making such references or from inviting ministers on stage to offer prayers.

The group of atheists, led by Californian Michael A. Newdow, failed in similar lawsuits to remove prayer from President Bush’s swearing-in ceremonies in 2001 and 2005.

Welcome, God as our 44th president takes office. Welcome to our country, to our streets, our cities and hamlets. Welcome to our halls of government. We need you, God. We desperately need you.

Outrageous: Keith Ellison Compares President Bush to Hitler

By now, nothing should astonish me…however: That a congressman who claims to be interested in the welfare of the United States of America and who has pledged himself to serve our country and its principles, should make a preposterous, derogatory statement that compares our president, George W. Bush, to the mass murderer, Adolph Hiter, is inexcusable and indefensible. I’m truly outraged. He has insulted our leader and our country. While I know he has the liberty to say whatever he wishes, given that he serves in the greatest country in the world, and one of the hallmarks of our nation is the freedom of speech, it is telling that he seems not to understand expediency and honor. A patriot, he seems not to be.

Democratic Rep. Keith Ellison, the first Muslim elected to Congress, is defending himself Monday after comparing President Bush to Adolf Hitler and leaving the impression the administration may have rigged the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks.

Speaking to an atheist group on July 8, Ellison said that the president acted much the way Hitler did when the Reichstag, or German Parliament building, was burned in 1933 ahead of elections that pitted Hitler’s Nazi Party against others, including the Communists. Hitler, who was suspected of ordering the fire, declared emergency powers that helped him launch his dictatorial and murderous reign.

“It’s almost like the Reichstag fire, kind of reminds me of that,” Ellison told the group, according to The Minneapolis Star Tribune. “After the Reichstag was burned, they blamed the Communists for it and it put the leader of that country [Hitler] in a position where he could basically have authority to do whatever he wanted.”

During his speech, Ellison went on to tell the 350-member Atheists for Human Rights: “I’m not saying [Sept. 11] was a [U.S.] plan, or anything like that, because, you know, that’s how they put you in the nut-ball box — dismiss you.”

Atheist/Christian Debate Using Only Scientific Facts

I was astounded when a few months ago on YouTube I saw many people stare unblinking into the camera and blatantly blaspheme the Holy Ghost. Without reservation, they stated their atheist and agnostic beliefs and with no apparent fear spoke of their willingness to damm their souls to hell. It was ghastly.

Across our planet there is a strong attack against God and His people. Outspoken atheists are proliferating and seem emboldened to speak against Jesus and His divine nature.

As I read the following article this morning, my heart was cheered, and I anticipate following this debate where Kirk Cameron will defend the existence of God using only scientific fact, and without invoking his faith.

NEW YORK – A prominent Christian best-selling author is asserting that he can prove the existence of God without using the Bible, and has challenged two atheists to a debate.

Ray Comfort, author of God Doesn’t Believe in Atheists, alongside fellow Christian and actor Kirk Cameron (Growing Pains) will butt heads with two ardent nonbelievers using only scientific fact in a debate sponsored by ABC. Comfort says that the evidence will “absolutely” confirm that there is a God, and he will not speak about his faith.

“Most people equate atheism with intellectualism,” explained Comfort in a statement, “but it’s actually an intellectual embarrassment. I am amazed at how many people think that God’s existence is a matter of faith. It’s not, and I will prove it at the debate – once and for all. This is not a joke. I will present undeniable scientific proof that God exists.”

The debate is in reaction to the “Blasphemy Challenge” that started late in 2006. The two creators of the movement encouraged all people to tape themselves with a short message that will “damn themselves to hell.” Participants must recite the line “I deny the Holy Spirit,” and then upload their video onto YouTube.
