A just released survey of Muslims living in the United States discovered that a majority of those surveyed (51 percent) agreed that Muslims in America should have the choice of being governed according to shariah or the United States Constitution. When the same question was asked of the broad American population, the contrast was drastic. An overwhelming majority, 86 percent of Americans polled held that shariah should not displace the United States Constitution. More than half of US Muslims polled also believe that they should have their own tribunals to apply shariah. Only 39 percent of Muslims polled said Muslims in the U. S. should be subject to American courts.

Nearly 1 in 4 of the Muslims polled that are living in the United States believed that, “It is legitimate to use violence to punish those who give offense to Islam by, for example, portraying the prophet Mohammed.”

Cruz Close Behind and Leading in Iowa, Establishment Candidates Getting no Traction

The latest polls indicate that Donald Trump is “building a commanding national lead” over his opponents. The only opponent showing a threatening surge is Texas Senator Ted Cruz.

Many concerned citizens are flocking to Donald Trump because they are convinced that the establishment Republicans are not committed to closing the borders and protecting citizens from an onslaught of foreigners that include an unknown number of committed terrorist.

An old adage that I recall from childhood appears more true today than ever. “If you give some people an inch, they will take a mile.”

Before current college-aged South Carolinians were born, schools and other institutions in this state were integrated and Jim Crow Laws scrapped with minimum turmoil. Later, lawmakers proclaimed national, state and county MLK Holidays and began naming highways, streets, schools and other landmarks for the late civil rights leader. MLK is the only American to be so honored.

Then came demands. “Remove the battle flag from the capitol dome or the NAACP will lead a boycott of the state.” In order to maintain peace, a compromise was reached and agreed to by all parties.  The flag would be removed from the dome and placed appropriately at the memorial of the Confederate soldier on the capitol grounds. As part of the agreement, a large monument heralding Black history would be erected on the capitol grounds. The agreement was made into law.

Changing the Culture of the U. S. Military PDF Print E-mail

Secretary of Defense Ash Carter has announced he is opening all positions in the U. S. military to women. Obama has been pushing this unwise change for years. This decision will degrade the overall effectiveness of several critical elements of the United States defense establishment. The decision was not made of military necessity or to improve the military in any way. It was made to satisfy the career ambitions of a dozen or so senior military women and to degrade the military by those politicians who loathe the military and want to fundamentally change the United States of America to their twisted vision of a Socialist state.

It is clear that the Obama Administration has no interest in their decision’s impact on national defense or the impact on individual service women or their fellow service members.

Pastor Lays Aside Political Correctness, Confronts Radical Islam PDF Print E-mail

“It is Impossible to Defeat an Enemy you are Unwilling to Identify.”

Dr-Robert-Jeffress_Page-02

On Sunday morning following the radical Islamic attacks on innocent civilians in Paris, Dr. Robert Jeffress Pastor of First Baptist Church in Dallas, Texas, dispensed with political correctness and provided a special message to his congregation. Dr. Jeffress and Pastor Donnie Swaggart have demonstrated boldness and courage that most pastors and elected officials have not yet exhibited.

The message now on U-tube lasts only 6 minutes and will be quoted as near verbatim as possible.

I feel like I need to address the tragedy we all witnessed this weekend in Paris. What should be our response to that tragedy? Certainly, as Christians, we should be praying for the victims and the victims families. Psalms 34 says, The Lord is close to those who are broken hearted.
