Congressman Shuler Stands Up For God and the Flag

Posted by Thunder Pig on October 11, 2007

Shuler wants to reunite ‘God,’ flag

Barbara Barrett and Jane Stancill, Staff Writers

U.S. Rep. Heath Shuler wants to reconsider banning “God.”

The Waynesville Democrat has asked Speaker Nancy Pelosi to revisit a prohibition on the word God or other religious references from certificates that accompany flags flown over the U.S. Capitol.

As reported by The Hill, a Capitol Hill newspaper, a GOP congressman from Ohio became upset when God was removed from the requested writing submitted by one of his constituents.

The House Administration Committee responded this week by proposing a compromise that would let members of Congress submit writing that includes religious references. Pelosi’s office supports the idea. Shuler sent Pelosi a letter asking her to take a look at the policy.

“I believe that this restriction is an unnecessary restriction on our citizens’ right to openly and freely practice their religion,” he wrote.

He added later, “As a person of faith and an elected member of this Congress, I strongly disagree with the Architect’s prohibition of the word ‘God’ from flag certificates and ask that you examine the authority under which he is making this policy.”

Constituents can pay to have flags flown over the U.S. Capitol dome and then shipped to them with accompanying certificates. According to The Hill, the Architect of the Capitol formalized its policy on certificate language in 2003.

Kudos to Congressman Heath Shuler!!!

No matter how much I disagree with this man on many issues, I will always respect him for holding on to his faith, especially in an atmosphere that is hostile to Christianity.

George Soros: From Dots To Patterns

Posted by Thunder Pig on October 11, 2007

A generous excerpt:

Let’s move ahead. Past the 2004 election in which Soros gave over $23 million dollars to a variety of 527 committees to influence the 2004 election.

* Dot: September 2007. The New York Times gives a special discount rate ($64,575) not available to others (who are charged $142,083) to the Soros-funded Move On.org for a full page ad attacking General David Petraeus.

* Dot: September- October 2007. Media Matters, described by National Review’s Jonah Goldberg in the New York Post as “part of the complex of liberal activist groups linked to George Soros” targets Bill O’Reilly with a false charge of racism and Rush Limbaugh with a phony charge of being anti-military. Both stories dominate the news cycle for days.

* Dot: October 2007. Now we find out from our colleague The Prowler here at The American Spectator that Congressman Henry Waxman, chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee “has asked his investigative staff to begin compiling reports on Limbaugh, and fellow radio hosts Sean Hannity and Mark Levin based on transcripts from their shows, and to call in Federal Communications chairman Kevin Martin to discuss the so-called ‘Fairness Doctrine.'” A Democratic House leadership aide says flatly that “Limbaugh isn’t the only one who needs to be made uncomfortable about what he says on the radio.”

LET’S STAND BACK and take a look at the pattern formed by all these individual dots. What has George Soros’ money been used to pay for?

Commentary

Billionaire George Soros is attempting nothing less than a takeover and remolding of America after his own image, and the destruction of everything of a Judeo-Christian nature in our society. We should be shining a light on him, his associates, and his organizations; and should that fail, resist him with every tool at our disposal. Should his people gain the White House, America will reap the whirlwind.

There will be much more information forthcoming about this man and his evil one world vision during the upcoming election cycle.

More background info:

He got his first chance when he was finally admitted to the Fabian Socialist London School of Economics in 1949. He had been a little down, but he wasn’t out. Still empowered by his narrow escapes from the Nazis and the Soviets, he was perfectly poised at the threshold of revelation, and he indeed got one. Not from God, but from another atheist, Karl Popper. Writing for the Atlantic Monthly in “The Capitalist Threat,” Soros says that Popper’s analysis of the “Open Society” “struck me with the force of revelation.”

Writing for the Atlantic Monthly in 1997, Soros explained his “visionary” Open Society and its values:

Moreover, the open society as a universal concept transcends all boundaries. Societies derive their cohesion from shared values. These values are rooted in culture, religion, history and tradition. When a society does not have boundaries, where are the shared values to be found? I believe there is only one possible source: the concept of the open society itself. (Emphasis mine)
And there you have it. Since there will be no external immutable source such as God from which to derive morality and values, those one-world, anything-goes people are going to need something to hold them together, something upon which to focus. But they have nothing but circular logic. Which means there are no limits at all.

There are some compelling similarities between Tivadar’s pseudo-religion, Esperanto, and George’s new religion, the Open Society.

Both are ideologies that espouse man as supreme, especially over God. Both depend upon internationalism over the nation-state concept. Both require the destruction of individual cultures and traditions. Both demand a tyrannical tolerance for every idea being treated in absolute equal fashion.

In other words, George Soros did not really find a new religion; he just found essentially the same one as his father, minus the vehicle of language. A sort of Kingdom of Babel with qualities of Sodom and Gomorrah thrown into the mix. No wonder he has found such a warm home with the aging hippie class; they all adhere to the same creed. If it feels good do it.
