For those of you who have been under a rock recently…Ann Coulter has been found guilty of teaching correct Church Doctrine to the Heathens. More specifically, she has said Jews that accepted Christ would be perfected Jews. Now, I ask, “What is wrong with that?”
That has been taught to me from the Bible since before I could walk. As a Christian who believes that Jesus was the ONLY begotten Son of God, and before or beside Him there are no other, and I believe that the Born Again have been adopted by God during the Age of Grace so us Gentiles get a chance to join the Kingdom of God. Before then, it was only open to Jews or children who died before the age of accountability.
That is my faith, to which I hold onto. Progressives will call it hate. In fact they even blast their own Democrat Congressman Shuler when he practices his faith.
The issue surfaced when a young man, Paul Larochelle of Ohio, requested a flag be flown over the Capitol in honor of his grandfather’s “dedication and love of God, Country and family.”
Mr. Larochelle’s certificate was returned from the Architect’s office with the word “God” removed.
I believed that this restriction was an unnecessary restriction on our citizens’ right to openly and freely practice their religion.
In response, I sent a letter to the Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi yesterday morning asking her to examine the policies and procedures of the Architect of the Capitol that were preventing the word “God,” and other religious references from being on the certificates that the accompany flags flown over the Capitol.
My letter pointed out that the Congress has passed numerous resolutions recognizing the importance of religion in the lives of Americans and that the House of Representatives clearly supports the right of the people to openly practice their faith.
As a person of faith and an elected member of this Congress, I strongly disagreed with the Architect’s prohibition of the word “God” from flag certificates and asked the Speaker to examine the authority under which he was making this policy.
I am happy to report that today the Architect’s Office announced the rules had been revised and the prohibition of religious language has been removed.

My Snap Shot of the post, in case it changes.
Here are some of the responses he received:

So can we assume that if he had wanted a Muslim reference, or Wiccan reference you would have waged the same “fight”? Are all people’s faiths sacred to you, or are you pandering only to Christians? Be honest: If he wanted to thank SATAN would you have found this amazing new spine? I think that instead you’d be revealed as the hypocrite you really are.

Responses like this convinces me that most of these people do not even read the post to which they respond…I’ve seen it here on numerous occasions, the progressives just fire away in anger. This retard obviously has a reading comprehension problem, and/or hates God. He/She/It did not comprehend this sentence from Congressman Shuler’s Post: “I believed that this restriction was an unnecessary restriction on our citizens’ right to openly and freely practice their religion.”
When these people hear a professed Christian say these words, they hear only what they want to hear.

I trust that mention of God will be at the request of the recipient only. I also trust that, should a recipient wish to invoke the name of Allah, Krishna, Amun-Re, Marduk, Astarte or any other deity, the request would be honored.

Again, another Hate-Filled Left suffering from a Lack of Reading Comprehension…brought to you, I am sure, by the public school system!
I think it is odd that the only complimentary comment (to date) has been mine:

Thank You, Congressman Shuler! You’re a Great American.

I recognize that an America where all are free to practice their religions (including Christianity), is a boon to all.
They very same people thought it was very good that another Congressman expressed his faith by swearing an oath on the Qur’an in January of this year. I can’t help but wonder what they would be saying if the Capitol Architect had refused a constituent request to have a reference to allah placed in the certificate? I can almost guarantee you they would be outraged.
This is one reason the progressives have had a hard row to hoe in the redstates, and in the South: they hate the God of Christianity, and they view people not as individuals, but as a member of a group…and seek to divide the resulting groups against the other, and try to keep themselves as the Alpha Group to which all other groups must depend upon for protection against (you fill in the blank).
Now back to the latest attack on Ann practicing Free Speech, I will leave you with the words of the local Blogging Superstar, Hillbilly White Trash:
What Ann said simply reflects clear biblical New Testament theology as regards salvation in that all people, Jew and Gentile alike, who wish to be saved from their sins and have eternal life in the presence of God must place their faith in Jesus Christ and acknowledge his deity, his atoning death on the cross, his resurrection from the dead and his eventual return. Rather than being somehow “anti-Jewish” this teaching is imminently Jewish.
Christians believe that in order to be saved that one must worship a Jew, Jesus Christ, as God. They believe that the Hebrew God sent the Jew Jesus to the Jewish nation in fulfillment of Jewish prophecies given in the Jewish bible to offer the Jews the promised Jewish millennial kingdom. Obviously a doctrine which could only be held by people who are filled up to the nose holes with hatred for the Jews. [snort]
Mr. Baehr then goes on to imply that anyone who holds a biblically correct view of salvation cannot be a supporter of Israel. Mr. Baehr needs to review the history of the second half of the 20th century. The more literally one takes the Bible the more likely he is to be a supporter of Israel. Biblical literalists believe not only what the Bible teaches about salvation but also what it says about supporting Israel and the Jews. God promises the Jews that he will bless those who bless them and curse those who curse them (Genesis 12:3).
For an example of how this blessing and cursing can work itself out consider Berlin before and after Germany’s attempted “final solution to the Jewish problem”. Before a beautiful and prosperous city and after a pile of smoking rubble full of Red Army soldiers. This is your nation. This is your nation on antisemitism. Any questions?
