The 44% Solution to the Coming Media Propaganda Blitz.
My home page is currently on Yahoo. I say currently because I'm not sure I can stomach it too much longer. I don't know if anyone else has noticed, but since the passage of the health care bill, Yahoo News, never exactly a bipartisan organization anyway, has poured on the stories about how wonderful it is now that Obamacare is ours. If you watch their headlines, you'll see that Americans are doing a happy dance in the street for joy now that all those millions of injured, starving, sick people have been dragged up out of the ditches where they've been dying without hope and miraculously healed.
And now, all of a sudden, there are evil conservative terrorists springing up everywhere threatening the brave Democrats that voted for health care at grave personal risk. They leave coffins on lawns, they threaten to blow up policemen and murder our beloved president. I expect global warming to start heating up any day now.
For crying out loud, at least they could be subtle about it instead of wearing flower leis and singing the "I Love Obama" song.
Try watching some of the other mainstream news media and see if something is not rotten in the state of America. See whether or not you begin to see a propaganda campaign cranking up.
A new movie called "The God That Never Was" was recently released. In his movie, progressive director Brian Fleming comes to the shocking conclusion that God does not exist. I am stunned. He also thinks that Christians are scary stupid. Whoa! I didn't see that coming.
Fleming quotes an "alarming" statistic - at least he thinks it's alarming. He says 44% of Americans believe Jesus will come in their lifetimes. Now, my question is, "Why does he think that's an alarming statistic?"
Is it because (A) He thinks such a belief can only be held by dangerous right wing militia gun nuts OR..........
(B) Because he thinks it might be true and he just realized his last movie was about how Jesus doesn't exist.
The fact that 44 of every 100 Americans truly believes Jesus is on the way, sort of indicates to me just how bad things have gotten. Jesus said before the end you would see signs of the impending apocalypse. He said that in the same way we see signs in the trees and weather that tell us that winter is coming, so would it be in the days of His coming as well.
Well, I don't know about you, but I'm starting to see the leaves dropping.
So, if 44 out of every 100 of us believe that Jesus has loaded up the bus and is fixing to come after us, maybe we should be hanging out together more, treating each other like we would want to be treated, lifting each other up to stand through the coming trial, instead of bickering endlessly over fine points of doctrine.
Forty four percent is a voting block that could carry any election. Forty four percent could end hunger, reduce poverty and change the very government of our country with our votes. I don't believe the remaining 56% of the country is quite that organized that they could defeat us if we were determined. There are at least 20% or so that are Ayn Rand atheists that would vote with us.
Till 2010, then, how about lets lift each other up with prayer and friendship. Let us Christians hang together. We are a peaceful army, which, if led by God, is a force against which no potentate can stand. We will not let them define us. We will not let them label us. We will stand firm for God though the heavens fall 'round us. We need not lift a weapon or plant a bomb. We need dig no trenches or don helmets and flack jackets. Angels will stand between us and evil men. God will fight for us and if He is with us, who can stand against us.
Be of good cheer my brothers and sisters.
And if you find a better home page than Yahoo, would you let me know. I don't know how much more smugness I can take.
I'm just sayin'
