“What is it like to be a Christian?”
“It is like being a pumpkin. God picks you from the patch, brings you in, and washes all the dirt off of you. Then He cuts off the top and scoops out all the yucky stuff. He removes the seeds of doubt, hate, and greed. Then He carves you a new smiling face and puts His light inside of you to shine for all the world to see.” — Anonymous
A pro-life charity is suing Google over the internet company’s refusal to display its anti-abortion advert.
The Christian Institute wanted to pay Google so that when the word “abortion” was typed into the search engine, a link to a web page on its views popped up on the right hand side of the screen.
The link would have read: “UK abortion law – news and views on abortion from the Christian Institute”, and users could click on it to access the website.
However, Google has a policy of declining sites which mix topics like abortion with religious views and it refused the request.
A spokesman for Google advertising said: “At this time, Google policy does not permit the advertisement of websites that contain abortion and religion-related content.”
Conservemus posted a short film for us to watch in two 7 minute parts. It’s officially been pulled according his post, but still available to view for now. This courageous short documentary-type piece by filmmaker and Dutch politician, Geert Wilders is called FITNA, and many Islamic people around the world are furious. But the film is powerful because it shows the radical extremists speaking from their own mouths and acting out of the hatred spread among them. If you are so inclined: CLICK HERE for Paul’s post.
I was hesitant to watch the clips, but at some point we Americans must confront the ugly truth of radical Islam and jihadists. I cannot emphasize enough McCain’s strength of leadership in dealing with the reality of what we as a nation face from Islamic extremists. This is also a strong reminder that America is in the midst of spiritual warfare as real as any war and that Christian Americans must continue to pray for wisdom for ourselves, our nation, and our leaders in this age of global extremism.
