On the 45th Anniversary of MLK’s “I Have a Dream Speech,” it might be surprising to remember that Dr. King, Jr. was a Republican. MLK’s niece also verfies this fact and further explains that resistance most often came from Democrats:
No one batted an eye when President Kennedy opposed the 1963 March on Washington by Dr. King. Hardly a ripple of protest was uttered when President Kennedy, through his brother Attorney General Robert Kennedy, had Dr. King wiretapped and investigated on suspicion of being a Communist.
Barack Obama’s acceptance speech tonight will be and is an historic event. But the great irony is that the Republican administrations since the days of Abraham Lincoln through the modern Civil Rights Movement have significantly helped make the first presidential nominee acceptance speech by an African American possible—even though it’s for the Democratic Party.

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.
Now if Christ be preached that he rose from the dead, how say some among you that there is no resurrection of the dead? But if there be no resurrection of the dead, then is Christ not risen: And if Christ be not risen, then our preaching vain, and your faith is also vain.
Yea, and we are found false witnesses of God; because we have testified of God that he raised up Christ: whom he raised not up, if so be that the dead rise not.
And if Christ be not raised, your faith is vain; ye are yet in your sins. Then they also which are fallen asleep in Christ are perished. If in the this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men most miserable. I Corinthians 15:12-19
