"Jihad will continue until America is no more"

Who would make such a racist, bigoted, and hateful comment? Who's the colossal Islamophobe? Rush? Hannity? Pamela Geller or Robert Spencer? Nope.

Rush and Sean are still afraid of the "j" word (although Sean will use the word with an "-ist" at the end). And Geller and Spencer will one day be hailed as guardians of Western Civilization (if it survives).

No, that's the head of Islam in Iran. Perhaps our (allegedly) former-Muslim-in-Chief can explain to Khamenei how he misunderstands The-Religion-of-Peace-Say-Otherwise-and-I'll-Cut-Your-Head-Off and how he's "hijacking a great world religion." (If only Bush 43 had been making a veiled admission of Islam's guilt with that now-clearly unintentional pun!)

Whether it's Boko Haram, Al Qaeda, or Iran, Sunni or Shia, USC or UCLA's MSA, the goals are the same.

Anyway, here's more evidence that the "smartest president ever" who grew up Muslim and his lapdogs in the media are really only facilitating the end of civilization, a process they accelerate by allowing a nuclear Iran
In response to a question by a parliamentarian on how long this battle will continue, Khamenei said,“Battle and jihad are endless because evil and its front continue to exist. … This battle will only end when the society can get rid of the oppressors’ front with America at the head of it, which has expanded its claws on human mind, body and thought. … This requires a difficult and lengthy struggle and need for great strides.”

The only things "transparent" about liberals are their utter, craven dishonesty and homicidal malfeasance

So, Democrats are calling Obama "detached," "flat-footed," and "incompetent."

That makes them racist, right?

And now that the government's utter, fatal failures in caring for our national heroes are being exposed, the VA is going to "allow" more veterans to go to private medical facilities for help.

How magnanimous! How wise!

These are the people to whom the greedy, closet racists, and the apathetic have entrusted our medical care?

Way to go, America. You elected a "detached and flat-footed incompetent" to take away our health care -- not to mention our right to determine how best to spend our own resources -- from private industry only to return to it when they start killing us.

Well done!

Obvious truths?

Yes, if you're willing to read honestly.

Two replies, one offered to a Roman Catholic who is afraid to deal with the Word of God as the Word of God, and the other to an atheist who is either so uninformed or so perverse as to try to undermine the faith of the weak.

From here (pending moderation):

To Rose:
Facts are facts.
If the history -- even in the Old Testament -- isn't true, then you can't trust Christ, Who said that it is.
You're not only "not Sola Scriptura" -- by the way, neither are Southern Baptists, even though they [might] think they are -- you're not any Scriptura.
You need to rethink that.
To Hiker:
With regard to your so-called "contradictions":
1) The Creation accounts (not "stories") do not conflict; they focus on the event from two different perspectives.
Both accounts were written by the same author, Moses, who was educated in all the wisdom of the ancient world. Don't you think that he would have noticed that he was "contradicting" himself? And the people of ancient Israel, to whom this subject matter was Life-and-Death and who preserved Moses' writings as the very words of God -- don't you think someone (everyone!) would have noticed? "Hey, wait a minute, Moses ...."
2) "Two different flood stories"? Genesis is still written by Moses.
3) The fact that you have to ask where was Jesus born and where His parents lived indicates that you're either intellectually-lazy or cravenly-dishonest, since the answer is available to anyone who can read. [The tone of this line bothers me, but taken in context, it seems necessary, since Hiker is not asking honestly; he's trying to destroy Rose's faith.]
Christ was born in Bethlehem, in a manger. When the Magi (number unstated) find Him, it's close to two years later, which we know from the historical record: Herod ordered the slaughter of all male babies two-years-old and younger based on the time of Christ's birth he learned from the wise men:
"Then Herod, when he saw that he had been tricked by the wise men, became furious, and he sent and killed all the male children in Bethlehem and in all that region who were two years old or under, according to the time that he had ascertained from the wise men" (Matthew 2:16).)
4) As for Bethlehem or Nazareth? No one's ever moved from one city to another, have they?
"And Joseph also went up from Galilee, from the town of Nazareth, to Judea, to the city of David, which is called Bethlehem, because he was of the house and lineage of David [...]" (Luke 2:4). 
"And when they had performed everything according to the Law of the Lord, they returned into Galilee, to their own town of Nazareth [...]" (Luke 2:39). 
5) Archaeology has uncovered another reign as governor/proconsul for someone named Quirinius, because, you know, no one's ever been named the same as someone else or served in an office twice.
[Luke calls Pontius Pilate "governor of Judea" in Luke 3, even though Pilate was "procurator"; Luke used the word to mean "one who governs" and not necessarily as a title. Luke also notes that the Luke 2 census was the "first" while Quirinius was governor; he notes a later census under Quirinius in Acts 5. Finally, Vardaman notes microletters on the Lapis Venetus also placing Quirinius as proconsul of Syria and Cilicia c. 12/11 B.C.]

Your objections are simplistic, dishonest, and stale. You're neither reading nor thinking for yourself, or you're hoping only to undermine the faith of others.
Perhaps, Hiker, it's time for you to reexamine your religion. And your motives.
