Tasha Easterling reports some recent findings from Pew which finds that many Americans blend different religions together to create their own brand of spirituality. Easterling writes, “Christians have gotten away from the Biblical truth that there is only one way to salvation.  It is more comfortable and popular to believe that there are many ways to God and they are all correct (a la Oprah) than to believe that Jesus is the only way”

Jeremy Wiggins is upset with some recent statements made by Pres. Obama in a bipartisan meeting of Congress when he told the Republicans to quit trying to scare the American public about the current health care reform proposal.

Matt Friedeman believes that the Tiger Woods scandal will not ruin his career and could make him more popular than ever. In another post Friedeman highlights an article that compares Tiger Woods and Barack Obama saying both have been whitewashed to create a positive public image. Woods’ skeletons have been revealed and Obama’s could soon be on the way.

Friedeman is also worried about the latest changes to the health care reform proposal which would eliminate the public option but drastically increase the scope of Medicare. Rep. Anthony Weiner applauds the move as a significant step toward a single payer system.

Bryan Fischer is upset with ‘safe schools’ czar Kevin Jenning’s reading list. Summarizing the list, Fischer writes, “Book after book after book contained stories and anecdotes that weren’t merely X-rated and pornographic, but which featured explicit descriptions of sex acts between pre-schoolers; stories that seemed to promote and recommend child-adult sexual relationships; stories of public masturbation, anal sex in restrooms, affairs between students and teachers, five-year-olds playing sex games, semen flying through the air”

Matt Friedeman passes along a recent report from the Washington Post that concludes the U.S. national debt is larger than the net worth of all Americans combined.

Elijah Friedeman rehashes some of the debate between his columns of those of Bryan Fischer by noting that leading Muslims have argued that Nadal Hasan must repent for his actions because they were specifically in violation of the Quran, an idea that is contradictory to Fischer’s belief that Islam is a violent religion.

Chuck Norris writes a lengthy article in response to Sen. Obama’s trip to Copehagen, which he believes to be a waste of time. He cites the hacked emails of climate scientists as well as the fact that no treaty has been completed before the trip for Pres. Obama to sign when he arrives.  Janet Porter is also upset with Al Gore and some of the claims he is making. She believes Gore to be a hypocrite because the Tennessee EPA cites him as the number one polluter in the state because of a tin mine on his property.

Elijah Friedeman pokes fun at Jeremy Olson who threw a tomato at Sarah Palin during her book tour. His throw was off however and actually hit a policemen providing security. Olson was charged with assaulting a police officer.

E. Friedeman also notes that the Gallup tracking poll has Pres. Obama’s approval at 47%, a new low for this administration. Spokesman Robert Gibbs questioned the reliability of the poll.

The Roman Catholic church in Scotland has declared that the hokey pokey is officially off limits to its parishioners as it was originally called ‘the hocus pocus’.

Matt Friedeman notes a recent article Christianity Today that addresses the question of what the church should do with sex offenders. Friedeman writes, “Whatever churches decide, there must be a balance between grace and accountability.”

Friedeman is also upset that Sen. Majority Leader Harry Reid compared those opposed to health care reform to those who opposed the abolition of slavery. He writes, “You would think Democrats would get tired of using the same old “Republicans are racist” put down.”

Friedeman also writes that he agrees with the Wall Street Journal when it says that Pres. Obama should give his Nobel Peace Prize to Shirin Ebadi who had her medal confiscated by the Iranian government.

E. Friedeman notes the hypocrisy of the Copenhagen Climate Summit as it will create tremendous amounts of greenhouse gases through the use of planes and limos to get dignitaries to the conference.

E. Friedeman also reports that the TEA party actually beats the GOP in a 3 way generic ballot for 2012. He writes, “The scariest thing about this poll for a Republican loyalist is the fact that close to the same number of Republicans say that they would vote for a TEA party candidate over a Republican candidate.”

Jeremy Wiggins also embeds a video of an undercover investigation in to Planned Parenthood that shows them committing numerous violations of state and federal law.

Tasha Easterling posts today about the recent publicity given to college football players who are also Christians, specifically naming Tim Tebow as a prime example. “[This] served as a big reminder to me that God is alive and well, and is often at work where I least expect it – even in college football. ”

David Limbaugh writes that President Obama and the Democrats in Congress are guilty of using trick accounting to make it appear that the health care reform package will cost much less than it actually will.  The Heritage Foundation believes that the current Senate version of the bill will add $370 billion in taxes over the next decade. Limbaugh concludes, “But as depressing as Obama’s relentless socialist assault on America is, I am continually lifted up by the fighting spirit of those who will never abandon the fight to preserve liberty.”

Kerby Andersen writes about the paranoia surrounding the date of 2012 and the end of the world. Andersen uses his column to dispel rumors and assert that the world will not end according to the Mayan calendar.

Apparently, global warming fits perfectly into this not-my-fault world we live in.”

He contends that the War Against Christmas began with the Nazis because they did not want to celebrate the birth of Jesus because of he was a Jew.  Fischer concludes, “And I will conclude, ‘I celebrate Christmas because I’m no anti-Semitic racist bigot. How about you?'”
