Alvie Zane nails our current spiritual situation:

The left is jealous of the church.

This is why liberals hate the church. It’s why they screech about the separation of church and state-which is really not about separating church from state as much as it is replacing church with state.  This is why there were no religious figures reading from the Bible.  Because according to the Gospel of Liberalism, THEY ARE THE RELIGIOUS FIGURES.  They are absorbed with self-worship and masturbatory oration.

Go back to Obama’s claim that Giffords opened her eyes for the first time when Pelosi, et al were in the room.  (And as Ernest commented earlier, pity poor Giffords, opening her eyes to see THAT in her hospital room.)  It is Obama attempting to claim credit as if she were blind Bartimeus, Lazarus, and the woman with 12 years of bleeding all rolled into one and her condition improved merely because she touched the hem of his robes and healing flowed out of him to her.

I’ll say this again, HusseinO isn’t worthy to tie the AntiChrist’s shoelaces.  (or hold his umbrella)  He’s just the herald crying out in the wilderness, preparing the way.  That makes the hair on my neck stand up.

And “civility is the new censorship”. Word.

    I’m going to disagree with you and Zane on this.

    The liberal clamor for separation of church and state is based on the fact that when churches, as institutions, get mixed up in running the state, they always seem to end up on the authoritarian, restrictive camp. (Do you know of any that intervened on the other end of the spectrum? I don’t.) It’s not so much replacing the church as keeping a perceived enemy at bay.

    As for O reporting on Gifford’s opening of the eyes, I read that as simply reporting good news to the audience. I don’t see any claim to miraculous healing.

    BTW, may I suggest the shtick about “Target” is already wearing a little thin?

    Target is the new fnord.

    While I share the liberal church/state concern, I really think there’s more to it than that. The hubristic tendency to fix and control everything in the world is essentially that of the builders of the Tower of Babel. And the urge to define morality rationally (as opposed to using reason to apprehend natural or revealed law) is that of Eden “you will know good and evil”) Does Alvie overstate the case? Perhaps. Maybe he’s not the Anti-John the Baptist; perhaps he’s the Anti-Billy Graham.

  3. kishnevi says:

    Anti-Billy Graham? You give O. too much credit.
    He’s more in the league of the folks who preach the “prosperity gospel”.

  4. Jeffrey Quick says:

    But if I’d tarzhe said, “The anti-Creflo Dollar” I’d be a racist

  5. Jeffrey Quick says:

    In place of today’s tar get, this from Don Surber.
    Bite me indeed.

  6. kishnevi says:

    Wouldn’t Joel Osteen qualify?

    BTW, I refuse to believe that anyone could actually name their child Creflo Dollar. That has to be a stage name.

    The Surber is fine, but ignores all the screaming that’s come from the Republican side of the aisle.
    Both sides need to start acting like adults.

    Of course, the irony is that I think that if this country is going to get back to anything approaching free, a good deal of violence is going to have to happen, as the only way to get rid of all the entrenched interests.

  7. jeffreyquick says:

    Sure he would. But with a name like that, if I called BHØ “the anti-Joel Osteen”, would I be anti-Semitic?
    FWIW, here’s a claim that Creflo Augustus Dollar Jr. was born that way. His wife’s name is Taffi.
    As for acting like adults… I suspect that one side or the other will stop flinging poo about the time it starts flinging bullets. Worrying about civility at this point is about like enforcing First Class dress code on the Titanic’s lifeboats.

  8. kishnevi says:

    Names spelled (-)steen are Dutch, IIRC. (I learned that back when I was a Springsteen fan). And Daddy O. started out as a Southern Baptist preacher. So you wouldn’t be anti-Semitic, but the Netherlands PC lobby would like to have a word with you. says it’s actually Creflo A. Dollar, Jr. Creflo, Sr. was a cop.
