TechCrunch Interviews Sen. John McCain on Google, Yahoo & Privacy November 12, 2007

I can appreciate John McCain’s criticism of both Google and Yahoo on privacy in China. The Internet is supposed to be the tool that will break down not only trade barriers but cultural barriers. It remains the most effective channel to export freedom to countries where this is none. Shame on Google and Yahoo for giving into the Chinese Government on censorship.

Horowitz Defends Coulter October 13, 2007

While Ann Coulter faces charges of anti-Semitism for stating in an interview Christians are “perfected Jews” and wishing everyone would convert to her faith, at least one well-known Jewish political pundit wonders what the fuss is over traditional doctrine.

David Horowitz, editor of Front Page Magazine, says in his blog today he’s received “a surprising number of e-mails from friends basically asking ‘What are you going to do about Coulter?'”

“My response is this,” Horowitz writes, “What else would a Christian hope for? That’s the message of the New Testament: Jesus came to fulfill, complete, perfect the Law. If you’re a Christian, that’s what you believe.”

The controversy began when Media Matters, a pro-Democrat lobby headed by David Brock, noted Coulter’s appearance on CNBC’s “The Big Idea” with host Donny Deutsch. Presidential hopeful Sen. Hillary Clinton recently claimed credit for helping to launch Media Matters.

As WND reported, the National Jewish Democratic Council this week called on “mainstream media outlets” to stop inviting Coulter as a guest commentator and pundit and strongly condemned her comments.

The Anti-Defamation League issued a statement today condemning Coulter for “anti-Semitic” comments, saying she “clearly knows very little about religious theology and interfaith issues.”

“Coulter’s remarks are outrageous, offensive and a throwback to the centuries-old teaching of contempt for Jews and Judaism,” the ADL said. “The notion that Jews are religiously inferior or imperfect because they do not accept Christian beliefs was the basis for 2,000 years of church-based anti-Semitism. While she is entitled to her beliefs, using mainstream media to espouse the idea that Judaism needs to be replaced with Christianity and that each individual Jew is somehow deficient and needs to be ‘perfected,’ is rank Christian supersessionism and has been rejected by the Catholic Church and the vast majority of mainstream Christian denominations.”

But Horowitz wonders why Jews in pluralist America should be offended.

Entertaining exchange between Donny Deutsch and Anne Coulter. What begins as an exchange of an ideal world filled with republicans turns to a debate on Christians being perfected Jews. It is clear here that standing up for what you believe as truth is considered offensive.

N.S. town council votes against raising pride flag
Updated Fri. Aug. 3 2007 6:56 PM ET

CTV.ca News Staff

A Nova Scotia mayor has refused to fly the gay pride flag for a pride event, saying it promotes a lifestyle that conflicts with his religious views — and most of the town’s council backed him.

Members voted 6-1 Friday against a request from a local pride group to fly the rainbow-coloured flag at Truro’s town hall next week.

And the mayor, Bill Mills, made it clear his decision was motivated by his Christian beliefs.

“There are writings in the book of Romans chapter one, to name a few — basically I have to go with that conviction, and I know it’s not a popular one,” Mills said.

Gentes/CHRC withdraw complaint against Free Dominion

Moments ago, we received another letter from the Canadian Human Rights Commission, dated August 1, 2007, informing us that Marie-Line Gentes has withdrawn her complaint against Free Dominion and requested that the CRHC take no further action against us.

I would like to thank Ms. Gentes for making this move and will assume her motives for doing so were honourable.

The meat of the letter reads:

———————————————————————————

Criticizing Islam is now Hate Speech! July 21, 2007

Freedom of Speech appears to no longer apply to Christians in Canada. Criticizing Islam will land you in front of a Human Rights tribunal, and subject to fines or jail time. Freedominion.ca which is an open discussion forum that discusses conservativism recieved a letter from the Ontario human rights commission on July 16, 2007 because Bill Whatcott a frequent poster to the site critized Muslims for not doing enough to curb extremism. See the post for yourself. He begins with some disturbing images, discusses how Mulims are not doing enough to curb extremism, and puts forward fact that explains how they are not a religion of peace and then ends off his post with saying that the truth is only found in Jesus Christ. See the original post link and you will see for yourself. (warning the images are graphic )

Political correctness is a disease and it is slowly destroying our nation. These Human rights commissions have to be challenged. We can no longer stand back and watch, if we don’t get involved our freedoms will continue to diminish. As a Christian ask yourself; how will Christians be able to fulfill their mandate of spreading the gospel if we are constantly silenced? How are we to be effective in our culture if we cannot even criticize some of the greatest evils of our time?

I am concerned for our nation. For updates on the situation please log onto the posting at freedominion.ca

Whats wrong with Dissent? September 2, 2006

As I flip through my Saturday morning newspaper or when I change the channel on my television set, I can’t seem to get away from them. Is it just me, or are liberals hijacking every aspect of our culture? They have infiltrated Hollywood, have infiltrated the media, and now they are telling me how I am to think. I’ve had enough! I’m cancelling my globe and mail subscription and I’ve reduced my cable subcription to Fox News. I’m tired of the spin, and the voice of just a few.

What is so wrong with disagreeing with gay marriage? What is wrong with being pro-life? What is so wrong with cherishing my traditional family? What is wrong with attending my true Christian church that helps me lead an accountable life? Christians have been demonized and vilified for far too long and I am taking a stand for my Christian world view.

As a young Christian man, it is my duty to become a light on the hill and become like salt to help preserve and flavour the culture of our time. Our world needs a little more dissent and it is my goal to do just that.
