PETA (People for Euthanizing Their Animals)

According to public records from the Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, PETA killed 2,124 pets last year and placed only seven in adoptive homes. Since 1998, a total of 21,339 dogs and cats have died at the hands of PETA workers.

Despite having a $32 million budget, PETA does not operate an adoption shelter. PETA employees make no discernible effort to find homes for the thousands of pets they kill every year. Last year, the Center for Consumer Freedom petitioned Virginia’s State Veterinarian to reclassify PETA as a slaughterhouse.

The truth hurts sometimes.

You can read the rest here.

Some questions:
-Does this change your view of PETA?
-How does this fit into their mission statement?
-Does this even matter?

Scam Concerning Google (notice where "he's" from- my home town)

Notice any similarities?

They, the company, should be sued.

I typed in some bogus information on the first page of the site they link to (here and here is another) and down at the bottom in small print (on the second page- after you type in the information) it says they will bill you 70+ a month for access to their system- The Google Treasure Chest as they call it. What tipped me off was the disclaimer at the bottom of the blogs. Plus, both links were top results on

Second Chances Are For The More Deserving

"You don't shoot a little boy in the face and find Jesus. People don't find Jesus that are capable of doing things like that."
-Randy Zimmerman (Sister of Murder Victim)

When asked if it is not the Christian thing to do- to give second chances and to take in people with his background, a neighbor responded:

"There are more deserving people to give second chances to."

A direct link to the video can be found here.

Some questions:
-What is the biblical thing to do?
-Is this a black and white issue or is there some gray to it?
-Who's heart is in the right place?
-What about the children?
-Does Ray's profession of faith remove the consequences of his actions and render safeguards unneccessary?
-What position do you take?

Where The Wild Things Are

This is a book from my childhood that is now being made into a movie. I am looking forward to seeing it. You?

You've Gotta Be Kidding Me!

The new politically correct, culturally sensitive definition of mother: One who throws all moral cautions to the wind and tries to find anyone to sleep with her son in a bid to help him lose his virginity so he can say he has lived a full life!

So, let's say he loses his virginity, then what? Next up he steals something (to add to his fullness of life) and then off to murder a random stranger so as to check another one off the list? Seriously, what makes her, the mother, think that this will help him to live a full life? Really think about it. If sex fulfilled us, then happiness would be rooted in sex. Statistics show that sex does not fulfill or else psych doctors would prescribe it.

'I don't have a problem with any of it,' she said. 'He's going to Las Vegas for a few days to promote himself as an actor so who knows, he might get lucky over there. When he gets back home I've lined up a few dating agencies for him to join. I always encourage him to go to nightclubs and other places where people pick up women.

The Outrage! Going From Gay To Straight

The title of his song [Luke was gay], implying that some gays can change to heterosexuality, was sufficient to destabilize the Italian gay movement. Gay activists threatened to block the festival, and Europarlimentary member Vittorio Agnoletto asked for a European resolution to stop Povia from peforming the song. Povia, himself, received death threats. The gay association "Everyone" denounced Povia to the Procura of the Republic for alleged "homophobia." These efforts failing, gay activists then asked the Festival organizers to "counterbalance" Povia with a song by a gay singer, about "the perfection of homosexual love." That effort too, failed.

I find it a strange twist in irony when a group of people who long for acceptance, who wish so terribly to move past tolerance and into open acceptance, do the very thing they despise to another group of people as they are seen as a hindrance to their agenda.

Tolerance is a politically correct term; it gets used the same way politicians use our political system: for self gain. It has no usefulness other than it is a way for one group to "progress" to where other groups have already socially/culturally arrived or always been. However, when a group that is contrary to your stance rallies around the banner of tolerance, they are threatened and all that can be done to marginalize them will be done.

This goes to show the true nature of humanity. It goes to show that we are in need of something, someone outside ourselves that can help us to understand and know what true love really is. Once we learn to love, tolerance will no longer be a banner that some will carry. However, I fear that us learning to love will not occur on this side of death.

Ht: Stand to Reason

You can watch the video here (the quicktime version has subtitles for the lyrics).
***Another interesting story can be read here that shows the irrational lengths that one homosexual person went to enjoy the benefits of a heterosexual marriage.***

Some questions:
-Why would the oppressed turn to oppression- does this not contradict all that they stand for?
-What is a Christian's role in all of this?
-Is homosexuality a sin? Biblically is it a sin?
-In regards to the article, why do you think the crowd hissed at the pro gay speaker after the song was completed?

Earth Shattering Event Predicted By Pastor Wilkerson

A respected pastor, best-selling author and founder of a major ministry to teens predicts an imminent "an earth-shattering calamity" centered in New York City that will spread to major urban areas across the country and around the world – part of what he sees as a judgment from God.

David Wilkerson, author of "The Cross and the Switchblade," a book about his ministry to troubled New York street kids that was later made into a movie starring Pat Boone, tells readers of his blog this weekend that he is "compelled by the Holy Spirit to send out an urgent message" about his prediction.

"An earth-shattering calamity is about to happen," he writes. "It is going to be so frightening, we are all going to tremble – even the godliest among us."

What we are experiencing now is not a recession, not even a depression. We are under God’s wrath. In Psalm 11 it is written, "If the foundations are destroyed, what can the righteous do?"

"God is judging the raging sins of America and the nations," claims Wilkerson. "He is destroying the secular foundations." Wilkerson urges everyone to stockpile a 30-day supply of food and other necessities to deal with the catastrophe he foresees.

"I do not know when these things will come to pass, but I know it is not far off," Wilkerson concluded in his message. "I have unburdened my soul to you. Do with the message as you choose."

A past vice president of the Southern Baptist Convention is hoping believers pay attention to Wilkerson's message.

"I have known David Wilkerson for more than 25 years as well as many of his friends and associates," said Pastor Wiley Drake. "He is a godly man and I believe he is listening to God. I encourage each Christian to read and heed what God is saying through our brother."

Some questions:
-Does God still warn those who will listen?
-Does a God of love judge?
-What is the first thing that comes to mind when you hear of things like this? Coming from Wilkerson, does it make a difference?
-Will you stock up on food?
-If you believe the message Wilkerson prescribes to God, what will you do to repent?

The Death Of The Sunday Paper

Final Edition from Matthew Roberts on Vimeo.

Very well done video chronicling the last days of The Rocky Mountain News. I highly recommend you watch it.

Some questions:
-Is paper dead?
-Will the next generation be completely digital?
-Will the Kindle's of tomorrow be the books of our children?
-Looking past nostalgia, would this be a good move for humanity?
