For the most part I agree with Bruce Willis. He is against gun control and infringement upon our 2nd Amendment rights. However he does not believe violence and crime in Hollywood/movies/TV should be seen as an influence. I beg to differ; I believe we are definitely influenced by what we see, hear and watch.

“If you don’t have a Sword, Sell your Cloak and go buy one”


The following is a list of NRA National Organizations with Anti Gun Policies

http://nraila.org/Issues/FactSheets/Read.aspx?ID=15

After reading through it, I was angered by those involved in movies and TV who have made fortunes off of violence. The fact that guns or weapons are used and yet these actors are outspoken against using them in the civilian culture is hypocrisy at its worst.

Actors like Kevin Bacon, Richard Belzer, Benjamin Bratt, Sylvester Stallone,Steve Buscemi,George Clooney, Kevin Costner, Matt Damon, Michael Douglas, Andy Garcia, Louis Gossett, Jr., Mark Harmon, Robert Redford, and Sean Connery to name a few have made millions using some form of armed weapon on the big screen or TV.matt damon

The list goes on and on of companies like Ben and Jerry’s Ice Cream, the YWCA and Hallmark Cards who share this fight on gun control.

Many listed are multimedia companies or connections to the movie and TV industry. They don’t have a problem luring people to watch on-screen bloodshed and savagery as long as they make money. Yet, the real world should be absent of protecting families, schools and neighborhoods
with anything armed or considered a gun.

Instead of restricting use of our 2nd Amendment rights, why aren’t Diane Feinstein and her cronies going after Hollywood? In the last 40 years there is a marked difference in the programs on TV and movies.

Did Andy and Barney use foul language?

John Wayne and the “Rifleman” used rifles and guns; but only to fight evil.

Can you imagine sexually explicit scenes on “I love Lucy” or Mary Tyler Moore?

And what about teaching the Gay Lifestyle on “Leave it to Beaver” or “Eight is Enough?”

Today I received in the mail a letter from Franklin Graham of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association. The purpose was to get the word out that restricting guns will not stop bad people from doing bad things. It was clear the emphasis should be placed on the mental health of our country.

The BGEA immediately sent a Rapid Response team the day of the Sandy Hook Elementary shooting. They are presently training 10,000 trainers across the country to aid in servicing churches in a program called “My Hope.” Our country is in desperate need of a massive change to fight off the evil that has invaded us.grahams

The summary of the letter was and I quote, “The problem –the real crux of the issue-lies not in the instruments of violence used, but in the evil and depraved heart of man.”

When Jesus wrote Luke 22:36 about selling your cloak to buy a sword, he meant it for protection and to fight off the enemy. He warned us of “wars and rumors of wars” along with the everyday battles of life. He gave us the right
to protect ourselves and our families by using weapons.

He would rather our hearts be changed to eliminate the assault of hatred and disorder caused by those who harbor such emotions, but he knows what we deal with.

And God said,

Psalm 120:7 “I am a man of peace; but when I speak, they are for war.”

Knee Deep Blockheads


Knee deep in the media world is a conspiracy so loud and obnoxious we have overlooked one very important issue.brand journalism

Journalism use to be real journalism. You know: when political views weren’t at the forefront of a story or article. Oh, some may have been leaning one way or another but the war had not started and it wasn’t as noticeable as today.

Sad to say this but it is difficult to know who is a real journalist/reporter. Ratings have become the competition for no-news,
sick-news or whatever they can find to report.

For instance: Do I really care about the filth and unpatriotic insanity cascading from Michael Moore’s big mouth?

Or what about the “five mistakes people make when buying pet insurance?” Really?

Of course there is the toothbrush causing a delay at the Atlanta Airport. Investigators held up a flight due to a suspicious noise coming from a travel bag. Turns out it was a vibrating toothbrush.

But…sometimes it backfires. Yes, the newspaper in New York that splashed gun owners in their area on a Google Earth map have been referred to as “insanity.” Ex-burglars turned criminal investigators reported “having a gun list is like gold.” Why would anyone rob a house with guns in it? The following link is the story which is actually funny but not really.

Air Force One: Protected

Air Force One: Protected

Escaping the Middle East crisis, worries of nuclear war, crime and violence is virtually impossible.  There is always another accident waiting to happen, natural disasters one after another and a new strain of flu. The devil is front page news.

Our technology as advanced as it is allows for much more to be seen than ever before. Stress and anxiety surround you first thing in the morning before your feet hit the floor; I would label it “misery overload.”

And then…..one of those many random questions you asked God 2 years ago shows up with an answer(s).  A fleeting moment of thought becomes a “brain freeze” because that particular question results in a jaw-dropping, shock absorbing divine utterance you didn’t see coming. A one sentence deliberation that changes your outlook completely.

After digesting a resolution that confirmed to some degree your own position, it is so powerful it rearranges the priorities of what you think, how you think and future responses.

As we recline in our recliners observing the people we do not know, it is easy to assume what we view as genuine, or concrete. Listening to opinions, political views rammed down our throats and pictures of the unimaginable is a marketing tactic gone awry. Feed them what you want them to hear over and over until they believe it. Listen, read and pour into their conscience a wrong so wrong, dwelling on anything else is impossible. Doing so would place you in the “pool of intolerant inconsiderate blockheads.”

Unexpected forerunners from high places somehow land in your path and awaken a deception the devil has unfortunately mastered. He laughs as many fall prey repeatedly to his lies, fraud and double-dealing.

What he doesn’t know is the stamps of wisdom God has placed in the center of what appears to be the most insufferable conditions.

Hebrews. 4:13 “Nothing in all creation is hidden from God’s sight. Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of him to whom we must give account.”

Those stamps of wisdom are cementing their footprints of God’s truth in the sand of the hearts of many right in the middle of the devil’s wake. He just hasn’t figured that out.

An Advocate for “Nihilism?”


The description of “nihilism” has been thrashed about by well-meaning but mis-guided individuals who claim to know Jesus. As we sit back and do nothing but hide behind the facades of reality, we are pinned up on a cork board of the intellects of religious modernism.

The radical idea of our freedom to bear arms is a counterfeit to our pro-life stance; this written as they protest the evils of war as if to stand unarmed defenseless.

Maybe they should borrow David’s slingshot.  Didn’t he fight against the Philistine with God’s blessing?gun control

Had Israel not continued to fight, the lineage of Jesus would not exist. It is almost an insult to God to believe otherwise.

The following blog-post caught my attention last night. And then I exploded.

http://pubtheologian.com/2012/12/17/christianity-gun-violence-the-nihilism-of-mike-huckabee/

After this theologian of modernistic behavior or whatever he claims to be blatantly called out Governor Huckabee for his stance on guns, he twisted it around other issues.

How can you believe in guns and be pro-life?

How can you justify what that madman did?

He called those of us who believe “God has been taken out of schools” had nothing to do with what the shooter did, as “nihilism.”  In other words a façade to cover up the real issues; or ignore them such as “Gun control.”

Luke 22:36 “He said to them, “But now if you have a purse, take it, and also a bag; and if you don’t have a sword, sell your cloak and buy one.”

He seems to like that word “nihilism.” He defined the 1980 Secretary of the Interior as one for his “lack of interest in environmental concerns since Jesus is returning soon.” What?

This was the kicker. “Christians who believe in Pro-life yet glorify in the culture of death, worshipping the altar of violence and pledge allegiance to arms” and so on and so on. His words are sickening.

Iraq Air Force

He had the wrong person read that post. My fierce guardianship and protection of our Armed forces will not allow me to keep my mouth shut when one such coward spews his hate for those who gave/give him the freedom to speak!

His jugular points are nothing but notably negative deceptions; he has postmarked many Christians into a “box” full of useless paper ads. To be honest, I am not sure which side he is on.

His barrage of defilement towards Christians is somewhat questionable; especially to one who may be secular. The use of the words “many” or “refuse” or “versions” of Christianity he displays would do nothing more than confuse a non-believer.

However, it is indisputable his efforts to claim Governor Huckabee as a gun-toting, bomb throwing junkie who happens to be a Preacher on the side. I am no Preacher, but he may as well add my name to his list of Huckabee wanna bees…….as he so specifically spelled out we sanction for preemptive wars, and remain quiet as we drop  bombs on innocent people.2nd amendment

To ease my infuriated soul while writing him a nasty reply, I cordially and “largely” invited him to come to our Air Force base. Spelling out the necessities of our heroes who have and do fight daily for him to spew his anti-military hate, I advised him we do live behind a bomb site. I thought he needed to be aware that I have confiscated some of those unused bombs to do just as he said; drop on innocent heads…I won’t say it.

As an addition to my speech to Mr. Snider I made it clear how safe I feel living here. I can only imagine the amount of ammo/weapons stashed.

His agenda that most Christians are “environmentally challenged war mongers” is not in my Bible.

So, where did he get his Theology? It must be “nihilism.”

P. S.  He was referenced by the LGBT community for his support of Gay rights after a speech he gave August 13, 2012. I guess he hasn’t read Leviticus 18:22 “You shall not lie with a man as with a woman; it is an abomination.”
