|It has been reported that Cindy McCain posed for a gay website. A picture shows her with tape over her mouth. She was posing for a gay group who is fighting and in opposition to a California proposed law that would ban same-sex marriage. For some reason, I guess we all expected better of her, and of Senator McCain, but I guess it is not to be! – Dr. Mal Couch (Jan., 10)|

|The election of Scott Brown to the U.S. Senate from Massachusetts is a small moment of mercy and grace. No, our hopes are not really pinned on this event but it does, for a short period, put the brakes on what is happening in our socialistic, Democratic Congress. I have to admit that my faith is thin on this issue. I really believe that the Lord has been giving us a warning as to where this nation is going.|

|The irony of this article appearing in the English edition of Pravda (Russian on-line newspaper) defies description. Why can a Russian newspaper print the following yet the American media can't/won't report such to its American public so they can see it is beyond comprehension |
It must be said, that like the breaking of a great dam, the American descent into Marxism is happening with breath taking speed, against the back drop of a passive, hapless sheeple, excuse me dear reader, I meant people.
True, the situation has been well prepared on and off for the past century, especially the past twenty years. The initial testing grounds was conducted upon our Holy Russia and a bloody test it was. But we Russians would not just roll over and give up our freedoms and our souls, no matter how much money Wall Street poured into the fists of the Marxists.
Those lessons were taken and used to properly prepare the American populace for the surrender of their freedoms and souls, to the whims of their elites and betters.
First, the population was dumbed down through a politicized and substandard education system based on pop culture, rather then the classics. Americans know more about their favorite TV dramas than the drama in DC that directly affects their lives. They care more for their "right" to choke down a McDonalds burger or a Burger King burger than for their constitutional rights. Then they turn around and lecture us about our rights and about our "democracy". Pride blind the foolish.
Then their faith in God was destroyed, until their churches, all tens of thousands of different "branches and denominations" were for the most part little more then Sunday circuses and their televangelists and top protestant mega preachers were more then happy to sell out their souls and flocks to be on the "winning" side of one pseudo Marxist politician or another. Their flocks may complain, but when explained that they would be on the "winning" side, their flocks were ever so quick to reject Christ in hopes for earthly power. Even our Holy Orthodox churches are scandalously liberalized in America .
The final collapse has come with the election of Barack Obama. His speed in the past three months has been truly impressive. His spending and money printing has been a record setting, not just in America 's short history but in the world. If this keeps up for more then another year, and there is no sign that it will not, America at best will resemble the Weimar Republic and at worst Zimbabwe.
These past two weeks have been the most breath taking of all. First came the announcement of a planned redesign of the American Byzantine tax system, by the very thieves who used it to bankroll their thefts, losses, and swindles of hundreds of billions of dollars. These make our Russian oligarchs look little more then ordinary street thugs, in comparison. Yes, the Americans have beat our own thieves in the shear volumes. Should we congratulate them?
These men, of course, are not an elected panel but made up of appointees picked from the very financial oligarchs and their henchmen who are now gorging themselves on trillions of American dollars, in one bailout after another. They are also usurping the rights, duties, and powers of the American congress (parliament). Again, congress has put up little more than a whimper to their masters.
Then came Barack Obama's command that GM's (General Motors) president step down from leadership of his company. That is correct, dear reader, in the land of "pure" free markets, the American president now has the power, the self-given power, to fire CEOs and we can assume other employees of private companies, at will. Come hither, go dither, the centurion commands his minions.
So it should be no surprise, that the American president has followed this up with a "bold" move of declaring that he and another group of unelected, chosen stooges will now redesign the entire automotive industry and will even be the guarantee of automobile policies. I am sure that if given the chance, they would happily try and redesign it for the whole of the world, too.. Prime Minister Putin, less then two months ago, warned Obama and UK 's Blair, not to follow the path to Marxism, it only leads to disaster. Apparently, even though we suffered 70 years of this Western sponsored horror show, we know nothing, as foolish, drunken Russians, so let our "wise" Anglo-Saxon fools find out the folly of their own pride.
Again, the American public has taken this with barely a whimper...but a "free man" whimper.
So, should it be any surprise to discover that the Democratically controlled Congress of America is working on passing a new regulation that would give the American Treasury department the power to set "fair" maximum salaries, evaluate performance, and control how private companies give out pay raises and bonuses? Senator Barney Frank, a social pervert basking in his homosexuality (of course, amongst the modern, enlightened American societal norm, as well as that of the general West, homosexuality is not only not a looked down upon life choice, but is often praised as a virtue) and his Marxist enlightenment, has led this effort. He stresses that this only affects companies that receive government monies, but it is retroactive and taken to a logical extreme, this would include any company or industry that has ever received a tax break or incentive.
The Russian owners of American companies and industries should look thoughtfully at this and the option of closing their facilities down and fleeing the land of the Red as fast as possible. In other words, divest while there is still value left.
The proud American will go down into his slavery without a fight, beating his chest, and proclaiming to the world, how free he really is. The world will only snicker.

|Dr. Rick Warren recently protested a law in Uganda that makes it a death penalty to rape a young girl (or a boy) because of all the AIDS in that country. Homosexual groups asked Dr. Warren to protest the same. He stated "The freedom to make moral choices and our right to free expression are gifts endowed by God." Six Uganda churches angrily demanded that Dr. Warren apologize. Dr. Hutchins writes: "What unbelievable blasphemy when the so-called 'America's pastor' endorses sodomy as a gift from God. I would think any real Christians left in Purpose Driven churches would be hunting for the nearest exit."|

|There is a wonderful passage in Scripture that gives comfort about the afterlife that every believer needs to study! It is Isaiah 57:1-2, which reads: |
"The righteous man perishes, and no man takes it to heart; and devout men are taken away, while no one understands. For the righteous man is taken away from evil, he enters into peace; they rest in their beds, each one who walked in his upright way," says the great OT Hebrew scholar Joseph Alexander.
"Taking it to heart" is not merely feeling or appreciating, but observing and perceiving what is right and true! "Peace and rest" here means those whose bodies are in the grave, with the soul in heaven. What a blessing even from the OT! – Dr. Mal Couch (Jan., 10)

|It's a racial issue, stupid! A black doctor recently talking on TV was addressing the AIDS problem in Africa on the subject "The Late Black Race." AIDS is increasing percentage-wise among blacks five times greater than among whites. Our President, Barack Hussein Obama, recently endorsed the homosexual movement, and by this, is condemning many thousands of blacks. Dr. Noah Hutchings says the Bible warns "any nation that follows Sodom's example has signed its own death warrant. (Rom. 1; 2 Pet. 3; Jude)." – Dr. Mal Couch(Jan., 10)|

|Dr. Noah Hutchings reports that recently on a trip to Israel, his party was able to get down inside of the Eastern Gate. I did the same some twenty years ago but at that time, Muslim guards would stop you, or throw you into prison if they caught you attempting to do so. But Dr. Hutchings reports that there was no one around, and he concluded, "Something is going on at the temple Mount!" He writes: "No Muslims were in evidence, and only Jewish guards were on duty. For the first time the tour group visited the inside of the Golden Gate without restraint. There seemed to be a feeling among Jews that I talked with that something was about to happen, exactly what, they did not seem to know." |
We know for certain that the antichrist will pull off some plan in regard to building the restored temple on the northern area of the temple platform. I am not saying that this is going to happen now, but there could be some negotiations going on with the Arabs and the Jews that we do not know about.
At the inside of the Eastern Gate, it appears that the area is described in detail in prophecy in Ezekiel 40-48. – Dr. Mal Couch (Jan.,10)

|The great OT scholar Joseph Alexander, who taught at Princeton some 15 years before our American Civil War, wrote some 500 pages in his Hebrew commentary on the book of Isaiah. Now imagine: this book was penned those many years before the Civil War!|
Dr. Alexander had a bunch of mistakes in his first printing of the book. We often think that such old scholars wrote impeccably and would not have made any literary booboos! But this is not so. Thus, Dr. Alexander had to make a correction, with humor, and he wrote:
"Since the printing of the volume was completed, the typographical errors have been found to be more numerous than was expected, although for the most part less injurious to the work than discreditable to the author. Instead of resorting to the usual apologies of distance from the press, and inexperience in the business, or appealing to the fact that the sheets could be subjected only once to his revision, he prefers to throw himself upon the candor and indulgence of his readers, and especially of those who have experienced the same mortification!"
Now that takes guts! And a lot of humor in the spirit! – Dr. Mal Couch (Jan,. 10)

Here is the speech of Geert Wilders, Chairman, Party for Freedom, the Netherlands, at the Four Seasons, New York, introducing an Alliance of Patriots and announcing the Facing Jihad Conference in Jerusalem.
I come to America with a mission. All is not well in the old world. There is a tremendous danger looming, and it is very difficult to be optimistic. We might be in the final stages of the Islamization of Europe. This not only is a clear and present danger to the future of Europe itself, it is a threat to America and the sheer survival of the West. The United States as the last bastion of Western civilization, facing an Islamic Europe.
First I will describe the situation on the ground in Europe. Then, I will say a few things about Islam. To close I will tell you about a meeting in Jerusalem.
The Europe you know is changing.
You have probably seen the landmarks. But in all of these cities, sometimes a few blocks away from your tourist destination, there is another world. It is the world of the parallel society created by Muslim mass-migration.
All throughout Europe a new reality is rising: entire Muslim neighborhoods where very few indigenous people reside or are even seen. And if they are, they might regret it. This goes for the police as well. It's the world of head scarves, where women walk around in figureless tents, with baby strollers and a group of children. Their husbands, or slaveholders if you prefer, walk three steps ahead. With mosques on many street corners. The shops have signs you and I cannot read. You will be hard-pressed to find any economic activity. These are Muslim ghettos controlled by religious fanatics. These are Muslim neighborhoods, and they are mushrooming in every city across Europe. These are the building-blocks for territorial control of increasingly larger portions of Europe, street by street, neighborhood by neighborhood, city by city.
There are now thousands of mosques throughout Europe. With larger congregations than there are in churches. And in every European city there are plans to build super-mosques that will dwarf every church in the region. Clearly, the signal is: we rule.
Many European cities are already one-quarter Muslim: just take Amsterdam, Marseille and Malmo in Sweden. In many cities the majority of the under-18 population is Muslim.. Paris is now surrounded by a ring of Muslim neighborhoods. Mohammed is the most popular name among boys in many cities.
In some elementary schools in Amsterdam the farm can no longer be mentioned, because that would also mean mentioning the pig, and that would be an insult to Muslims.
Many state schools in Belgium and Denmark only serve halal food to all pupils. In once-tolerant Amsterdam gays are beaten up almost exclusively by Muslims. Non-Muslim women routinely hear 'whore, whore'. Satellite dishes are not pointed to local TV stations, but to stations in the country of origin.
In France school teachers are advised to avoid authors deemed offensive to Muslims, including Voltaire and Diderot; the same is increasingly true of Darwin. The history of the Holocaust can no longer be taught because of Muslim sensitivity.
In England sharia courts are now officially part of the British legal system. Many neighborhoods in France are no-go areas for women without head scarves. Last week a man almost died after being beaten up by Muslims in Brussels, because he was drinking during the Ramadan.
Jews are fleeing France in record numbers, on the run for the worst wave of anti-Semitism since World War II. French is now commonly spoken on the streets of Tel Aviv and Netanya, Israel. I could go on forever with stories like this. Stories about Islamization.
A total of fifty-four million Muslims now live in Europe. San Diego University recently calculated that a staggering 25 percent of the population in Europe will be Muslim just 12 years from now. Bernhard Lewis has predicted a Muslim majority by the end of this century.
Now these are just numbers. And the numbers would not be threatening if the Muslim-immigrants had a strong desire to assimilate. But there are few signs of that. The Pew Research Center reported that half of French Muslims see their loyalty to Islam as greater than their loyalty to France. One-third of French Muslims do not object to suicide attacks. The British Centre for Social Cohesion reported that one-third of British Muslim students are in favor of a worldwide caliphate. Muslims demand what they call 'respect'. And this is how we give them respect. We have Muslim official state holidays.
The Christian-Democratic attorney general is willing to accept sharia in the Netherlands if there is a Muslim majority. We have cabinet members with passports from Morocco and Turkey.
Muslim demands are supported by unlawful behavior, ranging from petty crimes and random violence, for example against ambulance workers and bus drivers, to small-scale riots. Paris has seen its uprising in the low-income suburbs, the banlieus. I call the perpetrators 'settlers'. Because that is what they are. They do not come to integrate into our societies; they come to integrate our society into their Dar-al-Islam. Therefore, they are settlers.
Much of this street violence I mentioned is directed exclusively against non-Muslims, forcing many native people to leave their neighborhoods, their cities, their countries. Moreover, Muslims are now a swing vote not to be ignored..
The second thing you need to know is the importance of Mohammed the prophet. His behavior is an example to all Muslims and cannot be criticized. Now, if Mohammed had been a man of peace, let us say like Ghandi and Mother Theresa wrapped in one, there would be no problem. But Mohammed was a warlord, a mass murderer, a pedophile, and had several marriages - at the same time. Islamic tradition tells us how he fought in battles, how he had his enemies murdered and even had prisoners of war executed. Mohammed himself slaughtered the Jewish tribe of Banu Qurayza. If it is good for Islam, it is good. If it is bad for Islam, it is bad.
Let no one fool you about Islam being a religion. Sure, it has a god, and a here-after, and 72 virgins. But in its essence Islam is a political ideology. It is a system that lays down detailed rules for society and the life of every person. Islam wants to dictate every aspect of life. Islam means 'submission'. Islam is not compatible with freedom and democracy, because what it strives for is sharia. If you want to compare Islam to anything, compare it to communism or national-socialism, these are all totalitarian ideologies.
Now you know why Winston Churchill called Islam 'the most retrograde force in the world', and why he compared Mein Kampf to the Quran. The public has wholeheartedly accepted the Palestinian narrative, and sees Israel as the aggressor. I have lived in this country and visited it dozens of times. I support Israel. First, because it is the Jewish homeland after two thousand years of exile up to and including Auschwitz, second because it is a democracy, and third because Israel is our first line of defense.
This tiny country is situated on the fault line of jihad, frustrating Islam's territorial advance. Israel is facing the front lines of jihad, like Kashmir, Kosovo, the Philippines, Southern Thailand, Darfur in Sudan, Lebanon, and Aceh in Indonesia. Israel is simply in the way. The same way West-Berlin was during the Cold War.
The war against Israel is not a war against Israel. It is a war against the West. It is jihad. Israel is simply receiving the blows that are meant for all of us. If there would have been no Israel, Islamic imperialism would have found other venues to release its energy and its desire for conquest. Thanks to Israeli parents who send their children to the army and lay awake at night, parents in Europe and America can sleep well and dream, unaware of the dangers looming.
Many in Europe argue in favor of abandoning Israel in order to address the grievances of our Muslim minorities. But if Israel were, God forbid, to go down, it would not bring any solace to the West It would not mean our Muslim minorities would all of a sudden change their behavior, and accept our values. On the contrary, the end of Israel would give enormous encouragement to the forces of Islam.
They would, and rightly so, see the demise of Israel as proof that the West is weak, and doomed. The end of Israel would not mean the end of our problems with Islam, but only the beginning. It would mean the start of the final battle for world domination. If they can get Israel, they can get everything. So-called journalists volunteer to label any and all critics of Islamization as a 'right-wing extremists' or 'racists'. In my country, the Netherlands, 60 percent of the population now sees the mass immigration of Muslims as the number one policy mistake since World War II. And another 60 percent sees Islam as the biggest threat. Yet there is a danger greater danger than terrorist attacks, the scenario of America as the last man standing. The lights may go out in Europe faster than you can imagine. An Islamic Europe means a Europe without freedom and democracy, an economic wasteland, an intellectual nightmare, and a loss of military might for America - as its allies will turn into enemies, enemies with atomic bombs. With an Islamic Europe, it would be up to America alone to preserve the heritage of Rome, Athens and Jerusalem.
Dear friends, liberty is the most precious of gifts. My generation never had to fight for this freedom, it was offered to us on a silver platter, by people who fought for it with their lives. All throughout Europe, American cemeteries remind us of the young boys who never made it home, and whose memory we cherish. My generation does not own this freedom; we are merely its custodians. We can only hand over this hard won liberty to Europe's children in the same state in which it was offered to us. We cannot strike a deal with mullahs and imams. Future generations would never forgive us. We cannot squander our liberties. We simply do not have the right to do so.
We have to take the necessary action now to stop this Islamic stupidity from destroying the free world that we know.

|Well, I have done it! I have read the entire text of proposed House Bill 3200: The Affordable Health Care Choices Act of 2009. I studied it with particular emphasis from my area of expertise, constitutional law. I was frankly concerned that parts of the proposed law that were being discussed might be unconstitutional. What I found was far worse than what I had heard or expected. |
To begin with, much of what has been said about the law and its implications is in fact true, despite what the Democrats and the media are saying. The law does provide for rationing of health care, particularly where senior citizens and other classes of citizens are involved, free health care for illegal immigrants, free abortion services, and probably forced participation in abortions by members of the medical profession.
The Bill will also eventually force private insurance companies out of business, and put everyone into a government run system. All decisions about personal health care will ultimately be made by federal bureaucrats, and most of them will not be health care professionals. Hospital admissions, payments to physicians, and allocations of necessary medical devices will be strictly controlled by the government.
However, as scary as all of that is, it just scratches the surface. In fact, I have concluded that this legislation really has no intention of providing affordable health care choices. Instead it is a convenient cover for the most massive transfer of power to the Executive Branch of government that has ever occurred, or even been contemplated. If this law - or a similar one is adopted, major portions of the Constitution of the United States will effectively have been destroyed.
The first thing to go will be the masterfully crafted balance of power between the Executive, Legislative, and Judicial branches of the U.S. Government. The Congress will be transferring to the Obama Administration authority in a number of different areas over the lives of the American people, and the businesses they own.
The irony is that the Congress doesn't have any authority to legislate in most of those areas to begin with! I defy anyone to read the text of the U.S. Constitution and find any authority granted to the members of Congress to regulate health care.
This legislation also provides for access, by the appointees of the Obama administration, of all of YOUR personal healthcare in direct violation of the specific provisions of the 4th Amendment to the Constitution information, your personal financial information, and the information of your employer, physician, and hospital. All of this is protecting against unreasonable searches and seizures. You can also forget about the right to privacy.
That will have been legislated into oblivion regardless of what the 3rd and 4th Amendments may provide.
If you decide not to have healthcare insurance, or if you have private insurance that is not deemed acceptable to the Health Choices Administrator appointed by Obama, there will be a tax imposed on you. It is called a tax instead of a fine because of the intent to avoid application of the due process clause of the 5th Amendment. However, that doesn't work because since there is nothing in the law that allows you to contest or appeal the imposition of the tax, it is definitely depriving someone of property without the due process of law.
So, there are three of those pesky amendments that the far left hate so much, out the original ten in the Bill of Rights, that are effectively nullified by this law It does NOT stop there though.
The 9th Amendment that provides: The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.
The 10th Amendment states: The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are preserved to the States respectively, or to the people. Under the provisions of this piece of Congressional handiwork neither the people nor the states are going to have ANY rights or powers at all in many areas that once were theirs to control.
I could write many more pages about this legislation, but I think you get the idea. This is not about health care; it is about seizing power and limiting rights. Article 6 of the Constitution requires the members of both houses of Congress to "be bound by oath or affirmation to support the Constitution." If I was a member of Congress I would not be able to vote for this legislation or anything like it, without feeling I was violating that sacred oath or affirmation. If I voted for it anyway, I would hope the American people would hold me accountable.
For those who might doubt the nature of this threat, I suggest they consult the source, the US Constitution, and Bill of Rights. There you can see exactly what we are about to have taken from us.

|Thanks, Dr. Couch:|
The Lord has gotten me on the right track listening to you and the other good dispensationalists you have on your Gathering Storm monthly CD. It took me a while to discover it because I had to wade through all of the legalistic junk of my denomination.
It is amazing how all of this Amil "smoke" has blinded so many people to think that we are doing just great and no judgment is coming! People will come every Sunday to church and bring their big Bible, yet they won't sit down and read them and ask the Lord to teach them, which He said He would do. The world is on fire and these dried up teachings have no water to throw on the fire!
The leadership is the main problem and they don't know it yet!
I guess that is good reason the Lord calls us sheep! I hope some day I can come out and visit your church. I would even love to come to the Scofield schooling you have out there. The Lord is not finished with me until I get raptured or die and go to be with Him.
I love you and your family and your ministry. I am sharing it with my family and friends. You are always in my prayers. God bless and thanks for all of your hard work with the other men you interview, and Lacy!

|I would not spend the time or money to go see Avatar but what others report it is part of the ongoing evilness of Hollywood. Some say this is the worse garbage to come out of Hollywood in some time.|
The premise is that we are terrible humans (which of course we are) who rape and pillage the characters of another world. The enemy is America with U.S. Marines who go about to annihilate the peaceful forest people of another planet. (Do you get it, green, green?) The Marines are shown as mindless killers who enjoy the slaughter of peaceful aliens.
The worst insult is that some of the Marines turn on their own buddies and joyfully begin to kill them. The movie actually wants you to cheer for the aliens as they begin to kill and maim the mean & evil U.S. Marines. This movie is anti-military, anti-American, and anti-human race! While I haven't seen the movie, and don't plan to, I believe this report because this is what Hollywood is all about—destroying America in any way it possibly can! – Dr. Mal Couch (1-10)

|We knew the push would come. The push to put women in combat even though all of the evidence is against this practice.|
Major General Anthony Cucolo, who leads some 22,000 troops in Iraq, has called for the court martial of women who become pregnant while deployed. Of course, the liberal and communist senators such as: Barbara Mikulski, Barbara Boxer, Jeanne Shaheen, and Kirsten Gillibrand, have raised a fire storm, saying this is intrusive in the freedom of women, who have the right to get pregnant when they want to. The General rightly argues that the drag on the military is overwhelming and does a disservice to the war effort. Can you imagine if men had some kind of equal right to do personally what they wanted, and yet had a job to do that would be hindered by their personal actions? By the way, it was in communist Russia, in the beginning, that called for equality of women even in combat. All sex differences were to be eliminated in Soviet Russia!
The bigger issue is that women are clearly not qualified to be in combat positions. And, you do not put your children and women in harm's way. Women want that so they can show, even if they are wounded or killed, that they are equal with men, and of course they are not!
The General argues that he has a responsibility to all the troops and can do with them as he pleases as the commander-in-chief of the 22,000 combatants.
Now women are pushing for combat flying and think that it is their right to do so if they wish! We knew that the push would not stop. The camel is getting its nose in the tent and it cannot be stopped.
Everyone, especially pastors, need to get the new book out (2007) "Co-ed Combat" by Kingsley Browne, published by Sentinel. It is full of objective statistics that show women are not capable of handling rough and realistic combat situations. Plus, the fact of the horrible mistreatment of women who are captured! If I had the money, I'd purchase the book for everyone who would be interested. What's true also, is that we now have a new generation who sees no problem with women in combat, homosexuality, abortions, etc. They have been acclimated to accept the lies!
But the apostles Paul and Peter tell us plainly what the roles of women are. Women are to be inclined "to good works, as BEFITS WOMEN making a claim to godliness" (1 Tim. 2:10). In other words, the role of women is to set a standard of godliness, and womanhood and motherhood that cannot be replaced. Women do not know of the influence they have by being a woman. Dr. Lacy Couch is convinced that many women do not like being women! They want to be in the company of men and they repudiate their own sex and yes, even some want to be men!
Peter adds: the roles of women are so important. Women are to submit to their husbands, win them over to the Lord "by their behavior." They are examples by their "chaste and respectful behavior." They are not to live simply by the external "but by the hidden person of the heart, with the imperishable quality of a gentile and quiet spirit, which is precious in the sight of God." They, by their very nature, are the "weaker vessels, because they are women" (1 Pet. 3:1-7).
Are the churches and the parents telling their girls this? I hear of more younger men who say that they like a certain girl because "she is so strong." That is not an outstanding quality for a woman. The things Paul and Peter mention are the qualities that God says are most important!
Has the culture and the society won in dictating to Christians what really counts in life? It seems so! – Dr. Mal Couch (Jan., 10)

|How do you define arrogance? A friend of mine sent me a bunch of pictures of American military cemeteries around the world, and especially in Europe. Thousands of men died in war after war, trying to liberate various countries where people were held in slavery. This is a sign of our arrogance? I guess our President, Barack Hussein Obama, would think so! |

|American law is gone nutty because we are out of biblical and theological common sense. We have no concept of what is just, and what is right and wrong! So we spend millions of dollars trying to prop up our justice system, and along the way, are ignoring what the Bible says about swift retribution. |
The Bible tells us that justice must be swift: "If the sentence against an evil deed is not executed quickly, then the hearts of the sons of men among them are given fully to do [more] evil" (Eccl. 8:11).
A friend sent me a series of pictures of a bad guy in China who was holding a small boy hostage and who was giving the police three demands. But the police did not wait long—they instantly blew him away, ending his life and ending his spree of evil. In America we would have handled the issue with great ignorance and foolishness that would go against the Bible. We would:

|One Israeli lawmaker recently said "Barack Hussein Obama is our enemy!" And, "He is terrible for the peace process!" Being politically correct is going to sink America. Being PC is really dishonest.
