I really don't have strong feelings about the passing of Mr Jackson.
I will not mourn him. Rather I lament for the children he victimized.
In the day he was great, but he destroyed himself with perversion. Yes, he got away scott-free in the trial, but money can buy justice. The people knew better, and Jackson's sales plummeted as the veil dropped lower and lower over his monstrous sin.
“Ye shall know them by their fruit.”
--His fruit reveals an evil man. He squandered his wealth in perverted indulgences.
Michael Jackson benighted in the media, will be remembered in history as a pedophile who loathed himself. He destroyed his own face trying to look like a white woman, just as he destroyed the lives of children.
Jackson's increasing irrational behavior in the last few years stands as evidence of increasing drug dependence. Drug use, personality alteration, brain damage, death.
I never played the PC game. There is no nice way to say this:
Its sad, but he's going to reap what he has sown. Hell is a very real place.
There no evidence of a deathbed conversion. Jackson grew up in a cult, converted to islam, and his last conscious act was to abuse drugs. Likely he never knew the true Christ.
Eternity may come calling sooner that people like to think. There is no second chance

Short article, worth the click to read.
Nothing the US did in Iraq could ever constitute a war crime that could be prosecuted by the International Criminal Court.
This is the view of Richard Goldstone, a former chief international war crimes prosecutor and international law expert.
"I don't believe that any allegation that I have read or heard against the United States leaders comes anywhere near the sorts of crimes that the ICC has been set up to investigate. Genocide, crimes against humanity, serious war crimes - it just doesn't measure up."
This is my favorite part:
Under President Bush the US actively worked against the International Criminal Court putting a bill on the statute books, which became known unofficially as The Hague Invasion Act.
The American Service Members Protection Act, its real name, actually threatens American lawyers with legal action should they ever work on a case which could lead to a US citizen being put before the ICC. And it ultimately would allow US troops to come and free anyone on trial in The Hague, hence the unofficial name.
Heh. The Euro wimps really hate that part.
Democratic Underground posters are weeping, wailing and gnashing their teeth at the news. No torture trials (see the post below), and no war crimes trials. The ICC was the last hope of the unpatriotic left.
The Bottom Line folks is this: The previous admin will NOT be prosecuted. Not by Lord Obama and his Amazing Democrat friends. Not by the ICC. Not by anyone!

The Democrats have attempted to use the torture issue for political purposes. They abandoned the idea of putting the previous administration on trial when it became clear that the democratic leadership had approved these same methods. Since any attempt to go after Bush for these policies would drag Pelosi, Reid, and other Democrats down as well, you will never see this issue reopened again.
Certainly Obama has ended the policy…or has he? His Executive Order only forbade the military from torture unless it was needed. In short, Obama’s policy remains the same as Bush’s policy. Obama will keep Gitmo open, just like Bush. And he will keep the military tribunals just like Bush. So nothing really changed under Obama.
Certainly using torture on prisoners is nothing new. Bill Clinton used to send muslim terrorists to Egyptian prisons for real torture sessions. I guess the left has no problem with real torture when they are in power. President Bush never used real torture. He used discomfort, humiliation, but not real torture.
The entire argument in Washington was never about torture. It was all about demonizing Bush policies to win the next election. The old Bush policies of torture, imprisonment, and tribunals are now Obama policies. Indeed, Obama has stated that some prisoners may never, ever be let go. Hope and change. There is NO hope and NO change for the muslim prisoners of Gitmo.
Here is the Truth:
We don't torture at Gitmo. Water boarding works or it would not be done. In fact, only three prisoners have endured water boarding. And Obama reserves the right to water board them again.
Water Boarding is NOT torture. A conservative talk show host, Man Cow subjected himself to 7 seconds worth, and he declared it torture. It was not. Man Cow was immediately able to continue talking. What he experienced was extreme discomfort, but he did not suffer lasting pain, nor did he require medical aid afterwards.
Discomfort like this is called aggressive interrogation. Its not pleasant, but neither is it torture. Man Cow endured 7 seconds. The 3 terrorists endured 14 seconds. And they talked afterwards which is why we used this. 14 seconds of discomfort is NOT torture.
Torture has been redefined by the left.
The American military does not beat detainees. Our muslim enemies torture our soldiers to death.
If we drape an Israeli flag around a terrorists shoulders, and threaten to send pictures home to his friends...the left calls that torture.
If we show puppet shows to Gitmo detainees about how its wrong to kill...
the left calls that torture.
Turning up and down a standard air conditioner is not torture, but it gets these guys to talk. And that’s the point. If they didn't talk under such pressure, we wouldn't be doing it.
America doesn't torture. Whiny anti-war liberals say we do, but we don't.
We will aggressively interrogate. And I'm not ashamed that we do. Nor am I a lesser Christian for believing that.
The prisoners in Gitmo are illegal enemy combatants (read terrorists) taken from the field of combat. These are some of the most evil people on earth. Even with Obama, we may never be able to release some of them. If you are at all concerned about their plight, realize one thing: They chose to be a terrorist. If they don’t like their treatment, too bad, so sad. Sucks to be them.
There is no pie in the sky. Sin and evil exist in the world. Pacifist policies do nothing to protect the people. We need to deal with evil, not ignore it. Protecting Americans from terrorism is more important than playing politically correct games with our security.
Bottom line: These interrogations STOPPED terror attacks. And that justifies it all.

And a special tip o’ the hat to “Nutcasé, Marquis d'Ass-Uniball” at FSTDT for losing yet another debate with me. Christians 3, Atheists 0

I post on a Christian discussion board. Atheists from another (loser) board, FSTDT send an unending line of trolls to argue on our site. I have learned a few things about them.
Atheists come demanding evidence. But they discount anything that disproves their pet theories, no matter how well founded that evidence is.
Simply because I am a Christian, anything I have to say will never be good enough for an atheist. (don't believe me, visit an atheist site, the sheer hatred/bigotry towards Christians is amazing. I always thought atheists to be unemotional in their unbelief, but they hate people of faith!)
An honest atheist is an agnostic because he must admit he doesn't have enough evidence to know if God is there or not. (an interesting aside, there are no militant agnostic organizations out to stamp out Christianity, only the radical atheists are doing that. Agnostics just don't care.)
At its core atheism IS a religion. It takes faith to take insufficient evidence and jump to the conclusion that there is no God. All our arguments mean nothing to the atheist, not because of any validity or lack thereof: but because we are the heretics in the religion of atheism. Atheism cannot support its philosophy with logic, so they must ignore/fabricate faults with all arguments to the contrary.
Pride is the sin that is killing the atheist. Admitting he may be wrong is a violation of his religion. especially when he considers himself mentally superior to mindless followers of faith. That's why arguments with an atheist always go in a circle.
An atheist is the most close minded person you will ever meet.
The Holy Spirit is the only one who can reach past the pride and self deification in an atheist's heart. Prayer is our best weapon.
A tip of the hat to the boys at FSTDT who have sent me many comments filled with profanity.
I have learned that atheists are also the least tolerant of people as well.

From Leviticus to the Destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah, God has been consistent about how He felt about homosexuality. But it fits into a nutshell right here in Corinthians.
1 Cor. 6:9-10, "Or do you not know that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals, nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, shall inherit the kingdom of God."
The Word is clear. Unrepentant (practicing) homosexuals who die in their sin, GO TO HELL. They can go to church, they can call themselves a Christian...but if they are practicing homosexuals when they die--they will spend eternity in Hell.
This passage lists a number of sins that offer the same consequences for unrepentance. An unrepentant thief goes straight to hell as well.
BUT, no other sin listed in that passage has a number of followers out to forcibly legalize their sin-calling sin a civil right.
When Jesus stopped the stoning of the adulteress, He told her to. "Go and sin no more." Repentance doesn't mean perfection, or a lack of struggle...The sin must stop! If a gay or lesbian isn't even attempting to stop the sin-They will burn: end of story.
The Bible is not a politically correct document. God doesn’t care about the opinions of kings or pop culture. The Bible is God’s divine revelation to man. A person does not get to pick and chose which of God’s Words he wants to believe. It’s all or nothing. Being a fundamentalist is believing that God meant what He said.
The bottom line is this: Jesus can transform you into a new being. If He can take a drunkard from this list and give that person the strength to throw off the chains of addiction, so God can transform the homosexual. It’s not by your strength, but by His.
