PATRIOT'S BIBLE - USA Today and other newspapers this week featured a new Patriot's Bible published by Thomas Nelson. The new Bible uses Scriptures to shed light on the Christian nature of the founding of the United States. The Patriot's Bible is available at the Religious Freedom Coalition Bookstore. Please note: You can buy the Bible cheaper at Amazon if you don't mind doing business with a company that sells satanic and occult literature as well as pornography.
HUCK-PAC AND OBAMA - Governor Mike Huckabee founded a very active political action committee after he ended his run for president last year. This week he featured in the blog section my op-ed on President Barack Obama, who declared June as Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgendered Pride Month. Read Op-ed here
WASHINGTON POST SELLS ACCESS TO WHITE HOUSE - Not much about the Obama White House surprises me any more, but when the Washington Post offered to sell access to high level White House officials for fees ranging from $25,000 to $250,000, I was surprised. The offer was in a flyer circulated to health care lobbyists this past Wednesday. One of the lobbyists was so embarrassed by the invitation to the home of the publisher of the Washington Post that he handed the flyer over to Politico.com. Think about the implications ... a national newspaper asking for money from lobbyists in return for private access to high level members of the Obama Administration. Read more (Update ... Post forced to cancel event)
JOHN Q. ADAMS ON THE 4th OF JULY - From John Quincy Adams' oration on July 4th, 1837: "Is it not that, in the chain of human events, the birthday of the nation is indissolubly linked with the birthday of the Savior? That it forms a leading event in the progress of the gospel dispensation? Is it not that the Declaration of Independence first organized the social compact on the foundation of the Redeemer's mission upon earth? That it laid the corner stone of human government upon the first precepts of Christianity, and gave to the world the first irrevocable pledge of the fulfillment of the prophecies, announced directly from Heaven at the birth of the Savior and predicted by the greatest of the Hebrew prophets six hundred years before?" Read full oration at Wallbuilders Very different from the remarks of the current president, who wants to be the "champion" of those who practice sodomy.

CHRISTIAN YOUTH CAMP IN JORDAN NEEDS WATER - There is a Christian camp for youth in Jordan, which is one of the few Middle Eastern nations that still has a sizable Christian population. I cannot name the camp here, or tell about its location. I can tell you that because of the nature of the geography of Jordan, water must be trucked in each day to the camp. Every week there is a new group of about 200 kids who come to the camp from various churches. During the course of the summer thousands of young people from kindergarten through high school will attend Vacation Bible School at the camp. This summer the water will cost $5,000 to purchase and truck into the camp. Last week we received about $1,000 from Internet donations, and that was immediately sent to the camp. All contributions received at our web site until July 10, 2009 will be used for the purpose of purchasing the water. Your help is genuinely needed. Please help. Donation link
