NEW DECEMBER 2nd CHAIRMAN'S REPORT - The December 2nd edition of my Chairman's Report for the Religious Freedom Coalition contains new information on the Ground Zero promoters' demand for tax dollars and the continued persecution of Christians in the Middle East. NEW: You can now make comments at our new site!
CUTTING SPENDING IS THE ONLY HOPE - My job as chairman of the Religious Freedom Coalition takes me to Capitol Hill almost daily where I am exposed to both heroes and scoundrels, crucial legislation and minutia. I have a simple observation; Our government cannot continue to borrow 40 cents of every dollar it spends without going broke sooner rather than later. The spending is so out of control that no amount of additional taxes can balance the budget. There is only one answer, spending must be cut. Americans agree with me, as long as it is not their benefits that are cut. That has to end, we are all going to have to give up something to save the nation.
HELP IS ON THE WAY - In January dozens of new faces will come to Capitol Hill and most of them are real conservatives. Among them are men such as Col Alan West who I supported for two runs for the House. Two years ago he lost, this time he won. The incumbent he ran against criticized him for his statements on Islam. I applaud Col. West for telling the truth about Islam, a truth he is bringing o Washington, DC. Viewing his one minute clip on Islamic attacks is a must for all Christians. See at Youtube!
IMAM RAUF - A TIME MAGAZINE MAN? - Time Magazine listed Imam Faisal Rauf as one of its candidates for "Person of the Year." In the short bio at Time Magazine it is not mentioned that Rauf is a slum landlord who has had buildings taken over by courts for the protection of the tenets. Time says that all of the opponents of a Ground Zero mosque are from the "right," which of course, is a flat out lie. It appears that truth does not matter much to at Time any longer.

USCIRF: PROTECT IRAQI CHRISTIANS - Just prior to the December 15th meeting of the UN Security Council on Iraq, the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom (USCIRF) urged the U.S. government to address the grave situation facing Iraqi Christians. In a clear appeal the USCIRF requested the UN and the Iraqi government to "provide protection." The USCRIF news release noted that "The smallest Iraqi religious groups-including ChaldoAssyrian, Syriac, and other Christians; Sabean Mandaeans; and Yazidis-face targeted violence, including murders and attacks on their places of worship and religious leaders, intimidation, and forced displacement; they also experience discrimination, marginalization, and neglect. As a result, these ancient communities' very existence in the country is now threatened."
SUICIDE BOMBING IN SWEDEN - Sweden has long swung open its doors to Muslim immigrants and accepted more Iraqi refugees after Saddam Hussein's fall than any other Western nation. A full 5% of Sweden's population is now Muslim. Sweden's reward? Am Islamic suicide bomber in the heart of Stockholm injuring several but fortunately only killing the bomber. The bomber's main complaint seemed to be a Swedish cartoonist putting the head of Mohammad on a dog. Reality: The Muslim population has reached the point that violence can now be used to intimidate as is frequently done in the UK.
