The very first Christmas card that I received this December was from a Sikh friend in Thailand. He and his family fondly wished my family and me a Merry Christmas and a joyous New Year. As the cards continued to come in from all over the world, I realized that some were from Buddhists, some from Hindus, and yes, there were even similar greetings from Muslims. Growing up in India I remember often being greeted at Christmas with the words, “Bada din mubarrak,” which literally means “Greetings on the Big Day.” We would accordingly greet them in response and welcome them to our house for some sweets and delicacies.

Where is the Life we have lost in living?Where is the wisdom we have lost in knowledge?Where is the knowledge we have lost in information? The cycles of Heaven in twenty centuries Bring us farther from God and nearer to the Dust.

Unbridled mullahocracy

"The ayatollahs and mullahs clearly don't like U.S. carrots, cooked or uncooked. In fact, Iran's supreme leader, Grand Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, from his religious retreat in the holy city of Qum, said "Death to America" should now be read or spoken before any chapter of the Koran."

I dare someone to say that "all religions lead to god!"

Bill Clinton Supports Rescuing Schiavo

While New York Sen. Hillary Clinton has virtually gone into hiding - as have many other Democrats - regarding whether or not Terri Schiavo should be starved to death, ex-President Bill Clinton was reportedly "egging on" one of Hillary's colleagues to support federal intervention to rescue Schiavo.

As of this writing, the killing of Terri Schiavo has not been consummated, but it could be at any moment. There is no "letting her die" going on here, any more than we would be "letting" an infant die if we left him in his playpen and deprived him of food and water for 12 days.

The story used to be that the Left, broadly defined, was the party of love, compassion, softness — the large-hearted party. We used to say, "Bleeding hearts!" And the Right was cold, materialistic, callous — Hobbesian. What happened?

Eleanor Smith (who was quoted by Reuters, which was quoted by the Wall Street Journal) is a self-described liberal, lesbian, and agnostic — and yet she says, "At this point I would rather have a right-wing Christian decide my fate than an ACLU member."

"I think much of the Left's support of the so-called husband stems from the fact that they get a chance to stick it to George W. Bush and his religious supporters. They couldn't beat him at the ballot box, so Terri Schiavo's death becomes a sort of victory for them. Pretty hard to believe, but . . ."

Our culture of Death continues:

Mother arrested for attempting to intervene in her 14-year old's decision to have abortion

By the way, why did it take seven years for Mr. Shiavo to tell anyone that she didn't want to live as a vegetable (which she's not-so says multiple doctors)?

The Emporer's Not wearing any clothes! The Judicial system has revealed it's contempt for any branch of government but it's own (Denovo review disregarded!)

I wonder how Christopher Reeve would have felt about this. What if he wasn't able to communicate HIS will to live? Certainly Terri couldn't have anticipated this type of circumstance: semi-conscious, with feelings, emotions, etc...

Mostly, it's the public killing her to make a point about their opinion on a subject that isn't even apllicable to Terri. Sure, none of us would want to live indefinately in a coma with machines hanging off of us, but this is clearly not the case here. People just want it to be so they can advance their agenda. A lesson learned from the liberal play book.

I would like sarcstically thank the peace-niks and all those who believe that "all roads lead to god" for making nuclear terrorism possible. All Iranian scientists faithful to Allah can now do their duty to man-kind and Allah by spreading the gospel of nuclear bomb making to there brothers around the world everywhere. Good job guys! Your tolerance and "open-mindedness" has allowed this great service to become a reality, and now we can watch proliferation of death happen all around the world on a much grander scale than just killing babies and helpless women who need rehab as well as a feeding tube.

This is AMAZING!!! A Purpose Driven Life, by Rick Warren has re-surged back to the top. It's made it back to number 2 on Amazon's best seller list. This apparently because of the phenominal success hostage Ashley Smith had getting Brian Nichols (Atlanta murderer) to surrender.
Apparently, during her captivity, Miss Smith read to him from the Bible and A Purpose Driven Life which was, at least partially, responsible for his surrender. What a life this book has taken on!

Eric Rhodes' Blog proudly welcomes Mind & Media. They have graciously accepted me into their fold. I'm sure that we will be a good partnership!

Trump: I'd Fire Dan Rather

Megabucks real estate mogul Donald Trump, whose patented phrase,"You're Fired," has become the centerpiece of NBC's hit show "The Apprentice," said Sunday that he'd fire CBS News anchorman Dan Rather if he had the chance.

"I would have fired him a long time ago," Trump told "Fox News Sunday." "I would have said, 'Dan, you're fired.'"

Ex-Korn Guitarist Baptized in Jordan River

KIBBUTZ KINNERET, Israel (AP) - Former Korn guitarist Brian "Head" Welch was baptized Saturday in the Jordan River, just weeks after quitting his band, drug habits and rock-and-roll lifestyle for religion.

Welch, a founding member of the multi-platinum band, and about 20 other white-robed Christian pilgrims from a Bakersfield, Calif., church were immersed by their pastor, Ron Vietti.

Welch said the ritual baptism had washed away his anger. "You know when you get angry and it builds up? I felt like hurting someone before, now I feel like hugging people," he said.
