HEY!!! IT'S NOT YOUR HOLIDAY!!!

The Christian Saviour Is Born

  Like it or not, it's Christmas time.  This is the time of year we Christians celebrate the birth of our Saviour.  We call it Christmas, because Christ is the center, the focal point if you will, of the season.  To us Christians, our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ is the Messiah, and He came to take away the sins of the world.  To Christians, Christ is everything, and our salvation.  
  Christians have every right to speak of their religion in public, and in public places.  It doesn't seem to deter Muslims from speaking of their faith, simply because it would offend Christians or Atheists, so why are Christians being singled out as the only offensive faith?  It couldn't be the fact that it is the Christians that have it right, or could it?  
  Here it is plain and simple, if you are and Atheist, Muslim, Hindu or even a Jew.  We Christians know that you don't believe in Christ, but we do, and we have every right to do so.  So everyone else needs to back off, and let the Christians celebrate the birth of our Saviour.  If you do not wish to celebrate this Christian Holiday, then don't!  When the 25th of December comes around, if you are say an Atheist, then tell your boss, you don't want the day off, and if you work, then you don't want any holiday pay for that day, as you do not believe in celebrating a day that recognizes a someone you don't believe in.  A better gesture would be to offer to work for a Christian on Christmas so that he might celebrate with his Christian family.  I saw an Atheist billboard that said "There is no god, no devil, so why not just be good for goodness sake."  So, why not work for a Christian this Christmas, and give him the time and a half, for goodness sake?  Maybe if all the Atheists and Muslims and Jews worked for a Christian on Christmas, then Christians may in turn work for a Muslim on Ramadan, or a Jew on a Jewish Holiday, and an Atheist on say, oh I don't know, April 1st maybe.  What a wonderful and peaceful way to get along...
  Not happening right?  I know that, it was just a suggestion.
We could carry this thing even farther.  Say for instance, during those Christmas sales, like Black Friday and Cyber Monday.  Atheists and all other non Christians could shop those sale days and tell the store clerks, "I don't believe in Christmas, so I insist on paying the full price and not the sale price.  Wouldn't that be wonderful for the retail businesses?  I think it would be.  
  So hey, if Christmas isn't your Holiday, don't join in the celebration, trust me, not one Christian will miss your presence.  Basically just shut up, and leave the Christians alone to to exercise their right to free speech, freedom of religion and freedom to assemble, just like you do.
Sincerely,

U.S. SENATE, NOT EVEN 10 RIGHTOUS COULD BE FOUND

The Lord said " I will not destroy it for the sake of ten."
(Genesis 18: 32)

Dateline:  November 15, 2011
The U.S. Senate voted 93-7 to approve a defense authorization bill that includes a provision which not only repeal the military law on sodomy, it also repeals the military ban on sex with animals i.e., bestiality.
  I guess we all saw the repeal of "don't ask, don't tell" coming down the road, and soon to follow, the obvious changes in the laws governing "sodomy".  After all, if a government is going to acknowledge and condone homosexual behavior in the public sector, then the same must follow suit in the military.  Relaxing military regulations to accommodate this military homosexual abomination, apparently comes along with the depravity that has a strangle hold on those who actually make the laws that we are all expected to live by. 
  It troubles me to realize that there are but 7 out of 100 Senators that see a problem with repealing Article 125 of the UCMJ (Uniform Code of Military Justice), in it's entirety.  It troubles me to think that this repeal was either passed by 93 Senators who never actually read Article 125 and voted blindly to repeal it, or worse yet, Article 125 was read aloud, and understood by the entire Senate, and still it was passed by all, but the "Righteous 7". 
  For me, the most disheartening thing is the fact that not one Senator, not even one of the "Righteous 7", spoke out against the repeal of Article 125.  To God, the silence in the Senate Chambers must have deafening.  None, no, not one Senator had the fortitude to stand and speak out, against this abomination with righteous indignation, no, not one!  One hundred of our nation's elected representatives, has taken it upon themselves to vote in favor taking our military to a new moral low.  Yet, there are those who tell me that America is not on the road to perdition.  The world is sinking into a darkness as never before seen on the face of this earth, and it is America's new found immorality that leads way.  Why do I say this?  I say this because, this repeal was voted on in the Senate on November 15, 2011.  Today is December 6, 2011 and I've heard no public outcry.  The Christians of America and the world have slipped into a state of hopeless mediocrity and apathy.  This assault on all that is right, will pass and the professed righteous people will protest with a whimper and not with a roar.  
  The names of the "Righteous 7" are:  Senator Tom Coburn (R-Okla.), Senator Rand Paul (R-KY.), Senator Mike Lee (D-OR.), Senator Jeff Merkley (D-OR.), Senator Ron Wyden (D-OR.), Senator Tom Hardin (D-Iowa), and Senator Bernie Sanders (I-Vermont).  The rest of America's Senators are either spineless or morally corrupt or both.  If your state Senator's name is not among the 7, then you need to do some serious house cleaning this coming election.  If it's not too late.  If you pride yourself on your morals and principles, you need to know that your elected Senators, if not on this list of 7, are not on the same page you are.
  I am embarrassed that Senators Bob Corker and Lamar Alexander of Tennessee are not among the "Righteous 7".  Obviously, taking a stand against immorality is not on either Senator's priority list.  It troubles me to think that somewhere in the recesses of their minds, they do not find the acts of bestiality and same sex sodomy repulsive and repugnant.  Not to mention, against the natural scheme of all creation.  Then again, perhaps neither of them actually read Article 125 of the UCMJ to understand exactly what it was that they were voting to repeal.  Of course, if that's the case, then I find them both despicable and if they are Christian, I find them to be derelict in their faith.
  There is no doubt that homosexuality exists, and if need be, the rest of us have to tolerate it.  However, to repeal regulations that condone and encourage homosexuality as an alternative lifestyle, and remove a ban on bestiality, as if they feel that that disgusting act doesn't occur in the perverted society in which we now live, makes me seriously question the judgement of those to whom we have entrusted our nation.
  The Lord, when speaking with Abraham regarding the destruction of Sodom & Gomorrah began with trying to find 50 inhabitants who were righteous, then 45, then 40, and Abraham was able to negotiate with God down to the number of 10 righteous.  Needless to say, there weren't even ten righteous to be found, and God kept his promise, Sodom & Gomorrah were destroyed.  God always keeps his promises.  If we are to learn from the Biblical historical events, we must make the connection with what happened last November 15, 2011, and it's relationship with the events of Sodom & Gomorrah.  That being, our Senate had the arrogance to hold a vote against God.  Do you understand?  The elected leaders of our nation took a vote to disobey God, and God did not win.  Biblical history bears out the fact that God never loses.  The ramifications of a vote to disobey God's laws of morality is like assuming man has the power to defeat God.  The Lord will not withhold his wrath forever.  The evidence of moral depravity in this nation is proof that the Lord no longer blesses this nation.  He has turned over our future to our free will, and as a nation we shake our fists at heaven defying the One who created everything.  
  It should frighten every citizen, that there weren't even 10 righteous men to be found in America's Senate Chambers. 
God Help Us
Sincerely,
The Watchman
