Isn’t it so sad that the media whores — sell-outs to the mega-corpses — can’t seem to recall the first amendment to the U.S. Constitution? Um, the one that says:
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

In case you are interested in seeing just how out of touch our government is with its citizens, please read the following transcript or watch the video. John Pistole, administrator, Transportation Security Administration, speaks flawlessly like a politician, although he's not.
He completely ignores nearly every question Margaret asks!

I was nearly sick to my stomach last night as I watched the PBS News Hour and heard Massachusetts Senator John Kerry go on and on about how we needed to be in Afghanistan. Hm, something doesn't compute! Wasn't he a member of Vietnam Veteran's Against the War? Hm, according to Wikipedia he was even the spokesperson for them.

There is a sick evil cancer in our society, from the highest levels down to the lowest levels. At least one Presidential Administration that believes in torture. And that evil bloodlust for a scapegoat and to extract revenge goes all the way to the lowest levels of the military and civilian law enforcement.
Instead of upholding the Constitution they swore to uphold, they abuse and torture it! THEY ARE EVIL!
Since many of them probably go to church I will add that they are also COMPLETELY EVIL HYPOCRITES who defy God's teachings.

In the Worship God and Bible Study area of NewOldSalt.com I have written often about being careful about Bible worship. So this essay will be about the more general form called Scripture Worship.
What is Scripture Worship? It is when people idolize their scriptures. Idolizing their scriptures is usually the first step to idolizing one's own interpretation of those scriptures, the next step is (too often) to force others to submit to those scriptures, but more so to the specific interpretation of those scriptures.

Sorry about that, but my guess is someone didn't like the fact I said that pay day lenders (and the variations on their ilk) were one of the current favorite toys of the devil.
Not long after that was published, there was an attack on this website. Hundreds upon hundreds of inane comments appeared. That was a burden in more ways than just one. Kind of like being snowed under by bullies holding all the cards which they stole or forced others to sign away under duress, haters of freedom, sharing, love.

Hm. I wonder. Think it has anything to do with another major religion that claims to submit to God? But which seems to promote the opposite? The crushing, oppression, and outright murder of people who disagree with them?

Recently I was informed by someone a "dying Frankenstein and a mad woman" were working hard to spread fear and terror across the countryside.
Then I realized what the person was talking about. Senator Dianne Feinstein's interest in maintaining the black market in marijuana, the destruction of the environment due to grow operations in national forests, the unrighteous (and expensive) imprisonment of people for using a plant product humanity has been using for thousands of years, and the mass murder of Mexicans.

In their ongoing effort to destroy our society and the societies of the world, retailers worked in cahoots with companies specializing in money (banks, credit card companies, pay day lenders, etc…) to tempt people to buy junky stuff they don't need made by near-slaves in foreign lands.

As unemployment handouts dry up for people, they are complaining about a lack of jobs. But don't these people realize that we needed to defy our own Declaration of Independence by make sure the military has more power than civilians? And not just here, but we need to force a militaristic attitude on all countries.

I was watching a video interpretation of Genesis a few days ago and something struck me which hasn't before.
We're told that God commanded Adam and Eve "not to eat from the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil." [Genesis 2:17]
Since, at that point, they had not eaten from it, it only makes sense they had no understanding — no knowledge — of good and evil. And since they did not understand right or wrong — good and evil — how can their eating the fruit be sinful?

I, for one, can not say I'm interested in hearing of people's sexual exploits or interests. I don't ask for that information, but it is sometimes volunteered to me. For the most part, it is not exactly breaking news to me. But I do my best to follow the Golden Rule and treat others with the respect I would like to be treated with. Generally I just change the subject.

Isn't it sad, sick, ironic, and totally predictable* that those who think they are God's gift to humanity and claim to be "holding back" the forces of sin, are in fact the very ones who are promoting evil the most?!
* And even predicted in the Bible.
Here's the easiest passage to share with you. Just read all of Matthew 23, notice how Jesus rages against those who block the entrance to God's kingdom.
