  1. For the caller that wants to follow what bills are before Congress she can follow any of them by going to the websites below. I wish every American would pay attention to what’s being decided by our “supposed” representatives. The thing is, even if you follow the bills often they are changed at the last minute and all the “pork” is added at the zero hour— Until we all become sick to death of the way Congress works nothing will change in our favor. I think we need election reform, pork barrel reform, special interest groups writing their own laws reform and so many other things need to change that it becomes disheartening.

    Common Cause used to be a good watchdog group but I haven’t looked into them lately. As in a decade…

  2. Sure, it’s time for a third party. It’s been time for a third party for a long time now. And there are third parties. The thing is, the people who exercise real control in our government would never, ever allow a third party candidate to succeed in a presidential election. Why? The truth is that Democrats and Republicans are one and the same. Liberals and neoconservatives are two sides of the same coin. They are operated by an establishment who would have our nation engaged in perpetual warfare. War: this is US foreign policy. Short of a revolution, this will not change, regardless of the people (ostensibly) in power.

  3. I think we have to separate “America” from “Christianity,” when we understand these terms in their original contexts. Dr. Brown’s guest said, “Democracy and pluralism” is what you get when you embrace Christianity, but this is not the case, because “Democracy” is a pagan ideology and “pluralism” is not compatible with the Kingship of Christ. God only sanctions the Church of Christ. Other religions should not have equal status in an ideal society. But America was founded on such values, on the values of “Democracy and pluralism.” Therefore, we can conclude that the American model ultimately falls short of the highest ideal, which should be a society modeled after the order of Heaven, with a benevolent Christian monarchy in place, subservient to the Church, which dispenses judgement according to the laws of God. This was Christendom before the age of revolution, before the Enlightenment, which separated Church and state and introduced anarchical politics.

  4. Nicholas,

    “…a society modeled after the order of Heaven, with a benevolent Christian monarchy in place, subservient to the Church, which dispenses judgment according to the laws of God. This was Christendom…”

    The world hasn’t experienced this model. We’ll have to wait for the Second Coming when Jesus will return to Earth and set up His millennial kingdom in Jerusalem.

    Revelation 20:4-6 “And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years. But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection. Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years.”

  5. I’ve often heard about atheists who talk about separation of church and state, and after listening to a bit of this program, I looked to see what I could find about sermons from pulpits during the colonial times, and found this:

    “Religious matters are to be separated from the jurisdiction of the state, not because they are beneath the interests of the state, quite the contrary, because they are too high and holy and thus are beyond the competence of the state”

    This was said by Isaac Backus, a preacher who served a church in Massachusetts beginning in 1751.

    We simply need more quality Christians in office who meet together in prayer, discuss important business at hand, pray some more, and can hear what the Lord is saying, and be able to discern where he is leading, and act accordingly, while they maintain everyone’s right to freedom of religion as we have in our constitution, until the Lord comes.
