Gretchen Carlson Moved To Tears
As Huckabee Urges America: ‘Quit
Being Ashamed That We Believe In God’

Mediaite, by Noah Rothman

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 12/17/2012 10:33:24 AM

Fox News Host Mike Huckabee moved Fox & Friends host Gretchen Carlson to tears on Monday in a discussion about God and religion in the wake of the mass murder in Connecticut on Friday. After saying that no one “should be surprised” by the attack because schools have become a place free of religion, Huckabee softened his tone. He said that Americans should no longer be ashamed of their belief in a higher power and turn to morality before the tragedy rather than after. (Snip) “I’m not suggesting by any stretch that if we had prayer in

Comments:
I might not always agree with Huckabee, but what he said this morning was absolutely correct. I have been fearful that some of the vile leftists will start complaining about all the references to God after this horrible tragedy.

Yes, we should not be ashamed that we believe in God and I think the war on the Christian religion should stop. We need to affirm that we are a Christian nation and defend that nation by restricting Muslims to visitor status only.

However, this has nothing to do with the recent shootings. The gunman was insane, not disbelieving.

We are reaping what we have sown. We removed God from the conversation and every other endeavor, and there is nothing left to fill the void. Just sayin´

As a practicing Christian, I have not always agreed with the way Huckabee portrays himself in politics. But on this one I definitely agree. Christians need to ´man up´ and tell seculars to back off and stop attacking us for our faith. Jesus stood against evil for our sake. We can do no less now can we?

We are currently seeing the results of secular behaviour that has been a part of our national culture for decades.

Nature abhors a vacuum.

"Dear God, how could you allow such a thing to happen in our school? Signed: Concerned Student."

"Dear Concerned Student: I am not allowed in your school. Signed: God."

If the above offends you, good. That´s what I intended.

I´ll never understand why the majority (God fearing Believers) allow the small % of the population to force us to remove God and any references to God from the public forum. Since the atheists believe in nothing, why should they be offended. They worship nothing and one day they will be rewarded with nothing.

Tell the ACLU to leave, go away, vanish. They do nothing except foment trouble and strife...but perhaps that´s their charge.

Tell the churches and pastors that it is time to read God´s word and follow God´s word.....not just interpret the Bible to fit their own desires and the secular-progressive agenda. Some denominations have wandered away from biblical teachings and have instituted their own teachings. Time to stand up and be counted for something.

I believe that Gretchen´s father was a minister. Funny how we can defend the islamic center being built in the shadow of the Twin Towers but we cannot mention the word God without feeling embarrassed.

The remedy for safety from one another has always been and will always be the living of higher laws. Mankind always looks for the new solutions which usually restate the same old worldy solutions that do not work. When we become a moral society, then these problems will disappear. If we keep in the same direction, the consequences will follow.

Fear of God has prevented many a person from doing terrible harm. Judgement by fellow citizens helps to keep a society civil and encourages positive behavior. There will always be the tug of war between good and evil. Many today no longer know right from wrong. The "do it if it feels good," me generation is in position of power. All the "diversity" and "politically correct" BS has succeeded (as it was intended)in dividing our nation. After all...nobody wants to hurt anyone´s feelings, right? Presently we have an un_American lying, lawless,divisive President. Bad behavior and indecent acts,(ala Bill Clinton)are accepted by society,elected officials who will not or cannot work together for the good of their country, worship of self and celebrity,the devaluing of human life,the unwillingness to punish illegal immigrants yet we don´t encourage assimilation, destroying the American economy, devaluing marriage, marginalizing Christian religion,dissing the founders of this great nation and ignoring our beautiful Constitution. Our children see all this happening and yet are expected to grow up healthy in mind, body and soul. Is it any wonder they are confused about right and wrong and good and evil and bereft of moral covictions? America is indeed in decline as it is being destroyed from within. It´s so clear yet so many are in denial or simply don´t care. Governor Huckabee is correct in his assessment.

How many see the significance of the actions today compared to when Jesus was born. Herod heard that a prophecy was to come true of a King (Jesus) being born. The Wise Men saw a star and followed it. They were summoned to Herod, asked to return when they found the King so Herod could worship Him too. Of course, he wanted to kill him. When they did not return, Herod had all male babies/children two years and under killed. Satan has again attacked our children, who will carry on God´s legacy for the human race.

Obama, in his speech, sought "again" to cause confusion/division amongst the people.

He thinks he is able to do what only God can do!

We need a heart trasfusion of God´s Love/Grace, His ability to draw US together in His Word that defines who we are, what we are capable of with His aid/intervention.

America is in need of God´s mercy, His true Love/Grace that gave His only-begotten Son so that we might one day enjoy His PEACE/LOVE/JOY!

pray for America! We are at a crossroad that will lead to freedom or tyranny!

God save the nation - US!

Yet more symptoms of a PC nation gone awry. Not PC to talk about mental illness, not PC to talk about God and religion.

But, oh, how the misty presidential tears and prayers flowed. When it was too late. How about before the fact, presidential role model? At those evaded prayer breakfasts every year? That we are not a Christian nation, yet, history dispoves your lying lips.

Well, someone brought a gun to the knife fight, president role model misty tears. You provoked a challenge, then hide behind a false Christianity because it was a great photo op.

Sick doesn´t begin to describe...

I have always believed, and have taught both of my children, that faith is believing in something when common sense tells you not to. On Friday, I couldn´t wait to hold my children and tell them how much I love them. They are 19 and supposedly independent but, they both just let me cry and hold them tight. They both knew that their mom needed them so very much that day. When tragedies of this magnitude happen, I HAVE to hang onto my faith. It´s sometimes all I have to get me through without running screaming into the street.

Facebook removes my post about
Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy

Posted By: KarenJ1- 4/17/2014 9:45:44 PM     Post Reply
Your friendly neighborhood columnist has once again run afoul of Facebook’s elusive community standards. Now before you call up the preacher and put me on the church prayer list – let me assure the posting was neither unseemly nor ungentlemanly. This time I was censored for writing something about Rancher Cliven Bundy. I realized I had landed in the Facebook gulag when I tried to post our daily Bible verse. However, I was unable to post anything because Facebook had taken great offense to something I had written. “We removed something your page posted,” Facebook told me in a rather unpleasant message.

Eight Million ´Enrollments,´

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

Rep. Colleen Hanabusa (D-HI) says her constituents are "frustrated and embarrassed" by Hawaii´s failed Obamacare exchange, which cost taxpayers $204 million and signed up only 8,000 people. On Wednesday, the Government Accountability Office (GAO) announced it will launch an investigation into Hawaii´s busted Obamacare program. "This is not a partisan issue, this is an economic issue," said state Sen. Sam Slom. Hawaii Gov. Neil Abercrombie previously predicted "hundreds of thousand of people" would sign up for Obamacare in the President´s home state. On Thursday, President Barack Obama tried to rally Democrats to

Nearly half of American voters think the IRS targeted conservative groups at the request of the White House, and most want Congress to keep investigating the matter. The latest Fox News poll also finds 69 percent don’t feel President Obama has followed through on his vow to “find out exactly what happened on this.” By a 49-41 percent margin, voters believe the Obama administration “intentionally had the IRS target conservative political groups.” That includes 26 percent of Democrats, 52 percent of independents and 71 percent of Republicans. Meanwhile, 67 percent of voters want Congress to keep investigating the IRS until

Reacting to Sunday´s hate crime at two Jewish centers in Kansas City, Sen. Ed Markey (D-Mass.) and Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (D-N.Y.) introduced today a bill to update the government´s 20-year-old report on hate speech in the media. The Hate Crime Reporting Act of 2014 would examine the role of the Internet and other telecommunications in encouraging hate crimes based on gender, religion, ethnicity, or sexual orientation, and would provide recommendations to address such crimes. On Sunday, the eve of the Jewish Passover, a 73-year-old man shot and killed three people at the Jewish Community Center

Report: Obama Considering Bond
Hearings for Detained Illegal Immigrants

Even though the number of illegal immigrants who have been deported through the courts has dropped by 43% since President Barack Obama took office, the Obama administration may enact administrative changes to allow bond hearings for detained illegal immigrants. According to the Los Angeles Times, this could result in "several thousand" illegal immigrants being released from jails and "could slow the pace of deportations" even more. The Times notes that the White House is scrambling to "ease the concerns of Latino groups and other traditional allies that have turned on President Obama in recent weeks" by trying to brand him

It’s pitiful that we’ve reached this point, but Obama’s account of this chat really is more credible than Cantor’s. O’s position on immigration is straightforward: He wants amnesty badly, partly for legacy reasons and partly because he’s understandably keen to legalize a few million future Democratic voters, and he’s hoping the GOP will go along so that he doesn’t have to do something risky like an executive moratorium on deportations. The GOP leadership’s position is anything but straightforward. They’re convinced that they need to pass some sort of immigration bill before 2016 or else Latinos will hand the White House

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes.

Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come
