The New Monsterous Regiment of Women.

I've noticed that there has been a good bit of controversy within the circle of Homeschool bloggers recently over whether to accept or reject McCain's new VP Sarah Palin. I fail to see her appeal to Evangelicals.

I think that the Conservatives need to be looking to fellow Conservatives from Alaska and seeking their opinion on Palin, someone I would recommend reading is Mr. Jerad from AK, who has done several terrific blog posts on Palin (I agree 100 percent with him), Jerad has campaigned AGAINST Palin in the past and is helping in the fight against her now.

I would also recommend this sermon (which I'm sure all of you have heard, but just in case you haven't) by Dr. Morecraft, my new favorite out of all of his great lectures.

Something else I really recommend is this video by Dr. Voddie Baucham in which he debates Margaret Feinberg.
One of the highlights in this video is when he rebukes her for "Playing fast and loose with the Text", good stuff ;).

Again, I'm sure you've read this but I have to put it out here, this is one of the most powerful articles that I've read, by Mr. Geoffrey Botkin entitled "The Miraculous Sanctification of the Republican Party".

I find it disgusting the way most male conservatives are acting about this, I've talked to grown men who would not let Palin preach at their church, yet are so ready to declare her their new Über Führer. To throw a woman onto the Front lines of what is a Spiritual War, "For we fight not against flesh and blood", this is not manliness but effeminacy.

To me, it conjures up visions of a mob chanting "Jump, Jump!" to a confused woman, perched on the edge of a precipice.

A couple of weeks ago I was talking to a fellow homeschooler from scouts about politics, we started off by chatting about my meeting former Speaker of the House, Newt Gingrich, he said "WOW I didn't know he was in town, by the way ain't it great that Palin got the VP?", this same guy used to hate McCain, but since he is now the Republican nominee he thinks that McCain can do no wrong.

So I said "No, are you kidding? Not only is she not as conservative as she is being portrayed, but she's a WOMAN" so he replied "Well maybe it's not the best thing, but it's better than Obama".

But is it better than Obama?

Republicans were soooo worried about Ron Paul splitting the ticket even though they agreed with most of what he said, so most of them went for Huckabee or Romney, Ive already done a post on Huckabee, so if you will allow me to go on a short rant....

I COULD NOT vote in any circumstance for Mitt Romney, not only because of his extremely liberal stance on a lot of things, but because he was a member of a cult that denies the Deity of CHRIST, a cult of wolves in sheep's clothing, a cult that is nothing more than an 19th century Branch Davidian.

Romney is the one who split the vote! Because of a lot of Christians who were too pessimistic, scared and weak to vote for the right person, the Biblical candidate is now out and we (supposedly) have to choose between evil and tyranny.

Maybe if Obama did become president the Christians would realize the cost of their stupidity, then we might band together in 2012 and win a victory for America, Christendom and even the World. A new revolution, a revolution without revising our government, but merely seeking to uphold the revolutionary idea that it is "Self evident that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness".

That's the "change" I'm talking about.

It looks like it won't be long before the government starts exercising it's might over us, and the Christians are the ones who brought it on, by settling with the lesser of the evils, and because they did not band together with the Joshuas and Calebs who were ready to posses the land the way the LORD wanted them to.

God Bless,

Great post! Yeah, 2012 could be an interesting year for America.

Palin make me ill; maybe it's her hair.

BTW, I had to laugh over your message in the comments window. Funny!

I love the new song in your playlist; brings out the Celt in me.

Dia duit!

2012 could either be a really good year or a really bad one.

I think if McCain-Palin get the presidency this year, people will be so fed up with the "Republicans" they might go for someone more Socialistic than Obama in 2012, wheras if Obama gets to play president for a few years, the opposite might happen next election.

I've had people leave all three types of comments, so I figured I'd give any more arrogant Sasanachs fair warning.

"I love the new song in your playlist; brings out the Celt in me."

Thanks, I found it on playlist last night, I figured it was time to retire LOTM to second place.

Beannacht Dé leat!

Great post!

I am honored to say that Clan Boyd was blessed to hear Pastor Morecraft's sermon in person! It was the closest I've come to grabbing the old shotgun afterward. I just know that's bound to happen sooner or later.

I noticed you also added Oro Se Do...good song! Though I don't much care for the Blackhawk Down version of Minstrel Boy....to much "south-of-the-border".

Mike said...

Thanks Stephen!

Wish I had been there with ya! I noticed Mr. Boyd's comment on sermon audio.
Next time you get a hankerin' to grab your shotgun let me know, I'll get mine too "Even in a crowd of one thousand, two armed men make a majority".

Oro se do is one of my favorite songs. To tell the truth I don't like that version of The Minstrel Boy I have out there all that much, but I wanted to have the song on my blog and all the other versions on playlist stunk, I'm trying to figure out how to upload Mr. Charlie Zahm's rendition, which surpasses all.


Stephen Boyd said...

Absolutely surpasses!

I assume you've heard his rendition of Mingulay?

BTW, NEVER (ever,ever,ever,ever....) listen to ANYTHING by a group called Dropkick Murphy! They might as well be called Braindead Murphy! I found a version of (supposedly) MB by them I couldn't hear it my computer screen was vibrating so hard.

Mike said...

Yes, but unfortunatly I don't own his cd with Mingulay, but I've heard it live a few times, excellent song!

I heard "Johnny I hardly knew ye" by Dropkicked Murphys awhile back, my ears rang for about a week after that.
Although, they do an alright version of the Green Fields of France, it's the only one they don't belt.

God Bless,
