Oklahoma Faith Network: Letter to the Editor of the Oklahoman

Oklahoma Faith Network: Letter to the Editor of the Oklahoman

This is a letter that my father-in-law posted on The Oklahoma Faith Network blog.  As a conservative Christian, I do not see eye-to-eye on a multitude of issues with him.  Contrary to his belief, Christians, more specifically, Christians of the conservative mindset are being discriminated against.

I have had many conversations with members of the so-called "Christian Left," and I find their beliefs to be quite disturbing.  One is their belief on abortion.  Their reference to Numbers 5 verse 13 as their justification on abortion is thinner than the air on top Mount Everest.  They preach about social and economic justice and that Jesus Christ was a Liberal, well I emphatically disagree.  I was taught to value the sanctity of life, and nowhere in my faith does any form of justification of abortion come into play.  I believe that it should be used in only a few extreme situations (rape/incest, health of the women, and quality of life issues).

I fully support any effort to protect members of the Christian faith from undo discrimination from individuals whom do not have a set faith or see religious faith as offensive to them.

Surprisingly enough is that folks like my father-in-law are stone quiet when it comes to the plight of Christians in predominately Muslim countries.

Hole Punch Clouds.

An interesting atmospheric phenomenon occurred here on the Mississippi Gulf Coast yesterday. It is called a hole punch cloud and is caused by aircraft moving through a suspended altocumulus cloud deck composed of supercooled water vapor above the freezing level. As the exhaust from the engines combines with the water vapor that is in the clouds, it causes the cloud to precipitate out as rain, snow, and/or ice depending on what kind of air is in place underneath the cloud. Mostly like it was snow with this on considering that there was a cold front that passed through a day or so ago. Enjoy.

2006 Oklahoma Gubernatorial Race

With the Oklahoma 2006 Governors race almost upon us I have put in my support for the incumbant Governor Brad Henry. As you have read I am a staunch conservative and a die-hard Republican. This might seem out of character for me but I have held on to a belief that if the Democratic Party brought forth a candidate that has similar goals and beliefs as me that I would support him. In his first term, Governor Henry has had incredible support from the Oklahoma Repubilcan party through encourage bipartism efforts to better the The Great State Of Oklahoma. I have kept close eye on his administration and he has done some very promising things for my home state. Has enacted heavy bolstering our education system by the creation of a state lottery, strengthening education through comprehensive school accountability, increased teacher pay, initiative upgrading college campuses, and successfully fought for a statewide vote in which Oklahomans approved a tribal gaming regulation act that will pump millions of dollars into state classrooms while helping revive the beleaguered horserace industry. Thanks to his efforts, Oklahoma’s teachers have received an increase on average of $3,000 during his term in office.

Governor Henry also secured a state vote to fund several vital healthcare initiatives through an increase in the tobacco tax. Approved by voters in November of 2004, the measure included targeted tax cuts, particularly an elimination of the capital gains tax on all Oklahoma property held for five years or more. When Governor Henry took office, Oklahoma was in the midst of a the worst budget problems in its history. With overwhelming bipartism support worked through massive budget cuts, but was able to protect education and health care from those cuts.

Governor Henry enacted legislation and policies that have augmented Oklahoma’s early childhood education, medical malpractice tort reform, placed reforms on public smoking, followed zero-based budgeting, and introduced funding solution to retain the state's only level-one trauma center. A landmark anti-methamphetamine measure advanced by Governor Henry resulted in a dramatic decline of meth lab seizures in the state and has served as a model for the rest of the nation. And finally, Governor Henry is proposing legislation that targets pedophiles that prey on children over the Internet, placing tougher penalties for such offenders. Henry wants to establish a sex offender registry with better registration and community notification, provide for additional funding to hire new corrections officers and boost pay to assist retention, to hire 112 new investigators over two years to investigate child abuse cases.

Governor Henry will have my voted for Governor in 2006

My Great-Grandfather, A War Hero

To everyone,

My great-grandfather, Harold Clayton Clark served in the United States Army in the 9th Infantry, 39th Regiment, 2nd Battalion ECHO Company from March 13 1943 - October 13 1944.
He told me all his war stories them beiing to much to mention but the one that has stuck in my mind all these years is the one involving him and a pair of Colt 1911's .45 Automatic. He had bought a pair of these pistols and wore them in a six-gun rig when he went to fight. His platoon sergeant or officer said that they would have to confiscate his guns. Well in his own words told them " You will have to kill me before you take my guns." This was one of countless stories that he told me about fighting them "godamn Nazis." His obituary will be posted separatley.

Americans United for Separation of Church and State

This country was created to be a place of religious freedom, away from oppression of a tyrant king. With this being said our Constitution was written with a "Bill of Rights" that in its First Amendment states "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof". Yes, this does not establish a state sponsored religion but what is does not do is prohibits the free excercise of religion in public places.

Contrary to mainstream liberal mantra but this country was founded by devoutly religious individuals and the country's laws were built on a foundation of Judeo-Christian beliefs and principles. The members of this organization and ones similar to it are the same people who want God out of our Pledge, off our money, completely out of our schools, and absolutely erradicated from the public square. Also these people want graves of our fallen soldiers and heroes whose tombstones are in the shape of a cross and national monuments that bare religious symbols to be torn down.

The truth behind the separation of church and state "clause" has been so twisted that it has lost its true meaning, that the state will not sponsor a particular religion. For some time there has been an all-out war against people who profess the Christian faith. We have been labeled by the mainstream media as: homophobes, hate-mongers, intolerant, bigoted, and judgemental. When in fact it was a conservative Christian Republican Congress that passed all of the civil rights legislation during the 1960's when every "Jim Crow" Democrat voted against it.

This organization and ones like it are setting a dangerous precedent when one day God forbid when being just a Christian would be against the law and people of this faith would be herded off to camps like Stalin's USSR and Hiltler's Riech. I find it morally irreprehensible that a portion of our society are so easily offended by the simple utterance of the name of God. It is a violation of the Great Commision that Jesus Christ said "All authority in Heaven and on Earth has been given to Me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, The Son, and of the Holy Spirit and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you." Matthew 28:18-20.

In closing my father in-law is a member of this organization. I do not hold this against him for have the most upmost respect for him as a father, husband, and man of God.

This brings to my recollection something the Jesus Christ said "He who denies my name among men, I will deny their name to my Father".

Freedom Of Speech

What is freedom of speech? According to the United States Constitution "Bill of Rights" Amendment One, freedom of speech is defined as "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."

The freedom of speech is one the greatest freedoms that we have. But is todays culture this freedom has been abused. For example: liberals and their ilk completly support freedom of speech but their own freedom of speech. In there minds anyone that has a completly differing viewpoint is censored. Us as conservatives have had our freedom of speech infringed by the left-leaning liberal Democratics believe that we do not have the right to speak our minds.

These folks and the beliefs are borderline socialist with their desire to shut us up, to send us away to some dark cell so that voice can not be heard. Beware because they will not stop until they get their way and sending every person that does not believe the way that they do away so that they can not be heard.
