It seems Pope Francis needs to brush up on his Tertullian!

It has been reported (in The ChristLast Media, I must note) that the current Pope does not like the phrase "lead us not into temptation...

"Let no freedom be allowed to novelty, because it is not fitting that any addition should be made to antiquity. Let not the clear faith and belief of our forefathers be fouled by any muddy admixture." -- Pope Sixtus III

Richard Viguerie: Mike Huckabee—Wishy-Washy Republican

At least Huckabee is not a babykiller, though he is a baptismalist shaman.

It looks like I will have to go with the man of principle once again...

Following are the main points made by Richard A. Viguerie, author of Conservatives Betrayed: How George W. Bush and Other Big-Government Republicans Hijacked the Conservative Cause (Bonus Books, 2006), in his new paper, “Mike Huckabee—Wishy-Washy Republican”


Mike Huckabee poses as a conservative, but he enthusiastically promotes big government.

In fact, he’s just another wishy-washy Republican—inconsistent in policy because he’s inconsistent in principle.

Gov. Huckabee claims to support “empowering people to make their own decisions”, but he has consistently promoted government meddling in the market economy.

He called no-tax pledges “irresponsible” but then signed one.

In his 10 years in office, Gov. Huckabee had raised the state’s sales tax by 37 percent, motor fuel taxes by 16 percent, and cigarette taxes by 103 percent.

He publicly opposed repealing a tax on groceries and medicine, though he claims that he’s “always philosophically supported” axing the tax.

State spending under Gov. Huckabee rose by 65.3 percent during 1996 to 2004.

Not only did he increase Arkansas’s minimum wage from $5.15 to $6.25 per hour, but he even encouraged the U.S. Congress to do the same thing nationally.

He supported President George W. Bush’s 2003 massive expansion of Medicare by adding a prescription-drug benefit.

He called the No Child Left Behind Act, which increased federal education spending by 48 percent and expanded big-government control of local schools, “the greatest education reform effort of the federal government in my lifetime”.

He wants to fence illegal immigrants out, but to give them cheap tuition while they’re here.

Mike Huckabee calls conservatives “blind purists” but poses as one of us. ]

First of all, the word is SEX, not GENDER. If you are ever tempted to use the word GENDER, don't. The word is SEX! SEX! SEX! SEX! For example: "My sex is male." is correct. "My gender is male." means nothing. Look it up. What kind of sick neo-Puritan nonsense is this? Idiot left-fascists, get your blood-soaked paws off the English language. Hence I am choosing "male" under protest.
