Every Knee Shall Bend…

By: T F Stern
T F Stern’s Rantings

…and every tongue confess… that Jesus is the Christ; the admonition to the children of men isn’t, “Every knee shall buckle when confronted by the adversary”.

(AP image supplied with the following news article)

There’s a news item out of Starke, Florida explaining a compromise has been reached in order to preserve a display of the Ten Commandments without having to go through an expensive legal tussle with American Atheists.

“Bradford County has reached a deal to allow American Atheists to install a 1,500-pound granite bench near the county courthouse. The bench will feature quotes from Thomas Jefferson and Madalyn Murray O’Hair.

It will also include a list of punishments for violating the Ten Commandments, including stoning, and will include a quote from the Treaty of Tripoli, a late 18th century peace agreement that declares the U.S. was not founded on Christianity, The Gainesville Sun reported.”

Folks who have their Bible handy will recognize the line which acts as title to this article, an abstract from Isaiah 45:23 or a similar reference in Romans 14:11; but I prefer the account as found in the Book of Mormon.

“Yea, every knee shall bow, and every tongue confess before him. Yea, even at the last day, when all men shall stand to be judged of him, then shall they confess that he is God; then shall they confess, who live without God in the world, that the judgment of an everlasting punishment is just upon them; and they shall quake, and tremble, and shrink beneath the glance of his all-searching eye.” Mosiah 27:31

The not so famous Treaty of Tripoli quote which will be engraved in solid granite on the Atheist bench has made yet another appearance. Atheists love to throw down their “go to” quote from the Treaty of Tripoli, the one which alleges the U.S. was not founded on Christianity. While it is true, then President John Adams did sign the Treaty of Tripoli; to be sure, it never included anything that could remotely be construed to imply that the United States of America was anything other than a Christian nation.

I wrote about this a couple of years ago, We Started Out a Christian Nation; where a host of detractors pointed to the Treaty of Tripoli as proof America isn’t now, nor ever was based on Christian principles.

The Avalon Project at Yale University exposed this particular attempt to re-write history in favor of an anti-Christian agenda, often referred to as the Barlow translation.

“As even a casual examination of the annotated translation of 1930 shows, the Barlow translation is at best a poor attempt at a paraphrase or summary of the sense of the Arabic; and even as such its defects throughout are obvious and glaring. Most extraordinary (and wholly unexplained) is the fact that Article 11 of the Barlow translation, with its famous phrase, “the government of the United States of America is not in any sense founded on the Christian Religion,” does not exist at all. There is no Article 11. The Arabic text which is between Articles 10 and 12 is in form a letter, crude and flamboyant and withal quite unimportant, from the Dey of Algiers to the Pasha of Tripoli. How that script came to be written and to be regarded, as in the Barlow translation, as Article 11 of the treaty as there written, is a mystery and seemingly must remain so. Nothing in the diplomatic correspondence of the time throws any light whatever on the point.” (emphasis added)

It’s often joked the reason so many lawyers are trying to have the Ten Commandments removed from court house settings; it creates a hostile work environment for folks routinely at odds with the intent of such words, folks like lawyers and judges who would prefer “words of advice” rather than Ten Commandments.

Commandments are so, what’s the word; binding, compelling, undeniable, obligatory, necessary…; well, you get the idea.

Knees buckling under pressure in Bradford, Florida; not exactly the same as “Every knee shall bend”, now is it? I can’t wait to read other quotes which will be placed in the public square on the Atheist bench, specifically the ones from Madalyn Murray O’Hair; words worthy of sharing we can be sure…

If you have to lie or distort information in order to advance your agenda perhaps your agenda is flawed. Goodness, I hadn’t intended to shoot down the entire Obama administration with one shot; attribute that to pure luck.


The Council Has Spoken!! This Week’s Watcher’s Council Results – 06/07/13

The Watcher’s Council

Alea iacta est… the Council has spoken, the votes are in and we have the results for this week’s Watcher’s Council match-up.

Some folk wisdom my father of blessed memory repeated to me early and often from a very young age: ‘Figures lie, and liars figure.’

This week’s winner, “The Myth Of The Hispanic Tidal Wave,” by Joshuapundit was actually written a few weeks after the 2012 election and was inspired by one of the myriad of commentators writing about how the tidal wave of Hispanic votes that re-elected Barack Hussein Obama spelled doom for the Republicans unless they abandoned conservatism and out-pandered Democrats for this vital new constituency. The way the article was written got my truth-meter (something for which my parents had a far earthier barnyard-level term for) tingling, I did a bit of research and my father’s wisdom once more redeemed itself.

In view of the Gang of Eight’s recent antics with their amnesty bill and a related piece that came out last week by Byron York, I decided it was more than relevant to unearth this one from the archives. Here’s a slice:

The latest rage among Republicans and Democrats alike is the Hispanic vote.

The Democrats smirk that the muscle of the Latino vote is going to make them a permanent majority and make the Republicans extinct, while GOP establishment types (and even some self described conservatives) pontificate that the election of 2012 is a message for the Republican to embrace amnesty for illegal aliens, to try to outdo the Democrats in gimmees and in raising taxes to pay for it and to drop any vestige of social conservatism.

One of these articles (in American Enterprise, no less) by Charles Murray points out that in his view the argument that Latinos naturally skew towards social conservatism is bogus..and as proof he offers another non-white group that went primarily for Barack Obama..Asians, who are another minority that ‘should have voted as natural social conservatives’ :

My thesis is that the GOP is in trouble across the electoral board because it has become identified in the public mind with social conservatism. Large numbers of Independents and Democrats who are naturally attracted to arguments of fiscal discipline, less government interference in daily life, greater personal responsibility, and free enterprise refuse to vote for Republicans because they are so put off by the positions and rhetoric of social conservatives, whom they take to represent the spirit of the “real” GOP.

This isn’t much of a thesis, frankly. First, Asians are an extremely diverse group..everyone from Chinese, Vietnamese and Koreans to Filipinos, Pakistanis and Indians ( a fairly diverse group in themselves). The figures cited make no mention of which Asians we’re talking about. I would bet my dollar to your dime that Koreans voted substantially different in the last election than Pakistanis, for example.

Since they’re not broken down but lumped together as a group, the best figure available is that Americans of Asian descent constitute 3% of the electorate, about 6, 450,000 voters.

So, what percentage of the Asian electorate actually voted? I couldn’t find those figures but let’s be very generous and say it was a 40% turnout. This would have been huge given that this was a very low turnout election. 73% of the Asians that actually voted went went for Obama, so we’re talking about 1,883,400 votes mainly concentrated in Blue states like California, New York, New Jersey and Michigan ( if we’re talking Pakistanis and Asian Muslims). That’s a grand total of 28% of the available Asian electorate if we’re talking a 40% turnout. It’s probably a lot less, especially when you break it down by individual groups.Barack Obama probably did better among Muslims than any other demographic except blacks.In any event, that means that 72% of the Asian electorate is either Republican or available.

Now, that got me thinking along the same lines when it comes to the Hispanic vote.

Hispanics, for example, are 9.07 of the current electorate ( 23.7 million voters). Of those, only 12 million or so of that 23.7 million voted and they went for Barack Obama by 67.5%, a whopping 8 million of the 12 million whom voted ..or just about one third of the entire Hispanic votes available.

That means two thirds of the current Hispanic vote is either Republican or up for grabs.

That’s what all the verbiage and punditry is about….a grand total of less than 3.5% of the entire electorate, much of it already living in Blue States like California, New York and New Jersey. And that doesn’t even account for voter fraud in places like California where there are no voter ID laws.

There’s a lot more on this and what it means at the link.

In our non-Council category, the winner was Ayaan Hirss Ali with The Problem of Muslim Leadership submitted by Joshuapundit. In it, the renowned author and ex-Muslim looks at Islam-inspired terrorism and puts her finger on the real problem. Do read it.

Okay, here are this week’s full results. Only The Right Planet was unable to vote this week, but was not subject to the usual 2/3 vote penalty:
