Should Christian Parents Circumcise their Sons?

Should Christian parents circumcise their sons? Certainly, it’s not required for salvation, but is it still a good practice? This Saturday on Up for Debate, Julie Roys will discuss this important issue with Jewish believer and host of “Open Line”, Dr. Michael Rydelnik. Also joining her will be a doctor with the Christian Medical and Dental Associations who supports circumcision – and another Christian leader who does not.

Charlie Gard must never be forgotten

Listen to a spot-on commentary by Cal Thomas. Or read part of it below.

CHARLIE GARD, THE 11-MONTH-OLD BRITISH BABY WITH A RARE GENETIC DISEASE, MUST NEVER BE FORGOTTEN. THAT’S BECAUSE CHARLIE SERVES AS A LESSON FOR WHAT HAPPENS WHEN THE STATE ASSUMES THE POWER TO DECIDE WHO IS FIT TO LIVE AND WHO MUST DIE.

DESPITE A HEROIC BATTLE BY HIS PARENTS, THE NATIONAL HEALTH SERVICE WOULD NOT LET CHARLIE COME TO AMERICA FOR SPECIALIZED TREATMENT. THE STATE DETERMINED HE WASN’T WORTH IT. THE STATE ALSO REFUSED HIS PARENTS’ REQUEST TO TAKE HIM HOME AND LET HIM DIE THERE. ITS “COMPROMISE” WAS TO LET HIM DIE IN HOSPICE.

THIS SHOULD BE A LESSON TO AMERICANS WHO THINK THE STATE SHOULD RUN HEALTH CARE HERE. WOULD YOU LIKE A GOVERNMENT PANEL DETERMINING YOUR WORTH, BASED ON WHETHER YOU ARE COSTING MORE THAN THE TAXES YOU PAY? WOULD YOU BE OK WITH A BOARD – OK, A DEATH PANEL – DETERMINING YOUR FITNESS TO BE TREATED AND LIVE BY PEOPLE WHO HAVE NEVER EXAMINED YOU?

Charles was wrong on little Charlie

The more I read, and watch Charles Krauthammer the more I struggle if he is truly on the right.
In a recent column Charles kind of stood behind the system in the UK which kept the parents of that little boy Charlie Gard from bringing him to America. Little Charlie died yesterday, and from what I heard the British hospital he was in would not even let his mommy, and daddy take him home to die at their home. Talk about evil, and mean.
The issue in Gard case was not that the tax payers of England having to pay for treatment here in America. The parents had raised money to pay for the treatment themselves.
Krauthammer in his column seem to accept the idea that the courts, and doctors of the U.K. knew what was best.
That is not even the issue. The issue is should they decide if little Charlie was brought to America. Don’t parents have the right to decide about healthcare for their children. Unless there is abuse involved.
Krauthammer writes in his column sometimes parents are wrong. I agree, but what about judges, and doctors. They are not perfect either. But this again should not be about who was right, or who knows what is best for the child. This should have been about who has the right to decide.
When you give a government control of healthcare as has happened in England this kind of issue may happen. Are you listening parents of America. This is another reason us in America needs to get Obamacare off the books. Too bad the Democrats in the Senate along with three GOP senators has made this kind of thing a possibility here in America.

Obamacare has become McCain, Murkowski ,Collinsu law

A few days ago I posted something that all of us regardless of party should be praying for Senator John McCain in his battle with cancer. I meant it, and have prayed for him since then.

Today I am more than a little upset at McCain. You see he cast a key vote at 1:00 A.M. which killed a bill that would at least started the process to end Obamacare.

It would appear he at least misled the American people, and the voters of his state. He said in a TV add when he last ran for election that he would help to end Obamacare.

McCain in my humble view can no longer call himself a loyal member of the Grand Old Party. If he ever was one. He was joined by two other members of the GOP in voting against ending Obamacare. They were Lisa Murkowski,and Susan Collins. All of them should answer when they are up for election.
It is time for McCain to retire, and focus on his health.
Folks do not blame the GOP blame three GOP Senators for this failing. It is time to elect folks from the GOP who are truly on the right.It is not enough to be part of the Grand Old Party. We must elect GOP members who are truly from the right.
Thanks John McCain, Lisa Murkowski and Susan Collins.

Cal Thomas says PURISTS WANTed PURITY on healthcare, so they got nothing

THE PROBLEM WITH REFORMING THE TAX CODE IS THE SAME PROBLEM THAT CONFRONTED REPEALING OBAMACARE. PURISTS WANT PURITY AND BY SEEKING IT THEY ARE LIKELY TO GET NOTHING.

THE LATE SENATOR TED KENNEDY UNDERSTOOD THIS. WHEN HIS PARTY WAS IN THE MINORITY KENNEDY WORKED WITH REPUBLICANS TO GET WHAT HE COULD, ALWAYS KEEPING HIS ULTIMATE OBJECTIVE IN MIND.

IT IS NOT COMPROMISING YOUR PRINCIPLES TO COMPROMISE ON LEGISLATION THAT GETS YOU CLOSER TO YOUR GOAL. IF YOUR ATTITUDE IS “ALL OR NOTHING” YOU ARE LIKELY TO GET NOTHING.

McCain’s daughter on her daddy having cancer

I do not always agree with Sen. John McCain. I do know he loves America, and is trying to do the right thing even when some Americans don’t agree with him.

All of us who are people of faith should take his battle with cancer to the Lord.No matter our politics. Read a statement from his daughter.
