Nearly 60 nations are governed by the Jewish Anti-Defamation League’s hate crime laws. In all of them except America, ADL’s definition of a hate crime is to publicly "express hatred or contempt against members of an identifiable group.”
This perfectly describes Jewish Disney/ABC’s new sitcom Good Christian Bitches. (GCB) Few Christians would deny it holds up our "identifiable group" to contempt. Disney/ABC is headed by Robert Iger, Jewish. GCB’s executive producer is Darren Star, a Jewish homosexual. It is directed by Alan Poul, also a Jewish homosexual and is produced by Aaron Kaplan, Jewish.
I watched the first episode and found this sitcom fulfills all of ADL’s criteria of a hate crime: it is motivated by bias against Christianity. It negatively stereotypes Christians. It expresses intolerance by portraying Bible-belt Christianity derisively. It marginalizes evangelical Christians as a group that is “other" than the mainstream: ridiculous and contemptible for its hypocrisy, crass materialism, vindictiveness and closet
'Good Christian Bitches' Expresses Hate
Here is a brief summary of what ADL should condemn as blatantly “hateful” content.
1. Christian Churches are Full of Gossip, Contention, Shallowness
2. Christians are Immoral
3. Christians are Materialistic
4. Christians Vindictive, Hypocritical, Persecutive
5. Christians Dishonest, Unethical in Business
6. Christians are only Hypocritically Reverent
7. Sinners are more Decent than Christians
Does 'Good Christian Bitches' Qualify as a Hate Crime?
All this provides much more than is necessary in hate law countries to convict Disney/ABC for inciting hatred and contempt for an identifiable group. But such protection is not provided for Christians anywhere under ADL hate laws.Nearly 60 nations are governed by the Jewish Anti-Defamation League’s hate crime... more

At a recent rally against a so-called “personhood” bill currently favored by Oklahoma lawmakers, state senator Judy McIntyre (D) was photographed holding a sign that read: “IF I WANTED THE GOVERNMENT IN MY WOMB, I’D FUCK A SENATOR.”
Explaining to a local reporter that she’d just borrowed the sign from a protester, she remarked: “I was like, I’ve got to have a picture of it.”
“I thought if my 87-year-old mother sees this, I’m going to get hell this weekend, but it was too late,” McIntyre added, according to NewsOK.com.
The protest, held Wednesday at the University of Oklahoma, took issue with a so-called “personhood” bill that would define human life as beginning at conception, effectively banning all abortions.
The Oklahoma State Medical Association is opposed to the bill because it may jeopardize the practice of reproductive medicine and criminalize acts that might harm an embryo, potentially sparking criminal investigations of women who miscarry. The bill was overwhelmingly approved by the state Senate last month, and a vote in the lower chamber is expected soon. It is not clear if the governor will sign it into law.
McIntyre acknowledged that some in Oklahoma, which is overwhelmingly Christian, may find her sign’s language offensive, but she wasn’t much concerned about them.
“I would hope they would have that same passion about how offensive it is for the Republican Party of Oklahoma to ramrod, because they have the votes to do so, bills that are offensive to women and take away the rights of women,” she reportedly said.

ABC Airs "Good Christian Bitches"
There should exist a very powerful watchdog group honestly and fearlessly blowing the whistle when Christianity is defamed by Jewish big media, unafraid to identify its perpetrators as Jewish. The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) does this for the benefit of Jews. Whenever a politician or Christian leader comments unfavorably concerning Jews or Israel, ADL demands an apology and virtually always gets it. The alternative is political or professional ruin.
But ADL is silent regarding the defamation of Christianity. Good Christian Bitches is a television sitcom to air on Jewish Disney/ABC March 4, based on a book of the same title. Due to protest, its title has been shortened to “GCB” in American markets. No one is fooled. The show portrays Christian women as petty, gossipy and vindictive.
Can you imagine ADL’s response if a sitcom were called “Good Jewish Bitches?” But it is predictably silent in this case, too busy decrying campus criticism of Israel, unauthorized use of terms like “holocaust” and “Hitler,” and getting the mildest critic of Israel, Pat Buchanan, sacked from MSNBC.
How can Christians defend themselves from propaganda attacks like GCB?
I suggest not wasting your time contacting ABC. It is owned by Robert Iger, who is Jewish. GCB is produced by Jewish homosexual Darren Star, who also brought us Sex and the City (another work notable for its degradation of women and utter contempt for traditional religious beliefs). These men no doubt expect your protest, laugh at it, and have probably programmed incoming email criticism for mass deletion.
First, get educated. Read my article “Updated: Jews Confirm Big Media is Jewish”. For more documentation, contact the Standard and Poors and Lexis Nexus directories at your library. They confirm the saturation level of Jewish names heading and staffing ABC, CBS, and NBC as well as Viacom and Hollywood studios. A number of books written by Jews are also available in major libraries confirming Hollywood is Jewish. (The article, “Who Runs Hollywood? C’mon!” by Joel Stein in the LA Times is also instructive.)ABC Airs "Good Christian Bitches" There should exist a very powerful... more
Former US National Security Advisor Zbigniew Brzezinksi has warned Washington not to attack Iran and even prevent Israel from launching a military strike against the country.
In 2009 Daily Bail, Brzezinski also suggested that Barack Obama do more than just refuse to support an Israeli strike on Iran's nuclear sites -- the American president must give the order to shoot down Israeli aircraft as they cross Iraqi airspace
DB: How aggressive can Obama be in insisting to the Israelis that a military strike might be in America's worst interest?
Brzezinski: We are not exactly impotent little babies. They have to fly over our airspace in Iraq. Are we just going to sit there and watch?
DB: What if they fly over anyway?
Brzezinski: Well, we have to be serious about denying them that right. That means a denial where you aren't just saying it. If they fly over, you go up and confront them. They have the choice of turning back or not. No one wishes for this but it could be a Liberty in reverse.Former US National Security Advisor Zbigniew Brzezinksi has warned Washington not to... more
What the Bible REALLY says about homosexuality: the four commandments (for Christian gentiles) | Scholars and RoguesHint: not what Christians think it does. Also, how many commandments are there really?
Another example of a bought and paid for US politician using the Jewish experience of WWII to justify war with Iran. It's also interesting to note that some groups were using the Holocaust to justify US entry into the 1991 Gulf War.
Rep. Allen West, a Republican from the state of Florida, warned that Israel could become the site of a "second Holocaust" if the United States does not take further actions to protect the Jewish state against Iran, the WOKV-AM/FM radio station, reported on Monday.
“You’re looking at a second Holocaust … [if Israel doesn't] know they can trust and depend upon the stars and stripes … to provide them support,” West stated.
“There will be no spiritual homeland for Christians to return back to" if that Holocaust does occur, said West in an address to the First Baptist Church in West Palm Beach.Another example of a bought and paid for US politician using the Jewish experience of... more

Using the correct books of the bible for the 21st century man.
there is simply no way to read the Bible I read and not come to the conclusion that it is overwhelmingly supportive of helping the poor, showing mercy to the weak, refraining from judging, treating others as you would treat yourself, calling on the wealthy to give their money to the poor, and all kinds of other liberal, lefty, progressive values. You would have to ignore a great deal of Genesis and Exodus, with their talk of being our brother's keeper and bringing justice to the poor, oppressed slaves in Egypt; you would have to skip over a great many of the verses of Psalms with its poetry about justice and mercy for the poor and the widow; you would have to avoid the books of the Prophets almost entirely since so much of what they are angry about is the Israelite society's mistreatment of poor people and immigrants in their midst. Then there is the New Testament, where between St. Paul, the relatives of Jesus, and the big guy himself, there are so many verses on these subjects that it is virtually impossible to...there is simply no way to read the Bible I read and not come to the conclusion that it... more

Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum on Sunday likened the upcoming U.S. election to World War II.
While the candidate’s comments to a packed First Redeemer Church in Cumming, Georgia were somewhat vague, NBC news noted that he “seemed to compare President [Barack] Obama to [Adolph] Hitler.”
The former Pennsylvania senator told his supporters that this election was like World War II, “where our closest ally, Britain, was being bombed and leveled.”
“And America sat from 1940 when France fell to December of ’41 and did almost nothing,” he explained. “Why? Because we’re a hopeful people. We think, ‘You know it will get better. Yeah, I mean, he’s a nice guy. It won’t be near as bad as what we think. You know, this will be OK. You know, maybe he’s not the best guy.’ After a while, you found out some things about this guy over in Europe and maybe he’s not so good of a guy after all. But you know what? ‘Why do we need to be involved? We’ll just take care of our own problems, just get our families off to work and our kids off to school and we’ll be OK.’”
The candidate added: “Sometimes, sometimes it’s not OK.”
As BuzzFeed pointed out earlier this year, it’s not the first time Santorum has compared his opponents to Adolph Hitler.
During a 2005 speech on the Senate floor, the then-senator blasted Senate Democrats for complaining that Republicans were trying to stop them from filibustering President George W. Bush’s judicial appointees.
“It’s the equivalent of Adolf Hitler in 1942: ‘I’m in Paris. How dare you invade me? How dare you bomb my city? It’s mine,’” he said.
Over the weekend, Santorum also said that Obama’s theology was not “based on the Bible.” He later clarified that he wasn’t questioning if the president was a Christian.

Pertinent exerpts. Go to whole blog to share full complement of arguments.
Rick Santorum attacked President Obama on Saturday for his theology. Although people assumed that Santorum was, like other conservatives, hinting around that Obama is not a Christian but rather a secret Muslim, Santorum denied this allegation. And, likely he meant instead to lump Obama with the 45 million members of mainline Protestant churches in the US who he considers to be pagans. You see, for Santorum, Methodists and Lutherans and Episcopalians may as well be Muslims, since he does not believe that they are Christians.
What is remarkable is that it is Santorum who sounds like a Muslim fundamentalist. And ultimately maybe what he is saying is that Obama isn’t Muslim enough.
Mainline Protestants make up roughly 18 percent of adults in the United States; Seidz-Wald estimates them at 45 million, roughly the number of adult adherents of churches belonging to the National Council of Churches. These denominations for the most part reject a literal approach to the Bible and accept a social gospel, the idea that Christianity mandates good works and care for the poor, needy and vulnerable. The scriptural bases for this belief are quoted here.
As I argued last Sunday, Santorum has his own weird social ideas not grounded in papal encyclicals or the teachings of the Roman Catholic church. (Thanks toJames Downie at WaPo for providing further proof that Santorum is a cafeteria Catholic, holding views that directly contradict a raft of papal encyclicals).
In fact, Santorum by declaring the social Gospel to be un-Christian has not only excommunicated liberal Protestants from Christianity, he has excommunicated the majority of American Catholics, along with the US Council of Bishops and the last few popes, all of whom speak of an “option for the poor.”
what does Santorum think Christianity is about? He thinks it is about moral puritanism.
Thus, he condemns fornication and adultery, but also implicitly revealing clothing. And he is against condoms and birth control pills because in his view they encourage sleeping around (though he doesn’t approve of them for married people either; go figure).
Rick Santorum does not adhere to any recognizable Catholic theology of the social. Rather, he is a Puritan in the Calvinist tradition, staying awake at night afraid that someone somewhere might be committing fornication at the same time that he takes worldly success as a sign of divine favor.
Moreover, Santorum’s approach to religion and social policy is reminiscent of Muslim fundamentalist parties such as al-Nahda in Tunisia.

Former Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee on Friday said that President Barack Obama had turned evangelicals into Catholics by requiring private health insurance plans to cover contraception for women.
Speaking at the Conservative Political Action Conference, Huckabee gave “a great big thank you to President Obama.”
“You have done more than any person in the entire GOP field, any candidate has done to bring this party to unity and energize this party as a result of your attack on religious liberty and the attack on the personhood of every human being in America,” the former Arkansas governor declared.
“The fact that Catholic hospitals– and not just Catholic hospitals, but any hospital, any organization — would be required to provide not just contraceptive services, but Plan B abortion pills and other services that are outside the conscience of people of faith is, in fact, a direct violation of the First Amendment,” Huckabee, who is an ordained Southern Baptist minister, insisted.
“I remember very vividly when John F. Kennedy said that we are all Berliners. Well, in many ways, thanks to President Obama, we are all Catholics now.”
He added: “Growing up a Baptist in the South, I never thought I’d see the day when I would stand in front of several thousand people and say, ‘We’re all Catholic!’ Praise the Lord, pass the offering plate. It’s time to get serious.”
Reports on Friday said the Obama administration would move to accommodate Catholics in a way that would make still contraception available to all women.

President Barack Obama proved on Thursday that conservatives don’t have a monopoly on using religion to advocate for specific public policies.
Speaking to a group of mostly-conservative politicians at the annual National Prayer Breakfast, the president quoted scripture in a effort to get Republicans to support a fairer tax code and caring for the poor.
“When I talk about our financial institutions playing by the same rules as folks on main street, when I talk about making sure insurance companies aren’t discriminating against those who are already sick or making sure that unscrupulous lenders aren’t taking advantage of the most vulnerable among us, I do so because I genuinely believe it will make the economy stronger for everybody,” Obama explained. “But I also do it because I know far too many neighbors in our country have been hurt and treated unfairly over the last few years. And I believe in God’s command to love thy neighbor as thyself.”
“And when I talk about shared responsibility, it’s because I genuinely believe at a time when folks are struggling, at a time when we have enormous deficits, it’s hard for me to ask seniors on a fixed income or young people with student loans or middle class families who can barely pay the bills to shoulder the burden alone. And I think to myself, if I am willing to give something up as someone who has been extraordinarily blessed, give up some of the tax breaks that I enjoy — I actually think that’s going to make economic sense.”
He added: “But for me as a Christian, it also coincides with Jesus’s teaching that for unto whom much is given, much shall be required.”
“Treating others as you want to be treated, requiring much from those who have been given so much, living by the principle that we are our brother’s keeper, caring for the poor and those in need, these values are old and they can be found in many denominations and many faiths and among many believers and among many non-believers. They’re values that have always made this country great when we live up to them, when we just don’t just give lip service to them, and we just don’t talk about them one day a year.”
