There is an unusual amount of truth and lies out there this morning. There must be an election coming.

John McCain’s mother clears things up rather well I think.

Q: How much support do you think he has among the base of the Republican Party?

Roberta McCain: “I don’t think he has any. I don’t know what the base of the Repub–maybe I don’t know enough about it, but I’ve not seen any help whatsoever.”

True enough, Mrs. McCain. You will not see much support from the Republican base for your son. It is because we would rather not vote for someone who has stabbed us in the back, insulted our faith, persecuted those who protested against abortion and slandered us repeatedly. Besides, your son is ill tempered and ill mannered—though I am sure that you did not raise him that way.

What would one say about people who actually enjoyed such treatment as John McCain has inflicted upon his own party?

As if to add emphasis to Mrs. McCain’s word, The New York Times has endorsed her son. I am sure that this will please the base of the party.

The senator from Arizona is the best choice for the Republican Party’s presidential nomination.

Which brings up a question: If McCain cannot get the support of the Republican base, who is going to vote for the fellow? Liberals? No, they will vote for the Democrat Party. Some conservatives and Christians might even sit out the election—though I do not advise such a thing.

Obama has just praised the Lord Jesus Christ, but not by actually obeying Him.

I am a Christian, and I am a devout Christian. I believe in the redemptive death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. I believe that that faith gives me a path to be cleansed of sin and have eternal life. But most importantly, I believe in the example that Jesus set by feeding the hungry and healing the sick and always prioritizing the least of these over the powerful…Accepting Jesus Christ in my life has been a powerful guide for my conduct and my values and my ideals.

Quite a statement! Well then, has Obama just come out against abortion? Not quite. He has ‘prioritized,’ you see. First things first. He must support his true god before the True God. The following could have been penned for him by Planned Parenthood. Perhaps it was.

I don’t know anybody who is pro-abortion. I think it’s very important to start with that premise. I think people recognize what a wrenching, difficult issue it is. I do think that those who diminish the moral elements of the decision aren’t expressing the full reality of it. But what I believe is that women do not make these decisions casually, and that they struggle with it fervently with their pastors, with their spouses, with their doctors…Our goal should be to make abortion less common, that we should be discouraging unwanted pregnancies, that we should encourage adoption wherever possible.

Obama says that ‘women should pray before making any abortion decisions.’ I suggest this prayer:

Dear Lord, please help me make up my mind whether or not to stick a pair of scissors into my baby’s cranium.

Saying one is a Christian and actually acting like one are not the same thing. The first is easy. The second is not.

And something from one who actually lives the Christian life.

Pope Benedict called on the media on Thursday to practise “info-ethics”, saying it was often used irresponsibly to spread violence and impose “distorted models” of life.

How likely is it that the media will actually do these things? About as likely as this:
