It's Socialism, I Tell Ya!

Government Controlled Creation Museum

A federal judge has cleared the way for the government's seizure of a creationism theme park in Pensacola owned by a couple convicted of tax fraud.

A ruling by U.S. District Judge Casey Rodgers states that the nine properties that make up Dinosaur Adventure Land as well as two bank accounts associated with the park will be used to satisfy $430,400 owed to the federal government.

Kent Hovind, who founded the park and a ministry, Creation Science Evangelism, is serving 10 years in federal prison for failing to pay the Internal Revenue Service more than $470,000 in employee taxes.

He was found guilty in November 2006 on 58 counts, including failure to pay employee taxes and making threats against investigators. The conviction culminated 17 years of Hovind sparring with the IRS. Saying he was employed by God and his ministers were not subject to payroll taxes, he claimed no income or property.

Rodgers' 16-page order gives the government the green light to divide up the nine properties and begin to sell them until the $430,400 forfeiture amount is satisfied.

Supplication Application

A Note to God

For eons, people have reached out to God with prayers and supplications. Soon they might be able to use their iPhones.

Fair Oaks, Calif., teenager Allen Wright thought up an application for the Apple iPhone called “A Note to God.”

It lets iPhone users send prayers into cyberspace and read the prayers of others. The messages are stored in a database, and users remain anonymous.

Religious scholars welcomed the concept, although one offered a note of caution.

The Rev. James Murphy, vicar general of the Catholic Diocese of Sacramento, agreed the iPhone app “could be a high-tech form of prayer and an authentic way to express our desires to God.”

“There is in each one of us the need to communicate with the divine and to reach the transcendent,” he said.

But he cautioned would-be users to question their motivations.

“Prayer is direct to God, and God should be the primary motive,” he said. “If the motive is to be seen by others, be careful. There’s a sense in which prayer is private.”

He said whatever the form, prayers are heard. “God will hear it,” he said. “You don’t have to have his e-mail address.”

Footprints

Footprints in the Sand
One night I dreamed I was walking along the beach with the Lord.
Many scenes from my life flashed across the sky.
In each scene I noticed footprints in the sand.
Sometimes there were two sets of footprints,
other times there were one set of footprints.

This bothered me because I noticed
that during the low periods of my life,
when I was suffering from
anguish, sorrow or defeat,
I could see only one set of footprints.

So I said to the Lord,
"You promised me Lord,
that if I followed you,
you would walk with me always.
But I have noticed that during
the most trying periods of my life
there have only been one
set of footprints in the sand.
Why, when I needed you most,
you have not been there for me?"

The Lord replied,
"The times when you have
seen only one set of footprints in the sand,
is when I carried you."
Do you recall the anal retentive pest who walked along the beach with Jesus? After he inventoried the footprints left by the two, he pelted Jesus with pesky questions about why there ended up only being one set of footprints.

Awww... Buddha!

Only the Christian God is Real



Have you ever seen somebody working on a fence and takes a hammer and hit their thumb and go "Awww... Buddha!" You ever see them do that? How many hit a gold ball like I hit a golf ball and they go "Ohhh... Mohammed!" Why do they call that name? You know what they do? They go "Jesus Christ!" "Jesus Christ!" Why do they call that name? Because I believe when a person gets hurt or they get angry, they wanna blame who? They want to blame God.

Xena: Prayer Warrior

Prayer Hotline
"So apparently I misunderstood the concept of a prayer hotline, I figured I was calling God directly, but ended up speaking to a lady who referred to herself as my “prayer warrior” (from here on I will refer to her as Xena). I asked if I could speak to God, she said that God communicates through Jesus, so I asked if I could speak to Jesus.. Jesus didn’t come to the phone, but given that Xena said I could talk to God through her, I think she was trying to tell me that she is Jesus. This Christianity thing is confusing."
