COLUMBIA, S.C. --Republican Sen. John McCain says he would consider speaking at Bob Jones University, a school he criticized during the 2000 presidential campaign for its ban on interracial dating and anti-Catholic views.
In 2000, McCain assailed the Christian fundamentalist school for its policies and rival George W. Bush for speaking there. During a debate, McCain said that if he were invited, he would have gone to the school and said, "Look, what your doing in this ban on interracial dating is stupid, it's idiotic, and it is incredibly cruel to many people."
Bush defended his speech there but later wrote Cardinal John O'Connor of New York and said he deeply regretted "causing needless offense" by not more clearly "disassociating myself from anti-Catholic sentiments and racial prejudice."...
Are you suggesting that there's some link between BJU and ECT or that BJU is getting soft on Popery? Otherwise I'm not certain as to why you posted the link to your pastor's booklet on ECT. None of the brethren I know personally (particularly Free Presbyterians) who are connected to BJU have any sympathy with Popery or ecumenism.
Remember that John McCain was the Neocons first choice for president, not George Bush.
Remember the kind of president the Neocons want -- a war president, one who will wage war and do it ferociously. Their man is John McCain. Remember William Kristol's endorsement of McCain over Bush back in 2000?
So if you feel like we don't have enough war now and you want more war, support McCain and you will get all the war you could ever want and then some.
Cindy McCain was the first Republican to start wearing the Hillary pin, which is the Phoenix Bird, the notorious symbol of the NWO, the bird that is burned alive and then out of the ashes comes a new Phoenix -- order out of chaos. Those who understand how these people operate realize their signs and symbols should not be ignored, that even though they aren't important to the average person, they are hugely important to the Illuminists.
Mc Cain is a Hypocrite! I shook Ronald Reagan's hand when he visited BJU. George Bush had every right to speak there.
Mc Cain lied to Catholics in Michigan after Bush spoke at BJU. Mc Cain supplied beer at GSP to underage drinkers from Clemson and Furman - His wife's family is part of a beer distributorship, or something.
I'm no real fan of W, but he did nothing wrong. Unfortunately, most conservatives don't have long enough memories to understand that Mc Cain is no friend to conservatives.
"Humpty Dumpty" referred to King Richard III, the hunchbacked monarch. At the Battle of Bosworth Field, he fell from his steed, a horse he had named "Wall" (as dramatically rendered in Shakespeare's play "Richard III": "A horse! A horse! My Kingdom for a Horse!") Richard was surrounded by enemy troops in the battle, and was butchered right there, his body being hacked to pieces. Hence the final part of the rhyme: "All the King's Horses and All the King's men couldn't put Humpty together again!"
The ban is no longer operative anyway: http://archives.cnn.com/2000/US/03/04/bob.jones
But I don't think even a Fundy college should be entrusted with chaperone duties. It's the "hireling" problem that Jesus cites by analogy in John 10:11-13 - if the hireling fails, it doesn't cost him nearly as much as it costs the sheep's owner. Dead sheep or deflowered daughter, it's the same problem.
McCain said that if he were invited, he would have gone to the school and said, "Look, what your doing in this ban on interracial dating is stupid, it's idiotic, and it is incredibly cruel to many people."
No, Senator...Sir. The war in Iraq is stupid, it's idiotic, and it is incredibly cruel to many people.
Spending billions everyday to line the pockets of oil and weapons companies to fatten your own pocket is stupid, it's idiotic, and it is incredibly cruel to many people.
Selling out your contry, trashing the US Constitution while claiming to be a religious conservative is stupid, it's idiotic, and it is incredibly cruel to many people.
Standing behind the lies of 911 and demonizing those who seek the truth is stupid, it's idiotic, and it is incredibly cruel to many people.
