 Re:

There is nothing in the Constitution about "fairness of speech"... but I do recall seeing something about "freedom of speech". But our government pretty much ignores the Constitution anymore. Just read the Patriot Act sometime.

 Re:

There is a name for the "fairness doctrine." It is known as an attibute of "socialism" and/or "communism." It is similar to the doctrine in communist nations that is used to limit free speech. There are some "free" nations that limit Christian voices in the media (internet, radio, television, etc...) simply because of a liberal government-mandated "fairness" to the pagans.

Pray, saints!

 Re:

So if the atheists get equal time on websites as well as the churches, will Christians demand equal rights to be heard where these people voice their opinions? I can not imagine Christians even wanting to tangle with these sorts! We are too gentle! In other words I cannot imagine Jesus walking about looking to find a liberal to fight with. And if he wouldn't the Holy Spirit would not inspire Believers to do likewise. Come to think about it 'debate' is listed in the catalog of sins, right along with fornication, covetousness, etc. (Romans 1:29-31). This is what these 'discussions' would degenerate to, I am afraid, because ungodly people are angry people who are fighting God and any person who appears to be the personification of the issue they are fighting will become a target for their hatred and venom and outrage.

I have come across some weblogs written by anti-Christians, berating our philosophy, lifestyles and it just about makes you puke! It is so vile. I have never in reading any Christian site seen such vituperation spewed as generated by those people!

Now, y'all have a blessed day! THIS is the day the LORD has made so we WILL rejoice and be glad in it! And don't forget to pray for the Revival conference beginning today in Atlanta!

Yea, exactly we won't be. I have to wonder though if God is giving our country over to a reprobate mind because as the scripture says they do not want to retain God in thier knowledge. The word has been heard and rejected.

Romans 1:28
And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;

And have you ever noticed that the ones who do society, culture, the church the most damage are those whose heritage, roots are in Christianity? Think about it! Many of these people have been in the church (and I use this term broadly), may have made a profession of faith at some point or just been exposed to Jesus' teachings.

Want some names? How about: Adolph Hitler, Karl Marx, Elvis Presley, Faye Wattleton, Hugh Hefner and I am sure there are more, these just come to my mind.
