Will Pope Francis be Hitllary’s Pope?
By Mack Rights
It was recently reported that the percentage of people in the United States that claim to be Christian has dropped in the last several years. The liberals proudly claim that this is because they are beating the Church into submission with their “scientific-based” reason, but it might have more to do with the fact that churches are willingly giving up. We all see it in the Congress. When was the last time the Republican Party, which presently controls both houses, actually did something they were elected to do rather than something that would save Obama’s face? But the churches are giving up as well.
The Presbyterians and the Episcopalians both make radical homosexuals feel more comfortable than Bible-reading Christians. The Evangelical Lutherans, the Unitarians and all the other liberal feel-good churches are just as bad. It’s no longer about getting ready to battle against sin and temptation between now and next Sunday. It’s more about feeling OK with your sins and trying to interpret the Bible as telling you that sin is OK. I’m not pretending I’m not a sinner- we all are- but going to church is about learning to see the sin and learning to see the temptation. Without that teaching, the temptation comes and gives you a sponge bath in a hot tub of sin, and you have no idea that Satan’s licking his chops as your soul is slowly boiled to a crisp. And only in hell does something boil to a crisp.
Nonetheless, this is nothing new. Tempters and despots have been trying and even succeeding at infiltrating the church since the first day there ever was a church. Hitler was famous for trying to get the Pope to be his puppet because he knew that the Pope was in charge of interpreting the Bible for millions upon millions of people. He thought that if he could inject a little National Socialism into the church, he’d have an even easier time gaining loyalty to his army of darkness.
The Communists have infiltrated as well. A famous cold-war defector recently wrote about how it was the KGB that actually created Liberation Theology in Latin America. This is the theology that has infected many churches in America, including Obama’s Reverend Wright’s church in Chicago. It’s just an interpretation of Jesus as a communist who would take over the government, take from those who have, give to those who don’t and pocket a vig for himself. Continue reading

This article sprang from a discussion I had on the conservative social network, “Freedom Torch”. I felt it necessary to expound on the very idea of conservatism and the nature of the nation our Founders established for us!
So many of the Founders thought it wise to emphasize that the birth of the United States of America would not have been possible, apart from the aid of “Divine Providence”. It seemed almost like a mania.
Even the Founders, known for holding less than orthodox views of Christian faith, acknowledged the role Providence played in establishing our Republic. In an address to the Constitutional Convention Ben Franklin asked this poignant question:
“In the beginning of the contest with Britain, when we were sensible of danger, we had daily prayers in this room for Divine protection. Our prayers, Sir, were heard, and they were graciously answered… do we imagine we no longer need His assistance?”
At the same convention of 1787, James Madison, the “Father of the Constitution”, offered Isaiah 33:22 as the inspiration for our redoubted triune system of government.
“For the LORD is our judge,” the (Judicial branch)
“The LORD is our lawgiver,” the (Legislative branch)
“The LORD is our king; the (Executive branch) He will save us.”
The nature of my conversation on Freedom Torch highlighted what comes across as two camps within the conservative community. We find the secular camp: uninterested in social issues like abortion or defense of marriage. This is most often the camp Libertarians identify with, as so much (not all) of their political philosophy is derived from Ayn Rand’s Objectivism; Rand herself was an atheist. I have met a few religious Libertarians.
Not limited to Libertarians, there are also religious Republican conservatives who also argue against the prominence given to social issues. Conservatives able to compartmentalize their faith and support a candidate they think can win, even if they may not agree with that persons stance on spiritual matters like the right to life.
These are the folks that are most often likely to see the “religious right” as a detriment to the conservative movement, insisting one can’t lure Independents to our side with “all that abortion and gay marriage talk”.
Emphasizing fiscal conservatism and small government, this group vehemently opposes liberal socialistic ideas. This conservative type cares more about preserving our nation’s material standing, than conserving our entire way of life.
These conservatives speak of values and their importance, without caring from whence those values were derived. After all, the Founders fought for religious freedom, did they not? They did indeed!
However, it does not follow that because we have religious freedom in America, all faiths are equally valid, or are equally useful in determining American morality or political thought.
Again, James Madison:
“We have staked the whole future of American civilization, not upon the power of government, far from it. We’ve staked the future of all our political institutions upon our capacity…to sustain ourselves according to the Ten Commandments of God.” – 1778 to the General Assembly of the State of Virginia
If you believe any old values will do, secular values based on naturalism or values culled from the various world religions, you really don’t grasp the soul of American republicanism. You really aren’t for conserving America in every intrinsic way!
Our nation was not founded upon the sentiments of some generic ecumenical god, but rather the immutable God of the Holy Bible.
The second camp in modern conservatism is the one which recognizes this fact and has apprehended the simple idea that apart from the values that inspired the Constitution, it is unlikely any politician or citizen will make the right choices on any of the issues conservatives hold dear with any consistency.
In a letter to one John Murray, Jr. dated October 12, 1816, John Jay, the first Chief Justice of the United States Supreme Court upheld this notion when he wrote:
“ Providence has given to our people the choice of their rulers, and it is the duty, as well as the privilege and interest of our Christian nation to select and prefer Christians for their rulers.”
That type of thinking did not occur in a vacuum! The founders of this nation had no intention of constructing a secular nation based on natural law or any nebulous concept of a God ever at the mercy of mercurial human fashion. The precepts acting as our philosophical corner stone had to be set and unchanging.
In 1777, the Continental Congress called for a day of Thanksgiving for the victory won at the battle of Saratoga:
“Forasmuch as it is the indispensable duty of all men to adore the superintending providence of Almighty God; to acknowledge with gratitude their obligation to him for benefits received… to offer humble and earnest supplication that it may please God, through the merits of Jesus Christ, mercifully to forgive and blot our sins out of remembrance… and to prosper the means of religion for the promotion and enlargement of that kingdom which consisteth ‘in righteousness, peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost.'”
This spirit of humility towards and reverence for the God of the Holy Bible carried on after the war as illustrated by George Washington, in a statement to all the states’ Governors in 1783:
“I now make it my earnest prayer, that God would have you, and the State over which you preside, in his holy protection . . . that he would most graciously be pleased to dispose us all to do justice, to love mercy, and to demean ourselves with that charity, humility, and pacific temper of mind, which were the characteristics of the Divine Author of our blessed religion, and without an humble imitation of whose example in these things, we can never hope to be a happy nation.”
Secularists on both sides of the political aisle advance the specious notion that Holy Scripture is subjective and therefore inherently unreliable in politics. Like the Holy Bible, the Constitution is open to interpretation and the authors true intent difficult to know with objectivity. This was not the thinking of America before socialism began spreading in our country.
In “Holy Trinity Church v. U.S.” 1892, the Supreme Court stated:
“Our laws and our institutions must necessarily be based upon and embody the teachings of the Redeemer of mankind. It is impossible that it should be otherwise. In this sense and to this extent, our civilizations and our institutions are emphatically Christian.”
This is not “God” in a generic pan-religious sense! It is not the Buddha, Vishnu or Great Spirit! Nor is it Allah of Islam or any Winfreyian Celestine prophet, but rather the “Redeemer of mankind”!
Try as the secular left and right may to expunge them from public consciousness, the works of the overwhelming majority of our Founding Fathers, as well as the American public record are veritably toxic with statements like we find in the Holy Trinity Church v. U.S. ruling. This is so because our nation once believed truths like this:
Hearken now unto my voice, I will give thee counsel, and God shall be with thee: Be thou for the people to God-ward, that thou mayest bring the causes unto God: And thou shalt teach them ordinances and laws, and shalt shew them the way wherein they must walk, and the work that they must do. Moreover thou shalt provide out of all the people able men, such as fear God, men of truth, hating covetousness; and place such over them, to be rulers of thousands, and rulers of hundreds, rulers of fifties, and rulers of tens: Exodus 18:19-21
I believe the majority of Americans still believe. Nonetheless, too many of us have allowed various forces to control the public’s thinking. We have allowed those voices to downplay the role God should play in our everyday decision making processes.
This does not mean, as the reactionaries would assert, that the Christian church should control our public institutions. It simply means that we should think on the precepts of God when making decisions, especially political decisions effecting millions of lives in America and abroad.
What the founders knew and so many of us have forgotten, is this: If you do not base your laws and thinking upon the immutable precepts of God, as I alluded to earlier if you cannot get the basics like protecting unborn life right, how can you expect someone to be wise enough to make the proper vote on a balanced budget?
That is the reason everywhere liberalism reigns you have misery and lack. Liberals base their ideas on man’s wisdom and disregard the truth within the wisdom given us by the God of our fathers.
There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof [are] the ways of death. Proverbs 14:12
All that being said, we need to keep in house debates… In house! We need a change in the White House. I admonish those of us inhabiting the right; to not do something that I myself have been guilty off.
Do not write or speak ill of the Republican candidates opposing your favorite. It is good to be passionate about your pick. Extol your candidates virtues for the entire world to hear, but let’s not do it at the expense of another candidate.
In other words, no hit pieces on the shortcomings of the various Republican candidates that can be used against them by the left if they win the nomination. Nothing fills a liberal with glee more than being able to say, “Your own side says this or that about you”.
Let the left do the dirt digging–If a candidate has bad ideas or questionable issues on our side, it’ll eventually come out.

Are your Kids being turned into Feminists at Public Schools?
By Mack Rights
Recently, my wonderful wife was talking to a friend of hers who was talking about how her little girl that is unfortunately getting Common Cored in a public school is being force fed feminism with a cow-stall-mucking shovel. And she’s concerned that the school isn’t cleaning the shovel first or something like that. Wait, no. My wife is actually convinced that it’s because those in charge of the nationalized school curriculum are paving the way for the ascension of the feminist Queen Hag of the Clinton Crime Family. My wonderful wife is always complaining that I never listen to everything she says. In my defense though, I most often assume she’s talking to her phone and don’t realize that I am obligated to listen in on her conversations. But that defense doesn’t fly very often.
So now, the government schools want your little girls to be a bunch of self-proclaimed feminists. Yay- unruly grandchildren at best, gay ones, if you’re lucky, but aborted ones more likely. Unfortunately for today’s little girl, she doesn’t know or understand the goal of the feminist movement or the consequences of joining this movement. That in mind, I’m going to explain it. Parents need a handbook on how to deprogram their children from the demonic inputs of the nationalized edumacation program being used to turn these children into Christ-hating little worker drones without an original thought or the ability to create such a thing.
Rather than looking at a little feminist-aspiring girl as the person who will most likely grow up to kill your grandchildren in the abortion clinic on Obama’s dime, parents need to show these future feminist baby killers the folly of the ideology to which they are willingly subscribing. We must remember that Satan hates life. He wants us to take it every chance we get- whether it’s on the street at the end of the gun or in the Democrat Party’s archipelago of baby-genocidal abortion mills. In order to get us to do the killing, he first gives us the tools to rationalize away these violations of God’s Law. And then he uses his workers in the government to institutionalize the teaching of these tools. He gave us Common Core. Thanks Satan. Continue reading
Rochester School Administrator Assaulted and sent to Emergency Room on Friday, April 24
-Incident much more serious than reported
By The Gold Lantern- FDFNY’s Underground Railroad conductor
The Rochester City School District released a statement:
A student who was in the school office struck a school administrator. The administrator was treated and released for minor injuries to the face, and the school is taking appropriate disciplinary action against the student. Principal Uma Mehta sent a message to families and staff saying that the behavior by this one student was unacceptable, and it does not reflect the high standards that the vast majority of students are working hard to meet every day.
The Assistant Principal at Wilson Magnet is being treated at an area hospital after being punched in the face multiple times by a female student Friday. According to Sandra Jordan, President of the Administrators Union of Rochester, the victim is currently in the emergency room under care of doctors and is getting x-rays.
The truth about the assault is much worse.
Staff who wish to remain anonymous learned that the girl put the administrator in a headlock, pulled her hair down, and punched her in the face repeatedly.
The scene has been reported as very bloody. The administrator’s nose was swollen, and friends are waiting to hear if she received stitches.
At this point, no charges have been placed against the student. Another student in the room at the time (also being disciplined by this administrator) wrote a statement saying that the administrator first put her hands around the girl’s neck and the attack was self-defense. This statement was written by a student who was also upset with the same administrator, and the allegation is most likely preposterous. Continue reading

Upon entering graduate school at Tennessee Temple University, I would learn some interesting things relative to some of our historic figures. Saint Patrick’s Day is upon us, and I deem it necessary to highlight the reason for his influence. Like many in our day, I had no idea how much of a saint he was. Continue reading

The headline in The Buffalo News on January 14, 2010 stated, “Feds Bring down Hammer on Wheatfield Drug Ring”. Unknown to the paper, the only thing that actually was about to be hammered was the integrity of the U.S. justice system. Cash flowed from four of the primary defendant’s legal teams, who were involved in this case; and it flowed directly into the campaign account of U.S. Attorney Hochuls’ wife, Congresswoman Kathy Hochul. The defendants detailed in the article bought the hammer off instead. See the original Buffalo News article here:http://www.buffalonews.com/incoming/article29952.ece (archived)
Ironically this cash flow started the day prior to the publishing of the Buffalo News article, which reported major actions taken in the case, by U.S. Attorney Hochul, on that same day. The news article was written on January 14th 2010. On January 13th, two of the legal teams paid the first installment of over $15,300, to Kathy Hochul’s campaign fund. At that time, U.S. Attorney Hochul was finalizing the court actions for two of the defendants in this drug ring.
The Buffalo News was accurate in both its headline and its expectations that the defendants should be hammered by the Feds. Their assumption was based on similar Federal cases, which were historically prosecuted resulting typically in prison terms, confiscated property and fines. Continue reading
Did Michael Brown Die for Our Sins?
By Mack Rights
If Michael Brown’s not the second coming of Christ or a messenger from God in the form of a prophet here to show us the error of our ways, then we, as a civilization, need to stop lionizing him as a hero. Heroes are to be emulated. We shine a spotlight on them and teach our children that that’s whom we should be like.
The effort of turning Michael Brown into a dead martyr in the war against racism is absurdly silly and dangerous in ways that we will only come to regret. Realizing that it is impolite to speak ill of the dead, this is really about speaking ill of those who’ve decided that the death of Michael Brown wasn’t a result of his own suicidal tendencies but of institutional racism. The misperception that Michael Brown died as a result of racism depends upon numerous lies being perpetrated over and over by those who benefit from the resulting societal chaos. Contrary to the well-known contention of Hitler’s liberal Minister of Propaganda Joseph Goebbels, even if a lie is repeated over and over and over, it doesn’t actually become the truth. Unlike your point of view, truth isn’t subjective. If a tree falls in the forest and nobody’s there to hear it, did it really fall? – Yep.
Michael Brown didn’t have his hands in the air, he wasn’t surrendering, and he wasn’t shot after pleading, “Don’t shoot.” That story is a lie put into the record by his buddy and sidekick for the robbery that they had just committed. And now, with the release of Attorney General Eric Holder’s Justice Department’s final report that explains why the police officer who shot Michael Brown has been exonerated because the “Hands up don’t shoot” battle cry was all based on a lie, it’s time to assess the damage that the Michael Brown fantasy has done to civilization. Some witnesses behind this lie even admitted to fearing for their lives if they were to tell the truth- not a fear that would be considered rational in a true civilization.
As a result of those who refused to see the truth while they clung to this lie, Ferguson, MO has been destroyed and turned into a no-go zone- like the Muslim areas of many European cities that have been abandoned by their governments after being completely conquered by the invading barbarians who refuse to allow government-employed police to do their jobs.
Civilized society will have no reason whatsoever to invest, visit or spend money in Ferguson, MO. There will be no jobs for the black man whose place of employment went up in flames and whose boss has rightly decided to get his business assets out of the barbaric cesspool of lawless degeneracy. Furthermore, when black people and supposedly enlightened white progressives fail to condemn what has been done in the name of martyred prophet of gangsta life Michael Brown, they are in essence endorsing their prophet’s actions which led to his death.
In Matthew 7:15-16, Jesus teaches that we will know the false prophets by their fruits: “15Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.16Ye shall know them by their fruits.” Continue reading

Obama Compares Hillary to a Smelly Car That No one Wants to Drive
By Mack Rights
In an America infected with a mainstreamed Clinton-Kinsey morality, it’s no surprise that The Cosby Show is banned from TV while 50 Shades of Grey, an S and M porn movie, makes over a $150 million playing in your local movie theaters. With that in mind, I have some questions that I think should be asked of Hillary Clinton before the 2016 election- but only after I’ve explained my reasoning for asking them. Of course, for reasons I explain, these questions will never be answered, simply because anyone with access will fear the repercussions of asking them even more than the imminent loss of access. The Clintons aren’t known to be patient with those who betray them. In their world, unlike the one imagined by our Founding Fathers, access is a privilege, not a right.
We know that Obama talks in code. When he said that he didn’t support gay marriage because he still had to get reelected and then refused to defend marriage in the court of law, he was actually telling all the gays that they should attack marriage in the court of law because he sure wasn’t going to do a thing to stop them. He was also saying that the gays should attack all Christians who aren’t willing to take part in the government-mandated blasphemous rewriting of the Word of God. While trying to take guns from Americans and buying up all the ammo to make sure his regulatory agencies have enough ammo to kill every American forty times, he was running guns to the Mexican drug cartels fast and furiously. In doing so, he was actually telling them that America will be yours (an allusion to the saying “The world is yours” from the movie Scarface). So use these guns to redistribute the wealth of the Americans in the South-West before you get them addicted to drugs, take away their land and make their vote meaningless. And with his refusal to admit that terrorism has anything to do with Islam, he’s telling the Muslims around the world to continue to kill Christians and Jews because he doesn’t care and won’t do a thing to stop them. At least, that is what is happening.
And that got me thinking. A couple of months ago, Obama was dodging a bunch of whiffle ball questions from one of the Clinton-spawned media darlings. George Stephenapoulos, former host of ABC’s “This is Weak,” was asking him about Hillary in 2016. Now remember, to these “open-minded” media people, Hillary is it. There isn’t anyone else. She’s a forgone conclusion. No one has what an illegal alien would call “cojones” to run against her because no one wants to get Vince Fostered to death.
Say what you want about the death of Vince Foster, but those close to the Clintons all think the Clintons had him whacked because he knew too much. People don’t normally walk through mud on a rainy night to dump their soon-to-be-dead-by-suicide body out of sight and not get mud on their shoes. I don’t care what they say in public, these Democrats think something completely different in private. They all know, don’t cross the Clintons. Not even the FBI was willing to investigate it thoroughly. And whether they killed Vince Foster or not (I don’t know), the Clintons still benefit from the gangsta-like fear that they actually did kill him. If they can’t be respected, they’ll make sure they’re feared.
Obama only got away with crossing her because he was black and had the race card to play. In the poker game of life, the race card is the equivalent of four wild jokers and an ace. There is also the fact that most Democrats don’t really like Hillary as a person. She might be an icon in her own mind and Democrats might tell pollsters that they like her because they don’t want to end up like Vince Foster, but she’s not that likeable. Ask her husband. He doesn’t even sleep in the same state as she does. Continue reading
