Cancer center bans Christian symbols!

These types of stories really make my blood boil. The Medical University of South Carolina Hollings Cancer Center has banned all religious symbols on its premises for this Christmas season. They did it so as not to "offend anyone"! Spokeswoman for the Hollings Cancer Center, Vicky Agnew said that decorations will be, "more secular and respectful to all beliefs." Agnew said, "We don't want to offend a volunteer with good intentions, but we need to think of the bigger picture. People who are Muslim or Jewish or have no religious beliefs come here for treatment."  This action is, "not meant to be cold," she said.

This is, sadly, yet another instance of arrogance, fundamental misunderstanding of our Constitution and an outright cowardice! Keep in mind this cancer center is where sick people are recuperating from serious illnesses and it has been proven in peer reviewed research that prayer and ones Christian faith does have a positive impact on patient recovery! If anyplace this is where such vital symbols of faith, encouragement and hope are needed. Our Constitution does not establish an absolute divorce of religious content from the public arena. The so-called separation of church and state clause was instituted to protect people of faith from the abuses of government - something which many of our forefathers had experienced in Europe.

The rights of the many are abrogated and sacrificed on the expedient altar of political correctness! So the fear of a hardhearted atheist or member of some other faith was so compelling that they were forced to take such a Draconian action? I think not. There has been a concerted effort by liberals, spearheaded by groups like the ACLU, for decades to systematically remove all evidence of our Judeo-Christian heritage from *any* public space. This attack has been concentrated mainly on court houses, public primary schools, hospitals, universities, state parks, and businesses. They've even gone after private property owners having a large cross on display. We must fight back against this tyranny. For too long people of faith and freedom lovers have sat back and allowed this evil to foster. Now is the time for action! Please take time to contact the Hollings Cancer Center and let them know that you are angered by their decision and want them to reverse it. Remember: Jesus is the Reason for the Christmas season!

Here is some helpful contact information I collected. Make your voice heard today!

Boycott NBC - removed "under God" from Pledge of Allegiance

During the recent U.S. Open broadcast this past Sunday, in the beginning of coverage NBC Sports division blatantly removed the words "under God" twice from the pledge of allegiance! As a Christian I am outraged by this slight. How dare they do this. And the lukewarm apology which was issued was very weak. Who is responsible for this? We demand to know who made the decision to have this deliberate omission, it was no accident. No doubt some hateful bitter atheist employee of NBC Sports who can't stand the fact that most people in this country are people of faith. This person deserves to be fired! ALL CHRISTIANS, JEWS AND MUSLIMS MUST BOYCOTT NBC! We must let NBC know that they will not get away with this evil action. God is not to be mocked. This is even a stupid move pragmatically since the vast majority of their audience and most people who buy products and services from their advertisers are people of faith who believe in God. So this was a very dumb move strategically.

This just shows how debased atheists are. If someone wants to believe in nothing I think they are wrong, but I won't try to harass them. However the New Atheists are not content to enjoy their disbelief, they feel compelled in a very infantile passive aggressive way to remove symbols and expressions of faith from all institutions both public and private. This just shows how intellectually bankrupt the New Atheism is (all of their arguments have been made before, by better men, and refuted) and how unethical they are! If they can't defeat you in an argument or in the court of public opinion they will seek to censor you. And another one of their tactics is to personally attack, mock and ridicule those who disagree with them. Richard Dawkins is infamous for doing this. If you don't subscribe to his brand of atheism you are derided as one who is self-deluded, anti-intellectual, uneducated, unintelligent, a fool or even insane. The same thing happens in academia all the time to conservative professors who disagree with the liberal establishment. Whoever at NBC Sports authorized this action is full of hatred and misery to be compelled to do such a thing.

UPDATE! My voice was heard. I've just received feedback from Christopher McCloskey. Praise God!


Thank you for writing regarding your concern over the beginning of our
U.S. Open coverage on Sunday.

We are aware of the distress this has caused many of our viewers and are
taking the issue very seriously.

Unfortunately, when producing the piece - which was intended to
capitalize on the patriotism of having our national championship played
in our nation's capital - a decision was made by a small group of people
to edit portions of the Pledge of Allegiance.

This was a bad decision.

As soon as management became aware of this decision and the controversy
it justifiably created, it immediately took steps to correct it
resulting in an on-air apology provided by NBC Sports' lead golf
commentator Dan Hicks.

It was not the intent of NBC to upset anyone and we sincerely apologize
to anyone who was offended.

Thank you again for taking the time to voice your concerns.

NBCUniversal Sports & Olympics
