...Obamacare has been ruled unconstitutional. Dah!

The supreme court should follow suit and rule the same way upon appeal. The balance of powers has saved us from tyranny once again.

Chinese to build our military planes??!!

I am sure liberals will be jumping all over support for this, liberalism is a mental disorder, but I think we have to draw the line somewhere. This just seems insane.

Not to mention all the lost US jobs, AGAIN!

What is the fastest growing religion in the world?

Answer: Christianity.

Most here will probably answer Islam, but a form of biblically inspired evangelical Christianity is sweeping through places like China, Africa, India and Southeast Asia – making it, by far, the fastest growing faith on the planet. Our church sponsors a missionary to Nigeria and he reports that the response to the Gospel is miraculous. Who are the greatest majority of converts? Muslims. And this even amidst threat of death from their former muslim brothers.

Christianity is overlooked as the fastest-growing faith in the world because most surveys look at the traditional Protestant denominations and the Roman Catholic Church while ignoring Christian believers who have no part of either. In the book Mega Shift, author James Rutz makes to following claims:

* The growing core of Christianity crosses theological lines and includes 707 million born-again people who are increasing by 8 percent a year

* There will be pockets of resistance and unforeseen breakthroughs, still, at the rate we're growing now, to be comically precise, there would be more Christians than people by the autumn of 2032, about 8.2 billion

* until 1960, Western evangelicals outnumbered non-Western evangelicals – mostly Latinos, blacks and Asians – by two to one. As of 2000, non-Western evangelicals outnumbered Westerners by four to one. That moved to seven to one this year

* There are now more missionaries sent from non-Western nations than Western nations

* This trend has been missed by Westerners because the explosive growth is elsewhere

* Hundreds of millions of these Christians are simply not associated with the institutional churches at all. They meet in homes. They meet underground. They meet in caves. They meet, he says, in secret

* By tomorrow, there will be 175,000 more Christians than there are today

Just food for thought...
