McCain calls for pro-life presidency / Bush Administration moves to protect pro-life doctors / $28,500 for glimpse of "The One" / Preacher Pelosi's Scripture quotes can't be found in Bible / Pelosi says God sent Barack Obama / Not really news - Pelosi is nuts / Christians forced off campus at spear point / Muslims kill hundreds of innocent civilians all over the world this week


MCCAIN CALLS FOR PRO-LIFE PRESIDENCY- At the forum held at Saddleback Church, best selling Christian author Pastor Rick Warren asked Senator John McCain at what point a baby is entitled to human rights. John McCain answered: "At the moment of conception. I have a 25- year pro-life record in the Congress, in the Senate. And as president of the United States, I will be a pro-life president. And this presidency will have pro-life policies. That's my commitment. That's my commitment to you."

BUSH ADMINISTRATION ON CONSCIENCE - On Thursday the Department of Health and Human Services proposed regulations to protect the right of conscience for pro-life medical workers by requiring that recipients of federal funds verify that they are complying with the Hyde-Weldon and other conscience laws. Hyde-Weldon is an appropriations rider that prevents discrimination against physicians, health care professionals, hospitals, health insurance plans, or any other kind of health care facility, who object to abortion on the basis of "religious beliefs or moral convictions."

$28,500 TO GLIMPSE "THE ONE" - Last Sunday Barack Obama collected $7.8 million at three fundraisers in San Francisco. At one event for VIPs he charged $28,500 per person to get a glimpse of him. Although I have no proof, I am told by sources that the men's and women's rest room signs at these events were changed to "Person Rest Stations." Read more

"PREACHER" NANCY PELOSI'S SCRIPTURE- On several occasions this year Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi has said, "The Bible tells us in the Old Testament, 'To minister to the needs of God's creation is an act of worship. To ignore those needs is to dishonor the God who made us.' " However, this passage does not appear anywhere in the Old or New Testament. In fact there is nothing close enough to even paraphrase it. One Baptist scholar said it was "fictional." Pelosi's office refused to comment.

PELOSI'S DIVINE REVELATION - According to Nancy Pelosi, God has given her a revelation that He has "blessed" America with Barack Obama . Not only does Pelosi quote Scripture that does not exist, now she has word directly from God that he has chosen Barack Obama to be our leader. She also claims to be a Catholic who is pro-abortion and thinks men who practice anal sex with each other should receive marriage licenses. Read more
