Moral Courage

What is courage? According to one definition, courage (also known as bravery, will, and fortitude) is the ability to confront rear, pain, risk/danger, uncertainty, or intimidation. "Physical courage" is bravery in the face of physical pain, hardship, or threat of death.

We see courage on display every day from our troops defending our freedom overseas, as well as those brave police officers and firefighters that put their lives on the line for us every day.
physical courage is not the only kind of courage that exists. There is also moral courage, the ability to do what is right in the face of popular opposition or discouragement.

It takes courage to do the right thing today, to stand up for what the Bible says about right and wrong, good and evil.

It takes courage to live honestly, with integrity, avoiding the "shortcuts" that may get you ahead but take you down spiritually and morally.

It takes courage to honor the vows you made to be faithful to your spouse and stand by them "for better or for worse, for richer and poorer, in sickness and health," as opposed to abandoning them when the marriage gets challenging.

It takes courage to remain sexually pure as a single person with all the pressure today from peers and the media.

And it takes courage to follow Jesus Christ, no matter how hard it gets.

a word from Rush

Pearl of Wisdom from Rush Limbaugh: "I got a request here from a major American print publication asking for 400 words on my hope for the Obama presidency. I don't need 400 words. I need four: I hope he fails. Everybody thinks that's outrageous to say. What's unfair about my saying I hope liberalism fails? Were the liberals out there hoping Bush succeeded or were they out there trying to destroy him? Liberalism is our problem. It's what has gotten us dangerously close to the precipice. Why do I want more of it?"

notes from the Glenn Beck program..

IN less than one Week Barak Obama will take the Office of the President... where will our country be headed? will we become a socialist nation?

January 13, 2009- GLENN BECK

Every liberal policy in a nutshell

Janeane Garofalo (annoying liberal, bad comedian) is in this season of '24' as one of the computer geeks that can access all kinds of live traffic cams for the FBI and such and so far is actually very good. One scene featuring Garofalo caught Glenn's attention because it was the perfect example of what liberal decision making is based on. Read the transcript.

Goodbye Gitmo?

Barack Obama says he's going to shut down Gitmo---well, sort of shut it down. He talks tough about shutting it down---yet he also rambles on about how tough that will be (like, gee, where are we going to put all of these terrorists?) and maybe it won't get done as fast as he wants it to. Obama and the rest of the weasels in Washington are lowering the expectation bar so low that if they did nothing it would be an accomplishment--it's time for real leadership in Washington, not focus groups and polling data and trying to please all sides. Will Obama be able to shut down Gitmo---and should he? Read the transcript.
