On “Blood Libel” Sarah has one point to make.
Her own church got torched, children’s lives were at stake.
The media kept silence
To not promote violence
Christians endure much. How much does it take?
Dec 14 2008. — Andrew Malcolm
Sarah Palin, her husband Todd and up to 1,000 fellow parishioners will worship in a local school this morning after a suspicious fire virtually destroyed the Wasilla Bible Church early Saturday. Some women and children in a crafts group were inside at the time. Larry Kroon said some parishioners were in the church on Nicola Avenue at the time the fire was noticed but no one was injured. Firefighters battled for about eight hours in minus-20 degree temperatures to completely extinguish the blaze that began at the front door.
The former Republican vice presidential candidate went to the church Saturday to apologize to pastors in case the estimated $1 million fire damages, suspected as arson, were “in any way connected to the undeserved negative attention the church has received” since the governor’s involvement with the church.
The 30-year-old congregation in Wasilla, about 40 miles north of Anchorage, had moved into its new church just 30 months ago. Church officials said they expect to hold services at the Wasilla Middle School for the foreseeable future during repairs.
Though several federal, state and local agencies were involved in the investigation, no arrests have been made, nor have any solid leads been announced. The media reported the fire and the subsequent determination that arson was involved, but quickly lost interest in the story. The Obama administration closed the federal part of the investigation.
In the ensuing weeks since the fire, there doesn’t seem to have been much media attention or outcry against the anonymous attack on a house of worship. Probably just because Wasilla is so far away. (Yes, that’s probably the reason.)
The illustration on the left, located at the cult-church of Anderl von Rinn until recently, portrays the “martyrdom” of Anderl, a three year-old boy who became the focus of a blood-libel cult in the seventeenth-century. Anderl is the child being held down and having his throat slit. The killers are clearly marked as Jews by their clothes and turbans (one form of the “special mark” Jews were forced to carry by Church decree).
The third, lower, figure is collecting the child’s blood in a bowl. The myth of the blood libel was that the blood of a Christian child was used to make Passover matzohs.
“Blood Libel” is termed the new phrase of the week.
As ugly as sin and not fit for the weak.
Sarah Palin, she dared
The apt term to be shared.
For hate is much worse than a slow dripping leak.
While most liberal Jews attacked Sarah Palin for using a term she knew nothing about and was offending them in so doing, the famous law professor Alan Dershowitz defended her use of the term, saying “I myself have used it to describe false accusations against the State of Israel by the Goldstone Report. There is nothing improper and certainly nothing anti-Semitic in Sarah Palin using the term to characterize what she reasonably believes are false accusations that her words or images may have caused a mentally disturbed individual to kill and maim. The fact that two of the victims are Jewish is utterly irrelevant to the propriety of using this widely used term.

As Christians we have only one risen hero.
He died for our sins on the cross at ground zero.
I’ll Muslims embrace,
But first they must face
The truth in the great ”Iron Cross” at ground zero
A lawsuit against Augusta State University in Georgia alleges school officials essentially gave a graduate student in counseling the choice of giving up her Christian beliefs or being expelled from the graduate program. School officials Mary Jane Anderson-Wiley, Paulette Schenck and Richard Deaner demanded student Jen Keeton, 24, go through a “remediation” program after she asserted homosexuality is a behavioral choice, not a “state of being” as a professor said, according to the complaint.
A “Limerick” is coming up right now:
If you follow Jesus, take remediation,
for gays are protected from scrutinization,
Repent of your ways!
For faith never pays,
says ASU Georgia’s administration.
The picture at left shows Obama together with Raila Odinga during a campaign stop in 2006, while a U.S. senator.
Last week, in response to inquiries from Reps. Chris Smith, R-N.J., Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, R-Fla., and Darrell Issa, R-Calif., the U.S. Agency for International Development, or USAID, admitted to spending more than $23 million of U.S. taxpayer money to influence voters in Kenya to pass the highly contentious constitution.
Here comes the Limerick.
Obama has paid for a new constitution.
Not ours, but Kenya’s, sort of restitution.
It features abortions,
Isn’t it treason, or just my confusion?
It seems that this country is coming to pieces
On Tea Party Movement the left hate releases.
We’re going to pot!
Our economy shot.
Obama loves enterprise less than dogs’ feces.
That was the Limerick that came to me when I read the blogs on the financial side. In the evening my Wife and I went to a prayer meeting where we prayed for our country and its leaders, even down to Obama’s children that they could go to Bible School and familiarize themselves with the old spirituals. In that day they understood that their real home was not USA, and not Africa. No, their real home was in heaven. We also prayed that our constitution would survive the assaults. Again I realized the battle is not economical and not political, but intensely spiritual.
Here is the modified limerick:
It seems that our country is going to pieces
On our Constitution the left hate releases.
Our freedom gets lost,
We must pray at all cost!
Obama loves liberty less than dogs’ feces.
The Pompous Elite with their minds international
Say Sarah can’t govern, her thoughts are not rational
On the Cross she believes
And salvation receives.
Replace God with State, and your worldview is fractional.
