Ok, since I really enjoyed the video below, I thought to read the short (16 page) Arizona immigration bill (PDF) myself and see what all the hubub is about. Even though I am politically conservative, I do believe we need a compromise solution that enforces our borders and has compassion on people fleeing the poverty and corruption of Mexico (though the current administration is trying hard to shut down the drug cartels).
Summary? I think the law is a little too harsh, but only a little. Even 'worse,' AZ Senator Russel Pierce argued on The O'Reilly Factor last night (also below) that giving citizenship to the children of illegals born in the US is NOT covered by the Fourteenth Amendment, nor by court cases since. His argument is very interesting, and not out of the question.
I didn’t know he was lost. Seriously though, if they found him, I can tell you where. Supposedly, his body is buried in the Mosque of the Prophet in Medina. However, the point is, he is dead, but Jesus rose from the dead. And may I add, Momo’s words bring death, but Jesus’ bring life.
Not sure that Jesus actually rose from the dead? You can always listen to William Lane Craig or Lee Stroble defend that proposition.
As is often the case with controversies surrounding politicians, much of the rhetoric on Rep. Mark Souder's affair with a staffer has been divided politically. As I have stated on numerous occasions, hypocrisy makes it worse on these type of issues for conservative Republicans, especially those who claim to be committed Christians.
As I wrote previously, Lang wrote Leaving to Stay about leaving faith, but recently returned to faith and wrote this beautiful song as a testimony – I think this duet is with his wife.
This last studio CD, Turn Around, won the 2007 Grammy for Best Rock Gospel Album.
Jonny Lang, who left his childhood faith, returned to it a few years ago, and won a Grammy on the first CD that came out of that experience.
But before he returned to faith, he wrote and performed this song on Wander This World during his ‘lost’ period. Amazing song and lyrics.
I came upon Susan Ashton’s debut album, which was awesome, especially this song, which is written to atheists. Enjoy the lyrics – it’s also beautifully arranged and sung.
