On Dec. 26th., I reproduced two excellent letters from readers of the Pasadena Star Weekly. The lady who wrote the second letter has just emailed me as follows: "Thank you for finding and posting my "Jesusland" letter to the Pasadena Weekly. As you know, I was crucified as a "pseudo-intellectual" who voted for the fascist Bush and am willingly sending my family members to die in Iraq and Afghanistan. As I write this, my son-in-law has been coming under mortar attacks and is bravely doing what he believes to be right for his country and his beautiful little girl. I have been attacked by many Leftists who tell me and secretly hope that my family in the military will die and are fighting a useless battle. My friends served in Vietnam and I have never, never seen such vileness and hatred. You have given me a bit more resolve to go on. Bless You!"

Hmmm... I got a lot of email in response to my posts about the Trinity. I do rather regret raising the matter as I think that what I wrote did disturb a lot of good Christian people whom I really had no wish to disturb. For that reason most of my replies were a bit brief as I was reluctant to continue the discussion. Even so, I think that what I wrote did seriously disturb the faith of some. So that gives me a real dilemma. I could paternalistically refuse to continue the discussion, which does not treat my readers with much respect, or I could continue the discussion under DO NOT GO HERE warning flags. I have chosen the latter. I will for a time put up a separate blog devoted to scriptural exegesis which I would advise readers NOT to visit unless they are prepared to risk exposure to possibly threatening unorthodox views. So see "A scripture blog" for that. Today I look at John 1:3.

There is a rather aptly named Australian Leftist blog called "Cut-price Commentariat". A recent post there referred to "A Western Heart" (a group-blog I post to) as "Mike Jericho's posse of (now) out-and-out fascists". Why? Because one of the contributors welcomed the rumour that Osama has been warned that he risks Mecca being nuked if there are any more attacks on the USA. It should be noted that there have been no attacks on the USA since 9/11/2001 so the rumour is a plausible one. Our Lefty blogger however seems to think that using the THREAT of nuclear attack (which was also what kept the Soviets at bay and ensured the long post-1945 peace in the Western world) is "Fascist". Like most Leftists, however, he conveniently forgets his history. Who was the only national leader who ACTUALLY USED nukes? It was of course Democrat President Harry Truman, the heir of that great Leftist hero, FDR. So Harry Truman was clearly a "fascist" by the lights of our Lefty blogger -- which makes about as much sense as Leftist accusations usually do.

Sad news about the dippy Steve Kangas, whom I referred to yesterday. Gerry Jackson of Brookes News writes: "If this is the Steve Kangas I'm thinking of, he committed suicide sometime ago. Kangas was a very sad case and a very disturbed man. Nevertheless, he was still an "ass" who knew nothing about economic history, economics or any real political history. I completely demolished his defence of FDR's damaging economic policies. His response was pathetic".

The latest posting on MarxWords shows that Marx believed in dictatorship.

That power only, not principles, is what matters to Leftists is perfectly shown by the Kerry campaign. They put up a man whose policies seemed to be 99% the same as George Bush's even though the Left have previously disagreed violently with those policies. "Whatever it takes" is their rule.

Leftists are phonies. For most of them all that they want is to sound good. They don't care about doing good. That's why they do so much harm. They don't really care what the results of their policies are as long as they are seen as having good intentions.
