Out of the Mainstream

Not "Everybody Love's Raymond". I may have watched a total of 10 minutes of this sitcom during it's entire run. No apologies, just didn't care for it. Flipped around the channels and caught (by chance) the last 12 minutes of American Idol's final. It was fun to watch, but I don't set my clock by it. I'm really a "Law and Order" junkie. Especially the original re-runs with Lenny and the gang. SVU has some great episodes and there's some kind of solace for me when they nail the "sickos". I've even been caught switching to a law and order re-run right in the middle of a (SF) Giants game. Now that's a carnal sin in our family, cause we've been Giants fans since the days of Mays and McCovey. Out of the mainstream? Who knows?

In the order of what is most important in my life, I put my faith in Christ, my family and friends (who are just like family), and the love I have for my country. Am I a Christian Conservative? You bet! I also fully support my Commander and Chief in his decision to take the fight against terrorism to their own shores and not in my backyard. Why have so many been blinded or have become numb to fact that over 3000 innocent lives were taken (burned alive or crushed by those collapsing towers) by the most radical fanatics who's only mission in their lives is to put an end to ours. They wear no uniforms. They represent no particular country. They murder indiscriminately with no regard or compassion for anyone in their path. Mothers and fathers, young women and children are blown up daily for their "cause" and the world calls them "freedom fighters"? Give me a break! These sicko's are the scum of the earth. And for those of you who glorify these scumbags or somehow think this society is responsible for their "sickness" are sadly misguided and completely mistaken. Let me put that a little more passionately. Your an idiot! We either take this battle to them or they will return to our shores. And they will not care if you had sympathy for their asinine cause. They will kill you and your children. And yes, God will judge them. I pray that Christ will forgive me if I have to defend myself, my family, my friends from these "sickos" if they return to our shores. Am I "out of the mainstream"? You be the judge, ..................... or judge not.
