Pathway in the Sea

Ever see a butterfly flutter by? John 3:7-8

Psalm 77:19

Thy way is in the sea, and thy path in the great waters, and thy footsteps are not known.

"The best way to show that a stick is crooked is not to argue about it or to spend time denouncing it, but to lay a straight stick along side it."

The "failure" of "multiculturalism" and the failure of Glenn Beck's perceptive faculties.

Hey, Glenn! Let's not be like Europe and say we were!

The failure of multiculturalism

Friday, Feb 11, 2011 at 2:03 PM EST
Glenn’s been talking abut the dangers of multiculturalism, but now world leaders are starting to agree with him. Instead of having a melting pot, there has been a growing belief that countries and societies should allow segregated groups to flourish with values that run opposite the values and culture of the home country.
British Prime Minister David Cameron explained, “We have even tolerated these segregated communities behaving in ways that run counter to our values. So when a white person holds objectionable views — racism, for example — we rightly condemn them. But when equally unacceptable views or practices have come from someone who isn’t white, we’ve been too cautious, frankly even fearful, to stand up to them.”
French President Nicholas Sarkozy said, “Of course we must all respect differences, but we do not want… a society where communities coexist side by side. If you come to France, you accept to melt into a single community, which is the national community, and if you do not want to accept that, you cannot be welcome in France. The French national community cannot accept a change in its lifestyle, equality between men and women… freedom for little girls to go to school.”
Glenn’s response?
“Cameron launched a scathing attack earlier this month on 30 years of multiculturalism in Britain, warning that it is fostering extremism. His damning verdict came months after German chancellor Angela Merkel said that multiculturalism in Germany has failed. Now Sarkozy is joining the number, the growing number of European leaders who have adopted identical views. He told the French people, we have been too concerned about the identity of the person who is arriving and not enough about the identity of the country that was receiving him,” Glenn said.
“The answer is clear, but is anybody willing to say that here? Is anybody? The answer is clear. And what’s wrong with me? The answer, you want to be more like Europe? Then listen to Europe! Listen to what they’re saying. Socialism hasn’t worked. Multiculturalism doesn’t work! We’re still behind.”
I am listening to what they are saying, and, unlike you, I am hearing what they are saying.
Matthew 10

16Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves:be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves.
17But beware of men: for they will deliver you up to the councils, and they will scourge you in their synagogues;
18And ye shall be brought before governors and kings for my sake, for a testimony against them and the Gentiles.
19But when they deliver you up, take no thought how or what ye shall speak: for it shall be given you in that same hour what ye shall speak.
20For it is not ye that speak, but the Spirit of your Father which speaketh in you.
21And the brother shall deliver up the brother to death, and the father the child: and the children shall rise up against their parents, and cause them to be put to death.

22And ye shall be hated of all men for my name's sake: but he that endureth to the end shall be saved.

Cameron: My war on multiculturalism

David Cameron launched a devastating attack today on 30 years of multiculturalism in Britain, warning it is fostering extremist ideology and directly contributing to home-grown Islamic terrorism.
Signalling a radical departure from the strategies of previous governments, Mr Cameron said that Britain must adopt a policy of "muscular liberalism" to enforce the values of equality, law and freedom of speech across all parts of society.
He warned Muslim groups that if they fail to endorse women's rights or promote integration, they will lose all government funding.All immigrants to Britain must speak English and schools will be expected to teach the country's common culture.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Pilgrims (US), or Pilgrim Fathers (UK), is a name commonly applied to early settlers of the Plymouth Colony in present-day Plymouth, Massachusetts, United States. Their leadership came from the religious congregations of English Dissenters who had fled the volatile political environment in the East Midlands of England for the relative calm and tolerance of Holland in the Netherlands. Concerned with losing their cultural identity, the group later arranged with English investors to establish a new colony in North America. The colony, established in 1620, became the oldest continuously inhabited British settlement and the second successful English settlement (after the founding of Jamestown, Virginia in 1607) in what was to become the United States of America. The Pilgrims' story of seeking religious freedom has become a central theme of the history and culture of the United States.

First Amendment to the United States Constitution
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

Ecclesiastes 9

11I returned, and saw under the sun, that the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, neither yet bread to the wise, nor yet riches to men of understanding, nor yet favour to men of skill; but time and chance happeneth to them all.
12For man also knoweth not his time: as the fishes that are taken in an evil net, and as the birds that are caught in the snare; so are the sons of men snared in an evil time, when it falleth suddenly upon them.
13This wisdom have I seen also under the sun, and it seemed great unto me:
14There was a little city, and few men within it; and there came a great king against it, and besieged it, and built great bulwarks against it:
15Now there was found in it a poor wise man, and he by his wisdom delivered the city; yet no man remembered that same poor man.
16Then said I, Wisdom is better than strength:nevertheless the poor man's wisdom is despised, and his words are not heard.
17The words of wise men are heard in quiet more than the cry of him that ruleth among fools.
18Wisdom is better than weapons of war: but one sinner destroyeth much good.

INS. Immigration and Naturalization Service. "Service."
Melting Pot. Purifies the metal and separates the impurities.
One free-enterprise nation under God.

ICE. Immigration and Customs Enforcement."Enforcement."
Trash compactor. Reduces everything to an easily managed unit of worthless garbage.

"Independence Day" is the Fourth of July.
"Independence Day" commemorates the "Declaration of Independence" of the United States of America.

"May Day" is the First of May.
"May Day" commemorates the founding of the New World Order.

We don't say "May Day" when we're in trouble.
We say "Broken Arrow!"
