    It's The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year

    in Religion

    In light of the upcoming Holiday Season and as we prepare for this Most Wonderful Time Of The Year, we find that it isn't so wonderful for so many people.There are people that are hungry, there are people that are Homeless, there are many people doing badly. 

    The people in Ferguson Mo. at this time do not think that this particular time of the year is so wondreful. As their town has seen so much devastation last night, to which we are certainly keeping them in our prayers.

    We will also be taking with the Nassau Chapter President of the National Action Network; Elder Annette Dennis, we will be asking for her opinion of the goings on in Ferguson and also the role of the Rev. Al Sharpton.

    As for this Holiday season, let us not forget that there are so many people suffering. My sermon addresses this condition and takes place at the Westminster Presbyterian Church in Jamaica, NY.

    The View Up Here looks at the dysfunctional norms of the House of Commons

    in Politics

    Canadians have been witness to the steady decline of Parliament for decades now. Non-attendance, scheduled stunts or traditionally blasphemous behavior in the House. The wholesale decline of the Senate. The hijacking and handcuffing of committees. The general assertion that Parliament is now a tool for the party in power to sell their brand. Not to govern. Not to be held to account. Not to explain behavior and policy to the OWNERS of the place - Canadians.

    Of course, to learned watchers and average citizens alike, this is nothing new. But the naked contempt, the arrogant defiance, the indifference to tradition has been raised to never before seen levels by Emperor and the Corporate Pacification Committee (CPC). The core principles of the Westminster Parliament have been eroded and discarded to make things easier for the most corrupt Government in Canadian history.

    Nothing is more visible and symptomatic of this than the facade of the Speaker of the House of Commons. The last week has shown this once again to Canadians and the world. No other legislative chamber based on the British system has such a farce charged with keeping decorum, focus and relevance on the business of the nation. Andrew Scheer has brought new lows to the position. But he has hardly done it on his own or without direction. The Speaker is supposed to be impartial, treating all Members of Parliament with equal respect and regard. It takes one question exchange from Question Period to see this. A far cry from the Commons of the United Kingdom, where the Speaker has and does tell the Prime Minister when he is out of line and he shall be silent. Imagine that here. If you can.

    Join us to discuss this stain on our public portrayal to Canadians and the world. It is time for the pendulum to swing back. Calls welcome and encouraged tonight, lets hear what Canadians have to say!

    Pope Benedict at Westminster

    in Religion

    Pope Benedict entered the hall of the great and mighty rulers when he quietly entered the Westminster Hall, London. There he challenged the rulers of government, the powerful of society and the leaders of every area of Great Britain. His words were spoken very quietly yet carried throughout the hall like a thunder clasp. Then His Holiness went to Westminster Abbey and in a stunningly brilliant talk he outlined and forwarded the major tasks before Rome and Canterbury. His presentations in Scotland and now in London will echo around the world and this writer believes that his presentations have already impacted global Christian self understanding. His antagonists said he should not come, he came. They said, he should not speak, he did and what he had to say was like a beacon of light in the darkness of relativism, secularism and modernism! A diminuative man in stature, Benedict is a hero of Christianity.
