2012.02.15 Chipper Connin: Compromise is a problem

Written by David Green.

Compromise (not a lack of) is one of America’s biggest problems. Slavery was accepted in our founding by one vote. Because of that compromise millions have suffered. This happened again when the Church compromised with Darwinists instead of standing firm on Genesis, and so had no defense in the Scopes trial. Because of that, evolution was allowed to be taught in our schools.

Then because of compromise with the liberal Atheists, God was kicked out of our schools in 1962. In 1963 S.A.T. scores dropped by 80 points and have never recovered, America began hemorrhaging jobs, and picking up increasing debt to make up for it. Then our increasingly liberal judges and media said abortion was okay in the 1970s and the downhill moral slope increased. Today we see abortion, gay marriage and hate crimes laws, as well as increasing legislation taking ever more rights and liberties away.  

Yes, Jesus is about love, but not about compromise, or coexistence with false doctrines. Our troubles stem from the Church sitting back silently while being told where they can speak and even told that politics is taboo from the pulpit. We need to allow our pastors to speak freely without worrying about the Church’s tax exempt status being put in jeopardy.   

In short we need our lawmakers to take a stand for Judeo-Christian values.  If the courts get in the way, remove the judges. They are not appointed for life, only for the term of good behavior.  

We need to quit compromising our principles in the ballot box and voting for who we think is electable, and instead vote first for those whose values represent those of our Christian (the vast majority were) founding fathers.

Then if multiple candidates fill that role, look at who is most electable. When we compromise on this, we end up with “moderates” in office. These are people who have no real foundational beliefs and so won’t stand up for the Constitution and our Nation. They perform poorly and so we lose the next election and continue the downward slide. It is much better to vote based on what is right and maybe lose an election to the other side than to put moderates in office and continue to make the problem worse. Maybe a few lost elections will wake people up. Stand for something people! Quit compromising with the enemies of the Constitution!

    A PERFORMER named Biligbaatar, a member of the AnDa Union troupe from Inner Mongolia, dances at Stair District Library last week during a visit to the Midwest. The nine-member group blends a variety of traditions from Inner and Outer Mongolia. The music is described as drawing from “all the Mongol tribes that Genghis Khan unified.” The group considers itself music gatherers whose goal is to preserve traditional sounds of Mongolia. Biligbaatar grew up among traditional herders who live in yurts. Additional photos are on the back page of this week’s Observer.
  • Front.base Ball
    UMPIRE Thomas Henthorn tosses the bat between team captains Mikayla Price and Chuck Piskoti of Flint’s Lumber City Base Ball Club. Following the 1860 rules, after the bat was grabbed by the captains, captains’ hands advanced to the top of the bat—one hand on top of the other. The captain whose hand ended up on top decided who would bat first. Additional photos of Sunday’s game appear on page 12 of this week’s Observer. The contest was organized in conjunction with Stair District Library’s Hometown Teams exhibit that runs through Nov. 20.

    VALUE OF ATHLETICS—Morenci graduate John Bancroft (center) takes a turn at the microphone during a chat session at the opening of the Hometown Teams exhibit at Stair District Library. Clockwise to his left is John Dillon, Jed Hall, Jim Bauer, Joe Farquhar, George Hollstein, George Vereecke and Mike McDowell. Thomas Henthorn (at the podium) kicked off the conversation. Henthorn, a University of Michigan–Flint professor, will return to Morenci this Sunday to lead a game of vintage base ball at the school softball field.

    HUDSON RUNNER Jacob Morgan looks toward the top of the hill with dismay during the tough finish at Harrison Lake State Park. Fayette runner Jacob Garrow focuses on the summit, also, during the Eagle Invitational cross country run Saturday morning. Continuing rain and drizzle made the course even more challenging. Results of the race are in this week’s Observer.

    Crossing over—Jim Heiney was given a U.S. flag to carry by George Vereecke (behind Jim in the hat), turning him into the leader of the parade. Bridge Walk participants cross over Bean Creek while, in the background, members of the Morenci Legion Riders cross the main traffic bridge on East Street South.

    HOSE safety—The FireCatt hose testing company from Troy put Morenci Fire Department hose to the test Monday morning when Mill Street was closed to traffic. The company also checks nozzles and ladders for wear in an effort to keep fire fighters safe while on calls.
