When people think you are nuts!!

This is a very timely piece from CITIZEN WARRIOR.
I for one, get looks from people with she goes again...look on their faces. Especially this paragraph....

"Many potential citizen warriors clam up when they get this kind of reaction. They give up. They feel demoralized. To explain these setbacks they blame the media or the closed mind of their listener."

Well, I tend to blame the closed mind of the listener, their ignorance, their not wanting to know or their...well it is not happening right here right now so I don't care attitudes...

So I am grateful for this piece of encouragement from CITIZEN WARRIOR.
I hope it encourages you too...if you need it that is....
Sometimes I feel I am all alone as I do not know another person (personally, or even to contact) who I can talk to about this jihad threat here in Australia, and the world, yet I know there are many who educate themselves and contribute as posters to forums.

So here is the latest from Citizen it and pass it on to those who may need a little bit of encouragement.

When People Think Youre Nuts
Posted: 20 Jan 2009 01:57 PM CST

I'VE BEEN in a lot of conversations with people about Islam, and I've experienced many people who think I'm nuts. Or at least think I'm exaggerating. Or they think I watch too much Fox News (I don't have cable and I've never seen Fox News). Or they think I must be a racist bigot. For sure I must be a Christian or a Jew (I am neither).

It is hard for people to grasp this information. Especially the fact that Islam has an inherent supremacist doctrine in its most foundational teachings. And that Mohammad was intolerant and violent and Muslims are supposed to follow his example.

They don't want to hear it. It must not be true. It CAN'T be true! You can hear in the back of their minds, "God help us if it's true!" Okay, now I'm hearing things in the back of people's minds. Maybe I am nuts.

Many potential citizen warriors clam up when they get this kind of reaction. They give up. They feel demoralized. To explain these setbacks they blame the media or the closed mind of their listener.

But a citizen warrior like yourself will not be demoralized for long. You will keep your morale high. You will look at your explanations of your setbacks and remove the mistakes in your thinking that made you feel discouraged and frustrated. And you will get back in the game and fight to win!

You will stay motivated. You'll set achievable short-term goals to keep you focused. You'll respond with purpose and commitment. You'll think in terms of small bits and long campaigns. When one approach doesn't work, you won't give up, you'll find a better approach. You'll learn how to gain better rapport with people and make your points more effectively.

You won't give up. You're a warrior. You'll take the blows in the battle and keep fighting the good fight. For all our sakes, you will keep fighting.

new arrival

Gotta let the world Grand Daughter had her baby yesterday...or rather last night.... a very healthy little girl weighing in at 7lb 9ozs. God sure does provide us with it if they are small or big. And this beautiful little baby sure is that...a miracle, as is every new-born. We must strive to make this world a safe place for the following generations...I for one do not want to leave such a horrible legacy such as the islamist way of life. We all need to stand up and be counted and insist on our Governments to think of the people they just happen to work for. Stop trying to appease other countries and stop thinking of the almighty dollar and the oil situation. There are other means of renewable energy and if we have to learn to change a few of our habits and waste to accommodate other sources instead of oil...then so be it. Australia has its own source of oil and natural gas so instead of selling it off to other countries I would like to see it be used for people here.
I do not understand why people in the USA are going on about oil being taken from Alaska. Isn't it better for that oil to be used rather than be stuck with arab oil and all that comes with it?

Christian refuses to drive bus with 'No God' ads.

Christian Refuses to Drive Buses with 'No God' Ads

A Christian bus driver refused to drive buses carrying an advertisement that declares “There’s probably no God.”
• 'Why Believe in a God?' Ads to Hit U.S. Buses
• Atheist Ads Hit London Buses
Speaking to BBC Radio Solent, Ron Heather said he felt “shock” and “horror” at the slogan on the ads when he turned up for work last Saturday.
The ads have been put up by the British Humanist Association on buses across the United Kingdom with the support of prominent atheist Professor Richard Dawkins. They proclaim: “There’s probably no God. Now stop worrying and enjoy your life.”
Heather returned to work on Monday with bus operators, First Bus, who said they would try to ensure he did not have to drive buses carrying the ads.
"I was just about to board and there it was staring me in the face, my first reaction was shock horror," Heather told BBC Radio Solent.
"I felt that I could not drive that bus, I told my managers and they said they haven't got another one and I thought I better go home, so I did," he said. "I think it was the starkness of this advert which implied there was no God."
The atheist posters are in response to a number of high profile Christian advertising campaigns on buses and billboards, notably ones by the Alpha Course, whose posters ask, "Is this it?" and "If God did exist, what would you ask him?"
Christians have generally welcomed the atheist ads, saying they provide an opportunity to talk about God.
The Methodist Church's Spirituality and Discipleship Officer, the Rev. Jenny Ellis, said: "This campaign will be a good thing if it gets people to engage with the deepest questions of life … Christianity is for people who aren't afraid to think about life and meaning.”
The director of Faith-based think tank Theos, Paul Woolley, said the ads were “hardly going to be a great comfort for those who are concerned about losing their jobs or homes in the recession.”
"And what does it tell us to do when we stop worrying?” he continued. “Volunteer overseas? Give money to charity? Campaign for the environment? No. It tells us to enjoy ourselves. It would be hard to come up with a more self-centered message than this."

Maybe this bus driver is simply giving back what has been done and is being done to Christians in the UK and other places around the world....muslims won't do this or that because it offends them...well this sign about there being no God would have offended me too. It is about time that Christians or not start standing up to be counted and tell these islamists that they come to our homelands and therefore should respect the religions and culture of the peoples of said homeland....just as we all try to respect their ideology/political/religion system. They migrate then expect everyone not to insult them but they have no qualms about the insults they heap on everyone else. And all the concessions they insist upon regardless of the inconveniences it causes to the natives of the host country. If they don't like it they are more than welcome to return to where they came from.
