    I'm glad to hear it. He appears to be a good man for the job.

    Kudos to President Bush for this appointment. :thumbs:

    Is there any job that a Muslim can hold in the government that you wouldn't complain about, LE?

    I reckon your comment is in response to all of the Christians that are serving in leading roles within muslim regimes.

    Why there must be millions of Christians serving in those free and compassionate governments.

    Oh, my goodness!!
    LadyEagle, did you just provide a link from the "truthout" website?
    You are going to be accused of being a LIBERAL!
    :laugh:

    Seriously, does this really surprise you? Yet another person from the oil industry is tapped for a post by the Bush Administration. Perhaps he will bring the stellar success we have seen in Iraq to the world stage up in Manhattan.

    To quote Bob Dylan: "Yes, 'n' how many times can a man turn his head,
    Pretending he just doesn't see?"



    Regards, LadyEagle: hope you and yours are well tonight,
    BiR

    As soon as muslims show that they have the courage to help lead the world to a greater peace, then I think they should be given opportunities to lead . . .

    Until they can control their people, they do not have much courage.

    OH NO!!!!!! Someone connected in some fashion with the oil industry! OH NO!!!!!!

    And connected to the oft cited Afghanistan OIL PIPELINE project. OH NO!!!!!!

    I tell you what - you folks that think the oil industry is so evil, why don't you stop driving your cars and walk or ride a bicycle instead? At least then ya'll wouldn't be HYPOCRITES on the issue.

    I thought we Christians are supposed to be better than that. I thought we Christians were supposed to look at each person as an individual and give him/her a fair shake based on his behavior, not someone else's.

    No wonder the church is so weak nowadays. There are too many folks who call themselves Christians who are no better than the people they constantly badmouth.

    So, if I am going to drive my car, I must simply accept everything like a mindless automaton? I see......

    No, but senseless, mindless knee jerk bashing of people of a religion or of an industry is uncalled for, uncivil, and, most of all, unChristian.

    And knowing you from your posts, BIR, I think you will agree.

    I agree!!!!!!!!!!

    Bashing Believers for supporting God and the Truth found only in His Word is only the

    Someday we will be free from the bashing of the unChristians - that will be heaven [conservatively speaking that is].

    Seeming to badmouth every person who is a Muslim simply for being a Muslim is not supporting God or His truth.

    Some of you people are seem to be incorrigible.

    I'm taking some time off from this board. I've had all I can stand of the "Christian" posting by some of you for a while.

    Adios.

    I agree with you, EG, that as soon as muslims show that they have the courage to help lead the world to a greater peace, then I think they should be given opportunities to lead . . . until then, I am glad to be a Christian infidel....

    More seriously . . .

    'Christians' ridiculed and attacked the Christians in Germany that stood up against the impending doom.

    No, I am not comparing the ideologies that were opposed.

    But, I am intrigued at how some 'Christians' consistently believe that Christians should support other religions. I am surprised that some would expect other Christians to not be in agreement with the Word of God. I am amazed that some would attack believers that do not support foreign religions and foreign 'gods.'

    Once again LE appears to desire an unconstitutional religious test for government officials.

    I am happy with our constitution and its protection of individuals to worship in the manner they see fit.

    I am opposed to any Christian version of Sharia Law.

    I believe that our Christian faith and our Lord are strong enough to survive religious freedom in our country.

    We are not talking about a person worshipping in the manner they see fit.

    We are talking about a person whose religious/political beliefs (if he is a true muslim) are in contradiction to our way of life and the country he will represent in the UN.

    The question is why, when our country claims to be a majority of Christians, would a president appoint a muslim to represent us at the UN? Whose interests will that person represent, the US interests, or the interests of allah?

    As far as this man being "qualified" for the job, I can't see where he has done such a great job at his previous appointment, US Ambassador to Iraq. What great achievements has he accomplished in that post?

    The question of our Christian faith and Lord being strong enough to survive religious freedom in our country is not relevent to the discussion on this topic. We are not talking about religious freedom in our country - we are talking about a muslim being appointed to represent a Christian nation. How many muslim nations have a Christian ambassador representing them in the UN?
