    The JBS

    While I agree with nearly all the points of interest and positions of the John Burch Society, they are but a small voice any more and in my opinion, virtually ineffective.

    The JBS has a negative image from it's early days that to me, has never been overcome. The JBS became an extension of the Joseph McCarthy anti-communist campaigns and I think their start under that banner did them much more harm than good. Until they overcome that negative image, and become more effective, I feel my $$$ would be put to better use elsewhere.

    I agree with their position on the NAU but, also feel the anti-NAU campaign would be better served through a newer organization.

    I was a member in the early 1960's. Seemed a waste of time.

    I chose "Other Answer" because not being an American, I would not be elligible to join, whether or not I wanted to.

    My parents were members. Thank God for conservative parents. I could have been born a liberal. BTW, why is this in the current events thread? Are they in the news?

    I would consider it, but honestly doubt it.

    10"Two men went up to the temple to pray, one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector. 11The Pharisee stood up and prayed about[a] himself: 'God, I thank you that I am not like other men—robbers, evildoers, adulterers—or even like this tax collector. 12I fast twice a week and give a tenth of all I get.'
    13"But the tax collector stood at a distance. He would not even look up to heaven, but beat his breast and said, 'God, have mercy on me, a sinner.'

    14"I tell you that this man, rather than the other, went home justified before God. For everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted."
    Luke 18:10-14 NIV

    I was a chapter leader here in Palatka during the mid 70's and still subscrib to the New American Mag for their take on current political activities. I do not have the time for such things these days.

    Back in the 1970s when I moved into our new home, someone gave my mother a brochure from the John Birch Society. I read it and asked, "Mom, is the John Birch Society some kind of cult?" She thought so.:smilewinkgrin:

    So according to you twisted theology, left-handed people are fools, while right-handed people are wise.

    This kind of ignorance makes you sound more like Rush ever day. :laugh:

    No one is born liberal or conservative.
