Self explanatory title. I abhor that nicey nicey, politically correct, pseudo-Christianity which almost always supports leftwing attitudes - which in most cases are profoundly anti-Gospel. This Blog supports persecuted Christians. This Blog exposes cults. This Blog opposes junk science. UPDATED DAILY. This is not a forum. It is hardhitting and unashamedly evangelical so if it offends - please do not come to this site!

Socialism - Test Two.
Socialism test 2
From an email published on the Climatesceptics Yahoo Group 9 February
2011, by Gary Sharp.
For Conservative read Tory or Republican, (right wing & capitalist).
For Liberal read Democrat or Labour or LibDem, or Green, (left wing &
A young woman was about to finish her first year of college. Like so many
others her age, she considered herself to be very Liberal, and among other
liberal ideals was very much in favour of higher taxes to support more
government programs, in other words redistribution of wealth.
She was deeply ashamed that her father was a rather staunch Conservative,
a feeling she openly expressed. Based on the lectures that she had participated
in, and the occasional chat with a professor, she felt that her father had for
years harboured an evil, selfish desire to hoard wealth.
One day she was challenging her father on his opposition to higher taxes
on the rich and the need for more government programs.
The self-professed objectivity proclaimed by her professors had to be the
truth and she indicated so to her father. He responded by asking how she was
doing in college.
Taken aback, she answered rather haughtily that she had a Grade Point
Average of 4.0, and let him know that it was tough to maintain, insisting that
she was taking a very difficult course load and was constantly studying, which
left her no time to go out and party like other people she knew. She didn’t even
have time for a boyfriend, and didn’t really have many college friends because
she spent all her time studying.
Her father listened and then asked: “How is your friend Audrey
She replied: “Audrey is barely getting by. All she takes are easy
classes, she never studies and she barely has a GPA of 2.0. She is so popular on
campus; college for her is a blast. She’s always invited to all the parties and
lots of times she doesn’t even show up for classes because she’s too hung
Her wise father asked his daughter: “Why don’t you go to the Dean’s
office and ask him to deduct 1.0 off your GPA and give it to your friend who
only has a 2.0. That way you will both have a 3.0 GPA and certainly that would
be a fair and equal distribution of GPA.”
The daughter, visibly shocked by her father’s suggestion, angrily fired
back: “That’s a crazy idea, how would that be fair! I’ve worked really hard for
my grades! I’ve invested a lot of time and a lot of hard work! Audrey has done
next to nothing toward her degree. She played while I worked my tail
The father slowly smiled, winked and said gently: “Welcome to the
Conservative side of the fence.”
If anyone has a better explanation of the difference
between Conservative and Liberal I’m all ears.
