Occupy America!  Where Did You Go?
40 years ago, Americans began filling public squares & college grounds, perservering in non-violence while marching down streets where dogs & firehoses were set on them, regrouping after National Guardsmen began shooting them down, enduring mace & pepper spray & billy clubs, until we filled the streets of Washington DC & every major city & made our message heard. Deftly using modern media, this new generation of warriors for peace is only beginning to raise its voice. The 99% will not be ignored...

Evangelist John P. McTernan has written blog posts and promoted articles by others on everything from how vicious black gangs are mobbing stores and terrorizing people all over the country, to how former Obama advisor Steve Rattner admitted that "we need death panels" (actually an attention-getting first line to a op-ed in the NY Times which followed up with "Well, maybe not death panels, exactly, but unless we start allocating health care resources more prudently — rationing, by its proper name — the exploding cost of Medicare will swamp the federal budget," to how the "Hard Left" loves the "sin" of homosexuality because of California Governor Jerry Brown's ban on "gay cures" ("they want to prevent ministers from even talking to youths about it.")
Now he's blogged that Hurricane Sandy "is clear evidence of God’s wrath on America for tolerating President Barack Obama and homosexuals." He says Obama "a pro-abortion/homosexual, Muslim Brotherhood promoter, Hard Left Fascist."
He isn't any easier on Mitt, because "a Mormon and pro-homosexual. Yes, he is a big time pro-homosexual supporter to the point he will keep open homosexuality in the military; he wants homosexuals in the Boy Scouts; and he wants more open homosexuals in the Republican Party. I have reported on this blog Romney’s pro-homosexual positions as he made them."
McTernan has an inside scoop on God and government: in addition to an honorary doctorate in divinity, he was a US Treasury agent for 26 years.
