Mississippi lawmakers this week said they want to designate the Bible as the state book. At least two bills are being filed during this state election year to make the holy book a state symbol. Rep. Miles told The Associated Press on Monday he's not trying to force religion — or even reading — on anyone. "The Bible provides a good role model on how to treat people," Miles said. "They could read in there about love and compassion…
In 2014, Republican Gov. Phil Bryant signed a law that adds "In God We Trust" to the state seal. Legislators also begin each workday with a prayer over the microphone at the front of the House and Senate chambers, frequently with references to Jesus. It's unlikely the proposal will generate much opposition in the Legislature this election year…" because the people of Mississippi respect and honor the Word of God. They are wise to do so even though the Associated Press and other mainstream media mock and demean them for doing so. It is a wise and perceptive people who honor the Word of God and seek to conform their own lives and the life of the community to the Word of God.
Following God's instruction book is always the wisest path in life, for this book is the book of life. You would be correct to understand that it is the owner's manual given to us by our Creator. Do you want to know how to live the right way, the way you were designed by your manufacturer? Here is the owner's manual that if you follow it will yield the blessings our Creator has prepared for us.
The founders of our land understood this as they undertook the task of creating a civil government that would enjoy the blessings of liberty.
Consider what the 2nd President of the United States, Signer of the Declaration of Independence, Member of the Continental Congress, Ambassador to France, First Ambassador to Great Britain John Adams wrote in his personal journal 2/22/1756. "Suppose a nation in some distant region should take the Bible for their only law book, and every member should regulate his conduct by the precepts there exhibited! Every member would be obliged in conscience, to temperance, frugality, and industry; to justice, kindness, and charity towards his fellow men; and to piety, love and reverence toward Almighty God...What a Eutopia, what a Paradise would this region be."
In contrast to that understanding is the attitude today. Nowadays many assert that the Word of God, if everyone obeyed it, would only bring sadness, misery and repression, not a blessing but a curse. Who has it right, our founders or the media, academia, and elite of our day?
I believe among the commandments of God the most rejected commandment of the Ten in our day is the Seventh Commandment, "Thou shalt not commit adultery." The lie that has been sold to our society is that obeying the Seventh is not in our best self-interest, but that to obey it is repressive, damaging and downright unhealthy.
Well let's look at what God's Word states in Proverbs 6. "My son, keep thy father's commandment, and forsake not the law of thy mother: Bind them continually upon thine heart, and tie them about thy neck. When thou goest, it shall lead thee; when thou sleepest, it shall keep thee; and when thou awakest, it shall talk with thee. For the commandment is a lamp; and the law is light; and reproofs of instruction are the way of life: To keep thee from the evil woman, from the flattery of the tongue of a strange woman. Lust not after her beauty in thine heart; neither let her take thee with her eyelids. For by means of a whorish woman a man is brought to a piece of bread: and the adulteress will hunt for the precious life. Can a man take fire in his bosom, and his clothes not be burned? Can one go upon hot coals, and his feet not be burned? So he that goeth in to his neighbour's wife; whosoever toucheth her shall not be innocent. Men do not despise a thief, if he steal to satisfy his soul when he is hungry; But if he be found, he shall restore sevenfold; he shall give all the substance of his house. But whoso committeth adultery with a woman lacketh understanding: he that doeth it destroyeth his own soul."
Where do you stand on this issue? Who will you serve? The world, which says, "if it feels good do it" or will you be faithful and serve the Lord and abide in His Word? "…As for me and my house, we will serve the LORD."

Sheikh Muhammad Munajid, claimed the mouse is “one of Satan’s soldiers” and makes everything it touches impure, The Telegraph reports.  But he warned that like all devilish creatures depictions of the creature in cartoons such as Tom and Jerry, and Disney’s Mickey Mouse, had taught children that it was in fact loveable.   The cleric, a former diplomat at the Saudi embassy in Washington DC, said that under Sharia, both household mice and their cartoon counterparts must be killed.
Sheikh Muhammad Munajid, claimed the mouse is “one of Satan’s soldiers” and makes everything it touches impure, The Telegraph reports.  But he warned that like all devilish creatures depictions of the creature in cartoons such as Tom and Jerry, and Disney’s Mickey Mouse, had taught children that it was in fact loveable.   The cleric, a former diplomat at the Saudi embassy in Washington DC, said that under Sharia, both household mice and their cartoon counterparts must be killed. Mr Munajid was asked to give Islam’s teaching on mice during a religious affairs programme broadcast on al-Majd TV, an Arab television network. According to a translation prepared by the Middle East Media Research Institute, an American press monitoring service, he said: “The mouse is one of Satan’s soldiers and is steered by him. “If a mouse falls into a pot of food – if the food is solid, you should chuck out the mouse and the food touching it, and if it is liquid – you should chuck out the whole thing, because the mouse is impure. “According to Islamic law, the mouse is a repulsive, corrupting creature. How do you think children view mice today – after Tom and Jerry?   “Even creatures that are repulsive by nature, by logic, and according to Islamic law have become wonderful and are loved by children. Even mice.  Following is an excerpt from a religious program featuring Saudi Cleric Muhammad Al-Munajid, which aired on Al-Majd TV on August 27, 2008:
Muhammad Al-Munajid: What is the position of Islamic law with regard to mice? The Shari’a refers to the mouse as “little corrupter,” and says it is permissible to kill it in all cases. It says that mice set fire to the house, and are steered by Satan. The mouse is one of Satan’s soldiers and is steered by him. If a mouse falls into a pot of food – if the food is solid, you should chuck out the mouse and the food touching it, and if it is liquid – you should chuck out the whole thing. Because the mouse is i-m-p-u-r-e! 
According to Islamic law, the mouse is a repulsive, corrupting creature. How do you think children view mice today – after Tom and Jerry? Even creatures that are repulsive by nature, by logic, and according to Islamic law have become wonderful and are loved by children. Even mice. Mickey Mouse has become an awesome character, even though according to Islamic law, Mickey Mouse should be killed in all cases.      
But this may be easier said than done. Mickey has survived countless attempts on his life since he first appeared in the cartoon Steamboat Willie in 1928 while Jerry has been fending off Tom’s murderous attacks since 1940.  Mr Munajid is also the imam who condemned the Beijing Olympics as the “bikini Olympics”, claiming that nothing made Satan happier than seeing females athletes dressed in skimpy outfits.     Mickey may have survived the battle with the brooms in “Fantasia,” but now Mickey Mouse has to contend with Islam. 
WATCH THE PUTZ:
A Saudi cleric has condemned Disney’s lovable cartoon mouse. What could the big-eared rodent possibly have done to offend?  
And from Morocco, Myrtus is lost for words and exclaims:
Gasp! Stupidity beyond belief!  
And on the outcry from Western media, Sultan Al Jumeri, from Saudi Arabia, writes:
There is nothing new about the Western media, and particularly the American media, is ridiculing our Islamic doctrines and our culture in general. There are scores of programmes, books and movies which prove this! They have been available everywhere for a long period of time! Their history in tarnishing is not something new .. but something which goes back in time. 
Jordanian Mohammed Badi has another take on the issue and writes:
Because all the issues and problems facing Muslims have been solved thanks to the Almighty, we are now left with chasing after mice. It seems that Spiderman and Batman and Tom (and Jerry as well) should all be arrested. 
Still in Jordan, The Black Iris notes:
Well, it should be pointed out that I think the brief second of hesitation towards the end suggested the he was aware Mickey is a cartoon and so was being somewhat satirical about the killing of him. Because really, how do you kill a cartoon? Stop drawing it? […] Anyways, the western media has had a field day (week) with this bit of news…  
Global Voices Online Morocco author Jillian York gives us her take on the issue here. She notes:
Some Saudi cleric is answering a question about mice; namely, whether or not they should be killed in the house. It’s a valid religious question that anyone might consider (including PETA), but the cleric goes perhaps a little too far and claims that the presence Tom & Jerry has softened kids to the evils of mice. 
After watching the video, she explains:
It’s pretty clear to me that when he says “according to Islamic Sharia, Mickey Mouse should be killed,” he’s saying it with a smirk on his face and a tongue in his cheek. And yet the American media got ahold of the video (which was put out by MEMRI) and all hell breaks loose. 
And after linking to the media outlash, she observes:
Suddenly the cleric’s words are being twisted to say that Mickey should die, that there’s a fatwa on Mickey, that Tom & Jerry are evil. Dude didn’t say that at all. What he said is that, according to Islam, mice are dirty and when found indoors should be killed. He only brought up Mickey to explain how children have become immune to mice because they see them as cute little cartoons rather than dirty, infected rodents. 
Give me a break, FOX and accomplices.

The new GOP majority in the U.S. Senate is turning up the heat on its investigation of allegations the Internal Revenue Service shared private taxpayer information with President Obama, demanding Obama turn over communications he and his staff had with the agency.
The Washington Times reported it obtained a copy of a letter signed by Senate Finance Committee Chairman Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, and the 13 other Republicans on the panel.
Addressed to Obama, the letter asks for his communications with the IRS since 2010 for their investigation into whether the agency has been engaging in illegal distribution of private taxpayer information. Republicans have accused the Obama administration of using the IRS as a political weapon since discovering the agency obstructed the applications for tax-exempt status of conservative organizations critical of Obama’s policies.
The letter said: “We have an obligation to conduct oversight of the federal government’s administration of our tax laws. As part of this oversight, we are seeking to determine the degree to and manner in which the Internal Revenue Service shares taxpayer information with the executive office of the president.”
IRS documents filed by the National Organization for Marriage, for example, were released to a citizen who asked for them, and they ended up in the hands of a homosexual activist who posted the confidential information online.
A judge ruled the IRS simply made a mistake, but the agency agreed to pay the group $50,000.
The documents requested by the Senate panel were also requested by the interest group Cause of Action, which has gone to court to try to compel the IRS inspector general to turn them over, the Times reported. The inspector general says it can’t turn over most of the 2,500 pages of records from its investigation because it would violate the privacy of taxpayers.
Texas-based True the Vote and 42 other groups have filed a lawsuit claiming the IRS targeted them based on their beliefs and politics.
Catherine Engelbrecht, founder of True the Vote, said the “notion that the IRS can target Americans for years because of their political beliefs is reprehensible.”
The IRS exacerbated the scandal by repeatedly telling disbelieving congressional investigators that it couldn’t provide relevant emails because of hard-drive failures.
U.S. District Judge Reggie Walton also ordered the agency to find out what happened to the hard drive after IRS Commissioner John Koskinen claimed a computer malfunction had caused the loss of two years of emails belonging to IRS executive Lois Lerner, whose tax-exempt division improperly targeted conservative groups.
Lerner claimed her emails were lost when her hard drive crashed July 13, 2011. She said the crash caused her to lose all her emails sent to recipients outside the IRS from mid-2009 to mid-2011.
David Ferriero, the archivist of the United States for the National Archives and Records Administration, testified the federal agency failed to follow the law in handling Lerner’s emails, raising even more suspicion about their content.
A key House leader addressing the issue, Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa, R-Calif., told IRS officials, at a minimum, “You did not tell the whole truth.
The committee accused the IRS of sending the FBI a database containing more than a million pages of confidential taxpayer information.
Officials later said the emails that had been “destroyed” were found, but they were unsorted and details were unavailable.
Robert Wood commented in Forbes: “First, there was no targeting by the IRS. Then there was, but only by those rogue IRS employees down in Cincinnati. … Then, top IRS official Lois Lerner refused to testify. IRS Commissioner Miller seemed defiant too and was sacked. Then, there was a year-long congressional investigation before the IRS finally admitted the 2009 through 2011 Lois Lerner’s emails ‘disappeared.’ Then, the backups … were recycled. Then, the new IRS commissioner said the IRS needs a bigger tech budget.”
Wood said American taxpayers, as well as thousands of dedicated IRS employees, deserve an explanation.
“The vast bulk of them are doing their best and helping not hurting the system. Their position is undermined by the awful bumbling and worse the IRS scandal … has revealed.”
Obama, meanwhile, insisted in an interview there’s “not even a smidgen of corruption” in the IRS.
