Here's the main website for PATH, Positive Alternatives to Homosexuality.
For Christians struggling with this issue, this is a worthwhile site.
Limbaughs Fans Remain Loyal
No surprise, really.
Rush has one of the largest, and most loyal fan bases in history.
A Democrat Endorsement for George W.

Okay, okay. It's Zel Miller, who is Democrat only because he's always been a Democrat. But his reasons ring very true. Good article.

The Final Victory: Malaysian Prime Minister Doing His Best Impersonation of Hitler
So, here is the Prime Minister of a major Asian nation getting a standing ovation for his anti semitic speech, and what does most American Media cover?
Kobe Bryant and semen stained panties, and an attack on an Evangelical Christian General. What does this tell you about media bias?
Oh wait. I take that back.
The LA Times did mention the Malaysian Prime Minister's bigotry. By comparing him and General Boykin!
What a staggering outrage.
Having fun on a dull night in the ER.
One of the past times in Emergency Rooms and on Psych units across the country is betting on BALs, Blood Alcohol Levels.
This has to be a record, except possibly in Wisconsin.

Despite The News Hour's report, The Rush Limbaugh show is NOT on Hiatus. Rush is, but not the show.
Ah, the Media, again.
Mark Steyn does a great job looking at the media spin of the California Recall vote.
Here's a taste:

You gotta admire the way the media stayed on the Demo-crats' sinking California ship right to the very end. On the CNN Web site, even after Gray Davis had conceded, they were sticking to the loser's talking-points:

''Schwarzenegger, who, like Hitler, is a native of Austria . . .''

CNN? Oh, that's that network with Larry King, who, like the Son of Sam, is a native of Brooklyn. Used to be owned by Ted Turner, who, like the Cincinnati Strangler, is a native of Cincinnati. Now part of Time Warner, founded by the Warner Brothers, the oldest of whom, Harry Warner, like many Auschwitz guards, was a native of Poland.

Oh, and the truth?
Here it is, same article:
Just in case any Democrats have come back down to Planet Earth, here's what happened on Tuesday: The two Republican candidates -- Schwarzenegger and Tom McClintock -- pulled 62 percent of the vote between them; the Democrat, Cruz Bustamante, got 31.7 percent. The remaining 6 percent was divided among the other 132 candidates. Just to recap: Republicans 62 percent, Democrats 31.7 percent -- in the most liberal state in the nation. As long as all those angry voters keep expressing their anger by voting for Republicans over Democrats by two to one, I think I can live with it.

Rush and Drugs
The first major hit piece is out on Rush Limbaugh, from Newsweek.
Here's a taste:

But Limbaugh’s story owes more to the “Wizard of Oz” than “The Scarlet Letter.” The man behind the curtain is not the God of Family Values but a childless, twice-divorced, thrice-married schlub whose idea of a good time is to lie on his couch and watch football endlessly. When Rush Limbaugh declared to his radio audience that he was “your epitome of morality of virtue, a man you could totally trust with your wife, your daughter, and even your son in a Motel 6 overnight,” he was acting.

Well, here we go.
I'm a Christian.
Been one for years.
Have been proud of it.
Still am proud of it.
Despite Jimmy Swaggart.
Despite Jim Baker
Those core values haven't changed just because a media preacher falls.

I'm a conservative.
Been one for years.
Have been proud of it.
Still am.
Despite Bill Bennett
And yes, despite Rush Limbaugh.
Those core values don't change just because a media voice falls.

I'm deeply concerned about Rush and his drug problem.
If Oxycontin is what he is addicted to, he has a hard, hard road ahead of him.
It's a road he'll be on for a lot longer than thirty days.
More like thirty years.
I know.
I've been doing substance abuse counseling for a long time.
I've been hearing the stories for years.
And they are similar to what I've heard so far about Rush.
Chronic, excruciating pain from a back injury.
Flexeril (Cyclobenzeprine) doesn't cut it.
So the doctor prescribes Vicoden, or Oxycontin.
It works....for awhile.
Then the pain starts to break through, so you take more.
Then you take more, because when you quit, you go through withdrawals.
Wanna know about the withdrawal symptoms? Check Here

The addiction grows, until you are no longer in control.
It truly does control you.
Oh yeah, and the pain that started the addiction ball rolling?
Still there.
Still excruciating.
You've just added another kind of pain on top of it.
Rush has asked for prayers.
He's got 'em.
From this Conservative Christian, anyway.

Spider in the Basement.
Okay, here's the thing.
Spiders freak me out.
Phobia would not be too strong a word.
We have a Wolf Spider in our basement ceiling.
I'm the ony one who's seen it, and it took awhile to figure out what kind of spider it was.
Now I'm sure.
Until I find it, the blogs will be short and to the point.
We've named the spider Herman.
I suspect Hermanitta might be more appropriate however.
Gotta go.
Hermanitta wants to use the computer, and I aint gonna try to stop her.....
