Editors Comment: The following article comes from The Trumpet.com and it is a must read for those trying to understand our current upside down world, where good is evil, sin is virtue, left is right and war is peace. It showcases a world seemingly gone mad, where confusion reigns, disguised as common sense.
To quote a small paragraph from the article: “We take the side of science [as opposed to the supernatural] in spite of the patent absurdity of some of its constructs, in spite of its failure to fulfill many of its extravagant promises of health and life, in spite of the tolerance of the scientific community for unsubstantiated just-so stories, because we have a prior commitment, a commitment to materialism. … Moreover, that materialism is absolute, for we cannot allow a Divine Foot in the door.”
Yes, anything at all, no matter how absurd will do if it does not acknowledge God. That is why we worship little green men, paganism, demented heroes, hostile religions, deviant sexuality, upside down authority, intellectualism, abortion, anti-disciplinary stands, socialism, radical environmentalism, political correctness, liberal doctrines and so on. It’s a mad, mad world….Read the article to be amazed.
The Upside Down World

Back in April, a street-corner preacher in Britain mentioned to a passing shopper that the Bible calls homosexuality a sin.
The comment got him thrown in jail.
An atheist homosexual policeman contended that since Dale McAlpine’s remark was loud enough to be overheard, he had broken the Public Order Act—a law passed in 1986 to control violent rioters and football hoodlums. Police carted McAlpine off, and he spent seven hours in a cell for causing “harassment, alarm or distress.”
It was quite the crackdown, considering what happened elsewhere on Britain’s streets at about the same time. After an Israeli official gave a lecture at the University of Manchester, she was attacked by pro-Palestinian protesters. Police responded to this provocation by escorting the official from the premises in a police car. The protesters climbed onto the hood of the vehicle and tried to break the windshield. They were not prosecuted. Apparently in Britain, this is “protected speech.” Welcome to the Upside-Down World. (more…)
