A young Texan grew up wanting to be a lawman. He grew up big, 6′ 2″, strong as a longhorn, and fast as a mustang. He could shoot a bottle cap tossed in the air at 40 paces.
When he finally came of age, he applied to where he had only dreamed of working: the West Texas Sheriff’s Department.
After a series of tests and interviews, the Chief Deputy finally called him into his office for the young man’s last interview.
The Chief Deputy said, “You’re a big strong kid and you can really shoot. So far your qualifications all look good, but we have, what you might call, an “Attitude Suitability Test”, that you must take before you can be accepted.
We don’t let just anyone carry our badge, son.”
Then, sliding a service pistol and a box of ammo across the desk, the Chief said, “Take this pistol and go out and shoot:
six illegal aliens,
six meth dealers,
six Muslim extremists,
and a rabbit.”
“Why the rabbit?” queried the applicant.
“You pass,” said the Chief Deputy.”When can you start?”
Too good not to share.
Via Bookworm The difference between Islam and other religions
Libby, a Bookworm Room friend, came up with one of the most accurate statements I’ve ever seen distinguishing Islam from other religions. I have to share it with you:
The difference between Islam and other religions is that while other religions inspire their followers to control themselves to avoid sin, the followers of Islam seek to control their environment to avoid sin.
Simply heartbreaking all the way around. No good can come of abortion, for anyone, and no good has. Killing a child is not “healthcare.”

We’ve heard for years the asinine claim that Republicans and conservatives have been leading a “war on women” … or a “war on women’s rights”. Pro-abortion folks as well as liberals have the propensity to deflect or misdirect attention from abortion, always referring to “women’s health” or “women’s reproductive rights” or “women’s right to choose”. None of those terms apply to abortion. In truth the pro-abortion crowd and liberals have been waging a genuine war on women and a war on children. With each abortion a death takes place. The pro-abortion crowd vehemently resist educating women so they can make an informed decision when considering having an abortion. Even when abortion on demand became legal 41 years ago, that wasn’t good enough for the purveyors of death. They demand others to pay for their “choices”.
Let’s see, does a woman have a choice as to whether or not to participate in the…

Last year, the bakery’s owners refused to make a wedding cake for Rachel Cryer and Laurel Bowman, of Portland, citing their Christian beliefs. The couple then filed a complaint with the state.
To which I say, this is insane. Even a prostitute gets to choose which customers to service. No one sues them for “discrimination.”
How many Islamic businesses have been sued on homosexual discrimination grounds?
No shoes, no shirt, no service – what about that kind of “discrimination,” are shoeless/shirtless people going to start suing businesses now?
A business is allowed to have standards, and has the right to refuse service to anyone, for any reason.
Gay people have the right, and the freedom, to go to any other store they want and buy the item or service they want. There is no law saying they don’t have those rights, therefore there are no civil rights violations against them.
There is no “right” to force a business or person to service you against their will.
These lawsuits are strawmen, designed to target Christians, and nothing more.
Would a man go into a ladies shoe store and demand men’s shoes?
Would a middle aged woman go into a baby store and demand make-up?
Are we going to start suing every business for not carrying every item for every single one of us?
“I’m sorry, we don’t have same sex themed wedding cakes here, but such and such store across the street does, would you like me to call them for you?”
That is not discrimination, and no one’s “rights” have been violated.
Besides, getting the themed cake of your choice is not a right. It’s a luxury.
