Boycotting the Boycott

South Dakota Politics has a quick post on the fizzled pro-abortion boycott of South Dakota. A Black Hills tourist played the "license plate game" and saw 45 states represented.

Leftist Mexican to Sue to Overturn Democracy

From AP:

The ruling party's Felipe Calderon won the official count in Mexico's disputed presidential race Thursday, a come-from-behind victory for the stiff technocrat. But his leftist rival refused to concede and said he'd fight the results in court.

Looks like Leftists are the same all around the world--if they can't get what they want democratically, they'll take it to the courts in the hopes some tyrant in a black robe will tell them it's Christmas--excuse me, Winter Solstice.

Two State Courts Rule Against Homosexual "Marriage"

Could there be some sanity returning to the courts in this country? Both New York and Georgia's supreme courts ruled against homosexual "marriage." The Georgia case was the most egregious example of judicial activism by a lower court which ruled that the overwhelmingly passed constitutional amendment to the state constitution was unconstitutional.

I wouldn't hold my breath on a sanity streak from the judiciary, but it certainly refreshing to see a couple of decent rulings for a change.

Adelstein may run as Democrat?

The Rapid City Weekly News is reporting that Stan Adelstein, who recently lost the Republican Dist. 32 race for state senate, may run openly as a Democrat in the general election.

he is now considering switching parties and running in the Nov. 7 general election as a Democrat. For that to happen, Tom Katus, the Democratic nominee for state Senate District 32, would have to step aside.

To me, this says Adelstein is either:

(a) addicted to power

(b) bent on revenge

(c) so affected by (a) and/or (b) that he's finally willing to come out and run openly as a Leftist (Rapid City area folks may recall he tried to pass himself off as "pro-life" in the recent primary :-)).

If nothing else, I'm always glad to see it when people finally operate under their true colors. People--especially voters--should know what they're getting.

Pro-Abort Boycott of SD Fizzles

From the Rapid City Journal today:

When the state Legislature overwhelmingly approved HB1215 in February, the Women’s Medical Fund, an abortion-rights organization based in Madison, Wis., urged its supporters to avoid South Dakota during their summer travel.

“When the thing was still fresh and in the headlines, there was some e-mail traffic on it,” Honerkamp said. “Most of it was pretty radical stuff, even bizarre — hate e-mails, almost — saying that they were coming to South Dakota, but now, we could forget that.”

Tourism in the region was up 2 percent to 4 percent in April and May, Honerkamp said. That trend continued until mid-June, when travel slipped for about 10 days, he said.

“We had a stall there, and I don’t know what caused it,” he said. “We probably won’t recover that. But it’s picked up again since that dip.”

I thought 1215 was supposed to be the end of life as we know it in South Dakota? Er, no, the lack of 1215 means the end of lives in South Dakota.

The Left is Still Lost on Christianity

Sam Hurst continues to demonstrate in the Rapid City Journal that when it comes to Christianity, he was still in bed when the train left the station.

I think there are two reasons why modern Christians fled in panic from the Old Testament. The scientific revolution made all the miracles and timelines and genealogies of the Old Testament seem ridiculous. How can anyone believe a religion based on the calculation that the earth is 6,000 years old? And in the context of modern life, the "Holiness Code," those strict behavioral standards that God laid out for Moses as law for the Jewish nation, seem just plain barbaric when taken out of their narrow historical context and applied universally. For church leaders with a missionary zeal, the Old Testament is a terrifying text on which to build a universal church.

Fortunately, there were a couple of letters to the editor in today's edition that somehow managed to address Sam's misguided theology, even without intending to:

But Sam Hurst has no idea what scripture says at all; he's just another of the pretend Christians who pull certain verses out to benefit their own greed in furthering a kingdom of failure.

And from Joel Schwiesow, husband of Elli Schwiesow who won the Dist. 32 Republican state senate primary:

The Old Testament gave us the law (to show us we can not live up to it) while the New Testament brought us freedom, not from the law, but from the penalty of death.Once there was a concept of right and wrong, there were moral absolutes. Values were not relative but had a basis in an external truth. It might surprise Sam to know that there are also secularists, atheists and agnostics who recognize truth and oppose abortion

It's good that Sam Hurst will even talk about Christianity; most on the Left are so terrified that someone might think they're a Bible-thumper, they won't even speak of Him in their homes. But at the same time, God judges harshly those who are in a position to teach--and by virtue of his media presence, Sam teaches.

Sam really should go back and study the Book so he can correct some of the error he's been teaching.
