Al Gore Runs Headlong Into A Brick Wall Of Integrity


This made me laugh:

A WEATHER expert has backed the stance of an Alice Springs filmmaker who refused to sell footage of a firestorm to former US vice-president Al Gore — to use in Mr Gore’s climate presentations — because the event was unrelated to climate change.

Chris Tangey from Alice Springs Film and Television recorded the phenomenon on Curtin Springs Station, 360km southwest of Alice Springs, while scouting locations for a film.

The footage has been an international sensation, reported widely in global media.

In an email exchange with Mr Gore’s office, Tangey said using the footage in a climate-change framework would be “deliberately deceptive”.

“I am aware that you may have missed the reporting on the very localised nature of this firestorm,” Tangey wrote. “However, in any case, I am confused as to why you would offer to buy a licence to use it at all unless you had conducted even elementary research which might indicate that this Mt Conner event had direct linkage to global warming/climate change.”

This is what is called “integrity,” something sorely lacking among the global warming alarmists.

    Yeah, but it would have been such a great visual – you know, the planet has a fever and whatnot. Too bad the Goracle never learned that cheaters never prosper.

      A great visual – like polar bears trapped on an ice berg…

    Time for Christians to find that kind of integrety..

    Christian companies can’t bow to sinful mandate

    By David Green

    When my family and I started our company 40 years ago, we were working out
    Of a garage on a $600 bank loan, assembling miniature picture frames. Our
    First retail store wasn’t much bigger than most people’s living rooms, but
    We had faith that we would succeed if we lived and worked according to God’s
    Word. From there, Hobby Lobby has become one of the nation’s largest arts
    And crafts retailers, with more than 500 locations in 41 states. Our
    Children grew up into fine business leaders, and today we run Hobby Lobby
    Together, as a family.

    We’re Christians, and we run our business on Christian principles.
    I’ve always said that the first two goals of our business are (1) to run our
    Business in harmony with God’s laws, and (2) to focus on people more than
    Money. And that’s what we’ve tried to do. We close early so our employees
    Can see their families at night. We keep our stores closed on Sundays, one
    Of the week’s biggest shopping days, so that our workers and their families
    Can enjoy a day of rest. We believe that it is by God’s grace that Hobby
    Lobby has endured, and he has blessed us and our employees. We’ve not only
    Added jobs in a weak economy, we’ve raised wages for the past four years in
    A row. Our full-time employees start at 80% above minimum wage.

    But now, our government threatens to change all of that. A new government
    Healthcare mandate says that our family business must provide what I believe
    Are abortion-causing drugs as part of our health insurance. Being
    Christians, we don’t pay for drugs that might cause abortions. Which means
    That we don’t cover emergency contraception, the morning-after pill or the
    Week-after pill. We believe doing so might end a life after the moment of
    Conception, something that is contrary to our most important beliefs. It
    Goes against the Biblical principles on which we have run this company since
    Day one. If we refuse to comply, we could face $1.3 million per day in
    Government fines.

    Our government threatens to fine job creators in a bad economy. Our
    Government threatens to fine a company that’s raised wages four years
    Running. Our government threatens to fine a family for running its business
    According to its beliefs. It’s not right.

    I know people will say we ought to follow the rules; that it’s the same for
    Everybody. But that’s not true. The government has exempted thousands of
    Companies from this mandate, for reasons of convenience or cost. But it
    Won’t exempt them for reasons of religious belief. So, Hobby Lobby – and my
    Family – are forced to make a choice. With great reluctance, we filed a
    Lawsuit today, represented by the Becket Fund for Religious Liberty, asking
    A federal court to stop this mandate before it hurts our business. We don’t
    Like to go running into court, but we no longer have a choice. We believe
    People are more important than the bottom line and that honoring God is more
    Important than turning a profit.

    My family has lived the American dream. We want to continue growing our
    Company and providing great jobs for thousands of employees, but the
    Government is going to make that much more difficult. The government is
    Forcing us to choose between following our faith and following the law. I
    Say that’s a choice no American – and no American business – should have to

    The government cannot force you to follow laws that go against your Fundamental religious beliefs

    They have exempted thousands of companies (friends of Obama) but will not exempt Christian organizations including the Catholic church.

    Just remember this in November!

    Since you will not see this covered in any of the liberal media, pass this on

    • WOOF

      David Green is not being forced to do anything. David Green wants to impose his vision of Christianity on people who work for Hobby Lobby Stores . David Green should mind his own business, not impose his beliefs on others medical decisions.

        Do you “honestly” believe the garbage ya just wrote woof?
        The “owner” has no rights as the government forces compliance.
        Communist asshat…
