The "Unsurprise": Obama rejects Canadian pipeline

The White House is rejecting the Keystone XL pipeline, saying that Republicans forced him into this decision.  This is what the president wanted to do all along, but he now is trying to say that Congress is rushing it and not allowing adequate review.  I'm under the impression that the State Department has been reviewing this for the past 3 years - how much time does he need?!  

Our president is a spineless wonder who refuses to take responsibility for anything.  Not that this is a surprise; every decision this man makes is politically and ideologically driven. This pipeline would be good for our economy, would provide jobs and make us less dependent on hostile countries for our oil. It's a no-brainer and Obama is either dumb as a box of rocks or he's deliberately trying to hurt our country. God help us if he's re-elected.

Major League Cynicism

American Atheists are seriously ticked off at Tim Tebow. Why?  Tebow's overt Christianity really rankles these atheists, but it's no skin off their noses.  

They're accusing him of doing it for publicity and personal gain.  They seem unable to grasp the idea that for religious people, faith is not something that's taken out of the closet on Sunday and then put back in for the rest of the week. It's something that should inform and shape daily life. Because they are so empty spiritually, atheists probably can't understand the concept of being aware of God in your everyday life and being thankful for the blessings we have. 

Lacking this spiritual foundation, American Atheists naturally assume that Tebow's displays of devotion are self-serving. How cynical and sad. I almost feel sorry for this group of in-your-face atheists because they will never know the true peace that comes from a close relationship with God.
