Dear Sir, I am an English man living in Australia and a conservative voter in the UK.
I am very fortunate to be living in Australia one of the safest country’s in the world. As there are about 25 sooting’s per year in Australia we hear none of the bickering and comical arguments that I have been hearing and reading about in the American Nationalist media such as FoxNews. The same applies in the UK where gun crime is misrule. The one common denominator between the countries (UK And Australia) is that people can't own guns or purchase them at the local supermarket.
I found the comments about school prayer especially amusing if not a little disturbing. Do you really think that if people pray at school nothing bad will happen?
I have been investigating an agenda you may have? Are you somehow in debited to the NRA? Have the NRA promised to fund an election run? Do you have a fortune tied up in Smith & Western shares?
Being an English man I hold the American people in the highest regard as you have been there for the UK and the western world in their time of need consistently in the last one hundred years but these antiquated ideas permeating from certain websites and TV channels do nothing but harm the rest of the worlds view of America. People arguing that they need a gun just in case they need to defend themselves against the government is truly unbelievable. Maybe this ethos would be appropriate in Sera Leone but in America?
Maybe its time for the old guard to step aside and let some forward thinking agile minded people take the rains on making important decisions and move America in to the present. You guys are not living in the 1850’s any more and the need for guns in every day life is redundant.
People have the right to their beliefs but the church should have no place dictating anything to humanity in our schools or any public place apart from a church where people choose to attend? Maybe the church should spend more time atoning for its plethora of sins over the past 2000 years instead of trying to dictate any kind of agenda of the populace.
I have two ideas for reduction in gun violence.
1. For all the actors who bravely spoke out against guns, they should make a commitment to never act in a movie where a gun is used, or a gun is used by them. These actors can set the standard for solving problems with something other than a gun.
2. For every ticket sold in a movie where there is gun violence a $1.00 tax payable to a fund (not an additional cost to the ticket) should be paid by the promoters/producers of these movies or plays or games or television programs. From this a privately run non-profit organization will be established or supported to help identify and re-train the psychotics using guns as a solution to a problem(s) they perceive. (Ask.com says there are about 1.47 million viewers per year in the U.S.) If half of these contained gun violence that would calculate to $740k per year, I know it isn’t much but at least the money would be focused on the sick people among us. They are the ones that kill people not the guns.
Mike, It was my pleasure to meet you at Orlando Baptist Church a few weeks ago. At that time immediately prior to your delivering your message, i introduced my self to you and handed you my new book THE LAST PARALLEL. I didn't leave my contact info. but I would appreciate it very much if you would send me your professional objective opinion of the book. ThanksDon Hazen (firstname.lastname@example.org)
I happened to catch a bit of your Saturday night show where you spoke about Gerard Depardieu essentially defecting to Russia because if the taxation in France. I've never watched your show, but I was struck by the tone you took when speaking of the President's fiscal policies. It sounded as if you were trying to be biting and caustic when I don't see that to be your personality or mannerism at all. I would hope that you aren't speaking that way for ratings. I think you're known more for being a Christian than a Fox commentator. "What does it profit a man to gain the world and lose his soul?" I would leave that to the Bill O'Reilly's of Fox News.
Dear Governor Huckabee. I have a great idea for your show. A 13 yr old boy (Tyler Sutphin) in Palm Coast, FL with his dad organized a prayer vigil for victims of a plane crash in our neighborhood. Many came to it. I had a prophetic dream about this crash a few weeks prior. Several local news crews covered the event. It brought many of us together. WESH2 news in Orlando has some great coverage of the event. I encouraged folks to not live in fear. You feature many stories of faith and hope. I think this would be a good one for your show. Here is one link to a news storyhttp://www.wesh.com/news/central-florida/Vigil-held-for-plane-crash-victims/-/11788162/18031658/-/bkpfaez/-/index.htmlMay our Father and His Son bless you and your family greatly. Love your show!
