End Times Speed Links - Will "Mount Obama" Soon Be Showing Up On Our Maps?

Mount Obama?

*Whoa! Antigua's prime minister wants to rename that island's highest mountain peak "Mount Obama" in honor of Barack Obama. Shouldn't they wait until he actually does something first?

Goodbye Retirement?

*That didn't take long - Democrats in the U.S. House of Representatives are conducting hearings on proposals to confiscate workers’ personal retirement accounts — including 401(k)s and IRAs — and convert them to accounts managed by the government. Can they do that?

Bird Flu News

*Scientists have discovered that the bird flu virus "hides" from the immune system. Are you ready for the coming pandemic?

Troubling News

*The Treasury Department has announced that it will teach "Islamic finance" to U.S. banking regulatory agencies. What kind of insanity is this?

*Christians and churches are receiving serious threats since same sex marriage bans were passed during the last election. America has changed that is for sure.

Moral Decline

*Are millions of Americans addicted to the internet? Is that an obvious question or what?

*Women in the Netherlands who are deemed by the state to be unfit mothers will be sentenced to take contraception for a period of two years, according to a new draft bill before the Dutch parliament.

*"The first thing I'd do as president is sign the Freedom of Choice Act. That's the first thing that I'd do." -- Senator Barack Obama, speaking to the Planned Parenthood Action Fund, July 17, 2007

*Japanese scientists have cloned mice whose bodies were frozen for as long 16 years and have said that it may be possible to use the technique to "resurrect" mammoths and other extinct species. It seems as though scientists come up with a new abomination almost every day now.

*A new study has revealed that pregnancy rates are much higher among teenagers who watch a lot of television with sexual dialogue and behavior than among those who don't. Of course anyone with common sense could have figured that out as well.

The U.K. Wants To Make Use Of Old Churches

*Lastly, the U.K.'s culture secretary says that they should turn old churches into gyms, cafes and multi-faith centers. What a wonderful modern world, eh?
