Have you seen any of religion channels since Israel/Lebanon war? My God, these people are almost foaming at the mouth quoting that insane book of the Bible, "Revelations".  I just want to tell these people, "Oh, just STOP IT!!" These people have been fighting for eons and predicting the end of the world. Just STOP IT!!!"


Thanks for calling---I feel the same way!

Kyra Philips Both Scared AND Fascinated by the Apocalypse!




PHILLIPS: Joel, do I need to start taking care of unfinished business, and -- and telling people that I love them, and I'm sorry for all the evil things that I have done?

Well, I think that would be a good start.

I mean, Jesus loves the people of the Middle East. Matthew 15, Jesus was in southern Lebanon. Why? Telling the people of Lebanon that he loved them, that God loved them.

What's interesting is, I was just at the Iraqi prime minister's speech today. You know, the Bible talks, in Jewish theology and Christian, that Iraq will be reborn as a country and be phenomenally peaceful and prosperous. And then a huge dictator, known as the Antichrist, will arrive.

Watching the speech today in the House of Representatives, the first speech by an Iraqi prime minister to a joint session of Congress, bit by bit, we are watching revelation and the other prophecies get closer and closer to fulfillment.

Joel Rosenberg and Jerry Jenkins, you both scare me, but you both fascinate me.

George W. Bush - Harken CEO 1983-1990


In 1990, Bush sold his remaining stock options and left the oil business. Writer Jack Colhoun revealed some details of that stock sale, referring to Bush by his childhood nickname “Junior”:

On June 22, 1990, George Jr. sold two-thirds of his Harken stock for $848,560-a cool 200 percent profit. The move was well timed. One week after Junior sold his stock, Harken announced a $23.2 million loss in quarterly earnings and Harken stock dropped sharply, losing 60 percent of its value over the next six months. On August 2, 1990, Iraqi troops moved into Kuwait and 541,000 U.S. forces were deployed to the Gulf. -- Famous Texans
