Conservatives overwhelmingly agree that it is time "to get the U.S. to out of the United Nations", according to a poll conducted by The Conservative Caucus Foundation (TCCF).

Withdrawal from the U.N. had the support of 95.2% of the respondents, while only 2.1% favored staying in and 2.7% were undecided.

TCCF President Howard Phillips, when releasing the poll, pointed out that President Bush acknowledged the danger posed by the U.N. when he expressed concern over its International Criminal Court, Kyoto, Landmine, and Test Ban treaties. Later, Bush correctly declared that decisions on national security are not subject to the control of the UN Security Council.

However, the President has failed to recognize that the UN's actions show its fundamental hostility toward the independence and liberty of the United States.

The United Nations poll was conducted by mail from throughout 2005, and included about 1,500 responses.

The Conservative Caucus Foundation, founded in 1976, has published studies on many foreign policy and defense issues, including China policy, the Panama Canal, the START treaties, and SDI.

The Nomination of Harriet Miers

Paul Deignan at Info Theory is surveying blogger positions on the Miers nomination.

Here is my reponse:

I am currently opposed to the nomination of Harriet Miers to the U.S. Supreme Court. Her positions regarding the right to life and Roe v. Wade are unclear.

Howard Phillips summarizes other reasons for concern with which I agree, and other sources have corroborated his summary: "Among the matters we considered were her reported support for (1) the International Criminal Court (ICC), (2) homosexuals in the U.S. military, (3) homosexual adoption, (4) women in combat, (5) the "No Child Left Behind Act" ( ) .

I would love to see some concrete information about her record and positions on all of these issues that would show that they are different from those stated above. Her record seems to contradict President Bush's statements about her being a "strict constructionist." Therefore, she should not be confirmed.

Pray for the U. S. Senate, President Bush, and these United States of America.

LifeChain 2005

The Life Chain has become an important event to speak on behalf of innocent lives in danger of death. Pro-lifers literally go to the streets to demonstrate their concern to passersby, often in the form of holding a sign with simple statements such as "Abortion Kills Children." Christians encourage this as a time of prayer for the protection of anyone threatened by abortion.

Covenant News has provided several good synopses of coverage of Life Chain across the country. I am echoing the headlines here:

"Superior Reasoning Power"

Today I discovered Dr. William Dembski's weblog.

On October 1, 2005, Dr. Dembski quoted columnist Mary Ellen Symon's response to a universal negative assertion that "anyone who considers ID `is not a scientist.'":
I let it lie there. But something I once read, written by a man who was not a Christian, came to mind: “My religion consists of a humble admiration of the illimitable superior spirit who reveals himself in the slight details we are able to perceive with our frail and feeble minds.

“That deeply emotional conviction of a presence of a superior reasoning power, which is revealed in the incomprehensible universe, forms my idea of God.”

That was Albert Einstein. Not a scientist?
