In the commentary page of our Steamboat Today newspaper on Dec.14, 2002, Paul Krugman and Bob Herbert of the New York Times News Service, write in an uncomplimentary way about Bob Jones University in Greenville, SC.
I, obviously, did not agree with their views as in 2003, we had a BJU Drama Team made up of student ministers in the church I pastor here in Hayden. Then, this year we had a BJU musical team minister in our church.
Now the same two writers give their views, which are against the U.S. invasion of Iraq on the commentary page of May 1. Again I find myself in disagreement with them.
I wonder if they had lived in Iraq for seven years under the dictatorship of Saddam before the U.S. invasion, if they would still have the same liberal views against the present U.S. government?
An interesting thing that has happened after the overthrow of the dictator is the established of an orthodox, fundamental, independent Baptist church in the country of Iraq. We read in the Bible, Psalm 33:12, "Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord..."
