The Kelly File… Debate Critique

by Bishop Council Nedd

On Monday I was asked if I would be willing to appear on The Kelly File with Megyn Kelly.  I was asked to be on the Friday night show which would be an election critique and recap featuring pundits and regular Americans. I usually hate appearing on any sort of panel discussion.  For evidence of that, one need look no further than my last appearance on Sean Hannity’s show (but we don’t talk about that anymore).

Megyn KellyHowever, doing the Kelly File was enjoyable.  It’s very seldom that I go on television and I feel like there actually is iron sharpening iron.  However, that’s exactly what happened.  It’s usually punditry and sound bites.  I don’t actually recall what was said on the air and what wasn’t, as Megyn encouraged all of us to stay engaged through the breaks and that’s exactly what happened.

She apologized to me for not getting to the issue of faith during our discussion, but I understood.  However, I do hope there are more conversations about the role and importance of faith as we get closer to the election, while attacks on Christianity increase.

It is an important topic.

There are organized individuals in the country that want to rip up every cross by its roots and throw it in a wood pile for burning, be they secularists, atheists or radical Islamists.  I would like to see this crucial matter given more consideration, not just in the political discourse, but in the hearts of everyone who considers themselves a Christian or a person of faith.  In fact, it’s not merely an important topic.  It’s a topic with grave implications.

This is the first story I saw, when I turned on my Computer this morning…

“ISIS kidnaps more Christians. When will we put an end to this madness?”

As the chairman of In God We Trust, I will continue to fight, not just for the right of Christians to exist in America, but to remind people that the bounty of America comes from our creator.

 

Bishop Council Nedd Introduces Sen. Rand Paul to Philadelphia

Following is Bishop Council Nedd’s Introduction of Presidential Candidate, Sen. Rand Paul

As many of you know, Ascension Day was just this past Thursday and Yesterday was Ascension Sunday. The apostles’ reactions immediately prior to the Ascension tell a significant story.  They illustrate with crystal clarity the stubbornness with which we subordinate God’s agenda to our own, and we do this without actually realizing it.  In the same way that there was a disconnect between what Christ said and what the Apostles heard… there is a similar disconnect between what our Founding Father intended and how we are interpreting it almost 250 years later.

Christ was focused on servant leadership… While those around him were interested merely in accumulating power.

Shortly you will hear from another great servant leader.

11168019_10154381801296959_5252885398440871796_nSenator Rand Paul has been a leader since arriving in Washington.  He is not a career politician.  He is a citizen legislator and surgeon who demonstrates servant leadership regularly when he uses his very little free time to perform free surgical procedures for those in need.

Our nation is at a crossroads.

Will we continue on the path to an ever bigger and more intrusive government?

Or…

…Will we make a U turn and finally begin to restore this nation?

We the people are endowed by our Creator with certain inalienable rights. However, that has been warped over the centuries. Governments have no rights.  People have rights.  Governments have responsibilities that are delegated to them by the people.

Rand Paul will fight to protect the constitution. He will fight to protect the American people. He’s not afraid to speak his mind and we’ll see that demonstrated in the next few days as Washington debates the Patriot Act.

The status quo is not tenable.  We have been fooling ourselves too long.  As was said right here in this very city in 1776.  What we are doing right now is a lot like calling an ox a bull.  He is thankful for the distinction, but would much rather have restored what is rightfully his.

Senator Paul can restore this nation to some semblance of what our founders intended, and to what God has blessed for so long.
