BLING! BLONG! BLING BLONG! BLING BLONG! BLING BLONG! BLING BLONG! - the nouveau "Khmer" riche Christmas chime
















Ben Stein's commentary read on CBS Sunday Morning

Apparently the White House referred to Christmas Trees as Holiday Trees for the first time this year, which prompted CBS presenter, Ben Stein, to present this piece which I would like to share with you.

The following was written by Ben Stein and recited by him on CBS Sunday Morning Commentary.

My confession:
I am a Jew, and every single one of my ancestors was Jewish. And it does not bother me even a little bit when people call those beautiful lit up, bejewelled trees, Christmas trees. I don't feel threatened. I don't feel discriminated against. That's what they are, Christmas trees.

It doesn't bother me a bit when people say, 'Merry Christmas' to me. I don't think they are slighting me or getting ready to put me in a ghetto. In fact, I kind of like it. It shows that we are all brothers and sisters celebrating this happy time of year. It doesn't bother me at all that there is a manger scene on display at a key intersection near my beach house in Malibu. If people want a nativity scene, it's just as fine with me as is the Menorah a few hundred yards away.

I don't like getting pushed around for being a Jew, and I don't think Christians like getting pushed around for being Christians. I think people who believe in God are sick and tired of getting pushed around, period. I have no idea where the concept came from, that America is an explicitly atheist country. I can't find it in the Constitution and I don't like it being shoved down my throat.

Or maybe I can put it another way: where did the idea come from that we should worship celebrities and we aren't allowed to worship God? I guess that's a sign that I'm getting old, too. But there are a lot of us who are wondering where these celebrities came from and where the America we knew went to.

In light of the many jokes we send to one another for a laugh, this is a little different: This is not intended to be a joke; it's not funny, it's intended to get you thinking.

Billy Graham's daughter was interviewed on the Early Show and Jane Clayson asked her 'How could God let something like this happen?' (regarding Hurricane Katrina). Anne Graham gave an extremely profound and insightful response. She said, 'I believe God is deeply saddened by this, just as we are, but for years we've been telling God to get out of our schools, to get out of our government and to get out of our lives.And being the gentleman He is, I believe He has calmly backed out. How can we expect God to give us His blessing and His protection if we demand He leave us alone?'

In light of recent events... terrorist attacks, school shootings, etc. I think it started when Madeleine Murray O'Hare (she was murdered, her body found a few years ago) complained she didn't want prayer in our schools, and we said OK. Then someone said you better not read the Bible in school. The Bible says thou shalt not kill; thou shalt not steal, and love your neighbor as yourself. And we said OK.

Then Dr. Benjamin Spock said we shouldn't spank our children when they misbehave, because their little personalities would be warped and we might damage their self-esteem (Dr. Spock's son committed suicide). We said an expert should know what he's talking about. And we said okay.

Now we're asking ourselves why our children have no conscience, why they don't know right from wrong, and why it doesn't bother them to kill strangers, their classmates, and themselves.

Probably, if we think about it long and hard enough, we can figure it out. I think it has a great deal to do with 'WE REAP WHAT WE SOW.'

Funny how simple it is for people to trash God and then wonder why the world's going to hell.
Funny how we believe what the newspapers say, but question what the Bible says. 

Funny how you can send 'jokes' through e-mail and they spread like wildfire, but when you start sending messages regarding the Lord, people think twice about sharing. 

Funny how lewd, crude, vulgar and obscene articles pass freely through cyberspace, but public discussion of God is suppressed in the school and workplace.

Are you laughing yet?

Funny how when you forward this message, you will not send it to many on your address list because you're not sure what they believe, or what they will think of you for sending it.

Funny how we can be more worried about what other people think of us than what God thinks of us.

Pass it on if you think it has merit.

If not, then just discard it.... no one will know you did. But, if you discard this thought process, don't sit back and complain about what a bad shape the world is in.

My Best Regards, Honestly and respectfully,

Ben Stein

Note:  Please do not misunderstand: this is not to pick on RFA or VOA; the intention is to raise the VERY SERIOUS issue of the need to develop and update the Khmer written language, by highlighting the fact, that if the two best Khmer news outlets are producing unclear, at times, incomprehensible writing, how much more lesser known media!  If we are at all concern about QUALITY education, then we need, we must update the written Khmer language with punctuation, like other modern developed languages.  - Theary C.

A World Safe for Diversity: Religion and Pluralism





HOW DO WE LIVE WITH OUR DEEP DIFFERENCES TO A NEW LEVEL? 

Are we to be content with little sound bites and limited character tweeting, or anonymous names on blogs issued in degrading speech? 

Or, are we to work out how we live in the public square globally in ways that do justice to our humanity and the greatness of our democratic past we may have?

Religious liberty is key to SOCIAL HARMONY.  

Harmony in China.  No big deal; yes, China has diversity with relative harmony – by COERCION.   

The real challenge is to have diversity WITH LIBERTY and still achieve harmony.  

US has done better than any other in history.   

How?  First Amendment: strong religious convictions and strong political civility.  

Other parts of the world has one or the other.  E.g. the West has strong civility; the Middle East strong religious convictions.

Former US Diplomat Accused in $1M Fraud Case











Os Guinness at Stanford University

Charter 77"Truth prevails for those who live in truth." 

Russian proverb"One word of truth outweighs the entire world."  

Jesus"...and the truth will set you free."

Truth is essential  for a good life, for freedom.

1.  Two companion crises to the crisis of truth: 

(i) crisis of CHARACTER (who a person is when no one sees except God), 

(ii) crisis of ETHICS

- Shirley Jackson's The Lottery
Today, it is worse to judge evil than to do evil, so confound is the ethical confusion
- Nietsche's will to power)

2.  Two arguments for those who believe in truth but have grown careless about it: 

"Without truth, there is only manipulation" (Picasso); 

"Without truth, there is no freedom" (Isaiah Berlin; "freedom from, freedom for")

3.  Two arguments for those skeptical about it, have no interest in it: 

Peter Burger"to relativize the relativizer"; they don't apply relativism to their position; there is clarity in consistency; any thought can be thought, any argument can be argued; there are some thoughts that can be argued but not lived

3 Worldviews on the Problem of Evil (Os Guinness at The Veritas Forum)


What is evil?
3 Views on the Problem of Evil
Os Guinness | The Veritas Forum
The biggest question is problem of EVIL.  Three families of faiths have very different answers.
I.                  The EASTERN View of Evil

The East (Hinduism, Buddhism) is very, very realistic about evil.  Buddhism is religion-sized answer to suffering and affliction and evil, what the Hindu calls “dukkha” (affliction). 

But the trouble in the East: there’s no solution for evil, suffering, injustice and oppression in the world that we know it.  The only answer is: renounce the world, detach yourself from the world.

What fuels everything is DESIRE, which leads to cravings, which lead to attachment, which binds us to the wheel.  Problem isn’t just that we die, the problem is we’re reborn.  Contrary to Californian idea that reincarnation is “groovy, man, groovy” (as we used to say in the 60’s)—reincarnation, we go round and round and round—maybe, Hindus say—35,000 times.

And the only solution is freedom FROM this world, from the wheel.  So, in the East, freedom is NOT freedom to be an individual; it’s freedom FROM individuality.  You can see, that’s a very radical view.
Buddha, when he was enlightened in Bodh Gaya, he didn’t say, I am liberated!”  He said, IT is liberated!”  He had reached the not-self.  He called his own son “Rahula” which means “fetter”, impediment  or “born chained”. 

In other words, his family relationship was something that was holding him back from the renunciation of the world.  And nirvana, which many people quote, actually means the “great deathless lake of extinction”.

So, Buddhism is the big gigantic NO! ever delivered to human aspirations.  I think it’s a very poor answer to evil, although it has a very realistic view of evil from which we need to be delivered.
II.               The SECULARIST View of Evil

We live in a meaningless universe, because everything finally comes from chance.  There’s no meaning to be discovered in the universe.  If we want meaning, we have got to create it ourselves. 

Bertrand Russell gives us the picture of Atlas carrying his own universe on his own shoulders.

Political Agreement of CNRP and CPP, signed at negotiation from 9 A.M. - 2 P.M., 22 July 2014 [CNRP will take seats in National Assembly for reform of NEC; release of CNRP political prisoners]]

 









Hans Christian Andersen : The Emperor's New Clothes [origin of phrase "the emperor has no clothes"]


Second and to the contrary, it is to CNRP’s advantage not to rely on the  parliamentary immunity. In doing so, it clears one smokescreen to the risible, politically-motivated charges. This is where the focus is and it should be kept here, without any distraction of immunity talk. The legal case is groundless: let it stay clearly so without obfuscation of other side entanglements.
And force the authority to deal with their nakedness—the serious and laughable charges in the political theatre, in plain view for all to see and ridicule. After all, the emperor has no clothes.
