- Re: B.C. government fights to reinstate 'gag law', John Bermingham, April 01, 2009
Ray Strachan brings up the problem of evil and wonders how it can be reconciled with the Christian God. This is, of course, a very good question. There are a number of answers possible, though just like Mr. Strachan, none have every satisfied me. But let me pose a question.
Is a person who writes a book containing hundreds of predictions with names, dates, times, places and events over a period of thousands of years, and has every prediction come true exactly as written with none of them being wrong in any respect simply a very lucky guesser? Or, to put the question another way, if you could write a book covering the next several thousand years, with hundreds of names, dates, times, places and events, and were right every time, never wrong, would you simply be a very lucky guesser?
I do not know why God does what He does, but I am personally convinced that the Bible was not written by a lucky guesser.

Mr. Harper, Mr. Kenney--in the interest of saving the taxpayer money for hiring the thought police to search for those who watched the video presentation of George Galloway, I am writing to you to tell you that I have watched the videos to date.
As you have been ordered by Meir Weinstein, the Canadian representative of the terrorist group JDL, to monitor everyone who listens to Mr. Galloway, I just wanted to be open and honest with you. This will save time and tax dollars.
Mr. Galloway asked if Mr. Kenney would have the courage to debate him one on one. I too am asking this question. Mr. Kenney--do you have the courage?

Subject: CFUN coverage of 9/11 opportunity! Need 300 emails! to push it through
Send them a short email asking for shows on the topics: here is their conntacts

-------- Original Message --------
I got some emails out from my non-9/11 contacts that I know of and also got on air... so agreed, *everyone should do their part asap!* Those outside greater Vancouver, please also send an email (preferable if you have a general email address -though you can
access the show Canada-wide) .... *please ask others to do likewise.* Emails should express interest in 9/11, Afghanistan, Iraq, and related issues. Let's see to it a lot of women e-mail in, too.

Hello all Truth supporters,
An opportunity to discuss 9/11 issues on CFUN has arisen.Patrick Maliha has a radio show on CFUN, yesterday he was discussing Afghanistan when a caller said he thought it was a fraud, and that he was sceptical about 911,and mentioned the pipe line ,etc.Patrick Maliha said that he wanted to dedicate a whole afternoon show to these and other related topics,but the management thinks that no one is interested in hearing it.He then said that he wanted the station to be inundated with calls and emails for support for this kind of thing.
Vancouver 9/11 Truth member, Johnny, then got on his show today and asked him again about the special, Patrick told Johnny on air that what it would take is 300 emails or calls into the show, expressing interest in our role in Afghanistan, 9/11 and other related topics, and he would do a 2 hour special on these topics.
There are 250 people on this email list, so if everyone takes 2 seconds to shoot a quick email to CFUN and forwards to any other friends that may be interested then we should be able to fill the quota of interest.
Their phone number is:*604 280 1410*
or, write a quick note here: http://www.talk1410.com/shows.php
or here is there full contact page: http://www.talk1410.com/contactus.php
Thanks everyone, hopefully together we can push this issue into the mainstream.
I just sent an email, so 1 down, 299 to go.
