State hammers LSU

barry-stewartSEC semi-final action in Tampa saw Mississippi State defeat regular season champion LSU 67-57 to advance to tommorow’s final against the winner of this afternoon’s Tennessee-Auburn matchup.

State jumped out to an early lead over a Tiger team that appeared a half-step slower throughout much of the day.  After taking a two point halftime lead, the Bullies made a key defensive change midway through the 2nd half, when Jarvis “Swat” Varnardo and Phil Turner switched defensive responsibilities on forward Tasmin Mitchell.  Mitchell went for 41 points in LSU’s mid-season double overtime victory over the Dogs. Swat absolutely smothered Mitchell who managed 15 points on the day.

POY Marcus Thornton was held to 14 points, 0-6 from the 3 point line.  State was led by Varnardo’s 19 point, 7 block, 7 rebound effort, and Barry Stewart’s 17 points, including 10 of 12 from the line.  The State bench contributed 13 points, 7 from super-sub Kodi Augustus, whose late season heroics have provided the x-factor sparkle that has changed State from a good team to an excellent one.

The victory was MSU’s fifth straight.  No doubt, the Bulldogs are playing their best ball of the year.

In the town of Nazareth, muslims have erected a banner at the entrance of the plaza in front of the Basilica of the Annunciation. The banner declares that allah had no son. “He begetteth not nor was he begotten.” link

I couldn’t agree more. There is absolutely nothing about islam that is comparable to Jesus Christ. Anyone who claims allah and God are different names for the same One True God have been deceived. The Lord said, “By their fruits you shall know them.”.

Here is a quick stroll through today’s headlines. Decide for yourself.

The Taliban have blown up more than 100 girls’ schools in Swat in the past 14 months. The destruction of schools and recent threats to teachers and students have forced over 50,000 girls out of schools. Link

Officials in The Netherlands have admitted that their biggest mistake was being politically correct when it comes to Islam. They have gone as far as saying “to become Dutch, you must in principle give up your old nationality.” Read more

Both Iran and its Hamas proxy in Gaza have been busy this Christmas week showing Christendom just what they think of it. But no one seems to have noticed.

On Tuesday, Hamas legislators marked the Christmas season by passing a Shari’a criminal code for the Palestinian Authority. Among other things, it legalizes crucifixion. Link

Channel 4 was rebuked by the Government yesterday for its decision to broadcast an address by the President of Iran as the channel’s alternative Christmas message.

The Foreign and Commonwealth Office said that providing a platform for Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who has called the Holocaust “a myth”, would cause widespread offence, despite the conciliatory tone of his speech. Read more

Imagine the UN appointing David Duke to report on how Blacks are victimizing whites, or Hugo Chavez to report on American foreign policy, or Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to investigate whether the Holocaust occurred….

Well the UN has done something comparable by appointing Richard Falk as its supposedly impartial “rapporteur” on Israeli actions in the Palestinian territories. Link
