    Check out the "iVote" video on the page. Funny! Remember the guy that funded the Swift boat group? The guy from Texas? He has endorsed Brian Klock for Delay's old seat. The guys name is Bob Perry. One of the people that almost single handidly kept John Kerry out of office. Looks like there are still some conservative trying to get elected. Too bad klock does not have any money compared to some of the others.

    Texan and super-conservative Bob Perry formally endorsed Brian Klock for the Texas Congressional seat in CD-22. A Republican candidate for the District 22 congressional seat will be getting a lot of attention today with a very unique campaign ad. klockforcongress.orgIt's yet to be seen just whether it's negative or in his favor. Now in the private sector, Brian Klock remains a commander in the US Navy Reserve. He's an underdog candidate trying to gain new ground. Later Monday, his campaign will unveil a billboard (pictured above) on the Southwest Freeway near Fountainview. It shows crosshairs trained on downtown Houston, it...

    Brian Klock has his cause and eats it, too. To show solidarity with U.S. troops, the commander in the Navy Reserve said he lunches every day on packaged "meals-ready-to-eat," the common fare for soldiers in the field. In the crowded race for the Republican nomination to take on Democratic U.S. Rep. Nick Lampson, Klock is one of several contenders with military experience. He said he went on active duty to the Balkans and was deployed in support of American troops in Afghanistan....... Please read more here.

    Are we really getting the most effective representation with Ron Paul as our Congressman? The presidential debates have exposed a stubbornness and inability to compromise that is at odds with the intentions of the founding fathers. Democracy requires negotiation and compromise to reach a consensus. We negotiate and compromise in our daily life, at work and at home. Ron Paul's inability to reach consensus on vital issues makes him ineffective as our congressman. Ron Paul is a self-described Libertarian; if he is so enamoured with Libertarian philosophy, why is he running in the Republican primary for Congress? I welcome his...

    October 05 2005 The Rev. William Klock: "The Life of Renewal" From the Rev. William Klock of Christ Church REC in Oregon, we have the sermon The Life of Renewal, based on Ephesians 4:17-32 and St. Matthew 9:1-8. Rev. Klock does his usual excellent work in exegeting these passages, and I like what he writes here about the passage from the Gospel of St. Matthew:Our Gospel lesson illustrates the renewal that St. Paul writes about in the Epistle. Look again at St. Matthew?s gospel: And getting into a boat he crossed over and came to his own city. And...

    The Rev. William Klock: "Our Unity in Christ" Considering some of the news we have seen lately about efforts towards reunification of the various churches, the sermon Our Unity in Christ by the Rev. William Klock of Christ Church REC in Oregon is quite timely. This point is quite pertinent to much of what has been going on:We need to be realistic and acknowledge that there are factors in the Church that tend to drive us apart. But in our lesson from Ephesians we learn a second fact about the Church and that is that underneath all these differences...

    September 15 2005 The Rev. William Klock: "The God of Comfort" From the Rev. William Klock of Christ Church REC in Oregon, we have The God of Comfort, which is based on Ephesians 3:13-21 and Luke 7:11-17. This sermon is a fitting one for the anniversary of 9-11, and for a time such as this when we as a nation are wrestling with the problems arising from Hurricane Katrina. As Rev. Klock notes, Today?s lessons couldn?t have come at a more appropriate time. This Sunday we?re reminded that we are to look for God?s comfort and consolation in our...

    The Rev. William Klock: "Our Godly Devotion" From the Rev. William Klock of Christ Church REC in Oregon, we have the fine sermon Our Godly Devotion, which is based on Galatians 6:11-18 and the Gospel of Matthew 6:24-34. I thought this portion was quite apt for our day and age:Think about it: which is something you should fear more, the persecution of men or the ?persecution? of God. The Romans or the Jews could imprison these young Christians. They could beat them. They could kill them. But nothing they could do would disinherit them from God?s promise of eternal...

    The Rev. William Klock: "The Godly Virtue of Purity" Last week, the Rev. William Klock of Christ Church REC in Oregon preached a sermon on "The Godly Virtue of Love" and now this week's sermon is The Godly Virtue of Purity, based on Galatians 5:16-24 and Luke 17:11-19. I thought this sermon was excellent:Our hearts are spiritual battlefields. On one side the sinful desires of the flesh, of our natural fallen selves, of what should be the ?old man? battles against the ?new man? created by God?s grace in each of us. The ?old man? has no concept of...

    The Rev. William Klock: "The Godly Virtue of Love" From the Rev. William Klock of Christ Church REC in Oregon, we have the sermon, The Godly Virtue of Love, which is based on Galatians 3:16-22 and Luke 10:23-37, the readings for Trinity 13 from the 1928 Book of Common Prayer. He notes the following about our use of the Decalogue in the liturgy:The Decalogue, the Ten Commandments, have been a part of our Communion liturgy since the second revision of the Prayer Book in 1552. The Old Testament Law summarised as these ten short commandments is something we need...

    The Rev. William Klock: "A Fading Splendor and a Shining Hope" From the Rev. William Klock of Christ Church REC in Oregon, we have the fine sermon, A Fading Splendor and a Shining Hope, which is based on the readings for Trinity 12 in the 1928 BCP, 2 Corinthians 3:4-9 and St. Mark 7:31-37. This sermon has several good points, one of which that impressed me being this one:Even greater, the Christian priesthood is a broader priesthood. In the Old Testament, God called on the tribe of Levi to be the priesthood and the role of serving as mediator...

    An Advent sermon from the Rev. William Klock Continuing something of an Advent theme, here is a sermon for the First Sunday in Advent, from the Rev. William Klock, rector of Christ Church (REC) in Portland. He writes:We need to use the time we’ve been given wisely. The life we’re living now is the night and eternity is the morning. We don’t know exactly how far away the dawn is, but it’s closer than it was yesterday. St. Paul reminds us that we don’t have time to waste by indulging our sinful nature. Through Christ we are new creations. He...

    This is an open letter (read open wound) to those business people not engaged in the business of serving me and my fellow consumers - we who are as vital to their continued survival as tax dodges, buyable politicians and oxygen: Please stop offending me with that fatuous flatulence about how momentous an event it is when I place a call to you. Although time has dimmed the light of my memory, I clearly recall the kinder, gentler and more considerate days when I picked up the telephone and almost instantly spoke to a fellow humanoid to whom I could...

    Listen, grandchildren, and you shall know of a piggy bank that ain't no mo'; For years they deducted part of our pay, and promised they would salt it away; Instead, they made it a money tree, then shook it with shameless chicanery; This caused every dollar to disappear before our very first golden year; To cut to the chase, kids, we're sad but sure that your Social Security is insecure; With apologies to Longfellow, that bit of homespun doggerel fairly expresses the sorry state of a program which, like the Garden of Eden, went awry due to human mismanagement, thus...

    Columnists' Corner "When is a Life Worth Living?" By Joe Klock, Sr. Two recent items in the press served to shed more heat than light on two of the touchiest areas of our culture. In one, Governor Jeb Bush and Florida's Legislature trumped both a husband's wishes and those of the patient by restoring artificial life support to his wife, who has been in a "persistent vegetative state" for thirteen years. Meanwhile, in Washington, Brother George and Congress were in the process of banning so-called "partial birth abortions." Both are classic examples of how the combined wisdom of our...

    Columnists' Corner "Failure is not an Option in Papal Succession" by Joe Klock, Sr. As this is being written, a sad reality is playing out in the Roman Catholic Church, wherein the long reign of a remarkable and holy man is coming to a close. The pontificate of John Paul II, will undoubtedly go down in history as one of the more significant periods in the annals of the Church, following the momentous changes of Vatican II. Most observers agree that he somewhat adjusted the windows of change thrown open by John XXIII, putting the brakes on aggiornamento and...
