That Which Makes America Good is Dissipating


Lady Liberty Drowning in Decay

John R. Houk

© February 27, 2014

 

Governor Jan Brewer of Arizona vetoed SB 1062 designed to keep people of faith – particularly Biblical faith – from being sued by exercising their First Amendment Right to Religious especially against the abomination of the practice of homosexual specifically condemned by the Word of God in both the Old and New Testament.

 

Why?

 

Homosexual Activists have essentially been successful in convincing Americans that homosexuality must be accepted even though God Almighty forbids it. This tells me that Secular Humanism has become so pervasive in our society that a majority of Americans are convinced that human desires are better to be satisfied than the will of the Creator that gave His only begotten Son – God emptied of Divine prerogatives to become the only sinless man – to Redeem humanity back to the path of Oneness with God that Adam experienced before he separated himself from God’s Presence by believing and allying with the Deceiver – Satan – by eating the forbidden fruit of the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil.

 

Sins deemed by humanity to be harmless matters of choice is basically the worship of creation rather than worship of the Creator. Hence as in the days of Noah, humanity has no fear of any consequences by openly disregarding the statutes of the Creator.

 

Jan Brewer had good reasons to veto SB 1062. NONE of those reasons had anything to do with the direction and guidance of God Almighty. Rather here are a few of the obvious reasons dispensed by intense human pressure:

 

The marketing revenue that would flow in Arizona was threatened by both Major League Baseball (MLB), National Basketball Association (NBA) and the National Football League (NFL).

 

  MLB:

 

 “As the sport of Jackie Robinson, Major League Baseball and its 30 Clubs stand united behind the principles of respect, inclusion and acceptance. Those values are fundamental to our game’s diverse players, employees and fans. We welcome individuals of different sexual orientations, races, religions, genders and national origins.

 

“MLB has a zero-tolerance policy for harassment or discrimination based on sexual orientation, as reflected by our collective bargaining agreement with the MLB Players Association. Accordingly, MLB will neither support nor tolerate any words, attitudes or actions that imperil the inclusive communities that we have strived to foster within our game.”

 

The Seattle Mariners issued an individual statement prior to the veto too, and it had an ever stronger call to action than MLB’s:

 

“The Seattle Mariners have enjoyed 37 years of spring training in Arizona. Our fans flock to Peoria for baseball in March, and have always been made to feel welcome by the businesses and good people of Arizona. This should apply to all of our fans. The Mariners respect and value diversity. We welcome fans of all races, colors, religious beliefs, nationalities, ages, and sexual orientations. We believe that intolerance has no place in our game or society. Unfortunately, Senate Bill 1062 sends a message that not everyone is welcome. We hope Governor Brewer will reject that message.”

 

NFL:

 

While no overt threat was made to yank the Super Bowl, it was clear the NFL was watching Brewer.

 

“Our policies emphasize tolerance and inclusiveness and prohibit discrimination based on age, gender, race, religion, sexual orientation or any other improper standard,” NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said in a statement before the decision.

 

“We are following the issue in Arizona and will continue to do so.”

 

NBA:

 

Both of Arizona’s professional basketball teams [the NBA’s Phoenix Suns and the WNBA’s Phoenix Mercury] publicly called for a veto.

Large Corporations Pressure Governor Brewer

 

JP Morgan Chase

 

Go Daddy Group

 

Apple Computers

 

PetSmart

 

American Airlines

 

Southwest Airlines

 

Delta Airlines

 

Intel Corp

 

This list does not include large Arizona businesses and large business associations AND since the above article was written yesterday probably more Corporations were added.

 

Republicans in Name Only (RINO) and Establishment Republicans:

 

o   Senator Jeff Flake (R-AZ)

 

o   Senator John McCain (R-AZ)

 

o   Mitt Romney (R- President Nominee 2012)

 

o   Steve Schmidt, former John McCain Senior Campaign Advisor

 

o   Matthew Dowd, Former George W Bush Campaign Strategist

 

o   Mike Murphy, GOP Political Consultant

 

o   Bob Worsley (R – State Senator initially voted for SB 1062)

 

o   Adam Driggs (R – State Senator initially voted for SB 1062)

 

o   Steve Pierce (R – State Senator initially voted for SB 1062)

 

The Power of Homosexual Activism

 

Peter LaBarbera of Americans for Truth About Homosexuality (AFTAH) provides insights of the kind of Homosexual power/mafia-style oppressive measures by Homosexual Activism that is involved in pressuring Governor Brewer:

 

o   Which Will Triumph in Arizona (and the USA): Freedom or ‘Gay’ Tyranny?AFTAH; 2/26/14

 

o   ‘GAY’ POWER VS. RELIGIOUS LIBERTY;” WND.com; 11/29/13

 

 

Everything to do with power and influencing Americans from the Media, Political Power and Left Wing Secular Humanism such as Homosexual Activism; has SILENCED Christian morality in America. We live in a day that the very evilness that took over and essentially condemned the people of Canaanite heritage become displaced by Divine Ordinance that enabled the fruition of God’s Promise to Abraham for a family heritage that Believers’ in the Bible call the Promised Land, the Holy Land, the Land of Israel and so on (by the way NOT Palestine).

 

Don’t believe the fullness of the times of the Gentiles has completely arrived yet or the Pax Americana will have begun its collapse. I don’t know, maybe Americans are at the beginning of that collapse and is just awaiting the history books or the Return of Christ to record the end of the USA.

 

AND I haven’t touched on America’s Left Wing activist judiciary that has recently (again) affirmed the homosexual debauchery as normal in Adam and Steve or Adriana and Eve marriages.

Kupelian’s "How Evil Works" shines bright


How Evil Works bk jkt

Sometimes I run into book reviews/marketing ploys that are simply worth the effort to cross post. If it piques my curiosity I suspect it will also draw other curious eyes. This is the case of Matt Barber’s review of David Kupelian’s sequel to the “Marketing of Evil” called “How Evil Works”.
 
The Barber review was sent in a WorldNetDaily marketing email that of course included other book products available for purchase. I am just sharing the “How Evil Works” review and the offer to purchase the “Marketing of Evil” as well.

Kupelian’s “How Evil Works” shines bright

I’m a tremendous fan of author and Christian apologist C.S. Lewis. Rarely does one find a writer who can elucidate so profoundly, as could he, the stark contrast between secular humanism – “materialism,” as Lewis called it – and the Judeo-Christian worldview. Seldom does one come across a wordsmith capable of so effectively, objectively and concisely distinguishing between good and evil.

I’ve found that wordsmith.

 
My wife, Sarah, and I were listening to the radio a few months back as Sean Hannity interviewed an author about his latest publication. The book was “How Evil Works,” but we were unable to ascertain, for some time, its author’s identity. We were immediately drawn into the discussion as this mystery guest waxed wise about what he called man’s “millennia-old blind spot” – namely, the existence of evil, how it works and why it destroys us.


I was amazed by the speaker’s insights into this “radioactive topic.” “Wow, this guy really gets it,” I told Sarah. She nodded in agreement, either unwilling or unable to take her attention away from the show long enough to answer. Finally – and for the benefit of us late arrivals – Sean divulged the identity of his guest: It was best-selling author and award-winning journalist David Kupelian.
 
I was no longer surprised.

David continued. He spoke of how America – once the moral guidepost to the world – had, “over time … abandoned its original principles,” only now to suffer from great “moral confusion.”

He spoke of a president, “wearing a mask,” who is “deceptive from morning till night.” A president who, “taking us where we don’t want to go, has to lie about where he’s taking us.”

“Those in power talk an awful lot like those we used to fight,” he said.

That was it. “We’ve got to get this book,” I insisted. Sarah agreed.

I don’t often do book reviews (this is my first in fact), but after reading “How Evil Works,” I felt compelled to put pen to paper. Whereas Kupelian’s conversation with Hannity stopped me in my tracks, his book took it to the next level. It was simply outstanding.

I guess the best way to describe it is to say that “How Evil Works” has the same effect on your brain that yawning has on your ears at high altitude. Things just suddenly pop with crystal clarity.

Throughout “Evil’s” pages David meticulously unpacks today’s most pressing issues, providing unassailable answers to some of our most critical questions. For instance:

 
o   Where have all the statesmen gone – and why do politicians lie?
 
o   Why are so many Americans abandoning their Christian roots and embracing atheism and the occult?
 
o   What drives terrorists to kill?
 
o   How are psychological and spiritual problems linked, and why do we medicate ourselves into zombies?
 
o   Why do people who seem to have everything so often self-destruct and end up with nothing?
 
o   How can we turn it all around and return this great nation to her God-fearing ways?
 
And many more.

In recent days, I was on a flight to Oklahoma City. As I read the last page of “Evil” and placed it in the seat flap in front of me, a 15-year-old girl sitting to my side asked: “So how does evil work?” What an opening! “Well, this book explains it a lot better than I can,” I replied.

For several minutes we discussed worldview and our horribly failing culture. Turns out she was on her way to a missions trip in Jamaica. She mentioned that, like with me, C.S. Lewis was one of her favorite authors. I chuckled and asked: “You’re homeschooled, aren’t you?”

Indeed she was, but explained that in the fall she was attending public school for the first time. “I want to get in there and be salt and light,” she said.

“Well then,” I replied, “take this with you. If you love C.S. Lewis, you won’t be able to put it down.” I handed her “How Evil Works.” She smiled ear-to-ear, she thanked me and we went our separate ways. I’m quite certain that, having read Kupelian’s book, her salt will be that much saltier and her light just a bit brighter.

 
########

o   How does terrorism really work?
 
o   Why are neo-pagan and New Age religions like Wicca becoming so popular?
 
o   Why do so many politicians and entertainment celebrities end up self-destructing?
 
o   Why are big lies more believable than little ones?
 
o   Why are boys doing worse in school today than girls?
 
o   Why do we treat mental-emotional-spiritual problems like rage and depression with drugs?
 
 
 
Hannity: ‘I couldn’t put it down’
 
“How Evil Works” was introduced to the nation by Sean Hannity, who told his audience, “This is a powerful book … I couldn’t put it down.”
 
 
Hannity’s assessment of “How Evil Works” mirrors that of others who have read it. Legendary radio talk-show host Barry Farber expressed it in his typical, colorful style: “With the unapologetic outrage of a saint and the fearless fury of a General Patton, here comes David Kupelian turning a blowtorch of good upon the putrid cobwebs of evil. Do you remember removing the back of a clock to look into the workings? In ‘How Evil Works,’ Kupelian lets us look directly into evil itself. There it is – every tick, every tock, every trick, every shock. Kupelian doesn’t rest with ‘Sunlight is the best disinfectant.’ He prefers the scorch-light.”
 
Chuck Norris praises “How Evil Works” in his latest column, “I believe in the resurrection of America,” saying: “David Kupelian, in his new insightful treatise on what truly lurks behind the troubles in government and America, ‘How Evil Works,’ notes that we’ve been ‘seduced’ to believe that ‘the self-evident truths’ the founders relied upon are just outdated and dangerous myths.” “No wonder,” Kupelian says, “millions of Americans have gradually been demoralized into depending upon government to solve all of their problems, fueling today’s uncontrolled, cancer-like growth in government.”
 
WND founder and editor Joseph Farah sizes it up this way: “Thoreau said, ‘There are a thousand hacking at the branches of evil to one who is striking at the root.’ In his tour de force ‘How Evil Works,’ WND Managing Editor David Kupelian strikes at evil’s root with devastating effectiveness, building on the revelations in his classic best-seller The Marketing of Evil,’ No library is complete without both the original and the dazzling sequel.”
 
And No. 1 New York Times best-selling author Jerome R. Corsi, Ph.D., says: ‘How Evil Works’ is fresh, original, and startlingly insightful. David Kupelian reveals the hidden mechanisms that allow lies and deception to take root in modern America. A truly important book.”
 
 
New! “How Evil Works” is also available as an audiobook version on eight CDs.

Fighting Moral Corruption


annunciation- HS Overshadow Mary. by Nicolas Poussin

John R. Houk
© January 26, 2014
 
The modern commonality of historians discount the practice (or lack thereof) of morality in a civilization for how it thrives or fails. Nearly all religions subscribe to defined morals for their adherents to guide their lives ethically. (That includes the religion I disparage the most – Islam) Historians first like to look at physical factors that lead to a civilization’s demise; e.g. economic circumstances pertaining to feeding the people, military conquest from a variant civilization, mass immigration of a variant civilization, changing climate or environmental circumstances affecting modes of living and so on. I contend the dilution of a civilization’s morals corrupt social mores leading to selfish feel good activity over the common good that unifies the people of a civilization.
 
Normalizing selfishness above communal unifiers will lead to an increase of violence which corrodes the ability to maintain a just rule of law. Religious faith that promotes a standard of ethics designed as a foundation for mutual good interactions in a society defines the lines of good and wrong actions. Religions with morality that condemn actions that cause social strife are religions that promote a thriving civilization. If the religion itself promotes a morality with a harsh retribution and too difficult for the adherents to subscribe, then groups of people will naturally begin to gravitate toward a religion or ethical philosophy that maintains a moral foundation that embraces a common mutual inner fulfillment.
 
Human nature is an imperfect persona. It is in a human’s nature to do that which feels good even if it harms others or self. When the standard of moral ethics imposes restrictions that a civilization has a common acceptance of then self-destructive tendencies are easier to be restrained and the exercise of a self-discipline moves one to choices that result not only in an inner fulfillment but also leads to social interaction that benefits a civilization rather than fracturing it.
 
I am an adherent of the Christian faith that believes in the primacy of Sola Scriptura. The Latin phrase Sola Scriptura essentially portrays the meaning that the Scriptures in the Bible is the foundation for matters of faith and doctrine in Christianity. Not all devoted Christians subscribe to Sola Scriptura as the essence of primacy of relaying faith and doctrine to Believers. Roman Catholics, Eastern Orthodox and many Roman Episcopate type of Protestant Churches (e.g. Anglican-Episcopalian, Methodists, Lutherans etc. – A better Latin phrase for the authority of the Bible is Prima Scriptura implying the primacy of Scripture with the influence of reason and/or tradition) place tradition and reason over the primacy of the Scriptures.
 
The Latin phrase Prima Scriptura or Scripture Above All, is a bit misleading in application. ‘Prima’ indicates primacy and primacy indicates the sense of first among other authoritative options. In the case of the Bible it means Scripture is primary but it is interpreted through the eyes of human reason and human tradition. Hence there is a theological liberty to dilute the interpretation of Scripture to render the original intent of God Almighty to fit the reasoning of human reasoning. This relegates the Scripture into a state of evolution rather than the Eternal Divine Word of God. Meanings are changed to benefit the Progressive desires to transform civilization to human designs.
 
Progressives, Liberals, Leftist or whatever appellation that can be referred to as a mindset dedicated making humanism the primary principle of thought above that of the Creator. Those dedicated to humanism are well intentioned but are deceived or even self-deceived into thinking humanity is the beginning of sentience and the ending of creating a utopia for the greater good of humanity. Such a utopia will never find fruition because it is rebellion against the molder of the clay – the Creator – God Almighty. Does the clay destroy its Creator? It is impossible! That which is molded can be destroyed or remade depending on the designs of the Creator.
 
Thank God the Creator loves the human clay not to scrap it but rather to develop a loving being that willingly chooses obedient Sonship (okay with a hat tip to the ladies) and obedient Daughtership to the Creator spirit, soul and body of humanity. Satan is a lying rebel and was kicked out of Heaven for deceiving himself he could replace the Creator. I believe God used this unholy rebel with the design to separate the bad clay from the good clay of humanity. Adam and Eve’s fall by giving allegiance to Satan and hence turning God’s lease given to humanity to the ownership of Satan. The Earth and humanity became corrupted. Thank God the Father had a better plan than the Deceiver’s plan to replace God. God gave a Promise that the Seed of Woman would produce a Savior that would crush Satan’s head.
 
13 And the Lord God said to the woman, “What is this you have done?”
The woman said, “The serpent deceived me, and I ate.”
 
14 So the Lord God said to the serpent:
 
“Because you have done this,
You are cursed more than all cattle,
And more than every beast of the field;
On your belly you shall go,
And you shall eat dust
All the days of your life.
15 And I will put enmity
Between you and the woman,
And between your seed and her Seed;
He shall bruise your head,
And you shall bruise His heel.” (Genesis 3: 13-15 NKJV
)
 
The “your seed” with a small “s” refers to the descendants of Adam having his fallen nature. The “her Seed” with the capital “S” refers to Jesus in Mary’s womb not their by human but by the overshadowing of the Holy Spirit of God the Father.
 
Note that Jesus was a fetus at one time. Did existing as a fetus in the womb of Mary make Jesus a mere body part like an appendix, a heart, a liver, a bone and so on? In the days Mary, Joseph and Jesus walked the earth the Jewish Law interpretation of the Pentateuch did not look too kindly on an impregnated woman outside of holy wedlock. A Pregnancy outside of wedlock logically implied fornication, adultery or rape. Jewish Law demanded stoning for fornication and adultery. The penalty for rape depends if the woman is married or unmarried. Raping a married woman calls for the death of the rapist. Raping an unmarried woman the victim has a choice of forcing the rapist into marriage and either case the rapist must pay the father 50 shekels of silver (Source – WOMEN AND THE LAW OF MOSES: Laws Concerning the Violation of Marriage, Seduction and Rape (Deut. 22:22-30; Exod. 22:16); Christian Leadership  Center). Mary was not raped. The implications then were fornication or adultery. Not a pretty picture for Mary and the unborn fetus of Jesus in her womb.
 
God operated in miracles and alerted Joseph to the actions he should take pertaining to Mary and unborn Jesus. That action was NOT abortion.
 
In every way an unborn fetus has a God-breathed life awaiting the time to choose between Life in God or eternal separation from God in choosing Satan’s dominion. Choosing Life is always a witting decision. Sadly choosing eternal separation from God in more cases than not an unwitting choice based on believing the deceptive system of this world age controlled by Satan.
 
The act of abortion is an act of murder. Sanitizing abortion as expelling a lifeless fetus body part of a female is a deception of Satan to destroy the seed of Fallen Man before birth and growth allows the choice to become one with the Seed of woman which is Christ Jesus the Lord, the Savior and the Son of God.
 
Abortion is just symptom of moral failure that leads to the demise of a civilization. You can throw in the lifestyle choices described in Romans 1:
 
16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ,[a] for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek. 17 For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, “The just shall live by faith.”[b]
 
18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, 19 because what may be known of God is manifest in them, for God has shown it to them. 20 For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse, 21 because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22 Professing to be wise, they became fools, 23 and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like corruptible man—and birds and four-footed animals and creeping things.
 
24 Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness, in the lusts of their hearts, to dishonor their bodies among themselves, 25 who exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.
 
26 For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. 27 Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due.
 
28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting; 29 being filled with all unrighteousness, sexual immorality,[c] wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, evil-mindedness; they are whisperers, 30 backbiters, haters of God, violent, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, 31 undiscerning, untrustworthy, unloving, unforgiving,[d] unmerciful; 32 who, knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them. (Romans 1: 16-32 NKJV)
 
Abortion and many of these vices have become sins that are separating humanity from God’s Deliverance via the Blood of Christ that transfers the unredeemed into the Redemption of the Kingdom of God’s dear Son. If you are one Delivered from the bondage of Satan’s grasp you have an opportunity to be active to share this Good News that Jesus has come to offer Salvation from Satan age of woe, sickness and depravity.
 
DO NOT CHOOSE an activism that operates in an un-Christ-like manner. It is un-Christ-like to use violence in the name of the Savior to force compliance through fear. For fear is a weapon of Satan incorporating an antichrist spirit using ungodly means to mistakenly think you are operating for the good of God.
 
AND YET rolling over to become a rug to be trampled upon is not a Godly choice either. As a people we can defend ourselves from ungodly people by using the instruments God makes available. In a nation of laws the Redeemed must use the law as the unredeemed will attempt to subvert the law. Only when a government becomes oppressively corrupt should armed violence be taken up. And prayer must be used to find Godly leaders to be anointed to dispense laws in a Godly manner not in an ungodly manner.
 
In America we still have the Liberty of laws to fight wicked agendas. There are many leaders that seek the wisdom of God. One such leader is Mat Staver utilizing the instruments of American laws to fight the people who endeavor to use American law to corrupt of the morals of American people. Below is an email from Mat Staver that uses the nonprofit organization of the Liberty Council to promote legislative lawmakers on the local, state and federal levels to work within the Constitution using the rule of law to keep America on a moral path rather than the moral depravity humanism unwittingly supports.

Turning the tables on Roe v. Wade
 
By Mat Staver
Sent: Jan 22, 2014 at 11:27 AM
 
Psalm 139:9 says, “For You formed my inward parts; You wove me in my mother’s womb.” (NAS)

God, the creator of the universe, created each of us in the womb.

Liberty Counsel affirms that life begins at conception. Preborn children are in fact children, not merely fetuses, and their lives should be protected from the moment of conception.

Yet in America today, many babies are being murdered in the womb because on January 22, 1973, the United States Supreme Court held that the 14th Amendment somehow suggests a woman’s “right” to have an abortion.

My update today is a call to protect the right to life of all Americans, both those who have been born and those who have yet to be born – Mat.

 
 Without the right to life, no other right has any consequence.

Yet each day in America, with the legal covering of the body of law that is anchored in the infamous Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision of 1973, over a thousand women will choose to deny the right to life to their preborn children.
 

In our lamentably callous and morally deficient society, many will do so unceremoniously, without grief, or without even suffering a sense of loss.

According to LifeNews, in the 41 years since the Supreme Court ruled in favor of abortion in Roe v. Wade, over 55 million abortions have destroyed the lives of unborn children.

For far too many American women, abortion has simply become a type of “birth control.”  Planned Parenthood and other aggressive pro-abortion forces have successfully reengineered many Americans’ thoughts about the taking of pre-born human lives.
 

Further, liberal “progressives” and the morally void media have demonized pro-life people and organizations, claiming pro-moral Americans are somehow waging a “war on women.”

++Turning the tables on Roe v Wade.

On January 13, 1984, President Ronald Reagan declared January 22, 1984, as “National Human Life Day.” In doing so, he issued a proclamation which read, in part:
 

“The first of the ‘unalienable rights’ affirmed by our Declaration of Independence is the right to life itself, a right the Declaration states has been endowed by our Creator on all human beings—whether young or old, weak or strong, healthy or handicapped”

We strongly agree with President Reagan’s proclamation and its role in promoting the annual March for Life each January 22.  Advancing the sanctity of human life is one of Liberty Counsel’s core missions.

Every year on January 22, in the March for Life, opponents of abortion march up Constitution Avenue to the Supreme Court Building in Washington, D.C.  Around 250,000 people have typically attended the march until 2010. Estimates put both the 2011 and 2012 attendances at about 400,000 each, and the 2013 March for Life drew an estimated 650,000 people.

As national polls show a steadily increasing majority of Americans opposing the Roe v. Wade decision and the so-called “right” to abortion it codified, the number marching in the annual event increases.  Even following Tuesday’s snow event in the nation’s capital, there will be a massive number of concerned Americans celebrating the right to life in the 2014 March for Life.

++Liberty Counsel is a deeply committed pro-life ministry.

Life has been devalued in many societies throughout history – including, lamentably, our own. The promotion of abortion as a personal “right” is one of our nation’s greatest failings.
 

Anita and I – and our entire Liberty Counsel team – are ardently pro-life. There is no wavering in our resolve to give every child a chance to live

Our hearts also go out to the women who have made the tragic decision to abort – and who are now living with heartfelt regret for that misguided decision. 

++We are actively engaged in pro-life activities and the defense of life every day of every year.

Here are just a few of Liberty Counsel’s initiatives that advanced the sanctity of human life last year…

 
o   After filing the nation’s first private lawsuit against ObamaCare in 2010, we challenged the individual and employer mandates, became the first legal group to argue the case at a federal court of appeals, and filed two briefs before the United States Supreme Court. We reargued the case at a court of appeals in May 2013, and filed a petition with the Supreme Court, challenging ObamaCare’s employer mandate and all mandates that force employers and individuals to fund abortions.
 
o   We entered into a strategic partnership with other pro-life organizations, including Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar of the TV reality show 19 Kids and Counting, to launch LifeUnited, a website that provides a wide range of resources in order to end abortion and help women and families.
 
o   We joined Personhood Mississippi in filing the Life at Conception Citizen’s Initiative, a proposed amendment to the Mississippi Constitution, which states, “The right to life begins at conception. All human beings, at every state of development, are unique, created in God’s image, and shall enjoy the inalienable right to life as persons under the law.”
 
o   We testified before the House Judiciary Committee hearing on “Mismanagement at the Civil Rights Division of the Department of Justice” (DOJ) regarding the DOJ’s politically motivated lawsuits against innocent pro-lifers.
 
o   We filed a lawsuit against the City of West Palm Beach, Florida, on behalf of two pro-life women who faced charges under a vague city ordinance for speaking to women outside an abortion facility.
 
o   We protected preborn children after an abortion clinic was closed in Orlando, Florida.  Liberty Counsel called on Orlando officials to investigate the clinic after representing a mother and deceased child who suffered brutal “care” at the facility.
 
o   We requested that the U.S. Senate pass the Unborn Child Protection Act, which prevents abortion twenty weeks after fertilization.
 
These examples of Liberty Counsel’s passionate commitment to advance life are just a few of the many pro-life efforts we undertook in 2013 – and are the kinds of initiatives we will aggressively undertake in our Silver Anniversary year of 2014.

John, when you stand with Liberty Counsel, you are standing for life and for the protection of the preborn! You are equipping us to fight for the restoration of those values that declare that every life has meaning and a purpose.
 

Life is NOT expendable. It is an unalienable God-given right, and Liberty Counsel will unfailingly fight for its protection!
Would you consider a special gift today that will help Liberty Counsel in our ongoing efforts to defend life and the rights of the preborn?  Every gift, no matter the size, will help us declare that life has inestimable value.

++ObamaCare is the biggest funding of abortion in history.

Tragically, President Obama and his signature legislation known as ObamaCare will do more to advance abortion services in our nation than any single act since Roe v Wade.

ObamaCare is an assault on human life, religious liberty, and freedom of conscience – and the federal government is requiring pro-life Americans to pay for it!

Most important, it is a vicious assault on the preborn and the taking of a life.  Please, help us in our multi-phased efforts to protect life and defeat ObamaCare with a special gift today:

 
http://www.libertyaction.org/7082/offer.asp


I am also calling for unified prayer this “Sanctity of Human Life” month and for the 2014 March for Life.  Please also pray that God will move on the hearts of our lawmakers to protect innocent human life.

God bless you,

Mathew Staver, Founder and Chairman
Liberty Counsel

Homosexuality is a Sin – Are you Ashamed to say so?


Phil Robertson Duck Taped Mouth toon. By Rick McKee 12-20-13

Political Cartoonist Rick McKee nails the truth about A&E censorship of Duck Dynasty’s Phil Robertson for sticking with the Bible that homosexuality sin.

The A&E television network showed its Left Wing allegiance to New World Order Secular Humanist transformation for suspending (“indefinite hiatus”) Phil Robertson for comments agreeing with the Bible that homosexuality is a sin. I was listening to Fox News this morning and this network with the reputation of a Conservative bastion against the predominantly Leftist Mainstream Media (MSM) had a mixed bag commentary on A&E’s actions. I say a blurb from someone (I can’t remember who) being upset with Robertson for placing homosexuality in the same category of sin as adultery, liars, and so on but be especially upset about placing bestiality as an equal opportunity sin as homosexuality.

 

So was Phil lying about the Bible, homosexuality and sin?

 

20 Moreover you shall not lie carnally with your neighbor’s wife, to defile yourself with her. 21 And you shall not let any of your descendants pass through the fire to Molech, nor shall you profane the name of your God: I am the Lord. 22 You shall not lie with a male as with a woman. It is an abomination.23 Nor shall you mate with any animal, to defile yourself with it. Nor shall any woman stand before an animal to mate with it. It is perversion. (Bold Print added – Leviticus 18: 20-23 NKJV)

 

22 Now Judah did evil in the sight of the Lord, and they provoked Him to jealousy with their sins which they committed, more than all that their fathers had done. 23 For they also built for themselves high places, sacred pillars, and wooden images on every high hill and under every green tree. 24 And there were also perverted persons[a] in the land. They did according to all the abominations of the nations which the Lord had cast out before the children of Israel. (Bold Print added – I Kings 14: 22-24 NKJV)

 

[If you click on the superscript note “a” you will discover “perverted persons” had a better translation:

 

Footnotes:

 

a.      1 Kings 14:24 Hebrew qadesh, that is, one practicing sodomy and prostitution in religious rituals]

 

18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, 19 because what may be known of God is manifest in them, for God has shown it to them. 20 For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse,

 

24 Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness, in the lusts of their hearts, to dishonor their bodies among themselves, 25 who exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.

 

26 For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. 27 Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due.

 

28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting; 29 being filled with all unrighteousness, sexual immorality,[a] wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, evil-mindedness; they are whisperers, 30 backbiters, haters of God, violent, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, 31 undiscerning, untrustworthy, unloving, unforgiving,[b]unmerciful; 32 who, knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them. (Bold Print added – Romans 1: 18-20; 24-32 NKJV)

 

Trust me this is only a sampling of the Word of God on sex-sins. Homosexuality is included but not singled out. Just as much as adultery, fornication, bestiality, orgies and so on is concerned they are all sins. Phil Robertson is correct!

 

I sympathize with Phil Robertson because I experienced the same kind of experience. I used to primarily blog on the independent website SlantRight.com. The owner of the server that this blog was upon told me my views that homosexuality was a sinful abomination meant I could no longer blog on his server. The owner was going to remove SlantRight.com but we managed to reach a deal that the old SlantRight.com would remain up as an archive site. If you visit there sometimes you might notice that a bandwidth exceeded message might pop. In which case you would need to wait until the beginning of the next month. Also there is always the chance the server owner may arbitrarily to remove the archive site. My point is the Homosexual Agenda in America has successfully waged a war to bring Americans to view homosexuality as natural and normal rather than an abominable sin. If you stick with the Biblical explanation you will be labeled a bigot. Frankly it is my opinion this but another sign that the Last Days are about to begin or perhaps it has already begun and we Christians have not woke up.

 

Get ready for a load of Homosexual bull manure vilifying Christianity. You will some Christian truths being twisted and warped to justify sympathy for homosexuality. An example might be something like – Christians believe in the Golden Rule which is roughly treat others as you would have them treat you. For a homosexual the Golden Rule principle is a point of hypocrisy because Biblical Christian Believers are bigoted toward same-sex gender people. Of course such a homosexual incendiary comment is misguided. Christians should indeed treat all people as they would have them treat them. BUT that does not mean Christians accept and promote living in sin! That is just twisted homosexual propaganda.

 

Placing the shoe on the other foot though. Taking a stand for Biblical Morality does not mean going out and beat up a man or woman living in homosexual sin. Thank God Almighty that He sent His only Begotten Son (God incarnated as a man) to Redeem humanity from the sinful nature that had bound humanity for ages to the kingdom of darkness created at Adam’s Fall. By accepting the Redemptive act of the Lord Jesus Christ’s Resurrection ANY person is set free from the penalty of sin. Humanity is not fully Redeemed yet. That will not happen until the Second Coming of Christ at the end of the Last Days. At that time not only is our human spirit Redeemed but also our soul and body thus defeating the effects of darkness in totality. UNTIL that day of Full Redemption a Christian might find himself susceptible to sin. I John 1:9 is the way back to God’s Kingdom when a Christian allows himself to succumb to sin.

 

5 This is the message which we have heard from Him and declare to you, that God is light and in Him is no darkness at all. 6 If we say that we have fellowship with Him, and walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth. 7 But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin.

 

8 If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. 9 If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 10 If we say that we have not sinned, we make Him a liar, and His word is not in us. (Bold Print Added – I John 1: 5-10 NKJV)

 

 

Just as an aside I feel compelled to point out that human beings should be warned that I John 1: 9 is not a magic wand to sin whenever one desires deluding themselves that the constant confession of sin will bring forgiveness and open the door to sin again and again. You have to realize that repetitive sin callouses your human spirit and as such you will find yourself separate from God with no desire to truly seek forgiveness of sins. AND you should realize a human being cannot fool God Almighty. God knows the reality of what is in a person’s heart with it is the darkness of Satan’s age or the Kingdom of Light made available by the Redemptive Blood of Christ.

 

Below I am excerpting the part of the Patriot Post’s December 20th Friday Digest pertaining to the A&E network and Phil Robertson. You should begin to load yourself with information about how the criminalizing of Christianity is about to happen.

“Conscience is the most sacred of all property.” –James Madison

 

CULTURE, SCIENCE & FAITH

A&E Fires Phil

 

“Duck Dynasty” star and patriarch Phil Robertson came face to face with theDuck Dynasty Season 3 political correctness police at A&E again this week when he dared to go “off script” during a GQ interview.

 

Last May, the network requested that the #1 show in cable TV history eliminate its references to God and guns, but Phil said no: “God and guns are part of our everyday lives [and] to remove either of them from the show is unacceptable. If we can’t pray to God on the show, then we will not do the show.”

 

Responding to a question about sin in the current edition of GQ, Phil replied in his colloquial manner, “Start with homosexual behavior and just morph out from there.” He then paraphrased 1 Corinthians: “Don’t be deceived. Neither the adulterers, the idolaters, the male prostitutes, the homosexual offenders, the greedy, the drunkards, the slanderers, the swindlers – they won’t inherit the kingdom of God. Don’t deceive yourself. It’s not right.”

 

The reaction from the two most infamous proponents of gender confusion and homosexual normalization was swift and predictable. The so-called “Human Rights” Campaign protested, “Phil Robertson’s remarks are not consistent with the values of our faith communities or the scientific findings of leading medical organizations. We also know that Americans of faith follow the Golden Rule – treating others with the respect and dignity you’d wish to be treated with. As a role model on a show that attracts millions of viewers, Phil Robertson has a responsibility to set a positive example for young Americans.”

 

Well, we think Phil did set a positive example for young Americans!

 

The Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation complained, “Phil and his family claim to be Christian, but Phil’s lies about an entire community fly in the face of what true Christians believe. He clearly knows nothing about gay people or the majority of Louisianans … who support [them].” They accused Robertson of “vile and extreme stereotypes” and “hateful anti-gay comments.”

 

If you want a good resource for “what true Christians believe,” don’t start with GLAAD, start with Scripture. Both the Old and New Testaments are crystal clear on the subject, as Mark Alexander outlined in detail in his commentary, “Gender Identity, the Homosexual Agenda and the Christian Response.

 

As for “the majority of Louisianans,” Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal clarified, “Phil Robertson and his family are great citizens of the state of Louisiana. The politically correct crowd is tolerant of all viewpoints – except those they disagree with. I don’t agree with quite a bit of stuff I read in magazine interviews or see on TV. In fact, come to think of it, I find a good bit of it offensive. But I also acknowledge that this is a free country and everyone is entitled to express their views. In fact, I remember when TV networks believed in the First Amendment. It is a messed up situation when Miley Cyrus gets a laugh, and Phil Robertson gets suspended.”

 

Indeed, A&E immediately surrendered: “We are extremely disappointed to have read Phil Robertson’s comments. The A&E Networks have always been strong supporters and champions of the LGBT community. The network has placed Phil under hiatus from filming indefinitely.”

 

Phil responded, “My mission today is to go forth and tell people about why I follow Christ and also what the Bible teaches, and part of that teaching is that women and men are meant to be together. However, I would never treat anyone with disrespect just because they are different from me. We are all created by the Almighty and like Him, I love all of humanity. We would all be better off if we loved God and loved each other.”

 

The Robertson family responded, “We want to thank all of you for your prayers and support. The family has spent much time in prayer since learning of A&E’s decision. We want you to know that first and foremost we are a family rooted in our faith in God and our belief that the Bible is His word. Phil’s … beliefs are grounded in the teachings of the Bible. Phil is a Godly man who follows what the Bible says are the greatest commandments: ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart’ and ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ Phil would never incite or encourage hate. We are disappointed that Phil has been placed on hiatus for expressing his faith. As a family, we cannot imagine the show going forward without our patriarch at the helm.”

 

In other words, they just put A&E on notice.

 

When it comes to opposing the homosexual agenda, Christians are now routinely condemned for speaking their beliefs. But the tyranny of political correctness is anathema to America itself, and enslaving all of us to a particular code of thought deemed acceptable to leftists is no different from any other kind of slavery.

 

If you’d like to let A&E know what you think, send an email to feedbackaetv@aenetworks.com. (Keep it clean.)

I am a Pro-Life/ANTI-Abortion kind of guy. I don’t believe a woman has a right to kill an unborn baby’s life. The woman might carry the unborn life but that does not make the baby a portion of her body. The concept of Pro-Choice – i.e. a woman should be able to choose decisions about her own body – is a load of self-delusion by Leftist ideology more interested in controlling/managing the extent of the Earth’s population (See Also HERE) than the Civil Liberties of a person’s life (Personhood) that has not been born yet.

 

In early 1973 the Supreme Court exacted a piece of unconstitutional Judicial Activism by creating law rather than ruling on the constitutionality of a law. In essence the case of Roe v Wade the Justices decided by fiat and a 7-2 vote to allow women to kill their unborn babies on demand. The Heritage Foundation has a great summary of the Roe v Wade decision:

 

Summary

In a 7-2 opinion by Justice Harry Blackmun, the Court ruled that a right to privacy under the Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment guarantees a woman’s right to an abortion.  The Due Process Clause protects a broad right to privacy that is also found in the Ninth Amendment and the penumbras of the Bill of Rights.  This substantive due process right to privacy permits a woman to terminate her pregnancy for any reason during the first trimester.  Subsequent to approximately the end of the first trimester, the state may reasonably regulate abortions in ways related to maternal health.  After viability, the state may regulate or proscribe abortions, but it must permit them if found necessary to preserve the life or health of the mother, an exception which was expanded in Roe’s companion case, Doe v. Bolton.

 

Analysis

This case is activist because the Supreme Court relies upon notions of living constitutionalism, invoking the doctrine of “substantive due process” to create a right that is nowhere to be found in the text of the Constitution.  This doctrine, which was established in Dred Scott v. Sandford, is the prime example of judges reading broad constitutional terms divorced from any textual or originalist moorings, thereby making them empty vessels into which they can pour any policy preferences they desire.  The Due Process Clause, which is now being used by judges as a judicial wildcard, was simply meant to protect the citizens from government abuse by ensuring that no one be deprived of life, liberty, or property except by a fair process.  The fact that the Court has used the word substantive to describe a clause that is clearly about process creates an anachronism that defies language and logic.  The Court in Roe wields the Clause to support abortion rights without any reasoned justification: after citing previous Supreme Court cases that erroneously established a broad constitutional right to privacy, the Court blithely asserted that this right “is broad enough to encompass a woman’s decision whether or not to terminate her pregnancy.”

 

The opinion, which received a wave of criticism from those on both sides of the abortion debate, is infamous not only for its foundationless assertions about the meaning of the Due Process Clause, but also for its flawed historical analysis.  In an attempt to evaluate societal opinions about abortion throughout history, Blackmun looks to ancient societies, such as the Persian Empire, as well as the views of modern American lobbying organizations, but completely skips over the state of abortion regulation at the time of the adoption of the Fourteenth Amendment.  Conveniently so.  In 1868 “there were at least 36 laws enacted by state or territorial legislatures limiting abortion, stated Justice William Rehnquist in his dissent.

 

In his dissent, Justice Byron White accurately described this decision as “an exercise of raw judicial power.”  Under the guise of constitutional interpretation, the activist majority seized from the American people their ability to decide this controversial issue through the democratic process. (Roe v. Wade; Heritage Foundation)

 

There is an innovative Pro-Life plan to circumvent Leftists in Congress and in the Supreme Court. The plan is called the Life at Conception Movement (Personhood). Some Pro-Life Activists in individual States have been lobbying for such a law on a State basis. Senator Rand Paul has taken the Movement to the National level by introducing S. 583 in March 2013:

 

Calendar No. 30

113th CONGRESS

1st Session

 

S. 583

To implement equal protection under the 14th article of amendment to the Constitution for the right to life of each born and preborn human person.

 

IN THE SENATE OF THE UNITED STATES

 

March 14, 2013

 

Mr. PAUL (for himself, Mr. WICKER, Mr. BARRASSO, Mr. BOOZMAN, Mr. BURR, Mr. COATS, Mr. COBURN, Mr. ENZI, Mrs. FISCHER, Mr. GRASSLEY, Mr. HOEVEN, Mr. INHOFE, Mr. MORAN, Mr. RISCH, Mr. THUNE, and Mr. JOHANNS) introduced the following bill; which was read the first time

 

March 18, 2013

 

Read the second time and placed on the calendar


A BILL

 

To implement equal protection under the 14th article of amendment to the Constitution for the right to life of each born and preborn human person.

 

Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled,

 

SECTION 1. SHORT TITLE.

This Act may be cited as the ‘Life at Conception Act of 2013’.

 

SEC. 2. RIGHT TO LIFE.

 

To implement equal protection for the right to life of each born and preborn human person, and pursuant to the duty and authority of the Congress, including Congress’ power under article I, section 8, to make necessary and proper laws, and Congress’ power under section 5 of the 14th article of amendment to the Constitution of the United States, the Congress hereby declares that the right to life guaranteed by the Constitution is vested in each human being. Nothing in this Act shall be construed to require the prosecution of any woman for the death of her unborn child.

 

SEC. 3. DEFINITIONS.

 

In this Act:

 

(1) HUMAN PERSON; HUMAN BEING- The terms ‘human person’ and ‘human being’ include each member of the species homo sapiens at all stages of life, including the moment of fertilization, cloning, or other moment at which an individual member of the human species comes into being.

 

(2) STATE- The term ‘State’, and as used in the 14th article of amendment to the Constitution of the United States and other applicable provisions of the Constitution, includes the District of Columbia, the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, and each other territory or possession of the United States.

 

Calendar No. 30

113th CONGRESS

1st Session

S. 583

 

A BILL

 

To implement equal protection under the 14th article of amendment to the Constitution for the right to life of each born and preborn human person.


March 18, 2013

Read the second time and placed on the calendar (S. 583: A bill to implement equal protection under the 14th article of amendment to the Constitution for the rightGovTrack.us)

 

Here is the Library of Congress summary of S. 583:

 

3/14/2013–Introduced.

 

Life at Conception Act of 2013 – Declares that the right to life guaranteed by the Constitution is vested in each human being beginning at the moment of fertilization, cloning, or other moment at which an individual comes into being. Prohibits construing this Act to require the prosecution of any woman for the death of her unborn child. (S. 583 Library of Congress Summary; GovTrack.us)

 

The only drawback I see about S. 583 is that it is a Bill rather than an Amendment. A Bill is easy to repeal depending on the Political Party in power in Congress and/or POTUS. An Amendment centered around the Life at Conception Movement is difficult if not also impossible to get through Congress with America’s current political spectrum divide. On the other hand if Congress managed to pass such an Amendment I suspect a sufficient number of States would line up behind it. The most populous States may be bastions of Leftist deception; however more States are Conservative on the Pro-Life stand pertaining to abortion. Amendments are ratified by State Ratification rather than a direct popular vote.

 

If S. 583 passed with the slimmest of margins in both Houses of Congress I suspect the voters’ choice for President in 2008 and 2012 – our Marxist-in-Chief – would veto the legislation. However, a successful Congressional campaign to enact the Life at Conception Act can lead to an annual thorn in Obama’s side until a Conservative President is elected in 2016. With the Life at Conception Act in mind it should be a no-brainer that Conservatives must win both the Senate and the House in the November 2014 General Elections.

 

At any rate the standard form of pressure that can be placed on our Representatives and Senators is via the petition method. Obviously petitions have no impact on the law on a Federal basis; however Representatives and Senators due pay attention to the numbers of their constituents that sign a petition. The petition numbers give legislators an idea on how to operate their campaigns for reelection.

 

The National Pro-Life Alliance (NPLA) has been at least one of the vehicles that Senator Rand Paul to educate voters on the Life at Conception Act and how such a bill would use the Supreme Court’s own guidelines to make abortion on demand as a birth control method to at least become limited. The NPLA is not only using petitions to influence Representatives and Senators but the organization is also using the petition method as a fundraiser. This a fantastic fundraiser to participate in particularly for Christians who still believe in Biblical Morality. The NPLA petition will lead you to a donation page that will offer choices of donations. Take note that if you are in my boat and have a tight budget and you desire to make sure you give to your Church you might feel a bit limited if you even can donate to the Life at Conception cause; nonetheless one of the options is “other”. So I say, “DO SOMETHING!’ even if it is just $1 buck.

Sign the petition to bypass Roe v. Wade

 

By Senator Rand Paul

Sent: 10/24/2013 3:23 PM

Sent by National Pro-Life Alliance

 

Dear Concerned American,

For 40 years, nine unelected men and women on the Supreme Court have played God with innocent human life.

They have invented laws that condemned to painful deaths without trial more than 56 million babies for the crime of being “inconvenient.”

In 1973, the U.S. Supreme Court’s Roe v. Wade ruling forced abortion-on-demand down our nation’s throat.

In the past, many in the pro-life movement have felt limited to protecting a life here and there — passing some limited law to slightly control abortion in the more outrageous cases.

But some pro-lifers always seem to tiptoe around the Supreme Court, hoping they won’t be offended.

Now the time to grovel before the Supreme Court is over.

Working from what the Supreme Court ruled in Roe v. Wade, pro-life lawmakers can pass a Life at Conception Act and end abortion using the Constitution instead of amending it.

That is why it’s so urgent you sign the petition to your Senators and Congressman that I will link to in a moment.

You see, in the coming year it is vital every Member of Congress be put on record.

And your petition today will help do just that.

Signing the Life at Conception Act petition will help break through the opposition clinging to abortion-on-demand and get a vote on this life-saving bill to overturn Roe v. Wade.

A Life at Conception Act declares unborn children “persons” as defined by the 14th Amendment to the Constitution, entitled to legal protection.

This is the one thing the Supreme Court admitted in Roe v. Wade that would cause the case for legal abortion to “collapse.”

When the Supreme Court handed down its now-infamous Roe v. Wade decision, it did so based on a new, previously undefined “right of privacy” which it “discovered” in so-called “emanations” of “penumbrae” of the Constitution.

Of course, as constitutional law it was a disaster.

But never once did the Supreme Court declare abortion itself to be a constitutional right.

Instead the Supreme Court said:

“We need not resolve the difficult question of when life begins . . . the judiciary at this point in the development of man’s knowledge is not in a position to speculate as to the answer.”

 

Then the High Court made a key admission:

“If this suggestion of personhood is established, the appellant’s case [i.e., "Roe" who sought an abortion], of course, collapses, for the fetus’ right to life is then guaranteed specifically by the [14th] Amendment.”

The fact is, the 14th Amendment couldn’t be clearer:

“. . . nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty or property, without due process of law, nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the law.”

Furthermore, the 14th Amendment says:

“Congress shall have power to enforce, by appropriate legislation, the provisions of this article.”

That’s exactly what a Life at Conception Act would do.

But this simple, logical and obviously right legislation will not become law without a fight.

And that’s where your help is critical.
Please click here to sign your petition right away.

By turning up the heat on Congress in 2013 through a massive, national, grass-roots campaign, one of two things will happen.

If you and other pro-life activists pour on enough pressure, pro-lifers can force politicians from both parties who were elected on pro-life platforms to make good on their promises and ultimately win passage of this bill.

But even if a Life at Conception Act doesn’t pass immediately, the public attention will set the stage to defeat radical abortionists in the next election.

Either way, the unborn win . . . unless you do nothing.

That’s why the National Pro-Life Alliance is contacting hundreds of thousands of Americans just like you to mobilize a grass-roots army to pass a Life at Conception Act. The first thing you must do is sign your petition by clicking here.

They are the key ingredient in the National Pro-Life Alliance’s plan to pass a Life at Conception Act. They’ll also organize:

 

Hard-hitting TV, radio and newspaper ads to be run just before each vote, detailing the horrors of abortion and mobilizing the American people.

 

Extensive personal lobbying of key members of Congress by rank and file National Pro-Life Alliance members and staff.

 

A series of newspaper columns to be distributed free to all 1,437 daily newspapers now published in the United States.

 

An extensive email, direct mail and telephone campaign to generate at least one million petitions to Congress like the one linked to in this letter.

 

Of course, to do all this will take a lot of money.

Just to email and mail the letters necessary to produce one million petitions will cost at least $460,000.

Newspaper, TV and radio are even more expensive.

But I’m sure you’ll agree pro-lifers cannot just sit by watching the slaughter continue.

The National Pro-Life Alliance’s goal is to deliver one million petitions to the House and Senate in support of a Life at Conception Act.

When the bill comes up for a vote in Congress, it is crucial to have the full weight of an informed public backing the pro-life position.

I feel confident that the folks at National Pro-Life Alliance can gather those one million petitions.

But even though many Americans who receive this email will sign the petition, many won’t be able to contribute. That’s why it’s vital you give $10, $25, $50, $100, or even more if you can.

Without your help the National Pro-Life Alliance will be unable to gather the one million petitions and mount the full-scale national campaign necessary to pass a Life at Conception Act.

A sacrificial gift of $35 or even $100 or $500 now could spare literally millions of innocent babies in years to come. But if that’s too much, please consider chipping in with a donation of $10.

You should also know that a National Pro-Life Alliance supporter wants to make your decision to give easier by agreeing to match your donation, no matter the size, increasing its value by 50%!

So please respond right away with your signed petition.

 

And please help with a contribution of at least $25 or $35. Some people have already given as much as $500. Others have given $50 and $100.

But no matter how much you give, whether it’s chipping in with $10 or a larger contribution of $150, I guarantee your contribution is urgently needed and will be deeply appreciated.

That’s why I hope and pray that you will not delay a moment to make a contribution of $1000, $500, $100, $50, $25, or even $10 if you can.

Your contribution to the National Pro-Life Alliance and your signed petition will be the first steps toward reversing Roe v. Wade and waking up the politicians about where our barbarous pro-abortion policy is taking us.

Sincerely,

Rand Paul,
United States Senator

 

P.S. The Supreme Court itself admitted – if Congress declares unborn children “persons” under the law, the constitutional case for abortion-on-demand “collapses.”

 

Please help make that happen. Sign your petition today to the National Pro-Life Alliance to reverse Roe v. Wade, along with a sacrificial contribution of $100, $50, $25.  If that’s too much, please consider chipping in with a donation of $10.

You should also know a generous donor has agreed to match all contributions, no matter the size, increasing your gift to the National Pro-Life Alliance by 50%!

NPLA Legislative Agenda

 

The National Pro-Life Alliance occupies a unique and important role in the pro-life movement. The focus of many other pro-life groups is research, publications or counseling.

These are all important and worthwhile activities, but the National Pro-Life Alliance is singular in its focus on passing pro-life legislation that will protect the unborn from the moment of conception.

BEATEN INTO THE SIN OF TOLERANCE


Don't Judge My Speck if You Have Beam Mt 7_2-3

Here is a comment from Maidservant Huldah pertaining to a post entitled, “Shocking Government Assault on Religious Liberties”. My post was an alert message from Eugene Delgaudio informing Christians that Homosexual Activists and Leftists have succeeded in criminalizing the Christian faith by making it illegal to stand with the Bible when it comes to the sin of homosexuality. Huldah effectively shows a Christian how to rebut an atheist, homosexual or Leftist that toss a shaming judgment accusation back in a Christian’s face.

BEATEN INTO THE SIN OF TOLERANCE

Matthew 7:2 For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.

This scripture is one that is taken out of context more frequently today than any other in the Bible. When a Christian opens his mouth to speak out against someone’s sins, this scripture is the one that is most often thrown back in his face. The sinner tries his best to silence the Christian by pointing the finger back at him. Unfortunately, this tactic works all too often because the Christian, knowing full well that he falls quite short of the glory of God, is often shamed into silence. If the sinner is even a little more knowledgeable concerning the Bible, he may send the final death blow with,


Mat 7:3-5Why do you look at the speck that is in your brother’s eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye?


“Or how can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ and behold, the log is in your own eye?


“You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother’s eye
.”

The well-meaning Christian, believing he was doing the sinner a favor at first, has now been beaten down into a quivering mass of guilt and confusion. This my friends is a tactic of the enemy to cause Christians everywhere to TOLERATE sin.

It is true that these scriptures are about hypocrisy. If the Christian is PRACTICING (willfully committing sin), then he has no grounds to point it out in another. If the Christian has been cleansed from his sins, though he be not perfect, but is PRACTICING his walk in righteousness, it is his duty to call attention to sin when he sees it. Not saying that he is to look for it under every rock, but it is the Christian duty to call others to righteousness, saved or unsaved.

Consider this:

Ezek 33:8-9When I say to the wicked, ‘O wicked man, you will surely die,’ and you do not speak to warn the wicked from his way, that wicked man shall die in his iniquity, but his blood I will require from your hand.


“But if you on your part warn a wicked man to turn from his way and he does not turn from his way, he will die in his iniquity, but you have delivered your life
.

In Galatians chapter 2, Paul confronts Peter (Cephas) publicly about a sin he was committing.


1Cor 5:11 But actually, I wrote to you not to associate with any so-called brother if he is an immoral person, or covetous, or an idolater, or a reviler, or a drunkard, or a swindler–not even to eat with such a one.

How far we have strayed from our Bibles as Christians when the sinner who uses scripture to beat us over our heads gets the upper hand.

It is obvious that Satan himself knows scripture quite well when he used it to tempt Jesus in the wilderness. However, Jesus knew it better, and he tuned it right back around on him.


2 Cor. 11:3 But I am afraid that, as the serpent deceived Eve by his craftiness, your minds will be led astray from the simplicity and purity of devotion to Christ.

Stand firm against Satan’s tricks. Prayerfully read your Bible to learn how to refute twisted scriptures. Let us not bear the guilt of TOLERATING.

Shocking Government Assault on Religious Liberties


Christian Religious Liberty Under Assault

If you could guess a nation that required a special permit or permission to hold a Bible Study in one’s home what nation or nations would you guess? China? Saudi Arabia? Cuba?

 

That nation is in the United States of America.

 

If you are a faithful Christian that practices Biblical Christianity and refuse to have anything to do with homosexuality could you go to jail or be sued?

 

YES!

 

Leftists, Atheists and Homosexual Activists have succeeded in criminalizing Christianity or at least the Christianity that practices Biblical Morality in the USA. It is time to stand UP against this persecution against Christians in America – Christian persecution IS UNCONSTITUTIONAL!

New LGBT Protection Law Criminalizing Believers?


Well now that DOMA has been stricken by the Supreme Court adding judicial fiat to tell Americans to accept homosexuality even if it is against their Christian morals has begun to impinge on American-Christians’ Religious Freedom. In Conservative Texas the city of San Antonio has passed a city law adding more Civil Rights for homosexuals while simultaneously CRIMINALIZING the right for Christians to speak against the Bible-defined abomination we call homosexuality.

Seriously, just lighten up…


Criminalizing Christianity

Should Biblically-minded Christians just lighten up and go about their merry way by looking the other way relating to Homosexual Activism and Left Wing Secular Humanism? I mean this is the modern world and the Living Constitution advocates state culture is ever evolving; thus Christian Morality and Christian cultural morays are outdated in this new age of tolerance and diversity, right?

 

Even if it is the minority stand, I say that is a bunch of Leftist green-bull-pie propaganda attempting to denigrate Jesus Christ the Son of God and Savior of humankind.

 

Below is Dr. Gary L. Cass showing that Christians do not have to be in submission to moral depravity as defined by the Word of God.

Seriously, just lighten up…

 

By Dr. Gary L. Cass

September 5, 2013

DefendChristians.org

 

I recently had a conversation with a church-going friend who was helping me with a home remodeling project. He mentioned that we needed to go to Home Depot in order to get some supplies. I replied that I didn’t frequent Home Depot because I didn’t like their politics. He asked what I meant, to which I responded that they promote the homosexual agenda to children. My church-going friend looked at me and said “You need to lighten up.”

 

Is this true? Should Christians be indifferent to the homosexual agenda? Or are homosexual activists a real threat to our faith, liberties and our children?

 

With the newest Supreme Court decision denying hearings on California’s Proposition 8, the amendment that defined marriage as between one man and one woman, religious liberties are under attack in the state. As predicted, homosexual activists are seeking to legitimize their sinful behavior by forcing Christian businesses to participate in their faux marriages.

 

Recently Defend Christians was contacted by a Christian businessman who was approached by a homosexual “couple” wanting to use the Christian’s privately owned facilities to conduct a wedding. His property has multiple uses, one of which includes a wedding venue. This wedding business brings in around $400,000 a year.

 

After referring this businessman to a Christian attorney, the businessman decided to close the wedding business down. The respected attorney informed the businessman that he had two choices: accommodate homosexuals or get sued for discrimination and then be forced to accommodate homosexuals AND pay damages. The only other option was to get out of the wedding business altogether. So, rather than participate in homosexual marriages, this Christian decided to close down his lucrative business in order to protect his conscience.

 

In Oregon, a bakery owned by a Christian couple recently shut its doors after it was threatened with a lawsuit for refusing to make a wedding cake for a lesbian couple. Melissa and Aaron Klein, owners of “Sweet Cakes” bakery in Gresham, Oregon were the victims of an economic war when homosexual activists harassed and badgered their business for months. The business also came under investigation by Oregon state officials for violating the Equality Act of 2007 which states that people cannot be denied services due to their sexual orientation.

 

Below is a list of similar attacks on Christian businesses and even churches who have been forced to either compromise or to stop offering any kind of wedding services. Some have even been fined for not participating in illicit homosexual marriage.

 

o   Vermont 2005: The Christian owners of the Wildflower Inn were sued for refusing to host a homosexual wedding. In a settlement, owners ended up paying the homosexual couple $30,000 and agreeing to no longer host any weddings at their inn.

 

o   New Mexico 2006: Elane Photography declined to photograph a homosexual civil union ceremony. The company was sued under the state’s anti-discrimination laws. A judge held the company in violation. The New Mexico Supreme Court upheld this ruling last month.

 

o   Hawaii 2012: A same-sex couple from California sued a Hawaiian bed and breakfast privately owned by a Christian woman for not allowing them to rent a room. A recent ruling held that the bed and breakfast violated the state public accommodations law and was ordered to stop discriminating against same-sex couples.

 

o   Illinois 2011: Another bed and breakfast in Alton, privately owned by a Christian couple, was sued when they would not host a same-sex civil union ceremony.

 

o   Kentucky 2012: A T-shirt company, Hands On Originals, was approached by the Gay and Lesbian Services Organization about printing shirts for the group. When they politely declined, referring the organization to another t-shirt company instead, they were promptly sued by the group under Lexington’s anti-discriminatory laws.

 

o   New Jersey 2008: A Methodist church was sued for not offering its facility for use during same-sex weddings. A judge ruled against the church.

 

o   Massachusetts, Washington, D.C. and Illinois 2011: Catholic Charities was prohibited from assisting in adoptions and excluded from future state contracts because it declined to consider same-sex couples.

 

o   Washington 2013: A lawsuit was brought against a florist by the state for refusing to provide flowers for a same-sex marriage. The florist, Barronelle Stutzman, simply said “I could not do it because of my relationship with Jesus Christ.”

 

 

So, was my church-going friend right? Do Christians just need to lighten up?

 

 

I believe that this is a true threat that Christians must be serious about. Are you prepared to answer when someone asks you why are a “bigot” or “unloving”?

Here is an email from pseudonym Solid Snake that exposes homosexual perfidy usually in NY State; however this time he finds a cross section of American Media writing on moral issues primarily relation to Homosexual Activism. The last article is about a Wheaton College professor that got caught with kiddie porn. In case you didn’t know Wheaton College is a Christian University. Wheaton correctly fired this professor shortly after his arrest.

San Bernardino Man Says He Was Fired After Marrying Same-Sex Partner

GLENDORA (CBSLA.com) — A San Bernardino man says he was fired from his job less than two weeks after he celebrated his marriage to his same-sex partner.

 

Reporting for CBS2, Andrea Fujii said Ken Bencomo and Christopher Persky were one of the first same-sex couples to get married in San Bernardino. Their announcement and subsequent nuptials were announced in local papers like the Inland Valley Daily Bulletin.

 

The couple got married days after the Supreme Court overturned Prop 8.

Less than two weeks after saying “I do,” Bencomo says he was terminated from his teaching job at St. Lucy’s Priory High School, an all-girls Catholic school, in Glendora.

 

Fujii spoke to Bencomo’s attorney by phone.

PENTAGON TO PERMIT BENEFITS FOR SAME-SEX SPOUSES

WASHINGTON (AP) — Same-sex spouses of military members will be eligible for the same health care, housing and other benefits enjoyed by opposite-sex spouses starting Sept. 3, the Pentagon said Wednesday.

 

The decision follows consultation with the Justice Department and the Supreme Court’s ruling in June on the constitutionality of the Defense of Marriage Act.

Green Card Granted: Victory over DOMA for Becky and Sanne in North Carolina

By SVETA APODACA

The DOMA Project

 

Late Sunday night, DOMA Project co-founder, immigration attorney Lavi Soloway, boarded a red eye flight from Los Angeles to Charlotte, North Carolina, to witness the equal protection guarantee of the U.S. Constitution work its magic for a married binational lesbian couple, Becky and Sanne, and their beautiful daughter, Willow.

 

Although North Carolina voters passed the infamous anti-gay state constitutional “Amendment 1 in May 2012 that bars The Tar Heel State from recognizing and performing marriages or civil unions of same-sex couples, Masliah & Soloway clients, Becky and Sanne, who married in the Netherlands, were treated just as any other married couple as they arrived at their green card interview on Monday, August 5th, at 10 a.m. at the USCIS office in Charlotte. The Officer thoroughly reviewed the journey of their relationship which began in India and included time spent in Belgium and the Netherlands as well as Africa. The Officer was satisfied that they had provided sufficient evidence of the bona fides of their marriage and officially re-opened the denied green card application (the Board of Immigration Appeals had already ordered the green card petition to be re-opened) and adjudicated it at (READ THE REST)

In a policy change announced Friday by Secretary of State John Kerry, the United States will begin processing visa applications for same-sex couples effective immediately.

 

“If you are the spouse of a U.S. citizen, your visa application will be treated equally. If you are the spouse of a non-citizen, your visa application will be treated equally. And if you are in a country that doesn’t recognize your same-sex marriage, then your visa application will still be treated equally at every single one of our 222 visa processing centers around the world,” Kerry said during an appearance at the U.S. embassy in London.

 

The announcement is the latest repercussion following the Supreme Court’s June decision striking down Section 3 of the federal Defense of Marriage Act, defining marriage as between a man and a woman.

Former Wheaton College prof pleads guilty to child porn charge

By Clifford Ward – Special to the Tribune

7:51 p.m. CDT, August 5, 2013

Chicago Tribune

 

A former Wheaton College professor pleaded guilty Monday to a charge of aggravated child pornography possession and could be sent to prison.

 

Donald Ratcliff, 62, admitted guilt to the felony in DuPage County court before Judge John Kinsella, who set an Oct. 9 sentencing date. Ratcliff could face a three- to seven-year prison term, though probation is an option.

 

In exchange for his guilty plea, prosecutors dropped nine other pornography counts against him.

 

Ratcliff, who had been a professor of Christian education at the college since 2006, was arrested at his Carol Stream residence in March 2012 after police executed a search warrant. They found 500 illegal images on a computer they took from his home office, Assistant State’s Attorney Louisa Nuckolls said.

 

Police said Ratcliff was making child pornography images available for download over the Internet. Police obtained the warrant after tracing the images to Ratcliff’s computer address, Nuckolls said.

 

Ratcliff admitted to police that he had acquired the child pornography, Nuckolls said.

 

He was fired from his job at the college about two weeks after his arrest.
