Take America Home to Better Days

If you are a Baby Boomer (or actually older), you’ll appreciate Justin Smith’s reminiscing of younger days. If you are from any generation of Americans that are post Baby Boomer born, you should read this as a Jeremiad warning of a possible (Justin might argue probable) American decent into a dark future.

Take America Home to Better Days

[Before the] Destroying the [of] American Family

 

By Justin O. Smith

Sent 7/20/2019 7:08 PM

 

Older men, such as myself, surely must sit in amazement and incredulous dismay at the direction the “Women’s Liberation” movement has taken America, since the 1970s, as it is currently and regularly stated in many sectors of society, that men’s energy and sexuality must be “harnessed and directed”, while at the same time men and their masculinity are attacked, as something “toxic”. Women in all settings, especially the nuclear family, used to be the harnessing factor, but now, it seems they spew a hatred of men better than anything of socially redeeming worth.

 

It is important to recall that this movement emanated from the Communist Manifesto and the teachings of Marx and Engels, and it was aimed primarily at accelerating the destruction of the nuclear family.

 

And when one looks at the results, one finds it has succeeded better than could be imagined, as today, America sees large populations of angry young men, void of social mores, without any direction for their lives and largely unemployed or a perpetual student; they are men-boys without any interest in babies, who have grown up shiftless and violent.

 

Far too many of America’s young women exhibit the same ailments and social ills, as the young men, while even worse, they are neglectful of the children they have borne, they are unkempt and in many instances, they exhibit few of the finer feminine qualities and bear little resemblance to women. We can call them “female”, but as for “women” that remains questionable, for they are far from the strong women of yesteryear that helped strong men build an Exceptional and strong America.

 

Those embittered young men who are involuntarily celibate, “incels“, say that this condition is forced on them, because women simply will not have sex with them. Yet, they do nothing extra to help themselves appeal to any woman at all. Women, on the other hand, heap on an extra amount of abuse and do nothing to help them change, ridiculing them instead.

 

Women blame the “patriarchy” for their hostile attitudes to modern men, and yet women work, own property, vote, hold public office, drive, have credit in their own name, go to college, have sex whenever they want and they even murder their own babies at will, and they have done all of this for a very long time. So, I don’t know exactly what the patriarchy is doing to hold them back, but they’ve been pretty inept to this point.

 

Deny it all you wish, but this vicious cycle is a direct result of the immoral policies long advocated by the Democratic Party, in the name of “the people”, “freedom” and “the Constitution”, when the exact reverse was the only truth. It’s always been about power and control, and it’s a firm truth that the hand that rocks the cradle rules the world, which is the reason Democrats say, “it takes a village to raise a child” and advocate the lie that the State’s interest in the children of their domain supersedes the parents’ rights.

 

Currently, women similar to women of yesteryear, all the good and decent conservative Christian women of America today, are the natural caretakers of our children, and as such, they also double as the societal gatekeepers. Throughout history, women wielded more power than many admit, through their families and the social circles of the world.

 

When I was a young boy and we would attend family reunions or holiday gatherings, I recall the interactions between my numerous aunts and uncles, the great aunts and uncles especially, as the men were sent outside to drink their beer and spit their tobacco, with the hilarious rolling of the eyes from the women and their warnings to stay away from the kids and watch their mouths. These same rough and tough strong willed men would wash up and behave themselves at the table, when dinner was served, lest the wrath of the Aunts come down upon them like a ton of bricks, and then they rose on Monday and went to work, because they had families depending on them. However, today’s Aunts are right beside the men, drunk as skunks or high as a kite on meth or heroin or whatever the day’s drug of choice might be and encouraging this bad behavior to their children, on the record and fully displayed for all the world to see.

 

If a man wanted to be accepted in society and have any sort of decent home life, he stayed out of trouble, worked a steady job, stayed clean and took care of business in general, with most even attending a church of one denomination or another, never drinking, or at least drinking too much, and staying away from women who drank too much. Even being in the companionship of a divorced woman was frowned upon at one time, although I do agree this was probably taking things too far, for any time, since sometimes some people just shouldn’t be together; and, these were the men most sought after by women, in years gone by.

 

Women were more sophisticated, refined and decorous in those days, They were more kind and loving and took care of themselves and their families. One wouldn’t find any of them leaving their children alone, while they spent the entire night at a club, and their houses weren’t such messes that even a self-respecting badger or bear wouldn’t live there. And unlike so many of the women today, they didn’t treat their vaginas like a hostage situation was underway and the only way in or out was through a financial transaction of goods or hard cash, quite similar to the oldest profession.

 

We humans are supposed to be far above the animal world. We are supposedly better than the animals who mate and then go on their way without another thought other than surviving another day, yet more often we see our young acting not much better than the animal kingdom. Too many single parents are trying to raise children, on both sides of the genders, and it makes for a difficult situation and so often a less than desirable and suitable situation for any child, that brings suffering to all.

 

From and economic viewpoint, I don’t see us ever returning to a time where women didn’t work outside of the home, and not many would really want that, although I know many conservative women who actually prefer devoting all their energies to their family’s needs and obtaining them through the best of their abilities. However, with technology making life so much easier and no one having to spend a whole day doing laundry and such things, and with food easily accessed at the local grocery store, one would think it leaves much more time for men and women alike to attend the churches and synagogues and to get closer to those Judeo-Christian principles of Our Founding, to get better acquainted with the Western virtues of Our Founding [Blog Editor: A closer examination of Western virtues & America’s Founding in this essay entitled, “Liberty and Virtue in the American Founding”] and to counter the trends of immoral secularism aimed at destroying the foundation of our families, society and culture.

 

It’s all about personal freedom and choices.

 

Our youth are choosing to turn their backs on God and America’s Founding principles, because they have succumbed to the pretty Marxist lies and propaganda that glorify every vile and evil thing imaginable under the sun. They prefer the glitz and the supposed glamour that comes with the immoral lifestyles that are so prevalent today, the lifestyles that bring nothing but misery, sorrow and a hard death, with one’s conscience and soul blackened nearly beyond redemption. They will soon learn a hard lesson, and we can only pray and work towards the end that leads them back along the path of God’s Righteousness and a life well lived, with having lived it reward enough, the sweet kind and loving memories taking Us home to better days, and children held close as the treasure they are.

Christians Persecuted Over LGTB Issues Fight Back

 

Holy Bible Surrounded by LGBTQ Climate

 

By PNW STAFF

JULY 08, 2019

Prophecy News Watch

 

The number of Christians losing their jobs and being persecuted for their faith over LGTB issues continues to rise but many are fighting back with lawsuits.

 

Mr. Tomasz vs. Ikea

 

The latest high-profile case is from the world’s largest furniture retailer, IKEA.  A worker at the mega store had been fired from his job after he refused to participate in a pro-LGBT event and posted Bible verses about homosexuality on social media.

 

IKEA had urged workers to participate in International Day against Homophobia, Biphobia and Transphobia on May 16 and “to stand up for the rights of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender plus people of all sexual orientations and gender identities.”

 

IKEA worker, Mr. Tomasz responded that “I’ve been hired to sell furniture but I’m a Christian and these aren’t my values.”  He then proceeded to post verses from scripture in opposition to homosexuality on social media.

 

When ordered to attend a disciplinary hearing over the verses it was demanded that he take down the posts but he refused, saying “I cannon censor God”.  A few days later IKEA terminated his contract stating that he was “expressing his opinion in a way that could affect the rights and dignity of LGBT+ people.”

 

Now, Mr. Tomasz is fighting back. Represented by conservative Polish legal group, Ordo Iuris, he is suing for wrongful termination.

 

“The insinuation contained in the Ikea statement is unacceptable and violates Mr. Tomasz’s personal rights,” Ordo Iuris chairman Jerzy Kwasniewski explained, noting that it “can be read as motivated by prejudices against Christians”.

 

Ikea was attempting to “censor the Holy Bible” and calling the “Old Testament “legally unacceptable,” Kwasniewski added.

 

Poland’s minister of justice, Zbigniew Ziobro, has called the case a “shocking matter” and “absolutely scandalous if confirmed” — he has ordered the prosecutor’s office to investigate.

 

Israel Folau vs. Rugby Australia

 

In a similar fashion to Mr. Tomasz, Australian Ruby star Israel Folau was also fired after posting Biblical verses considered offensive to homosexuals on social media and refusing to take them down.  He subsequently had his multi-million dollar contract with Ruby Australia terminated.

 

Folau, Super Rugby’s all-time record try-scorer, had a contract until 2022 and was expected to represent the Wallabies at this year’s World Cup in Japan. In addition to his contract being terminated, the athlete lost sponsorship deals with companies, including car manufacturer Land Rover and sportswear brand Asics.

 

According to his legal representatives, Folau is now seeking “substantial remedies from his former employers should they be found to have breached the Fair Work Act in terminating his employment.”  The athlete will challenge his firing under section 772 of the Fair Work Act, which prohibits an individual’s employment being terminated on the basis of religion.

 

In May, a three-member panel announced that it decided to terminate Folau’s employment over his comments. The decision made the devout Christian the first Australian athlete to be dismissed for expressing religious beliefs.

 

At the time, Folau said he was “deeply saddened” by the decision but underscored his belief that “the Christian faith has always been a part of my life and I believe it is my duty as a Christian to share God’s Word.”

 

“Upholding my religious beliefs should not prevent my ability to work or play for my club and country,” he said.

 

“Ours is an amazing country built on important principles, including freedom of religion,” Folau continued. “A nation made up of so many different faiths and cultural backgrounds will never be truly rich unless this freedom applies to all of us.”

 

He went on to state, “No Australian of any faith should be fired for practicing their religion.”

 

Felix Ngole vs. University of Sheffield

 

In a shocking case for Christian students worldwide, Felix Ngole was dismissed as a student from Sheffield University in the UK for posting comments on social media critical of homosexuality.

 

Ngole, who was a second-year Master’s student studying to be a social worker, became the subject of a “Fitness to Practice” hearing, as he was advised that he “may have caused offense to some individuals” and had “transgressed boundaries which are not deemed appropriate for someone entering the social work profession.”

 

Following additional meetings, the Sheffield committee concluded that Ngole’s beliefs would negatively affect his “ability to carry out a role as a social worker,” and was consequently advised that he was “excluded from further study on a program leading to a professional qualification.” The school informed Ngole that he is “no longer recognized as a university student.”

 

However Ngole fought back with the assistance of the Christian Legal Centre and took them to the Royal Courts of Justice. Unfortunately the court agreed with the university that such views could negatively affect his social work.

Undeterred, he fought back once again and this time the court of appeals agreed, ruling that “the mere expression of views on theological grounds (e.g. that ‘homosexuality is a sin’) does not necessarily connote that the person expressing such views will discriminate on such grounds,” it said.

 

“In the present case, there was positive evidence to suggest that the appellant had never discriminated on such grounds in the past and was not likely to do so in the future (because, as he explained, the Bible prohibited him from discriminating against anybody).”

 

The court expressed concern that the university’s viewpoint appeared to be that Christians can never voice such views other than behind closed doors lest someone aware of their line of work should find out.

 

“In our view the implication of the university’s submission is that such religious views as these, held by Christians in professional occupations, who hold to the literal truth of the Bible, can never be expressed in circumstances where they might be traced back to the professional concerned,” it outlined. “In practice, this would seem to mean expressed other than in the privacy of the home.”

 

“In practice, if such were a proper interpretation of professional regulation supported by law, no such believing Christian would be secure in such a profession, unless they resolved never to express their views on this issue other than in private,” the court continued. “Even then, what if a private expression of views was overheard and reported?”

 

To demonstrate the concern, the panel said that in following the university’s logic, Ngole would not even be free to speak his views at church.

 

“The postings in question here were found following a positive internet search by the anonymous complainant. What if such statements had been revealed by a person who had attended a church service or Bible class?” it asked.

 

Ngole responded to the ruling saying, “This is great news, not only for me and my family, but for everyone who cares about freedom of speech, especially for those working in or studying for caring professions. As Christians we are called to care for and serve others, and publicly and privately we must be free to express our beliefs, especially when asked, without fear of losing our livelihoods.”

 

“I have suffered tremendously as a result of how I was treated by the University of Sheffield and I feel that four years of my life have been taken away from me. Despite all this, I feel overwhelming joy that what I have lost will be so much gain to Christians today and in the future as a result of this important ruling for freedom.”

Intro to ‘MassResistance mothers expose what really happens to children at LGBT ‘Youth Pride’ events’


Intro by John R. Houk

© July 6, 2019

 

Some of the most militant people on the Left are those who advocate a homosexual agenda. Repeat what the Bible – the Word of God – says about anything to do with same-sex abominations and you can count on hate-comments and hate-email. You might find the blog service or social media service you utilize is so entrenched to tow the line of the homosexual agenda that you’ll receive a deplatform warning or downright be suspended.

 

I share this about a militant LGBTQ because I’m about to share a MassResistance alert about drag queens shows for children which includes how kids are brainwashed to accept or even practice an LGBTQ lifestyle.

 

I won’t be surprised if you’ve never heard of MassResistance or if you have heard, you have not seen much about MassResistance. The reason is MassResistance is one of the most reviled expose-LGBTQ websites by homosexuals on the Net. The organization is no stranger to Gay-lawfare tactics trying to bankrupt them with legal actions. Examples:

 

 

 

 

 

Those are just some examples of Gay-Lawfare.

 

This is just an intro setting up the latest MassResistance alert I received on July 3 exposing what goes on at these Drag Queen story hours largely at Public Libraries across the nation. This alert focuses on the licentiousness children are exposed to in Renton, WA. The event was labeled as a “Teen Pride Event” at a Public Library aimed at the age group between nine and nineteen years old. Even predominantly Left-Wing Washington State parents should be horrified about this homosexual brainwashing.

MassResistance mothers expose what really happens to children at LGBT “Youth Pride” events

 

July 3, 2019

MassResistance

 

Kids given materials for homosexual sex, transgender body mutilation

 

Lessons in how to become a “drag queen”

 

Parents harassed by both local police and rabid Antifa activists

 

Here’s just a part of what they were giving out to the kids. Yes, it’s all about homosexual sex, transgenderism, drag queens, and more.

 

Have you ever wondered what REALLY goes on at “gay” high school and middle school clubs and other “youth pride” programs for schoolchildren? We’re constantly told that it’s all about tolerance, anti-bullying, “AIDS education,” and especially feeling “safe.” We’re told that we must trust the adults running these events – who are unsupervised and lacking background checks. Virtually all of these programs take place at schools or offsite locations where parents (and the public) are easily excluded.

 

The short answer is: It’s a nightmare – and it’s anything but “safe” for children!

 

“Teen Pride” event planned at a public library

 

But on Saturday, June 22, the local LGBT groups in Renton, WA scheduled a “Teen Pride” event at the local public library.

 

In early June when some parents in Renton first noticed the library promotion for the “Teen Pride” event, they were very worried. Among other things, it advertised “safer sex presentations” and a “drag show,” as well as an introduction for kids to local LGBT organizations. They also were shocked that it was advertised for “teens and tweens.” This can include children as young as 9 years old and as old as 19.

 

Of course, there’s no way this was “designed by teens.” It’s all adult driven.

 

The parents contacted MassResistance for help, and our Washington MassResistance chapter got right to work. The parents first wanted to protest the event. But instead, we told them that the best thing would be to get inside and take photos and video of what happens. They agreed, and we worked with them on planning for that.

In the days leading up to June 22, as word of the event spread, there arose a big pro-family push to force the library to cancel it. In particular, The Activist Mommy Elizabeth Johnston asked her thousands of followers to call and email the library – resulting in a flood of phone calls. But the library refused to relent.

 

Instead, one of the library employees contacted the Antifa chapter in Seattle and urged them to take action against the local parents opposing it. We’ve already seen that Antifa makes it a point to attack parents who protest Drag Queen Story Hours. Maybe it reflects their own dysfunctional backgrounds, but individual Antifa activists seem very obsessed with protecting those who push homosexuality and other kinds of deviant behavior on children.

 

The event takes place – here’s what the mothers saw

 

On the day of the event there was no pro-family protest outside the library. Instead, three local MassResistance mothers were able to walk inside the event with their cameras. Although the event was for “youth” ages 9-19 – and the room was almost filled with them – there were several other adults there, mostly involved with the presentation.

 

Our activists said most of the kids looked like they were around 12-15 years old. A few looked like they were about 10. Many looked sadly lost. The main presenters were two women in their 20s.

 

Surprisingly, the mothers were able to take videos and photos quite openly during the event, in full view of everyone. What they saw was ghastly. It’s difficult to come to terms with the fact that people do this with children.

 

The largest part of the presentation was about helping the kids be comfortable and “safe” while performing homosexual sex acts. This included instructions on using lubricant and condoms for anal sex, flavored condoms, and dental dams for lesbian oral sex or anal “rimming.”

 

Besides condoms, lubricant, and all the rest, they even gave the kids two types of penis-shaped bookmarks.

 

This is a female condom, which is also used for anal sex. PREP NAV in upper right is an HIV-prophylactic drug so people can have “gay” sex and get insurance coverage for it.

 

The presenters led the younger kids through various exercises to introduce and instruct them on the details of how to use their condoms properly. The reason for this was, “if you are performing oral sex, or anal sex, or vaginal sex.” It was horrible to watch.

 

In one exercise, several children along with one adult were lined up with signs describing the steps of using a condom during sex (see photo below). From left to right the signs read:

 

Pintch [sic] tip of condom
Roll condom down erect penis
Intercourse with condom
Ejaculate with condom
Hold condom on penis while pulling out
Take condom off penis

 

These children (with one adult, second from right) were part of a “condom” exercise led by the “Teen Pride” presenter.

 

The “Teen Pride” presenter. A fake penis was a central part of the presentation.

 

Another large part was devoted to transgenderism – making the children comfortable about “changing” to the opposite sex. Planned Parenthood representatives spoke about their “gender reformation services” that involve “giving testosterone and progesterone to young people.” They wanted to let the children know that this was available to them to make their “transitioning” easier. Make no mistake: This is recruitment.

 

At one point the presenters gave away “breast binders” to several of the girls. Breast binders are large straps that tightly cram a girl’s breasts flat to her chest – so she can look more like a boy. In fact, it is now recognized that these can cause serious damage to girls’ bodies. But the LGBT movement heavily promotes these to girls who may be “questioning” their “gender.”

 

Eight girls got gift cards for chest/breast binders, as if this is something they should want to have and use.

 

There was also an effort to get the children to take an active role in the LGBT movement. There were “pride” buttons and various propaganda pamphlets.

 

PFLAG is a national LGBT organization targeting schoolchildren.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

They are really out to mold children’s minds on their sexual agenda.

 

“Straight Ally” means being an active supporter of the national LGBT movement.

 

Finally, there was a “drag queen” presentation. Four bizarre men dressed as women performed lewd, sexually provocative dances for the kids. One sang, “If you feel like a girl then you really are a girl … sh*t, f*ck.” Then they talked to the kids about how they can become drag queens themselves. One drag queen revealed that he mentored a current drag queen from the age of 12. All four of them shared their Twitter handles with the children, to follow their “careers.” (That, of course, will lead children right into a triple-X-rated world of depravity and link them up with predators in that “community.”)

 

What would a “youth” event be without drag queens?

 

One of them did a bizarre strip-tease like dance for the kids.

 

This one got on his hands and knees and screamed.

 

The four adult drag queens dancing for kids put on two shows with a Q&A afterward.

 

Here’s what kids will find when they look at the drag queens’ social media posts. (CAUTION: Disturbing images.)

 

All of this was portrayed as a normal and positive experience for children by the presenters and the adults working with them, as well as library staff members who were in the area. It was only the three mothers who saw anything wrong at all.

 

“The big focus seemed to be sex, getting into drag, hating your body and being everything you’re not,” said one of the MassResistance mothers.

 

The videoing mothers get thrown out by police

 

At 5:00 pm the presenters suddenly announced that “all adults not accompanying a teen must leave.” This was clearly aimed at the MassResistance mothers who were filming the event. It was hard to tell if the other adults there were parents of any of the kids.

 

The presenters told the two mothers with cameras that they had to go now. (The third mother who was not filming apparently escaped their notice, and was able to stay and watch.) The two mothers said they were refusing to leave because, they said, this is was a public building and this was a public event, and they were concerned about the children.

 

The police came and forcefully escorted the two mothers out, informing them that they were guilty of “criminal trespass.”

 

“We didn’t talk to any of the kids, we didn’t harass anybody. We were polite,” one of the mothers said. “I saw kids that looked like they were 10 years old. It was horrifying.” But the police were quite hostile and not interested in their explanation of what the kids were being exposed to. Sadly, this attitude by police has been our experience across the country.

 

There were four police officers on hand to make sure that these two mothers didn’t go back into the library.

 

Note: Our advice to the activists prior to the event was to strongly insist on their right to record in a public place, but ultimately to obey the orders of police (and make sure to get their badge numbers, etc.). We certainly understand that in the heat of a situation that doesn’t always happen. Luckily, the library told the police they were not pressing charges and the police let the mothers free once they were outside the building.

 

Immediately harassed and attacked by Antifa thugs

 

The two mothers walked to the parking lot. They were quickly surrounded by four men – Antifa thugs – who began screaming at them and threatening them, calling them vile names. They said they were going to photograph them and their license plates and put it on social media. One began to blow a loud shrieking whistle at them. The mothers had to call 911 for police to come and escort them safely to their cars. Of course, none of the Antifa goons were arrested or charged with anything.

 

This is a tweet sent out by an Antifa thug with a photo of one of them blowing a loud whistle at the two mothers in the parking lot to harass them. But the police took no notice of that.

 

After the two mothers left the event …

 

The mother who was able to stay until 7:00 pm told us that kids were referred to Lambert House, “community center for LGBT youth” in Seattle. She says the kids were told they are “recruiting performers ages 13-22.” The mothers told us they have found out that Lambert House has a legal team informing kids of their “rights” – and hosts drag shows and dances for ages 13-22.

 

Getting the news out!

 

We train our people not to be intimidated by the Left’s disgusting tactics. Antifa hooligans and thugs will not stop our MassResistance activists! The mothers went right home and began getting the word out about this hideous event.

 

Within a day it was covered in one way or another by several national conservative media outlets, from PJ Media to Fox News. Though those media focused on the drag queen part of it, the mothers’ effort was still a success!

 

Final thoughts

 

We all hear a lot about what the LGBT movement is doing to the schoolchildren it targets across the country. But it’s rare for parents – or the general public – to see it first-hand. It truly boggles the mind how revolting it actually is.

 

Sadly, this trend is not new. For many years, MassResistance has been exposing the content of “LGBT youth” events.

 

But let’s be painfully honest: The most evil people in all this are the ones we all trust to protect children – the school officials, the elected school board members, the teachers, the library staff, etc. But they are doing just the opposite, actually helping these horrible special interest groups prey on the children. In addition, their efforts recruit vulnerable kids into the perverse LGBT “community.” Good people need to recognize this and act accordingly.

 

MassResistance hopes to help lead the way!

ABOUT MassResistance

 

A leading pro-family activist organization, MassResistance provides the information and guidance people need to confront assaults on the traditional family, school children, and the moral foundation of society. Based in Massachusetts, we have supporters and activists in all 50 states, Puerto Rico, and several foreign countries.


Our group was founded in 1995 as Parents’ Rights Coalition. Under the name Article 8 Alliance during the “gay marriage” crisis in Massachusetts, we worked to have the Mass. Supreme Court ruling voided and to stop Gov. Romney from implementing the unconstitutional ruling. We adopted the name MassResistance in 2006 when our role as the true resistance to tyrannical government became clear. (See our 2017 article at American Thinker, “On the Meaning of “Resistance.)

 

Since we were in the first state to see homosexual activism in the schools and “gay marriage,” we thoroughly understood the threat of sexual radicalism, curtailed freedom of speech, uneven application of the law, judicial activism, and post-constitutional government.

Brian Camenker has been the Director of our organization from its founding and is its main reporter. Amy Contrada joined the group in 2004 and contributes research and writing. Many dedicated staff and volunteers have kept us going.

 

What makes us different?

 

Boston Herald columnist Howie Carr once described us as a “hardcore pro-family group.” We cover issues and events other conservative groups are afraid to touch. We don’t compromise with the Left. We READ THE REST

 

Next Step Church/State Separation Plague


John R. Houk

Clearly California legislators either failed their civics classes or are viewing the First Amendment in a reverse Original Intent format:

 

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.  -First Amendment on ConstitutionCenter.org

 

Until activist Courts including SCOTUS began dismantling the Religious Liberty in the First Amendment in the mid-20th century, history CLEARLY illustrates the Founding Fathers intended the First Amendment to mean the government must stay out of all things related to the Christian Church yet Christianity was to be a moral influence on government.

 

Although legal scholars might use an earlier starting point, the big date for SCOTUS revisionism is 1947: Everson v. Board of Education. The SCOTUS decision 5 affirms and 4 dissents. Hugo Black wrote the majority decision and Justices Jackson and Rutledge wrote dissenting opinions. The point being ONE VOTE revised the First Amendment original understanding that stood 160 years of government out of Church but Church being a moral influence on government:

 

Since this ruling in 1947, courts throughout America have looked to this opinion as a watershed from its historical interpretation from the days of America’s Founding Fathers. Justice Black and those supporting his opinion on the Court introduced a completely new element that was and is at variance with the historical interpretation of the First Amendment. Justice Black and his colleagues inserted new law into the Constitution that the Supreme Court justices for nearly 160 years had never seen. The historic position of the Supreme Court and lower courts was summarized by Supreme Court Associate Justice, David Brewer, and his majority opinion (Holy Trinity vs. United States, 1892) and subsequently enlarged upon in his book, The United States a Christian Nation. (The Truth about Separation of Church and State: Error of Justice Hugo Black; By Stephen Flick; Christian Heritage Fellowship

 

A good read on the issue is Justin Smith’s ‘The Fallacy of “Separation of Church and State”’. Another good read is “How the Supreme Court Twisted the First Amendment and Banned Religion in Public Schools” by Zachary Garris at Teach Diligently.

 

The Dems are perpetuating this assault on Religious Liberty via the Dem sponsored Equality Act (H.R. 5) in the House. The aim of the Equality Act is to force Americans (undoubtedly aimed Biblical-minded Christians) to further accept the godless LGBTQ lifestyle. If the Republican majority Senate passes its version of the Equality Act (S. 788) introduced on March 13, God have mercy on America.

 

What brought these thoughts to fruition though is State legislation in Leftist haven of California. My July 3 news alert from Prophecy News Watch (PNW) informs me a California State bill would force Christian Pastors/Preachers to zip their lips on preaching the Bible about the godless homosexual lifestyle.

 

The California Bill is ACR 99 and it “… would FORBID pastors from saying homosexual acts are sinful? A bill REQUIRING them to affirm same-sex relationships and gender identity? It has been proposed!” (The bold text is my emphasis of the quote in the PNW article.)

 

If read or hear the Left (these days that includes some Churches who have abandoned the Word of God) tell you, “The Bible does not condemn homosexuality”; those sources are blatantly lying and maybe even twisting the original meaning of Scripture with completely faulty revisionist scholarship. (Just like activist Judges and Justices to the U.S. Constitution.) HuffPo is a classic example of twisted-lying Left-Wing sourcing. If you are a Bible-believing Christian belonging to this Wikipedia list (as of today last updated 7/3/19) of Churches accepting LGBTQ in one fashion or another, YOU are in danger of placing yourself in rebellion to God (choosing the same path of Adam and Eve [godless Adam & Steve or Adriana & Eve]). Rebellion causes God-Separation, aka the Second Death (Genesis 3: 1-9; 1 John 2: 15-17 HCSB):

 

Genesis – The Temptation and the Fall

1Now the serpent was the most cunning of all the wild animals that the Lord God had made. He said to the woman, “Did God really say, ‘You can’t eat from any tree in the garden’?”

The woman said to the serpent, “We may eat the fruit from the trees in the garden. But about the fruit of the tree in the middle of the garden, God said, ‘You must not eat it or touch it, or you will die.’”

“No! You will not die,” the serpent said to the woman. “In fact, God knows that when[a] you eat it your eyes will be opened and you will be like God,[b]knowing good and evil.” Then the woman saw that the tree was good for food and delightful to look at, and that it was desirable for obtaining wisdom. So she took some of its fruit and ate it; she also gave some to her husband, who was with her, and he ate it. Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they knew they were naked; so they sewed fig leaves together and made loincloths for themselves.

 

Sin’s Consequences

Then the man and his wife heard the sound of the Lord God walking in the garden at the time of the evening breeze,[c] and they hid themselves from the Lord God among the trees of the garden. So the Lord God called out to the man and said to him, “Where are you?[Bold text Editor’s – Signifies God-Separation]

 

1 John 2

15 Do not love the world or the things that belong to[a] the world. If anyone loves the world, love for the Father is not in him. 16 For everything that belongs to[b] the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride in one’s lifestyle—is not from the Father, but is from the world. 17 And the world with its lust is passing away, but the one who does God’s will remains forever. [Bold text Editor’s – Homosexuality is only one of many sins of the world separating one from God.]

Why This New California Bill Is So Dangerous To The Church

 

Gay Church Flag

 

By MICHAEL BROWN/ASKDRBROWN.ORG

JULY 03, 2019

Prophecy News Watch

 

Last week, I put out a warning about a bill under consideration in California known as ACR 99. I explained “Why California Pastors Must Stand Up to Government Tyranny.”

 

I also tweeted about the bill. I asked: “What? A California bill that would FORBID pastors from saying homosexual acts are sinful? A bill REQUIRING them to affirm same-sex relationships and gender identity? It has been proposed!”

 

One of my Twitter followers, a younger Christian man, challenged my reading of the bill. He insisted that it did not infringe on Christian liberties. Is he right?

 

Let’s take a look at this bill more carefully. Once we do, you’ll understand why Christian legal organizations, along with pastors and ex-gay leaders in California, are so concerned.

 

The Bill is Bad

 

The final text of the bill states this: “This measure would call upon all Californians to embrace the individual and social benefits of family and community acceptance, upon religious leaders to counsel on LGBTQ matters from a place of love, compassion, and knowledge of the psychological and other harms of conversion therapy, and upon the people of California and the institutions of California with great moral influence to model equitable treatment of all people of the state.”

 

Is this really so bad? Yes.

 

First, who gave the government the right to issue a call like this? Who gave the government the right to tell religious leaders that they cannot help people with unwanted same-sex attractions pursue change? (Broadly speaking, that’s what “conversion therapy” ultimately refers to. The term, of course, is used in a derogatory way.) If ever there was an overstepping of the separation of Church and State, this would be it.

 

Second, what, exactly, is meant by “equitable treatment of all people of the state”? Based on the findings which form the foundation of this bill, it would mean affirming transgender identity and transgender “rights,” even when those “rights” infringed on the rights of others.

 

And this is not just idle talk. The bill passed it its committee vote and is heading to the California Senate for a full vote. Let’s dig in a little deeper to see exactly what California pastors and religious leaders are facing.

 

The Presuppositions

 

ACR 99 is based on a number of presuppositions, all introduced with the word WHEREAS. Here’s the first: “The California State Legislature has found that being lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender (LGBTQ) is not a disease, disorder, illness, deficiency, or shortcoming.”

 

Based on this, it would be wrong to believe or teach that homosexual practice is sinful. Or that homosexual desires are disordered. Or that there is anything wrong with homosexual relationships. Or that a man who believes he is a woman has any type of deficiency. And this is just the first of the 9 “WHEREAS” clauses!

 

Another clause rejects any attempts to change a person’s LGBTQ identity. (This appears under the heading of “conversion therapy.”)

 

And another states that “the stigma associated with being LGBTQ often created by groups in society, including therapists and religious groups, has caused disproportionately high rates of suicide, attempted suicide, depression, rejection, and isolation amongst LGBTQ and questioning individuals.”

 

In other words, if you preach and teach what the Bible says about LGBTQ issues and people, no matter how loving and compassionate you are, you are guilty of stigmatizing them, thereby causing them emotional and even physical harm.

 

The intent of this bill is perfectly clear.

 

The Government Telling Pastors What to Preach

 

That’s why Liberty Counsel issued a warning, stating, “CA RESOLUTION THREATENS PASTORS AND COUNSELORS.”

 

Specifically, the resolution “calls on religious leaders and others with ‘moral influence’ to affirm homosexuality and ‘transgenderism’ and to accept that Christian efforts to help people with unwanted same-sex attraction or gender confusion are ‘ineffective, unethical and harmful.’ As a resolution, ACR 99 does not have the force of law but will be persuasive for some policymakers. It will now go to the state Senate for a vote.”

 

That’s why the California Family Council, which is on the front lines of this legislative battle, wrote that “CA Legislators to Tell Pastors What to Preach from their Pulpits on LGBT Behavior & Identities.”

 

Life and Hope

 

And that’s why ex-gay leaders Ken Williams and Elizabeth Woning protested the bill. As Woning wrote, “For us, walking out our faith with biblical conviction means life and hope. Our faith has saved us from suicide and given us freedom to live with clear consciences. We too would like to be acknowledged and affirmed. … Instead, activists attack our efforts to care for like-minded friends by promoting dangerous counseling restrictions and stifling our free speech.”

 

In short, this bill would state that pastors and Christian counselors do not have the right to walk out their faith and live out their biblical convictions.

 

It would stop them from offering the fullness of the Gospel to people with unwanted same-sex attractions and gender identity confusion. And it would constitute, in no uncertain terms, a frontal assault on their — and our — religious liberties.

 

That’s why it must be resisted.

The Cross Does Not Offend the Constitution


SCOTUS undoubtedly chapped the hide of Leftist Transformists everywhere with its 7-2 to keep the Bladensburg Peace Cross standing on taxpayer supported public land. Read Justin Smith’s thoughts.

The Cross Does Not Offend the Constitution

A Landmark Victory for Religious Freedom 

 

By Justin O. Smith

Sent 6/22/2019 11:22 PM

 

The Constitution as written, not the personal views of judges, should guide how the American people express their religious faith in the public square.” ~ Emilie Kao, Director of the DeVos Center for Religion and Civil Society

 

A fine blow was struck for religious freedom, when the United States Supreme Court handed down a 7 to 2 landmark victory in the case of the American Legion v. the American Humanist Organization, on June 20th 2019, as the majority opinion determined that the Peace Cross on public land in Bladensburg, Maryland, just outside of D.C., does not violate the Establishment Clause of the U.S. Constitution. The forty foot tall Peace Cross commemorating forty-nine of Prince George’s County men who died fighting in WWI can now remain on public land, property of the State of Maryland.

 

The American Humanist Organization originally filed suit in 2012, and modified the suit in 2014; they forged ahead to force the removal of the Peace Cross, suing the Park and Planning Commission and the American Legion, that originally paid for its erection, in part. The AHO alleged that the presence of the memorial on public land amounted to a government establishment of religion.

 

In the beautiful shape of the Cross, the Bladensburg World War I Veterans Memorial was erected between 1919 and 1925, by Gold Star Mothers and a local American Legion post. The Cross design was provided by the Gold Star Mothers in 1919 to recall the cross-shaped grave markers standing over the thousands of American graves on the Western Front of WWI, with one mother actually referring to this memorial as her son’s “grave stone”.

 

This surely had to be at the front of the majority’s mind, in making their decision, since particularly troubled by opposition’s Taliban-style proposal of chopping off the arms of the Cross, Justice Samuel Alito offered the following in the decision: “Many memorials for Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. make reference to his faith. These monuments honor men and women who have played an important role in the history of our country, and where religious symbols are included in monuments, their presence acknowledges the centrality of faith to those whose lives are commemorated.”

 

John Seaburn is the name of one of the soldier’s whose name is memorialized on the plaque at the base of the Peace Cross, having bravely marched off to join the Army in an all African American unit. His great-niece, Alvergia Guyton is one of the few people left with a personal connection to the Cross, stating “It’s been there all my life; it’s history”, and on June 20th seven Justices in America’s Supreme Court agreed with her, leaving John Seaburn’s sacrifice and those sacrifices of Prince George’s Native Sons intact and unsullied.

 

This case did little to untangle the confusion created by past Establishment Clause decisions, since two dissenters, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Justice Sonia Sotomayor, saw it as a clear violation, and those seven who did not, Justices John Roberts, Stephen Breyer, Elena Kagan, Clarence Thomas, Brett Kavanaugh, Neil Gorsuch and Alito all offered opinions that didn’t offer a fix to the underlying problem and the many different past interpretations regarding the intent of the Constitution. So, these sort of issues will continue to manifest themselves, and if anything, this case reveals the importance of Justices who view the Constitution through the prism of Original Intent.

 

And even though “separation of Church and State” is a fallacy and a gross misinterpretation of a passage written to the Danbury Baptist Church by Thomas Jefferson, the AHO vowed to fight on to “bolster the First Amendment” and to “(redouble their) works to strengthen the wall of separation between church and state, brick by brick.”

 

In her dissent, Justice Ginsberg stated: “Soldiers of all faiths ‘are united by their love of country, but they are not united by the cross … ‘ By maintaining the Peace Cross on a public highway, the Commission elevates Christianity over other faiths, and religion over nonreligion.”

 

America was founded as a Christian nation, and that’s just a historical fact and a matter of record, but it was founded to also be tolerant of all other religious beliefs. The Founding Fathers’ vision was a country that facilitated all Americans’ free expression of faith even if in the public square, and all across the span of our nation’s history, Americans have used religious symbols to commemorate a variety of meaningful events, whether one speaks of holidays, the Courts and sworn oaths or prayer in State legislatures.

 

[Blog Editor: Many Leftists, Secular Humanists, Separation of Church-State Ideologues and probably other Anti-Christian groups would strongly disagree with Justin’s belief, “America was founded as a Christian nation”. To justify their misguided Anti-Christian attitude you will read the Left-version of cherry picking that actually twist facts. The Left will accuse Christians of cherry picking as well, but the difference Leftist cherry picking often are quoting out of context or using a historical person who represented an absolute minority opinion as in the rare atheist or French-influenced Deist (AND there is quite a difference between a French Deist and an American Christian Deist). Here are some posts demonstrating America’s Christian heritage which trust is not exhaustive:

 

 

 

 

 

President Trump’s appointment to the Court, Justice Neil Gorsuch rightfully suggested that the Court shouldn’t have heard the case, because the plaintiffs could show no concrete injury other than they were “offended” by seeing it as they pass it. Gorsuch wrote: “This ‘offended observer’ theory of standing has no basis in law … What matters … to assessing a monument, symbol, or practice isn’t its age but its compliance with ageless principles. The Constitution’s meaning is fixed, not some good-for-this-day-only coupon, and a practice consistent with our nation’s traditions is permissible whether undertaken today or 94 years ago.”

 

Justice Samuel Alito, writing the Majority Opinion for the Court, noted: “(The Peace Cross) has become a prominent community landmark, and its removal or radical alteration at this date would be seen by many not as a neutral act but as the manifestation of ‘a hostility toward religion that has no place in our Establishment Clause traditions …  The Religion Clauses of the Constitution aim to foster a society in which people of all beliefs can live together harmoniously, and the presence of the Bladensburg Cross on the land where it has stood for so many years is fully consistent with that aim. The Cross is undoubtedly a Christian symbol, but that fact should not blind us to everything else that the Bladensburg Cross has come to represent … For all these reasons, the Cross does not offend the Constitution.”

 

Kelly Shackelford, president of  First Liberty law firm and a defender of religious freedom, who defended the case, exclaimed: “This is a landmark victory for religious freedom. The days of illegitimately weaponizing the Establishment Clause and attacking religious symbols in public are over.”

 

Forever memorialized, these men were regular, ordinary Americans, doctors, farmers and laborers, educators, some in their prime and one in his fifties — already wounded — who probably shouldn’t have been on the front lines. They all had one thing in common. They never came home and they were much loved and sorely missed by those who waited for their return. And one-hundred years after WWI, Americans are still fighting for the concrete ideas these fine American patriots died to give us, the foundation of the First Amendment and its manifested inherent Freedom.

 

Many descendants of these fine men have lived with the Peace Cross all their lives, as it has stood gracing the skyline one mile from D.C. for nearly a century, and they are shocked to their very core that any American would challenge its right to exist, regardless of its placement on public land. Their memories include the story of the mothers who slowly pulled the American Flag from the base of the Cross ninety-four years ago to reveal the names of forty-nine soldiers, American heroes, who made the final sacrifice of their lives in World War I. It’s survived all this time, through WWII, Korea, Vietnam, Desert Storm and 9/11 and Enduring Freedom, and now, Thanks to God and the Supreme Court, it has survived its most dire threat and a terrible battle with radical, extreme atheists intent and determined to destroy this much respected and greatly loved memorial simply because it was in the shape of the Cross.

JUST IN: Why The Supreme Court Ruled 7-2 The WWI ‘Peace Cross’ Stays

 

June 20, 2019

100PercentFedUp.com

 

The Supreme Court just ruled that the Bladensburg Peace Cross, a cross-shaped WWI memorial in Bladensburg, Maryland, does not violate the Constitution’s establishment clause.

 

It will remain standing and in the care of the government.

 

The vote was 7-2 for the Peace Cross to stay with Justices Sotomayor and Ginsburg as the lone dissenters:

 

SCOTUS Decision (7-2) Peace Cross Stays 6-20-19 screen capture

 

The courts ruling says that the cross represents ‘sacrifice’  and that’s why he can stay put. The 40-foot Peace Cross is a 94-year-old memorial to honor 49 men who fought and died in WWI.

 

Pete Williams described the decision in-depth:

 

A Humanist organization brought the case against the cross and won in a lower court. This reverses the lower court’s decision.

Life Is A Sacred Gift


Individual States of the American Union are pushing back against the godless SCOTUS decision of 1973 in Roe v. Wade which legalized baby-killing for any reason. Justin Smith elaborates on this sanctity of human life usurped by Leftist Court decisions.

Life Is A Sacred Gift

The Unborn Child’s Right to Life

 

By Justin O. Smith

Sent  5/18/2019 7:18 PM

 

Intellectual dishonesty is the only condition that allows so many Americans to call the murder of unborn children “a right to privacy”. It allows the sacred union between men and women and their joining in love to be diminished and made so casual to the point that any product of sex can simply be tossed in the garbage, like so much refuse. It has become a cover for denying one’s own responsibility and the consequences for any ‘mistake’, as far too many deny their own irresponsible behavior, and instead, they relax comfortably in their ignoble position that destroys the sanctity of life and kills a baby that has a soul, without a valid reason sanctioned by God, an act tantamount to infanticide.

 

Recently, after chaos broke out during a debate over a proposed abortion bill in Alabama’s state Senate, Lieutenant Governor Will Ainsworth said, “It is important that we pass this statewide abortion ban legislation and begin a long overdue effort to directly challenge Roe v. Wade”.

 

Not long afterwards on May 14th 2019, Alabama Governor Kaye Ivey signed into law the Alabama Human Life Protection Act, without exceptions for rape and incest, that was approved by overwhelming majorities in both chambers of the legislature. The Governor noted: “To the bill’s many supporters, this legislation stands as a powerful testament to Alabamian’s deeply held belief that every life is precious and that every life is a sacred gift from God.”

 

This is the issue nationwide. Far too many Americans are not willing to acknowledge the fact that sex between a man and a woman is a sacred matter ordained by God. They are not willing to admit that the product of such unions — a little vulnerable innocent live baby — cannot and must not be taken away on a whim, due to the inconvenience it may cause them.

 

Abby Johnson, one of the youngest ever to head a Planned Parenthood clinic, had her come to Jesus moment at a time in her life, when she had already facilitated nearly 22,000 abortions. One day in October 2009, she was asked to assist in an abortion at the clinic in Texas. Here is her emotional testimony: “Ultimately I left [Planned Parenthood] after witnessing a live … procedure where I saw a thirteen week old baby fight and struggle for his life against the abortion instruments only to lose his life, and I knew there was humanity in the womb. I knew that for all these years I had essentially put the rights of the woman above the rights of the unborn child, and it became very clear to me in that moment that our rights should be equal — that one shouldn’t supersede the other.”

 

It is accurate to state that a newly created human being is human because it has its own very specific and unique DNA. Life begins at fertilization and any action that puts an end to human life is indisputably a homicide, not matter how cute, obtuse or disingenuous one wants to be on the topic. Unborn children are not property or parasites to be discarded at will.

 

It’s important to note here that Roe v. Wade is a 1973 lawless ruling by the Supreme Court that has been foisted upon a majority of states in stark contravention of actual laws that they passed. There is not one actual law in existence that states a woman has a right to an abortion, and nowhere does any such thing exist within the constitution, something the Supreme Court conceded in the Roe decision itself. The Court uncertainly concluded that any guarantee of personal privacy only extended to areas such as procreation, contraception and childrearing.

 

Shortly after Roe was delivered by the Court, John Hart Ely, a supporter of legalized abortion and a Harvard Law School professor, wrote: “Roe is bad … because it is not constitutional law and gives almost no sense of an obligation to try to be.”

 

Justice Blackmun offered no sound logic in support of his decision, and in the forty-six years since the Roe v. Wade ruling shoved its way into American society, no one has produced a convincing defense of Roe on its own terms and merit.

 

Before Roe v. Wade this issue fell to each respective state to determine democratically through the duly elected representatives. The Supreme Court’s dictate was erroneous on its face, and this judicial tyranny resulted in the circumvention of the will of the people at the time and the deprivation of the states’ authority and rights under the 9th and 10th Amendments, every bit as bad as if a despot had been in control of America.

 

Much of the precedence for our legal system emanates from English Common Law, and as such, we would be negligent if we didn’t note that many early U.S. lawyers such as Louis Brandeis and Sam Warren drew heavily on English Common Law in 1890, when they wrote the Right to Privacy. They revealed that William Blackstone, an English legal scholar whose words shaped our Declaration of Independence, declared specific rights for the unborn child writing: “Qui in utero, est pro jam nato habetur quoties de ejus commodo quaeritur: One who is in the womb is held as already born, whenever a question arises for its benefit.”

 

Currently, there are nearly twenty other states poised to act more stridently to ban abortion, and with recent changes in the membership of the Supreme Court, any challenges have a good chance to be struck down. It also appears that some states are purposefully crafting these laws precisely to see Roe v. Wade rescinded in the affirmative support for the life of the unborn child. Justices Clarence Thomas, Samuel Alito and Neil Gorsuch are probably the most certain pro-life Justices; in February of this year, Thomas wrote that Roe was among the Court’s “most notoriously incorrect decisions“, and he gave the 1857 decision of Dred Scott v. Sanford as another equally bad decision that said black slaves were property and not citizens.

 

People just don’t understand the Constitution, if they agree to submit to unconstitutional rulings, especially in light of the fact that the Supreme Court has admitted to being wrong over 300 times by reversing their own rulings. And more importantly, Americans no longer seem to understand their own divine nature having been created in the image of God.

 

I grew up understanding that all souls were known to God long before He gave Us our human form, by way of my dear Grandmother’s constant reminder as she recited Jeremiah 1:5 from the Old Testament: “Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you. Before you were born, I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.” Just as God knows and loves each of Us long before we are born, Americans, people everywhere, must learn to love the Unborn Child while he or she is still in the womb.

 

Americans must fight for the right of all human life to exist, despite the sad truth that a generation and a half have lived in America seeing legality as a basis for their morality, no matter how wrong or heinous the act. Abortion must be revealed for the morally reprehensible act it truly is, an act that has reduced medicine to tearing limbs from feeling beautiful unborn babies, while we also move American society towards ending the federal legality of abortion and returning the issue to the states.  Americans must stop killing babies for fear of poverty and any other rationalized false justification. We must protect our children in the streets and in the womb and stop this insane acceptance of infanticide, or surely one day face the wrath of God.
