Black Robed Tyranny Lives


There are God-Ordained Inalienable Rights that no man-made law authority over. Even so, the U.S. Constitution affirms Religious Liberty in the First Amendment. Now that the Supreme Court appears to join Dem-Marxists dedicated to ignoring God-Given and First Amendment memorialized Religious Liberty, I’m beginning to wonder why Christians would abide by Godless judicial impositions of law.

Black Robed Tyranny Lives

Religious Liberty: Some Things Are Self-Evident – A Violation of the First Freedom

 

By Justin O. Smith

Sent 8/1/2020 11:05 PM

 

Religious freedom and liberty is the First Freedom and an Inalienable Right granted all by God, enumerated in the Bill of Rights and sacrosanct, but somehow Chief Justice John Roberts, who is supposedly a conservative, barely bats an eye in casting the deciding vote for a ruling and a violation of this right, by which all others flow.

 

On July 24th 2020, [JOS]Roberts joined the four leftist Justices of the Supreme Court to deny the petition brought before the Court, to give Calvary Chapel in Dayton Valley, Nevada relief from Governor Steve Sisolak’s illegitimate and unconstitutional order, that limited attendance for the congregation to only 50 at a time — supposedly over Covid-19 concerns — despite allowing Nevada’s casinos to operate with hundreds of people flowing through its rooms and gaming arenas. And taken in total, this case actually represents one of the most blatant and overt attacks against Christianity and the Church that any American has witnessed in the course of American history, no matter the weak attempts to justify it by the weak, simpering backstabbing Chief Justice, who once again betrays his oath to the Constitution and America and dares to suggest he is upholding any rule of law.

 

The five justices handed out the majority 5-4 ruling in favor of Governor Sisolak and Nevada, and they chose not to write any opinion to explain their decision, probably due to the surreal nature any such explanation would hold in any attempt to defend the indefensible. However, it actually isn’t all that unusual, but their decision did draw three sharp dissents from the Court’s four conservative Justices.

 

Shortly after the ruling was revealed, Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) exclaimed: “John Roberts has abandoned his oath.”

 

In his own criticism of Roberts, Senator Tom Cotton (R-AR) stated: “Justice Roberts once again got it wrong, shamefully closing church doors to their flocks.”

 

Even the Editorial Board at the Wall Street Journal was left scratching its head on this one, since a normally reliable SCOTUS on matters of religious freedom was now missing in action. Liberal reporters too were baffled and had trouble explaining how Nevada’s churches could mount so strong a challenge to Sisolak’s illegitimate order and still lose.

 

Roberts acted in the same anti-First Amendment manner on May 29th 2020, when he also sided with the four Communist Horsemen of the Supreme Court to deny South Bay Pentecostal Church relief from Gov. Gavin Newsom’s illegal order, that held it to a different and more onerous standard than California’s similar secular businesses. His decision there and most recently with Cavalry Chapel were both wrong-headed and in absolute contravention of any moral interpretation of the Constitution and the law.

 

Some things are self-evident, as noted often by America’s Founders, and nothing should be more self-evident than one’s right to worship in a house of worship when and where one chooses, without the heavy hand of government interfering. This is especially important to both Christians and Jews as we find in Hebrews 10: 22-27 of the King James Bible, that reads:

 

Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water. Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; for He is faithful that promised; And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works; Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much more, as ye see the day approaching. For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins, But a certain fearful looking for of judgement and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries.”

 

Inalienable rights cannot be superseded or abrogated by any executive order, state legislation or federal order, since they pre-exist government and the Constitution, and any agreement to abide temporarily by any such order is only moral in a fair application across the board. In other words, what’s good for factories in California and casinos in Nevada is good for the Church. But that is not what we have witnessed.

 

Justice Brett Kavanaugh saw the Calvary Chapel case as straightforward, in his dissent, writing:

 

Nevada’s 50-person attendance cap on religious worship service puts praying at churches, synagogues, temples and mosques on worse footing than eating at restaurants, drinking at bars, gambling at casinos or biking at gyms. In other words, Nevada is discriminating against religion.

 

Rightfully so, lawyers for Calvary Chapel contended that Governor Sisolak’s order discriminated against churches and violated the First Amendment, writing in their brief: “This is a straightforward case. If the governor deems it acceptable for secular assemblies to occur at 50 percent capacity at casinos, restaurants, bars, gyms and fitness facilities, indoor and outdoor parks, bowling alleys, water parks, pools, arcades and more, he must apply the same 50 percent capacity rule to constitutionally protected worship services.”

 

[JOS]In his dissent, Justice Samuel Alito, one of the finest minds still on the Court, wrote:

 

That Nevada would discriminate in favor of the powerful gaming industry and its employees may not come as a surprise, but this Court’s willingness to allow such discrimination is disappointing. We have a duty to defend the Constitution and even a public health emergency does not absolve us of that responsibility. It says nothing about the freedom to play craps or blackjack, to feed tokens into a slot machine or to engage in any other game of chance.”

 

The executive order is so unbelievably biased against churches, that Governor Steve Sisolak reveals himself to be one of the most obscene and disgraceful faces of “the Government” and Big Brother. His order goes beyond the pale in its blatant disregard for the Church’s rights and its honest approach to worshiping in a responsible fashion. And so too does Chief Justice John Robert’s affirmation of Sisolak’s evil.

 

All the Church had asked was for the Governor to allow 90 parishioners rather than 50, in a church that holds 200. So, America bears witness to a mentally maladjusted, intellectual midget who is willing to allow thousands of people to pursue the hopes of fleeting riches through the inequities of gambling, while cracking the government whip on the Church for seeking to bring more of their brethren into their building in pursuit of a closer relationship to God.

 

In one sentence, Justice Alito nails the crux of the matter:

 

The idea that allowing Calvary Chapel to admit 90 worshipers present a greater public health risk than allowing casinos to operate at 50 percent capacity is hard to swallow, and the State’s efforts to justify the discrimination are feeble.”

 

During the course of the case, it was discovered that the Governor chose to disregard previous violations of his order by large masses of protesters. Not only did Gov. Sisolak not enforce his own directive, he actually supported and participated in at least one such protest, whereupon he shared a video of the protesters standing shoulder to shoulder. However, upon hearing that some churches might disregard the order, the State’s response from the attorney general came in part with a declarative statement that, “You can’t spit … in the face of law and not expect law to respond.”

 

What hypocrites. What anti-American hypocritical tyrants.

 

Of course all peaceful protests are protected too, by the First Amendment, but they are not any more important than Calvary Church’s Freedom of religion, and the State cannot favor one over another, since such a bias is anathema to the First Amendment, regardless of any imprimatur the Governor has given one in preference over the other. And it is still unconstitutional. [Blog Editor: Peaceful Protest is indeed a First Amendment Right BUT – rioting, looting, vandalism and other acts of violence are not First Amendment protected AND is NOT peaceful. Justin knows that, I just felt the need to reiterate it:

 

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.]

 

And Justice Neil Gorsuch concurred with Alito, writing:

 

In Nevada, it seems, it is better to be in entertainment than religion. … Maybe that is nothing new. But the First Amendment prohibits such obvious discrimination against the exercise of religion. The world we inhabit today, with the pandemic upon us, poses unusual challenges. But there is no world in which the Constitution permits Nevada to favor Caesars Palace over Calvary Chapel.”

 

Is it any wonder that America finds Herself in such dire straits, with Satan and the Enemy standing at Her gates? —  Disguised in many deceptive garbs and speaking many soothing, pleasing and beguiling manners.

 

Of some interest, Chief Justice Robert’s did somewhat explain his reasoning in his South Bay ruling, that may shed some light to his decision on Calvary Chapel. Unlike his associate Republican Justices, he tends to defer to democratically accountable officials during a public health crisis, and suggests the Court on the whole should also. However, one must note, from his rulings records, Roberts’s deference to “the politically accountable officials does not always move in favor of public health, or even democracy, as understood through the prism of republican governance, for that matter.

 

Roberts’s justification is lame as anything we will read this decade, and just as he had to jump through linguistic hoops to discover that Obamacare was a “tax” rather than an unconstitutional penalty, he has had to delve into a whole new Alice In Wonderland delusional alternative universe to negate and disregard the fundamental, inherent truth of the inalienable quality of our religious liberty, the First Freedom. His actions are inexcusable and unconscionable beyond anything any true American should ever hope to never see again.

 

The majority’s decision was worse than if they had simply set the case aside, since their ruling is tantamount to endorsing discrimination against the Church, pure and simple. In an unconscionable manner, this Court is failing in its constitutional responsibilities, and without rhyme or reason, their rulings have taken on an imperial tone, that is both dangerous and antithetical to the rule of law. And this Supreme Court is as close to Black Robed tyrants as America has ever seen, to date.

 

Chief Justice John Roberts has aligned himself with the adversaries of the very virtues, principles and righteous endeavors that stand between man’s freedom and tyranny, and still some attempt to hold him as a fine example of judiciary prudence. They excuse him in what they view as his attempt to prevent the American public from seeing the Court as a politicized body comprised of four Democrats and five Republicans, even though essentially that’s precisely what it is. And regardless of his intent, whether he is a purposeful closet liberal intent on advancing certain Marxist agendas, i.e. Obamacare, abortion and the deviant LGBTQ agenda, and seeks to be loved by Leftist America or he simply seeks to align the Court with the prevailing public opinion of the day, Chief Justice John Roberts is still ruling in ways, especially of late, that will have long reaching and long-lasting effects on America and undermine the rule of law, having the exact opposite effect he seeks, as all Americans who value truth and reality grow to see him as the betrayer of both.

 

And whenever any elected official holds before the people a “law” that is a malformed, cheap, imitation of anything remotely adhering to our founding principles, and it violates our Inalienable Rights in so egregious a manner as this, as un-Christian as it may seem to many, my own first initial response is to, in fact, spit square in the face of said “law” that is no law at all and fill the Church ’til its doors and windows pulsate with the Spirit of the Lord.

Two Big Wins Against CAIR in 24 Hours

September 19, 2019

Clarion Project

 

The Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) suffered two defeats in 24 hours thanks to a flood of public protest. Clarion Project was among numerous groups to apply pressure on both issues, working with local activists in Minnesota and collaborating with organizational allies to underscore the danger of allying with Islamists who have no belonging in spheres of human rights and human dignity.

 

First, as Clarion reported, CAIR’s Minnesota chapter was slated to be part of a panel discussing hate crimes in St. Cloud, Minnesota alongside the Minnesota Department of Human Rights, the St. Cloud police chief, and a FBI supervisory special agent. The panel was postponed at the 11th hour due to tremendous outpouring of calls, emails and material support including articles and social media traction.

 

Some of the evidence against CAIR-Minnesota that swayed the outcome was executive director Jaylani Hussein’s hostile shutdown of a city council meeting, demonstrating disinterest in civil discourse.

 

Second, CAIR San Francisco’s executive director, Zahra Billoo, was voted out of her new appointment on the board position of the Women’s March. Billoo was one of many new board members brought on in the wake of Linda Sarsour’s removal. Again, immense public pressure and outreach reversed that decision.

 

Billoo quickly took to Twitter in the late hours of the night to flesh out a thread accusing the Women’s March of being influenced by “right-wingers.” She also cited blame on an Islamophobic smear campaign rather than the long sordid pubic record of her vile anti-American and anti-Semitic views.

 

 

Two stunning defeats against Islamists like CAIR in such a short window is a testament to what we can achieve if work together.

 

This shows that it is possible to defeat Islamism outside of policy alone, including the long wait to declare the Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist organization.

 

In the interim, we can activate our networks, team up across organizations and make sure the public is equipped with the information they need to apply public pressure.

Next Step Church/State Separation Plague

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.

France Reaps Decades of Socialism and Open Borders


Brigitte Gabriel uses France’s current woes of Socialism, Islamic terrorism and Open Borders as an example of a warning to the United States of America.

France Reaps Decades of Socialism and Open Borders

 

By Brigitte Gabriel

Posted: Dec 14, 2018 2:28 PM

Townhall.com

 

Emmanuel Macron

 

As world leaders recently gathered in France to celebrate the centurion anniversary of the ending to World War I, French President Emmanuel Macron took it upon himself to attack President Trump, warning about the dangers of so-called “nationalism.”

 

The arrogance of a Western world leader using such a unifying event to attack the elected leader of one of his nation’s closest allies aside, Macron would’ve done well to keep his own house in order before lending advice.

 

Just weeks later, Paris was ablaze with violent mobs attacking police and vandalizing some of France’s most precious historical sites. The world-famous Arc de Triomphe was laced with graffiti by a generation poisoned and brainwashed with socialist ideology, never satisfied with what their government could give them.

 

France spent decades pushing the same anti-nationalist ideology on its citizens, glorifying the European Union and heavily taxing the wealthy to give to the poor. Combine this with France’s decades of open borders, reluctance to celebrate their own rich culture, Western values and contributions to the world, and you get an angry, self-loathing and even violent citizenry. Suddenly there’s no more wealth to tax, no more jobs to hand out and no more national identity.

 

Socialism has never worked in any part of the world in the entire history of civilization. Its consistent destruction of wealth, freedom and democracy has proven to be a recipe for national suicide. Combined with the open border policies that France embraced, you won’t just get poverty and civil unrest, but terrorism as well.

 

When I was a little girl, Beirut was dubbed “Paris of the Middle East.” Today, Paris is the Middle East of Europe and the “city of love,” has turned into the “city of chaos.” Decades of un-fettered immigration from the Middle East and North Africa has birthed sharia-ridden “no-go zones” and horrific terrorist attacks from the Charlie Hebdo massacre to the Paris bombings of 2015.

 

This type of radical transformation France has undergone is precisely what President Trump has been so desperately fighting against since his inauguration, with limited to no help from his own party.

 

As we march closer and closer toward a Democrat-controlled House of Representatives, time is running out on our nation’s ability to reverse course and protect itself from becoming like France—a nation with no unity, no identity and no safety.

 

We need not look all the way across the Atlantic to see what the future holds for our nation if it refuses to seal its southern border, grants amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants and continues to elect anti-American socialists to political positions of power. Just take a look at what unvetted immigration and socialism has done to the liberal haven of California over the past few decades.

 

Sanctuary cities such as San Francisco that provide safe haven for illegals such as Kate Steinle’s killer have become places of squalor, ridden with homelessness and filth. In fact, San Francisco’s streets are so filthy that an infectious disease expert recently placed it amongst some of the dirtiest cities in the entire world!

 

Recently, an investigative unit surveyed 153 blocks of San Francisco, in which it found countless mounds of trash and food lining the streets, at least 100 discarded needles, and wait for it, more than 300 piles of human feces.

 

This is San Francisco we’re talking about, not Mumbai.

 

By the way, it’s worth pointing out that one of San Francisco’s congressional representatives happens to be none other than soon-to-be Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, who is vehemently opposed to a wall. Good to know Ms. Pelosi has her priorities in order.

 

Taxes are through the roof in the “Golden State,” prompting many businesses to move to more free-market friendly locations such as Texas or Florida. As wealth continues to leave the state, the taxes will inevitably climb even higher, as lawmakers attempt to keep their constituents as well as illegals happy. Sooner or later, there won’t be enough wealth to tax, and the state will be bankrupt. The result of this will likely be violence, vandalism and chaos on a scale even larger than what we’re witnessing in Paris.

 

The solution to all of this? America first.

 

Wait, you mean, “nationalism?”

 

Let the leftist fools like Macron, who currently enjoys an approval rating of less than 20 percent in his own nation, call it whatever they want. It’s time to do what’s best for America and its people.

 

It’s time to build a wall to protect not only our citizens but our identity, and it’s time to call socialism what it is—an evil and destructive, anti-American ideology that has led to nothing but poverty and disaster wherever it raises its poisonous head.

 

America is and should always remain a capitalist nation that defends its borders and celebrates its national identity and Judeo-Christian values. As proven by France’s continued fall from grace, failure to do so will result in cultural, economic and political destruction.

I have been seeing Social Media posts claiming California has legislation in the works to ban the Bible. I chalked the information up to Fake News or maybe – cough – Russian bots trying to rile up Conservative Values supporters.

 

After all, how in the world can secularist and/or atheist Lefties believe they can get away with such a huge violation of the First Amendment, RIGHT?

 

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. (U.S. Constitution – Amendment 1; USConstitution.net)

 

Ever heard of the book Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury? The book is one of my favorites from my Sci-Fi teen reading days. It should be bought and become required reading for every household to understand the power of State totalitarianism. The book is classic with a 1966 movie based on it AND HBO is coming out with a modern version I believe sometime in May 2018. Here is a less than a minute trailer:

Perhaps the Leftist legislators will ban Fahrenheit 451 along with the Bible to make sure their citizens remain ignorant of political totalitarianism.

 

Before you pooh-pooh the idea of the California State legislators banning books, here is the Assembly Bill No. 2943 California Legislative Information published 03/23/2018 09:00 PM.

 

The Bill no where mentions the Bible or the morality of the Christian Faith. However, using commercial practices as a pretext AB 2943 declares all things associated with the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer (LGBTQ) lifestyle is a part of the natural order of existence. Thus, the law prohibits any action to change the LGBTQ lifestyle as illegal. I was going to cross post the entirety of AB 2943, then I realized after copying the Act to a separate Word Document that consumed 18 pages, the reading would be a bit mundane. Here is a relevant excerpt affecting Freedom:

 

AB 2943, as amended, Low. Unlawful business practices: sexual orientation change efforts.

 

 

This bill would include, as an unlawful practice prohibited under the Consumer Legal Remedies Act, advertising, offering to engage in, or engaging in sexual orientation change efforts with an individual. The bill would also declare the intent of the Legislature in this regard.

 

 

SECTION 1.

 

The Legislature finds and declares the following:

 

(a) Contemporary science recognizes that being lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender is part of the natural spectrum of human identity and is not a disease, disorder, or illness.

 

(b) The American Psychological Association convened the Task Force on Appropriate Therapeutic Responses to Sexual Orientation. The task force conducted a systematic review of peer-reviewed journal literature on sexual orientation change efforts and issued a report in 2009. The task force concluded that sexual orientation change efforts can pose critical health risks to lesbian, gay, and bisexual people, including confusion, depression, guilt, helplessness, hopelessness, shame, social withdrawal, suicidality, substance abuse, stress, disappointment, self-blame, decreased self-esteem and authenticity to others, increased self-hatred, hostility and blame toward parents, feelings of anger and betrayal, loss of friends and potential romantic partners, problems in sexual and emotional intimacy, sexual dysfunction, high-risk sexual behaviors, a feeling of being dehumanized and untrue to self, a loss of faith, and a sense of having wasted time and resources.

 

AB 2943 goes on as pertaining to the LGBTQ lifestyle, to verify LGBTQ morality protections and villainize (perhaps illegalize) Biblical Values by using numerous Leftist social organizations declaring homosexual choice as normal. You can muddle through the entire Bill to read what I mean. Just to be clear, there are some good consumer protections in the Bill pertaining to commerce. The good is heavily obscured though by the intent to make it easy to sue distributors of Christian materials – which would include the Bible – that homosexuality is natural rather an unnatural abomination as stated by the Creator of all that exists.

 

When the Leftist legislators cite all these Leftist organization that embrace the fundamental transformation of America, they don’t include the kind of people that were in charge of their reports and findings. Here are some details they conveniently left out:

 

This article first appeared in the CHRISTIAN RESEARCH JOURNAL, volume 38, number 01 (2015). The full text of this article in PDF format can be obtained by clicking here.

 

SYNOPSIS

 

“Reparative therapy,” “conversion therapy,” and “sexual orientation change efforts” (SOCE) are terms used to describe any efforts to redirect homosexual tendencies toward heterosexual behavior. These processes are strongly opposed by organizations such as the American Psychiatric Association and other counseling groups. The opposition to SOCE approaches is based on three assumptions these groups make. (1) Homosexuality is today considered a normal variant of sexual behavior and not a mental illness. (2) There are no good data to indicate that SOCE approaches have been successful. (3) Traditional religious prohibitions about homosexual behavior are outmoded and need to be revised to be in accordance with modern science. Proponents of SOCE argue that there have been many successes in changing homosexual behavior and desires in a number of individuals. [Bold text by Blog Editor]

 

Professional groups argue that there are no good peer- reviewed studies, but also prohibit their members from being involved in these studies. Policy statements attacking these treatments are not written by an unbiased group; one major statement was written by a team that (with one exception) were all homosexual or bisexual, with all members of the team being well-known homosexual activists.  …

 

 

A 2009 report issued by the American Psychological Association8 restated the organization’s opposition to SOCE efforts and left the impression that this was an impartial and unbiased report. The truth is far different: of the seven members on the task force, five were openly homosexual, one was bisexual, and all seven were active in the “gay rights” movement.9 The composition of the group created an obvious and overwhelming bias toward a homosexual-friendly report. Appropriate Therapeutic Responses dismisses any religious considerations, looks only at peer-reviewed literature that supports their position, and recommends only therapy that encourages acceptance of homosexual behavior.

This is NOT FAKE NEWS: California Pushing Bill to Ban Sale of Bibles (Video)

Absolute Truth from the Word of God

 

Not only are California legislators pushing the bill to ban the sale of Bibles, they are also targeting any Christian books which speak against homosexuality and how to overcome the urges of that lifestyle.

 

From 1.cbn.com

 

One Step Closer to Law: Could a California Bill Ultimately Lead to the Banning of Bibles?

 

VIDEO: URGENT! CALIFORNIA PUSHES BILL TO BAN THE BIBLE AND MATERIAL THAT STATES HOMOSEXUALITY IS A SIN!!!

 

Posted by Salt of the Earth 777

Published on Apr 20, 2018

 

California bill would criminalize the sale of Bibles and material considered to be offensive to the homosexual community.

 

A pro-LGBTQ bill is quickly making its way through the California state assembly after it was approved on the floor Thursday. The bill now goes to the state Senate for a vote.

 

If passed, Assembly Bill 2943 could ultimately threaten free speech and freedom of religion for Christians.

 

It uses the state’s consumer fraud statute to restrict religious freedom and free speech when it comes to issues of homosexuality and gender identity.

 

This means the bill would make it illegal to distribute resources, sell books, offer counseling services, or direct someone to a biblically based model for getting help with gender confusion and homosexuality.

 

Randy Thomasson with SaveCalifornia.com says the bill is very broad and could affect just about anything helping people overcome same-sex desires.

 

“So, this is a pastor speaking, you pay a ticket to hear him speak. He speaks about overcoming same-sex desires. Hey, that could be outlawed. A church sells a book about overcoming same-sex desires. There’s a sale, there’s a transaction, that could be banned,” Thomasson said.

 

“This is very expansive, very tyrannical and absolutely squashing free speech, religious freedom and basic choice of people. This is an anti-freedom, anti-American bill,” Thomasson told CBN News.

 

Essentially, churches and Christian schools that share biblical teaching on the subject would be open to a lawsuit.

 

CBN News asked Thomasson if this bill could eventually lead to a ban on Bibles or even books from other faiths like the Koran.

 

“Well, you could see this law going into effect. A church bookstore selling the Bible, of course, selling a book about marriage or sexual purity or overcoming homosexuality or overcoming trans-sexuality. You could see a member of the public or even a member of the state government coming and saying, ‘Hey, that’s illegal,’” Thomasson answered.

 

“Even the Muslim community should be against this, too, because of what is said about sexual perversity in the Koran,” Thomasson also said.

 

If AB 2943 clears California’s Senate and is signed into law, it would negatively impact Christian counselors, bookstores, church conferences, as well as medical and health professionals.

 

The bill also seeks to ban biblically based counseling for those wanting to get help.

 

It comes six years after California deemed it illegal for minors to receive counseling for same-sex attraction, even if they and their parents wanted help. Now, this bill would also address adults.

 

“AB 2943 would start by saying, ok, nobody can get counseling to overcome same-sex desires… ok, so no help for adult children, adults who were molested as kids and now they are adults and they say I want help to overcome these feelings. No help for you,” Thomasson explained.

 

The bill states that “contemporary science recognizes that being lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender is part of the natural spectrum of human identity and is not a disease, disorder, or illness.”

 

Mat Staver, founder and chairman of Liberty Counsel, told CBN News that what makes this bill especially dangerous is that California often leads the charge in pushing the LGBTQ legislative agenda.

 

California was one of the first states to ban “conversion therapy” for minors. Shortly afterward, Oregon, New Jersey, and Vermont passed similar laws.

 

“People have the right to seek the counsel of their choice, but this bill substitutes the government for personal choice. The implications are staggering, and the result is harmful,” Staver said in a statement to CBN News. – source

 

So, will they ban the Qur’an as well??

 

Come Lord Jesus!

California: Privacy Trumps Human Life


John R. Houk

© March 30, 2017

 

About a half-a-year ago, the Center for Medical Progress (CMP) under the auspices David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt exposed Planned Parenthood not only as a baby-killing factory but also as an agent for selling murdered baby parts to research organization illegally. The thing that makes Planned Parenthood heinous is that babies had to be born intact for the most precious baby parts. Intact means born alive then killed.

 

Even though Planned Parenthood committed the crimes, it was Daleiden and Merritt that were charged – first in Texas and now in California.

 

The Texas charges were dropped after it became obvious pro-Dem Party prosecutors tainted a Grand Jury to indict them. NOW, under similar corrupt circumstances, California Attorney General Xavier Becerra (who replaced another corrupt CA AG that went after CMP undercover operators) is another corrupt AG with ties to Planned Parenthood.

 

Evidently California has made it easy for criminals to commit crimes by passing privacy laws that mandate a citizen cannot be recorded with prior authorization. HENCE, a private citizen cannot get the goods on a criminal or criminals for breaking the law.

 

If you trust more in Biblical Morality than Secular Humanism then you understand Planned Parenthood and all people that believe a woman has a greater right to choose baby-killing more than an unborn person has a right to life, then you should tune into the Sixth Commandment:

 

13 “You shall not murder. (Exodus 20: 13 NKJV)

 

When governments enforce the laws of man over God’s Commandments, you know there is a cultural degradation in America.

 

Who is responsible for this cultural degradation? Left Wing Democrats that first fundamentally transformed America in stealth via activist Judges then down right out in the open under eight years of the Obama Administration.

 

Below is a press releases I received by email from Operation Rescue. Then I have some information from Legal Insurrection and The Blaze.

 

Get informed. Get annoyed. DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT!

California AG Files Politically Motivated Charges Against Daleiden and Merritt

 

From Operation Rescue

Sent March 29, 2017 8:40 AM

 

Sacramento, CA – Late yesterday, California Attorney General Xavier Becerra charged pro-life investigative journalists David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt of the Center for Medical Progress with 15 felony counts related to secret recordings they made that provided evidence of Planned Parenthood’s participation in the illegal trafficking of aborted baby remains.

 

In 2016, Daleiden and Merritt were indicted by a tainted grand jury on similar charges, which were later dismissed after evidence surfaced that the Harris County District Attorney’s office had colluded with Planned Parenthood for political reasons to turn the grand jury against the pro-life activists.

 

“Just as corruption was involved in the last attempt to falsely charge David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt, I predict that corruption is at the heart of these California charges as well. It is despicable that the California Attorney General charged innocent whistleblowers with felonies instead of the career criminals at Planned Parenthood. This is the ultimate abuse of power and tyranny. The Planned Parenthood butchers have committed tens of thousands of felonies by illegally selling baby’s body parts for profit,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue who also served as a founding member of the board for the Center for Medical Progress.

 

Newman was not mentioned in the charging documents.

 

It is believed that the California charges are in retaliation to criminal referrals of several Planned Parenthood organizations to the U.S. Department of Justice by the Senate Judiciary Committee and the House Select Investigative Panel on Infant Lives.

 

“We call on U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions to aggressively prosecute Planned Parenthood and their partners in the illegal aborted baby parts trade,” said Cheryl Sullenger, Senior Vice President of Operation Rescue. “We ask that Attorney General Sessions resist any intimidation by California authorities who are simply acting as Democratic operatives on a political agenda to thwart any prosecution of Planned Parenthood.”

 

In response to the charges, Daleiden has released a new video that features Planned Parenthood executives making statements that further illustrate their involvement in the illicit trade of aborted baby remains.

California’s AG Charges Undercover Reporters Who Exposed Planned Parenthood Baby Part Selling

 

By Kemberlee Kaye

March 29, 2017 at 1:30pm

Legal Insurrection

 

Late Tuesday night, California’s Attorney General charged David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt with a whopping fifteen felonies.

 

Daleiden and Merritt, by way of the Center for Medical Progress (CMP), released several horrifying undercover videos exposing Planned Parenthood officials negotiating the price of aborted baby parts.

 

California is a two-party consent state, meaning both parties in any recording must consent to be recorded. 14 of the 15 charges are for recording confidential conversations without consent. The last is for conspiracy to commit a felony by recording private conversations at a conference.

 

Placing the two-party consent nonsense on hold for a moment, Daleiden and Merritt made two errors through the course of their investigation, one of which was omitted from the charges levied against them.

 

1) creating and using fake IDs

2) using an expired employee ID to login to Stem Expresses system

 

The former was not included, the latter was cited in the 15th felony charge.

 

Pretending to be a fictitious person is not a crime. Neither is creating a fake organization. The sale or purchase of fetal tissue, though (should it interfere with interstate commerce), that’s a federal felony. We’re not holding our breath for any AG to file charges against those who were captured on video discussing the sale of dismembered babies.

 

CMP’s series of undercover videos lead to a Congressional investigation in which Cecile Richards, Planned Parenthood President, referred to the conversations as “non-confidential.”

Congressman Jim Jordan (R-OH) got into a heated debate with Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards during a Congressional hearing earlier this week.

Jordan wanted to know why Richards, just a few days after watching one of the Planned Parenthood videos which showed high-ranking officials bartering over baby parts, issued an apology.

Jordan repeatedly asked “Why did you apologize?”

 

David Daleiden

@daviddaleiden

 

Bogus charges. @PPact @CecileRichards said under oath, taped convos NOT “confidential”…we call her as 1st witness?

 

11:28 PM – 28 Mar 2017

 

The media should be rushing to defend Daldeiden [sic] and Merritt against these clearly politically wrought charges. And yet…

 

Some of the best reporting from the last century has been done undercover. Shows like Dateline and To Catch a Predator were predicated on using undercover tactics and ruses to either expose wrongdoing or bait would-be wrong doers.

 

In what seems like a lifetime ago, I worked with James O’Keefe and his undercover investigative outfit, Project Veritas. I recruited and coached undercover vidoegraphers [sic] across the country. One of our biggest considerations in every investigation was “is this legal?” I worked extensively with our attornies and videographers on the legal boundaries of recording and investigating. A case that came up regularly in our guidance was Medical Laboratory Consultants vs. American Broadcasting Companies (2002). In this case, the 9th circuit held that undercover, hidden camera investigations in medical labs were not an invasion of privacy.

 

As to the conference Daleiden and Merritt attended and recorded, we worked on several different investigations in two-party consent states where attending a conference was either part of the investigation or was the investigation. Guidance was always the same — if there is an announcement, either written or oral at a conference that sessions and general conference going would be recorded, then there is no expectation of privacy and hidden camera reporting would likely pass legal scrutiny.

 

David Daleiden

@daviddaleiden

 

The last time @PPact colluded with political cronies to persecute citizen journalists, both charges AND corrupt DA thrown out! BRING IT ON!!

 

9:30 PM – 28 Mar 2017

 

Daleiden further responded to the charges by releasing yet another undercover video, and arguably the most sickening one to date, showing Planned Parenthood officials discussing dismemberment abortions and killing newborns:

 

SAME VIDEO AS ABOVE

 

At a networking reception at a Planned Parenthood conference, CMP investigators posing as buyers from a biotech company are introduced to Dr. Taylor by Dr. Deborah Nucatola, Planned Parenthood Federation of America’s Senior Director of Medical Services.

 

Dr. Taylor confirms she does elective abortions on healthy fetuses and pregnant women up to 24 weeks. When the investigators ask her about obtaining intact fetal organs, Dr. Taylor replies, “It’s not a matter of how I feel about it coming out intact, but I gotta worry about my staff and people’s feelings about it coming out looking like a baby.”

 

She continues, “We have the people who do our paperwork for the fetal death certificates, they email us calling them ‘babies’. Baby this, baby that, baby so-and-so, and I’m like, that’s creepy!”

 

Dr. Taylor explains to the investigators, “In Arizona, if the fetus comes out with any signs of life, we’re supposed to transport it. To the hospital.” When one investigator then asks, “Is there any standard procedure for verifying signs of life?” Dr. Taylor replies, “Well, the thing is, I mean the key is, you need to pay attention to who’s in the room, right?”

 

Dr. Taylor then laughs as she repeats what the Arizona law requires, and says, “It’s a mess. It’s a mess.”

 

Dr. Taylor acknowledges that the feticidal chemical digoxin cannot be used in an abortion where fetal body parts will be harvested for sale, but she remarks that in a standard dismemberment dilation and evacuation abortion, “My biceps appreciate when the dig[oxin] works,” to kill the fetus before the procedure. “I remember when I was a [Family Planning] Fellow and I was training, I was like, Oh, I have to hit the gym for this,” she says, describing the force she feels in her biceps when performing a dismemberment abortion with forceps.

 

Charges filed against Daldeiden [sic] for in Texas were dropped last summer.

 

Shortly after Daleiden released the latest undercover video, the 9th circuit granted the National Abortion Federation a preliminary injunction, “prohibiting Biomax Procurement Services LLC, the Center for Medical Progress (CMP), David Daleiden, and Troy Newman from releasing recordings and materials they illegally obtained at NAF’s educational meetings.”

 

CMP

@CtrMedProgress

 

CMP will fight unconstitutional gag order on the remaining damning and incriminating videos of @PPact @NatAbortionFed #PeskyFirstAmendment

 

 

12:42 PM – 29 Mar 2017

 

California’s AG may hope to punish Daleiden and Merritt for exposing the disgusting underbelly of Planned Parenthood, but ultimately, it will embolden life and speech advocates nationwide.

California AG who charged pro-life filmmakers accepted thousands of dollars from Planned Parenthood

 

By Kate Scanlon

Mar 29, 2017 5:13 pm

The Blaze

California Attorney General Xavier Becerra, a Democrat who filed 15 felony charges against pro-life filmmakers Tuesday, previously accepted thousands of dollars in campaign contributions from Planned Parenthood during his congressional campaigns.

 

Becerra announced Tuesday that the state had filed charges against David Daleiden, the founder of The Center for Medical Progress, and his associate, Sandra Merritt, for their roles in the release of a series of undercover videos that showed Planned Parenthood employees appearing to negotiate the price of aborted fetal body parts.

 

Profiting from the sale of human body parts — including those of the unborn — is illegal under federal law. Planned Parenthood denied illegal conduct and applauded the indictment of the pro-life filmmakers.

 

 

According to the Washington Examiner, Becerra, who previously served in the House of Representatives, received campaign contributions from Planned Parenthood during his congressional campaigns. Data from the Center for Responsive Politics shows that Becerra received $2,000 from Planned Parenthood during his 2012 campaign, and $1,000 in 2014.

 

When Becerra was appointed to be California’s attorney general by the state’s Gov. Jerry Brown (D) late last year, Planned Parenthood released a statement praising him as “a long-time champion for women’s reproductive rights and health.”

 

Becerra’s predecessor, Kamala Harris, who now represents California as a Democrat in the U.S. Senate, received $2,600 from Planned Parenthood during her 2016 Senate campaign, according to data from the Center for Responsive Politics.

 

Harris had a history of working on behalf of Planned Parenthood’s agenda.

 

As attorney general, she spearheaded an investigation into The Center for Medical Progress. Daleiden said last April that Harris’ office raided his home and seized his video footage.

 

Emails obtained by the Washington Times in September showed that Harris’ office also collaborated with Planned Parenthood to draft legislation criminalizing the recording or distribution of a private conversation with a health care provider, targeting The Center for Medical Progress. The emails showed a Harris staffer asking Beth Parker, chief legal counsel for Planned Parenthood Affiliates of California, to review the text of the bill.

 

The bill was signed into law by Brown.

 

Harris vowed to defend Planned Parenthood as a senator and urged supporters to sign a petition in defense of the group on her campaign website.

 

The Washington Free Beacon reported that both attorneys general received thousands of additional funds from other pro-choice groups allied with Planned Parenthood during their congressional campaigns.

 

Becerra’s office did not immediately respond to TheBlaze’s request for comment about the campaign contributions.

 

Daleiden’s attorney, Tom Brejcha, who is also president and chief counsel of the Thomas More Society, said in a statement provided to TheBlaze, “When it comes to felony charges against our client, David Daleiden, history is on our side.”

 

“When David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt were falsely charged in Texas, after they mounted a vigorous defense, the charges were abruptly dropped. We expect that the same will prove true in California,” Brejcha said.

 

Lila Rose, the president and founder of the pro-life group Live Action, which has also released undercover footage of Planned Parenthood employees, said in a statement that “using state power to attack citizen journalists who expose crimes against the defenseless is a severe miscarriage of justice”:

 

The real criminal is Planned Parenthood, not David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt. The Center for Medical Progress did a tremendous service by exposing the barbaric baby parts trafficking that Planned Parenthood had kept hidden behind closed doors. They should be lauded for their brave work, not punished.

 

California’s last two pro-abortion attorneys general have yet to investigate Planned Parenthood after two congressional committees found significant evidence that it may have broken the law with its baby parts trafficking scheme. Similar charges against David and Sandra were dropped in Texas months ago, yet Mr. Becerra insists on punishing them and putting his political agenda ahead of the laws that he was sworn to uphold.

Pro-Life Rally Will Call for Kamala Harris’ Resignation After She Raids David Daleiden’s Home


David Daleiden

David Daleiden

 

Last week I shared a CNSNews.com story about California State Attorney General Kamala Harris ordering and executing a search warrant of David Daleiden’s private residence fishing for more video footage of his exposé of the Planned Parenthood marketing of born alive then murdering babies for their anatomical body parts. Characteristically of America’s Left dominated justice system the courts actually went after Daleiden rather than the evils of Planned Parenthood breaking the law. Daleiden and Sandra Merritt were indicted in Houston Texas under the Grand Jury guidance of another Left Wing Texas State Prosecutor Devon Anderson followed her corrupt Planned Parenthood connections.

 

 

Kamala Harris Dem Party

Kamala Harris – a Dem Political Hack

 

Kamala Harris’ search team absconded with previously unreleased video footage  of Planned Parenthood nefarious activities. You have to ask, “To what end was a search warrant issued since no indictment in California has occurred nor a stated reason for the search? Planned Parenthood was caught in extra-legal activities and they search Daleiden’s place.”

 

Why haven’t State and Federal authorities exhaustively investigated Planned Parenthood for trafficking organ parts taken from living individuals? Even to a Leftist, doesn’t an unborn baby become a legal living person if born alive? I believe abortion is murder, but for God’s sake aren’t all children after a live-birth a legal person with Constitutional protections under the rule of law? David Daleiden and the Center for Medical Progress team members that exposed this illegal practice should be given ticker-tape parades around the major cities of America. AND NOT PERSECUTED WITH PROSECUTION!

Pro-Life Rally Will Call for Kamala Harris’ Resignation After She Raids David Daleiden’s Home

Korrupt Kamala

After pro-abortion California Attorney General Kamala Harris stole unreleased video footage concerning Planned Parenthood during a raid on the home of David Daleiden, the director of the Center for Medical Progress, pro-life groups called for her resignation. Now they’re leading a rally at her office to continue that call.

 

California authorities seized a laptop and hard drives containing the video footage collected during Daleiden’s 3-year investigation of Planned Parenthood’s involvement in the illegal sale of aborted baby remains, according to a written statement made by Life Legal Defense Foundation, which is helping to defend Daleiden.

 

Harris, a pro-abortion Democrat, chose to focus her investigation on Daleiden and his associates rather than Planned Parenthood, even though the video footage so far released by Daleiden’s Center for Medical Progress shows clear evidence that Planned Parenthood was illegally altering abortion procedures to endure intact organs targeted for harvesting then selling the organs for profit.

 

Since the California Department of Justice, under the leadership of Democratic State Attorney General Kamala Harris, searched the home of David Daleiden, there have been numerous news stories noting an apparent conflict of interest in Harris’ investigation of Daleiden and the Center for Medical Progress that ignores obvious evidence of illegal conduct on the part of Planned Parenthood.

 

Planned Parenthood has donated $81,000 to Harris and, because of the massive conflict of interest, pro-life groups are calling for her resignation.

 

Now, pro-life groups are protesting at Harris’ office in Sacramento and Kristan Hawkins of Students for Life of America says pro-life students will be leading the way.

“Instead of standing for the preborn in California and investigating Planned Parenthood’s trafficking of aborted baby parts, Kamala Harris has decided to stand with the abortion industry and has set out on a mission to hurt David and make an example out of him, to scare pro-lifers and other journalists into never questioning what goes on behind the closed and federally protected doors of Planned Parenthood,” she said. “It’s corrupt, despicable, and a threat to any pro-lifer or citizen journalist out there who wants to expose truth.”

 

“We have to show the national media and the state of California that our movement stands with David, now more than ever, and we aren’t going to let their corrupt officials get away with it,” Hawkins said. “And this standing for David needs to be more than a Facebook post or petition. We need to be there in person, showing Kamala Harris that we aren’t afraid of her or her cronies at Planned Parenthood.”

 

“We are going to fill a bus today with students from Students for Life groups all over the Northwest. They are going to drive through the night and arrive in Sacramento tomorrow, Wednesday, April 13th,” she added. “At 11am on April 13th, the pro-life generation is going to stand in front of the Attorney General’s office and demand that she resign immediately.

 

Brian Johnston of California Pro-Life Council joined in criticizing Harris.

 

“Last year, David Daleiden’s videos of Planned Parenthood officials arranging the sale of human organs from aborted children stunned the world. While seven other state’s Attorneys General launched investigations into the PP actions in their states our state’s ‘top cop’ decided to do the opposite,” he said.

 

“She ignored PP’s macabre actions and instead decided to pursue and silence the investigator! At that time we knew of at least several sizable-political donations directly from PP to Harris. Since then more than $80,000 of PP political donations to the AG have been revealed. Her campaign web-site even includes a ‘petition of support’ for Planned Parenthood,” he added.

 

Johnson is also supporting the rally: “On Weds. April 13 there will be a rally and demonstration in front of the AG’s Sacramento office protesting the heavy-handed use of government powers for the political purposes of this campaigning, abortion ideologue.”

What happens when you are a moral person exposing baby-killers who murder legally but illegally perform a live-birth then kill the child for more viable baby body-parts to sell to researchers?

 

This is what happens: the moral person is persecuted by a Left oriented legal system protecting the baby-killing industry. Ask David Daleiden of the Center for Medical Progress.

California Authorities Raid Home of Man Who Shot Undercover Planned Parenthood Videos

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — An anti-abortion activist who made undercover videos at Planned Parenthood clinics said in a social media posting that California Department of Justice agents raided his home Tuesday.

 

Agents seized all video footage from his apartment, along with his personal information, David Daleiden said in a Facebook post. Daleiden, the founder of a group called the Center for Medical Progress, said agents left behind documents that he contends implicate Planned Parenthood in illegal behavior related to the handling of fetal tissue.

 

Center for Medical Progress spokesman Peter Robbio confirmed the social media posting is authentic, but he declined further comment. He said Daleiden lives in Orange County.

 

Rachele Huennekens, a spokeswoman for state Attorney General Kamala Harris, said in an email that she can’t comment on any ongoing investigation.

 

Harris said in July that she planned to review the undercover videos to see if center violated any state charity registration or reporting requirements. She said that could include whether Daleiden and a colleague impersonated representatives of a fake biomedical company or filmed the videos without Planned Parenthood’s consent.

 

Harris, a Democrat, is running for the U.S. Senate. Daleiden suggested in the social media posting that the raid was politically motivated because Harris has accepted campaign contributions from Planned Parenthood.

 

Daleiden faces related charges in Texas. One of his Texas attorneys, Terry Yates, did not return telephone and email messages Tuesday.

 

Texas authorities initially began a grand jury investigation of Planned Parenthood after the undercover videos were released in August.

 

But the grand jury cleared Planned Parenthood of misusing fetal tissue and indicted Daleiden and a colleague, Sandra Merritt, in January on charges including using fake driver’s licenses to get into a Houston clinic.

 

Daleiden previously said his group followed the law in making the videos. His post Tuesday called the raid an “attack on citizen journalism” and said he will “pursue all remedies to vindicate our First Amendment rights.”

SCOTUS Continues to Push America into Ungodliness

Thanks to the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) America slides deeper and further away from God’s Word on homosexuality. That essentially is a part of the “Change” promised by the Deceiver-in-Chief Obama to extricate the influence of Christian Morality from influencing American culture.

 

I haven’t read the majority and the dissent in which SCOTUS struck down the portions of Defense of Marriage ACT (DOMA) pertaining to States that have legalized same-sex marriage. THEN SCOTUS ruled that the private organization (ProtectMarriage.com) defending California’s Proposition 8 which made same-sex marriage illegal in California DID NOT HAVE STANDING to defend State legislation.

 

In the case of California in which the Leftist Democrats love the abomination of homosexuality against the will of California voters and the State government refused to protect the will of California voters it means the 9th Appellate Court decision vacating Prop. 8 is vacated but that the original Court in California that vacated Prop. 8 is upheld. The experts I heard on Fox News seemed to think that ends litigation pertaining to Prop. 8 since ONLY the California State government has standing to defend the Proposition 8’s legality in the Appellate and SCOTUS level of the Federal Courts.

 

No matter how you look at it, the Supreme Court has ruled that the Word of God pertaining to homosexuality is UNCONSTITUTIONAL! God have mercy on the Americans that stand on the Word of God but are now coerced by the American rule of law to accept homosexuality as normal and legal. Biblical believing Christians are now in the potential situation of criminal and civil actions being enforced against them if they refuse to service anything to do with same-sex marriage.

 

The five Justices that struck down portions of DOMA extricated their opinion from the Fifth Amendment that came into existence as part of the Bill of Rights (first ten Amendments) to give specificity to the Rights of American citizens. What do you think that the Founding Fathers would have thought of using the Fifth Amendment to validate homosexual rights despite God’s Word declaring same-acts as IMMORAL?

 

Fifth Amendment

 

No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a grand jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the militia, when in actual service in time of war or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offense to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.

 

I am not seeing the dispensation of civil rights to immoral homosexuals.

 

God’s Word on Homosexuality

 

1 Now the two angels came to Sodom in the evening, and Lot was sitting in the gate of Sodom. When Lot saw them, he rose to meet them, and he bowed himself with his face toward the ground.

 

4 Now before they lay down, the men of the city, the men of Sodom, both old and young, all the people from every quarter, surrounded the house. 5 And they called to Lot and said to him, “Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us that we may know them carnally.

 

6 So Lot went out to them through the doorway, shut the door behind him, 7 and said, “Please, my brethren, do not do so wickedly! 8 See now, I have two daughters who have not known a man; please, let me bring them out to you, and you may do to them as you wish; only do nothing to these men, since this is the reason they have come under the shadow of my roof.”

 

9 And they said, “Stand back!” Then they said, “This one came in to stay here, and he keeps acting as a judge; now we will deal worse with you than with them.” So they pressed hard against the man Lot, and came near to break down the door. 10 But the men reached out their hands and pulled Lot into the house with them, and shut the door. 11 And they struck the men who were at the doorway of the house with blindness, both small and great, so that they became weary trying to find the door.

 

13 For we will destroy this place, because the outcry against them has grown great before the face of the Lord, and the Lord has sent us to destroy it.”

 

24 Then the Lord rained brimstone and fire on Sodom and Gomorrah, from the Lord out of the heavens. 25 So He overthrew those cities, all the plain, all the inhabitants of the cities, and what grew on the ground. (Bold Emphasis Mine – Gen. 19: 1, 4-11, 13, 24-25 NKJV)

 

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.

 

24 ‘Do not defile yourselves with any of these things; for by all these the nations are defiled, which I am casting out before you. 25 For the land is defiled; therefore I visit the punishment of its iniquity upon it, and the land vomits out its inhabitants. (Bold Emphasis Mine – I added verse 23 so there is an understanding of the level of “perversion” God views homosexuality Lev. 18: 22-25 NKJV)

 

13 If a man lies with a male as he lies with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination. They shall surely be put to death. Their blood shall be upon them. (Bold Emphasis Mine – Lev. 20: 13 NKJV)

 

Homosexual Activists and Apologists are big to point out that Lev. 20:13 calls the penalty of Law for homosexuality is death. How wrong is this in modern society, right? I don’t know how Jews have updated this Scripture from the Torah – which is the Pentateuch of the Old Testament to us Christians – But the update in Christianity is the Blood of Christ from His death, burial and Resurrection delivers any Believer in Christ’s Redemptive ACT from the penalty of the Law in this life. In the resurrection of all the dead there will be a time that dead people face the Last Judgment. It is in the Last Judgment where the hearts of men (all people for you politically correct dudes) are expressly known in which people choose unrepentant sin of faith in Christ. The unrepentant will judged with a penalty according to their sin and sent to the appropriate chamber of Hell which I believe is ultimately the Lake of Fire – always burning in pain but never ceasing from an existence of eternal punishment. The unrepentant homosexual still faces the penalty of death in the Law; however not in this life but in the next life.

 

1 Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have[a] peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, 2 through whom also we have access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.

 

6 For when we were still without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly.

 

8 But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. 9 Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from wrath through Him. 10 For if when we were enemies we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more, having been reconciled, we shall be saved by His life. 11 And not only that, but we also rejoice in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received the reconciliation.

 

12 Therefore, just as through one man sin entered the world, and death through sin, and thus death spread to all men, because all sinned— 13 (For until the law sin was in the world, but sin is not imputed when there is no law. 14 Nevertheless death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over those who had not sinned according to the likeness of the transgression of Adam, who is a type of Him who was to come. 15 But the free gift is not like the offense. For if by the one man’s offense many died, much more the grace of God and the gift by the grace of the one Man, Jesus Christ, abounded too many. 16 And the gift is not like that which came through the one who sinned. For the judgment which came from one offense resulted in condemnation, but the free gift which came from many offenses resulted in justification. 17 For if by the one man’s offense death reigned through the one, much more those who receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness will reign in life through the One, Jesus Christ.)

 

20 Moreover the law entered that the offense might abound. But where sin abounded, grace abounded much more, 21 so that as sin reigned in death, even so grace might reign through righteousness to eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. (Bold Emphasis Mine – Romans 5: 1-2, 6, 8-17, 20-21 NKJV)

 

1 What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin that grace may abound? 2 Certainly not! How shall we who died to sin live any longer in it? 3 Or do you not know that as many of us as were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into His death? 4 Therefore we were buried with Him through baptism into death, that just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.

 

12 Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body, that you should obey it in its lusts. 13 And do not present your members as instruments of unrighteousness to sin, but present yourselves to God as being alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness to God. 14 For sin shall not have dominion over you, for you are not under law but under grace.

 

15 What then? Shall we sin because we are not under law but under grace? Certainly not! 16 Do you not know that to whom you present yourselves slaves to obey, you are that one’s slaves whom you obey, whether of sin leading to death, or of obedience leading to righteousness? 17 But God be thanked that though you were slaves of sin, yet you obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine to which you were delivered. 18 And having been set free from sin, you became slaves of righteousness. 19 I speak in human terms because of the weakness of your flesh. For just as you presented your members as slaves of uncleanness, and of lawlessness leading to more lawlessness, so now present your members as slaves of righteousness for holiness.

 

20 For when you were slaves of sin, you were free in regard to righteousness. 21 What fruit did you have then in the things of which you are now ashamed? For the end of those things is death. 22 But now having been set free from sin, and having become slaves of God, you have your fruit to holiness, and the end, everlasting life. 23 For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Bold Emphasis Mine – Romans 6: 1-4, 12-23 NKJV)

 

The Gift of Grace through the Blood of Jesus Christ wipes away the past slate of sin. At Salvation a person’s inner spirit is renewed and transformed into a new spirit man in the image of Christ rather than in the image of Fallen Adam. What about those who have tasted the Grace of God yet in time rejected Salvation by relying on the unredeemed carnal nature? It happens to the best of us and to those full of themselves, you KNOW the carnal nature if allowed to will dominate a Christian leading to the possibility of having their name whited out of the Book of Life in the Last Judgment. And yet what if you come to your senses and realize your choices have separated you from God that could lead to the Second Death which is eternal separation from the Presence of God occurring after the Last Judgment. All sinners – non-Christians and Carnal Christians – have a moment in their life to change their heart as God knows all. There is no lie that hides the truth from God.

 

This parable is for those who have renounced Christ for what was deceptively thought a better life in sin:

 

11 Then He said: “A certain man had two sons. 12 And the younger of them said to his father, ‘Father, give me the portion of goods that falls to me.’ So he divided to them his livelihood. 13 And not many days after, the younger son gathered all together, journeyed to a far country, and there wasted his possessions with prodigal living. 14 But when he had spent all, there arose a severe famine in that land, and he began to be in want. 15 Then he went and joined himself to a citizen of that country, and he sent him into his fields to feed swine. 16 And he would gladly have filled his stomach with the pods that the swine ate, and no one gave him anything.

 

17 “But when he came to himself, he said, ‘How many of my father’s hired servants have bread enough and to spare, and I perish with hunger! 18 I will arise and go to my father, and will say to him, “Father, I have sinned against heaven and before you, 19 and I am no longer worthy to be called your son. Make me like one of your hired servants.”’

 

20 “And he arose and came to his father. But when he was still a great way off, his father saw him and had compassion, and ran and fell on his neck and kissed him. 21 And the son said to him, ‘Father, I have sinned against heaven and in your sight, and am no longer worthy to be called your son.’

 

22 “But the father said to his servants, ‘Bring[a] out the best robe and put it on him, and put a ring on his hand and sandals on his feet. 23 And bring the fatted calf here and kill it, and let us eat and be merry; 24 for this my son was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found.’ And they began to be merry.

 

25 “Now his older son was in the field. And as he came and drew near to the house, he heard music and dancing. 26 So he called one of the servants and asked what these things meant. 27 And he said to him, ‘Your brother has come, and because he has received him safe and sound, your father has killed the fatted calf.’

 

28 “But he was angry and would not go in. Therefore his father came out and pleaded with him. 29 So he answered and said to his father, ‘Lo, these many years I have been serving you; I never transgressed your commandment at any time; and yet you never gave me a young goat, that I might make merry with my friends. 30 But as soon as this son of yours came, who has devoured your livelihood with harlots, you killed the fatted calf for him.’

 

31 “And he said to him, ‘Son, you are always with me, and all that I have is yours.  (Bold Emphasis Mine – Luke 15: 11-31 NKJV)

 

This parable can applied to all sinning Christians. Nonetheless the topic is homosexuality is an abomination before God. A homosexual that has left Christianity or deceptively still views them self as a Christian you need to be aware that repentance will lead you into the arms of our Loving Father God through the Grace provided by the Blood of Jesus. HOWEVER, any Christian that unrepentantly rejects Salvation in Christ and dies in their sin – such as homosexuality – probably will have their name stricken from the Book of Life in the Last Judgment. Now I say “probably” because I am not God and I have no right to act as an eternal Judge. That responsibility was delivered to the Jesus Christ the Son of God and coequal in Oneness as Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

 

4 For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted the heavenly gift, and have become partakers of the Holy Spirit, 5 and have tasted the good word of God and the powers of the age to come, 6 if they fall away,[b] to renew them again to repentance, since they crucify again for themselves the Son of God, and put Him to an open shame.

 

7 For the earth which drinks in the rain that often comes upon it, and bears herbs useful for those by whom it is cultivated, receives blessing from God; 8 but if it bears thorns and briers, it is rejected and near to being cursed, whose end is to be burned. (Bold Emphasis Mine – Hebrews 6: 4-8 NKJV)

 

Okay, this is not Islam in which two contradictory verses are both true. I should point out that I am not a theologian even though I have graduated from a two year Bible School program. So what I am about to write be sure to check it out with your Pastor.

 

The Prodigal Son indicates there is repentance to one who has abandoned his faith. Hebrews 6: 4-8 seems to indicate the opposite in that once you have tasted the privileges of Salvation and go on to live a sinners life rejecting Christ’s Salvation, then there is no repentance that can return one back to the family of God.

 

As a Christian I believe the Word of God is the inerrant Truth. Rather than pull an “aha!” and proclaim the Bible is fake because it is a book of contradicting theology, I choose to reason a compatibility in which Scriptures are the Truth if there is a seeming contradiction.

 

I believe that scarlet thread that connects the Prodigal Son and the Hebrews verses concerning there is only one repentance is this: The Prodigal Son never disdained his father but came to his senses that a sinful lifestyle will lead to death. The Hebrews repentance once only Scriptures is applicable to those that have chosen the rabbit hole of no return. Thus any repentance – or life turning change – is a lie and is impossible. To such a person the act of repentance is not a heart change but rather a deceptive live to benefit some agenda and thus is a person throwing the Redemptive Blood of Christ in the old sticking pigsty. And that is my unauthoritative reconciliation enabling one Truth.

 

Allow me to reiterate that SCOTUS’s decision to force the Federal government to recognize States that have made same-sex marriage recognized by a minority of States is an abomination before God. In many cases those States that have legalized same-sex marriage has done with State Courts and NOT by legislation or a People’s Initiative that many States give to their voters. Indeed that brings me to SCOTUS and Proposition 8. Proposition 8 defined marriage as between one male and one female nullifying same-sex marriage. SCOTUS decided that the private individuals that have appealed a District Court decisions that made Prop. 8 unconstitutional within the California State Constitution did not have standing. The Dem Leftists of California’s State Congress and their Dem Leftist Governor refused to defend the will of the California voters in any courtroom.

 

So here is SCOTUS making same-sex marriage rights a State decision that the Federal government must honor and then slapping Christian Morality private citizens in the face for defending the California voters because the State government refused to back the voters.

 

SCOTUS defends States’ Rights and then rejects States’ Rights simultaneously. This is all a bunch of malarkey to force Americans to further accept that which God calls an abomination; viz. same-sex relationships!

 

God’s Word including Homosexuality

 

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. (Bold Emphasis Mine – Romans 1: 18-32 NKJV)

A Homosexual Judge Ruled Proposition 8 Unconstitutional


John R. Houk

© April 16, 2011

 

On Election Day November 2008 California voters passed Proposition 8 which bans same-sex marriage. Reprobate homosexuals were caught a bit surprised considering large portions of California are the Sodom and Gomorrah of America. More disturbing was the fact a Federal Judge ruled Proposition was Unconstitutional a couple of years later on August 4, 2010. It was not surprising that an activist judge ruled a State Law Unconstitutional against the mandate of the voters. What is disgusting is that Judge Vaughn Walker is not only an openly practicing homosexual but that he is also has a homosexual long term partner; AKA a same-sex relationship.

 

HELLO! Proposition 8 was enacted by the will of California voters to prevent the immorality of same-sex marriage.

 

Judge Walker’s 136 page self-justifying ruling that overruled the people of California had less to do with the U.S. Constitution and more to do with protecting his lifestyle that I am sure he is currently enjoying as a retired Judge homosexual reprobate.

 

Walker definitely had a conflict of interest in making a Constitutional ruling. Walker should have recused himself from the suit and since he did not, Walker’s ruling should be vacated.

 

Fortunately retired Judge Walker’s ruling has been stayed pending further judicial review:

 

PROP 8 SUPPORTERS PLEASED BY APPEALS COURT RULING HALTING SAME-SEX MARRIAGES

 

by Andy Pugno – General Counsel on August 16th, 2010

 

SACRAMENTO — This afternoon, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals granted a request by Prop 8 proponents to stay U.S. District Court Judge Vaughn Walker’s ruling, thereby upholding the vote of 7 million Californians while the Perry v. Schwarzenegger case is heard on appeal. The arguments will occur in San Francisco the week of December 6, 2010.

 

“California voters spoke clearly on Prop 8, and we’re glad to see their votes will remain valid while the legal challenges work their way up through the courts. Invalidating the people’s vote based on just one judge’s opinion would not have been appropriate, and would have shaken the people’s confidence in our elections and the right to vote itself,” said Andy Pugno, general counsel for ProtectMarriage.com, the defendants in the Perry v Schwarzenegger case.

 

Thank God Almighty for staying Walker’s obvious self-serving ruling. Now let’s look into the “why?” that Walker’s ruling should be vacated.

 

Let us look first at some of the reasons that retired Judge Walker had called overwhelming evidence that making a law (a State Amendment to California’s Constitution actually) preventing same-sex marriage is Unconstitutional. Frank Turek in an OneNewNow.com article lists the top ten reasons that Walker’s overwhelming evidence based on the 14th Amendment passed in 1868 is a bunch of homosexual hocus pocus:

 

1. “Sexual orientation is fundamental to a person’s identity and is a distinguishing characteristic that defines gays and lesbians as a discrete group.” (FF 44) This is the most important of the false facts because Walker’s entire case collapses without it. The “fact” is false because it ignores the difference between desires and behavior.

 

 

2. “California has no interest in asking gays and lesbians to change their sexual orientation or in reducing the number of gays and lesbians in California.” (FF 47) Other than helping them avoid disease and live longer, absolutely no reason. Statistics show that health problems are higher and life spans shorter for homosexuals.

 

 

3. “Same-sex couples are identical to opposite-sex couples in the characteristics relevant to the ability to form successful marital unions.” (FF 48) What does “successful” mean? It has nothing to do with children, according to Judge Walker. In his “the stork brings children” universe, marriage is merely about coupling; procreation is just incidental to it. He thinks a “successful” marriage is merely about commitment, but he can’t even support that case.

 

 

4. “Permitting same-sex couples to marry will not affect the number of opposite-sex couples who marry, divorce, cohabit, have children outside of marriage or otherwise affect the stability of opposite-sex marriages.” (FF 55) Judge Walker cites just four years of data from Massachusetts to make that sweeping conclusion about the most important relationship in human civilization. The truth is that evidence from other countries over a much longer period shows a mutually reinforcing relationship between same-sex marriage and illegitimacy. And the disastrous results of 40 years of liberalized divorce laws show how monumentally important marriage laws are to the health of marriages, children, and the nation.

 

5. “Proposition 8 does not affect the First Amendment rights of those opposed to marriage for same-sex couples.” (FF 62) It’s too bad Judge Walker didn’t look to evidence from Massachusetts for this false fact. If he had he would have seen that court-imposed same-sex marriage has severely affected First Amendment rights. Same-sex marriage may not affect heterosexual marriage behavior quickly, but it certainly affects the free exercise of religion very quickly.

 

 

6. “No credible evidence supports a finding that an individual may, through conscious decision, therapeutic intervention or any other method, change his or her sexual orientation.” (FF 46) I guess thousands of ex-gays just don’t exist in Judge Walker’s special-pleading universe. Neither does renowned Columbia University psychiatrist, Dr. Robert Spitzer, who concluded that some highly motivated individuals can change their orientation from homosexual to heterosexual through reorientation therapy.

This is significant because Spitzer is no propagandist for the religious right. Quite the contrary — a self-described “Jewish atheist,” Spitzer has been a hero to homosexual activists since 1973 when he helped get homosexuality declassified as a mental disorder. Recently, however, they’ve turned on him because he reported the truth.

 

 

7. “The gender of a child’s parent is not a factor in a child’s adjustment.” (FF 70) Incredibly, Judge Walker says that this conclusion “is accepted beyond serious debate.” Citing a study by the politicized APA, Walker never admits that not enough research has been done to evaluate the well being of children living with homosexual parents. And he ignored evidence presented by the defense that contradicted his “fact.”

 

8. “Religious beliefs that gay and lesbian relationships are sinful or inferior to heterosexual relationships harm gays and lesbians.” (FF 77) Really? Do religious beliefs that drunkenness is sinful or inferior to sobriety harm alcoholics? No, those beliefs help such people by telling them the truth about destructive behavior instead of enabling them with liberal fantasyland talk about how all behaviors and lifestyles are equal.

 

9. “Proposition 8 results in frequent reminders for gays and lesbians in committed long-term relationships that their relationships are not as highly valued as opposite-sex relationships.” (FF 68) This is not meant to be offensive, but what if certain relationships really are more valuable to society than others? Clearly, the procreative committed relationship of a man and a woman is more valuable than any other relationship in society because it is necessary for society’s very survival. To comprehend the impact of this, you just need to consider two questions.

 

(1) What would happen to society if everyone lived faithfully in natural marriage? Our country would thrive with a drastic reduction in numerous social problems including illegitimacy, crime, welfare, and abortion.

(2) What would happen to society if everyone lived faithfully in same-sex marriage? Society wouldn’t thrive because it wouldn’t even survive. It would end the human race!

 

This is not to say that such a law would cause this, but merely to point out that certain relationships are more valuable to a society than others. The truth is that homosexual and heterosexual relationships are not the same, can never be the same, and will never yield the same benefits to individuals or society.

 

 

10. “Proposition 8 fails to advance any rational basis in singling out gay men and lesbians for denial of a marriage license.” (Conclusion) The real fact is that Judge Walker fails to provide any “rational basis” for overturning Proposition 8 — no rational basis from the Constitution or common sense. While lecturing the people of California that their “private moral views” cannot be used to make their laws, Judge Walker has simply imposed his own “private moral view” that same-sex marriage must be sanctioned. That is objectively immoral and unconstitutional itself.

 

Yeah, it sure reads like retired Judge Walker the homosexual made a ruling based on the U.S. Constitution, right?

 

NO!
