Chick-Fil Shows How Religious Freedoms Are Being Lost


Chick-fil-A Day

Ann Matos got my attention commenting on an article by Thomas Messner who writes that the Leftist and Homosexual activist attack on the Family Values promoted by Chick-Fil-A.

 

Messner’s point is that all the Leftist talk to ban Chick-Fil-A is just one more symptom of utilizing political power and money-sucking litigation to force Christians to be quiet about Biblical Morality.

 

Friends that is so evil that I can say that is Satanic.

Chick-Fil Shows How Religious Freedoms Are Being Lost

Use the above link to read a chilling article how Christians who express their conscience are being placed under legal, cultural and economic pressure to recant.  I feel these are signs of the end times and may indeed be unstoppable.  However, for the sake of our nation, for what it once was, for what it can be again, I haven’t yet given up hope that this situation can be reversed.  After all, when Jonah went to Ninevah, they repented.  Who knows?  Maybe we will yet have a great revival — a time of renewed Christian committment (sic), as Billy Graham prays for.  I still believe … … …

Chick-fil-A Latest Example of How Same-Sex Marriage Threatens Religious Freedom

 

By Thomas Messner

Same-sex marriage combined with nondiscrimination policies will result in significant discrimination against individuals and institutions that hold to the belief that marriage is—and should be defined in law as—the union of one man and one woman.

In the latest illustration of how this will happen, a Chickkago alderman recently explained that he plans to block the Chickkken restaurant Chick-fil-A from building a new restaurant in his ward because he is offended by the belief of the company’s owners that marriage is between one man and one woman.

 

“There are consequences for one’s actions, statements and beliefs,” the official stated. “Because of this man’s ignorance, I will deny Chick-fil-A a permit to open a restaurant in my ward.”

 

Under pressure, this official might attempt to alter his rationale for targeting Chick-fil-A—or even back down altogether like the mayor of Boston did when he was criticized for targeting Chick-fil-A in his city.

 

However it turns out, though, the Chick-fil-A situation certainly adds to the growing list of cases illustrating how individuals and institutions that continue to support marriage as one man and one woman will likely face a variety of significant burdens:

 

§  A Christian photographer in New Mexico who refused to photograph a same-sex commitment ceremony was hauled before a human rights tribunal and forced to pay nearly $6,700 in attorneys’ fees to the complainant;

 

§  Christian charities have been forced to stop providing foster care and adoption services because they cannot in good conscience comply with laws that would require them to violate beliefs about marriage and family;

 

§  Boy Scouts of America has lost equal access to public facilities and programs because of its position on open homosexuality;

 

§  A graduate student claims that she was expelled from a public university counseling program after she conscientiously objected to counseling a potential client seeking assistance regarding a homosexual relationship; and

 

§  A Christian organization at a public university was denied official recognition because it required officers and voting members to adhere to traditional Christian teachings, including a prohibition on extramarital sex.

 

This is not “live and let live.” This is the state—and sometimes private citizens and the culture at large—punishing people who refuse to recant their belief that marriage is the union of a husband and wife.

 

This kind of thing happens because proponents of same-sex marriage declare support for marriage as one man and one woman to be a form of irrational prejudice and bigotry similar to racism. In this view, support for marriage as one man and one woman is the kind of belief that should be purged from public life through legal, cultural, and economic pressure.

 

This is precisely what is happening right now to Chick-fil-A.

 

Defending marriage takes courage. For more stories of people who have demonstrated courage in standing for marriage as one man and one woman, visit the website of the Marriage Anti-Defamation Alliance, a group that stands up for people who stand up for marriage.

Family Values Christians Unite


In God we Trust- Flag & Bible

John R. Houk

© July 13, 2012

 

Solid Snake often complains that pro-family groups are more talk than action. He believes they are more about sending out newsletters to keep the donating base going in order to keep the salaries going for their non-profit organizations. Instead a greater percentage of the donations should be used for actual activism rather than merely moralizing.

 

I believe Solid Snake is on to something. The moralizing is good; however if it is not followed up by action the moralizing is merely for the ever shrinking choir. The choir is shrinking because Left inspired activism is well funded and well organized for activism.

 

In America Christians have allowed America’s Left to effectually war on Christianity. More and more of the Mainstream Church Denominations in America are either losing membership or rendering the Word of God to the level of myth or both. Evangelical Christians and of that lot those Churches that lean to non-denominationalism are the only Christians that are constantly adding numbers to the Body of Christ.

 

Solid Snake’s expertise in the infiltration homosexual activist organizations and public events and exposing the depravity and too often illegal activities related to embezzling or corrupting America’s youth with something like promoting underage sex within a homosexual venue.

 

Here is a recent letter that Solid Snake sent to some Pro-Family groups as a call for more activism:

 

Unite: God’s Truth and Family Values

By Solid Snake

Originally sent: June 29, 2012

 

Dear Pro Family Group:

 

 

Thank-you for standing up for God’s Truth and Family Values, and against lawlessness, indecency such as public nudity including homosexual acts and other things that are difficult to put into words-that the Homosexual lobby is trying to force us to accept and affirm…

 

You are aware of homosexual groups and their goals to destroy the nuclear family and our long held American family values. They will silence anyone who questions or challenges them, or who dares to talk about reparative therapy or the freedom to change.

 

I have been watching up close up and personal this battle for quite some time. I have infiltrated some of the most horrific events they put on to bring the reality of what they are doing to your attention. Yet some pro family groups lack the intestinal fortitude to challenge the Homosexuals out in the open head-on.

 

What is there to fear??

 

Perhaps some encouragement is what’s needed. 

 

Writing newsletters and press releases can only go so far. Eventually, the enemy has to be faced on the field of battle, which few have the stomach for, because most are shying away from it. Pretending it doesn’t exist is not going to eliminate the threat.

 

For those who have fought the Homosexuals on their own ground I commend you. The homosexual activists may have main stream media and Hollywood at their beck and call. But you have an ally more powerful than anything or anyone the Homosexual lobby has in their suitcase of treachery, fraud, violence, lust & greed. That ally is our Lord Jesus Christ. (Emphasis Mine)

 

The only way to combat this evil is to work together as a single unit to expose the inexcusable acts by Homosexual activist groups and what they are doing to children.  I humbly ask you to put your differences aside with your co laborers and work together as a single unit in unit cohesion to overcome this evil.

 

Pool your resources to combat what the enemy is planning before it is too late. Hollow and unstable [is] the foundation of Homosexual’s lobby and their groups’ are capable of severe damage as they are defeated in every arena. [SlantRight Editor: I had a difficult time understanding the original paragraph so I took the liberty to edit this paragraph. I pray I did not alter Solid Snake’s original intent.]

 

An attack on one pro family organization or person who opposes the homosexual lobby should be considered an attack on all (clergy included).  All the Hate email, snail mail written by homosexual “activists”, bloggers should be posted publicly verbatim so people can see how vile and evil they really are to anyone who questions or opposes their lifestyle. I sincerely thank you for your work and I will continue to support and assist your cause however I can. 

 

 

 

Sincerely:

 

Solid Snake

 

Cc: NYFRF, FRC, Mass Resistance, AFA, Mission America, NOM, AFTH (sic)

 

The last organization a copy was sent to is actually AFTAH. The “Cc” forgot a letter. In conversations I have had with Solid Snake the organizations he rates as best is Mass Resistance, AFTAH and Mission America. The Pro-Family organizations that Solid Snake believes are not pulling their weight in activism are AFA and FRC. I am certain Solid Snake has other Pro-Family organizations on the plus and minus side however these are the ones he has mentioned to me.

 

I check up on Mass Resistance and AFTAH via my RSS program. I am on the email lists of AFA and FRC. I don’t know much about Mission America.

 

I know Mass Resistance is in the heat of battle in confronting the homosexual agenda to warp the morals of America. Currently Mass Resistance is in a battle to expose the homosexual activist Adam Flanders who is a convicted Man/Boy sex offender in having sex with a minor boy. Flanders has enlisted the money of homosexual groups to utilize a Leftist activist Judge in Maine to harass Mass Resistance founder Brian Camenker. Exposing Flanders was just a part of taking the fight to the homosexual agenda. Mass Resistance is exposing what is going on at homosexual youth camps. You can guess that more goes on than to just provide a place of validation for corrupted boys and girls that have been brainwashed that choosing a homosexual lifestyle is normal and good for society.

 

AFTAH is all about exposing the perversity of homosexuality that the MSM does not inform heterosexual America and that homosexual activism is hell-bent in preventing such knowledge from reaching Americans while homosexual activism brainwashes people to accept godless morality over Biblical Morality. AFTAH is the acronym for Americans for Truth about Homosexuality.

 

The AFA is the acronym for American Family Association. Below is some AFA information from their website:

 

Who is AFA?

 

American Family Association (AFA) a non-profit 501(c3) organization was founded in 1977 by Donald E. Wildmon, who was pastoring First United Methodist Church in Southaven, Mississippi, at the time. Since 1977, AFA has been on the frontlines of America’s culture war. The original name of the ministry was National Federation for Decency but was changed to American Family Association (AFA) in 1988.

 

Today, AFA is one of the largest and most effective pro-family organizations in the country with over two million online supporters and approximately 180,000 paid subscribers to the AFA Journal, the ministry’s monthly magazine. In addition, AFA owns and operates nearly 200 radio stations across the country under the American Family Radio (AFR) banner.

Other divisions of AFA include OneNewsNow.com, an online news provider that is syndicated around the world. AFA maintains activist web sites such as OneMillionMoms.com and OneMillionDads.com that rally Christian activists to contact companies asking them to drop their advertising from objectionable TV shows. AFA web sites average over 40 million hits and five million visitors each month.

AFA uses all these means to communicate an outspoken, resolute, Christian voice throughout America.

 

HAS AFA MADE AN IMPACT?

 

AFA is a long-time member of the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability. In 2008, the AFA received a second consecutive four-star rating from Charity Navigator (CN), an independent watchdog organization which monitors nonprofit groups.  Click here to see article.

 

Highlights of AFA’s recent accomplishments include:

 

2010

 

§  AFA issued its annual “Naughty or Nice” listing of retailers’ recognition of Christmas in its advertising.  Over one million people viewed the list during Nov/Dec.

 

§  Alerted consumers to Sears’ distribution of hard-core pornography from its website. Sears eventually pulled the material.

 

§  Launched a boycott of The Home Depot after it refused to remain neutral in the culture war.

 

§  Stopped Comedy Central from airing “JC”, a cartoon mocking Jesus and Christianity.

 

§  Launched the iVote campaign, placing hundreds of billboards across the nation, encouraging citizens to vote their values in November.

 

§  Exposed homosexual “Day of Silence” and encourage parents to keep their children home from public school on that day.

 

§  AFA suspended the boycott of PepsiCo. After monitoring the company for several months, AFA is satisfied the company has withdrawn its major financial contributions to gay activist groups.

 

§  Over 11,705 official indecency complaints were filed with the FCC after FOX Network aired a bestiality scene on its American Dad program.

 

§  Erroll Southers, the President’s poorly chosen nominee to head up the Transportation Security Administration, withdrew his name from consideration. Tens of thousands of you sent letters to your senators in response to our action alert on his nomination.

 

There is more impact info from the years 2009 down to 2006.

 

The whole page of which “Who is AFA?” and “Has made an Impact” can be viewed HERE.

 

I have to disagree with Solid Snake that the AFA is ineffective in activism. I believe the AFA has made a huge impact in defense of Family Values. On the other hand if the AFA and other Pro-Family groups unite in a defined level to protect Family Values the impact would bury homosexual activism among the other issues that are on attack mode against Family Values. For example a coordinated front of Family Values activism on a grassroots level is something that would have to be reported by the Mainstream Media (MSM).

 

For example he has taken it upon himself to infiltrate homosexual events to take pictures and videos of the perversion that occurs in public. Yet he feels like a lone wolf because he and perhaps a few willing buddies enter these streets and avenues of Sodom and Gomorrah.

 

The Family Research Council (FRC) is not as activist oriented in its agenda as the AFA. Here is some information about FRC activities from their website:

 

About FRC

 

Since 1983, Family Research Council (FRC) has advanced faith, family and freedom in public policy and public opinion. FRC’s team of seasoned experts promotes these core values through policy research, public education on Capitol Hill and in the media, and grassroots mobilization. We review legislation, meet with policymakers, publish books and pamphlets, build coalitions, testify before Congress, and maintain a powerful presence in print and broadcast media. Through our outreach to pastors, we equip churches to transform the culture.

Strategically located in Washington, D.C., FRC is the leading voice for the family in our nation’s halls of power.  FRC is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.

 

Mission Statement

 

Family Research Council (FRC) champions marriage and family as the foundation of civilization, the seedbed of virtue, and the wellspring of society. FRC shapes public debate and formulates public policy that values human life and upholds the institutions of marriage and the family. Believing that God is the author of life, liberty, and the family, FRC promotes the Judeo-Christian worldview as the basis for a just, free, and stable society.

 

You can read more about the FRC history HERE.

 

FRC’s activism is in educating a network of people that are influential in Washington, DC politics. The FRC’s idea of grassroots activism is keeping a network of potential donors informed. To give FRC a little credit, informing their network of potential donors is in all probability influencing potential voters who will in turn be writing their Senator and Congressman on a Federal and State level. Hopefully this influence also translates into the proper votes on a County and City level.

 

A true impact would be to organize a spontaneous looking protest against homosexual debauchery in the thousands at all the major cities that allow perverted homosexual events to take place across the USA. NOW that would be some impact.

 

The impact would be the MSM would have a difficult time reporting a confrontation as between poor victimized homosexuals and some bigoted Christians. If the MSM would dare to show Christians walking peacefully with signs and Scriptural chants of protest compared to the barely clad males participating in something like homosexual sadomasochism, then the public would have a hard time believing a MSM spin that Christian protesters were utilizing violent intimidation. I am certain any violence that would ensue would be from homosexuals engaging in violent intimidation and coarse language that would match the perversion already being engaged into.

 

This kind of grassroots activism is something Pro-Family groups FAIL to engage in. One must ask – WHY?

 

Solid Snake might answer the question that the Pro-Family groups’ fear their funding may be attacked in some way when homosexual activism strikes back with the usual baited diatribes that Christians are engaging in homophobic bigotry. After all homosexuals have the Right as Lesbian, Gay, Bi-sexual and Transgender individuals to choose this alternate lifestyle because even the American Medical Association as well as the Psychology and Psychiatrist equivalents were intimidated into changing homosexuality from a mental health problem to societal normalcy.

 

Homosexuals are actually a very small minority in America. According to the MSM The Atlantic less than 5% of Americans are homosexuals. Of course the opposite is true then: MORE THAN 95% OF AMERICANS ARE THE REAL NORMAL. This statistic does not make homosexuals a small minority, rather it makes homosexuals NOT NORMAL.

 

Now think of the impact on American culture if the huge proportion of the Christian population that is a  part of 95% of normal Americans, united on a grassroots level, to counter the money-power of the way less than 5% of homosexual activism – would Biblical morality be reaffirmed?

SlantRight Editor: Solid Snake sent the 990s of the AFA and FRC to drive home the point that those two Pro-Family organization are more interested in money than inspiring local grassroots activism across America. I have to be honest that bean counting is not one of my strong points in producing an appropriate analysis. So this is what I am going to do. I am going to post some screen shots of sections of the 990s and those of you with a head for math send me the analysis of what the AFA and the FRC can do better on a grassroots involvement on the local level.

Obama says JESUS wants homosexual "marriage"


Yesterday President Barack Hussein Obama finally pulled up his Left Wing boot straps to say publicly what everyone already knows he believes; viz. that he supports same-sex marriage.

 

 

I am guessing Obama might be seeing the voter writing on the wall and is going full Left Wing tilt on homosexual marriage to inspire homosexuals and his Leftist base to hit the polls on Election Day in November 2012. The irony is BHO is also Conservative – especially Family Values – voters to hit the polls on Election Day as well.

 

Friends this is the kind of junk that Obama was really promising in 2008 when proclaimed he was bringing “Change” to America. That “Change” is really a Socialistic-Moral Relativity transformation that is in direct opposition to Christian principles that most Americans still feel an affinity toward.

 

Gordon James Klingenschmitt the former Chaplain given the boot from the U.S. Navy for daring to pray in the Name of Jesus is organizing a petition campaign to allow voters to express their thoughts on using the Office of the President to extend moral depravity to holy matrimony.

Breaking:  Obama says JESUS wants sodomite “marriage”

President Obama fully endorsed sodomy today, blaming Jesus Christ for his new views, declaring homosexual “marriage” should become “legal.”  But sin will never be legal in the eyes of Almighty God.  It can be forgiven if we repent and believe in Jesus Christ, but sin cannot be made legal.  Obama said, in part:

“I’ve just concluded that for me personally it is important for me to go ahead and affirm that I think same sex couples should be able to get married…you know, I, you know, we are both practicing Christians and obviously this position may be considered to put us at odds with the views of others but, you know, when we think about our faith, the thing at root that we think about is, not only Christ sacrificing himself on our behalf, but it’s also the Golden Rule, you know, treat others the way you would want to be treated.”

In other words, Obama believes Jesus wants homosexual marriage for America.  His words, not mine.  Read his words again, slowly. 

Does the Golden Rule mean Jesus endorsed sodomy?  Of course not.  In Matthew 19:4-6, Jesus clearly defined marriage as only valid between one man and one woman:  “Have you not read that he who created them from the beginning made them male and female, and said, ‘Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh’?  So they are no longer two but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together, let not man separate.”  In context of Matthew 18:6, Jesus said of those who recruit children into sexual sin:  “whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea.”  1 Cor 6:9 makes it clear:  “Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral…nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders…will inherit the kingdom of God.”  Obama is a false Bible teacher.

I predicted one year ago that Obama would fully endorse “marriage” for homosexuals, and I repeated that two days ago (as you see below).  Obama now makes sin equal to holiness, which is impossible in the eyes of God.

Obama’s bad move comes just hours after Colorado legislators, North Carolina voters, and Indiana primary voters ALL REJECTED PRO-HOMOSEXUAL ballot initiatives or candidates.  North Carolina voters passed 61 to 39% an amendment to their state Constitution rejecting not only homosexual “marriage” but also rejecting civil unions.   Indiana RINO Senator Dick Lugar routinely supported pro-homosexual judges, and was rejected by Church voters last night.

In good news, my own neighbor and friend, Colorado state representative Mark Waller (R-Colorado Springs) stalled and stopped homosexual “civil unions” bill in the Colorado state house last night, and was featured in the today’s New York Times, thank God.   Reports suggested if a vote were allowed, civil unions may have passed in Colorado, but now they must wait another year, when hopefully Christians will re-take the state senate..

What can be done?  Let’s continue to petition Congress to defend traditional marriage.

Please select here to SIGN URGENT PETITION to PASS THE FEDERAL MARRIAGE AMENDMENT defining marriage between ONE MAN and ONE WOMAN.  Vote against S.598 that would repeal DOMA, and protect DOMA in court, and we will auto-fax your petition to all 100 Senators and 435 Congressmen (saving you much time!)

VP Joe Biden:  Obama agrees with me on Homosexual Marriage

In an interview on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” Vice President Joe Biden described himself as “absolutely comfortable” with gay couples having the same rights as straight couples.   Then both Biden and senior advisor David Axelrod BOTH claimed President Obama has also personally and fully endorsed homosexual ‘marriage.’

“Look. I am vice president of the United States of America,” Biden said. “The president sets the policy. I am absolutely comfortable with the fact that men marrying men, women marrying women and heterosexual – men and women marrying – are entitled to the same exact rights, all the civil rights, all the civil liberties. And quite frankly, I don’t see much of a distinction beyond that.”

Asked whether the Obama administration in a second term would come out in favor of same-sex marriage, Biden replied:  “I can’t speak to that. I don’t know the answer to that,” he said.

Biden’s office then claimed Obama COMPLETELY AGREES with Biden for sodomy.  The Washington Post reports that immediately after that interview, a Biden spokesperson said that the vice president “was saying what the President has said previously — that committed and loving same-sex couples deserve the same rights and protections enjoyed by all Americans, and that we oppose any effort to rollback those rights.”

“That’s why we stopped defending the constitutionality of section 3 of the Defense of Marriage Act in legal challenges and support legislation to repeal it,” the aide said. “Beyond that, the Vice President was expressing that he too is evolving on the issue, after meeting so many committed couples and families in this country.”

And Obama senior adviser David Axelrod said via Twitter shortly after Biden spoke: “What VP said-that all married couples should have exactly the same legal rights-is precisely POTUS’s position.”

[Dr. Chaps’ comment:  This is proof Obama’s “evolving” views of homosexual marriage have completely matured into full endorsement of sodomy.  Obama is no longer evolving.  His spokesman Axelrod said there is no daylight between Obama himself and “total equality” of sin with holiness.]

Let’s all petition Congress today to OPPOSE sodomite ‘marriage,’ defend the 1996 Defense of Marriage Act, and pass an amendment to the Constitution defining marriage in all 50 states as only valid between one man and one woman. . .

Obama’s lawyer says Court should homosexualize ‘marriage’ in all 50 states

The Obama Administration argued last month that homosexual ‘marriage’ was written into the Constitution by our founding fathers, and actually argued against the First Circuit Court of Appeals’ duty to enforce the 1996 Defense of Marriage Act.

President Obama is now openly trying to force homosexual ‘marriage’ upon all 50 states.   Eyewitnesses report Obama’s twisted court-room arguments in National Review:

“It’s hard to describe how odd it is to hear a Department of Justice lawyer argue in court that a law passed by Congress should be struck down as unconstitutional. It is, after all, the DOJ’s job to defend laws passed by Congress. But as I sat at the First Circuit Court of Appeals in Boston on Wednesday listening to the appellate arguments for the Federal Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) cases, that’s exactly what I heard for 20 minutes from the DOJ lawyer.

“The administration’s abdication does have a silver lining: The House of Representatives retained former solicitor general Paul Clement to defend the law in DOJ’s place. And Clement’s well-earned reputation as advocate extraordinaire was on display Wednesday, as he deftly defended the law and Congress’s prerogative in recognizing the opposite-sex definition of marriage for federal purposes…

“Ultimately, it’s much better that Paul Clement is defending these cases rather than the DOJ, which only pretended to defend DOMA before deciding to jump ship and join the opposition. But still, you have to wonder how the DOJ’s unprecedented decision to attack the constitutionality of a law that it has a constitutional duty to defend will impact the Department in the long-term…

“Does DOMA deserve anything less? It was enacted by huge, bipartisan majorities in both houses (85–14 in the Senate, 342–67 in the House), its constitutionality was affirmed by the DOJ, and it was signed by President Clinton…

“The administration’s stated reason for abandoning DOMA’s defense is that it believes that sexual orientation should be entitled to heightened protection, despite the avalanche of precedent to the contrary. That was [Obama’s] main argument at the First Circuit… (incidentally, the First Circuit is one of the eleven to have already decided the issue).

“Such an odd litigation position can’t be justified by legitimate legal theory. But then again, it seems clear that the administration’s decision didn’t have anything to do with law. At the end of the day, the administration’s decision was pure politics. And that is unfortunate in a nation that is supposed to be of laws, not men. Marriage deserves better, and so do the American people.”  –Dale Schowengerdt

[DR. CHAPS COMMENT:  I couldn’t have said it better.  Obama is now openly trying to force homosexual ‘marriage’ upon all 50 states, through his court-room argument that our founding fathers somehow established sodomy as a civil right in our Constitution.]

Let’s take action now, to demand Congress act to protect traditional marriage.

New York Gov. demands Homosexual Marriage in all 50 States.

The Governor of New York Andrew Cuomo demanded homosexual “marriage” be allowed in all 50 states, in a speech to the “Empire State Pride Agenda” activist group this week.   Receiving a standing ovation for more than a minute, Cuomo prepared to run for President in 2016, issuing “a passionate plea on Thursday for other states to follow New York’s lead and allow gay couples to wed,” reports the New York Times.

“Mr. Cuomo demanded that the federal Defense of Marriage Act [DOMA] be repealed. His voice rising in intensity as he spoke, he also called for federal legislation that would bar discrimination against gay men and lesbians…in his most forceful terms to date, Mr. Cuomo called for his counterparts [the other 49 state governors] across the country…to push for the legalization of same-sex marriage in their own statehouses.”

The U.S. Senate Judiciary committee voted to repeal DOMA, and homosexualize the institution of marriage in all 50 states.  The full Senate may vote this week.

ABC News reported:  “the legislation [was] supported by all ten Democrats on the committee.  After that the legislation will go to the full Senate for consideration.” 

Please take action today, by calling both your U.S. Senators and asking them “Please vote NO AND FILIBUSTER the bill S.598 the mislabeled ‘Respect for Marriage Act’ which actually disrespects and homosexualizes the institution of marriage.  Traditional marriage should be protected as defined by God: only valid between one man and one woman.” 

You can reach all 100 Senators by dialing 202-225-3121, and requesting your state.

NEW YORK SUES U.S.A. TO FORCE GAY “MARRIAGE” IN ALL 50 STATES

The attorney general of New York State has sued the rest the USA in federal court, to overturn the 1996 Defense of Marriage Act, claiming homosexuals have a right to sodomy under the 14th Amendment of the United States Constitution.  Laws in 44 other states that define marriage between one man and one woman could be overturned by one federal court in Manhattan.  

Reuters reports:  “In court papers filed on Tuesday in U.S. federal court in Manhattan, New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman said the Defense of Marriage Act, or DOMA, violates same-sex couples’ right to equal protection under the U.S. Constitution… Schneiderman wrote: ‘By discriminating among married couples based on sexual orientation and sex, DOMA deprives New York of the ability to extend true equality to all marriages valid in the State.'” 

In other words, New York wants the federal law overturned in all 50 states, forcing Texas, Mississippi, Oklahoma, and every state to embrace homosexual “marriage” just so that New York lesbians and gays can receive federal “homosexual bonus pay” by taxing heterosexuals more.  

Reuters explained how homosexual bonus pay scheme would work:  “Schneiderman made his arguments in support of a case brought by Edie Windsor, a woman who sued the United States last year after an inheritance from her former partner was taxed. Windsor, who was married in Canada in 2007, said she had to pay $350,000 in inheritance tax in 2009 after the federal government refused to recognize her marriage.”  [If her lesbian marriage were honored, heterosexuals would be taxed the $350,000 to pay Windsor’s bill.]

Windsor argued she “was forced to pay in violation of the constitutional guarantee of equal protection of the law.”  But our founding fathers punished sodomy as a crime, and never dreamed the Constitution protected homosexual sin.  Furthermore homosexuals already have the equal right to marry, so long as they repent and marry heterosexually as law defines traditional marriage.  This proves they now seek special rights, not equal rights.  

Bottom line:  We need a Constitutional Marriage Amendment to whip New York back into line.  Let’s defend the 1996 DOMA law, and support Michele Bachmann’s call for a Constitutional Amendment to define marriage nationwide, as one man + one woman. 

Please select here to SIGN URGENT PETITION to PASS THE FEDERAL MARRIAGE AMENDMENT defining marriage between ONE MAN and ONE WOMAN.  Vote against S.598 that would repeal DOMA, and protect DOMA in court, and we will auto-fax your petition to all 100 Senators and 435 Congressmen (saving you much time!)
 
DEMOCRATS IN U.S. SENATE INTRODUCE BILL TO REPEAL 1996 DOMA LAW

While the national media covers only the debt crisis, Democrats in the Senate are attacking traditional marriage between one man and one woman, by attempting to repeal the 1996 Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA).  Not satisfied with homosexualizing the military, or forcing gay “marriage” in states like New York, radical homosexuals testified on Capitol Hill today demanding homosexual “bonus pay” with more than 1,100 federal benefits that reward their acts of sodomy in all 50 states, taxing heterosexuals more to pay homosexuals to engage in immorality. 

On Tuesday Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) introduced, and President Obama quickly  endorsed a new bill S.598 to promote homosexual marriage, mislabeled the “Respect for Marriage Act” (RFMA) to end federal law that defines traditional marriage between one man and one woman.  White House press secretary Jay Carney told reporters Tuesday “President Obama is proud to support the Respect for Marriage Act,” which disrespects traditional marriage by enforcing homosexual marriage upon all 50 states. His views are no longer “evolving” rather
Obama is now fully out of the closet promoting gay marriage nationwide.

At last week’s hearings 5 pro-homosexual witnesses and just 3 conservatives argued for and against repealing DOMA, and passing RFMA, including 2 high-profile gay activists, Joe Solmonese, president of the Human Rights Campaign, and Evan Wolfson, founder and executive director of Freedom to Marry. Joining them will be Susan Murray, an activist attorney from Vermont, and complainers Ron Wallen of California and Andrew Sorbo of Connecticut, both of whom were denied homosexual bonus pay, and bonus Social Security checks (funded by heterosexual tax-payers) when their homosexual “marriage” partners died. 

Testifying in favor of keeping DOMA intact were pro-marriage heroes Ed Whelan, president of the Ethics and Public Policy Center, Austin Nimocks, senior legal counsel for the Alliance Defense Fund, and Tom Minnery, senior vice president of government and public policy for Focus on the Family.

44 States have passed laws like DOMA defining marriage between one man and one woman, but if RFMA is passed and the federal DOMA law repealed, all 44 state laws could be in danger of being overturned in court.  Just imagine Texas, Oklahoma, Kentucky, Mississippi, etc. being forced to issue homosexual “marriage” licenses, or forced to recognize and pay your tax benefits to homosexuals “married” in New York.  

Let’s take a stand, by petitioning all 100 Senators to defend DOMA, and reject RFMA. 

Please select here to SIGN URGENT PETITION to PASS THE FEDERAL MARRIAGE AMENDMENT defining marriage between ONE MAN and ONE WOMAN.  Vote against S.598 that would repeal DOMA, and protect DOMA in court, and we will auto-fax your petition to all 100 Senators and 435 Congressmen (saving you much time!)
 
Friends, our nation will soon endorse homosexual “marriage” in all 50 states, if your Senator doesn’t take a stand to defend DOMA, since Obama won’t.  Let’s take a stand today, and demand Senators defend the 1996 DOMA law in court.

 

God Bless you, in Jesus’ name,

Chaplain Gordon James Klingenschmitt, PhD

Leslie Sacks on Latino Immigrants


Immigration - Statue Liberty

John R. Houk

© May 6, 2012

 

Leslie J. Sacks has sent a post lauding the traditional Family Values that most recent Latino immigrants bring with them to America. Sacks is absolutely correct in this assessment. Many Latinos come to America with that old fashioned work ethic that once was a norm.

 

What Sacks fails to mention is that too often the Latino immigrants come to America illegally. This is unlike many of the immigrants from Europe even from the mid-1800s through the early 1900s.

 

I don’t have a problem with Latino immigrants to America as long as the immigration is legal. If legal immigration is maintained it would be a fantastic way to help screen out the few Latinos that are drug dealers or Latino gang members. The drug dealing and gang member Latinos are giving the hard working family value Latinos a bad image in America.

 

I am a huge proponent of finding a way to shut off the border between the USA and Mexico in able to make immigration a more legal rather than an illegal proposition. I also am a proponent that Latinos that desire to work in America should be given easier access to the job market in America. Definite immigration reform needs to occur for Latinos that view America as a job opportunity to cross the border legally along with the ability to travel freely back to Mexico.

 

The Latinos that desire to become citizens of America need to have an expectation to learn the English language. English is the language of America and the UK is considered the Mother Country not Spain. Our culture is Anglo-Saxon not Hispanic. The earlier immigrants to America rather Italian, German, Swedish or other non-English speaking people all learned English by their second generation. Latinos that desire citizenship should also learn English.

 

Well that is my two-cents. Below is Leslie J. Sacks’ thoughts on Latinos. Sacks’ thoughts are accurate; however I believe he leaves out the other side of the coin.

Latinos in the US are fiercely familial and loyal. Ironically, many Americans (most likely from non-recent immigration) find it strangely meaningful to separate themselves (and their spouses) from their respective families (and often childhood friends) and forge an independent albeit somewhat alienated existence. As a result many Americans evolve sophisticated business and financial lifestyles yet retain a certain emotional and spiritual immaturity. By contrast, a strong family unit is often visible in new immigrant groups, whether they are Vietnamese, Honduran, Korean or Indian.

 

The Latino community seems passionate about Latino America. Not necessarily a bad thing (La Raza excluded) as this energy will translate over time into strong support for the US as well. Witness the many members of the US military being respected and honored in strongly immigrant suburbs – being part of the US military is not usually disparaged in the local “barrios” as it is on the Berkeley campus.

 

In the area of recycling, Spanish speakers are past masters: Nothing much is thrown out; most of the second-hand cars, appliances, TVs and furniture live long and productive lives. In their way, these are very “green” communities. In Malibu and Beverly Hills, cars have a 3 year life expectancy – Nissans and Toyotas regularly reach 200,000 miles in East LA amongst construction workers and pool cleaners. America’s enormous disinterest in recycling, in maintaining existing electronics, distances our country from the rest of the world in a seemingly never-ending banquet of consumerism, with most happy to waste resources and expand garbage dumps with a frivolity absent in the Latino community.

 

Many see immigrants as outsiders who dilute the American tradition and culture. To the contrary, many immigrants may retain more family values (values that we seem to have lost), and may indeed be closer to the founding principles of this nation.

 

We have much to learn as a country, not only to teach; we are consumed in protecting our rights and largely ignorant of our responsibilities.

 

Immigrants tend to prioritize family and community over materialism and influence. Perhaps they are the splash of cold water we need to jolt us out of our complacency and away from a fragmented culture, an alienated, technological, iPad and iPhone existence.

The Deterioration of Family Values R6

Comment to: Pro-Homosexual Advocate Destroys Traditional Marriage Banner

 

Since World War 2 when women were encouraged to join the work force en mass, to replace the men who went to war and keep the economy and the war effort going.

 

There has been a deterioration of family values and a breakdown of the family unit, a trend where a mother was not at home to take care of her children, monitor their behavior, help with the homework and discipline when and where necessary.

 

The advancement in technology has harmed family values. The Media and Television has totally destroyed any comprehension of values in our society. We have become a materialistic society – No holds barred. 

 

The lack of discipline and total disregard for authority and respect is clear to anyone who has watched the past 50 years and seen our society’s values deteriorate.

 

One example alone is that 50 years ago a teacher was happy to go to school to teach, a teacher was respected and looked up-to, a teacher could discipline.  Today teachers fear for their lives they are petrified by their students, discipline is restricted both to teachers and parents alike.

 

This scenario caries on to other social interactions of society today, and the situation is getting worse and worse every year.

 

You will notice that many families who come from other countries have a very strong family values, tradition, good education, respect and the children excel in their studies. That is because they have not had the chance to be influenced by our overly liberal society.

 

The education of our children begins at home and continues in school – the parents and the school must take a proactive approach to teach our children values and respect.

 

In today’s society a teacher is not permitted to discipline a student, the teachers will be sued, not to mention that teachers fears for their safety.

 

Parents in today’s society are also restricted as to how to discipline their children; in many cases parents are getting sued. In many cases children would never dream of treating their parents with such disrespect 50 years ago. Today some parents are afraid of their own children.

 

Abuse has been and will be with society to eternity that does not give society the right to prohibit discipline; a few acts of abuse should not cause society to prohibit proper discipline.

 

When an individual or individuals utilize a vehicle to commit a crime cause the death of others, does society prohibit vehicles altogether, no, a vehicle is very important for our everyday life.

 

Well, the discipline of our children by parents and teachers is extremely important for our society and the preservation of humanity.

 

It seems that our society is so busy chasing the dollar, fame and glory, that anything goes all values goes out the window. We should be an example of honesty, integrity and respect to our children.

 

Are Americans patriotic and proud enough to defend, protect and bring family values back to America? Is America ready to fight for honesty integrity and justice in our society, eliminate corruption and fraud, waste and self serving programs?

 

Re-invigorate our economy, rebuild our industrial base and decrease our dependence on foreign economies and resources.

We all want health, happiness, prosperity and life PS We, the people, are losing our values. Drunk with decades of material indulgence unbalanced by authentic spiritual endeavor, we’re fast becoming corrupt. We look to objects for happiness and fulfillment. We go shopping when we feel empty and depressed. We elevate billionaires and Hollywood entertainers to positions of public acclaim they have not earned.

 

AMERICA IS not experiencing a crisis of leadership so much as a crisis of values. Politicians cannot provide them; they are mere caretakers of public business, and are as much in need of values guidance as the rest of us.

Christianity: Homosexuality is Barbaric


Sin Nature v. Spiritual Nature

 

John R. Houk

Gay activists and Leftist blogs are apparently all agog with horror over Marcus Bachmann’s comment that was to go something like gays are barbarians. Left Wingers jumped on the husband of Michele Bachmann as a homophobic racist. In this world steeped in political correctness such a statement is criticized as coming from a moron and a Presidential candidate that is married to a moron cannot be eligible for President.

 

This is the first I have heard of this Leftist-homosexual hullaballoo; however if Marcus Bachmann said such a statement in the context that Leftists are implying then more power to Marcus. I would add that the practice of homosexuality is a deviant ungodly act that should be condemned rather than to be praised as natural. Homosexuality is UNNATURAL.

 

Alas it appears Marcus’ comment was taken out of context. From a Christian perspective any lifestyle that leads to sin is a rejection of God. Homosexuality is not the only lifestyle practiced openly in America that is ungodly. Although anyone could name more but here is a biggie: Cohabitation outside the holy institution of matrimony of one man and woman is as callous a sin as a lifestyle of homosexuality. This is the context that Marcus Bachmann’s thought was spoken.
