My Blog Platforms, a WordPress Thanks & Adam Flanders


John R. Houk

© September 3, 2018

I operate blogs on three different platforms: Blogger, WordPress and Overblog. In full disclosure, I’ve always considered my Blogger account (SlantRight 2.0) to be my flagship blog.

 

The WordPress blog is the NeoConservative Christian  Right or simply NCCR. Yup, I have some Neoconservative leanings in that I am very supportive in an aggressive Foreign Policy that places American National Interests in preeminence and a very powerful military to backup U.S. National Interests. There was a time I was very supportive of nation-building (similar to post WWII Germany & Japan), believing instilling Western Representative Government would align a former despotic nation with American Interests. BUT since we invaded Afghanistan and Iraq and it became apparent the inherent Muslim populace were more devoted to despotic Islamic Sharia and principles than the concept of Liberty and Freedom, it is now my opinion nations dominated by Islam are incapable of Western values of Free Choice, individual Liberty and inalienable Rights. Ergo, nation-building in nations dominated by Islam or nations that have experienced a Judeo-Christian heritage cannot ever be trained to accept Western Values.

 

And the blog platform that garners the least attention yet still is amazingly growing is my Overblog location – Ubiquitous8Thoughts. Overblog’s base of operation caters to the EU particularly France and the UK. It fascinates me that Overblog has not enforced the anti-Free Speech laws on my blog which is quite American in expressing Conservative, Biblical and Counterjihad thoughts. If anti-Free Speech censoring ever begins at Ubiquitous8Thoughts, that will be the time my blogging on Overblog will cease.

 

Now I come to the purpose of this post.

 

I had cross posted with comment the Mass Resistance exposé on Adam Flanders man/boy sex issue relating to convictions for having homosexual sex with a minor boy in Maine circa 2012. In those posts Mr. Flanders complained to WordPress that I posted his mug shot from being arrested. Flanders issued a Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) infringement notice against me via WordPress. The Flanders objective was to get the mug shots removed from my blog.

 

At this point I considered removing the mug shots on my own volition hoping perhaps Flanders had seen the ungodly errors of his way. So I did a simple Google search to see if I could discover what Flanders was up to the six years.

 

At least the simple look did not show Flanders had any homosexual pedophilia legal issues with the law. However I did discover Flanders has a homosexual activist slant. Here’s how I made that conclusion from a 2017 blog post from Adam Flanders:

 

Hey! Sunny [Blog Editor:  Adam Edward harland Flanders apparently now goes by Adam Sunny Flanders] here. Check out my site and feel free to contact me. You’ll find links to my resumé, research, digital artwork, and much more. If you’d like me to create something for you, such as a website, CG animation, an LED-lit sign, etc. just ask and we can work something out – my rates are very reasonable. Please visit my company website, Seashore Design for more information and to view my work.

 

I’m very much a Romantic at heart: “marked by the imaginative or emotional appeal of what is heroic, adventurous, remote, mysterious, or idealized; marked by expressions of love or affection.”

 

Look to the Western Sky        Monday, June 26, 2017

 

I’ve been living in California for a month now and I’ve been enjoying it very much. The first few weeks were very busy getting a California driver’s license and registering my car (which is from here), finding a good gym membership, and taking care of all those other little details. I’ve been volunteering with the San Diego Zoo and I just started a cool new job in horticulture.

 

My timing was good – Orange County Pride kicked off last week and they had a fully loaded schedule culminating in the all-night Laguna Beach Party. I’ve made lots of new friends and I’m looking forward to meeting more!

 

To be honest, I miss my family and the poms a lot, as well as my friends in Maine and Louisiana. Home is always where the heart is (so maybe I can get them to move out here, hehe). It was a difficult decision to leave, but a big part of me feels like I belong here. I often felt like a square peg in a round hole when I lived in Maine. SoCal values align much better with my own – health conscious people, environmental protection, and science and tech everywhere, not to mention it’s so much easier to be a vegetarian here. And no snow! Each region of SoCal has its own subculture, but I’m quickly adapting to life in the OC. (AdamFlanders.com)

 

Obviously Mr. Flanders is quite devoted to homosexual activism and lifestyle. Logic can suppose Mr. Flanders still has an eye for minor boys which would be much easier to explore in California than in Maine. BUT that is just a presumptive guess and not a fact of knowledge.

 

Here are the links on NCCR that has 2012 posts on Adam Flanders some of which has his mug shot:

 

 

 

 

And here are the corresponding Mass Resistance links that were either cross posted or a corresponded email alert was cross posted:

 

 

 

 

In case you’re interested, the Flanders mug shot photo is still up at Mass Resistance.

 

Nope, I’m not removing the Flanders mug shot from NCCR; however neither am I going to repost it here to further aggravate Mr. Flanders.

 

Flanders did his best to get his Maine convictions thrown out, even going through Federal Court system. You can read the details of the Federal Court actions including Flanders’ lame excuses of self-defense HERE (Adam E. Flanders v. State of Maine [in Federal Court – 22 page PDF]).

 

And here is the “Conclusion” judgement by the Federal Judge:

 

I conclude, as indicated above with respect to each of the claims, that Flanders suffered no violation of his constitutional right to counsel or his right to enter a knowing and voluntary plea. I therefore conclude that the post-conviction court’s decision in conjunction with Flanders’s state postconviction petitions was neither contrary to nor an unreasonable application of federal law. See 28 U.S.C. §2254(d)(1). On that basis, I recommend that this Court deny Flanders relief under 28 U.S.C. § 2254, with prejudice, and dismiss his federal petitions. I further recommend that certificates of appealability should not issue in the event Flanders files notices of appeal because there is no substantial showing of the denial of a constitutional right within the meaning of 28 U.S.C. § 2253(c). (Bold text by Blog Editor)

 

A resumé is a decent snapshot of history. With that in mind, you can go to AdamFlanders.com to read the Flanders resumé posted there. And here is the Flanders LinkedIn account to glean more info if you choose.

And I need to mention there have been several attempts to hack the NCCR blog to change its password. Is it Flanders? I can’t tell you that, but with the trouble Flanders is trying to cause WordPress over his mug shots it could be a logical leap of assumption.

 

To WordPress’ credit, they have deemed the Adam Flanders DMCA accusations as bogus. Below is the cross post of the WordPress email notifying me of the issue.

Answering Ren Time’s Defense of Homosexuality


John R. Houk

© May 22, 2018

 

I moderate all comments on my SlantRight 2.0 blog. Unfortunately I don’t always get to them in a timely manner. I approved a comment to the post “If your school allows ‘Day of Silence’, keep your child home this Friday”. The post was a cross post of an AFA announcement that LGBTQ proponents were pushing Public Schools to have a Day of Silence to honor the homosexual movement in America on or around April 27, 2018.

 

Needless to say, I was not pleased that homosexual activists are using the same Public Schools to promote the godless homosexual lifestyle that Christians were told could not pray because Judicial Activism used Thomas Jefferson’s wording in a letter that does NOT appear in the Constitution, to exclude all things Christian from taxpayer supported activities.

 

The Courts is how all things Left-Wing have corrupted all thing moral in the United States of America.

 

I received a comment from a person who indicated he was a proud member of the Lutheran Church. God have mercy on the Lutheran Church if they promote homosexuality of the express condemnation of the practice in the Word of God.

The depravity of a LGBTQ kind-of-Community around Sodom and Gomorrah in Abraham’s day:

 

19 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. And he said, “Here now, my lords, please turn in to your servant’s house and spend the night, and wash your feet; then you may rise early and go on your way.”

 

And they said, “No, but we will spend the night in the open square.”

But he insisted strongly; so they turned in to him and entered his house. Then he made them a feast, and baked unleavened bread, and they ate.

 

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.

 

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.

 

12 Then the men said to Lot, “Have you anyone else here? Son-in-law, your sons, your daughters, and whomever you have in the city—take them out of this place! 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.” (Genesis 19: 1-4, 10-13 NKJV)

 

And here:

 

You shall not lie with a male as with a woman. It is an abomination. (Leviticus 18: 22 NKJV)

 

And here:

 

18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who [a]suppress the truth in unrighteousness,

 

26 For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their [a]women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. 27 Likewise also the [b]men, leaving the natural use of the [c]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. (Romans 1: 18, 26-27 NKJV)

 

Friends this is only a Bible sampling showing homosexuality is not the Creator’s plan for life. No matter how Liberal Christian Churches twist the real meaning of God’s Word or even deny God’s Word by shoving it into the realm of archaic irrelevance, the actual meaning is true, good and righteous.

 

Below is the unedited comment made by Ren Time followed by my answer.

 

Ren Time May 17, 2018 at 10:00 AM

 

where in the Bible does it say that LGBTQ+ is not welcome. I’m Honestly wondering why so many people are against LGBTQ+. The bible does say to “Love thy Neighbor as yourself” Mark 12:31. So why are you against this?

~ A Memeber of The Lutheran Church

 

Hmm… Let’s look at the first sentence:

 

where in the Bible does it say that LGBTQ+ is not welcome.”

 

Let’s be CLEAR what LGBTQ+ represents:

 

LGBTQ+ is an acronym for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans, Queer/Questioning, and others. (LGBTQ+ Terminology; University of Central FloridaSocial Justice and AdvocacyStudent Development and Enrollment Services)

 

In order to not be accused too much for source bigotry, note the above quote is from a university that is fully supportive of the homosexual lifestyle as a natural act as opposed to an unnatural act. You can go to the above pdf for the pro-gay terminology, but I am going to use other sources either neutral or pro-Biblical.

 

(L)esbian:

 

a woman who is sexually attracted to other women :a female homosexual (Merriam-Webster Learner’s Dictionary)

 

… where did the term “lesbians” come from. For starters, it did not come from the Bible. It is believed the term came from the reference to residents living on the island of Lesbos. This island, the third largest one in the Aegean Sea, was home in the early 7th century B.C. to a female poet named Sappho. She was known for writing about her passionate relationships with other females. (What does the Bible say about LESBIANS?BibleStudy.org)

 

(G)ay:

 

  1. of, relating to, or exhibiting sexual desire or behavior directedtoward a person or persons of one’s own sex; homosexual: a gay couple.

 

  1. of, indicating, or supporting homosexual interests or issues: a gay organization.

 

  1. Slang: Often Disparaging and Offensive. awkward, stupid, or bad; lame: This game is boring and really, really gay. (Dictionary.com)

 

It should first be noted that the KJV Bible does not use the word gay in its text. The word itself comes from the Middle English word “gai” which came into existence around 1275 to 1325 A.D. (dictionary.com). It originally meant something that was fast, sudden, merry or showy. The use of the word gay as a synonym for a homosexual began sometime around the late 1930s and 40s. (What does the Bible say about being Gay?BibleStudy.org)

 

(B)isexual:

 

Sexually attracted not exclusively to people of one particular gender; attracted to both men and women. (OxfordDictionaries.org)

 

Though the Bible does not directly speak about bisexuality, it frequently addresses issues related to sexual ethics. A look at some of these principles offers clarity regarding God’s view of the practice of bisexuality.

 

First, sexual relationships were created by God to take place within the context of marriage between a man and a woman. Genesis 2:24 teaches, “Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and they shall become one flesh.” Though the Bible records other forms of relationships, it only specifically presents one man and one woman enjoying sexual relations within marriage as God’s design.

 

Second, since bisexuality includes sexual relationships outside of marriage, it is also excluded as a form of sexual immorality. First Corinthians 6:18 clearly teaches, “Flee from sexual immorality. Every other sin a person commits is outside the body, but the sexually immoral person sins against his own body.”

 

Third, bisexuality is also excluded from Christian practice since it includes same sex relationships that are prohibited in the Bible. In the Old Testament, same sex activity was called an abomination (Leviticus 18:22). In the New Testament, Jesus speaks directly of marriage (and sexual relations) between one man and one woman in marriage (Matthew 19). The apostle Paul mentioned that some of the believers in Corinth had been involved in same sex relations before becoming believers, saying, “And such were some of you. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God” (1 Corinthians 6:11). Same sex activity is clearly excluded from the lifestyle of those who follow Christ. This would certainly also include bisexual relations. (Does the Bible say anything about bisexuality? Is being bisexual a sin?CompellingTruth.org)

 

(T)rans or Transgender:

 

used to describe someone who feels that they are not the same gender (= sex) as the one they had or were said to have at birth (Cambridge Dictionary)

 

Someone who is transgender has a gender identity which does not fully correspond to the sex assigned to them at birth. (CollinsDictionary.com)

 

 

The biggest claim of the transgender movement is that a man who thinks he’s a woman can really be a woman, and vice versa. You see this in many ways — from preferred pronouns, sex reassignment surgeries, and demands to use the restroom of perceived rather than given gender.

 

The problem is that this is a philosophical claim that is not true, and can never be true, in any way or form. A man’s chromosomes cannot be engineered into female chromosomes. Altering one’s appearance cosmetically or surgically cannot change the underlying reality of a person’s biological make-up. The psychology of the mind cannot override the facts of a person’s biological markers. The transgender revolution demands that we believe falsehoods about human nature. And truth and falsehood have never been a matter of majority vote, because we know that there is a Creator who has the authority to decide and state what is right and wrong.

 

… (5 Things Every Christian Must Know About the Transgender Debate; By Andrew T. Walker; TheGoodBook.com; 7/28/17)

 

(Q)Queer/Questioning:

 

Dictionary.com has 12 definitions for “Queer.” The definitions are divided between adjective, noun, verb and the slang of those grammatical divisions. Under adjective, there are four definitions of “queer” that were normal before the homosexual lifestyle appropriated the term. My focus is what dictionary.com calls slang –

 

5. [Adjective] Slang.

a. Usually Disparaging and Offensive. (of a person) gay or lesbian.

b. noting or relating to a sexual orientation or gender identity that falls outside the heterosexual mainstream or the gender binary: queer subcultures.

 

10. [noun] Slang.

a. Disparaging and Offensive. a term used to refer to a a person who is gay or lesbian.

b. a person whose sexual orientation or gender identity falls outside the heterosexual mainstream or the gender binary.

 

Merriam-Webster.com:

 

2. d. often disparaging + offensive

 

(1) : sexually attracted to members of the same sex : homosexualgay

(2) : of, relating to, or used by homosexuals : gay 4b

 

“(Q)ueer/Questioning” is a bit difficult to locate via a Biblical perspective. Search engines typically go the homosexual issue when looking for a Biblical perspective of the term. Hence, I’ll use the definitions from the pro-homosexual “LGBTQ+ Terminology”:

 

Queer

 

  1. An umbrella term for the LGBTQ+ community (ex: the queer community).

 

  1. A sexual orientation that is intentionally left vague. Many people identify as queer because they feel that no other sexuality term applies to them. People who identify as queer might also do so for political reasons: to specifically and publically [sic] reject society’s prevailing view of sexuality. Some people experience “queer” as a slur, so use this term with care.

 

Questioning-

 

Being unsure of your gender identity, being unsure of your sexual orientation, or both. Many people go through a stage of questioning during their lives, sometimes several times. This can be because they learn new words that fit them better, or it can be that their actual feelings of gender or attraction change over time.

 

Evidently the homosexual community keeps adding initials to their acronym as indicated by the last character “+”.The “LGBTQ+ Terminology” pdf translates the “+” as “and others”. Unfortunately, the “and others” is not addressed in the terminology pdf. There are plenty of terms however that a Biblical Christian more than likely have an unfamiliarity.

 

The Urban Dictionary defines “+” as “  meaning other sexualitys such as pansexual, asexual and omnisexual extra.”

 

Pansexuality according to Merriam-Webster:

 

1: of, relating to, or characterized by sexual desire or attraction that is not limited to people of a particular gender identity or sexual orientation

 

  • Pansexualpeople are attracted to all kinds of people, regardless of their gender, sex or presentation. —Farhana Khan

 

Also: not solely homosexual or heterosexual

 

  • The famous 0-6 scale … was devised to chart sexual proclivities, from purely heterosexual (0) to purely homosexual (6). Kinsey felt humans are pansexual(most falling somewhere between 0 and 6), and restrictions imposed by society and religion lead to sexual maladjustments. —Lisa C. Hickman

 

2: tending to suffuse all experience and conduct with erotic feeling

 

  • Although Whitman’s impulses were homoerotic, he was pansexual in the sense that he could find the driving force of something such as sex in almost everything …  —Peter Craven

 

— pansexual noun

 

  • pansexualis someone who can be attracted to males, females, transgender people and those who identify as non-binary (not female or male). —Mel Evans

 

Evidently “pansexual” and “omnisexual” are similar yet distinct. Check out this explanation from Affinity Magazine:

 

Throughout pride month I saw the terms pansexual and omnisexual being used interchangeably. However, they are not synonyms of each other (thus being why they each have their own day during pride month); there is a big difference between the two that needs to be acknowledged.

 

 

Both pansexual and omnisexual are rather new words in relation to labeling sexualities, but both stem from different languages. The prefix pan- comes from the Greek word ‘pan’ meaning all, while the prefix omni- comes from the Latin word ‘omni’, which also means all. But despite the fact that both of the terms contain a prefix meaning ‘all’, there is still a key difference between the two.

 

The key difference being the fact that pansexuality is the attraction to people regardless of gender, meaning that they could date a man, a woman, someone identifying as non-binary or anyone else without said person’s gender playing a part in whether they date them or have the capacity to love them. Whereas omnisexual is the attraction to anyone despite their gender, meaning they could also date a man, a woman, someone identifying as non-binary or anyone else, while noticing their gender but not caring how they identify. (What Is The Difference Between Pansexuality And Omnisexuality? By PIPPA LACEY; Affinity Magazine; 7/11/17)

 

WHAT in the godless world are these guys trying to justify as natural!!!????

 

These explanations are NOT natural. They are not only unnatural; these explanations literally demonstrate what rebellion against the Creator looks like.

 

So Ren Time (I’d be surprised if this is not a pseudonym), one may not find “LGBTQ+” in the Bible, But those descriptions are definitely written off as ungodly counter-Creator separating from the Presence of God practices.

 

The next question by Ren Time is a bit perplexing to Christians that are fully aware that homosexuality is ungodly but and versed well enough in the Word of God to respond with firm compassion. Ren Time then asks, “The bible does say to “Love thy Neighbor as yourself” Mark 12:31. So why are you against this?

 

In rightly discerning God’s Word, one should discover that under the New Covenant established by the Blood of Jesus in the torturous whipping and Crucifixion of Jesus the price was paid for humanity’s inherited sin bequeathed by Adam by believing Satan in Eden rather obeying God pertaining to the fruit of the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil.

 

Christians should love the godly and the ungodly alike. BUT, Christians should NOT support the practices of sin that separates humanity from God’s Presence. That means Christians should freely condemn sin without being the Judge/Executioner of sin. Redemption is about Forgiveness of sin, Acceptance of contrition for sin and Restoration to the Presence of God.

 

This is when such oft used phrases as “Hate the sin and not Sinner” should mean something. It is the place of Christians to use acts of violence against the sinners that practice the various forms of homosexuality especially after the law of the land has legalized the godless practice.

 

The duty of a Christian is to pray for the ungodly just as Jesus did even right from the Cross before spirit left His body:

 

Then Jesus said, “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they do.”

 

And they divided His garments and cast lots. (Luke 23: 34 NKJV)

 

Jesus the Son of God and the son of Man via Mary, even after humanity reared its undeserving head in the death of the Christ on the Cross. For this context take the time to read: Matthew 27: 32-44; Mark 15: 25-32; Luke 23: 32-43 NKJV.

 

So indeed Ren Time, love your neighbor as yourself, but also the heed the rest of the Word of God:

 

17 “Do not think that I came to destroy the Law or the Prophets. I did not come to destroy but to fulfill. 18 For assuredly, I say to you, till heaven and earth pass away, one [a]jot or one [b]tittle will by no means pass from the law till all is fulfilled. 19 Whoever therefore breaks one of the least of these commandments, and teaches men so, shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven; but whoever does and teaches them, he shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.20 For I say to you, that unless your righteousness exceeds the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, you will by no means enter the kingdom of heaven. (Matthew 5: 17-20 NKJV)

 

Here are some parting Words written in the Word of God about the mission of Jesus Christ the Son of God to a world enveloped in darkness:

 

1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not [a]comprehend it.

 

That[a] was the true Light which gives light to every man coming into the world.

 

10 He was in the world, and the world was made through Him, and the world did not know Him. 11 He came to His [b]own, and His [c]own did not receive Him. 12 But as many as received Him, to them He gave the [d]right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name: 13 who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.

 

14 And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth. (John 1: 1-5, 9-14 NKJV)

Extreme LGBTQ Minority Crazy Political Clout


John R. Houk

© September 17, 2017

 

The ungodly LGBTQ must be concerned if sentient non-earth people will be offended if a Family/Biblical values person heads NASA. Apparently, the homosexual lobby fears space aliens might be influenced in the space exploration of the final frontier.

 

Rep. Jim Bridenstine’s (R-OK) NASA nomination is being opposed because he is wise enough to not agree with a Gay lifestyle. Of course, the Leftist MSM is lining up behind the godless LGBTQ. How can a group of people who ONLY represent 4.1% of the population (Pew Research 2016) have that kind of political clout? If you can’t agree that the LGBTQ is a special Rights group of people you must be a racist evil homophobe. As if homosexuals are a race of people rather than a group of people that chose a deviant lifestyle.

 

Yup, I said “deviant”. I don’t care if Medical organizations, Psychologist organizations, and/or Psychiatric organizations were essentially pressured decades ago into normalizing homosexuals rather than keeping with their original analysis that same-sex relations is deviant.

 

The American Psychiatric Association (APA) was harassed by political pressure rather than scientific data to end the mental deviancy listing of homosexual practices:

 

They [i.e. Rogers H. Wright and Nicholas A. Cummings] got established and revered practitioners to write chapters which explore these important issues. The following regarding the removal of homosexuality from the DSM in 1973 was written as a matter of verifiable fact:

 

“The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of the American Psychiatric Association yielded suddenly and completely to political pressure when in 1973 it removed homosexuality as a treatable aberrant condition. A political firestorm had been created by gay activists within psychiatry, with intense opposition to normalizing homosexuality coming from a few outspoken psychiatrists who were demonized and even threatened, rather than scientifically refuted. Psychiatry’s House of Delegates sidestepped the conflict by putting the matter to a vote of the membership, marking for the first time in the history of healthcare that a diagnosis or lack of diagnosis was decided by popular vote than by scientific evidence”(page 9) The truth on how homosexuality was removed from the DSM by APA – Commentary on Dr Yik’s response to Lawrence Khong; POSTED BY CONCERNEDSGCITIZEN; Homosexuality and Science; 9/14/13

I can’t blame the article writer using a pseudonym. Homosexual activists use both defamation – to shame – and violence – to strike fear – against truth tellers to silence them from the American public.

 

Here is a brief description when science was abandoned for submission to political pressure:

 

  • 1973 – Board of Trustees of The American Psychiatric Association (APA) approves the deletion of homosexuality from the DSM-II and substitutes a diagnosis of “sexual orientation disturbance.” Intense discussion and debate followed.

 

  • On Dec 15 1973, the Board of Trustees of the APA voted to delete homosexuality altogether from the DSM. Opposition from several psychiatrists immediately followed. A referendum on the Board’s decision was called.

 

  • 1974 – the entire membership of the APA was polled for their support or rejection of the Board’s decision. žOf the 10,000 voting members, nearly 40% opposed the Board’s decision to normalize homosexuality. Decision was hardly unanimous. (Controversially, a survey conducted in 1979 asked 10,000 psychiatrists if they felt homosexuality “usually represented a pathological adaptation.” ž69% of respondents said “yes,” and 60% said homosexual men were less capable of “mature, loving relationships” than heterosexual men.)

 

The author of Destructive Trends in mental health was right to conclude:

 

“Diagnosis today in psychology and psychiatry is cluttered with politically correct verbiage, which seemingly has taken precedence over sound professional experience and scientific validation.” (Ibid.)

 

Since the APA barely removed homosexuality as a deviant mental disorder, the American Left and Homosexual Activists were well armed with the needed propaganda to slowly persuade the American public to accept ungodly homosexuality.

 

Even a recent scientific study revealed by Life Site circa November 2016 show homosexuality is not normal:

 

Those who are setting our so-called “values”, such as the small but powerful group of academics, mainstream media, and homosexual activists, do so by attempting to impose strange myths and ideas that have no scientific basis.

 

These myths include the one that homosexuals are “born that way”, can’t change, and must be accepted for “who they are”. Further, those claiming they are a different gender than that with which they were born, i.e. the transgendered, who “feel” they belong to other than their gender at birth, must be accepted as such.

 

The public is supposed to put aside its intelligence and common sense, and respectfully bow collectively in obeisance to these “expert” opinions. These opinions, however, are complete and utter hogwash.

 

… However, the myth-makers attempt to force their nonsense on us by the heavy hand of the law, claiming that it’s “discrimination” to refuse to accept the myths as truth.  Jurisdictions which don’t obey their rulings are economically punished, parents are forbidden to protect their children from the monstrous “bathroom” laws that permit males to use girls’ showers, lockers and change rooms.  It’s all a fraud based on propaganda with no scientific legitimacy.

 

Bombshells Explode The Myths

 

 

The first bombshell was a landmark study published in The Journal – The New Atlantis, (August 23, 2016). The Journal is a well-known journal of science, technology and ethics based in Washington D.C.  This article analysed [sic] the scientific evidence of LGBT issues published to date in scientific journals.

 

… Dr. Mayer stated he supports every sentence in this report without reservation since it is about science and medicine.  He also stated he was alarmed to learn during his review of over 500 scientific articles that the LGBT community bears a disproportionate rate of mental health problems compared to the population as a whole.

 

  • The other author is Dr. Paul McHugh, one of the leading psychiatrists in the world. … These scientists reviewed hundreds of peer reviewed studies on sexual orientation and gender identity from the biological, psychological and social sciences.  Their conclusions were as follows:

 

  • The belief that gender identity is an innate, fixed human property independent of biological sex – so that a person might be a ‘man trapped in a woman’s body’ or ‘a woman trapped in a man’s body’ – is not supported by scientific evidence.

 

  • Only a minority of children who express gender-atypical thoughts or behaviour will continue to do so into adolescence or adulthood. There is no evidencethat all such children should be encouraged to become transgender, much less subjected to hormone treatments or surgery.

 

  • Non-heterosexual and transgender people have higher rates of mental health problems (anxiety, depression, suicide), as well as behavioral and social problems (substance abuse, intimate partner violence), than the general population. Discrimination alone does not account for the entire disparity.

 

The second bombshell was exploded by a top researcher for the American Psychological Association (APA), lesbian activist, Dr. Lisa Diamond, co-author-in-chief of ‘the APA Handbook’ of sexuality and psychology and one of the APA’s most respected members.  She admitted that sexual orientation was “fluid” and not unchangeable.  By doing so, Dr. Diamond confirmed that the myth that “homosexuals can’t change” is now a dead-end theory.  She summarized the relevant findings in a lecture at Cornell University stating that abundant research has now established that sexual orientation – including attraction, behaviour and self-identity – is fluid for both adolescents and adults for both genders. (The LGBT fraud has been exposed, and they’re definitely not happy about it; By Claire Chretien; Life Site News; 11/15/16 1:37 pm EST)

 

The Multiculturalist Left and the lying Homosexual activist-lobbyists have been brainwashing Americans for decades. Even now I am guessing NO one has heard the recent science confirming the brainwashing lies.

 

ERGO, the reality of the Will of God found in His Word shows the purpose of the Creator of one male and one female is the standard He intends for His creation. If God’s Word calls same-sex relations an abomination in His sight, then it is so – Leviticus 18: 22; 20: 13 NKJV:

 

22 You shall not lie with a male as with a woman. It is an abomination.

 

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.

 

God in Christ is no less approving –Romans 1: 18-19, 26-27 NKJV:

 

God’s Wrath on Unrighteousness

 

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.

 

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.

 

And yet, it is not God’s will that any human should perish in eternal separation from His Presence. All humanity is born in a sin nature. That is the reason the Almighty emptied Himself of Divine prerogatives and became fully human to born as a perfect human to be the sacrificial lamb for Adam’s hereditary disobedience.

 

Jesus the infant was conceive in the womb of a human female by the power of the Holy Spirit (not human copulation as the Muslims erroneously believe). The infant Jesus became a man. Jesus as the Son of God and the son of man simultaneously, ministered His Divine purpose for three years then became the Lamb of God dying for humanity’s sin nature so that all that believe in the Resurrection of Jesus are re-united with God Almighty in spirit now and in our resurrection from the dead our natural appearance will be changed spirit, soul and body –Galatians 3: 10-14 NKJV:

 

The Law Brings a Curse

 

10 For as many as are of the works of the law are under the curse; for it is written, “Cursed is everyone who does not continue in all things which are written in the book of the law, to do them.”[a] 11 But that no one is justified by the law in the sight of God is evident, for “the just shall live by faith.”[b] 12 Yet the law is not of faith, but “the man who does them shall live by them.”[c]

 

13 Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us (for it is written, “Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree”[d]), 14 that the blessing of Abraham might come upon the Gentiles in Christ Jesus, that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.

 

I have no idea how those of the Jewish faith handle the brutal punishments of the Law in this modern era, but for Christians the punished prescribed in the Law in this life has eternally been paid for by the Lamb of God. That includes the numerous sin punishments that is also applied to heterosexuals and as to the subject of this post, those who have made the choice of a homosexual lifestyle.

 

I am fairly certain that homosexual apologists and Leftist Multiculturalists will try to disarm God’s Word by attempting to twist it to bend to human academics to fit their world view. That is unfortunately the problem with Humanist thinking. Humanism intentionally dismisses the Divine paradigm because world order darkness blinds Humanists unable to see the Light of Salvation of Jesus Christ the Son of God/Lamb of God that can Redeem those stuck in Humanist darkness.

 

That is the plus of Rep. Jim Bridenstine, President Trump’s nomination to lead NASA. If Bridenstine is a good Christian, he will not make a person blinded in homosexual darkness suffer for their social choices but rather direct them according to merit. That is probably unlike a virulent homosexual that would make it their life’s aim to persecute a Christian employee for their beliefs with shaming or worse – violence.

 

In essence, the Left and Homosexual activists are actually attempting to utilize a religious test to disqualify Jim Bridenstine from being the next NASA Administrator. I like the observations made by Mark Whittington on the Bridenstine nomination:

 

However, it appears that Bridenstine is being subjected to a religious test for the position that he has been nominated for. Many people oppose some items on the LGBT agenda out of sincere religious conviction. Bridenstine’s private and political beliefs are being used as a disqualifier for becoming head of NASA, even though those views would not affect his conduct as administrator. The space agency has no influence whatsoever on whether or not people of the same sex have the right to marry. That issue was decided by a ruling of the Supreme Court and is now the law of the land.

 

One wonders if these questions are going to come up during the hearings when they finally take place. Bridenstine will likely reply that he will follow the law, as he is obligated to do, and perhaps openly wonder what these issues have to do with returning to the moon and re-establishing American dominance in space. (Now Jim Bridenstine is in trouble with the LGBT community; By Mark Whittington; Blasting News; 9/14/17)

 

The LGBTQ ungodly nuts are trying to same political muscle they used way back in 1973 to disqualify Jim Bridenstine in 2017. The Left-Wing Washington Post actually has a news story of those that are supportive of the Bridenstine nomination largely due to the fact his Congressional record demonstrated a huge support for NASA’s space exploration agenda with the addition of private capital cooperation:

 

 

Bridenstine’s nomination comes as NASA is increasingly relying on the private sector to perform tasks that were once the exclusive domain of the government. …

 

Now, under Trump, the growing private sector is looking to capitalize on its momentum and partner with NASA to go even farther — to the moon and deep space. And it regards Bridenstine as someone who would be good for business.

 

“NASA needs dedicated and inspired leadership, and Representative Bridenstine is an outstanding choice to provide precisely that,” said S. Alan Stern, chairman of the Commercial Spaceflight Federation, an industry group representing many space companies and start-ups.

 

The Coalition for Deep Space Exploration, representing many of the big legacy contractors, said it also welcomed the nomination, saying Bridenstine “has been an active and vocal advocate for space on Capitol Hill.”

 

 

NASA is poised to ask the private sector for proposals to develop a lunar lander that could take experiments and cargo to the surface of the moon, with flights starting as early as 2018. Bridenstine, who serves in the Navy Reserve, has advocated a return to the moon, writing in a blog post last year that “from the discovery of water ice on the moon until this day, the American objective should have been a permanent outpost of rovers and machines, with occasional manned missions for science and maintenance.”

 

 

In addition to backing work with younger, entrepreneurial firms, Bridenstine has also voiced his support for the traditional industrial base, made up of behemoths such as Lockheed Martin and Boeing. They want to ensure that programs such as the Space Launch System, the massive rocket being developed by NASA, and the Orion crew capsule continue …

 

 

Mike Gold, the chairman of a commercial space advisory committee for the Federal Aviation Administration, said that Bridenstine would be able to unite the industry with “his support for a diverse array of activities such as deep-space exploration, private-sector partnerships, Earth science and technology development.” (Support builds for Bridenstine to lead NASA despite past skepticism on climate change; By Christian Davenport; WaPo; 9/11/17)

 

WaPo gravitates to the Left so it is unsurprising that the article continues by stating that in Congress Bridenstine was critical of Obama spending more on Climate Change than on weather forecasting.

 

The Senate will be involved in the confirmation hearings for Bridenstine. The Multiculturalist Dems in the Senate were extremely displeased that Bridenstine does not share the concerns of the immediacy of a doomed earth from constantly fudged statistics pointing toward Climate Change disasters.

 

Between Homosexual activists and Leftist Eco-Marxists, Bridenstine at the very least can be grilled by Leftist Senators about issues that have zero to do with the science of space exploration.

 

My fellow Okies, write, email or phone Senators Inhofe and Langford to make a stir about the real issues that Jim Bridenstine should be judged as a capable Administrator of NASA.

Homosexuals Attack Free Speech with Petition Threat


Jim Bob & Michelle Dug 2

John R. Houk

© December 5, 2014

 

Do you know who Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar are? If you do then good, you’ll already have an inkling about the nature of this post. Admittedly I never heard of them until I received an American Family Association (AFA) email alert about them. Evidently the Duggars – including their 19 children – are the stars of a family reality show on the TLC Network.

 

Duggars are a faith based family. Being Christians supporting Christian morality drives atheists, Leftists and – wait for it– homosexuals very apoplectic. Michelle Duggar has gone on record protesting a city ordinance in Fayetteville, Arkansas that allows transgender men in the Lady’s room in public places. And the real fits began against the Duggars when Michelle stuck to her Christian principles and got involved in some grassroots lobbying with robocalls condemning the Fayetteville ordinance.

 

Homosexual activists became so annoyed with Michelle Duggar that they began a Change.org petition to have the Duggar reality show “19 Kids and Counting” removed from the TLC Network line-up. 

 

This is another example of the Left Wing war on Christians, particularly against traditional Biblical based Christians that adhere to Christian morality. The propaganda from the Left and Homosexual activists that Christian morality is aberrant and offensive belief system in the 21st century.

 

It is both sad and joyous that America is in a day when homosexuals can call Christians an aberrancy and an offensive group of people. It is sad because Christianity is one of the hallmarks of America’s exceptionalism even as far back as colonial days. It is joyous because when society voluntarily falls away from the Christian faith it is one of the evidences of a soon return of Jesus Christ the Son of God to govern the entire planet as King of kings and Lord of lords.

 

3 Now as He sat on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him privately, saying, “Tell us, when will these things be? And what will be the sign of Your coming, and of the end of the age?”

 

9 “Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and kill you, and you will be hated by all nations for My name’s sake. 10 And then many will be offended, will betray one another, and will hate one another. 11 Then many false prophets will rise up and deceive many. 12 And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold. 13 But he who endures to the end shall be saved. (Matthew 24: 3, 9-13 NKJV)

 

1 Now, brethren, concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our gathering together to Him, we ask you, 2 not to be soon shaken in mind or troubled, either by spirit or by word or by letter, as if from us, as though the day of Christ[a] had come. 3 Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin[b] is revealed, the son of perdition, 4 who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God[c] in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.

 

9 The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, 10 and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. 11 And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, 12 that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

 

13 But we are bound to give thanks to God always for you, brethren beloved by the Lord, because God from the beginning chose you for salvation through sanctification by the Spirit and belief in the truth, 14 to which He called you by our gospel, for the obtaining of the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ. 15 Therefore, brethren, stand fast and hold the traditions which you were taught, whether by word or our epistle. (2 Thessalonians 2: 1-4, 9-15 NKJV)

 

Truthfully I doubt that I will ever watch the Duggar family reality show on TLC; but I can’t sit here and not do anything to stand against homosexual bullying of Christians and the opinions of Christians. The AFA email has link to their November 21 post of a petition. There are other supportive petitions to sign as well. Dear God sign every petition that supports the Christian faith above making ungodliness an accepted practice.

TLC stays mum on call for 19 Kids and Counting cancellation; 200,000 sign petition to keep the show

 

By Cath Martin

December 1, 2014

Christian Today

 

TV network TLC is staying silent in the battle of petitions over the future of reality TV show 19 Kids and Counting.

 

Pro-gay advocates have been calling for the show’s cancellation via a petition on the Change.org website, but their efforts have triggered a groundswell of support for the Duggar family from others who support their position on sexuality.

 

The Change.org petition was launched back in August attacking Michelle Duggar’s “fearmongering” and “hatred” after she publicly challenged an ordinance in Fayetteville, Arkansas, that would have allowed transgender women to use female restrooms.

 

It was also critical of the oldest son of Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar, Josh, because of his involvement with the conservative think tank, Family Research Council.

 

“Duggar words reek of ignroance and fear mongering. Just because someone is transgendered doesn’t mean they are a child predator or a rapist. The claim that this ordinance would provide predators with access to women’s restrooms in order to assault or leer at girls or women is nothing more than fear-mongering and spreading ignornace and hatred,” it read.

 

It has been signed over 170,000 times, and signatures spiked in recent weeks when it was widely publicised on entertainment media outlets.

The petition defending the family, launched a week ago on the LifeSiteNews website, has been signed by over 204,000 times.

 

“The Duggar Family is under attack from anti-marriage advocates for standing for traditional marriage,” the petition says.

 

“We commend The Duggar Family for their brave stand in defending marriage as ordained by God between one man and one woman. No individual’s sexual behavior and chosen lifestyle has the right to redefine marriage.

 

Its supporters include senator Rick Santorum, who told the website that the Duggars were “a wonderful family, and Karen and I support them and encourage folks to stand with the Duggars against these ridiculous attacks from the left”.

 

The Christian Post said it had contacted TLC for its reaction to the petitions and a spokesperson said they had no comment to make on the matter.

The House should Investigate and Subpoena Obama Administration to the Hilt


BHO calls scandals - Americans Call Crimes

John R. Houk

© June 15, 2014

 

In a recent Conservative Campaign Committee (CCC) fundraising email I discovered even more SMOKING GUN evidence that the entirety of the Obama Administration conspired to lie about the Benghazi attack to American voters for political reasons. The CCC email doesn’t harp on the political reasons as I think it should. You have to realize the political reasons were to ensure the reelection of Comrade Obama as the President of the United States of America in November 2012. The Benghazi Islamic terrorist attack on the diplomatic annex was a planned attack on September 11, 2012. Obama tried to make that attack appear to voters that the Islamic terrorist attack in Benghazi was a spontaneous motivated riot due to a sophomoric made Youtube video produced in America that was designed to be provocatively racist against Islam.

 

If you have ever gotten to see what is billed as a Youtube trailer before it was yanked you know the video is so poorly made that it is almost humorous. Unfortunately Free Speech in Islam’s Sharia Law is blasphemous so it is true Muslims were offended. SO WHAT! The Obama Administration has forced American Christians to participate in so many offensive measures from killing unborn lives (taxpayer supported abortions), forcing Christian Hospitals to perform abortions on demand, to force businesses owned by Christians to cater to the service needs of homosexuals even though that lifestyle is an oft repeated abomination to the Presence of God in the Holy Bible and more.

 

Christian Rights are vacated in the name multicultural acceptance. Christians are forced to absorb the mirth of atheistic Leftists and abortionists, Muslims spewing hate toward Christians (See Also HERE), homosexuals spewing hate toward Biblical Christians and more.

 

AND YET when a Christian or Counterjihad writer exposes what the actual Quran, Hadith and Sira of Islam do proclaim, it is called hate-speech or bigoted Islamophobia! (See Also HERE and HERE)

 

I have no doubts that the Obama Administration tried to both assuage Muslims and fool American voters that his Presidency is totally supportive of a Muslim’s right to go crazy due to multicultural deference.

 

Is lying to voters to gain an election victory a crime in the USA?

 

This is not just executive overreach. In many cases, Obama’s exercise of authoritarian power is criminal. His executive branch is responsible for violations of the Arms Export Control Act in shipping weapons to Syria, the Espionage Act in Libya, and IRS law with regard to the targeting of conservative groups. His executive branch is guilty of involuntary manslaughter in Benghazi and in the Fast and Furious scandal, and bribery in its allocation of waivers in Obamacare and tax dollars in its stimulus spending. His administration is guilty of obstruction of justice and witness tampering.

 

And yet nothing is done. (Prosecute the President; By Ben Shapiro; FrontPage Mag; 6/12/14)

 

That excerpt above lists only a fraction of the legal infractions committed either by President Obama’s direction and/or Obama’s Executive Branch. And there is no criminal investigations! Why?

 

PRESIDENTIAL IMMUNITY FROM JUDICIAL DIRECTION

 

By the decision of the Court in Mississippi v. Johnson,720 in 1867, the President was placed beyond the reach of judicial direction, either affirmative or restraining, in the exercise of his powers, whether constitutional or statutory, political or otherwise, save perhaps for what must be a small class of powers that are purely ministerial.721 An application for an injunction to forbid President Johnson to enforce the Reconstruction Acts, on the ground of their unconstitutionality, was answered by Attorney General Stanberg, who argued, inter alia, the absolute immunity of the President from judicial process.722 The Court refused to permit the filing, using language construable as meaning that the President was not reachable by judicial process but which more fully paraded the horrible consequences were the Court to act. First noting the limited meaning of the term “ministerial,” the Court observed that “[v]ery different is the duty of the President in the exercise of the power to see that the laws are faithfully executed, and among these laws the acts named in the bill. . . . The duty thus imposed on the President is in no just sense ministerial. It is purely executive and political.

 

“An attempt on the part of the judicial department of the government to enforce the performance of such duties by the President might be justly characterized, in the language of Chief Justice Marshall, as ‘an absurd and excessive extravagance.’

 

 

Rare has been the opportunity for the Court to elucidate its opinion in Mississippi v. Johnson, and, in the Watergate tapes case,724 it held the President amenable to subpoena to produce evidence for use in a criminal case without dealing, except obliquely,[p.580]with its prior opinion. The President’s counsel had argued the President was immune to judicial process, claiming “that the independence of the Executive Branch within its own sphere . . . insulates a President from a judicial subpoena in an ongoing criminal prosecution, and thereby protects confidential Presidential communications.”725 However, the Court held, “neither the doctrine of separation of powers, nor the need for confidentiality of high–level communications, without more, can sustain an absolute, unqualified Presidential privilege of immunity from judicial process under all circumstances.”726 The primary constitutional duty of the courts “to do justice in criminal prosecutions” was a critical counterbalance to the claim of presidential immunity and to accept the President’s argument would disturb the separation–of–powers function of achieving “a workable government” as well as “gravely impair the role of the courts under Art. III.”727

 

Present throughout the Watergate crisis, and unresolved by it, was the question of the amenability of the President to criminal prosecution prior to conviction upon impeachment.728 It was argued that the impeachment clause necessarily required indictment and trial in a criminal proceeding to follow a successful impeachment and that a President in any event was uniquely immune from indictment, and these arguments were advanced as one ground to deny enforcement of the subpoenas running to the President.729 Assertion of the same argument by Vice President Agnew was controverted by the Government, through the Solicitor General, but, as to the President, it was argued that for a number of constitutional [p.581]and practical reasons he was not subject to ordinary criminal process.730

 

Finally, most recently, the Court has definitively resolved one of the intertwined issues of presidential accountability. The President is absolutely immune in actions for civil damages for all acts within the “outer perimeter” of his official duties.731 The Court’s close decision was premised on the President’s “unique position in the constitutional scheme,” that is, it was derived from the Court’s inquiry of a “kind of ‘public policy’ analysis” of the “policies and principles that may be considered implicit in the nature of the President’s office in a system structured to achieve effective government under a constitutionally mandated separation of powers.”732 … Although the Court relied in part upon its previous practice of finding immunity for officers, such as judges, as to whom the Constitution is silent, although a long common–law history exists, and in part upon historical evidence, which it admitted was fragmentary and ambiguous,734 the Court’s principal focus was upon the fact that the President was distinguishable from all other executive officials. He is charged with a long list of “supervisory and policy responsibilities of utmost discretion and sensitivity,”735 and diversion of his energies by concerns with private lawsuits would “raise unique risks to the effective functioning of government.”736

 

Supplement: [P. 582, add to text following n.738:]

 

Unofficial Conduct.—In Clinton v. Jones,9 the Court, in a case of first impression, held that the President did not have qualified immunity from suit for conduct alleged to have taken place prior to his election to the Presidency, which would entitle him to delay of both the trial and discovery. The Court held that its precedents affording the President immunity from suit for his official conduct—primarily on the basis that he should be enabled to perform his duties effectively without fear that a particular decision might give rise to personal liability— were inapplicable in this kind of case. Moreover, the separation–of–powers doctrine did not require a stay of all private actions against the President. Separation of powers is preserved by guarding against the encroachment or aggrandizement of one of the coequal branches of the Government at the expense of another. However, a federal trial court tending to a civil suit in which the President is a party performs only its judicial function, not a function of another branch. No decision by a trial court could curtail the scope of the President’s powers. The trial court, the Supreme Court observed, had sufficient powers to accommodate the President’s schedule and his workload, so as not to impede the President’s performance of his duties. Finally, the Court stated its belief that allowing such suits to proceed would not generate a large volume of politically motivated harassing and frivolous litigation. Congress has the power, the Court advised, if it should think necessary to legislate, to afford the President protection.10 (CRS ANNOTATED CONSTITUTION: Article II — Table of Contents; From Cornel University Law School, Legal information Institute)

 

Sifting through the legalese I am assuming that means the POTUS cannot be prosecuted for a crime but can be subject to a civil suit as long as it does not interfere with his Executive Branch duties. After his term of Office has expired then he may be subject to criminal proceedings. This is the unofficial reason President Gerald Ford gave President Richard Milhous Nixon a full pardon from any crimes committed while in Office. A sitting President that breaks the law can receive the equivalent of a political indictment called impeachment in the House of Representatives. The Senate acts as the equivalent of a political jury with the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court acting as Judge. A Senate conviction ONLY means a removal from Office. Then criminal proceedings can be executed judicially.

 

High Crimes and Misdemeanors

 

The U.S. Constitution provides impeachment as the method for removing the president, vice president, federal judges, and other federal officials from office. The impeachment process begins in the House of Representatives and follows these steps:

 

1.      The House Judiciary Committee holds hearings and, if necessary, prepares articles of impeachment. These are the charges against the official.

 

2.      If a majority of the committee votes to approve the articles, the whole House debates and votes on them.

 

3.      If a majority of the House votes to impeach the official on any article, then the official must then stand trial in the Senate.

 

4.      For the official to be removed from office, two-thirds of the Senate must vote to convict the official. Upon conviction, the official is automatically removed from office and, if the Senate so decides, may be forbidden from holding governmental office again.

 

 

The impeachment process is political in nature, not criminal. Congress has no power to impose criminal penalties on impeached officials. But criminal courts may try and punish officials if they have committed crimes.

 

The Constitution sets specific grounds for impeachment. They are “treason, bribery, and other high crimes and misdemeanors.” To be impeached and removed from office, the House and Senate must find that the official committed one of these acts.

 

The Constitution defines treason in Article 3, Section 3, Clause 1:

 

Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort. No Person shall be convicted of Treason unless on the Testimony of two Witnesses to the same overt Act, or on Confession in open Court.

 

The Constitution does not define bribery. It is a crime that has long existed in English and American common law. It takes place when a person gives an official money or gifts to influence the official’s behavior in office. For example, if defendant Smith pays federal Judge Jones $10,000 to find Smith not guilty, the crime of bribery has occurred.

 

 

What are “high crimes and misdemeanors”? On first hearing this phrase, many people probably think that it is just an 18th century way of saying “felonies and misdemeanors.” Felonies are major crimes and misdemeanors are lesser crimes. If this interpretation were correct, “high crimes and misdemeanors” would simply mean any crime. But this interpretation is mistaken.

 

The Origins of the Phrase

 

 

But the committee’s recommendation did not satisfy everyone. George Mason of Virginia proposed adding “maladministration.” He thought that treason and bribery did not cover all the harm that a president might do. He pointed to the English case of Warren Hastings, whose impeachment trial was then being heard in London. Hastings, the first Governor General of Bengal in India, was accused of corruption and treating the Indian people brutally.

 

Madison objected to “maladministration.” He thought this term was so vague that it would threaten the separation of powers. Congress could remove any president it disagreed with on grounds of “maladministration.” This would give Congress complete power over the executive.

 

Mason abandoned “maladministration” and proposed “high crimes and misdemeanors against the state.” The convention adopted Mason’s proposal, but dropped “against the state.” The final version, which appears in the Constitution, stated: “The president, vice-president, and all civil officers of the United States, shall be removed from office on impeachment for, and conviction of treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors.”

 

The convention adopted “high crimes and misdemeanors” with little discussion. Most of the framers knew the phrase well. Since 1386, the English parliament had used “high crimes and misdemeanors” as one of the grounds to impeach officials of the crown. Officials accused of “high crimes and misdemeanors” were accused of offenses as varied as misappropriating government funds, appointing unfit subordinates, not prosecuting cases, not spending money allocated by Parliament, promoting themselves ahead of more deserving candidates, threatening a grand jury, disobeying an order from Parliament, arresting a man to keep him from running for Parliament, losing a ship by neglecting to moor it, helping “suppress petitions to the King to call a Parliament,” granting warrants without cause, and bribery. …

 

After the Constitutional Convention, the Constitution had to be ratified by the states. Alexander Hamilton, James Madison, and John Jay wrote a series of essays, known as the Federalist Papers, urging support of the Constitution. In Federalist No. 65, Hamilton explained impeachment. He defined impeachable offenses as “those offences which proceed from the misconduct of public men, or in other words from the abuse or violation of some public trust. They are of a nature which may with peculiar propriety be denominated political, as they relate chiefly to injuries done immediately to the society itself.”

Finding a crime directly linked to a sitting POTUS is difficult for justice to be maintained. President Barack Hussein Obama has pushed the criminal envelope to the limits and appears near untouchable because of the blathering love of most of America’s media and the love of political power by the most Left Wing Democratic Party in American history. I am surprised the numerous “phony scandals” has not produced links to actual murder in the name of political power. Thank God so far, that extant of nefarious scandalous illegalities has not come up pertaining to President BHO.  

 

The CCC email I referenced at the beginning of these thoughts exposes the fact that the Islamic terrorists that attacked Libyan Embassy annex in Benghazi had acquired stolen “State Department-issued cell phones from our U.S. diplomatic facility”. The Islamic terrorists utilized these phones to coordinate their attack on the annex mission that resulted in the murders of Ambassador Chris Stevens, Sean Smith, Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty. The implication of the CCC email is that America’s Intelligence Community was listening to the Islamic attack coordination! This is another nail in the coffin of lies that exposes Obama and his Administration KNOWINGLY LYING to the American public just prior to the November 2012 election!

 

This is a ton of political evidence to bring Obama to an impeachment vote in the House of Representatives. BUT just like the Democrats in the Senate protected President Slick Willie Clinton from a Senate conviction, the same scenario would undoubtedly take place today in the Senate. EVEN if the GOP retakes the majority in the Senate there will be enough Democrats to ensure that a TWO-THIRDS majority would not be achieved to convict Obama and remove the most corrupt President from Office.

 

That leaves the only way for Obama to receive some justice for his criminal management of this Administration will be via the Civil Suit and/or criminal charges AFTER his term of Office ends in January 2017. AND there is a good chance Obama would escape that post-Presidential justice if a Democrat actually wins the 2016 election for President. Do you think someone like Hillary Clinton will allow civil or criminal discovery of Obama Administration law breaking to go on the public record? NO! A President Hillary would take a page out of the Republican playbook and give Obama a blanket full pardon preventing any kind of investigation from proceeding with the power of the independent Judicial Branch.

 

KNOWING these potential unjustified outcomes I say proceed with House impeachment proceedings at least after the 2014 election cycle to get something on the public record. Public revelations will make it more difficult for Hillary to become President and at the very least allow public opinion to force the Judicial Branch into action civilly or criminally.

New Benghazi Scandal Revelations

 

From: Office of CCC PAC

Sent: 6/14/2014 3:35 PM

 

Fox News has a stunning new report that shows that the Benghazi terrorists stole the State Department-issued cell phones from our U.S. diplomatic facility that they had attacked – and they used the phones to coordinate their attack with fellow terrorists.

But the most shocking aspect of the new report is that American intelligence agencies were listening in to the calls – and KNEW instantly that the attack on our compound in Benghazi was a terrorist attack.

 

US Spy Agencies Here Benghazi Plans - Obama Lied

 

These stunning new reports are further proof that the Obama administration lied to us about the Benghazi attacks, and then tried to cover up the fact that it was indeed a terrorist attack, and not a political rally in response to a YouTube video.

Please, do not let those four Americans who lost their lives on that fateful night of September 11, 2012 be forgotten, swept under the rug by Democrat politicians like Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama who don’t want the American people to know about the lies and cover ups surrounding that horrific terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya.

Please review our TV ad below demanding that Barack Obama be held accountable for the Benghazi cover up, and if you want us to keep the pressure on the Obama administration for this scandal, make a contribution to our TV ad campaign – HERE.

Ever since the Benghazi terrorist attack the Obama administration, with significant backing from the liberal media, have attempted to hide the truth about what happened.  To cover their failures in combating terrorism, they told lies saying it was not a preplanned terrorist attack, even when they knew that to be an absolute falsehood.

 

Susan Rice- Benghazi Not Preplanned Attack

 

Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and countless members of the Obama administration have lied, concealed and attempted to cover up not only the truth but their failures.  As has been his pattern of appeasement in the face of Islamic terrorism, Obama himself would not even call this an act of terrorism.

 

USA Today- BHO says Benghazi Not Terrorism

 

Obama’s Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, said it didn’t matter whether Benghazi was a terrorist attack or whether she and the Obama administration had lied about it.

 

Hillary- What Diff Does It Make

 

The Obama administration has dishonored those who lost their lives on that fateful night of September 11, 2012 and now they say it doesn’t matter because it happened “a long time ago.”

 

Jay Carney- Benghazi Happened Long ago

 

It’s time to hold the Obama administration accountable for their misdeeds.

 

We know the media will try to whitewash the seriousness of this issue.  We need to get the truth out as soon as possible, so please make a contribution to our TV ad campaign that holds Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton accountable – CONTRIBUTE HERE.

That Which Makes America Good is Dissipating


Lady Liberty Drowning in Decay

John R. Houk

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

 

Why?

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

  MLB:

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

NFL:

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

NBA:

 

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

Large Corporations Pressure Governor Brewer

 

JP Morgan Chase

 

Go Daddy Group

 

Apple Computers

 

PetSmart

 

American Airlines

 

Southwest Airlines

 

Delta Airlines

 

Intel Corp

 

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

 

Republicans in Name Only (RINO) and Establishment Republicans:

 

o   Senator Jeff Flake (R-AZ)

 

o   Senator John McCain (R-AZ)

 

o   Mitt Romney (R- President Nominee 2012)

 

o   Steve Schmidt, former John McCain Senior Campaign Advisor

 

o   Matthew Dowd, Former George W Bush Campaign Strategist

 

o   Mike Murphy, GOP Political Consultant

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

The Power of Homosexual Activism

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

 

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

 

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

 

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

Shocking Government Assault on Religious Liberties


Christian Religious Liberty Under Assault

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

 

That nation is in the United States of America.

 

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

 

YES!

 

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

Criminalizing Christianity

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

 

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

Seriously, just lighten up…

 

By Dr. Gary L. Cass

September 5, 2013

DefendChristians.org

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

 

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

 

 

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

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

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

 

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

 

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

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

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

By SVETA APODACA

The DOMA Project

 

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

 

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

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

 

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

 

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

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

Validate Homosexuality – Look for the Plains of Sodom


Escape---Sodom-and-Gomorrah---Joachim-Patinir

Yesterday I posted an exposé from a pro-Catholic and traditional morality Vlog site called ChurchMilitantTV about a closet homosexual lobby within the Vatican itself. Homosexuality spoken about was actually a problem that has plagued the Catholic Church for some time. That moral plague is predator Priests enticing and/or forcing minor boys to have sex with them. The crime of pedophilia is an act that most Americans find disgustingly abhorrent that a man would defile a male child in such a cruel fashion. In Christianity the Clergy of Catholics, Protestants and Eastern Orthodox Churches are supposed to be a paradigm of morality as established by the Holy Scriptures.

 

Indeed Christian-hating Leftists and homosexual activists have gone to great lengths to exploit this small lobby contagion of homosexuals within the Catholic Church as hypocrites. These Christian-haters use Pedophile Priests as a good reason to nullify the morality of Christianity to be replaced by Moral Relativity.

 

Leftists and homosexual activists of course are quite selective in heaping Christian-hating epithets at the Roman Catholic Church. These same Christian-haters will turn around and heap praise on Protestant Denominations that have invalidated Biblical Morality to grasp at Moral Relativity. I found a Wikipedia table diagram of Churches that are accepting of homosexuality in four categories: membership, Ordination, blessing same-sex unions and marrying same-sex couples. I am uncertain on how up to date the diagram is. Below is a list of mainline Protestant Denominations from that list that are accepting of homosexuality regardless of the Word of God condemning the vulgar lifestyle:

 

Christian Church-Disciples of Christ:

 

1)    Membership  

 

Reformed Church in America

 

1)    Membership

 

Episcopal Church

 

1)    Membership

 

2)   Ordination

 

Evangelical Lutheran Church of America-ELCA

 

1)    Membership

 

2)   Ordination

 

Presbyterian Church USA

 

1)    Membership

 

2)   Ordination

 

Religious Society of Friends-Quakers  

 

1)    Membership

 

United Church of Christ-UCC

 

1)    Membership

 

2)   Ordination

 

3)   Same-Sex Unions

 

The United Methodist Church (UMC) was not on that Wikipedia table diagram; however the UMC is amenable to homosexual membership while condemning the homosexual lifestyle. Also the UMC will probably formerly accept ordination and same-sex marriage because both aspects exist even though UMC rules says no to both.

 

If I missed any Denominations that have tossed out the Bible when it comes to homosexuality I am confident someone will point it out to me.

 

The Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) recently drove America further into Moral Relativity and away from Biblical Morality by destroying the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) that mandated that marriage is a union between a man and a woman. Then SCOTUS overturned the will of California State voters by essentially affirming a District Court ruling in California that Proposition 8 – which like DOMA declared marriage a union between a man and a woman – was unconstitutional. SCOTUS said the legal team defending Proposition 8 had no standing in Court because it was a private organization doing the California State government’s job. Of course old Governor Moonbeam and the State legislation are dominated by Christian-Morality-Hating Democrats; thus the State government refused to defend the will of the California State voters.

 

I am rehashing the SCOTUS anti-Christian activism in the last near hundred years over the Original Intent of the Constitution because now further moral degradation will be in America’s future. The pedophilia in the Roman Catholic Church could become legalized as the next step in Moral Relativity. If America becomes propagandized into totally accepting the moral depravity of homosexuality, Man/Boy sexual relations will not be far behind in the legal acceptance in the rule of law.

 

After Moral Relativism mandates Man/Boy NAMBLA style acceptance of sexual relationships then it will be illegal in the USA for the majority Roman Catholic hierarchy to discipline pederast Priests that will claim those boys voluntarily engaged in sex with adult Priests. Incidents described in this article will longer be scandalous.

 

Italian investigators have opened an inquiry into claims by a convicted paedophile priest that an underage prostitution ring has been operating inside the Holy Roman Church with clergymen hiring rentboys for sex inside churches.

 

Don Patrizio Poggi, 46, told Italian authorities that a former Carabinieri pimped boys for nine clergymen.

 

Poggi, who served a five-year sentence for abusing teenage boys while he was a parish priest at the San Filippo Neri church in Rome, said he made the allegations to “protect the Holy Church and the Christian community.”

 

The boys were chosen because they were starving and desperate, he claimed, according to Il Messaggero newspaper.

 

The former policeman used to recruit the boys, mostly eastern European immigrants, outside a gay bar named Twink near Rome’s Termini train station. He reportedly sat in his Fiat Panda – marked “Emergency Blood” to avoid parking fines – to make his selection.

 

He was helped in the recruitment process by a friend who ran a modelling agency. He lured underage boys into prostitution through “false work offers for modelling and acting roles”, Poggi said.

 

The agent also looked for rentboys at gay discos, saunas and gyms across Rome. An accountant was also said to be involved.

 

The boys were paid 150-500 (£130-£425) to perform sex acts in church premises across the capital.

 

Poggi also accused the former Carabinieri of selling consecrated hosts for satanic rites.

 

Poggi reportedly presented documentary and photographic evidence to police in the company of two senior Vatican clergymen who vouched for his credibility.

 

Poggi identified the nine clergymen, including two senior church officials and a religion lecturer. Three people have been placed under formal investigation.

 

The allegations were rejected by the Vatican. Cardinal Agostino Vallini, head of the Catholic Vicariate of Rome, said the priest made false claims out of a desire for vengeance and personal resentment.

 

The Vatican refused to reinstate Poggi after he served his term.

 

“The cardinal expresses his full confidence in the magistracy and declares himself full convinced that this slander will be demolished, demonstrating Poggi’s claims to be untrue,” Vallini said.

And check this out from Leftist website Right Wing Watch. The irony is the post is meant as an indictment against Conservatives and Biblical Morality yet the article is informative of the path SCOTUS is taking Christianity in America.

 

Gary Bauer is joining other anti-gay activists in warning that they should prepare to face jail time as a result of gay rights victories at the Supreme Court. In the Washington Times today, Bauer claims that people who oppose same-sex marriage will “find themselves in court” and religious people may soon be “fined or jailed” because of their views.

 

The ultimate goal of homosexual-rights activists is not to legalize same-sex marriage. Rather, it is to silence those who disagree with them and, if necessary, to throw them in jail. In a world in which the biblical viewpoint of marriage is demonized, it does not take a constitutional scholar to predict that soon those who hold that view will find themselves in court.

How did we get to the point where homosexual-rights activists would be clamoring to redefine society’s oldest and most reliable institution and people of faith would be worried about being fined or jailed for teaching their faith?

A lot had to happen, and it’s not all the left’s fault. It took the breakdown of traditional marriage. It took churches deciding that they could accommodate the homosexual culture or ignore it altogether. It took businesses placing their bottom lines ahead of morality. It took politicians who assured voters on the campaign trail that they would protect marriage and then did nothing to keep their promises once they arrived in Washington.

As a society, we have lost the understanding of what marriage is and what the consequences will be if we redefine it. Nobody has the right to redefine marriage. Doing so ignores research that makes clear that children do best when raised by a mother and a father. Nobody has the right to force children to grow up without the unique contributions that a mother and a father provide.

 

Not to be outdone, Joseph Farah of WorldNetDaily claims the Supreme Court may take away Christians’ right to vote:

 

Now where do we go from here?

What’s next?

It’s obvious, isn’t it?

The Supreme Court virtually declared an open season on those with whom the 5-4 majority disagree.

We are no longer relevant. What we think no longer counts. We are, after all, bigots who only want to demean homosexuals.

So when does the persecution begin?

When are we stripped of our citizen status, the right to vote, the right to bear arms and other constitutionally guaranteed liberties? Isn’t that next?

If not, why not?

It was just 10 years ago to the day of this decision that the Supreme Court issued another sweeping ruling in the Lawrence v. Texas case. It struck down anti-sodomy laws in that state and, effectively, across the country.

Justice Antonin Scalia wrote in his dissent in that case that the ruling would inevitably lead to same-sex marriage and polygamy. The cultural establishment scoffed at that opinion. It mocked Scalia. Why?

Because only 10 years ago, the notion of same-sex marriage was practically unheard of. It was a laughable proposition.

That’s how quickly the 6,000-year-old institution of marriage was officially and arbitrarily redefined with the imprimatur of five high priests and priestesses wearing black robes.

Will it take another 10 years for the retribution against marriage defenders to begin? I doubt it. My guess is the plans are already being drafted.

As for me and my house, however, we will continue to serve the Lord – the author of marriage and everything else. (Bauer: Anti-Gay Activists May Be Thrown in Jail Following DOMA; Posted by Brian Tashman; Right Wing Watch; 6/27/2013 12:30 pm)

 

Be sure to thank SCOTUS, Leftists and Homosexual Activists when Christianity becomes illegal or speaking Biblical Truths places a Christian in jail and American society devolves into a land like the Biblical Sodom and Gomorrah.
