House Passes Equality Act, Provides Civil Rights Protections To Gay And Transgender People


Reported by HENRY RODGERS, SENIOR CONGRESSIONAL CORRESPONDENT | February 25, 2021

The House of Representatives passed the Equality Act on Thursday afternoon, which will impact abortion, marriage, family, gender, sports and more. In a 224-206 vote, the House passed the Equality Act. H.R. 5 would amend the 1964 Civil Rights Act in order to prevent “discrimination on the basis of sex, gender identity and sexual orientation.” Three Republicans voted with Democrats in favor of the Equality Act.

The act would mandate that individuals cannot be denied access to the locker room of their choice.

“An individual shall not be denied access to a shared facility, including a restroom, a locker room and a dressing room, that is in accordance with the individual’s gender identity,” according to the bill’s text.

Democrats tried to pass the Equality Act in 2019, but it was killed by a Republican-controlled Senate.

THESE THREE REPUBLICANS VOTED IN FAVOR OF THE EQUALITY ACT: 

  • Pennsylvania Rep. Fitzpatrick
  • New York Rep. Katko
  • New York Rep. Reed
The legislation will now head to the Senate, where it would need 60 votes to avoid a filibuster. President Joe Biden promised to pass the Equality Act during his first 100 days of office in October 2020 when he was still the Democratic nominee.

Biden also said he would make sure LGBTQ equality is a focus of United States diplomacy before he was elected.

Chick-fil-A Will Stop Donating to Salvation Army, Christian Athletes Following LGBT Pressure

Chick-fil-A will reportedly stop donating money to charities including the Salvation Army and Fellowship of Christian Athletes following pressure from LGBT groups.

The company announced Monday that it is refocusing its charitable foundation to a smaller number of charities, focusing exclusively on education, homelessness, and hunger.

“Our goal is to donate to the most effective organizations in the areas of education, homelessness and hunger. No organization will be excluded from future consideration – faith based or non-faith based,” Tim Tassopoulos, president and COO of Chick-fil-A, said in a statement.

Chick-fil-A’s tax records shows that it gave to several Christian schools and charitable groups in 2018. None of those groups appears in a list of Chick-fil-A’s 2019 charitable giving that the company made available for preview.

Tassopoulos told the news site Bisnews on Monday that Chick-fil-A wants to be “clear about who we are” as it enters new markets.

“There’s no question we know that, as we go into new markets, we need to be clear about who we are,” he told the site. “There are lots of articles and newscasts about Chick-fil-A, and we thought we needed to be clear about our message.”

As a result, the company will no longer give money to organizations including the Salvation Army, the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, and the Paul Anderson Youth Home.

Those charities have caused LGBT activists to target Chick-fil-A due to those organizations’ stances on homosexuality.

In 2018, Chick-fil-A gave $115,000 to the Salvation Army for the Angel Tree program, which provided gifts for 11,000 children during the holiday season. The fast-food chain also gave $1.65 million to the Fellowship of Christian Athletes to provide underserved youth with week-long summer sports camps at historically black colleges and universities (HCBU).

In August, progressive Silicon Valley giant followed Chick-fil-A’s lead, giving $1.5 million to the Salvation Army to fight homelessness.

Chick-fil-A has faced mounting criticism from LGBT groups as it seeks to expand its corporate footprint. The Atlanta-based company recently announced the closure of its first restaurant in Great Britain just a week after it opened due to protests from LGBT activists. Airports in Buffalo, New York, and San Antonio, Texas, have banned Chick-fil-A restaurants in the face of similar pressure.

California To Ban the Sale of Bibles?


Reported By Benjamin Arie | April 19, 2018 at 4:53pm

URL of the original posting site: https://www.westernjournal.com/ct/california-to-ban-sale-of-bibles/

When you think about the censorship and outright banning of books and opinions, do you imagine the United States of America? Or, more likely, does that kind of suppression strike you more as the tactics of communists or fascists that America has frequently fought against?

If liberal lawmakers in California get their way, that west coast state may be one step closer to being unrecognizable as part of the United States. A bill currently pending in the legislature would essentially ban the sale of books that include traditional Christian views on marriage and sexuality.

Shockingly, the proposed law could even be construed to make it illegal to sell Bibles, since they include verses that the far left finds unacceptable.

Assembly Bill 2943 would make it an ‘unlawful business practice’ to engage in ‘a transaction intended to result or that results in the sale or lease of goods or services to any consumer’ that advertise, offer to engage in, or do engage in ‘sexual orientation change efforts with an individual,’” explained National Review.

That’s a lot of legalese to digest, so let’s break it down. What the bill basically says is that anything that can be seen as trying to impact a person’s sexual orientation would be illegal to sell or offer. This would almost certainly include traditional Christian counseling services and books.

“The bill then defines ‘sexual orientation change efforts’ as ‘any practices that seek to change an individual’s sexual orientation. This includes efforts to change behaviors or gender expressions, or to eliminate or reduce sexual or romantic attractions or feelings toward individuals of the same sex,” continued National Review (emphasis added).

“Efforts to change behaviors” is where the real problem is. After all, almost all counseling and even common psychiatric care are intended to “change behaviors” in various ways.

If you think about it, that’s the entire reason people seek help in the first place: They want to stop drinking or becoming angry or, yes, having troubling thoughts about their sexuality.

It’s also worth pointing out that the bill as written would apply to people who are trying to change their own behavior. This would mean that if a person was struggling with same-sex behavior or sexual identity and they themselves wanted to change, it would be illegal for them to buy any book meant to help them with this. The problem here isn’t limited to Christian books. Bizarrely, the bill appears to put almost any counseling or psychiatric service in the cross-hairs.

For example, let’s say a man has the paraphilia of crossdressing or transvestism. For whatever reason, the person has become addicted to wearing women’s clothes and has found that showing up to work in high heels and a dress has a negative impact on his life. Setting aside any personal judgment about this lifestyle choice (how liberal of us), suppose he voluntarily seeks counseling to get a handle on this problem. Maybe he just wants to stop being addicted to cross-dressing in public. 

It’s his own choice. Yet counselors or books intended to help him would be illegal because they’re “efforts to change behaviors or gender expressions,” in the words of the proposed law.

You might consider that example silly, but this concern is rather serious: If passed, it could only be a matter of time before the law’s extremely vague wording is used against traditional Christian teachings in the Bible.

Take Romans 1:26-27, for instance. This verse calls out homosexuality as “shameful” and encourages Christians to not act in this way.

Then there are 1 Peter 1:15-17, Romans 6:1, and Ephesians 4:22-24, all of which direct followers of Christianity to abstain from homosexuality even if they have those desires.

Let’s be extremely clear: The point of this article is not to lecture about gay lifestyles. There are an increasing number of gay conservatives who have reached their own conclusions about their beliefs, and many are on the front lines of the culture war.

You don’t even have to particularly agree with the Bible verses mentioned here to see the problem. Efforts like the proposed bill represent dangerous slippery slopes that would use the legislature to attack traditional beliefs, and even mainstream views that happen to be at odds with the far-left agenda. If nothing else, it’s an affront to the free exchange of ideas — yes, even ones that someone might dislike — and a censorship of speech.

“No one doubts that (Christianity’s) teachings on sexual morality are increasingly unpopular,” summarized National Review. “But they remain constitutionally protected, and no state legislature should be permitted to ban a ‘good’ (such as a book) or a ‘service’ (like counseling) that makes these arguments and provides them to willing, consenting consumers.”

It’s amazing that the same liberals who bemoan “government in the bedroom” eagerly jump at the chance to give the same government control over sexual and moral topics the moment it helps their cause.

Even non-Christians and political moderates need to fight against the new wave of suppression before a 21st-century iron curtain appears. Free speech is everyone’s fight.

You Won’t Believe Why This Conservative University Professor Was Suspended INDEFINITELY


waving flagBy Philip Hodges April 1, 2016

John McAdams – a conservative university professor in Wisconsin – has been suspended indefinitely for criticizing a fellow professor for not allowing debate about same-sex marriage in her classroom. McAdams may return to Marquette University as professor in January of 2017, only if he admits that he was “guilty.”

It all started at the Milwaukee, Wisconsin Catholic university in 2014 when a student recorded his encounter with his philosophy professor Cheryl Abbate regarding the issue of same-sex marriage. Abbate had told her class that the issue of “gay rights” was not up for debate, that “everybody agrees on this, and there is no need to discuss it.”

After class, the student discussed the issue with Abbate, but the professor eventually suggested to the student that he drop the course, adding that “some opinions are not appropriate, such as racist opinions, sexist opinions…You don’t have a right in this class to make homophobic comments.” She stated, “In this class, homophobic comments, racist comments, will not be tolerated.”Militent Radical liberalism socialism

The conservative university professor John McAdams wrote a post on his blog Marquette Warrior in 2014 exposing the student-professor encounter and criticizing Abbate for her intolerance. He concluded, “Like the rest of academia, Marquette is less and less a real university. And when gay marriage cannot be discussed, certainly not a Catholic university.”

When university administrators found out about McAdams’s critical blog post, it was recommended that he be fired. But their policy required that he given due process and a hearing before a committee. Breitbart reported:

It was announced this week that a “diverse” faculty committee recommended to the university president that McAdams be suspended without pay from April 1 through the fall of 2016 and that he lose his job unless he admits “guilt” and apologized “within the next two weeks.” Specifically, the demand is “Your acknowledgement that your November 9, 2014, blog post was reckless and incompatible with the mission and values of Marquette University and you express deep regret for the harm suffered by our former graduate student and instructor, Ms. Abbate.”Big Gay Hate Machine

The conservative university professor said their demands are similar to the “Inquisition, in which victims who ‘confessed’ they had been consorting with Satan and spreading heresy would be spared execution.”Picture1

Obama spent $700 million promoting homosexual tolerance abroad


waving flagBy Ed Straker December 21, 2015

President Obama has spent at least $700 million promoting homosexual tolerance in Africa.  Unfortunately, the initiative seems to have backfired:

Since 2012, the American government has put more than $700 million into supporting gay rights groups and causes globally. More than half of that money has focused on sub-Saharan Africa — just one indication of this continent’s importance to the new policy. 

The U.S. support is making matters worse,” said Mike, 24, a university student studying biology in Minna, a town in central Nigeria who asked that his full name not be used for his safety. “There’s more resistance now. It’s triggered people’s defense mechanism.”

America’s money and public diplomacy have opened conversations and opportunities in societies where the subject was taboo just a few years ago. But they have also made gay men and lesbians more visible — and more vulnerable to harassment and violence, people on both sides of the gay rights issue contend. The American campaign has stirred misgivings among many African activists, who say they must rely on the West’s support despite often disagreeing with its strategies.

In Nigeria, Africa’s most populous nation, the final passage of the 2014 law against homosexuality which makes same-sex relationships punishable by 14 years in prison and makes it a crime to organize or participate in any type of gay meeting — is widely regarded by both supporters and opponents of gay rights as a reaction to American pressure on Nigeria and other African nations to embrace gay rights.

Shortly after Nigeria’s law went into effect, Animashaun Azeez, 24, a university student here, arranged to meet somebody he had chatted with on Manjama, a social network for gay people. The person showed up, along with three plainclothes officers. 

Questions for discussion:

1) We have an enormous national debt of nearly 19 billion dollars, such that it seems excessive to spend 700 million dollars on this subject.  With such tremendous debt, do you think we can really justify spending more than 300 or 400 million dollars to promote gay sex in other countries?

2) Do you think this program was flawed to begin with, because there were no metrics taken – e.g., comparing the number of gay sex acts before and after the program began to measure its success?

3) Do you think there should be a greater focus on gay sex in Islamic countries?

4) Do you think funds should also be spent to encourage transgenderism, to encourage Pakistani men who feel transgendered to go into women’s bathrooms, and to encourage cross-dressing members of the Taliban to shower with the ladies as disguised men do here in America?

Christian outfitter ordered to undergo ‘diversity training’ for refusal to print ‘Gay Pride’ t-shirts (Video)

A Lexington, KY, human rights commission ordered the employees of a local apparel company, Hands On Originals Christian Outfitters, to handsonoriginals logoundergo “diversity training” after they refused to print t-shirts celebrating a “gay Pride” festival.

According to the Lexington Herald-Leader:

Hands On Originals discriminated against the Gay and Lesbian Services Organization of Lexington when it refused to print the group’s Lexington Pride Festival T-shirts in 2012, according to a hearing officer in the case.

Greg Munson issued his decision Monday. The Lexington-Fayette Urban County Human Rights Commission released it Tuesday morning.

“The evidence of record shows that the respondent discriminated against GLSO [Gay and Lesbian Services Organization of Lexington] because of its members’ actual or imputed sexual orientation by refusing to print and sell to them the official shirts for the 2012 Lexington Pride Festival.”

The Real Gay MafiaHands On Originals argued that their objection wasn’t rooted in the sexual orientation of the customers, and even gave the group the name of another local vendor who would complete the order at the same price Hands On Originals would have charged. The Herald-Leader reported:

Hands On Originals contended that it declined the T-shirt order because it is a Christian company and disagreed with the message of the shirt. The shirt was a stylized numeral 5 on the front. On the back was “Lexington Pride Festival” and a list of sponsors of the gay pride event.

The Alliance Defending Freedom, an Arizona group defending Hands On Originals, released a statement announcing its disappointment with the ruling, which it said would also require printers to do business with controversial groups such as the Westboro Baptist Church, which is known for its extreme ideologies, especially against gay people.

“No one should be forced by the government — or by another citizen — to endorse or promote ideas with which they disagree,” said ADF Senior Legal Counsel Jim Campbell, who argued before the hearing examiner on behalf of Hands On Originals.

“Blaine (Adamson, of Hands On Originals) declined the request to print the shirts not because of any characteristic of the people who asked for them, but because of the message that the shirts would communicate.”why

Local attorney Bryan Beauman, who served as co-counsel on behalf of Hands On Originals agreed, and suggested an example where the tables may be turned.

“No one wants to live in that kind of America — a place where people who identify as homosexual are forced to promote the Westboro Baptists and where printers with sincere religious convictions are forced to promote the message of the GLSO,” he said in a statement. “In America, we don’t force people to express messages that are contrary to their convictions.”The Persecution has Begun

As for myself, I keep wondering what would behoove a gay and lesbian pride organization to place an order with a company called “Hands On Originals Christian Outfitters” if not to initiate a lawsuit.cause of death

The United States of America Needs a Revival of Conservatism


Without True Conservatism, The Obama’s Of The World Will Prevail

Recently, Republican Party Chairman, Reince Priebus, announced plans to spend $10 million dollars reaching out to minority groups in a bid to attract a different group of American voters. The Republicans also plan to begin to embrace immigration reform and to soften the party’s stance on gay-marriage. A recent study commissioned by Republicans concluded that the party’s electoral success hinged on becoming more “inclusive and welcoming” of “non-traditional voters.” In other words, the Republicans are caving, and moderate and liberal influences are about to take over what is left of the opposition party, and conservatism is about to be bloodied.

Apparently, the Republican Party no longer wishes to pretend to represent “old white male” conservative voters. The people that work hard, pay their taxes, and raise their families to love God, respect morality and observe the law. Somehow, Republicans have come to view winning as more important than fighting the good fight. Somehow, Republicans have come to believe that Log Cabin Republicans and children of illegal aliens will provide for the Republican Party of tomorrow and I resent their foolishness. It will only cause the future defeat of their party and the further destruction of America.

Soon to be invited to the Republican ranks, the minority homosexual community or the “Log Cabin Republicans,” was a group founded in 1977 to defeat California legislation (see Briggs Initiative) banning homosexuals from teaching in public schools. Since its birth as a homosexual advocacy group, the Log Cabin Republicans (LCR) has only endorsed one Republican candidate for President, John McCain. All prior Republican Presidential candidates failed to secure this groups support because all Republican candidates subscribed to the traditional definition of marriage and paid little attention to the false cause of gay rights.

Many wrong thinking Republicans believe this group shares a conservative ideology. Aside from what some consider a fiscally conservative, small government, low taxes, free markets, strong defense slant, nothing could be further from the truth. Log Cabin Republicans support liberal causes including “Corporate Diversity”; ”Family Fairness”; and “Is Sexual Orientation a Choice?” It is also worth noting that LCR was instrumental in defeating “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” (see Log Cabin Republicans v. United States) and refused to participate in the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC). I wonder why.

I lost my faith in any established political party a long time ago. They are all, owned by “big money” influences of one philosophy or another. The Republican and Democrat Party have both done their fair share of damage to the U.S. Constitution and fiscal strength of our nation. Now it appears both parties wish to destroy what is remaining of traditional American values by setting up the old “big tent.”

I have some news for Republicans. I only vote for conservatives. Your national party has not been worth a damn since Reagan left office. You are losing the political fight because few of you possess the courage to tell the truth and stand for traditional American values. You may move to the center to accommodate your newfound homosexual constituency and the entitlement cultured Hispanics like your competition President Obama, but in the end, you will lose the core of your party, conservatives.

Without tradition, there is nothing conservative. The basis for Conservatism is tradition. Voting Republican does not make anyone a conservative any more than owning a gun makes one a constitutionalist. If conservatism fails to win the culture war reshaping our government and political parties, we will all become a nation of indentured servants and slaves to the coming tidal wave of immoral tolerance washing over our Republic.

Rarely do Americans consider the long-term costs of “feel good” ideas like tolerance and social justice. Instead of acknowledging their failures and working to correct the damage they have caused the Republican Party is about to undertake a “rebranding” by unfolding its “Big Tent” strategy again. A vision that includes gay marriage, dual citizens, and the entitlement addicted. Big money influences have laid down the law and Republican lackeys are bowing to their demands.

Political favors will not solve America problems. Respect for honored traditions by honorable men and women will. If the Republican Party turns its backs on conservatism, they might as well hand the government over to the Democrats. Based upon the last 13 years there does not seem to be much of a difference, just one failure after another.

Damn these Cowards!

Another Result of a Lightless, Unsalty, Lukewarm Church in America


Obama Seeking to Criminalize Biblical Concept of Marriage

In 1996, the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) was overwhelming passed by both the US House and Senate.  President Bill Clinton signed the bill into law and the biblical definition of marriage being between one man and one woman was protected by federal law.

In 2011, President Barack Obama violated his oath of office and the US Constitution by instructing US Attorney General Eric Holder to stop enforcing the Defense of Marriage Act.  Holder, Obama’s little puppet who is supposed to be the top cop of the country, was more than happy to carry out his handler’s instructions.

Since that time, Obama has worked long and hard at trying to destroy the biblical concept of marriage as being a holy union between one man and one woman.  He has opened the military to gays and lesbians, he has order military chaplains to perform same-sex marriage and union ceremonies and he has pushed for benefits to be given to the unmarried same-sex partners of gay military personnel even though they aren’t married.  The same benefits are to be denied to the unmarried partners of heterosexual military personnel.

Now, the Obama administration has filed a brief with the United States Supreme Court, asking them to strike down Section 3 of DOMA.  The White House claims the section is unconstitutional because it denies the federal government from recognizing same-sex marriages which prevents them from extending benefits to those same-sex partners.  The benefits include health, Social Security survivors’ benefits and income taxes.

The brief filed by the Obama administration reads in part:

“Gay and lesbian people are a minority group with limited political power. Although some of the harshest and most overt forms of discrimination against gay and lesbian people have receded, that progress has hardly been uniform (either temporarily or geographically), and has in significant respects been the result of judicial enforcement of the Constitution, not political action.”

This demonstrates just how far the administration has gone to redefine the Constitution along with the Christian values our nation was founded upon.  Matt Barber, Vice President of Liberty Counsel Action says that the brief is wrong on two counts:

“Not only did the president abdicate his duty to defend a law that was passed with overwhelming bipartisan support, this president has taken it a step further and he is now engaging in radical homosexual activism.”

“If people are given special, suspect minority status based on aberrant sexual feelings and behaviors, then the Christian view that says homosexual behavior is both self-destructive and immoral … essentially becomes criminalized.”

Barber also says that once Obama was re-elected, that the real man emerged from behind his political mask.  If Obama succeeds in overturning DOMA, he believes that will open the doors to mass attacks on Christianity and Christian values.  Before long, living the Christian faith will be a crime.  It has happened in Canada and the UK where people have been charged with crimes, especially hate crimes for preaching what the Bible says about homosexuality.

The wolf has emerged from the sheep’s clothing and he is ready to devour Christians and Jews alike.  Before Obama’s second term expires, I would not be surprised to see Christians and Jews being arrested and jailed on a daily basis for anything they say or do that involves defending their religion.  We will end up like the Christians in China who ended up going underground and worshiping in secret.

But not me!  I refuse to denounce my Christian faith or my Christian values.  If I’m not willing to go to jail or even be tortured for Christ sake, then I am not worthy to be called a Christian and deserve the worst possible treatment there is.  We either die with Christ or we die separated from Christ.  I know which I choose.  Where will you stand?

Interview: Obama Had Marxist Vision For US At Occidental College


I have shared with you some research into words and phrases the Left throws out there hoping no one will look them up to understand the Marxist/Socialist foundational belief system. This is Part One of an article I believe everyone should read. It validates what I sent you about “Social Justice” and Collectivism”. It will take a while to read. Pleas do so with patience and understanding. What you do with it afterward is between you and your conscious.

Interview: Obama Had Marxist Vision For US At Occidental College

obama_youth_09_2Has anyone ever been interested in President Obama’s ideological past? What were Obama’s beliefs while he was at Occidental? Several interviews by Dr. John Drew during the 2008 campaign cycle gave some insight, but few were interested at that time in what Obama really believed when he attended Occidental College. (See “Meeting Young Obama” and “Even Republicans Rejected Info About Obama’s Past” at www.americanthinker.com/john_drew/). Dr. Drew wrote, “Meeting Obama”, about Obama and his ideology about taking the United States over and making it fail so the, “revolution” could in his article “Meeting Young Obama” on February 24, 2011. He clearly remembers what Obama stated, in his own words, “Like it was yesterday”. Obama espoused without hesitation, “There’s going to be a revolution,” saying, “we need to be organized and grow the movement.” This is disturbing due to the fact what our nation is going through right now drives it to the edge of failure; just what the young Obama stated he wanted to accomplish in 1980: the end of capitalism in the United States.

Obama has in the last three years been declaring, the people with money are the problem with the United States. This reflects back to his Marxist/Socialist training while he was at Occidental College. Obama discussed this ideology with young John Drew during a Christmas break when Drew visited his then girlfriend, Caroline Boss. It was during his visit that he met Obama face to Face. Dr. Drew stated the man Obama had shown up with was an individual by the name of; Mohammed Hasan Chandoo, a 21-year-old Pakistani student Obama hung around with along with Chandoo’s girl friend, Margot Mifflin. All of them were fervent with their ideas of Marxist and Socialist ideology. Dr. Drew gave context to his recollections with the observation he had also read other stories about how Obama had dreamed of working to bring the downfall of Capitalism. Today it looks like Obama is working very hard to obtain those 1980 dreams.

In the below interview, Dr. Drew will, of course, refer to Dr. John Drew and LP will refer to the author of this piece, Louis Puissegur.

Dr. Drew began; “I know Stanley Kurtz’s book, Radical in Chief , that Obama has ties with the Midwest Acadamy, kind of like the Socialist training ground for America. I think that most Americans don’t understand that Obama
has a longstanding tie to Marxism, that is even longer then his ties to Reverend Right.”

LP; “That’s right, he(Obama), didn’t go to Reverend Wright until after he was married.”

Dr. Drew; “Right, I mean, the way I look at it, Barack Obama was probably at least a Communist sympathizer when he came out of high school, he was definitely a Marxist revolutionary when I met him in 1980. It doesn’t look like he
changed a bit, he started hanging out with Bill Ayers.”

LP; “You saw him just before Obama went to Pakistan.”

Dr.Drew; “Exactly, the last time I saw Obama was June 1981, we had a graduation party for Occidental College. I guess he left from there and went on this tour in Indonesia, and somehow got into Pakistan, I guess you were not allowed to do that on a United States passport at that time.”

LP; “How long did you have an association with Obama?”

Dr. Drew; “It is kind of complex, the actual time I spent with Obama was sort of brief and limited, but he was part of my social sphere in the sense I knew his roommate at the time, Chandoo, and Obama was a member of the Democratic Socialist Alliance at Occidental and my girlfriend, Caroline Boss was the co-president of that organization.”

LP; “Democratic Socialist Alliance?”

Dr. Drew; “Yes, that was the Marxist student association on campus, Caroline hung up a huge banner of Karl Marx where the students met at the Occidental College Quad. She and I were pretty intense Marxists we had been involved in about a two-year relationship and she was the one who introduced me to Barack Obama, she knew him better then I did. I wouldn’t be saying he was a Marxist/Socialist revolutionary if it was just based with my face to face talk with him, my comments are based on knowing Chandoo, having known Caroline and the Marxist Professors and that whole culture.”

LP; “Another words, the people he was associated with were deep into the Marxist/Socialist ideology?”

Dr. Drew; “Oh yes, I had considered myself as the enemy of the American government at that time.”

LP: “At that particular time? And what made you change?”

Dr. Drew; “Well, the first thing that happened was kind of spiritual change, I just started having the religious experience, I realized that there was something out there which I now call a higher power. That was very inconsistent with Marxist ideology. Because Marxist taught that stuff like that was just the opium of the people, but to me it was very real, so very real. Then my Doctoral research ended up just confirming a lot of Marxist theory which comes to explain how welfare programs and how Capitalism deals with child labor and things like that. My research pulled me out of Marxism fundamentally but what started it was the spiritual change.”

LP; “How many actual face to face meetings did you have with Obama?”

Dr. Drew; “I never had face to face after Christmas and in Partolo Valley California which is near Stanford. I basically spent the day with him, Chandoo, and Caroline Boss, I was visiting Boss from Cornell where I was studying. I graduated ahead of them but I had come back for the trip to be with Caroline. We hung out with Obama and Chandoo for that day and went out to lunch then we ended up arguing pretty late in the evening about Marxist and politics. Whether or not there would be a revolution, a Communist style revolution in the United States. The key takeaway there is that I may have been one of the first people in the world to confront Barack Obama’s kind of silly belief, Marxist idea that there was going to be an inevitable Communist revolution coming to the United States. I feel in my heart that I had persuaded him that that wasn’t in the cards and it wasn’t going to happen and at the end of that time he believed me. I think a bunch of us, Marxist Communist style people were turned off by a Communist style revolution I think that Obama would have heard that from someone else eventually, but from his reaction, I think I was the first person that he could identify as an ally, and a friend and supporter who sincerely believes that there would never be a Communist style revolution. That debate I think helped Obama intellectually, but it helped seal the end of my romantic relationship with Marxist.”

LP; “Obama was a student there the whole time?”

Dr. Drew; “Yes he was a student at Occidental College and he was taking classes from Roger Boesche, who was a political theorist on campus. Roger was definitely a Socialist. Most of the students followed him as a Marxist revolutionary, but he was kind of precise with that and did not see himself as a Marxist. I would say that 100% of the students considered him to be a Marxist/Socialist.”

LP; “Obama had to have some sort of girlfriends, or was he kind of all alone.”

Dr. Drew; “I think this is very unusual but I can say that I saw Barack Obama about 3 or 4 other times on campus and off campus at parties. As God as my witness, I can say that I never saw Barack Obama with a young woman. I never saw any romantic connections with a young woman or even any socializing with a young woman that had a romantic nature.”

LP; “So he was pretty much by himself all the time?”

Dr. Drew; “I am just a small piece of the puzzle, but if I had ever seen him with a girl, I would be happy to say that, but I did not notice that. If anything I thought that the young Obama was kind of the feminine and he seemed to have a very strong emotional tie to Hasan Chandoo.”

LP; “Now did Chandoo have a girlfriend?”

Dr. Drew; “Yes, Chandoo did have a girlfriend, her name was Margot Mifflin. It was kind of interesting that Chandoo had a girlfriend, Margot Mifflin, who is still in the news today, she is a professor at I think NYU. Caroline Boss had a boyfriend, me, and I am in the news about Barack Obama, but there is not a single girl out there that says she was Obama’s girlfriend.”

LP; “I seem to recall an article you wrote about Obama riding in a big fancy car with Chandoo.”

Dr. Drew; “Yes, Chandoo was very wealthy and he drove a very expensive, very nice luxury car. It was ten times better then the normal Occidental student would drive. One of my theories is that Barack Obama had a good time at Occidental College because of the financial generosity of Chandoo. That was one of the places that Obama learned that rich people would give him money just because he was a nice handsome ideologically consistent person.”

LP: “Do you know or did any one say he had a Visa when he was going to Occidental?”

Dr. Drew; “That I don’t have any knowledge of I don’t I called him Barry, but I don’t remember if he was introduced as Barry Soetoro or Barry Obama. I just remember I called him Barry and I don’t know anything about his citizen
status.”

LP; “How long did he hang around with Chandoo?”

Dr. Drew; “Chandoo is a life long friend of Barack Obama. Chandoo attended Obama’s marriage to Michelle, I think that was 1992 or 1993 or something like that. Chandoo was at their marriage and he was also at a recent Ramadan Dinner at the White House. He is one of those $600,000 bundlers for Obama. Chandoo has been a part of Obama’s life at least since 1980.”

LP; “So Chandoo is a bundler for Obama too?”

Dr. Drew; “Yes, Chandoo would go out and raise contributions from people then put all those checks in a bundle, then deliver it over to the campaign headquarters.”

LP:” Is Chandoo a US Citizen or is he a Pakistani?”

Dr. Drew; “He is living in New York, in America.”

LP: “About how many hours had you spent with Obama?”

Dr. Drew; “I would say that altogether it was about 10 to 12 hours.”

LP; “During that time did Obama display the Marxist ideology?”

Dr. Drew; “We were confiding in each other the way people fight with each other people with major historical struggles in communicating, very down to earth, very honest. Like I said, I am ashamed of my Socialist/Marxist past, I have a conversion story which explains how I became a Christian, Constitutional Conservative. Barack Obama has no conversion story. There is a story about how he stopped being a Marxist, if anything his career, life shows an alarming consistency in his ideological extremism.”

LP; “Do you see the same Marxist ideology now with Barack Obama?”

Dr. Drew; “Yes, especially when he talks about the people holding on to their guns and religion because of economic stress. That is a Marxist idea. Everything he says about it being a good idea to spread the wealth around; that is Marxist/Socialist concepts. Some of the statements Obama makes about things inevitably get better, I think that is a Marxist ideological remnants.”

LP; “I noticed in one of your articles you said it would never happen but Obama said yes it will.”

Dr. Drew; “Yes, I remember that very clearly, even some 20 years later because he thought I was nuts. He thought that I was going against everything he had been taught at Occidental College. I persuaded him, I told Obama there has never been a revolution in Italy, France, Germany, why would you expect one here in America? I said revolutions only occur in backwards raring economies, like China, Vietnam or Russia, not in America.”

LP; “How did he accept your idea?”

Dr. Drew; “I think he believed that the economic stresses would pile up worse and worse and after the stresses built up they would just build up to a breaking point where a new group would take over the country. That would be a large group of workers, students, young people, those who were enlightened by Marxist/Socialist ideology would end up running things.”

LP: “Did Obama ever mention Cloward/Pivens?”

Dr. Drew; “No never did, but he might have bumped into her when he was at Columbia because she taught at Columbia. Part of my research disconcerns the Piven and Cloward teachings that welfare programs rise in reaction to violence and rioting from the lower class. I was able to show that that was not true in America. I perceive Obama as being an out and out liar; hiding his real views from the American people. I think those views are deeply objectionable to most people and I am shocked that more media attention hasn’t been focused on vetting Obama and getting down to brass tacks about how he really is.” (see additional information at end.(1))

LP: “Did Obama ever throw money around when he was with Chandoo?”

Dr. Drew; “He hung with Chandoo, but the impression I had with Obama was that they were both very wealthy. I thought that Barack Obama was a descendent from royalty from the way he carries himself. It did turn out that he did spend his summers on the grounds of the palace of the sultan of Jakarta in Indonesia. According to David Remnick,(“The Bridge, Alfred A. Knopf, 2010, page 104”), that is where Obama would spend his summers. So he actually did grow up on the grounds of an Indonesian Palace. Through his step-father, Lolo Soertoro, he actually had ties to the royal family.” (See addition below(2).)

Now with all this stated by Dr. Drew, one has to ask, has Barack Obama moved away from his Marxist, Radical, Socialist Ideology? Has Barack Obama, the man holding the highest office in the United States “hidden” his true agenda, the one he so proudly proclaimed while at Occidental College? One must now consider: just what are the President’s motives behind producing continued debt upon the United States? Is this meant to further what Dr. Drew so clearly remembers: End Capitalism?

These questions should have been asked in 2008. They must be answered in truth today as the American people continue daily to struggle with the Marxist/Socialist ideals foist upon them by Barack Hussein Obama dedicated to them, ideals which have yet to succeed in all of human history. Some pundits state this is a propaganda used historically by Marxist and Socialist regimes, using the single word “forward” as their base. Has Obama finally given America a true reflection of his days as a revolutionary radical Marxist/Socialist?

(1.) My take on Piven and Cloward is included in my published doctoral dissertation in this book, The American Welfare System: Origins, Structure, and Effects. I demonstrated that there was no relationship between street violence or riots and the later rise of the Progressive Era Mothers’ Pensions movement.”

(2.) Information about how Obama’s mother lived on the grounds of the palace of the Sultan of Yogakarta is available in David Remnick’s book, The Bridge, on pages 84-88.

Should Christians Support President Obama?


Dr. David Barton is more of a historian than a Biblical speaker, but very famous for his knowledge of historical facts as well as Biblical truths.

Dr. David Barton – on Obama. “Respect the Office? Yes. Respect the Man in the Office? No,  I am sorry to say.

I have noted that many elected officials, both Democrats and Republicans, called upon America to unite behind Obama. Well, I want to make it clear to all who will listen that I AM NOT uniting behind Obama! I will respect the Office which he holds, and I will acknowledge his abilities as an orator and wordsmith and pray for him, BUT that is it.

I have begun today to see what I can do to make sure that he is a one-term President!

Why am I doing this? It is because:

  • I do not share Obama’s vision or value system for America;
  • I do not share his Abortion beliefs;
  • I do not share his radical Marxist’s concept of re-distributing wealth;
  • I do not share his stated views on raising taxes on those who make$150,000+ (the ceiling has been changed three times since August);
  • I do not share his view that America is Arrogant;
  • I do not share his view that America is not a Christian Nation;
  • I do not share his view that the military should be reduced by 25%;
  • I do not share his view of amnesty and giving more to illegals than our American Citizens who need help;
  • I do not share his views on homosexuality and his definition of marriage;
  • I do not share his views that Radical Islam is our friend and Israel is our enemy who should give up any land;
  • I do not share his spiritual beliefs (at least the ones he has made public);
  • I do not share his beliefs on how to re-work the healthcare system in America;
  • I do not share his Strategic views of the Middle East; and
  • I certainly do not share his plan to sit down with terrorist regimes such as Iran.

Bottom line: my America is vastly different from Obama’s, and I have a higher obligation to my Country and my GOD to do what is Right!

For eight (8) years, the Liberals in our Society, led by numerous entertainers who would have no platform and no real credibility but for their celebrity status, have attacked President Bush, his family, and his spiritual beliefs!

  • They have not moved toward the center in their beliefs and their philosophies, and they never came together nor compromised their personal beliefs for the betterment of our Country!
  • They have portrayed my America as a land where everything is tolerated except being intolerant!
  • They have been a vocal and irreverent minority for years!
  • They have mocked and attacked the very core values so important to the founding and growth of our Country!
  • They have made every effort to remove the name of GOD or Jesus Christ from our Society!
  • They have challenged capital punishment, the right to bear firearms, and the most basic principles of our criminal code!
  • They have attacked one of the most fundamental of all Freedoms, the right of free speech!
  • Unite behind Obama? Never!

I am sure many of you who read this think that I am going overboard, but I refuse to retreat one more inch in favor of those whom I believe are the embodiment of Evil!

PRESIDENT BUSH made many mistakes during his Presidency, and I am not sure how history will judge him. However, I believe that he weighed his decisions in light of the long established Judeo-Christian principles of our Founding Fathers!!!

Majority rules in America, and I will honor the concept; however, I will fight with all of my power to be a voice in opposition to Obama and his “goals for America …” I am going to be a thorn in the side of those who, if left unchecked, will destroy our Country! Any more compromise is more defeat!

I pray that the results of this election will wake up many who have sat on the sidelines and allowed the Socialist-Marxist anti-GOD crowd to slowly change so much of what has been good in America!

GOD bless you and GOD bless our Country!”

 

Why liberals behave the way they do by Ann Coulter


By: Ann Coulter
8/15/2012 05:11 PM

My smash best seller “Demonic: How the Liberal Mob Is Endangering America” has just come out in paperback — and not a moment too soon! Democrats always become especially mob-like during presidential election campaigns.

The “root cause” of the Democrats’ wild allegations against Republicans, their fear of change, their slogans and insane metaphors, are all explained by mass psychology, diagnosed more than a century ago by the French psychologist Gustave Le Bon, on whose work much of my own book is based.

Le Bon’s 1896 book, “The Crowd: A Study of the Popular Mind,” was carefully read by Adolf Hitler and Benito Mussolini in order to learn how to incite mobs. Our liberals could have been Le Bon’s study subjects.

With the country drowning in debt and Medicare and Social Security on high-speed bullet trains to bankruptcy, the entire Democratic Party refuses to acknowledge mathematical facts. Instead, they incite the Democratic mob to hate Republicans by accusing them of wanting to kill old people.

According to a 2009 report — before Obama added another $5 trillion to the national debt — Obama’s own treasury secretary, Tim Geithner, stated that in less than 10 years, spending on major entitlement programs, plus interest payments on the national debt, would consume 92 cents of every dollar in federal revenue.

That means no money for an army, a navy, rockets, national parks, food inspectors, air traffic controllers, highways, and so on. Basically, the entire federal budget will be required just to pay for Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security — and the cost of borrowing money to pay for these programs.

When Social Security was enacted in 1935, the average lifespan was 61.7 years. Today, it’s almost 79 and rising. But liberals believe the age at which people can begin collecting Social Security must never, ever be changed, even to save Social Security itself.

Mobs, according to Le Bon, have a “fetish-like respect” for tradition, except moral traditions because crowds are too impulsive to be moral. That’s why liberals say our Constitution is a “living, breathing” document that sprouts rights to gay marriage and abortion, but the age at which Social Security and Medicare benefits kick in is written in stone.

Le Bon says that it is lucky “for the progress of civilization that the power of crowds only began to exist when the great discoveries of science and industry had already been effected.” If “democracies possessed the power they wield today at the time of the invention of mechanical looms or of the introduction of steam-power and of railways, the realization of these inventions would have been impossible.”

Liberals exhibit this exact groupthink fear of science not only toward light bulbs and nuclear power, but also toward medical inventions. Thus, when a majority of the country objected to Obamacare on the grounds that — among many other reasons — a government takeover of health care would destroy medical innovation, liberals stared in blank incomprehension.

They believe every drug, every diagnosis, every therapy, every cure that will ever be invented, has already been invented. Their job is to spread all the existing cures, while demonizing and stymieing pharmaceutical companies that make money by inventing new drugs.

Democrats haven’t the slightest concern about who will formulate new remedies because they are enraged at profit making and suspicious of scientific advancement.

Apart from cures that will never be invented, liberal elites will be mostly untouched by the rotten medical care to which they are consigning the rest of us. Note how Democrats’ friends, such as government unions, immediately received waivers from Obamacare. Rich or connected liberals, such as George Soros, Warren Buffett, Nancy Pelosi and Barack Obama, will always have access to the best doctors, just as Fidel Castro and Hugo Chavez do.

It is similar to the way that Democrats, who refuse to pass school choice, always seem to bypass the disastrous public schools for their own children, who end up at Sidwell Friends or St. Albans.

Democrats don’t worry about how bankrupting Social Security and destroying the job market hurts black people, bitter divorcees and young people, because they can always demagogue these one-party Democratic voters simply by repeating that Republicans are racist, hate women and aren’t cool like Obama.

The truth is irrelevant; only slogans and fear mongering delight mobs.

The rest of us are forced to live in a lawless universe of no new pharmaceuticals, foreign doctors, gay marriage, girl soldiers, a health care system run by the post office, and bankrupt Social Security and Medicare systems, because liberals can’t enjoy their wealth unless other people are living in squalor.

The country will have the economy of Uganda, but Democrats will be in total control.

I Told You So


This morning a homosexual activist walked into a Christian Lobbyist office and began shooting. If not for the security man, the gunman would have killed or injured untold others. As it is, only the security man gave his life to save the others by was shot in the arm and then disarmed the gunman. The gunman is quoted as asking the security man not to kill him because the reason for his being there and shooting up the place was not “about you. It’s about what these people stand for.”

I told you that the Professional Pot Stirrers were keeping the pot of hate so stirred that this kind of thing would happen. It is only the beginning. It will happen much more as the hateful rhetoric of the Political Left gets more shrill, more hateful, more distorted and more demonized. They want this kind of violence so they can blame it on the Right, especially those that disagree with their stands. The Political Party that proclaims it is the “Tolerant Party”, practices INTOLERANCE with anyone that does not share their point of view. Chick-fil-A anyone?

How sad that we have allowed our Society to fall so far that we have these circumstances. Express your God endowed, Constitutional Right, opinion in a public setting and you are labeled a HATER or some other label the Left has determined fits anyone expressing differing convictions. Hate breeds hate. Add to that dynamic the Professional Pot Stirrers efforts at bring the pot to boiling over, and riots and violence is the result.

Let us work harder that ever in history to get the truth out there and get every America Loving Patriot the get off their apathy and vote to rid ourselves of these Collectivist, Socialist, Extreme Left Wing cancers.

Christians, Silence is Not an Option

By / 12 August 2012 / 35 Comments

by Matt Barber

With the exception of one column previously penned, I pray this becomes my most widely read to date.

The secular left has mastered use of the Internet to further its extremist goals. In fact, President Obama’s web-based “Organizing for America” propaganda machine may have given him the 2008 election.

Let’s beat them at their own game.

To that end, I have a strange request. I’m asking each God-fearing, freedom-loving American who reads this column to forward it, post it, tweet it, print it out and give it to every pastor, priest or cleric you know. If you don’t know any, give it to someone who does.

Why? I agree with Barack Obama that November 2012 represents the most important election of our lifetimes – perhaps our history. Of course, that’s where my agreement with Mr. Obama both begins and abruptly ends.

Here’s the operable question: Do we want America “fundamentally transformed” to mirror the secular-socialist ideals of the radical leftist currently “occupying” the White House?

In Barack Obama’s America, individual freedom is trampled beneath jackboots as a matter of course. It’s already happening at an unprecedented rate.

One need only look to the HHS mandate forcing Christian groups – both Catholic and Protestant – to violate, under penalty of law, biblical prohibitions against abortion homicide.

Or consider recent attempts by multiple elected officials, all Democrats, to shutdown Chick-fil-A – a private, Christian-owned business – simply because its leadership holds the biblical view of marriage.

Is this George Washington’s America, or Joseph Stalin’s Russia?

It’s definitely not your father’s USA.

Instead, wouldn’t we prefer the America envisioned by our Founding Fathers? A constitutional republic wherein individual liberty – whether economic, First Amendment or Second Amendment-related – is sacrosanct and off limits?

Pastors, you’re it. You’re our front line of defense. It’s up to you to rally the troops. Now begins the second American Revolution and, as with the first, it’s on you – men of the cloth – to take the lead.

That is, if you hope to remain free to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Speaking of chicken: In recent years there’s been an epidemic of cultural inaction exhibited by far too many ministers of the gospel. It’s fear-based. “Oh, I don’t talk about political issues,” they say. “You know, ‘separation of Church and State’ and all that.”

Baloney.

If this is you – and only you and our Lord know for sure – you’ve been deceived by the enemies of God. You’ve chosen the easy way out – the path of least resistance. This is something Christ, whom all Christians are called to emulate, never did – not once.

So, respectfully, man-up, Padre! Be the “salt and light of the world,” as Christ so admonished.

But you don’t have to go it alone. There are detailed, easily digestible tools available. Civil-rights firm Liberty Counsel, for instance, is distributing more than 100,000 copies of “Silence is Not an Option,” a concise, though comprehensive, DVD and printed material collection informing pastors and churches about what is permissible regarding political activity (Please, get it for your church at LC.org or by calling 1-800-671-1776).

“The church must be empowered to confront the assaults on our culture, our faith, and our freedom,” said Mat Staver, founder and chairman of Liberty Counsel. ”I don’t want any pastor, church leader or lay person to say, ‘What more could I have done to protect life and liberty?’”

“Silencing people of faith in the public square has always been the goal of those who realize the influence that pastors, churches and people of faith have on elections. I want pastors to remove the muzzle and replace it with a megaphone,” he said. “Pastors and churches have a lot of freedom to address biblical and moral issues, to educate people about the candidates, and to encourage people to vote. Not one church has ever lost its tax-exemption for endorsing or opposing candidates or for supporting or opposing local, state or federal laws.”

Did you get that? Despite hundreds of thousands of threatening letters sent by hard-left groups like the ACLU and Barry Lynn’s Americans United, not a single church has lost tax-exemption for socio-political activity – zip, zero, nada. Not even for endorsing candidates from the pulpit.

Indeed, if these anti-Christian bullies had been around two-and-a-half centuries ago, and our forefathers had paid them any mind, we may never have had the first American Revolution.

Don’t let them halt the second.

We’re on the precipice of the abyss, and, pastors, I think you know it. But know this too: There’s a whole lot relating to both culture and politics you can both say and do, and very little – if anything – you can’t.

Churches can educate about political, moral and biblical issues. These kinds of issues – whether abortion, marriage, feeding the poor or any community issue – are never off limits from the pastor’s pulpit, even if politicians are also talking about them. “Silence is Not an Option” systematically addresses the misrepresentations used to muzzle America’s pastors and Christian leaders.

Leading up to Ronald Reagan’s landslide presidential victory in 1980, Rev. Jerry Falwell captured the crux of the church’s apathy problem: “What is wrong in America today?” he asked. “We preachers – and there are 340,000 of us who pastor churches – we hold the nation in our hand. And I say this to every preacher: We are going to stand accountable before God if we do not stand up and be counted.”

Dr. Falwell’s words ring no less true today.

Imagine the benefit to our culture if thousands of churches across America registered millions of Christians to vote. How about pledge-drives wherein pastors ask tens-of-millions of Christians to simply commit to voting biblical values?
The possibilities are limitless.

Proverbs 4:18 reminds us: “The path of the righteous is like the morning sun, shining ever brighter till the full light of day.”

Shine bright, salt and light. Don’t be choked into dark silence.

Because silence is not an option.

It can’t be.

Are You on The New America’s Hate List? (You probably are-Check and see)


 Written on Tuesday, August 7, 2012 by

You are on the current Hate List if you are:

White Male

Prolife

Heterosexual

Christian

Chick-fil-A customer (New on the list)

Patriot

Conservative

Tea Party Member (God forbid!)

Republican

Love the founding fathers

Believe in free enterprise

Believe in guns

Believe in freedom of speech (non liberal, of course)

(If you said yes to any of the above, you are in danger of being singled out as an enemy of modern American society. You are at risk. If you checked two or more update your passport. If you checked three or more you don’t want to know)

This is a new America. It is not the country I was born in. It is not the country it was four years ago. Almost none of the currently accepted principles of life, mores, or ethics, are the ones that built the country. This is tragic.

 This once great nation that had its roots firmly embedded in a biblical worldview is now rejecting the same at all levels. In order to enjoy the full benefits and respect of being an American, people must now, not tolerate, but embrace evil. They must openly accept homosexuality, abortion, pornography, and blasphemy. It’s “un-American” to do otherwise. You will suffer in some form if you don’t raise your PC quotient. From God’s point of view to succumb to this cultural pressure is sin[i].

Not only does our society think we should embrace the bad (pronounced “evil”) things, we must also not verbalize support for anything traditional. This includes marriage between a man and a woman, heterosexual lifestyle, not killing our babies, and holding off on sex until married (Now that’s a prehistoric idea).

It’s pretty scary to think that Dan Cathy, COO of Chick-fil-A fell under vicious attack simply because he believes the Bible and God’s definition of marriage. He basically stated that he feared for America, that we deserved God’s judgment, and that he supported traditional marriage.

This apparently is a crime against humanity according to many. Mr. Cathy’s sentiments were enough to start a war of the words and the worldviews. We are still engaged over the furor that these remarks brought out from the far left. It also launched an overwhelming response from the right, especially Christians.

The Chick-fil-a battle may turn out to be one of those “shots heard around the world.” It is already leading to other battle lines being drawn and the intensification of the rhetoric. It is unbelievable that mayors of some major cities, like San Francisco, would condemn a private company because its COO holds traditional beliefs.

Wednesday, August 1st was Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day. Governor Mike Huckabee had proposed a special day to support Chick-fil-A and it quickly mushroomed into a national effort. Over 200,000 had signed the pledge on Facebook to participate on the 1st. The number of people who signed on was quite large in spite of the fact that the signup page mysteriously disappeared for twelve hours. Then, suddenly, “Poof” it reappeared.

When August 1st arrived the nation wide support of Chick-fil-A was no less than incredible. Preliminary reports are that the company broke all sales records that day. Here in Ellijay, Georgia, where I live, the cars were lined up around the block and you could barely get in the door. This continued all day. It is noteworthy that some other fast food franchises, such as some of the individually owned Wendy’s, joined in support of Chick-fil-A at least until corporate told them to stop.

Dan Cathy has stirred the pot even though I don’t think that was on his mind at all when he made his comments. People on all sides of the issues are now heavily engaged in this war of the worldviews and this is a good thing. At least people are getting involved, but it can explode into violence or chaos. This would not be good for anyone.

We, I truly believe, are in danger of God’s judgment. Why shouldn’t He judge us? As a culture can we really claim that we are good?  Do we honor Him or His Word? No.

I agree with Dan Cathy when he said, “…that we are a prideful and arrogant nation for having the audacity to think we can redefine marriage from something other than that between a man and a woman, and may God have mercy on us all.

[i] Sin, n. Webster’s 1828 Dictionary. 1. The voluntary departure of a moral agent from a known rule of rectitude or duty, prescribed by God; any voluntary transgression of the divine law, or violation of a divine command; a wicked act; iniquity. Sin is either a positive act in which a known divine law is violated, or it is the voluntary neglect to obey a positive divine command, or a rule of duty clearly implied in such command. Sin comprehends not action only, but neglect of known duty, all evil thoughts purposes, words and desires, whatever is contrary to God’s commands or law. 1 John 3. Matt. 15. James 4. Sinner neither enjoy the pleasures of nor the peace of piety. Among divines, sin is original or actual. Actual sin, above defined, is the act of a moral agent in violating a known rule of duty. Original sin, as generally understood, is native depravity of heart to the divine will, that corruption of nature of deterioration of the moral character of man, which is supposed to be the effect of Adam’s apostasy; and which manifests itself in moral agents by positive act of disobedience to the divine will, or by the voluntary neglect to comply with the express commands of God, which require that we should love God with all the heart and soul and strength and mind, and our neighbor as ourselves. This native depravity or alienation of affections from God and his law, is supposed to be what the apostle calls the carnal mind or mindedness, which is enmity against God, and is therefore denominated sin or sinfulness. Unpardonable sin, or blasphemy against the Holy Spirit, is supposed to be a malicious and obstinate rejection of Christ and the gospel plan of salvation, or a contemptuous resistance made to the influences and convictions of the Holy Spirit. Matt.12.

CAN WE HAVE AN HONEST DISCUSSION WITHOUT POLITICAL CORRECTNESS?


I graduated high school in 1965. I was in the Marine Corps Oct 1, 1966. Viet Nam March of ’67 to April ’68. I missed much of the demonstrations going on as we were being shot at. Yet I still heard much of the rhetoric of the time and one phrase stands out from all the rest, “I’m tired of Christians shoving their religion down my throat”. Sometimes they would use the word “morals”. Have you ever heard anyone use a phrase like that?

Apparently those times have been lost on a certain group of people. Over the years they have grown bolder and bolder with their demonstrations, political activism and parades. They are a people who chose and lifestyle that all cultures have rejected as unwholesome and wrong. Some cultures have gone so far as to execute anyone who chooses this lifestyle and practices the same. As a result they have used every platform imaginable to “shove” their message, and lifestyle down all our throats, and shamed governments into giving them special rights, even those that will label this writing as “hate speech.” According to them, anything you say against them is “hate speech.”

In more recent years this group of people (about 1% of the population) have cried, screamed and hollered to force everyone else to accept their relationships as the same as one man and one woman marriage. Now the political Left is using this as another divisive weapon to further set citizens against each other. They are promoting discord, not peace.

Lets strip away the façade and have an honest discussion. First of all the chosen lifestyle is homosexual not “gay”. It is still a term in dictionaries, encyclopedias and medical books. It is unacceptable to allow any group of people to hijack acceptable English words and transforming them into a definition of their own just because they hate the word that describes them. “Gay” means happy; light-hearted. That describes most people I know. Non of the have chosen the homosexual lifestyle. Misusing the English language is one of the reasons our nations literacy is declining in record forces. If you have to change the English language in order to get others to accept you, then you have a serious problem with that chosen lifestyle. There are too many groups of people who have worked so hard at rewriting our language in an attempt to make people accept them, or to create their own version of the English language (i.e., “Street Language”).

Second, forcing their chosen lifestyle down the throats of the rest of the people is the exact act they have always complained about. Someone will label this article as hate speech, only because I have used the word homosexual. This word is in every dictionary, encyclopedias and medical books. This small group of people has used multiple forces to eradicate this word from society. As a result, other groups have started using this same “playbook” to get their group of people the same acceptance. Have you ever heard of Muslims and their Sharia Law?

I am one citizen who is tired and being forced to be tolerant. Throughout my business experience, as well as many other venues of my life, I worked with many people who I knew to be homosexual. I fact, one of those people was one of my best friends. He never made it an issue, and neither did I. When he was very sick and dying, he asked me to pray for him and I was honored to oblige. To this day I miss him.

I don’t hate people. I learned a long time ago to separate people from what they do. I can love any person while hating what they do. Anyone can change what they do without changing who they are. I learned this primarily through God’s Word, the Bible and my relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ. I have many times loved addicts of all description, while hating their addictions. People are to be loved and respected. Just because I hate their life choices does not mean I hate them.

If you’re honest enough, you will agree that you practice the same conduct. Your children can do things you do not like, or might even hate, but you still love them. Love doesn’t change (or shouldn’t), conduct can, and does. This myopic view of judging people by their conduct is not of God, but has its roots in cultural origins. It has to be taught, because no one is born with such attitudes.

Stop forcing me to accept something I know to be wrong. You chose a lifestyle, and then you have chosen the results of that lifestyle. I agree that any form of prejudice is wrong. So, stop your prejudice toward me because I do not choose to accept your choices. Stop labeling me with your pseudo political correctness. Stop making me accept your relationships as equal to what I know to be God’s perfect will for marriage. One man, one woman.
