Pardon me, but where are the irresponsible “parents” in this picture? Where is their responsibility in dealing with the resulting baby, which the creation of the consequence of their momentary pleasure? Unfortunately the “parents” are the product of our secular humanistic and hedonistic schools and Planned Promiscuity (so-called Parenthood) philosophy.
Let’s end abortion. Anyone creating a child will be held accountable for the baby’s care through age 18-21 . . . Garnishment of wages, castration, sterilization, and/or imprisonment should be the possible penalties. Actually, while in prison the “parent” or “parents” would be made to work 6 days a week in productive work to pay for the care and education of the child.
That is where accountability must begin – assigning and expecting personal responsibility from every perpetrating “parent”. This might deter some of the free, uncommitted sex taking place so rampantly today. Put the onus were it belongs. I will do my part in support homes for unwed mothers, etc. But really, let’s get to the root of the problem why don’t we!
All life is precious. Scores of men and women have risen above their circumstances and grabbed a hold of the American Dream. I still believe in the American Dream and in the America in which Dreams can happen. INSTANT GRATIFICATION: the pro-death crowd is the one who seems to be living for the momentary pleasure sex brings and for the “convenience” and “freedom” from responsibility that abortion supposedly affords.
The pro-death crowd also vehemently claims that it is the woman’s body, the choice to abort or not to abort is not mine, but the woman’s sole right. This premise is outrageous. What about the baby rights? What about his or her well being or mere being, even? The baby is a unique human being with unique DNA they are not an appendage of the woman. This is where the pro-death crowd along with their willing accomplices in the main stream media and Hollywood has deceived the public. The pro-abortion mantra that the baby is not a baby is believed by many.
The pro-death crowd often asks about why pro-lifers are often in favor of the death penalty for criminals. It seems to be hypocritical. Carrying out justice by gassing or injecting a GUILTY death row inmate, who has had an opportunity to live in society, who has chosen to commit an egregious crime, whose crime has been investigated, and who subsequently has been sentenced to death, is not, let me repeat IS NOT equivalent to killing an INNOCENT baby. The baby never has had a chance, like the convicted criminal has had with their endless appeals, which are probably also paid for by the taxpayer . . . The comparison is ludicrous and insulting.
Once abortion becomes illegal once again, we can continue to create a culture of life and morality. We can start with the educational system. Let’s kick the secular humanist and hedonistic priests and priestesses out of the schools this time instead of God. Let’s also get rid of their religion that for the past 100 years has been brainwashing our children and our society with moral relativism, with situation ethics, with fuzzy math, with acceptance of “diversity” which really should be called “perverse” alternative life styles. We must work toward an environment where freedom means personal responsibility and accountability and we must reform the justice system and the courts.

When is Life a Life? Embryos are real life. Human life begins when the sperm unites with or fertilizes the egg. That is basic science, Biology 101 stuff. Each of us started our lives at that point. I just do not see what is so difficult or complex about this simple fact.Some people demand proof, but isn’t it obvious? If we were to rewind our life, we would follow ourselves to the point that our father’s sperm united with our mother’s egg. That was the point we came into being. If we look at our life as a continuum from this moment in time, back until that moment of our conception, where else would you have become the unique you?
A QUESTION FOR ANY REJECTOR OF LIFE
If your life did not begin at the moment of conception when did you become you? Was it:
• When you reached the age of reason or accountability, say at age 7 or 8?
• When you spoke your first words? When you took your first step?
• At the point you took your first breath? Or was it when the doctor slapped your behind at birth?
• At the point you first felt pain in your mother’s womb?
• @ 30 weeks
• @ 24 weeks?
• @ 12 weeks?
• @ 6 weeks?
• @ conception?
• Before the beginning of time when God planned for you being in this world –He had you in mind - He designed you and fearfully and wonderfully made you?
Please tell me Mr. or Ms. Atheist or Pro-Death Proponent, when did your life began along this continuum, if not at the point of conception. It is very logical and scientific and rational, in my mind at least, to say that all life begins at conception, or even earlier!
WHY STOP ALL ABORTION NOW?
That is why it is so insidious, so cruel and ruthless to kill a new human life at any point and with any means or method via “Plan B” [“emergency” contraception, or maybe contra-conception!], RU 486 [the “wonderful” abortion in a pill] or other chemical aborticide or through some hideous unusually cruel surgical slice ‘em or dice ‘em or even holocaust reminiscing suctioning-the babies –brains-out-of-its-skull partial birth abortion. An we worry and fret that some felon murderer “suffered” a few extra minutes because the lethal injection did not work immediately. INSANITY I say, just INSANITY. That is where we have come as a society. Fretting over Charles Manson, Willie the Whale and Flipper the Dolphin and carrying nothing about HUMAN baby X. Sad. It is inhumanity to man. Worthy of condemnation! We treat animals better than we do our babies.
LIFE AT CONCEPTION ACT
We must pass the Life at Conception “Right to Life” Act in the U.S. Congress this year and stop this madness now! 34 years is 34 years too long! Contact your Representative and ask him or her to co-sponsor Duncan Hunter's (R-CA) Life at Conception Act.

Last night I saw the movie “We are Marshall”. I wanted to see the movie because I remember when the airplane crashed killing that college’s football team, coaches and others associated with the team. Also, when I was a freshman at Heidelberg College in Tiffin, Ohio in the fall of 1962 there was a young assistant football coach by the name of Jack Lengyel. See his bio for more information.
The same Jack Lengyel was destined to be named the head coach at Marshall following the tragic plane crash in the fall of 1970. His task would be to keep the football program going and start the rebuilding process. I don't know if most people can imagine how devastating that plane crash was to Marshall and the whole community. They lost the whole football team except for a handful of players that were injured and one player that overslept and missed the plane. They also lost the whole coaching staff except for one assistant coach who drove up to Virginia after the game on a recruiting trip. They most likely lost all the managers and trainers and maybe even a team doctor. There were also boosters and other important people from the community that lost their lives in the crash.
I happened to be one of the football managers and I remember the good times we managers and trainers had playing touch football with the coaches after the football team’s practices. That is how the coaches and staff unwound and tried to stay physically fit and healthy ourselves. I remember Jack as being easy going and laid back. But there was something about him that seemed to inspire those around him to do their best in whatever situation they were in.
I thought that the movie brought that out very well. He was only at Heidelberg that one year and we only won 2 games that season so maybe the Lord was preparing Jack for what he would face one day in the future at Marshall. The next time I had heard about Jack was when he became the head coach at Marshall. Several years after that, I saw him after the football game when Marshall played Toledo at the Rockets stadium in Toledo. It was good to see him again and to wish him well.
I thought the movie was well worth seeing and I would recommend it to everyone. It is rated PG and tells a true story. There was no foul language in the movie. This movie illustrates the value of a sport like football can have in shaping a young man’s life. It was the best movie I’ve seen in quite while due to its content. The movie will hold your attention all the way through and after you’ve seen it you won’t feel like you wasted your time.

Ever since man’s disobedience to God in the Garden of Eden, man has been working to outdo himself in being as offensive as he could to His Creator. What is the greatest sin? Is it abortion? Is it homosexual behavior? Is it murder? Is it rape? Is it child molestation? Is it lying? Is it theft? No, it is none of these!
Hardcore Muslims believe that theft warrants the amputation of a hand. Hardcore Muslims believe that conversion to Christianity warrants a beheading as well as being a Christian or Jew.
Hindus teach that killing a cow is the ultimate sin. After all isn’t the cow sacred, she could be your long dead cousin, Veronica.
What is the greatest sin? Let’s look at a few other questions first.
ARE ALL PEOPLE SINNERS?
Yes, every person who ever lived, who is living now are or who will live in the future will be sinners. There is one exception.
IS IT POSSIBLE TO LIVE A SINLESS LIFE?
No, it is not possible for any human, neither “holy” man, pauper or CEO to live a sinless life. Anyone who says that they have no sin is self-deceived, delusional.
There is one exception to this general rule, however. Only one person claims to have never sinned and that is Jesus Christ, the Son of God. Although Jesus was tempted in all points as we are, yet He did not sin.
WHAT THEN IS THE GREATEST SIN?
The Judeo Christian Bible in both the Old Testament and the New Testament identifies the greatest sin as pride. Satan was proud by reason of his beauty and splendor and thus he corrupted his wisdom, thinking he could replace God with himself. It seems there are a lot of people who think that way about themselves today.

On Being Declared Null & Void
Where have all the babies gone?
Aborted 50 million or more of them
Abortifaciented another 200 mill
Where are the doctors?
Where are the scientists?
Where are the teachers?
Where are the bridge builders?
Where are the caregivers?
Where are the missionaries?
Seven black robed hoods
Seven Kowardly Klansmen of the Kourt
January Twenty Two, Nineteen Hundred Seventy Three.
“Choice” is a blight, a scar, a blur
No chance to shine or star or cure
Free will does not mean to freedom to kill
That can’t be God’s will
When, oh when, will we get our fill?
Right to die or Right to live
If you decide to have a kid
You will be glad you did.
Right to die or Right to Live
If you decide to terminate
You will hide and ruminate.

I read an encouraging and excellent article by OneNewsNow.com entitled, “Perspectives: California Congressman picks up pro-life mantle”, which was written by Joe Murray. Duncan Hunter, who is a potential Presidential candidate, reintroduced the “Right to Life Act”, which Murray says, “would establish an unborn child is a person at the moment of conception. Along with many other pro-life advocates, Hunter apparently sees the act as a constitutional way to overturn Roe without having to involve the Supreme Court, the president, or even the states.” This is the heart of the debate. The pro-death proponents insist that the baby is anything but . . . there is no denying the truth. A baby is still a baby, no matter how you might want to slice and dice him or her.
To me abortion is one of the two biggest blights on America today. Abortion stops beating human hearts and must end ASAP. 45-53+ million babies have been aborted since 1993 that is more than the population of the entire country of Canada! Untold millions more (200 million maybe) have been chemically aborted. 25% of all black babies are being exterminated by Planned Parenthood and other similar insidious organizations across America, while much of America waits for the Super Bowl, for the next Brad Pitt movie, for the next version of Nintendo or for Madonna’s next CD. Shame on US!
Another quote from Murray’s article, “In a statement made on the floor of the House, Duncan explained "one of most fascinating ... shows on television today, 'In the Womb' on the National Geographic Channel, provides viewers with amazingly-detailed footage of unborn children growing and interacting in utero." Such footage depicts the unborn child sucking a thumb, smiling, crying and responding to certain movements made by the mother. Under the constitutional framework established by Roe, this same child can be terminated with the legal blessing of the highest court in the nation.” Shame on US!
Furthermore, Murray goes on in his article, “"In 1973, the United States Supreme Court ... refused to determine when life begins and therefore found nothing to indicate that the unborn are persons protected by the 14th Amendment," stated Hunter. Hunter points out that "in the decision ... the Court did concede that, 'if the suggestion of personhood is established, the appellants' case, of course, collapses, for the fetus' right to life would be guaranteed specifically by the [14th] Amendment.'" It is here that Hunter sees the way out of Roe." The past 30 years with ultrasound equipment, with advances in treating and caring for prematurely born babies it is obvious that we are talking about a baby and not a fetus when we see the pictures inside the mother's womb. To deny life exists before birth is foolish. It is unscientific.
Murray’s concludes his article stating that to Hunter “the (Right to Life) Act is not about choice, but putting “our unborn children on the same legal standing as all other persons.” America, is that too much to ask? We give even the worst of society’s criminals’ rights to appeal after appeal, we assign them defenders at taxpayers’ expense, we provide medical care, food and shelter for those who have murdered, tortured, raped and killed women and children. We throw fits, protest and agonize at the cruelty to research animals and the treatment and slaughter of chickens and cows for food. Yet we continue to DENY the basic right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness AND we permit the slaughter INNOCENT baby after baby at the ungodly rate of 4,000 babies EVERY day! This must stop.
Follow this bill, as I will through the House and Senate and on through to President Bush’s for his signature before he leaves office. What a legacy that would be!
Make A Good Choice and contact your congressman or congresswoman to request them to co-sponsor and work hard at passing this preeminently important bill. We must re-establish our moral footing and this would be a good first step.

A real Christian cannot believe in a “God-free zone” such as the public schools are today. God commands that his commandments be bound on our hands and our foreheads (Deuteronomy 6:8, 11:18). These commandments are to “love the LORD with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength” (Deuteronomy 6:5) and to not worship idols (which includes a warning that God’s anger will burn against those who commit idolatry in Deuteronomy 11:16-17). Proverbs 3:5, 6 says, “Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.” Isaiah 62:6 says, “I have set watchmen upon thy walls, O Jerusalem, which shall never hold their peace day nor night: ye that make mention of the LORD, keep not silence,”
Mark 16:15 says, “Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.” No exception is given for public schools or where prohibited by law. Not only should Christians politically oppose the “God-free zoning” (case) law, but they should defy it as Peter (Acts 4:18-21, 5:28-32) and Paul (Acts 23:29) did. If salt loses it saltiness, it is good for nothing but to be thrown out into the street and be trampled by men. Real Christians would never force other Christians to put their lamps under a bowl (Matthew 5:15). Ephesians 4:27 says, “Neither give place to the devil.” “The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of men who suppress the truth by their wickedness.” (Romans 1:18) Christians who believe in these “God-free zones” have a form of godliness, but say no to the power of God.
Some people look at various tragedies and ask, how could God allow this? Where was He when this happened? In the case of school shootings, He was not there because He was not allowed to be by our own (case) law. Isaiah 65:5 says, “A people that provoketh me to anger continually to my face…Which say, Stand by thyself, come not near to me; for I am holier than thou.”
I will continue this series, Lord willing, next Thursday.

1. One thing we can do is ask our state and federal representatives to stop all government funding and grants to Planned Parenthood.
2. We can also elect Pro-Life, Anti-Abortion state and federal representatives.
3. We can personally support alternative to the abortion-providers of death and disinformation. True Crisis Pregnancy Centers (pro-life organizations) see CareNet's website for a crisis pregnancy center near you.
4. Boycott those businesses and organizations that support Planned Parenthood through corporate or organizational contributions.
OneNewNow reports today, “Businesses organizations in the broadcasting, food service, clothing, and hospitality industries are included in the latest version of Life Decision International (LDI) "The Boycott List," which identifies corporations that support Planned Parenthood and, in doing so, become potential boycott targets.
“… LDI president Douglas Scott, Jr., says The Boycott List has been around for 15 years, as part of the Corporate Funding Project, which provides a list of corporate financial contributors to the abortion advocacy group for the general public's knowledge and voluntary boycotting.
“According to the LDI spokesman, the list has been effective at getting corporations to reconsider their financial participation with Planned Parenthood.
"As a direct result of the commitment, action, and prayer of pro-life people, there are now 137 corporations that have stopped funding Planned Parenthood," says Scott. "And it is estimated that it has cost Planned Parenthood over $35 million since the boycott started 15 years ago."
“Scott explains that when the project began, much of corporate America thought it would be a short-lived publicity stunt. He now believes that some of those corporate officials are surprised when they continue to hear from LDI.
“"We've had companies that were on the list for a decade who finally decided [that] enough is enough [and they were] going to stop giving to Planned Parenthood," he says. "So it's a matter of commitment -- and as soon as they realize that we are committed to this for the long term, they finally will decide to change their policies."
Some of the organizations and companies on LDI's Boycott List include the following:
· Circuit City
· Bank of America
· JPMorgan Chase (including Chase Bank & Bank One)
· Johnson & Johnson
· Time Warner (HBO, Cinemax, AOL, etc.)
See the LDI website where you can purchase a complete Boycott List by clicking on Order Materials. The Boycott List includes the name, address, phone number, website address, products, subsidiaries, services, and chief executive officer for every boycott targets.

WHAT UN-JUSTICES WE HAVE
The seven unjust 1973 United States Supreme Court “Justices”, which I henceforth label, the Kowardly Kourt Klansmen cloaked in black robes, made a grave mistake, actually they made 50 million plus grave mistakes! The supremacist elite play god doing the bidding of the liberal leftist socialist humanist agenda, which the majority of so-called "justices" bought lock, stock and over-the-barrel.
WE ARE ALL TO BLAME
America is guilty. The blood of babies is on our hands. Let us put all of our energy into stopping this most inhumane holocaust once and for all. The horror of the Khmer Rouge ethnic cleansing, the genocide in Sudan and the combined reign of terror of Moa, Hitler and Stalin’s in slaying millions is comparable to what Planned Parenthood and its employees are doing in their abortion chambers on a daily basis.
The liberal left sugarcoats and excuses the killings in the name of a made up “woman’s right to choose (to kill)”. We have been duped, deceived and anesthetized by the culpable NOW feminism and their many comrades especially the biased main stream media’s incessant lying propaganda. We have become apathetic and complacent, satisfied with our Budweiser’s, pretzels, DVDs, sports addictions demonstrating a severe lack of morality and principles that our Founding Fathers would be shocked and ashamed in beholding.
America, wake up and strengthen the things that remain before it is too late. Elect pro-life congressional representatives and a pro-life President and insist that only judges who will interpret the law and the constitution not make up new laws and new rights that fit some narrow un-American socialist agenda. Vote your conscience. Vote your values.
The following are two websites that may help you to appreciate the magnitude and depth of the horror that continues to take place "legally" but very immorally and unethically in our beloved land of liberty (except for the pre-born).
We must all work toward electing representatives and a President who will work vigorously for a Life Begins at Conception Amendment to the United States Constitution.

There are all kinds of rights being claimed and bantered about these days by various groups and every Tom, Dick and Hillary, such as:
· Minority Rights
· Women’s Rights
· Immigrant Rights
· Prisoner’s Conjugal Rights
· Property Rights
· Muslim Religious Rights
· Civil Rights
· Miranda Rights for pre-criminals perpetrations
· Voter Rights
· Homosexual, Lesbian, & “Transgender” Rights
· Even Death Row Murderers have endless Appeal rights
· Even the ludicrous Animal “Rights”
Can you imagine the many misguided people who have dedicated their lives and resources to saving dolphins and whales? Then there are extremist environmentalists conducting endless protests to save some “rare” snail, or tree huggers putting their own lives on the line to save a tree.
OUR CORRUPT AND INCORRIGIBLE SUPREME COURT
Today marks is a day of infamy worse than even Pearl Harbor, it is the 34th anniversary of the Supreme Court’s tragic decision to legalize abortion-on-demand. What a horrific injustice wrought by seven Kowardly Kourt Klansmen dressed in black robes, the United States Supreme Court.
WHAT ABOUT THE BABY?
The baby is a unique and separate INDIVIDUAL unique and different from the mother. Killing that baby and thereby denying his or her right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness is wrong and is a PUBLIC matter not a private one. It is unethical it is unconstitutional. How easy it is to deny life to the defenseless. This is the epitome of bully-hood. Shame on America for 'TOLERATING' such evil for soon long!!!
BABIES DIE WHILE LIBERALS LIE
As the liberal left “celebrate” the anniversary of this most evil USSC decision ever, let’s put life and death in prospective shall we? While giving little regard for the innocent pre-born the liberal left defies Pres. Bush’s war on terror in Iraq at every turn and incessantly “defends” the most vicious, vile and undeserving of protection in society – those tried, convicted and sentenced death row inmates *** . . . . Look at these numbers:
Abortion - Millions of murders every year since 1973 infamous USSC decision. Planned Parenthood is practicing eugenics and genocide on the black population. 25% of the black babies are being summarily killed by the exterminators, right under the watchful eye of the liberal overseers “advocates” and “protectors” Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, Hillary Clinton and Ted Kennedy. Yeah, they really CARE about the blacks of the America. Year, right.
Iraq - Thousands of deaths since '03
Death Penalty - Hundreds of deaths. if that. over the last ten years
Morality and ethics tell me that one aborted baby's life is more deserving of a chance to be born than the convicted guilty death row inmates. The Death Row Inmates at least had a chance at life, whereas the baby did not and the baby is innocent and denied LIFE, LIBERTY and the PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS . . . Shameful, Indecent, Inhumane, Insane and Murderous, if you ask me.
*** God still absolutely loves even the vilest, most wicked person and offers repentance and salvation to everyone up to the point of death.
Thank you for your comment, Kelley.
When questioned by God, the woman, Eve, said, “The serpent deceived me.” The first thing that died was their (Adam & Eve’s) innocence. They saw or realized that they were naked and made fig leaves to hide their shame. Secondly, they were separated from God. Death does not mean cease to exist, but it means separation (from God). This is spiritual death. They were afraid to face God after eating the fruit unlike as before. This was not a problem. All their children were then born separated from God. God told Adam and Eve “from dust you were taken and to dust you shall return.” Adam and Eve became mortal once they ate the fruit where as before they were immortal. It took 950 years for Adam to die physically but the death process began when they ate the forbidden fruit.
“Pre-Christian mythology” is all bogus. There is no goddess. All such things are conjured up from demonic spirits.
God set a flaming sword to prevent the eating of the fruit of the tree of life. Adam and Eve were also exiled from the Garden of Eden. Only those who overcome the world by their faith will eat of the tree of life.
How can you equate the Bible and the Quran? They are not the same. Scripture is given by God, the Quran is not. I will leave the source of the Quran to you to figure out. Eve demoted HERSELF by falling forthe serpent’s deceit; nonetheless God promised her that one of her descendents (Jesus Christ) would crush the head of the serpent. Thus, God was going to rescue the woman from her dilemma.

Actually, it is God who gives life to every living thing. God made Adam from the dust of the ground and gave him life, the breath of life. He made Adam a living being. Adam was created in the image of God, which included the free exercise of his will. He also had immortality and was innocent of doing any wrong. God told Adam, “You may freely eat of every tree in the garden, but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you may not eat, for you shall surely die in the day you eat of it.” This made Adam responsible for his own actions in either choosing to obeying or disobeying God. Adam soon eats the fruit and told God it was His fault for provide Eve as a wife. Eve said that the serpent deceived her. Thus begins man’s inclination to shirk personal responsibility for his actions.
God took charge of the situation after man’s disobedience and he told Adam that he would return to dust, and because he listened to his wife instead of God, Adam would have to earn a living by the sweat of his brow. The woman would have pain in childbirth but would be saved through having children. This is the first promise of a Redeemer. You will notice that though God told Adam the consequences of his actions He did not choose or make for Adam decisions or actions. The first couple chose death. It is because of this chose, people have been separated from God ever since. In other words, people are spiritually dead because of their choice.
God is holy; there is no evil in him whatsoever. It is not possible for evil to reside with God. In fact, the Bible declares that the wages of sin is death. What people earn by sinning is death. However, God wanted a family. The entire universe has been created for God to get Himself a family. The wicked, who are not a part of His family, are treated as rubbish and are burned.
God so loved the people He had created that He sent His only begotten Son, Jesus Christ, to receive the wrath of God against everyone’s sins and thereby taste death for every person. When the process was completed Jesus said, “It is finished”, He gave up His spirit and went to paradise. God then offers to each human being eternal life, forgiveness of sin, the righteousness of God, and an escape from the God’s just wrath. This is done by repenting of our sin, and believing in Jesus. This belief includes believing that Jesus died for you personally. You can invite Him into your heart and life. A sample prayer could be something to the affect of the following words, “Lord Jesus Christ, I acknowledge that I am a sinner and am separated from You, please forgive me of my evil, my wrongdoing, my sin and come into my life.”
Whoever does not believe in Jesus chooses death, and the wrath of God abides on them.

The defeated Section 220 of Senate Bill 1 (S.1) tried to silence grassroots organizations, primarily the conservative groups, though the liberal groups would also be affected. However the liberal groups would be affected to a much lesser degree just because they have not been as effective as conservative groups. This was but the first salvo of legislative attacks that can be expected from the leftist liberals leading this Congress. Next we can have to deal with legislation calling for a “Hate Crimes” bill as well as legislation that will try to reinstate the misnamed “Fairness” Doctrine legislation. God willing, I will talk about “Hate Crimes” legislation in a future article. We will now look at the “Fairness” Doctrine.
IMDB, the Earth’s Biggest Movie Database ™, of all places, had an item on its website entitled “The Return of the Fairness Doctrine”. It reported that radial left wing liberal Congressman Dennis Kucinich (D-Ohio – unfortunately) and newly elected socialist Senator Bernie Sanders (I-Vermont) “indicated that they plan to introduce legislation this year that would require the FCC to restore the Fairness Doctrine, a rule that once compelled broadcasters to present all sides of controversial issues. Kucinich said that he will chair a new House subcommittee of the House Government Reform Committee that will hold hearings on the role of the FCC and consider reinstating the Fairness Doctrine. Most analysts agreed that the rule would have little effect on broadcast television networks, which generally attempt to observe at least the spirit of the Fairness Doctrine, which was overturned in 1987 during the Reagan administration. But it would play havoc with talk radio stations, which currently are dominated by conservative hosts. Today's (Wednesday) New York Daily News quoted Rush Limbaugh as saying that the calls for reinstatement amount to a "hush Rush" campaign. Michael Harrison, editor of Talkers magazine, told the newspaper that the Fairness Doctrine "did nothing except chill free speech." He added, "Talk radio owes its explosive growth over the last 20 years to the repeal of the Fairness Doctrine." Other experts doubted that it could be reinstated, noting that President Bush would almost certainly veto any legislation to do so.”
I would expect to see this bill raise its ugly face sooner rather than later in the 110th Congress with the radical Speaker Nancy “The Most Powerful Woman in the World” Pelosi running the San Francisco show and the renegade ultra liberal and failed Presidential candidate Kucinich squeaking, squalling and spewing his liberal drivel. We conservative and Christian conservatives must be very vigilant of some liberal slight of hand sneaking into some bill this dangerous piece of legislation. The main stream media, CBS, CNN, NBC and ABC and most major newspapers have a not so subtle bent on the way they present the news. They are as ex-CBS reporter Bernard Goldberg's book title denotes "Bias".
If the media agrees with the leftist liberal slant it (the media) is considered “fair” and “objective” and seen as “generally attempt(ing) to observe at least the spirit of the Fairness Doctrine” as quoted in the IMDb piece above. However, IMDb and liberal supporters alike would contend that the “Fairness” Doctrine would “play havoc with talk radio stations, which currently are dominated by conservative hosts”, that is any conservative “bias” in the media is seen as stifling free speech. “All” that the liberals want to do is give both sides an equal chance to express themselves (on conservative talk radio shows or stations). Why is this not the case on broadcast TV or the newspaper or NPR or PBS? The reason is for the reason I had stated previously, if you agree with the liberal leftist that is not “bias” it is “fair” and “objective”. This is one of the prime tactics of the lying leftist liberals. Change the meaning of words “bias” like “tolerance” means agreeing with our view (the liberal agenda or view) otherwise you are biased and intolerant bigoted fascists . . . It is okay for us (liberals to have a one-sided media dominated by the liberal elite) but it is not okay for a market driven successful conservative talk show industry because the espouse views too different than our and present a roadblock to the complete socialization and indoctrination of this society to the liberal “right” way.
Make A Good Choice and defeat all of the leftist attempts to ram through the completely unneeded “Fairness” Doctrine. The rise of the conservative talk show, bloggers and other alternative media have merely leveled somewhat an otherwise unleveled playing field.

Part 1 link
Some Christians say that “safe” sex education is important because more and more teenagers are getting pregnant and contracting STDs at younger and younger ages. They do not want to teach abstinence only because that would “impose their faith” on others. Real Christians could never believe in making sinful, sexual suggestions to children. They will never believe in giving any advice about sin except to condemn it and to help bring people out of it. Romans 13:14 says, “Put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and MAKE NOT PROVISION FOR THE FLESH, TO FULFILL THE LUSTS THEREOF.” II Timothy 4:2, 3 says, “Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but AFTER OWN LUSTS SHALL THEY HEAP TO THEMSELVES TEACHERS, having itching ears.”
This “safe” fornication education plants dirty, lustful thoughts into the minds of children. Sin should be treated like deadly poison and the minds of children should be treated as if they are the most precious, valuable, and vulnerable thing on the planet. “When lust has conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death.” (James 1:15) Therefore, there is no “safe” sin. If you imply that there is, then you are being deceitful even if you’re giving factual information. If it is true that teenagers are committing more murders at a younger and younger age, then should we instruct them at taxpayers’ expense as to how to kill in a way that would be less painful for their victims?
“But among you there must not be even a HINT of sexual immorality, or any kind impurity, or of greed, because these are improper for God’s holy people. Nor should there be obscenity…” (Ephesians 5:3, 4) “Have NOTHING TO DO with the fruitless DEEDS OF DARKNESS, but rather expose them. For it is shameful even to mention what the disobedient do in secret.” (Ephesians 5:11, 12) Ephesians 4:29 says, “Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen.” The “safe” fornication advocates should have their mouths washed out with soap and water.
Proverbs 22:6 says, “Train up a child in the way he should go and when he is old he will not depart from it.” It sometimes seems like passages like this need not be in the Bible. Isn’t this obvious? Not to some people. They think that sometimes it’s better to train a child in the way he shouldn’t go. God had the foresight to see that Satan would twist their minds. Deuteronomy 18:9 says not to learn how to do wicked things.
A real Christian would never put a stumbling block in the way of a sinner. (Leviticus 19:14b) Not only do the false Christians corrupt their own children, but they arrogantly force this disgusting teaching on our children at our expense (through taxes). If someone causes a Christian child to sin, it would be better for that person to be thrown into the sea with a millstone around his neck. (Matthew 18:6-9) II Peter 2:14 says, “Having eyes full of adultery, and that cannot cease from sin; beguiling unstable souls: an heart they have exercised with covetous practices; cursed children”. II Peter 2:17-19 says, “These are wells without water, clouds that are carried with a tempest; to whom the mist of darkness is reserved for ever. For when they speak great swelling words of vanity, they ALLURE THROUGH THE LUSTS OF THE FLESH, through much wantonness, those that were clean escaped from them who live in error. While THEY PROMISE THEM LIBERTY, they themselves are the servants of corruption: for of whom a man is overcome, of the same is HE BROUGHT IN BONDAGE.”
It does not matter whether the statistics show that this “safe sex” teaching “works”. Pregnancy and STD prevention are not worth the price of leading children down a path of sin. What an unholy bargain with the devil this is! No man can serve two masters: for either he will HATE the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and DESPISE the other. (Matthew 6:24) A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit. (Matthew 7:17) Some may say, “Teenagers are going have sex anyway, so we may as well reduce the suffering and negative economic impact of it.” But the Bible says, “So from now on we regard no one from a worldly point of view.” (II Corinthians 5:16) This passage, taken in context, shows the difference between someone who has only head knowledge of what the cross means and one who really believes it in his heart. “For our rejoicing is this, the testimony of our conscience, that in simplicity and godly sincerity, NOT WITH FLESHLY WISDOM, but by the grace of God, we have had our conversation in the world, and more abundantly to you-ward.” (II Corinthians 1:12)
Some people say that I am self-righteous for saying these things. What could be more SELF-righteous than saying, “I’m going to be a virgin until marriage, but I am going to teach children how NOT to be a virgin.”? Romans 1 says that “God gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonor their own bodies between themselves” because they know “the judgment of God, that they which commit such are worthy of death”.
They also say, “how dare you judge me?” (Matthew 7:1 says, “Judge not lest you be judged.”) I am not judging, but warning. If someone wants to warn me of something that I am doing that will cause me to go hell so that my soul will be saved, then they should by all means do so. I can take it. Judging means passing sentence on someone (compare verses 47 and 48 of John 12). Jesus said, “Ye judge after the flesh; I judge no man.” Putting filthy ideas into someone’s mind is passing a sentence on them. “For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.” God will allow Satan to put filthy thoughts and sickening lustful urges into their flesh forever. “God is not mocked. For whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.” (Galatians 6:7) Whatever deeds you have done, you will receive the same in your own body. (II Corinthians 5:10, Galatians 6:8)
There is, however, something that you should teach your children put on to protect themselves. It’s the armor of God. “For we wrestle NOT against FLESH and blood, but against PRICIPALITIES, against POWERS, against the RULERS of the darkness of THIS WORLD, against spiritual WICKEDNESS IN HIGH PLACES.” (Ephesians 6:12)
To anyone reading this that claims to be a Christian and is still not convinced, I would say this:
How can you believe in suggesting to a child a way to commit a sin that Jesus Christ had to be beaten, whipped, and nailed to a cross for? Could you look a bloody, exhausted, battered Jesus in the eye and still say that this is the right thing to do? In order to be saved, you must believe in the simple, common sense idea that it is always good to teach good things, and always bad to teach bad things. Unless you change and become like a little child, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. (Matthew 18:3) “Therefore, get rid of all moral filth and the evil that is so prevalent, and humbly accept the word planted in you, which can save you.” (James 1:21) “Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you,” (II Corinthians 6:17). “Whosoever is a friend of the world is the enemy of God…cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded.” (James 4:4, 8)
In my next article, I will discuss why it is wrong to keep God out of schools.

KILLING THE GRASSROOTS
Richard Viguerie said in a recent email about this insidious provision (Section 220) of the bill, “… the lobbying reform bill currently before the Senate, would require grassroots causes, even BLOGGERS, who communicate to 500 or more members of the public on policy matters, to register and report quarterly to Congress the same as the big K Stree lobbyists. Section 220 would amend existing lobbying reporting law by creating the most expansive intrusion on First Amendment rights ever…”
VOTE FOR AMENDMENT 20 TO S.1
“…Senator (David) Vitter (R-LA)…is now a co-sponsor of Amendment 20 by Senator Robert Bennett (R-UT) to remove Secton 220 from the bill. Unless Amendment 20 succeeds, the Senate will have criminalized the exercise of First Amendment rights. We’d be living under totalitarianism, not democracy.”
CRIMINALIZING EXERCISING FIRST AMENDMENT RIGHTS
American Family Association comments “The grassroots lobbying section of U.S. Senate Bill 1 (Section 220) contains onerous reporting requirements (on a quarterly basis), and civil fines of up to $100,000 for failing to comply. .Basically these new rules were written to isolate pro-family and conservative Christian organizations. Large corporations (which spend millions in lobbying expenses) would be exempt. Communications aimed at an organization’s members, employees, officers, or shareholders” would be exempt. That means that groups such as the AFL-CIO, MoveOn.org, National Education Association and other organized groups would be exempt.”
TAKE ACTION TODAY
(1) Sign GrassrootsFreedom.com’s petition or the Focus on the Family petition
(2) Email or call both of your Senators at (202) 224-2315 and ask them to vote yes for Amendment 20 on this bill, otherwise to vote no if it it is not amended. They could vote on this bill tomorrow, Thursday, January 18th.
I did both. Please make A Good Choice and do the same.

I am all for the conscientious treatment of animals or any living creature including animals used in research. However, let us put things in proper perspective. Minks, chickens, dogs, cats or rats are being used in research for the possible saving of human life. Why do we protest this use of animals? Is it because we have acquiesced to the incessant screeching protests of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) and other radical liberal extremists?
The press covers these insane radicals and seemingly concurring or sympathizing with their cause. I think a more accurate explanation for PETA would be those who are continuously “Protesting Every Thing American”. To me it is just not American to prefer any animal over a human being. Our United States Constitution guarantees humans (including the pre-born baby) the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. I do not read anything in our Constitution that gives that same “right” to Fido.
This is one very excellent example of the insanity and the hypocrisy and the outworking of the morally depraved and deficient liberal philosophy or way of looking at the world. It seems that the liberal left is more concerned about the rights and status of dogs and cats than then are of human beings. Why? After all isn’t the subject of this outrage and public uproar merely a dog, an animal. Is it because some on the liberal left believe that this was dog may have been a relative of some reincarnated sister of Shirley McLain? Or was the dog a fiancée of some liberal leftist who planned to soon demand their right to “marry” or have “legal unions” sanctioned by the government and the courts? That is the logical conclusion to this insanity.
It is beyond baffling to me. Where oh where is the outrage at the death of innocent HUMAN BABIES in the grotesque and REALLY offensive (especially to the baby!) unscrupulous and horrid partial birth abortion when the illustrious President Clinton vetoed the ban? Where is the outrage over this malicious procedure, for any abortion for that matter or even the immoral and wasteful and unproductive embryonic stem cell research? Where is the outrage in the media when a Kansas abortionist, Dr. George Tiller, routinely kills babies in the trimester and alledgedly not reporting rapes of young girls, while aborting their babies? For a good summary of what real horror Dr. Tiller is doing click here and listen to comments by Bill O'Reilly.
In further reporting this story on WKYC-TV’s website they use the title, “Doctor sacrifices a dog during sales presentation”. I emphasize the inflammatory word, “sacrifices”. What about so called abortion doctors who exterminate babies at a rate of thousands everyday across America? Where is the outcry on behalf of human beings? These babies are the ones who are really being SACRIFICED to the god of convenience and pleasure. As unfortunate as this error in judgment made by one neurosurgeon that was presenting a medical device that would ultimate help to save HUMAN lives. Thanks to the very liberal mainstream media, PETA and their leftist lunatics allies we have come to a point in our society that we apparently value a dog’s life more than we value human life. Insane, if you ask me. Unlike PETA and its pals, I would much prefer using animals over ANY humans, including in any embryonic stem cell research.

Both common descent and the theory of evolution are merely theories. Natural and false evidence has been construed in such a way as to expel the existence of God in the minds of many people. This allows them to fantasize that there is no one greater than themselves, no Master Designer, no Creator. For this they eventually must give an account at the end of their lives to that Master Designer, Creator! You can stake your eternity on these false theories and be wrong therefore insuring your ticket to hell and dying the second death.
Schools teaching evolution are actually directing their students into hell, instead of showing them the way to eternal life. This is being done to the children at an age in which the children could otherwise embrace life eternal.
God commanded on the third day of creation that the earth would bring forth grass, herbs, and fruit trees each yielding seed after its own kind. On the fifth day of creation God commanded the waters to bring froth sea creatures and the fowl of the air and they reproduced after each their kind.
On the sixth day o creation at God’s command the earth brought forth living creatures, beasts, cattle and creeping things. Each reproduced after its own kind. Each day was 24 hours in length as defined by Scripture the evening and the morning.
The evidence of the seven day week is with us today, a carryover from creation. It does not matter that other cultures have followed Satan’s direction and deviate from the seven day week.
There is much evidence validating God’s Word, but a godless people refuse to acknowledge the signs. Jesus healed the sick, fed the multitudes and yet He was asked for a sign that they might believe. Jesus said no sign will be given except the sign of the prophet Jonah. As Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of the fish, so Jesus was to be three days in the earth. Jesus then rose from the dead and today His burial cloth is in Turin, Italy. The blood on the cloth is fresh, which indicates the body was immortal. No other person’s blood would leave stains of fresh blood. This is a remnant of the sign of te prophet Jonah.

LIBERAL VERSUS CONSERVATIVE APPROACHES
The liberal sees the poor as a class or community of needy. The liberal sees the poor and wants to provide help by means of meeting the poor person’s need, a hand out. The liberal feels sorry for the poor and sees him or her as helpless and hopeless and a victim and product of his or her environment. The liberal’s solution to poverty is a welfare program. The poor will always be poor and needs the liberal’s assistance. Basically the liberal provides the poor with a fish a blanket and a place out of the rain or cold. In essence, the liberal provides a way for the poor to cope.
The conservative sees the poor as an individual. The conservative sees the poor and desires to provide him or her with the means to escape his or her impoverished condition. The conservative does not see the poor person’s condition as inevitable and unchangeable. The conservative desires to give the poor a helping hand. The environment that a true conservative tries to create is one in which everyone would have an opportunity to fulfill the American Dream through taking personal initiative and responsibility. In other words, the conservative provides the fishing pole and teaches the poor how to fish for himself or herself providing a way out, to escape.
Many people have been “poor” at some point in their lives. But they don’t necessarily look for a hand out (liberalism’s take) which includes providing subsistence, entitlements or welfare. A key tenet of liberalism, therefore, is rewarding loyalty, resignation and/or the status quo, it is the big brother, big-government taking care of you mentality. The other philosophy (the conservative take) is a hand up, which entails providing encouragement, employment and rewarding hard-work through individual effort.
Ironically wasn’t it during the Clinton Administration that work requirements were a big part of welfare reform. I think that this was more due to a conservative congress as opposed or despite the oh-so-liberal administration in the White House.
TWO WAYS OF LOOKING AT MORALITY
The liberal generally believes that there is no right and wrong, that is how they can justify being lenient on criminals, welfare and entitlements, acceptance and promotion of homosexuality, promotion of promiscuity and acceptance of abortion and related pro-death “choices”. The conservative, on the other hand, tends to believe in moral absolutes, causing them to support such issues as personal responsibility, the death penalty, pro-life, traditional one-man, one-woman marriage and abstinence based sex education.
In general, i think that liberals suffer from a severe "decency deficit". Many liberals are highly intelligent knowing exactly what they are doing when they preach and propagate their liberal dogma and agenda (ACLU, AU, PFAW, NEA, GLAD, George Soros, Tim Gill, Sherrod Brown, Chuck Schumer, Ted Kennedy, Nancy “The Most Powerful Woman in the World, Do You Hear That Hillary?” Pelosi, Barbara Boxer etc). However, some liberal adherents (many Democratic lemming followers and deluded do-gooders) follow the liberal mantra unwittingly. The result however is the same, destruction of American values and founding principles. Pandering to the poor, I am afraid, is just one of liberals’ key pillars of the liberal "faith".

THE REAL REASON BEHIND ESCR
Agape Press reports, “A leading pro-life advocate contends there's one reason that so many politicians support the destruction of human embryos for "research" -- and that reason is not so that a cure for a disease can be found. Judie Brown, president of American Life League, says despite the fact that adult stem cells have already been used to treat diseases and that stem cells derived from the amniotic fluid of pregnant women have shown promise, proponents of … ESCR, continue to push the practice for one reason: money. Brown assets that some members of Congress see the substantial amounts of money that biotech firms are investing in ESCR -- and those lawmakers, she believes, want to see more and more money poured into it as well. "Not because it will ever ultimately result in a cure for a disease," she says, "but because there's big money to be made in manufactured hearts, livers, and other body parts." It is evident to her, she shares, that those members of Congress are "more interested in extending their own lives into immortality than they are in honesty." Brown says it is not surprising that these lawmakers would condone the killing of human beings in the embryonic stage, since they also believe in the killing of unborn children right up until birth -- and, in some cases, during birth.”
Money can’t buy me love as the Beatles once sang, but maybe it can buy me longevity or a new body part despite the high price of denying life to another human being.
How would the new 110th Congress, House vote on H.R. 3 the bill that funds embryonic stem cell research? I was especially curious as to how the so-called blue dog conservative Democrats would vote on this bill. The Cybercast News Service reported, “In November, five pro-life Democrats who campaigned against embryonic stem cell research were elected to the U.S. House of Representatives. On Thursday (yesterday), four of those five voted against a bill that would expand embryonic stem cell research. Voting “no” were Democratic freshman Reps. Heath Shuler of North Carolina, Joe Donnelly of Indiana, Brad Ellsworth of Indiana, and Charlie Wilson of Ohio. But Democrat Chris Carney of Pennsylvania voted for the bill...”
This was indeed heartening to me, politicians, Conservative politicians and Democrats, as well, sticking to the promises they made during their campaigns!. This is something many Republican like former Senators DeWine and Allen did not do enough of and that is why they are “former”. I hope and pray that Conservatives of both parties will begin to consistently stick to their principles and not be poisoned by the power and prestige of office as too many pseudo-Conservatives did the past dozen years.
THE NEXT STEP
I sincerely hope our pseudo-Conservative President repents of his moderate/liberal tendencies and stick to his principles and veto this bill if and when it arrives on his desk to sign. Then, I hope that the representatives uphold his veto. Supporting and creating a culture of life is always A Good Choice isn’t it?

A clear cut example of Christians being forced to propagate a religious teaching that they don’t believe in is the teaching of the theory of evolution in the public schools. The establishment arrogantly claims that evolution is obvious fact, even though it requires much faith to believe in it. If anyone teaches what the Bible says about it, then it is a Constitutional crisis, because the government shouldn’t propagate religion. But it is perfectly acceptable for it to propagate evolution as an indisputable fact, even though a large portion of the population disagrees with it.
I do not deny that there are cases where a mutation in the DNA of an organism can be passed on to its offspring, causing deviations from God’s original design. I even accept the idea that this can lead to new species. (The Biblical concept of “kind” is not equivalent to species as classified by modern scientists, especially for extinct organisms.) But there is no evidence that mutations have ever lead to a “higher” or more complex organism (no new biological functionality). It is certainly a leap of faith to say that these mutations are the cause of all variations among living things.
The general theory of evolution teaches that all life evolved over millions of years from a single cell. It teaches that this ongoing process is a painful, struggle for the survival of the fittest. Therefore, if there is a god who set these things in motion, he is a murderer, because he created a world of death, sickness, and pain. The Bible teaches that Adam was created from the dust of the earth (he did not descend from any animal), and that death came into the world through this one man. This happened because Adam disobeyed God’s word. I do not deny that there is a struggle for the survival of the fittest in the world today. But God did not design the world that way. All of the death, disease, poverty, and suffering in the world is caused by people disobeying God’s word. Many sins temporarily alleviate suffering, but they always cause even more separation from God and suffering in the long run. So it’s a vicious cycle.
Have you ever lied to get out of receiving a punishment that you know you deserved? Would a just God let this go unpunished? Have you ever looked at someone with lust? Would you have, in that instant, committed a sexual sin with this person if could have? Is that not the same as adultery? Would a just God let this go unpunished? Have you coveted? These things separate you from God and leave you vulnerable to their consequences. Suffering, poverty, and even death in this life are only temporary consequences of sin. These serve as warnings for the eternal consequence of sin which is eternal punishment in hell.
But Jesus Christ was willing to take your punishment for the sins that you have committed. He came to break the cycle of suffering, sin, and death in your life. You can accept Him as your Lord and Savior and be reconciled to God. You can do this by turning away from your sins, trusting in God that what He calls is sin is always ultimately for the worst. You already have a basic understanding of what sin is from your conscience, which God gave you (it did not evolve), but you can know it better by studying God’s word, the Bible. Believe that Jesus died on the cross to take the punishment for sins. Confess this publicly and be immersed in water (you can do this in a Bible-believing church) for the remission of your sins and as a sign of your acceptance of Jesus as Lord of your life. Then you should get in a church that teaches these things, diligently read the Bible (check that what I am saying agrees with Scripture), and repeat these things to as many people as you can.

I will discuss the doctrine of “safe” fornication education in my next article.

Tough it is futile and supposedly wrong to pursue the terrorists or their supporter, such as Saddam’s Iraq, yet it is okay to kill innocent human beings in the name of some hoped for or fanciful dream of magical cures of all of our current diseases from Alzheimer’s to Parkinson’s. The leftists and their anti-war supporters protest the war because of the deaths of innocent civilians, but they embrace the idea of killing human life for the sake of some unproven, hoped for future cure. Wrong.
Tomorrow, Thursday, January 11th, the U.S. House of Representatives will consider legislation, H.R.3, to expand the funding of embryonic stem cell research, which results in the destruction of human life. As I stated in my two most recent articles, this legislation is very wrong, just like cutting and running from the war on terror in Iraq is wrong.
In a CNSNews.com article today titled, “Pro-Life Dems Face Tough Ride on Embryonic Research” Lori Lipman Brown, director of the humanist lobbying group Secular Coalition for America, is quoted as saying that she hoped pro-life lawmakers would not go so far as to want to protect what she described as "a cell." After all, don't others say that the soon-to-be-dead-baby is only a “tissue”, a “fetus”, “a cell”, a “mass of cells”? I guess it helps one to rationalize the killing? If you ask me, it’s mass confusion, it’s mass collusion or it’s mass delusion.
Life clearly begins at conception, no ifs, ands or buts, no need to defining the meaning of “is”.
It will be interesting to see how the so-called “Pro-life Democrats” will vote on the ESCR issue tomorrow. The article mentioned above noted that in November Reps. Heath Shuler of North Carolina, Joe Donnelly of Indiana, Brad Ellsworth of Indiana, Charlie Wilson of Ohio, and Chris Carney of Pennsylvania all were pro-life Democrats who campaigned against ESC research and were elected to Congress. Let’s hope and pray that they will make A Good Choice and vote against death by voting to defeat H.R. 3.
Call your congressman or congresswoman at 202-224-3121 and ask him/her to stand up for the dignity of human life and vote NO on H.R.3 and reject government-sanctioned funded research allowing the destruction of human life..
Tuesday, January 09, 2007
In my post yesterday I mentioned that there were two good reasons for not funding or supporting ESCR: (1) the fact that adult stem cell research has already yielded successes in providing practical treatment of various diseases and conditions already, while ESCR has yielded a blank. (2) ESCR is absolutely immoral and unethical, because it involves killing human life.
Hunter outlines a third reason for not supporting ESCR funding in her Cybernet News Service news article. She writes, “A new study has found that stem cells are in plentiful supply in amniotic fluid, but at a time the charged issue of experimentation involving human embryos is back on the political agenda in the U.S., a group that favors the controversial research insisted Monday the discovery does not make embryonic stem cells (ESC) obsolete.”
One website defines amniotic fluid as being "a colorless liquid that surrounds and protects the baby inside the amniotic sac within the uterus. When the amniotic sac ruptures, this may be referred to as your "water breaking."
Hunter's article continues, ”Two Republican lawmakers (Rep. Roscoe Bartlett (R-Md.) and Rep. Phil Gingrey (R-Ga.)) - both with medical backgrounds - announced Monday they would introduce alternative legislation (which they called an “ethical alternative” to the Democratic bill) on Tuesday, authorizing federal funding for stem cell research that does not involve creating or destroying human embryos. Two days later (Thursday), House Speaker Nancy Pelosi plans to reintroduce legislation to expand federal funding of embryonic stem cell research.”
What the proposed alternative stem cell legislation (to the Democratic backed Stem Cell Research Enhancement Act or HR3) would do would be to speed up federal funding and progress toward expanding the number of ethical stem cell lines. It would in essense avoid having to deal the issue of killing human embryos. It seems to me that this new study identifies an area of research that deserves funding espeically since it does not involve destroying human life.
Now we have just one more reason or justification NOT to fund the use of ANY embryonic stem cell research, we just have to apply pressure on our representatives urging them to reject the Democratic pro-death Stem Cell Research Enhancement Act (HR 3). America must just begin to stem the tide away from a culture of death to a culture of life. This is just the right thing to do, A Good Choice . . .
Monday, January 08, 2007
I wrote the following letter to my congressman today asking him to vote against the Stem Cell [read, embryonic] Research Enhancement Act or HR3:
"I urge you to vote against the Stem Cell Research Enhancement Act (HR 3). This legislation would increase federal funding for research using embryonic stem cells (ESCR). First of all, to date there have been no positive outcomes resulting from ESCR, whereas there has been many successful outcomes from research on ADULT stem cells as well as from using umbilical cord blood. Why has there has been no private sector funding for ESCR? If ESCR was such a panacea, then why are there no sources of private funding? Could it be that private foundations and corporations do not believe in the merit of such research? Why should taxpayers fund such untested schemes?
"Secondly, ESCR is immoral. By necessity, ESCR requires the killing of life. Killing of life for whatever "lofty" purpose one might espouse or rationalize is wrong. Please vote against this bill.”
I fear that Pelosi & Partners have a great deal of mischief and mayhem up their sleeves for America during the first 100 hours and over the next two years for that matter. We must be very vigilant and duly diligent in tracking their every move legislatively. Conservatives and Christians make your voice heard in the halls of congress by informing your congressman or congresswoman beginning on this matter of destroying life by encouraging your representative to vote no on the Stem Cell Research Enhancement Act (HR3).

Satan is very real. He has blinded your eyes to the truth. Willfully or unwittingly you are following the devil.
Jesus, who is both God and man said, “If they don’t believe Moses how will they believe what I say?” He went on to say, “They have Moses and the prophets. If they will not believe them they will not believe (even) though one were to raise from the dead and speak to them” This is the exact situation that you are in today.
Unless you repent and invite Jesus into your heart, your destiny is to die, to go to hell, to be judged, to kneel before Jesus and to proclaim Him to be Lord and then to be cast into the lake of fire where you will be tormented by fire endlessly. In other words, you will be forever separated from God.
By teaching evolution in school, students are programmed to not believe in Jesus. Therefore the children, also, are being condemned to be sent to the lake of fire.
Jesus said, “Allow the little children to come to me and forbid them not.” The present American education system is constructing obstacles in the way of our children to know the truth and therefore coming to Jesus.
You, believers and teachers of Evolution, all are enemies of God. You must repent before you can no longer do so . . . Take advantage of the opportunity while you have it.

The National Guard, which President Bush reluctantly sent to the border under public pressure, allegedly to back up the border patrol, was apparently overrun by gunman on the Arizona border this past Wednesday night. Click here to see the story and related news videos reporting on this incident.
It is absurd that the border with Mexico is still relatively unsecured. Is President Bush so hell bent on the North American Union that he does not want to jeopardize relations with Mexico? Something is terribly wrong. I say unshackle the National Guard, send more troops to the border and seal it up once and for all.
Let’s enforce the laws that are on the books, let’s let the IRS deny any payments by businesses to illegals for wages paid and let the IRS fine those businesses severely. Let’s jail and severely punish the business owners that hire and facilitate the employment of illegal aliens. NO AMNESTY. ENFORCE OUR IMMIGRATION LAWS NOW. BEGIN TO RETURN THE ILLEGALS TO THEIR COUNTRIES OF ORIGIN NOW.
What does Speaker Pelosi or Majority Leader Reid have in mind to solve this serious problem? Will they be only concerned in forcing their socialist agenda on America? With President Bush not providing any leadership on this issue, America waffles and wavers and more illegals enter by the hour. Will someone please listen to Representative Tom Tancredo (author of In Mortal Danger: The Battle for America's Border and Security), who wants to solve this terrible problem? Let’s bug our representatives and senators until they wake up from their lethargy and really solve this problem.

Isn’t it bad enough that homosexuality is running rampant in our culture being embraced and espoused by the liberal elitists, incessantly and effectively pushed by a tiny cadre of homosexual activists and their deceived or deluded accomplices, and funded by the likes of Colorado software entrepreneur and homosexual activist Tim Gill and billionaire and radical cause financier George Soros? But now they want the full force and support of the government and the legal system to justify their immorality? Homosexuality is spreading like a cancer, an oozing open sore on America, stealing the very soul and strength of our sons and daughters, and America's heart and soul.
The following are 10 pieces of legislation which Speaker Pelosi has co-sponsored in the past. You can almost take it to the bank that these bills will be regurgitated sometime during the 110th Congress, more than likely sooner than later. They must all be defeated.
In a recent email that I received from Americans for Truth (AFT), it excerpted from New Congress Expected to Consider (Homosexual) Bills in ’07, by Lou Chibbaro Jr, published Dec 15, 2006, by the homosexual newspaper Washington Blade: Top 10 (homosexual) bills in Congress.
(Homosexual)-supportive members of Congress have introduced these bills at the request of gay rights or AIDS advocacy groups in recent years. All of them have died in committee after Republican leaders in the House and Senate refused to bring them up for a vote. The new Democratic-controlled Congress is expected to be more sympathetic toward the 10 bills, but Democratic leaders chose not to place any of them on their agenda for their first 100 days in office.
Employment Non-Discrimination Act (or ENDA): Calls for banning private sector employment discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity.
Local Law Enforcement Enhancement Act: Calls for giving the federal government authority to prosecute hate crimes based on a victim’s sexual orientation, gender identity or disability.
Military Readiness Enhancement Act: Calls for repealing the U.S. military’s “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy so that gay male, lesbian and bisexual troops would be allowed to serve openly.
Uniting American Families Act: Calls for amending the U.S. Immigration & Nationality Act to allow foreign nationals who are same-sex domestic partners of U.S. citizens to apply for the same immigration rights offered to foreign nationals who legally marry U.S. citizens. Similar to the existing law’s application to heterosexuals, the bill calls for prosecution of same-sex couples who fraudulently form a partnership to enable a foreigner to obtain immigration rights.
Domestic Partner Health Benefits Equity Act/Tax Equity for Health Plan Beneficiaries Act: Introduced respectively in the Senate and House, the identical bills call for amending the Internal Revenue Code to end taxation of health insurance benefits for domestic partners. Under the current IRS Code, legally married employees do not pay taxes on their employers’ contribution to their health insurance benefits that cover their spouses and dependent children. But (homosexual) and lesbian employees must pay taxes on similar benefits as if they were ordinary income.
Domestic Partners Benefits & Obligations Act: Calls for providing health insurance and other benefits to same-sex and opposite-sex domestic partners of federal government employees. Under current law, these benefits are only available to legally married spouses of federal employees. The bill sets various requirements to define a domestic partnership, including an affidavit that the partners live together, are not relatives, are over 18 and are not married.
Clarification of Federal Employment Protections Act: Declares that, “federal employees are protected from discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation” and “[repudiates] any assertion to the contrary.” (Homosexual)-supportive members of the House of Representatives introduced the bill to overrule a controversial decision by U.S. Special Counsel Scott Bloch not to enforce a longstanding federal employment policy banning sexual orientation discrimination against federal workers.
Family Medical Leave Inclusion Act: Calls for amending the Family & Medical Leave Act of 1993 to allow government and private sector employees to take leave to care for a domestic partner who has a serious health condition. The bill also would allow medical leave for the care of a same-sex married partner or the parent-in-law, adult child, sibling or grandparent of a same-sex partner who has a serious health condition.
Responsible Education About Life Act: Calls for creating a $206 million federal grant program to award funds to states for comprehensive sexuality education that is not linked to advocacy of abstinence-only-until-marriage. Supporters say the bill is needed because existing sexuality education programs funded by the federal government are linked to abstinence-only policies.
Early Treatment for HIV Act: Calls for allowing low-income, childless adults with HIV to become eligible for Medicaid coverage before they develop full-blown AIDS. Under current law, people who meet the income requirements for Medicaid are ineligible for the federal health program if they have HIV but are not “disabled” by having AIDS.
None of these bills must ever become law. I agree with AFT that it is “urgent that pro-family citizens––Republicans, Democrats and independents alike––contact their U.S. Representative and Senators, as well as President Bush, to state their opposition to passage of all pro-homosexuality “sexual orientation” bills in the new Congress….”
“At the top of the (homosexual/lesbian) wish-list is ENDA (Employment Non-Discrimination Act) . It would use federal power to force businesses to support and subsidize homosexuality and gender confusion (“transgender lifestyles”: think men in dresses, using female restrooms).
“Also on the homosexual docket is a homosexuality/gender-inclusive “hate crimes” bill, which will be the precursor to the homosexual lobby’s ultimate goal of using the state to curtail anti-”(homosexual)”/”homophobic” (read: Christian and conservative) “hate speech.””
