The Marriage Destroyers

Marriage is an institution, a sacred one at that. True marriage can only be between one man and one woman. This has been true in America since its founding. Only recently has a perversion of the definition of marriage been attempted and even permitted to occur in some states.
.
Should same-sex couples be allowed to marry?  Same-sex individuals can marry without question, people of the opposite sex. It is a fallacy that same-sex individuals can't marry. However, the term or definition of marriage itself is under attack. The Left is well versed at twisting and perverting the definition of words, look at the hideous expression "a woman's right to choose" meaning a mother's absolute right to kill her unborn child!
.
Marriage between one-man and one-woman is the standard. Marriage is the exclusive domain of one-man and one-woman relationships; it has been since the founding of this nation. Only recently has this sacred institution been attacked and perverted in some places.  I reiterate, there is no such thing as same-sex marriage. Same-sex ‘marriage’ is a faux imitation of the real thing.
 .
The fraudulent same-sex 'marriage’ movement is clearly the result of an effective propaganda barrage by radical homosexuals and lesbians, their advocates, and other comrades-in-harm. These activists and supporters are intent on destroying the very fabric of American society and culture, the natural family. Those working against the culture include the media, the entertainment industry and many politicians, who seek to benefit from the filthy lucre of those who bankroll this vicious anti-marriage movement.

Perpetuating the Great Homosexual Lie at Eastertime No Less

Here are my comments in response to a very provocative, essentially misleading article, “The Fascinating ‘Science’ of Homosexuality/Lesbianism,” which I read this morning on Alternet.org, a very partisan liberal agenda-promoting not-nearly-the-news website.

“The Fascinating ‘Science’ of Homosexuality/Lesbianism”: Fact or Fantasy?  

Yes, the question of whether being a homosexual, lesbian, bi-sexual, or transgendered is a CHOICE or NOT is being battled around. Desperate to justify unnatural, unhealthy, abnormal, and immoral behavior and lifestyle, the LGBT community seeks a ‘scientific’ explanation for mankind’s and their universal predisposition to sin.

Is there a gene or biological explanation that predisposes a person to adultery, to fornication, to thievery, to pornography, to lying, to embezzlement, to rape, to pedophilia, etc.? No, there is not. Man as a species is fallen. He is naturally prone to sin. From the beginning of time he has tried to justify his behavior, or misbehavior. 

The homosexual or the heterosexual, we are all the same, are sinners destined for separation from God here on earth and for all eternity. However, each person has an opportunity to change, to be transformed, and to overcome the effect of sin in our lives. This is made possible only by the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ, an event being celebrated this very Easter weekend. 

Jesus’ crucifixion, His death, His burial, and His eventual supernatural resurrection offer all of us hope and forgiveness of our sin. We must individually acknowledge our sin and separation and our unworthiness and then accept God’s Resource at Christ’s Expanse (which is GRACE)…

This weekend contemplate the fascinating account of redemption from the sin that keeps us from full fellowship with God…


This weekend make a decision to follow the risen Savior and quit simply following after the vain pleasures of this world…

The Left’s Brutal War on the TEA Party Movement


When I got home from work Thursday evening I had to read the article that I had just been able to glance at in the morning. It originates from the an extreme leftist website, Alternet.org. I offered my comments below to the artcle, “Slick, Paranoid Tea Party Video Aims for Violent Insurrection, Fear walks the land, and the Tea Party Patriots are here to package and sell it.”

The author seems offended by the real fear many Americans have, including many TEA Party participants and sympathizers of the “dictatorial near-future government.”  Well, duh, it’s at our doorstep. President Obama has been described as practicing soft tyranny. Some examples include:
*** refusing to enforce immigration laws,
*** refusing to submit a budget (past due since February 1st),
*** his Justice Department undertakes operations like Fast and Furious, which was designed to discredit gun owners to further his anti-gun agenda.
*** What about his Justice Department refusal to prosecute the New Black Panther Party because the victims were not a minority?  
Like other would-be dictators Dear Leader seems to be comfortable operating above the law.

The author goes on to describe the Tea Party Patriot’s video, shown recently at CPAC, as being “a thinly veiled advertisement for violent insurrection.” What really chaps me is the actual violence and anarchy displayed by the Occupy Wall Street movement, and the refusal of the media to cover the less savory aspects of that incredulous socialist orchestrated movement. Compare any TEA Party event with any OWS event, you can tell a lot by the trash and damage each movement left behind. The OWS movement cost the taxpayers a great deal more than the typical TEA Party protest event ever did.

“Nightmarish bureaucracies” is an apt term to be used to characterize today’s EPA, Education Department, and Justice Department. Just as any business person, who must fight through reams of red tape and maneuver over numerous hoops, to get into and stay in business. The bureaucracy is indeed something to be afraid of… Look what the 2,000 page ObamaCare Bill with its 15,000 pages of regulation will cost Americans…

The slogans “We meet every need” and “Developing Every Need ” seem to me to be describing today’s Democrat Party and President Obama's ‘leadership’ philosophy.

The author cites the Southern Poverty Law Center as a credible source. It isn’t. It is a disreputable, bigoted leftist hate group, which seeks to malign and marginalize any organizations that are diametrically opposed to such ‘rights’ as abortion, homosexuality, and Christian-bashing.

This article was pure vitriol and hatred towards a group and a movement that just wants to get America back its moorings, its founding principles - Fiscal Responsibility, Constitutionally Limited Government, and Free Markets. What in the world is wrong with that?

No to Medicaid Expansion

CCV Action is joining forces with Ohio Pro-Life Action in asking you to contact Republicans in the House because the Medicaid expansion has been repackaged as a "pilot program".  This is called the House Modified Program but it is still a social welfare expansion.  Ohio Pro-Life Action lists their concerns with this extension below and we ask you to contact the House Representatives at the phone numbers listed and ask them to vote against this Medicaid expansion! 
OPLAlogo.jpg

Ohio ProLife Action - No Medicaid Expansion
Federal Monies Attached to Anti-Life Policies

Ohio ProLife Action Statement on Ohio Participation in Federal Medicaid Expansion

Ohio Pro-Life Action is concerned that Ohio not accept federal monies which are attached to anti-life policies and regulations, nor encourage the federal government to incur greater debt to fund this expansion of federal control over Ohio citizens and their health care decisions.

Whereas, those states that participate in federal Medicaid expansion will be governed by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) individual mandate requiring individuals to obtain insurance, thus legislating increased Medicaid recipients subject to the so-called HHS Mandate and entrenching Medicaid in these states as an arm of the federal government...

Whereas, Medicaid has covered for years, under states' limited discretion, the same measures that citizens are protesting in the HHS Mandate as a violation of conscience--surgical abortions (in Ohio in restricted cases),3 contraceptives, abortion-inducing drugs, and sterilizations...

Whereas, Medicaid expansion will expand these tax-funded practices to the underprivileged, which not only violate the conscience rights of many taxpayers, but are elective and medically unnecessary procedures and drugs...

Whereas, leading abortion provider, Planned Parenthood, is a recipient of Medicaid funding for so-called "family planning" measures, and funds for non-abortion procedures frees an abortion provider for its other programs....

Ohio ProLife action calls upon Governor John Kasich, the Ohio House of Representatives, and the Ohio State Senate to decline Ohio participation in federal Medicaid expansion and work instead for Medicaid reform for best use of taxpayer funds and essential medical care for the underprivileged.

We Did It! History Had Been Made!

We did it! After four years of hard work pro-life personhood legislation has passed both houses of the North Dakota legislature! This means that North Dakota is only a popular vote away from being the first state in American history to ban abortion!

This has now set up a nearly 19 month battle that will lead up to the final vote which will take place in November 2014. The state legislature has proven that the people of North Dakota stand on the side of life, but you can bet that the pro-abortion machine will be unleashed like never before. We need to sprint across the finish line and that is why we need you!

In order to make North Dakota the first state in American history to completely ban abortion, we need the tools to fight back against the ruthless attacks of the pro-abortion left that have already begun. In fact the ACLU has already begun organizing a local chapter to fight us in North Dakota. They are preparing and so should we. The backbone of our defenses is our LifeGuard membership club, and now has never been a better time to sign up.
Click the image below to become a LifeGuard


 

By committing to a donation of $10 a month for one year, you will be joining the ranks of concerned citizens across the nation who will not rest until abortion is outlawed not only in North Dakota but all of America!

We are at a history changing moment in the history of the prolife movement and we MUST capitalize on this major victory in Bismarck. So join us, step up to the plate, and become aLifeGuard today!

Late Night Takes: Harvard Basketball, a Class Act?

The Tonight Show With Jay Leno
 
  • Harvard was knocked out of the NCAA tournament in the second round. But don’t kid yourself. This Harvard basketball team went somewhere no other team has gone: to class.

Guns ‘n Moses

Two of the Left’s favorite targets today are guns and the influence of Moses, the author of the first five books of the Bible, which are also referred to as the Pentateuch. Let’s explore these two major barriers in the way of further advancement  the leftist, secularist, and socialist agenda over America. 

Battling Over Guns 

It all comes down to Gun Rights - the rights of law-abiding citizens to own whatever weapons they need to protect themselves and their families - versus Gun Control or "Gun Violence" advocates. The so called Gun Control advocates are really Gun Grabbers. They blame "Guns" for the problem and not the real culprits, the criminals, the gun-runners, the mentally ill with history of violence, illegal aliens with history of violence, and especially the gang-bangers. The government and law enforcement need to go after the real criminal and gangs and place any person or criminal convicted of using a gun in a crime on a registry (like sex offenders) so the law-abiding public can be aware of that person's proclivity to use fire arms illegally.


It is just foolish to focus on controlling law-abiding citizens and IGNORING criminals who are intent on using guns in the commission of their next crime which would include going after newly disarmed or restricted law-abiding gun-owning citizens! But it is just like the progressive left to defend the 'rights' of the wrong, instead of defending the rights of those who do no wrong. Bill recently wrote in response to the above comment I made to an Alternet.org article (“NY Rallies for Gun Control Legislation: 'History Cannot Reflect That We Allowed Sandy Hook to Happen and Did Nothing.'”)

“Any metal file at the nearest hardware store will eliminate the serial numbers. Attempting to justify yourself by inserting criminals into the question is a nonstarter. They can steal your gun.” 

I responded to Bill’s comment,

“Bill, Pleeeeeeeaze, law-abiding citizens are NOT criminals. Why do you and the left insist in treating them as such? I cannot follow your logic. Thieves and other criminals can steal my car and erase the VIN number and do a lot of damage with it... What does that prove?

“Criminals, especially gang-bangers and those that commit any crime using a gun and the violence they cause in the large, usually Democrat-controlled cities - run wild.

“Like the borders, enforce the laws on the books and go after the crooks first before you legislate comprehensive immigration (read that amnesty for illegal aliens) or before you legislate comprehensive gun control (read that gun confiscation from law-abiding citizens) ...”

Guns are not the problem. Criminals, the mentally ill, the gang bangers, and illegal aliens with guns are the problem. Instead of legislation restricting law-abiding citizens in any way, better legislation would be to register any criminal who commits a crime or who carries a gun without having a permit when arrested. Violators would be placed on a registry of gun offenders like sex offenders. This will alert the public of potential danger as well as the police who can monitor those who potentially are more likely to have and to misuse a firearm.

The progressive left continues to hound the wrong people - the law-abiding citizen. Go after the criminal element. Why create the likelihood of more crimes being committed by not allowing the law-abiding citizen to arm themselves in their homes with whatever weapons they choose? To restrict or disarm the law-abiding citizen in any way is a downright foolish and dangerous policy.

Battling Over Moses and the Ten Commandments 


The ACLU, Freedom from Religion, and the People for the American Way are all leftist groups determined to purge America of every vestige of Biblical and Christian expression and morality. Moses was a leader of the Jewish nation when God gave him the Ten Commandments. The mere placement of the time-honored and proven guidelines in any public venue is the reason they are a prime target of the Leftists bent on transforming America into a Socialist utopia. Why? The Ten Commandments embody the antithesis of the Leftist Agenda. For example:

· “Thou shalt not murder.” Abortion is a direct violation of God’s command. Abortion is the most sacred sacrament of the feminists and leftists of every sort.

· “Thou shalt not steal” contradicts the socialist wealth distribution of our President and his treasonous Party.

· “Thou shalt have no other gods before Me.” Wow, that is a big one. Greed, Lust, Narcissism, are all gods to many Americans.

· “You shall not commit adultery.” Sexual freedom, free love is another cornerstone of the leftist philosophy…

This week the Supreme Court of the United States is scheduled to hear arguments for fraudulent same-sex ‘marriage’ against the wishes of the voters of California’s Proposition 8, and for the repeal of Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA). This is another major plank of the left’s agenda and the driving issue of those who want to mainstream homosexual behavior and lifestyle. Clearly Moses in the first five books of the Judeo-Christian bible documented God’s disapproval of all sexual relationships except for that found in man-woman monogamous marriage.

Guns and Moses, if the Left could do away with both, they could go a long way in advancing their diabolical agenda and further damage the foundations of this once great God-blessed nation. Let’s hope and pray that the SCOTUS and people of the United States will resist the forces of evil in the battles against guns and Moses that loom large this year…

SCOTUS: Which will it be, Quality Marriage or (Fraudulent Same-Sex) 'Marriage' Equality?

Repealing Proposition 8 and DOMA by the Supreme Court, which begins to hear oral arguments tomorrow, will not promote 'marriage equality.' It will destroy it. Marriage, its integrity and its sacredness, is at risk.

This week the Supreme Court is scheduled to hear arguments for fraudulent same-sex ‘marriage’ against the wishes of the voters of California’s Proposition 8, and for the repeal of the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA). Repeal of either issue would only further a major destructive plank of the left’s agenda, which is a driving issue of those who want to mainstream homosexual behavior and lifestyle. Homosexual behavior remains unhealthy, unnatural, immoral, and primarily a behavioral choice.

Clearly Moses in the first five books of the Judeo-Christian Bible documented God’s disapproval of all sexual relationships outside the bounds of one man - one woman monogamous marriage including adultery, fornication, homosexuality, all immorality. Our nation was founded on Judeo-Christian values and principles. Violation of these principles will weaken the very fabric of our nation, the family (man, woman and children) unit. God cannot and will not continue to bless a nation that forsakes Him and His guiding principles. Absolutely, the stakes are enormous for true quality marriage and for America!

Not only will fraudulent same-sex ‘marriage’ undermine the institution of marriage, it will also undermine our society. I care about America continuing to become further morally bankrupt by not only accepting homosexuality as normal, natural, healthy lifestyle choice but embracing and promoting it in the government indoctrination centers, our godless secular humanistic dominated schools. Homosexual behavior is unnatural, unhealthy, abnormal and immoral. Like the practice of abortion, it may be legal but it is still morally reprehensible to kill a developing human being. SCOTUS was tragically wrong in the Roe v. Wade case, God willing, they’ll make the right decision in the Prop 8 and DOMA cases.

The family unit – mother, father, and children - was designed to provide the optimum opportunity for a child to develop and grow to their full potential. There is no substitute for the intact natural family. Usually single parents or homosexual and lesbian couples cannot provide the environment to properly nourish children as nature intended. That is one of the biggest arguments against same-sex ‘marriage’.

Homosexuals and lesbians have the same right to marry individuals of the opposite sex as all Americans do. However, they just can’t marry the same sex. To say they cannot marry is wrong. Marriage is intended ONLY for male and female relationships. It is a standard that has worked for thousands of years.

Not allowing same-sex partners special privileges is not discrimination, like discrimination against blacks, women, the disabled or the aged. Why? Because homosexuality is predominately a behavioral choice, whereas being black, being female, being disabled, or being old is unchangeable. People can change their behavior; they can’t change their skin color… You insult blacks when you claim it is discrimination not to allow homosexuals to have special privileges or to be treated differently than any other people.

Islamic “Justice”

Islamic Justice in the Maldives?

The following is why the political, religious, and militaristic system, which is Islam, should be feared and rejected, not embraced by the American public or any rational person or government of Earth for that matter! I first saw the link on twitter (hat tip goes to @SavedGirl316). You can see the original story, which was posted on Pam Geller’s website, Atlas Shrugged, here.

"Sharia law: 15-year-old girl's stepdad raped her for years, murdered her baby; Islamic court sentences her to flogging for “sex outside marriage.”"

 
As for America, we are quickly become secularized thanks to the hard work and effort of secular humanists and those on the Left that loath Christianity, morality and the values that once made the US exceptional! We are becoming numb to the twin dangers of Communism and Islamism.
 
Barack Obama and his ‘comrades in harm’ on the left want to transform America into a socialist utopia like the Soviet Union, which is a grave mistake.
 
America is a mere remnant of the nation George Washington, Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson founded and others built. The forces of evil have and continue to act to corrupt America. Abortion, Homosexuality, Socialism, and Immorality and Violence in movies are now in condoned and held in higher esteem and are deemed more important than Life, Liberty, Morality, Free Enterprise, and Virtue.

In America, is a penny saved still a penny earned?


A penny saved is a penny earned - Benjamin Franklin quote


"A penny saved is a penny earned," the essence of the original proverb according to one source means, “Money that you save is more valuable than money that you spend right away. It is good to save money.” This truism or truth, like traditional man-woman marriage, which has stood the test of time, is under attack today in America.

However, according to a tweet I read this morning by @DavidJones740, that reliable truth may now be passé. President Barack Obama and his leftist cohorts are succeeding in transforming America. David Jones tweeted that the above idiom no longer fits here in America; it has morphed  into something different, it has been replaced, it has transformed into the following reality:



“A penny saved is no longer a penny earned. It is a government oversight.”



The government obviously accepts this new interpretation. It acts as if it is starved for more taxes, for more revenue so it can redistribute America’s wealth as it sees fit. The government and those in power need additional resources in order to continue to reward its supporters, crony capitalists, and the Low Information Voters so critical to maintaining its power.

All money, all rights belong to the state, the government. It is the sole diviner or distributor of rights, phones, food stamps, and other bennies. Many of its citizens also have deliberately or ignorantly also accepted it. They have sold their soul, not to the company store because it has been closed, but to their new idol or god, the government leviathan.

I was so impressed with the profound truth found in the tweet this morning that I posted it on my favorite on-line forum, Cleveland.com Politics Forum this morning. It was removed from the forum within an hour! Why? Did it offend those protectors of the liberal agenda? Was some other reader offended by this truth? I believe that that statement was censored by some liberal or truth-denier.

What a shame, because that simple tweet expressed so well a powerful truth. The fact that truths like this and even certain news items that may shed a bad light on the Leftist Agenda are getting ignored, unreported, or censured is why the number of Low Information Voters is growing. The Low Information Voter is being nurtured by the powers on the Left including the main stream media and other destroyers of American values. That is exactly why I re-posted it here on AGoodChoice…! The truth needs to get out.
