For Free Speech, Give Up Your Tax Exempt Status

(Townhall)  When thinking of cruel and unusual punishment, we’ve grown accustomed to thinking of torture or similarly brutal treatment at the hands of police interrogators and/or agents of the State. But we would do ourselves a service by broadening our horizons a bit and considering the fact that a denial of our natural, God-given rights – even apart from any subsequent physical abuse – is both cruel and unusual.

Cruel, because it is tantamount to denying us a part of our humanity, and unusual, because denying someone a part of their own humanity is not the “usual” sort of thing we should be doing.

Yet it remains a fact that every Sunday, when pastors in America ascend the pulpit, they face the cruel and unusual prospect of exchanging their natural, God-given right to free speech for a government-ordained lexicon (if they want to keep their tax-exempt status).

Study finds marriage increases self-control, may reduce crime

(LifeSiteNews)  A new study has found that marriage can potentially help reduce crime because married people tend to develop significantly greater self-control.

“Self-control is one of the strongest predictors of differences between people in terms of their involvement in crime,” said Dr. Walter Forrest, Senior Lecturer in Criminology at Australia’s Monash University, in a press release from Monash University.

“Our study shows that improvements in a person’s level of self-control are related to changes in their involvement in crime over time. It also shows that marriage is a significant source of those improvements,” said Dr. Forrest.

Libraries push `erotic` children`s books

A St. Louis, Mo., chapter of Citizens Against Pornography is asking libraries to seek parental consent before making sexually explicit books available to teens, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported.

Parent Laura Kostial visited the Daniel Boone library with her 12-year-old daughter and described offerings as "shocking" and containing "erotic" messages.

Pastors Need to Get a Backbone

(WallBuilders Live!) Hope must come from the pulpits of America. Liberty must be preached! The church used to be the center of culture. People used to go to pastors for news and direction. This is what we need to see, again. Stand without apology for what should be a righteousness issue. Too often pastors worry that what they say will be in violation of their tax exemption status, instead of considering that what they say is the instruction that God commands be preached.

Facebook, Google, Apple Censoring Religious Speech?

(Christian Post)  The National Religious Broadcasters (NRB) group sounded the alarm Thursday about new media outlets such as Facebook, Google and Apple, which they say have written policies that violate the fundamental rules of free expression, particularly concerning religious free speech.

The NRB released a report at the National Press Club Thursday analyzing the various content policies of social networking websites. What they found was disturbing: new media platforms Facebook, Apple, Comcast, AT&T and Google have adopted policies to censor lawful viewpoints expressing Christian views or controversial ideas on “hot button issues.” Some platforms, such as Apple’s iTunes App Store and Google’s search engine, have already started to use those policies to remove orthodox Christian viewpoints considered “offensive” or too controversial.

The code cites "churches, temples, synagogues, monasteries, religious retreats, and other places of religious worship and other fraternal and community service organizations."

(LifeNews) The next 40 Days for Life pro-life prayer campaign starts next week and it is the biggest ever, according to Shawn Carney, the national director of the event that has become an inspiring grassroots pro-life phenomenon.

When the last campaign ended in the Spring, pro-life advocates had gathered at 247 locations across the country and around the world and organizers said, at the time, they had confirmations of 483 unborn children whose lives were spared because of the campaign at abortion centers. That made the number of babies who had not become victims of abortion reach a high of 4,082 — and it has gone up since.

Pro-`gay` groups take `pressure tactics` to PayPal

Most of the groups are U.S.-based. PayPal reportedly has responded, saying it could not comment on individual accounts and must take "the rights of free speech and freedom of religion" into account.

One of the groups singled out by the effort is Illinois-based Americans for Truth About Homosexuality (AFTAH). Founder Peter LaBarbera refers to it as "homofascism in action," as it asks people to stop financially supporting Christian groups, which the homosexual activists refer to as "hate groups."

The ACLU -No friend of children

(OneNewsNow/Robert Knight) If you were the devil, what would be your most important mission, other than inventing false religions? It would be to corrupt innocent children.

I`d start by kicking God out of the public schools and excising from textbooks the truth about America`s deeply Christian heritage. I`d get rid of glaringly obvious ties between Christianity and the Founders` vision of unalienable rights and limited government. Children would be indoctrinated to think of themselves as cosmic accidents of random mutation and survival of the fittest, not precious beings with eternal souls created in the image of God. The result would be an effectively atheistic system of moral relativism.

In other words, it’s not an ordered freedom based on the sound footing of natural law, but an abstract freedom based on the whims and desires of fickle men and women who have concurred with the maxim that “freedom’s just another word for nothing left to lose.”

ACLJ Defends Ban on Television Indecency in Supreme Court Filing

(PRNewswire-USNewswire) The American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ) today filed a friend-of-the-court brief in the U.S. Supreme Court defending the ability of government authorities to outlaw public indecency, whether in person or on broadcast TV.

"Televisions are found in almost every home," said ACLJ Chief Counsel Jay Sekulow. "It may be that TV stations would prefer to cross the lines of decency in a misguided effort to boost ratings and bolster their profits. But to do so in prime time means sacrificing the protection of children – and adults – from gratuitous assaults on their sensibilities. The First Amendment right to free speech does not include indecent exposure in public settings like this."

Study: Unborn Babies Can Differentiate Touch, Pain in Womb

(LifeNews) A new study from England finds unborn children have the capacity to differentiate touch from pain in the womb and they are able to do so as early as 28-35 weeks into pregnancy. Other studies have shown unborn children can experience pain much earlier.

Conducted by researchers at the University College London, the study found unborn children can feel pain around the 35th week of pregnancy. The scientists determine this by using EEG to record brain activity in response to pain and comparing the responses from a positive touch versus a painful prick in the foot.

In our appeal to the federal Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals following an atrocious decision against traditional marriage in the federal district court, the three-member panel of judges from the Ninth Circuit asked California’s highest court to issue its opinion on whether an initiative’s proponents may defend it in a court of law.

Why Churches Must Speak Out to Repeal Homosexual Indoctrination Law (SB 48)

(Pacific Justice Institute) SB 48 is a new law which mandates that homosexual and transvestite role models be taught to all California public school children at all grade levels in history and sociology classes. This means, for instance, that 4th graders will be taught homosexual role models in California history instruction. But why should a church care? Specifically, why should a church allow signatures to be gathered to put the potential repeal of this law on the ballot? Here are five reasons why:

1)      It Matters to God: Christ once said that it is better for a millstone to be tied around a man`s neck and thrown into the sea than to cause a little child to stumble. (Matthew 18:6). Would Christ consider indoctrinating every child in California public schools down to the kindergarten level to embrace a sexual life style and orientation such as homosexuality as "stumbling"? The resulting spiritual, mental and physical death to occur to countless numbers of children because of such indoctrination is surely a high priority to Christ, and should be to His church.

 

2)      Complacency is not acceptable to God: Leviticus 5:1 tells us if we are called to testify about something we have seen and we know about, it is sinful to refuse to testify (NLT). God comes down against not only those who sin, but also those who stand by and say nothing. Can we honestly think for one moment that God will excuse the implicit acceptance of such child destroying instruction mandated by SB 48? Will a church`s refusal to even allow a petition to repeal it to be signed on church premises be understood by God to be anything less than acceptance of what will happen to thousands of children if this becomes law?

 

3)      A church`s testimony will be damaged: It has long been understood that a church`s testimony of the love of Christ is evidenced by their action. Put another way, a church that is truly filled with the love of Christ is going to care about people (including children) outside its walls. And a church that truly cares about children outside its walls cannot be silent about something so harmful and destructive to so many children throughout California, and eventually beyond California through the newly revised textbooks used by other states as well.

 

4)      Uncertainty about the outcome does not justify disobedience: Some may say, "Well I don`t think we`ll likely prevail in the end anyway so I won`t get involved." Logistics aside, since when was certainty of an outcome ever a valid replaced for obedience to God? We can only be thankful that Paul never allowed his circumstances or projected immediate results to replace his calling to "fight the good fight, finish the course, to keep the faith." For the question for the Christian`s testimony is never whether they changed the world, but rather were they obedient to do what the love of Christ compelled them to do to hopefully change the world. The test is not the certainty of results, but the clarity of the mission of our true testimony as Christians filled with the love of Christ.

 

5)      Churches will suffer harm: As every child is taught that acceptance of homosexual role models in history is a good thing for society, they will inherently be also taught that those who do not embrace such role models are wrong or bad for society.   Such thinking will not only make it more difficult for the church to reach out to such children for evangelism, but it will result in lower church attendance and lower tithes when they become adults. In fact, the attitude of such future voters toward laws challenging churches discriminating based upon sexual orientation, or continued housing allowances for ministers, will undoubtedly be adverse. So if a church is not motivated by Christ`s mandate, the judgment of God for complacency or the value of a church`s testimony, then may be at least a church`s (and pastor`s) own welfare is enough to compel action to repeal SB 48.

 

The Apostle Paul, in Galatians 1:10, writes that if he were still trying to please people he would not be a servant of Christ. We cannot be both pleasers of man and pleasers of God.   With the stakes so high for so many children, whom will your church choose to please? We have all song the song to our little ones in Sunday school, "Jesus Loves the Little Children." Yet the question remains whether the churches` actions will vindicate or contradict those long taught lyrics.

But one rogue wing of the pro-life movement sees no reason to celebrate: the budding “personhood movement,” which wants to turn abortion into homicide by methodically amending state constitutions to define conception as the beginning of a person’s life.

Prop. 8 Pre-Hearing Legal Update

(ProtectMarriage.com) On Tuesday, our Legal Defense Team will appear before the California Supreme Court and make the case that we have “legal standing” to defend the People’s vote for Prop 8 against legal challenges, since “the public officials charged with that duty refuse to do so.”

Should the State Supreme Court affirm our standing -- as we expect -- the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals will then resume its consideration of our appeal of former federal Judge Vaughn Walker’s decision declaring Proposition 8 and traditional marriage itself “unconstitutional.”

So I encourage you to watch the hearing for yourself on Tuesday at 10 a.m., as it will be broadcast live on stateside television via the California Channel.  Or you can watch the hearing in real time on the internet via LIVE Webcast at http://www.calchannel.com/channel/live/.

How to defend your children against pro-gay lessons in the classroom

(LifeSiteNews)  As young people across North America head back to school next week parents need to attend to more than just making sure the back-to-school clothes and utensils are in place.  There is an unprecedented attack on morals coming from the school.

Particularly in the area of sexuality, so-called public morality has moved outside of the realm of life-and-family-affirming principles to such an extent that a veritable anti-morality is being fed to our children.  And this year there is a concerted effort to restrict parents from countering the efforts of the school to promote this anti-morality.

Rep. Hunter seeks to protect straight troops’ rights

(Army Times)  A California congressman strongly opposed to allowing gays to serve openly in the military is drafting legislation to protect the rights of straight service members who object to the presence of gays.

The draft bill prepared by Rep. Duncan Hunter, R-Calif., an Iraq and Afghanistan veteran who served as a Marine Corps officer before being elected to Congress, does not prevent repeal of the military’s “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy by the end of September, but it would require the services to “ensure that a member of the Armed Forces under their jurisdiction is not pressured to approve of another person’s sexual conduct if that sexual conduct is contrary to the personal principles of the member.”

Essentially, this would mean that military people have to accept the presence of gays in the military but they would not have to like it, said an aide familiar with the legislation.

Why Are We Surprised With the Push for `Pedophile Rights`

(Townhall) Many Americans have been shocked by reports about a recent pro-pedophilia conference in Baltimore in which psychiatrists and other mental health professionals, representing institutions like Harvard and Johns Hopkins, sought to present pedophilia in a sympathetic and even positive light. But why should this surprise us?

The Transhumanism Trap: Using Technology to Perfect the Human Race

(LifeNews) If you do not know what transhumanism is let alone know that it has a logical trap into which the average person is likely to fall, don’t worry.  Most people don’t.   Transhumanism is a movement that wants to use technology to go beyond curing or preventing disease or disability.

Transhumanists hunger for technology that will take an otherwise healthy individual and enhance him or her beyond normal human ability.  Transhumanism seeks not just to cure disease but to change the very nature of man.  To make him more than human, even immortal, with whatever means are available, whether it is with nanotechnology, artificial limbs, artificial intelligence, or genetic enhancement.  Transhumanism is a insidious philosophy because it rejects the nature of humanity and our natural limitations.  Rejecting the nature of man, it also rejects the inherent dignity of every human person in the process.

Referendum filed to overturn California congressional maps

(Sacramento Bee)  A referendum has been filed to overturn the new congressional districts created by the California Citizens Redistricting Commission, the attorney general`s office reported today.

The effort joins one already under way to undo the maps the commission drew for state Senate districts.

Filing the referendum with the attorney general is the first step in the process that ultimately requires the collection of 504,760 valid voter signatures within about three months to halt implementation of the maps until voters decide their fate on the June 2012 ballot. If the referendum qualifies for the ballot, the state Supreme Court would draw new maps or decide which maps to use in the upcoming political races.

Releasing Calif. Gay Marriage Trial Video Would Be `Act of Hostility,` Says Group

(Christian Post)  While both sides of California’s same-sex marriage debate await a federal judge’s decision on whether to release the videotapes of the Proposition 8 trial held in 2010, the American Family Association (AFA) says making the tapes public would be an act of hostility.

On Monday, supporters of traditional marriage argued that Judge Vaughn R. Walker, who presided over the Prop. 8 case, promised during the hearings to keep the footage sealed and his decision should not be reversed.

Schools scratch graphic reading requirements

(OneNewsNow)  A New Jersey school district has apologized to parents and deleted from its required summer reading list books that graphically describe homosexual and lesbian sex encounters.

Norwegian Wood and Tweak: Growing up on Methamphetamines were on a required reading list for high school students in the Monroe Township School District. The former includes a story of lesbian sex between a 31-year-old woman and a 13-year-old girl, and the latter depicts drug usage and a homosexual orgy.

"Homosexual activists have been pushing for inclusion of more material with sort of homosexual themes, and they tend not to be very squeamish about very explicit sexual material being included in that," reports Peter Sprigg of the Family Research Council (FRC).

What Cloning Advocates Don’t Say About Human Cloning

(LifeNews)  Discussing cloning in animals is easy.  No one seems to have a problem accurately describing the process of cloning, somatic cell nuclear transfer or SCNT, for a sheep or a cow.

(SCNT is the process used to create Dolly the sheep.  In SCNT, the nucleus of an egg is removed.  The egg’s nucleus is replaced with a nucleus of a somatic cell, like a skin cell, from an adult organism.  The egg with a new set of DNA is zapped into thinking it has been fertilized and a cloned embryo is formed.)  In fact, I have never seen a cloning account for an animal that wasn’t accurate.  For example, this description by Popular Science on plans to use SCNT with eggs from spayed domestic cats to clone the endangered Scottish wildcat.  This account of SCNT clearly states that it would produce a wildcat embryo...

Who Are the Real Gay Bigots and Bullies

George Orwell said, “In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act.” When you tell the truth about homosexuality today, you can be sure that the central tools of deceit—name-calling and bullying—will be unleashed.

I recently was having a respectful conversation with a homosexual activist, but after I made a point he couldn’t answer he called me a “bigot.”

I asked, “What’s your definition of bigotry?”

He said, “Fear and intolerance.”
