Houston mayor withdraws demand for sermons

The Constitution assumed local control of most government functions, not the current centralized system.

Today, Annise Parker, Mayor of Houston, Texas, abruptly withdrew her demand that five area pastors turn their sermons over to a judge. She gave reasons for withdrawing that sound more political than legal.

Can you explain America?

Here is the price of freedom and an answer to tyranny

Picture this: You’re going to be meeting with George Washington, John Adams, Thomas Jefferson and Benjamin Franklin. They want to know what has happened to America. What will you say?

Same-sex marriage: new block?

The Constitution assumed local control of most government functions, not the current centralized system.

Earlier this month, the U.S. Supreme Court let stand without comment several rulings by different Circuit Courts of Appeals. Result: same-sex marriage now is the law in up to 33 States. Everyone, including de facto President Barack Obama, assumed same-sex marriage would soon be the rule across the land. But a federal judge in Puerto Rico just threw up another roadblock. This could set up a “circuit split” to force the Court to rule even faster than it planned.

Thank you, Houston

The Constitution assumed local control of most government functions, not the current centralized system.

Recently the town council of Houston added its name to a long list of constitutional bullies. It recently attempted to infringe upon its citizens 1st Amendment rights by conducting a witch hunt against Houston’s churches in an attempt to find something that will justify removing their tax exempt status. But its actions may have proven that the proverbial last straw does actually exist when it comes to assaults against our rights to worship freely. Not only have Houston’s churches refused to submit to politically correct bullies; they have done what churches around the country should have been doing since 1954. When Lyndon B. Johnson subversively attached the Johnson Amendment to a piece of IRS legislation and silenced the political voice of the churches, the churches remained silent. But not this time. This time Houston may have gone too far and forced the churches to finally take a stand. And for that, we thank you, Houston!

Houston First Amendment fight

The Constitution assumed local control of most government functions, not the current centralized system.

The Mayor of Houston, Texas finally attacked the First Amendment, in several ways, as never before. In one measure she threatened at least four and maybe five of its six parts. Furthermore, she did it as part of a pending lawsuit. So this case will work its way through the courts. Those same courts will now test their own fidelity to the Constitution, and to the oath all judges take to uphold it.

Crossless love

Jesus Christ showed the ultimate love.

 

Freedom has a taste to those who fight and almost die, that the protected will never know.

Satan’s 1st Amendment twist

The Constitution assumed local control of most government functions, not the current centralized system.

Our Founders’ experience with a government that had exceeded its logical, moral, and spiritual authority greatly influenced the Constitution they would eventually design. In our Declaration of Independence they expressed their reasons for declaring their independence from tyranny along with their belief that government’s primary role was to protect our God-given rights. Our Constitution and form of government was based on those basic beliefs about what government should be and how it should be limited in order to protect our God-given right of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Immediately after ratification of the Constitution, our Founders agreed that they needed to amend the Constitution in order to protect our rights as citizens in addition to limiting government. And so the first 10 Amendments that are referred to as our Bill of Rights were born. The name The Bill of Rights appropriately became the reference for these first 10 amendments because that’s what they were: amendments to protect our rights as distinguished from the Constitution that was designed to limit government.

Wards of the state: lab rats?

Lab rat. Why do we treat wards of the state like this?

In the past two years, the child-protective service agencies of three states have each tried to turn one or two children, having rare genetic disorders, into wards of the state. In every case, new doctors took over the children’s care and did not treat them appropriately. As shocking as these episodes are, this has happened before. Ten years ago a scandal broke involving other experiments on wards of the state. The case included a foster-care agency in New York City, fifty children in their care, and thirteen phase-one trials of drugs to treat HIV-AIDS. Several child advocates and professors of ethics thought they’d stopped the practice. They haven’t. The experimenters learned from that case and changed tactics. Until more child advocates connect such cases, such abuses will happen again. And again, and again, and again.

Permission to obey God?

Bradlee Dean takes on Rachel Maddow and MSNBC--now in c ourt.

 

Serious religion, under its various denominations (Lutherans, Baptists, Wesleyans, Catholics etc … ) is not only tolerated, but respected and practiced. Atheism is unknown. …

Benjamin Franklin

Sometimes the press will describe us as monitoring hate crimes and so on. … I want to say plainly that our aim in life is to destroy these groups, to completely destroy them.

Mark Potok, director of intelligence at the Southern Poverty Law Center

I know that the atheists, communists and revisionists are working overtime trying to convince you that your forefathers were just like them, but let me tell you friends, nothing could be further from the truth!

Genetic research abuse?

Lab rat. Why do we treat wards of the state like this?

Herr Doktor Mengele, rufen Sie Ihren Anwalt! Jemand plagiieren Ihre Ideen. No, we’re not trying to invoke Josef Mengele from beyond the grave. But if he ever worried about scientific plagiarism against himself, he might want to get legal advice. CNAV today received a lead on what might be an abuse of power to dwarf anything Josef Mengele or his superiors did. It involves legally kidnapping children with rare genetic diseases to do genetic research on them without parental consent. And whether these specific allegations are true or not, someone ought to change the law that lets this happen, and fast.
