James Dobson Sues Obama Administration

Posted on December 12, 2013 in Public Policy, Religious Freedom by

ADFMedia reports: Alliance Defending Freedom attorneys filed a federal lawsuit Tuesday against the Obama administration on behalf of Dr. James Dobson and his “Family Talk” radio show and ministry, a Christian non-profit organization that is currently subject to Obamacare’s abortion pill mandate.

The lawsuit challenges the legality and constitutionality of the mandate, which requires religious employers to provide insurance coverage for abortifacients, sterilization, and contraception to employees regardless of religious or moral objections. Dobson and Family Talk object specifically to providing coverage for abortion drugs and devices.

“Our ministry believes in living out the religious convictions we hold to and talk about on the air,” added Dobson, Family Talk’s founder and president. “As Americans, we should all be free to live according to our faith and to honor God in our work. The Constitution protects that freedom so that the government cannot force anyone to act against his or her sincerely held religious beliefs. But the mandate ignores that and leaves us with a choice no American should have to make: comply and abandon your religious freedom, or resist and be fined for your faith.”

“Can My Transgender Girlfriend Get Me Pregnant?”

Posted on December 12, 2013 in Sexuality by

LifeSiteNews.com shared this: “Planned Parenthood has posted a response on its Tumblr account to a reader who asked, ‘Can my trans[gender] girlfriend get me pregnant?’ Someone who, understandably, wanted to remain anonymous wrote, ‘My girlfriend is trans and has been doing hormone replacement therapy for about a year. About how likely is it that she can still get me pregnant?’ Yes, a biological female apparently having heterosexual intercourse with a biological male asked if sex still causes pregnancy. A Planned Parenthood spokesperson named ‘Mylanie’ responded with the perplexing statement, ‘anytime your girlfriend’s semen…gets into your vagina or onto your vulva, you’re at risk for pregnancy.'”

How sad is it that sexuality has been so defamed and maligned that we have to answer questions like this? This young person has been so conditioned to see sexuality as just another “customizeable” aspect to a persons life that she doesn’t think it strange to be in a sexual relationship with a person so confused about his own sexuality that he is trying to become a female.

Furthermore, the girl in question is obviously having her own sexuality issues considering she is in a relationship with a biological male transitioning to a female; which makes her…homosexual?

Lastly, exactly how effective is all that explicit sex education in the public schools if this young woman doesn’t know that sex between a man and woman carries the risk of pregnancy?

Welcome to the 21st century. In this “brave new world” males try to become female, females engage in sexual relationships with trans females, and neither of them can figure out what causes pregnancy. But don’t worry, Planned Parenthood has lots of brochures to make sure they enjoy sex, have lots of condoms(?), and just in case those two crazy kids – one or both – end up pregnant help with abortions services. Ladies and gentlemen, the future of America. Click here for original article.

Homosexual Tyranny Will Destroy Religious Liberty

Posted on December 12, 2013 in Religious Freedom by

Writing at LifeSiteNews.com, Steve Jalsevac has penned what I would call a wake-up call to people regarding the “growing…very real tyranny” of activist homosexuals in America. In particular he centers on how homosexuals are already influencing the Catholic Church while seemingly ignorant or indifferent leaders do nothing.

Jalsevac wonders out loud where Catholic leaders were when Christian business owners were being persecuted through prosecution for simply adhering to a biblical definition of sexuality and marriage. He laments, “All I can recall, from the Catholics and Anglicans at least, was the usual, deadly, shameful soul and spirit killing silence that seems to happen all over the developed world on this issue.”

While Jalsevac directs his concern toward the Catholic Church, and rightly so, I would direct concern to every church in the United States that continues to confess the biblical definition of sexuality and marriage. As recent headlines have proven, the environment is right and activists are poised to seek not just recognition but full acceptance for their lifestyle from society; including the church.

UPDATE: EU Decides Abortion in NOT a Human Right!

Posted on December 11, 2013 in Life, Public Policy by

The European Parliament will vote Tuesday on a report, known as the Estrela Report, which will decide whether or not abortion is a “human right.” This is important first because it is absurd to think that abortion is a human right. This is important secondly because this vote will no doubt have consequences for America.

As Americans continue to recognize that life should be defended from conception to natural death, the abortion industry grows desperate. Clinics are closing at unprecedented rates, pro-life laws are being passed by states like never before, and most Americans now identify as pro-life than in the last 40 years. This spells trouble for the money making machine of the abortion industry.

A vote, such as the one taking place tomorrow, will have a ripple effect on the United States. Should the European Parliament find a “human right” to abortion, we can be sure the most pro-abortion president in U.S. history and his administration will seek to further push their pro-abortion agenda on us. However, if the vote defends life, we can expect an increased surge in the protection of life here in the states.

Government Demands Christians Violate Religious Convictions

Posted on December 11, 2013 in Public Policy, Religious Freedom by

In what can only be described as an appalling verdict, a federal judge has ordered a Colorado baker to violate his Christian convictions and serve cakes to homosexual couples.

Jack Phillips is the owner of Masterpiece Cake shop in Colorado. Last year a gay couple asked him to prepare a cake for them so they could celebrate their recent “marriage” in Massachusetts. Jack told the couple he could not serve them because doing so would violate his religious convictions. The couple, with the help of the ACLU, filed a discrimination lawsuit against Jack.

Now, a judge has told Jack that he must serve homosexuals or his business will face penalties.

Rick Warren Defines Tolerance for Piers Morgan

Posted on December 10, 2013 in Marriage, Sexuality by

The video below comes from Piers Morgans show on CNN during an interview with Pastor Rick Warren. In this clip, Warren defines tolerance for Morgan. Morgan clearly holds to the modern day, false definition of tolerance which says all views are equally valid. Warren helps Morgan by correctly defining tolerance and sharing his views on marriage.

I Don’t Get It. Why Hate On Home Schoolers?

Posted on December 10, 2013 in Religious Freedom by

It doesn’t make any sense.

I’ve tried to figure out why there is a deliberate persecution of home school families and I cannot figure it out. This persecution is taking place worldwide as governments crack down on home schooling globally. And for other countries it might make perfect sense. But it’s nothing short of baffling to figure out why the American government under Attorney General Eric Holder, presumably with consent from the president, would refuse to admit the right of parents to school their children.

At a time when the American education system is in turmoil; declining global competitiveness, overcrowded classrooms, high dropout rates, moral decline further facilitated by things like Common Core. One would think that our government and education system would welcome parents that want to teach their kids at home.

Is It Important to Keep Christ in Christmas in Public?

Posted on December 9, 2013 in Religious Freedom by

The two words “in public?” at the end of the headline are critical. Certainly every Christian should endeavor to keep Christ in Christmas in their home privately, and in their church. But what about in public? Is it still important to keep Christ in Christmas in the public sector or is saying “Happy holidays” and calling it a “Holiday Tree’ acceptable?

Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF) has worked tirelessly to ensure the rights of people wanting to celebrate Christmas are protected. Each year people put up trees, nativity scenes, and exchange gifts. And each year special interest groups sue to remove all mentions of God from public sight. Such efforts include threatening schools with lawsuits if they allow any traditional Christmas carols, seeking to remove nativity scenes from public property, and keeping any religious themed floats out of parades.

Much confusion abounds concerning what is legal and what is not for people in public, in the workplace, and in schools regarding celebrating Christmas. ADF made this comment in a recent article:

Atheists Celebrate the “True Meaning of Christmas”

Posted on December 8, 2013 in Religious Freedom by

A billboard in Manhattan’s Times Square has gone up asking the question “Who needs Christ during Christmas?” The answer, provided by the American Atheists is, “nobody.” Instead, the group shares their list of reasons for the season, which include: family, friends, the Rockettes, and mistletoe. American Atheists president, David Silverman commented:

“This season is a great time of year for a hundred reasons — none of them having to do with religion…This year, start a new tradition: Don’t go to church. You hate it, it’s boring; you probably only go because you feel guilty or obligated. Instead, spend more time with your family and friends — or volunteer. There are better uses of your time and money.”

I’ve previously said I believe it is critical for Christians to keep Christ at the center of Christianity in the face of efforts to secularize our society. This is one more evidence of the need to enjoy the festivities of the holidays while keeping Christ as the central focus and purpose for our celebration.
