This is very long, so I’ll just post the link, but this is well worth the time it takes to read it. Give some thought to it…the possibilities of things to come…
Then get involved. First of all….pray. God can change the hearts of our leaders through prayer. And get involved politically. You don’t have to go to rallies…but when you see ungodly things happening, don’t just lie down and take it.
As part of his “outreach” to the faith community, Barack Obama spent thousands in advertising on Christian radio stations, including an investment with our good friends at Bott Radio Network (BRN). Since the FCC requires that Bott accept paid advertising from “all bona fide candidates” for federal office, BRN complied. But instead of allowing Obama’s insincerity on family values to go unchecked, the network aired its own announcements contrasting the candidate’s claims with his own anti-life, anti-faith record. In a letter to FRC, BRN wrote, “While we are required to air his paid advertising, we are not required to keep his money. We decided to ‘spread his wealth around’ by donating the proceeds from his advertising in those markets to pro-life organizations and crisis pregnancy centers which his policies would oppose.” We salute the Bott network for turning a play for votes into real help for women and their unborn children.
Left Protests the Church’s Winning Ways
Members of the radical “No on 8” campaign in California have quickly turned their disappointment over the homosexual marriage ban into rabid hostility. Protestors have flooded the streets in Los Angeles with their sights set on the Mormon Church, railing against its leaders for their powerful role in protecting marriage. Together with allies in the Catholic and Protestant churches, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS) was one of the main ingredients in Proposition 8’s success. The Mormon Church’s donations, estimated at roughly $22 million, fueled the hundreds of ad placements across the state that ultimately tipped the scales in the amendment’s favor. Yesterday, 2,000 homosexual activists vilified the church, huddling outside the gate of an L.A. temple with profane signs and rainbow flags. Today, another march is scheduled for Temple Square in Salt Lake City, but the Church’s leadership has no regrets about its involvement. In a statement, Elder Clayton said, “We believe it’s a moral issue, and we reserve the right to speak out on moral issues.” At LDS headquarters in Utah, leaders called for a ceasefire with gay activists and “goodwill” on both sides. Unfortunately, that message has yet to stick with the “No on 8” crowd, which has lashed out with unprecedented aggression against the faith community. Apart from the attacks on the LDS church (including ugly ads that depict Mormon missionaries invading the home of a lesbian couple and tearing up their marriage certificate), churches like Jack Hibbs’ Calvary Chapel at Chino Hills have been spray-painted, cars vandalized, and police have confirmed at least two reports of physical assault. Once again, the Left is proving its unwillingness to practice the very “tolerance” they preach. FRC is proud of the example that the interfaith community has set on marriage. If the Prop 8 outcome is any indication, homosexuals could stand to learn a thing or two from the church on civility.
I had another post ready for today, and I may add it later. But I wanted everybody to see this.
Most of you who read my posts, hate abortion. But some strangers do come to read. This video is an education for all…even those who already hate abortion. This is not for the faint of heart, though. You’ve been warned.
Dan 12:10……Many will be purified, made spotless and refined, but the wicked will continue to be wicked. None of the wicked will understand, but those who are wise will understand. NIV
