Christian Activist Foresees Uphill Marriage Protection Battle in Maine

Monday, November 28th, 2005

This needs to be prayed about…Hard.

(AgapePress) – A spokesman for the Christian Civic League of Maine (CCLM) says the recent rejection of pro-family values by a majority of Maine voters indicates a spiritual void in the state. The voters there said no to a “people’s veto” that would have nullified a bill passed by the legislature giving special rights to homosexuals.
Maine voters had rejected special rights for homosexuals in 1998. However, pro-homosexual activists are celebrating across the state today, after citizens recently opted not to use a people’s veto to repeal the bill pushed by the state’s liberal governor and legislature — a measure conferring special rights on gays and lesbians.
CCLM legislative liaison Tim Russell believes the voters in his state need to be made aware that “Pandora has been let out of the box.” Concerned that this victory by the homosexual lobby will pave the way for the approval of same-sex marriage statewide, he asserts, “Clearly, we’re going to have to address the officials that we elect. We’re going to have to start to educate the Maine citizens.”
One of the first issues to be addressed, Russell contends, is the spiritual climate in the New England state. “We have throughout this campaign spoken God’s word, his truth, in love; and it’s been turned around and spouted back that we are bigots,” he says. “And clearly, scripture tells us that we can expect this.” The anti-family opposition has been so vicious, he notes, that pro-family voters have been accused of hate speech simply for wearing buttons supporting traditional marriage.
The CCLM spokesman concludes that, if there is to be any hope of shoring up traditional marriage against its attackers, pro-family forces are going to have to take political action. “We could never hope to pass a constitutional amendment defining marriage as a man and a woman in this state — and it must be done through the legislature in the state of Maine — until we change the House and the Senate here in the state — and, actually, the governorship,” he says.
Russell says Maine’s voters must get mobilized to get rid of legislators who continue to support reckless agendas promoting unhealthy, anti-family lifestyles. “We’ve got to get men and women who subscribe to traditional family values,” he asserts, “and clearly we have got to turn our attention back to scriptural values in God’s word.”

Foreign Office ‘unrelentingly pro-Palestinian’ says Israel

Monday, November 28th, 2005

I realize that the Israelis have done their fair share of things to annoy people. Look at how many times they got “spanked” in the Bible. But I have to wonder, when are they going to be able to quit bending over backwards, making all the concessions and also getting hurt the most while the palestinians do little or nothing to uphole their end of the bargain.
Where is the world outcry toward the palis? The silence is deafening.
Now check out yet another example of Israel getting “slapped” while the palis get off scott free.

Israel has reacted angrily to a confidential Foreign Office document accusing it of illegally expanding Jewish settlements and routing the West Bank barrier to prevent east Jerusalem from becoming the Palestinian capital.
Officials described the document, drafted for an EU foreign ministers meeting earlier this week, as “anti-Israeli” and said it was further evidence the Foreign Office is “unrelentingly pro-Palestinian”. Britain makes more formal protests to Israel over its actions in the occupied territories than any other country.
The document warns Israeli actions are jeopardising peace and risk radicalising Palestinians. It recommends several measures to resist the Israeli tactic, including politically symbolic actions such as moving meetings with Palestinian officials from Ramallah to east Jerusalem.
An Israeli foreign ministry spokesman, Mark Regev, said: “We would see that as problematic. There are agreements with the Palestinians where that isn’t supposed to happen. It would not be the actions of those who support Israel.”
An Israeli source said: “We are not in the slightest bit surprised that this should have come from the British. On the one hand they always say they understand Israel’s problems and want to be an intermediary and on the other they are accusing us and attempting to embarrass us. They cannot be trusted,” he said.
No 10 played down the document, saying it was “drawn up as part of the EU process, reflecting not just British views but the collective views of the head of missions in Jerusalem”. Although it was written by British diplomats at the UK’s consulate in east Jerusalem, one diplomat said “there are others who agree with it”.
Israeli officials contrast what they see as Foreign Office hostility with the views of some British ministers. In September the Middle East minister, Kim Howells, shocked UK diplomats when the former chair of Labour Friends of Israel told the Jerusalem Post that rocket and artillery attacks on the Gaza Strip were a “measured” and “proportionate” response to Palestinian mortar attacks on Israel.
At the time British diplomats were lodging complaints over dozens of attacks on Gaza that destroyed schools and homes and the use of sonic booms to intimidate Palestinian civilians.
The Jerusalem Post observed Mr Howells’ support for Israeli actions was only tempered by a note from an FO aide who reminded him to mention UK objections to the spread of Jewish settlements
.

In light of all the violations of agreement the palis have made, no one could blame (although they would do so anyway) the Israelis if they threw the palis out and reclaimed all of their (Israel’s) territory. I mean all of them, thrown out, that is. Every last one of them. Let their so called peace loving islamofacist neighbors find homes for them.

Charity cash for Palestinian poor was siphoned to suicide bombers

Monday, November 28th, 2005

And why does this not surprise me. (Hat tip LGF)

Millions of pounds donated by British and other European charities to help the Palestinian poor were unwittingly diverted to fund terror and support the families of suicide bombers, Israeli prosecutors claimed yesterday.
Ahmed Salatna, 43, a Hamas activist from the West Bank town of Jenin, was remanded in custody by a military court charged with distributing €9m (£6.2m) (over 10.5 million dollars U.S. -ed.) for such purposes over the past nine years. The recipients are alleged to have included the family of a young man who blew himself up at the Sbarro pizza restaurant in Jerusalem in August 2001, killing 15 people and wounding 107. Hamas and Islamic Jihad acknowledged responsibility.
The charge sheet names two British charities, Human Appeal International and Interpal. Human Appeal is a broadly based fundraising organisation, currently helping victims of the Pakistani earthquake. Interpal describes itself as “a non-political, non-profit-making charity that focuses solely on the provision of relief and development aid to the poor and needy of Palestine”. No one was available for comment at its London office yesterday. Other charities mentioned were the French CBST, the Italian ABSPT and the Al-Aqsa Foundation, which operates in Austria, Belgium, Denmark and Sweden.

And yet these peace loving islam palestinian organizations only help the poor, right?

Home Education Seen As Timely Solution to Failing Public Schools

Monday, November 28th, 2005

It is getting more and more tempting to bring teaching into the home. With the schools becoming more and more liberal (and immoral) in their teaching, parents are really starting to consider home schooling.

(AgapePress) – An effort to double the number of home school students in the United States is off and running, and already the response has been positive. E. Roy Moore, the man behind the launch of the “Homeschooling Family to Family” project, believes the time is right to push home education.
“Christian faith home schooling is America has come of age,” Moore says, “and it’s time now to get on offense and become more outreach- and evangelistic-oriented in our presentations.” He believes faith-based home schooling is an increasingly attractive option, especially since growing homosexual influence in public schools and the schools’ anti-parent policies regarding sex education and abortion are raising the anxiety level of many parents today.
Also, the home education advocate notes, failing standards of education, social engineering in the classroom, and drugs and violence on school campuses have led to a surge in home schooling in recent years. Meanwhile, he points out, home schooling has experienced tremendous changes, growing from its early days of being viewed with suspicion and skepticism by government and education officials to now offering large state conventions and curriculum fairs and even exerting influence with state legislatures around the nation.
Home schoolers were once outcasts, Moore asserts, “but the tide has turned, and now Christians who are public schooling their children are on defense.” Now it is those parents with kids in government schools, he says, who must “give an explanation of why their doing such a terrible thing.”

If the liberals have their way, they will completely cut the parent out of the education process and then push their agenda of homosexuality and sex with anyone, anytime to our children. With parents being so busy just trying to make ends meet, the chance of them being able to catch and debate the “education” the schools are dishing out is slim.

Pray for our Children.

Momma Sheehan Book Signing & What Media Bias?

Monday, November 28th, 2005

Check out the massive crowds that attended Cindy Sheehan’s book signing party at Crawford, Texas this last weekend. Why there must be..what, maybe five people.
I can only hope that this woman’s fifteen minutes of fame in the spotlight are over. It’s been shameful how she has exploited her son’s courageous death. It mades me sick how she has acted. She never met a camera she didn’t like.

As for media bias, the last picture in the set is the one Reuters ran. It’s been pointed out what a strange camera angle they used in order to avoid showing just how few people showed up.

Tehran to Pyongyang: Trade oil for nuke help

Sunday, November 27th, 2005

Maybe we should have expected this. Who better for the Iranians to buy nuke material and information from then the North Koreans? They need the oil and energy solutions and Iran wants the ability to put nukes in the hands of their deranged leader. What a world this has become.

Western intelligence sources, cited in yesterday’s edition of Der Spiegel, say Iran has asked North Korea for assistance with its nuclear missile program in exchange for oil and natural gas.
According to the German daily, a senior Iranian official visited Pyongyang in October to tender the offer. While North Korea’s response to the deal was unclear, revelation of Tehran’s outreach fuels further suspicion Iran is attempting to develop nuclear weapons and the means to deliver them.
Last week, the U.N.’s atomic watchdog agency revealed that Iran had received what appeared to be blueprints for the core of a nuclear warhead in 1987 through the network run by Abdul Qadeer Khan, father of Pakistan’s nuclear program. During the same week, Tehran announced it had begun converting a second batch of uranium into gas, a necessary step toward enrichment for generation of electricity or development of a nuclear bomb.

As WorldNetDaily has previously reported, Tehran is getting secret help for its Shahib 3 missile program from former Russian military personnel who are acting as go-betweens on a deal struck in 2003 between North Korea and Iran.

Of course the first thing they will do with their nukes is to flip one at Israel. But what about the palestinians, you might ask? Since when has the arab world ever cared about the palis past wanting them for cannon fodder?
I hope the Lord hurries back.

Luke 1:26-38 New International Version (NIV)

The Birth of Jesus Foretold

26 In the sixth month, God sent the angel Gabriel to Nazareth, a town in Galilee, 27 to a virgin pledged to be married to a man named Joseph, a descendant of David. The virgin’s name was Mary. 28 The angel went to her and said, “Greetings, you who are highly favored! The Lord is with you.”
29 Mary was greatly troubled at his words and wondered what kind of greeting this might be. 30 But the angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary, you have found favor with God. 31 You will be with child and give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus. 32 He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. The Lord God will give him the throne of his father David, 33 and he will reign over the house of Jacob forever; his kingdom will never end.”

34″How will this be,” Mary asked the angel, “since I am a virgin?”

35 The angel answered, “The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you. So the holy one to be born will be called[a] the Son of God. 36 Even Elizabeth your relative is going to have a child in her old age, and she who was said to be barren is in her sixth month. 37 For nothing is impossible with God.”

38 “I am the Lord’s servant,” Mary answered. “May it be to me as you have said.” Then the angel left her.

Powerful Quake Hits Southern Iran

Sunday, November 27th, 2005

Well, maybe God will do what the U.N. won’t.

TEHRAN, Iran — An earthquake measuring at least magnitude-5.9 shook southern Iran on Sunday, killing five people and flattening at least four villages, officials said. The temblor was felt as far away as Oman and the United Arab Emirates.

It seems like there’s been a lot of earthquakes lately.

Sharon readies plan for total West Bank pullout by ’08

Saturday, November 26th, 2005

This man has been possessed or something. What is he thinking??? Is he a pali plant?? I cannot believe that he is planning to give away up to 95% of the West Bank.

EL AVIV — Prime Minister Ariel Sharon has drafted a plan for Israel’s withdrawal from virtually all of the West Bank by 2008.
Political sources said Sharon has begun briefing senior U.S. officials of his intention to withdraw unilaterally from more than 95 percent of the West Bank. They said Sharon, who quit the ruling Likud Party on Nov. 21, would seek a U.S. and international security presence in the area as well as a commitment for the dismantling of Palestinian insurgency groups.


At least he’s not making noises (yet) about giving back Jerusalem!!

Are French Riots Coming to the U.S.?

Friday, November 25th, 2005

Hat Tip: Jennifer Rast at the Scriptorium.

Those peace loving muslims are at it again, this time in Oakland, California.

Members of the Nation of Islam attacked liquor stores in Oakland today, basically destroying the inside of the stores.

About a dozen African-American men wearing suits, white-collared shirts and bow ties – a trademark of the Nation of Islam – entered the store on San Pablo Avenue and West Street about 11:30 p.m.
One went behind the counter and swept dozens of shelved liquor bottles to the floor. Others smashed glass refrigerator doors with long, slim metal pipes, breaking beer and wine bottles inside the cases. The whole incident from start to finish was caught on surveillance tape.
The men warned the store clerks to stop selling alcohol to African Americans, but they also knocked over display racks containing bread and other food items. Then, almost as quickly as they arrived, they all filed out and headed to another West Oakland liquor store, New York Market at Market and 35th streets, where they did the same thing.


This is exactly how things began in France. From the New York Post earlier this month:

“The radicals have managed to chase away French shopkeepers selling alcohol and pork products, forced “places of sin,” such as dancing halls, cinemas and theaters, to close down, and seized control of much of the local administration.”

I have news for them. They better not start that type of thing here. Americans are not nearly as surrender-ish as the French. The RoP (religion of peace) may find things a bit harder over here. But I must say, they have choosen the state to start it in rather well. If anyone is “French-ish” in this country, it’s the Californians.

EU: Iran Papers Solely for Making Nukes

Friday, November 25th, 2005

If the Iranians don’t watch out, the U.N. Security Council might pass a resolution against them!! We all saw how effective that was with the Iraqis. Well, I guess the Iranians can sleep tight knowing that they can develop their ability to blow up the world without interference from anyone.

VIENNA, Austria (AP) – The European Union is accusing Iran of possessing documents used solely for the production of nuclear arms and is warning of possible referral to the U.N. Security Council, according to a statement made available to The Associated Press on Thursday.

The press statement, made available before planned delivery later in the day, was described by a diplomat as a summary of what Britain, France and Germany would tell a closed session of the International Atomic Energy Agency board which began meeting on Thursday.

The statement said the EU would accuse Iran of possessing suspicious documents that “have no other application than the production of nuclear weapons.”

“Failure to make progress” on easing international concerns about Iran’s nuclear program “will hasten the day when the board decides that a report to the Security Council must be made,” said the statement to be delivered by Peter Jenkins, the chief British delegate to the IAEA.

The European Union also reserves the right to call an emergency board meeting before the next scheduled gathering in March – for possible Security Council referral – “if Iranian behavior makes it necessary,” said the statement.

More Trash from E! – Entertainment Television

Wednesday, November 23rd, 2005

Sometimes this network has a good show, but for the most part, the network who brought you Howard Stern, now is raising the bar by bring you Girls Next Door.
That’s right folks, more smut thrown your way to further the cause of moral decay and according to Dr. Judith Reisman, is “just another example of Hollywood’s attempt to normalize the porn industry in today’s culture”. Bring on none other than Hugh Hefner and the everyday lives of the three “twenty-something” live-in girlfriends.

(AgapePress) – Entertainment Television’s show Girls Next Door is just another example of Hollywood’s attempt to normalize the porn industry in today’s culture, claims an internationally respected expert and justice consultant on the subject.
In an exclusive interview, Dr. Judith Reisman — author of the soon-to-be-released book Kinsey’s Attic: How One Man’s Psychopathology Changed the World — blasted the E! TV channel by saying, “the fact [that the network] states on its website that they are owned 49.9% by Disney says it all.“
Continuing, Reisman asserts that “Disney now pimps the antique, surgically enhanced Hugh Hefner playboy. Hefner’s ‘innocent’ pornography will seduce dad. Seduce dad and you will get his kids. Seduce kids and you control; you own an entire impotent male population of users and female wannabees — forever.”
Reisman, a prolific writer who is best known for her expose on sex researcher Alfred Kinsey, recalls that Hefner “actually drew the first ‘sibling’ incest cartoon for Playboy in 1954.” She adds that the Playboy founder “personally selected the thousands of child sex abuse jokes and cartoons that were a Playboy staple.”
