The forgotten First Amendment

Or, Excuse me, Sir, but you have just stepped on my Civil Liberties! 

The First Amendment of the Bill of Rights says:  ‘Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.’

“As a conservative Christian, I firmly believe the homosexual lifestyle is morally wrong, and my blog posting sought to emphasize there are economic and public policy implications to widespread and open acceptance of this lifestyle,” said Bert Chapman, a Purdue University professor, who blogs as the “conservative librarian” at www.townhall.com.

I am a Conservative Christian in doctrine and in a standard of living ordained by God, not the world. Being a Conservative Christian means understanding and living by every word written in the Bible, not just selected bits and pieces of it. That being said, some would say that the Levitical Law was under Grace after Christ’s death on the Cross. When it comes to the homosexual lifestyle, nothing can be further from the truth, read Romans 1:16-32*(see ref).

From IndyStar:  A Purdue University professor has landed in hot water with students protesting his personal blog — a conservative Web page on which he posted an ‘economic case against homosexuality.’ Some have called for Bert Chapman to resign or be fired for his Oct. 27 posting, which laid out an argument that the cost for AIDS research and treatment should factor into the national debate over the acceptance of gays and lesbians.

Actually, Chapman is correct – keep in mind the proposed Freedom of Choice Act; it spoke of the downturn the economy will take if all of the children that should have been aborted would be born because it was ASSUMED that they and their mothers would be on the government dime. So why is there a difference of importance between gays and the unborn? Because the unborn cannot speak for themselves. I assure you that these precious preborn souls would choose Life.

Besides what the homosexual lifestyle infers, as taxpayers we already pay for HIV and AIDS research and treatment, we already pay for abortions and contraception; but the proposed healthcare bill will include gender reassignment and fulfilling homosexual ‘families’ – artificial insemination,  IVF, infertility counseling, adoption and foster parenting.

Our freedom of speech is limited to the opinion of those that are within earshot and a computer.

It’s time to GET OFF THE COUCH and stand up for LIFE and LIBERTY.

*ref:  Romans 1:26-32,  ‘v26For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:  v27And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.  v28And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;  v29Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,  v30Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,  v31Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:  v32Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.

In the case of Abortion in the Government arena.

Or, The Circus is in town.

Since the House vote on Bill HR3962 and the rejection of abortion services covered (Stupak Amendment, HR3962, Rev 108), the backlash has been interesting and entertaining seeing how Republicans and Democrats are reacting to it:

‘Dozens of House members are vowing in a letter to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to vote against any final House-Senate compromise that contains the new abortion restrictions. Rep. Diana DeGette, D-Colo., is continuing to gather signatures on the letter, which calls the language “unprecedented and unacceptable.” In the hour after the Saturday night vote, she told me, more than 40 people signed on – enough to sink the final bill. “People were mad,” she said.’ Read the entire article here.

NARAL is threatening not to campaign for any Dem that voted to expel abortion services from HR3962 which proves that this is an AGENDA for the abortion business, not a civil right that it is claimed to be. Protecting the lives of the unborn is getting a bit messy in Washington. How is it that anyone can deem that killing children is good government?

‘The House bill as introduced included a carefully negotiated compromise involving a new competitive insurance marketplace, or exchange, for the self-employed and the uninsured. If they received federal subsidies to help them pay for plans, that money would be segregated and used for services other than abortion. Thus the new health bill would comply with the Hyde Amendment that bars federal funds for abortion.’

An agenda is a clear and present danger; it poses questions and questionable tactics to gain a civil right to do an injustice to those that either cannot speak for themselves or are not smart enough to truly sort out the presumed fact from fiction that is presented. Thusly, we are inundated with their rhetoric and their ideology to support a selfish scheme for a sect of people that DO NOT have ‘tolerance’ for yours.

There is much more to discuss and agree upon IF any healthcare bill were to come across the president’s desk. But now we have Democrats fighting each other.

The case of Abortion in Government will likely be the mechanism to upend the entire HR3962. I assure you that there is another bill being written right now to blow yet another smokescreen to justify all Liberal agendas while Obama is in office….because now they realize that this guy is most probably a one-termer.

C’mon lifers…it’s time to take the gloves off. This whole debacle proves that Abortion cannot be in government anywhere under any circumstances.

 

A Diverse Agenda

Or, Rules are rules.

From the Dayton Daily News:  “It’s so unjust and such a ridiculously outdated policy,” she said. “Why use homophobia and discrimination on the basis of marital status to keep good loving parents from having children?”

A hospital network in Dayton, Ohio, does not help single women to get pregnant by IVF or artificial insemination. They don’t have to – they do not take government money, thus does not have to cower to political correctness.

The Kettering Health Network is a network of hospitals that is Seventh Day Adventist, by faith and by conviction. “Like many faith-based organizations, our focus is on offering reproductive medicine service to married couples. We refer requests from individuals to other centers who have historically served these types of requests. We are reviewing our position on this, given the request of this individual.”

Take this case and jump ahead a few years when healthcare is socialized and we will see a magnified change in policies. Can the Government force private hospitals to perform abortions and help same sex couples have children? Government money comes with a lot of baggage that in the end, we cannot afford. Slowly, we are being owned by what was a free enterprise system that has turned into a diverse agenda.

This diverse agenda that has evolved from everything in this world that is against God – has everything to do with our impending new healthcare system.

From the New York Times:  Supporters of gay rights have long been trying to change the tax treatment of health benefits provided by employers to the domestic partners of their employees. In effect, such benefits are now treated as taxable income for the employee, and the employer may owe payroll taxes on their fair-market value. Under the bill, such benefits would be tax-free, just like health benefits provided to the family of an employee married to a person of the opposite sex.

The new healthcare bill is making provisions for same sex couples and single people to make families on our tax dime as well as killing unborn children.

How is that healthcare?

While your mom’s Medicare is cut in half, minor girls can have tax payer-paid abortions.

While your grandmother is waiting on the opinion of a death-panel, a lesbian couple can get free counseling to start their new family.

While your dad is waiting for news that he might be eligible for a heart transplant that would save his life, vending machines and fast food restaurants get their new government mandated labeling system to warn the public of fat and cholesterol in the food they are about to eat.

That is a Diverse Agenda – an agenda that is open to any wind of change of the Progressive Left.

When smoke gets in your eyes.

Or, Where’s the fire? 

The smoke screen that the Progressive Left has made is truly mammoth this administration. It’s a cover-up of organized mass destruction of real ‘change’.

Rep. Tom Price (R., Ga.), a conservative leader in the House, concedes that, in some cases, Republicans are being outflanked. “The administration is pushing so many things so rapidly it’s difficult to concentrate on all of them,” he said.

And while we were all busy getting reasonably upset at another ridiculous healthcare bill –THAT INCLUDES ABORTION, page 110 – that has nearly 2k pages and wondering how we were going to read it and understand it….suddenly the Hate Crimes Bill was pushed through without a bit of fan fare and giving the gay community more carte blanche to accelerate now legal hate against the straight and/or Christian community:

The Wall Street Journal notes:   The legislation gives the Justice Department the power to investigate and prosecute an expanded definition of hate crimes and to pre-empt local police when Washington decides too little is being done about a crime. The legislation has long been controversial. In fact, it took 14 votes in Congress to pass it. Opponents believe the measure is an unwarranted expansion of federal power. They also say it creates a new category of violent crime that isn’t necessary because the acts it addresses would be crimes regardless of motivation. Mr. Price, the congressman, called it an “unconstitutional thought-crimes law.”

The Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act (HR1256) gives the FDA power to regulate tobacco products. Regarding the new tobacco law, the Food and Drug Administration and allies in Congress have been seeking regulatory authority over tobacco since the early ‘90’s; tobacco is neither food nor drug. And since tobacco isn’t ‘safe’, it can become illegal. Does the new administration realize what this will do to tobacco farmers? Is the administration willing to allow these farmers to sell their business at a reasonable profit to the government? But even that being said, it is not up to the government to regulate what we eat, drink or ingest. This bill is another step toward socializing America.

The Omnibus Public Lands Management Act designates millions of acres of federal land as wilderness – which sounds like a nice idea until they deemed over 1 million acres of Wyoming land to be off-limits to natural gas and oil development. However when the land was surveyed, it was clear that the land held large oil deposits and natural gas deposits that could help with our energy independence from foreign oil. Interestingly, this is land made by God to support us that live on His earth and the Government will make sure we can look at it from a distance.

Be aware, be prepared…while this president is in office and doing the bidding of the Progressive Left while they have a chance, we will see more junk get passed and signed than ever before. The Liberals found their perfect patsy, President Barack HUSSEIN Obama. In the end, trees will have more rights than we do.

Meet HR3962

Make no mistake – Ms. Pelosi made sure that abortion is available and covered in the ‘Affordable Health Care for America Act’ – a new horror story from the Progressive Left to further control American citizens and illegals using health insurance as the new scare tactic.

See for yourself; this is page 110. You can read the entire bill here.
