#TOLERANCE BYTES: The Michael Brown Effect

One day *Ferguson was a normal under-performing suburb with families and immigrants and refugees trying to get along their daily lives, some living hand-to-mouth, some on the street, some doing better. Ferguson is just like a lot of other outlying burbs next to major cities, some do better or worse than others. In this economy, I would call Ferguson ‘normal’. And just like most burbs next to major cities, Ferguson has a median income of $36K, median home of $92K, lost about 5% of population since the last census, 65% black/30% white; in other words, Ferguson is doing way better economically than most burbs next to major cities, including where I live. But what we did not know was how Ferguson was hanging precariously in the balance. The racial divide was about to erupt.

KEEPLIFELEGALPredicting this racial eruption was not as hard as you would think, if you add the slumping economy into the mix. People on hard times react differently than normal, they feel cornered and on edge. Life is hard when there is limited work and opportunities.

And then August 9th happened. It was the match that lit a fire, and that fire spread from all over Ferguson and across the country, causing racial division and hatred. This was not a civil rights case, and if it were, it does not give leeway to commit crimes of any kind. People of Ferguson and across the country decided to commit crimes in Mike Brown’s name to give it ‘credibility’ and an excuse.

However, this article is not about Michael Brown, it is about the effect his case made to make normal every day people to loot, set fires, roll cars, etc. This is about how close we are to every religion or race to erupt and cause what may be irreversible harm and injury to everyone.

American citizens are being indoctrinated with Islam, it being calledKEEPLIFELEGAL a ‘peaceful religion’. We see muslims literally imported to the United States taking our own resources we cannot have. Schools are allowing Islam in, forcing Christianity OUT. Some schools have field trips to mosques, girls told to wear hijab. But as I just mentioned, the resources are given to them while decent tax paying citizens are living in their cars and eating at soup kitchens because these so-called refugees are given whatever they want, including money to open their own business, etc.

Peaceful? Peace loving? So were the residents of Ferguson. So were the residents of Los Angeles in the South Central riots of 1992 that killed 53. So were the residents of Detroit in the Race Riots of 1967 that killed 43. The list of riots that was caused by race, religion or economics is enormous. In other words, people riot or cause war because of an injustice or perceived injustice. Remember that Rodney King said, “Can’t we all get along?” We war each other but a new war is on the horizon.

As I said earlier, this article is not about Ferguson, but what happened to Ferguson and Los Angeles and Detroit should remind us that riots and war can happen with just one match.

Obama has once again stepped on the toes of our Founding Fathers with the blood of Christians being beheaded by Islam, and more recently 40 people were set on fire while still alive. And don’t believe the out loud ‘disassociation’ with ISIS from Islam, certainly ISIS isn’t Buddhist or Baptist – they are ISLAM; they all read the same Koran.

Obama said, “No religion is responsible for terrorism…..And we are not at war with ­Islam…..Islam has been woven into the fabric of our country since its founding” which is all a diabolical lie. Religion put Jesus Christ on a Cross to die a humiliating public death, just to name ONE act of religious terrorism. See the White House conference on “countering violent extremism” video here and read the rest here. Obama’s facts are just a bit off. Why? Because Barack Hussein Obama is protecting Islam in America.

The Koran teaches Islam to hate Christians, to kill them. This plays out in plain sight and still no one pays attention. Since 9/11, Americans are lulled asleep with lies of a religion that hates them. Our resources are used against us while our ‘president’ looks on.

The Michael Brown Effect is close, all of the pieces are in place for Islam to rise in the United States, first to cause unrest, if you can call it that after 9/11 – and then war. Just like Ferguson, every day life was what it was, predictable. And today we are just as asleep at the wheel as they were. Did Ferguson know they would riot on August 8th? No…and neither do Americans trust in the signs of the times while Islam consumes Christians one country at a time. Just one match can set a fire; just one death can cause a riot. What will it take for Islam to make sense to the average individual that they will take no prisoners?

What Ferguson did not realize is that all the pieces were in place on August 8th, tensions were high and tight, ready to do battle. What they did not know is when. When hate and race and religion are picked at long enough, August 9th will happen again – this time with Islam.

The Church needs to know their community so well that they can sense a change in the weather. Pastors are not watchman as they are called to be. If Pastors cannot discern the times, then how can they righteously arm their flock properly with the knowledge of the Word of God and the times to come?

What will be that one match to start that fire? Until that day, we may not know. Active terrorism in America is a breath away, the signs are obvious and the sky is dark. Make no mistake Christian – we will see tribulation. Soon. Because America has been tolerant, nearly to death.

Jesus said, “When it is evening you say, ‘It will be fair weather, for the sky is red’;  and in the morning, ‘It will be foul weather today, for the sky is red and threatening.’ Hypocrites! You know how to discern the face of the sky, but you cannot discern the signs of the times.” Matthew 16:2-3

AND:

 “So you, son of man: I have made you a watchman for the house of Israel; therefore you shall hear a word from My mouth and warn them for Me.” Ezekiel 33:7

Christian, you may think you know persecution, but I assure you that the 21 Coptic Christians would disagree with you. Persecution is coming to America, to the Church, and to every Christian in the name of a ‘peaceful religion’ and Obama has nodded in approval.

SIDEWALK CHRONICLES: Egg on the face?

Nope. Aim wasn’t that good….but the intent was. How do two ‘grown’ men driving past an abortion facility find it necessary to spray a prolife senior citizen – alone on a public sidewalk – with a 1/2 dozen eggs? KEEPLIFELEGAL

One of the eggs didn’t break, nor did any hit their intended target.

Prolifers are expected to follow the law while prochoicers with little to do with their time break the law.

Another case in point recently was at the last abortion facility in Jackson, Mississippi. Now, while I love to visit the Mississippi Gulf Coast, Jackson is quite another part of the world that doesn’t quite mesh with its polite southern counterpart. Created Equal was at this last abortion facility in Jackson and watched, along with police officers, as prochoicers thieved Created Equal’s signs…many of them. Click here for the video and story. Currently, Created Equal has filed a lawsuit against the Jackson Police Department citing harassment and threats toward law abiding peaceful prolifers.

“There are nine instances reported in the lawsuit where the claimants argue police officers violated their rights and harassed them while they were not breaking any laws. The suit also repeatedly claims that JPD officers told different protesters they could not put signs on public sidewalks but instead had to hold them at all times,” the story goes on to say.

Who does the law protect? Not law abiding peaceful prolifers on a public sidewalk or right-of-way.

2014-07-16 14.07.19 2014-07-16 14.07.30At a prolife event just last week, our sidewalk was riddled with police officers. The city spent THOUSANDS for these officers watch us pray, sing and children draw with sidewalk chalk. Some of the officers were kind, others were intentionally ‘over zealous’.

Moral of the story: Bring a camera….and use it.

Scary Prolife Event

 

The (continued) Islamization of Michigan

A recent article in the Detroit Free Press said“A national campaign aimed at challenging persistent discrimination against U.S. Arabs and Muslims is preparing to launch in Detroit…….Several Arab-American, Muslim and civil rights groups will gather Monday in Detroit to discuss the effort called Take on HateIt follows the campaign’s March launch in Washington, D.C., as part of the sixth annual Arab American Advocacy Week.”

It shouldn’t be news to anyone that Islam is hovering over Michigan, mainly the Detroit area. Michigan has succumbed to the Islamic Agenda, making native Michiganders, legislators, mayors, city councils, and the Governor cower to their evil vendetta to everything decent and good using a failing economy to further their deed. Much like in Ohio, the Islamic Agenda uses local governments to take free land, homes, food, etc, and eventually force and enforce Sharia Law as their payment back to society at-large.

Now that God has been taken out of schools and most local government, the Islamic Agenda moves in to force Allah and Muhammad onto school kids, universities and of course…the government as a ‘peaceful religion’. Considering the continued crises in the Middle East, I believe they have shown their cards to the world.

The Islamic Agenda says it promotes peace but is actually promoting hatred toward anything Godly, of God and all Christians. Their site called ‘Take On  Hate’ is geared to force people to see their agenda through blood colored glasses; the blood of innocent Christians that are persecuted and martyred every day in Islam controlled countries simply because of their faith in God.

An excerpt from their site says: “Since 9/11, there has been a vast increase in discrimination toward the Arab American community [ISLAM]. Take On Hate moves us closer [INTO EVERY NEIGHBORHOOD, CITY, STATE] to being a [ISLAM] nation that upholds dignity and equality for all – regardless of national origin, ethnicity, or religion. Our goal is to achieve meaningful social change through public education [FORCED INTO PUBLIC SCHOOL SYSTEM], media advocacy [LIBERAL MAINSTREAM MEDIA], policy change [SWAYING VOTERS USING OUR TAX MONEY], and coalition building [SHARIA].”

This evil agenda bullies every city council to continue their plan: “A Muslim organization is targeting seven Michigan residents who opposed plans for a major Islamic construction project in their neighborhood, and a legal team defending them alleges that the goal is to intimidate the project opponents and send a message to others…..A variety of subpoenas for information, including private emails and other documents, had been delivered by the Council on American-Islamic Relations.” Read the rest here.

America was founded upon Biblical tenets and values that the Islamic Agenda hates. Their quran dictates the ability and necessity to kill the ‘infidel’ to purify the world of the God of Jehovah.

CHRISTIANS, this isn’t like eating at a middle-eastern restaurant, this is WAR and it’s pointed right at YOU. People are paralyzed with FEAR to offend – let me remind you that this so-called offense is nothing compared to what we will deal with if or when Sharia is established. Liberal Democrats see nothing wrong with this which should be your first clue that something is dreadfully wrong. In the city in which I live, we are seeing so-called refugees from muslim countries deposited here to liven up our failing economy…with halal shops, hookah lounges and cell phone stores.

CHURCH, WAKE UP! Continue in the Faith, be a hand extended, love with ferocity. Jesus is our only Savior forever and to the end.

“Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your labor is not in vain in the Lord.” 1Corinthians 15:58

SIDEWALK CHRONICLES: The Porsche Guy

I am writing this in a manner not to offend my Catholic friends but I feel that the remarks that Francis has made about abortion, contraception and gay marriage are damning and damaging to the church and the morality of the nation. I do not believe in Catholic doctrine, everyone knows that. I’ve kept my peace…but this time Francis has opened up a can of ‘abortion’ worms. I saw the interview this morning with Dolan and thought….I wonder how long it will take to see this on the sidewalk? Hours….only HOURS. TRUTH

Has Francis backed away from abortion, contraception and gay marriage? Truth and perception are two totally different things. The media believes that Francis has loosened up while conservative Catholics say “it’s not what it looks like”. I think it is. Here’s why:

PERCEPTION: On the sidewalk today, a 60ish year old man in a Porsche Carrera convertible stopped on a very busy street around lunch time to tell us that “The Pope said abortion is okay!” and something to the effect that we don’t have to ‘do this’ anymore. Porsche Guy assumed we were Catholic drones that would do anything the Pope said and now we’re off the hook. Let me be clear: Even IF I were Catholic, I would not succumb to incorrect doctrine or a bad pope….but some would. Unfortunately, we’ve heard it with our own ears.

Anyway, I responded with ‘it wasn’t true what the Pope said’. Porsche Guy said, AND I QUOTE: “Tough shit, the Pope said so!” and races off. Coward. He should have parked that Porsche JUNK and chat awhile. I wonder why no one does when they have the fortitude to tell us off…anyway…

“It is not necessary to talk about these issues all the time. The dogmatic and moral teachings of the church are not all equivalent. The church’s pastoral ministry cannot be obsessed with the transmission of a disjointed multitude of doctrines to be imposed insistently…..We have to find a new balance,” the pope continued, “otherwise even the moral edifice of the church is likely to fall like a house of cards, losing the freshness and fragrance of the Gospel.” Read the rest here.

Disjointeddogmaticnot equivalentnew balance. This stinks of the same noncommittal attitude of the Gospel as Joel Osteen. I will say the one thing Francis is correct about is that the church WILL fall like a house of cards with this kind of attitude on sin.

Francis also said: “We cannot insist only on issues related to abortion, gay marriage and the use of contraceptive methods. This is not possible,” he said. “The teaching of the church, for that matter, is clear and I am a son of the church, but it is not necessary to talk about these issues all the time.” I disagree…if you do not address sin, you run with papal scissors. Basic human morality and salvation is at stake ALL THE TIME.

TRUTHFrancis just threw a wrench into solid doctrine because of his Jesuit roots. Don’t look so surprised, this was coming and it isn’t over yet; the implication is clear that Francis is zeroing in on the circumstance NOT the sin. That is not biblical but it is popular:

“And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting; being filled with all unrighteousness, sexual immorality, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, evil-mindedness; they are whisperers, backbiters, haters of God, violent, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, undiscerning, untrustworthy, unloving, unforgiving, unmerciful; who, knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them.” Romans 1:28-32

It’s bad enough that Evangelicals and Protestants waver and hide with abortion and gay marriage, and now this? Francis opened the door to the ‘drive by’ we received today. I sure hope Francis doesn’t start traveling with ‘Nuns on the Bus‘; they are the epitome of social justice while forsaking the unborn, among other things. My family are liberal Catholics that have all kinds of opinions with no action,just like the Porsche Guy. I used to be one of them.

Cowards…all hat, no cowboy.

BUT the truth will prevail, Jesus is coming again regardless of me, Francis or Porsche Guy. The truth is valuable and it’s FREE:

Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.” John 14:6

[COMMENTS: If you are led to make a comment on Catholic doctrine, please back it up with Scripture.]

SIDEWALK CHRONICLES: My Monday Observations

Seeing a funeral procession go past the abortion facility today was rather interesting – there was death on both sides of the sidewalk. On one side there were family and friends mourning the loss of a loved one on their way to have a proper burial. On the other side was dark and evil, murdered unborn children are discarded like common trash with no regard at all. I hate that side of the sidewalk.

On the way to the sidewalk last week I saw a blind man walking not one, but TWO dogs and they weren’t service dogs. Yes, I can do this thing that God told me to do, no matter how uncomfortable or hard it is…boots on the ground running.

BUSINESS AS USUAL: I was part of a round table discussion recently in the local newspaper about how far the Republican Party has stooped since the last election. I say as the Church goes, so does the nation and the church has shown that it has become a dull-witted social club. It’s no secret that the GOP has not done what they’ve been elected to do particularly with the abortion agenda and gay agenda. I am one of those prolifers that follows what’s going on in the Statehouse because it shows what direction we are going as a State and who’s voting. A recent article said Romney would have won this state had white voters showed up….and we are cast as the racists? I can tell you that even though we are a ‘red’ state, we have fallen from grace to a social business club full of half-truths and out right deceit. Our GOP US senator has a son that comes out and tells us to deal with it, state senators and reps that call themselves prolife and bail at the last minute just in time for reelection…not surprised, really – but I am disappointed to the point of moving to a state that has ‘potential’, if that’s even possible.

AS I CONTINUE TO RANT: The Apostle Paul said to “work out your own salvation with fear and trembling”, then the question I have for Christians is this: If people have a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ as Saviour…a born again Christian…how is it that we set up certain rules to weed out who we think aren’t ‘real’ prolife Christians? I suppose we can use works as a judge, “I’ll show you my faith BY my works”, but what else does it take? Is everyone else really doing it wrong [I speak of true born again believers, not Protestants]? Or is it that other Christian prolifers don’t do things in a way that is acceptable? I JUST WANT SOMEONE TO SHOW UP! See, I can say the same for certain churches that attack true born again Christians for ‘doing it wrong’, according to their standards, whatever they may be. Attacking each other is dangerous and can cause a brother or sister to stumble in the Faith and even fall away. It also makes us look like complete idiots to the unsaved and prochoicers, so why attack each other when we have an entire world out there that seeks to persecute, demonize and criminalize us? There is so much to do in the name of Jesus to save a dying world and we fight each other. Don’t be a step away from being a cult.

But let me say this: Protesting churches that are in direct violation of the Word of God and demanding an answer of why they accept abortion, gay agenda, Islam, etc., is VALID. I want to know how a church or denomination evolves themselves into thinking that they need to feed stray cats and not save unborn children….YES, I WANT AN ANSWER FROM CHURCHES THAT USE SOCIAL JUSTICE AS A CRUTCH AND DOCTRINE. That is not a church, that is a community center.

MEANWHILE, BACK AT THE SIDEWALK…We have to ‘get’ that we are all accountable to God for our works or lack of. We are missionaries in a world that does not want us and even seeks to have us forcibly eliminated by changing the law and outright persecution. We are soldiers, we are CHRISTIANS, we are NOT going away.
