Lately Christians in this country more and more have become used to being subject to discrimination, oppression, and slandering.
Just this past week Texas Governor Rick Perry (R-TX) had to take the heat because he dared to impose a “National Day of prayer for our beaten Nation on August 6th 2011”.
Critics immediately opposed that his call for a prayer was “too evangelical” as New York Times reports.
I have never heard Muslims call for prayer for our Nation, have you?
Christianity has always been a thorn in the flesh of radical left wing organizations such as the ACLU. Mostly because Christians strongly believe in moral values, the indefeasibility of traditional family, family values, and the right to live.
The latter especially was always a pain in the rear end for the ACLU because it contradicts their Agenda of Abortion.
But things have become worse since that radical Muslim-lover Obama joined the White House. On his very first inaugural tour he traveled to Egyptand declared publically that “The United States of America is no longer a Christian nation” bowing his head before Muslims.
He and his Czars have done everything in their power to promote Muslimization and allow Sharia Law to be installed all at the expense of Christianity in order to destroy it.
Christianity is the foundation of which our Foundation is built. Our founding fathers always had God in their minds and each and every declaration starts by mentioning “God”.
President Obama knows that Christianity as well as the Constitution (and both belong to each other as the fish to the water) is the foundation of everything Conservative Americans believe in.
In order to break our strength he has to take away what we love most – The CONSTITUTION AND OUR FAITH.
Doing so Obama plays a dangerous game with one of the most dangerous religions – Islam.
Obama really believes – if he helps Islamist’s to undermine our society and dismantle Christianity, and in the long run the spirit of the conservatives, he can then control Islam and build a socialist regime in America.
But that is going to back fire on him – because Muslims play Obama like an old piano. They know that as soon as we – the Christians – are destroyed, they will take over our Country and build a Muslim theocracy.
However, Obama in all of his radicalism and blindfolded naivety believing he will be able to control Muslims is not stupid at all.
He knows that by too much open force against Christianity he could produce a potential civil armed conflict. So, he does what Democrats always do best he uses indoctrination as a weapon.
It is quite contradicting that a radical organization like the ACLU who claims to fight for the separation of Church and State supports a radical Muslim faith that will never submit to Democracy and freedom of religion. On the contrary, Muslims are bound to impose a theocracy.
Michael Youssef founder of the Evangelical Church of the Apostles says in an interview with Christian Post: “Islam is a political and social ideology that will never submit to a secular form of government”.
While radical idiotic ACLU joined Forces with terrorist tied CAIR and keeps filing lawsuits against Christianity Obama positioned his Czars in all the important places to provide the proper indoctrination based on regulations for his advantage.
In this particular Case the FCC – Federal Communication Commission.
The best way to indoctrinate Americans is – TELEVISION. It is a fact that almost every American owns a TV, and though most people keep complaining about TV and the programs they keep watching.
In today’s world, kids spend more time in front of the TV than anywhere else. And though many parents really try to control what their children watch they are helpless when the Government uses the FCC issued TV regulations to indoctrinate socialism, muslimization, and other radical agenda’s through Children’s programs, and lately even through Christian Networks such as TBN (Trinity Broadcast Network).
With all of the cable networks leaving moral values by the wayside or surrendering to governmental and ACLU enforced political correctness the Trinity Broadcasting Network (TBN) has always been the stronghold for Christians and Christian programs.
But apparently “compromise” and “political correctness” has now infected them too.
Rick Warren, who is the pastor of Saddleback church in southern California, author of “Purpose Driven Life” and well known for swearing in Obama, has now become known for his desperate and radical attempt to introduce an interfaith program called “Chrislam”, a mix of Christianity and Islam. On June 8th 2011 TBN chose to impose “censorship” on a 23 year running program because the preacher was naming churches and leaders that have “lost their way” – Rick Warren was one of them.
When Jack Van Impe, of the weekly TV program, Jack Van Impe Presents, (a well known TV pastor) was explaining “Chrislam” and how un-Biblical and dangerous it is to our Christian faith and named 2 specific individuals, Robert Schuller and Rick Warren, TBN would not show the program.
In an open Letter written on June 11, 2011 by Jack Van Impe to all his partners and published on his website, he specifically states what happened and the reasons given by Matt Crouch of TBN on why they were not going to air his program or his DVD offer. Jack Van Impe’s letter can be read here on his website.
An official response from TBN remains unanswered. I requested a written Statement on the matter from TBN and received no reply at all.
A telephone inquiry was made by many of my friends and remains questionable – Telephone operators at TBN are saying the censorship issue is due to the FCC.
Questionable because that is not was told to Jack Van Impe: “On Wednesday afternoon we received a call from Matt Crouch of TBN informing us that they would not run that program, despite having aired it Monday evening. The reason he gave was that we specifically mentioned Rick Warren and Robert Schuller and that it is TBN’s policy that broadcasters are not allowed to rebuke other ministries” (See www.jvim.com/update for full letter).
And here is my major concern:
“1st Amendment of the United States Constitution clearly prohibits the making of any law “respecting establishments of religion, impeding the free exercise of religion, infringing on the freedom of speech, infringing on the freedom of press, interfering right to peaceably assemble or prohibiting the petitioning for a governmental redress of grievances”.
So when the FCC, a Governmental organization interferes with a private network of religious faith programs this is a clear violation of the 1st Amendment and unconstitutional.
And if this “censorship” is only based on FCC regulations, why hasn’t TBN opposed it and filed a lawsuit? In my opinion TBN has hidden behind feeblish excuses in order to appease the elite, Rick Warren and Robert Schuller.
The ACLU, Barrack Obama and the Federal Government is so concerned about the separation of State and Religion that it does everything possible in their power to dismantle the Christian influence in our society.
Why would they on the other hand so desperate try to sneak the indoctrination of Islam through the backdoor and even completely violate the 1st Amendment enforcing the indoctrination of a religion through a Governmental regulatory organization?
Texas– still one State under God – And not for Sale
The question is how much longer?
Bottom line is that just like the Nazi’s, the Obama administration pushes its will on the American people using the current media options to their advantage.
And just like WE THE PEOPLE changed the mind of Lt. Governor Dewhurst on the TSA-Anti-Groping-Bill through constitutional force by calling and emailing them, we have to do the same with TV Stations and Networks.
It is up to us to make it clear to them that they live exclusively off of us the viewers and if they don’t start making programs for us we will stop watching them.
Pick up the phone and contact TBN toll free 1-888-731-1000 or TBN’s business office under 1-714-832-2950 or pick up their website and send them a message or simply send them a good old fashioned letter: TBN, P.O. Box, Santa Ana, CA 92711.
Go tell your pastor, make it a case in church, and lobby and gather WE THE PEOPLE to force TBN to give up on the betrayal of true Christianity and take a stand for us.
If you do nothing you can be sure that Texaswill not much longer be “One State under God” and “In God We Trust” will no longer be the American Quote.
If you do nothing our Christian heritage will be erased. WE NEED our Cable Networks to pass on the TRUE Word of God since we cannot count on regular churches anymore.
May God BlessAmerica
Marriage should be honored by all,
and the marriage bed kept pure,
for God will judge the adulterer and all the sexually immoral.
In the late 60’s black civil rights activists joined forces with radical feminist groups and formed a new-age teaching called “Diversity”, basically a grassroots idea of multiculturalism.
Under the false pretense of protecting the rights of alleged minorities, woman’s rights and alternative sexual orientation they faced a strong opposition: Conservative Christians who upheld their ideal of morality and strong family values.
They found their first highlight in the late 60’s and 70’s and the “Hippy era”. Free love was the call of that time. And free love, or better anarchic sexual lifestyle of course came with consequences and the consequence of abortion was among many of the downfalls.
These times were short lived and the call for more morals and values increased.
But instead of taking a step back to reconsider their ideology and finally taking responsibility for their anarchic behavior the left over’s from those Hippie times have now become activists in those organizations, supported by liberal left wing radical Politicians from the Democrat party.
Best example is the Kennedy family. JFK was THE personification of a womanizer who slept with every woman that was not by three on a tree.
Today we live in fast moving times, a so called “fast food generation” where moral traditional values are washed away with the famous phrase “We do not live in the medieval times but rather in the 21st century” (I still never figured out what a number has got to do with moral values – but then I never really figure out the thinking of liberals period).
Since then the ACLU, ACORN, radical feminist rights activists groups, and other liberal Democratic Party affiliated organizations erode more and more the principals of traditional marriage as well as traditional moral values and principles.
Conservatives and their strong moral Judeo-Christian Values always stood and still stand in the way of their liberalism and alternative lifestyle and in their mind need to be pushed back.
And while we conservatives desperately defend our lifestyle we lose more and more ground because, other than us, liberal organizations pretty quickly found out that the best way to promote their lifestyle is using political lobbyism and the media.
Scandalous Democrat Politicians made their lifestyle political program using the Media as a platform. Instead of apologizing for their scandals and stepping down they appeared and still do on the media wallowing in self pity and blaming everything on the hard hearted conservatives.
And the media plays along. They found out that “Sex Sells” and where previously reluctant it’s now a promotion of alternative lifestyle.
When Lindsey Lohan, for example, goes for the tenth time to court, or is again and again caught being drunk and stoned the Media does not condemn hr, but rather makes her a role model and a victim.
Or let’s take a look at Paris Hilton. Who is Paris Hilton? She is a nothing with the short end of the brain, doing nothing but using drugs, getting drunk, flashing her privates, changing sexual partners on a daily base and partying. But according to the Media this individual is being considered a Role model for our youth.
The same counts for Hollywoodactors, stars, and starlets. The more scandals they produce – the more viewer levels/or sales volume on print media – the better, living by the rough-rule-of-thumb “Better bad news and scandals then no news at all”.
And so the Media became a willing partner and perfect platform for those radical organizations. Now they can use the numbers of the media as a justification for their radical immoral anti-family value teachings.
The final straw is the Governmental indoctrination of the alternative lifestyle.
Step one is the production of so called “discrimination laws”. Those laws are designed to prohibit freedom of speech in a way that every time we conservatives take a stand for our moral values and principles we commit the crime of discrimination.
Step two is the installation of liberal federal and Supreme Court judges to support Liberal ACLU and ACORN issues through the law producing precedential cases.
Step three is the most perfidies one. Now thanks to those “discrimination-laws” the government can indoctrinate our children on alternative lifestyle legally since the same politicians also provide the framework for school teachings in public schools and liberal judges justify the same through precedential cases.
Last but not least, those organizations use Poll numbers in order to convince the public that they are acting in the best interest of the majority. But those numbers are to be reviewed very carefully. A good friend of mine once said: “I never trust polls I haven’t forged myself”. The trick lies in the questionnaire and the people they ask.
So according to ACORN, ACLU, radical Feminist Rights activists, and other left wing radical groups the “Traditional marriage” and conservative lifestyle is outdated and dead.
But the opposite is true. Numbers show that, especially young people, more and more people long for traditional marriage, traditional families, and more moral values.
Dating Websites boom, dating shows in TV are fast sellers, MTV usually known for its liberal program launched religious adds on their Station; and even the ultra-liberal TV Station CNN was the strongest force with 500 representatives at the Royal Wedding in the UK this past Friday to assure they did not miss one moment of this amazing romantic wedding.
YES onFriday April 29, 2011something strange happened.
More than 2 Billion People worldwide watched the fairytale marriage of Prince William Arthur Phillip Lois House of Windsor, second in line for the British crown and the civic Catherine Elisabeth Middleton – now Duke and Duchess of Cambridge (2).
So, if traditional marriage is, in the public opinion dead, why would 2 Billion people bother to watch this marriage for more than 6 hours?
I have talked to people and a lot of them tried to explain to me that this is only because of the fairytale where a common woman marries a real life prince, the fairytale dream of every young girl.
But if that were true, people wouldn’t need to watch for 6 hours, CNN would not have to send over 500 people to that event, and hundreds of thousands of people would not need to go there to see it live – they would just need to wait for the executive summary.
The truth is that this particular wedding of Prince William and Duchess Catherine represents a lot more than just the fairy tale of prince and princess.
This marriage represents the lost dream of every woman and every man to live happily ever after with her personal prince charming or his personal princess.
In times where in some U.S. States it is more difficult to get a Marriage permit than it is to get a divorce.
In times where radical liberal groups teach us that marriage is not forever and this institution is outdated and if your marriage does not work just divorce and try the next one.
In times where people don’t know anymore how to fight for marriage because radical organizations teach us that the easy way out is always better than to fight for love ignoring the fact that people more and more long for stability and traditional values.
People watch those weddings because of their secret desire to find the same, a marriage that lasts forever. Thousands of entrepreneurs, wedding planers, and marriage outfitter’s make a living from personal fairy tales.
And the fact that so many people watched this Wedding makes me hopeful that traditional moral values are not dead and traditional marriage is not outdated as so many articles, blogs, and liberal radical grassroots try to tell us.
I am not willing to give up the fight on this issue and I will continue the fight for traditional marriage and values.
So let’s not take traditional values, family matters, and traditional family values away from us, fight for the traditional marriage and take a stand for what is right.
What God has joined together let no man put asunder

THE PRIVATE SECTOR
There are many possibilities for the private citizen to add and support this cause. From healthcare providers and Insurance companies to the millionaires and billionaires along with private donators.
(1) Health and Insurance providers.
Healthcare and Insurance providers would be well advised to come up with special plans for unwed single moms and children, including dental. In some extreme hardship cases even down to almost zero. Making plans equated based on income, life situation, and amount of children.
They should consider those in need now and their children as future paying customers in the long run.
I cannot speak for all church congregations when it comes to helping the poor, but most churches regardless of their denominational affiliation do set aside funds for those in need. However, most of this help is only for the short term.
Of course I understand that resources are limited and not every church is in the lucky situation to have a lot wealthy members and/or members that give. Here is where again the State or government could step in and support those efforts with financial aid. That way churches can provide more and better services.
(3) Millionaires and Billionaires
Those are my real favorite people. And I don’t mean that in a complimentary way. Just as churches I cannot speak for others and for everybody.
While conservative Billionaires usually follow the rule: Do good and don’t brag about it; there is not much known about their spending habits.
The Koch brothers for example, better known in coherence with the “Tea Party” are big time donators but the media is a lot more interested in their political activities and recently slammed by The New Yorker’s Jane Mayer in her article “Covert Operations,” (14) where she accused the brothers of “waging war against Obama”.
Truth and publically known is that the Koch brothers spent more than 100 Million Dollars on right wing political Causes, but what is not publically known is more than 600 Million Dollars in Pledged or donated money (15) went to arts, education, and medical research.
Another example is Linda McMahon (R – Politician and CEO of the WWE Entertainment) and her Husband Vincent Kennedy McMahon (Chairman of the WWE) and their entire family. Linda McMahon spent alone in 2008 over 8 Million Dollars to charity (16) causes (WWE company donations and support not included).
The McMahons are well recognized on their social welfare spending. Linda McMahon (if not running for office as a republican) is the CEO of the World Wrestling Entertainment and Vincent K. McMahon is the Chairman. The WWE is one of the biggest contributors to the “Make a wish foundation” (16), Children’s Education foundations, and many more, sending their poster Wrestlers John Cena, Big show, Kelly Kelly, John Morrison, and others permanently on fundraisers. But they are the only conservatives with public recognition on their Donations and only because they promote this through their weekly televised shows “Raw” and “Smackdown”.
The same counts for all sports events. Except the WWE who takes pride in their social engagement, major sports events like NFL Super bowl and others don’t seem to be interested in supporting this social cause. What they fail to see is that the ignored hardships of today are the fans and ticket buyers of tomorrow.
It would be a signal in the right direction if major Sports presenters, leagues, and broadcasters would make a public stand for Pro-Life, families, and children and not always duck before special interest lobbyists and lawyers in order not to offend somebody.
For example, remember the “scandal” of Tim Tebow with his 2010 Pro Life Super bowl commercial. While conservatives praised that young and brave man liberals went furious demanding this be removed (19). Thanks to CBS the commercial was aired, but what I missed was the NFL making a stand for this cause, a clear statement of their support.
My belief is that, millionaires and billionaires (especially liberals) only spend money when the Media is nearby, using their Donations as a promotion for themselves. And since the Media is a short-term-story-headline media they are not interested to continue promoting family support issues. But immediate headline producing catastrophes such as tsunamis are always good for headlines and for those billionaires to promote themselves.
PUT YOUR MONEY WHERE YOUR MOUTH IS
(4) Non Profit Organizations
A great way for WE THE PEOPLE as society to support this cause is to get involved in so called NPO’s (Non Profit Organizations (20)). Nonprofit organizations are tax exempt and can provide a wide variety of direct support. There are way over 1.4 Million NPO’s registered in the United States and the location of one of them is easy (20).
One of the best NPO’s supporting the Pro-Life cause is Steven Ertelt’s LifeNews (21). Working tirelessly on the cause his Website provides valuable information about every aspect from healthcare to financial support.
Personal responsibilities of each and every one of us
The issue of single parents in poverty, orphans in America, or the problems with adoption, should not exist in the richest nation on earth.
There is a lot we can do:
- First of all, on Christmas, Easter and all the other Holliday’s when our hearts are usually wide open, we can ignore the media coverage of foreign country begging, and start looking at how we can support the unwed mothers and children in our own country first.
- Don’t throw away your clothes and/or household items, but instead drop them off at churches, women centers and local children abuse centers.
- Lobby to Media, Sports entertainment, Health Companies and other services making your voice heard and tell them you won’t support them unless they make a stand for life, family, and children.
- Call your congressmanall the time and let him/her know you want him/her to make a stand for family values, women and children, and not just in “word,” but in “deed,” even if it is against the party line. It does not matter as long as it helps.
- Volunteer 1 hour at your local women’s shelter
- Get involved with state officials to change laws and policies that do not benefit women and children.
- Donate $5, $10 or $20 a month to your favorite local charity.
- Volunteer 4 hours a month at your favorite local charity.
And always remember Mother Teresa when she said:
“Never worry about numbers.
Help one person at a time,
and always start with
the person nearest you.”

The nine most terrifying words in the English Language are: “I’m from the government and I’m here to help”
The government can step in here in many ways without taking direct control, assist and support the mothers financially and through power. And that does not even require new laws, only innovation and the willingness to put the interest of children and parents first.
I. Tax Cut
President G.W. Bush Family-Tax-Cut plan (5) from January 2003, based on a year’s income was a step in the right direction; giving parents a minimum of $ 1,000 annually back in their pocket and financially assist in college refunds. This Federal Tax Deduction for children plan (6) provides a great amount of help to lower income parents in order to support their children. But this is only one step in the right direction and it is up to us to lobby politicians to take many more. This plan needs to continue indefinitely.
II. Defund Special interest groups such CAIR, NAACP, ACLU (Planned Parenthood) and others.
Those institutions cash hundreds of millions of dollars every year from the federal funds, but instead of supporting the needs of those they are supposed to represent, they would rather pay their high profile special interest lawyers, newspaper ads, TV commercials, and lobbyists, leaving the support additionally to the taxpayer.
The NAACP is the best example of that. While States struggle financially they still build so called housing properties for low income people. If they are not given primarily to NAACP represented minorities the word racism goes through the media like there is no tomorrow leaving White, Hispanic, and Native American women behind.
The money wasted on those institutions could be used more wisely in support of women who decide to keep their babies, e.g., medical aid, housing, food stamps, and legal and psychological support for those women whodecide to give their child up for adoption, and many other issues. And make this money accessible to all races banning special interest lawyers and lobbyists from constantly playing the race card.
III. Tighter regulations on Election Campaign contributions for federal funded institution such as Unions, and other special interest groups
What really makes me mad is that Federal Institutions and Organizations such as Unions spent Millions of Dollars on campaign contributions to politicians (13). Though this is money that belongs to all tax payers those Organizations support exclusively left wing radical politicians for their own benefit.
The use of OUR TAX DOLLARS by those Organizations should be under tight rules and regulations. Every Dollar spent on Campaign contributions should be equally donated to family programs, regardless of the political affiliation. And provide proof that both sides of the isle (pro-choice AND Pro-Life Organizations) get their equal share.
This way the spending to politicians will be cut in half, the future of our children secured, and the money stays where it belongs, with the people who need it.
Those Organizations need to be defunded period and so bring the money into family matters. Let’s face it – AFTERALL, THIS IS OUR MONEY.
IV. Confiscated money.
Pimps, weapon traffickers, prostitutes, drug smugglers… All of those are illegal and build a multibillion Dollar Industry in our country. Alone, human trafficking (7) has an estimation of 45 Billion Dollars per year. And all those “businesses” involve the hardship of families. The money confiscated from these industries can be returned to Human services in order to support families and their financial struggle of parenting. We are talking about billions of Dollars that is not used from tax payer’s money, but from Criminals.
Alone the Porn industry is a multi-billion Dollar industry. And despite what liberals say, fact is: A large portion of those Actresses are women who are victims of Human sex trafficking sold as slaves to the producers.
Of course, they would rather support Planned Parenthood. Having access to a quick abortion for one of their “actresses” is easier than dealing with raising children in the long run. So why not put an extra tax on porn movies, money that could exclusively be used to support young families and single parents.
Everybody viewingthose videos and movies supports those illegal actions, and therefore should do his share to society and pay the extra dollar on tax that supports children.
This is one of the main reasons why politicians and Government would rather support Planned Parenthood (Abortion) than family values; it is the easy way out.
All of that money, we are talking about several billions of Dollars here, that does NOT come out of tax Payers money, in the chapter I – IV saved and confiscated is now in the hands of the Federal Government. Here is a major problem that starts again with special interest and that is the distribution of those funds to the proper authorities in order to get the money to where it belongs – the families and children in opposition to abortion.
It would take innovation and a radical step to distribute the money back to the families and encourage them to actually have babies. Here is one idea:
V. Child Protective Services – This is a big Issue and goes hand in hand with many topics and solutions that could help and support single parents, support adoption and help through financial support.
Taking CPS out of State responsibility, adding it into HHS (U.S. Department of Health & Human Services (8)) and fund it with the money saved and confiscated above, this has many positive advantages. Right now, in order to get access to all the social support, partially from States and partially from the Federal Government, is more like running the gauntlet than help. And information is not really provided anywhere. And since the laws, rules, and regulations vary between the States up to the point that nobody really has any idea as of what to get and where, this system has become a Legal Jungle. And this would be the advantage of CPS becoming a federal Institution:
- Support in collecting Child support from dead beat fathers.
Right now the collection of child support is a state case. All it takes for a dead beat father is to leave the state and while he can demand visitation, the enforcement of unpaid child support falls on the different independent State laws which make the collection an extremely expensive lawyer’s battle for most single moms.
Making CPS a federal institution could put an end to this. The moment the father does not pay his CS he can be put on Federal Warrant and through the Federal power the money can be collected anytime and anywhere in the United States. And CPS being a federal Agency would have access to IRS, Social Security, and other Federal Financial Institutions to get a grip on that individual.
And then of course a harsher punishment for non paying fathers making “fleeing or neglecting Child payments” equal to Tax fraud.
- Split of power
Split of Power means, giving single moms the opportunity to split the power of attorney with CPS. While the mother keeps the custodial and parental guardianship and power, CPS is provided with the Administrative Guardianship. This means the mother as of now gets her child support from the Feds and the feds collect it from the fathers. Sounds complicated but it isn’t. The mother never has to worry about the money for the child coming late this way.
- Welfare and support
Food stamps, housing, clothing, etc. now comes out of the same pot and the women only have to deal with one agent in order to get all of their necessities. This lowers administrative costs and speeds up the processing.
Housing is currently federally financed, respectively financially supported. If CPS was a federal Institution they would have nationwide access to availability.
Federal Education Programs can provide the opportunity for the mothers to continue to go to school and get their education, or support mothers in home based businesses so they can take care of their children. Contracts with private and state childcare facilities, and schools as well as churches could be given financial incentives such as tax exemptions for providing assistance to single mothers.
CPS being a Federal Organization would put an end to the Adoption Jungle as it is right now. When conservatives claim “Less Government and more private” that is nonsense because Adoption is already in the hands of the State Government, so why not put this under one roof. Right now the Adoption Laws vary from State to State and while Texas is mostly low regulated (9) some States even have an age limit on adopters – age 40 -, or have insurmountable obstacles making the adoption a hassle. Not to forget that local CPS offices have only access to the children under their care. Making CPS Federal would give the local agent access to a nationwide database of adoptable children and increase the opportunity for children to actually be adopted.
While some states such as Texas reimburse adoption costs, some don’t. This opens the doors for private adoption agencies which makes adoption extremely costly.
Private adoption agencies are profit oriented businesses who, in their pricing, calculate all fees including State fees, administrative costs, their own lawyers, acquisition costs (children they buy from mothers mostly drug addicts who don’t want to give their kids up for adoption but rather sell them to agencies) and many more fees plus and additional profit, and don’t forget that parents need their own lawyer in order to double-check the paperwork.
Not to forget that State operated CPS Agencies and their complicated rules are very often difficult to deal with and the regulations complicated. In order to maximize their profit Private Agencies often look to third world countries where they can purchase babies often for a low price and mediate those into the U.S.
This makes adoption for regular middleclass families almost financially impossible. And the advantage of those agencies is that they DO HAVE access to a nationwide database.
CPS being federal puts an end to all this and makes adoption of American children more comfortable and more encouraging.
- Nationwide “Safe Haven Law”
I support the Idea that every Hospital, regardless of their political or religious affiliation should be forced to provide an “anonymous Baby hatch drop off Zone” where women can drop off their unwanted children without retribution or criminal prosecution for child abandonment.
Any hospital refusing this for religious or political reasons should be banned from public funding.
- Orphanage and Foster care
Before going any deeper, we have to determine what child actually ends up in Foster care or in an Orphanage. Orphanages are for children who lost their parents and don’t have any living relatives and Foster care is mostly for children that come from broken homes with parents unfit to provide for their children for whatever reason. And the latter is the main issue here. Those children are under Governmental care for a short period of time.
Orphanage and Foster care, is a difficult topic. Foster care has supporters and those who oppose it because many children placed into that system basically fall through the system and drop off the radar of overworked CPS workers, and let’s be honest, the reputation of State run homes for children is not very good.
But there is a pretty good private organization in Europe that provides a system I personally find suitable and worth promoting.
The system is called “SOS- Children’s Village” (10). A private, non-governmental, with Donation funded organization that focuses on family-based, long-term care of children who can no longer grow up with their biological family.
The main difference here to regular Orphanages and Foster homes is that the children are within a small group, living together as a sort of patchwork family with a “housemother” as their head of household/family. This organization buys some property and builds several homes, every home has a family where the kids have their private rooms, a play room, dining room, and a small kitchen area, as well as a social room and the mother has her own room.
As far as the governmental involvement is concerned this is only the tip of the iceberg, these are some basics to think about and start from for better ideas.
Don’t forget while government CAN BE forced to do the right thing through votes, and it is up to us to lobby our representatives to finally come up with proper projects and concepts, the private sector CAN NOT BE FORCED and everything they do has to be voluntary.
This Column is not about gays. What is right or wrong for other people is not for me to decide. I am heterosexual and just like I do not share with anybody my sexual preferences in the bedroom (other than with my spouse) I am not interested in the sexual preferences of others.
- Just like I reserve the right to say to a heterosexual man: I do not respect that you are going to prostitutes, or you cheat on your wife so please don’t bother me with your “hunting stories”,
- I reserve the right to say to a gay: Your lifestyle contradicts my ethical, moral, and religious beliefs so please stick to professionalism and don’t bother me with your ideology.
I don’t dislike the man I dislike the lifestyle and that goes for both.
Since Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid pushed, in their very own charming way (with threats and blackmail), the DADT repeal through the House and the Senate and Obama signed off on that thing with a huge and big grin on his face, many blogs and articles have been written about this and the possible why and what for.
I read them all, from all the great minds; From Michelle Malkin to Ann Coulter, from Chuck Norris to Bill O’Rilley. All of their thoughts about DADT are right but for some reason, none of them have come up with what might be the real agenda behind this radical move.
DADT (Don’t Ask Don’t Tell)
Yes DADT is all about gay rights, but more than that, DADT is also the proof that my upcoming book is going to hit the nail right on the head – if WE THE PEOPLE dare to reject an agenda of a minority it will be indoctrinated on us with fascist lethal force wrapped up as law, immediately making “opposition a punishable offense”.
And if that does not help, downsizing opposition as either radicals or insinuate a Mental Illness by the opposition calling them “Homophobe”.
Homo – the genus that includes modern humans. The word is originated from the Latin language, meaning “human being” or “man” (in the gender-neutral sense). (Source – Wikipedia: http://is.gd/jH5Pc)
Phobia (φόβος,phóbos): This word comes from the Greek language and stands for “fear”, “morbid fear”. Generally used when an irrational, intense and persistent fear of certain situations, activities, things, animals or people. In psychology a phobia is considered an “Anxiety disorder” (Source – Wikipedia: http://is.gd/jH6N5).
So bottom line: if you dare to disagree with something liberal radical Pundits like the Democrats, Gay-Rights-Activists, Abortion activists, or the ACLU promote such as Homosexuality or Muslims,
80% of the American people do NOT HAVE AN OPINION but a MENTAL DISORDER called Homophobe or Muslimphobe or any other liberal Agenda we might disagree with.
Back to DADT:
Gay rights are a huge agenda and the past years gay activists have lobbied and kept courts on their toes like no other activists group. Alone in the State of California, where over 52% of the Voters (WE THE PEOPLE) decided that Gay’s should not have been considered equal to traditional marriage the Agenda goes back and forth in courts I lost track.
We the people have spoken and that is to be respected by everybody and should be the end of it.
But not in California; The U.S. District Court ruled on August 4, 2010 in “Perry v. Schwarzenegger” proposition 8 unconstitutional. This ruling hearing starts on December 6, 2010, and is expected to affect all same sex marriage bans in the United States (Source – Wikipedia: http://is.gd/jHelM).
As you can see on the map below, the vast majority of the 50 States rejects or ban same sex marriage.
Pelosi, Reid, Obama, and all the other radical pundits did not want to wait on an uncertain ruling. The plan is pretty simple, by repealing DADT without waiting on the Court Ruling from the U.S. Supreme Court they sent a message to the court and to the people and the message is Clear – WE GET WHAT WE WANT ONE WAY OR THE OHER EVEN IF IT IS THROUGH THE BACKDOOR.
Some blindfolded romantics are going to sit back and think ok, now they can say publically they are gay. But that is not where it’s going to stop. This was just the first step to macerate the antoganism of the public and force indoctrination on the people.
1) DADT repeal is not just about the rights of gay’s to out themselves without punishment. This was only the first step to gain all the rights and benefits of traditional married couples in the United States Armed Forces. Those are:
- Medical Treatment – every active member and their legally married spouse as well as their children are entitled to full medical and dental coverage on the Military base and have prescription medicine at a lower cost in all drug stores.
- Tax Free shopping – every military personnel (Uniformed and civilian) with an active ID card is entitled to shop in so called PX Stores, store similar to Wall Mart (you get everything from food to electric to gardening) tax free.
- The use of Military gyms for military personnel and their family members
- The use of military amenities for personnel and family members
- Better travel deals on vacations for military personnel and family members
- Any many more benefits.
But those benefits are only available for Military personnel and their legally married spouses and children.
The next step for gay activists will therefore be to fight for equality rights on all of those benefits and the full acceptance on gay marriage.
2) In order to become eligible for those advantages, gays now have to push forward to gain Marriage permissions. What that basically means as of now is civil lawsuits are practically programmed.
FEDERAL INTEREST ABOVE STATE INTEREST. Ever head of this term? Well if you look at the map above the vast majority of the States deny or prohibit same sex marriage, but Military bases are not considered State property.
On military bases State Law does not apply only Federal Law.
That means that through the backdoor not only gay rights have been pushed on us, but also State sovereignty is now being questioned or respectively destroyed.
Should a base be in one of those States that prohibit gay marriage the soldier can always turn to the Military Pastorate. Those have the same authority to perform marriages under federal license. And a military cleric cannot refuse based on religious beliefs because a Military Cleric is not in the first place a priest; he is in the first place a COMMISSIONED OFFICER OF THE UNITED STATES ARMED FORCES under the chain of command. And their rules here are clear. The priest has only three choices when being ordered to uphold matrimony:
- Apply with the order against his personal beliefs – discrimination
- Refuse to follow orders – Greetings from the Court-martial and Leavenworth
- Or resign and give up all benefits, such as pension, VA rights, etc, etc.
And the resistance of the Independent States prohibiting Gay Marriage will probably be even worse now. No State legislation can accept to be double crossed and overrun by radical Washington Pundits. Not if State legislators want to be re-elected.
3) And finally the discrimination of heterosexual members of the Armed Forces. For instance:
- Showering – if you are a woman knowing I am a heterosexual man, would you just comply when somebody tells you, now you have to shower with me in the same bathroom?
Absolutely not and of course you have every right to protest. You would claim privacy rights, and make it a point that you do not feel comfortable being in the same room with a man, all naked. You would make it a statement that you would constantly feel observed or stalked and your sense of privacy is violated – AGAIN, I TOTALLY AGREE WITH YOU ON THAT AND YOU HAVE EVERY RIGHT.
But then please tell me: As a heterosexual man or woman, why should a soldier be forced to take a shower with a homosexual or a lesbian? What if it makes the hetero soldier uncomfortable wondering all the time if this person is checking him/her out?
Other than women the representatives of the male population don’t have the same rights. We are automatically downsized and insulted as mentally ill calling us homophobic. This is pure discrimination on our moral, ethical, and religious beliefs.
So how to deal with the situation
On the contrary the scream of Hetero groups to repeal the repeal (what a word wrap) would also be contra productive as well. Many good conservative Christians have gay family members. The damage is done and now we have to deal with it. So here is my suggestion as of what can be done now:
- Permission for Heterosexual Soldiers to demand their own showers without slandering them or labeling them as mentally Ill (Homophobe) – they have an opinion and beliefs, and not a sickness
- No gay marriages performed on Military bases unless the United States Supreme Court makes a constitutional amendment on it and declares that rightful under the constitution.
- Marriages should only apply according to State Law of the Military Base Location.
- No special Treatment and no access to Married Couple benefits unless Gay marriage is confirmed under the Constitution.
Take the right to outing and be happy with it.
What has DADT repeal done to the Gay movement?
Well, the entire performance was in my opinion the worse thing Obama, Reid, and Pelosi could have done for the Gay’s rights of acceptance.
The entire procedure performed by President B.H. “Adolf Hitler” Obama, Nancy “Eva Brown” Pelosi, and Harry “Joseph Goebbels” Reid in Corporation with the “Nazi Propaganda ministry” ACLU and other radical Left wing pundits has totally set back the efforts of the gays who are looking for final acceptance.
This country has been built by men and women who started a war against a totalitarian oppressing king because of his attempts to force his will on them.
Do civil rights activists really think now in the 21st Century they can do just the same and get away with it?
Do they really think that forcing laws on the people disrespecting and discriminating their free choice by putting them down and insulting them as radicals and mentally ill makes the very same people more accepting of minorities such as gays or Muslims?
If that’s what you think Obama than you ARE DUMBER THAN MUD.
It is the opposite that is true. The more force politicians put on the people, the more insults they start, and the more discrimination against the majority happens the more likely people will stand up, and start another civil war. The word revolution is now used more than ever and we are not far from it.
And the anger among the people is fermenting more and more and it increases on a daily basis because all those forceful lobbying, those provocative self display of alternative lifestyle (Rainbow parades), insults and putting down people of conservative opinions does not make supporters.
And to the gay people out there – before you cheer in victorious exuberance please take a moment and think if this was not more hurtful to your cause than you would like to admit.
Whatever I personally think about this “Alternative Lifestyle” this entire thing has nothing to do with me and my personal beliefs, this has to do with your rights to do in your own bedroom what you feel free to do as long as it is consensual.
But this radical dictatorial act was not the way to gain what you believe you are entitled too.
MAY GOD BLESS AMERICA
