Iowa says, "Don't pray in Jesus' name"

NEWS: Despite the First Amendment to the Constitution, stating that there shall be no laws prohibiting the free exercise of religion or abridging the freedom of speech, the State of Iowa has done so.
After Pastor Brad Cranston of Heritage Baptist Church in Burlington, Iowa, prayed in Jesus name before the Iowa House of Representatives, a memo was sent to the lawmakers stating that all prayers are to be "non-denominational and non-political."
Pastor Cranston did not pray "in the name of the Baptist" he prayed "in the name of Jesus" so the "non-denominational" order can mean simply "DON'T PRAY IN JESUS NAME!"
How absurd! It's unconstitutional to issue an order like this- therefore, illegal. Furthermore, whoever sent this memo is assuming authority not given to them. Only the legislature can pass laws, not the author of some memo. Here we have a classic example of the "They Department" in action. The "They Department" is often quoted, but never found.
The memo also said that, 'Prayers shall be submitted in advance." Why require prayers in advance unless there is consideration of censoring a prayer or refusal to allow someone to pray at all?

WHAT YOU CAN DO ABOUT IT: You can take some or all of the following actions
  • You can call, write, or e-mail the members of the Iowa House of Representatives. To find their contact information click here then click on the representatives name.
  • You can contact Iowa Governor Chet Culver and ask for his public support in protesting this Constitutional violation. His office number is (515) 281-5211. Or you can write: "Office of the Governor & Lt. Governor State Capitol 1007 East Grand Ave. Des Moines, Iowa 50319.

  • You can refuse to allow the "They Department" to take away our Constitutional right to pray in Jesus name ANYWHERE.
  • You can write a note of encouragement to Pastor Cranston. The church's address is:

Can we stop abortion? - YES

NEWS: Jan. 22 will be the 37th annual "March for Life." In 2002 more than 100,000 people met in Washington D.C. for this annual protest against abortion. The number of Americans participating in this march grows each year, with more than 200,000 marching last year. Yet, we heard nothing of this massive protest on the main-stream media! More than 50 million babies have been killed by abortion since Roe v. Wade. After reaching a high of over 1.6 million in 1990, the number of abortions annually performed in the U.S. has dropped back to levels not seen since the late 1970s. Momentum against abortion continues to grow and stopping the slaughter is achievable.

WHAT YOU CAN DO ABOUT IT: Let those in Washington know you are one of the ever-growning numbers of Americans against abortion. You can learn how to contact your representatives in Congress by clicking here. If you are unable to make it to the annual march in D.C. then you can participate in the "Virtual March for Life" by clicking here.

Bluegrass State Keeps God's Law on display

NEWS: In Grayson County, Kentucky an appeals court decided Thursday in favor of keeping a Ten Commandments display. The Grayson County case began in 2002 when the American Civil Liberties Union filed suit against the county. It is doubted that the ACLU will appeal the decision to the U.S. Supreme Court because in the last four cases, appeals courts have ruled against the ACLU. The ACLU has not won a Ten Commandments case at the appeals level since 2005.

The Sixth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled on Thursday that it passes constitutional muster. Grayson County Judge-Executive Gary Logsdon thanked God for the return of the Commandments as part of the display of historical documents.
WHAT YOU CAN DO ABOUT IT: This eight year legal battle ending in victory shows us that battles may be long and hard, but we shouldn't give up. What you can do with this item of news is praise The Father, and take heart that the grass-roots movement to return our nation to God is a battle worth fighting and can be won. But it will only be won if we stand up to be counted.

Freedom OF religion not FROM religion

NEWS: The Texas Board of Education is holding public hearings and will vote this week on the content of textbooks, which will impact many other states that follow Texas' lead.

One of the major problems is a push by a group that wants to censor religious information regarding historical figures from textbooks. Our country has a rich religious heritage, and the the faith of our founding fathers had a tremendous impact on our government and law. To teach otherwise is educational neglect. This is another example of those who are trying to re-write our history and remove everything to do with God.

Initial votes on the textbooks will be conducted this week, and a final vote will be tallied in two months. Those decisions will establish textbook content for the state for the next ten years as other states will purchase and use those same textbooks.

WHAT YOU CAN DO ABOUT IT: Attend your local school board meetings and make your voice heard to keep this from happening. Those in Texas should contact the Board of Education to voice their objections. We must be active to ensure American children can still learn about the true history of our nation - a history founded upon our national motto: In God We Trust.

NEWS: Rep. Michael Burgess (R-TX) has introduced a resolution in the US Congress to remove Kevin Jennings from his position as the "Safe School Czar" in the US Dept. of Education.
