Traditional Marriage Battle

NEWS: In 31 states the vote for defining marriage as between one man and one woman has been put to the people. In ALL 31 states, the people voted in favor of traditional marriage. The same is not always true when the choice is up to the courts or legislatures.

Now there is movement in the West Virginia Senate to let voters decide whether to approve a constitutional amendment protecting traditional marriage. Under the West Virginia constitution, an amendment must first be passed by the legislature before it can be placed before the state's voters. The resolution states: "Only a union between man and woman is valid or recognized as marriage in West Virginia."

Polls show more than 78% of West Virginia voters want marriage defined that way.

Sodomite activist groups are extremely active and vocal. Today, hundreds of sodomite activists flooded the Kentucky state capitol pushing their agenda. Christians must stand to be counted to counter this.

WHAT YOU CAN DO ABOUT IT: Those in West Virgina can contact their state-level legislators voicing their support for this vote to go before the people. You can find out who your districts' legislator is by clicking here and simply entering your zip code.

Those in the other states should also contact their state and national level legislators voicing their support for traditional marriage. To find out who your legislators are, simple click here and enter your zip code.

President pushing to allow sodomites in military

NEWS: President Obama is pushing for Congress to lift the ban on sodomites being in the military. If this is done it will cause several problems including:
Military members could be showering with those who might view them with sexual interest. (When I was in the service I didn't like the idea of group showers to begin with, but the idea of open sodomites in the showers is far - far worse.)
Overturning the ban will effect the military chaplains who take the Biblical stance against sodomy. They will either be told to go with the state's position, be quiet, or be removed. This is a violation of the 1st Amendment.
Our military will no longer be the place America's families want to send their best and brightest young men and women. Resulting in a weakening of our national security.

WHAT YOU CAN DO ABOUT IT: Contact your members of Congress and urge them to keep this ban in place. You can learn how to contact them by clicking here. Just type in your zip code to learn the names and contact information for your elected officials.

Opportunity to put Bible back into schools!

NEWS: Tennessee's state Board of Education has approved guidelines teaching the Bible in public high schools despite concern that the curriculum could be challenged in court.
Legislation approved in 2008 authorized a course for a "nonsectarian, nonreligious academic study of the Bible" in public schools. The course will teach students about the content of the Bible and its historical context. It's an elective, meaning high schools can choose whether to offer it to students as a social studies credit, and students can decide whether to take it.

WHAT YOU CAN DO ABOUT IT: This same law is now before the Kentucky state legislature (Senate Bill 142). Those in Kentucky can contact their state-level legislators to encourage them to pass this bill. To learn who your legislator is click here and simply enter your zip code. Those in other states can also contact their legislators to ask them to enact the same law.

God says in Isaiah 55:11 "So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it."

The teaching of God's Word will 'NOT RETURN VOID.' By all means, let us take this opportunity to get the Bible back into schools!!!

Islamic group wants Chrisitans to stay quiet

NEWS: The mayor of Lancaster, California, is being criticized for telling residents that their town is a growing Christian community and they should be proud of that.
Mayor R. Rex Parris made the remarks at the end of his annual State of the City address last week.
The Greater Los Angeles area office of the Council on American-Islamic Relations denounced the comments, saying it plans to file a civil rights complaint with the U.S. Justice Dept. Executive director Hussam Ayloush says elected officials shouldn't be using their public positions to impose their religious beliefs. This is exactly the type of absurd claims and threats keeping many Christians from expressing their belief in Christ. The last thing Jesus said was "Go and tell," and I have yet to find any definition of "telling" or expressing pride in something is "imposing" it on anyone.
Mayor Parris told the Los Angeles Times that he has no such intentions and says he won't apologize. Good for him! For his stance, the mayor is now facing harsh criticism, and is up for re-election in April of this year.

WHAT YOU CAN DO ABOUT IT: You can contact Lancaster City Hall and express your support for the stance and courage of Mayor Parris. The phone number is: (661) 723-6000 . If you would like to write a letter of support, the address is:
Lancaster City Hall
44933 N. Fern Avenue
Lancaster CA 93534

You can also contact media in the Lancaster area to express your support for Mayor Parris' words. For the contact information for all the newspapers, radio and TV stations in the area, just click here. I hope many will voice their public support for the mayors pride in Christianity.
