Against God's Word

NEWS: Kentucky Governor Steve Beshear has called for a special legislative session convening this week. In addition to hammering out a state budget, the Governor tacked on a provision for a law to be passed allowing alcohol sampling licenses. This is so bourbon can be served at the World Equestrian Games this fall and from now on throughout the entire state.

Currently, the bourbon industry can only provide free samples on their own properties. Gov. Beshear said that, "this will have a permanent impact on our state." I agree, though for very different reasons. He touts that giving away free liquor samples is good for tourism, but what does the Bible say about giving alcohol away? "Woe unto him that giveth his neighbour drink, that puttest thy bottle to him..." - Habakkuk 2:15

WHAT YOU CAN DO ABOUT IT: We can stand up for God's Law and not for man's law just to make money. This law will be voted on or before Friday, May 28. Before then, you can leave a message for your legislators expressing opposition to this expansion of alcohol. To learn who your state-level Senator and Representative are just click here.

NEWS: President Obama has nominated Solicitor General Elena Kagan to the United States Supreme Court. She is part of the Department of Justice that filed a brief which declared "this Administration does not support DOMA (Defense of Marriage Act) as a matter of policy [and] believes that it is discriminatory."

When she was dean of the Harvard Law School, she threw military recruiters off campus.

Her nomination ought to be rejected on these grounds alone. In addition, she has NEVER served as a judge - so why should she serve on the highest court in the land?!

WHAT CAN YOU DO ABOUT IT: The Senate must approve Supreme Court nominations; you can contact your Senator to encourage them to vote no to this inexperienced judge and promoter of the radical homosexual agenda. To learn who your Senators are, click here and select your state.

One for the Good Guys!

NEWS: With all the negative news these days, I am especially glad to report a victory. This is a battle won against the pornography industry. "Movie Gallery," at one time the second largest video outlet chain in America, is closing down. This chain was boycotted by many Christians due to the store's distribution of pornographic movies.
WHAT YOU CAN DO ABOUT IT: Those who are taking action by participating in such boycotts can take some of the credit for stopping this flow pornography. Let this victory be a source of encouragement to all of us to be active and know that our efforts are making a difference!
