NEWS: Two years ago, Governor Beshear pushed for an amendment to the Kentucky Constitution to allow for expanding gambling (slot machines) in our state, the votes failed for that. During the last legislative session, it was tried to put this under the umbrella of the lottery. The votes failed for that too. Now this isn't coming up for a vote at all; it's just being put in place without the voters or General Assembly getting to say anything about it. The slot machines, called "Instant Racing," are where gamblers put money in a machine and bet on films of old horse races. It is a back-door attempt to do what the gambling industry failed to convince legislators to do during the last General Assembly session: allow wealthy horse tracks to bypass the Kentucky Constitution.
The Family Foundation of Kentucky has filed a brief in Franklin Circuit Court to intervine in what it calls a "one-sided case" filed by several horse tacts that would expand gamling byond current limits. This way of incrasing the state's revenue violates Biblical principles. (See Proverbs 22:16; 28:22; 11:28.)

WHAT YOU CAN DO ABOUT IT: You can do two things: 1) You can contact the Family Foundation of Kentucky and help them in their fight against expanded gambling. 2) You can contact your State-level legislators and tell them to take action to stop this violation of the State Constitution.

Boycott Sears!

NEWS: Sears is now in the pornography business. The retail giant is now selling giant posters of nudity and sexual activity on its website. Unless Sears hears from you, they will continue to sell pornography and it will find it's way into the stores, pushing more of this in front of our families.

WHAT YOU CAN DO ABOUT IT: You can do two things. 1-Stop shopping at Sears until the store removes these items. 2-Contact Sears and let them know you are boycotting them for this reason. When sales drop it is one thing, but if they know the reason why, it has a far greater impact. Their e-mail address is: To call, the phone number is: 1-800-549-4505. To write the address is:

Kagan: anti-military, anti-family, anti-homeschooling

NEWS: Elena Kagan's nomination to the U.S. Supreme Court will soon be before the full U.S. Senate. When clerking for Justice Thurgood Marshall during a Supreme Court case where an Ohio family wanted to homeschool their child she tried to get the ruling against the parents by writing, that the parents are "self-described born-again Christians who adhere to a literal interpretation of the Bible and have little sympathy with the secular world." In addition, in trying to persuade against the Christian parents right to homeschool she wrote: "This burden on religious freedom is slight, and the interest of the state is great."

In addition to her anti-homeschooling stance she also kicked military recruiters off of campus when she was a university president, and has called the Defense of Marriage Act "abhorrent." In her hearings she also said she doesn't believe in "natural rights" referring to the Declaration of Independence which says that"all men are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights..."

WHAT YOU CAN DO ABOUT IT: To stop this radical left-wing liberal from getting a lifetime appointment to the Supreme Court you must contact your Senators in Washington D.C. before her nomination is put to a vote. Let them know if they vote for her that you will not be voting for them. Click here for your Senator's contact information.
