I grew up in one of those Judeo-Christian homes that apparently strike terror in the hearts of the likes of Betty Friedan, Alan Grayson and Kathryn Joyce. My parents never had sex until they got married to each other. Theirs is an enduring...

Can You Be Part-way Pro-life?

It's great to know we aren't alone in reserving our vote for candidates who are 1oo% pro-life (or should I say, 100% against killing babies). Mary Ann Kreitzer, of the Catholic ministry, Les Femmes, www.lesfemmes-thetruth.org (no, I'm not Catholic), introduces a great article by Judie Brown.

"Judie Brown's article below is a bullseye!

"I stopped supporting NRLC years ago.

"When Pat Buchanan ran for president they helped deep-six his candidacy for their "pro-life" Republican Bob Dole. Dole was never pro-life unless you completely gut the word of meaning. His pathetic pandering of viagra shows he is not even a gentleman.

"NRLC has always been willing to wink at abortifacient birth control because they didn't want to take on "contraception." Back in the '70s they blacked out all news on the early rescue movement (sit-ins) which resulted in the reisignation of a friend of mine who was the editor of NRLC News at the time. They have always played it safe and will never endanger their seat at the table with the power-brokers.

"Did Jesus Christ adopt an incremental approach to salvation? These babies that NRLC is willing to abandon belong to HIM. And Bill Frist needs to be opposed by every true pro-lifer. There are some Catholics who are Democrats first and Catholic second. There are some Catholics who are Republican first and Catholic second. Then there are Catholics who don't believe our salvation rests with a political party. Pray and fight and don't support a single politician who is not 100% pro-life. The others will never fail to betray you!

"Pope Benedict XVI stresses that one of the biggest problems today is moral relativism. NRLC is a champion when it comes to excusing pro-abort politicians with elephant tiepins. Their adoption of moral relativism has made them morally irrelevant."

The Republicans have betrayed the most basic rights of millions of Americans: the unborn millions. Republicans have the White House, and a majority of both houses of Congress. If they intend to end abortion, when do they plan to do it? It was a Republican Supreme Court that gave us Roe v. Wade!

If you are looking for a party you can count on to back candidates who are 100% pro-life, check out the Constitution Party. It's the fastest growing third party in the nation. You'll like their platform. You'll love their candidates.

Attempt to Moderate Judicial Immunity Draws Fire From the Press

In light of ongoing abuses of law and justice, in light of rampant corruption and the popular notion that judges are entitled to change or create law, rather than guarantee that the nation adhere to it, it seems time to note a nation-wide project that is gaining momentum.

The Judicial Accountability Initiative Law, or JAIL, for judges, is an appeal for an opportunity to try unjust judges against the law before a grand jury, to determine whether their offenses justify stripping them of their judicial immunity. Once stripped of virtual invincibility, they would have the right to stand trial in a court of law, as any other citizen, for their abuses of the bench.

The initiative reads in part, "No immunity shall extend to any judge of this State for any deliberate violation of law, fraud or conspiracy, intentional violation of due process of law, deliberate disregard of material facts, judicial acts without jurisdiction, blocking of a lawful conclusion of a case, or any deliberate violation of the Constitutions of South Dakota or the United States...". It is in the signature-gathering stage in South Dakota, where it has already drawn adverse attention through a local newspaper. The early response of the people to the campaign seems much more positive.

South Dakota is merely the trial run. The initiative has been drawn up for each of the fifty states, and is ready to be enacted at the federal level as well.

They Shall Not Be Ashamed, but They Shall Speak With the Enemies in the Gate

Ten-year old Joshua Heldreth became a symbol for uncompromising humanity when he risked arrest to bring a cup of water to Terri Schiavo. He has been tried, and sentenced to offer an apology and perform twenty-five hours of community service.

In his gentle, yet firm apology, he continues to symbolize conviction and offers a breath of hope. While his dad denies helping him, his Father does not deny it.

Show Me Thy Faith...

"Show me thy faith by thy works and I shall show thee the inside of a prison." (The Gospel According to the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals)

World Net Daily ran a disturbing article last week about a Chinese Christian (arrested and beaten for holding a Bible study in his home), who was denied asylum in the United States by the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals.

"...Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free...", eh?

Further research showed the horrific logic of the Fifth Circuit. This is a must read! Let me summarize it, but be sure to check it out for yourself.

The Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals has ruled in the case of Xiaodong Li v. Alberto Gonzalez that the Board of Immigration Appeals' decision to deport Li cannot be reversed. Their reasons? What Li suffered, they say, was prosecution for illegal religious activity, and not persecution for his religious beliefs.

What the Fifth Circuit fails to see, is that real religious beliefs are hopelessly linked to religious activity. The two cannot be seperated. Faith without works is dead.

Beating and shocking an accused man with an electric baton before he has been tried and convicted isn't prosecution either, but I guess according to the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals, it is.

If this court were transported to 1608 England, under King James, it would have had the pilgrims beaten and thrown in prison! If the pilgrims came to the New World to find refuge today, they would be deported- because after all, England did allow some religious activity within the king's church, and the little Bible study the pilgrims were holding in their homes was against the law.
