“…In 2006 Vanessa Willock asked Elaine and Jonathan Huguenin, owners of Elane Photography, to photograph a same-sex “commitment ceremony” in the town of Taos.
Huguenin and her husband declined the job because their Christian beliefs were in conflict with the message communicated by the ceremony.
Willock found another photographer at a cheaper price but nevertheless filed a complaint with the New Mexico Human Rights Commission accusing Elane Photography of discrimination based on sexual orientation. She was later found guilty and ordered to pay thousands of dollars in fines.
RENTON, N.J. — Gov. Chris Christie signed a bill Monday barring licensed therapists from trying to turn gay teenagers straight, making New Jersey the second state to ban so-called conversion therapy, along with California.
The bill passed both houses of the New Jersey Legislature with bipartisan support in June. Assemblyman Tim Eustace, who sponsored the bill and is openly gay, described the therapy as “an insidious form of child abuse.”
“SALEM, MO – Today, August 22, 2013, Congressman Jason Smith announced the Park Service has reversed course and will no longer require permits for Baptisms on riverways in the Ozark National Forest. Since 2006, the Park Service has required permits for riverway baptisms.
“Today’s decision by the Park Service is a victory for common sense. The notion that permits would be required for baptisms on our riverways is ridiculous,” said Smith. “I appreciate Superintendent Bill Black’s quick response to my request to rescind the permit requirement and I want to continue working with him and the folks who live along the rivers to preserve our traditions and rural way of life.”
“Meditation is not just for new-agey folks sitting in the lotus position chanting “om.” Increasingly, mainstream medicine is waking up to the healing powers of daily meditation, with hospitals opening integrative medicine programs that use mindful and transcendental meditation and guided imagery, alongside traditional treatments. Research shows that meditation reduces stress, blood pressure and pain, improves attention span and the ability to focus and may even stimulate new brain cell growth. We checked with some local doctors to see why they’ve become big proponents of meditation…”

“On Saturday afternoon, Yale hosted a “sensitivity training” in which students were asked to consider topics such as bestiality, incest, and accepting money…Event director Giuliana Berry ’14 told Campus Reform in an interview on Monday that the workshop was brought to campus to teach students not to automatically judge people who may have engaged in these sorts of activities, but rather to respond with ‘understanding’ and ‘compassion’…”
“…In a chamber controlled by a two-thirds Republican majority, the legislation is unlikely to advance or even get a hearing. The bill’s sponsor said yesterday that he knows Missouri is a very conservative state, but he still wants a dialogue on safety ‘…I am serious about some kind of control of weaponry. I am a realist, however, and am willing to accept some compromise,” said Rep. Rory Ellinger, D-St. Louis…Even though the prospects of passage are slim, GOP lawmakers are still criticizing the bill. “The only way this bill will pass is if a hammer and sickle is sewn onto Old Glory,” tweeted Rep. Caleb Jones, R-California…”
For centuries there has been a popular prophecy that the next pope will be the last, and will lead Rome astray. I remember studying this when I first became a Christian. At the time, I saw it as a distraction from exposing the pope at the time as being antichristian and dangerous.
“Pope Benedict XVI Resignation: Papal Tenure Dogged with Sex Abuse Scandals…In 2005, Pope Benedict was personally accused of being involved in a cover-up of child sex abuse. He was said to have “obstructed justice” after it was found he issued an order to carry out investigations into child sex abuse in secret. He made the order in a confidential letter sent to every Catholic bishop in May 2001…In 2011, victims of sex abuse by Catholic priests called for Pope Benedict to be tried for crimes against humanity at the international criminal court…More recently, Pope Benedict said abuse within the church was a “mystery”, saying he could not understand why church officials committed sex crimes against vulnerable children…”
(International Business Times)
Dorner was an advocate of gun-control, homosexuality, women in combat, and so-called liberal media. He also confessed to being severely depressed:
“If possible, I want my brain preserved for science/research to study the effects of severe depression on an individual’s brain.”
With his humanist views, it is reasonable to assume that he was being “treated” for his depression with SSRIs (dangerous psychiatric drugs). The total blackout in the mainstream media in regard to this issue of drugs in all of these violent murders (school shootings, etc.), is amazing. They are obviously funded by these big pharmaceutical companies, and the leaders in the media share the agenda to “medicate” everyone (i.e., Brave New World).
As a Christian preacher, I have seen police corruption. I have seen good policemen, and corrupt ones. I have seen good ones rebuke corrupt ones, and refuse to go along with their evil. From reading his “manifesto,” it is likely that Christopher Dorner witnessed some real corruption and injustice that filled him with rage. And then, when you add his love for ungodly, violent movies, designed to pour gas on the flames of resentment, it makes for a dangerous mix.
In his manifesto, Christopher Dorner has written words of support and encouragement for women in combat, as well as for gays, etc. Where are the headlines linking these views with his current behavior? If he had written that he was against these liberal dreams, the humanist media would have used it as propaganda to demonize Christian or conservative views.
Christopher Dorner has praised the movie “Django Unchained.” The Bible teaches that “evil communications corrupt good manners.” How many others will lose their minds in rage, at real or imagined grievances? Those who incite others to violence and victimization, should be severely exposed and rebuked. How many in the media will downplay this connection? Would it be downplayed if Dorner was a fan of the Bible?
In his manifesto, alleged murderer Christopher Dorner has written that he hopes Westboro Baptist Church will roast in fire. He has certainly brought the propaganda, hook, line and sinker. Some of us doubt that Westboro Baptist Church is anything other than Democratic liberals acting in order to get rid of what is left of the Bill of Rights as it relates to Christian speech against homosexuals. Nevertheless, how would the humanist media have reported the situation if Dorner had been a fan of Westboro?
In his manifesto, Christopher Dorner has praised Ellen Degeneres, saying that she helped open his eyes. Where are the headlines linking him to her? What if he had written that a fundamentalist Christian had opened his eyes? We know how the humanist media would have responded!

“…While the Dixons were away in August 2010 when the Missouri Milk Board (MMB) called to say there was potential Listeria contamination – the California Department of Food and Agriculture had gotten the cheese from the Rawesome Food raid some 55 days earlier. Inspector Don Falls said they should be back up in a couple days but his attitude turned cold when he talked to the FDA. Then the FDA leaked a nationwide recall - of all the cheese - which to this day has never been tested…The agencies ordered it all dumped and destroyed, but the Dixons refused and fought to the end – for freedom – for the rest of us…The FDA and Milk Board would not and will never allow them to resume – how is this able to happen?…
One author described it as a “Death by Bureaucracy” saying: Very few people realize the FDA has an armed and very military aspect. They showed up at Morningland in camouflage and made a lovely impression on those able to be at the unveiling of the future of food safety ‘FDA style’…Pete Kennedy, president of Farm-to-Consumer Legal Defense Fund wrote: ‘The Morningland case was about FDA’s agenda to restrict access to raw dairy products with the eventual goal of banning them. The agency doesn’t hesitate in sacrificing a business like the Dixons’ in order to move its agenda along’….”
“I will speak in more detail to what we’re going to go ahead and propose later in the week. But I’m confident that there are some steps that we can take that don’t require legislation and that are within my authority as president, and where you get a step that, has the opportunity to reduce the possibility of gun violence, then I want to go ahead and take it.”

“The mainstream media will get around to covering abortion this month as the nation marks 40 years of legalized abortion for any reason throughout pregnancy via Roe v Wade. Time magazine has released its issue, which comes to a shocking conclusion. The cover article makes the case that the pro-abortion side is losing the abortion debate, saying, “40 Years Ago, Abortion Rights Activists Won an Epic Victory With Roe v. Wade. They’re been losing ever since.’…”
Until the daily butcher of babies in the womb ceases, abortion activists may be said to be winning. And we shudder to realize that God will require this blood upon the nation.

“An inmate in the Arapahoe County detention center, Steven Unruh, has been claiming that he had hours long conversations with the alleged Colorado movie theater shooter James Holmes, while in prison. In his latest claims, Unruh says the 24-year-old said he was brainwashed by his psychiatrist to kill. Unruh, who spoke to the Denver Westword, said he had a four-hour long conversation with Holmes. “He felt like he was in a video game,” Unruh said according to the Huffington Post. Holmes has not yet entered a plea, but it general assumption that he is likely to plead “not guilty” by reason of insanity. Holmes is currently being held at the Arapahoe County Detention Center…”

Since psych meds are linked to most school shootings, it is no surprise that friends and neighbors of the Lanzas claim that Adam was “on medication.” WND reports:
“On CBS’s “60 Minutes” Sunday, Mark and Louise Tambascio, friends of the shooter’s mother, Nancy Lanza, said Adam Lanza was being medicated for Asperger’s.
““I know [Adam Lanza] was on medication and everything, but she homeschooled him at home cause he couldn’t deal with the school classes sometimes,” Louise Tambascio told CBS reporter Scott Pelley. “So she just homeschooled Adam at that home. And that was her life.”
In 1997, Luke Woodham bludgeoned his mother. Jeffrey Pyne (a former Michigan high school valedictorian) was recently found guilty for bludgeoning his mother. A homeowner in Houston was recently found bludgeoned with a blunt object. In Edinburgh, two teens were found guilty of killing their friend with a baseball bat. The list is endless. How long can we as a society continue to allow baseball bats and hammers and blunt objects? We are not living in the days of Leave It To Beaver. We are living at a time when only licensed carpenters and licensed baseball players should be permitted to own bats and hammers. It is clear that today, houses are filled with baseball bats. But they are not being used for sports and fun. They are under beds, behind curtains, in closets, behind doors, etc. They are used as self-defense in case of home invasion. And these assault bats are ending up in the hands of teenagers and troubled people. Where are the responsible citizens? Do you want to be the one who allows these assault bats and assault hammers to continue in the hands of average citizens? They are not needed for self-defense. The police are there for that. Of course, they continually stress that they have no legal responsibility to defend your life. But they will get to your house as quickly as possible. Keep your cell phone charged and make sure you dial 911 quickly. Then do not resist your invader. It might be dangerous. And whatever you do, turn in your assault bat and assault hammers. If these end up in the wrong hands, people can die.
After trying to suggest that the choice to home-school, or the survivalist-prepper mentality of Adam Lanza’s mother, is somehow involved in the choices of that wicked murderer (both a myth, perpetuated by the Humanist-propaganda media), it has now come out that Laza was a Satanist! A high school classmate of Adam Lanza said he had an online page worshiping the devil.
As an increasing number of parents are now asking themselves the sanity of allowing their children to attend public school (where there are no teachers or principals with guns, and the police will be sure to arrive AFTER the murder of dozens or more children), the liberal, Humanist media is busy with damage control. Otherwise, parents may opt for homeschooling, and this could set back their “progressive,” socialist agenda, by decades. It may even result in a revival of traditional family values, etc. Mothers may decide to stay at home from career seeking to educate their children. This would be a terrible blow to feminism. Therefore, the answer is to “demonize” home-schooling by associating the murderer with “home-schooling” in article titles.
“NEWTOWN, Conn. – The gunman who slaughtered 20 children and six adults at a Connecticut elementary school may have snapped because his mother was planning to commit him to a psychiatric facility, according to a lifelong resident of the area who was familiar with the killer’s family and several of the victims’ families.
Adam Lanza, 20, targeted Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown after killing his mother early Friday because he believed she loved the school “more than she loved him,” said Joshua Flashman, 25, who grew up not far from where the shooting took place. Flashman, a U.S. Marine, is the son of a pastor at an area church where many of the victims’ families worship.
“London: Adam Lanza, the gunman who massacred nearly 20 kids in a shooting spree in a Connecticut school, was mentally ill, aggressive and had an unhealthy obsession for violent computer games…According to express.co.uk, his favourite video game was said to be a shockingly violent fantasy war game called Dynasty Warriors, which is thought to have given him inspiration to act on his darkest thoughts…”
Other news sites are reporting that he played Call of Duty (a violent war game) before his murderous rampage.
“Friends say gunman’s mother was ‘definitely not a survivalist’- Friends of Nancy Lanza have told NBC News’s Today show the reports of her as an extremist following her son’s shooting rampage are wildly at odds with the cultured mother-of-two they knew. They confirmed she introduced her two sons to guns, but said it was in an attempt to teach them a “sense of responsibility’….”
“School carnage: Blame church, not God or guns: Exclusive: William J. Murray reveals only way to turn society from violent, destructive path (http://www.wnd.com/2012/12/newtown-carnage-blame-church-not-god-or-guns/ )…If an individual is not afraid of the wrath of God, it is impossible to cause him to fear the justice of the state… The words “hell” and “sin” will very likely not be used in any sermons associated with the massacre…the greatest villain is a church that has accepted the world’s view that hell does not await evildoers. With a weak message from a weak church, there is no restraint or lessening of the violence. The shooting at Newtown was immediately followed by a shooting at a Birmingham, Ala., hospital and a Las Vegas hotel. Across the country, there are more than 16,000 murders each year. Of those, two-thirds are committed with guns. One in three murders is a very personal, vile act of evil using a knife, a blunt instrument or bare hands. And the response of the church to this violence is ‘God loves you. Have a nice day’…
My mother, atheist Madalyn Murray O’Hair, fought to make the public schools the armed camps they are today by removing prayer, the recognition of the authority of God. In 1962 and 1963, I was attending an all-boys public high school in downtown Baltimore, Md. The school was a magnet school before the term even existed and was intended to prepare young men for college, majoring in science and engineering…The presence of the authority of God, vested in the teachers by His recognition every morning, was reinforced by the churches and the families of the students…In the vast majority of America’s public schools, the authority of God has been replaced with the authority of the iron fist of government. Morals?
Without the authority of God, there are no morals, and none are taught in the public schools today. The ethics that are taught are situational, perhaps the same situational ethics that led to the logic that caused the tragic shootings in Newtown. This condition exists in the schools and the society in general because of a failed church that is splintered and weak. A large advertising sign near my home reads, “A church for those who don’t like church.” Translation: “No condemnation of sin here – we have coffee latte and great music’…revival will not come from feel-good, coffeehouse sermons that do not call sin what it is…The fear of an angry and vengeful God was far more likely to have stopped the shootings in Newtown than the warm voice of a psychologist or the soothing feeling of drugs…”
“St. Louis County Police Chief Tim Fitch says it is time to talk about arming civilian school personnel following Friday’s massacre in Newtown, Connecticut, comparing it to arming airline pilots after September 11, 2001. ‘I see it no differently,’ he said. ‘Pilots have been armed now for many many years, we’ve not had another hijacking and the issue is, for the bad guy, he doesn’t know which airplane he’s getting on, if the pilot is armed or not.’ Fitch said the killing will not be stopped by legislation or laws. ‘If there’s somebody that’s really hellbent on doing something like this, they’re not going to care what the law is’….Concerning the possibility of gun control, Fitch said “it’s just not going to happen,” and called for an increased focus on mental health instead…”
It is reported that Westboro Baptist is planning on picketing the Sandy Hook school where so many little children have been shot. Too many Americans will actually believe that this church is for real. They will actually fall for the propaganda. The truth of the matter is that this is all a stunt. Liberal Humanists are dressing as Fundamental Christians to show up and be as hateful and disgusting as they can be, so that all of the Hollywood stereotypes will be confirmed in the minds of people. The end aim is to abolish the First and Second Amendments! It excites gullible people in emotional situations to scream to the government to PLEASE prohibit free speech and take away all the guns, even from good people!
The Drudge Report has linked a headline from the Daily Mail. The Mail’s headline reads: “Exclusive: Gunman’s ‘survivalist’ mother was obsessed with guns and stockpiled supplies as she prepared for economic collapse…”
It also appears she had curly hair. This is all wicked propaganda. Let the Mail report the number of government officials around the world who have underground communities and their “stockpile” of food and supplies.
The Mail goes on to mention the fact that the killer was “home-schooled.” Yet, it reports that he graduated, and was known by students. When was he supposedly “home-schooled.” This is all liberal humanist spewing their trash at an emotional time.
Catherine Urso reported that her college-age son knew the killer and remembered him for his alternative lifestyle, which included computer gaming parties: “He just said he was very thin, very remote and was one of the goths.”
I am quite sure that when the types of games he enjoyed are finally mentioned, it will be found that they were gory and violent, and involved shooting people, torture, etc.
This news confirms my previous posts concerning this tragedy. Now let’s wait to see if he was on psychotropics.
With all the carnage from violence in our world, it’s still almost impossible to believe that a mass knifing in a primary school could happen (a knife-man injured 22 children and one adult outside a school in China on Friday, in the latest of a series of attacks at Chinese schools and kindergartens). It has come to that. Not even kindergarteners learning their A,B,Cs of humanism are safe. We heard after Columbine that it was too soon to talk about making laws prohibiting the type of humanistic “death education” in Colorado schools; and any talk about even reproving Hollywood for the violent gore that is served up to children as entertainment (or the insanity of Big Pharma making billions pushing dangerous, mind-altering drugs on vulnerable, confused people) was ridiculed. We heard it after Virginia Tech. After Tucson and Aurora and Oak Creek. And now we are hearing it again. Any attempt to free our society from the consequences of humanist values and propaganda is met with emotional shouting and resistance. But just think of the precious children that have been killed in these schools. And just think of the millions of babies that have been killed in the wombs of their mothers by abortion. And these humanists are pushing to murder these babies at even later periods. For every day we wait, hundreds (if not thousands) of more people are murdered in the womb by abortion doctors. Thousands of elderly people are murdered by morphine (or dehydration) “for their own good” by this humanist value system. Today, many of them were precious infants, resting safe and secure in the wombs of their mothers, only to die at the hands of a dark, dangerous value system. President Obama sent his heartfelt condolences to the families in Newtown. Yet, he has advocated partial birth abortion! Where is the sympathy for millions of babies? The country needs him to send a bill to Congress to fix this problem. Calling for ‘meaningful action’ is not enough. We need immediate action. We have heard all the rhetoric before. What we have not seen is leadership – not from the White House and not from Congress. That must end today. This is a national tragedy and it demands a national response. My deepest sympathies are with the families of all those affected, and my determination to stop this madness is stronger than ever. We must – I repeat – we must have strong leadership to pass some sane laws (and remove those that are foolish). We must take action to free parents from being forced to send their children to public schools – schools which Charles Potter (the famous Humanist) called state-funded churches of humanism (see “Humanism: A New Religion”, 1930). For those who choose to attend these indoctrination centers, we must work to free students from dangerous, “death education.” We must work to free people from the grips of Big Pharma, and dangerous psychotropic drugs. Leaders must speak out against Hollywood violence. And we must take action against the insane, liberalism that turns these schools into places where mass murderers can freely kill innocent children without being shot and stopped by an armed principal or teacher. We need these liberals to remember that on the morning of October 1, 1997, Luke Woodham fatally stabbed and bludgeoned his mother. He did not shoot her with a gun. He then drove to Pearl High School and murdered many people. He was about to drive to the Junior High School when assistant principal Joel Myrick retrieved a .45 pistol from the glove compartment of his truck and stopped further bloodshed. A gun stopped the mass murder of children. Yet, a weighty object, a knife, and a car, were all used to commit mass murder. It is clear that liberal thinking is indeed insane, and it must be reproved at this time.
In the face of these continued tragedies, people are looking for answers. I will give you the answers, straight from the Bible:
1. First, blame the murderers. The Bible teaches that these days will be as the days of Noah before the flood (Mt. 24:37). In those early days, the earth was filled with violence (Gen. 6:11). The Bible assures us that these present days will also be filled with violence (Rev. 9:21).
Let’s see: Obama is re-elected. America can’t even get a Neo-Con elected. It must have its Socialism in the raw. Colorado and Washington legalized marijuana – for recreational use. Maryland and Maine became the first states to approve same-sex marriage by popular vote. Physician assisted suicide almost won in Massachusetts. That is scary. It was rejected by only 51% of voters. Wisconsin elects America’s first openly Sodomite Senator. California defeated a measure to label GMO foods. Imagine that. Californians would rather not know that their food has been genetically modified to tolerate weed killers! Get ready for more judgment America. You have allowed a bunch of fools to lead the country into the sewer. Hell is not far behind:
Romney has now conceded a victory for Obama (at least on the basis of electoral votes). Mainstream Republicans are to blame – including the “Sean Hannity – Rush Limbaugh” types. Unwilling to get behind a candidate that could actually pull voters from both sides, mainstream Republicans (and “Christians”), once again went mad for the “lesser of two evils” (even pretending that Romney was conservative in his values), and they adopted a candidate that many Tea Party, and Constitutionalists could not in good conscience support. And by adopting a candidate that was not much different from Obama on core issues – they insured that Obama would remain in office. They alienated the pro-liberty, pro-Constitution element in their party, not realizing it had power to draw from both sides (at least on the issue of civil liberty).
In 2005, all 13 hotel-casinos on the coast of Mississippi were destroyed or damaged by hurricane Katrina. New Orleans was wrecked and flooded. Now, in 2012, Atlantic City (another major gambling center) is under water and devastated:
Hurricane Sandy silences Atlantic City’s casinos:
“Hurricane Sandy has silenced the thousands of slot machines and high-rollers who normally crowd the black jack and roulette tables of Atlantic City…The storm that swept up the East Coast of the United States on Monday made landfall near Atlantic City, ripping up several blocks of its famous boardwalk and tearing roofing off casinos and hotels. Atlantic City’s dozen casinos were shuttered on Tuesday as owners assessed damage to an already ailing gambling business that for decades has defined this New Jersey tourist destination…”
Excerpts from the book, Not the End of the World: A Defense of Biblical Literalism, by Joey Faust:
“In the 1990s, I wrote in my newsletter (which was posted on our website at the time), a two-part article titled, The Year 2000: Significant, Scary – But Not the End of the World. Another article I wrote during the same period was titled, How to Prepare for Y2K. In these articles I argued that the world would not end in the year 2000; but I warned that there would be many calamities, hurricanes, earthquakes, etc., at increasing frequencies in the years that followed. This was based on the plain prophecies of the Bible.
