Cultural Erosion and the *Legality* of Marriage

In a report issued yesterday by the New York Times, several *prominent* Republicans signed a legal brief in support of gay marriage. This includes four former Governors, two members of Congress, and several advisers to former President George W. Bush.

This move continues to shed light upon the fact that those on The Hill are completely out of touch with the American people. While the gay community has been manipulated by mainstream media in to a big hurrah as a victory for gay rights, they are ignoring the fact that this only further enslaves them. They are now caught in the snare that the heterosexual community has been subject to: a government mandate on the institution of marriage.

Last time I checked, marriage was not an illegal act, but a biblical concept. Lets take a look. From freedictionary:

li·cense
(lsns)

n.

1. a. Official or legal permission to do or own a specified thing. See Synonyms at permission.

b. A document, plate, or tag that is issued as proof of official or legal permission: a driver’s license.
2. Deviation from normal rules, practices, or methods in order to achieve a certain end or effect.
3. Latitude of action, especially in behavior or speech. See Synonyms at freedom.

4. a. Lack of due restraint; excessive freedom: “When liberty becomes license, dictatorship is near” (Will Durant).

b. Heedlessness for the precepts of proper behavior; licentiousness.

tr.v.li·censed, li·cens·ing, li·cens·es

1. To give or yield permission to or for.
2. To grant a license to or for; authorize. See Synonyms at authorize.
Permission. Since when does one need permission to do something which is protected by their religious freedom? Freedom. Freedom of what? The freedom to make your own choice…or is it the government’s job to issue approval? Authorize. Since when does the government hold authority over a biblical concept?
Let’s take a look at Merriam-Webster:
li·cense

noun \ˈlī-sən(t)s\

1 a: permission to act  b: freedom of action

2 a: a permission granted by competent authority to engage in a business or occupation or in an activity otherwise unlawful
b: a document, plate, or tag evidencing a license granted
c: a grant by the holder of a copyright or patent to another of any of the rights embodied in the copyright or patent short of an assignment of all rights
3 a: freedom that allows or is used with irresponsibility
b: disregard for standards of personal conduct :licentiousness
4 deviation from fact, form, or rule by an artist or writer for the sake of the effect gained
What? “An activity otherwise unlawful”? Yes, the power the government has impressed upon the church has deemed it illegal for anyone to marry, gay or straight, within a church without permission from the State to do what is otherwise unlawful, irresponsible, with  disregard for standards of personal conduct, and is a deviation from normal rules, practices, or methods. And there you have it, the act of marriage has now become subject to criminal activity unless a government official decides that it in your best interest to grant your request. Sounds like freedom, eh?
In 1999, while planning my wedding, we were specifically told by the priest that it was illegal for the church to perform the ceremonial rite of marriage. When pressed, he further responded that no church would perform such as it would jeopardize the church’s tax-exempt status. So, it seems their hands were tied as well.
This is where the government first really screwed the homosexual community, knowing at the time that churches would not perform weddings to those of the same-sex as it violated their belief system, bound churches pretty much by extortion. With the signing of this brief, it now looks as though the gay community is now bound too.
A little food for thought from my dear friend Scott Boston:

I don’t think the Government should tell Churches who to marry.

I also don’t think the Government should tell Churches who they shouldn’t marry.
If a church says that gay marriage is in violation with its beliefs and tenets of its faith then I have no problem with that church not performing that rite.
If a gay couple can find a church that wants to marry them, more power to them.
If you go to the justice of the peace, I think you should get a civil union no matter who you are since it is a civil and not a religious institution.
The reason that Government got involved in marriage was because progressives who believed in eugenics wanted to make sure that blacks and whites could not intermarry and dilute the white race.
Bingo.
Instead, both sides in Washington are now perpetuating more big-government by placing further restrictions on citizens. This is not a win for gay marriage, it is a further push toward slavery. We now have one more notch on the post of government control.
As the GOP continues to erode, so will society and American culture. From stixblog:
The slow decay of morality is the basis of the socialist movement.  It makes the people look to the State instead of Community and Religion for direction.
I do not wear my religion on my sleeve, but the total disregard for Religious Liberty is eroding, and is going into overtime with Obama.
It was mentioned to me that in a lot of ways, violent revolution would be easier than the battle that we and our children are about to face in the next generation.
I just finished The Harbinger at book club. It’s a very interesting read about an ancient biblical prophecy that foretells our collapse.
This isn’t a fight that our children will fight.  It’s ramping up to befall America in just a few short years. Things will continue to get worse as organizations and institutions fall into disarray, the GOP is there now.
Turning back to God is the only answer.
With that said, this is precisely where America stands at this moment:
The question is, will we continue to slam the door, or will we finally look to see what is on the other side before it’s too late?

Meteor Impacts in Russia Injuring Over 1000

Amazing. The MSM focuses on an asteroid projected to completely miss Earth tonight, yet ignores an actual noteworthy event.
A meteor, without warning, entered the Earth’s atmosphere early this morning, crashing to the groud at 33,000 MPH in the Urals region, east of Moscow, Russia. Miraculously, only an estimated 1000 people have been initially reported as injured, 5 critically.

Only mother nature; captivating, spectacular, and horrifying all at once.

This meteor is said to be no part of the MSM’s ZOMG Apocalypse Now! asteroid, but merely coincidence in these two events occurring nearly simultaneously, according to Sky News.

A meteor streaks across the sky in central Russia causing loud explosions and injuring hundreds of people.

More than 500 people have been injured after a meteor strike in central Russia, the country’s interior ministry said.

Fragments of at least one meteorite – the weight of a double-decker bus – were seen falling from the sky in the Chelyabinsk region at around 9am local time, around 1,500km east of Moscow.

Russia’s Ministry of Emergencies said 524 people have been injured of which 82 are children. Two people are in intensive care while another 32 adults and 12 children are being treated in hospital.

Many were hurt by flying glass as windows were blown in. Witnesses described feeling a pressure wave and hearing explosions overhead as the object hurtled to earth.

The Russian Academy of Sciences estimates the meteor weighed about 10 tonnes and entered the Earth’s atmosphere at a speed of at least 33,000mph – 15 times the speed of a rifle bullet – and shattered up to 32 miles above ground.

Meteors typically cause sizeable sonic booms when they enter the atmosphere because they are travelling much faster than the speed of sound.

The defence ministry said it had identified a six metre crater near a lake in this region and has sent soldiers to the site of the impact.

The emergencies ministry said that 20,000 rescue workers had been dispatched to help the injured and locate those needing help.

Resident Anna Pinkus told Sky News she saw a bright light outside her window and then heard three explosions.
Meteor shower in Russia More than 500 people have been injured

“It was a very loud sound. After that our windows began to shatter and shiver so it was very terrifying. First we thought it was a plane crash.”

The local office of the National Emergencies Ministry said in a statement: “A meteorite disintegrated above the Urals (mountain range in central Russia), partially burning up in the lower atmosphere.

“Fragments of the meteorite reached Earth, falling in sparsely populated areas in the Chelyabinsk region.”

Many drivers in Russia have video recorders fitted in their cars in case of accidents or disputes with traffic police. Footage from these uploaded to YouTube show the fireball crashing to the ground.

There were reports of traffic in the Urals city of Chelyabinsk grinding to a halt and people seeking shelter in buildings as the fireballs lit up the sky.

The emergencies ministry confirmed the mobile phone network was temporarily cut.

Schools have been closed for the day across the region after the impact blew out windows.

The Chelyabinsk region is Russia’s industrial heartland, home to many factories and other huge facilities that include a nuclear power plant and the Mayak atomic waste storage and treatment centre.

A spokesman for Rosatom, the Russian nuclear energy state corporation, said that its operations remained unaffected.

“All Rosatom enterprises located in the Urals region – including the Mayak complex – are working as normal,” said a Rosatom spokesman.

Reclaiming the Second Amendment Narrative

Military refer to firearms as weapons…because they were trained to use weapons under command. Common folk don’t. So think about this, the majority of the country can not rationalize *guns* as either a protective device, or an assault device…because it is an inanimate object.
image

Enter the mainstream media. They have an agenda to push. What better way to subliminally drive fear into the common majority who do not understand guns to begin with.
When I went through my initial NRA training, I was immediately taught 4 things:
-It is a firearm, not a weapon. It’s purpose is to neutralize a threat…not create a threat.
-Always point your firearm in a safe direction.
-Do not draw your firearm unless you are prepared to use it.
-A firearm is a trinity concept: 1. ammunition, 2. a firearm, 3. a person. If you take any one of those three elements away, there is no possible way for a firearm to discharge.

image

This last point, is perhaps.the most important point to be made. It is what the MSM conveniently fails to mention. Perhaps if we remove the unstable persons from the equation, we can cease to see these shootings happen.
Now, back to the media:
If I had a drink every time Hannity said “weapon” last night, I’d have been under the table 30 minutes in. *Weapons* is the narrative of the left. People fear *weapons*. It’s a subconscious thing. Weapons are used against people in an attack.
We need to be careful NOT to use “weapons”, but “firearms”. People don’t know how to rationalize fear into *firearms*. We need to steer the media outlets,
And it starts with conservative hosts, contributors and pundits. We need to stop pandering to the leftist agenda, the media bias. We need to fight for the Second Amendment with true and accurate terminology.
If we loose our Second Amendment rights, we lose everything.

Hobby Lobby Appreciation Day 1.5.2013

The largest Arts and Craft store in America, Hobby Lobby, has become the latest target of the socialist political agenda, and the witch-hunt of Christian corporations, organizations, and small business owners, perpetrated by the Mainstream Media.

Today supporters of the corporation and it’s owners religious freedoms flocked to the Hobby Lobby in Kirkwood, Missouri.

Hobby Lobby, a Christian-founded, Christian-based corporation, has decided to follow their faith in God, and the Lord’s Word, and refuse to offer potentially life-ending drugs as part of their employee insurance benefits package. In response to this decision, the Federal Government has launched an offensive against Hobby Lobby purely due to their religious beliefs.
David Greene, founder and CEO of Hobby Lobby has even informed that they will be fined a whopping $1.3million per day for refusing to comply with legislation that is in direct opposition to their religious beliefs. The federal government has exempted thousands of other corporations from this requirement due to financial concerns and financial burden. The government refuses, however, to exempt Hobby Lobby because of the unreported power-struggle of government’s quest to relinquish power over faith.
Below, find the letter released by Hobby Lobby CEO Green:

When my family and I started our company 40 years ago, we were working out of a garage on a $600 bank loan, assembling miniature picture frames. Our first retail store wasn’t much bigger than most people’s living rooms, but we had faith that we would succeed if we lived and worked according to God‘s word. From there, Hobby Lobby has become one of the nation’s largest arts and crafts retailers, with more than 500 locations in 41 states. Our children grew up into fine business leaders, and today we run Hobby Lobby together, as a family.

We’re Christians, and we run our business on Christian principles. I’ve always said that the first two goals of our business are (1) to run our business in harmony with God’s laws, and (2) to focus on people more than money. And that’s what we’ve tried to do. We close early so our employees can see their families at night. We keep our stores closed on Sundays, one of the week’s biggest shopping days, so that our workers and their families can enjoy a day of rest. We believe that it is by God’s grace that Hobby Lobby has endured, and he has blessed us and our employees. We’ve not only added jobs in a weak economy, we’ve raised wages for the past four years in a row. Our full-time employees start at 80% above minimum wage.

But now, our government threatens to change all of that. A new government health care mandate says that our family business MUST provide what I believe are abortion-causing drugs as part of our health insurance. Being Christians, we don’t pay for drugs that might cause abortions, which means that we don’t cover emergency contraception, the morning-after pill or the week-after pill. We believe doing so might end a life after the moment of conception, something that is contrary to our most important beliefs. It goes against the Biblical principles on which we have run this company since day one. If we refuse to comply, we could face $1.3 million PER DAY in government fines.

Our government threatens to fine job creators in a bad economy. Our government threatens to fine a company that’s raised wages four years running. Our government threatens to fine a family for running its business according to its beliefs. It’s not right. I know people will say we ought to follow the rules; that it’s the same for everybody. But that’s not true. The government has exempted thousands of companies from this mandate, for reasons of convenience or cost. But it won’t exempt them for reasons of religious belief.

So, Hobby Lobby – and my family – are forced to make a choice. With great reluctance, we filed a lawsuit today, represented by the Becket Fund for Religious Liberty, asking a federal court to stop this mandate before it hurts our business. We don’t like to go running into court, but we no longer have a choice. We believe people are more important than the bottom line and that honoring God is more important than turning a profit.

My family has lived the American dream. We want to continue growing our company and providing great jobs for thousands of employees, but the government is going to make that much more difficult. The government is forcing us to choose between following our faith and following the law. I say that’s a choice no American – and no American business – should have to make.

The government cannot force you to follow laws that go against your fundamental religious belief. They have exempted thousands of companies but will not except Christian organizations including the Catholic church.

Since you will not see this covered in any of the liberal media, pass this on to all your contacts.

Sincerely, David Green, CEO and Founder of Hobby Lobby Stores, Inc.

Please share this letter on your blogs, and with all Christians,contacts, family, friends and fellow patriots!

Developing: Was SOS Clinton Injured in Near-Fatal Crash, Seal Team 4 Cmdr Killed?

Updated:

Developing story from the EU:

A new Foreign Military Intelligence (GRU) report circulating in the Kremlin today is saying that United States Secretary of State Hillary Clinton [photo 2nd right] was injured, and a top US Navy Seal Commander killed when their C-12 Huron military passenger and transport aircraft crash landed nearly 3 weeks ago in the Iranian city of Ahvaz near the Iraqi border.

Iranian intelligence agents quoted in this GRU report confirm that the C-12 Huron aircraft is still in their possession in Ahvaz, but will only admit that the plane was “forced to land because of technical problems”.

The US Navy Seal member reported killed in this bizarre incident, this report says, was indentified as Commander Job W. Price [photo 3rd right] who as a leader of this highly specialized American Special Forces unit protects high-ranking diplomats traveling in Middle Eastern and Asian combat zones.

Curiously, US media reports on Commander Price’s death say it being investigated as a possible suicide as he died from what the American Defense Department describes as “a non-combat related injury”.

Equally as curious, US media reports state that Secretary Clinton will return to work next week after her having suffered what they describe as a “nasty bout with stomach flu” and a “concussion” which have kept her missing from public view the past three weeks.

This GRU report, however, states that US military flight logs recorded by Russian air and space forces confirm that Commander Price, and other members of US Navy Seal Team 4, left their base in Urozgan Province, Afghanistan on a flight to US Naval Support Activity Bahrain where they met up with Secretary Clinton and all of them transferred to the C-12 Huron that began a flight path to Baghdad, Iraq.

Within minutes of leaving Bahrain airspace, this report says, the C-12 Huron carrying Secretary Clinton and her US Navy Seal protectors, “without notice,” deviated from their assigned flight path heading, instead, directly towards Iran’s Ahwaz International Airport where, coincidentally, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad had previously landed on an “unscheduled” visit.

Important to note, GRU analysts say in this report, was that when the C-12 Huron entered into Iranian airspace neither American nor Iran air force units responded clearly indicating that this secret mission was sanctioned.

Upon the C-12 Huron landing at Ahwaz, however, this report says it encountered “extreme turbulence” causing it to leave the runway where its main landing gear then collapsed causing it to crash.

Within seconds of the C-12 Huron crashing, this report continues, Iranian emergency and security personal responded freeing the victims, including Secretary Clinton who was reportedly unconscious and “bleeding profusely.”

After emergency aid was given, GRU agents stationed in Iran state that another US military flight was dispatched from Bahrain to Ahwaz which evacuated all of those wounded and killed in the crash including Secretary Clinton.

Strangely to note, this report says, is that in the aftermath of this crash, Iran’s main oil company announced today that they were buying the Ahwaz airport with the intention of moving it because, they say, oil was discovered beneath it.

To what the Americans mission to Iran was about this report doesn’t speculate upon, other than to note that with the Gulf State Monarchies rapidly approaching a union of their oil rich nations to counter Iranian power, and with President Obama signing a new law this past week to strengthen American borders against threats from Iran, and with the highly-publicized “Velayat 91” Iranian military exercises now taking place across a wide area from the Strait of Hormuz, a new and catastrophic war in this region is much closer to being a reality than many realize.

To if Secretary Clinton’s mission was meant to forestall such a war it is not in our knowing, other than to note, that with the United States continued backing of some of the cruelest dictatorships in the world, our entire planet is but one spark away from a fire that could very well consume us all.

Gun Owners: The Press, The Witchhunt, and My Full Disclosure

The recent publication of names and addresses of registered gun owners in the greater West Plains, New York area, has received more backlash than accolades. The Journal (which I will not credit with a hyperlink, if you want to find it, Google it yourself…they don’t deserve the traffic) released the map, authored by Dwight Workstation. But in a high-five response to the publication, the name, address and image of the author’s information has also been published over the internet.

image

Paybacks are a bitch...

In an attempt to *make a statement* by re-publishing a matter of public record, Dwight Worley instead made every citizen in the area a defenseless target for violent crime. In fact, it’s even more brilliant than this:
image

The intimidation tactic suggested that anyone embarrassed by the publication of their information should give up their guns.
Of course, the mainstream media would not go so far as to publish a map of registered sex offenders, drug dealers, illegal gun owners, or DWI offenders…no, they go after law-abiding citizens.
It gets even stupider: the map only displays registered owners of handguns. It is not required to register shotguns and rifles in the state of New York…probably because shotguns do less damage than a .22 caliber pistol (snark).
The MSM will never get past these tactics. They are incapable of using logic because they are to blinded by their delusions of notoriety and their bent on sensationalism. In fact, there is no longer a line between the MSM and papparazzi publicity.
So my question now: Will the Post-Dispatch follow suit? Maybe. They certainly have no problem publishing their fair share of smut. If they do, I’m afraid they will be disappointed, as we Constitution-loving, law-abiding citizens are beating them to the punch.
My full disclosure:
As a resident of the state of Missouri, I have submitted myself to the appropriate background-check process required to own a firearm, and was approved. I have been professionally trained in tactical defense with a firearm, as well as in-home and out-of-home tactical defense.
I consciously make the responsible decision to practice the controlled handing of firearms at a shooting range to ensure that, if threatened to the point where the only option left in defense was that of discharging a firearm, I can accurately discharge a firearm with mind to safety of anything outside of that threat.
I believe in the Constitution of the United States of America as a binding contract. I believe in the Second Amendment. I believe that I have the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness…as well as the right to defend it.
With this in mind. I may own guns, I may not. I would strongly recommend that you do not attempt to find out by breaking I.to my house with a weapon. Just sayin!

McCaskill Turns Boogeyman: Flips Stance on Coal

Remember in November: McCaskill’s stance on coal…no matter how she and the mainstream media try to spin it!
From The Gateway Pundit:

Awful… McCaskill Votes for Expensive New Coal Regulations But Denies It on Her Website June 20th, 2012 by Jim Hoft In case we needed further proof that Claire McCaskill’s rhetoric doesn’t match her record… This morning, Senator Claire McCaskill (D-MO) voted with her party to implement the EPA’s MACT rule, one of the costliest regulations in U.S. history—and one that will prove especially devastating to coal-dependent states such as Missouri. The measure voted on today would have overturned regulations that coal industry groups have said will hurt the economy, close power plant doors and raise electricity costs. McCaskill voted for the costly new regulations. Apparently her campaign didn’t get the memo. Here’s a screen grab from her site’s “Energy” issue page:

It’s bad enough that Claire voted for expensive new regulations that will force Missouri electricity prices to skyrocket… It’s worse that she’s not honest about it.
