If Christians don't get in the game...

Today I read the most unbelievably hateful article I have ever read in my life. As I read this article printed by the South Bend Tribune, I sat in astonishment that a publisher would print such hate. By the end of the article, my stomach was tied in knots, and I was sick. It is time to sound the alarm... This is fair warning to all who call themselves Believers in Jesus Christ. If you don't get off the sidelines, get into the game, and get involved, you will lose whatever freedom we have left in America. Persecution is coming QUICKLY if we don't regain the ground we have lost. As my hero in the faith; Janet Folger has stated, "There is a war going on for the future of our country. Most people know that. What they may not know is that if Christians lose, the result won't be just public policy with which we disagree; it'll be a prison sentence for those who disagree."

Yes, we have the right to remain silent, but if we use it much longer, we may hear those words being read to us just before we see the inside of a prison cell. ~Janet Folger

No matter who becomes the next president of the United States, the American people have already won a great victory — with the total disintegration of the once all-powerful religious right.
Starting in 1979, when Jerry Falwell founded the Moral Majority, Christian conservatives have been the most powerful voting bloc in the Republican party. Ironically, they began by casting out of the White House a born-again Christian who continued, as president, his life-long practice of teaching Sunday school, and replacing him with a divorced and remarried man who seldom stepped inside a church.
But of course, Jimmy Carter was a Democrat and Ronald Reagan was a Republican. And by staying united, the religious right has been able ever since to exercise its veto power over Republican candidates and dictate the issues — abortion, same-sex marriage, stem cell research and school prayer — they would campaign on. Until, that is, the presidential campaign of 2008.
Today, the religious right has splintered into as many different factions as O. J. Simpson has alibis. Unable to find one candidate who fits the bill of being both true-blue on the issues and electable, America's ayatollahs have divided their loyalties. Indeed, in some cases, they've even declared war against each other.
The National Right to Life League has endorsed Fred Thompson, even though he opposes a constitutional amendment to ban Roe vs. Wade and admits he only goes to church when visiting his mother — while James Dobson says he's not even sure Thompson qualifies as a Christian. Sam Brownback has endorsed John McCain, who once called Jerry Falwell an “agent of intolerance.” And Bob Jones III and Moral Majority Co-Founder Paul Weyrich have even endorsed a Mormon, because they think Mitt Romney is the only one who can beat Hillary Clinton.
Meanwhile, Mike Huckabee, the only ordained Baptist minister in the race, is almost totally ignored by his fellow Christians because, even though Huckabee scores 100 percent on the issues, they don't think he has a snowball's chance in Hell of winning. Huckabee's only evangelical endorsement comes from Tim LaHaye, co-author of the “Left Behind” novels — which may be the appropriate title for Huckabee's campaign.
And, in one of the most bizarre pairings in politics, Pat Robertson, who blamed gays for Sept. 11 and prayed for a meteor to strike Disney World's gay pride parade, has endorsed Rudy Giuliani — perhaps because he's counting on Giuliani to assassinate Hugo Chavez. James Dobson has said he will never vote for Giuliani, even if it means staying home. But the fact remains that, with Robertson's help, the Republican party could very well nominate for president a candidate who is twice-divorced, thrice-married, pro-choice, pro-gay rights and an occasional cross-dresser.
Merely entertaining Giuliani as a candidate demonstrates that, for many conservatives, political power counts more than Christian values. The religious right is dead. It will never again exercise the political clout it once had — which is bad news for Republicans, but good news for the republic.
While in the long-term, some moderate Republicans might welcome relief from having to genuflect in front of the pro-life movement and Terri Schiavo, the short-term political impact for the Republican party is a disaster. Christian conservatives probably won't vote for a Democrat. They're more likely just to stay home. But the result's the same: Overnight, Republicans have lost their biggest and most loyal bloc of support. It's the political equivalent of Democrats' losing support of the unions.
But for Americans generally, the demise of the religious right is good news. It means tolerance is back. It means we don't have to worry so much about efforts to turn the United States into a Christian nation. It means “secular” is no longer a dirty word. It means politicians will be judged by more important issues than how many times they utter the God word in one sentence. It means the list of moral issues will expand from abortion and gay marriage to include health care, a living wage, global warming, pre-emptive war and torture. In short, the dying influence of Christian conservatives means that people of all faiths, or no faith at all, will feel comfortable participating in the political process — and not just those who subscribe to the narrow-minded, intolerant, mean-spirited brand of religion espoused by Dobson and Robertson. And for that we collectively pray: Thank you, Jesus.

Memo To Rep. Terri Austin: We’re Not Going to Forget Your vote on SJR 7

From Hoosier Access Blog:
Memo To Rep. Terri Austin: We’re Not Going to Forget Your vote on SJR 7
It’s organization day and for SJR 7 supporters, like myself, that means we’re looking forward to what will undoubtedly be a tough battle to let Hoosiers vote on SJR 7-the marriage amendment. Last year Speaker B. Patrick property-tax-decrease Bauer (D-South Bend) failed to uphold his promise to allow a floor vote on SJR 7. Bauer can try to deflect the responsiblity for this failure by pointing out that it was the Rules Committee that ultimately failed to send it to the floor. However, he assigned it to that committee and he could have instructed Rep. Scott Pelath (D-Michigan City), to do everything he could do as committee chair to make sure it got to the floor.
Furthermore, it was the critical swing vote of Rep. Terri Austin (D-Anderson) that let Hoosiers down and partially let Bauer off the hook. In 2005 Rep. Austin had no problem voting for SJR 7. She even pointed out in the 2006 campaign that she was a strong supporter of SJR 7. A few months after her re-election though, Austin, probably under a lot of pressure from her caucus (ie: Bauer and Pelath) buckled and voted against bringing SJR 7 to the floor of the House.
With an election looming next November, the American Family Assocation of IN PAC has put up a banner near a major intersection in Anderson reminding constituents of Rep. Austin’s failure to support SJR 7. While I can’t speak for others, I do know that if Austin does end up having the chance to vote on SJR 7 in committee and ends up being the swing vote that allows us to get a floor vote, marriage amendment supporters will reduce the pressure they have put on her.
Here’s the AFA-IN PAC Banner:

Christianity is a Hate Crime.

At the moment most forms of Christianity are illegal in Islamic Nations and Communist nations (i.e. half of the earth). Adherents are imprisoned and/or put to death. Soon Biblical Christianity will be illegal in the Western World. This is because Christianity is about hatred;i.e.of evil. As child-killing and perversion is law, goodness is criminal.

VICTORY in Indiana!!!

Today, the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals dismissed the ACLU lawsuit regarding praying in Jesus name in the Indiana House of Representatives. The District Court ruling was a landmark decision marking the first time a federal court had attempted to dictate the specific content of prayer in a state or federal legislative body.
Representative Jackie Walorski said, "This is a great day of victory in the State of Indiana and for the United States as well, that the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals has ruled in favor of uncensored prayers at the Indiana Statehouse. I am thankful to the thousands of people in our State that have fervently prayed for this ruling to be overturned and today, we are thankful that we can again openly pray in Jesus' name in our State. In our culture today, it is critical to protect individual freedom and freedom of expression, and this is a major victory!" For nearly 190 years, it has been the tradition of the Indiana House to allow clerics from many faiths to offer prayer before the House begins its business for the day. This tradition is also followed by Congress for over 200 years. This freedom, for individuals to offer prayers freely and in accordance with their own religious beliefs has been protected for generations as a free expression of speech and freedom of religious expression. The District Court that originally banned prayer ignored this tradition and sought to require the House Speaker to censor prayers. The Court of Appeals returned the case to the District Court with instructions to dismiss for want for jurisdiction.

The next President of the United States

Every column I write I write as an individual, but I want to be especially clear that I am writing this particular column not as the president of Faith2Action, a radio host or as a member of the Values Voter Debate committee, because in this column I want to tell you how I believe those who value life, liberty and the family will regain the White House – and who I believe is the man to do it. The dilemma we face is that we have a conservative vote-split between some very good candidates and the only way we can win is if we unite. The question is whom to unite behind? Let's set up the ground rules: the one the values voters unite behind must be pro-life and pro-marriage. Not a particularly high standard, but a disqualifying one. Secondly, he needs to be able to win – which of course, happens when we unite behind him. That life/marriage disqualifier rules out: Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama: rabidly pro-abortion and anti-marriage. Duh. Mayor Rudy Giuliani: wants you to pay for child dismemberment with your tax dollars and is against the Marriage Protection Amendment – other than that, he's a nice guy. Gov. Mitt Romney: His position, perhaps best summarized by the question asked by Peter LaBarbera of Americans for Truth to an empty podium at the Values Voter Presidential debate: "Governor Romney, you are running as a pro-life, pro-marriage candidate, but you have a history of being strongly pro-abortion on demand and pro-homosexual. You supported Roe v. Wade and said abortion should be 'safe and legal.' In 2002, you opposed a state constitutional amendment that would have stopped homosexual so-called 'marriage' in Massachusetts. You said homosexuals should be allowed in the Boy Scouts of America, and as governor, you officially celebrated 'Gay-Straight Youth Pride Day.' You sat on Marriot's Board of Directors for 10 years while it profited off the sale of hard-core pornographic videos to its guests. Why should voters trust you after you spent so much of your career aggressively promoting anti-life and anti-family positions? I understand a 'change of heart,' but a 'change of position' on life, marriage, gun control, pornography, and immigration all preceding your run for president?

Bush's promise to veto Hate Crimes.

This in tonight from the Family Research Council...

White House Returns to the Scene of the Hate Crimes
The growing concern about the ultimate impact on free speech and religious liberty of sweeping federal "hate crimes" legislation has not been lost on the Bush administration. Yesterday the White House announced that the President would veto any attempt to expand the federal "hate crimes" law--"even if it means sending the defense authorization bill back to Congress." Hoping to force the special rights measure through the Senate, Sen. Edward Kennedy (D-Mass.) attached it to legislation that affects national security. We applaud President Bush for refusing to blink. After a concerted effort by FRC and a motivated coalition led by our good friend Bishop Harry Jackson, more churches are learning that the only way to broaden "hate crimes" is ultimately by treating crime victims inequitably and by limiting free speech and religious expression. The Senate is expected to take up "hate crimes" legislation when it returns next month.
Now is a great opportunity to call President Bush to thank him for his unwavering stand to veto this dangerous bill. You can call 202-456-1111. We will keep you updated on this bill as it progresses forward.

The Trojan Horse in our Schools

I read an article one time that I will never forget. It asked the question, "How will America hand over our precious freedom when we have been blessed with it for all of these years?" The answer? Our children. This age and agenda want our children. If they have our children, they have our freedom. A Trojan horse has now entered our schools. We didn't even know it was there. It is full of ideas, and agenda's that have now let loose on our children. This email below is haunting to me. It is time we take action, and take our schools back.

NEA begins massive drive to promote homosexuality in public schools
Is it time for a school voucher program?Without allowing members to vote on the matter, the executive committee of the National Education Association (NEA) decided to advance aggressively the homosexual agenda. The decision was made at the association's annual meeting in Philadelphia.
First, the committee voted to put the weight of the NEA behind an effort to pass federal hate crimes legislation, a measure that would greatly expand federal power and lead to the silencing of moral opposition.
Second, the executive committee voted to boost the NEA's Web site to "include all resources" devoted to homosexual causes.
The third resolution urged NEA members to push to make sexual orientation training a requirement for earning a license to teach.
They continued their financial support of homosexual groups.

It matters little to the NEA that Johnny may be unable to read and write, as long as he learns to support same-sex marriage.

Given the opportunity, would you favor giving a voucher to students, allowing them to choose the school of their choice? Because the voucher would be given directly to the student, there would be no violation of the church and state issue.

Don't miss Values Voters Debate

You know that I'm one for taking action, so I'll cut straight to the chase. There's a big event coming up and you need to be a part of how it's going to re-shape America. What: The GOP Values Voters Presidential Debate When: Sept. 17, 2007 Where: Fort Lauderdale, Fla. We've heard the questions from talking snowmen. We've gotten the crumbs that fell from Chris Matthews. Now it's our turn. It's time the candidates answer questions from the largest voting block in America: the values voters. Yes, the values voters. Even with two-thirds (19 million) of the evangelical Christian eligible voters sitting on the bench in the last presidential election, we "values voters" still made up the largest voting block in the country. There's no debating that. Doesn't matter how fringe or extreme the media tries to portray us – according to the National Election Pool exit poll, in 2004 the evangelical vote constituted 36 percent (over a third) of Bush's voters – up 10 percent from 2000.

Hours wasted over needless Debate in Indiana

The following was released yesterday from the Family Research Council. Last session, the Indiana Legislators fell prey to the fear monger. They did not have the courage to stand up for traditional marriage because of the plan from the "same sex" activist planting fear in several Legislators. State Representative Terri Austin did a 360 and voted against marriage, quite contrary to her promise to her voters.

All eyes were on Ohio yesterday, as both sides of the marriage debate held their breaths for a ruling on a domestic violence statute that some have argued might run afoul of the new state marriage amendment. A man accused of assaulting his live-in girlfriend had argued that he couldn't be charged with domestic violence because the state's marriage amendment bars Ohio from "assigning legal status to unmarried couples." The state supreme court disagreed, ruling 6-1 that the domestic violence law's protections are available to victims of criminal acts regardless of their legal status. Fortunately, the decision was a victory in both protecting people from domestic violence and upholding the state's marriage amendment. It may also save other states from similar suits, as same-sex activists planned to use this loophole as grounds to question the wisdom of other amendments. You may remember that in Indiana earlier this year state Rep. Terri Austin (D) used the same rationale to single-handedly sabotage a vote on a marriage amendment. She switched sides at the 11th hour, citing concern that a vote for marriage was a vote to weaken the state's domestic violence laws. Now that a state supreme court has proved her wrong, we urge Austin to change course and, most importantly, fulfill her promise to protect marriage as she vowed to do in the first place.

It's time we DEMAND that the Indiana Legislators put marriage first, and bring SJR7 to the floor for a FULL VOTE, and take it to the people!

Bauer Playing Politics with our Families

Who will stand up for our families? Who will be willing to go against the political "PC" and listen to the family's begging for some tax relief? After Representative Walorski's decision to go against the flow of even her own party, Speaker Patrick Bauer decided to repsond to her leadership with the following...

"But Speaker B. Pat Bauer says her plan to eliminate the property tax is impossible.“You would have to eliminate local schools and/or local government, local police and local fire,” he explained. “Or you would have to replace that property tax with another source of revenue, and the only two sources of revenue on the state level that raise any money are sales and income [taxes].”

Mr Bauer, I ask you, where are our Seniors going to go when they cannot pay their massive Property tax bills? This is imoral, and to me... criminal for those who have worked hard to pay thier mortgage, to loose their homes to the Government if they can't pay the piper. Things need to change quickly... and Mr. Bauer I have news for you. THERE IS A SOLUTION. There is a permenant solution if you take your political hat off, and work together. It is time to stop passing blame, and start responding to our families. It has been reported that Representative Walorski's drive for signatures for Property tax reform is bringing over 100 signatures an hour. Mr. Bauer, listen to those signatures.

Until July 9th, no other Republican stood up until State Representative Jackie Walorski paved the way, and made a DECLARATION in Elkhart Indiana, that we have a TAX crisis, and called on the leaders to listen to the people! She called upon legislative leaders to pave the way for a complete overhaul of the tax system. She is leading the state in this call for a complete reform and PERMANENT reform of the tax system. I am so glad she had the courage to go against the flow!

interreligious dialogue

A college affiliated with a Christian denomination has appointed to head its religion department a practicing Hindu who believes that some forms of Christian ministry produce violence. Anantanand Rambachan, who has taught religion and philosophy at St. Olaf College in Northfield, Minn., since 1985, now will become the first non-Christian to head the religion department in the school's 133-year history. "It's a great honor," Rambachan, a leading figure in Minnesota's Hindu community, told the Minneapolis Star-Tribune. But in an interview with Hinduism Today, he wrote of participating in the Pontifical Council in Rome in 2006. "Last year we met in Rome in a joint consultation with the World Council of Churches to discuss conversion. This was the first meeting of a three-year project to study the issue and to develop an acceptable code of conduct. Certain forms of Christian proselytization have given rise to tension and even violence between some religious communities," he said. "We gathered to share our perspectives on this matter and to consider acceptable and unacceptable ways of sharing our faiths in communities.

I'm suing gayHarmony

This column is a down and dirty look at where we came from, where we are, and where we are going.I'm suing gayHarmony for discrimination. That's right. Because without having checked, I'm certain there isn't a single homosexual site or publication that offers what I'm looking for: A heterosexual pro-life Christian who likes long walks on the beach and wants to help fight unequal justice mandated in the speech-restricting "hate crimes" bill.Those bigoted heterophobes. Before you call the thought police, I don't really think the homosexual publications should be forced to cater to me. But unfortunately, that tolerance is not reciprocated. Lesbian Linda Carlson of San Francisco is suing eHarmony because she can't find a date. They don't offer a category for "lesbian bullies seeking women," so she wants to bully eHarmony until they do. My advice to eHarmony: Stand strong for your freedom of conscience or you'll invite a whole new batch of lawsuits from: The Mary Kay LeTerneau's of the world because there's no "teachers seeking students" category; The Pete the Pedophiles – for age discrimination (no "men seeking children" category); Chris the Cross Dresser – because there's no category for cross dressers (and whatever they seek), leading people online to believe that he's just a very ugly woman.Our next category is attacking private business owners. That's nothing new for the homosexual activists. Scott Brockie was fined because he didn't want to print homosexual propaganda; he's $170,000 in debt for his religious beliefs.

I.R.S. to Church, Shut Up.,

This is a story about I.R.S. jack booted thugs with the power of the U.S. Government trying to intimidate a church minding it's business. A Christian church in Kansas has told the Internal Revenue Service that it will not stop teaching and preaching God's Word, "even if it relates to contemporary issues in the world," after the federal agency demanded answers to 31 questions about its beliefs and warned about "political" activity. Spirit One Christian Center Pastor Mark Holick told WND that the IRS, perhaps, should brush up on the freedoms assured U.S. citizens regarding religion and speech before making such demands in the future. An announcement about the IRS crackdown on moral statements by the church He said the issues the church addressed – and will continue to address – concern issues that the Bible addresses, such as killing and protecting the defenseless. The response came to a series of questions from the IRS questioning whether the church was involved in "political" activity. In specific, Holick said, the IRS cited a sign that read: "Sebelius accepted $300,000.00 from abortionist Tiller, price of 1000 babies." But that, he said, was just part of a responsibility on the part of a Christian church to comment on abortion, a red-hot topic in the church's home city of Wichita. That's also the location of the abortion business of George Tiller, whose political connections in Kansas have been documented by Operation Rescue, a pro-life organization, and reported by WND.

Bush grants presidency extraordinary powers

Order for emergencies apparently gives authority without congressional oversightIt seems that soon George Bush will gain total control over the United States government. There are lots of stories about this floating around the internet, but not nearly enough concern.President Bush has signed an executive order granting extraordinary powers to the office of the president in the event of a declared national emergency, apparently without congressional approval or oversight. The order was signed May 9 without any announcement, says Jerome R. Corsi in a WND column. Titled, "National Security and Homeland Security Presidential Directive," it was issued with the dual designation of NSPD-51, as a National Security Presidential Directive, and HSPD-20, as a Homeland Security Presidential Directive. The order establishes under the office of the president a new national continuity coordinator whose job is to make plans for "National Essential Functions" of all federal, state, local, territorial and tribal governments, as well as private sector organizations to continue functioning under the president's directives in the event of a national emergency. "Catastrophic emergency" is loosely defined as "any incident, regardless of location, that results in extraordinary levels of mass casualties, damage, or disruption severely affecting the U.S. population, infrastructure, environment, economy, or government functions."

Pride isn't a parade

When homosexuals go to far. The homosexual lobby and those in power in the U.S. House of Representatives made a mistake. They made a strategic error that cost them greatly. Oh, don't get me wrong; the liberal Democrats did a good job (teaming up with the media) convincing 19 million Christians to stay home last November. They did a good job pretending that stupid move would send some kind of "message" to Congress. All it did was hand the reigns of power to people who hate us and want to outlaw our beliefs. Their deception worked. But what didn't work is ... their pride. What they don't know is that pride isn't a parade; rather, pride goeth before a fall. One couldn't miss the arrogance of those in power at the congressional hearing on hate crimes. John Conyers, Sheila Jackson Lee and their cohorts treated witnesses like Brad Dacus of the Pacific Justice Institute and those who stood for freedom of speech with disdain. The Democrats didn't even pretend to run things in an even-handed way. Stacking their witnesses while limiting ours, they grandstanded their agenda, gavel in hand. They had the votes. They had the power. And they were going to flaunt it. Color me surprised.

Time for a Revolution; Families taking back our Country!

This recent Declaration from Poland Caught my eye. By the end of the document, I could not sit as I read the words! We need a Revolution, and we need one quickly. In my 32 years, enjoying the Freedoms of this blessed nation, I wonder to myself... "How could we hand over our freedoms and keys to our families. Then it hit me. They take our freedom through our children. If they teach our children tolerance, and the "new agenda" They have won the battle. Michael Chapman compares this to the Trojan Horse. Only instead of an army of humans, inside this Trojan Horse are ideas and philosophies. They have our families, and we need to reclaim them! Read this Declaration for the families!
of theWorld Congress of Families IV
Warsaw, May 11-13, 2007

We the participants of the World Congress of Families IV commit ourselves to protect the Truth about the family, recalling its natural essence as a community of love and life, one bearing inalienable rights as it is written in the Charter of the Family Rights. [1]
The natural family, creation of God, is the fundamental human community, based on the life long marriage between a man and a woman, in which new individuals are conceived, born, and raised. [2]
"The future of humanity passes by way of the family" [3] and "there is no more efficient way for the rebirth of the society than its rebirth through healthy families" [4] that are faithful to their conjugal and parental vocations.
Such families bring to the world today:
Faithfulness to the Divine Truth versus relativism;
Real love, being the complete and impartial gift of oneself versus hedonism;
Faithfulness in love throughout life versus lack of responsibility toward those closest to us;
Respect for the life of every human being from conception to natural death versus discrimination against and extermination of the weakest;
Joyful responsibility for every child-to-be, versus fear of the child expressed in the contraceptive mentality;
A moral community in which young generations can grow versus false ideologies propagating demoralization;
And, last but not least, the "springtime" of a civilization of love and life versus "demographic winter."
We are thankful for all religious communities which affirm these truths. Meeting in Warsaw, the capital of Poland, the motherland of Pope John Paul II, we especially thank God for this Pope's teachings about the Divine Intention towards marriage and family, love within families, and the protection of life, and for his prayers and suffering offered toward those ends.
And we thank his successor, Pope Benedict XVI, who continues to witness to the Truth about life and the family.
We thank all of those who serve the family and protect it.
We thank every caring family as a real sign of hope in the modern world.
We thank all spouses, fathers, and mothers who keep on loving and caring for each child.
We therefore call for:
Churches and other Religious Communities to proclaim the truth about life, marriage, and the family, affirming the latter as the first community of faith and the school of all vocations.
We call for all governing and political bodies to mainstream the family in public policy as a fundamental and inalienable social good, in order to serve their own nations. We call on them to protect every human being from conception to natural death, to stress the upbringing of children as the fundamental right of parents, to protect young people against demoralization, and to promote economic solutions that provide dignified living conditions to all families. Let the sequel to this call be to proclaim the year 2008 - the Year of the Family.
We call for all academics of good will to place their knowledge at the service of the family.
We ask health professionals to uphold freedom of conscience and to faithfully safeguard human life, especially when it is weakest and most threatened.
We ask journalists to serve the truth, to remain objective, to reveal the real threats and needs of the family, and to offer young people positive values which build sustainable human development.
We ask young people to seek wisdom, to choose life, to preserve their hearts and body, and to grow with a focus on truth and faithful love. We ask all people of good will to be at one with families and to help them restore hope and bring concrete assistance when difficulties occur. Let us pour special friendship on parents who love their children.
And finally, we who are gathered at the World Congress of Families IV call upon all families in the world to: "Be not afraid!" Let us be as one! Let us be the sign of hope! Let us encourage each other and bring happiness and joy!
Let us inspire hope in all human beings, enabling them to contribute to the "springtime" of Europe and of the world: we commit ourselves to this beautiful task.
1 Charter of the Rights of the Family, presented by the Holy See to all persons, institutions and authorities concerned with the mission of the family in today's world October 22, 1983
2 The family "is the first and fundamental structure for "human ecology," in which man receives his first formative ideas about truth and goodness, and learns what it means to love and to be loved." The family is also the "sanctuary of life," the place in which life—the gift of God—can be properly welcomed and protected against the many attacks to which it is exposed, and can develop in accordance with what constitutes authentic human growth. In the face of the so-called culture of death, the family is the heart of the culture of life"—(Centesimus annus, 39).

Lawmakers team up against 'evil'

Lawmakers gather to speak of protecting civilizations corner stone, the Family.Inspired by a global gathering of family activists who issued a declaration urging courage, a group of European politicians wasted no time as they huddled before the conference ended to strategize on how they can join forces to overcome the continent's "demographic winter" and "promote life" in the face of fierce opposition. The fourth World Congress of Families concluded in Poland's capital today after some of the more than 3,300 delegates from 75 countries heard an address prepared by the Vatican's Cardinal Alfonso Lopez Trujillo, president of the Pontifical Council for the Family, who warned "the situation that has been created in our world with regard to marriage and the family calls for all our efforts." "We are living in a decisive and very important moment," Trujillo declared in remarks delivered by Fr. Grzegorz Kaszak because the Vatican official was called back to Rome. "If we have bad laws concerning the institutions that are fundamental for the life of society, then we will all suffer and, after us, the generations to come." That's why more than 30 members of national parliaments and the European Parliament, along with a few activists from nongovernmental groups, met Saturday at Poland's Senate to compare notes, share strategies and draft a plan to help preserve the "natural" family.

Murdoch pastor gets heat for mogul's porn channels

Mega-pastor Rick Warren is being challenged by other Christian leaders for not disciplining a prominent member of his California Saddleback Church flock for being one of the world's leading pornographers. That would be Rupert Murdoch, chairman of News Corp., which, in addition to building a media empire on the chests of topless models and edgy, pushing-the-envelope Fox TV network shows, recently began building a stable of hard-core porn channels for its BSkyB subsidiary. "Rupert Murdoch is a born-again Christian and Rick Warren claims to be his pastor," says Chris Rosebrough, head of the Christian Accountability Network. "As a Christian, Murdoch is committing an egregious sin by owning, expanding and profiting from pornographic channels, and Rick Warren, his pastor, has a biblical duty to call Murdoch to repentance and/or put him out of the church."

ABC News ... all the Fiction fit to print.

Back in the days when I ran major-market daily newspapers for a living, I remember looking around a newsroom of around 200 people and coming to a startling conclusion. I knew these people pretty well. I worked with them every day. And it occurred to me that I was the only one who regularly attended church, worshipped God, prayed and read the Bible. Not much has changed in America's newsrooms since then, I explain in my new book, "Stop The Presses! The Inside Story of the New Media Revolution." Maybe the situation is even a little worse. I give you this background as a prelude to a story about evangelicals reported last week by ABC News. Now I've been an evangelical for a long time, so you can imagine my surprise to learn that until recently my fellow believers did not support adoption! I'm shocked. I'm appalled. I'm stunned. That's what ABC News reported. "Now there are evangelicals speaking out on global warming and supporting adoption," reported Bill Redeker. "Neither would have been endorsed only a few years ago." Where on Earth did ABC News ever come up with the idea that evangelicals did not support adoption? If not Earth, which planet?

Hello, Just wanted to chat with someone about how you can influence an elected official.

My personal experience has been that a personal letter, phone call, or a visit to the state house to voice your opinion about a bill. Locally, you can help in other ways.

I did not get involved until I was asked. I started by volunteering to help with a campaign, phone calls, posting signs, then I asked the elected official who was running, "who is praying for you?" and that started our Friday morning prayer times.

I would love to talk to someone about the results, and how exciting it was to see God answer prayer.

US and EU integration?

President Bush signed an agreement creating a "permanent body" that commits the U.S. to "deeper transatlantic economic integration," without ratification by the Senate as a treaty or passage by Congress as a law. The "Transatlantic Economic Integration" between the U.S. and the European Union was signed April 30 at the White House by Bush, German Chancellor Angela Merkel – the current president of the European Council – and European Commission President José Manuel Barroso. The document acknowledges "the transatlantic economy remains at the forefront of globalization," arguing that the U.S. and the European Union "seek to strengthen transatlantic economic integration." The agreement established a new Transatlantic Economic Council to be chaired on the U.S. side by a cabinet-level officer in the White House and on the EU side by a member of the European Commission. The current U.S. head of the new Transatlantic Economic Council is Allan Hubbard, assistant to the president for Economic Policy and director of the National Economic Council. The current EU head of the council is Günther Verheugen, vice-President of the European Commission in charge of enterprise and industry.
