American Muslim Brotherhood Organizes New Political Party

5 04 2014

In an effort to motivate and organize the Muslim Ummah in American politics, the Muslim Brotherhood has launched the U. S. Council of Muslim Organizations USCMO in hopes of having a determining impact in US elections.

“‘Muslim voters have the potential to be swing voters in 2016…We are aiming to bring more participation from the Muslim community.”  So said Nihad Awad, Co-founder and Executive Director of Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR).  CAIR is among several Islamist groups working under the umbrella of the Muslim Brotherhood, recently named a terrorist organization by Egypt who also has recently condemned hundreds of MB members, including former President Mohamed Morsi, to death.

“Allah is our goal; the Messenger is our guide; the Koran is our law; Jihad is our means; and martyrdom in the way of Allah is our inspiration.” Creed of the Muslim Brotherhood

The “Explanatory Memorandum on the Strategic Goal for the [Muslim Brotherhood] in North America” outlines the plan for the Islamic colonization and conquest of the US, a document published in 1991.  Among the USCMO participating organizations found listed among those named as MB organizations or “those of our friends” is not only CAIR, but also Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA) and the Muslim American Society (MAS) which was founded in ’93, two years after the ‘Memorandum” was published as a result of Muslim Brotherhood in America deciding they should have a public face.

The MAS instigator and self proclaimed co-founder Mohamed Mahdi Akef was the Supreme Guide for the MB International in Egypt from 2002 until Mohamed Badie replaced him in 2012.  (Last July, 2013 both men were arrested along with the other MB leadership, after Morsi was ousted by the Egyptian military.  I could not confirm whether Akef was one of the 528 condemned on March 24th.)  Sheikh Akef’s entire life has been intertwined with the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt. MAS is actively involved in anti-Semitic propaganda and pro-jihad statements, encouraging Muslims by quoting Quranic statements to avoid friendship with Jews and Christians, “kill them”, and “wage Jihad with the intention of dying as a martyr”.  As with other MB organizations, the prime directive is to establish an Islamic State in the U.S.

This is the next step in the “culture-jihad” delineated in the “Memorandum“.

Egypt Sentences Muslim Brothers to ‘Death’

25 03 2014

I’m sure you remember the much championed “Arab Spring”.  At least it was championed by all the Western Media elite and the Obama Administration as a “new birth” for the Arab states in North Africa.  The resulting chaos has been anything but life-giving. Especially for religious minorities in those major majority nations.  In Libya, the “rebels”, with US help, captured and butchered Moamar Ghaddafi, the long time evil dictator who trained and funded terrorists against the West, and claimed responsility for the Lockerbie bombing of PanAm Flt 103 in 1988.  (Now it seems that he lied about that in order to get the west to “lift crippling sanctions to pave the way for lucrative oil deals, some of which were brokered by Tony Blair”, and that the culprit was actually Iran. – The Telegraph)

The removal of Ghaddafi eventually resulted in the loss of four Americans at the Benghazi consulate, including the US Ambassador to Libya.  The conspiracy theories surrounding that whole story continue to swirl as a result of the US Government laying blame at the feet of a small time movie producer who dissed the “prophet” Muhammad.  Were it not for the valiant self-sacrifice of those two former SEAL’s, Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty, there would have been dozens of dead American foreign service members.

The Obama Administration continued to press Egypt to oust Hosni Mubarak, a man who was no friend to the Muslim Brotherhood.  You see, the Muslim Brotherhood is not new to Egypt. In fact, Egypt is the Ikhwan’s birthplace in 1928.  Hassan al-Banna founded the Brotherhood to bring back the Khilafah (caliphate) which had been outlawed by the new government of Turkey after Mustafa Kemal Ataturk led an effective revolution and became Turkey’s first president in 1922.

The Brotherhood continued to grow in strength and during the time of Nasser’s coup d’etat of 1952 were beginning to create a problem.  By 1954, Nasser had outlawed the Brotherhood and imprisoned thousands in concentration camps.  One of these was Seyyid Qutb, author of Milestones, among many other publications. Qutb is known as one of the most influential Muslim thinkers of modernity.  He has influenced men like Osama bin Ladin, founder of Al Qaida, Ayman Zawahiri of Islamic Jihad, and Anwar al-Awlaki, the American grown terrorist who preached at the Falls Church, VA mosque attended by 3 of the 911 hijackers, and one Nidal Hassan, the Fort Hood jihadi who killed 13 unarmed soldiers in a classroom, and wounded 30 more.

Nassar arrested about 18,000 Muslim Brotherhood members in 1965 under rumors of a planned insurrection and about 38 Brothers were killed, 200 imprisoned, and Seyyid Qutb, along with 2 other Brothers were executed by hanging in 1966.  Nasser died in 1970 and his lieutenant and VP Anwar Sadat took over as President.  Sadat was not as aggressive against the Ikhwan and after he signed the peace treaty with Israel, in which he regained the Sinai, he was assassinated by Islamists within the Egyptian military in 1981.  The assassins acted on a fatwa issued by none other than “The Blind Sheikh” Omar Abdel-Rahman, mastermind of the 1993 World Trade Center

bombing. Rahman is also a student of Seyyid Qutb.

When Anwar Sadat was assassinated there were several others killed and over 20 people wounded.  Hosni Mubarak was among the wounded.

The fate of Egypt is in the hands of who ever can keep in power.  History has shown that little more matters in Northern Africa.  As has been the case for the last century, the West’s interests in the region, and those citizens of those countries who do not adhere to a Muslim Brotherhood’s ideology, aka Sharia law, are at the mercy of the power holders.  When the American President calls upon a people to support the Muslim Brotherhood, an organization who believes that Sharia Law must be the governing authority, and then assists the MB in gaining power, he must bear responsibility for the consequences.  Those consequences include Coptic Christians, as well as Jews, who have been terrorized, killed, beaten and burned out by the consenting voices of the Muslim Brotherhood government (Morsi).   Obama owns that.

Egypt has officially declared the Muslim Brotherhood to be a “terrorist organization”.  On March 24, 2014, the new Egyptian government which took down the short-lived Muslim Brotherhood government after it terrorized its own minority citizens, tried 1200 Brotherhood members.  528 have been found guilty of murder and have been sentenced to death.  The remainder have yet to be sentenced.  Time will reveal whether Egypt will actually carry out the sentences, but it sure looks as if the country has had a belly full of the Muslim Brotherhood.  Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates have even gone so far as to declare Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist organization!

Yet the Obama administration not only continues to voice support for the MB in Egypt, it has ongoing domestic relations with many Muslim Brotherhood organizations, and their members, in the United States.  Council on Islamic-American Relations (CAIR), Muslim Students Assn (MSA), Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA), (and the list goes on!) all Muslim Brotherhood sanctioned Islamist activist groups working inside the United States with one goal:  Islamizing the United States of America.  This is not simply a loose accusation-it is a proven fact supported by the Muslim Brotherhood’s own “Strategic Plan for Islam in North America”.  (Yes, it’s in Arabic but if you scroll down to page 16 you get the English translation)

Under Nasser, Egypt was an ally to the USSR.  Sadat opened up to Western alliances and was an important ally to the US during the cold war era, and contributed to the security of Israel.  Now, after a perceived betrayal by the United States under Mr. Obama, Russia is once again at the forefront of Egypt’s allied partners.  What a pity that Vladimer Putin was handed the opportunity to take the high moral road in both Egypt and Syria, where hesitation from the US resulted in Al-Qaida and it’s allies to basically wrench the uprising against another evil dictator, Bashir Assad, out of control of forces friendly to the United States.  This has led to a sadly impotent foreign policy which is of no practical use concerning The Crimea and yet to be seen aggression by Russia.   Turkey is now the next one who appears to be falling under Putin’s spell, as a result of a lack of trust or confidence in America, and has already been taken from the inside by the Islamist movement.  There will be more to come on this for sure!

I will be keenly interested in Obama’s response to this death sentence and condemnation of the Muslim Brotherhood… or lack thereof.  Stay tuned…

 





Video: So God Made a Liberal

12 03 2014

Ok, you can keep all your theological corrections to yourself, and look beyond the gravity of the state of our Union for just about 3 minutes.  This video is a parody of the late, great Paul Harvey’s “God Made a Farmer”  speech in 1978.   Paul was an icon to “common sense America” for 40 years.   Clips from that speech were used in a Dodge truck ad for the 2013 Superbowl, and breathed new fame into the nearly forgotten lines delivered to the nation’s Future Farmers of America so long ago.  Whoever did this parody studied Mr. Harvey a bit prior to this version.  I had emailed the link last year, but it came up in a recent discussion group and several requested it again.

Sometimes a little humor can alleviate the pain of reality that keeps smacking you in the face.  Laughter has thus been called “the best medicine” by Readers Digest, and it really helps to laugh at yourself…sometimes…but the rest of the time it’s more fun to laugh at the other guys!  I think Mr. Harvey would approve!  H/T to Soopermexican





No Political Fix to America’s Death Spiral

11 03 2014

Guest Column from GOPUSA by Matt Barber.  I have never met Matt but I think I know him quite well. He is singing my song here!  This is one of the best columns I have read for a long time.

The question is not, “Is America falling?” but, rather, “Why is America falling?”

I’m currently writing from CPAC 2014, the nation’s largest gathering of conservative political junkies. The event is being held at the beautiful Gaylord National hotel, adjacent to the scenic shoreline of the historic Potomac River. We’re just a few short miles from Washington, D.C., which, at least for now, remains the modern-day equivalent of the Roman Empire.

I say “at least for now” because America finds itself skipping along the primrose path to Rome’s ill-fated finale. I needn’t trouble you with evidence to that effect as this tragic reality is hopelessly inescapable. It’s a self-evident truth. Unless our next generation of leaders – Gen-Y Millennials – can successfully turn things around, we’re up the Potomac without a paddle.

The day’s speeches have ended and conference-going night revelers are about. The indoor balcony to my 12th-floor room faces, as the hotel website accurately boasts, a “spectacular 18-story glass atrium.” My balcony door is open wide, and the bustling din from several parties across the cavernous vestibule soaks the room.

A chorus has begun. What is this? Have party-goers launched an impromptu rendering of “America the Beautiful”?

No, this is a chant, joined by scores – a hundred or more perhaps – of young conservative bacchanalians on multiple suite balconies and from the open air bar below. What is that they’re chanting? Is that, “Amer-i-ca! Amer-i-ca!”?

At first, it’s hard to tell. It’s a booming echo that reverberates throughout the entire hotel.

And then it becomes clear.

Alas, our next generation of conservative leaders are not chanting, “Amer-i-ca! Amer-i-ca!” They are, instead, chanting, “F*** O-bama! F*** O-bama!”

And I hang my head.

So, now, children at the hotel, parents, staff, tourists – both foreign and domestic – and every other conceivable variety of guest who happens to be staying at the Gaylord National hotel during CPAC 2014 has a skewed, and likely irreversible, first impression of America’s conservative movement.

Or is it skewed?

Now, don’t get me wrong, I’m certain that the vast majority of CPAC attendees, both young and old, are as appalled and embarrassed by these drunken yuck monkeys as am I.

But I think the very fact that these blazer-clad, Cro-Magnon morons could even imagine, for a moment, that it’s somehow cool to publicly chant “F*** Obama!” – or “F***” anything for that matter – speaks to a much larger problem, not just within the conservative movement, but, more importantly, within our entire culture.

I’m never going to win a popularity contest. It’s not my goal to be liked. I’ll probably never be a “Fox News contributor” or even broadly recognized as a dutifully compliant cog within the greater, GOP-heavy “conservative” political wheel.

That’s because I say things like this: There is no political fix to America’s death spiral.

We are drowning in a turgid river of postmodern relativism. This is a spiritual problem, not a political problem. This is a worldview matter, not a partisan matter.

Hitherto it has been “progressives” alone dumping buckets of moral relativist poison into the Potomac. But, in the last decade or so, self-styled “conservatives” have likewise begun drinking the subjectivist Kool-Aid.

Libertine libertarianism has infected the conservative movement like a cancer. Situational ethics, driven by emotional, anecdotal sob stories, are used to justify every moral wrong as an absolute right. “Get off the social issues!” they demand. “Gay marriage? No problem.”

These gun-toting, free-market “conservatives” (of which I’m both) grace us with beauties like this: “I’m a ‘pro-choice,’ ‘pro-gay’ conservative,” or, “Yeah, I’m shacking up with my girlfriend, big deal.”

Relativism blurs the fixed lines of demarcation between right and wrong, which leads to the abolition of absolute truth, which leads to pockets of moral anarchy, which leads to Barack Obama and Eric Holder deciding which laws to ignore and which laws to enforce, which leads to lawlessness, which leads to chaos.

Welcome to chaos.

Yes. The “social issues” matter.

The battle is not Republican vs. Democrat. Neither is it conservative vs. liberal. The battle precedes time itself. The battle is right vs. wrong. The battle is moral vs. immoral. The battle is truth vs. the lie.

The battle is between good and evil.

We’ve been playing political Ping-Pong for decades. We’ve been, as they say, rearranging the chairs on the Titanic while Democrats take the helm for a spell, and Republicans take the helm for a spell.

The reality is that both political parties have driven us into the iceberg, and then pranced off together, hand-in-hand, to play best-of-three racquetball at the congressional bathhouse.

While here at CPAC I met an interesting fellow by the name of Frank Mitchell. Frank founded the Memphis-based, classically conservative group: “A Shining City on a Hill.” During our discussion, Frank said this: “There is no liberty without justice. Liberty without justice is only license.”

Libertine libertarianism.

America cannot survive under a worldview that embraces unrestricted moral license. Such license destroys the individual. And such license destroys the nation.

“Liberty without justice is only license.”

There is only one Arbiter of true justice. And justice is defined by Him, not by us. He sets the parameters. As both individuals, and as a nation, we are ill-advised to breach those parameters and well-served to maintain them.

America does not need a political fix. America needs a spiritual fix.

Turkey PM tells Obama to take care of Pennsylvania-based Islamist Gulen

8 03 2014

And now the power struggle between Islamists begins to suck the American government in. The Obama administration has been so friendly to all facets of the Islamist movement within the US, (with the only named exception being “Al-Qaida”, who he actually supports in Syria), that no thought has been given to the the players, and what their seperate agendas may be. Turkey’s Prime MInister Recep Erdogen, an Islamist in his own right, is now openly challenging the Gulenist’s educational (dawa) system and is asking Obama to “take care” of Erdogen’s problem, Fethullah Gulen who resides in Pennsylvania. Obama now will have to choose between his Islamist friend on the international Islamist field, or his Islamist friend Gulen who’s domestic agenda is to enlighten the United States as well as the rest of the world to the “blessing” of Islam… Interesting times, indeed!

Federal Overreach-Did You Know?

5 02 2014

Forrest Knox is State Senator for the 14th District in Kansas.  He puts out a weekly newsletter to keep his constituants up to date on happenings at the Capital, just as many other Legislators do.  He is not my Senator but I do receive his letters, and I appreciated his last so much I asked his permission to include it here in its entirety.

 Federal Overreach – Did You Know?

February 2, 2014

 Did you know that SB 276 enacts the state sovereignty over non-migratory wildlife act?  The bill states that Kansas is successfully managing the prairie chicken and that this is none of the U.S. government’s business (my paraphrase).

Did you know that the 2nd Amendment protection act was passed last year protecting the sovereign right of Kansans to manufacture and possess firearms within Kansas without federal interference?

Did you know that the federal government is exerting its reach into more and more parts of our lives that are outside its constitutional function and that further legislation is being considered to limit the federal government when it comes to environmental issues, healthcare issues, etc.?

 Did you know that the U.S. Constitution clearly delineates the powers and function of the federal government and makes clear, in the 10th Amendment, that “powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.”  The 9th Amendment clearly states that “the enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.”

Did you know that the Democratic Republic of Korea, North Korea, has a constitution which clearly delineates “genuine democratic rights and liberties” of its citizens; equal rights for all its citizens “irrespective of sex, race, occupation, length of residence, property status, education, party affiliation, political views, or religion?” Which defines the fact that the state’s sovereignty resides in its people; that the “organs of state power” are “elected on the principle of universal, equal and direct suffrage by secret ballot;” that these elected bodies have “close ties with their constituents and are accountable to them;” that the elected officials can be recalled “if the latter are not to be trusted?”  That “the State shall guarantee conditions for the free activity of democratic political parties and social organizations?”  That “citizens are guaranteed freedom of speech, of the press, of assembly, demonstration and association” and “freedom of religious beliefs?”

In the North Korean constitution “citizens are entitled to free medical care; freedom to reside in and travel to any place;” that “marriages and the family shall be protected by the State” which “pays great attention to consolidating the family, the basic unit of social life.”

Their constitution guarantees private property; an eight-hour workday; a hygienic work environment; prohibits child labor; includes a compulsory, free 11-year public education system including preschool; and provides for protection for the environment.

Did you know that recently 80 North Korean citizens were executed in an arena full of people, machine-gunned down, for offenses such as possessing Bibles?

Did you know that virtually all authoritarian governments on earth have such constitutions guaranteeing rights?

Did you know that a constitution and the laws of government are not worth the paper they’re written on unless they are enforced?  If the government will not obey its own laws, or must “regulate” the rights of citizens…?

Did you know that the U.S. Declaration of Independence states that, “all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government.”

Kinda gives you pause for a little cogitation, doesn’t it?





Laws of Nature…and Duck Commander

24 12 2013

Phil Robertson of “Duck Dynasty”, via MailOnline

Up until just a couple of weeks ago I had never seen an episode of  “Duck Dynasty”, the mega-hit cable channel A&E’s “reality” show.  Stands to reason, as we don’t have cable, or satellite TV.  It’s just something I can’t get good with; paying for television reception, subscribing to radio programming, and having a phone that can more than my desktop computer.  Ok, maybe my wife has a little influence on some of those things, but she’s a “pioneer woman” and makes “Miss Kay” look like a pampered city gal!  Yep, I could tell you some stories, but she reads this, so…yeah.

Anyway, some friends loaned us the first season of “Duck Dynasty” on dvd and we watched the entire season in about three settings.  Halfway through the 2nd episode my wife looks at me and says, “This could be you and the ‘Williams boys’!”  I smiled, picked up the remote and turned up the volume.  I must admit, she has a good point.

The reason myself and the “Williams boys” didn’t play sports in high school was it got in the way of hunting and fishing, and part-time jobs.  Someday I’ll write a book…

The boys and I were, admittedly, unchurched, irreligious heathen who would consider spending an hour in church on Sunday morning sacrilegious, or at least a poor time management decision.  A boy can shoot a lot of squirrels “still hunting” in one hour.  Little did I know, even with that attitude, I was getting an education in the finer points of theology.   There are endless applications in nature of theological truths.  Things like:

*If you need to drink out of the creek be sure it’s moving and follow it downstream for a ways to make sure no dead cows are layin’ in it!  (Ok, not advisable to normal humans.)

*A copperhead snake will chase you, especially if you’re screaming.  (So, I was 5 years old…Obviously, it made an impression!)

*Your dad may be throwing rocks in your direction and yelling “Shut up!”, but he’s not trying to stone you… He’s trying to stop the copperhead snake that is chasing you with intent to kill!

*Don’t let your coonhound swim after the racoon which is trying to lure him into the deep water, unless you’re willing to join him in the fight to save his stupid canine posterior.

*Hunting seasons are in place to advance the propagation of game animals, and are enforced by the state for the protection of species.  (Many laws of man are complimentary to the laws of nature.)

*Bucks like doe’s…and…doe’s like bucks.

I know, these are, for the most part, fairly obvious.  But there is a national debate which has gained a larger audience just in the last week or so, which wasn’t quite so obvious to many until the “Duck Commander”, Phil Robertson gave his honest answer to a question from a GQ Magazine reporter, who may, or may not have had an agenda.  Had we not just watched several episodes of the popular show, I may have just sat this one out.  However, I have watched the story unfold on a daily basis since it broke last week, and, having previously established a position on the subject that drew so much fire, I feel somewhat negligent if I fail to make a few comments, most of which I have published before.

As I perused the comments of many of the stories accusing Phil Robertson of “homophobia”, “hate”, “bigotry”, “racism”, “hate speech”, and other vile names which will not be printed here, I came across one particularly interesting story where a Methodist pastor was advocating for same-sex marriage.  Said preacher had recently been “defrocked” by his denomination when he married his “gay” son and his “significant other”.  I made a few respectful observations on various stories and was immediately the target of LGBT militants/advocates.   One story on a CNN blogsite asked the question, “Does Phil Robertson get the Bible Wrong?”.   You can read it but to save your time and keep you on my blogsite, I’ll just sum it up as a liberal reporter finds a couple of liberal’s with a seminary degree to do some “scholarly” gymnastics to say the Bible doesn’t really say what it says, particularly concerning homosexuality.   Somewhere amid the over 5K comments (so far) I made the statement to the effect of, “Do what you must to justify your behavior, this is the most acrobatically obtuse foray into Biblical exegesis I have ever witnessed…” and immediately was challenged that “Jesus never mentioned homosexuality”, and if I were a true Christian I would not make such “hypocritical” statements.

I have also been told by these “gentle spirits” and “true Christians” that the Old Testament passages (such as Lev. 19:22-23 forbidding men to lay with other men and inter-species copulation, e.i. bestiality) are null and void since Jesus cancelled out the Law.  I am assuming they also mean to say that murder is no longer forbidden, and you should be able to take whatever you want from your neighbor’s house, including his wife…eh?

[As a point of clarification, the New Testament begins at the ‘death of the Testator’, Christ, according to Hebrews and every estate judge in the land. Jesus walked the Earth in an Old Testament economy. Yeah, I know…it’ll take a minute to grasp that one!]

At any rate, these arguments are often used as “proof” that Jesus never condemned homosexuality and thus Christians, who refer to the Bible when opposing these types of moral issues, are just wrong.

Ok, a Biblical response:

Firstly, Jesus Himself declared in Matthew 5:17-18 that He did not come to destroy the Law and the Prophets (Old Testament) but to fulfill it. Then He goes on to say that until “heaven and earth pass” not even a punctuation mark will be changed in the Law till it is fulfilled. He further states that if you break one commandment you have broken them all (v.19 and James 2:10, [he was half-brother of Jesus]), and that not only the actual doing of the thing, but the very thought of the sin is enough to condemn you. “If you look upon a maid to lust after her, you have committed adultery in your heart already.”(Matt 5:21-28)

As a matter of fact, Jesus does speak against fornication (sexual intercourse outside of marriage) which includes not only homosexual activity, but also extra-marital heterosexual activity, pedophilia, incest, bestiality and so forth. While Jesus does not specifically name “homosexuality”, neither does he specifically name “incest, pedophilia, or bestiality”.

Does lack of specific mention codify or legitimize sexual intercourse with a minor child or animal, or even necrophilia (with the dead)? I would hope that you would agree that it doesn’t. I would allow that certain individuals may have a predisposed propensity for homosexual attraction, but so do pedophiles, and zoophiles. Alcoholics also have a predisposed propensity for their weakness. If these could not be controlled there would be no “sober” alcoholics, just as there would be no “former” homosexuals. Obviously there are many who have overcome these predispositions.

The question of sexuality is not even necessarily a simple “religious” question concerning morality but is as much a scientific or biological question and environment plays a huge role in development. What is the purpose of copulation in nature? In nature every species “mates,” only at specific times, for one purpose: Propagation of the species. Ours is the only species (except one) that is capable of spontaneous copulation, or “recreational” intercourse (for mutual pleasure), propagation of the species notwithstanding, and the only one who can look into the eyes of our mate while engaged. (The Bible says the “eyes are the window to the soul”; thus for humans, sex is a spiritual act of communion as well.)

Nonetheless, the baser “natural” lust of mankind, becomes tempered by morality; a philosophical if not religious attitude that contains our urges, lest we succumb to our “desires” in every public venue. So then, there are advantages to societal limitations (moral guidelines, if you will) on what behavior is ‘acceptable’ and where, especially when you consider public viewing of these activities, age of consent (pedophilia), interspecies copulation (bestiality) and so on. Everyone lives according to someone’s morality, even if they claim to be amoral. Society demands it.

Statistically speaking: After a quick check via Google, a United Nations website, unaids.org, netted some startling facts.  In North America, parts of Latin America, Australia, New Zealand and most of Europe, 70% of all AIDS cases are transmitted by male on male intercourse.  (The remainder of cases are attributed mostly to injection drug use .)  As many as 56% of those (70%) are suspected of bisexual activity, which then calculates into 39 of 100 women engaging in intercourse with bisexual men can be exposed to HIV. The average life expectancy of a homosexual male is early 40’s. Not only does HIV/AIDS weigh in heavily but a myriad of other sexually transmitted diseases (STD’s) create health problems along with drug usage, which more often than not is a factor. It is a very destructive lifestyle and when Kinsey was doing his infamous sex studies, less than 1% of his homosexual men were 60+. A 2008 published study shows the overwhelming majority of deaths in homosexual men occur between ages of 25-45.

The logical conclusion to the matter is that open sexual activity which is harmful to society therefore is, and must be regulated; if not by law, then at least by some moral principle which has been established by that society in order to maintain a social order which will preserve and propagate the society.

The problem beginning to emerge here is not  that LGBT’s want to do what they do, but demanding that the rest of society embrace or condone it. I don’t care what you do in the privacy of your bedroom. I just don’t want government telling me I have to embrace it by providing you that bedroom to do it in,  condone your sexual behavior by being forced by a judge to make a cake for your gay wedding reception (in a state which doesn’t even recognize same-sex marriage), or photograph it by court order.

These court actions are in direct violation of the United States Constitution’s guarantee of “Freedom of Association” and the  right of “Free excercise of Religion“.   These rights are delineated hand in hand with our ‘Freedom of Speech” in the First Amendment because they are fundamental, and the Founders foresaw a time when Government would attempt to curb those rights necessary to maintain a free and moral society.  We are not far from the point that Christians will not be allowed to run for certain offices (violation of Article VI)  or hold some government positions.  Yes, Apartheid is coming to America; mark it down!

Yes Phil has it right, and he has the right to say it.  And if you study those 6 theological lessons I learned from the “Laws of Nature and Nature’s God”, you’ll find more Biblical truth than you might expect!

Hearkening back to “What would Jesus Do?” I can’t help but pose the thought that those practicing homosexuality and refuse the call of Jesus to “go and sin no more” are no different from those people who refuse to repent of any other sin, be it another “lust of the flesh, lust of the eyes, or the pride of life”. God is not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. Experiencing God is not just for the afterlife; it is for this life. This is the “abundant life” that Jesus spoke of.

A person who refuses reconciliation with God either thinks himself too great, or God too small.
