In Mourning For America…

In Mourning For America...

I am mourning for America, because she is dying.

I am mourning for a nation that once knew such greatness but that has now fallen to depths that were once unimaginable.  I am mourning for the death and destruction that are coming, and I am mourning for a future that our children and our grandchildren will never get to see.  I am mourning for a nation that has refused to listen to the warnings and that now stands on the precipice of judgment.  I am mourning for games that will never be played, for books that will never be finished, for family vacations that will never get to happen and for memories that will never be made.  I am mourning for the economic depression that is coming, for the horror and suffering that friends and family will endure, and for the coming death of the country where I drew my first breath.

To many, these words will seem “over the top” and overly dramatic.  After all, despite the thousands of problems facing this nation, things still seem very “normal” at this moment.  Well, if you don’t “get” what I am saying right now, just bookmark this page and come back to it later.  Eventually it will make sense to you.

Last week, I was invited to be a guest on a major television show that is beamed into the homes of millions of people in the United States and Canada.  If you get a chance to view the shows that are being aired this week, you will notice that I wore all black.

I wasn’t just making a fashion statement.  I was doing it because I am in mourning for America.  Unlike so many that talk about the horrible things that are ahead for this country, I actually love the United States.  I truly wish that this nation had become everything that it could have become.  I love the part of the country where I currently live, I love the amazing people that I am constantly meeting, and I love the things that I have been able to experience just because I am an American.

Unfortunately, everything is about to change.

There are many out there that believe that America is still a great nation.  Well, great nations do not murder tens of millions of their own children.  As Dr. Chuck Missler has pointed out, the most dangerous place to be in America today is in a mother’s womb.

Since Roe v. Wade was decided in 1973, more than 56 million babies have been purposely destroyed in this country.

What does a nation that has murdered 56 million of its own children deserve?

I believe that we have just come out of a season of time when America has been shown exactly why it is about to be judged.

It is no accident that the undercover Planned Parenthood videos were released when they were.  Now the entire world knows that we slaughter our babies, harvest their organs and sell them off to the highest bidder.

So what has the response of the American people been to the revelation of this great evil?

Yes, a small minority of Americans have gotten upset, but most people have been completely unmoved by this news.

Our government gives Planned Parenthood hundreds of millions of dollars each year, and that isn’t going to change.  Planned Parenthood is just going to keep doing what they do, and the American people are just going to go back to ignoring the unprecedented holocaust that is happening behind closed doors all over the nation.

This past summer we also witnessed what I believe is the perfect bookend for the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision of 1973.  The institution of marriage was permanently altered in all 50 states, and most of the nation greatly rejoiced.

The White House was lit up with rainbow colors to honor what the Supreme Court did.  The rainbow is a symbol of God’s covenant with Noah, and in the book of Revelation there is a rainbow around the throne of God.  They have taken this symbol that belongs to God, and they are using it as a symbol of their defiance.

Of course these things that I have just mentioned are just the tip of the iceberg.  The truth is that evil is growing in this nation in thousands of different ways.  Every year there are 20 million new cases of sexually transmitted disease in the United States, we have the highest divorce rate in the entire industrialized world, and nearly one out of every five American women say that they have been raped at some point in their lives.  In the United States today, there are 60 million people that abuse alcohol and there are 22 million people that use illegal drugs.  America produces more pornography than the rest of the world combined, and surveys have found that Christian men use it at just about the same rate as everyone else.

I will not be publishing an article tomorrow.  In a few hours, Yom Kippur will begin where I live.  It is the most solemn of all the holidays described in the Bible, and it is a time of repentance.  I will be praying for myself, my family, my community and my nation.

If America had repented as a nation and had turned from her wicked ways, we would not have to go through the things that we are about to go through.

I believe that the time of grace that the United States has been given to repent is ending.

I know that this is very different from my usual format.  Is it okay if I just share what is on my heart from time to time?  On Thursday I will get back to sharing the facts, figures and hard information that you all have come to expect from me.  But today when I woke up I just felt that I should share these things with you.

Very shortly, things are going to start changing in a major way.

America is dying, and the hardest times that any of us have ever seen are right in front of us.

Most-often-used myths still pushed at us by the homosexual activists…

What is a “myth”?  It is something that is not true. Something that has no basis in fact, logic, or reality.

MYTH: A “one man and one woman” definition imposes a religious definition of marriage on civil society.
REALITY: The definition of marriage is rooted in nature itself. The sexual union of a man and a woman is what reproduces the human race. The durable commitment of that man and woman to one another is what provides children with a mother and father. This is important for people of any religion or of no religion.

 

MYTH: Children don’t actually need both a mother and a father.
REALITY: An overwhelming body of social science evidence demonstrates that children raised by their own mother and father, who are committed to one another in a lifelong marriage, are happier, healthier and more prosperous than children raised in any other household setting.

 

MYTH: Marriage can’t be about procreation, because infertile couples are allowed to marry.
REALITY: Laws are based on the rule, not the exception. While not all heterosexual couples do reproduce, it is indisputable that only heterosexual couples can do so naturally. No homosexual couples can do so. That fact provides a clear bright line for limiting marriage to opposite-sex couples.

 

MYTH: Legalizing homosexual “marriage” would have no effect on other marriages and families.
REALITY: “The law is a teacher,” and if we change the definition of marriage we will change what we teach about all marriages and families. For example:
-We would teach – wrongly – that procreation is no longer a uniquely important public interest.
-We would teach – wrongly – that children do not need a mother and a father.
-We would teach that adult desires, not the interests of society or the needs of children, should drive the definition of marriage.

 

MYTH: Defining marriage as the union of one man and one woman is “discrimination.”
REALITY: Every individual has the same access to marriage, but no one has been permitted to marry a child, a close blood relative, a person who is already married, or (through most of human history) a person of the same sex. Removing the last restriction would cast doubt on all the others.

 

MYTH: Homosexual relationships are the same as heterosexual ones.
REALITY: Research has proven that homosexuals are less likely to enter into long-term partnerships, be sexually faithful, or have relationships that last a lifetime. Legal recognition of same-sex unions in Scandinavia has led to a weakening of society’s commitment to marriage across the board.

 

MYTH: Homosexuals suffer serious harm because they’re denied the “protections” of marriage.
REALITY: Many of these “protections” are already available to same-sex couples through the use of private contractual arrangements, such as wills, durable power of attorney, health care proxies, and life insurance policies.

 

MYTH: Homosexuals are unable to care for their own children if they cannot “marry.”
REALITY: A biological parent has the same rights whether the individual is heterosexual or homosexual. States, if they choose to, can provide for homosexual couples to adopt children without changing the definition of marriage. However, recent research shows that children of homosexual parents suffer significant disadvantages. It is not in children’s best interest for society to actively affirm a family structure that may harm them.

 

MYTH: Laws “banning same-sex marriage” are the same as the old laws that banned interracial marriage.
REALITY: It is actually the supporters of homosexual “marriage” who resemble the opponents of interracial marriage. Both groups sought to exploit the marriage laws in pursuit of a social goal irrelevant to marriage. Neither racial segregation (in the one case) nor the social affirmation of homosexual conduct (in the other) was or is related to the basic public purpose of marriage, which is promoting responsible procreation and the rearing of children in the optimal family setting.

 

MYTH: Legalizing homosexual “marriage” would not affect anyone’s religious liberty or conscience rights.
REALITY: All taxpayers, consumers and businesses would be forced to provide allowances for homosexual relationships, whether they want to or not. Schools would teach children that homosexual relationships are an option fully equivalent to heterosexual ones, even in opposition to parental teaching. Faith-based organizations and individuals would be forced to compromise their beliefs, or be punished or driven from the public square.

 

As the Supreme Court prepares to hear arguments on whether the U.S. Constitution includes a “right” to marry someone of the same sex, they – and the public – should be extremely wary of falling for these untruths.
[by Peter Sprigg of the Family Research Council]

NORM ‘n’ AL Note:  One of the longest-used justifications for homosexuality is “I was born that way.” The “born that way” myth (“no basis in fact, logic, or reality”) is very simple to refute on more than one level. If someone is supposedly “born that way” and later chooses to leave the homosexual lifestyle — as MANY people have — this should immediately show us that they actually were not born that way at all. These people CHOSE the queer lifestyle just as they CHOSE to leave it. The minute someone chooses to leave the homosexual lifestyle, the “born that way” myth is completely shattered. In addition, it is more than obvious that nature is designed around maleness and femaleness. Breeding to continue the species, ANY species, is the fact of life in living creatures. When God calls homosexuality “an abomination” in the Bible, He does so because it goes against His design of the world He created. Lastly, it is beyond dispute by research done over many years that children who are brought up by same-sex partners are very often irreparably harmed by the experience. Why in the world would we want to subject children to more of this damage by legalizing same-sex marriage?

Under The Rainbow: US Circuit Court discovers sordid and abusive side of gay “parenting”…

The 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals is currently reviewing three same-sex “marriage” cases, including a lower court ruling by District Judge Martin Feldman, who became the first federal judge to exhibit proper judicial restraint when he unflinchingly rendered his legal decision in support of traditional marriage. Last September, Judge Feldman upheld Louisiana’s 2004 amendment to their constitution defining marriage as the union of one man and one woman which was overwhelmingly approved by 78% of voters in the Pelican State. The judge stated in his ruling, “Marriage is a legitimate concern of state law and policy, and that it may be rightly regulated because of what for centuries has been its role.” We can only hope that the 5th Circuit located in New Orleans will follow suit and affirm Feldman’s constitutionally aligned decision in support of the will of the people and the right of states – Texas, Louisiana, and Mississippi – to protect and defend real marriage.

The legal proceedings associated with this crucial case have also facilitated in exposing the sordid underbelly of same-sex parenting. As the Washington Times reported, “Four adult children of ‘gay’ parents — acting as a ‘quartet of truth’ — have submitted briefs to the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals opposing same-sex ‘marriages,’ with several saying that growing up under the rainbow was neither normal nor pleasant.”

 

Although counterfeit “marriage” is now permitted in 36 states and Washington D.C., everything is not all hunky-dory for the estimated 220,000 children that are presently being raised by homosexual parents. In her brief to the 5th Circuit, Dawn Stefanowicz described her home life as bizarre and morally twisted. She wrote that her “gay” father was so obsessed with sex that when she brought a male classmate home from high school, both her father and his lover shamelessly propositioned him for sex.
“Your childhood is divided to please the adults,” Stefanowicz wrote, based upon her 30 years of experience with the LGBT subculture and dialogue with dozens of other adult children who were raised by homosexual parents. Ms. Stefanowicz further explained that due to the absence of either or both biological parents “our home environments have unique and unstable characteristics.” And that’s putting it very mildly. The Washington Times article from last Thursday presented many of the graphic and abusive aspects of life in a sex-saturated, same-sex household:

Ms. Stefanowicz said she “absolutely” loved her father, who died of AIDS in 1991, but he was a troubled man who sexually abused both her and her twin brother and brought countless men into their home.

“I was exposed to overt sexual activities like sodomy, nudity, pornography, group sex, sadomasochism and the ilk,” wrote Ms. Stefanowicz, adding that her father sometimes took her on his “cruising” visits to gay art galleries, nude beaches and public parks.

Like other daughters of gay men she has talked with, Ms. Stefanowicz said she felt she — and her femininity — were not valued or affirmed.

“Ultimately, I was seeking his love and acceptance. [But] I was not allowed to freely question him, bring up moral arguments or hurt his feelings, or I would face long-term repercussions,” Ms. Stefanowicz wrote.

 

Another member of the “quartet of truth,” Katy Faust, wrote in her brief that every child enters this world with two basic human rights. “First, the right to live,” she stated, and “Second, the right to have a relationship with his/her father and mother.” But unnatural “marriage” absolutely guarantees that the latter of those two rights will invariably be ripped from a child by intentionally depriving them of a least one biological parent.

Despite the absence of any criticism regarding her lesbian parents, Faust is still urging the 5th Circuit to preserve man-woman marriage laws and state constitutional amendments. “It wasn’t until I had children of my own that the wholeness and worth of having both father and mother raising their children together hit me like a freight train,” Faust asserted, “marriage law should always encourage and promote that ideal of mothers and fathers parenting their children together.”

 

B.N. Klein, a third traumatized adult child of “gay” parents, noted the “utter contempt” expressed by her mother and lesbian partner for heterosexual families. Her isolation from the “inferior” straight culture was so comprehensive that it wasn’t until she was placed in foster care that she finally realized the extent to which her mind had been poisoned. Klein sadly stated, “I had no idea how two heterosexuals behaved toward their children as mother and father,” adding that her lesbian “mothers” who are both deceased can “never hurt me again.”

Klein also described how she was expected to pay “constant homage and attention” to her mothers’ lesbian lifestyle. She was taught to believe that LGBT individuals were “much more creative and artistic” because they were uninhibited by the sexual repression experienced by heterosexuals.

Klein further emphasized the fact that pretend same-sex “marriage” typically elevates parental narcissism far above the bests interests and welfare of children. As Klein pointedly put it in her brief, “While I do not believe all gays would be de facto bad parents, I know that the gay community has never in my lifetime put children first as anything other than a piece of property, a past mistake or a political tool to be dressed up and taken out as part of a dog-and-pony show to impress the well-meaning.”

 

The Washington Times article included the insightful details of Robert Oscar Lopez’s legal brief to the court as well. In it, he presented his personal perspective on the inherent shortcomings of gender-nullifying “marriage.”

Robert Oscar Lopez said his two lesbian mothers were conscientious about his upbringing, but he became so emotionally confused that he turned to gay prostitution as a teen and gay and bisexual relationships as an adult.

Mr. Lopez said he and other children of gays feel “pain” — but it’s because there’s a “missing biological parent,” not because people lack legal marriage.  He said his childhood exposure to radical Catholic liberation theology and talk about “the beauty of homosexual relationships” led him into years of sexual experimentation, including taking money for sex with men.

A reunion with his long-estranged father led to his escape from the “toxic” gay family life, said Mr. Lopez, who is now married to his girlfriend and is also a father.

Based upon nothing more than the self-serving desires of homosexual activists, marriage is being radically morphed into an unrecognizable monstrosity of its former self. It’s like some kind of ghoulish “gay” adaptation of The Island of Dr. Moreau gone horribly awry. And America’s most vulnerable among us have tragically become the helpless guinea pigs.

These eye-opening testimonials from the “quartet of truth” shed much-needed light upon the devastating repercussions of the Left’s misguided social experiment in all its gory details. We must rein in this madness before many more children are forced to suffer needlessly.

The 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals would be wise to refrain from acting like judicial oligarchs by overstepping their constitutionally-imposed boundaries. The justices should do the right thing and heed the voices of the victimized, who know firsthand what they’re talking about. A display of such exceptional legal restraint would actually be quite refreshing, and it’s long overdue.
