How you can help change the world in the new year ahead…

Was 2014 a year of darkness in America? Or was it a year of hidden promise?

I think it’s the latter, because there are many hopeful harbingers for 2015. Despite some disturbing, jaw-dropping events of the past year, we really aren’t at the mercy of cowardly Republicans, demonic Democrats, vicious feminists and homosexual bullies. These fools present great challenges to American culture, to freedom and to the rule of law, but in many ways, they are in self-destruction mode.

While we pray for any individuals who can be pulled out of the coming fire, let’s assist their causes toward a sure demise.

How? By telling the truth—relentlessly!

Indeed, 2014 was the “Year of the Paper Tiger.” Now it’s time to file last year as history and plan a stellar future. Let’s start by remembering the lesson of the November elections. What a powerful exercise by “We the People,” showing that Joe and Jane America really do understand what’s at stake.

So let’s grab that change-orientation and maintain the momentum. Still, some people will sigh over problems that seem too big for any one person. Some will contend that the destruction of America has already gone too far. Not true! Here’s how you can make a significant and culture-changing difference in the coming months:

  1. First, remember that as believers, Almighty God is right beside us. We are encouraged to be overcomers (Rev.3:21 ). It’s really God’s fight and we are simply His warriors, if we choose to be. So, join God’s battalion and start by understanding military readiness. It’s not simply a defensive fight. We must willingly, even enthusiastically, push back!

The loony left does not represent America and their ideas are mostly poison. Let me make it clear, I am not advocating civil unrest or violence here (like liberals sometimes do), but in the public square of reasonable debate over public policy, don’t let them get away with calculated deception, obfuscation, and other evil nonsense. Expose mythology for what it is.

Don’t be afraid to say, “Not true!” when some maintain that sodomy and abortion are the high ground, that children should be encouraged to change genders, that Americans are all racists and that Christianity is hateful. Get ready to say NO and shine the light of reality back at them.

  1. So, how do we do this? Commit to at least one “push back” activity each week. Make one phone call to a corporate supporter of “LGBT” deviance, or send one email to a pro-abortion politician. Make an online comment challenging anti-Christian bigotry, and be sure to call your child’s school and object to anti-American, pro-Marxist lessons.

Here’s a good place to start: the erroneously-named “Corporate Equality Index” of the Human Rights Campaign. This pedophile-founded, multi-million dollar homosexual lobbying group is a pretender to high-minded notions of “equality” and “non-discrimination.” HRC is a vicious bully with an empire built on attacking personal sexual integrity, undermining authentic families, promoting deviance and mischaracterizing Christians.

So consult this listing of businesses that have signed on to HRC’s “gay” agenda, and make a call to one each week. Just ask: “Why is your company you supporting the harmful homosexual agenda? No one needs to be homosexual, and no one is born in the wrong sex body. It’s a mistake for your company, and wrong for your employees and for America.”

  1. Get ready for the battle by becoming mentally and spiritually fit. Commit to a regimen of personal improvement, including better nutrition, more exercise, more sleep, less TV, less social media, and more thoughtful reading, starting with Scripture every day. Commit to daily prayer and you will be surprised how motivated you become to make changes at home and in your community.
  1. Make lists for focus and courage. One of the attributes of highly successful people is written goal-setting. It keeps you on task, shows your progress, and propels more action in the future. Your list will give you courage to take even the most daunting steps, to move out of your comfort zone, to dismiss fears of conflict and of being called names. “Discrimination,” “homophobia,” “fundamentalism” are common accusations of debate-avoiders. But they have no merit. On the contrary, you will experience the self-respect of having taken a stand for true godly ideals.
  1. Think about the heartbreaking impact on children. If you hesitate to call Macy’s, Walmart, or Target protesting their support of the homosexual agenda, think about the sordid example they are setting for our nation’s most vulnerable. Call that school board member, or cry “foul” over pornographic content on TV. Remember that our toxic culture is stealing the innocence, draining the life and love out of our offspring. How can they develop qualities of high character in this distorted, sexually-saturated climate? Preserve what’s good about America and give them a chance to develop integrity in a wholesome physical, moral and spiritual environment.
  1. Support those who are unjustly accused. I am thinking of Scott Lively, my longtime pro-family colleague, accused by vicious George Soros-funded “gay” groups of so-called “crimes against humanity.” Or of Barronelle Stutzman and her florist business, Arlene’s Flowers, sued by the ACLU and the Attorney General of the state of Washington simply for declining to provide service for a same sex ceremony. Thankfully, at Barronelle’s recent court hearing, many people showed up holding red flowers, indicating their support for her. That’s what is needed—many more public demonstrations by those who know the facts and don’t accept the distortions of the left.

The devious tactics of wicked people are increasing because they are not being held accountable, so it’s up to those of us who know the truth to support and encourage one another.

  1. Remember that God is on the side of virtue, so dream big dreams! Start a parents’ roundtable to change your local schools. Overturn a local city or school measure upholding “LGBT” behavior. Or take a group to visit the editor of your local paper. Start your own blog, promote it like crazy and write the unvarnished truth. Back a solid conservative political candidate and work tirelessly for his or her election. Or—be that person yourself!

Can we make big changes in 2015? Absolutely! They are already in motion, and you can be part of it. Pray about where God would have you participate, and then get involved. It doesn’t take many voices to make a huge difference.

 

NORM ‘n’ AL Note:  That last sentence is absolutely correct…think about the effect the very small but persistently vocal LGBT lobby has had. This effect is magnified only because the majority of us “normal” Americans do not push back, as this author advises us to do. The author also correctly refers to it as “LGBT deviance.” Be sure you always use those two words together. We have gotten in the habit of referring to “pro-life” and “pro-choice” as the two sides in the abortion battle, but that is only because the “pro-choice” side does not want to be called “pro-death,” which is the opposite of “pro-life.” If you believe in an issue, then believe in truth also. Call things what they are. The opposite of pro-LIFE is pro-DEATH. Because we in the US have not wanted to openly oppose the pro-death side by stating the uncomfortable truth, 60 million Americans have never seen the light of day and will never have an opportunity to achieve their God-given potential. Think how many wonderful and productive citizens we murdered because “pro-choice” clouded the abortion issue in our favor and made it easier to kill all those babies. God will one day hold America accountable for all those needless deaths…and that accountability could well have begun even now. Will the new year ahead be another year of more than a million infant deaths? It will unless more of us speak the truth! Abortion may be convenient, but it is also murder…just as the LGBT “lifestyle” is both selfish and deviant.

New bill in US House seeks to protect religious freedom for those who affirm traditional marriage…

Rep. Raúl Labrador (R-Idaho) is sponsoring a bill in the U.S. House of Representatives that would guarantee that no person or group could lose their tax exempt status for affirming traditional marriage, or opposing the redefinition of marriage.

The Marriage and Religious Freedom Act has, at the time of this publication, 75 co-sponsors. Most of them are Republican, but at least two Democrats, Rep. Mike McIntyre (D-N.C.) and Rep. Dan Lipinski (D-Ill.), are also co-sponsoring the bill.

If enacted, no individual or institution could lose tax-exempt status for believing or advocating that marriage should only be between one man and one woman. Many religious institutions in the United States are non-profits and have a tax-exempt status under the U.S. tax code.

In explaining his reasons for the bill, Labrador cited the words of President Barack Obama, from when Obama announced he changed his position on same-sex marriage.

“Regardless of your ideology, we can all agree about the importance of religious liberty in America,” Labrador said Thursday. “Our bill will protect freedom of conscience for those who believe marriage is the union of one man and one woman. This is not a Republican or Democrat issue. As President Obama said, ‘Americans hold a wide range of views’ on marriage and ‘maintaining our nation’s commitment to religious freedom’ is ‘vital.’ We agree.”

Due to recent events, there has been growing concern among religious freedom advocates along with the redefinition of marriage to include same-sex couples in some states. Those who provide wedding services, for instance, have been denied the right to decline working at same-sex weddings, and some religious groups have been denied the right to prefer families with both a husband and a wife for adoption services.

There have also been growing concerns about the abuse of federal power within the Internal Revenue Service, the agency responsible for granting tax-exempt status. In a scandal still under investigation, the IRS reportedly targeted Tea Party, pro-life and conservative religious groups for additional scrutiny and harassment.

Rep. Steve Scalise, chairman of the Republican Study Committee, mentioned the IRS scandal as one reason for his support of the bill.

“I commend Congressman Raúl Labrador for bringing forth this bill and leading on this important issue. As we’ve seen with the IRS scandals, nonprofit organizations and those who support them may be targeted and punished for their beliefs and principles,” Scalise said. “Furthermore, the Supreme Court’s ruling on marriage may embolden those in government who want to impose their views of marriage on faith-based organizations. We need this strong legislation to protect freedom of conscience for those who believe marriage is the union of one man and one woman. Raúl’s bill does exactly that, ensuring respect and tolerance for those who affirm traditional marriage.”

The bill also has the support of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, the National Organization for Marriage, Heritage Action, Family Research Council, Focus on the Family, The Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention, and Concerned Women for America.

In June, the U.S. Supreme Court issued two decisions regarding same-sex marriage. In one of those, Windsor vs. United States, the Court struck down a part of the Defense of Marriage Act that defined marriage as between one man and one woman for the purposes of federal law. David Christensen, vice president of government affairs for FRC, argued that the Marriage and Religious Freedom Act is consistent with the Windsor decision.

“This bill affirms that a person’s religious belief in the importance of natural marriage should be treated with tolerance and respect by the federal government,” he said. “The Windsor Court’s ruling urges respect for federalism and the sovereignty of state decisions on marriage law, including laws that define marriage between a man and a woman. This bill merely states that the federal government cannot target or harm a person for their religious views in support of natural marriage.”

Praying for abortions…is it like asking God to ‘please bless this murder’?

I thought religion and politics don’t mix, so what’s the deal with Democrats praying for abortions?
How many times have we been told that there’s a separation of church and state? Liberals have been pushing city council meetings to do away with prayer to open the meetings.
If you know anything about liberal politicians, they are not against religion as long as they get to control and define it. Liberals have used black churches for decades to support their candidates. Black pastors will get in the pulpit and endorse specific candidates. Try that in a conservative church and the ACLU and Americans United for Separation of Church and State will run to the latest IRS office to have the church’s tax exempt status revoked.
How many remember President Obama asking God to bless the bloody abortion business that kills more blacks every year than black-on-black crime in America? “As long as we’ve got to fight to make sure women have access to quality, affordable health care, and as long as we’ve got to fight to protect a woman’s right to make her own choices about her own health, I want you to know that you’ve also got a president who’s going to be right there with you, fighting every step of the way. Thank you, Planned Parenthood. God bless you.” Asking God to bless the killing of pre-born babies by praying for abortions is blasphemous, sick, and evil.
Pro-life...or pro-death. Which side are you on?
Following the President’s example, Iowa Democrat gubernatorial candidates joined with abortion activists to pray for increased abortion access. Let’s be more accurate. They were praying to ask God to help them pass laws so women can kill their pre-born babies.
Here’s the prayer: “We give thanks, O Lord, for the doctors, both current and future, who provide quality abortion care. We pray for increased financial support for low-income women to access contraception, abortion and childcare.  Today, we pray for women in developing nations, that they may know the power of self-determination. May they have access to employment, education, birth control, and abortion. Today we pray for the families who have chosen. May they know the blessing of choice.”
During the entire prayer, State Senator Jack Hatch and Rep. Tyler Olson, both of whom are running for governor, kept their heads bowed and eyes closed, joining in the group prayer.
This is worse than sick. It is pure evil.
Any nation that calls on God to seek His favor to kill people created in His image are worse than pagans. We know what’s growing in a mother’s womb. We can see the images in 3D. As the Apostle Paul wrote, “they are without excuse” (Rom. 1:20).
Now let’s see how appalled the people of Iowa really are.

US judge says anti-gay views are like those of ‘leader of a criminal enterprise’ and are ‘crime against humanity’…

Judge Michael Posnor has ruled in Sexual Minorities Uganda v. Lively (2013) that Scott Lively, through his talks in Uganda in opposition to homosexual behavior, was in fact “aiding and abetting a crime against humanity.”

Lively, an evangelical pastor, was sued in a Massachusetts federal court by a foreign group called Sexual Minorities of Uganda (SMUG) based on provisions in the Alien Tort Statute (ATS). If this decision is upheld, every foreign group with a grievance will appeal to the ATS and inundate our courts with claims of injustice, and the First Amendment will not offer any protection.

Judge Posnor went on to write in his 79-page ruling that Lively’s anti-same-sex views can be compared “to that of an upper-level manager or leader of a criminal enterprise.” They are, according to Judge Posnor, “analogous to a terrorist designing and manufacturing a bomb in this country, which he then mails to Uganda with the intent that it explode there.”

So speaking out against behaviors that only recently in the United States have been deemed lawful is akin to genocide?

We’ve seen this type of leftist logic before, and it’s not surprising that it came from a judge who was supported for the bench by John Kerry and Ted Kennedy and appointed by Bill Clinton. Soon after Timothy McVeigh bombed the Alfred P. Murrah federal building in Oklahoma City in April of 1995, some on the left of the political spectrum blamed “anti-government rhetoric” for the assault. Supposedly “hateful” speech directed at politicians had incited a cadre of “right-wing” extremists to put words into explosive action.

A similar blame-game tactic was tried by then Sen. Tom Daschle (D-SD) after the loss of the Senate to the Republicans in the 2002 mid-term elections. He blamed “talk radio,” and compared American “fundamentalists” to Islamic extremists. He claimed that critical talk about certain politicians and their policies could lead to a hostile environment that could spur people to violent acts. Daschle offered no empirical evidence to back up his claim.

On the 15th anniversary of the Oklahoma City bombing, former President Clinton once again tried to make the connection between speech and domestic terrorism. The following is the reaction from a New York Post editorial:

“[Clinton drew] implicit parallels between bomber Timothy McVeigh and peaceful — if rambunctious — political dissent like the Tea Party movement. … Like we said: shameless.”

What about Judge Posnor’s claim that speaking out against homosexual behavior is akin to “aiding and abetting a crime against humanity”? Is there such a thing in the world today? We kill about 1.2 million pre-born babies in America each year, but this is not a crime against humanity.

[from Minutemen News]

NORM ‘n’ AL Note: The gentleman being accused in the story above is a church pastor. His opinion concerning same-sex relationships, therefore, comes from the Bible he has learned to rely on and preach from. Apparently the judge in this case has not yet learned to rely on the US Constitution or the Bill of Rights, which specifically allows freedom of religion and prohibits all interference from government.

San Antonio becoming the new ‘Mecca’ for Christians…

The San Antonio City Council is about to adopt an ordinance that could get any Christian arrested for preaching the Bible or sharing their faith.  They are looking at passing some nondiscrimination ordinances that would make it a crime to exhibit or express any form of bias that could offend someone.  The proposed ordinance says:

“No person shall be appointed to a position if the city council finds that such person has, prior to such proposed appointment, engaged in discrimination or demonstrated a bias, by word or deed, against any person, group or organization on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, veteran status, age, or disability.”

Anyone found guilty of violating the new ordinance would be given a lifetime ban from being able to hold a city job, being involved with city government or even doing business with the city.

In other words, if a Christian works for the city as a garbage collector or street repair and they tell someone that the Bible says homosexuality is a sin, they could lose their job for expressing their bias.  Or, if you contracted with the city to provide a service, say computer maintenance or repair and you quoted what the Bible says about homosexuality, you could lose your contract with the city.

Any pastor who stands in the pulpit and reads from Leviticus 18, 20 or Romans 1, could be found guilty of violating the nondiscriminatory ordinance and face the consequences.  In fact, the ordinance would make it impossible for any good conservative Bible believing person, minister, church leader or lay person, to work for the city or run for any city office including the city council.

Clearly the ordinance violates the First Amendment rights of freedom of speech and religion.  Opponents of the ordinance also point out that it violates Article VI, paragraph 3 of the US Constitution that states:

“No religious Test shall ever be required as a Qualification to any Office or public Trust under the United States.”

They also claim that the nondiscriminatory ordinance violates the Texas Constitution and Texas Religious Freedom Act.  Charles Flowers, Pastor of Faith Outreach International commented, saying:

“The ordinance … says that if you have at any point demonstrate[d] a bias – without defining what a bias is or who will determine whether or not one has been exercised – that you cannot get a city contract.  Neither can any of your subcontractors [who have demonstrated a bias] sign on to the contract.”

Joe Conger of KHOU TV in Houston commented:

“Ever have a Paula Deen moment – make an off-color joke or hold a religious belief?  [Pastor Steve] Branson [of Village Parkway Baptist Church] says keep it to yourself if you’re involved with San Antonio city government. Proposed changes to the anti-discrimination ordinance could get you fired.”

Seems to me that the people of San Antonio need to seriously consider who has been elected or appointed to the city council.  If the council approves the ordinance, the citizens of San Antonio should launch recalls against all who voted for it.  Conservatives and Christians need to start standing up for their rights and for their state and nation and stop allowing left-wing agenda oriented liberals from taking control.

Obama is funding radical Islam through Egypt…

It was Albert Einstein who said “Weakness of attitude becomes weakness of character.”

I would switch that idea around, and say that weakness of character begets weakness of attitude. Without solid character, one does not have the correct attitude to lead. In order to be a leader of men, one must have a firm grip on the reality in which we live. One must understand when it is time to act, when it is time to withdraw, and when it is time to stand still. When one does not posses firm character, major judgment calls can become difficult, and be made irresponsibly.

I’ll be forthright and say it: Obama does not possess firm character. That is why, over the course of his administration, we have seen him make so many poor decisions. He has continuously made choices that benefit only him and his Party. Those choices have done massive damage to the American economy, to our foreign policy, and to the American people at large.

One particular choice made by Obama about which I was particularly leery was his decision to continue sending billions of dollars in aid to Egypt following the election of Mohammed Morsi. Morsi is a member of the Muslim Brotherhood—a group of radical Islamists. There were reports that some of his opponents were being executed following his election, and reports of extreme Christian persecution. In addition, Morsi has swiftly consolidated power, taking it from the judicial system and giving to himself.

Just as a reference, Morsi is the man who reportedly said this: “They [non-Muslims] need to know that conquest is coming, that Egypt will be Islamic, and they must pay jizya or emigrate.”

And this: “The Koran is our Constitution, the prophet is our leader, jihad is our path, and death in the name of Allah is our goal.”

Even if these quotes are exaggerated or fabricated entirely (I don’t think they are), the fact still remains that he was a very involved member of the Muslim Brotherhood—a group of radical Islamists.

Once Morsi was elected, and began becoming despotic, we should have cut off all aid to Egypt. However, that was not the case. It is only now—because of the popular and military uprising—that Obama is considering cutting off aid.

It is US law that aid must be cut off when a coup takes place; however, we have been providing cash to Egypt for decades, regardless of the circumstances. So, at the risk of sounding like a crazy conspiracy theorist, I ask the question: Why?

Why cut off aid now, rather than before? Why continue to provide a radical Islamist leader with US money? Why not support this uprising, like he supported the last one that brought Morsi to power?

Barack Obama is not—I repeat—not a Muslim. That does not mean, however, that he does not support radical Islam. Obama is a secular humanist, pretending to be a Christian. At best, he’s an agnostic. It is important to know where he stands in regard to Islam, and his own spirituality—or lack thereof—because it informs his decisions politically.

All of the questions I asked need to be answered. But more than that, without answering a single question, Obama is demonstrating an extraordinary weakness of judgment. This weakness of judgment shows a weakness of character.

Were I to read Obama’s mind, I might see two things: fear and opportunity. Obama may be afraid of radical Islam in Egypt. He might be so afraid, that he is willing to back the Muslim Brotherhood over a more secular government because he fears retaliation if he does not.

The other option is opportunity. He may realize that by first backing Morsi, then turning around and backing a revolution against him, he makes himself appear schizophrenic. It makes him look like he does not know what he is doing in regard to foreign policy.

Regardless of what is really going on, Obama has shown a severe weakness of character. Either option is bad for his image in one way or another. All he can do now is play catch-up, which is the game of characterless men.

Memo to those in our military: ‘Stand tall and proclaim your faith loudly and proudly.’

Stand tall, proclaim your faith...
When NBA basketball player Jason Collins recently announced to the world that he’s sexually attracted to other men, Michelle Obama tweeted “So proud of you, Jason Collins! This is a huge step forward for our country. We’ve got your back!” Jason even got a personal call from the president.

But evan as the Obama administration is vusy validating lifestyle choices and values that fly in the face of Christian sexual morality, this president is just as busy undermining the free exercise of the very Christian faith that dares to acknowledge morality even exists.

In a statement released in early May, President Obama’s Pentagon threatened military personal with “Religious proselytization is not permitted within the Department of Defense…court martials and nonjudicial punishments are decided on a case-by-case basis.”

Although the Pentagon has walked back its new anti-Christian “proselytizing” policy within the realm of public relations (a policy drafted with help from foul-mouthed atheist and anti-Christian bigot Mikey Weinstein), the DOD has yet to offer evidence that it intends to walk it back within the realm of application.

Webster’s defines “proselytization” as an attempt “to recruit or convert especially to a new faith, institution, or cause.” Sounds an awful lot like the Pentagon is threatening to court-martial any service member who obeys Christ’s central command to “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation.” (Mark 16:15)

Hard to read it any other way.

And so, to any member of the armed services who is harassed, demeaned, reprimanded or charged by this Obama Pentagon with obeying Jesus — with endeavoring to “recruit or convert” others to His exclusive saving grace — we at Liberty Counsel are delighted to say, “We’ve got your back!” Pro bono. Free of charge.

How are we able to do this? Through the generous financial and prayer support of more than 1.2 million Liberty Counsel donors and supporters. So please, get this information to every member of the armed forces you know. If you or they are being persecuted in any way, at any time, for sharing the love of Jesus Christ, let us know. Call us right away at 1-800-671-1776 or email us at liberty@lc.org.

“Making it a crime to share your faith is outrageous and morally unconscionable,” said Mat Staver, founder and chairman of Liberty Counsel.  “There has never been an administration more committed to its secularist philosophy at the expense of religious liberty. Liberty Counsel will do whatever is necessary to defend the religious liberty of our men and women who defend our liberties in the armed services,” promised Staver.

You’re trained to fight. So are we. You risk your lives to defend us every day. Let us risk our time and money to defend you. It’s the least we can do. We’d count it a high honor.

I’ve got news for Barack Obama. In America, serving God and serving country are not mutually exclusive. They never have been. In fact, until this president came along, the two went hand in hand.

In his farewell address, George Washington underscored the critical role religion and morality play to our nation’s survival. He warned of people like Barack Obama and Mikey Weinstein. “Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, Religion and Morality are indispensable supports,” he said.

“In vain would a man claim the tribute of Patriotism, who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness, these firmest props of the duties of Men and Citizens…reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religions principle.”

It seems the central goal of the current president and his Pentagon is to do exactly that — to subvert religion and morality wherever they find it. George Washington called that vain and unpatriotic. A majority of Americans would undoubtedly agree.

Mark Twain once wrote, “The secret of success is making your vocation your vacation.” His sage advice seems a slight variation of Ecclesiastes 9:10, which says “Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with all your might…” In short, if you want to find happiness, find what God created you to do and do it well. Do what you love and you will love what you do.

I love working for Liberty Counsel. I’m incredibly blessed to be part of one of the fastest-growing civil rights organizations in our country.

Every brave serviceman or woman I’ve ever known loves serving this great nation. Every Christian I’ve ever known loves serving the one Holy and Sovereign Creator of the universe — King Jesus.

If Mr. Obama or any other anti-Christian radicals think the American people are going to just lie down and allow them to rip God from country, they have another think coming.

I’m always proud of what we do at Liberty Counsel, and having served 12 years in the US military, I’m especially proud right now. It can’t be easy, laboring under an incompetent commander in chief who, over and over again, has displayed open hostility toward Washington’s “indispensable pillars” of religion and morality. It can’t be easy to serve under a president who constantly attacks your faith and freedom.

“It is beyond ironic that this administration chose to attack the religious liberties of the men and women who are charged with defending our nation’s freedom across the country and around the world,” Staver said. “The military has a unique relationship with chaplains in order to meet the spiritual needs of our soldiers. To threaten court-martial for anyone who shares his or her faith is reprehensible and un-American. This absurd policy will undermine the military and destroy morale. It must be rescinded immediately, and those responsible for instituting it should be disciplined.”

But until then, and once again, to those in the military: Don’t forget; stand tall and proclaim your faith loudly and proudly. If Obama tries to muzzle you, don’t sweat it. Liberty Counsel has your back.

[by Matt Barber, an attorney and VP with Liberty Counsel Action who specializes in constitutional law. This article appeared in WND’s WhistleBlower magazine, June 2013 issue.]

NORM ‘n’ AL NOTE: WhistleBlower magazine is probably the only publication in the entire country which is never afraid to tell you the truth. It calls itself  “credible, independent, and fearless,” and it reads just like that. We recommend you visit WND.com and get yourself a subscription. If you want to trust media again to tell you the truth, this is the place to start.
