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?

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.
