For several years now, homosexuals have made news by suing or filing discrimination complaints against bakers, florists, photographers, bed & breakfasts, newspapers, farm owners and others who chose to maintain their religious freedom to not endorse homosexual marriage by providing services in support of a same-sex wedding. The quest by homosexuals to have their lifestyle mainstreamed and accepted, whether voluntarily or forced, is having some success. But this success is only coming due to leftists judges and ‘human rights’ commissions that deem First Amendment religious objections to homosexual marriage to be discrimination. The mythical constitutional protection against being offended is taking precedence over the First Amendment freedom of religion.
But while some business owners have stuck to their religious principles, which has cost some dearly, others in the Christian community have softened their stance on homosexual marriage. Many church denominations have stated their position on homosexuality to be that it is not sinful and therefore, neither is homosexual marriage. These [...] → Keep reading
It seems the day has arrived when pastors in the United States have the content of their sermons targeted by homosexuals. City attorneys in Houston have subpoenaed sermons given by local pastors who are in opposition to an equal rights ordinance that was passed earlier this year.
Religion News Service – Houston has subpoenaed sermons given by local pastors who oppose an equal rights ordinance, according to news reports Tuesday (Oct. 14).
Houston Mayor Annise Parker, who drew headlines for becoming the first openly lesbian mayor of a major American city, led support for the ordinance. The measure bans discrimination among businesses that serve the public, private employers, in housing and in city employment and city contracting.
Under the ordinance, transgender people barred access to a restroom would be able to file a discrimination complaint, one of the hotly contested parts of the ordinance.
The ordinance, which exempted religious institutions, was passed in June, though its implementation has been delayed [...] → Keep reading
The similarities between homeowners associations (HOAs) and the government are so close that it wouldn’t be a stretch to classify an HOA as a tiny government. Governments have the power to tax and HOAs have the power to collect dues and special assessments. Failure to pay taxes will get you jail time and fines; failure to pay dues and assessments will get you attorney’s fees, a lien on your property or even seizure of your home. Governments have the power to tell you what you can and can’t do, including how much water your toilet can flush. HOAs also have the power to tell you what you can and can’t do with your property. Some associations have very restrictive covenants that require approval from a committee before you can even plant something on your property or remove a dead bush.
Over the last several years there have been countless stories of HOAs harassing homeowners, even filing lawsuits in some cases, [...] → Keep reading
Late last month, Colleen Hufford was at work at Vaughan Food Distribution in Moore, Oklahoma when Jah’Keem Yisrael (Alton Nolen) rushed into the building, stabbed her multiple times, then cut off her head. He had just been fired for getting into arguments with coworkers about stoning women. He is said to have gone home to retrieve his knife, then returned to the business where he beheaded Hufford and began stabbing another woman before he was shot by the COO of Vaughan Foods, Mark Vaughan. Vaughan is also an Oklahoma County reserve sheriff’s deputy.
Witnesses to the beheading said Yisrael was shouting Islamic phrases during the attack. He had recently converted to Islam while in prison and was attending the Islamic Society of Greater Oklahoma City. This is the same mosque attended by Zacharias Moussaoui, who was to have been the 20th hijacker on 9/11. A former member of this mosque shared some chilling information about it with Fox’s Megyn [...] → Keep reading
With this week’s action, or rather the inaction, of the Supreme Court, homosexual marriage is now legal in Wisconsin, Utah, Indiana, Virginia and Oklahoma. By refusing to hear cases from these states the Justices have allowed lower court rulings overturning bans on homosexual marriage to stand.
After the Supreme Court’s inaction on Monday there were thirty states recognizing homosexual marriages. Yesterday, a ruling from the 9th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals added five more states to the list, and a pending decision in the 6th Circuit could get the number up to 39. Of these 39 states, only six have chosen through the democratic process to recognize homosexual marriages. All the rest have had it forced upon them by leftists in black robes.
With each judicial ruling that legitimizes gay marriage, these judges are telling state populations and legislatures that have passed ballot measures, laws and amendments that their democratic process doesn’t matter and their sovereignty as a state is [...] → Keep reading
The barbarity of Islam has been front and center in the news lately. The murder and beheadings of captive journalists, the savage massacres of Christians and threats against America all culminated late last week with the beheading of a woman in Moore, Oklahoma by a Muslim convert. The shock value of such actions is inescapable and leaves people wondering just what kind of person could inflict such horrible acts on another human being. What’s lost on people is that such horror has been going on all over the world for decades, with Americans being at the forefront of the butchery. And your tax dollars are paying for a lot of it.
If you haven’t already guessed, I’m referring to abortion. Since abortion became legal in 1973 there have been more than 57 million abortions in the United States and more than 1.35 billion worldwide. One of the leading providers of abortion in America is Planned Parenthood. Planned Parenthood provides around [...] → Keep reading
Earlier this year the Detroit Water and Sewage Department (DWSD) began shutting off the water to thousands of residents who wouldn’t pay their bills in an effort to get more people to pay their bills or get on a payment plan. This caused a firestorm of protest from liberals, especially the freeloaders in Detroit who refused to pay their bills. As of March there were around 165,000 delinquent accounts with a combined $175 million in unpaid water bills. Activist groups filed a report with the United Nations(!), requesting they intervene on behalf of the bankrupt city’s freeloaders. The report was filed with the U.N.’s Special Rapporteur on the Human Right to Safe Drinking Water and Sanitation. Who knew the U.N. even had such a person? The activists claimed the DWSD action was meant to “sweeten the pot for a private investor” to take over the city’s water and sewer system as part of Detroit’s bankruptcy proceedings.
Earlier today, U.S. Bankruptcy [...] → Keep reading
The beheading of a woman last week in Moore, Oklahoma by a Muslim could have been much, much worse were it not for chief operating officer Mark Vaughan. When Alton Nolen beheaded one woman and began stabbing another, the chief operating officer of the business, Mark Vaughan, retrieved his weapon and shot Nolen to end the attack. Vaughan is also an Oklahoma County reserve sheriff’s deputy. Law enforcement officials have said there is no doubt that Vaughan’s quick action saved the lives of several other employees.
This is a prime example of a violent attack at a business that was ended by someone with a firearm. What if the policy of this business had been that firearms are not allowed on the premises? How many more employees would have been killed before police officers arrived and entered the business to confront Nolen?
Here in Oklahoma we have thousands of people with concealed carry permits. In this day and age [...] → Keep reading
Yesterday afternoon a Muslim convert killed a woman with a knife, beheaded her and attacked another woman with the knife before being shot by an Oklahoma County reserve deputy.
KFOR – MOORE, Okla. – Officials with the Moore Police Department say the FBI is now involved in the investigation related to a brutal attack of workers at a food distribution plant.
Sgt. Jeremy Lewis says the alleged suspect, 30-year-old Alton Nolen had just been fired when he drove to the front of the business, hit a vehicle and walked inside.
He walked into the front office area where he met 54-year-old Colleen Hufford and began attacking her with a knife.
Sgt. Lewis confirms the type of knife used in the attack is the same kind used at the plant.
Lewis confirms that Hufford was stabbed several times and that Nolen “severed her head.”
At that point, Lewis claims Nolen met 43-year-old Traci Johnson and began attacking her with the [...] → Keep reading
It has been near impossible lately to read any news without seeing Islam mentioned. With so many Islamic terrorist groups spreading their evil, murdering Christians and other non-Islamists in the most horrific ways, more attention has been given to Islam and to the evil for which it stands. You might already be asking yourself, did he just say Islam is evil? Yes, I did.
Certainly there are many nonviolent Muslims in the world, and they may even be in the majority, but the fact remains that the core tenets of Islam are violence, death, murder, rape and pedophilia. That the majority (just guessing) of Muslims do not take part in this evil does not change the fact that Islam is pure evil. U.S. politicians on both sides of the aisle frequently dismiss the evil of Islam, stating that Islam is a religion of peace and that the ‘extremists’ have hijacked it in order to conduct their terrorist activities. They’ve got [...] → Keep reading
