Amendment Defining Marriage

support_traditional_marriage

The Supreme Court is hearing arguments challenging Proposition 8, a constitutional amendment in California defining marriage as a union between one man and one woman.  Use this link to sign the petition in support of traditional marriage: http://bit.ly/XER0ge

CNN states: “The stakes, though, are decidedly clearer. In the case argued Tuesday and another to be heard on Wednesday, the nine justices could fundamentally alter how American law treats marriage.”

The problem most Americans have with challenging California’s ban on same-sex marriage (and same sex unions) by going to the Supreme Court is that a small group of people are trying to force their lifestyle on the majority who voted against it.  United States of America is a nation that (supposedly) is ruled by law.  Therefore, when the people of California (and in other states) voted down same sex marriage/unions, the people’s vote should stand.  Keep in mind that, before an election, an item must gather enough signatures on a petition to be put on the ballot; the outcome of the election sets the law.

Proponents of same sex marriage/unions used everything within their rights (along with violence) to get out their message to people and to motivate their supporters to vote.  When the decision was made on proposition 8, the topic should have been over and done with, but supporters of same sex marriage/unions won’t take “no” for an answer.  They believe their lifestyle should be recognized legally by the state in spite of election results.

The problem with taking California’s proposition 8 ban on same sex marriage/unions to the Supreme Court is that, if the Justices vote against California, the federal government would be negating a state’s authority on marriage.  And that is exactly the problem Justice Kennedy has with making a ruling on this matter; believing the federal government should not be intruding on a state’s authority to regulate marriage.

To the extent the swing justice [Justice Kennedy] is wary of the political implications of striking down all states’ marriage laws, then he might not want a ruling that would set the logical precedent for such a move.  …Cato Institute

It was noted in a letter from ACLJ (American Center for Law and Justice) several years ago that legitimizing same sex marriage/unions would be no different than legalizing relationships between first cousins, brothers and sisters, fathers and daughters, mothers and sons, and polygamy.

Is the question really about procreation, equal rights, or REDEFINING MARRIAGE? Redefining Marriage is the problem most Conservatives have about courts giving same sex the right to marry and raise children.  The concern with same sex marriage/unions is that children will become confused about the role of men and women and relationships when the people they learn from are confused about these roles.  This seems to be a legitimate concern, which was discussed to a small degree in the CNN video, but it is misrepresented as a procreation issue and not a role model for what it means to be a man and what it means to be a women.

Teach Patriotism

Please Teach Patriotism To Your Youth

This is what America is all about. Independence from England to stand on our own feet. It is Freedom to be what we want to be by establishing the type of government that we want. This video shows you what I see and what I feel when I think of our Founding Fathers and what they and those who fought in the revolution to give us the freedom we have today. I hope you see what I see and feel what I feel when you watch the following videos.

Our Children are Taught The Founding Fathers Did Not Believe In God.What Do You Think?

One Nation Under God


People come to this country because they want to become part of the American way of life, and to take advantage of opportunities that are available to them. It is because of these people that America is the melting pot of so many cultures, and part of what makes us a unique nation.

Nevertheless, it seems some people move to the United States and then feel offended by the very phrase that makes America good. The phrase which Americans treasure is “In God We Trust”, another phrase is “One Nation Under God”. It makes us wonder why people move here if they do not want to support the God that most Americans stand behind.  

The scriptures tell us that those who believe in God will be blessed. This is why Americans feel they are a blessed nation. Now there is an active movement (and unfortunately, gaining momentum) to remove mentioning God from the foundation upon which this country was founded, the fabric that envelops most Americans values, and the enlightenment from which formed the Constitution.

It is said by many that people who do not support democracy as founded, need to find somewhere else to live. It is true that people who do not like some things about our country should go through the proper channels and try to change things. That is the right way to seek change. The wrong way is to try to force people to accept a point of view that goes against their moral fiber and beliefs.

However, foreigners are not the force behind removing God from court houses and our money. This drive is coming from the UNGODLY known as Ungodly Americans. They believe that God is a “fantasy” and “stupid” beliefs and traditions (that is their words, not mine).

Most Americans support going through the normal process to facilitate change, but they do not support removing God from the foundation upon which this country was formed. God is the main reason our “Founding Fathers” came to this land, and so removing the mentioning of God from symbols of this country is another thing all together. It is this movement that does not have the support of most Americans.

Please take our poll and tell us how you view this situation.


I’m Ticked Off-Yahoo Personals

christ081

My brother posted a profile on Yahoo Personals that was rejected. They said he used a word that was objectionable (the word was possibly GOD) and that his picture was rejected too. That picture is of Christ and the one in this article. Do you think this picture is objectionable to have in your profile of pictures? Do you think it should have been rejected?

Welcome In The New Year With Gratitude

fireworks_bursting_in_air_xtsl

Can you believe it’s 2009?  Does it seem as strange to you as it does to me?  It probably doesn’t seem that odd to the youth, it’s just a new year to them.  To the old timers like a few of us, it seems really strange. I remember, as a child, thinking about what it would be like to live in the 2000’s; now it’s 2009 and soon it will be 2010. 

Do you remember the funny things we thought would exist in the 2000’s?  Some of those things have come to pass and some are still left to the future (like cars that drive on air and eventually in the sky). We used to watch cartoons that depicted a future to be like the Jetsons. 

We never could have dreamed of what computers would be doing today, or that they would be as small as they are now. Can you imagine living life now without the technology we have today?  There would be no Blackberries, iPods, cell phones with a camera and the Internet, no Internet for that matter, and no watching things on the other side of the world in real time. 

I love the world we live in today. Of course there are some things that are not so great: like pornography, teen sex, the number of  children being born to teens and raised without fathers in the home, and all the perversions we see now.  However, so much good is also going on that we may not recognize because all we can see is the bad going on around us.

We really do live in extraordinary times! I hope you will take the time to notice those things you should be grateful for and excited about experiencing this life.  For instance, the Internet has brought me many wonderful blessings. It has connected my husband to his past through genealogy. It has connected me to our children who live all over this nation. The Internet has connected me to you (you who are reading this article), no matter where you live in the world; that’s been a huge blessing for me. 

These times bring us great joy and satisfaction. Religions have learned to use the Internet and technology to make us more spiritual as well. Those who are searching for more meaning in their life can find it by wisely using the Internet, and those who have been lost have been found also. 

I love these times we live in right now, and I love how my life is blessed because of it. I hope you will take the time to consider how your life is blessed by living in these times too. I suspect you will be telling those you love how much you appreciate what they do for you to make your life more meaningful and complete. I also hope you read my article in this link http://blfconsulting.com/wordpress/2009/01/02/new-year-resolutions/about making resolutions, and http://hubpages.com/author/BLFConsulting/hot about living your life with more meaning and purpose.

 Let us make this new year a great one by appreciating our blessings and putting things into better perspective. 

Israel Attacks Palestine

armagiddon

Is Israel’s attack on Palestine bringing closer the great battle of Armageddon? 

If we understand the scriptures correctly, Armageddon is supposed to start in Jerusalem or the middle east as a campaign or one event that ushers in Christ’s second coming. 

Wikipedia describes Armageddon below:

“ArmageddonΑρμαγεδων; [armagedôn] also spelled Har-Magedon, or, in some modern English translations; the Mount of Megiddo), is the site of the final battle between God and Satan (whose name means ‘adversary’), also known as the Devil.  Satan will operate through the person known as the Antichrist or the beast, written about in the Book of Revelation in the New Testament. More generally, it can also refer to an apocalyptic catastrophe.

The word Armageddon in Scripture is known only from a single verse in the Greek New Testament, where it is said to be Hebrew, and is thought to represent the Hebrew words Har Megido (הר מגידו), meaning “Mountain of Megiddo”. Megiddo was the location of many decisive battles in ancient times (see Battle of Megiddo).”

If we are on the verge of Christ’s second coming, what does it mean to us personally and as a nation? Of course many people have their own opinion about what this event might mean, and many people are thinking about this possibility right now.

This brings us to thoughts about our own righteousness or our own vulnerability to events that are to take place in the last days. Those who are faithful are told to not fear, for the Lord will be with them. Others, who are not living by the Lord’s commandments may want to reconsider their lives and try to make changes that are more pleasing to God. However, those who call themselves athiests and do not believe in God,  think belief in Armageddon and the second coming of the Lord is nonsense.

Regardless of your personal beliefs, it does cause this country great concern about the events taking place in the middle east right now; particularly in Israel and Palestine. The United States supports Israel and other nations support Palestine. This support can cause unrest around the globe and may even cause World Wars that involve the United States and perhaps your nation. 

That means we not only have concerns about our own righteousness but also have concerns about how another World War will affect every citizen in every nation. And that concern affects our families and their own sense of security and safety. 

This concept is why I want to talk with you about shoring up your families spiritually, mentally, and economically the best you can to protect them the best you can during the days ahead and whatever the events going on in Israel and Palestine might bring.

We need to spend more time with our families and answer their questions and concerns.

We need to let our family members know that they are loved, that we will protect them the best we can, and that they need to have faith in the future.

If we have taught them about the Lord, we can affirm their faith in the Lord and remind them that He will protect them when they are obedient to His commandments.

If we believe that our lives have been out of sync with God and we have neglected to teach our families about prayer and faith, now would be a good time to remedy that situation.

On the other hand, if you believe all this is nonsense, that’s fine. However, it would still be wise to help your family members have faith and trust in the future.

Let us take the time to consider our lives and the choices we make each day, that we will learn from our mistakes and try to improve the quality of life that gives value to our existance is my prayer for you. I ask this in the name of the Lord, Jesus Christ, amen.
