Powerful New Ad Highlights Democrat's Abortion Extremism

A new pro-life ad by March For Life Action is airing in Pennsylvania and Ohio. It features only women and very effectively reveals the abortion extremism of the Democrat Party. See it for yourself:



In spite of the clear and indisputable science of life in the womb, many Americans still support killing children in the womb. However, a large majority of Americans don't support the radical pro-abortion extremism of the modern Democrat Party. Hillary Clinton supports the "right" to kill children at any stage of their life in the womb. The video below (which is changing the minds of many who view it) illustrates well just exactly what Hillary supports:



Democrats not only support this barbarism, they believe that you--no matter your position on the matter--should pay for such "procedures." "Procedure"--that's a nice word isn't it? In spite of their rabid support for these executions, when national elections are on the line, Democrats can't even bring themselves to utter the word "abortion." They would rather say things like "right to choose" or "family planning." In other words, they would rather say almost anything than to say what they really support. Such deception is standard operating procedure for the political party that once defended the "right" of Americans to own slaves.

Kudos to March For Life Action for helping to spread truth.

On Marriage and Gender, Where’s the FCA?

A wise pastor, whose name I’ve forgotten, once said, “If you want to know what to preach about, find out what sin with which your congregation is struggling.” Or, as I noted after the infamous Obergefell ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court that legally redefined the oldest institution in the history of humanity, pastors, as they prepare their sermons, should always be asking, “Where is the enemy at work in attempting to deceive my congregation?”

Likewise, any organization devoted to the works of Jesus Christ—or seeking to “impact the world for Jesus Christ”—should be well prepared to confront the popular lies that seek to undermine the eternal truths of our Creator. I’m no longer directly active with the Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA), and thus I’m not privy to what is happening at the local level of the FCA in my area. However, with the widespread efforts of athletic organizations across the U.S.—at the high school, collegiate, and professional level—in support of the homosexual agenda, I’m very disappointed not to hear national FCA leaders speak truth to a nation that desperately needs to hear it.

Whether same-sex “marriage,” the “right” for men to dress as women and use women’s bathrooms and locker rooms, and the like, everyone from the NFL to the NBA, NCAA, ACC, ESPN—and virtually any other three-to-four letter combinations that represent organizations devoted to making money off of athletics—has recently and enthusiastically embraced positions that are diametrically opposed to what Christianity teaches on these grave matters.

Of course, this deception is not limited to the world of sports. Virtually every facet of the entertainment industry has set itself in opposition to the Word of God when it comes to marriage, family, sex, and sexuality. And as virtually any sentient American knows, the lies of the homosexual agenda have been embraced by the highest components of the U.S. government and are cemented into the platform of the Democrat Party.

Christians who know the truth but choose to remain silent need to recall the words of Mordecai to his cousin Esther (paraphrased):

Do not think that if you remain silent in this matter you will escape. For if you remain silent at this time, relief and deliverance will arise from someone else. And who knows but that you have come to your influential position for such a time as this?

The North Carolina GOP hasn’t remained silent. After the NCAA’s recent ignorant and foolish decision to punish the state of North Carolina for its common sense legal response to the city of Charlotte’s perverse “bathroom bill,” NCGOP spokeswoman Kami Mueller declared,

This is so absurd it’s almost comical. I genuinely look forward to the NCAA merging all men’s and women’s teams together as singular, unified, unisex teams. Under the NCAA’s logic, colleges should make cheerleaders and football players share bathrooms, showers and hotel rooms. This decision is an assault to female athletes across the nation. If you are unwilling to have women’s bathrooms and locker rooms, how do you have a women’s team? 
I wish the NCAA was this concerned about the women who were raped at Baylor. Perhaps the NCAA should stop with their political peacocking — and instead focus their energies on making sure our nation’s collegiate athletes are safe, both on and off the field.

Franklin Graham let his influential voice be heard as well. After the Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) Council of Presidents voted to move sports championships out of North Carolina, highlighting the glaring hypocrisy of the ACC and NCAA, Rev. Graham wrote:

As a lifelong resident of North Carolina and current CEO and president of two organizations employing nearly 1,500 North Carolinians, I am saddened—even outraged—by the vote of the ACC Council of Presidents to move conference championships from our state in protest of legislation requiring people to use public bathrooms that correspond with their birth gender. 
While I recognize this legislation—and legislation like it in other states—is complicated by society’s continued blurring of the lines of gender and sexual identity, I also recognize the profound hypocrisy of the ACC, the NCAA and other companies and organizations who are making calculated business decisions disguised as moral outrage. 
For example, the football championship game your conference voted to move from Charlotte in December is called the “Dr. Pepper ACC Football Championship.” Dr. Pepper and its parent company, Cadbury Schweppes and Carlyle Group, proudly sell their products in countries where homosexuality is illegal. Will the ACC drop its title sponsor? And why isn’t the LGBT community demanding you sever ties with such a “bigoted” corporate sponsor? 
Currently, LGBT relationships are illegal in more than 70 countries—including 10 where homosexuality is punishable by death. Dr. Pepper is often bottled under contract by Coca-Cola bottlers—yet Coca-Cola conducts business in virtually every nation on earth, including nearly every country where homosexuality is currently criminalized. Can your conference continue to tolerate that?

However, there’s nothing like this from the FCA, nor from prominent members of the FCA (you know who you are) whose words would hold powerful sway over a nation that is obsessed with celebrity.

The “Statement of Faith” of the FCA is biblically sound and strongly evangelical in its tone. The opening part of the statement declares, “We believe the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative Word of God.” The statement later declares, “We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life.” The FCA Vision is “To see the world impacted for Jesus Christ through the influence of coaches and athletes.”

If one believes the Bible is the “Word of God,” then one must conclude that—as the Bible clearly reveals—a person cannot “live a godly life” while unrepentantly engaging in homosexual activity. Likewise, if one believes the Bible is the “Word of God,” one cannot accept that a human being who mutilates his body in order to live the perverse fantasy that he is the opposite gender is living “a godly life.”

To “impact the world for Jesus Christ” is to tell the truth in these matters. As I’ve noted before, one of the greatest acts of love a Christian can perform—especially in our culture today—is telling the world unpopular truths. Right now, homosexuality, same-sex “marriage,” and transgenderism are pretty popular. This is especially the case in the “Wide-Wide World of Sports.” The national leaders (official and unofficial) of the FCA should not need to take cues from Franklin Graham, the GOP, or anyone else, in how to battle the lies of the homosexual agenda.

Does Omar Mateen Fit in Hillary's "Basket of Deplorables?"

I wonder if Hillary has room in her "basket of deplorables" for radical Islamist Omar Mateen. In case you've forgotten, Mateen was the Allah-praising, ISIS-pledging Islamist who shot up a homosexual night-club in Orlando killing 49 Americans.


Also recall that Mateen was a registered Democrat who supported Hillary Clinton for U.S. President. Also recall that Mateen's father was recently spotted at a Hillary rally where he showed off his own elaborate personally made pro-Hillary sign:


The elder Mateen is a supporter of the Taliban who ran for president of Afghanistan in 2015. It makes one wonder how many other Islamists are "in the basket" for Hillary Clinton.

Whatever is the case, it seems lost on Hillary that a significant portion (perhaps even a sizable majority) of Trump's supporters are voting for him, not because they are strongly behind his candidacy, but simply because they find her much more "deplorable" than they do him.

Beware the Homosexual Enablers

This is what happens when a culture stops calling evil what it is. 

As Life Site News recently reported:
A homosexual elementary school teacher, who was "married" to another man, killed himself and his "husband" in an apparent murder-suicide after the two were allegedly caught having inappropriate contact with students, according to Dakota County court documents. 
Forty-year-old Aric Babbitt and 36-year-old Matthew Deyo were under investigation for regularly taking adolescent boys on overnight trips, specifically boys who identified as possibly gay, with parental approval, even though the men were openly homosexual.

According to court records, Babbitt assured parents that he was "mentoring" their children, and when questioned about inappropriate gifts he gave them, such as underwear and skimpy yoga shorts, Babbitt told the parents that they wouldn't understand because "It's a gay thing."
Babbitt's father, Dana Babbitt, was superintendent of the South St. Paul (MN) school district from 2003 to 2007. Aric Babbitt taught at Lincoln Center Elementary, a school in the South St. Paul district. According to the Duluth News Tribune, "Babbitt had been a teacher at the elementary school since 2002 and had taught grades 1, 2, 5 and 6. He was supposed to teach fourth grade this school year." 

After the death of his son and the other pederast, Dana Babbitt said, 
Our families want to express the sincere grief and sadness we are feeling for the innocent people affected by the actions of Aric Babbitt and Matthew Deyo. We are devastated by the pain and suffering they have caused, and we pray for the healing of those families involved.
The perverse "actions" by Babbitt and Deyo included taking nude pictures together with the (high school age) students, showing students pornography, giving them alcohol and marijuana, providing "massages" to students, taking them to gay pride events, buying porn subscriptions for them to post their own naked photos online, and telling them to communicate via social media without their parents' knowledge. Babbitt and Deyo also planted a hidden camera in their bathroom and encouraged visiting boys to masturbate there.

Given the length of his teaching career, there's no telling how many boys Babbitt molested, corrupted, or otherwise victimized. What's more, given the desire to push the acceptance of all things homosexual upon our culture, it seems very likely that Babbitt's school district was an enabler of his perversions. Any investigation of Babbitt and Mayo's "activities" must include a hard look at the role the South St. Paul school district played in Babbitt and Mayo's crimes.

This incident is not merely anecdotal. As Peter LaBarbera explains, "Pederasty --sex between men and boys-- has long been a part of male homosexuality. A new study by world renowned psychiatrist Dr. Paul McHugh and Johns Hopkins University scholar Lawrence Mayer finds that homosexuals are 'two to three times more likely to have experienced childhood sexual abuse.'" Government schools are fertile grounds for homosexual predators. This is especially the case given how this godless institution has embraced the homosexual agenda. Parents be warned.
