Bill Lockwood: Christianity in the Cross-hairs

by Bill Lockwood

The Democrats have Christianity in their cross-hairs. It must be eliminated. According to presidential candidate Joe Biden, his top priority in the Oval Office, should he be elected, will be to pass and enforce the “Equality Act”—a proposed bill that normalizes deviant sexual behavior while penalizing biblical Christianity.

Recently, Joe Biden honored the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) for moving “the moral arc in this nation towards justice.” The HRC is a prominent homosexual advocacy group. He was referring to the so-called Equality Act, which passed the House Judiciary Committee in May. The Equality Act would effectively gut the Religious Freedom Restoration Act of 1993 which has protected Americans with a Christian conscience from interference from Big Brother Government. As Bill Donohue, president and CEO of the Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights, wrote in May:

The Equality Act is the most comprehensive assault on religious liberty, the right to life, and privacy ever packaged into one bill in the history of the United States. …this act is based on the idea that sexually challenged men and women—those who think they can transition to the other sex—should be treated as if hey were members of a minority race.

In short, the Equality Act takes “political correctness” and puts a statist government’s teeth into it. Let’s see the background.

Religious Freedom Restoration Act

The RFRA began as a reaction following a 1990 Supreme Court decision (Employment Division v. Smith) which concerned Christians that religious liberty might be threatened. In 1993 none other than Chuck Schumer (D-NY) introduced the RFRA, a bill which was intended to keep federal laws from burdening a person’s religious convictions. The bill passed and was signed into law by Bill Clinton.

It is important to note that this resulted from a huge national movement of Christians to protect their First Amendment God-given rights. The Left, however, has never appreciated it, to say the least. For example, in 2014, the RFRA was used as a basis to challenge the ObamaCare mandate that required all for-profit companies to cover abortion-inducing drugs in their health-care plans. Hobby Lobby successfully challenged in Court Obama’s iron-fisted unconstitutional law.

The Left, therefore, has not only despised Christianity itself, but the basic protections that our Constitution has guaranteed them, including the First Amendment. After the 1993 RFRA, the war began to rage openly.

In 1997 the Supreme Court “ruled” that the RFRA could not apply to the states—only the federal government. This left the states open to irreligious assaults. The Christian communities around the country then began to pass at state levels their own religious freedom bills. Enough!, says the Left. We will eradicate Christian liberty once and for all—hence, the Equality Act.

The Equality Act

This historic proposal will take the 1964 Civil Rights Act and apply it to the Homosexual Network operating in the United States. It will therefore gut the RFRA by granting homosexuals and other deviant sexual behaviors preferential treatment in hiring; houses of worship would be turned into places of “public accommodations” where the Equality Act would rule; beginning in kindergarten children will be indoctrinated with the LGBTQ agenda; freedom of speech by Bible-oriented Christians would be endangered by law; privacy rights in bathrooms and gym locker rooms would be a thing of the past as would parental rights to teach children the sin of homosexuality. In short, liberty would be lost.

Bill Donohue adds,

If anyone thinks this is an exaggeration, check out what has happened to religious liberty in New Jersey and Ohio where Catholic hospitals have been targeted. Unless they agree to perform a hysterectomy on a woman who claims to be a man, they can be sued. The ACLU has been suing Catholic hospitals all over the nation trying to force them to adopt its anti-Catholic agenda. While it typically loses, this legislation will reverse that record.

In short, the Equality Act could put people out of work for their beliefs, according to the Heritage Foundation. Those who believe the Bible will be disallowed by law from expressing those beliefs in public. The biblical definition of marriage will be relegated to your closet. Your family will have been invaded by the federal mandates that favor homosexuality as a “protected class.”

What is occurring in Great Britain will be occurring here as well. There, the Muslim community is seeking protection from criticism by having Islam classified as a “race” via the United Nations. Those who criticize the teachings of Mohammed become “racists” with all that that word carries. No open dialogue, no open thought—just conformity. So here. No dialogue. No debate. No scientific proof—just a statist government enforcing its will.

Your iniquities have separated between you and your God, your sins have hid his face from you …therefore justice is far from us, neither does righteousness overtake us; we look for light, but behold, darkness; for brightness, but we walk in obscurity. – Isaiah 59:1,9

Jesse Lee Peterson: END THE HOLOCAUST ON THE UNBORN

Jesse Lee Peterson blasts ‘hissy fit’ of false black leaders, liberal women

by Jesse Lee Peterson

The 46-year holocaust targeting unborn children has taken a toll of over 60 million babies’ lives. Untold numbers of distraught fathers and mothers are tortured by the grief and trauma at their children’s violent death. Some never recover from the guilt and shame for taking part in this horror, having been lied to by radical organizations like Planned Parenthood.

These crimes against humanity are endorsed by the Democratic Party, and abetted by RINO Republicans who pay lip service but cower to political correctness. Cowardly men stand aside as radical feminists promote death under the pretense that they care about “women’s health,” the “woman’s body” and the “woman’s choice.” In reality, these selfish, evil people only care about money, convenience, and their own egotistical ideology of hate. Liberals hate white men and they hate children. While they pretend to care about “people of color” and women, they hate them as well, exploiting their weakness for political gain.

Barack Obama was the first feminist president, and he loved abortion. He voted multiple times as a U.S. Senator to allow a child born alive after a botched abortion to die on the medical table. The first thing he did as president was sign an executive order to fund abortions overseas. His socialist “Obamacare” also reportedly funded abortions, according to the Government Accountability Office.

(Obama was also the most anti-black president we’ve ever had, whose policies and statements subsidized and encouraged black self-destruction. He exacerbated the violence in the ghettos with increased black-on-black murders by undermining law enforcement and stoking anti-police hatred. He validated the radical hate group Black Lives Matter – a group that’s brought more death, destruction and misery to the black community than the KKK. Obama brought these radicals to the White House, along with the evil, exploitative Al Sharpton. Barack Obama hates black Americans, but in their darkness most blacks supported him to their own destruction.)

Black women and children suffer from an utter lack of men in their so-called homes and communities. According to CDC numbers analyzed by the Center for Immigration studies, 77 percent of native-born black mothers had children out of wedlock in 2015. Blacks, most of whom pretend to be Christians, have the highest percentage of unwed births. The fathers are weak and absent, the mothers angry and violent, and the children – those who survive the womb – are out of control.

In their spiritual blindness, blacks also lead the way in abortions. According to the radical pro-abortion Guttmacher Institute, blacks, who were 14 percent of the population, made up 28 percent of abortions nationwide in 2014. Their share of total abortions was twice their share of the population. It’s said that blacks abort more than a third of their pregnancies – and well over half of pregnancies in cities like New York in recent years. Since 1973’s Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision, it’s estimated that more than 20 million black babies have been killed by abortion.

Order Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson’s book, “The Antidote: Healing America from the Poison of Hate, Blame, and Victimhood.”

Democrats thrive on the immorality and irresponsibility of the people, and especially black people. They love for people to suffer from “poverty” and violence, and they love to stoke black anger, women’s anger, Hispanic anger. They push the attack on white men, and rejoice when young men lash out and commit mass shootings. Democrats are about control, but they cannot control a moral people. Democrats have to make people angry and immoral in order to assume power over them. So they fight for the “right” to destroy lives and present slavery to sin as “freedom” to “choose.”

But thank God for the South, and “Sweet Home Alabama”! This past week Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey signed into law a bill that would make murder of the unborn a felony. Thankfully, Alabama Republicans made no exceptions to allow killing of children conceived in rape or incest, but only to save the life of the mother.

It’s going to take logical men, especially white men, standing up with courage to make logical decisions to finally end this mass murder. Stand up to the wicked wolves in sheep’s clothing who call themselves “pro-choice,” and stop stepping aside as though this is only a “women’s issue.” Men should lead this fight, not shrink back and allow women to take over – which destroyed the black community.

False black leaders and liberal women are having a hissy fit about the Alabama law. Other states are passing laws attacking the rampant scourge of abortion. The anti-American organization ACLU is preparing a court battle against the law, likely to reach the Supreme Court.

The only way to win this spiritual battle is for men to wake up, overcome fear and anger, return to God and become perfect. Men should overcome their weakness toward women by forgiving their mothers, returning to their fathers, and thereby coming alive spiritually. Pray without ceasing, know thyself and repent. Then you can have the right relationship with women, stop having sex outside marriage, and lead with authority as Christ leads you. If men set the example, and speak out against evil, we can end the holocaust on the unborn.
