Interesting how the media doesn’t want to mention this, isn’t it? I guess it doesn’t fit their agenda.
Man Who Murdered Pro-Life Protester Gets Life in Prison… Media Silent
Posted by Jim Hoft on Thursday, April 22, 2010
The man who murdered pro-life advocate James Pouillon because he didn’t like his signs was sentenced to life in prison today.
For some strange reason the state-run media was mostly AWOL on this one?
The man who shot pro-life advocate James Pouillon because he was upset with the graphic abortion signs he used when protesting abortion outside a local high school has been sentenced to life in prison. Harlan Drake killed Pouillon and a local businessman in a separate killing after a family feud.
A Shiawassee County jury convicted Drake on two counts of first-degree murder in the September 2009 shootings.
Today, Shiawassee County Circuit Judge Gerald Lostracco sentenced Drake to the life sentence without parole and Drake said he was sorry to have caused so much pain for the victim of the families.
At the same time, Drake appeared frustrated in court, according to an AP report, and told the judge to “get on with this.”Read Full Post | Make a Comment ( 1 so far )
Well, here we go again – another reason why I’m BAFFLED that a Christian could have possibly voted for Obama. Now Obama is going to MAKE doctors perform abortions whether its against their religious beliefs (conscience) or not. Obama couldn’t care LESS about our faith and he proves it over and over again. Imagine what would happen if we forced PETA folks to kill animals for testing? How do you think that would fly? It wouldn’t!!! But the difference is that we would NEVER ask them to do that.
Obama is a socialist dictator and we are letting him get by with it. He is going to ruin this country even more than I originally thought!!
What’s also driving me nuts is that the mainstream media is complicit in trying to help him get these things done quietly and without a lot of fanfare. They know if more people heard about these things they’d be upset, therefore they just don’t mention them and let him quietly do his harm!!! I despise the MSM and their part in the ruining of this country!
‘Conscience’ rule on abortions may be overturned
The Obama administration wants to clarify a Bush policy that lets healthcare workers deny services because of moral beliefs.
By Noam N. Levey
February 27, 2009
Reporting from Washington — Taking another step into the abortion debate, the Obama administration today will move to rescind a controversial rule that allows healthcare workers to deny abortion counseling or other family planning services if doing so would violate their moral beliefs, according to administration officials.
The rollback of the so-called conscience rule comes just two months after the Bush administration announced it late last year in one of its final policy initiatives.
The new administration’s action seems certain to stoke ideological battles between supporters and opponents of abortion rights over the responsibilities of doctors, nurses and other medical workers to their patients.
Seven states, including California, Illinois and Connecticut, and two family-planning groups have filed lawsuits challenging the Bush rule. They argue that it sacrifices the health of patients to the religious beliefs of medical providers.
The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists has reported cases, such as that of a Virginia mother of two who became pregnant after she was denied emergency contraception. In Texas, according to the group, a rape victim had her prescription for emergency contraception rejected by a pharmacist.
Supporters of the rule say it protects doctors from being forced to prescribe treatments including birth control pills.
President Obama — a longtime supporter of abortion rights — has been expected to reverse a number of Bush-era policies restricting access to family planning services.
But the new president has also been sensitive to the explosiveness of the reproductive rights issue.
Last month without official ceremony, Obama overturned a controversial ban on U.S. funding for international aid groups that provide abortion services.
The move by the Department of Health and Human Services to throw out the conscience rule is being made equally quietly as most of Washington focuses on the president’s blockbuster budget plan.Read Full Post | Make a Comment ( 1 so far )
BRAVO!!! BRAVO!!!! Once again Doug Giles hits it out of the ballpark. I couldn’t agree more. As you may have seen in my earlier posts I could not fathom how a Christian could vote for Obama, and this article proves my point even more. Unless you throw Scripture out the window, a Christian cannot, in good conscience, vote for Obama.
Obama’s Evangelicals: The Liberals’ New Useful Idiots
by Doug GilesIn less than a week after Obama’s swearing in, our nuevo POTUS unfurled his radically liberal abortion and family plans together with his juicy pro-homosexual agenda.
Good job, all evangelicals who voted for Obama, as these aforementioned ditties-from a biblical perspective-are about as sanctified as the Antichrist French kissing a crack whore in Bret Michaels’ hot tub.
Yep, I wanna give a special shout out to all the “major” ministers who fawned and swooned over Barack and swayed their congregations to vote for him in spite of his anti-scriptural stances on life, marriage and sexuality.
Let’s take a look at Obama’s homosexual agenda for our nation:
My colleague and co-belligerent compadre right here on TownHall.com, Matt Barber, pointed out to me during an interview on my show last week that literally within minutes after President Obama took the oath of office Tuesday, the official White House webpage was updated-under the heading of “Civil Rights”-to detail Obama’s wholesale “support for the LGBT (homosexual activist) community.” His stated plans include the following:
• Defeating all state and federal constitutional efforts to defend the millennia-old definition of natural marriage;
• Repealing the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) signed by Bill Clinton-the only line of defense keeping all 50 states from being forced to recognize so-called “same-sex marriages” from extremely liberal states like Massachusetts and Connecticut;
• Repealing the military’s “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy;
• Passing constitutionally dubious and discriminatory “hate crimes” legislation, granting homosexuals and cross dressers special rights-denied other Americans-based on changeable sexual behaviors;
• Passing the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA) which would force business owners (religious and otherwise) to abandon traditional values relative to sexual morality under penalty of law; and,
• Creating intentionally motherless and fatherless homes and sexually confusing untold thousands of children by expanding “gay adoption.”
Barber went on to say, “While millions had hoped for a political ‘messiah,’ it’s rapidly becoming evident that, instead, we’ve stuck ourselves with an extreme leftist ideologue whose brand of ‘change we can believe in’ is, in reality, ‘change we never imagined.’
“The gravity of this situation cannot be overstated. Right out of the shoot, Obama has told the world that he is signing off, without exception, on every demand of the extremist homosexual and transsexual lobbies. The radical homosexual agenda and religious and free speech liberties cannot occupy the same space. It’s a zero-sum game. When 1 – 2 percent of the population is granted special rights based on deviant sexual proclivities and changeable sexual behaviors, to the detriment of everyone else, that’s called tyranny of the minority. People of faith and those of you with traditional values: hold on to your hats-it’s going to be a bumpy four years,” concluded Barber.
And that’s just the tip of the pink iceberg, folks.
If it’s change you wanted, “Christian,” it’s change you’re about to get, as in more unborn babies are going to get offed, more Brad and Chad, and if things go Obama’s way, chunks of Scripture will officially get tagged as hate speech, your church will have to hire RuPaul or face punishment, and our military will have to make room for Chippendale dancers on the base partly because of you, the Obama evangelical, who voted for such a change.
I, too, have wondered how religious leaders, pastors, etc can ignore this issue!
Finally, a Religious Leader with Guts
by Mike Gallagher
I want you to meet a priest from Greenville, South Carolina named Rev. Jay Scott Newman.
He is the pastor of St. Mary’s Catholic Church in downtown Greenville.
And he has become my personal hero.
In a nutshell, Fr. Newman told his parishioners that if they voted for Barack Obama, they embraced “intrinsic evil” since Obama’s opponent was a “plausible pro-life alternative.” And as a result, those Obama voters need to seek forgiveness from God before they receive Holy Communion again.
Does this guy have guts, or what?
Finally, a religious leader comes along and deals with the 800-pound elephant in the room: how do supposedly religious people reject the sanctity of life and support someone who voted against a “Born Alive Infant Protection” law which would protect babies accidentally born alive after a botched abortion?
Frankly, if that’s not evil, I’m not sure what is.
And it takes a priest in Greenville, South Carolina to rise up against all the moral relativism we face in the world and speak the truth.
In a letter posted on the church website, Rev. Newman said that Catholics who voted for a pro-abortion candidate should seek penance for their sin before receiving the Holy Sacrament of Communion, “lest they eat and drink their own condemnation.”
Of course, he’s not just making this up. He cites the Bible as the basis for his message, quoting from I Corinthians that forbids partaking of the body of Christ “without recognizing the body of the Lord.”
I’m pleased to report that the response from his congregation has been overwhelmingly positive. According to the priest, church members have approved of his message by a margin of 9 to 1, which leaves me to wonder why those in the minority would see fit to question their pastor.
When discussing this gutsy priest on my radio show this week, a few liberals called in and complained about him “mixing politics with religion.”
It seems to me that life and death issues aren’t very political in nature. At least they shouldn’t be.
And the fact that the left has managed to turn the issue of abortion into “politics” is simply a deceitful way to try and make the taking of an unborn baby’s life something as mundane and ordinary as taxes or fixing potholes.
The Catholic Church has certainly had its hands full in dealing with controversies and ugliness. There is no question that many wish the church would have better handled the terrible scandal of sexually abusive priests over the years.
As a result of that scandal, many Christian- and Catholic-bashers saw fit to condemn the entire Roman Catholic Church with hateful and vicious attacks, despite the fact that millions of loyal, faithful Catholic churchgoers were as appalled by the abusers as anyone else.
But one thing that can be said with clarity and consistency: the Catholic Church has been a beacon in leading the fight against the destruction of the unborn.
Say what you will, but few religious faiths and organizations have had the rock-solid conviction to fight for unborn babies like the Catholic Church has had.
And judging by the actions of this one priest in South Carolina, they’re just getting started.
I pray that more priests, ministers, and rabbis follow suit.
How can a spiritual leader stand at the pulpit every week and ignore the slaughter of millions of innocents?
Why would a pastor be inclined to defend an individual, politician or otherwise, who could support partial-birth abortion or the destruction of the life of an unborn baby at any stage?
May a hero like Rev. Jay Scott Newman of St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Greenville, South Carolina serve as a wake-up call to sleepy, lazy church leaders who don’t want to address this issue, one of the most important issues of our lifetime.
If our church leaders don’t fight for the unborn, who will?
