The Right’s Response To SCOTUS Gay Marriage Outcome Should Be…

Supreme Court building 2 SC The Rights Response To SCOTUS Gay Marriage Outcome Should Be...

In today’s Washington Post, Ralph Reed states:

Look, if the Supreme Court does with marriage what it did on abortion, which is to impose the laws of New York and Massachusetts and impose them on the rest of the country by judicial fiat, it will make this issue more divisive and contentious, not less so.

Reed makes the often-made mistake by conservatives of assigning powers to the Supreme Court that it doesn’t possess.

The Supreme Court didn’t “impose” any laws on any states since the judiciary possesses no lawmaking powers. Individual sovereign states merely treated a toothless, unconstitutional, immoral court opinion as if it were actual law. In other words, individual sovereign states ceded lawmaking power and authority to the court, which the court never possessed in the first place. (As Romney did when he falsely asserted the court forced him to sign into law $50 co-pay abortions and pass out marriage licenses to same-sex couples in Massachusetts).

This is what I believe Christian and conservative leaders should be proactively saying now in anticipation of the Court’s likely ruling that barring same-sex “marriage” is unconstitutional:

If the Supreme Court rules the exclusivity of male-female marriage to be unconstitutional, they will have issued an anti-Constitutional, illegal, immoral, and legally null and void administrative opinion (as Roe v Wade was) that each individual sovereign state has the Constitutional and moral obligation to ignore since any law or court opinion contrary to God’s Divinely Revealed Law is no law at all and since the judiciary possesses no lawmaking authority. As President Lincoln once famously said, ‘..if the policy of the government, upon vital questions, affecting the whole people, is to be irrevocably fixed by decisions of the Supreme Court, the instant they are made, in ordinary litigation between parties, in personal actions, the people will have ceased, to be their own rulers, having, to that extent, practically resigned their government, into the hands of that eminent tribunal.’ May that not be the case in our nation.

When conservatives perpetuate toxic liberal lies by ceding their illogical, specious, and faulty premises and pre-suppositions (in this case that court opinions become the “law of the land” the moment they are issued), we always lose…

If “God Hates Hands That Shed Innocent Blood”…

Cross SC If “God hates hands that shed innocent blood”…

…And if civil government’s primary duty is to protect the God-given right to life for all innocent human persons, then why is it that “we the people” continue to elect people to all levels and branches of government who perpetually fail to fulfill their primary moral and Constitutional obligation as God’s civil magistrates…to protect the God-given right to life?

And why do so few Christian leaders, pastors, and members of the media with large platforms fail to demand that they do so?

And are we as Christians any less to blame for the bloodshed (4,000 innocent tiny babies murdered today and every day in our country) when we continue to support, fund, and cast our precious votes for those who refuse to fulfill their primary duty as God’s civil magistrate?

Isn’t it time that we demand that in return for our vote that any candidate running for any public office promise to fulfill his/her primary moral and Constitutional duty to protect, defend, and enforce the God-given right to life for all who are made in the image of God no matter their age, color, physical disability, or stage of development?

Can a God bless any nation that permits the shedding of innocent blood?

I think not…

“We will have to repent in this generation…not merely for the vitriolic words and actions of the bad people, but for the appalling silence of the good people.” ~MLK

“Those rights, then, which God and nature have established, and are therefore called natural rights, such as are life and liberty, need not the aid of human laws to be more effectually invested in every man than they are; neither do they receive any additional strength when declared by the municipal laws to be inviolable. On the contrary, no human legislation has power to abridge or destroy them, unless the owner himself commit some act that amounts to forfeiture.” William Blackstone

“The appellee and certain amici argue that the fetus is a ‘person’ within the language and meaning of the Fourteenth Amendment. In support of this, they outline at length and in detail the well known facts of fetal development. If this suggestion of personhood is established, the appellant’s case, of course, collapses, for the fetus’ right to life would then be guaranteed specifically by the Amendment.”
Justice Harry A. Blackmun, Roe vs. Wade, 1973

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. That to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men…”

The Declaration of Independence

“We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.”

The Preamble, or Statement of Purpose, of the United States Constitution

“God who gave us life gave us liberty. Can the liberties of a nation be secure when we have removed a conviction that these liberties are the gift of God? Indeed I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just, that his justice cannot sleep forever.” Thomas Jefferson

“You shall not murder.”

Exodus 20:13

“Our fathers, recognizing God as the author of human life, proclaimed it a ‘self evident truth’ that every human being holds from the Creator an inalienable right to live … If this right be denied, no other can be acknowledged. If there be exceptions to this central, this universal proposition, that all men, without respect to complexion or condition, hold from the Creator the right to live, who shall determine what portion of the community shall be slain? And who shall perpetrate the murders?”Joshua R. Giddings, 1858, in reference to the 14th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.

The Real Reason Romney Lost

Mitt Romney CPAC 2011 SC The Real Reason Romney Lost

Now that Mitt Romney lost to one of the most unpopular presidents in U.S. history, the question many are asking is why?

Political pundits on the Left and Right are claiming that Romney appealed too much to the “extreme Right fringe” and was not “moderate enough.”

The truth is that the exact opposite is true.

Prior to the 08’ election, I wrote an article entitled, “RINO=GOP RIP” and warned the GOP not to nominate a liberal establishment candidate like Rudy McRomney for the simple reason that it is virtually impossible to win a national presidential election without your base on election day as 1976, 1992, and 1996 all demonstrated. Unfortunately, the GOP elites thought the pro-family/pro-life Christian base would hold their proverbial noses and vote for their candidate who was essentially a liberal Democrat, John McCain regardless.

They were wrong.

Obama won in an historical landslide.

Fast forward to 2012, and many of us warned that if the GOP once again nominated an establishment-approved liberal like Romney that it would virtually assure 4 more years of the Neo-Marxist radical community organizer in the White House since, again, it’s virtually impossible to win without your base on election day.

But once again, the liberal elites who essentially run the GOP (Reince Priebus, Karl Rove, The Bushies, the folks over at Fox News, the Weekly Standard, and National Review) rammed yet another establishment liberal RINO down our throats who was, from the very beginning, destined for defeat.

Obama’s base turned out Tuesday night.

Romney’s  didn’t.

And why should they have?

After all, in just the past few months, Romney did virtually everything possible to snub the very same Evangelical conservative GOP “Values Voters” base (whose support he would need in every one of the key swing states he lost the other night) by:

  • Refusing to sign the Susan B. Anthony and Personhood U.S.A pro-life pledges.
  • Reaffirming his opposition to bans on homosexual scoutmasters.
  • Opposing 100% pro-life, pro-family, across the board conservative Senatorial candidate Todd Akin.
  • Running pro-abortion ads in key pro-life swing states.
  • Stating that “abortion legislation” and Chick Fill-A was not “part of his agenda.”  (marriage, life, and small business not “part of your agenda?”)

Santorum was right when he said that Romney was the “worst Republican in the country to run against Obama.”

Having lost his own senate re-election bid by 18 points in 2006 by snubbing his own base (by supporting uber-liberal Arlen Specter over conservative primary challenger Pat Toomey), Santorum was all too familiar with what happens when your base stays home on election day.

The GOP elites should have listened to sweater vest Santorum.

So, how do we stop perpetually repeating this mistake every 4 years, you ask?

Simple.

Christian and conservative leaders and grassroots citizens must make it clear that we will, under no circumstances, compromise our core moral and spiritual beliefs by supporting godless liberals like Romney for public office, no matter how many times the liberal GOP inside-the-beltway elites tell us our 100% pro-life, pro-marriage, pro- rule of law Constitutional conservative Christian candidate isn’t “electable.”

When we set the standard based on God’s authoritative Word and tell those running to represent us that if they don’t meet that standard that they will not get our support, I believe we will get candidates who truly represent us.

I’m talking about candidates who believe that our rights come from God and who actually understand that the primary purpose of civil government is to protect and defend those God-given (inalienable) rights (chiefly the right to life without which all other rights are meaningless) and that every elected official at every branch and level of government possesses the same sworn obligation to enforce the imperative requirements of the Supreme Law of the Land.

There were obviously millions of Christians and conservatives who don’t subscribe to the utilitarian-secular-humanist and anti-Biblical “lesser of two evils” construct who refused to cast a vote for the most radically pro-abortion, pro-homosexual governor in the history of the Republic, regardless of who his opponent was.

If the GOP is serious about reversing course in the next election, they may want to run actual candidates whom the base will actually turn out for on election day.

Because, as Romney proved Tuesday night, you don’t win without your base on election day…

Will Mitt Romney Be Our Nation’s First Priest President?

Mitt Romney 3 Will Mitt Romney Be Our Nation’s first Priest President?

(Editor’s note: The view expressed here are solely those of the author.)

It is frequently said that Mitt Romney’s Mormon religious beliefs are irrelevant because, as the common refrain goes, “We are electing a President not a Priest.”

Yet if Willard Mitchell Romney is elected as the nation’s 45th President, we would, ironically enough, actually be electing a priest president.

And while many may not think that Romney’s religious beliefs will influence how he governs, the core tenets of Romney’s own faith say otherwise.

Romney, who is a 5th generation high temple Mormon priest and great-great- grandson of Joseph Smith’s right hand man Parley Pratt (a major leader of the Mormon Church who was murdered by the estranged husband of his 12th wife) has frequently stated that he takes his Mormon faith “very seriously.”

The same polytheistic “faith” whose core doctrines, covenants, and prophetic pronouncements state that:

  • The Bible on its own can’t be trusted and that we can only understand it through the “revelations” of the Mormon “prophet” Joe Smith. (Mormon Doctrine, p. 670)
  • Jesus is the “spirit brother of Lucifer” and not God in the flesh. (Mormon Doctrine, p. 163.)
  • There is no hell. (Mormon Doctrine, p. 348)
  • Blacks have the “mark of Cain” (“a flat nose and black skin”) “and are cursed.” (Journal of Discourses, 7:290)
  • Women are inferior to men. (19th-century LDS leader Erastus Snow preached: “No woman will get into the celestial kingdom, except her husband receives her, if she is worthy to have a husband; and if not, somebody will receive her as a servant.”)
  • God came from another planet, has a body of flesh and bones like man’s and has a goddess wife, and we can become literal gods. (Journal of Discourses, vol. 2, p. 345; Brigham Young, Journal of Discourses, vol. 7, p. 333)
  • Only Mormons inherit the afterlife in the “celestial kingdom” and that there is no salvation outside the Mormon Church. (Mormon Doctrine, p. 670).

So, is it really fair to say that Romney’s deeply-held religious beliefs are irrelevant when Romney himself has sworn a blood oath in a secret Mormon temple ceremony to obey the Mormon Church and its prophet above the U.S. Constitution?

Go ahead and vote for the most radically pro-abortion, pro-homosexual, anti- family governor in U.S. History if you subscribe to what I believe to be the totally un-Biblical, utilitarian, and morally-relativistic “lesser of two evils” construct.

But let’s not delude ourselves that if we elect Romney to the office of the presidency, we’re not electing a priest whose primary allegiance is to the polytheistic, anti-Christical Mormon “church”, its “prophet”, and their apostate beliefs (and not to the United States Constitution.)

10 Questions You Will Never Hear Anybody In The Media Ask Obama Or Romney In The Debates

Obama Romney SC 10 Questions You Will Never Hear Anybody in the Media Ask Obama or Romney in the Debates

President Obama and Governor Romney:

  1.  How do you both reconcile the vast majority of American’s opposition to government mandated healthcare and taxpayer funded abortions with the fact that you both signed government run healthcare into law with individual mandates and abortion coverage?
  2. How do you reconcile the fact that the vast majority of Americans oppose homosexual scoutmasters with both your opposition to legal bans on homosexual scoutmasters?
  3. How do you reconcile the fact that the vast majority of Americans oppose homosexual “marriage” with the fact that you, President Obama, recently came out in favor of it and you Mr. Romney unilaterally, illegally, and unconstitutionally implemented it as governor falsely claiming the court forced you to?
  4. How do you reconcile the fact that the majority of Americans claim to be pro-life with the fact that you, President Obama, support abortion on demand including even after a failed abortion and you, Mr. Romney, signed $50 co-pay taxpayer-funded elective surgical abortions into law as part of Romneycare (3 years AFTER your supposed “pro-life conversion”) and refused to sign the Susan B. Anthony and Personhood U.S.A pro-life pledges?
  5. How do you reconcile the fact that the vast majority of Americans oppose laws that would force religious hospitals to violate their religious conscience by offering abortion services and distributing chemical abortion pills with the fact that you both forced Catholic Hospitals to do that very thing?
  6. How can you reconcile the fact that the vast majority of Americans oppose homosexual adoptions, with the fact you support it, President Obama, and as governor, Mr. Romney, you forced Catholic Charities, the nation’s largest adoption and foster-care agency, to place children with same-sex couples or go out of business (which they eventually did?)
  7. How can you both reconcile the fact that the vast majority of Americans feel that they are overtaxed with the fact that you support raising taxes (letting major portions of the Bush tax cuts expire), President Obama, and as governor, Mr. Romney, you opposed the Bush tax cuts and raised taxes and fees by close to a billion dollars which effectively, in addition to Romneycare, decimated the Massachusetts economy?
  8. How can you both reconcile the fact that most Americans oppose homosexuals serving in the military with your opposition to “don’t ask don’t tell?”
  9. How can you both reconcile the fact that most Americans oppose amnesty for illegals with your support, President Obama, for the DREAM ACT and your past support for McCain-Kennedy, Mr. Romney, as well as large parts of the DREAM ACT?
  10. How can you reconcile the fact that the vast majority of Americans oppose homosexual, lesbian, and transgender “education” with the fact you support it, President Obama, and as governor, Mr. Romney, you sponsored and endorsed homosexual “pride” parades as well as boosted funding for homosexual “education” starting in kindergarten?
