Will Pro-Marriage Church Schools Lose Tax Exemptions?

Comments Off on Will Pro-Marriage Church Schools Lose Tax Exemptions?

As the nation awaits the US Supreme Court’s decision on the marriage challenge, due any day now, Justice Alito asked the Obama Administration’s Solicitor General Donald B. Verrilli his opinion: Will church-owned colleges and universities lose their tax-exempt status for their religious belief that marriage is between a man and a woman?

Verrilli responded: “I don’t think I can answer that question without knowing more specifics, but it’s certainly going to be an issue. I don’t deny that. I don’t deny that, Justice Alito. It is going to be an issue.”

Watch how the Southern Baptists responded:

The Southern Baptists have staked their ground, and they have chosen civil disobedience, vowing a “showdown” at the Supreme Court. They will not cave in, they say, as so many other religions have.

They call it a “Bonhoeffer moment” for religious leaders. Ronnie Floyd, new Southern Baptist Convention leader quoted the German religious hero, “Silence in the face of evil is itself evil: God will not hold us guiltless. Not to speak is to speak. Not to act is to act.”

Blessings to these courageous religious leaders. History does repeat itself. If you have been watching the brilliant A.D. TV series, you will notice the similarities of our times to the Meridian times, post-Christ, when the disciples also had to make a choice: would they allow Rome and the Sanhedrin to silence them, or would they stand for truth at all costs? They pledged the later, and they became martyrs.

If church and synagogue leaders aren’t willing to defend religious liberty at all costs, then who will? If the Supreme Court rules against those religious tenets and if tax exemptions are hanging in the balance, what real option is there, unless we wish to become slaves to an atheist, agnostic, secular humanist, and dare I say, a fascist state?

Ronald Reagan also reminded us, “Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.”

Sunset is on its way. Where do you stand?

We have fought in two circuit courts and at the US Supreme Court with amicus briefs funded by the American Leadership Fund. It has been costly. We need to raise another $6,000 to cover legal expenses – win or lose. We have taken a stand and we will not compromise the need for every child to have both a mother and a father.

Pope Demotes Outspoken Cardinal

20 Comments

American Leadership FundRumor has it that the Pope is weakening the Catholic church’s stance on homosexuality and gay marriage. The latest indicator is yesterday’s announcement that long-time stalwart and pro-Marriage, pro-Life warrior Cardinal Raymond Burke was removed from the highest court of the Vatican and demoted to a mere ceremonial role.

Burke1000Rome2014_810_500_55_s_c1This is a sad and most troubling day, given the history of gay priests and pedophilia that has plagued the Catholic Church for so long.

We urge you to support Life Site News by signing its petition and sending a note of thanks to the Cardinal for his service. What a shame this has happened.

We pray for all churches today that they will remain true to the principles of the Gospel and that they will not buckle under pressure from those that seek to persecute and destroy religion with death by a thousand stabs, one at a time.

Why Young Adults Are Leaving the Church In Record Numbers

Comments Off on Why Young Adults Are Leaving the Church In Record Numbers

White background - long
Ray-Moore1South Carolina candidate for Lieutenant Governor Ray Moore is pleading with parents to enroll their children in anything but public schools. As a former pastor, Army chaplain and director of a Christian ministry for over 35 years, he’s got some strong evidence to back up his concerns.

The statistics show that between 70-80% of young adult evangelical Christians that spend their years in public education are leaving that system with intellectual smarts that have eroded their faith and turned them away from their belief in Marriage between a man and a woman. Hostility toward Christians has also spiked.

Moore is right on target. He’s been around long enough to recognize that public education trends (including common core, which has a direct connection to LGBT activists through the AIR testing organization) have been aimed at a secular humanist approach to education. God has been removed from the classroom and the curriculum consistently requires knowledge to be defined only through the lens of the scientific method, which discredits religious belief.

How refreshing to listen to a candidate that is speaking truth about the school system. World Net Daily reports.

Watch him bravely indict the system here:
