Right to Pray in Jesus’ Name Restored in Virginia

The Governor of Virginia Bob McDonnell has restored the rights of six State Police Chaplains to pray publicly "in Jesus name," reversing the policy of his politically correct predecessor Governor Tim Kaine who forced the chaplains to deny Christ or resign from their jobs. Now that McDonnell has fulfilled his campaign pledge, the six chaplain heroes who had turned in their badges rather than deny Christ, will be invited back to their chaplain jobs, and given free speech to pray "in Jesus name."

This victory was largely the result of the tireless of efforts of Chaplain Gordon Klingenschmitt who had been previously court-martialed by the politically correct U.S. military for praying in Jesus’ Name.

Oklahoma Approves One Of The Nation's Strictest Anti-Abortion Laws

On April 27, 2010 the Oklahoma House voted to override a veto of an abortion measure that Governor Brad Henry has called an unconstitutional intrusion into citizens' private lives and decisions. The Center for Reproductive Rights, a national abortion rights group, calls it among the nation's strictest anti-abortion measures.

The measure requires women to undergo an ultrasound and listen to a detailed description of the fetus before getting an abortion. It is hoped that with this new law in place, women will view the fetus for what it really is, a living unborn human, and not just some sort of obtrusive and unwanted mass of tissue.

Governor Henry is often on the wrong side of conservative issues. In his defense however, he has recently signed laws requiring clinics to post signs stating a woman cannot be forced to have an abortion, stating that an abortion will not be performed until the woman gives her voluntary consent, and that abortions based on child's gender are illegal.

Nebraska also put new restrictions on abortion this month, enacting a law that bars the procedure at and after 20 weeks of pregnancy based on the assertion that fetuses can feel pain at that point.

What Nerve! Arizona Plans to Enforce Immigration Law.

After 30 years of the U.S. Congress and four presidents failing to enforce our immigration laws, the most diligent and forceful immigration measure in the nation (SB 1070) became law in Arizona on April 23, 2010. Why would Arizona want to enforce current immigration law? Perhaps part of the decision has to do with the fact that Arizona has been repeatedly victimized by murder, rape, drug traffic, tens of thousands of stolen vehicles and so many kidnappings that it has become known as the kidnapping capital of America.

The new law aims to identify, prosecute and deport illegal immigrants. It will prosecute, fine and jail anyone that hires an illegal alien. It will also require police to question people about their immigration status if there is a reason to suspect they’re in the country illegally. The law will make the failure to carry immigration documents a crime and give the police power to detain anyone suspected of being in the country illegally. While police demands of certain documents such as a driver’s license are common on subways, highways and in public places, Arizona is the first state to demand that immigrants meet current federal requirements to carry identity documents legitimizing their presence on American soil.

The United States already has illegal immigration laws, but they have been poorly enforced. How is it that we have successfully secured the South Korean border for the past 50 years, not allowing a single illegal North Korean to cross the border? We have shown that we are quite capable of securing another nation’s border, while at the same time, failing miserably to secure our own border with Mexico.

America’s current position of not enforcing its illegal immigration laws shows a lack of respect for the rights of our legal citizens and lack of respect for our borders, while at the same time pandering to illegal aliens. Where else but in America can a person break the law and be rewarded with free health care and a free education?

Although more than 70 percent of Arizona’s voters approved of the measure, there has been a great outcry against it by other people of influence. President Obama said that the law is misguided and irresponsible and it threatens to undermine basic notions of fairness that we cherish as Americans. Mexico’s foreign ministry said that it is worried about the rights of its citizens. Cardinal Roger Mahony of Los Angeles said the authorities’ ability to demand documents is like Nazism. And, the Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund said that Arizona’s governor caved in to the radical fringe.

It’s an upside world we live in, when we celebrate that which is wrong and we chastise that which is proper and right.

Kansas Spreads Out the Welcome Mat for Late Term Abortions

The Governor of Kansas has thrown his hat into the ring for ensuring that Kansas remains the Late-Term Abortion Capital of the United States. A bill requiring doctors to furnish the specific diagnosis justifying a late-term abortion was vetoed by Governor Mark Parkinson on April 16, 2010.

The bill would have helped law enforcement agencies determine if late-term abortions done after viability are being done in compliance with the law. “Viability” is the point at which the fetus becomes potentially able to live outside the mother’s womb, which is typically agreed to be around 24 weeks, even though there are living and breathing people who were born after only 21 weeks gestational age.

In defending his decision, Governor Parkinson said that according to his viewpoint, all abortions are tragedies, which is why he would encourage women who have unwanted pregnancies to consult with their partners, families, doctors and spiritual advisors. He also said that he would not encourage women to consult with state legislators, as this is a private decision and should not be dictated by public officials. Due to the fact that “viability” means that a child is capable of living outside of the mother’s womb, a frivolous late-term abortion is equivalent to murder. Yet the governor says that these procedures are strictly a woman’s decision, and the law has no place in the matter.

Peter Brownlie, chief executive officer and president of Planned Parenthood of Kansas and Mid-Missouri said he is grateful that the governor vetoed the bill. Brownlie continued, saying that he wished the Kansas legislature would focus on passing the state’s budget rather than engaging in a sham exercise in political posturing. In addition to those remarks, he said that the Kansas legislature should stop wasting time playing political games with women’s health.

Kansas’ current state law bans abortions after the 22nd week of pregnancy unless a physician certifies that continuing the pregnancy would cause serious harm to the woman. But currently, doctors are not required to provide the specific diagnosis justifying the abortion. “What,” you may ask, “does the governor’s veto do?” It ensures that the existing laws on late-term abortions cannot and will not be enforced.

In Kansas, doctors may perform late-term abortions if they believe that the pregnancy seriously threatens the mental or physical health of the would-be mother. According to abortion opponents, that provision means that some of the procedures are carried out for reasons as flimsy as not wanting to miss a school dance. In 2008, there were 323 late-term abortions performed in Kansas.

This veto was rendered by a man who was put in office by an electorate made up of a Christian majority. How is it that laws are made and manipulated by representatives who have been put in office by supposedly life-respecting people?

National Day of Prayer is Unconstitutional

On April 15, 2010, U.S. District Judge Barbara Crabb of Wisconsin ruled that the National Day of Prayer is unconstitutional. Bowing to the loud voice of The Freedom From Religion Foundation, a group of atheists and agnostics, she determined that the federal law establishing a National Day of Prayer violates the “establishment of religion” clause of the Constitution. The Crabb ruling generated outright glee among atheists, agnostics and others who decry any government acknowledgement of any religion as a danger.

Despite the fact that the National Day of Prayer law compels no one to pray, mandates no expenditure of federal tax dollars, is not made a part of public school curriculums and establishes no penalty whatsoever for those who choose to ignore the day, the federal judge said the law didn’t pass constitutional muster.

“It goes beyond mere ‘acknowledgment’ of religion because its sole purpose is to encourage all citizens to engage in prayer, an inherently religious exercise that serves no secular function in this context,” Crabb wrote.

The National Day of Prayer has roots back to the Continental Congress in 1775, but was officially established by an act of Congress — which established the day in 1952 during the Truman administration.

The federal judge’s ruling was the result of a very vocal segment of our society that is bent on forcing faith out of the public square. It’s all about a movement to establish a nation that is free from religion. Although this nation is currently made up of a Christian majority, such rulings are becoming law due to the fact that our “Closet Christians” refuse to speak their minds.
