Commenting on a new book that favors pedophilia, Denny Burk raises doubts as to how far off cultural acceptance of this behavior might be. He says, "It is common today to believe that sexual orientation is an innate quality and defines a person’s identity. To suppress that identity in any way causes harm. We must affirm people’s self-identity (i.e., sexual orientation) in order for them to be whole and healthy. As long as they aren’t hurting anyone, it is wrong to pronounce a moral judgment on how they choose to live their identity. Or at least that’s how the argument commonly goes. It is a truncated morality in which the only norm is consent."
A new study from Sweden reveals that homosexuals who “marry” each other are 270% more likely to commit suicide than those in heterosexual marriages. The risk, the authors acknowledge, could be as high as 480%. This is a staggering and sobering finding. The explanation is surely found in the truth that homosexual conduct is, as Paul put it in Romans 1, “contrary to nature” and leads inevitably to destructive outcomes since it represents such a perversion of God’s design for humanity. As Paul goes on to say, those who indulge in this form of sexual immorality are destined to “receiv(e) in themselves the due penalty for their error” (Romans 1:26-27).
In this article, Andrew Heath, Gov. Pat McCrory’s state budget director, responds to the false narrative that HB2 is hurting North Carolina's economy. He says, "The HB2 questions are generally fueled by a false narrative that the law is having a devastating economic impact. This narrative has been so consistently pushed by advocacy groups that people are having an emotional response to it rather than basing what they believe on facts."
Do you realize what is happening in Alabama? The unelected Judicial Inquiry Commission (JIC) and a biased left-wing organization, the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) want your duly-elected Chief Justice Roy Moore removed from office. The JIC charges that Chief Justice Moore acted unethically, but can you explain why the Chief Justice's actions were so "unethical"? This is important because if "unethical" means whatever the JIC says it means, elections mean very little indeed.
In this open letter, Dr. Tom Form responds to the Alabama Judicial Inquiry Commission's politically-motivated complaints against Chief Justice Roy Moore. "We have scrutinized the charges," Ford says. "We have read the complaints that facilitated those charges. We have read every exhibit that you attached. We search in vain for a legitimate ethics charge against Chief Justice Moore. You levy six charges against the Chief Justice. Every one of them is due to be dismissed for failure to state a cognizable claim."
Obergefell grossly misused the Fourteenth Amendment and directly attacked the family, but it wasn't the first Supreme Court opinion to do so. In this article taken from a court opinion authored by Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore, Moore shows how "Obergefell is the culmination, beginning with Griswold in 1965, of 50 years of judicial usurpation of the right of the people to govern themselves and, in particular, of the states to protect from attack 'the idea of the family, as consisting in and springing from the union for life of one man and one woman in the holy estate of matrimony.' "
Does an opinion of the United States Supreme Court, like Obergefell, which blatantly affronts the Constitution, automatically become the "rule of law" and the "law of the land?" Most Americans think so. However, if one examines both the Constitution and the moral foundation upon which law is built, it soon becomes apparent that this is not the case. In this article taken from a court opinion authored by Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore, Moore thoroughly demonstrates that "[t]he Obergefell opinion, being manifestly absurd and unjust and contrary to reason and divine law, is not entitled to precedential value."
A bishop from the evangelical wing of the Church of England is urging fellow clerics to rethink what the bible says about homosexuality. Ken Ham comments on the issue. "Notice how [the bishop's] rationale for reinterpreting the Bible’s teaching comes from something outside of God’s Word," he says. "His mind wasn’t changed because of the Bible. He has allowed himself to be influenced by factors outside of God’s Word and is reinterpreting God’s Word based on these outside influences."
On March 4, 2016, the Alabama Supreme Court issued a certificate of judgment in response to Obergefell v. Hodges, leaving in place its previous holding that Alabama's Sanctity of Marriage Amendment is constitutional. Concurring specially with the judgment, Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore wrote an opinion thoroughly demonstrating that Obergefell "is an immoral, unconstitutional, and tyrannical opinion." Spanning 60 pages, Moore's opinion is without question the best and most professional defense against Obergefell ever written.
Alabama resident Hannah Ford criticizes the politically motivated attempts to remove Chief Justice Roy Moore. "What is wrong with the legal profession?" Ford asks. "What happened to the 'give me liberty or give me death' lawyers of Patrick Henry’s caliber? Has the idea of a 'public servant' been buried in the ashes of position, fear, and comfort? Governors, judges, appointees, legislators and lawyers: Are you listening to us?" Ford continues, "When we elect a Chief Justice, it’s not an accident."
NC Lt. Governor Dan Forest and FRC President Tony Perkins write on President Obama's push to put men into women's bathrooms. They write, "As the world careens from one precipice to the next, President Obama cannot stop obsessing over his determination to 'fundamentally transform' the historic and accurate understanding of human sexuality always upheld in morality, law and custom. Americans should ponder this question: If the White House can dictate the policies of the bathrooms of America, is anything beyond its reach?"
"Focal Point" radio host Bryan Fischer tells us what we can expect to happen in women's bathrooms as a result of Target and President Obama's radical bathroom policies. "Video voyeurs can now establish high-tech peepholes virtually anywhere thanks to advances in technology," Fischer says. "In alarming numbers they will soon be filming our daughters in department store dressing rooms and school shower rooms thanks to Target and President Obama."
In this 15-minute broadcast, Jerry Newcombe discusses the recent suspension of Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore with constitutional attorney Col. John Eidsmoe. They both agree that Moore's suspension really had nothing to do with ethics violations, but rather his views on Obergefell and same-sex "marriage."
In his dissent from the majority opinion in Obergefell v. Hodges, Justice Antonin Scalia made some significant statements. "[I]t is not of special importance to me what the law says about marriage," he says. "It is of overwhelming importance, however, who it is that rules me. Today’s decree says that my Ruler, and the Ruler of 320 million Americans coast-to-coast, is a majority of the nine lawyers on the Supreme Court...to allow the policy question of same-sex marriage to be considered and resolved by a select, patrician, highly unrepresentative panel of nine is to violate a principle even more fundamental than no taxation without representation: no social transformation without representation."
North Carolina Lt. Gov. Dan Forest recently gave close to a 30 minute interview on HB2 with ABC11 in Raleigh, only of which about 60 seconds was shown on TV. A lot of what was discussed with the reporter needs to be shared, so he is releasing videos throughout the week to highlight several topics left out of the newscast. This first video is about Attorney General Loretta Lynch’s "Jim Crow" comments.
In this edition of the Generations Radio Broadcast, Kevin Swanson discusses the suspension of Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore with Dr. Tom Ford, spokesperson for Sanctity of Marriage Alabama. The politically-motivateed complaints brought against Moore, we learn, were spearheaded by an anonymous drag queen—Ambrosia Starling. And it’s not likely that Moore will receive any support from Alabama Gov. Robert Bentley, who has himself been caught in an affair with one of his aides. The nation collapses when drag queens rule and philandering governors refuse to fight for liberty or defend the last man of courage left in the state.
Alabama Rep. Rich Wingo writes on Chief Justice Moore's suspension by the Judicial Inquiry Commission. "Some of the top legal experts in the state believe that the Judicial Inquiry Commission, which voted to suspend Moore, has acted outside of its jurisdiction, and they note that Moore was not a named party in any of the involved cases, and, thus, cannot be accused of violating a court order," Wingo says. "If this unwarranted attack on Moore is successful, it will open the door for the politically correct Gestapo to punish any judge whose opinions do not rigidly conform to their dangerous social demands."
The Obama administration is pushing hard to make school bathrooms gender-neutral. Will the states hold the line against the “all-powerful” federal government? In this program, Generations Radio Host Kevin Swanson shows us how to apply biblical principles to the area of bathroom policy.
Denny Burk, Professor of Biblical Studies at Boyce College, writes about President Obama's new open-bathroom directive. "This radical directive is a heavy-handed, unconstitutional overreach in order to force Americans to pretend that some boys are girls and some girls are boys," Burk says. "It is absurd and wrong. And I wonder if this may not be a bridge too far even for people who are otherwise liberal. Are fathers going to be okay with their daughters undressing in locker rooms where boys can see them? No matter how much one may support President Obama, what dad would go along with this?"
North Carolina's Lt. Governor Dan Forest joined Bill Hemmer of Fox News this morning to discuss the Obama Administration’s actions this past week to hold North Carolina hostage with the threat of lawsuits and federal funds in order to push their leftist agenda—which would uphold a radical ordinance passed by the city of Charlotte.
Denny Burk comments on a video released Monday by the Family Policy Institute of Washington, in which multiple Seattle University students, when questioned, declare that there isn't really any difference between men and women. "What you are seeing here is a willingness to abandon reason and common sense in order to prop-up fictional identities," Burk says. "To put it in theological terms, it’s 'suppressing the truth in unrighteousness' (Rom. 1:18). It’s evicting God’s revelation about the way things are in order to ensconce an anthropological fiction."
Bryan Fischer writes on Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore's suspension by the Alabama Judicial Inquiry Commission. He says: "Constitutional liberty now has just one lone judicial defender in America. If Judge Moore goes down, the last vestige of true freedom will go down with him. We truly will no longer be citizens but serfs, abjectly submissive to our judicial overlords."
At Loyola Marymount University, the Bias Incident Response Team and the Los Angeles Police Department have been mobilized to investigate an alleged “hate crime." The offense is "denying transgenderism," according to one of the offended students. In this article, attorney David French comments on the situation: "It is not criminal to state biological facts about gender . . . The very fact that the school’s Bias Incident Response Team reached out to the Los Angeles Police Department is a pathetic joke."
We are witnessing the ultimate insidious evil winding its way around the children of a nation. Disney reaches a new low as it transforms the old children’s stories into tales of homosexuals doing homosexual things. Should we send a ten-year-old daughter into a public restroom at Target or Hilton Hotels? Do these entities do violence to the bodies or to the minds of children—or both? We have arrived at the very depths of social degradation, but what should Christian families do? Get on the ark.
Last night, NC Lt. Governor Dan Forest began airing this commercial on 3 TV stations in Charlotte—WSOC, WBT and WCCB—reiterating his support for HB2, the bill that blocked Charlotte’s bathroom ordinance. "If keeping men out of women’s showers and bathrooms protects just one child or one woman from being molested or assaulted, then it was worth it,” Forest said in the video. “And if a corporation wanting to do business here can’t see the value of our children, they’re making a grave mistake," he said.
