greetings in these last days of life on earth. In last months Newsletter I
shared the ever increasing push of Congress to pass laws in favor of sinful
lifestyles, and at the same time cause Christians to become targets of stiff
penalties when standing against such laws using Scripture. The evil politicians
that are obviously controlled by the hierarchy of
These Newsletters not only expose
Yes, I know
No well endowed intellect with the largest known skull cavity filled with immense portions of gray matter is needed to realize who has the most to gain here. Why is the obvious so avoided then? Could it be the fact that everyone today knows at least a few people on Psychotropic drugs? The dumbing down of the people, the couch and pew potato mentality, and the now prophecied pharmaceutical deceptions (Rev. 18:23) are making it next to impossible to get more then two or three people in a crowd to agree on doing something positive about all this. So.. it will happen as prophecied. Of course I am not saying we can stop it. Because the prophecy is sure. IT WILL HAPPEN. What we can do is be ready for it.
With that said, have you seen this article? (by the way.. this article pertains to American law)
Christians in bull's-eye
in new 'hate crimes' plan
Congress working to create penalties for non-PC views

A fast-tracked congressional plan to add special protections for homosexuals to federal law would turn "thoughts, feelings, and beliefs" into criminal offenses and put Christians in the bull's-eye, according to opponents.
"H.R. 1592 is a discriminatory measure that criminalizes thoughts, feelings, and beliefs [and] has the potential of interfering with religious liberty and freedom of speech," according to a white paper submitted by Glen Lavy, of the Alliance Defense Fund.
"As James Jacobs and Kimberly Potter observed in Hate Crimes, Criminal Law, and Identity Politics, 'It would appear that the only additional purpose [for enhancing punishment of bias crimes] is to provide extra punishment based on the offender's politically incorrect opinions and viewpoints,'" said Lavy.
The proposal has been endorsed by majority Democrats on the committee, and already has 137 sponsors in the full House, making it possible it could be voted on in a matter of days or weeks.
"This is a terrible thing, to criminalize thought or emotion or even speech," Lavy told WND, referring to H.R. 1592, now pending at the committee level in the U.S. House. Democrats there have been turning back amendments that would strip it of its worst provisions, according to an observer.
Bishop Harry Jackson, chairman of the High Impact Leadership Coalition, said the plan, the Local Law Enforcement Hate Crimes Protection Act of 2007, is no more than "a surreptitious attempt by some in Congress to strip the nation of religious freedom and the ability to preach the gospel from our church pulpits."
"It will stamp all over our doctrine and practice of our faith," he said. "We believe what the Bible says. If you start there we've got a major problem."
Stopping here for a moment…
Many believe this is no big
thing and it will blow over without a problem in due time. Of course these are
those that have not followed all that
Yes, they are gilding the
lily and making the Homosexual individual think same sex marriages is the prize
out of all this, just like Bush thinks the oil in

are unaware. The lawsuits
Truth is, all we see
happening in the news with Christians protesting and doing what they can to
slow the forward motion of all this is actually helping
If some really think such
laws cannot be passed in modern day
Continuing the article…
Secondly, it unfairly restricts the expression of fair opinion by Christians, he told WND. "If anything, gays are getting undue deference awarded to them by the courts. That's why we have the same-sex marriage fight and that kind of thing."
Rev. Louis Sheldon, director of the Traditional Values Coalition, which represents 43,000 churches across the nation, told WND that the Democrats sponsoring and supporting the issue "have sold out to the homosexual agenda."
He said churches need to awaken to the dangers of having pastors, lay leaders, or even those sitting in the pews sent to jail for their biblical views. "When they [realize they] could go to jail for preaching the Word of God, they'll be concerned," he told WND.
Sheldon's organization is releasing a poster showing Jesus as a wanted fugitive, for "crimes" under the planned "hate crimes" legislation.
WND columnist Janet Folger this week warned in a commentary called "Pastors: Act now or prepare for jail," that in New Hampshire, a crime that typically carries a sentence of 3 1/2 years was "enhanced" to 30 years because a robber shouted an anti-homosexual name at his victim.
"Think about it for a minute. If saying a mean anti-homosexual word adds an additional 23-26 ½ years to a sentence, and people live to around 80, that penalty is one-fourth of your life for the words you say.

Christians need to wake up and do as Jesus suggests they do so as to become more affective in their approach!
are going about this the wrong way. They are drawing undue attention on
themselves, which in turn makes it that much easier for
Yes, the Bible has the truth, and yes we are right and they are wrong on this one. But standing there as did the Pharisees of old with puffed up chests looking down on those that don’t see what we see does nothing but make Christianity appear hateful and judgmental. All this PRO-Christianity movement is doing here in the states is making the real Christianity appear hateful, judgmental, and undesirable to those we want to help in the first place. At the same time it’s generating enough concern in the halls of justice for them to try and do something about it. Again.. I know they will form unjust laws eventually anyway just as Revelation said they would. But why speed it up?

I just have to ask.. Is there a way Christians can infiltrate and share Present Truth with those in need without sinning? Or are there none wise enough to figure this one out?
You don’t have to be a homosexual to be a friend to one. Is there someone at work that embraces this sin? How about in your marketplace, a neighbor, a friend of a friend? Is there someone close enough to you that you know has a problem in this area that you can gently share Jesus with on a daily basis without generating anger? Not all homosexuals are angry. Not all seek to have you jailed. Especially if you are already friendly with them over the years. If the enemy of souls is able to strategically place his wicked among the people so as to spread sin. It’s a fact the Creator of those people can do a far better work at strategic placement then Satan can. The problem is, many Christians today are weak and fearful and apprehensive to do as the Holy Spirit moves them to do. They don’t realize how easy it actually is to share their faith.
It’s actually a lot easier than most realize. Jesus already did most of the work for us.
Bush VETO stops hate crimes bill. However, Rome STILL NEEDS THIS.. so expect a new approach to the same problem soon.
|President says 'hate crimes' plan unneeded
Advisers would recommend veto of discriminatory federal plan

One day after WND reported Christian activists were seeking a pledge from the president to veto a "hate crimes" bill now approved by the U.S. House, the White House issued a statement saying the proposal is "unnecessary and constitutionally questionable."
The plan, H.R. 1592 by U.S. Rep. John Conyers, D-Mich., is feared by opponents, as WND has reported, as a means to target Christians and to demolish both freedom of speech and religion in the United States. The House voted 237-180 for it today.
"The administration favors strong criminal penalties for violent crime, including crimes based on personal characteristics, such as race, color, religion, or national origin. However … if H.R. 1592 were presented to the president, his senior advisers would recommend that he veto the bill," the White House said.

Keep in mind this is a DEMOCRATIC "house" that voted FOR IT. Rome needs this law, and they need it soon! A "republican" President vetos it today. Will a Democrat gain the WhiteHouse in 2008? Will Rome get this bill, or one like it before the "Democratic" house again? And after the house approves it again, will the Democratic president allow it? Time will tell.
One way to get this Roman homosexual agenda well grounded as "the norm" for future generations is to get to the children when they are young...
insist: Being 'gay' good
'Educators' promoting homosexuality no matter what children learn at home.
9:34 p.m. Eastern

A nationally distributed training video produced by a "gay" advocacy group – which claims it's been shown on more than 100 public television stations – advises teachers to promote homosexuality as normal and healthy to children as young as kindergarten age, regardless of what values the child has been taught at home.
"We are asking kids to believe this [homosexuality] is right. Not as a matter of moral principle, but as a matter of, we're educating them and this is part of what we consider to be a healthy education," one unidentified teacher said during the videotaped meeting of educators preparing to teach – or as their critics charge, "brainwash" – their students.
..."It's one thing in the abstract to read about what's happening in the schools, it's another thing to actually see it," he said.
The videos are available for viewing on the Mass Resistance website.
The excerpts show actual footage of teachers indoctrinating children that homosexuality is "healthy education."
As WND has reported,
Could that target a statement of Christian belief, or a Bible verse? Sure, say those battling the issue.
Camenker said the videos originally were posted on Youtube, but were taken down suddenly to be replaced with some pro-homosexual promotions. "It's some really nasty stuff. The gays have put up things calling anybody who doesn't [endorse homosexuality] bigots," he said.
Camenker said the 78-minute video was produced and distributed by homosexual activists and is "meant to be a training video for homosexual activist teachers across the country."
The video shows administrators telling teachers to talk "about gay and lesbian issues" and teachers showing students pictures of celebrity homosexuals.
Students are grilled by teachers about how they would feel if someone told them they couldn't have two moms. "What do you mean by open-minded?" a teacher asks what appears to be about a 1st-grader.
"If you're not very open-minded, say there's a new vegetable, then you won't try it. If you are open-minded, then you would try it," the student responds.
Another teacher asks students to think about words that would "make a gay person feel bad."
Another adult is quoted, "I don't think it's appropriate that values only be taught at home …"
Still another segment shows young children applauding wildly as a teacher publicly announces his homosexuality.
