Case On Religious Counseling of Homosexuals Wanting Out Could Set Precedent

Posted July 24, 2013

Even though homosexuality is becoming more acceptable in today’s hedonistic society, it still carries a stigma about it as it should.  God says it’s an abomination.  It’s a sinful lifestyle, just like stealing, lying, incest, pedophilia, lust, greed and murder.

Gay activists believe that there is nothing wrong with homosexuality.  They also encourage millions of children and teens to explore same-sex attractions.  However, it’s not okay for a homosexual to explore normal straight relationships or seek counseling to help themselves overcome their sinful lifestyle and desires.  In fact, they feel so strongly about any form of counseling or therapy that helps homosexuals leave the lifestyle that they have tried to pass laws in California banning the practice.

Now, gay activists are filing lawsuits against religious organizations that help counsel those who want to overcome their homosexuality and lead a normal life.

Christian fined for refusing to photograph same-sex wedding

Posted July 24, 2013

When Christian photographers are asked to work same-sex weddings, do they have the right to refuse? Surprisingly, 85 percent of Americans say they do. If only their sentiments were the law.

Elaine Huguenin was asked to photograph a same-sex ceremony in New Mexico. She refused, citing her Christian beliefs.

She was fined $7,000 by the state Human Rights Commission, which claimed that she was guilty of discrimination for sexual orientation. The New Mexico Court of Appeals upheld the verdict.

OFA Plans a 'Tea Party' August

Posted July 24, 2013

Organizing for Action, the advocacy off-shoot of Obama's reelection campaign, has announced plans to copy the Tea Party and flood Congressional townhalls over the August recess. OFA's goal is to push House Republicans to support Obama's initiatives. The Left has spent years demonizing and attacking Tea Party activists. Now, they've decided to copy them. 

“We are excited for OFA’s Action August where volunteers across the country will be taking all their incredible skills, hard work and passion into their communities, organizing events all month long to keep the pressure on their members of Congress to take action on issues, from comprehensive immigration reform to protecting women’s rights and gun violence prevention to combating climate change, OFA Spokesman Ben Finkenbinder said in a statement.

Buckeye mutiny seeks to return Boehner to private life

Posted July 23, 2013

Conservatives on Capitol Hill are not the only ones frustrated with Speaker John A. Boehner.  Now a group of conservatives in Ohio-8, his congressional district are working to defeat him in the 2014 GOP primary.

According to the project’s website, the group came together and decided it was time to hold their own congressman accountable. “John Boehner–was no longer adequately representing the people in OH-8.”

In addition to challenging Boehner, the goal of the project is inform conservatives, so they can act before it is too late to stop the liberals, said its founder J. D. Winteregg, a 31-year-old Troy, Ohio schoolteacher.

“We’re tired of it, though. That’s why we’ve formed this group. We’ll be working to bring accountability back to our district—we’ll work to put a true conservative in office,” he said.

HUD Launches Scheme To Racially Diversify Suburbs

Posted July 23, 2013

Diversity: Now even ZIP codes are racist, and according to this race-obsessed administration, you're racist for living in a suburban area with little public housing. And it plans to change that.

In what may be the most ambitious social-engineering project undertaken by the federal government, the administration is mapping every neighborhood in America by race. The stated purpose is to use the data to compel local officials to loosen zoning laws and build more public housing, thereby offering more poor inner-city minorities better opportunities for housing and education.

But the unstated purpose is forced racial integration. The suburbs are just too white for Obama and his race-mongering social engineers.

Breaking News: New Defendants Added to True the Vote IRS Lawsuit

Posted July 24, 2013

Late yesterday, True the Vote added six new defendants and another charge of federal law being violated to its high-profile lawsuit with the Internal Revenue Service. The Washington Post reported, "A conservative group suing the Internal Revenue Service on Monday amended its lawsuit over the agency's processing of its request for tax-exempt status to include the agency's chief counsel, William Wilkins." This change to our suit will help expose all those involved in targeting conservative groups seeking recognized nonprofit status. Mr. Wilkins is one of only two people personally appointed by President Obama at the IRS. Stay tuned for more details in the coming weeks. To read the full amended filing, click here.


Battleground Texas: Political activism masking professional opportunism?

Posted July 24, 2013

The left’s Battleground Texas effort positions itself as a people-powered grassroots movement seeking to “turn Texas blue,” but its status as another advocacy project for Steve Mostyn, a Houston personal injury attorney and former president of the Texas Trial Lawyers Association also known in political circles both as a Democratic mega-donor and for his hurricane lawsuit specialization, reminds how political activism is sometimes a mask for professional opportunism.

Are Republicans already dissatisfied with their 2016 field?

Posted July 23, 2013

Some of the complaints: Sen. Marco Rubio has hurt himself by taking the lead on comprehensive immigration reform. Rep. Paul Ryan was on the last losing ticket and might also anger the base on immigration. Gov. Bobby Jindal fails to ignite Republican passions. Sen. Rand Paul can be divisive. Gov. Chris Christie is too willing to work with Democrats (especially the one in the White House). Rick Santorum doesn’t have broad enough appeal. Former Gov. Jeb Bush carries his family’s baggage.

None are crippling weaknesses, and any one of these potential candidates might look much different a year from now. But the fact is, Republicans are in a period of flaw-finding at the moment, and they are finding flaws in most of the politicians who will make up their 2016 field.

And then along comes Ted Cruz.

GOP Rep. Sarah Davis Op-Ed BLASTS Texas Republicans for Opposing Abortion

Posted July 23, 2013 - David Bellow

GOP Texas State Representative Sarah Davis has slammed Republicans in a Houston Chronicle Op-Ed. Davis says Republicans should not be passing abortion restrictions because it is "not the role of the government" and "the Republican Party should not dictate to women" whether or not they can have the choice to have an abortion (which we know means the choice to kill millions of unborn babies) That, she says, should be decided by a woman and her doctor.

This Op-Ed seems to be a response to the backlash Davis has seen after a recent article that I wrote asking the Texas GOP to follow the wishes of the Texas Republican Platform and NOT give Party money to pro-abortion candidates like Sarah Davis. Many in the Texas GOP were tricked by Davis into believing she was pro-life. I think this Op-Ed should make things pretty clear to all Texas GOP officials that Davis is NOT pro-life.

Attacks on Gohmert unwarranted; time to stop mudslinging

Posted July 22, 2013

There has been a stream of letters and commentaries in the Longview News-Journal of late taking potshots at Congressman Louie Gohmert. The purpose seems to be to make him vulnerable in the next election due to the many “accusations” that they bring against him.

However, these charges, when looked at in detail are little more than a mudslinging smear campaign against a man who has been the best representative of East Texas values in decades.

The latest such smear attempt comes from James Cogar. Of course, he begins by clarifying that he is not a Gohmert fan and did not vote for Gohmert. He then goes into a philosophical rant about racism and prejudice that sounds valiant and high principled. Who can deny that racial discrimination is a horrible thing?

Mr. Cogar makes several veiled references to things supposedly said by Congressman Gohmert, but never directly quotes Louie in any of his smears.

Unconstitutional loan guarantee by highway department raises ire

Posted July 22, 2013

With state and federal highway dollars pinched and toll road traffic taking a hit from a sustained economic downturn and high gas prices, states are looking for ways to get projects built with limited resources. Bond documents for the $2.6 billion Grand Parkway (State Highway 99) tollway reveal the bonds issued by the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) will be backed by the state highway fund for all but $200 million of the debt if toll revenues are insufficient. Counting interest, that's an obligation of up to $9.6 billion for Texas taxpayers, without approval or oversight from either voters or the Texas legislature.

There’s a catch to TxDOT’s loan guarantee. The Texas Constitution prohibits the state highway fund from being used to guarantee loans:
"Nothing contained herein shall be construed as authorizing the pledging of the State's credit for any purpose."(Article 8, Sec 7-a)

Ted Cruz Dismisses Talk of 2016 Presidential Bid While in Iowa

Posted July 22, 2013

In an interview for “This Week” with ABC News’ Jonathan Karl, Texas Republican Senator Ted Cruz dismissed talk of a potential 2016 White House bid, along with the question of whether he is ready to run for the highest office in the land after having been a senator less than a year.

“We are having a national debate about which direction the country should go…and what I am doing now is trying to participate in that national debate,” Cruz said Friday while in Iowa, a state frequented by those with White House ambitions. “I’m not focused on the politics…the last office I was elected to was student council. So this has been a bit of a whirlwind.”

Karl asked Cruz about his eligibility for the White House, which has been questioned given that he was born in Canada.

“My mother was born in Wilmington, Delaware. She’s a U.S. citizen, so I’m a U.S. citizen,” Cruz said.

Sen. Ted Cruz calls path to citizenship ‘profoundly unfair’

Posted July 22, 2013

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) said Sunday that a pathway to citizenship for undocumented immigrants would be unfair to those who have legally immigrated to the United States.

“I think a path to citizenship for those who are here illegally is profoundly unfair to the millions of legal immigrants who followed the rules,” Cruz said during an interview for ABC’s “This Week.”
Cruz added that he does not think a bill with such a path can pass the Republican-controlled House.
