A tax cut for Christmas resounds; another POTUS promise fulfilled – “We will say MERRY CHRISTMAS again”

Thursday, December 21st, 2017

Wow! This “Merry Christmas Week” has been full of surprises. Don’t let FAKE NEWS fool you – POTUS keeps his promises; the trickle down effects of the new tax cuts will bless everyone! So on the national scene, the “Trump Tax Cut” victory is making headlines; meanwhile in my private life, the traditional Home church (BBCC) Christmas Concert, special performances by grandchildren at Christmas concerts, a privately escorted tour of the Trump White House Christmas, and many activities with family and friends are delightful highlights for me this year.

While Christmas is always nostalgic for me because I miss my departed loved ones, and sad memories slip into the Christmas spirit, I am always revived by remembering “Granddaddy King’s” words: “Thank God for what we have left.”

If you are sad, lonely or hurting, please know that you are loved and be encouraged. God Loves you!

“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, [Jesus] that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” John 3:16

Here I am in the lovely East Colonnade hallway of the White House, where I was joined by Fr. Frank Pavone and Janet Morana of Priests for Life and Dr. Day Gardner of National Black Prolife Union. We were surrounded by friends and happy White House staff!

FAKE NEWS lied again. The WHITE HOUSE decorations are stunningly beautiful!

Last week there was Rome.

This week it’s Christmas at The White House. Meanwhile I’m praying, asking God to bless your house and the White House. On a side note, kudos to Senator Tim Scott for his successful support and advance work for the Trump Tax bill. Senator Scott’s unwavering focus and remarkable grace and Statesmanship are worth positive mention. God knows Christmas (while not the only time) is the best season for Love and Forgiveness.

Along with my new cookbook, GG’s Home for the Holidays Cookbook, and KING TRUTHS, a soon to be released new King Family Legacy Book, I’ve designed a Christmas Card Meme and recorded O HOLY NIGHT for you with the prayer that our Lord will bless your Christmas with God’s peace, comfort and joy.

Priests for Life, Alveda King, Participate in Vatican conference

Thursday, December 14th, 2017

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Date: December 13, 2017

TITUSVILLE, FL — Priests for Life and Evangelist Alveda King have just taken part in the Catholic Inspired Organization’s 2017 forum that met in Rome Dec. 11-13.

Alveda King is the director of Civil Rights for the Unborn, the African-American Outreach of Priests for Life. Bob Lalonde is the director for international activities for Priests for Life and is the organization’s main representative to the United Nations. Priests for Life participates at the UN as a registered NGO (Non-Governmental Organization) with special consultative status with the Economic and Social Council.

Catholic Inspired Organizations that are registered NGOs at the United Nations were first called together at the Vatican by Pope Benedict XVI. The gathering recognized that the UN is often the place where pro-abortion, anti-family concepts and language are introduced and attempts made to insert these concepts into international law. Catholic lay organizations are seen as the best defense against these radical attempts to normalize abortion, euthanasia and other anti-life measures.

“The mission of this gathering is a lofty one,” said Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, who worked at the Vatican under St. John Paul II at the Pontifical Council for the Family. “It aims to strengthen the Church’s voice in every aspect of society, but especially where the dignity of every human being – born or unborn – is concerned. Priests for Life is grateful to be included in this mission and we have much to contribute to these vital conversations.”

This was the first visit to the Vatican for Ms. King, the niece of the late Martin Luther King Jr.

“I’m traveling with a prayerful heart and an open mind to learn how those of us devoted to promoting the sanctity of every human life can work together,” Ms. King said.

Mr. Lalonde, who attended the conference for the second time, said “We appreciate the important efforts of the organizers and valuable contributions of all the participating international organizations.”

Priests for Life is the nation’s largest Catholic pro-life organization dedicated to ending abortion and euthanasia. For more information, visit www.priestsforlife.org.

Boycott a Distraction as Alveda’s “Rome for The Holidays” Tour with a special visit to Joan Lewis’ Home and more continues…

Monday, December 11th, 2017

171211 blog image

Amid protests and boycotts over his attendance during the opening of two civil rights museums in Jackson, Mississippi last week, our US President Donald John Trump said: “Martin Luther King, Jr. was a man I have studied, watched, and admired for my entire life.”

As God would have it, I read the account of POTUS’ visit to the new museums from Rome, Italy where yours truly has been invited to attend the Catholic-Inspired NGO’s Conference during this Christmas season.

In the midst of the stress, strife and distractions the world can cook up, especially during the holidays, the blessing of combing prayers, work and Christmas cheer is appropriate and indescribable. Meanwhile, President Trump’s words continue to be uplifting.

I’m considering this trip to Rome to be a Priests for Life working tour laced with holiday cheer. While here, I am remembering the words of Pope Francis in the section about the power of love to remain resilient, even in the face of trial, in his pastoral letter on the family, “Amoris Laetitia” where the Pope writes: “Here I think of the words of Martin Luther King who met every kind of trial and tribulation with fraternal love.” The Pope also quotes at length my Uncle’s 1957 sermon given at Montgomery’s Dexter Avenue Baptist Church, in which Uncle M. L. said: “The person who hates you most has some good in him; even the nation that hates you most has some good in it; even the race [Acts 17:26 One Blood/One Human Race] that hates you most has some good in it.”

Then Pope Francis expounded further on MLK’s words: “And when you come to the point that you look in the face of every [person] and see deep down within [that human being] what religion calls ‘the image of God’, you begin to love [people] in spite of [everything],” Dr. King continued.

Needless to say, MLK’s Message is relevant to the purpose and mission of my Christmas tour; which is spreading the message of The Agape Love of Christ and the sanctity of life around the world.

Photos and social media accounts of this journey are forthcoming on Priests for Life on the Frontlines.

Notwithstanding jet lag, the journey continues to be amazing. Along with visits to the Vatican, and meeting leaders of the Christian world, there’s also time for sightseeing such as St. Peter’s Square, The Trevi Fountain and quaint sidewalk cafes.

An exceptional delight has been the fellowship with the people of the Italian community; such hospitality at every turn, regardless of ethnicity, religion and socio-economic conditions.

A special interview and visit to the home of EWTN’s Joan Lewis has caused me to pause and make note of what I’m calling “GG’s (Gorgeous Grandma’s) Visit with Joan at her Home for the Holidays.” I can only wish that you’d been able to join us for the warm and delicious coffee, cake, and historical perusing among Joan’s collection of beautiful memories expressed in so many ways that lovely morning.

Since my blogs are usually filled with lectures, lessons, encouragement and prayers for concerns for the world, it’s a refreshing change of pace to share some joyful highlights.

However, there’s still some of the lecture mode going on during this journey as well. For instance, back home in America once again members of The Congressional Black Caucus and a few members of the “old guard 20th Century Civil Rights Movement” missed yet another opportunity to speak up for the civil rights of the unborn last Friday; choosing instead to boycott the opening of the two new civil rights museums in Mississippi, where POTUS attended to bless the historical site.

(Author’s Note: In a 1958 interview, MLK expressed his view that neither party was perfect, saying, “I don’t think the Republican Party is a party full of the almighty God nor is the Democratic Party. They both have weaknesses … And I’m not inextricably bound to either party.” MLK was never registered as Democrat or Republican. He was an Independent.)

Enough said about that for now; except that it’s all part of the “work” angle of my Rome mission; to bring awareness of the sanctity of life issues to light.

Meanwhile, God’s infinite love and mercy are allowing my heart to pray for you my beloved readers during this season; and to bring reconciliation to our broken communities.

As you join in by reading about my journaled Rome trek, and my soon to be released KING TRUTHS, if you are hurting in any way, maybe from loss of a loved one or some other painful situation, may God’s grace and goodness touch you during your deepest moments and bring light, love and healing to you!

There’s more to come from Rome before we head for Home. MERRY CHRISTMAS. Stay tuned. Chao!

The Dangerous Intent of Unproven Accusations

Friday, December 8th, 2017

171207 blog image

While recovering from jet lag in the midst of my first visit to Rome, Italy, I was stunned by a report that Congressman Trent Franks has been asked to step down from office. I immediately began to pray with an awareness that “the accuser of the brethren” is at work to silence the voices of conscience on The Hill.

“Then I heard a loud voice shouting across the heavens, “It has come at last— salvation and power and the Kingdom of our God, and the authority of his Christ. For the accuser of our brothers and sisters has been thrown down to earth— the one who accuses them before our God day and night.” Revelation 12:10

Unproven accusations are designed to bring strife, suspicion, division, hurt and harm to humanity. Such accusations not only hurt people’s reputations; they rend the fabric of the One Blood/One Human Race Community. (Acts 17:26)

This reminds me of the tragedy of Emmett Till who was unjustly slaughtered due to an accusation that was proven to be false after Emmett was brutally murdered.

Today in America this same tactic is being played and replayed where public figures are constantly being accused of crime and/or impropriety and “tried” in the media.

For those who are professing guilt, as they are appropriately stripped of or voluntarily abandon their seats of power, where is their path to redemption?

“Everyone has sinned; we all fall short of God’s glorious standard. Yet God, in his grace, freely makes us right in his sight. He did this through Christ Jesus when he freed us from the penalty for our sins.” – Romans 3:23-24

For those who stand accused and castrated without a trial we must ask where do they go to get their reputations, or in extreme cases such as Emmett Till, their lives back?

“Is it legal to convict a man before he is given a hearing?” John 7:51

Maybe we should all pray about calling a “Cease Fire Come to Jesus Moment” and repent corporately. Have we considered what it takes to build a reputation, and how sad it is to note how a person can be hurt by the false charges of irresponsible or ruthless people?

Such accusations can poison the atmosphere among society. Unsuspecting people can come to believe the worst about their neighbors or community leaders simply by hearing and believing false accusations. Once the vicious cycle begins, people can be motivated by the desire to accuse others.

Even as a post abortive secondary victim of abortion, I work very hard to remain in a position of repentance and forgiveness for those whom I hurt and for those who hurt me on my journey through life. A testimony should never seek only to expose a painful wrong, but to seek healing and reveal and discover how God can make things right for all parties involved.

Enemies of Agape Love and Truth seek to have us accuse each other and cause strife and division. God’s law is the law of love, where people are led to repent, forgive, and be healed; these are truths for life which are designed for us to follow.

Abortion to 22.5 Weeks, But Only for Healthy Mothers

Thursday, December 7th, 2017

Priests_for_Life_banner

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Date: December 7, 2017

Contact: Leslie Palma
732-757-9087

TITUSVILLE, FL — Another undercover call was released today by Priests for Life, working in conjunction with Abortion Free New Mexico, revealing late -term abortions of healthy babies carried by healthy mothers in the state of Florida.

Fr. Frank Pavone of Priests for Life and Tara Shaver of Abortion Free New Mexico issued the following statement about the call:

“Pro-abortion extremists demand that late-term abortions must remain legal in America for women whose lives are placed at risk if they don’t have access to them. This undercover investigation turns the tables on this pro-abortion fear mongering.

“In fact, in this new undercover phone call placed to Presidential Women’s Center in West Palm Beach, FL, the abortion worker tells the caller that a pre-screening is done before obtaining a late-term abortion at 22 weeks. The screening, however, is not to determine what life-threatening complication mandates the procedure; instead the abortion staffer reveals, ‘We want to make sure you’re healthy, that’s why we do the screening.’

“When the caller then specifically asks, ‘There doesn’t have to be anything wrong with the baby?’ to obtain the abortion, she is given an emphatic ‘No.’

“It’s time to move beyond the lies and disinformation being peddled by pro-abortion extremists. U.S. elected officials rely on accurate information and this investigation exposes that late-term abortions are being obtained by healthy women carrying healthy babies who by 20 weeks gestation are fully capable of feeling pain.

“Please share these undercover recordings with your U.S. Senators and urge them to support the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, S. 1922.”

To take action on this bill, see the action alert at www.StopAbortionNow.org.

Holiday Surprises – POTUS Promises, Peace for Jerusalem, An American Princess, Tax Cuts, and Moore…

Wednesday, December 6th, 2017

171206 blog image

“When peripherals collide, convergence is imminent.” Evangelist Alveda King www.civilrightsfortheunborn.com

It’s December 2017, and Christmas bells are ringing again in America as President Trump’s promise keeping roll is continuing. The POTUS “we will say Merry Christmas again” mantra is resonating. Meanwhile, President Trump’s support for Israel, undergirded by our “prayers for the peace of Jerusalem,” is encouraging evidence that God is blessing us. POTUS is expected to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capitol today.

“Pray for peace in Jerusalem. May all who love this city prosper.” Psalms 122:6 NLT

Of course, as is to be expected, “fake news” isn’t on holiday. This time media imps are trying to stir up a “feud” between newly engaged American actress Meghan Markle and her sister. Prince Harry has placed a “sparkle” on the “modern day Cinderella’s finger.” Up until now, Ms. Markle’s sister Samantha Grant has been sharing fond and sweet memories of Ms. Markle’s childhood. Now, those sweet dreams are becoming bitter, fanned by the ire seeking fake media. Ms. Markle’s ethnicity, evidence of the rising “One Blood/One Human Race sentiments sweeping the globe, adds spice to the conversation.

“No matter our skin color, we all bleed the same red blood…” President Donald John Trump

Let’s not miss out on the shameless fake news efforts to defame the much-needed tax cuts that are being ironed out in our Capitol. Families and businesses need a financial blessing this year!

As if all of this holiday intrigue wasn’t enough, the media sharks are still snapping at the heels of Senate candidate Roy Moore in Alabama. We can only imagine the magnitude of their frustration as the Judge keeps running ahead of the pack.

John 7:51 – “Does our law condemn a man without first hearing him to find out what he has been doing?

Finally, let’s consider that attempts at Agape Love can sometimes do more harm than good especially when cross-cultural situations without sufficient efforts to bring understanding of the local culture can cause resistance to change. At the end of the day, our goal should always be to Love, forgive and reconcile to our human brothers and sisters.

Enough for now. I’m off to Rome for work and maybe a little holiday cheer; with this song in my heart. MERRY CHRISTMAS!

In Our Nation’s Capital, 26-Week Abortion Scheduled No Medical Emergency or Fetal Anomaly

Thursday, November 30th, 2017

Priests_for_Life_banner

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Date: November 30, 2017

Contact: Leslie Palma
732-757-9087

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, released the following statement today from his Washington, DC office:

“Here in our nation’s Capital, as in cities from coast to coast, healthy babies of healthy mothers are being killed at stages where they can survive outside the womb, as our 12th undercover phone call, released today, reveals.

“With the collaboration of our colleagues at Abortion Free New Mexico, these phone calls show that someone can easily make an appointment to have an abortion late in pregnancy. This particular call resulted in an appointment for an abortion at over 26 weeks, and the clinic personnel treated it in a routine way.

“Even people who identify as pro-choice reject abortion at these late stages of pregnancy. As a Knights of Columbus/Marist poll last year revealed, almost six in ten Americans support the protection of babies in the womb after 20 weeks of pregnancy. This includes 56 percent of people who identify themselves as ‘pro-choice,’ and 49 percent of those who identify as Democrats.”

Tara Shaver of Abortion Free New Mexico added, “In our nation’s capital, late term abortions are being performed on viable babies through 26 weeks of pregnancy. Washington Surgi-Clinic is performing these abortions on healthy women carrying healthy babies with no questions asked. Now is the time for Congress to act swiftly to end this scourge of late term abortion.”

This and the previous eleven undercover calls, which show abortion appointments being made even at 32 weeks of pregnancy, can be heard at www.PriestsForLife.org/LateTermAbortion.

Citizens are urged to take action in two ways, first by spreading the links to these phone calls on social media, and second by contacting their U.S. Senators and urging them to vote for the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, S. 1922, which would protect children in the womb who can feel pain, hence preventing the abortions of those who are at 20 weeks of development or more.

Guidance on these action steps, and the opportunity to sign up for action alerts, is at www.StopAbortionNow.org.

We stand with you.

As the One Blood/One Human Race of Acts 17:26, we agree that repentance and forgiveness together are keys to the healing we all need. May God’s Word bring love, truth, redemption and light to Charlottesville and indeed our hurting world.

Abortion Clinic Schedules Appointment for Healthy Mother to Abort Healthy Baby at 32 Weeks

Priests for Life undercover calls continue to reveal what most Americans reject

TITUSVILLE, FL — As part of its late-term abortion education project, Priests for Life today released another undercover phone call showing that healthy mothers of healthy children can obtain a legal abortion in the United States even at 32 weeks of pregnancy.

“Our goal here is very simple: To reveal to the American people that healthy mothers are aborting healthy babies even in the final months of pregnancy, and that this is legal activity,” said National Director Father Frank Pavone. “We are revealing this because many of our fellow citizens simply do not know or do not believe this is happening. We show them the evidence. Knowing that it is happening is the first step towards stopping it.”

The call released today was made last week to the clinic of abortionist Warren Hern in Boulder, Colorado. Hern is the author of the medical textbook Abortion Practice, which uses the words “decapitate” and “dismember” to describe the abortion procedure.

The caller, posing as a woman at around 30 weeks of pregnancy, made no reference to any fetal anomalies or maternal health problems. She simply stated, “My husband and I just split up and I just don’t want to continue the pregnancy.”

The four-day abortion procedure was scheduled for Tuesday, Nov. 28, at which point the clinic pointed out she would be at 32 weeks of pregnancy.

The undercover call was carried out with the assistance of Abortion Free New Mexico. Tara Shaver, who represents that organization, said, “This undercover investigation reveals that Abortionist Warren Hern in Boulder, Colorado is willing to perform an abortion at 32 weeks of pregnancy for $25,000 with virtually no questions asked. Late-term abortions have no place in a civilized society, yet in America they are performed on healthy women carrying healthy babies all across this nation. This should be a wakeup call for Americans who refuse to believe that this is happening.”

The call was the eighth in a series of calls that Priests for Life will continue to commission across the nation. Previous calls were made to the Southwestern Women’s Options in Albuquerque, NM, where our callers successfully made abortion appointments at 25, 30, and even 33 weeks.

“Even people who identify as pro-choice reject abortion at these late stages of pregnancy,” Father Pavone said. “As a Knights of Columbus/Marist poll last year revealed, almost six in ten Americans support the protection of babies in the womb after 20 weeks of pregnancy. This includes 56 percent of people who identify themselves as ‘pro-choice,’ and 49 percent of those who identify as Democrats.

“In the light of these facts,” Father Pavone said, “we are urging all U.S. Senators to vote for the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act (S. 1622), to protect these children starting at 20 weeks of their development.”

For more information on the pending legislation, see www.StopAbortionNow.org. To learn more about Priests for Life, the largest anti-abortion ministry in the Catholic Church, visit www.ProLifeCentral.com.

Evangelist Alveda King noted in Influential Christian Roster while urging Prolife Votes for Alabama

Monday, November 20th, 2017

171120 blog image

Atlanta, GA. “Being included in the ‘Newsmax 100 Most Influential Evangelicals In America’ roster brings a new level of accountability to my lifelong journey of service to God and humanity,” said Evangelist Alveda King, Founder of Alveda King Ministries and Director of Civil Rights for The Unborn for Priests for Life.

The announcement reached King while she was “praying over the situation regarding the looming Alabama Senate race.” As a longtime prayerful supporter of Judge Roy Moore, King says she is “concerned that voters will be distracted by the media fury involving unsubstantiated accusations.

“While we must be ever mindful of the need to protect our women and children, we must also remain focused on the issues at hand because every vote counts in the race for life. In Alabama, Judge Moore stands for the sanctity of human life from the womb to the tomb. His opposing candidate Doug Jones who is an abortion advocate does not. Remember, Life is a Civil Right. In this election, and indeed in every election, as the One Blood Human Race of Acts 17:26, we must always vote our values, with life from the womb to the tomb as a priority.

“Jesus said: “Ye who are without sin, cast the first stone.” It’s important to remember, especially during the coming Thanksgiving and Christmas season that Christ’s lasting mission is to heal rather than condemn humanity. A divine insight: “Mercy overcomes judgment.”

“We are currently in a climate of playing the “blame game” while accusations are running rampant. As a woman, I appreciate the opportunities now available to women and indeed all victims of abuse to come forward to receive healing. However, in the process we must leave the doors open for repentance rather than fostering destruction across the board.

“In the case of Judge Roy Moore what is lacking for many is the certain confirmation that the accusations are true. On the other hand, the sincere testimonies of those who have known and supported Judge Moore through the years, mine included, far outnumber the current charges against him.

“Meanwhile, we must remember that we should never rush to judgment before the genuine facts and not opinions and fake news are considered. True justice demands that any judgment must be withheld until the real truth is revealed.

“If we fail to pursue these truths, we run the risk of creating and fostering a climate of further injustices for our unborn children and ourselves as well as further establishing a precedent for increasing unjust condemnation in the future.”

“Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.” Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Evangelist King, a niece of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., King is a former representative of the 28th District in the Georgia House, and a best-selling author, a minister, and frequent FOX News Channel and NEWSMAX contributor. In addition to these roles, she has served as an educator, entertainer, and legislator, and in her own words, she serves as a devoted “Guardian of The King Family Legacy.”
