New Women’s Health Video

Tuesday, December 11th, 2012

Hello friends, please check out my new video at www.africanamericanoutreach.com (on right of the page) on women’s health issues. Also check out the head of Planned Parenthood asking members of Congress to return to their eugenics roots HERE. Finally, please consider how Planned Parenthood mounted a very successful campaign during the elections as reported by the Washington Post. They are very bold in presenting their platforms. We should be so bold. Actually, we should be MORE BOLD!

A very good prolife friend recently observed that in 2012 “we were no match for the synergy created by a president, political party, and abortion groups working in tandem.” Let’s change the game. Watch out for 2013. THE GAME WILL BE ADVANCED!

Let’s be the real voice for women’s health in 2013! Janet Morana is working on a new book and you won’t want to miss this eye opener! Also, if you haven’t read LIFE AT ALL COSTS, put it on a serious to do list for early 2013.

African American Outreach Prayer

Friday, November 16th, 2012

ABBA Father, dear Creator God,

In your Word you command us to pray

For all who serve you in public office,

That we may lead peaceful lives.

We intercede for those in the offices of

President of the United States,

In the Congressional Black Caucus,

And in federal, state, county and local offices.

We ask for a new outpouring of your Spirit,

The Spirit of truth and life,

The Spirit of repentance and conversion,

The Spirit of courage and grace;

Let peace and love abound,

For ourselves and for those holding political offices.

May we be instruments of Your Holy Spirit

And witnesses of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

In which alone we find hope for our nation and the world.

We ask this in Jesus’ Name, Amen.

-Written by Father Frank Pavone and Dr. Alveda King

Ignoring African Americans’ and women‘s voices will not win elections.

Friday, November 9th, 2012

The Republican Party did not do justice to the appeals from African Americans and women who said, “Let our voices be heard during this election.” It seems that there was very little understanding that not knowing how to talk about rape and incest in cases of abortions and not looking at the women’s viewpoints did not help and then not including the African American’s voices in the election efforts did not help win the election.

The African American community reached out continually but there were no significant meetings between the national black pro-life community and the Party.

Also, there were many in the African American community who were concerned with the issue of natural marriage and our voices were not able to resonate with the Party.

And then you had the Senatorial or the Congressional candidates who were running for office and they were not able to articulate the woman’s viewpoint regarding rape and incest and the abortion issue and how abortion harms women.

Then too, the deaths of women including black women by abortion that should have been a factor or feature that should have caused women to take another look during this election cycle were overlooked.

So African Americans who were primed to not vote God’s way because if natural marriage were ignored. Many Christians regardless of ethnicity ended up in the same boat.

Obviously there is a serious disconnect or misconnect. Now what?

Where Do We Go From Here

Wednesday, November 7th, 2012

More deeply into the word of God!

While preaching one of his favorite sermons, “The Drum Major Instinct,” at Ebenezer Baptist Church, Atlanta, Georgia, on February 4, 1968, Martin Luther King, Jr. offered this prayer as an expression of his growing sense of Christian duty and accountability. He was under increasing pressure because of his statements against the Vietnam War, his attacks on the capitalistic system and ethic, and his efforts on behalf of the Memphis sanitation workers and the Poor People’s Campaign. King had exactly two months to live, and this sermon would ultimately be heard as his eulogy on April 9, 1968.

“On Your Right or Your Left Side”

Yes, Jesus, I want to be on your right or your left side, not for any selfish reason. I want to be on your right side or your left side, not in terms of some political kingdom or ambition. But I just want to be there in love and in justice and in truth and in commitment to others, so we can make of this old world a new world.

Psalm 23

A psalm of David.

The LORD is my shepherd, I lack nothing.
He makes me lie down in green pastures,
he leads me beside quiet waters,
he refreshes my soul.
He guides me along the right paths
for his name’s sake.
Even though I walk
through the darkest valley,
I will fear no evil,
for you are with me;
your rod and your staff,
they comfort me.

You prepare a table before me
in the presence of my enemies.
You anoint my head with oil;
my cup overflows.
Surely your goodness and love will follow me
all the days of my life,
and I will dwell in the house of the LORD
forever.

We Need Christians To Pray This Prayer Now Throughout America.

Tuesday, November 6th, 2012

•CORPORATE PRAYER : November 6th we pray as one voice…Don’t miss this powerful 5 minutes of praying exactly the same words. God Save and Bless America!

Father God, Lord and Master of all the earth, today we’re gathered together as one voice, one nation, and one family. We acknowledge you as the one and only God, that because of Jesus we gratefully can also honor and call our Father. Together we declare and receive your promise that “Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord.” We need your blessing Father, so please place your hand upon the heart of this country and your people and cause our hearts to beat in rhythm with your purpose. We speak with a loud and clear voice so the heavens will hear our praise and glory to the name that is above every name!

This is the day you have made, and it is to you we direct our attention, as we listen to your voice of wisdom. Today people all over this country are going to utilize the great freedom of choice given to each citizen by going to their respective polls where men and women will be selected to lead this great land. We are here raising our voices, letting you know that though there are multiple opinions about every candidate, there is only ONE that matters. We choose to stand with you Father. We choose what you choose…that the lives of the unborn are precious in your sight, that marriage is sacred between a husband and wife, that the poor and elderly, widows and orphans are dear to your heart and should not be trampled upon, that there is one God and only one, and upon this truth, our country, America, was established.

We ask that you illuminate the candidates that are most aligned with you. Bring them to the office that will best suit your purpose and use their gifts. And for the one that is to lead this great nation, let the one who will hold the most important position in the world, have a heart for you and your holy wisdom, given liberally to all who ask. May they grow in their faith each day they are in office. Cause them to walk in righteousness as they lead our country honorably and with integrity here at home and with those allies to whom we have allegiance. For righteousness exalts a nation.

You have called us the head and not the tail…the first and not the last, the people of your pasture, the flock under your care, the chosen generation! So please restore to us our FIRST love, helping us not to succumb to the temptations of this world in any choices that we make, but rather to walk with our heads held high because we belong to you and are the called according to your purpose! As we vote this day, may we vote with wisdom, conscience and love, according to your life and Word that is within us.

Let your kingdom come and your will be done on earth…in this country, in this election, and in us …as it is in heaven! For its all about your kingdom and your glory forever and ever. Now…Let heaven make a record of this prayer, prayed on this day at this hour by this people, offered in the mighty and perfect name of our Savior and King, Jesus. Amen

A Prayer For Our Nation As We Prepare To Elect Our Leaders (También En Español)

Monday, November 5th, 2012

O God, we acknowledge you today as Lord,
Not only of individuals, but of nations and governments.

We thank you for the privilege
Of being able to organize ourselves politically
And of knowing that political loyalty
Does not have to mean disloyalty to you.

We thank you for your law,
Which our Founding Fathers acknowledged
And recognized as higher than any human law.

We thank you for the opportunity that this election
year puts before us,
To exercise our solemn duty not only to vote,
But to influence countless others to vote,
And to vote correctly.

Lord, we pray that your people may be awakened.
Let them realize that while politics is not their salvation,
Their response to you requires that they be politically active.

Awaken your people to know that they are
not called to be a sect fleeing the world
But rather a community of faith renewing the world.

Awaken them that the same hands lifted up to you in prayer
Are the hands that pull the lever in the voting booth;
That the same eyes that read your Word
Are the eyes that read the names on the ballot,
And that they do not cease to be Christians
When they enter the voting booth.

Awaken your people to a commitment to justice
To the sanctity of marriage and the family,
To the dignity of each individual human life,
And to the truth that human rights begin when human lives begin,
And not one moment later.

Lord, we rejoice today
That we are citizens of your kingdom.

May that make us all the more committed
To being faithful citizens on earth.

We ask this through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

(En Español)

O, Dios

te damos gracias por el privilegio
De poder organizarnos políticamente
Y por reconocer que la lealtad política
No significa que seamos desleales a ti.

Te damos gracias por el privilegio
De poder organizarnos políticamente
Y por reconocer que la lealtad política
No significa que seamos desleales a ti.

Te damos gracias por tu ley,
La cual fue aceptada por los Padres de la Patria
Y reconocida como superior a cualquier ley humana.

Te damos las gracias por la oportunidad que este año de elecciones pone ante nosotros,
De ejercer el deber solemne no sólo de votar,
Sino de influenciar a un sinnúmero de personas para que voten,
Y para que voten correctamente.

Señor, pedimos que tu pueblo despierte.
Haz que se den cuenta de que aunque en la política no está su salvación,
Su respuesta a ti requiere que sean políticamente activos.

Alerta a tu pueblo para que sepa que no están llamados a ser una secta que huye del mundo,
Sino una comunidad de fe que renueva al mundo.

Hazles ver que las mismas manos que se elevan a ti en oración
Son las que halan la palanca en las urnas electorales al votar;
Que los mismos ojos que leen tu Palabra
Son los ojos que leen los nombres en la boletas electorales,
Y que no dejan de ser cristianos
Al entrar a votar en las urnas.

Dispón a tu pueblo a comprometerse con la justicia
Con la santidad del matrimonio y con la familia,
Con la dignidad de cada vida humana,
Y con la verdad de que los derechos humanos comienzan cuando comienza la vida humana,
Ni un minuto más tarde.

Señor, nos alegramos hoy
De ser ciudadanos de tu reino.
Que esto nos haga ser los más comprometidos
En ser ciudadanos fieles en la tierra.Te lo pedimos por Cristo nuestro Señor. Amén.

God Is Calling You To Be A Prophet For Life This Election!

Friday, November 2nd, 2012

Yes, YOU!

God placed you here at this moment for a reason. And I believe He did so because He wants YOU to tell all those you know that they have a grave moral obligation, not merely to vote …

… but to VOTE PRO-LIFE.

After all, if a politician can’t respect the life of a little baby, how can we expect him to respect ours?

Separation of Church and State – Amazing how many people don’t know…

Thursday, October 25th, 2012

Someone wrote to me on Facebook yesterday, saying that it is wrong for Christians to promote voting Biblical values because of the Separation of Church and State. The writer spoke of being offended because I was coming against the sanctity of Separation of Church and State by asking people to pray to God before voting, and vote God’s values. People think that the original intent of SOCAS was to keep God’s Church from ruling the government. Actually, the opposite is true. Separation of Church and State is intended to prevent exactly what the government is trying to do currently. The government is attempting to muzzle the voice of God’s people by punishing the right to freedom of speech and freedom of religion.

 

THE HISTORICAL TEST: THE JUDICIAL STANDARD EMERGING FROM COLONIAL POLITICAL AND RELIGIOUS HISTORY TO BE APPLIED TO CONSTITUTIONAL CHALLENGES BASED ON THE RELIGION CLAUSES OF THE FIRST AMENDMENT

The Law and Liberty Foundation gratefully acknowledges the author’s permission to use this Brief as part of the Foundation’s mission of “education in the public interest.” (Click on the author’s name above to read about her.) The popular idea of Separation of Church and State is one of the most intellectually dishonest, and legally indefensible ideas to ever come down the pike. John Sterling

Excerpt:

 

The current use of the “wall of separation” between church and state as a legal defense for the removal of the expression of American religious culture from governmental institutions and the prohibition of the free exercise of individuals working within them goes contrary not only to the original intent of the Founders and the Framers but also to the religious, political, and legal history and traditions of the United States of America. Courts, county school boards, teachers, and individuals, unwittingly devoid of the knowledge of the substantial role religion (primarily Protestant Christianity) played in the birth and formation of the United States are taking the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment beyond its scope: they are using it as a weapon against the free exercise of religion and abusing it by extending its interpretation beyond separating the jurisdiction of each institution. If the historical reasons or contentions for the separation of church and state were to be applied to the Establishment Clause as they were argued, it can be deduced that neither Congress nor any state legislature, after the incorporation of the First Amendment to the states, has never violated the clause, since there has never been a governmental declaration of a legally recognized national denomination or religion. The two jurisdictions have remained separate since the beginning. However, the presence of American religious culture within the public sphere has also been present since the birth of this country. Therefore, the “separation of church and state” can only be interpreted as the separation of jurisdiction of each institution and not the separation of the American religious culture from the public sphere.

 

Jefferson’s reply to them reassured that the “wall of separation” was a wall barring only the legislative body of government, the external entity, from establishing a particular sect of the Christian religion and prohibiting the free exercise of all religion. The text does not indicate that the people are barred from any action. Contrary to Kramnick and Moore’s view that “a wall of separation, after all, prevents trespassing in both directions,” [61] the First Amendment is only prohibiting one party from such trespass. A physical wall may prevent two parties from trespass, but a legal wall may prevent only one party from acting—much like an injunction—and that one party is the legislative branch, whether it is Parliament or Congress (emphasis added).

It is not difficult to deduce from historical revolutionary pamphlets and other documents that the consensus among the colonists and the consequent intent of the Framers was that government could not bestow special privileges to one Christian sect and deny them to others. Government could not legislatively establish one Christian sect over another in the same manner that the Church of England was the national church nor could government compel members of nonconformist religions to pay taxes to support a government-approved established religious institution. If one sect was endowed with special privileges, all should receive the same consideration. Furthermore, government could not bar anyone from public office because of the content of his or her religious convictions or lack thereof. The Establishment Clause of the First Amendment has already effectively accomplished all these goals, and participation in the republican form of government guarantees representation in the legislature to secure the equal treatment. Nothing in the Clause or in the historical record alludes to the prohibition of government funding of religion as long as it is available to all religions, even if one religion is in the majority within a particular community. Thus, the Dworkin “conception” within the Establishment Clause is very narrow. Its enlargement can occur only by ignoring colonial history.
