A friend recently asked me for my thoughts concerning camouflage. I didn’t ask why, however the request prompted me to pen my reflections.

In today’s world, things are not always as they seem or appear to be; this trend is increasing. That’s why transparency in a relationship or situation is becoming a premium commodity. Also, more and more, people are calling good evil and evil good, as in the case of defending the abortion or abuse of children as “consensual” or “a right to choose.” Horrendous!

Here’s the response to the request to consider the state of camouflage:

Camouflage is a human tactic which is most commonly recognized as a military tactic. Perhaps a Christian connotation of the concept can be found in this context:

“Stay alert. This is hazardous work I’m assigning you. You’re going to be like sheep running through a wolf pack, so don’t call attention to yourselves. Be as cunning as a snake, inoffensive as a dove.

“Don’t be naive. Some people will impugn your motives; others will smear your reputation—just because you believe in me [Jesus]. Don’t be upset when they haul you before the civil authorities. Without knowing it, they’ve done you—and me—a favor, given you a platform for preaching the kingdom news! And don’t worry about what you’ll say or how you’ll say it. The right words will be there; the Spirit of your Father will supply the words.” – Matthew 10:16-20 MSG

Truth Trumps Fake News: RISE UP with New Lenses

August 4th, 2017

ColorBlindAre you having a hard time stomaching today’s fake news and seemingly hopeless evil reports? Try this: “Overcome evil with good!”

I heard someone say recently: “The prince of the power of the air owns the media.” False! That’s just a title of a defeated foe. The power shifted ages ago with bloodshed on a hill; so today we have opportunities to flood the air waves and all frequencies as we “speak truth to power.”

In other words ladies and gentlemen, rather than bemoaning all of the bad reports and fake news, let’s drown it out; blast the atmosphere with 20/20 vision. Truth trumps evil every time.

During the past presidential election, the issues of “white privilege” and racism became hot topics. I remember saying during a news report on national television: If you are color blind, you need glasses.

Around the same time, some millennials posted a really creative video called White Privilege Glasses.

This week, another millennial sent me The Talk video.

Hey, something is breaking through here.

“… I will remove all your impurities. Then I will give you good judges again and wise counselors like you used to have… [You] will again be called the Home of Justice and the Faithful City.” – Isaiah 1:25-26 NLT

ConvergenceisImminentAnother example of converging patterns that are readily available for impact is occurring with the Rise Up energy. Right now the message is resonating while seemingly springing from opposite directions; with a song and from a prolife movement. As they collide, hope springs eternal.

When peripherals collide, convergence is imminent. Connect the dots. RISE Up!

One more for good measure:
A colleague shared this one.

Friends, we are living in a phenomenal time! In the midst of turmoil and upheaval – faith, hope and love are arising. Join the Movement. Trump fake news. Overcome evil with good. Use your voice, your platform, your bully pulpit to broadcast forgiveness, truth and love.

Pray for Repentance and Revival in America and around the world. Rise Up!

Fr. Pavone – Arkansas Cases Show Importance of Judicial Appointments

July 31st, 2017

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Date: July 31, 2017

NEW YORK – Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, today said that two court decisions on several Arkansas abortion laws illustrate the importance of judicial appointments.

“It’s not a coincidence that the federal judge who overturned Arkansas’s pro-life laws was appointed by President Obama and the federal appeals court judges who ruled against that jurist’s earlier abortion decision were appointed by President George W. Bush,” said Fr. Pavone. “Liberal presidents name liberal ideologues to the bench who interpret the law to match their agendas; conservative presidents are much more likely to nominate judges who interpret the law to mean what it says.”

President Trump has explicitly said his judges would be pro-life. We applaud him for that.”

A three-judge panel of the Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals has reversed a ruling of Judge Kristine Baker, an Obama appointee, declaring that Arkansas can enforce its law that establishes protections for women taking abortion pills. Shortly after that decision, Judge Baker issued injunctions barring the enforcement of four new Arkansas abortion laws passed this year, including measures to protect unborn children from dismemberment and sex-selection abortions.

Priests for Life is working across the country to pass and defend laws protecting babies from dismemberment.

“The Arkansas cases highlight one of the most important aspects of presidential elections, the naming of federal judges,” added Fr. Pavone. “Lifetime appointments to the bench have life-or-death consequences for our most vulnerable brothers and sisters.”

Thank you God: Strengthen President Trump

July 27th, 2017

Alveda receives pen from President Trump

“The ravages of abortion of our weakest, babes in the womb, as well as the sick, elderly and poor have led to a dearth of morality which includes gender confusion and a host of societal ills. As President Trump continues to drain the swamp, our prayers of gratitude to God remain steadfast as he continues to seek the best for all Americans. This includes his efforts to shore up our military and secure our borders.” – Evangelist Alveda King

Watch video: Evangelist Alveda King: “Thank you President Trump”

Transcript of video:

Evangelist Alveda King: “Thank you President Trump”

In light of recent developments in America and around the world with what appear to be cataclysmic shifts in the atmosphere, both natural and spiritual, I want to remind my readers and listeners to remain steadfast and focused. Continue to pray for those who are in authority that we can live a peaceful life. Certainly in the White House in America but in every home in America and around the world, let us continue to pray.

I want to personally thank President Donald Trump for remaining steadfast and focused. As we continue to pray for those who are in authority that we can live peaceful lives, let us hold on to that hope that even in these tumultuous times there is peace; it is a peace that passes all understanding.

Friends, continue to pray. Hold up that blood-stained banner. Pray for our president and all who are in authority in America and around the world.

God bless each and every one of you!

Evangelist Alveda C. King

What Do These “Celebrities” (Except Wonder Woman) Have in Common?

July 13th, 2017

Celebrities: You either have to love them, hate them, or not care one way or the other. One interesting truth about “celebrity” men and women is that abortions have affected many of them.

I’ve included Wonder Woman in the mix here because the anti-abortion and anti-life (prolife and pro abortion) feminists are both laying claim to the Wonder Woman mystique these days. Will the real super women please stand up?

I could also include photos of men celebrities, because some of them have post abortion testimonies as well. We’ll save that one for part two.

I’ve added a photo of myself from the 1970′s because I became post abortive in 1970 and was still hiding my pain in deep denial back then

Yes, even celebrities have abortions. All of the women in our meme (except Wonder Woman) have had abortions. Thank goodness people are talking more about abortions these days.

At Civil Rights for the Unborn we uncover the injustice of abortion. Abortion isn’t a civil right; it’s a crime against humanity. At Priests for Life, we work hard to end abortion. See Silent No More Awareness and Rachel’s Vineyard and find out why men and women truly regret our abortions.

Also, please read this compelling account about celebrity abortions by Kevin Burke, co-founder of Rachel’s Vineyard. Also read RECALL ABORTION by Priests for Life Executive Director, Janet Morana. After reading one or both please ask yourself these questions:

1. Why must a woman choose between health, safety and security or abortion?
2. How can taking an innocent life save a life?
3. Does the truth really matter?

“Have I now become your enemy because I am telling you the truth?” Galatians 4:16 NLT

Let’s pray for America to end abortion and return to God.

Fr. Pavone on Charlie Gard: Hospital, court should get out of the way

NEW YORK — Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, issued the following statement today regarding the latest developments in the Charlie Gard case.

“On Thursday, Baby Charlie Gard’s parents will have to prove to a court that an experimental medical treatment might help their son. This is outrageous,” Father Pavone said. “The decision on Charlie’s medical future should not be in the hands of a court. This is clearly an instance when parental rights must prevail.”

According to news reports, Charlie’s parents, Chris Gard and Connie Yates, have until tomorrow to provide evidence that an experimental treatment in the U.S. could be beneficial for their son.

Priests for Life has initiated an international prayer campaign, and we ask all to sign up for it at www.PrayerCampaign.org/Charlie.

Two Diametrically Opposed Videos

July 7th, 2017

“Don’t be misled—you cannot mock the justice of God. You will always reap what you sow.”
Galatians 6:7 NLT

Please review these 2 short videos.

1. Bless This House – I sing this song learned in my childhood when I visit pregnancy care centers across the country and around the world. The PCCs are the real providers of women’s health care; with no abortions, they often provide free pregnancy tests, free access and referrals to prolife doctors, life building skills, empowerment and much more. Watch “Alveda” on Vimeo or YouTube.

2. Faith Leaders Stand With Planned Parenthood – Never once do these people in this video admit that Planned Parenthood is America’s largest abortion provider and are thereby responsible for millions of legal abortions, which are crimes against the humanity of babies in the womb, as well as numerous reported and unreported botched abortions resulting in death and chronic illness to women. Abortion is the #1 Killer of human beings. However, they do mention providing free condoms, yet neglect to point out that easy access to condoms for minors often promotes blanket promiscuity. One can only wonder who is footing the bill for the pastors’ support?

Planned Parenthood Founder Margaret Sanger once said:
“The minister’s work is also important and also he should be trained, perhaps by the Federation as to our ideals and the goal that we hope to reach. We do not want word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population and the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members.”

Is Sanger’s Planned Parenthood promoting ads from anti-life ministers in an effort to hide her true motives—racial genocide? Obviously Sanger feared that if her belief were to spread that the goal of the Negro Project (that markets tubal ligation as well as vasectomies to unsuspecting Blacks) was to “exterminate the Negro population” it would hinder her true eugenic objective: the extermination of the subset of the black population that she considered “degenerate.”

3. Is the truth being withheld from the American people? Are women and minorities being sold a bill of goods regarding the truth behind abortion and harmful contraceptives? Are women being punished and maligned for choosing life? Are political leaders’ voices muted by a rabid abortion lobby? Are faith leaders on the side of truth or the lie that abortions and contraceptives are of God? Are we truly the one human race/one blood of Acts 17:26? You be the judge. Of course God is the final authority on the subject.

Fr. Pavone, Alveda King included in AFA Journal tribute to “40 Faithful”

July 6th, 2017

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Date: July 6, 2017

347-286-7277

NEW YORK — Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, and Evangelist Alveda King, director of Civil Rights for the Unborn for Priests for Life, are honored as two of the “40 Faithful” highlighted in the American Family Journal’s July-August 2017 edition.

The magazine, which will be available July 7 at www.afajournal.org, salutes Father Pavone for devoting his life to pro-life work since 1993, when he took the helm of Priests for Life.

“AFA is grounded in the biblical belief that human beings are created in the image of God, valuable and worthy of respect and dignity in all areas of life. … Father Pavone has been a prominent leader in communicating these principles,” the magazine states.

The magazine notes that Ms. King’s uncle, the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, and father, Rev. A.D. King, were both civil rights leaders who were murdered for “heroically standing for justice.”

“She has carried on their legacy in her fight for the unborn,” her profile states.

The new issue celebrates the 40th anniversary of the American Family Association, which was founded in 1979 by Don Wildmon and originally called the National Federation for Decency.

“AFA Journal staff decided to celebrate our fortieth anniversary by turning the spotlight not on ourselves but on 40 of you – true activists, men and women who have appeared on our pages over the years. … Simply men and women faithful to follow Christ, to be salt and light in the areas they’ve been called to address.”

Father Pavone called his inclusion among the “40 Faithful” a “tremendous honor.”
“I’m grateful to be included among others who work tirelessly to restore our nation to its founding principles of life and liberty for all, including the unborn,” Fr. Frank said. “We never do this kind of work alone, but rather with tremendous allies, among whom are Don Wildmon, Tim Wildmon and the whole team at the American Family Association. I salute them for their work and am proud to stand with them!”

Ms. King, joining in those sentiments, also said she was happy to see her father’s contributions to the civil rights movement recognized along with those of her uncle, Martin Luther King.

“The pro-life movement is the civil rights movement of the 21st century,” she said. “The right to life is our first and most fundamental right.”

Those interested in buying the print version of the magazine may contact Joy Lucius at jlucius@afa.net or 622-844-8888 ext. 294.

America’s Independence Should Be For Everyone

June 30th, 2017

170630 blog image

July 4, 1776 was a great day in American history; Independence Day! So historically July 4th is a day that is celebrated yearly with family get-togethers, cookouts, parades, watermelon, and fireworks. It was a great day but not for all!

While our nation was liberated from British rule in 1776 there was a class of people, slaves that didn’t enjoy independence along with other Americans until the signing of the Emancipation Proclamation in 1863. Slaves weren’t considered to be persons until then.
Actually, slaves only achieved partial personhood in 1787; and then only because slave owners wanted to use them in order to gain a greater voting power and thus they were counted as three-fifths of a person in the Three-Fifths Compromise. The slaves didn’t enjoy true independence until 1863; and finally on June 19, 1885 Juneteenth Independence Day; a day celebrated in some circles with the same hoopla as many enjoy the Fourth of July.

Another class of Americans, the women suffragettes, waged and in some cases still do wage the battle for equality. Unfortunately all too many still confuse women’s rights with human rights, and many pre-born persons are being discriminated against and killed as a result.

Yet, the celebrations for this year’s 4th of July will go on for most Americans. Still, although African-Americans and women will join in the celebrations, there are still segments of Americans who do not enjoy the same freedom as everyone else; they include pre-born persons and victims of human trafficking in America and around the world.

America can never be truly free until the babies in the womb are free to be born, and all victims of abortion and other crimes against humanity are set free.

In America the unborn are not considered “persons” under the law and therefore they don’t enjoy the protection of the Fourteenth Amendment assuring ‘Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness;” a right the babies could expect prior to the Supreme Court decision made in Roe v. Wade on January 22, 1973. Since that date over 60 million babies have not celebrated an Independence Day, have not joined in family celebrations, watched fireworks or a parade.

I dream and pray for a day when all Americans, born and unborn, can enjoy justice for all and independence for all; an “Independence Day from Roe v. Wade” is in order. Otherwise, how can the dream survive abortion?

One day our babies will be free. Until that day, please enjoy this Independence Day but also say a prayer for those that are unable to celebrate it with us. And please take a moment to say this prayer for Independence Day!
