Houston drops controversial pastor subpoenas

Eagle Cross and FlagHouston drops controversial pastor subpoenas

Houston Mayor Annise ParkerThe mayor of Houston announced Wednesday that the city will withdraw subpoenas of sermons from five pastors who publicly opposed an ordinance banning discrimination against gay and transgender residents, The Houston Chronicle reports.

“I didn’t do this to satisfy them,” Mayor Annise Parker said in reference to critics of the subpoenas. “I did it because it was not serving Houston.” SOURCE

Houston is a prime example of what happens when you have a city that is led by far left Liberals, homosexuals, lesbians, anti-American enemies of the state and other assorted vermin. Yes, I know, I could have just said *Democrats* but I felt like fully expressing myself.

The Houstonians that elected Parker are getting exactly what they voted for; an ignorant leftist that thinks she is above the law of the land.

Example; Amendment I of the United States Constitution.

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.

If these Churches and Pastors are preaching against homosexuality they are NOT violating the civil rights of any person nor are they depriving anyone of their civil rights. These Pastors are merely preaching the Bible, and let’s face it, that’s what Pastors do, it’s their job, and a Pastor is expected to speak the truth and the Word as it is written.

There are a number of passages in the Bible that refer to homosexuality and the idea that it is a wrongful practice, here are a few in case you didn’t know.

Leviticus 18:22 – You shall not lie with a male as with a woman; it is an abomination.

Leviticus 20:13 – If a man lies with a male as with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination; they shall surely be put to death; their blood is upon them.

1 Corinthians 6:9-10 – Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who practice homosexuality, nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.

Jude 1:7 – Just as Sodom and Gomorrah and the surrounding cities, which likewise indulged in sexual immorality and pursued unnatural desire, serve as an example by undergoing a punishment of eternal fire.

I am not a religious scholar, I’m not a particularly religious person, regardless, I know right from wrong and what Mayor Parker tried to pull off was a forced submission to her way of thinking and a forcing of the Pastors to turn away from the word of the Bible.

The controversy has touched a nerve among religious conservatives around the country, many of them already anxious about the rapid spread of gay rights and what it might mean for faith groups that object. Religious groups, including some that support civil rights protections for gays, have protested the subpoenas as a violation of religious freedom.

Parker, in typical hypocritical Democratic fashion, claims to be protecting the rights of others (homosexuals) while in turn depriving others (religious leaders) of their right to speak out and address this issue from the pulpit of their own church.   Continue reading

Voter Fraud or Elections Stupidity?

Eagle and Flag Lg EnhancedThis post started out as a comment on Alan Caruba’s blog, Warning Signs: Is America in Decline? and the more I thought about it, the more I typed and the more I typed the angrier I became but, that too is a good thing, you see, I always strive to tell the truth in my blogging but when I get angry and blog at the same time, the truth gets brutal.

The decline of America began many years ago, Obama and the Dems of today are merely a continuation of what America has been falling for since the end of WWII.

Did he say it or not? I have no idea, but the story goes that Joseph Stalin opined on voter fraud and irregularities long before this day and time when he supposedly said, “It’s not the people who vote that count. It’s the people who count the votes.”

We are hearing stories about GOP votes being flipped, electronically, to Dem candidates in Illinois and North Carolina. I saw one story from a FAR Left site saying that Dem votes were being flipped to GOP candidates here in Texas. Personally, I find that one very hard to believe; outside of Dallas, Harris, El Paso and Tarrant counties, there’s no need to flip anything, Texas is a GOP state and always will be.

But herein lies the problem; I am fully convinced that no matter how many voters get upset and vow to take the Dems out at the polls, it may not make ANY difference with the voter fraud that already appears to be surfacing.

A word of caution for voters; on Friday, 10-24-14 we went and did our early voting at the Rowlett City Hall Complex. I have been reading a lot of stories about voter fraud in various parts of the nation and this particular incident that I was personally involved in has been bugging me since last Friday.

Most of the Dallas County Elections people that we see here in Rowlett are OLD people, and I don’t say that to be MEAN or CRUEL. I’m almost 61 years old so when I say OLD people, I truly mean OLD.

So, I have my license and voters card, I hand them to the woman that checks people in, she checks one against the other and hands the card to another OLD woman so I can be signed in.

Now I don’t know how much this matters in the grand scheme of things but the woman filling out the short form happened to be an OLD Black woman, and I am sure this was merely a coincidence, I only point this out because it IS a part of the story.

She may have been a Democrat, she may have been stupid or decrepit, I don’t honestly know, but she couldn’t transpose my name from the card to the registration form and I kept coming up as *not in the system* and the system said that I was going to have to do a *provisional* vote.

I have been a Dallas County voter and local political activist for years now and needless to say, I was PISSED OFF … So, I watch her enter my info, and I mean watched closely as she makes 3 attempts in order to show me that it’s MY problem and NOT that of Dallas County Elections or the incompetence of their poll workers.

She enters: Witzel — Incorrect
Witwit — Incorrect

The 2016 election is closer than you think

Jeb Bush ‘moving forward’ on 2016 White House run

Jeb BushWASHINGTON (AP) — Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush is “moving forward” on a potential 2016 White House run and it appears more likely he will enter the Republican field, according to his son, who’s running for office in Texas.

George P. Bush told ABC’s “This Week” that his father is “still assessing” a presidential bid, but suggested it was more likely that he would seek the White House this time. The ex-governor declined to run for president in 2012 despite encouragement from Republicans.

“I think it’s more than likely that he’s giving this a serious thought and moving — and moving forward,” said the younger Bush, who is running for Texas land commissioner.

Asked if that meant it was “more than likely that he’ll run,” George P. Bush responded: “That he’ll run. If you had asked me a few years back … I would have said it was less likely.” SOURCE

I voted for, and supported Bush 41, I also voted for Bush 43, twice, but I had a lot of trouble convincing myself to do so, I held my nose and hit the button for the good of the nation.

When John McCain ran for POTUS I supported and voted for him even though I don’t much like him and had no use for his running mate, but I voted for what I thought was the best of the ticket and I voted to support the Party.

When Mitt Romney ran I again supported and voted for a candidate that I didn’t like in order to support the GOP and hopefully save the nation from the evil of the Democrats and Barack Hussein Obama.

As for me, I can’t support Jeb Bush, if he runs in the primaries I hope he gets his ass handed to him.

John McCain, Mitt Romney and Jeb Bush, is this all the GOP has? Of course I realize that any of them would be infinitely better at running the nation than Hillary Clinton, but seriously, is this ALL the GOP has to offer? Are these gentlemen the cream of the crop, the best and brightest that the GOP can field?

Jeb Bush, the brother of former President George W. Bush and the son of former President George H.W. Bush, would stand out in what could be a crowded Republican field in 2016.

A crowded GOP ticket for the primaries? Yes, I think it will be.

Here is a look at some predictions from Business Insider.

10. Mike Pence (previously 10): The Indiana governor is making just enough noise to stay on the list, keeping his vice presidential chances very much alive. Pence appeals to all wings of the party — no easy feat. Continue reading
