Heaven Is Our Destination Where We Will Be ONE With The Lord Forever

Today, we are in The Season Of The Last Generation. The Birth Pains that Christ Jesus spoke about are currently under way, including natural and unnatural disasters. They will be ever increasing. Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold. Social, economic and political turmoil will be ever increasing, causing people's hearts to be weighed down with dissipation, drunkenness and the anxieties of life. An apostasy within the Church of God is currently under way. This will all reach a climax with Satan revealing his Antichrist and requiring that everyone worship him; That every one receive his "mark" in order to buy or sell; The new currency of the New World Order, the New Tower of Babel.

Today, it is critical that those who have a heart for God are aware of what God is doing and speaking today. God is opening up His Word like never before in preparation for The Time Of The END. I exhort you to open up your heart and your eyes to see what He is doing and your ears to hear what God is speaking at this time. My prayer is that we will be able to stand before the Son of Man at His appearing, without fault and with great joy. I encourage you to read David Wilkerson's book, America's Last Call at davidwilkersontoday.blogspot.com. Also, Google, Tommy Hicks Prophecy, 1961 for a view of the End Times.

Tom's books include: Called By Christ To Be ONE, The Time Of The END, The Season Of The Last Generation, Worship God In Spirit And In Truth, Daniel And The Time Of The END, and Overcoming The Evil One.

THE FEAR MANAGERS HAVE SNARED OUR YOUTH

GREAT AGAIN?

THE FEAR MANAGERS HAVE SNARED OUR YOUTH

Exclusive: Mason Weaver says today's young adults have 'no hope, courage or ambition'

Why are Americans so afraid? 
Our civilization has been under tremendous pressure to be cautious and afraid of everything. 
We are afraid of the weather, meteors, fires and flooding. We are afraid of each other, conflict and controversy. We are looking for safe spaces, safe working environments and safety from opposing points of views.
We have allowed our schools, entertainment industry, social commentaries, political movements and peer leaders to frighten us about our abilities and intentions. 
We can’t build a wall because it is racist. 
We cannot defeat China in a trade war because we cannot afford to pay a penny more for a can of soup. 
We cannot fight terrorists because it will make the terrorists mad at us. 
Everything is frightening to the American youth.
We have allowed our children to believe that they are just a product of their mother’s choice, the air is dirty, no jobs are available, the rich hate them, capitalism is negative, and our country is weak.
So here we sit with a crop of young adults with no hope, courage or ambition. 
They are full of doubt, fear and dread. They are in debt, think they are special, don’t want a car or home and believe they are entitled to other people’s money. This past week I have been speaking with this new young-adult group and want to report that we have a lot of work to do.
First, we must stop allowing public education to have free access to our children. 
They are not learning the Constitution, American values and the importance of our culture. We must engage our children with our point of view, teach them that our opinions are of greater value than the teachers’ and must correct and inspect what is being taught to them.
Second, we must stop the propaganda from the media constantly telling us how dangerous our values are. We are not polluting the planet, we are not changing the weather, and we do not believe that science has the answers to our problems.
Every attempt to bring America back to greatness is met with resistance through fear. 
In spite of the great economy on every level – unemployment, consumer confidence, wages, new business start-ups, housing and savings – the fear managers constantly tell of the doom and gloom of returning to greatness.
So we are told that China must continue to rip off America because they are so powerful. We are told that they are too strong to fight in a tariff war and that we will lose. But as soon as we started just talking about that war, China asked to negotiate. China knows they cannot withstand a trade war with the strongest economy in the world. But Americans are afraid of China!
We were told that TTP, NAFTA and the wall would be to hard for us. 
Mexico will not cooperate, and we will have a hit on our economy. But Trump just hinted at TTP and NAFTA being connected with that caravan of 1,500 illegal invaders from Guatemala, and all of the sudden the invasion was split up and mostly disbanded.
Then Trump heard of the Syrian attacks on their own citizens with gas and chemicals. We were told to be afraid of their Russian comrades. We were told that they are too strong, the Russians promised to shoot down our missiles, and that Syria was not frighten of any American response.
Turns out that great Russian military was only effective when bullying small, nearly defenseless countries like Ukraine. Trump put together a coalition with France and Britain and began the dismantling of Syrian chemical weapon capacity. Not only was the great feared Russian army ineffective, but we destroyed their Syrian allies standing right next to them, in their presence and without regard of their capabilities.
Can you even imagine a country bombing our allies while American troops stood nearby? Can you get your mind around Russia bombing Turkey with the U.S. Air Force in Turkey watching it? Russia stood down because it was not worth defending Syria. America is both feared and respected because we are both capable and determined.
Trump has since considered more sanctions on Russia, and we continue to push them around in the Middle East. Have you noticed that none of these countries ever “boycott” America? Trump is adding more boycotts to Russia over its use of poisonous gas on Russian spies in Britain and their support of Syria using chemical weapons. Why is there no country putting serious boycotts on America? Because we are the greatest and the marketplace for the world.
Understand this is our strength and is also the target of our enemies, both foreign and domestic. 
Making America great again cannot happen with a frightened America. 
Some of us think of ourselves as slaves. “It’s OK to Leave the Plantation” is not only the title of my book. It is also the message to our youth. 
You cannot win a war if you are afraid to lose a battle.
Being frightened brings appeasement, and appeasements has brought us every war we have ever been in. We appeased the king of England until we had the Revolution; we appeased the South until the Civil War; we appeased Germany until we had World War I and II; we tried appeasing North Korea and Iran, but history has already told us what is coming. Appeasement allows our enemies time to grow stronger and adds to the price our youth must eventually pay to defeat them.
After World War II, Gen. Patton requested, “Allow me to fight the Russians while we still have an army in Europe.” It took an entire generation of suffering before Eastern Europe was freed when President Reagan showed up and stopped the appeasement. 
We win when we show up.

HOW JAMES CLAPPER FRAMED TRUMP

 - The Washington Times - Friday, April 20, 2018
It was James Clapper, then the nation’s top intelligence official, who insisted that President-elect Donald Trump receive a briefing on the Moscow prostitute tale contained in the Democratic Party-financed dossier.
The disclosure comes in FBI Director James B. Comey’s private memos released on Thursday. The Clapper angle adds another fact to the now-infamous one-on-one meeting between Mr. Comey and Mr. Trump on Jan. 6, 2017 at Trump Tower.
In his book, a “Higher Loyalty,” Mr. Comey presents the briefing decision as a collective one between himself, Mr. Clapper and other intelligence officials.
In a memo written immediately after leaving Mr. TrumpMr. Comey wrote, “I said there was something that Clapper wanted me to speak to the PE [president elect] about alone.”
The briefing had far-reaching ramifications. 
Leaked to CNN, the session became fodder to legitimize the dossier as a credible news story since Mr. Comey warned the president the gossip about him and prostitutes in Moscow in 2013 came right from the Kremlin.
Today, Republicans charge that it was Mr. Clapper, then Director of National Intelligence, who leaked the story to CNN. 
He works for CNN as an on-air analyst and is one of the president’s most strident critics. He has likened Mr. Trump to an agent of Russian President Vladimir Putin.
The final March 22 Russia report from the Republican majority on the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence said Mr. Clapper “provided inconsistent testimony to the committee about his contacts with the media, including CNN.”
Mr. Clapper said on CNN that he wasn’t the leaker and did not talk to reporters until he retired.
Republicans and the White House have faulted Mr. Comey for what they consider a lie of omission.
By January 2017, the FBI knew that the dossier was in fact a piece of opposition research paid for by the Democratic National Committee and the Hilary Clinton campaign. The money went from the investigative firm Fusion GPS to ex-British spy Christopher Steele, who hired a middleman to glean information from Kremlin officials.
Mr. Steele wrote 35 pages of memos from June 2016 to December 2016 and fed them to Fusion and to the FBI. 
He was “desperate” to destroy the Trump campaign, he told a Justice Department official whose wife worked for Fusion’s anti-Trump project.
But none of this was disclosed by Mr. Comey to the president-elect. He presented the storyline as mere information from Moscow that had not been proven.
Asked by ABC News on his book tour why he did not provide full disclosure, Mr. Comey said that was not his goal that day.
As Mr. Comey met with the president-elect for the first time, the FBI had become immersed in the dossier. The bureau greatly relied on it to conduct a year’s worth of court-approved surveillance on Trump campaign volunteer Carter Page, who has not been charged.
Rep. Devin Nunes, California Republican and House Intelligence chairman, accuses the FBI of abusing the warrant process by failing to tell the judge the allegations on Mr. Page came from a man on the payroll of the other party.
In his book, Mr. Comey said he had an obligation to protect the president by telling him the Russians may possess dirt they could use against him. Mr. Trump denied the episode ever happened on his trip to stage the Miss Universe pageant, which he jointly owned with NBC.
Mr. Comey and his colleagues first briefed President Obama. It was Mr. Clapper who took the lead in explaining the issue to Mr. Obama.
“With just the briefest of sidelong glances at me, Clapper took a breath, then said, ‘We have decided that Director Comey will meet alone with the president-elect to brief him on this material following the completion of the full ICA briefing,’” Mr. Comey wrote in “A Higher Loyalty.”
Again, the Comey memos, obtained by the Associated Press, specifically said it was Mr. Clapper who wanted Mr. Trump briefed.
Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Charles Grassley, Iowa Republican, 
has suggested the entire Trump Tower episode was a setup to engineer a damaging leak to the media. He has asked Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz to investigate.
Mr. Comey’s thoughts as he prepared to visit Trump Tower:
“I long ago learned that people tend to assume that you act and think the way they would in a similar situation,” his memoir says. “They project their worldview onto you, even if you see the world very differently. There was a real chance that Donald Trump, politician and hardball deal-maker, would assume I was dangling the prostitute thing over him to jam him, to gain leverage. He might well assume I was pulling a J. Edgar Hoover, because that’s what Hoover would do in my shoes. An eyebrow raise didn’t quite do this situation justice; it was really going to suck.”
https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2018/apr/20/james-clapper-insisted-trump-receive-prostitute-br/?
My comments: The Entire Obama Administration was and is CORRUPT. It remains to be seen who among them, is rightfully Indicted and Prosecuted.

'BLUE WAVE'? BLAME THUMB-SUCKING REPUBLICANS

ELECTION 2018

'BLUE WAVE'? BLAME THUMB-SUCKING REPUBLICANS

Laura Hollis: It's GOP's self-destruction that made Trump's meteoric rise inevitable

For months, the American press, aghast at Donald Trump’s presidency, has been predicting a “blue wave” – voters sweeping Republicans out office and instead electing a massive number of Democrats.
There’s no question Democrats and progressives despise Trump and are motivated to vote. 
But the left-wing, progressive media engages in what I call “progpaganda” – the promotion of things they want to be true, endeavoring to shape events, and not merely report on them. 
This is the same group predicting with “99 percent certainty” that Hillary Clinton was going to win the White House.
American voters appear to have gotten wise to the press’ efforts. 
But for some inscrutable reason, Republican politicians haven’t. Thus, true to form, the GOP is running with their tails tucked between their legs in an effort to escape the political tsunami that probably wouldn’t occur if they didn’t create it themselves. This year has an unusually high number of congressional Republicans retiring – at last count, more than 40 – including Speaker of the House Paul Ryan, who won his last election by nearly 35 percentage points.
The buzz is that those retiring see the writing on the wall and are getting out while the getting’s good. 
(Vox put it bluntly: “Republicans are screwed.”) Some even speculate that establishment Republicans (who loathe Trump as much as the Democrats) are willing to lose Congress to thwart Trump and make a point.
Talk about cutting off your nose to spite your face.
Jennifer Rubin, a conservative writer for the Washington Post, explained in an interview with Politico that, having left the Republican Party, she does not see herself ever going back. 
Rubin – and plenty of others on the right – blame Trump for the GOP’s implosion.
They have it exactly backwards. It is the GOP’s self-destruction that made Trump’s meteoric rise not only possible, but inevitable. The roots of Trump’s triumph can be seen in the “shellacking” voters gave Democrats in 2010, when they handed Republicans control of the House, and again in 2014 when Republicans took control of the Senate.
Then, as now, the GOP listened to the press, but not the people.
Republican and other conservative voters have been begging the GOP to represent their interests in Congress – to no avail. The people want reduced taxation, simplified regulation and – critically – enforcement of our immigration laws. 
(Trump’s popular bluster notwithstanding, we don’t really need a wall on our southern border; we need to enforce the laws we have on the books.) 
They want an end to interminable foreign wars and to international agreements that penalize American companies and American workers.
How hard is any of this to understand?
When the GOP took control of the House in 2010, they told voters they couldn’t do anything without the Senate. When voters gave them the Senate in 2014, the GOP complained that anything they passed would be vetoed by President Obama, a Democrat. 
In 2016, voters gave the GOP-controlled Congress a Republican president who would sign any remotely conservative legislation they sent across his desk – whereupon Congress proceeded to do nearly nothing legislatively, save for a tax overhaul.
It’s almost as if, lacking any further excuses for political inertia, Republicans have thrown up their hands and are running for the exits. The predicted “blue wave” isn’t the explanation. It isn’t even their excuse. It’s their reprieve.
Republicans who blame Trump for their current circumstances are fools or blinkered cowards. 
Trump is only in the White House because the public got fed up with the GOP’s ambivalence, incompetence and incessant capitulation to a perennially hostile (and often frankly deceitful) media.
Compare the press’ coverage of Mitt Romney in the 2012 presidential election with their complaints about Trump in 2016. 
Romney is steadfast, honorable, truthful, moral, faithful to his wife, dignified, polite and respectful to his political opponents. 
The press characterized him as evil incarnate; a soulless, grasping robber baron willing to see widows and orphans die to advance his fortune. 
In 2016, they suddenly purported to care about honor, dignity and “statesmanship.”
Had Republicans displayed the courage of their convictions in the years leading up to 2016, instead of sucking their thumbs every time the press lied about them, voters would have had much greater confidence in the other GOP presidential candidates. As it was, having been sold down the river too many times, 
voters picked an outsider who clearly could stand up to the press and the left.
Those who bemoan the rise of populist politicians like Trump and the loss of the “political center” bring to mind “Slouching Towards Bethlehem,” a song written by Joni Mitchell (and based upon the poem, “The Second Coming,” by William Butler Yeats). Mitchell writes:
Things fall apart
The center cannot hold
And a blood-dimmed tide
Is loosed upon the world …
The best lack conviction
Given some time to think
And the worst are full of passion
Without mercy
When the best among us – our leaders – lack conviction, what arises in their place is often the product of frustration and resentment. From there, it is backlash after backlash.
The predicted “blue wave” may take place. If it does, it’s worth asking what America will look like if progressives get control of the government. 
Because they will not suffer from the timidity and self-abasement Republicans have shown.

My comments: If the "blue wave" occurs America will continue the Devastating Path to RUIN, Obama started.

JOIN THE 'SEX ED SIT OUT'

KINSEY'S FRAUD

JOIN THE 'SEX ED SIT OUT'

Exclusive: Judith Reisman, Ph.D., on child-abusing foundation of schools' curriculum

“Sex Ed Sit-Out” planned for Monday, April 23, has grown into a worldwide initiative in scores of major U.S. cities, Vancouver, British Columbia, and Mulgrave, Australia. 
Thanks to social media, parents are finally learning that teachers, K-12, have been freely showing their children LGBTQ text, film and pictorial pornography they define as “sex education.”
“Most parents do not know this is taking place in schools,” says Elizabeth Johnston, the “Activist Mommy,” a social media star and principle organizer of the protest. For decades school principals parroted the leftist mantra claiming, “Why, no one else has complained.”
Protests are planned for Charlotte, North Carolina, and a dozen other cities, including Decorah, Iowa; Austin and San Antonio, Texas; Spokane, Washington; Garden Grove and Sacramento, California; Martinsburg, West Virginia; and Bloomington, Indiana.
On that date, mothers and fathers will remove their children from public schools and gather at strategic locations as part of the “Sex Ed Sit Out,” aimed at educating parents about the harmful, anxiety-inducing, pornographic materials forced on their children. 
One event is scheduled for Indiana University, home of the Kinsey Institute, named for the “father” of the Sexual Revolution and arguably the LGBTQ movement. 
whose hand-picked, sexually deviant followers continue to direct culture, especially schooling, more than 70 years after his death.
Kinsey launched LGBTQ Justice Warriors with “data” claiming 10 to 47 percent of males had homosexual sex. 
The Kinsey Scale instantiated orientation as “fluid.” 
Thus, the 1973 American Psychiatric Association’s decision to consider being gay as normal, the legalizing of sodomy in 2003 and allowing both sodomies since to be taught in K-12 public school.
An April 5 report, “Here’s how men have been misled about their penis size for decades,” blames Kinsey for decades of male shame, even suicidal ideation, for claiming “the average penis size is 6.21 inches in length and 4.85 inches in girth,” deluding men into viewing themselves as inadequate. 
Kinsey would have known what he was doing as he often pridefully, publicly displayed his large phallus. This was one consistent fraud published in “Sexual Behavior in the Human Male” (1948). His “research” leading to generations of male trauma is only one example of the toxic fallout of Kinsey’s male book (1948) and female book (1953), 
Kinsey’s most toxic “data” were those on children, 2 months of age to 14 years old, subjects of around-the-clock sex abuse experiments. 
The “Children of Table 34” film shows tables 30 through 34 in Kinsey’s 1948 book, unchallenged. 
No one asked where he got hundreds if not thousands of children and infants, to masturbate, orally and manually manipulate, and penetrate. 
No one asked when Kinsey described a child’s “orgasm” as screaming, fainting, crying, convulsing, sadomasochistic reactions, striking the “partner” who was raping them, etc. Kinsey, a pedophile, ignorant of normal sexual intimacy He saw it as such.
Relying on sadistic child sex crimes, our laws on human sexuality were changed; once-criminal offenses were weakened or eliminated. 
The phony Kinsey scale, like his fraudulent penis size claims, meant schools must provide sex “education,” since Kinsey’s “data” found “children are sexual from birth.” 
Over parental objections, in 1958 schools screened graphic cartoon sexual films to inner city children, and from there to the larger society.
Planned pedophile grooming is implicit in the current brain-changing school sexual exploitation.
“Gay liberationists in general, and boy-lovers in particular, should know Kinsey’s work and hold it dear. … implicit in Kinsey is the struggle we fight today.” [North American Man/Boy Love Association, 1981, at 96.]
Activist groups such as SIECUS (launched at the Kinsey Institute) and Planned Parenthood became professional sex organizations, to train teachers in the new sexuality. 
Step by step, these early Sexual Justice Warriors worked toward the illusion that deviance is normal and normality is deviant. 
Hence from normalizing homosexuality/sodomy activists progress to seeing toddlers as nascent transgenders. 
The pharmaceutical companies make a fortune from our children, our sexual sicknesses and brokenness.
We seem to be at the beginning of change, of a logical return to normality. 
It is possible, once people understand what was done to them, by whom and why. 
The time has come to take back our lives, our nation and our future. I am proud to still be around to see this happen.
Signatures are needed for the “Stop the Kinsey Institute” website
Watch my YouTube interviews, visit my website, Twitter and read my many books about Kinsey and the pornography revolution, led by Hugh Hefner, Kinsey’s “pamphleteer.” 
Also if you’re in law, read my articles written with attorney Mary McAlister of Liberty Counsel and our many articles in WND, Salvo and various other publications.

My comments: Public Education must be taken away from the LEFT, if America is to have any Future. Currently, the LEFT is Indoctrinating America's Children into their godless Socialist, Secular Humanist Religion. This spells the Doom of America, before the Living God.

WEAK IN BODY, STRONG IN SPIRIT: PREACHING WHILE DYING

WEAK IN BODY, STRONG IN SPIRIT: PREACHING WHILE DYING

Bill Federer recounts indomitable spirit of missionary David Brainerd

Born in Haddam, Connecticut, April 20, 1718, his parents died while he was a young teenager. He attempted farming, but on July 12, 1739, he had an experience with God of “unspeakable glory” that gave him a “hearty desire to exalt Him, to set Him on the throne and to ‘seek first His Kingdom.'”
This was colonial Indian missionary, David Brainerd.
A Connecticut law forbade the appointment of ministers unless they graduated from Harvard, Yale or a European institution, so in 1740, David Brainerd began attending Yale. He soon began to show symptoms of tuberculosis.
When Great Awakening preachers George Whitefield, Gilbert Tennent, Ebenezer Pemberton and James Davenport began spreading spiritual enthusiasm, tension emerged at Yale between faculty and students. 
In 1741, Yale trustees decreed that “if any student of this College shall … say, that the Rector … Trustees or tutors are hypocrites, carnal or unconverted men, he shall for the first offense make a public confession in the hall, and for the second offense be expelled.”
Accused of having said his tutor, Chauncey Whittelsey, “has no more grace than a chair,” David Brainerd was expelled.
In 1742, David Brainerd was licensed to preach by evangelicals known as “New Lights.” He was supported by the “Society in Scotland for Propagating Christian Knowledge” to do missionary work among Native Americans.
David Brainerd worked in a Housatonic Indian settlement near present day Nassau, New York, starting a school for Native American children. He worked among the Delaware Indians along the Delaware River northeast of Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. His interpreter, Moses Tunda Tatamy, helped him minister to Indians along the Susquehanna and Delaware Rivers.
Camping at night, David Brainerd wrote in his journal: “Forks of Delaware, Pennsylvania, Lord’s day, July 21, 1745. Preached to the Indians. … Divine truth seemed to make very considerable impressions and caused the tears to flow freely. … Afterwards I baptized my interpreter and his wife, who were the first I baptized among the Indians. … Though before he had been a hard drinker … it is now more than six months since he experienced this change; in which space of time he has been exposed to strong drink in places where it has been moving free as water; yet has never desired after it. … He discourses feelingly of the conflicts and consolations of a real Christian.”
David Brainerd worked with the Crossweeksung Indians in New Jersey, starting a church which grew to 130 members. David Brainerd wrote in his diary: “(I) could have no freedom in the thought of any other circumstances or business in life: All my desire was the conversion of the heathen, and all my hope was in God: God does not suffer me to please or comfort myself with hopes of seeing friends, returning to my dear acquaintance, and enjoying worldly comforts.”
David Brainerd traveled over 3,000 on horseback in his missionary efforts and often slept in cold, rainy woods. Overcoming lack of food, and spitting up blood from advanced stages of tuberculosis, David Brainerd fought immobilizing depression where dozens of times he wished for death.
Finally too ill to minister, he was taken in by Princeton president Jonathan Edwards, who wrote down his life story. David Brainerd died at the age of 29.
In 1749, Jonathan Edwards published “An Account of the Life of the Late Reverend Mr. David Brainerd,” which inspired millions, including William Carey, Adoniram Judson, Oswald J. Smith, and John Wesley, who wrote: “What can be done to revive the work of God where it is decayed? Let every preacher read carefully over the life of David Brainerd.”
David Brainerd’s life played a role in establishing the colleges of Princeton and Dartmouth. Yale’s Divinity School named a building “Brainerd Hall,” the only building named after a student who had been expelled.
David Brainerd wrote: “Oh, how precious is time, and how it pains me to see it slide away, while I do so little to any good purpose. Oh, that God would make me more fruitful.”

NEW JERSEY SUPREME COURT: CHURCHES INELIGIBLE FOR RENOVATION GRANTS


 - The Washington Times - Wednesday, April 18, 2018
The New Jersey Supreme Court unanimously ruled Wednesday that it’s a violation of the state constitution to award historic preservation grants to houses of worship.
The 7-0 decision reversed a lower court ruling that said church involvement in the program was permissible because the government used “neutral criteria” to determine grant recipients.
Diana Verm, an attorney for the nonprofit Becket Fund for Religious Liberty, which filed an amicus brief in the case, said Wednesday’s ruling goes against last year’s Trinity Lutheran v. Comer decision, in which the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that states can’t bar religious institutions from participating in government aid programs.
“The Court’s decision today leaves churches out in the cold and denies the many important contributions they have made to our nation’s history and culture,” Ms. Verm said in a statement. “Denying widely available historic preservation grants to churches simply because they are churches departs from the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling last summer in Trinity Lutheran that the Constitution prohibits governments from discriminating against religious organizations.”
New Jersey voters in Morris County approved the Historic Preservation Trust Fund in 2002. From 2012 to 2015, the County Freeholder Board approved more than $11.1 million in grants, $4.6 million of which went to repair and restore historic churches.
Grant applications were limited to four entities: the Morris County government, municipal governments in Morris County, charitable groups involved with historic preservation and religious institutions.
Writing for the court majority, Chief Justice Stuart Rabner ruled the program violates the Religious Aid Clause of the New Jersey Constitution.
“The Churches are not being denied grant funds because they are religious institutions; they are being denied public funds because of what they plan to do—and in many cases have done: use public funds to repair church buildings so that religious worship services can be held there,” Chief Justice Rabner wrote.
“Those grants constitute an impermissible religious use of public funds.”
The Religious Aid Clause states that no one shall be “obliged to pay tithes, taxes, or other rates for building or repairing any church or churches, place or places of worship, or for the maintenance of any minister or ministry, contrary to what he believes to be right or has deliberately and voluntarily engaged to perform.”

Citing the First Amendment and the Trinity Lutheran decision, Justice Lee Solomon argued in a concurring opinion that the Religious Aid Clause cannot “categorically bar churches” from receiving funds that promote “a substantial government purpose, such as historic preservation.”
The Morris County program would have been constitutional had it been applied “in a fundamentally neutral manner,” Justice Solomon wrote.
Churches that already had received grants will not be forced to repay the funds.
The Freedom From Religion Foundation, a secular group based in Madison, Wisconsin, filed a lawsuit in 2015 to prevent Morris County from using taxpayer dollars to maintain historic houses of worship.
Andrew L. Siedel, a constitutional attorney for the atheist group, said the decision is a “not just a win for secular citizens, but for every New Jersey taxpayer.”
“Governments in New Jersey cannot force Muslims to bankroll temples and yeshivas, compel Jews to subsidize Christian churches and Catholic schools, force Christians to fund mosques and madrassas, or nonbelievers to support any religion,” Mr. Siedel said in a statement. “It’s a win for all.”
Other secular groups also praised Wednesday’s decision.
“This a big win for the religious freedom of state taxpayers, who shouldn’t have to foot the bill for church construction and religious worship services,” Daniel Mach, director of the Program on Freedom of Religion and Belief at the American Civil Liberties Union, said in a statement.

My comments: So, the War against Christianity in America goes on. Secular Judges and Courts denying the Fundamental place of Christianity in the Foundation of America and American history. An Historic building, should have to do with its age and prominence in the Community in which it exists, not whether it continues to perform a Religious function.  

SCHOOLS IN 43 STATES BLASTED FOR PORN CURRICULUM

WND EXCLUSIVE

SCHOOLS IN 43 STATES BLASTED FOR PORN CURRICULUM

Parents press for laws to ban 'harmful' material


Bob Unruh
The use in public-school health classes of material regarding sexuality that many parents considering objectionable, and some even classify as pornography, long has been reported by WND.
A recent commentary by Linda Harvey addressed the issue: “Let’s be frank about school sex education. Many classes have become unapologetically pornographic, yet many parents are unaware their kids learn dangerous messages laced with obscenity in the guise of ‘health education.'”
Now a campaign launched by the non-profit legal group Liberty Counsel is rallying parents against laws in 43 states that effectively protect porn in some educational settings.
“Before today’s kindergarteners graduate from high school, around 4.5 million students in America will experience sexual abuse at the hands of a school employee,” the organization said Thursday in announcing its campaign.
“Liberty Counsel discovered that the laws in 43 states have exemptions from obscenity laws that permit sexually explicit materials in schools that can facilitate this kind of misbehavior. These laws protect school employees who provide students with pornographic materials from criminal prosecution under the guise that the materials are ‘educational,'” the group said.
“It is ridiculous to claim that legally harmful, pornographic material magically becomes innocent because the person providing it changed jobs,” said Mat Staver, founder of Liberty Counsel. “It is time to hold our teachers and coaches to the same legal standards as all other adults. From Hollywood to hometown America, children deserve to be protected from harmful materials, grooming and rape.”
Liberty Counsel said sexually explicit materials in schools presented by teachers “exacerbates the problem by creating a sexually charged environment.”
“Currently, teachers are in a position of authority, with nearly complete freedom to discuss everything with young children, including erotic topics. Sexual predators can use teaching as an avenue to groom their intended target, or even entire classrooms all at once, while being protected by this loophole.”
A study cited by Liberty Counsel found school workers abuse one in 10 students, and only about six of 1,000 rapists actually go to jail.
“Educational obscenity exemptions are but one example of the toxic legacy of Dr. Alfred Kinsey and his claim that children are sexual from birth and unharmed by sexual activity,” explained Mary E. McAlister, senior litigation counsel for Liberty Counsel, who has been researching the exemptions and bringing their toxic history to light.
“That claim, borne out of records of systematic child sexual abuse, was used as a basis for wholesale revision of our criminal laws through the Model Penal Code, of which the educational obscenity exemptions are a part,” McAlister said.
While she described the damage from Kinsey as “immeasurable,” it can be brought to a halt by repealing provisions that protect porn.
“Another fact sheet shows that these teachers were usually transferred to three different schools before being reported to the police. A Government Accountability Office studying school employee sex offenders found that child molesters could have ‘even thousands of victims, sometimes without ever being caught,’ according to a studying of 232 child predators, who had 17,000 victims,” Liberty Counsel said.
The circumstances have been created, the report said, by, among other influences, National Education Association standards that demand sex education for students starting in kindergarten and “mandates exposing them to homosexuality as ‘different kinds of family structures,'” it said.
“Students are taught oral and anal sex, how to masturbate one another, how to comparison shop for condoms and to question their gender. 
That curriculum teaches and tests them on how to visit an abortion clinic on their own by taking the bus so they can hide the visit from their parents,” Liberty Counsel said.
The latest trend is to push transgenderism, and one teacher recently had a grade-school student “transition” during class.
“Giving children sexually explicit materials desensitizes them to sexual ideas, conversations and conduct. 
Pornographic and obscene materials are a strong component of the grooming process used by sexual predators because it decreases the likelihood their abuse will be reported to authorities. 
Because of this, all 50 states have laws that give fines and jail time to adults who give harmful (obscene or pornographic) materials to children. 
However, the 43 states with loopholes permit these materials to be presented in school, which can facilitate students being groomed for sexual exploitation and abuse and give sexual predators a legally protected way to access young children through our schools,” Liberty Counsel said.
“Under the laws proposed by Liberty Counsel, schools can continue to teach information about the human body in the context of science class and about healthy living and relationships without exposing children to legally obscene material,” it explained.
However, there is “no educational value or purpose for allowing legally obscene and pornographic material.”

My comments: Chrsitians should understand that The Public Schools System run by the LEFT has No Conscience. They have no concept of right and wrong, and are Perverting America's Children.
