Wal-Mart’s CEO has taken a side against religious liberty by asking the Arkansas Governor to veto the state’s Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA) and now twitter shoppers are firing back.

The Bentonville, Arkansas-based company says the legislation threatens to undermine” the state’s inclusive spirit and does not reflect the company’s values.

Walmart statement on RFRA

“Every day in our stores, we see firsthand the benefits diversity and inclusion have on our associates, customers and communities we serve,” Wal-Mart CEO Doug McMillan said in a statement posted to Twitter. “It all starts with our core basic belief of respect for the individual. Today’s passage of HB1228 threatens to undermine the spirit of inclusion present throughout the state of Arkansas and does not reflect the values we proudly uphold.”

HB 1228 which is still making it’s way through the Arkansas legislature reads in part:

    It is the intent of the General Assembly to:
    (1) Ensure that in all cases in which state action substantially burdens the exercise of religion strict scrutiny is applied;
    (2) Provide a claim or defense to a person whose exercise of religion is substantially burdened by state action; and
    (3) Implement Article 2, § 24, of the Arkansas Constitution, which states that “[N]o human authority can, in any case or manner whatsoever, control or interfere with the right of conscience”.

Todd Starnes and Tony Perkins both jumped in with the following tweets:

Some criticize the Wal-Mart CEO for doing business with China but opposing religious people in his own state.

Others are either calling for a boycott or vowing to not shop at Wal-Mart:

Among them is Jack Graham, pastor of Prestonwood Baptist Church and former two-term president of the Southern Baptist Convention, who is preparing to lead the nation in prayer on May 7 in Washington, D.C. as honorary chair of the 64th annual National Day of Prayer.

Black Community calls for a boycott of Planned Parenthood

Posted in Abortion, Black Conservative, Black Genocide, Black Pastor, Johnny Hunter, Planned Parenthood with tags , , , , , on April 11, 2011 by saynsumthn

Planned Parenthood was founded by a RACIST Klan Speaker , named Margaret Sanger….

Sanger, was a member in good standing with the racist American Eugenics Society. Sanger had board members who were known for their racist writing and Sanger published many of those in her publications. Sanger called for parents to have a QUOTE: LICENSE TO BREED controlled by people who believed in her eugenic philosophy. She wanted all would be parents to go before her eugenic boards to request a “PERMIT TO BREED“.

Margaret Sanger once said, “More children from the fit, less from the unfit — that is the chief aim of birth control.” Birth Control Review, May 1919, p. 12

In Margaret Sanger’s, “Birth Control and Racial Betterment,” Feb 1919. Birth Control Review , Library of Congress Microfilm 131:0099B .
Sanger states, “Before eugenists and others who are laboring for racial betterment can succeed, they must first clear the way for Birth Control. Like the advocates of Birth Control, the eugenists, for instance, are seeking to assist the race toward the elimination of the unfit. Both are seeking a single end but they lay emphasis upon different methods.

Eugenists emphasize the mating of healthy couples for the conscious purpose of producing healthy children, the sterilization of the unfit to prevent their populating the world with their kind and they may, perhaps, agree with us that contraception is a necessary measure among the masses of the workers, where wages do not keep pace with the growth of the family and its necessities in the way of food, clothing, housing, medical attention, education and the like.

We who advocate Birth Control, on the other hand, lay all our emphasis upon stopping not only the reproduction of the unfit but upon stopping all reproduction when there is not economic means of providing proper care for those who are born in health.While I personally believe in the sterilization of the feeble-minded, the insane and syphilitic, I have not been able to discover that these measures are more than superficial deterrents when applied to the constantly growing stream of the unfitEugenics without Birth Control seems to us a house builded upon the sands. It is at the mercy of the rising stream of the unfit…

Sanger also called for those who were poor and what she considered to be “morons and immoral‘ , to be shipped to colonies where they would live in “Farms and Open Spaces” dedicated to brainwashing these so-called “inferior types” into having what Sanger called, “Better moral conduct”.

I consider that the world and almost our civilization for the next twenty-five years, is going to depend upon a simple, cheap, safe contraceptive to be used in poverty stricken slums, jungles, and among the most ignorant people. Even this will not be sufficient, because I believe that now, immediately, there should be national sterilization for certain dysgenic types of our population who are being encouraged to breed and would die out were the government not feeding them.
Planned Parenthood Founder, Margaret Sanger, 1950

In addition, Planned Parenthood’s top award is called the Margaret Sanger Award, despite the fact that Sanger was an admitted Klan speaker. This is what Sanger wrote in her autobiography, “I accepted an invitation to talk to the women’s branch of the Ku Klux Klan…I saw through the door dim figures parading with banners and illuminated crosses…I was escorted to the platform, was introduced, and began to speak…In the end, through simple illustrations I believed I had accomplished my purpose. A dozen invitations to speak to similar groups were proffered.” (Margaret Sanger: An Autobiography, P.366 Read it here http://library.lifedynamics.com//Autobiography/Chapter%2029.pdf)

In 1962, Vice President of the American Eugenics Society at the time, Dr. Alan Guttmacher wants abortion laws patterned after Sweden and other nations. One reason they list to allow abortions is :EUGENIC ! Also- Guttmacher at this point says he does NOT BELIEVE that abortion should be left up to the patient or their doctor, rather it should be up to “Special Board” to approve the abortion.

Girl Scouts “Dishonored” by Planned Parenthood?

Girl Scouts’ Stumble Boosts Christian-Based American Heritage Girls 3/30/2004
By Martha Kleder
Planned Parenthood connection raises questions about GSA’s priorities.

What started as a local boycott of Girl Scout cookies in Waco, Texas, has blossomed into a nationwide investigation into the connection between the Girl Scouts and Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion provider.

At the same time, the Christian-based American Heritage Girls (AHG) is picking up new members and troop leaders thanks to the controversy.

“We are Christ-centered, not spiritually principled (GSUSA’s words), and that makes a huge difference,” American Heritage Girls founder Patti Garibay told CWA. “Just since the article in the March 22, 2004, USA Today, we have had 800,000 hits to our Web site, over 400 requests for information through the Internet, along with countless phone calls to our office, and we have been dealing with this issue for several weeks before that story ran.”

Garibay added that AHG now has 2,800 girls enrolled and 450 volunteers across 22 states. Since this renewed attention on the Girl Scouts’ unwholesome alliances, Garibay says, Heritage has seen an increase in membership interest.

“We have 25 pending troops right now, and in just two days we have sent out 15 information kits. Those kits, which begin the troop charter process, have to be purchased, so that indicates serious interest,” she added.

But while those contacts are boosting AHG ranks, Garibay says they are far from joyful.

“We have also been doing a lot of counseling,” she added. “People are just heartbroken to learn of these activities between the Girl Scouts and Planned Parenthood. However, this is really nothing new.”

Girl Scouting’s secretive alliance

The alliance between the Girl Scouts and Planned Parenthood appeared at first to be limited to the Bluebonnet Council of Girl Scouts in central Texas. It has since been revealed that the close association is nationwide and reaches to the top of the Scouting organization.

Girl Scouts CEO Kathy Cloninger admitted on NBC’s Today Show that many troops have alliances with Planned Parenthood and that those relationships would continue.
Across the nation the alliances have taken many forms:

• In Waco, Texas, the Bluebonnet Council places the national Girl Scout logo on posters for Planned Parenthood of Central Texas’ annual summer sex-education seminar for fifth to ninth graders.
• That Council also gave a “woman of distinction” award last year to the executive director of Planned Parenthood of Central Texas.
• Nevada’s Frontier Council Web site advertised a March 20 feminist conference featuring Planned Parenthood President Gloria Feldt and a workshop on lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered issues.
• In 2003 the Girl Scouts of Connecticut honored a Planned Parenthood official for her outstanding work in promoting “healthy practices” in local troops.
• The Girl Scout leadership manual gives visits to health clinics like Planned Parenthood as an acceptable option for Brownie troops. Brownies are for girls six to eight years old.
These are just a few of the ties uncovered by Jim Sedlak of Stop Planned Parenthood International (STOPP), an American Life League affiliate. On April 5, STOPP plans to release a report, available on-line, listing all 315 councils of Girl Scouts of the USA, and their affiliation with Planned Parenthood.

“The alliance between the two groups is definitely supported at the highest levels of Girl Scouting,” Ed Szymkowiak, STOPP’s national director, told CWA. “But one thing that has stood out in the investigation is just how local an issue this is. We have had councils that said they do not affiliate with Planned Parenthood, we have had councils that have refused to answer the question and still others have said they do not now, but will not rule out the possibility.”

“One council executive director told us that there is nothing prohibiting a local troop leader from initiating such a relationship, even if the area council has no connections to Planned Parenthood,” he added. “Parents really need to watch this issue on their local level.”

Similar dilemma sparked AHG’s founding

Controversy has followed the Girl Scouts for some time. The Cincinnati, Ohio-based American Heritage Girls was formed in 1995 after “flexibility” was adopted within the Girl Scout promise, allowing girls to replace the word “God” with concepts of their own choosing.

Garibay says that was just one of many changes she witnessed.

“This issue about ties between the Girl Scouts and Planned Parenthood is nothing new,” she said. “We saw the same thing 10 years ago in our area that the folks in Waco just discovered. To this day, the Girl Scouts continue to align themselves only with pro-abortion groups. So, I was not surprised when The Waco Tribune ran an article indicating that the Girl Scouts USA had not apologized for the affiliation, but simply backed away to end the bad press.”

Along with the abortion culture, the Girl Scouts also tacitly endorse lesbianism as an acceptable lifestyle.

“And it was in 1994 that then-Surgeon General Dr. Joycelyn Elders made positive comments about lesbian Girl Scout leaders,” Garibay added. “We regularly hear from folks across the country about lesbian activity within their local troops or regional councils.”Other efforts include a push to de-feminize the program by removing badges for all traditionally feminine or domestic-related pursuits and replacing them with career-focused activities.

The Girl Scouts have also taken steps to remove as many references to faith as possible from the program.

From the Girl Scouts of the USA Web page “Girl Scout Beliefs and Values,” the national organization makes clear that its chief value is a “spiritual”-based diversity. Leaders receive the following instructions:

• Even if your troop is all of one faith, the Girl Scout meeting is not an appropriate place for prayers and hymns. Girl Scouts is not a religious organization.
• Help girls to be sensitive to all spiritual beliefs when picking readings for ceremonies, or songs for around mealtime. The songs and readings chosen can celebrate similarities as well as differences in beliefs. Avoid references to “God” as being a specific deity.

“Prayer is now banned at Girl Scout meetings,” said Garibay. When I was a Scout, you would at least say a brief prayer of thanks before snack time, or sing Christmas carols in December, but not anymore.”

The purge of religion has been taken a step further, Garibay says. Even living out your own faith has become taboo.

“People are now being asked to step down as troop leaders because they, personally, are ‘too religious,’” she said.

American Heritage Girls: A growing option

“When developing American Heritage Girls, we wanted to make sure that Christian values would remain at the core,” Garibay said. “We took the advice of my friends in the Boy Scouts, and we stay away from all government or United Way funding. [Editor’s note: About 60 United Way chapters have withdrawn support of the Boy Scouts over the Scouts’ refusal to allow homosexual troop leaders or members.]

“We operate on a charter system, so that the chartering organization owns the troop. We charter to churches and Christian schools, so that the AHG troop operates just like any other ministry under their wing.

“We require that all troop leaders sign a statement of faith,” she added. “But the girls who attend are not required to. All girls are welcome.”

Minister calls for boycott of Houston over Planned Parenthood clinic, gay mayor

A Texas pastor is calling for a boycott of Houston. He says a new Planned Parenthood clinic and our newly elected mayor, who is gay, run counter to what he says is supposed to be a large Christian community.

An Amarillo, Texas pastor has created a Web site dedicated to calling for a boycott of Houston.

BoycottHouston.com says part of its mission is “To impose economic sanctions on the city of Houston, Texas for voting in an openly homosexual mayor and for allowing the largest Planned Parenthood abortion clinic in the United States.”

The pastor said those factors run counter to what he says is supposed to be a large Christian community.

Earlier this week, a much larger protest outside the new Planned Parenthood headquarters attracted hundreds of anti-abortion demonstrators from around the country.

David Grisham of Raven Amarillo created the website.
“We really do believe that the Christians down in Houston need to get out,” Grisham says, “They need to get out of their air conditioned pews. They need to get off of their blessed assurances so to speak and get out into their community before evil takes control of their community.

Grisham says the idea to create the website came to him in a prayer. “Well I was in prayer and the Lord gave it to me and said if you do this it’ll go over big. And sure enough it did. We sent out three emails and kaboom, it went over big.
