Bill Clinton signs RFRA Religious Freedom Restoration Act 3

The following is the speech President Bill Clinton delivered at the signing of the RFRA

    Thank you very much, Mr. Vice President, for those fine remarks and to the Members of Congress, the chaplains of the House and the Senate, and to all of you who worked so hard to help this day become a reality. Let me especially thank the Coalition for the Free Exercise of Religion for the central role they played in drafting this legislation and working so hard for its passage.

    It is interesting to note, as the Vice President said, what a broad coalition of Americans came together to make this bill a reality; interesting to note that that coalition produced a 97-to3 vote in the United States Senate and a bill that had such broad support it was adopted on a voice vote in the House. I’m told that, as many of the people in the coalition worked together across ideological and religious lines, some new friendships were formed and some new trust was established, which shows, I suppose, that the power of God is such that even in the legislative process miracles can happen. [Laughter]

    We all have a shared desire here to protect perhaps the most precious of all American liberties, religious freedom. Usually the signing of legislation by a President is a ministerial act, often a quiet ending to a turbulent legislative process. Today this event assumes a more majestic quality because of our ability together to affirm the historic role that people of faith have played in the history of this country and the constitutional protections those who profess and express their faith have always demanded and cherished.

    The power to reverse legislation by legislation, a decision of the United States Supreme Court, is a power that is rightly hesitantly and infrequently exercised by the United States Congress. But this is an issue in which that extraordinary measure was clearly called for. As the Vice President said, this act reverses the Supreme Court’s decision Employment Division against Smith and reestablishes a standard that better protects all Americans of all faiths in the exercise of their religion in a way that I am convinced is far more consistent with the intent of the Founders of this Nation than the Supreme Court decision.

    More than 50 cases have been decided against individuals making religious claims against Government action since that decision was handed down. This act will help to reverse that trend by honoring the principle that our laws and institutions should not impede or hinder but rather should protect and preserve fundamental religious liberties.

    The free exercise of religion has been called the first freedom, that which originally sparked the development of the full range of the Bill of Rights. Our Founders cared a lot about religion. And one of the reasons they worked so hard to get the first amendment into the Bill of Rights at the head of the class is that they well understood what could happen to this country, how both religion and Government could be perverted if there were not some space created and some protection provided. They knew that religion helps to give our people the character without which a democracy cannot survive. They knew that there needed to be a space of freedom between Government and people of faith that otherwise Government might usurp.

    They have seen now, all of us, that religion and religious institutions have brought forth faith and discipline, community and responsibility over two centuries for ourselves and enabled us to live together in ways that I believe would not have been possible. We are, after all, the oldest democracy now in history and probably the most truly multiethnic society on the face of the Earth. And I am convinced that neither one of those things would be true today had it not been for the importance of the first amendment and the fact that we have kept faith with it for 200 years.

    What this law basically says is that the Government should be held to a very high level of proof before it interferes with someone’s free exercise of religion. This judgment is shared by the people of the United States as well as by the Congress. We believe strongly that we can never, we can never be too vigilant in this work.

    Let me make one other comment if I might before I close and sit down and sign this bill. There is a great debate now abroad in the land which finds itself injected into several political races about the extent to which people of faith can seek to do God’s will as political actors. I would like to come down on the side of encouraging everybody to act on what they believe is the right thing to do. There are many people in this country who strenuously disagree with me on what they believe are the strongest grounds of their faiths. I encourage them to speak out. I encourage all Americans to reach deep inside to try to determine what it is that drives their lives most deeply.

    As many of you know, I have been quite moved by Stephen Carter’s book, “The Culture of Disbelief.” He makes a compelling case that today Americans of all political persuasions and all regions have created a climate in this country in which some people believe that they are embarrassed to say that they advocate a course of action simply because they believe it is the right thing to do, because they believe it is dictated by their faith, by what they discern to be, with their best efforts, the will of God.

    I submit to you today, my fellow Americans, that we can stand that kind of debate in this country. We are living in a country where the most central institution of our society, the family, has been under assault for 30 years. We are living in a country in which 160,000 schoolchildren don’t go to school every day because they’re afraid someone will shoot them or beat them up or knife them. We are living in a country now where gunshots are the single leading cause of death among teenage boys. We are living in a country where people can find themselves shot in the crossfire of teenagers who are often better armed than the police who are trying to protect other people from illegal conduct. It is high time we had an open and honest reaffirmation of the role of American citizens of faith, not so that we can agree but so that we can argue and discourse and seek the truth and seek to heal this troubled land.

    So today I ask you to also think of that. We are a people of faith. We have been so secure in that faith that we have enshrined in our Constitution protection for people who profess no faith. And good for us for doing so. That is what the first amendment is all about. But let us never believe that the freedom of religion imposes on any of us some responsibility to run from our convictions. Let us instead respect one another’s faiths, fight to the death to preserve the right of every American to practice whatever convictions he or she has, but bring our values back to the table of American discourse to heal our troubled land.

    Thank you very much.

Bill CLinton signs RFRA Religious Freedom Restoration Act

According to the NY Times, Clinton’s sentiments were echoed by many other members of an unusual coalition of liberal, conservative and religious groups that had pressed for the new law. The coalition included the National Association of Evangelicals, the Southern Baptist Convention, the National Council of Churches, the American Jewish Congress, the National Conference of Catholic Bishops, the Mormon Church, the Traditional Values Coalition and the American Civil Liberties Union.

In the Senate, where the bill was approved 97 to 3 on Oct. 27, it was sponsored by Senators Edward M. Kennedy, Democrat of Massachusetts, and Orrin G. Hatch, Republican of Utah. In the House, which passed the bill last May by a voice vote without objection, it was sponsored by Representative Charles E. Schumer, Democrat of Brooklyn, and Representative Christopher C. Cox, Republican of California.

Bill Clinton signs RFRA Religious Freedom Restoration Act 2

The President spoke at 9:15 a.m. on the South Lawn at the White House.

H.R. 1308, approved November 16, 1993 and was assigned Public Law No. 103-141.

According to the Washington Times, “So far the Religious Freedom Restoration Act has never worked as a defense for Christian bakers embroiled in lawsuits over gay weddings, but for a handful of Apache, Muslim and Sikh plaintiffs, it’s been a godsend.”

Black Pastor “Comes Out” asks Obama for invitation to WH encourages others to “come out” on social media

Pastor_and_Sister_Patterson_2011In a video posted online, Church of God In Christ Pastor Richard E. Patterson, Sr., has Comes Out as a Straight, Heterosexual Man, criticizing president Obama for inviting gay people to the White House simply because of their sexual preference.

The growing climate of heterophobia is of great concern to me,” Pastor Patterson states.

Pastor Patterson calls for hate crimes legislation to be enacted for heterosexual people.

He asks President Obama, ‘I want My Invitation’ to the White House.

“To our president, Mr. Barack Obama, it is a direct slap in the face to ignore heterosexual couples such as my wife and me. To trot out a gay couple at your recent state dinner where you entertained the French President. Mr. Collins, a former MBA player receives an invitation, simply because he came out last year as gay. Well, I have now come out as straight and I expect the same courtesy and if not it will be viewed as a direct slap in the face to those who live our lives as straight heterosexual individuals every day. We pay our taxes, we obey the laws of the land, I want my invitation. states Pastor Patterson.

He then encourages everyone else to “come Out” on facebook, twitter and other social media outlets.

Superintendent-Richard-E.-Patterson-Sr.

Patterson, is Pastor of St. Samuel Temple Church of God in Christ, Chicago, Illinois.

The church has posted this statement in their website:

Given the heightened sensitivity around the issue of same-sex marriage we feel it important to state our position on this crucial matter.

St. Samuel Temple Church of God in Christ believes in the practice of living a Saved and Sanctified life as detailed in the Holy Scriptures. We disavow the practice of any
immoral act, or sin, i.e. adultery, homosexuality, child molestation and such like contained in the Bible.

We believe that marriage is between a man and woman and the God-intended family springs hopeful from such a union.

We do not endorse, support, or encourage hatred, mistreatment, or abuse of any kind against anyone, because of their beliefs or practices. We also expect the same respect and consideration for the stand we take with regard to our beliefs from those who may oppose them.

It is our hope that this ministry can provide an environment where the sinner can find a place to confess his sins and receive prayer for deliverance.

Abortionist Randall Whitney goes berserk

Randall Whitney Shoots Finger

Early in the month of November 2013, pro-lifers outside an abortion clinic in Central Florida operated by Randall Whitney recorded this abortion doctor going berserk. He used foul language and shot the bird several times. I think he is losing it, watch for yourself:

Randall WhitneyCarA few months ago, Florida Abortionist Randall Whitney said this to pro-lifers. The unborn baby, “Would not have been a full baby…It is not a being..It is not a baby. The baby is when its born, it is separate from its host…I grew up in the church…It’s not a human being…it’s a frog.”

According to Forerunner Blog:

Randall Whitney is a circuit rider abortionist for James Pendergraft’s Women’s Center mills in Orlando and Ocala specializing in 2nd trimester abortions. Whitney has testified to the Florida Department of Health and also during a civil lawsuit hearing that babies are sometimes born alive and left to die in James Pendergraft’s abortion clinics where he works.

He served a suspension in the 1980s for a malpractice incident. After that time, he began doing abortions more or less full-time.

In the mid-1990s, he tried to open a second abortion clinic in Melbourne in competition with Aware Woman. When pro-lifers discovered this, they leafleted the 5-story river-front office building where Whitney had signed a lease telling all the tenants that Whitney was an abortionist. Discovering that Whitney had lied about the nature of his business, and being very pro-life themselves, the building owners canceled his lease. In

November 2001 – Carol Howard, a patient of Whitney’s delivers a child who lived with massive birth defects after a failed abortion.

May 2004 – Carol Howard files a civil lawsuit against Randall Whitney, Pendergraft, and the Orlando Women’s Center.

A 2005 AHCA report (click to enlarge)

May 2005 – An investigation by the Agency for Health Care Adminsitration reveals testimony from clinic workers and police that babies are sometimes born alive at Oralndo Women’s Center. Whitney seems to have been the “physician” who testified that babies sometimes “twitter” when they are born alive into toilets in the abortion center.

February 2006 – Pro-life activists are alerted by emails from someone claiming to be a clinic worker employed by Whitney in Daytona Beach alleging he was violent, disobeyed medical laws, and caused young boys to be disfigured after routine circumcisions.

September 2006 – Whitney closes down his own clinic, Family Planning Center, in Daytona Beach, rather than comply with state regulators. Whitney goes back to doing abortions on-the-road.

March 2010 – Whitney is arrested at Orlando Women’s Center for aggravated battery after slapping a patient while she was on the operating table.

rwhitney_arrest_citationWhitney Arrest Page 2

September 2010 – Whitney is taken out of the Orlando Women’s Center abortion clinic in handcuffs by the police. This time it is on a warrant issued because he did not show up for a court hearing. The police are tipped off by two sidewalk counselors who knew about the warrant and noted that Whitney had been sleeping in his car in the OWC parking lot. This is the second time in six months that Whitney has been arrested while on duty at the abortion clinic.

July 2011 – A Florida jury awards $36,766,000 in damages to Carol Howard, to provide funding for lifetime care of “JH,” who was severely harmed as a result of being born alive after a botched abortion that occurred at Orlando Women’s Center in 2001.

Perhaps the most interesting part of the trial testimony is when Randall Whitney, the abortionist on duty at the time, speaks cavalierly and without being prodded about babies being born alive into the toilet.

Although Whitney has declared bankruptcy and avoided judgment in the $36.7 million lawsuit, he is also the defendant in two other malpractice lawsuits in 2011 and 2012, Darosa vs. Whitney, et al, and Uzzle vs. Whitney, et al.

PRYSM gay Rights Group under scrutiny for teaching homosexual foreplay in school

Posted in homosexuality, Sex Ed with tags , , , , , , , on June 11, 2013 by saynsumthn

H/T Here

A school district in Maine is apologizing after middle school students learned about homosexual foreplay during what was supposed to be a “Diversity Day” presentation

“I don’t want my child taught heterosexual foreplay, let alone homosexual foreplay,” said an outraged parent Kristy Howard.

The principal of Gorham Middle School sent a letter to parents apologizing for the graphic nature of the presentation by PRYSM, Proud Rainbow Youth of Southern Maine.

“They went beyond the scope of our intentions and discussed topics that we do not deem appropriate for our middle school,” Robert Riley wrote in a letter obtained by The American Journal. “We do not intend to expose them to ideas that are not within the scope of our teaching about responsible citizenship as it is embedded in our code of conduct.”

The incident occurred two weeks before the state voted to approve gay marriage – and involved a classroom of 25 eighth graders.

Howard’s 13-year-old son was one of those who came home shocked by the presentation’s graphic nature.

“They were talking about sex and if you didn’t have a condom – saran wrap could be used in place of a dental dam,” Howard told Fox News. “It was all new to me.”

Howard said the PRYSM presenters also cursed and questioned whether the children had been taught about safe homosexual sex.

One parent relates her frustration about why teachers didn’t step in to stop this:

Michael Steele on Rev. Wright, Gay Marriage and Planned Parenthood’s racist/eugenics goal of limiting Black Births

Former GOP Party Chair: Planned Parenthood Targets Blacks
by Steven Ertelt | Washington, DC | LifeNews.com | 5/22/12 1:26 PM

The former chairman of the Republican National Committee said in an interview on Monday that the Planned Parenthood abortion business targets African-Americans. Michael Steele told Laura Ingraham’s Monday radio show, when asked about the NAACP, that the prominent pro-abortion organization is no friend of the black community.
Steele also said the relationship between the NAACP and Planned Parenthood should be made better known.

“It is one of those twists of history that I’ve yet to understand and how when you look at something like the NAACP siding up with an organization like Planned Parenthood that has as part of its history and its charter and its existence — you know, the use of abortion to eliminate and limit the number of African-Americans and other minorities in this country, to me it’s just beyond the pale,” Steele said.

He said: “I think again, it creates an opening for our voice to be a part of the conversation within the community to a) set the record straight on the history, and b) speak to those values that I know you hear every Sunday in church and that those folks try to live out every day of their lives.”

An August 2011 report issued by the pro-life group Life Dynamics proves that Planned Parenthood and the abortion industry in the United States target black and Hispanic Americans by placing abortion facilities in communities with high minority populations.

Titled, “Racial Targeting and Population Control,” the report validates the claims pro-life advocates have made for years — and that Life Dynamics made in its groundbreaking Maafa21 video released two years ago — showing that abortion advocates have purposefully placed abortion centers in urban areas with high percentages of black and Hispanic residents.

The results were startling.
In Texas alone, 94 zip codes show either an abortion facility or a Planned Parenthood abortion-referral clinic located there and 72 percent of the zip codes have populations that are disproportionately black and/or Hispanic.

The report also found multiple abortion centers in many super-minority populated areas. The New Jersey zip code 07631 has a black population 286.7% of the state’s overall percentage and a Hispanic population 163.9% of the state, they noted, and it has four abortion or abortion-referral centers. Minnesota zip code 55404 has a black population that is 797.1% of the overall state percentage and a Hispanic population 537.9% of the state and there are three abortion or abortion-referral clinics there.

The racial targeting is not limited to certain regions of the country. In Connecticut – a state thoroughly dissimilar from Texas in size, culture and geography – there are 21 zip codes where abortion centers or Planned Parenthood abortion-referral clinics are located and 15 of them have disproportionately black and/or Hispanic populations.

“What we now know – and have documented – is that there is not one state in the union without [abortion] centers located in ZIP codes with higher percentages of blacks and/or Hispanics than the state’s overall percentage. In fact, Hawaii is the only state that does not have facilities located in ZIP codes exceeding 125% of their overall percentage,” they write. “Not only is this racial targeting widespread, it’s scale is often enormous. We found 42 states with family planning facilities in ZIP codes where the black and/or Hispanic population exceeds 200% of the state’s overall percentage. More telling is that these percentages routinely go far beyond even this level. Numerous states have facilities in ZIP codes that range from 250% to well over 1,000% and it is not uncommon for them to have facilities located in many such ZIP codes.”

“In the end, this data speaks for itself and does not require a lot of analysis. The numbers make it clear that the African-American and Hispanic communities have been targeted and logic makes it clear that this did not happen coincidentally or unintentionally,” they concluded.

Planned Parenthood founder, Margaret 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)
