Alabama Black Politician ( Artur Davis) defects from Democrat Party criticized Obama’s birth control mandate, forced abortion payments in ObamaCare and gay marriage

A Southern Democrat defecting to the GOP is not news. A black Southern Democrat defecting to the GOP is pretty big news. A black Southern Democrat who is a member of Congress and a vocal supporter of President Barack Obama warrants a screaming headline.

Former Alabama Congressman Artur Davis, an early Obama supporter who ran for governor in 2010, hinted on Tuesday that he may run for office in his new home state of Virginia. “If I were to run, it would be as a Republican,” he wrote. The former Alabama Congressman Artur Davis has announced he is leaving the Democratic Party, joining the Republican Party, and says he will likely vote for Mitt Romney in November.

“[F]aith institutions should not be compelled to violate their teachings because faith is a freedom, too,” he wrote on his blog, which he refers to as “free opposition research.”

He jabbed the administration for plunging “headfirst into a fight over contraception and Catholic hospitals” in February. He wrote of Obama, “something seems to have been drained out of this presidency. Since the start of 2012, it has been curiously devoid of an economic agenda, preoccupied with interest group politics, deliberately unwilling to assert much of a long term priority list. The administration has spent inordinate time on two causes, mandating Catholic institutions to cover birth control in their employee insurance plans—an issue few Americans had stressed over prior to this year—and challenging state voter ID laws, which 70 percent of the country support.Even if you deeply believe that on both issues, the administration is right and its critics are wrong-headed, it is impossible to argue that Obama gave much attention to either fight until recently. As a senator and presidential candidate, he offered no criticism of the Supreme Court’s 2008 ruling that Indiana’s voter ID law was a legitimate means to preclude voter fraud (a ruling written by a liberal icon, John Paul Stevens). Nor did the Obama of 08 question the long-time practice of Catholic workplaces leaving contraceptives out of their employee benefits. Right or wrong, each fixation seems more an election year bow to his political base than a response to a tide of public urgency.”

Davis is black, but even in Congress he didn’t toe the Black Caucus line. He was an opponent of what has become known as Obamacare, and left his U.S. seat to run for governor of Alabama.

In 2009, Davis and other Democrats sent a letter to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi saying they don’t want any abortion funding or mandates in the health care bill under consideration by the U.S. House. Speaker Pelosi received a first letter signed by 20 pro-life Democrats several weeks ago. Among the five Democrats who signed the letter was Rep. Artur Davis (D-Ala.), a moderate Democrat who is running for governor of Alabama. Excerpt of the letter:

“…we believe that a common ground solution is to include language in the final legislation that makes clear that no insurance company will be required to pay for an abortion except in extraordinary circumstances — nor will they be prohibited from paying for an abortion, so long as health insurance plans offered in the exchange that choose to provide abortion coverage pay for those services with funds that are separate and distinct from any federal subsidies.

This solution maintains the current status quo in the private market – where insurance companies can choose whether to include this coverage in their plans and individuals can choose which plan (and what sort of coverage) fits their individual needs and values while ensuring that no federal funds are used to pay for abortions.

Lastly, we believe that health reform legislation should not preempt constitutionally permissible state laws that establish pre-requisites that a patient must satisfy before obtaining an abortion, such as parental consent and waiting period laws.
In addition to Rep. Davis, liberal Rep. Kendrick Meek (D-Fla.) is another member of the Congressional Black Caucus who signed on to the letter.

Davis has a mixed record on abortion legislation ( Read here). Just this year, while opposing requiring Ultra Sounds before abortion, Davis made this observation, “The fact is that in a country turning left on most social issues, pro-life politics is stronger than it’s been in decades—Gallup says about half the country opposes the legality of abortions, and the number who favor making the practice rare and hard to get approaches a super majority. One undeniable reason is that technology is simultaneously exposing the violent details of abortion and the vitality of an unborn fetus. The science is making abortion on demand look more hard-hearted than ever to young, college educated women, whose opinions on the issue have shifted dramatically in the last decade.”

Davis is evolving and perhaps he will see the real dangers of a pro-choice stance in the black community on abortion especially since new information being released in a documentary Maafa21 is awakening African Americans to the real racist agenda of abortion.

I hope more will watch the documentary Maafa21 and see how abortion will affect the African American Community

Davis was also outspoken against OBAMA’s position on Same Sex Homosexual Marriage.

Top Ten Anti-Christian Attacks in 2009

FROM: Christian Anti-Defamation Commission

VISTA, Calif., Jan. 4 /Christian Newswire/ — The Christian Anti-Defamation Commission (CADC) has released its list of the top ten incidents of anti-Christian defamation, bigotry and discrimination in the US from last year. The list was selected by the subscribers to CADC’s e-mail list and was selected from a list of twenty of CADC’s top stories from 2009.

“It is arguable that anti-Christian hatred has spilled over into material forms of persecution in 2009,” said Dr. Gary Cass of the Christian Anti-Defamation Commission. “Christians were killed and bullied for their witness, ministers and churches threatened with violence and vandalized for standing for marriage, and Christians were fired for not compromising their faith. If these are not bona fide examples of persecution, than I wonder what more it might take?”

The Top Ten Anti-Christian headlines for 2009 according to CADC subscribers are,

10. Pro-life Pastor Reverend Walter Hoye of Oakland, CA was jailed for exercising peaceful, pro-life speech.

9. Rev. Fred Winters was murdered while preaching in his pulpit in Maryville, Illinois.

8. HBO’s program “Curb Your Enthusiasm” aired an episode where the main actor urinates on painting of Jesus. When confronted HBO would not apologize.

7. The overt homosexual participation in Obama’s presidential inaugural events by “Bishop” Vickie Eugene Robinson, the Gay Men’s Chorus of Washington D. C., and a homosexual marching band.

6. Police called to East Jessamine Middle School in Lexington, Kentucky to stop 8th graders from praying during their lunch break for a student whose mother was tragically killed.

5. Pro-life activist Jim Pullion was murdered in front of his granddaughter’s high school for showing the truth about abortion.

4. An activist judge ordered a home school mom in New Hampshire to stop home schooling her daughter because the little girl “reflected too strongly” her mother’s Christian faith.

3. The Federal Department of Homeland Security issued a report entitled “Rightwing Extremism: Current Economic and Political Climate” that labeled conservative Christians extremists and potential terrorists.

2. President Obama’s appointment of radical anti-Christians like homosexual activist Kevin Jennings as the “safe school czar;” pro-abortion advocate Kathleen Seblius made Secretary of Human and Health Services, and Chai Feldblum, pro-homosexual and anti-religious liberty judge nominated for Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.

1. The Federal Hate Crimes Bill that attacks religious liberty and freedom of speech. For the first time in our history ministers are vulnerable to investigation and prosecution for telling the truth about homosexuality.

But…The 2009 Crime Report Against Christian Organizations in the United States published by the Christian Security Network there have been 1,237 crimes against Christian churches including 12 homicides, 38 other violent incidents including, 3 sexual assaults, 3 kidnappings, 98 arsons, and over 700 burglaries resulting in more than $24 million in property loss.

The crime report, the first of its kind, specifically tracked incidents just against churches.

NOV 17,2009 CBN WASHINGTON –

It has been less than a month since President Obama signed the hate crimes bill to extend protection to gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered Americans– yet more pastors are growing concerned about the new laws.

Religious and legal leaders gathered in Washington, D.C. to protest, Monday, fearing the legislation will restrict what can be preached from the pulpit.

The protestors gathered in front of the Justice Department say Christians’ right to speak the Gospel are now threatened like never before.

That is because a hate crimes law meant to protect homosexuals could someday be used to silence sermons and even the reading of scriptures that condemn homosexuality.

Dr. Gary Cass helped organize the protest.

Those scriptures are already illegal in some countries that have hate crime laws,” said Cass. “Canada being the closest. So we know where hate crime legislation leads. As we’ve said: it’s not hate crimes, it’s hate Christians. Because it’s Christians who are actually on the receiving end of the prosecution of these laws.”

Roughly a dozen pastors and heads of religious rights organizations led the protest.

Among them was a British barrister who came all the way from England to warn hate crimes laws there are already being used against Christians.

Paul Diamond says British Christians have been arrested when they are the ones who been violently attacked.

We have Christians attacked for evangelism and they are arrested for inciting their own attack,” said Diamond. “Sometimes the attacks are brought by sick members of the public, sometimes by individual homosexuals.”

Backers of the law say it is only supposed to affect those who commit acts of violence against a member of a protected group like homosexuals.

But Dr. Cass says actually the law can be used to prosecute those who in any way incite that violence.

“Somebody could listen to a minister on any given Sunday, and the minister would have to know what’s in that person’s mind and what that person might do in the future,” said Cass. “And if that person went out and committed a hate crime, the minister would be as guilty as the person who actually perpetrates the crime. And that’s unprecedented in American history.”

And Barrister Diamond warns some in Britain now see preachers as more dangerous than those who commit violent acts against a minority.

Many people are arguing now in the universities that speech is worse than violence,” Diamond added. “That it encourages stereotypical views, it incites discrimination”

Now the protesting pastors say they don’t hate homosexuals and they would never commit an act of violence against them. But they say if it becomes a crime to preach the Gospel, that is a crime they are always going to be willing to commit.

Pray for America: URGENT

Posted in Abortion, Constitution, Religion with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on July 15, 2009 by saynsumthn

Sisters and Brothers:

This morning I spent some time in prayer for America – it was the type of prayer that was so incredibly urgent that I sobbed and cried out to our Lord for His mercy on this nation I deeply love.

Many changes are happening in our country and many more are coming down quickly. Huge changes are on the brink of decision in Washington and it appears there is nothing we can do about it unless the Lord were to intervene. Well…when all seems hopeless, when it seems as though there is nothing we can do, let me tell you – that is the perfect time to cry out to a God who is full of mercy.

Let us not forget that: when the Israelites left Egypt, Pharaoh changed his mind and began to pursue them. They ran and ran until their backs were against a wall- or a Red Sea. But God in His mercy opened up that Sea. He did the miraculous.

When the Disciples were in the boat with Jesus and the storm began to blow – the winds picked up and they feared for their very lives, they finally turned and WOKE JESUS UP.
“H-E-L-P”, they cried.
Our Lord rebuked those winds and stopped the raging seas.

Many times in scripture we see Moses or Daniel and others bargaining ( for lack of a better word) with the Lord ” Do not destroy this people” , And for the sake of the righteous one doing the pleading the Lord was moved.

Exodus 32: 9-14
And the LORD said unto Moses, I have seen this people, and, behold, it is a stiffnecked people: Now therefore let me alone, that my wrath may wax hot against them, and that I may consume them: and I will make of thee a great nation. And Moses besought the LORD his God, and said, LORD, why doth thy wrath wax hot against thy people, which thou hast brought forth out of the land of Egypt with great power, and with a mighty hand? Wherefore should the Egyptians speak, and say, For mischief did he bring them out, to slay them in the mountains, and to consume them from the face of the earth? Turn from thy fierce wrath, and repent of this evil against thy people. Remember Abraham, Isaac, and Israel, thy servants, to whom thou swarest by thine own self, and saidst unto them, I will multiply your seed as the stars of heaven, and all this land that I have spoken of will I give unto your seed, and they shall inherit it for ever. And the LORD repented of the evil which he thought to do unto his people.

Daniel 9
Daniel’s Prayer , In the first year of Darius son of Ahasuerus (a Mede by descent), who was made ruler over the Babylonian kingdom- in the first year of his reign, I, Daniel, understood from the Scriptures, according to the word of the LORD given to Jeremiah the prophet, that the desolation of Jerusalem would last seventy years. So I turned to the Lord God and pleaded with him in prayer and petition, in fasting, and in sackcloth and ashes.
I prayed to the LORD my God and confessed:
“O Lord, the great and awesome God, who keeps his covenant of love with all who love him and obey his commands, we have sinned and done wrong. We have been wicked and have rebelled; we have turned away from your commands and laws. We have not listened to your servants the prophets, who spoke in your name to our kings, our princes and our fathers, and to all the people of the land. “Lord, you are righteous, but this day we are covered with shame—the men of Judah and people of Jerusalem and all Israel, both near and far, in all the countries where you have scattered us because of our unfaithfulness to you. O LORD, we and our kings, our princes and our fathers are covered with shame because we have sinned against you. The Lord our God is merciful and forgiving, even though we have rebelled against him; we have not obeyed the LORD our God or kept the laws he gave us through his servants the prophets. All Israel has transgressed your law and turned away, refusing to obey you. Therefore the curses and sworn judgments written in the Law of Moses, the servant of God, have been poured out on us, because we have sinned against you. You have fulfilled the words spoken against us and against our rulers by bringing upon us great disaster. Under the whole heaven nothing has ever been done like what has been done to Jerusalem. Just as it is written in the Law of Moses, all this disaster has come upon us, yet we have not sought the favor of the LORD our God by turning from our sins and giving attention to your truth. The LORD did not hesitate to bring the disaster upon us, for the LORD our God is righteous in everything he does; yet we have not obeyed him. “Now, O Lord our God, who brought your people out of Egypt with a mighty hand and who made for yourself a name that endures to this day, we have sinned, we have done wrong. O Lord, in keeping with all your righteous acts, turn away your anger and your wrath from Jerusalem, your city, your holy hill. Our sins and the iniquities of our fathers have made Jerusalem and your people an object of scorn to all those around us. Now, our God, hear the prayers and petitions of your servant. For your sake, O Lord, look with favor on your desolate sanctuary. Give ear, O God, and hear; open your eyes and see the desolation of the city that bears your Name. We do not make requests of you because we are righteous, but because of your great mercy. O Lord, listen! O Lord, forgive! O Lord, hear and act! For your sake, O my God, do not delay, because your city and your people bear your Name.”

When Esther was Queen, and the Jews were threatened, she went into an earthly king – fearing her life- she threw herself at his mercy and petitioned him on behalf of herself and her people. An earthly King who loved His queen was moved with compassion and fought to save Esther and her people. Listen to me, if an earthly king can be moved to change his mind – to overthrow a decree- than how much more would our Heavenly King of all Kings and more merciful than imaginable be moved if we but beseech Him?

I do not know the outcome of all these changes in our land and I do not know God’s perfect will for our nation. We, as a nation, have brought this upon ourselves to a certain extent. But there is one thing I am certain – I serve a merciful and forgiving Father. I refuse to look only at the magnitude of the problem, but I choose to see the vastness and greatness of our Lord. Scripture tells us that if we, His people, will come to Him and beseech Him for our nation, repenting for the sin of this nation, that He will hear us from Heaven forgive our sin and heal our land.

Get that? From Heaven – He will HEAR US ! I am so moved by that – my Lord- awesome God- will HEAR US !

Please Please Please – if you feel discouraged, like quitting, like turning your head away and simply accepting the direction things are heading… If you feel like there is no possibility of changing the course of America – please I beg you – turn to the Lord. Like never before, beseech the Lord for His mercy over this land. I am not so proud that I will not cry out and accept responsibility for my own sin that may have led to the direction this nation is taking. I will fall at His feet and I will humble myself before His mighty hand and I will declare that He is the Lord and He holds the hand of the King in His hand. “The king’s heart is in the hand of the LORD, as the rivers of water: he turneth it whithersoever he will.” ( Proverbs 21:1)

With that, I know that after I have laid everything at His feet – all my concerns, I can trust Him for the final outcome. Not My outcome but the one that furthers His Kingdom and I will accept His will in every situation. But, I will ask and keep asking – seek and keep seeking – knock and keep knocking until that decision is made.

Will you join me?
