Molestation of The Duck Dynasty: Homosexual activism and political correctness a wicked combination mix

Included in this posting: Mini commentary, pic with caption and related informational links below:

It is obvious what has taken place with the action directed against the Duck Dynasty celebrity. Homosexual activists squealed bloody murder to the A&E Network. Consequently A&E (on bended weak knees) complied with political correctness to the double standard First Amendment (bigoted) homosexual activists.

Please note the following article link to (help) understand why homosexual activism is rabidly rampant with the molestation of American free speech freedoms:

Why Divine Revelation (Scripture) condemns homosexuality. Why do homosexual activists become so upset when their lifestyle is called into question? – thechristianmessage.org

It's a sad day for our United States when weak kneed politicians from both Houses of Congress tolerate the molesting lies of scandal ridden and ID fraud aka Obama. Yet, when a celebrity properly speaks his mind in free speech fashion; that man is "shot" down for exercising his God-given First Amendment rights.

Pastor Chuck Baldwin’s Facebook comment (4/21/13):

<<<<<<< A reader recently accused me of “bashing” my fellow pastors and said that what I am writing sounds “hateful.”

I realize that not everyone who reads my columns and posts is truly familiar with me. I have been in the Gospel ministry my entire adult life. If one includes my ministerial training days, that means for over four decades. I am not an outsider; I am not a novice. I’ve been around pastors all of my life. I know how they think, what they read, how they spend their “off” days, and what makes them tick.

I believe I am more than qualified to address the “pastor problem” that we have today. I know that there are many great patriot-pastors out there; but I also know that overall, they are far and few between. The vast majority of today’s pastors are unwilling to even look at the responsibility they have to resist evil government. They are as guilty as the pastors in Germany who did nothing to resist, or who even helped facilitate, Hitler’s rise to power. And I will NOT give them a pass!

Pastors are God’s watchmen and the nation’s spiritual shepherds. If they choose to ignore their responsibility to warn the people of the attacking wolves that are devouring our liberties, they are the enemies of freedom AND SHOULD BE IDENTIFIED AS SUCH. At the same time, I am trying to educate and inspire Christian men and women in the pews to stop assisting these spineless pastors. If the pulpit will not lead, the pew must! Nothing I say is motivated by hate; everything I say is motivated by LOVE–especially MY LOVE FOR LIBERTY! >>>>>>>> – chuckbaldwinlive.com/

Approximately 800 pastors out of 15,000 in Nazi Germany stood as faithful pastors. How many Christian pastors are doing that today, standing against the corrupted Obama government and functioning as Christ's disciples?

Excerpt:

<<<<< Forgive me, but when I hear these pastors and Christian leaders bewail the conditions of America, I get kind of sick. If they would stop supporting this out-of-control federal leviathan that is swallowing our liberties, if they would stop preaching their pansy, don’t-make-anybody-mad sermonettes, if they would stop sucking up to these corrupt politicians, most of the problems they complain about would not exist. >>>>>> – chuckbaldwinlive.com/

Chuck Baldwin to apathetic and lethargic Christians: Preaching the Gospel by itself will not save America

Pic of the late Pastor Jerry Falwell who was to a large extent a motivating  factor (with his organization, "The Moral Majority) to influence Christians to get "out the vote."

This web author is convinced that America is in deep spiritual and economic trouble because Christian leaders and their followers are playing church rather than living as energetic disciples of Christ. America’s notorious White House occupier would not have come to influence and power had it not been for the ignorant and arrogant Christian voting bloc. Note also: “America’s voting electorate returned to swallow Obama’s political vomit.”

Christians and especially their Christian leaders (pastors) have allowed themselves to be hog-tied by their perspective church bodies and religious affiliations  They’ve believed the the (lying)  myth of “Separation of church and state.”

The following, (excerpt of a message) is that of a Christian pastor who has led by example.  Please read the excerpt, look at the pics and read the captions – and, finally click on the link for the whole timely message:

Chuck Baldwin: Christian It’s Time To Vote With Your Feet – hwnsurf.me/2013/02/22/

Excerpt:

<<<<<<<<<< One of the most glaring differences between Colonial and modern America is the attitude of our pastors.

In 1770-1776 (and actually for many years previous to this period), Colonial pastors (of all denominations) lit the fire of freedom in the hearts of their congregants like no generation has ever seen–before or since. The British Crown was so frustrated with these patriot-pastors that they coined a moniker for them. They were called, “The Black (or Black-Robed) Regiment.” In truth, Colonial pastors were more influential in the “holy cause of liberty” (Patrick Henry) from their pulpits than any military regiment on the battlefield. And, yes, many pastors in Colonial America also fought on the battlefields in our War for Independence.

By and large, today's American Christian pastors are gutless. They do not utilize their God-given First Amendment citizen rights to speak out against the rampant culture's sinful political corruptions.

By and large, today’s American Christian pastors are gutless. They do not utilize their God-given First Amendment citizen rights to speak out against the rampant culture’s sinful political corruptions.

Today’s pastors, on the other hand, are mostly noted for saying absolutely NOTHING about the attacks that are currently being waged against our liberties. And when I say NOTHING, I mean absolutely NOTHING. About the only thing they seem to be able to do is pass out some slanted “voter guides” every Presidential election. But most don’t even do that. A few (a very few) will encourage their congregations to protest abortion; some (again, a very small number) will preach a “pro-life” sermon on “Sanctity of Life” Sunday each January. But most deliberately and stubbornly refuse to take a public position on any subject that has the air of being “political.”

Should we really wonder why our country is teetering on the precipice of oppression and slavery? ……..

……..Pastors are depicted as being shepherds. Is it not then the central duty of the pastor to be willing to fight and die for the protection of his people? When he sees the wolves approaching, does he run away and leave the sheep to the slaughter or does he confront the wolves and fight to the death to protect them?

Ladies and gentlemen, the wolves are attacking the flock! Those mangy, mad, maniacal monsters are attacking the lives and liberties of the American people (including the Christian people in our churches) with a vengeance. When they attempt to strip us of our right to defend ourselves with arms, they are attacking the very lives and liberties of our homes and families. Life is a precious gift of Almighty God, and anyone who would make our children and families vulnerable to death and destruction by wicked and evil men is tantamount to a mad wolf that attacks the life of a little lamb.

How dare our shepherds (pastors) stand silent and mute in the face of such evil? How dare they refuse to sound the alarm? How dare they piously proclaim that God “has not called” them to perform this most fundamental duty of a shepherd? Does not their refusal to fight, does not their silence, does not their fear and inaction prove that they are not really shepherds at all, but merely hirelings? I believe so

And knowing that what I am about to say will be misinterpreted by some, I say it still: preaching the Gospel, by itself, will NOT save America. And these preachers who hide behind the mantra that the only thing God has called them to do is preach the Gospel, and that only preaching the Gospel will save America, are either themselves seriously deluded or are despicable cowards hiding behind the veil of pretended spirituality.

America has had more Gospel preaching during the last 50 years than any nation in history. There are more churches, more Christian schools, more Gospel radio and television programs, more missionary endeavors, more inner-city missions and shelters, more Bible publications, and more Gospel influence in America during the last 50 years than in any country in the history of the world.

And what has happened to America over the last 50 years? Our historic Christian culture has been turned into rank hedonism and licentiousness; legal abortion has taken the lives of over 60 million innocent unborn babies; a blatant police-state is proliferating; more babies are being born out of wedlock than at any time in history; and now we are facing the tyrannical attempt to ban and confiscate America’s premier self-defense tool: the semi-automatic rifle. And all of this happened, and is happening, while hundreds of thousands of pastors and churches across the land “preach the Gospel.”

Again I say, preaching the Gospel, by itself, will not save America. Christians have to be taught how to understand; how to discern the difference between good and evil; the principles of law and justice; jurisdictional authority; and the principles of Christian resistance. As long as pastors refrain from teaching these essential and necessary truths, our nation will continue its slide into tyranny and oppression–all the Gospel preaching going forth notwithstanding………… >>>>>>>>>>>>>

The History Of Flag Day

The History Of Flag Day – The Fourth of July was traditionally celebrated as America’s birthday, but the idea of an annual day specifically celebrating the Flag is believed to have first originated in 1885. BJ Cigrand, a schoolteacher, arranged for the pupils in the Fredonia, Wisconsin Public School, District 6, to observe June 14 (the 108th anniversary of the official adoption of The Stars and Stripes) as ‘Flag Birthday’. In numerous magazines and newspaper articles and public addresses over the following years, Cigrand continued to enthusiastically advocate the observance of June 14 as ‘Flag Birthday’, or ‘Flag Day’…… – usflag.org/

Media Madness – Censor Omission of Massive Catholic Obamacare Lawsuits

Shameless Bias By Omission – “You’d think the largest legal action in American history in defense of religious liberty would be a major news story. But ABC, CBS, and NBC don’t judge news events by their inherent importance as relates to the future of our freedoms. They deliver the news according to a simple formula: Does it, or doesn’t it, advance the re-election of Barack Obama?……. – mrc.org/

Bozell Statement: On and On It Goes: Networks Cover ‘Predator Priests’ As They Stay Silent on Catholic Liberty Lawsuits – The broadcast networks stubbornly pushed ahead, logging another 24 hours — now we’re at four straight days — ignoring the Catholic lawsuits against the Obama administration. And once again on Thursday night, instead of covering this historic lawsuit championing religious freedom, the CBS Evening News offered another two and a half minutes to a “massive coverup” of Catholic sex abuse in Philadelphia. That’s five minutes on Catholic abuse charges to 19 seconds on Catholic religious freedom. ABC and NBC are still silent, completely silent….. – mrc.org/

Evangelicals respond to Catholic lawsuits:  We are all Catholic now’ WASHINGTON, D.C., May 22, 2012, (LifeSiteNews.com) – The Obama administration’s HHS mandate has united Christians of all stripes – evangelical, historical Protestant, and Roman Catholic – as they close ranks behind a flurry of lawsuits filed yesterday morning to overturn the controversial measure and stall government interference in religion.

After 43 Catholic institutions – including the major archdioceses, dioceses, universities, and publishing houses affiliated with the Church in the United States – filed a dozen lawsuits to strike the measure down on First Amendment grounds, the Christian and conservative communities quickly applauded the move.

President Obama with Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius, who is behind the controversial birth control mandate. “I have said ‘We are all Catholic now,’ and this is why,” said Concerned Women for America (CWA) President Penny Nance. “The religious community stands together in the belief that this contraception, chemical abortion, and sterilization mandate would force us to pay for something many of us believe is morally repugnant.”

The fact that Catholic religious institutions filed the lawsuits provided “more evidence that the healthcare law is extremely flawed in its bias for abortion and abortion-inducing drugs,” said Americans United for Life President and CEO Dr. Charmaine Yoest. “This lawsuit is only beginning, as many Americans are deeply troubled by the largest expansion of abortion since Roe v. Wade.” ………… – lifesitenews.com/

Remembering Our Fallen Heroes – Honoring Their Memory and Sacrifice

“Memorial Day” – Memorial Day previously called Decoration Day is a day of remembrance for those who have died while serving in the military of the United States. In 1971, Memorial Day was declared a national holiday by an act of Congress and the date to observe the holiday was set as the last Monday in May.

“…..Today is the day we put aside to remember fallen heroes and to pray that no heroes will ever have to die for us again. It’s a day of thanks for the valor of others, a day to remember the splendor of America and those of her children who rest in this cemetery and others. It’s a day to be with the family and remember….. — Ronald Reagan – conservapedia.com/
