Important Petitions

Tonight I will be posting some more photos of Arizona, but right now there is something important I would like to bring to your attention.

Every afternoon I listen to a program called "Jay Sekulow Live." Mr. Sekulow is an Attorney for the American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ). The ACLJ is the Christian equivalent of the ACLU. However, where the ACLU wants to eliminate all reference to Christianity from the public view, the ACLJ wants to protect the religious rights of Christians. Today a couple of important issues were discussed on the show that I would like to bring to light. You won't hear about these things in the liberal media, so word of mouth and a few conservative talk shows are your only source for learning about these important issues.

The first issue I would like to discuss is a petition to help prevent President Obama from eliminating a doctor's choice to choose not to perform abortions. President Obama has already signed new legislation that will supply taxpayer money for the study of embryonic stem cells. Essentially, he is taking my hard-earned money to fund the creation and murder of human embryos. I'm not against stem cell research. However, I am opposed to murdering innocent human beings for study. There are now scientific means available to create stem cells that imitate embryonic stem cells. So therefore, the creation and murder of innocent human embryos is no longer necessary. Of course you will never hear about this on the liberal media sources.

Now President Obama wants to prevent doctors from having the right to say "No" to performing abortions, regardless of their religious or moral beliefs. This is outrageous! How would you feel if a law was enacted that said you had to murder a human being despite your beliefs about it? Before this legislation is approved, President Obama is allowing 30 days of "discussion." Of course I'm certain you haven't heard this issue discussed on the news. This way, the President can give the appearance that he gave time for the public to present their opinion without really making the issue known; therefore, no response will be given. Well, it is up to us to spread the word. I encourage you to click on the link below and sign the petition to make your voice heard. Tell President Obama we don't want our doctors to be forced to do something against their moral and/or religious beliefs.

Another important issue I would like to bring to your attention is something happening at the United Nations. The Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC) is trying to create a resolution that would essentially allow the persecution of Christians if they spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

I believe that everyone has a right to practice the religion of their choice (including atheism) assuming no other human is injured or killed because of someone else's religious beliefs. However, the OIC wants to ensure that worldwide, it would be illegal to speak against Islam in any way. So essentially, any time you preach the Gospel or speak about any other belief system (Jew, Hindu, Buddhist, etc.), the UN could declare that this speech is against Islam, hence it is illegal. Last year the OIC tried to get this passed through the UN and because of a petition submitted by the ACLJ, the issue was dismissed. Now they are trying it again. It is up to us to make our voices heard. The OIC wants to make Islam the moral law of the world. This is the same "moral law" that encouraged a group of Muslims in Egypt to burn a man alive and kill his father because they had heard a rumor that this man was involved with a Muslim woman. Just a rumor! And they burned this man alive and murdered his father too! I don't know about you, but this is not the kind of "moral law" I want enforced in this country. Please let the United Nations know that we will not tolerate the Islamic "moral law." Please follow this link and sign this petition.

I usually try and keep my posts light-hearted but these issues are something I cannot just dismiss. If we don't stand up for our freedoms, who will?
