‘In God We Trust’ to go on police cars in California

Wednesday, April 10, 2019, 10:40 am | Randy Thomasson

Why do we have crime and corruption in our society? Ultimately, it’s because of people who don’t fear their Creator and Judge. This is why most crimes happen when a perpetrator thinks no one is watching.

So rejoice that a California city has approved “In God We Trust” for police cars!

On April 2, the City of Delano, which is one of 136 California cities and counties that already have “In God We Trust” on their main buildings, voted to also display the United States of America’s national motto on the sides of police vehicles in their 53,000-population city, just inside the northern border of Kern County.

The driving force behind the council vote to honor God on police vehicles was Delano pastor David Vivas. “I’ve read where law enforcement agencies in other states have done this,” said Vivas, who teaches at World Harvest International Church. “As a patriotic American, I believe this is appropriate to have these decals placed on police vehicles.”

The movement to place “In God We Trust” on government buildings began in 2001 with Jacquie Sullivan, a Bakersfield, California city councilwoman. In 2002, the Bakersfield City Council voted to require all government buildings to display “In God We Trust” somewhere on each building. Then, with Jacquie’s vision, the “In God We Trust” movement “took off.”

“There are 136 cities and counties in California that are displaying ‘In God We Trust’ in their council chambers,” Sullivan said. Her website lists 683 local governments nationwide that unashamedly and prominently display our national motto honoring God.

Stop and think of the advantages of honoring God on police vehicles. Morality is doing what’s right in God’s sight despite opposition or when you know no one’s looking. But God’s always watching, right? But what’s going to sensitize people to remember this spiritual fact? See how “In God We Trust” on police cars is a stellar anti-crime and anti-corruption reminder for both gangs and cops?

If you agree that belief in, fear of, and love for God is the ultimate crime-prevention program, please urge your city councilmembers to vote to display “In God We Trust” in city council chambers (it’s easy: just email them and attach Jacquie Sullivan’s website). If “In God We Trust” is already being displayed, ask that it also go on police vehicles, like in Delano. This is as constitutional as our paper money and coins.

“Delano made history and this will set precedence for other law enforcement agencies in California who may have been thinking of doing this,” Vivas said. “Not everyone believes in God, but we can all be patriotic as Americans in being supportive of our national motto.”

Then I saw another angel flying in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach to those who dwell on the earth—to every nation, tribe, tongue, and people—saying with a loud voice, “Fear God and give glory to Him, for the hour of His judgment has come; and worship Him who made heaven and earth, the sea and springs of water.”
Revelation 14:6-7

Why the establishment doesn’t want you to see ‘Unplanned’

Monday, April 8, 2019, 11:10 am | Randy Thomasson

As “Unplanned” filled our eyes and ears on the big screen, I saw women in the audience grabbing Kleenex boxes. Similarly touched, my eyes got watery several times.

Afterward, in the theater corridor, I talked with a man who saw “Unplanned” with me. He said it’s obvious how abortion dehumanizes babies. He also said his wife is pro-abortion. I encouraged him to invite his wife to see “Unplanned” and to reward her with dinner out.

Before exiting the theater’s front doors, I talked with a wheelchair-bound theater employee. His slurred speech indicated he had cerebral palsy. I encouraged him to see “Unplanned” because there are evil forces that don’t want him to see it, and they’re the same dark forces who think it was wrong for him to be born. With a big grin on his face, he said he would see “Unplanned.”

After personally experiencing this historic film, I now know why the “progressive” Left is so opposed to teenage girls seeing “Unplanned.” It’s the very same reason why the “Motion Picture Association of America” (MPAA) slapped ‘Unplanned’ with an unfair R rating. You see, the Left just doesn’t want girls, aged 13, 14, 15, and 16, to see the truth about abortion. Yet the government schools tell these same girls they expect them to have sex and that abortion is acceptable.

Bottom line, they don’t want teenage girls to:

  • Recognize that the “fetus” is a separate person, not mere “tissue”
  • See the ultrasound of a baby in the womb, being killed via suction abortion
  • Witness the stomach-churning, blood-curdling effects of swallowing abortion pills
  • Observe the money-grubbing lies of Planned Parenthood abortionists
  • Remember the bloody reality of Planned Parenthood killing centers

Because if teenage girls — and their parents — saw these facts, there would be fewer abortions and more Planned Parenthood abortuaries would close. And Planned Parenthood wouldn’t like that, would they?

You can’t watch “Unplanned” without opposing abortion. I think its high point was showing a baby in the womb (via computer animation) being dismembered and suctioned out in a tube. Not since seeing a real abortion in 1984’s The Silent Scream have I or so many people seen an abortion depicted on the big screen, as in “Unplanned.” I was again shocked by the eviscerating inhumanity of abortion.

Another thing that “Unplanned” impressed upon me is how Planned Parenthood abortionists are trying to redefine femininity to mean women should kill their babies, instead of give birth to their babies. That’s the whole point of Planned Parenthood’s killing business. And it’s the whole point of the color pink at Planned Parenthood political rallies with female Democrat politicians at their side.

What’s more, “Unplanned” strongly suggests that being pro-abortion is a soul problem — that it requires industrial-strength denial to support the killing of innocent boys and girls, in the same place all of us once were — our mother’s womb. Yet “Unplanned” unleashes a barrage of compassionate facts against this denial, opening the mind to Planned Parenthood’s barbaric practices.

Spiritually, the devil is very happy with abortion in America. As the Savior of the world, Jesus Christ, said in John 10:10, “The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy.” “Unplanned” can help Americans repent of supporting abortion and voting for abortion. Otherwise, how can God bless America? As Creator God repeatedly says in His Word, the bloodguilt of a nation is a terrible sin. 

If you’ve been mortified by photos or videos of piles of dead bodies and the crematoriums at Nazi concentration camps, you can’t help but sense the same demonic spirit of Planned Parenthood that’s seen in “Unplanned.” It’s sobering to realize that the U.S. abortion industry has murdered 61 million pre-born babies since 1973’s Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton Supreme Court opinions.

Please see “Unplanned.” You can boost its box-office numbers and help expose Planned Parenthood’s modern-day atrocities. You’ll be energized in your pro-life, pro-family values. And if you take them with you, most persons who call themselves “pro-choice” will have their minds forever changed.

“When I’m asked today what someone might have said to get me to change my mind about having either abortion, I tell them it would be this: ‘What do you think would disappoint your parents most? To find out that you’d gotten pregnant, or to learn that you had taken the life of their grandchild?'”

Why every female should oppose transsexuality

Thursday, February 28, 2019, 9:30 am | Randy Thomasson


“Transgender” athletes in school sports are making the news again. And it’s your opportunity to easily explain to people the harm of allowing boys to masquerade as girls.

In the above photograph of the runners, two biological boys (the two black boys on the left) won first and second place in the 55-meter dash earlier this month. These boys, who say they’re transgender and call themselves “girls,” beat all the girls running, turning the biological girls into losers.

It is so unfair to allow boys to compete in athletics against girls. Here’s why“Male athletes have a higher ratio of muscle mass to body weight, which allows for greater speed and acceleration. This explains why female speed records in running and swimming are consistently 10 percent slower than men’s, and why, on average, they have two thirds of the strength of men.”

The transgender lie is so obvious, that tennis star Martina Navratilova, a self-proclaimed “lesbian,” says permitting biological males (both adolescents and adults) to compete in women’s sports is “cheating” and “insane.

“To put the argument at its most basic,” she wrote this weekend in an op-ed for the Sunday Times of London, “a man can decide to be female, take hormones if required by whatever sporting organisation is concerned, win everything in sight and perhaps earn a small fortune, and then reverse his decision and go back to making babies if he so desires.” Source

“It is surely unfair on women who have to compete against people who, biologically, are still men. I am happy to address a transgender woman in whatever form she prefers, but I would not be happy to compete against her.” Navratilova, who became a target for abuse after coming out as gay in 1981, said she deplored the “tyranny” of transgender activists who “denounce anyone who argues against them.” Source

For speaking this biological truth, Navratilova has been kicked off an advisory board for “LGBT” athletes.

Every woman and girl who supports equal opportunity for women or women’s sports should oppose the unnatural transsexual agenda. For when adolescent boys and men pretend to be women, the real women always lose.

Who voted to impose this unfair policy upon all California K-12 public schools?

Signed by Governor Jerry Brown in 2013 after passage by 46 Democrats in the State Assembly and 21 Democrats in the State Senate, AB 1266 requires all K-12 public schools to permit biological boys in girls’ restrooms, showers, clubs, and sports teams; and biological girls in boys’ restrooms, showers, clubs, and sports teams. The “right” to violate these sexual boundaries is solely a self declaration of a different “gender identity.”

Passed by the majority Democrats in the California Legislature, AB 1266 tramples parents’ rights and invades the personal comfort zones of millions of children for a handful of sexually confused children who need professional counseling. Not only is transsexuality unnatural and unhealthy, AB 1266 invites blatant fraud, since there are porn-influenced boys who will try to see girls partially or fully naked by declaring themselves “female” for the day.

AB 1266 mandates this agenda and permits this abuse, reading, “A pupil shall be permitted to participate in sex-segregated school programs and activities, including athletic teams and competitions, and use facilities consistent with his or her gender identity, irrespective of the gender listed on the pupil’s records.”

“Typically females have two X chromosomes and males have an X and a Y. Mothers always pass an X chromosome on to their children. Whether your father passes on his X chromosome (leading to a pair of X chromosomes) or his Y chromosome (making a mixed set) determines your sex.”
