Speak since it’s true, explain because you love

Have conservatives gone underground in the liberal San Francisco Bay Area? This February 4 report from KPIX Channel 5 made me think our state should be renamed the Republik of Kalifornia:

Some East Bay conservatives say they live a secret life. They can never tell anyone what they really feel like in fear of their safety. Robert Ward is coming out conservative, but in a place he says is risky for those who share his beliefs. “If you witness what happened in Berkeley, actually they are so violent on top of it. I mean being a conservative in the Bay Area is like being a heretic,” says Ward. “You lead a double life. You can never tell your friends and co-workers.”

On the one hand, these Donald Trump supporters have reason to be afraid. We’ve all seen the violence by anarchistic leftists who want to eliminate U.S. borders. And remember how moral conservatives who donated to California’s Proposition 8 to protect marriage licenses for a man and a woman had their home addresses posted on the web? And how one of them, Mozilla co-founder Brendan Eich, was pressured to resign by the so-called “tolerant” but completely hypocritical homosexual activists?

Yet on the other hand, as our culture gets darker, there’s a greater need for people with Jesus Christ’s kingdom values to publicly shine their lights. With both soft and tough love, depending what’s needed. Truth is hard, and love is redemptive. And people who are accountable to God to “love your neighbor as yourself” (our Savior’s command) have no excuse to shut their mouths.

And from a practical standpoint, it’s a fact in modern-day America that public sympathy is aroused by public victims. Homosexual-transsexual activists, who love playing the victim, know this. Yet risking being victimized is the mark of a Christian, who can expect that “all who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution” (2 Timothy 3:12).

Indeed, the sacrificial love and loyalty to Jesus displayed by the blood shed by the Early Church overcame the Roman Empire by showing the public there was something eternally higher than ourselves to live and die for.

In any case, some Trump conservatives going underground in the Bay Area can be scary and feel threatening. But let it be a wake-up call for you to re-energize your commitment to speak out, and to articulate facts that can change minds, and to be the light for Truth that you were called to be. For in an increasingly godless culture, there are more depressed people who wonder if there’s a purpose to life.

Be a beacon of Life, demonstrating what’s true, what’s beneficial, and what’s worth fighting for!

For consider Him who endured such hostility from sinners against Himself,
lest you become weary and discouraged in your souls.
You have not yet resisted to bloodshed, striving against sin.
Hebrews 12:3-4

Anti-child abortionists want more blood money

Tuesday, January 17, 2017, 9:15 pm | Randy Thomasson


January 17, 2017 at California’s State Capitol, hundreds of abortion advocates cheered pro-abortion politicians and actors, demanding that Americans’ federal tax dollars that fund Planned Parenthood’s abortion clinics continue under President-Elect Donald Trump.

But concerned Californians need to know the truth:

1. ABORTION FUNDING: California’s Democrat politicians, in control of state government for decades, don’t want you to know that California state taxpayers are forced to provide unlimited and unrestricted taxpayer funding of abortion to Planned Parenthood and other abortionists. The result in our high-population state? One-fifth of all the abortions in the USA are performed in California.

Add to this human carnage the Democrats’ numerous laws increasing so-called “access” to abortion (sweeping in more girls and women, killing more pre-born babies, getting more money in their coffers). California taxpayers, no matter their moral position, are forced to be fiscal accomplices of this holocaust. The pro-abortion Guttmacher Institute estimates, “In 2014, some 157,350 abortions were provided in California.” That’s equivalent to 50 times the Twin Towers deaths on September 11, 2001 or 65 times the Pearl Harbor deaths on December 7, 1941.

2. WHAT ABOUT THE BABY? These pro-aborts talk about women’s “rights” (to kill) — but what about the surpassing right to life (and you don’t have any rights if you’re aborted) for the innocent baby? And what about the baby’s “choice”? These pro-aborts are silent about what they’re really doing, which is murdering millions of pre-born children in the womb.

TAKE ACTION:

1. Urge your U.S. Representative to DEFUND Planned Parenthood (call 202-225-3121)

2. See and share these inspiring pro-life videos

Q.: What is the governing force behind the abortion industry?
A.: Money. Is a very lucrative business. It is the largest unregulated industry and our nation. Most of the clinics are running chains because it’s so profitable.

A California governor who loves God and people?

and does not support or oppose candidates for public office.

Rosey Grier knows how to get good things done, and has experience resisting evil. What does it matter that he’s 84, which may be the new 74?

Former NFL linebacker with the Los Angeles Rams, author, actor, public speaker and active Christian minister Rosey Grier says he’s going to run for California governor to succeed the termed-out Jerry Brown.

Grier is a Republican who, like Ronald Reagan, left the Democrat Party when it left him on moral issues.

As the L.A. Times reports:

Earlier this year, Grier endorsed Trump for president, saying he was impressed by Trump’s business experience and support for Israel.

“I felt that we needed a businessman in the White House,” Grier said.”Our country is turning away from Israel. And you don’t turn away from Israel. Those are God’s chosen people.”

The former football star doesn’t seem to be worried an electorate in a state that overwhelmingly chose Hillary Clinton might be turned off by his support for Trump.

“If I’m not successful, it won’t be because I haven’t tried,” Grier said.

Impressive. And I’m not discounting Grier because he’s 84. When Jerry Brown leaves office in January 2019, he’ll be 80 going on 81. California’s U.S. Senator Dianne Feinstein is 83. Donald Trump will assume the presidency at age 70.

Concerned about feebleness? Remember former California Secretary of State Debra Bowen. Leaving statewide office at age 58, Bowen admitted she was an alcoholic while in the State Assembly, a drug addict in the State Senate, and that she was clinically depressed and largely absent from her duties in her second term as Secretary of State.

So if Bowen, a middle-aged liberal Democrat, could vote and otherwise act against God and family values in her feeble condition, I would be more than fine with an sharp-minded 84-year-old Christian conservative whose body isn’t what it used to be. All Grier needs to do is veto a boatload of bad bills. He could even veto bills from bed, as his namesake, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, who was wheelchair-bound and often bed-bound, did.

Do the math for the June 2018 California primary election. If it were just one reliable conservative facing off with dyed-in-the-wool, anti-family liberals such as Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom, former Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, and state Treasurer John Chiang, the conservative, with only 30-35% could be one of the top two vote-getters who goes on to the general election.

The next governor’s race is a historic opportunity to put forth a clear difference between one who relies on government and one who relies on people to do what’s right.

Multiple conservative candidates kill each other’s chances, as California’s 2016 U.S. Senate primary election proved. Several Republicans in that race resulted in two liberal Democrats going into the general election. Why not let liberals split their votes this time?

And what kind of Republican you would accept? Do you want Rosey Grier’s moral values or would you take a homosexual-bisexual-transsexual agenda “Republican” like San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer or even Peter Thiel, an openly homosexual “Republican”? Who do you trust to veto bills punishing Californians who oppose sexual perversity?

Ultimately, your religious freedom is protected only by government. I, for one, would feel much safer with a governor who I could depend on to veto any and all tyrannical bills that punish our God-given rights.

Contact Rosey Grier or Kevin Faulconer to encourage/discourage them to run

This is a faithful saying, and these things I want you to affirm constantly, that those who have believed in God should be careful to maintain good works. These things are good and profitable to men.
Titus 3:8
