Despair Or Hope Computer Keys Showing Hopeful or Hopeless

No matter what happens in the government, courts, culture, or elections, don’t despair!

Each day, SaveCalifornia.com knows our purpose — on every issue, to stand tall and true for all that is good and right in God’s sight, and to help others do their part alongside us – no matter the opposition or the outcome.

If you’re a pro-family citizen, this is part of your purpose too. Because shining the light of Truth is what we are each called to do.

But if you’re discouraged about the just-concluded election, here’s some good news to lift you up. Please keep looking up and be responsible to love God and love people alongside SaveCalifornia.com, so that together we will persevere and bear more fruit in the days to come.

Here are 3 current events and 2 timeless truths to give you hope:

1. Supreme Court likely to take up marriage licenses and states’ rights
This week’s pro-real-marriage, pro-states-rights ruling from a federal appeals court in Ohio makes it highly likely that the U.S. Supreme Court will take this and other cases to resolve the legal conflict. This could result in the upholding of state constitutional amendments reserving marriage licenses for one man and one woman, including California’s Proposition 8. Read more

2. Supreme Court will hear new ObamaCare challenge
Today’s good news means hope to roll back tyranny. The nation’s high court will take up four separate lawsuits challenging the constitutionality of a key aspect of ObamaCare. At specific issue is whether it is legal for the federal government to create a state-based “exchange” instead of abiding by the law which specifies only states themselves may establish these “exchanges.” Read more

3. California Democrats denied supermajority
Although the Republican leadership seems to eschew moral and social issues now, on Election Day we saw the net increase of three Republican seats in the Assembly and 1 more seat in the state Senate, which means Republicans have stopped the Democrats from regaining a 2/3rds supermajority that could directly raise taxes on families.

4. Union members don’t have to support immoral candidates
If you’re disgusted with government unions and private unions supporting immoral candidates and issues, the most important things pro-family union members can do is resign from the union and stop believing the lie that union membership is a condition of employment. Find out how

5. If you feel like a loser, change your mind to that of a winner
Teddy Roosevelt was a sickly child who probably felt like a loser. But due to the leadership and challenge of his father, young Theodore, Jr. build up his body and became one of the most energetic public and moral men in the modern history. Read about his transformation

My brothers and sisters, consider it nothing but joy when you fall into all sorts of trials, because you know that the testing of your faith produces endurance. And let endurance have its perfect effect, so that you will be perfect and complete, not deficient in anything.
James 1:2-4 NET Bible

Homosexuals have another head on their stick

Thursday, April 3, 2014, 7:25 pm | Randy Thomasson


Showing their disdain for freedom of speech, freedom of religion, and freedom of association — the values of the First Amendment to the Constitution of the United States — homosexual activists have pressured Mozilla (maker of the Firefox web browser) CEO Brendan Eich to resign because he knows real marriage is only for a man and a woman.

The barbarian homosexuals have another head on their stick.

In a statement, Mozilla admitted it was “hard” to believe in both “equality and freedom of speech.” Actually, it’s impossible to support so-called “gay rights” and religious freedom/free speech/freedom of association. Because the homosexual activists have rejected true tolerance (to agree to disagree) and instead do the exact opposite — they punish everyone who disagrees with them. That’s INtolerance.

Look at the intolerant track record of homosexual activists in California: religious rights, moral rights, parental rights, business owner rights, property owner rights, physicians’ rights, and the right of association have been and are being trampled by homosexuals.

And across America, great damage is being done by homosexuals: people of faith who are photographers, bakers, florists, and other businesspersons are having their religious freedom and personal moral values crushed by tyrannical practitioners of homosexuality.

It’s been sad to see the grovelling that Brendan Eich has been doing to try to please the unnatural, unhealthy agenda of homosexual-bisexual-transsexual activists.

My advice to people of faith and people of principle: If you stand for something (and you should do this regularly), expect opposition and don’t betray God or stop speaking or doing what you know know to be true. Because fear, self-interest, and abandonment of God’s principles is the opposite of courage, love, and faith in Him.

Enforcing Prop. 8: 1st lawsuit filed, 2nd needed

Friday, July 12, 2013, 9:43 pm | Randy Thomasson


Good news! The first lawsuit to enforce Prop. 8 was filed Friday morning, asking the California Supreme Court for injunctive relief to halt illegal, unconstitutional homosexual “marriages” in at least 56 of 58 California counties. Read these excellent arguments

As SaveCalifornia.com has been explaining to anyone who will listen, the boss of every California public official is the written state constitution, not what a judge or an elected official opines.

Every public servant swears to “support and defend” the plainly written words in California’s supreme law. Yet in the Prop. 8 legal battle, the California Constitution has been ignored by domestic enemies of our Republic.

While today’s filing with the California Supreme Court is great news, what’s also needed now to enforce Prop. 8 is a 2nd lawsuit by one or more county clerks. Why? Because this first lawsuit might not be successful, and we absolutely need to ensure success for real, man-woman marriage by doing our utmost.

ACTION: Please email, fax or call our SaveCalifornia.com’s 4 talking points to clerks in these 18 strongly pro-marriage areas. Urge them to sue the State to uphold Prop. 8 on man-woman marriage.

Why a 2nd case with a clerk suing the State of California is needed:

1. Our pro-marriage legal effort is stronger with two cases

2. The Prop. 8 legal battle is stronger with more attorneys on our side speaking in court (there will be multiple attorneys in court advocating against Prop. 8)

3. A county clerk has better chance of being recognized by the court (achieving “standing”)

4. A county clerk has better chance of winning on the merits

5. A clerk has a real conflict that the court must necessarily solve, while the petition filed today is asking the court to do a favor that may seem optional to judges; indeed, some call it a “long shot” bid

6. A clerk case would strengthen the Protect Marriage case by demonstrating to the court that the clerk quandary is real, not hypothetical

And He answered and said to them, “Have you not read that He who made them at the beginning ‘made them male and female,’ and said, ‘For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh’? So then, they are no longer two but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let not man separate.”
Jesus Christ in Matthew 19:4-6 NKJV
