EMERGENCY: Oppose H.R. 8404’s sexual anarchy and religious oppression

Wednesday, November 30, 2022, 1:39 pm | Randy Thomasson

Your calls and emails are needed today to stop sexual anarchy and religious oppression in America. H.R. 8404 can be halted with a flood of opposition if you act now. SCROLL DOWN FOR ACTION STEPS.

Here’s the latest analysis from the pro-family legal experts at Liberty Counsel:

Same-Sex Marriage. Child Bride Marriages. No Religious Freedom.

ALL will be protected if HR 8404 as amended passes the House.

On Monday, the Senate approved an amended version of HR 8404. The amendment claims to protect religious freedom but, in fact, does nothing to protect Christians and other faithful religious adherents.

HR 8404 forces every state to accept, honor and obey the crazy “marriage” laws of any other state.

Beyond same-sex marriage, HR 8404 empowers a state to force its marriage laws upon other states and territories. A handful of states like California have no minimum age for marriage, resulting in the terrible abuse often referred to as “child bride marriage.” These marriages are often forced upon young minors who were sexually abused or forced into such relationships.

The bill has essentially no religious liberty protections. The fact that three religious liberty amendments were rejected by the Senate (proposed by Sens. Lee, Lankford and Rubio) in favor of the Baldwin-Collins amendment illustrates the open disdain the bill presents to religious freedom.

Targeting people of faith to silence them is part of the LGBTQ agenda. We continue to defend former Kentucky Clerk Kim Davis, who was specifically targeted because of her Christian faith and support of marriage between a man and a woman.

Federalizing same-sex marriage will increase this intentional targeting of religious adherents.

Moreover, HR 8404 goes far beyond same-sex marriage. It empowers one state to impose its “marriage” laws on other states, and this includes the infamous “child bride marriage” laws of California.

A religious freedom amendment does not solve the ills of HR 8404. The bill is still rotten to its core. Who could in good faith condone a 50-year-old man marrying a 10-year-old child? That is legal right now in California, and if HR 8404 passes, pedophile marriages like this will be forced on your state as well.

Because HR 8404 changes federal policy, government edicts on marriage, schools and families WILL change, and all of America will be forced in one way or another to bow to the never-ending LGBTQ political agenda.

Keep in mind, the Q in LGBTQ stands for “queer,” aka “paraphilia,” a condition described in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) covering about 500 sexual perversions, including necrophilia, bestiality and even “minor attracted persons” (pedophilia).

How to have a thankful Thanksgiving

Wednesday, November 23, 2022, 1:19 pm | Randy Thomasson
Saying Grace by Norman Rockwell, 1951

What does Thanksgiving really mean? When you turn the word around, it reads, “giving thanks.” That’s a clue, because when we thank, we thank persons, don’t we?

In the Bible, thanksgiving means Giving Thanks to God, for creating and sustaining us:

Know that the Lord, He is God;
It is He who has made us, and not we ourselves;
We are His people and the sheep of His pasture.
Enter into His gates with thanksgiving,
And into His courts with praise.
Be thankful to Him, and bless His name.
For the Lord is good;
His mercy is everlasting,
And His truth endures to all generations.

Psalm 100: 3-5

Yet many people find it difficult to be genuinely thankful to Creator God.

For some, it’s because they don’t thank Him daily. Others lack a Biblical worldview. Still others believe in thanking God, but focus more on losses, producing a sad or angry countenance.

Yet God, who wants a voluntary-love relationship with us, gave people the choice to worship Him or not, to obey or disobey, to be blessed or cursed.

By this standard, we know the difference between good and evil; that people’s sins create problems in this world; and that the God of the Bible, Who sustains us all, is good all the time.

“Thank-you therapy” pays off. When we look into the Word of God and look up, we can have thankful hearts, every day.

Want to inspire thankful hearts at your Thanksgiving table? Ask everyone to say what they thank God for — not thanking anyone or anything else — but specifically thanking God.

You’ll be surprised how, for many, thanking God is a brand-new thought — which might just be the best thought they ever had.

But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.
Hebrews 11:6

Why 3 bad California propositions passed (but 4 others didn’t)

Saturday, November 12, 2022, 3:10 pm | Randy Thomasson

Thank you for voting right in God’s sight — and helping others vote — in the November 2022 election with the help of SaveCalifornia.com.

Your good values were and are sorely needed, since so many Californians vote foolishly.

Still, more Latinos voted Republican this election. And more Californians might have voted Republican than the previous election, which will be confirmed if California Republicans pick up seats in the U.S. Congress and in the California Legislature (see the close races).

I’m relieved the two gambling-addictions-promoting propositions, 26 and 27, were rejected. I’m also happy that Prop. 29 functionally decreasing the availability of kidney dialysis clinics was stopped (for the third election in a row). And I’m glad Prop. 30 raising taxes and the cost of living “bit the dust.”

Yet it’s sad that 3 bad propositions passed (see their status):

1. Woefully-ignorant Californians don’t understand a “fetus” is a unique human being with God-given rights. So they voted to approve the baby-killing and sexual-anarchy monstrosity of Prop. 1, 65.8% to 34.2%.

2. Neither do most voters realize government schools will use any excuse to take more tax dollars to dumb down and sexually indoctrinate children. So California voters approved Prop. 28’s “art and music” perpetual “annual funding” deception, 62.5% to 37.5%.

3. Nor do Californians grasp how their Democrat state legislators don’t love children, demonstrated by their pushing a host of dangerous “recreational” drugs on California. And they hypocritically singled out “candy-flavored tobacco” businesses for extinction (which can only sell to adults 21 and older) because of the Democrat legislators’ disdain for tobacco farmers, who tend to donate to Republican candidates. So voters approved Prop. 31, which sets a precedent for Democrat politicians to destroy any small business they consider a threat to their power, 62.8% to 37.2%.

Obviously, voter approval of Prop. 1 is just awful. But the seven statewide propositions were a mixed bag, since online gambling in every home (Prop. 27) and the functional elimination of many kidney dialysis clinics (Prop. 29) would have been awful too. And both Prop. 27 and 29 were defeated, which are true moral victories.

In the big picture, true Christians must remember that success is doing what’s right in God’s sight, no matter the opposition or outcome. So if you voted biblically, you were an individual success!

Advice for the 2024 election: Concerned citizens must prioritize trying to win back the offices of county registrars of voters. Election fraud by the Democrat tyrants’ minions must end!

A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves largesse from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most benefits from the public treasury with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy, always followed by a dictatorship. The average age of the world’s greatest civilizations has been 200 years. These nations have progressed through this sequence: From bondage to spiritual faith; From spiritual faith to great courage; From courage to liberty; From liberty to abundance; From abundance to selfishness; From selfishness to apathy; From apathy to dependence; From dependence back into bondage.
