5 encouraging cultural trends in 2022

Wednesday, December 28, 2022, 4:20 pm | Randy Thomasson

With so much bad news (which is what invariably happens when people don’t obey the Word of God), are you ready for some good news?

Here are 5 encouraging cultural trends I’ve noticed this year:

Now, it’s a fact that all five upward trends are in response to the pain of the Tyrannical Left: Reaction to “transgender treatments” and drag queen shows for kids; reaction to awful Democrat bills at the U.S. Capitol; reaction to unconstitutional censorship of free speech; reaction to unscientific Covid tyranny; and reaction to the non-academic, godless government schools.

And because the White House Occupant will be there two more years, I expect more good reactions to pain in 2023 and 2024!

Horror and hope: H.R. 8404 passes, but can be overturned

If, like me, you’re grieving about the Democrats’ and RINOs’ attack upon God’s beautiful design of marriage and family, there’s hope that H.R. 8404 and more will be overturned.

Thank you if you called Republican representatives in response to SaveCalifornia.com’s alerts. We had to try, because Republicans were receiving pro-family “heat” in other states. And indeed, despite voting anti-family this summer when H.R. 8404 first passed the U.S. House of Representatives, several of these Republicans did NOT vote for it today.

First, the bad news: Among California’s 11 Republican U.S. representatives, 5 are either secret sexual anarchists or they’re so afraid of “LGBTQIA+” activists, they’ve joined them.

Demonstrating they are truly tone-deaf to pro-family citizens’ telephone calls, voting for the tyrannical, sexual anarchy bill H.R. 8404 TWICE (both December 8 and July 19) are “Republicans” Darrell Issa, Jay Obernolte, Ken Calvert, Mike Garcia, and David Valadao.

Like the New Communist Democrats, these “Republicans” are now confirmed domestic enemies of real marriage, children’s innocence, state’s rights, and constitutional religious freedom. They don’t care that H.R. 8404 forces “child bride” and “transgender” marriages upon all 50 states. See the Dec. 8, 2022 roll-call vote

But now, the good news: You can bet this will be challenged and go to the U.S. Supreme Court, where there’s actually a good chance to overturn H.R. 8404 because it violates 3 things the Constitution protects: religious freedom, states’ rights, and marriage jurisdiction.

As the constitutional attorneys at Liberty Counsel explain: “Although the House passed the ‘Respect for Marriage Act’ with a 258-169 vote that included 39 House Republicans, this action is a strategic blunder by advocates of same-sex marriage. Rather than a victory, the ‘Respect for Marriage Act’ will make easier the argument to overturn the U.S. Supreme Court’s 2015 5-4 opinion in Obergefell v. Hodges regarding same-sex marriage.”

Patience is needed as plaintiffs are either found or volunteer. As a case or cases wind through the federal courts, perseverance is especially required by religious small business owners. If you have a religious faith and are in the wedding business, please contact Liberty Counsel to explore joining a pro-bono lawsuit.

Bottom line, the House Democrats are against what’s right in God’s sight, the House Republicans hardly fought to protect us, yet the written Constitution still stands, and there might be 5 or even 6 Supreme Court justices willing to defend it. So, please stay in the battle!

“Put simply, no adult has a right to someone else’s child or another adult’s reproductive capacity. If they did, it would create obligations on the part of individuals and governments to supply sperm, eggs, and wombs to hopeful parents. But every child has a right to love and support from the mother and father who created him. … The prevailing wisdom today — rarely stated in explicit terms — is that children should be willing to sacrifice for our desires. This is exactly what happens when a child is deprived of maternal or paternal love so that adults can build the families of their dreams. Our national priority should be promoting a culture where men and women commit to one another and the families they build together, not creating fatherless (or motherless) children for the sake of adult fulfillment.”

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).
