Arizona democrat legislator and ordained Presbyterian minister Stephanie Stahl-Hamilton (official bio under link) has been exposed as the thief who has furtively been hiding Bibles under furniture cushions, and even in the refrigerator, in the members-only state capitol lounge. Her odd actions were discovered by security cameras.
When revealed, the member of the Appropriations and Natural Resources, Energy & Water committees described her bizarre antics as “playful.”
Why is the married mother of three, a supporter of what she cagily calls “abortion care,” playing when she has to do a job on behalf of her constituents? The Tucson democrat, who opposes parental educational choice benefiting their own children, has signed on as co-sponsoring a long list of bills, but is not the primary sponsor on a single one of them. Fortunately, she doesn’t have time.
This is the 3-page letter, dated April 10, 2023 — all pages accessed by using sidebar arrows — from Congressman Jim Jordan (R-Ohio, CD4) to FBI Director Christopher Wray exposing the “shocking information.” Jordan boldly ends his letter with the following words:
“Accordingly, and in light of your disregard for our earlier voluntary requests, please find attached a subpoena for the requested documents and information.”
The article included this odd quote: “Pope Francis, the head of the Anglican Communion and a top Presbyterian minister together denounced the criminalization of homosexuality and said gay people should be welcomed by their churches.”
We are not familiar with efforts by churches to exclude anyone from religious services, “criminalize” them or restrict their participation within houses of worship. For the religious leaders to zero in on this topic is insulting to all of their church members. Although the Church of Scotland allows same-sex marriages, Catholic teaching holds that gay people must be treated with dignity and respect accorded others, though homosexual acts are “intrinsically disordered.” The Biblical city of Sodom was destroyed due to the prevalence of sodomy.
According to Catholic Answers, the Catholic Church teaches that such acts are always violations of divine and natural law. An explicit condemnation is found in the book of Leviticus (18:22, 20:13): “You shall not lie with a male as with a woman; it is an abomination…If a man lies with a male as with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination; they shall be put to death, their blood is upon them.”
It’s 2023. No one Is advocating death, but abstinence, in accordance with God’s law. Has political correctness caused religious leaders to abandon or forget their moral duty?
GOP Sen. Kennedy holds Biden’s judicial nominee’s feet to the fire
The Obiden-Harris administration has nominated democrat San Francisco County Superior Court Judge Rita F. Lin to fill a vacancy on the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California. As is frequently the case, her ethnicity and gender take precedence over her credentials. The announcement notes that if confirmed, Lin would be the second Asian Pacific American woman, and first Taiwanese American woman on the district bench.
Republican Louisiana Sen. John Kennedy, delving deeper, questioned her about her previous incendiary opinions regarding members of the Christian Coalition.
Rita Lin, salivating over the prospect of a federal judgeship, says she no longer believes members of the Christian Coalition are “bigots,” something she asserted in an essay when she was a senior at Harvard. “This is what you said, and I quote, your words not mine,” Kennedy stated, ‘”The problem with the Christian Coalition is not that they are Bible thumpers, but that they are bigots.’ Did I quote that correctly?”
Lin responded that the Louisiana senator did quote her correctly but that she does not agree with those statements today.
“I did write that when I was 20 years old…. I do want to be clear. I do not agree with that today. I wrote that before I went to law school, before I had any kind of….”
“You were a grown woman when you wrote this,” Kennedy interjected as he noted that Lin was a junior at Harvard at the time of publication. Despite her notorious bigotry, she was accepted to and graduated from Harvard Law School.
A far-left democrat who previously represented Pres. Trump despising Lambda Legal, Judge Lin was appointed to the Superior Court bench in 2018 by Gov. Jerry ”Moonbeam” Brown. As an incumbent, Lin was the only candidate to file and won the position by default when the election was canceled. Lambda Legal is not appeased, claiming the Biden administration fell short on LGBTQ+ representation.
Watch Sen. Kennedy’s interview of Judge Lin:
Although Lin disclosed she suffers from a hearing loss resulting from a childhood illness, she pointedly omitted that her radical biases made her agreeable to both Jerry Brown and Joe Biden. Her polished-up Fact Sheet omits any personal information.
The radical local newspaper has inexplicably given a pass to its leftist editorial board member and columnist Elvia Diaz as she spews venomous anti-Semitic rants. Reaching into a non-comparison bag of dirty tricks, Diaz, the unconcealed promoter of illegal alien invaders, attempts to make the case for the Biden administration’s latest absurdity: Paying $450,000 to individual illegals for the “pain and suffering” they endured as they invaded the United States. Of course Diaz, who explicitly despises Republicans, blames President Trump for “forcibly taking children from their parents.” It is a stale and contrived deceit since illegal parents often paid drug cartel members to transport their children, (brief, shocking video) who were abused and molested, but provided a network for other relatives to enter the U.S. through a process known as “family reunification.”
Reviling Republican Senators Chuck Grassley (Iowa) and Rick Scott (Florida) who take exception to this massive taxpayer payout to illegal invaders, Diaz opines:
“Would Grassley, Scott and all the other Republicans screaming bloody hell to any compensation say the same thing if these mostly Central American migrants were, for instance, Jews fleeing Nazi Germany?
Would the Republicans say the same thing if these migrants separated from their children were, for instance, people from Israel fleeing to save their lives?”
Therevolting comparisonshould be enough to ensure this out-of-the-closet anti-Semite is handed her walking papers. The illegals she so generously wants to gift with nearly a half million dollars each, were not fleeing Nazi extermination camps, gas chambers, state endorsed torture, forced labor and imposed starvations or mass live burials.
The local Anti-Defamation League (ADL) recentlydemanded the Chandler Unified School District take actionover anti-Semitic comments made by an attendee at a recent governing board meeting. While no level of anti-Semitic hatred is acceptable, Diaz’ hate filled spew is far more egregious and reaches many more people than those in a single room in Chandler.
The Phoenix ADL office needs to address this vicious assault by an editorial board member of the increasingly radicalized Arizona Republic newspaper.
Since the Pope’s Catholicism is considered beyond doubt, the question, “Is the Pope Catholic,” is normally considered the height of irony.
We raise it today since Pope Francis, the head of the Catholic Church and the sovereign of the Vatican city/state within Rome, recently welcomed Joe Biden to the Vatican as Biden was on his way to the EU Summit meeting — where he ultimately joined with European members endorsing punishing tax rates on job creating corporations. The world’s highest ranking Catholic men, one of whom is the second U.S. Catholic president, discussed climate change, income inequality and other topics reaching paramount status on the agenda of the left. They also joked about their ages — Francis, nearing 85, and Biden, soon to turn 79 — and drinking, a topic not unknown to the former Argentine bar bouncer Pope.
Among the inanities, Biden asked Francis, “How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you were?”
Neither Joe Biden, nearly 79, nor Pope Francis, soon to be 85, are scientists or medical doctors. They are both leftists, and as such are proponents of the debated issue known alternatively as climate change or global warming. Climate change is much preferred since it cuts a wider swath including global cooling, wildfires, droughts, floods or other phenomena that have been recorded throughout history. Francis gave an encyclical on ecology, declaring that climate change is real and mainly “a result of human activity.” The problem is urgent, he said. “Never have we so hurt and mistreated our common home as we have in the last two hundred years.”
The United States is just over two hundred years since its founding, making Francis’ words appear to be a pointed barb. Given that no nation was mechanized then, his time frame is more than odd. These two wizards will also discuss the Covid-19 pandemic.
The duo will meet at the Vatican Oct. 29 to discuss things over which they have no control, though it would seem the pope would use the opportunity to dissuade Catholic Biden from his pro-abortion stance, since a pro-life position is a basic tenant of the faith.
In June, the U.S. Catholic bishops overwhelmingly approved the drafting of a “teaching document” that many hope will rebuke Catholic politicians, including Biden, for receiving communion despite their support for the gruesome act of abortion.
But Biden and Francis are cunning liberals who are both more political than religious. Their agenda states the duo “will discuss working together on efforts grounded in respect for fundamental human dignity, including ending the COVID-19 pandemic. They must have missed that abortion permanently disrespects human dignity as preborn humans are brutally ripped from what should be the safety of their mother’s uterus.
When Argentine Francis came to the United States to address congress in 2015, he stopped first in Cuba, prioritizing his meeting with Communist dictators Fidel and Raul Castro, where they warmly conversed in Spanish and dined, like old amigos.
