Networks’ disgraceful allegations against Christian legal group

July 15, 2017

ABC, NBC and CNN  dishonestly call Alliance Defending Freedom a “hate group”

The Valley of the Sun is fortunate to have Scottsdale-based Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF) in our midst. ADF is the nation’s largest religious freedom legal advocacy organization, winning  seven cases before the U.S. Supreme Court in the past seven years.

Earlier this week, U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions addressed the group on the topic of religious freedom.  ABC, NBC and CNN networks headlined the event describing ADF as an “anti-LGBT hate group,” using information gleaned from an actual hate group, the radical, violence inciting Southern Poverty Law Center  (SPLC)— which NBC deceptively referred to as a  “prominent civil rights watchdog.”

Count on the shameless Democrats to join the dishonest tirade. DNC spokesman Joel Kasnetz was quoted as declaring, “Sessions’ appearance at this event, as the top law enforcement official in the country, brings into question whether the attorney general intends to protect all Americans.”

Some Phoenix residents are familiar with the New Times, a giveaway, left-wing tabloid, featuring soft porn ads along with its sensationalized articles blatantly targeting conservative officials. Until recently, Stephen Lemons, whose rancorous column titled, ‘The Feathered Bastard,’ was a mainstay of the tabloid, was a local resident. His final column which we addressed in,A vile goodbye from a sour Stephen Lemons,” was written in April as he prepared to move to a new gig with the disreputable SPLC in Montgomery, Alabama, befitting his extremist bent.

Kristen Waggoner was interviewed by Fox News’ Tucker Carlson Friday evening. She does an excellent job of describing the skewed news reporting of Attorney General Sessions’ speech, the mission of ADF and its many successes in the courts. She is ADF’s senior vice president of US legal advocacy and general counsel, with an impressive bio.

The Federalist provides this copy of Attorney General Sessions inspirational speech. You’ll be glad you took a few minutes to read it.

Pope Francis hurls more insults at U.S. and Pres. Trump

July 9, 2017

Seeks to marginalize President Trump over “immigration” at meeting with G20 world leaders

 The relationship between Pope Francis and the United States has often been a rocky one. This pope is clearly a Marxist, while the roots of the U.S. are grounded in liberty, respect for the rule of law and a sense of personal responsibility. Though Americans are the world’s most charitable, the pope adheres to Karl Marx’ redistributionist philosophy of “From each according to his ability, to each according to his needs, “  — not advocating charity but confiscation and redistribution from earners to takers.

He also places illegal invaders above lawful immigrants — though not at the Vatican.

Pope Francis and his minions have made clear their abhorrence of Donald Trump from his days as a candidate. The animus has only worsened since President Trump’s inauguration.

During the 2016 campaign, the pope displaying his magical powers of ESP, actually claimed the Republican front-runner, “Was not a Christian,” declaring, “A person who thinks only about building walls, wherever they may be, and not building bridges, is not Christian.”

Exhibiting a grand dose of hypocrisy, he even tried to bully Trump into submission on his campaign pledge to build a wall to secure our sovereign border. The globalist  pope claims to abhor such barriers, though he lives within the confines of Vatican City guarded by its own army of Swiss Guards, behind massive 50-foot-tall, ten-feet thick walls surrounding the impenetrable Vatican fortress.

Viewing himself as omnipotent Francis claimed Trump’s withdrawal from the Climate Change accords was a personalslap in the face.”

When Francis was scheduled to address the U.S. Congress, he first made a beeline to the repressed island of Cuba to visit Communist dictator .Raul Castro, clearly showing his preferred alliance.  Arizona Congressman Paul Gosar, a devout Catholic, opted not to attend the papal address. Read Gosar’s cogent explanation for his boycott.

Now while President Trump is interacting with world leaders at the G20 summit — even meeting with Russia’s Putin for the first time and addressing the issue of intrusion into our elections — the America abhorring pope claims,America has a distorted vision of the world.” This linked CNS news report is definitely worth your time.

Francis needs to decide if he is the spiritual leader of the Catholic Church’s estimated 1.2 billion adherents, or a radical political aspirant espousing Communism and cheering lawlessness on the world stage. With a gay and drug fueled sex scandal recently erupting within the Vatican, he should have his hands full.

He can’t have it both ways.


Remembering our many blessings this Independence Day

July 4, 2017


….and honoring those 56 brave men* who 241 years ago had the vision and strength of character to challenge authority and affix their signatures to the Declaration of Independence.  

Before signing the Declaration of Independence, our Founders included this memorable line:

“And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.”

Meanwhile, the U.K.‘s The Guardian Newspaper reports that former president Obama, speaking in his boyhood home of Indonesia, warns against taking too much pride in your country. He calls patriotism “aggressive nationalism.”

What a pleasure to once again have a patriot in the White House. This video shows the rousing support President Donald Trump received throughout his July 1, speech as he honored our service men and women at the “Celebrate Freedom Rally “held at the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC.

May God continue to bless America.

SCOTUS: Missouri  engaged in religious discrimination

June 26, 2017

Trinity Lutheran wins!

Alliance Defending Freedom, a Scottsdale-based legal organization that stands in defense of religious liberty defended this case before the US Supreme Court. ADF Lawyer David Cortman argued the case.

Excerpted from the ADF site:

Today, the Supreme Court of the United States ruled 7-2 that it is unconstitutional for the state to treat churches and other religious organizations worse than everyone else simply because they are religious.

This is great news! And it sets an important precedent to protect religious freedom. The government should never treat people of faith like second-class citizens.

Yet, that’s how the State of Missouri treated Trinity Lutheran Church when it disqualified them from receiving a non-profit playground reimbursement grant. In order to provide a safer environment for the children who attend its preschool and play on its playground, Trinity Lutheran applied for the grant, which was open to all nonprofits. And they were an ideal candidate, having been ranked fifth by the State out of 44 applicants, based on the criteria.

The State awarded 14 grants that year, but Trinity Lutheran was not among them.

Why? Because Trinity Lutheran preschool is operated by a church. Besides the fact that this was blatant religious discrimination, a majority of the children at the preschool are not members at Trinity Lutheran. On top of that, Trinity Lutheran leaves the playground open outside of school hours for children in the community to use.

Is their safety less important because they are playing on a “religious” playground? Of course not.

The Supreme Court recognized this in its decision today.  Associate Justices Sonia Sotomayor and Ruth Bader Ginsburg were the two dissenting votes. Sotomayor wrote the dissenting opinion, which follows the linked decision.


“Real men” get the recognition they deserve

Pope “slapped in the face” by Trump’s climate change exit

June 2, 2017

So let’s get this straight. The man who is the spiritual leader of the Catholic Church’s estimated 1.2 billion adherents, doesn’t have enough to keep him busy.  Meddling in American politics takes up time. He also dabbles in science. Bishop Marcelo Sanchez Sorondo, head of the Pontifical Academy of Sciences, which has hosted numerous international conferences on climate change, is not a fan of President Donald Trump. Previously discussing the Climate Change accord entered into unilaterally by Barack Obama without seeking senate authorization — and the likelihood that Trump would withdraw from the pact — Sanchez Sorondo said,  “If he really does withdraw, it would be a huge slap in the face for us.”

On Wednesday acting in the best interests of Americans, Trump did exactly that.

The Rome-based,  liberal, pseudo-scientific chorus has grown. This past March, Cardinal Peter Turkson, the pope’s point man for the environment, immigration and development, urged Trump to listen to “dissenting voices,” and reconsider his position on climate change.

Now that the U.S. has officially exited the Climate Change accords, Sanchez Sorondo said he believed the U.S. oil lobby was behind the decision and that the industry had “maneuvered” Trump. A withdrawal, said the Bishop “would not only be a disaster but completely unscientific.“ With sarcasm dripping from every word,  he asserted that “saying we need to rely on coal and oil is like saying that the earth is not round. It is an absurdity dictated by the need to make money.”

Vatican Inc. is a massive, wealthy business with astronomical assets, treasures, and its own political agenda.

The relationship between the pope, his minions and Donald Trump has been contentious since the conservative businessman first entered the presidential race. Pope Francis tried to bully Trump into submission on his campaign pledge to build a wall to secure our southern border, which the globalist pope claims to abhor — though he lives within the confines of Vatican City guarded by its own army of Swiss Guards, behind massive 50-foot-tall, ten-feet thick walls surrounding the impenetrable Vatican fortress.

In Feb. 2016, the pope went so far as to claim the Republican front-runner, “Was not a Christian.” On a return flight to Rome from a trip to Mexico, the pope said: “A person who thinks only about building walls, wherever they may be, and not building bridges, is not Christian.”

Trump, at a campaign event, responded swiftly, saying, “For a religious leader to question a person’s faith is disgraceful. No leader, especially a religious leader, has the right to question another man’s religion or faith,” Trump said.

Once again Donald Trump was right. He appears to be on a roll. His obligation to is America. The pope should stick to matters involving his own church.
