Seattle Schools Boot Boy Scouts

Seattle Public Schools has ended its affiliation with the Boy Scouts of America.

Why would they do this? The Boy Scouts have been helping a lot of kids.

An example of the Scouts contribution to kids is in the popular outdoor education program at Garfield High School called "POST" that educates about 500 kids.

But that program is at the heart of Seattle Schools' dismissal of the Boy Scouts.

The district, in a letter, said they were booting the Boy Scouts because of concerns over "academic rigor."

Do you believe that?

Neither does anyone else.

Faux Leadership, Faux Plans And A Faux Vision

The world is ablaze with wars, rumors of wars and utter confusion around the globe---the first of its kind terrorist state (caliphate) has been carved out in Northern Iraq and Syria (ISIS), while a second terrorist state was declared this week in Nigeria (Boko Haran). Both "states" are killing people by the thousands for a variety of reasons, but mostly because they believe differently than the leaders of the "state."

The military leaders in this administration, in an unguarded moment this week, told the American people, "We have not seen anything like this before" and "It is a direct threat to America."

In the following days, after political considerations and likely some direct conversation, they walked back their statements and, as they say, "Put it in context."

However, a new West Point Center report out last night challenges the notion that the terrorist movement just materialized in the last few weeks. The Center says this has been building for the past 4 years. Remember the president called them the "jayvee team" just a few weeks ago?

Returning from vacation with the world burning, President Obama is unveiling his new Global Warming Treaty, which isn't really a treaty, rather what a treaty would look like if he could get 2/3 of the Senate to approve it.

He says he is counting on "global peer pressure" to stop global warming.

Even the New York Times seems to be questioning his thinking and timing on the matter.

And there is a greater issue that looms over this great country. What is the vision for America?

What is your vision for America? Keep in mind that if there is no vision.....

Assault On Religious Freedom Expands To Pizzas

Steve Rose is a Christian and believes it is a "good thing" to go to church.

Steve also owns Bailey's Pizza.

He, like many small business owners, is very creative.

Recently he began offering a 10% discount to people who brought in a church bulletin---indicating they had gone to church.

The assault on our freedom of religion is expanding and accelerating. Almost daily we hear of people in the wedding services business being sued, fined and put out of business because of their deeply held beliefs in biblical marriage.

Abortion advocates, including our own government, continuously try to force businesses to provide abortion pills to employees, even though the business owner believes in the sanctity of life and opposes abortion because of their religious convictions.

Now the assault on religious freedom---particularly Christianity, has expanded to food services---specifically pizza places.

An atheist organization, run by a former evangelical minister, is threatening to sue Steve Rose if he doesn't stop giving people a 10% discount because they went to church.

The charge?

Same-Sex "Marriage"- America's Ball And Chain?

A New York judge has issued a ruling after a Christian family refused to allow a same-sex couple to use their upstate family farm as a setting for their "marriage."

Cynthia and Robert Gifford have been subsidizing their farm income by renting out the farm and part of their large barn-like house for special events, including weddings.

Because they politely refused this particular "wedding" business, they have now been slapped with a $13,000 fine, with $3,000 of it going to the lesbian couple for the "anguish" they suffered by the rejection.

The Giffords and their employees must now go through a "re-education program."

A similar situation occurred at Le Blanc's Rice Creek Hunting and Recreation preserve in Minnesota.

The Christian owners supplement their income from the 1,700 acre farm by renting out the facilities for special events, including weddings.

When threatened with an expensive court trial and the possibility of fines in the thousands of dollars, they decided they did not have the money to fight the two homosexual men who were demanding the use of their property and the force of the state, so they worked out a compromise.

American Founder Patrick Henry famously said as he looked at the British ships anchored off the coast of the Colonies, "When people forget God, tyrants forge their chains."

Is the obsession with same-sex marriage, the homosexual agenda, and the laws that have been enacted to enforce the agenda becoming the ball and chain of 21st Century America?

Abortion Industry Changes Their Words But Not Their Ways

The lucrative abortion industry is in panic mode. This generation is not buying their marketing message of killing unwanted babies as a "pro-choice" act.

Planned Parenthood and their first cousins NARAL, Emily's list---you know their family, are now advocating a "pro-abortion reversal" of Roe v. Wade.

They are changing their words and their tactics.

They are now advocating the idea that abortion is a Second Amendment right, equivalent to the right to keep and bear arms.

They are dramatically changing their words and tactics, but be assured, Planned Parenthood's founder Margaret Sanger's philosophy and mission is intact. They have not departed from her eugenicist goals.

Here's the new game plan.
