R-71, Rob McKenna, Hugh Hefner and Congressional Atheists

It's Friday.

I have 3 things I felt might be of interest to you. Also, please note that we published the first Elway Survey on homosexual "marriage" in Washington State late yesterday afternoon.
  • *R-71, Rob McKenna and what the judge said about the 138,000 citizen's names who signed the Protect Marriage petitions.

  • *Hugh Hefner and NBC's" Playboy Club".

  • *How many atheists do you think serve in the US Congress?
Be sure to participate in our GOP presidential poll. It will come down on Monday.

First, Judge Benjamin Settle says he will rule on whether the R-71 signers names should be released within the next 2 weeks.

Katie Blinn, Sec. Reed's co-director of Elections told David Ammons, Reed's publicity person, that she "is optimistic" the judge will release the names to the homosexual activist groups.

Reed and McKenna continue to stand with the Washington Coalition for Open Government and the homosexual activist group Washington Families Standing Together in demanding the names be released to the several homosexual activist organizations waiting for them.

We will keep you posted on this matter.

Second. Playboy founder Hugh Hefner says he thinks he knows why the show failed. Saying that "fans are really upset" about the cancellation. What fans? He said, "I'm sorry NBC's 'Playboy Club' didn't find it's audience...it should have been on cable."

Or, perhaps, the idea of an old man living with young girls in a filthy old mansion and the culture that gave birth to Hefner and his porn empire is so not interesting that even NBC can't resuscitate it. And maybe there are more than a few people who have a sense of morality and no time for that level of trash on network television.

Perhaps NBC is intoxicated on their own social agenda and can't find the line in the center of the road.

Side note: ABC's "Dancing With The Stars" continues to rank considerably below previous years ratings.

Third. Do you know how many atheists serve in the US Congress?

The Secular Coalition of America (SCA), an atheist activist organization, claims there are 28 atheists in Congress. "But," they say "27 of them are in the closet." Only Rep. Pete Stark D-Calif., has come "out."

SCA President Herb Silverman says, "We don't 'out' people."

Freedom From Religion Foundation, the folks who put up the "I don't believe in God" signs, co-president Annie Laurie-Gaylor says, "It has never been better to be a free thinker or an agnostic in America."

While Ms. Gaylor, Mr. Silverman and others struggle, in and out of the closet, to free themselves from religion, the words of someone else comes to my mind.

He taught, "Those whom the Son sets free, are free indeed."

Jesus Christ taught us that it isn't necessary to fight religion, hide in a closet or mock God to be free.

Accept Jesus Christ as the resurrected Son of God and He will set you free from the restraints of both destructive sin and man-made "religion." He will build your life from the inside out.

Think about it. Have a great weekend.

Be Vigilant. Be Discerning. Be Prayerful. Be Blessed. Be Free.
