Christian News Update

The political gymnastics going on in Massachusetts regarding the liberal left loonie government legislators refusal to allow the people to use their God-given, democratic republic right to vote "gay" marriage out and define marriage as only a union between one man and one woman is nothing but a blatant form of anarchy being placed upon the good people of that state. The people of Massachusetts may have lost this one battle, but they aren't giving up. They are in it to win that war, no matter how long it takes!

We must not lose heart when things look bad. There is always much hope! When people rally around a cause, their voices cannot help but be heard and, eventually, heeded!

The defeat of the amnesty bill in Congress yesterday is one example. All the news shows reported that those who are against this blanket amnesty travesty of justice, burned up the phone lines to all the Senator's offices. This shows us that speaking up against legislators who obviously don't represent what their constituents really want, do not always win. If we stand strong, together, and raise our voices loud and clear, we will be heard, and, as in the case of the amnesty bill travesty, our concerns will be heeded !

The recent rally that was held in Puerto Rico is another encouraging example of citizens who refuse to be bullied into submission on an issue that they totally reject!

David Parker addresses 20,000 at massive march and rally in Puerto Rico, with blanket TV coverage, as citizens take to streets over proposed “civil unions” law!

SAN JUAN, PUERTO RICO (JUNE 10-12, 2007) David Parker addressed a rally on the steps of the Capitol building following a two-mile march through the streets of San Juan by Puerto Ricans from across the island. Police estimated the crowds at over 20,000 people. The event capped a three-day speaking tour of the island to warn Puerto Ricans about what the homosexual agenda will do in their schools and in society.

Puerto Rico’s legislature is considering a sweeping homosexual “civil unions” law, which has infuriated citizens who became energized to take swift and forceful action.

The march, rally, and David Parker’s appearances were covered extensively by all five of Puerto Rico’s TV stations, three radio stations, plus newspapers and other media.

Parker was brought to Puerto Rico by Coalicion de la Familia, the island’s largest pro-family organization, which also was the lead organizer of the rally. During his three-day stay, Parker also spoke at churches, pro-family groups, and news conferences across the island.

In April, 2005, David Parker was arrested and brought to jail over the refusal of school officials to notify him when adults discuss homosexuality or transgenderism with son in Kindergarten. The incident made national news here in America, and the continued refusal of Lexington, MA school officials has brought on a federal Civil Rights lawsuit from the Parkers and another family, the Wirthlins.

Across the island David Parker was given a hero’s welcome and Puerto Ricans were eager to hear his message. Parker warned them that elevating homosexual behavior to a status equivalent to marriage will bring a flood of homosexual books, lessons, and other indoctrination into the schools – as has happened in Massachusetts.

“You must have zero tolerance for this,” said Parker, “or they will be marketing sodomy to your children. No one has to tolerate state officials invading familial privacy, denigrating faith, and dictating their contorted view of 'morality' to impressionable children behind the backs of parents. We will continue defending the innocence of children and our parental rights to guide their upbringing -- as long as it takes."

During the rally at the Capitol steps, a group of Legislative leaders who had not been previously invited -- and had not supported the pro-family position -- reacted to the will of the people and came on to the stage and publicly pledged that they would stop the measure from moving forward.

The display of outrage by Puerto Rican citizens, which was particularly directed at the Legislature, appears to have had a big effect. The change to the civil code seems to have been put off indefinitely.

A lesson for us?
Parker observed that, compared to many Americans, the average Puerto Ricans are less afraid of name-calling by the left, and much more willing to be outspoken with the truth, and to publicly stand by their religious beliefs. This rally was unquestionably an impressive show of citizen action.


Please go to the link above to see several photos taken at the rally. See how 20,000 people showed that THEY ARE ADAMANT on this issue, they are WILLING TO (as the last photo caption states) 'draw a line in the Puerto Rican sand'!


My daughter and I recently saw the movie Evan Almighty. We went into this movie not expecting much biblical accuracy, but hoped that it would be humorous and at least have a positive message. We were both pleasantly surprised and enjoyed the movie.

I was kind of surprised to read this negative review about the movie. (Warning: might contain spoilers)

Of course, being a Hollywood made movie, there had to be a few sexual innuendos (that weren't necessary to the plot and, quite frankly, came off as awkward and out of place); but I thought it was far less offensive than "Bruce Almighty."

The author of the review has some good points, however. I guess I just wasn't expecting the movie to be accurate in portraying the Christian, biblical message, so I wasn't disappointed when it wasn't there. The "insulting to Christians" parts in the movie that are mentioned by the reviewer must have just skipped past my radar screen.

For my daughter and I, it was a light-hearted comedy with a good message (although not a gospel message) and was entertaining to watch!

ARK! (a.k.a. Acts of Random Kindness!)
