Abortion is Killing!
An abortion wouldn't be necessary if the unborn child weren't alive and growing. Every "unborn child" is a GROWING CHILD. Abortionists won't tell you that. Oh how they maliciously murder and destroy such beautiful little creations of a loving God. There are couples standing in line, waiting to adopt babies; but, Planned Parenthood (Herodhood) would rather murder the little children. And all recent U.S. Presidents have given billions of dollars to Planned Murderhood. In fact, evil leaders within our government gave given $1,500,000,000 of tax-payer's money to Planned Parenthood over the past 7-years alone. This is so EVIL!!!Struggling For Life: How Your Tax Dollars and Twisted Science Target the Unborn."
...a "non-profit," tax-exempt corporation that rakes in more than a quarter-billion dollars in U.S. taxpayer money every year and boasts of being the world's largest "abortion provider."
It's called Planned Parenthood.
It is a disgusting, evil organization that somehow operates under its own set of rules – unaccountable in any way, shape or form to the rules and regulations governing other so-called "non-profits."
In fact, Planned Parenthood makes plenty of profits. It made more than $35 million in what it euphemistically calls its "surplus" in the 2003-2004 fiscal year, according to a dynamite new book by Kelly Hollowell titled "
In fact, in the last seven years alone, Planned Parenthood has earned profits – or built a surplus – of more than $350 million.
In that time period, it has been given government grants of nearly $1.5 billion.
That's what I call subsidizing the abortion industry. While, technically speaking, no U.S. taxpayer dollars are specifically allocated for abortions, Planned Parenthood performed some 1.4 million of them in that same time period. -SOURCE

Americans Have Killed over 100,000 Innocent Iraqis!
"These six things doth the LORD hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him: A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief, A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren." -Proverbs 6:16-17
What hast thou done America? I am ashamed as an American over what our nation has done to the Iraqi people. Thousands of innocent civilians have been killed, maimed, and devastated. The Bush administration appears to be guilty of all six violations in Proverbs 6:16-19 above. Who do we think we are as Americans to attack another sovereign nation? Iraq did not attack the U.S. As a matter of fact, Iraq didn't even threaten to attack the U.S. We had no God-given right, or reason, as a nation to attack Iraq! Mr. Bush and his accomplices are guilty of lying about the weapons of mass destruction. Colin Powell in February of 2001, and Condoleezza Rice in July of 2001, were recorded on video tape stating that Iraq had NO "Weapons of Mass Destruction." These truths were conveniently forgotten and covered-up after 911, when Bush and Blair decided to attack Iraq. They found no WMDs, no links to Al Qaeda, no nuclear weapons, no threat. Look what we've done to Iraq. Look at the damage from the Depleted Uranium. Our young people are being exploited as Paid Mercenaries. All in the name of freedom? Freedom for who? There is no freedom for Iraqis. America, as a nation, is guilty of first-degree murder in Iraq!
Someone, who was upset at my disproval of U.S. troops being in Iraq, asked me, "Who's side are you on?" I replied, God's side! Since when does being an American give us a right to violate the 5th commandment not to kill innocent people? America wasn't defending herself against Iraq, because Iraq never attacked us. In fact, Iraq never even threatened to attack us. The Iraqi conflict was never about freedom, but about oil resources and control. Congress never voted to go to war (as the Constitution requires), nor did the UN sanction a military attack (which is a violation of America's promise to the UN). I was disgusted when a former U.S. Marine said to me, "Well, America needs to protect it's future need for oil." What? Are you insane? Do you mean to tell me that Americans have a right to steal from other nations to benefit our future? That's exactly what he was saying. Oh how evil are the arrogant attitudes of so many Americans, who think we are a superior people--having a right to pillage and plunder other nations for our own benefit. Isn't it selfish how some people think?
The truth is that all that oil (billions of barrels), are being stolen by the global elite power-thugs to fund a New World Order. America isn't going to receive a dime. The control of the oil itself is of more value to them than the money. As the international government monopolizes all of the earth's resources, to that same degree humanity will become enslaved to them. Iran will likely be next, and much more bloodshed is inevitable, including the lives of America's youth. I know this all sounds like science-fiction; but, the facts are irrefutable. One such fact is the deceitful sterilization of millions of women by the United Nations.
By the way, I have to say this ... I am so sick of hearing about American soldiers, who are being exploited as PAID MERCENARIES, called "heroes" for killing innocent people. Heroes? The truth is that many of our young people, and their parents, blindly TRUST the decisions of government without question. This is foolish. Tragically, they are being deceived into believing that they are fighting for freedom. I'm all for defending America; but this is not about America--it's about the theft and exploitation of the United States federal government! Christians are especially at fault for having unquestionable loyalty for authority. I dare you to show me that teaching in the Word of God! You cannot! Romans 13 instructs us to obey the higher powers, which are ordained of God; BUT, we Americans also have a BILL OF RIGHTS, which grants us the rightful power to express our opinions, and to assemble in protest against our government if we don't like the way they are governing. If government doesn't listen, then the people have a right to revolt. America was FOUNDED upon this premise. There is NOTHING in the Word of God which forbids us from fighting against authority--if they cheat, lie, connive, spy, torture, destroy, and kill ... in our name ... and with our money. God has given us a RIGHT to stand up against the workers of iniquity; in fact, God commands it (Psalm 94:16; 97:10; Ephesians 5:11). Whatever happened to government FOR the people? Now it's government AGAINST the people.
Get mad at me if you want--every U.S. soldier who died in the takeover of Iraq, died in vain, because we are killing innocent Iraqis who are simply defending their homeland. Why would the Iraqi people fight so vigilantly for Saddam Hussein, if he was such a monster? Why would they fight, even a year after Saddam has been captured? I'm not trying to be unkind, just truthful. The average American is so brainwashed nowadays that they really believe all this KILLING is about freedom and security; BUT, it's about the selfish greed and monstrous agendas of the global ruling elite. What you need to do is turn off the TV for a couple months, and read alternative news sources. I'd recommend you start by reading articles by the honorable Congressman Ron Paul. Ron Paul is right on track, and every American should diligently listen to him. The internet is without a doubt the best source of truth, because it hasn't been monopolized yet by the corporations.
People think there is a war on terrorism, because that's all they hear FROM THE GOVERNMENT/CORPORATE controlled newsmedia. There is no legitimate war on terror. Manipulators like Fox News' Sean Hannity and Bill O'Reily are stooges for the rich, who refuse to see the truth, whitewashing mass-murders like George W. Bush. Fox News is brainwashing the public. Sean Hannity viciously attacks anyone who dares criticize the president, or says that certain U.S. government leaders helped orchestrate 911, or says that U.S. troops are killing innocent people in Iraq. It couldn't be more obvious that Fox News is in bed with the Devil. The truth is in plain view, crying out in the streets as Proverb 1:20 says. Hannity and O'Reily are wrong. They belittle people by saying, "How dare you attack the president during this time of crisis." What they won't tell the public is that the Bush gang is causing the crisis. Now is the time when we need to speak out against the atrocities being committed by the thugs in Washington--primarily the murdering of over 100,000 innocent Iraqi citizens. Who do we think we are to bully the world, even killing them? Thou shalt not kill. END
Why So Many Killings?
The following research has been provided by John Hay Rabb:
Here's a pop quiz for you: Which country in the world has the highest murder rate? If you said the United States, you would be wrong, but your error would certainly be excusable. The incessant drumbeat from the mainstream media and anti-gun groups serves to perpetuate the canard that the U.S. is the bloodiest free-fire zone on earth. Nothing could be further from the truth.
In his article "America: The Most Violent Nation?" researcher David C. Stolinsky shows conclusively that there are a number of countries with higher murder rates than the U.S. This information comes from the United Nations report "The 1996 Demographic Yearbook." The report lists the murder rates in some 86 countries. There are more than 200 countries in the world, and more than 100 did not provide murder-rate data to the U.N. Even so, the Yearbook opens a fascinating window on the failure of gun-control laws around the world.
The connection between murder rates and gun control is quite clear. The vast majority of murders are committed with firearms. Therefore, it is possible to determine if there is any sort of correlation between gun laws and murder rates in selected countries.
Gun laws, like all laws, should be evaluated to determine if they meet accepted measures of success. Gun-control advocates contend that gun laws reduce murders as well as other gun crimes. An examination of this proposition shows conclusively that gun laws fail to reduce murder rates in many countries. Therefore, they fail to meet the fundamental measure of success and should be amended or repealed.
A 1997 Justice Department report on murders in the U.S. shows that our country has a murder rate of seven victims per 100,000 population per year. There are a number of well-known examples of countries with more liberal gun laws and lower murder rates than the U.S. One is Finland, with a murder rate of 2.9. Israel is another example; although its population is heavily armed, Israel's murder rate is only 1.4. In Switzerland, gun ownership is a way of life. Its murder rate is 2.7.
By contrast, consider Brazil. All firearms in Brazil must be registered with the government. This registration process can take anywhere from 30 days to three months. All civilian handguns are limited in caliber to no more than 9mm. All rifles must fire handgun ammunition only. Brazilians may only buy one gun per year. At any one time, they may only have in their possession a maximum of six guns: two handguns, two rifles and two shotguns. To transport their guns, citizens must obtain a special police permit. CCW permits are available but are rarely issued.
Therefore, it should not be a revelation to anyone that Brazil has a thriving black market in guns. Virtually any type of gun is available, for a price. Incidentally, Brazil's murder rate is 19 victims per 100,000 population per year.
In Cuba, Fidel Castro controls every aspect of life with an iron hand, including gun ownership. Castro remembers well how he and his rag-tag armed Communist rebels overthrew the government of Fulgencio Batista and set up a Communist dictatorship. An armed populace is threatening to a repressive government. Still, somebody in Cuba is obtaining guns and using them to murder fellow citizens. Cuba's murder rate is 7.8.
The former Soviet state of Lithuania is now an independent democratic country. But it still retains some vestiges of Stalinism. Lithuania's citizens must obtain a police permit to buy a gun. All guns are registered with the government. Somehow these restrictions are not deterring the criminal element; Lithuania has an unenviable murder rate of 11.7.
Gun control in Mexico is a fascinating case study. Mexican gun laws are simply draconian. No civilian may own a gun larger than .22 caliber, and a permit is required to buy one. All guns in Mexico are registered with the Ministry Of Defense. Guns may not be carried in public, either openly or concealed.
Mexican authorities seem to take a particular delight in arresting and imprisoning unwitting Americans who are not familiar with Mexican gun laws. Americans may not bring legal guns or ammunition into Mexico. Possession of even one bullet can get you thrown in a medieval Mexican prison. The State Department says that at any one time there are about 80 Americans imprisoned in Mexico for minor gun crimes. The State Department even went so far as to issue a special notice to U.S. gun owners, warning about harsh Mexican gun laws. Americans are allowed to hunt in Mexico, but they must first obtain a permit from the Mexican Embassy or a Mexican Consulate before taking their hunting rifles south of the border.
Mexico's murder rate is an eye-popping 17.5. Mexican authorities are fond of blaming the high murder rate on firearms smuggled across the border from the United States. Nonsense. The U.S. has many more personal guns than Mexico, yet our murder rate is far lower than Mexico's. It is Mexico's absurd gun laws that prevent law-abiding citizens from protecting themselves against illegally armed criminals.
Guns are effectively outlawed in Russia. Private handgun ownership is totally prohibited. A permit is required to purchase a long gun. All guns are registered with authorities. When transporting a long gun, it must be disassembled. Long guns may only be used for self-defense when the gun owner is on his own property. By the way, Russia's murder rate is a staggering 30.6.
It is surprising to learn that there is gun trouble in the tropical paradises of Trinidad and Tobago. Here a permit is required to purchase a gun. All guns are registered with the police. In spite of (or perhaps because of) these restrictions, Trinidad and Tobago together have a murder rate of 11.7.
In all fairness, it must be noted that many of the countries with high murder rates have governments and cultures very different from our own. Even so, the fundamental measure of gun-control success still applies. The countries I have discussed, along with many others, have gun laws that are more restrictive than U.S. laws, yet their murder rates exceed the U.S. murder rate. These laws clearly do not meet the fundamental measure of success, which is ultimately to save lives.
What anti-gunners all over the world fail to understand is that people everywhere are basically the same in one important respect. They are determined to protect themselves and their families. If their governments will not allow them to have firearms for self-defense, then they may obtain guns illegally, even at the risk of harsh punishment. It is a natural human response to danger.
Try as they might, Sarah Brady and her bunch will never be able to defeat man's primal instinct to protect himself and his family through whatever means necessary. This fundamental human truth may offer some small measure of comfort to law-abiding gun owners around the world. END
"If I had my way, not one gun control law would ever be passed in the United States so that only thieves and crooks would have guns and the common citizen would be at their mercy." -Pastor Jack Hyles (Chap. 17, Teaching on Preaching)
Murder is a Sin!
America is guilty of killing 50,000,000 babies by abortion--guilty of killing over 100,000 innocent Iraqi's--guilty of promoting killing through it's violent movies--guilty of torturing and killing Terri Schiavo--and guilty of killing the Lord Jesus Christ. We read in Hebrews 6:4-6 ...
"For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted of the heavenly gift, and were made partakers of the Holy Ghost, And have tasted the good word of God, and the powers of the world to come, If they shall fall away, to renew them again unto repentance; seeing they crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh, and put him to an open shame."
This verse simply means that if you reject Jesus Christ as your personal Savior, you are still living in the very sins for which Christ died for. You are in effect, saying to God, "I could care less that Jesus Christ died upon the cross for my sins." Thus, Christ died in vain for you, and you are willingly allowing it to happen. Hence, you are willingly crucifying Jesus again, by rejecting Him. Jesus died for our sins, so we could obtain forgiveness through His shed blood (1st Peter 1:18,19). If we have heard the Gospel (tasted of the Heavenly gift), and were convicted by God's Spirit (partakers of the Holy Ghost), and were exposed to the truth (enlightened) ... and we still reject Christ as our Savior, then it is impossible for us to go to Heaven any other way. Salvation is not found in a religion; but in a Person--The Lord Jesus Christ (John 14:6). Do you crucify the Lord afresh, by spitting on His work of redemption, and rejecting His free gift of eternal life? I plead with you to change your mind concerning your sins and unbelief, and turn to Christ by faith, for the forgiveness of all your sins. Here's how to be born again.
