Key cause of AIDS 'off the table' (OneNewsNow.com)

0 comments

At last week's International AIDS Conference in Vienna, Austria, the Obama administration pledged the support of the U.S. in the global fight against AIDS. But one pro-family activist points out that an important aspect is missing from the undertaking.

Both President Barack Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton made prerecorded speeches at the close of the conference, committing the nation's dedication to fight the disease. However, one key factor seemed to be absent from the rhetoric, says a prominent pro-family activist.

"It's not a big mystery about what helps cause AIDS, and yet one key portion -- homosexual practice, homosexual sex -- is just off the table," notes Peter LaBarbera, president of Americans for Truth About Homosexuality (AFTAH). "And then we wonder why we can't keep this disease in check."

He compares this issue to the Wizard of Oz or the emperor who has no clothes. "There's a lot of talk about fighting AIDS, but they're not really serious about one of the key causes, which is homosexual behavior," he laments.

Instead, LaBarbera says, President Obama promotes it. He wishes the president would take serious action to combat the disease -- like shutting down homosexual bathhouses.

"Bathhouses are places where men can go practice this dangerous sexual activity in secret," the AFTAH president explains. "They can bring it home. If they're bisexual, they can bring it back to their wife or their girlfriend and be the conduit for AIDS into the heterosexual community."

Based on the fact that the Obama administration has avoided the issue, the pro-family activist concludes that it is politically incorrect to talk about the dangers of homosexual behavior.

Felons Voting Illegally May Have Put Franken Over the Top in Minnesota, Study FindsBy Ed Barnes

FoxNews.com Published July 12, 2010

The six-month election recount that turned former "Saturday Night Live" comedian Al Franken into a U.S. senator may have been decided by convicted felons who voted illegally in Minnesota's Twin Cities.
That's the finding of an 18-month study conducted by Minnesota Majority, a conservative watchdog group, which found that at least 341 convicted felons in largely Democratic Minneapolis-St. Paul voted illegally in the 2008 Senate race between Franken, a Democrat, and his Republican opponent, then-incumbent Sen. Norm Coleman.

The final recount vote in the race, determined six months after Election Day, showed Franken beat Coleman by 312 votes -- fewer votes than the number of felons whose illegal ballots were counted, according to Minnesota Majority's newly released study, which matched publicly available conviction lists with voting records.

Furthermore, the report charges that efforts to get state and federal authorities to act on its findings have been "stonewalled."

"We aren't trying to change the result of the last election. That legally can't be done," said Dan McGrath, Minnesota Majority's executive director. "We are just trying to make sure the integrity of the next election isn't compromised."

Evangelists Plead 'Not Guilty' to False Charges for Preaching Christ at Philadelphia's Largest Mosque

0 comments

PHILADELPHIA - Two Christian evangelists pled "not guilty" yesterday to false charges relating to their arrest for preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ at Philadelphia's largest Islamic mosque over the Fourth of July weekend. Their case now heads to trial.

On the night of Saturday, July 3rd, evangelist Michael Marcavage of Repent America (RA), and evangelists Ken Fleck and Mike Stockwell were compelled by God to witness at "Masjid Al Jamia" in Philadelphia. Upon arrival, they sang a hymn and began their outreach activities of open-air preaching and witnessing to the Muslims on the public sidewalk that were leaving the building. However, as they ministered, the evangelists were soon approached by a security officer from the University of Pennsylvania who told them that they could not preach on the public sidewalk outside of the mosque. When Marcavage stated that they were not leaving, the security officer radioed university police.Within minutes, a swarm of security and police officers descended upon the evangelists. One of the officers, Nicole Michel, immediately confronted Marcavage, who was videotaping the situation, and assaulted him by grabbing his hand and forcibly turning off his video camera. The officer's demeanor then escalated into extreme hostility to the point that Marcavage became concerned and called 911 to ask for a supervising officer to come to the scene. When Officer Michel saw Marcavage videotaping the situation again, she declared, "He's going [to jail]," and placed him in handcuffs while another officer stated, "All three of them are going." When the supervising officer, Sergeant Andrew Malloy, finally arrived, he consented to the evangelists' arrests. Marcavage and Fleck were subsequently taken into custody. Stockwell, however, was not arrested, but was commanded to leave immediately. As he left the scene, he heard Officer Michel stating, "I'm concerned about what's on the video" to another officer. The video camera was not brought into the police station with the evangelists' other belongings.

After the evangelists were released from jail and their belongings were returned, they discovered that police destroyed their video evidence by completely recording over the footage that had been captured. The mosque's video surveillance, which is being subpoenaed for trial, will hopefully be produced and show the unlawful actions of police.

"Hostility is rising against Christians in America and police interference with the proclamation of the Gospel is now commonplace, which will only continue to escalate with the rise of Islam," Marcavage stated. "Regardless of those who wish to silence and harm us, we will be faithful in preaching the cross of Christ, which is the power of God unto salvation," Marcavage concluded.
Marcavage and Fleck have been charged with two summary offenses for preaching "disorderly conduct" and "obstructing a highway." A trial date is set for August 10th at 9:00 a.m. in Philadelphia Community Court, 1401 Arch Street, 2nd floor, Philadelphia, PA 19102.

"And now, Lord, behold their threatenings, and grant unto Thy servants that with all boldness they may speak Thy Word ..." - Acts 4:29

A CALL TO ACTION: Don't let these officers get away with their unlawful and egregious behavior without your voice of opposition! Please act by doing the following:

1) Pray that these evangelists would be completely vindicated of these false charges.

2) Contact Maureen Rush, Vice President of Public Safety at the University of Pennsylvania, and respectfully but firmly express your disgust over the behavior of Officer Nicole Michel and ask that she be terminated for her outrageous actions as she is a danger to public safety. Also, request that Sergeant Andrew Malloy be disciplined for his unlawful handling of the situation by violating the civil rights of the evangelists.

Vice President of Public Safety
University of Pennsylvania

Philadelphia, PA 19104

Phone: (215) 898-7515

3) Contact Mark Dorsey, the Chief of Police at the University of Pennsylvania, and similarly state your outrage at the actions of Officer Nicole Michel and Sergeant Andrew Malloy.

Sample comment: "I am disturbed by Officer Michel's abusive treatment of the three evangelists who ministered outside of the Masjid Al Jamia Islamic mosque over the Fourth of July weekend. Moreover, I am especially concerned that Officer Michel unlawfully tampered with evidence to cover up her actions. I would encourage your department to promptly investigate her behavior on the night of July 3rd, and that she be subsequently terminated for her outrageous, dangerous and illegal behavior. Sergeant Andrew Malloy's actions were also improper and inappropriate in consenting to the arrests of the evangelists, and he should be disciplined accordingly."
4) Forward this message to your family and friends!

Marriage in Wisconsin survives 'sneaky attempt' (OneNewsNow.com)
A pro-family spokesperson in Wisconsin labels a losing lawsuit's argument as "just a sneaky attempt to tear down what the voters clearly wanted."

It was announced on Wednesday that the Wisconsin Supreme Court has upheld that state's constitutional ban on homosexual "marriage" and civil unions. All seven justices voted to uphold the vote of the people that was registered on the matter more than three years ago.
