Standing unashamedly for the King James Bible Iowa, USA - DAY OF THE DEAD TRADITIONS LIVE ON IN OTTUMWA (Edited by DCB) FESTIVAL FROM LATIN HERITAGE FINDS LOCAL ROOTS – "Day of the Dead is a festival that makes people aware that we are all going to die. It is a festival that has been celebrated in Mexico, Central and South America where Latin heritage has been dominant for centuries, and currently it is popping up more in the United States." In this small Iowa town a group "began celebrating Day of the Dead at St. Mary’s of the Visitation Catholic Church some years ago…" One said they had their "altar in the basement. People would bring their offerings after Mass." In 2004 the priest "familiar to this tradition from his trips to Mexico, moved the altar from basement to the sanctuary." The priest said "Manufacturing altars and inviting the American population to bring in pictures of their dearly departed scared many the first time it was done." "Nov. 1 is Day of All Saints and Nov. 2 is Day of All Souls. These two days along with Halloween are when people prepare to clean the graves of those departed and altars are created in their memory."

Editor’s Comment: William Stokes in THE HISTORY OF BAPTISTS AND THEIR PRINCIPLES, 2nd Edition 1866, says on page 29 that it was in the fifth century when the professing church neglected the supremacy of the Word of God that the "…veneration for departed saints, with the worship of images and relics; incense in Divine worship…" began and continues in the pagan Roman Catholic tradition. May we not neglect the mission field just outside our front door! LIFE DIGEST: DOCTORS URGE EUTHANASIA OF NEWBORNS; HEADLINES ABSENT FOR LIVER CREATION USING NON-EMBRYONIC STEM CELLS 6 November, 2006 (Edited by DCB) "A British medical organization has called for the consideration of ‘active euthanasia’ for severely disabled infants. The Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists urged the Nuffield Council on Bioethics to include newborn euthanasia in its consultation on care for extremely premature and seriously ill babies.’" The report is to be released 16 November.

Editor’s Comment: These "murderers" may "kill the body" of the newborn but they "are not able to kill the soul" Matthew 10:28. 6 November, 2006 DOCTORS WARNING (Edited by DCB) "Some leading British doctors have called for women seeking abortions to be informed of the procedure’s long-term psychological risks." A New Zealand study was cited by the doctors that gave evidence that "even women without past mental health problems are at risk of psychological ill effects after abortion. Women who had had abortions had twice the level of mental health problems and three times the risk of major depressive illness as those who had given birth or never been pregnant."

Editor’s Comment: Ps 127:3 "…the fruit of the womb is his reward." "Where society is rightly ordered children are regarded, not as an incumbrance, but as an inheritance; and they are received, not with regret, but as a reward" Treasury of David.,22049,20727536-5001028,00.html 9 November, 2006 Australia IEMMA DEFENDS HANDLING OF SCANDAL (Edited by DCB) New South Wales’ "Former Aboriginal affairs minister Milton Orkopoulos was sacked from Cabinet, and the NSW ALP began moves to expel him from the party after the 49-year-old was accused of supplying two teenagers with drugs and paying one for sex." However, the politician said "he was innocent of all charges and would vigorously defend his reputation.",22049,20725829-5001021,00.html 9 November, 2006 CHARGED MP KEEPS $60,000 PENSION (Edited by DCB) "While community groups moved swiftly to sever ties with the MP following his arrest, it was revealed that, even if he is convicted as a child sex offender, Mr Orkopoulos will be eligible for a $60,000-a-year pension for life."

Editor’s Comment: This allegation against a state politician here in Australia along with the recent Foley affair and the downfall of the National Association of Evangelicals President Ted Haggard in the USA one begins to see the frightful reality of the following article. Michael Swift: "Gay Revolutionary" from Gay Community News, Feb. 15-21, 1987 (reprinted from The Congressional Record, with preface restored) "We will unmask the powerful homosexuals who masquerade as heterosexuals. You will be shocked and frightened when you find that your presidents and their sons, your industrialists, your senators, your mayors, your generals, your athletes, your film stars, your television personalities, your civic leaders, your priests are not the safe, familiar, bourgeois, heterosexual figures you assumed them to be. We are everywhere; we have infiltrated your ranks. Be careful when you speak of homosexuals because we are always among you; we may be sitting across the desk from you; we may be sleeping in the same bed with you."

Because of Calvary,
