Standing unashamedly for the King James Bible


12 June 2008 NORWAY ADOPTS GAY MARRIAGE LAW – (Edited by DCB) - The Parliament of Norway has “…adopted a new marriage law that allows homosexuals to marry and adopt children and permits lesbians to be artificially inseminated.” The debate was quited heated and the vote was “84 to 41.” According to a Norwegian television station, this makes Norway the “…sixth country in the world to grant homosexuals the right to marry on an equal footing with heterosexuals.” This new law replaces “…a so-called ‘partnership law’ adopted in 1993 which gave Norwegian homosexuals the right to civil unions.” It is interesting that until 1972 homosexulaity was illegal in Norway but since then “…has become one the most liberal in the world in the field.” It is just a matter of time before Australia and the United States accept same sex marriage! 

 HOME CHRISTIAN FREEDOM INTERNATIONAL ADVOCATES FOR U.S. MARINE ACCUSED OF PROSELYTIZING IN IRAQ  6 June 2008 (Edited by DCB)   It seems almost unbelievable but a United States Marine has been removed from his duties in Iraq “…for distributing ‘Christian’ coins to Sunni Muslims in Fallujah.”  The coins bore the Arabic words “Where will you spend eternity” on one side and the verse John 3: 16 on the other.  This act so enraged local Sunni leaders that they demanded the Marine receive the harshest possible punishment. All this in a nation where the United States is losing young Americans to supposedly help establish democracy!!! JAKES, OTHERS IN CLOSED-DOOR MEETING WITH OBAMA 11 June 2008 (Edited by DCB) The Democratic Presidential candidate of the United States, Barak Obama, has discussed “…Darfur, the Iraq war, homosexual rights, abortion and other issues…with Christian leaders, including conservatives who have been criticized for praising the Democratic presidential candidate.”  T. D. Jakes, a prominent pastor of a mega-church in Dallas, TX, said Obama answered questions and spoke of his “personal journey of faith.” Another prominent person in attendance was Franklin Graham. Graham asked Obama whether he personally “…thought Jesus was the way to God, or merely a way”. Graham’s spekesman, Mark DeMoss, declined to say what Obama’s answer was to the question.

 As mentioned in the previous article, Southern Baptist Johnny Hunt is one of Southwide’s speakers this year. Another speaker listed on Southwide’s web site is Eric Geiger. Eric’s web site, says Eric is the executive pastor at Christ Fellowship as well as being associated with Ministry Advantage. If you are interested in reading more on Ministry Advantage, go to The catchword used to be “mntoring” but it seems it is now “coaching”. Ministry Advantage is affiliated in Australia with Willow Creek Asssociation,  Here we read “A Leadership coaching experience offered by Willow Creek Australia in association with Ministry Advantage, USA.”

Still north of the American border GOVERNMENT TO PASTOR: RENOUNCE YOUR FAITH! NOW BANNED FROM EXPRESSING MORAL OPPOSITION TO HOMOSEXUALITY 9 June 2008 (Edited by DCB) – Evangelical pastor, Stephen Boisson, has beeen ordered by the Alberta Human Rights Tribunal “…to renounce his faith and never again express moral opposition to homosexuality, according to a new report.” The charges came about due to a letter Pastor Boisson wrote to the editor of the Alberta Red Deer newspaper denouncing the activities of the homosexuals. He wrote that “Children as young as five and six years of age are being subjected to psychologically and physiologically damaging pro-homosexual literature and guidance in the public school system; all under the fraudulent guise of equal rights.” The decision of the Alberta Human Rights tribunal banned the pastor “…from expressing his biblical perspective of homosexuality and ordered to pay $5,000 for ‘damages for pain and suffering’ as well as apologize to the activist who complained of being hurt.”

Are these human rights commissions and tribunals for all people or just some? The very Act that allowed this pastor to be charged also states, “Nothing in this section shall be deemed to interfere with the free expression of opinion on any subject.” HOMOSEXUALITY TAKES CONGRESS BY STORM 13 June 2008 (Edited by DCB) – The Uned States of America is in trouble! Two homosexual Democrat members of the United States House of Representatives “…have recruited 50 of their colleagues to officially join them in promoting the homosexual agenda in Congress.” These 52 liberals have created “…the House Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, and Transgender Caucus.”

“The 52 members of the LGBT Caucus are: Tammy Baldwin (D-WI), Barney Frank (D-MA), Rob Andrews (D-NJ), Xavier Becerra (D-CA), Lois Capps (D-CA), Yvette Clarke (D-NY), Joseph Crowley (D-NY), Diana DeGette (D-CO), Keith Ellison (D-MN), Raúl Grijalva (D-AZ), Mike Honda (D-CA), Barbara Lee (D-CA), James McGovern (D-MA), Jerrold Nadler (D-NY), Linda Sánchez (D-CA), Jan Schakowsky (D-IL), Hilda Solis (D-CA), Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL), Henry Waxman (D-CA), Anthony Weiner (D-NY), Peter Welch (D-VT), Howard Berman (D-CA), Earl Blumenauer (D-OR), Robert Brady (D-PA), Michael Capuano (D-MA), Susan Davis (D-CA), Rosa DeLauro (D-CT), Eliot Engel (D-NY), Anna Eshoo (D-CA), Luis Gutierrez (D-IL), Phil Hare (D-IL), Rush Holt (D-NJ), Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX), Eddie Bernice Johnson (D-TX), Patrick Kennedy (D-RI), Dennis Kucinich (D-OH), Zoe Lofgren (D-CA), Carolyn Maloney (D-NY), Doris Matsui (D-CA), James Moran (D-VA), Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-Washington, D.C.), Frank Pallone (D-NJ), Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL), Steven Rothman (D-NJ), José Serrano (D-NY), Chris Shays (R-CT), Pete Stark (D-CA), Betty Sutton (D-OH), Ellen Tauscher (D-CA), Niki Tsongas (D-MA), Robert Wexler (D-FL), Lynn Woolsey (D-CA).”

America certainly needs our prayers at this crucial hour! 2 Chronicles 7: 14 “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”

Because of Calvary and Grace,

David C. Bennett, D. Min.
