Standing unashamedly for the King James Bible LEGISLATION TO DUMP DOMA INTRODUCED IN CONGRESS 15 September, 2009 (Edited by DCB) Legislation to repeal the so-called Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) was introduced in the House of Congressman Jerrold Nadler of New York. Of course the People For the UN- American Ways President Michael B. Keegan issued a statement saying the repeal of DOMA is a necessary step in the direction of fairness and equality for all Americans.  Its long past time to get rid of laws designed specifically to discriminate against same-sex couples. What we dirty heterosexuals take for granted causes real harm and of course any true American would not want to hurt their friends and neighbors, but thats exactly what DOMA does so says Keegan. Morality and good health would not have anything to do with the desire to keep DOMA, would it? 'COMMUNITY' COMPLAIN ABOUT SCHOOL MEDITATION 15 September, 2009 (Edited by DCB) Queensland Department of Education says the community and not teachers are responsible for complaints the led to mediation classes being banned at Beerwah High School. According to a spokesperson the teachers were invited to take part in a voluntary transcendental meditation program trial to access its benefits as a tool for relieving stress and potentially contributing to students well-being and learning outcomes. After holding several community information sessions the principal, in consultation with the regional office, decided the meditation program would not continue at this stage.  The programme was not only involve teachers but eventually ...Year 9 students.  According to the TM instructors the course has some five million practitioners world- wide and the Queensland programme would not have cost Education Queensland a cent as it would mainly be funded by US-based TM organisation the David Lynch Foundation... What are your children learning at their public school?

The American Baptist Convention has been rotten to the core for decades. So it should be no real surprise to read at First Baptist Church, Seattles web site that As a progressive American Baptist church, we are a healing bridge for those whose experience with fundamentalism has been painful. We are a welcoming and affirming congregation: sexual and gender minorities are naturally integrated into our congregation. Therefore it is not really surprising to read that this church is also a member of Welcoming and Affirming where we read that Members of the Association of Welcoming & Affirming Baptists (AWAB) are churches, organizations, and individuals who are willing to go on record as welcoming and affirming all persons without regard to sexual orientation or gender identity, and who have joined together to advocate for the full inclusion of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender persons within Baptist communities of faith. Our unique makeup helps make AWAB The National Voice for LGBT Baptists. God says to any true Bible believing Christian to immediately obey 2Corinthians 6:17  which says to ...come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you.  AUSTRALIAN PRIME MINISTER BACKS POVERTY BIBLE 20 September, 2009 (Edited by DCB) The Prime Minister of Australia, Kevin Rudd, has expressed his support for a Bible that highlights verses dealing specifically with poverty at the launch of the so-called Poverty and Justice Bible at Parliament House in Canberra. The so-called Bible was developed by the UK Bible Society in a bid to show that the Bible is relevant to everyone and was published to the praise of church leaders and politicians last year. Rather than highlighting verses declaring mans sinfulness and Gods grace and salvation this book highlights in orange more than 2,000 verses on nearly every page from Genesis to Revelation that speak of Gods attitude to poverty and justice. It also includes a study guide suggesting ways in which individuals can get involved in tackling poverty and injustice. CRITICS ASSAIL OBAMA'S 'SAFE SCHOOLS' CZAR, SAY HE'S WRONG MAN FOR THE JOB 23 September, 2009 (Edited by DCB) If the CEO of this present United States administration has not already shown his true political colour, now a man by the name of Kevin Jennings has been appointed for the job of director of the Office of Safe and Drug Free Schools. This is like putting the fox in charge of the hen house for Jennings founded the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN), which now has over 40 chapters at schools nationwide. He has also published six books on gay rights and education, including one that describes his own experiences as a closeted gay student. This appointment of such a person seems counterproductive since the Office of Safe and Drug Free Schools was created by the former administration to "provide financial assistance for drug and violence prevention activities and activities that promote the health and well being of students in elementary and secondary schools, and institutions of higher education." Have you begun to think about whom you will vote for next time? EELS' FINALS HOPES BLESSED BY THE HAND OF GOD - HILLSONG CHURCH MEMBERS 25 September, 2009 (Edited by DCB) Hill Song is Australia's fastest growing church and known for its contemporary music not only here in Australia but around the world. Now Hill Song is involved in the National Rugby League team, Parramatta Eels.  The holy union between Hillsong and the Eels was wedded by new Parramatta CEO Paul Osborne, a senior member of the congregation. Hill Songs pastors son, Ben, has been appointed by Osborne to be a part of the welfare team and is available to speak with the players about anything they like, including faith. The prayer group, which gathers in a huddle just before kick-off is interdenominational obviously, with Assembly of God, Baptist, Mormon and Catholic represented. Of course as with most new-evangelical thinking, they are at least doing something to reach people for doesnt the end always justify the means?

Because of Calvary,

David C. Bennett, D. Min.
