Standing unashamedly for the King James Bible (Edited by DCB) - This is what the taxpayer gets for their money. “Each year, Minnesota government schools close for two days for a teachers’ conference. This year, not only will teachers be playing diversity games with dolls, they will be attending a workshop on how to teach Islam.”

Of course the workshop on Islam will be conducted by an expert panel that “...will present information on teaching about Islam in the context of social studies and world religion. They will share perspectives on how educators can help improve intercultural communication and well-being for immigrant and refugee students and families from Muslim countries.” From this story one must assume the students already know everything they need to know about Judaism and Christianity (or would you)?  MORSI MOUTHS ‘AMEN’ AS EGYPTIAN PREACHER URGES ‘ALLAH, DESTROY THE JEWS’ October 21, 2012 (Edited by DCB) – This shouldn’t be any surprise to read that “Egypt’s President Mohammed Morsi participated in prayers over the weekend in which the preacher urged Allah to ‘destroy the Jews and their supporters’.” In his prayerFutouh Abed Al-Nabi Mansour said “Oh Allah, absolve us of our sins, strengthen us, and grant us victory over the infidels. Oh Allah, destroy the Jews and their supporters. Oh Allah, disperse them, rend them asunder. Oh Allah, demonstrate Your might and greatness upon them. Show us Your omnipotence, oh Lord.” This is what the Arab Spring has brought to these countries. More hate, violence and a breeding ground for jihadists. STUDY: RECORD NUMBER OF TV GAY CHARACTERS Oct 22, 2012 – (Edited by DCB) – The American television industry will this season “…have the highest percentage of gay and lesbian characters ever, according to an annual report by a prominent gay group.” A report by the by the “…Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) shows that 4.4 percent of all characters on broadcast scripted programs during the 2012-13 season will be gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgendered. That's an increase from 2.9 percent in 2011, 3.9 percent in 2010, 3 percent in 2009, 2.6 percent in 2008 and 1.1 percent in 2007. All total, 48 characters on scripted programming are LGBT”.

The first and second spot for pushing the homosexual agenda goes to ABC and Fox. “ABC leads the way with 5.2 percent of its characters identifying as gay on programs "Grey's Anatomy," "Revenge," "Scandal," "Mistresses," "Happy Endings," "Malibu Country," "Suburgatory," "The Middle" and "Modern Family.” Fox comes in second at “(5.1 percent) on programs "Bones," "American Dad," "Glee," "The Cleveland Show" and "The Simpsons.”

The morality of the USA is plummeting. GOVERNMENT REPORT SAYS CHILD SEXUAL ACTIVITY IS 'NORMAL' October 24, 2012 (Edited by DCB) – An Australian Federal Government report says “SEXUAL activity among 11 and 12-year-olds - including those of the same sex - is normal”. “The Australian Centre for the Study of Sexual Assault has listed ‘peer-related sexual activity’ as ‘developmentally appropriate’ for pre-teen children aged 11 and 12.”

Now get this “ states that sexual activity between kids of the same sex does not mean they are homosexual.” It may not mean they are homosexual but it does mean the Bible is true and that they along with all of us are sinners! Plus where would a logical rational thinking person believe this type of “sexual activity” just might lead? 

Then for further information “The ‘developmentally appropriate sexual behaviours’ are listed in a new report revealing big brothers are five times more likely than fathers or uncles to sexually abuse young children.”

The incest report funded by the Australian Federal Government revealed “...that most parents usually ignore, deny or downplay sibling sexual abuse as child's play. Little sisters are the usual victims, but often won't dob in their abusive brothers for fear of ‘rocking the boat’.” All too often the report said is that “The first temptation for parents is to turn a blind eye that it's a bit of experimental mucking around.” Sadly it often “...takes young people three or four or five times before they're believed and action is taken.”

This sexual activity may be worldly “normal” but not for those who claim to know the Lord Jesus Christ. 1 Peter 5:8 “Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour”. NEA CREATES MOCK VALENTINE TO ATTACK MITT ROMNEY (Edited by DCB)- The US and Australian governments know how to waste money and one of those ways is through the public school system. No politician wants to be seen as anti-school and the Presidential debates brought this to the fore. The leftist NEA “In response to Romney’s ‘I love teachers’ remark during the final presidential debate,...created and posted online a ‘fake valentine’ to attack him.” So does one have to love the NEA to love teachers? The truth is “...that the NEA and other teachers unions are starting to sweat. They’ve been watching their grip on the government education system and their political clout melt away in recent years...” One can only hope that if Romney wins the election the leftist, socialist, Marxist NEA will truly be the loser! U.N. HUMAN RIGHTS COUNCIL CALLS FOR BOYCOTT OF U.S. COMPANIES October 25, 2012 (Edited by DCB) – “The Washington Free Beacon has obtained a report soon to be released by the United Nations that calls for an international campaign of legal attacks and economic warfare on a group of American companies that do business in Israel, including Hewlett-Packard, Caterpillar Inc., and Motorola Solutions Inc.”

The hypocritical “...Human Rights Council (HRC),...dominated by Islamic countries and known for its hostility to, and heavy focus on, the Jewish State, issued the report.” The former President George W. Bush’s administration would not participate in the HRC but the Obama crew “...joined it soon after taking office. Members of the HRC include infamous human rights abusers such as Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Jordan, Libya, China, and Cuba.”

Israel is not safely dwelling in their land as of yet. As for the Occupier hopefully he will be shown the door in a few weeks.  October 17, 2012ABWE ADMINISTRATIVE CHANGES (Edited by DCB) – Eighteen months ago “…ABWE committed to address allegations of sexual abuse by Donn Ketcham in Bangladesh” and “the administration and board have confronted many past mistakes, as well as made the necessary changes to ensure nothing like it ever happens again.” One wonders how it happened in the first place.

It is without question that “…some former leaders of ABWE had their priorities wrong.” The late Wendell Kempton “…was the president…in 1989, when allegations of Ketcham’s sexual abuse of a minor first surfaced. While it is true that Ketcham was immediately dismissed from the mission upon discovery of his abuse of an MK, Dr. Kempton’s and the 1989 board’s failure to look more deeply into Ketcham’s sexual abuse delayed the discovery of other MK victims.”                                                                                                                                   During these last eighteen months ABWE “…has taken the following actions:

  • Terminated President Michael Loftis for a leadership failure, displayed in a loss of confidence on the part of the board and administration. The allegations of Ketcham’s abuse surfaced for the second time in 2002. Dr. Loftis stated that he is solely responsible for his actions in failing to officially inform the board of the situation until March 2011, and not following through to insist that the promised investigation was completed. The blog detailing the sexual abuse by Ketcham and the failed response of ABWE in regards to other victims were not the sole issues that resulted in the board’s unanimous decision to release him, but rather the situation provided a window for the board to look more deeply into Dr. Loftis’ overall leadership.
  • Asked and received the resignation of Russ Ebersole from his position of Vice President of Missionary Ministries.
  • Asked and received the resignation of Don Davis as Corporate Counsel.
  • Asked for the resignations of members of the 1989 board who continued to serve as Emeriti board members. Presently none of the 1989 board members continue to serve as Executive or Emeriti board members.
  • Though the present membership of the board was not initially aware of the sexual abuse of several MKs in Bangladesh that took place in the late 1980s, the board has recognized its role, along with the present administration, to do everything possible to respond appropriately to the victims of this abuse.”

Russ Ebersole and Don Davis should have never been allowed to resign but rather these two men should have been terminated for their lack of integrity and collusion in Ketcham’s earlier adultery and later pedophilia. All of these were covered up for years and then incompetently handled after they came to light. HOW MANY HOMOSEXUALS ARE THERE IN AUSTRALIA? October 29, 2012 – The homosexuals and the media tout that there are many more homosexuals in Australia than there really are. That is why “There has often been confusion in the minds of the average Australian about the number of homosexuals and other people who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex (LGBTI) in Australia.”                                                                                                                                                               However, in spite of the overblown percentage by the media the real proportion “…of homosexuals in Australia is between 1 and 2 per cent.   Research conducted by the Australian Research Centre in Sex, Health and Society…at La Trobe University in 2003, has shown that of the 20, 000 people surveyed, about 1.2% of adults identify as homosexual (gay or lesbian).  Among men, 1.6% identify as homosexual, and among women, 0.8% identify as lesbian, while 1.4% of women and 0.9% of men identify as bisexual.  Another study conducted in Victoria, this time by the Victorian government in 2008, found that among Victorians aged 12 to 24 years old, 97.9% identified as heterosexual, 1.5% as bisexuals, and 0.6% as homosexual.” 

There is a 10% myth and this “…figure is a widely quoted number that came from research done by Alfred Kinsey around 60 years ago and is likely to influence people’s estimates of the number of homosexuals in Australia.  However, it doesn’t accurately represent what Kinsey reported.   Kinsey wrote that ‘10% of the males are more or less exclusively homosexual for at least three years between the ages of 16 and 55’, and about 4% of white males were exclusively homosexual throughout their lives.  Studies since then have found much lower numbers, and the Kinsey studies have been criticised for methodological limitations such as biased sampling, flawed statistics and unethical research methods.   Despite these flaws being pointed out to Kinsey, he chose to ignore them and refused to correct for the errors predicted.”                                                                                                   “Monash University in Victoria did a study called ‘How Gay is Australia?’ which was based on the 2001 Australian Census data.  They found that only 0.2% of the population comprises same-sex couples, which is only 0.47% of all couples in Australia.”

The summary of the facts are:  

“• 1.2% of Australians identify as gay or lesbian

• 1.6% of men in Australia identify as gay, 0.9% identify as bisexual

• 0.8% of women identify as lesbian, 1.4% identify as bisexual

• 97.9% of Victorians aged 12-24 identify as heterosexual

• Only 0.47% of couples in Australia are same-sex couples

It is clear from these studies that the number of homosexuals in our society is not as high as the media often claims or portrays. Yet for their small numbers they have a lot to say. Before making radical changes is society based on their demands, we should understand how many they really are.”  

The world may call it the “gay” lifestyle but God’s Word says it is nothing but “uncleanness” and “...against nature” Romans 1: 24, 26.

Because of Calvary,                                                                                                                David C. Bennett, D. Min.
