leave a comment »

Washington, D.C. – Congressman Mike Pence (IN-6), has been in Congress for just about 10 years. His hair is growing whiter with each year, but his voice and his stance is firmer now than it has ever been. His voice grew strong as the congressman spoke of “A great awakening is beginning, I am encouraged.” And from there Mr. Pence proceeded to share why he is encouraged and to encourage everyone in the room.

In addressing healthcare Congressman Pence admitted what every American has known for years, that we all want healthcare reform. The room erupted in applause as  Mr. Pence proclaimed,

“The American people will not stand for government-run health-care that uses taxpayer money to fund abortion.” Read the rest of this entry »

Speechless…Silencing the Christians

with 4 comments

From the American Family Association (AFA):

Two TV stations, WOOD-TV in Grand Rapids, MI and WSYX-TV in Columbus, OH, have banned a television special showing how the media is silencing Christians. The stations bowed down to the demands of a handful of homosexual activists and banned the showing of our TV special “Speechless…Silencing the Christians.” The one-hour TV special was scheduled to be shown on the stations, but the stations yanked the program after agreeing to run it. AFA was paying for the time.

You can watch the one-hour banned program here.

You can order a DVD of the one-hour TV special “Speechless…Silencing the Christians” and show it in your church. See for yourself and let your church members see the AFA special that the stations banned!

Or, order all 14 of the original 22-minute episodes of “Speechless…Silencing the Christians” with a discussion guide, and show them in your church.

Oddly enough, the TV special shows how the media censors Christians, which is exactly what these two stations did!

They said the program was “controversial.” The stations do not consider showing two lesbians or two homosexuals kissing or getting into bed with each other controversial. The stations do not consider all the profanity they air controversial. They regularly show network programs advocating the homosexual agenda, but those programs are not considered controversial. However, a special showing of Christians being silenced is controversial!

The manager of the Columbus station told AFA the station would not air the program because telling the truth about homosexuality did not represent “positive Christianity.” Are we moving to a time in the near future when local pastors whose services are broadcast will be banned because their sermons call the practice of homosexuality a sin?
