A Whopping 70% of the American People Oppose Homosexual "Marriages" According to New CBS Poll the same Week Such Abominations Began in the State of California Forced on the American People by 4 Dictatorial Judges in 4-3 Decision
Even the left-wing CBS -- which skews their polls to the left -- came up with a poll which had an astounding 70% of the American people opposing homosexual "marriages" this week, the very same week during which homosexual "marriages" began in the state of California (on Monday.) These abominations were forced on the American people by 4 judicial dictators legislating from the bench last month in a 4-3 decision, similar to the 4-3 decision by a Massachusetts top court allowing homosexual "marriages" several years ago.
This 70% majority in America just happens to be the exact average of the number of voters in 27 states who have approved state constitutional amendments banning these abominable "marriages." Thankfully, the citizens of California will undoubtedly emulate the voters in 27 other states, so far, to ban homosexual "marriages" this November when a state constitutional amendment is on the ballot. What will appear on the ballot is the California Marriage Protection Act which says: "Only marriage between a man and a woman is valid or recognized in California." Thus, every one of these sham "marriages" occurring this week and until November, between homosexual couples will be considered null and void when a large majority of the California voters vote NO on these perverse "marriages."
To demonstrate the arrogance of these judicial tyrants, on Tuesday, the California Court of Appeal denied Liberty Counsel's Petition "to stay the decision legalizing same-sex marriage. The Court of Appeal has now sent the case back to the Superior Court. A stay would have delayed the issuance of same-sex marriage licenses, allowing the legislature to rewrite statutes that conflict with the ruling, and allowing the voters to amend the state constitution in November when they vote on the California Marriage Protection Act."
The citizens of Florida, and probably Arizona, will be able to vote on a permanent state ban on homosexual "marriages" which no judicial dictator can overturn. That will be a total of 30 states in America which have banned these loathsome "marriages."
There are a handful of heroic state clerks in California who refuse to abide by these repugnant "marriages" forced on California citizens. In California's Kern and Butte counties, County Clerks Ann Barnett and Candace Grubbs, declared that their offices will stop performing wedding ceremonies altogether. People will have to go to churches and synagogues, etc. to get married, which will not be a bad thing.
Candace Grubbs and Ann Barnett did not want to subject their staffs to disregard thousands of years of morality and tradition to perform these destestible "marriages." "The Los Angeles Times" reported that Ann Barnett said that standing up to the radical homosexual lobby and liberal establishment has not been easy for her and her family. Christian Coalition of America commends California County Clerks Ann Barnett and Candace Grubbs.
ELECTIONS HAVE CONSEQUENCES!!!
ACTION ITEM: Please your Congressman at 202-225-3121 or you can go to http://www.cc.org/contactcongress.cfm and email them and urge them to co-sponsor Congressman Daniel Lungren's "Defense of Marriage Act" (a federal constitutional amendment.)
Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice Continues to Attack Israel on Israel's Building Jewish Settlements in the West Bank and Pressuring Israel Into Giving up What is Legitimately and Biblically Israel's, the Entire City of Jerusalem - Israel Official Criticizes Secretary Rice's Actions as a "Rude Intervention into Israel's Domestic Politics"
Yet again, Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice according to "The Washington Times" (June 16, 2008) has attacked Israel over the new construction of Jewish settlements in the West Bank. Thankfully, Israel has approved construction of 1,000 new housing units in East Jerusalem.
Less than 50% of the Israeli people support Condoleeza Rice's so-called "road map" peace plan. Indeed, the "Washington Times" reported on Monday that some politicians in Israel are calling Miss Rice's comments "a rude intervention into domestic Politics."
Secretary Rice is trying to pressure Israel into "peace" accords which will include giving East Jerusalem to Palestinians who want to establish their capital there. Apparently, there are those in this administration who have forgotten the words of God: "I will bless those who bless you, and I will curse those who curse you. And in you all the nations of the earth shall be blessed." (Genesis 12:3.)
Aaron Klein wrote on Wednesday in WorldNetDaily that Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice pledged on Tuesday "to study a Palestinian proposal for the U.S. to guarantee eastern sections of Jerusalem will become part of a future Palestinian state." Mr. Klein also reports that a senior Palestinian Authority official who met with Secretary Rice on Tuesday said: "(Rice) was in total solidarity with us on the issue of stopping Israeli building in (eastern) Jerusalem."
The Palestinian official also said that Miss Rice promised to "seriously" look into the offering of a formal U.S. letter guaranteeing that new Israeli construction in eastern Jerusalem would be disregarded. Mr. Klein reported that "the areas of Israeli construction would be included in the final borders of a Palestinian state."
Mr. Klein also reported that some 231,000 Arabs live in Jerusalem, mostly in eastern neighborhoods. "Many reside in illegally constructed complexes on property owned by the Jewish National Fund, a Jewish nonprofit that purchases land for the purported goal of Jewish settlement. Jerusalem has an estimated total population of 724,000."
Thankfully, Prime Minister Ehud Olmert's spokesman Mark Regev said that Israel has the right to build anywhere in its capital city. Mr. Regev said: "It is clear that the Jewish neighborhoods of Jerusalem will remain part of Israel. It is not realistic that we freeze the lives of people in Jerusalem."
Secretary Rice should understand a majority of citizens in both America and in Israel want the entire city of Jerusalem to be the capital of ONLY Israel. America would not tolerate any interference by Israel into American domestic politics, and Israel expects the same; Secretary Rice needs to back off.
Democrat-controlled Congress FINALLY Provides Money for Salaries for our Troops in Iraq and Afghanistan by Approving the War Supplemental Bill (H.R. 2642) With No Strings Attached -- Such as Surrendering and Retreating in Iraq Which the Majority of Democrat Politicians Want
President George W. Bush won yet another huge victory last night in the United States House of Representatives (besides the astounding victory President Bush and all our American military have won for America in Iraq and Afghanistan.) The House voted for the war supplemental bill, H.R. 2642, by a margin of 268-155 with no strings attached such as forcing withdrawal (i.e. retreat and surrender to the terrorists which most Democrat politicians want.)
Not only did President Bush and our troops get that domestic victory in the House of Representatives yesterday, but the bill contained no provision to give the abominable Planned Parenthood of America, founded by racist Margaret Sanger, a discount on contraception and drugs such as the abortiffacient Plan B drug.
Congressman John Boehner was reported in yesterday's "The Washington Times" to have said before the Democrats surrender to President Bush on the war-funding issue that Democratic leaders are "shamelessly using and abusing our troops to satisfy radical constituencies who are more concerned about advancing a strategy of defeat than they are about bringing them home safely -- and after victory."
Christian Coalition of America commends Republican Leader John Boehner (Ohio) and Republican Whip Roy Blunt for their great work in denying funds to these radical abortion groups and for fighting to defeat any Democrat cut, run, and surrender to terrorists legislation.
Republican Texas Congressman John Carter Castigates House Democrat Calls to "Socialize" or "Nationalize" America's Energy Production
Congressman John Carter, Republican from the 31st District of Texas today responded to the absolutely incredible calls of House Democrats to nationalize or "socialize" (in the words of one Democrat Congresswoman) America's energy production.
Congressman Carter said: "If Democrats in Congress think it is a wise move to socialize our energy supply, Americans need to look no further than Hugo Chavez to see an example of what is to come for our country. This proposal is clearly wrong and goes against every principle of freedom and democracy that defines our great nation. Liberals have made their intentions known, and frightening as they are, you can bet that I will be fighting these proposals every step of the way."
Congressman Carter went on to say that: "Yesterday, in a Washington Examiner editorial piece, Rep. Maurice Hinchey (D-NY) said, â€œWe [the government] should own the refineries. Then we can control how much gets out into the market."
Congressman Carter said: "Fox News reported that Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) said to oil industry executives, â€œGuess what this liberal will be about? This liberal will be all about socializing-um, uhâ€¦will be aboutâ€¦basicallyâ€¦taking over, and the government running all of your companies."
House Republican Whip Roy Blunt Gives Report on the House Energy Action Team Dedicated to Providing America with Vastly Increased Energy Supplies in these Days of $4.08 Per Gallon Gasoline - "Wall Street Journal" Reports Change of Heart by "Green" Congressmen such as Congressmen Roscoe Bartlett & Jim Walsh
The House Republican Whip, Roy Blunt (Missouri) reported that the House Energy Action Team is reporting that America's most promising area for oil and gas development are off-limits. The Republicans this week in Congress are attempting to bring this fact to the American people, who by a large majority of 57% want more drilling in America. For example, the Republicans say that only 3% of the United States' 1.76 billion acre outer continental shelf (OCS) is leased for oil and gas exploration and development (source: Minerals Management Service.)
And according to the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) which manages the 700 million acres federally owned sub-surface mineral estate, only 6% has been leased for oil and gas exploration and development. "The Wall Street Journal" reported in an editorial on Wednesday that the public anger over $4.08 per gallon of gasoline that "some of our political class" is being forced to "confront their energy contradictions.
"Last week, Republicans Jim Walsh of New York and Roscoe Bartlett of Maryland -- two longstanding opponents of offshore drilling -- asked for a mulligan. We can now add John McCain to the roll: In a speech in Houston yesterday, the Senator finally came out in favor of increasing domestic energy supplies." The Wall Street Journal's editorial concludes: "The U.S. Energy Information Agency forecasts that over the next 25 years, oil, coal and natural gas will provide roughly the same 86% of the world's energy mix as they do today. Mr. McCain's new willingness to drill is at least a welcome bow to that reality."
Congressman Roscoe Bartlett's office reported this week that the new Young/Bartlett ANWR bill, H.R. 6107, is tentatively scheduled to be the subject of a GOP House leadership discharge petition during the week of July 21. H.R. 6107 now has over 150 co-sponsors, a jump of some 75 in just one week. The Young/Bartlett bill when signed into law will bring an additional one million barrels per day online in less than 5 years.
Congressman Don Young's bill, the "American Energy Independence and Price Reduction Act," H.R. 6107 will:
- Allow for the environmentally responsible development of ANWR's 30-year, 1 million barrel/day supply
- Bring online ANWR's additional supply of 1 million barrels per day â€“ the equivalent of what Texas produces daily â€“ in less than five years
- Deliver more than $200 billion in corporate tax income and royalty revenue to the federal government
- Bring in $3.5 billion in bonus bids alone
- Create 250,000-750,000 well paid American jobs
- Create a Trust Fund to dedicate federal revenues from bonus bids, rents and royalty revenue to fund a comprehensive range of 18 renewable and alternative energy provisions authorized â€“ but not fully funded â€“ under current law (EPACT 2005 and EISA 2007)
Americans have seen an INCREASE of nearly $1.75 per gallon at the pump since the Democrats took over Congress -- from $2.35 per gallon to almost $4.08 per gallon nation-wide this week. The Democrat-controlled Congress now has an approval rating of 13% as a result!
ACTION ITEM: Please your Congressman at 202-225-3121 or you can go to www.cc.org/contactcongress.cfm and email them and urge them to co-sponsor Congressman Don Young's "American Energy Independence and Price Reduction Act," H.R. 6107 and demand a vote before Congress' one-month summer vacation!

Christian Coalition Activists Need to Encourage 110th Congress to Pass Both "Net Neutrality" and "Multicast-Equal Access" Legislation to Prevent Discrimination Against Religious Broadcasters - Democrat-controlled Congress Expected to Pass "Net Neutrality"
"Multicast/Equal Access" (formerly called "Multicast/Must-carry") will go a long way to preventing discrimination against religious broadcasters. Without a "Multicast/Equal Access" law, the cable and satellite companies would probably not add new Christian channels and the influence of current Christian channels will be diluted.
ACTION ITEM: Please all your Congressman at 202-225-3121 or you can go to http://www.cc.org/contactcongress.cfm and email them and urge them to co-sponsor the Net Neutrality legislation introduced by Republican Congressman Charles "Chip" Pickering and Democrat Congressman Edward Markey called the "Internet Freedom Preservation Act of 2008," H.R. 5353.
