eHarmony Sued Into Being Gay

eHarmony was founded in 2000 by evangelical Christian Dr. Neil Clark Warren and had ties with the influential religious conservative group Focus on the Family but now Online dating service eHarmony has agreed to create a new website for gays and lesbians.

This is all part of a settlement with a gay man in New Jersey, the New Jersey Offic
e of the Attorney General said on Wednesday.

The website will provide a dating service with "male seeking a male" or "female seeking a female" options, the Attorney General's office said in a statement. The settlement was the result of a discrimination complaint filed by Eric McKinley against eHarmony in 2005, which will be dismissed under the settlement agreement.

Obama Won't Fulfill Dream

This past week, Martin Luther King Jr.'s niece said the following in an article at

"The battle for equal rights has reached a major milestone, but Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s dream of full equality remains just a dream as long as unborn children continue to be treated no better than property."

She is hopeful of the future however and suggests that we keep on praying and maybe in time the unthinkable may occur, that the unborn will be protected under U.S law.
"We must pray with persistence and love that, in God's time, what is now deemed unthinkable will become reality - that all our brothers in sisters, from conception to natural death, will be protected in law and welcomed in society," King concluded. "The elections are over. The pro-life battle begins anew.
Also, Day Garner, president of the National Black Pro-Life Union, sent Jill Stanek an email with insight into how she is handling the election. I thought I was depressed about the election until I read her reaction. But she also comes to the realization of hope (real hope) and states this at the end of the email:

"I am happy God has chosen us to serve in this fight, this great mission."

Child Witches

This should enrage Evangelicals around the world as Christ's name is being used to abuse, abandon, and murder innocent children of all ages. The witchcraft scare has been spreading in places like Nigeria where a form of Evangelical Christianity, paganism, and extreme superstition has combined into a finger-pointing religion where every problem you face can easily be blamed on witchcraft. More specifically, on the child witches. "Prophets" and "Prophetesses" are the only ones who are able to tell if a child has become a witch and they are the only ones who can exorcise them for a hefty price (about a year's income). If the exorcism fails, the child is then killed or abandoned. A news story from the Telegraph:

During the "deliverance" ceremonies, the children are shaken violently, dragged around the room and have potions poured into their eyes. The children look terrified. The parents look on, praying that the child will be cleansed. If the ritual fails, they know their children will have to be sent away, or killed. Many are held in churches, often on chains, and deprived of food until they "confess" to being a witch...

Some Nigerians blame the increase on one of the country's wealthiest and most influential evangelical preachers. Helen Ukpabio, a self-styled prophetess of the 150-branch Liberty Gospel Church, made a film, widely distributed, called End of the Wicked. It tells, in graphic detail, how children become possessed and shows them being inducted into covens, eating human flesh and bringing chaos and death to their families and communities.

Mrs Ukpabio, a mother of three, also wrote a popular book which tells parents how to identify a witch. For children under two years old, she says, the key signs of a servant of Satan are crying and screaming in the night, high fever and worsening health.

October Recap

Sorry there haven't been any posts in a few weeks. My time was stolen by a certain young gentlemen.

This is the culprit:

I am expecting to post a few times a week from now on. So let's get started...

What you may have missed this past month:

-An unusual field trip had first graders attending a lesbian wedding.

-Christian Wire partnering with Pink Cross Foundation in order to better tackle pornography.

-The issue of spanking was in the news again when a pastor was accused of spanking his son with a wooden spoon for lying to him.

-A funeral was finally held for Shanice Osbourne, a baby that was born alive during an abortion but was then allegedly killed by abortionist Belkis Gonzalez. Her body was thrown onto the roof of the abortion clinic when police were called to investigate. 27 months later her body is finally being put to rest.

In news for November, obviously the election is over. And now as Obama ends his campaign, conservatives are looking for hope, trying to regroup, and more importantly "get through" an Obama presidency.

We have a lot to think about, a lot to do. Now is not the time for bitterness. Jill Stanek said it best:
A guy interviewing me on radio yesterday asked, "If Obama wins, you know he's coming after you, right?" That had never occurred to me. The concept is so presumptuous.

Actually, the opposite had occurred to me, and that's how I responded: "No, if Obama wins, I'm coming after him."

It is the time to fight for what is most important and not give up.
