Definition of insanity
By Armand C. Hale

A good working description of insanity is to be "completely disconnected from reality" so says Fr. John Corapi. All you have to do is just hear what members of Congress, State and Federal Judiciaries and the White House keep deciding and proposing to the American people on a constant basis. They all refuse to hear the voices of the American people (reality) and continue down their path of imaginary, idealized, or false visions that ignores the realities of the world. These types of people use the same formulas for problems hoping that using them time after time; they will get a different result or answer.

Democrats attach "hate crimes" language to Defense Authorization Conference Report.

House Democrats attached "hate crimes" language to the Defense Authorization conference report for Fiscal Year 2010. Democratic leaders have done this time and again, using defense or other bills as vehicles for pushing radical views. It shows exactly how far liberal Democrats are willing to go to get their priorities signed into law. Click here to read more.

Jennings Must Speak Out on his Role in Radical Group ACT UP.

We continue to learn still more about the extremism of "safe schools" czar, Kevin Jennings. First, it was how he was "inspired" by Harry Hay an early homosexual activist who openly defended pedophilia. Now, pro-family activists in Massachusetts have publicized an on line video in which Jennings' homosexual lover, Jeff Davis, identifies Jennings as having been a member of the AIDS Coalition to Unleash Power (ACT UP). On December 10, 1989, ACT UP sent 4,500 protesters to St. Patrick's Cathedral in New York. Some invaded the cathedral and disrupted the Mass, and one even desecrated the Host during communion. Three months ago Harvard University opened an exhibit titled "ACT UP New York: Activism, Art, and the AIDS Crisis, 1987-1993." Kevin Jennings was among the key donors to the exhibit.

Are You "Doing Good Unto All" or Just Some?

The Family Research Council has reported that the blog, Big Hollywood, states that during the week of October 1925 more than 60 network TV shows are going to push for viewers to volunteer more, part of a "first wave of a multi-year 'I Participate' campaign." True volunteerism comes from within you, not a television set. Inquire at your local churches, religious organizations, or local pregnancy resource centers about where the best place to focus your passions. As taught in Galatians 6:10, doing "good unto all" is the biblical standard, not doing "good" only to secular, politically-approved causes. It is by that measure that all people will be evaluated on the Final Day.

"Hate Crimes" Vote Tuesday.

The Pray in Jesus Name Project states we are one phone call between us and the "Hate Crimes" bill on Tuesday Oct 20, 2009. Sen. Leahy (D-VT) attached the pro-homosexual "Pedophile Protection Act" to the Senate version of the Defense Authorization Act. All Senate Democrats voted 63-28 with five RINO Republicans (Sens. Voinovich-OH, Lugar-IN, Murkowski-AK, Snowe-ME, Collins-ME), to invoke cloture and end debate on the pro-homosexual bill.

Pastors not protected by First Amendment?

S. 909 will broadly define the meaning of "intimidation." A pastor's sermon could be considered "hate speech" if heard by an individual who then acts aggressively against persons based on any "sexual orientation." The First Amendment won't automatically protect pastors, since speech accused of "inciting violence" is not protected, and is punishable, under precedent of Supreme Court rulings.

A former Navy Chaplain, who was punished in writing, three times for quoting the Bible in chapel during optionally-attended worship, knows exactly how they'll come after us. The enemies of religious liberty will simply declare certain gospel phrases "hateful" and "offensive" like my commanding officer who punished me for quoting John 3:36 in chapel, and was supported by government lawyers for "protecting" easily offended listeners from the "offensive" gospel of salvation through Jesus Christ.

Free speech suppressed in Norway, Sweden, Canada, Pennsylvania.

Hate crimes laws protecting homosexuals from criticism are already silencing pastors in Norway, where these dangerous laws specifically empower law enforcement officials to prosecute "intimidation" of homosexuals. In Sweden, Pastor Ake Green received a one-month jail sentence last year under a Swedish "hate crimes" law that forbids criticism of those who participate in homosexual behavior. In Canada, where "hate crimes" laws already passed, the Alberta Human Rights Tribunal actively forbid evangelical pastor Stephen Boisson from expressing his moral opposition to homosexuality. The tribunal also ordered Boisson to pay $5,000 in damages for pain and suffering and apologize to the human rights activist who filed the complaint.

In 2004, Michael Marcavage was arrested along with ten other Christians including two elderly grandmothers, charged with violating Pennsylvania's "hate crimes" laws because they carried signs conveying God's love at a homosexual pride rally. They were literally threatened with 50 years in jail for preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ on a public sidewalk, because it offended homosexuals. Kennedy and Obama want to pass essentially that same law nationwide.

This Task Force Using Crime & Corruption in Mexico as Premise for Gun Control in U.S.

On October 13, the Associated Press reported the Bi-National Task Force on Rethinking the United States-Mexico Border has produced a report, which among other things, calls for re-imposition of the federal "assault weapon" ban of 1994-2004, saying it would improve security in both countries. The group consists mostly of former U.S. and Mexican officials and journalists, none of them currently elected by the people of the U.S. or Mexico to make policy. This information was e-mailed to me from the NRA.

Obama Care Does Not Exist.

Have you seen the Obama Care bill? No one else has either because it doesn't exist. The plan written by the Senate Finance Committee will evaporate the second it is passed and the real bill will be written behind closed doors shortly before the Senate begins debate."

And it happened. They voted on this version of Obama Care called the Baucus bill even though it wasn't written. The dirty little secret about the vote is that the Committee never intended of writing the bill. All Snowe and the thirteen Committee Democrats voted for were to enable Reid, Pelosi and Obama to move forward with their shenanigans.

A more expensive, more intrusive and all-around more egregious version of Obama Care under the cover of darkness is to be rammed through Congress. Jeff Mazzella, President of the Center for Individual Freedom, "We don't believe this latest scheme by Obama, Reid and Pelosi has fooled anyone. We don't believe the American people are just going to sit on their hands and let them get away with it."
