Atheists Still Targeting Pledge of Allegiance

The homosexual community doesn’t just want  their rights, they want everyone to accept and approve of their lifestyle. It seems atheists have taken the same tactic with the pledge of allegiance, among other things, demanding it be removed from public schools. Even though they are not required to say the pledge, they believe it is an infringement of their rights and want it completely removed. The pledge of Allegiance has been our  national pledge, uniting Americans for many years, but atheists seem more interested in in getting their way. They, much like homosexuals, appear to demand tolerance from everyone for their lifestyle without being willing to give much.

Andrew Beckwith of the Massachusetts Family Institute said this about the situation: “The Pledge of Allegiance shouldn’t be banned merely because someone who is not even required to recite it feels offended…The pledge unites Americans. The court should uphold the lower court’s ruling and refuse to divide Americans by silencing a voluntary exercise of patriotism just because a few people don’t like it.” Click here for original article.

UPDATE: GOP Candidates Talk About Planned Parenthood, Cloning, Stem Cells and Personhood

by Nathan A. Cherry, 01/03/2012

Martinsburg, WV – Once again I am doing my best to make sure you are kept up to date with candidates’ positions as they enter the 2012 presidential election. This election could very well be one of the most important in America’s history and, for a number of reasons; conservatives need to be informed and ready to cast their vote. Below is some of the latest developments regarding where the current candidates stand on social and moral issues.

The Family Research Council (FRC) has compiled a very useful guide on where GOP candidates stand on a number of issues. Here are some of the highlights.

ABORTION: On the question of “Do you support or oppose taxpayer funding of abortions?” FRC has every one of the seven remaining Republican candidates listed as opposing direct taxpayer funding of abortions.

PLANNED PARENTHOOD:  When it comes to providing taxpayer funding for the nation’s biggest abortion business, six of the seven Republican candidates are listed as opposing federal funding. Jon Huntsman’s position is listed as unknown — although he recently told Red State, likely after the guide was compiled, that he would veto any congressional legislation that contains Planned Parenthood funding.

Presidential Hopefuls Refuse to Pledge

by Nathan A. Cherry, 07/19/2011

election 2012Martinsburg, WV – Unfortunately a clear front-runner for the GOP presidential race has not emerged. It won’t necessarily take another Reagan to beat Obama in the 2012 election, but it will take a strong, proven leader; because America desperately wants a strong leader in the White House. Social conservatives particularly want a strong leader that will steer America back to the morals and values that helped shape this country. Issues like abortion and marriage will be front and center during the upcoming presidential race.

With that in mind we want to try and keep you informed on where current candidates stand concerning these issues that you and I hold so dear.

I recently told you about the pro-life pledge issued by the Susan B. Anthony List. This pledge asks candidates to commit to standing firm on issues related to life and the unborn. Several candidates, such as Mitt Romney and Herman Cain, came under fire for refusing to sign the pledge. But relatively unknown candidate Thaddeus McCotter joins the list of conservative candidates that decided it was important to sign the pledge. This list includes Michele Bachmann, Tim Pawlenty, Rick Santorum, Newt Gingrich and Ron Paul.

The pro-life pledge asks candidates to promise the following: “To support only judicial nominees who won’t interpret the Constitution in a way that supports Roe v. Wade, select pro-life Cabinet members on positions affecting abortion policy, supporting legislation to stop taxpayer funding of abortions and Planned Parenthood, and to support a fetal pain bill that would ban abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy.”

Presidential Candidates and Life: A Single Issue May Define an Election

by Nathan A. Cherry, 07/05/2011

Martinsburg, WV – We are committed to bringing you as much information about perspective presidential candidates as we possibly can. We believe that in order to vote responsibly you must know the facts about candidates and where they stand on important issues. One such issue is that of life. At the FPCWV we believe that life is sacred, given by our Creator, and must be protected to the fullest. For this reason we also believe in voting for candidates that hold these same values.

With that said take a moment and read the article below concerning current GOP presidential candidates. When it comes to this issue of life, I don’t think we can be too careful. We saw in the last election what happens when a candidate says he is pro-life (or something similar) but never truly clarifies the point and his record says otherwise. The result is, of course, the largest expansion of abortion since Roe v. Wade in American history. For this reason I believe it is imperative that we pay attention to what our state and federal lawmakers say, and more importantly, to how they legislate before we choose to vote for them.

GOP Presidential Candidates Must Affirm Pro-Life Principles

In modern politics, the “single issue voter” gets a pretty bad rap.  He is seen as unrealistic and intellectually myopic, a disservice to his party and, ultimately, his cause.  Politics, after all, is about pragmatism; it is the art of the possible, and no thinking person allows themselves to be guided by their feelings on one single issue.
