Somewhere in heaven God has to be wondering what in tarnation is wrong with the shepherds who claim to serve him and pledge to follow his word. Even though it is abundantly clear that same sex marriage is not accepted in the church a Pennsylvania Methodist pastor decided to officiate a gay wedding. Rev. Frank Schaefer, according to the Philadelphia Enquirer held matrimonial services for his gay son’s wedding.
Even though the Methodist Book of Discipline is very clear in forbidding this type of wedding ceremony, the pastor stated that “he tried to follow God’s command to minister to all,” suggested the Philadelphia Enquirer. The only problem with that, the church officials of America’s largest Protestant denomination begged to differ. In fact, the errant minister was brought up on charges by the church hierarchy even though the church itself has accepted lesbian and gay members in its congregations.
Rev Schaefer stepped over the line and apparently decided to push the church’s moral envelope in deciding on a church trial instead of simply agreeing to not engage in the forbidden practice again. It is not clear why church officials waited several years to bring charges against the Methodist minister for his son’s gay marriage ceremony which took place in Massachusetts.
What is clear is that the minister, who has been ordained for 20 years, decided that the punishment which ranges from a simple official reprimand to being stripped of his pastoral credentials was worth the risk. He stated, “”I love the United Methodist Church,” and even he agrees with a great number of its tenets, except for the gay marriage provision.
And there lies the problem with ministers like Rev. Schaefer of Pennsylvania or Bishop Allyson D. Nelson Abrams, 43 of Detroit who married a female bishop and hid her act from her church; you cannot rewrite the word of God in the bible. Being an ordained shepherd is not a menu which allows you to select which holy tenets of God you feel like obeying and others you can conveniently ignore.
It seems someone in Washington is beginning to listen to We the People. Congressman Frank Wolf (R-VA), Chairman of the Appropriations Committee, and Congressman Jim Gerlach (R-PA), a Ways and Means Committee member, sent a letter to Secretary of State John “Lurch” Kerry telling him they want to speak with the thirty or so “invisible” Americans present in Benghazi the night of the attack on the consulate http://freedomoutpost.com/2013/03/republican-congressmen-to-sec-kerry-give-us-benghazi-survivor/. Kerry will refuse and Republican “leadership” will sandbag this until it gets overridden by a new “crisis”, if We the People let them. It is up to us to ensure this doesn’t happen again.
A twofer post. They are intertwined and I could not separate them so I took excerpts from both but have provided the links for the full articles.

This should concern all Americans. A nation-wide network of researchers has sprung up to attempt to fill in the blanks, but at every opportunity Obama’s high-priced lawyers have built walls around various records or simply made them disappear. It is estimated that Obama’s legal team has now spent well over $1.4 million dollars blocking access to documents every American should have access to. The question is why would he spend so much money to do this?
The president who campaigned for a more “open government” and “full disclosure” will not unseal his medical records, his school records, his birth records or his passport records. He will not release his Harvard records, his Columbia College records, or his Occidental College records—he will not even release his Columbia College thesis. All his legislative records from the Illinois State Senate are missing and he claims his scheduling records during those State Senate years are lost as well. In addition, no one can find his school records for the elite K-12 college prep school, Punahou School, he attended in Hawaii.
What is he hiding? Well, for starters, some of these records will shed light on his citizenship and birth. So, people - you just keep thinkin' it ain't possible that our gvt (or should I say the Marxists left in our gvt) have been planning for this INELIGIBLE FRAUD to be president for a looooong time.
So compare these men – if you HAD to guess which he looks most like… yeah. I thought so. I posted this to my facebook for all my "in the dark" friends to keep your head in the sand… nothing to see here… ignorance is bliss, isn’t it? I wouldn’t know, because I am not ignoring the facts like many of you are in this country.
Honestly, I don't give a ratzass who is father is - I just know he is NOT ELIGIBLE to be our president. The constitutional crisis our esteemed leaders are in fear of isn't that this happened, but that they are too cowardly to CORRECT IT!
Vice President Biden, Leon Panetta, Ben Nelson, Richard Daley, Barney Frank, Ben Miller, Brad Miller and a slew more say “No.”
"Obamacare Bad Medicine"
The one thing you can bank on with Barack Obama is this – he is a habitual liar and will say or do anything to buy votes. Obama hid behind closed doors over 400 days crafting “Obamacare.”
A trillion Dollar Budget buster
Thousands of Americans losing their existing Healthcare plan
Seniors – access to good healthcare dwindling due to medicare changes
Families premiums increasing
Obamacare stacked with hidden taxes
ObamaCare is simply Socialized health care
Democrats against Obama care – just the tip of the iceberg
Rules for Patriots: a MUST-read
Listen half an hour to the mainstream media version of news in this country and you could be forgiven for believing that our once proud nation was headed to hell in a hand basket. In 1946, self-proclaimed Neo-Marxist Chicago community organizer Saul Alinsky wrote his first book Reveille for Radicals. A quarter century later he struck again with Rules for Radicals, a book he literally dedicated to the devil! Alinsky via his students Richard Cloward, Frances Piven, Hillary Rodham, Bill Clinton, George Wiley, Wade Rathke, Barack Obama, his mentor Frank Marshall **Davis, George Soros, most of the progressive politicians on Capitol Hill, and organizations such as ACORN, NWRO, the Center for American PROGRESS and about 50 other Soros-funded semi-Marxist groups have done virtually irreparable harm to this country. The key word in that last sentence is “virtually” . . . that is, it’s NOT too late to stop them in their tracks. Education and awareness and righteous love of country are the keys to taking back this nation . . . .
There is still a chance to stop this Financial Reform debacle, and Liberty Central has uncovered the final text of this bill along with a FAX CONGRESS Take Action program. You can use their program, or send their sample fax to the House and Senate on you own.
The compromise bill now goes to the House and Senate for approval, and on its way to the Obama Triple Crown. There will be a lot of distractions out there in an attempt to keep your eye off the ball: Kagan hearings, Petraeus hearings, House and Senate vote on the final Financial Reform bill, the Gulf oil disaster, and anything else Mr. Obama can drum up.
TAKE ACTION: Oppose the Dodd-Frank Financial Overhaul Bill
NOT “You the Dictator,” Mr. Obama
We, the citizens of the United States, are in a world of HURT. As we quickly slide toward moving control over half of the economy under the federal government, let Rajjpuut say one thing very clear: Mr. Obama was raised a communist, is a communist, and the very best case scenario we will get out of him, if he’s stopped immediately will be the semi-socialist state that Obamacare has brought us to (its evils won’t be fully revealed until 2014). This is a sorry state of affairs. In the information age, 54% of the people were duped because they saw the glitz and heard the fine-sounding rhetoric but knew absolutely nothing about the character of the man they elected. The media and the Democratic Party shafted us by willfully keeping us in the dark . . . .
Obama outright stole the election from Hillary Clinton (by machine politics and thuggery and illegal bussing of out of staters across borders that won him 13 of the 14 caucus states . . . Clinton dominated in easily in the voting states) and the media and Democratic Party saw that and ignored that. His thuggery has expanded to the halls of congress. To say his actions, words and efforts “spit on the Constitution” is to call an aquatic bird that waddles, quacks and flies, GASP: a duck.
Barack Obama was the most mysterious presidential candidate in our nation’s history. The left-leaning media has never properly vetted him. We know a hundred times more about the background of the ill-fated John-John Kennedy than we do of Barack Obama’s. He is a communist. His birth-father was a communist who lost his government job in Kenya, for unceasing communist rants. Here from a relatively left-leaning source, his opinion is forever memorialized about the advisibility of 100% tax and here he names his favorite political-economic system “scientific-socialism” which he immediately clears up by saying “communism.” Read for yourself:
Barack’s first autobiography (we all need at least two, don’t you know) “Dreams From My Father” has never been properly vetted by the media. The material (pictures, interviews and other recordings and some documents) were compiled by Obama. Large pieces of the writing were done by Bill Ayers (bomb-making Weather Underground avowed communist from the late 60’s . . . now a “respected" educator) and it’s as close to truth as Obama has ever gotten. He doesn’t mention “communism” by name but when he talks about "Dreams from My Father" (and grandfather and mother) he means dreams of communism.
Here’s some of what the left-leaning media didn’t choose to investigate: like Barack himself, his mother’s family attended a very controversial church. It was called the “Little Red Church” because the message most frequently heard there had nothing to do with anyone’s sacred book, but rather with “Das Kapital.” Karl Marx’s work. The family had been uprooted from Kansas so they might attend that church and so that his mother Stanley Ann Dunham could attend a communist-leaning Mercer Island prep school near Seattle, Washington, where she proved to be among the most adamantly radical of its students constantly holding forth in a segment of the hall called “Anarchy Alley” and there created the much discussed “Yirka Movement” (ten-years ahead of its time these were loosely-laid plans for a commune for fellow travellers, a.k.a. communists, away from the mainstream of American civilization) at the high school. “Free-love” in the H.G. Wells notion of it, was part of its allure and certainly no capitalism was allowed. In her defense, she was clearly a rebel and yet a lot of us have had some pretty wild notions whenwe were teens . . . one of the chief positive attributes of the Yirka commune would be its welcoming on equal terms of Indians, Blacks and people of all races as equal partners in the endeavor.
Although, Barack’s grandfather Stanley Armour Dunham, could have sold furniture anywhere, he chose that place, that church and most importantly, that school for his little girl. Later he would move to the newly established 50th state, Hawaii. Why? Because Hawaii U. at that time was the most tolerant campus for communist ideas in the country and Ann, as she was now finally calling herself, expected to fit right in. Barack was raised in that communist household by his communist mother and communist grandfather, Stanley Ann Dunham and Stanley Armour Dunham respectively. After her second marriage failed, his mother abandoned him to be raised by his communist grandfather. Because the boy was half-Black, Stanley Armour Dunham brought a mentor into the household for Barak, the Black communist poet Frank Marshall Davis whose stories about Chicago impressed Barack greatly. One thing Frank (his full name was never mentioned in “Dreams From My Father”) told Barack was to be circumspect around all Whites, even his grandparents, “they’ll never fully understand."
After she graduated from Mercer H.S. in 1960, there is great confusion about the beginning of Stanley Ann’s university career. Some documents definitely show she began in Washington but the family always maintained she was never ever there but in Hawaii all along. This could be important because there seems to be no existing record of the marriage by Ann and Barak (without a ‘c’) Hussein Obama, Sr. whom she definitely met at Hawaii U. The whole matter of fatherhood is somewhat problematical due to some indication that she might have had sexual relations with a Nation of Islam administrator when Malcolm X came to speak in Seattle that fall. Ann was definitely ahead of her time in race relations, so it’s possible, but no more than a possibility. Certainly she was a normal-sized woman and Barak Sr. was a normal-sized man five to six inches shorter than “his” son. Short of DNA testing for parenthood, we’ll never know. Some rightwing bloggers have said unequivocally (without proof, of course), that Obama is Malcolm X’s son, but besides everything else being very “iffy” Malcolm X was NOT a communist but, in fact, very much in favor of Black’s exploiting free markets to create businesses to advance themselves. Frankly, the rightwing blogs only have Malcolm X’s 6' 2" height as a factor on their sides. ‘nuff said. We’ll never know. We only know for sure that Ann Dunham was quite radical for her day.
Ms. Dunham a few years later divorced Barack Sr. when she found out he was already married (Barak Sr. had permission from his first wife to marry again -- polygamy is part of the tribal tradition for prosperous men in the area of Kenya where they lived) but not told her of the first marriage until much later, she claimed. Given her extreme radicalism, we can't be sure that conversation never happened either. She was not a conventional girl.
That bronze statue of ten-year old Barack in Jakarta, Indonesia is quite something, eh? . . . not many ten year old boys leave such an impression. The next-to-last area of vetting where the mainstream media and the Democratic Party appeared to drop the ball is Obama’s Muslim connection. “I have never practiced Islam.” “I have always been a Christian.” Those are two of his most quoted statements right up there alongside, "I am NOT a socialist, I'm NOT." But the statue of young Barak (without a ‘c’) Obama in Indonesia where he attended Muslim school and was considered a “prize pupil” strongly suggest otherwise. It suggests that he was a practicing Muslim as a boy from 1967 - 1971 when he attended the school, which in itself is NO BIG DEAL because his mother’s second husband was a prosperous Muslim oil company executive. Young Barack attended school as Barry Soetero (his new father’s name). While Rajjpuut doesn’t enjoy being lied to (“I have never practiced Islam.”) normally a man’s religion is his own business. However, the Muslim connection does rear it’s head in a very ugly manner when it comes to Raila Odinga. If there is one piece of evidence about who is the true Barack Obama, Rajjpuut suggests . . . his dealings with Raila Odinaga reveal the character as clearly as anything ever could.
In 2006 and again in 2007 while already involved in his own presidential campaign Senator Barack Obama, using U.S. tax dollars for the trip, took time off to visit Kenya and campaign on behalf of Raila Odinga (a cousin?) the communist candidate for Kenya’s presidency. The mainstream media have totally ignored the easily discoverable facts of this trip, but have chosen not to. In fact, the mainstream media has been Barak Obama's chief enabler all along.
While in Kenya, on two different occasions Barack appeared and spoke in typical Muslim attire. He appeared all in all at over a dozen events wearing conventional shirt and tie most times. Let's talk about Odinga. He was university educated in East Berlin well before the fall of the Berlin Wall and favors “scientific socialism” a.k.a. communism. He is a Muslim. Muslim’s make up about 10% of the Kenyan populace. The largest religious group in Kenya are Christians at 45%. Despite these facts, most infamously Raila Odinga signed a document of “understanding” with Muslim leaders that he would impose “sharia” if elected. When it was revealed within weeks of its signing, the document seemingly cost Odinga all chance of winning the presidency. He quickly came out with a new document that had none of the first one’s provisions . . . .
When Odinga lost the election badly, he claimed he was defrauded. The Muslim tribes* started a terror campaign in which many people died, much arson and violence was committed including rapes and wanton killing. The largest group among all the victims were Kenyan Christians and their churches. To pacify the Muslims, Odinga was named by the President as his Prime minister. Odinga never apologized for his part in creating the violent and intolerant atmosphere. Obama has not acknowledged campaigning for a communist, wearing Muslim garb, or speaking to Muslim groups. Or any part of the election in Kenya at all.
None of the facts discussed here are state secrets, if they’d have been true of John McCain, you bet the press would have covered it and the Democrats would have revealed it. If they’d have been true of Hillary Clinton or Bill Clinton her chief campaigner, we’d have found out about it courtesy of the press’ unabashed prefence for Barack Obama. Obama is 100% communist, he wants to transform America into an all-powerful federal government: a communist state. Socialism would be a best-case scenario . . . but we’re well past that now.
Ya’ll live long, strong and ornery,
