15 Seconds

Radio Commentary, 90.7, 91.7 New Life FM, September 12, 2014 – By Sue Ella Deadwyler

Anyone living in the Israel knows first-hand the value of the tiniest bit of time. Phone calls in Israel are often cut short, so folks can run for their lives. In some places, residents have just over a minute to get to a bomb shelter, but others living within range of Hamas rockets have only fifteen seconds to find shelter before the barrage hits.

On July 17th Israel sent ground troops into Gaza to degrade Hamas military capability and destroy a series of well-stocked sophisticated underground tunnels built to invade Israel.   Because of enemy attacks, Israel set up Operation Protective Edge to defend the civilian population against rockets and missiles from Gaza. When the threat ends, Operation Protective Edge will end. That’s happening in the Middle East, but results are felt around the world.

Recently the U.S. State Department issued this warning: “In much of the Middle East, the Christian presence is becoming a shadow of its former self.” Though the current threat in the United States doesn’t require sprinting to bomb shelters within 15 seconds, Christianity is under attack and could use a specialized Operation Protective Edge in this country.

Indoctrination

Radio Commentary, 90.7, 91.7 New Life FM, September 5, 2014 – By Sue Ella Deadwyler

Have you considered how we got from where we were morally to where we are now? If not, let me give you a clue. Compare the 180 days children must spend in school to the time spent one-on-one with parents and it’s a no-brainer. Unless students are enrolled in schools that protect and teach the family religion, students are indoctrinated with a God-less agenda in school.

When religious freedom blocked their move to take over school curricula, educrats invented the false notion of “separation of church and state,” and kept pushing their agenda on vulnerable students. That agenda has been and is being fleshed-out, incrementally, through resolutions National Education Association (NEA) union members pass annually in their July conference.

This year, a major focus of NEA is furthering student indoctrination about alternate lifestyles. New Business Item 51 says the “NEA will, using electronic resources, publish a list of Pre-K – Graduate School recommended books … that have LGBTQ and gender non-conforming themes.” Meaning, NEA union members will publish a book list teachers can use to promote lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and questioning (LGBTQQ) lifestyles and expose classroom students to the most radical sexual orientation organizations in the world.

Prayer Ban

Radio Commentary, 90.7, 91.7 New Life FM, August 29, 2014 – By Sue Ella Deadwyler

“God’s Rescue Squad” was the theme of Vacation Bible School at Bible Baptist Church in Charthage, Missouri, and on Monday, paramedics came to the church to speak to the kids. On Tuesday firefighters came, and lawmen with their K-9 dogs came on Wednesday, but the group scheduled for Thursday didn’t come.

The Missouri National Guard never showed up! Pastor Kent Hogan told Fox News that they wanted to thank the soldiers for protecting religious liberty, but they didn’t know “it was against military policy for National Guard troops to participate in Vacation Bible School.”

One soldier said, “[There were] a lot of disappointed kiddos because of the National Guard being unwilling to allow a Humvee and a few soldiers to spend an hour at a Baptist church. It makes me wonder what I’m actually fighting for.” Continue reading

A Blow to Obamacare

Radio Commentary, 90.7, 91.7 New Life FM, August 22, 2014 – By Sue Ella Deadwyler

On July 22nd the U.S. Court of Appeals ruled on the legality of Obamacare in states that did not establish a health insurance exchange. Immediately, State Representative Jason Spencer issued a press release explaining how Obamacare would be affected in Georgia, if the decision is upheld. This is what he said.

The Court invalidated the mandatory taxpayer subsidies that helped people pay insurance premiums through Obamacare’s federal exchanges. Since the Court struck down the subsidy plan, enrollees have to pay out-of-pocket full premium prices for their insurance, whether they choose a gold, silver or platinum plan. But the Court failed to explain whether subsidies already distributed would have to be repaid to the government.

Since Georgia, reportedly, was the first state to ban the creation of a state health insurance exchange under Obamacare and, subsequently, did not establish an exchange, millions of local exemptions from Obamacare mandates were affirmed by this Court decision. Benefiting from Georgia exemptions are 11,000 businesses, 420,227 low-to-middle income individuals and 112,991 state employees, for a grand total of 2.5 million Georgians now exempt. Also, Georgia taxpayers benefit with untold millions of dollars that will not be redistributed for Obamacare in Georgia. Continue reading
