Marriage Under Attack

Radio Commentary, 90.7, 91.7 New Life FM, June 27, 2014 – By Sue Ella Deadwyler

Good morning, Jim.  June used to be the month for brides, but for the last few years the administration has proclaimed it LGBT Pride Month to support alternate lifestyles.  Such efforts intensified after the Supreme Court struck down part of the Defense of Marriage Act, which was not defended by the attorney general.

Currently, every state in the union has been sued to overturn bans on same-sex marriage.  The last state sued was North Dakota on June 6, 2014, the same day a federal judge overturned Wisconsin’s ban against same-sex marriage.  On June 25th, the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals in Denver, Colorado ruled against Utah’s ban on same-sex marriage and so did a U.S. district judge in Indiana, where 50 marriage licenses were issued by mid-afternoon, with hundreds waiting in line for a license.  Reportedly, 19 states and the District of Columbia allow same-sex marriage; 71 lawsuits have been filed to overturn bans in 31 states or territories; and the Freedom to Marry movement claims victory for over-turning marriage laws in six states – Hawaii, New Jersey, New Mexico, Illinois, Oregon and Pennsylvania.

This is the situation in Georgia.  The 2004 Georgia General Assembly passed a proposed constitutional amendment recognizing marriage only as the union of man and woman and prohibiting the recognition of such unions performed elsewhere.  It passed the House 122-52, two over the required two-thirds vote for proposed constitutional amendments.  The Senate vote of 40-14, also, surpassed the two-thirds requirement, and voters ratified it by a simple majority on the November 2004 ballot.  Continue reading

When God was Kicked Out, Atheism Took over & Reprogrammed Youth

Two years after the Supreme Court defined humanism1 as a religion (Trocaso v. Watkins, 1961), prayer (Engel v. Vitale, 1962) and Bible reading (Abington Township School District v. Schempp, 1963) were ruled unconstitutional in public schools, leaving a void soon filled by the newly defined religion that rejects God and promotes atheistic doctrines contrary to the Bible and U.S. culture.

Professions weren’t listed for Humanist Manifesto I signers in 1933, but the list for the 262 who signed Humanist Manifesto II in 1973 revealed 73 educators. Meaning, those 73 U.S. educators accepted this doctrine and goal of humanism: “What more daring a goal for humankind than for each person to become in ideal, as well as practice, a citizen of a world community.”

141 signed Humanist Manifesto 2000. Of them, 56 signatories were from the U.S. and half (28) of them were listed as professors or administrators from U.S. colleges and universities. No less than a Harvard professor of education and psychiatry revealed humanism’s plan to reprogram children when he spoke during a childhood education seminar in 1973. He stated:

“Every child in America entering school at the age of five is mentally ill, because he comes to school with certain allegiances toward our founding fathers, toward our elected officials, toward his parents, toward a belief in a supernatural Being, toward the sovereignty of this nation as a separate entity. It’s up to you teachers to make all these sick children well by creating the international children of the future.” (Note the all-encompassing goal of humanism.)

Georgia Tech’s Technique announced educators’ adoption of atheistic humanism in the article “Humanism dominates philosophy of educators,” October 17, 1975. By then, students were already taught to base their moral and ethical decisions on humanist doctrine, i.e. atheism.

During Human Rights Week, December 6-13, 1978, Academic Humanists from local colleges and organizations met for formal discussions in Atlanta. The Freeman Digest, September 1978 interview with former NEA president Katherine Barrett revealed her future plans for schools:

The school will be the community; the community, the school. The so-called “basic skills,” that currently represent nearly the total effort in elementary schools, will be taught in one quarter of the school day. The teacher can rise to his true calling – a conveyor of values, a philosopher. Teachers no longer will be victims of change; we will be agents of change.

Utah’s Battle Against Same-Sex Marriage

Radio Commentary, 90.7, 91.7 New Life FM, January 24, 2014 – By Sue Ella Deadwyler

Good morning, Jim. Since April 2, 1996, marriage in Georgia has been defined as the union of man and woman; Georgia does not recognize same-sex marriage performed elsewhere, and prohibits the issuance of same-sex marriage licenses. Language identical to that law was added to the State Constitution in a referendum voters passed in 2004.

So far, Georgia’s law and constitutional amendment are intact, but Utah’s amendment defining marriage, passed by 66 percent of voters in 2004, is being challenged. The Utah amendment states that no other domestic union would be recognized as marriage and would not have the same or equivalent legal effect.

Despite overwhelming public approval, Utah’s U.S. District Court struck down the amendment on December 20, 2013 but on January 6th the U.S. Supreme Court issued a stay on same-sex marriages until after an Appeals Court ruling. Continue reading

Kudos to Black Pastors in Illinois!

Radio Commentary, 90.7, 91.7 New Life FM, November 1, 2013 – By Sue Ella Deadwyler

Good morning, Jim. We didn’t hear much about it in Georgia, but on May 31st, Illinois’ all-Democrat Black Caucus asked Democratic leadership NOT to bring the same-sex marriage bill up for a vote. The leadership didn’t listen, brought the bill to the floor, anyway, and it was defeated.

The Frederick Douglass Foundation reported, “It’s a miracle that same-sex marriage didn’t pass in Illinois,” then explained that the miracle came about by a partnership between mostly white policy organizations – the Illinois Policy Institute, Eagle Forum and other legislative experts – Black pastors in a “Coalition to Protect Children and Marriage” and Black leaders, such as former Democrat Senator Rev. James Meeks, Black Ministerial Alliance of Chicago’s Bishop Lance Davis, Pastor Keith Gordon, Frank Bass of the BKB Group, along with pastors from every ethnicity. They all came together to stop same-sex marriage in Illinois.

Pastor Danny Holliday of Alton, Illinois’ Liberty Baptist Church spent a total of 15 days in Springfield, where he spoke with representatives and showed them his copy of David Barton’s Founders’ Bible, which includes U.S. History, the Constitution, Declaration of Independence and other founding documents. One of the representatives immediately said, “I’ve got to have this – right now,” and wrote Pastor Holliday a check for his copy. Continue reading
