June is “Gay Pride Month,” although it has been expanded to be more “inclusive” and is now “LGBT Pride Month.” President Obama made it a habit to issue a proclamation recognizing June as “gay pride” month, but President Trump has refused to do so. LGBT activists are crying foul! Unfortunately, the Department of Defense has taken matters into its own hands and issued a ‘pride’ memo.
A pro-life rally is planned for June 6 at 11:00 a.m. in the Main Rotunda of the State Capital Building in Harrisburg. This is to show support for bills defunding Planned Parenthood (SB 300) and extending PA’s ban on abortions from 24 weeks to 20 weeks and ban dismemberment abortions (SB 3).
State Rep Daryl Metcalfe has penned a letter to the PA Human Relations Commission reminding them of their proper role in government and that it does not involve rewriting laws as they attempt to redefine the word “sex” in the PA Human Relations Act and the PA Fair Educational Opportunities Act! Ask your legislator to get involved.
Americans are becoming desensitized to pornography. We live in a society that, by and large, has learned to ignore the Playboy magazine on the racks in the local convenience store, the Sports Illustrated swimsuit edition at the local Walmart, the pornographic books at the local bookstores, the strip club along the road your child’s school bus travels every day, etc., etc. As we have become desensitized, it has emboldened those wanting to further sexualize our communities/nation and we can see the results through increased reports of rape, sexual assault and human trafficking. It is time for Christians to take action!
The US National Institute of Health Director, Dr. Francis Collins, is supportive of embryonic cloning and embryonic stem cell research. He has been in that position since 2009 and does not reflect the pro-life direction President Donald Trump is leading the country. He should be replaced with someone who respects life from the moment of conception.
Homosexual activists and their ally in the PA governor’s mansion are getting impatient with the legislature, which has correctly not extended special rights to homosexuals/transgenders by passing laws which would add ‘sexual orientation and gender identity or expression’ to the PA Human Relations Act. However, Governor Wolf through the PA Human Relations Commission seeks to make those changes simply by changing the definition of the word ‘sex’ within the laws the commission oversees!
It’s called ‘merit selection of judges,’ but it would take away your ability to vote for PA Supreme, Superior and Commonwealth Court judges. How would those judges be chosen? The Governor would get to choose from a list handed him by a 13-member panel and then confirmed by a simple majority in the PA Senate. HB 111 would do just that and it’s in the House Judiciary Committee right now!
Today the House of Representatives actually voted to repeal major portions of Obamacare and defund Planned Parenthood! Unfortunately, half of the Pennsylvania delegation voted against it! All the Democrats, no surprise here, and Republicans Ryan Costello, Charlie Dent, Brian Fitzpatrick, and Pat Meehan voted ‘nay’ on the bill!!
Who has endorsed the candidates for statewide races for PA Supreme Court, PA Superior Court and PA Commonwealth Court? A lot is revealed about the judicial philosophy of a candidate by those who endorses him or her.
Today is the National Day of Prayer and President Trump took advantage of the day to sign an executive order protecting religious liberty. The executive order focused on the Johnston Amendment in an effort to weaken its strangle hold on churches and other religious organizations.
