Eric Holder wants to make Zimmerman pay.

As disturbing as the recent Zimmerman trial has been, the most shocking part of this story may still be unfolding. A Florida jury acquitted neighborhood watch citizen George Zimmerman of second-degree murder in the fatal-shooting death of Trayvon Martin. The U.S. Attorney General, Eric Holder, has decided that the jury got it wrong, and that Zimmerman still needs to pay, saying, “we must not…let this opportunity pass.” Implying that Zimmerman’s actions were racially motivated and that he may have committed a civil rights crime, Holder is preparing to try Zimmerman again for the same crime! This is ironic given the fact that the FBI had previously conducted a lengthy investigation that found no evidence that Trayvon Martin’s death stemmed from racial motives. This is a violation of the Double Jeopardy Clause of the Fifth Amendment to the United States Constitution provides: “[N]or shall any person be subject for the same offense to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb . . . .” The issue at hand is NOT whether we agree with the jury or not, or whether or not they got it right in their decision. It is about upholding and respecting the Rule of Law. If anything appears to be “racially” motivated here, it seems like Holder’s actions. Eric Holder has also taken an action against the Romeike family from Germany who sought asylum here in the U.S. so they could homeschool their children for religious reasons. Holder has declared that the family should be shipped back to their country, where the compulsory attendance laws were written by the Third Reich! Our friends at HSLDA are going to appeal this case to the U.S. Supreme Court. May God bless their efforts! Eric Holder is the same man who was found to be in contempt of Congress last year by a 255-67 vote! Our Executive Branch of government is out of control, with our President making an astounding number of Executive Orders and creating an alarming number of Executive “Czar” positions. Be assured that Holder is not going to be taking significan actions like this that are not fully encouraged and supported by his Boss. Because of his blatant disregard for the U.S. Constitution, Congress, and our Rule of Law, he (and his Boss) should either resign, or be impeached from his office.

Should Christian Ministries Seek 501-C-3 Status with IRS?

Athanatos Christian Ministries, an apologetics ministry based out of Wisconsin, is one of the few Christian ministries that not only does not have tax exempt status, but deliberately refused to pursue it. In light of revelations that the IRS has been targeting conservative organizations based on their beliefs, ACM’s decision, made in 2008, now seems prescient. On the ‘donation’ section of ACM’s website, there is this simple statement: “In order to operate unmuzzled, ACM is NOT tax exempt.” ACM’s Executive Director, Anthony Horvath, explains, “While it does not appear that tax-exempt status was originally meant to stifle free speech, it is evident that it has become a way to silence the opposition while hiding behind and inside a bureaucracy.” However, Horvath believes the real harm has come from the self-censoring that organizations have engaged in long before the Obama administration decided to turn the bureaucratic machinery against his “enemies list.” Horvath says, “Churches and other tax-exempt organizations have refrained from aggressively stating their beliefs on important issues in order to retain their tax status. Has it been worth it?” According to Horvath, ACM chose not to pursue tax-exempt status to ensure that it would never have to make such a “devil’s bargain.” Horvath believes that 501c3 status would have forced him to be silent on issues he believes are extremely important, or tip-toe around a topic instead of being direct. “I did not want my tax status held as a club over my head, just waiting for the day when some atheist or pro-choice organization decides I had gone over the line. ACM pays its taxes, therefore ACM speaks its mind,” Horvath says. Horvath urges Christians to think carefully about the practical implications of tax policies. In 2010, Worldnetdaily.com published one of his columns urging Christians to develop a theology of taxation, warning that “Christians should carefully test their attitudes about taxation” or risk participating in tyranny. ACM is presently engaged in its annual funding drive, reminding potential donors that operating ‘unmuzzled’ allows Horvath to advocate for pro-life issues and “connect the dots” between one’s worldview and the implications of that worldview. Horvath is available for interviews and may be reached atdirector@athanatosministries.org or 202-697-4623. ACM’s website is www.athanatosministries.org.   Israel Wayne is an Author and Conference Speaker and Site Editor for...

Behind the Scenes of the Kermit Gosnell case

Many of you have been following the Kermit Gosnell case. He was an abortion doctor who brutally murdered babies; even the babies who lived through his abortions. Last year, my mother, Skeet Savage, through her work with Wisdom’s Gate Ministries, had the oppor tunity to share the gospel in the prison where some of his former staff are being incarcerated. By the grace of God, the convicting and redemptive light of Christ found its way into the hearts of many — including at least one of the young ladies who worked for Gosnell. My mother was able to pray with her as she repented with tears streaming and found forgiveness from our Savior. I share this to say that there is another side to an issue like this. We all recognize the need for civil justice, but there is also the eternal souls of these people to consider. As you are watching the news about these hearings, please keep in mind that you have a sister in Christ who has walked out a repentance over the past year, in a way that has been acknowledged by those around her including court officials, prison workers, and many others — and even her own letters and testimony (fruit of a changed life). I’m not arguing against political justice. That has its place, but I am praying that these people (most of whom know they have sinned), will repent of their sin and receive God’s mercy, as at least one of these ladies has done. In every prison in America, there are women and men just like these people. They need to hear the only truth that can set them free: The Gospel of Jesus Christ. Perhaps you can pray that the Lord will send missionaries into that dark and fertile field — or maybe you could even be the one to carry God’s light of truth to them?

Genius: The Legacy of John Lennon (Movie Review)

Genius: The Legacy of John Lennon (Movie Review) “Genius” is a new and chilling movie based on the life and tragic murder of John Lennon. The Producer of the Los Angeles-based film company, Ray Comfort, said, “It’s chilling because it reveals what people will do for money. There are ordinary people out there who would kill you. All they need is the right amount of money and the belief that they won’t get caught.” Ken Mansfield, the former U.S. Manager for Apple Records said, “Genius will open your eyes.” Other reviewers have called it “fast-paced, thought-provoking and compelling.” It is being promoted as “33 minutes that will rock your soul.” Comfort’s last movie “180” received more than 3.7 million views on YouTube and aired on television around the world. “Genius” has been released for free viewing on www.GeniusTheMovie.com to coincide with the December 8th anniversary of the death of John Lennon. Comfort added, “Abraham Lincoln said, ‘Towering genius disdains a beaten path. It seeks regions hitherto unexplored.’ That’s what John Lennon did. He pushed the musical envelope of creativity.” The Genius trailer: youtu.be/ZW2lhWfa28g Israel Wayne is an author and conference speaker and is the Director of Family Renewal,...

Louis Farrakhan & Other Islamic Leaders Call for Muslim Uprising

This year, a number of Muslim leaders from around the world have called for an Islamic uprising. Some places that have sought political and religious tolerance and freedom have been met with severe dictatorial cruelty to crush protests. In the past year, we have seen political uprisings in Yemen, Libya, Egypt, Syria, Saudi Arabia, Algeria, Jordan, Tunisia, Morocco & Bahrain. Now American leaders like Louis Farrakhan (famous for the “Million-Man March” on Washington, DC) are calling for American Muslims to be prepared to cause unrest and protest here in the United States. Louis Farrakhan Muhammad, Sr. (born Louis Eugene Walcott; May 11, 1933) is the leader of the Chicago, Illinois-based Nation of Islam (NOI). In a vitriolic speech before 16,000 devoted followers (and many thousands more over live broadcast) at the Saviour’s Day event in February 2011, Farrakhan stated that this is a time of war. He says Armageddon is coming. “Even OUR blood, will soon be running in the streets, ” Farrakahn said. Farrakhan instructed his people to head to Middle-America and seek refuge from impending natural disasters (the judgment of God) that will hit the East, South and West. Using Apocalyptic language, and quoting many Bible passages, Farrakhan claimed that Elijah Muhammad was the Messiah, and Farrakhan’s role is to build the Kingdom of God on earth. He harkened to the Battle of Badr, where the Prophet Muhammad had to fight and kill members of his own household. Farrakahn even quoted Jesus to support this kind of Jihadist rhetoric. He also called Caucasians “Sociopaths” who need to be expelled from society. Farrakhan is a close friend and ally with Muammar Gaddafi, the Libyan dictator who once in 1996 tried to give Farrakahn and the Nation of Islam a $1 Billion gift to undermine the American Republic. On Friday, June 3, 2011, American-born al Qaeda spokesman Adam Gadahn called on American Muslims to buy guns and carry out one man terrorist operations killing American citizens. He released a two-hour video entitled, “”Do Not Rely on Others, Take the Task Upon Yourself,” saying: “Let’s take America as an example. America is absolutely awash with easily obtainable firearms. You can go down to a gun show at the local convention center and come away with a fully automatic assault rifle, without a background check, and most likely without having to show an identification card. So what are you waiting for?” While national political leaders still continue the rhetoric about Islam...
