Moral Apathy and Moral Corruption: Two Sides of the Same Coin

By | Defense of Family, LBB, News and Events, Religious Liberty | No Comments

Thanks to the outstanding investigative work of Mia Cathell at Townhall, the public got a glimpse into the heinous crimes committed by a radical LGBTQ+ activist couple against their two adopted children (9 and 11 years old now). A grand jury indicted William Dale Zulock, Jr. and Zachary Jacoby Zulock on charges including “incest, aggravated sodomy, aggravated child molestation, felony sexual exploitation of children, and felony prostitution of a minor.”

 

The two, explains Cathell, were “darlings of the LGBTQ media” who were “part of an anti-gay hate campaign promoting ‘# NOH8′” and whose pictures were featured several times on the largest LGBTQ+ monthly publication in the nation, Out magazine.

 

The alleged charges must suffice for our purposes; the investigation details are too upsetting (see Cathell’s entire series, being mindful of their content warning—it is hard to get through). We can simply say this is the worst type of abuse against children. These poor children were in third and fourth grades. Some abuse was allegedly filmed to satisfy the perverted desires of the men. And they even allegedly offered their children up to other men. All the while threatening them, saying things like, “Our business is our business. What happens in our home, stays in our home.”

 

To think of what these children have gone through is genuinely heartbreaking. So, you can imagine how my heart sank to discover that the adoption of these children, which opened the door to this unimaginable abuse, was facilitated by a “Christian special-needs adoption agency.” I’m sorry, what? Yes, Cathell didn’t specify at first but later revealed it was an agency called “All God’s Children, Inc.”

 

So, here is where I’d like to focus your attention as Christians for a moment and appeal to your sense of righteousness and zeal for the Name of our Lord. We simply cannot stand silent while so many Christians today celebrate and support sin in the name of Christ. It is heresy. Those who choose to identify themselves as Christians bear the name of Christ. They cannot condone and celebrate sin in any of its forms. Not within and not without.

 

As Christians, we are tacitly complicit in the worst types of abuses when we remain silent to the trampling of God’s loving standards for us in the name of tolerance or anything else. Put another way, we cannot violate the first commandment of Christ (to love God above all, with all our hearts, soul, and mind) to promote the world’s distortion of our Lord’s second command (to love our neighbors as ourselves). See Matthew 22:37-40.

 

When we manipulate God’s Word, we weaken the only good and perfect standard for any sort of sustainable moral order. If Christians agree with the world that there is no objective standard, that God’s law is relative to our personal preferences, then it is impossible to establish some arbitrary human-created line of morality further along because we believe, oh now, “that” is too far. Says who? That might be too far for you, but I have my own truth. Isn’t that what we say? Isn’t that what millions of Christians go along with every day here in America?

 

To be clear. The connection I want us to draw is not between sexual orientation and child abuse and pedophilia (see this recent encounter for other examples of this depravity). Instead, the connection is between moral apathy and moral corruption.

 

As Cathell investigated the now conveniently defunct agency, she found a post of “All God’s Children, Inc. at the First Presbyterian Church of Athens, GA.” The report does not go into more detail about the church, but I got curious.

 

Not surprisingly, a quick search of First Presbyterian Church of Athens, GA, reveals that it is hosting (just as I write this on January 26, 2023) an event alongside PFLAG, “the nation’s largest family and ally organization for LGBTQIA+ people.” Here is the description of the event:

 

In partnership with Athens Pride Queer Collective, Pflag Athens Area will host a discussion circle during the LGBTQ+ youth group meeting time. We will meet separately from the youth group to have a free and open conversation between family members, parents, and LGBTQ+ allies. Mask wearing at your discretion.

 

Now you can see how a “Christian” adoption agency, like All God’s Children, Inc., would be eager to place children in a pro-LGBTQ+ home when it is born out of their theology. To affirm LGBTQ+ relationships is to do the work of their god. It is a work of the heart. Forget the Word of God. This is love to them.

 

The many red flags in these prospective parents (including accusations of “alleged pedophilic behavior”) were really part of the stigma attached to them by a cruel society. It is something they needed to break through, not explore further, to be extra diligent in order to protect these children. We wouldn’t want to upset the prospective couple. Everyone was surprised at how fast they moved through the adoption process (#diversity!).

 

Liberal Christians are not like those other Christians. One of the perpetrators in this case was very public in his criticism of Rev. Billy Graham’s daughter, Cissie Graham Lynch, because she spoke in favor of protecting the religious freedom of Christian organizations that are constantly harassed by government to abandon their faith if they want to do charity work. Cathell quotes Zachary as saying in a Facebook post, “What about all the LGBTQ couples out there that have been stopped from adopting?! What about their rights?”

 

The church that helped them adopt would agree. So would many other Christians today— even famous pastors. Your local pastor may use some of the teaching materials from these churches.

 

Andy Stanley, who has been on the pro-LGBTQ+ line for many years and whose materials are used all over this country, was recently featured praising the faith of his LGBTQ+ friends over any of his other congregants. The church needs to learn from them. “I know the verses; I know the clobber passages,” he said.

 

But again, the authority of Christ is the issue. Belief in God’s Word (His standards) is the issue. Stanley actively advocates diminishing God’s Word, especially the Old Testament, to be more appealing to the world. Moral apathy will give you a better hearing.

 

But this new form of liberal Christianity is the theological force behind the moral corruption we are all witnessing. And we must ask whether we are part of the problem. Am I showing signs of moral apathy in my own life?

 

David describes the workers of iniquity as those “Who speak peace to their neighbors, but evil is in their hearts” (Psalm 28:3). He prays to God against their efforts because “they do not regard the works of the Lord, nor the operation of His hands” (Psalm 28:5).

 

Are we doing the same? Are we showing so little regard for the Word of God that we are really promoting a false sense of peace? Again, we must ask, has my moral indifference given space to the moral corruption I see all around me?

 

If the answer is “yes,” we must repent. We must turn back to the God of Scripture – the whole of Scripture. We must proclaim His standards are best. Indeed, we must attest there is no other foundation for liberty and freedom known to man. True love protects.

 

There is only one way – the Jesus way.

Liberty in Law Dinner with Alex Newman

Concerned Women for America of Missouri (CWA) invites you to join us for a presentation by Alex Newman, at the Liberty in Law Dinner, Monday, January 30, 2023, in Jefferson City.

 

Alex Newman, an award-winning international journalist, educator, author, speaker, and consultant, will speak on the importance of getting children out of public schools as quickly as possible.

 

His reasons for this are many and stem from the global agendas being forced into the curriculum.

These include socialism and communism-both failed experiments in other parts of the world-as well as the ever-expanding sexual education. This “education” only begins at the “drag queen story hours” that we have been hearing about for years.

 

Now, schools can hide sex change services from parents, and educational materials go so far as to teach about the pedophilia present in ancient Greece.

 

Furthermore, these schools are teaching Islamic and Buddhist principles, while banning prayer in schools, as part of the “global education” that schools are moving toward. Ultimately, they hope for a “world core curriculum” that will have the same standards for every child in every school in the world. This has always been the goal, Newman says, and is a sign to parents: get your children out of government schools.

 

Details:
Date: Monday, January 30, 2023
Time: 6:30 to 9:00 p.m.
Location: Missouri Baptist Convention Building, 400 E. High Street, Jefferson City, MO
Cost and Registration: Tickets are $30. Click here to purchase tickets. Registration fee is non-tax-deductible.

We hope to see you there.

Don’t Discriminate Against Homeschoolers

By | South Dakota | No Comments

Two years ago, a good and freedom-loving homeschool bill, SB177, passed in the legislature and signed by Gov. Kristi Noem. However, this year SB57 is an attempt to chip away at those good provisions homeschool families have been enjoying.

 

SB57 would remove the eligibility of homeschooled students to participate in activities in the district of their choice where it may be a better fit for them. Furthermore, the bill does not put this same restriction on public school students, thus discriminating against homeschooled students.

 

ACTION: SB57 could be heard in the Senate Education Committee the week of January 23. Contact the members of the committee and ask them to Vote NO on SB 57. Click here for the list of committee members. Click on their name to send an email.

 

Also, email your state senator and ask them to “Vote NO on SB57.” Put “Vote NO on SB57” in the subject line. Click here for the list of senators. Click on the name to email. If you do not know who your state senator is, click here. Be sure to include your name and address so they know you are a constituent. If you are a CWA of South Dakota member, be sure to let them know.

 

PRAYER: Father, we thank You for giving us the responsibility to educate our children and for the freedom that we have to do so. Bless those families who take on this responsibility. Help them in this endeavor to guide their children in the fear and knowledge of the Lord. Help them to teach their children the truth of Your Creation, Your Word, and the skills to lead a God-honoring life. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

 

Thank you for your prayers and activism.

Looking Forward to a Great Year!

By | Colorado | No Comments

 As we jump into 2023, we must be aware of God’s timing and ways, even when we do not understand. We continue to rejoice over last year’s Supreme Court decisions, like the ending of Roe v Wade and the Coach Kennedy decision. God answers prayer!

 

I am encouraged to have our new Legislative Liaison, Linda English, on our team. Linda and I have begun meeting with key legislators to discuss CWA of Colorado’s legislative priorities for the 2023 legislative session. A top priority is advocating for a state-level life.gov portal that would provide comprehensive information about public and private resources available to mothers with unexpected pregnancies. We covet your prayers as we seek to move the needle on life in Colorado.

 

We are growing our footprint of influence in Colorado, and I invite you to join us in our work. Partner with CWA to promote Biblical values and Constitutional principles in Colorado by starting a Prayer/Action Chapter in your area. For more information about starting a Chapter, please contact me at 303-903-5283 or [email protected]. I look forward to talking with you!

 

CWA grew out of the faithful prayers of women and men like you. 1 Timothy 2:1-2 reminds us:

 

“The first thing I want you to do is pray. Pray every way you know how, for everyone you know. Pray especially for rulers and their governments to rule well so we can be quietly about our business of living…this is the way our Savior wants us to live.” (MSG)

 

Thank you for praying for our state and nation.

Fighting the Government-Big Tech Manipulation

By | Big Tech, Briefs, Legal, News and Events, SCOTUS | No Comments

One of the most concerning aspects of President Joe Biden’s Department of Justice’s malicious targeting of parents and others that merely disagree with the government-approved narrative as “domestic terrorists” is that it undermines the actual war against terrorism. The fact is that terrorist organizations like ISIS have pledged harm to our country, and our government has a duty to remain diligent in protecting our citizens from that clear and present danger.

 

Instead of wasting resources in going after political opponents, we must continue to unite against those who hate our American values. Yet, as the Twitter files have exposed, the U.S. Government’s intelligence apparatus has colluded with Big Tech, not to fight terrorism and protect U.S. citizens but to suppress free speech. This is wrong. We must be able to fight for our constitutional rights without losing our ability to focus and distinguish between these and genuine national security threats.

 

In a brief before the United States Supreme Court, Concerned Women for America (CWA) argues for such a distinction, and we seek to hold Big Tech accountable for turning a blind eye to real terrorist threats facing the nation, claiming technical inability and lack of resources, while displaying great power against our own citizens. In it, we say:

 

Because conservative organizations and other individuals and institutions that do not conform to conventional wisdom are increasingly likely to be silenced for expressing what government agencies and Defendants regard as “extreme and polarizing content,” CWA has a strong interest in protecting free speech, including on Defendants’ near monopolistic platforms. Simultaneously, however, CWA believes that foreign terrorist organizations (“FTOs”) like ISIS, and state sponsors of terrorism like Iran – rather than American citizens who disagree with COVID-related school closures or with policies allowing biological males to compete in women’s sports – pose an actual threat to our national security.

 

One must admit we have a problem when a social media company like Twitter, virtually controlling the modern public square, dares to remove a sitting President of the United States, preventing him from speaking freely to its citizens, while giving full access to the Taliban and several of its most prominent spokespeople even as they simultaneously conduct violent attacks against our country. Given that clear choice they have made, affirmatively taking steps to discredit one voice and give legitimacy to another, the company should not be free to wash its hands for the foreseeable consequences of its actions.

 

In Twitter, Inc. v. Taamneh, the U.S. Supreme Court will wrestle with the fact that though we now know that Big Tech is fully capable of removing content when they want to, it has chosen not to act in the case of straightforward illegal content choosing instead to focus its vast resources on the protected speech of its political opponents, hiding all the while under the alleged special liability protection the federal government has promised them under some laws, like the infamous Section 230.

 

One example has been especially evident since the takeover of Twitter by Elon Musk. In just a few months, Musk cleaned up Twitter of its child pornography problem simply by making it a top priority. The previous owner claimed this was impossible to do, despite their concerted, decades-long efforts to “do everything possible.”

 

Big Tech companies like Google and Meta (formerly Facebook) have become too powerful on the backs of the American people while avoiding the responsibilities that are required of U.S. companies in every other context. Mark Zuckerberg’s nearly half-a-billion dollars investment in the 2020 election, while controlling and manipulating political speech through its platform, is another timely and concerning example.

 

It is a complex problem that will undoubtedly need Congressional action too, but let us hope the U.S. Supreme Court can take steps to start curtailing its growing dangerous power.

 

Action Alert: Protect moms and babies in South Dakota

By | South Dakota | No Comments

For You formed my inward parts; You covered me in my mother’s womb. Psalm 193:13

 

HB1053 is a good pro-life bill that will prohibit pregnant and breastfeeding mothers from being able to secure a certificate for medical marijuana use.  Our goal is a healthy baby and a healthy mother. Read the bill here.

 

HB1053 could be heard in the House Health and Human Services Committee the week of January 17.

 

Studies show that marijuana use during pregnancy increases the risk of low birth weight, stillbirth, and premature birth. The chemicals in marijuana can lead to learning problems, difficulty focusing, and behavioral problems. These chemicals can also pass into breast milk and can affect the infant’s neurobehavioral development.

 

Take Action!

Contact your two state representatives and urge them to protect moms and babies by voting YES on HB1053. If you do not know who your two representatives are, click here.  If you are a member of CWA of South Dakota, be sure to let them know.

 

Pray
Heavenly Father, we ask for Your watch-care over our moms and babies. Thank you for being the giver, sustainer, and protector of life.

 

In Christ,

CWA of Virginia: We are YOUR voice at the Virginia State Capitol

By | Virginia | No Comments

With the strike of a gavel, the Virginia General Assembly legislative session is underway. The 2023 session will run for only 30 days, and General Assembly will consider close to 2000 pieces of legislation. You can read how bills become laws in Virginia here.

 

Concerned Women for America (CWA) of Virginia will have prayer teams at the Capitol each week. We will meet with legislators to discuss and promote legislation that falls in line with CWA’s seven core issues, including pro-life legislation, women’s sports, parental choice in education, sexual exploitation, election integrity, and opposing legislation that promotes comprehensive sexual education, race-based and radical gender ideology in curricula.

Thank you for praying for a hedge of protection each week as our teams travel to and from Richmond. Please pray for favor in the sight of God and man, particularly among those who oppose our issues. Thank you for praying that our words would be gracious and kind, showing respect and humility. Pray that we would be wise as serpents and gentle as doves and that the Spirit of God would have full rule and reign as we speak. Pray that we would be a sweet aroma and that we would be ready to give a defense to anyone who asks for the reason for the hope that is in us, with meekness and fear.

 

Thank you for your continued support of CWA of Virginia. Together, through prayer, education, and action, we can impact Virginia mightily for His Kingdom!

Update: Legislative Session-Week 1

By | South Dakota | No Comments

“For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.”  Ephesians 6:12

 

The First Week of the Legislative Session

 

Lisa Gennaro, our Legislative Liaison, and I arrived at the Capitol in Pierre Tuesday morning for the opening day of the legislative session. Our week was filled with greeting new and returning legislators, networking with other pro-family lobbyists on possible legislation, listening to the State of the State speech by Gov. Kristi Noem, the State of the Judiciary speech by Chief Justice Steven R. Jensen, and the State of the Tribes speech by Chairman Peter Lengkeek, Crow Creek Sioux Tribe.

 

We will monitor and work toward a positive outline on the following issues that align with our seven core issues: protecting the sanctity of life, protecting children from radical transgender ideology, protecting our U.S. Constitution, ensuring school choice, and fighting pornography, sex trafficking, and marijuana are all issues.

 

You can depend on Concerned Women for America (CWA) of South Dakota to actively represent your voice at the State Capitol in Pierre.

 

We cannot be effective without your grassroots prayer and activism. I will be sending email alerts with action items for you to contact your two state representatives and your one state senator. I will also report back to you their votes.

 

Thank you for your continued support of CWA of South Dakota. Together, through prayer, education, and action, we can impact our state mightily for His kingdom!

Who Will be Held Accountable for the Government’s Collusion with Big Tech to Violate Constitutional Rights?

By | LBB, News and Events | No Comments

The days of speculating about the decision-making process of social media giants like Google, Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube are over. Although many conservatives could smell the garbage a mile away, given that the censorship was overwhelmingly against conservatives and to help liberals, the release of the now-infamous Twitter Files, reveals deep coordination between the government and the giant tech company to suppress speech the government considered detrimental to its preferred causes.

 

 

Far from what the left has been saying for years, “This is a private company, so it can do whatever it wants,” the fact is that Twitter was not acting of its own accord in many instances but at the behest of the federal government.

 

 

In other words, the government was seeking to suppress speech by proxy. Knowing its actions would be met with First Amendment restrictions if done directly, it pressured social media companies (all of them, not only Twitter) to perform the unconstitutional actions at their behest.

 

 

Journalist Matt Taibbi who has led the coverage of the Twitter Files, concluded, “The files show the FBI acting as doorman to a vast program of social media surveillance and censorship, encompassing agencies across the federal government – from the State Department to the Pentagon to the CIA.” The liberal media will certainly try to downplay these findings, but this is explosive, uncontroverted evidence of unconstitutional actions at the highest level of government.

 

 

The problem gets even more nefarious when one considers that the reason liberal Twitter executives played along, despite clear reservations that they were acting improperly, was that the FBI was working to help the political party both entities favored, the Democrats. 

 

 

The Hunter Biden-“Russia misinformation” fiasco is the most clear-cut case of how they sought to affect the elections to favor one party by spreading lies and suppressing legitimate speech on social media. Recall Twitter went so far as to censor the oldest continually published daily newspaper in America, The New York Post, because of its coverage of the Hunter Biden laptop. Twitter banned the distribution of a legitimate news story linking then-presidential candidate Joe Biden to his son’s dubious business relationships abroad.

 

 

It’s been reported that the FBI actually paid Twitter almost $4 million to ban accounts and suppress speech that primarily targeted conservative voices. They even established an exclusive, private channel of communication that gave them direct access to where they would be in communications daily.

 

 

This is why it is such good news that the new House Republican Majority voted this week to establish a “Select Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government” modeled after the 1970’s “Church Committee” led by Democrat Sen. Frank Church which investigated intelligence abuses by the executive branch. Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) is expected to chair the new committee looking into today’s abuses.

 

 

I write to inform you of these developments and ask that you pray for Rep. Jordan and the new committee. They face a monumental task that will require the sort of assistance that is beyond all human control. Let us earnestly seek the intervention of the same hand of Providence that has guided our nation throughout our history.

 

 

We stand at a crucial moment in our history. Trust in our government and all our institutions is quickly disappearing. But this good-faith trust is essential to the survival of our Republic. 

 

 

Therefore, we must demand accountability as the number one priority for this new Congress. Unfortunately, these inquiries have too often led to minimal action when it is all said and done. That cannot happen in this case— for the good of the nation.

A Prayer for 2023

By | News and Events | No Comments

Sovereign Lord,
There will be a new year
Only if You allow it
In Your mercy and goodness towards all.

Glory to Your Name;
For Your ways are perfect.
Your wisdom beyond comparison,
You are the Truth for which we thirst.

 

Quench our thirst with Your presence among us.
Do not leave us to our own understandings.
This new year, be ever present in our thoughts,
And direct our every deed.

 

We pray against the spirit of this age;
We pray against the schemes of the Enemy
Who seeks to lead us astray with the old,
“Has God really said?”

 

The answer is, “Yes!”
Yes, You have spoken, and we obey.
We obey for our own good and
To Your glory, Lord.

 

So, we surrender our lives,
Our ambitions, desires and passions,
To You in this new year.
All our plans commence with, “If God wills, we will…”

 

For we know we can do nothing apart from You.
Indeed, we do not want to do anything
Apart from You, even if we could.
You are what we treasure most.

 

Forgive us when we behave as if You were not.
We do it, often, we confess,
To our shame …
We are but foolish men,
Still Your servants, nevertheless.

 

This new year is to You (for You),
As all the years of our lives should be.
We recommit ourselves to Your service,
Forsaking all others,
To trust You — to Love You and You alone.

 

In Jesus’ name we pray these things,
Amen.

Book Discussion: Checks and Balances in our Government

 

You are invited to Concerned Women for America (CWA) of Missouri‘s Taney County Prayer/Action Chapter Tuesday, January 17 meeting. They will spend time in prayer for our state and country and continue their book study of The 5,000 Year Leap* (A Miracle that Changed the World.)

 

The Chapter will discuss Principle 17: A system of checks and balances should be adopted to prevent the abuse of power by the different branches of government. James Madison was astutely aware of such abuse of power when he stated: “It will not be denied that power is of an encroaching nature and that it ought to be effectually restrained from passing the limits assigned to it.”
