Dare I suggest just a few of those people responsible for the killing. They might as well of put the guns in the children's hands. They are largely responsible for the degradation of ethics and morals in this country and have directly or indirectly encouraged and condoned the violence we now see. The blood of the children murdered in Connecticut, Colorado, Oregon, Arkansas, Kentucky, Mississippi, Michigan, New Jersey, Illinois, and throughout this nation is on their hands.
Poor Hillary continues to look the other way and blames everything on a "Right-Wing Conspiracy." I guess her message might be "It takes a village to satisfy my husband."
Here's a woman, too, with a long list of cases of obstructing justice (ordering the shredding of Vince Foster's documents in the Rose Law Firm, ordering members of the Health Care Task Force to shred documents that were the target of a court probe, ordering the removal of documents from Vince Foster's office and telling aides to lie about it, and by keeping her billing records, a document sought under subpoena, in the White House residence).
Truth is not a virtue that Hillary Clinton inspires either: She lied to investigators about her knowledge about billing records, she lied to investigators about her involvement in the Castle Grande land deal con, and lied to investigators about her involvement in the firing of Travel Office Employees.
In December 1997, Hillary Clinton, the U.S. Justice Department and the White House were found guilty of lying under oath and obstructing justice and were ordered by a Federal Judge to pay $285,000 in attorney's fees to the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons. This brought to a close litigation initiated in February 1993 (AAPS v. Hillary Clinton), filed after Hillary's Health Care Task force repeatedly met in secret to socialize the U.S. health care system.
Yes, Hillary Clinton's hands are stained with the blood of children because of her utter contempt of the rule of law and the spread of that sickness among our children.
Breaking the Bonds Between Children and Parents
Authoritarian and totalitarian regimes - be they fascist or communist in nature - have always sought to destroy the traditional family unit by severing the bonds between parents and their children, thereby increasing the power of the government.
Adolph Hitler understood that if he were to control the German people, he had to first control the children. He started by first taking charge of the children and educating them to follow his racist view and teaching them that it was OK to kill and torture Jews, and anyone that shared different ideals. Before it was over, Hitler's youth were even turning in their parents if they shared other values.
Today, we see a similar trend in our schools teaching children that Christianity is the root cause of environmental deterioration and homophobic attitudes. And children are empowered through child welfare laws and agencies to turn in offending parents.
Quite simply, Hillary Rodham, Donna Shalala, and other modern statists believe they can raise your children better than you can. That's what they mean by "children's rights" - the rights of children to be liberated from the shackles of their evil parents.
Hillary Clinton argues, "Children should have a right to be permitted to decide their own future if they are competent." "Decisions about motherhood and abortion, schooling, cosmetic surgery, treatment of venereal disease, or employment, and others where the decision or lack of one will significantly affect the child's future should not be made unilaterally by parents."
Hillary Clinton was an active radical during the 1960s, when she formed friendships with other student radicals who have now become key Clinton advisers. In the 1970s, the then -Ms. Rodham wrote several articles that suggested children should be free to sue their parents, and implied that parental authority over children was similar to slave masters over slaves, or government over American Indians.
Hillary Rodham Clinton, a long-time fierce proponent of the radical Left, chaired the New World Foundation 1987-88, ranked by the Capitol Research Center as "one of the ten most liberal foundations in the United States." While there, she authorized grants to organizations that backed the Palestine Liberation Organization and the Sandinistas. From 1986-92 she chaired the Children's Defense Fund (CDF), which promotes an amoral approach to sex education and other means of destroying the very moral values which most parents want to pass on to their children. The CDF wants to redefine the family and believes government can serve as surrogate parents (the"village"). That means that kids would no longer be primarily accountable to their parents. To whom would they be accountable to? The answer, of course, is the state. The benevolent state. The "VILLAGE," then, would transcend the Orwellian "Big Brother" role and become surrogate parent. It would grant your children "rights" and be their legal guardian.
Hillary's "village" not only tolerates but encourages crime, drugs, pornography, homosexuality, unrestrained sex, disease, broken families, violence, disrespect for authority, slothfulness, and a whole host of other destructive but "politically correct" behaviors.
As a role model for children, President Bill Clinton carries a large part of the responsibility. After all, he is the one who regularly treats women with utter disrespect and sees them only as toys for his sexual pleasures (Kathleen Willey, Monica Lewinsky, Gennifer Flowers, Paula Jones, Sally Perdue, Lencola Sullivan, Connie Hamzy, Deborah Mathis, former Miss America Elizabeth Ward, Jo Jenkins, or Bobbie Ann Williams). How can you turn a blind eye to all the women who have become victims of Bill Clinton's sexual escapades?
Clinton's role in campaign finance abuses, Whitewater Development Corporation, Filegate, selling secrets to the Chinese in exchange for campaign contributions, laundering drug money through ADFA (Arkansas Development and Finance Authority), and the drug running operation of the "Mena Cartel" all sends messages to our youth that crime pays and lying is okay.
Apparently many students got Clinton's message. During the years of Clinton's leadership, there were no fewer than eight tragic shootings perpetrated by students in our nations schools.
Bill Clinton also demonstrated that crime, violence, and lying is a viable alternative. Consider all the people who are presumed to be "Casualties" of the various Clinton Scandals including illegal fund-raising, Whitewater Development, Inc.; Morgan Guaranty S&L; Mena, Arkansas drug smuggling; The Arkansas Development Finance Authority; Travelgate; philandering, etc. Some of the "Casualties" were openly murdered, but many were killed in such a way so that their deaths could be ruled accidents or suicides. This was especially true if they died in Arkansas where the medical examiners routinely rule apparent murders as either accidents or suicides when it suits political purposes. In fact, this is so common that it is often referred to as "Arkancide" or "Arkansas Suicide".
Don't you just love Al Gore's response to soliciting illegal campaign contributions, "I did nothing wrong. I did nothing illegal. I will not do it again." Now there's a clear message to our youth. Let's rephrase that from a murderers perspective, "I didn't mean to shoot them, it's not my fault, and I apologize so let me go free."
"We are the children of the modern age," said Vice President Al Gore on election night. Who are these "children" taking over the country? They have given us "recreational" drugs, condoms in the schools, AIDS, unprincipled television, open marriages, no-fault divorce, prenuptial agreements and a nuclear strike on the home. For many, the physical, moral, psychological and spiritual consequences of unrestrained living are now being worked out on psychiatrist's couches or from behind a gun.
It was Janet Reno who fabricated charges of child molestation against the Branch Davidians in Waco, Texas and it was at her direction and orders that federal agents descended on the compound in Waco, eventually killing eighty-six men, women, and children after FBI agents used grenade launchers to mount a CS gas attack . Her actions demonstrate to our children that violence is indeed a viable method to resolve conflict.
Later, she demonstrated to our children that brute force is a viable alternative in accomplishing a goal. It was by her unprecedented order that more than 100 storm troopers invaded a private neighborhood in a child custody case to forcibly remove a six-year-old child from the home of loving relatives at the point of a gun.
Secretary of State
Clearly, Madeleine Albright has no respect for human lives saying 500,000 dead Iraqi Children was "worth it". Appointed by Bill Clinton, Madeleine Albright, said on Sixty Minutes (May 12, 1996) that the deaths of half a million children as a result of the absolute, all-embracing deprivations of the UN embargo were: "A hard choice, but the price, we think the price is worth it."
Feminists led by N.O.W.
The false teachers of feminism teach a false life-style of unrighteousness. They prey on weak-willed women - unstable women who are quilt ridden because of their sins, torn by lust, and victims of various false teachers ("always learning," but never coming to a saving knowledge of Christ). A large number of feminists are victims of childhood abuse and are bitter toward men. Their 'guilt' is associated somehow with the false belief that they are responsible for their abuse. Rather than receiving the forgiving grace of Jesus, most of these women have bought into the lie perpetrated by their false teachers that they are 'emancipated' and as a result are unable to function in a healthy relationship with a man. No wonder the majority of women in NOW are lesbians.
Gloria Steinem sounded the war cry, "We don't just want to destroy capitalism," she said, "we want to tear down the whole f____ patriarchy." Men were not husbands, lovers, employers, or friends, they were "PJs" - patriarchal jerks.
Betty Friedan, founder of NOW, once referred to traditional family life as a "comfortable concentration camp" from which women needed liberation.
Sheila Cronan, one of the feminist movements most respected leaders and spokeswomen said, "Since marriage constitutes slavery for women, it is clear that the women's movement must concentrate on attacking marriage."
Patricia Ireland, head of the National Organization of Women (NOW) said that the pro-family organization called Promise Keepers was a threat to women. These men of Promise Keepers promise to love their wives, their children, and their neighbors as themselves, in keeping with the teachings of Jesus Christ, according to the New Testament. A threat, indeed to restoring the family to what it should be!
To accomplish their goals, organizations such as the National Organization for Women, Planned Parenthood, the National Education Association, the People for the American Way, and the Gay-Lesbian Caucus, and their ilk have arisen to champion unrestrained sex, homosexual rights, abortion on demand, while they attacked Christian beliefs, conservative organizations, and all the traditional family structures of America.
In the U.S.A.'s political and social field, the enemies of the Cross of Christ are rapidly gaining in numbers and strategic political position. Our government was filled with people who were morally bankrupt. The appointment to high government positions by Bill and Hillary Clinton were given to people, and especially women, who had a long known record of an anti-Biblical stance.
- Melanne Verveer, former Director of Public Policy for the left-wing political group People for the American Way, joined the staff at the White House in the key position of Deputy Chief of Staff to First Lady Hillary Clinton. The Clintons filled several key positions with members of both People for the American Way and the American Civil Liberties Union.
- Carol Browner, Environmental Protection Agency administrator, spent 18 months on the Senate staff of Al Gore. She is a disciple of Gore's pseudo-science, pseudo-theology, pseudo-philosophy as detailed in his book Earth in the Balance.
- Hillary Clinton has a mind like her own in
their administration's top social policy position at Health and Human Services.
Donna Shalala is the most vicious Christian hater
ever to hold a top cabinet post. She out liberals the ultra liberal
American civil Liberties Union. Shalala supervised nearly half of the entire
federal budget (over $500 billion) and tens of thousands of federal employees.
She set America's social agenda and America heard her aggressive "safe-sex"
campaign spearheaded by Surgeon General Joycelyn Elders. Their goal is to
eventually reach every public school teenager in America with immoral
- She spent taxdollars on a series of television ads with dancing blue foil condoms promoting condom use for young people.
- Bequeathed the title of "High Priestess of Political Correctness", she advocated the Nazi-inspired "hate speech" code to stifle free speech.
- The lesbian community claims she is their Amazon "love sister."
- She was also a director of the elitist-controlled Council on Foreign Relations and is a member of the globalist Trilateral Commission.
- Shalala was also chairman of the Children's Defense Fund, serving with Hillary Clinton in the organization's leadership. What the Children's Defense Fund supports, in essence, is the legal independence of children after early childhood. The Children's Defense Fund (CDF) wants to redefine the family and believes government can serve as surrogate parents, i.e., the "village". The official CDF position on abortion is neutral, but it supports school-based clinics which shuttle pregnant girls to abortion mills without their parent's knowledge.
- President Clinton named Kristine Gebbie, a lesbian, as the new AIDS czar on June 26, 1993. Four months later she spelled out her perceptions on traditional morality. She was quoted by the Associated Press as saying, "[The United States] needs to view human sexuality as an essentially important and pleasurable thing. [Until it does so], we will continue to be a repressed, Victorian society that misrepresents information, denies sexuality early, denies homosexual sexuality particularly in teens, and leaves people abandoned with no place to go. I can help just a little bit in my job, standing on the White House lawn talking about sex with no lightning bolts falling on my head." Kristine Gebbie resigned her post as Clinton's AIDS coordinator on July 8, 1994.
- Probably the most diabolical appointment by Mr. Clinton was
Dr. Joycelyn Elders as Surgeon General of the United States. She first
created controversy in 1987 when then-Gov. Bill Clinton appointed her public
health director for Arkansas. She promptly began a crusade for birth control,
condoms in schools and freedom of choice in abortion, and later took on the
issues of legalizing drugs, early childhood sex education, unlimited abortion
rights, and homosexual adoption, creating headlines and infuriating
conservatives, especially Christians.
"We would like for the right-to-life, anti-choice groups to really get over their love affair with the fetus and start supporting the children."
"We have driver's ed for our kids. We've taught them what to do in the front seat of the car, but not what to do in the back seat."
"We need to speak out to tell people that sex is good, sex is wonderful. It's a normal part and healthy part of our being, whether it is homosexual or heterosexual."
Others in government also demonstrated to our children that honesty and integrity are not values to cherish. There is so much corruption by the leaders of our country in Washington today, who can blame the youth of getting the message that lying, cheating, stealing, and violence is necessary if they want to get ahead? Consider for examples:
- Housing and Urban Development Secretary Henry Cisneros who lied to the FBI about payments he made to his former mistress, Linda Jones.
- Agriculture Secretary Mike Espy who was indicted on charges of accepted illegal gifts and lying to investigators.
- Labor Secretary Alexis Herman who was involved in a scheme of influence peddling during 94-96 when she was a White House aide.
- Associate Attorney General Webster Hubbell who pleads guilty to overbilling clients, mail fraud and tax evasion.
- Arkansas Municipal Court Judge David Hale
- Arkansas Gov. Jim Guy Tucker
- Arkansas Medical Examiner Fahmy Malak
- Senior Advisor George Stephanopoulos
- Secretary of Labor Robert Reich
- EPA Administrator Carol Browner
- Assistant Secretary of HUD Roberta Achtenberg
- Veterans Affairs Secretary Jesse Brown
- Commerce Secretary Ron Brown
- Secretary of Defense Les Aspin
- Energy Secretary Hazel O'Leary
- Clinton-appointed U.S. attorney Kendall B. Coffey
- Director of White House Administration Patsy Thomasson
- Travel Office employee Catherine Cornelius
- Chief of Staff to the First Lady, Margaret Williams
- Treasury Department employee Joshua Steiner
- White House Counsel Lloyd Cutler
- White House Counsel Bernard Nussbaum
- Chief of Staff Mack McLarty
- Senior Advisor Bruce Lensey
- Deputy Treasury Secretary Roger Altman
- Treasury Counsel Jean Hanson
- White House lawyer William Kennedy
- Deputy Chief of Staff Harold Ickes
- USIA Inspector General Marian Benett
- Secretary of Transportation Federico Peno
- Assistant Attorney General for Civil Rights Deval Patrick
- Secretary of the Interior Bruce Babbit
- And Clinton's partners in the Whitewater venture, Jim and Susan McDougal.
The problems facing our nation are truly bipartisan. While many conservatives would love to blame liberal Democrats, in reality the blame falls on both parties. Republicans have been guilty of the same infractions blamed on Democrats. Republicans and Democrats alike appear more interested in re-election than doing what is right. Those in Washington have so perfected the art of compromise there is no room left for reason, truth, justice, or morals.
When we look at the results of the excesses and failures, we must also see that the revolutionary doctrines foisted upon our children have failed. We should also observe the degree to which young people have been cast adrift on a sea of "cultural relativity" and expected to taste and touch and discern for themselves from a complex array of ideas that have meaning. Separated from the tried and tested moral structures of society, today's young people are more like orphans raised in a box.
They are behavioral experiments based on flawed premises, with no contact with the principles and institutions that undergird civilization. Stripped of a vision of something greater than ourselves, which even Norman Lear concedes is vital to society, they become wards of the state and its surrogates, the schools and the media. If you talk to junior high and high school age kids today you find that most of them don't expect to be alive at age 30. They don't see a future. Should we be surprised when they behave like animals?
Unless the criminal activity directly affects them or their family, many Americans simply don't care. Far too many have come to the point where they can be comfortable with immorality and violence ... so long as it happens elsewhere. Consider the popular attitude about Bill Clinton's sexual antics. Their response was often, "what happens in the privacy of Bill Clinton's bedroom is none of their business." They don't care that he lied about it, they just keep their heads buried in the sand of promiscuity. Confront them with the above list of unethical and criminals activity in our government, and they'll say it doesn't matter and that you're being intolerant and narrow-minded to think it does.
Civilization comes to an end with the failure of its people to see what is happening. In nearly every case, citizens of past civilizations which ended witnessed all of the signs of demise but failed to act. Today, the popular culture has helped society forget the lessons of history. In school, teachers used to teach the basics; children received report cards that actually reflected what they had achieved. In 1973, the NEA president said, "The day of basic skills is over . . . we will be the conveyor of national values" Today schools teach self-esteem and is a major tool used to indoctrinate our children. It's not uncommon in science class for children to be taught that humans evolved from a lower life-form and that trees have the same right to life as humans. Children learn that it is okay to have two mommies and no daddy. Kids today are adept at using a calculator, but have no concept of multiplication or division. They cannot make change but score high in self-esteem.
In an American Scholar article (Winter 1993), Senator Moynihan made an interesting point. The 1929 St. Valentine's Day Massacre merits two entries in the World Book Encyclopedia. It resulted in the Constitution being changed and Prohibition being ended. Why? Seven gangsters were killed by four rival gunmen in Chicago. At the time, that was considered so appalling, so heinous, that it became the standard against which to measure horrible crimes for decades to come. Today, however, that sort of thing happens with such frequency in this country, that on most occasions it doesn't even make the news. Moynihan calls this "defining deviancy down." We are, he points out, getting used to behavior that is not good for us. When some form of deviant behavior gets out of hand, we simply redefine it as normal and learn to live with it. "We keep the level of punishment more or less constant in our society by redefining deviancy," he writes. But once we start "defining deviancy down," why stop with drugs? Street violence is equally difficult to control. Should we legalize it? What about sex crimes? Carry the logic far enough, and we can eliminate crime altogether.
It's understandable that ungodly people would reject Christ. They've mocked and ridiculed his name since the day he was born and will keep doing so until He returns. But how it must grieve God to see those who call themselves by his name reject him.
Rich or poor, young or old, people are seeking an anchor in a storm-tossed society that threatens to overwhelm them. They feel inadequate and yearn to be a part of something bigger than themselves. So, where do they turn?
Within most mainline churches, and even many evangelical churches, rather than demanding objective truth about the world around them, too many people are willing to believe whatever seems to agree with their preconceived attitudes. The popular 21st Century church pretends to adhere to the truth, yet quietly undermines it. Experience and emotion are substituted for the Word of God as its basis of faith. Any time we make emotional "religious experiences" or various signs and wonders the criterion of our faith, we thereby open the floodgates to every sort of delusion.
Although they might not consciously recognize it, these same people know there is transcendent truth that they can't seem to find in church, so church becomes irrelevant to them spiritually and they attend much like going to the country club.
The Church being largely absent or unavailable to people has abandoned its place of refuge and truth and has turned seeking people to alternative beliefs, drugs, gangs, violence, promiscuity and suicide.
The Buck Stops
The education system has robbed our children of a classic education; seduced them through deceit and outright lies; the court system has given us "rights" we never owned; the criminal justice system does not provide justice for those who are mistreated; legislators have legalized immoral behavior; and our national leaders set an example of immorality.
Bill Clinton made a mockery of the Office of the President and demonstrated to children that lying, woman chasing, and violence "is the right thing to do."
Hillary Clinton won't be happy until all children are torn away from their homes and brought under the control of the socialist state. Along with Hillary, her lesbian love sisters have taught our youth that it's okay to not have both a mommy and a daddy, that morals are relative and that human life is of little value.
Tree hugging Al has worked to advance the idea that people are really not much different than the spotted owl, snail darder, or the tree in the front yard. He has done more to confuse children to where they don't see any difference between a clay pigeon and their classmate.
Feminists liberated women from the home, from their husbands, from their children - from having to bear children at all. Fathers were liberated from their authority. Children were liberated from limits, from rules, even their parents. And the entire population was liberated from moral and ethical standards. "Family values" have been so scorned that we are left with neither families nor values. What do we have? Rampant illegitimacy and sexual disease, widespread divorce, and a generation of unloved, undisciplined, and uncared-for kids.
Given the climate of permissiveness, tolerance, and moral relativity in today's culture, it should come as no surprise that young people lack judgment and direction. Truth at nearly all levels has been lost. Children know they have been lied to by their parents, their teachers, their school counselors, their pastors, the police, and their government leaders. These kids no longer know what to believe or who to believe. We can tell them that drugs are bad for them, but they've been lied to so often they likely see this warning to be a lie. We tell them that guns are dangerous, but they don't believe. It's not surprising to some of us when these senseless acts of brutality occur. And, as this country continues down the slippery slope of rejection of the Truth, these kinds of tragedies will only increase.
All of the signs of the demise of our culture are with us today: the hostility toward religion, the breakup of the family, the declining view of life, the appetite immorality, the violence and crime, and the declining middle class are coupled with an federal government on the brink of insolvency, whose leaders are living off of society's moral decay leading to the loss of leadership and moral will.
In the days of Noah, God warned a faithless, immoral and violent civilization of the imminent catastrophe that was about to take place, but few listened. Tonight, our civilization is at the crossroads, but few are noticing the signs that are before us. It is time to take notice, and to pray for spiritual awakening in this country, before the light of our civilization goes out.
Many Americans, and people throughout the world, are experiencing spiritual enslavement and oppression. These people are crying out for answers and God's people must address them. We must always remember that we are not warring with flesh and blood, but we are actually fighting the forces that deceive and bind them. Regardless of how deceived someone may be, they are the very ones our Savior gave His life to save. For decades the Church has compromised its beliefs to appease the offenders. This tack will only make the ultimate cost of the inevitable changes much greater. The longer we compromise with them the more costly their ultimate removal will be.
So, What's the
The answer is simple: Jesus! Not religion and not some church organization, but simply Jesus. He said,
"I am the way and the truth and the life." (John 14:6)
You need look no further for the way to go, Jesus said He is the way. You must hold on to the Truth and you must diligently tell others and you need to pray for the wisdom, strength and power to continue to fight the good fight. You should also do all that you can to strengthen the essential truths of our faith, within ourselves, and any to whom we are called to serve by leading. There is life in Jesus.
"I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full." (John 10:10)
We are called to overcome evil with good. We cast out darkness with the light. Allow the Lord to search your heart for any way you might be deceived. Let us now judge ourselves, lest we be judged. If we will humble ourselves now, He will lift us up at the proper time.
