IRAQI CHRISTIAN REFUGEES - Both Father Keith Roderick of Christian Solidarity International and I continue to lobby members of the Senate and State Department staff to allow Iraqi Christian refugees to be interviewed directly by our embassies rather than the United Nations. The State Department continues the practice of using the United Nations High Commissioner on Refugees to "vet" refugees and determine which should be allowed to apply for asylum status with the USA. So far in 2007 the US has accepted less than 1,000 Iraqi refugees while Sweden, a much smaller nation, has accepted more than 20,000. (More under International)
GAY SUPER RIGHTS BILL PASSES- This week the House passed ENDA, the Employment Non-Discrimination Act, which grants special rights to homosexuals. If signed into law this organization would be forced to hire homosexuals as would Christian radio and TV stations. All commercial religious enterprises including Christian and Jewish bookstores would be forced to hire homosexuals. Non-denominational Christian schools are covered under ENDA as well. The bill allows for trial lawyers to get huge sums of money based on "perceived" discrimination. That is, if a homosexual feels uncomfortable working at a Christian bookstore that was forced to hire him, he can then sue the store as well.
Although forced through by Democrat Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi some 25 Democrats voted "no." HOWEVER: Some 35 Republicans crossed over and voted for this bill that would give rights to homosexuals which other Americans do not have. (Click here for the party crossover vote list)
NATIONAL BIBLE WEEK - Congressman Bill Sali recently delivered a speech on the importance of National Bible Week. National Bible Week occurs this year during the week of Thanksgiving, November 18 to 25. When I am outside the Beltway I constantly hear hurtful criticism about congressmen. In reality there are many truly godly men in Congress. Government Is Not God- PAC of which I am chairman, helped to elect Bill Sali to Congress. Click here to view the video clip of his speech.
"One recipient of such funding is the Planned Parenthood Federation of America which receives more than $300 million in taxpayer funding each year. According to a 107-count complaint filed in Kansas' Johnson County District Court two weeks ago, Planned Parenthood is accused of performing illegal late-term abortions in violation of state law. It is also accused of falsifying documents and failing to comply with medical reporting requirements," said Brownback.
