Hey Give Me A Minute 0010

In a past "Robesonian" newspaper editorial letter Micah Royal stated that as a "minister and person of faith that he wanted our local communities to speak up against the largely faith based discrimination and bigotry currently being promoted by some in our community". It is hypocritical of him to be defending the "Rights" of one group while at the same time denying the rights of another. The implication is clear that if one disagrees with the liberals and media bias that is being promoted then that person is a bigot. What is a bigot, according to the Encarta dictionary a bigot "is somebody with strong opinions, especially on politics, religion, or ethnicity, who refuses to accept different views". That being the case them I must be listed as a bigot, for there are some things which I personally believe that I am unwilling to change. To accuse the faith-based community of discrimination which means "to treat one person or group worse than others or better than others, usually because of a prejudice about race, ethnicity, age, religion, or gender" is in itself an act of discrimination.
Having served in the military I am a strong proponent of Rights and Freedoms as they are defined in our Constitution. But beyond this I believe that we have an even greater freedom (Free Will) as our founding fathers also held that we have certain "inalienable rights" that is that we have rights that have been given to us by a supreme being (God). As a minority it is offensive to me when people attach every bias, prejudice or discrimination to the "Civil Rights" Movement. Most people who now read about the great civil rights legislations of 1957, 1964 and 1965 fail to recognize that it would not be until 1968 with the passage of the Indian Civil Rights Act that Native Americans would be given full citizenship status behind Blacks, Asians, Hispanics and Women. The first people here would be the last recognized.
To imply that those of the "conservative persuasion" either past or present who stand on their convictions are "all simply using biblical texts out of context" is amusing since he asked that you look up Acts 10:34 which states "that God shows no partiality," yet failed to give the conclusion of the text which says "but in every nation anyone who fears him [God] and does what is right is acceptable to him [God]" (Acts 10:35). He also asks that those who oppose "civil rights" for gay, lesbian, bisexual and trans-genders consider if this would "put us on the wrong side of history". Perhaps a more important question for those of the faith based community is will supporting these rights put us on the wrong side of GOD.

Time's up.

Hey! Give me a Minute 0009

"The will of the people is the only legitimate foundation of any government, and to protect its free expression should be our first object". -Thomas Jefferson-
3rd president of US (1743 - 1826)

Consider this – "out of 50 governors and 100 U.S. senators, not a single one has announced support for full legalization, even in Colorado and Washington, which have already passed laws legalizing the sale of recreational marijuana" this according to a recent Huffington Post article. In fact Colorado "Gov. John Hickenlooper (D) has repeatedly said he respects the will of his state's voters, who approved Amendment 64 by a 10-point margin in 2012. But he's also maintained that he "hates" the "experiment" and believes it will ultimately be detrimental to Colorado. In Washington, which will begin legal marijuana sales later this year, Gov. Jay Inslee (D) told The New York Times that while he understands some of the reasons for ending marijuana prohibition, he has concerns about the law's possible effects on children".


Meanwhile "same-sex marriage became legal in North Carolina on Friday, with a federal judge ordering the state to immediately set aside its ban. With a stroke of his pen in a Charlotte-based lawsuit, U.S. District Judge Max Cogburn of Asheville struck down the state's laws restricting marriage to a man and a woman". In doing so, he erased Amendment One, the country's last voter-approved, constitutional marriage ban, and a cultural, spiritual and political lightning rod in North Carolina. Doing so against the will of the people of the State when North Carolina's Marriage Amendment also known as Amendment One it was passed by a voter margin of two to one or specifically 61.04% to 38.96% or in real numbers 1,317,178 for the ban against same-sex and 840,802 in favor. The same held true in the State's Legislature with the House passing the measure by a vote of 75 to 42 and the Senate doing likewise by a count of 30 to 16.


It would seem that the sale of Marijuana and Gay marriage have nothing in common but consider this, the Gov. of Colorado and the Justice Department has said that it was the "will of the people" of the State who passed the measure by only a 10% margin thus setting policy for the entire State. Keep in mind that marijuana use, sale and distribution is still against Federal law. At the same time Constitutional Marriage amendments like the one in North Carolina and several other States which were passed by an overwhelming majority as illustrated above are being set aside by activist judges. What about the "will of the people" in these States on this issue it is ludicrous that one- person could dismiss the votes of 1.3 million people and only goes to show the level of hypocrisy in Government.

Time's up.
