.'How Do You Kill 11 Million People?'

'The answer is breathtakingly simple. And it is a method still being used by some elected leaders to achieve various goals today. Lie to them.'

Donald J. Trump: a friend to Evangelicals, U.S. -- and Israel

The Trump-Pence ticket needs to win the White House to 'make American great again.'

This election decision is based on Trump's abilities, the 2016 Republican Party Platform and Trump's embrace of Evangelicals by selecting Indianna Governor Mike Pence as vice-president.

Trump has 'America first' vision: strong economy, business tax relief, a U.S. -Mexico wall, national security, Second Amendment rights and respect for our veterans.

Genocide is offensive -- not Trump tweets

Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump's tweets are tagged 'offensive.'

'Offensive' is Islamic State and Boko Haram committing acts of genocide freely for over two years -- beheadings, mass executions and rape -- on Christians, other religious families and peoples in the Middle East and Nigeria while America slept on President Obama's watch.

That is 'offensive.'

'Offensive' is the U.S. Supreme Court in a 5-4 decision on June 26, 2015, sanctioning homosexual marriage, equating it to traditional marriage and civil rights and snubbing 30 state constitutional amendments that validated only marriage between one man and one woman.

'Offensive' is president Barak Obama authorizing the White House to be lit up in the six colors of the LGBT flag in celebration of the SCOTUS decision and promote the practice of homosexuality to the 'children in the room,' to our allies -- and enemies. 

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports 1.2 million Americans are infected with HIV,  156,000 are unaware of their infection and therefore 44,000 Americans were infected in 2014 -- 25,000 aged 13 to 24 didn't know they were HIV positive.

'Offensive' is the church's failure to discipline judges, state lawmakers and vice-presidents who separate faith from public policy. 

Betrayal to God and our Constitution is offensive. Sin is offensive. Genocide is offensive. 

Trump's 3 a.m. tweets mock the fourth estates' twisted focus.

379 companies underestimate American values, God

Three hundred and seventy-nine of America's finest companies are putting the cart before the horse -- and their employees in the unemployment line -- by favoring same sex marriage in a friend-of-the-court brief filed March 5th.

Yet, the jury is not out on whether the state of homosexuality is due to birth, choice, environment -- or a combination of all three.

The Bible's answer is it falls in the spectrum of a sin nature, the result of a fallen and cursed world in which "all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God" (Romans 8:23).

However, acting out homosexuality -- like acting out fornication, adultery, pedophilia, bestiality, or murder -- is warned in the Bible to be a sin severe enough to be punishable by death.

America is a society founded and structured according to a belief in God and Judeo-Christian ethics.

Yet, these 379 American companies petitioned the U.S. Supreme Court to rule same-sex marriages as the law of the land in order to save themselves bookkeeping headaches and to attract same-sex married applicants and their families.

In the process of filing friend-of-the-court briefs, these otherwise intelligent company CEOs are throwing out common sense, biology, health risks, the rights of children, tradition, the Bible and God.

Yes, and maybe even their employees jobs.

No American-based company, not a Bank of America, Microsoft or Google, is too big to fail or suffer revenue loss when it comes to an outright attempted takeover of the American public, the rights of children -- and God.

As one evangelist preached: "Prayer and witnessing are the best secret weapons" a Christian has to change hearts and change society. We agree. But America is full of choices of where to spend and invest money.

Avoid "The 379."

Boycott 'The 379'

Ninety to 100 million evangelicals need to ask themselves, "Do I really need Facebook, Twitter and Target? Do I need Coca-Cola, Starbucks, Staples or Bank of America?

These seven companies and 372 others petitioned the U.S. Supreme Court to overrule 30 state marriage amendments and redefine marriage to include same-sex couples with full adoption rights. The 379 said in the their friend of the court brief it would improve their recruitment and bookkeeping for all states to recognize same-sex marriages and families.

We disagree. We don't believe redefining "marriage" and "family" is inherently a constitutional right. Historical documents prove our Founding Fathers had Judeo-Christian morals in mind when they wrote "freedom" and "pursuit of happiness," and even to the Fourteenth Amendment's equal protection clause -- that the original intent of these rights were not a license to sin.
