Integrity Always Wins!

A homeless man in Boston was honored Monday for flagging down police after he discovered a bag filled with $2,400 in cash and nearly $40,000 in travelers checks, The Boston Globe reported.

Last summer, Glen James, who is in his 50s and lives in a homeless shelter, noticed a young man at the South Bay plaza in Boston leave behind a large bag, the report said. James observed the bag’s contents, and alerted police because “God has always very well looked after me.”

“Even if I were desperate for money, I would not have kept even a penny,” he wrote in a statement due to embarrassment about a speech impediment.

James received a citation from Boston’s police commissioner and there has been a website made, www.gofundme.com/4by2as,  to raise money for James, who said he receives food stamps and panhandles at times because “It’s just nice to have some money in one’s pockets so that as a homeless man I don’t feel absolutely broke all the time.”

Sex Activists: Angry We Can’t Run Lewd, Nude, Crude down the streets of Dallas…

DALLAS, September 13, 2013 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Dallas-area homosexual activists reacted with anger and disappointment this week after city officials pledged to crack down on lewdness and nudity at the annual gay pride parade.

While past parades have featured bare-breasted women and men in tight, wet underwear with visible genitalia, Dallas law enforcement said the city will no longer turn a blind eye to such violations of city and state law.

The pride parade rules now state: “In accordance with the city of Dallas public nudity ordinance,
parade participants must not expose genitalia, buttocks, or female breasts.”

Additionally the rules say that, “In accordance with state of Texas obscenity law, sexual paraphernalia, real or simulated sex acts and genital or phallic representations are prohibited from the parade.”

City officials, along with the event’s organizers, said they want the pride parade to be more “family friendly.”

Michael Doughman, executive director of the Tavern Guild, which organizes the parade, said, “police [have] looked the other way for years and years and years, but public lewdness and nudity in public is not going to continue to be tolerated.”

“You certainly can still express yourself, but unfortunately if your way of expressing yourself is to be naked or to be aroused in public, then it’s inappropriate, and I think most of the community agrees with that,” he said.

In order to prevent a similar occurrence during this year’s parade, it has been decided that participants must wear swimsuits at a minimum – not underwear.

That has some homosexual activists outraged.

American Idol Finalist Mandisa, Inspired by Simon Cowell Remark, Shows Off 100-Pound Weight Loss

Talk about turning a negative into a positive!

While appearing on Monday’s Good Morning America, gospel singer and American Idol season five contestant Mandisa not only showed off a slimmer figure, but the 35-year-old performer also revealed what led her to make such a change.

Mandisa recalled how it was actually a less-than-kind remark made by then-judge Simon Cowell that served as a motivator.

“It was hurtful and mean and the one thing I didn’t want to have happen,” she said.

The Cowell comment in question—”Do we have a bigger stage this year?”—came right after Mandisa had made it through to Hollywood following her 2006 audition.

Mandisa subsequently became very physically active by way of the workout dance class Zumba, and now the three-time Grammy-nominated artist has shed a total of 120 pounds.

As for Cowell, Mandisa forgave him a long time ago and said she would make that clear to him if their paths ever crossed again.

“I’ve been forgiven for so much. I can extend that same grace to him,” Mandisa said. “But then I would follow it up and say, ‘How ya like me now?’”reg_1024.mandisa.ls.82712_copy

Russia: Kerry and Obama should stop lying about the chemical weapons…

BERLIN — Russia says it has compiled a 100-page report detailing what it says is evidence that Syrian rebels, not forces loyal to President Bashar Assad, were behind a deadly sarin gas attack in an Aleppo suburb earlier this year.

In a statement posted on the Russian Foreign Ministry’s website late Wednesday. Russia said the report had been delivered to the United Nations in July and includes detailed scientific analysis of samples that Russian technicians collected at the site of the alleged attack, Khan al Asal.

Russia said its investigation of the March 19 incident was conducted under strict protocols established by the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons, the international agency that governs adherence to treaties prohibiting the use of chemical weapons. It said samples that Russian technicians had collected had been sent to OPCW-certified laboratories in Russia.

The report itself was not released. But the statement drew a pointed comparison between what it said was the scientific detail of the report and the far shorter intelligence summaries that the United States, Britain and France have released to justify their assertion that the Syrian government launched chemical weapons against Damascus suburbs on Aug. 21.

Chicago Public Schools: Sex for 5 year olds… NOW!

 

From Dr. Susan Berry at Breitbart.com

Chicago’s Public Schools (CPS) met or exceeded reading and math standards this year, the district will now demand that kindergartners set aside 30 minutes per month for sex-education classes.

According to the Chicago local CBS affiliate, some parents aren’t happy about their young children being taught about sex at school.

“I want to know what kind of education she is receiving before she gets that education,” said Stella Yang, the mother of a kindergartner. “As a parent, I have a right to know.”

CPS officials say the sex-ed curriculum will use age-appropriate language to teach children about correct names for body parts, bullying, and the difference between appropriate and inappropriate touching.

Chief Health Officer at CPS Stephanie Whyte said, “As you identify body parts, you talk about should you be touched here or not. And if someone touches you, and it’s uncomfortable, you should tell a trusted adult.”

Another parent, Ayesha Ahmad, said, “I’m with it. I’d like to believe it’s not necessary, but I think our culture dictates you can’t start early enough.”

While teaching young children about respect for others and how to get help if they may be in a potentially abusive situation is one issue, the sex ed curriculum kindergartners in CPS will be exposed to will also teach them about same-sex relationships, a topic that many others believe should be handled in the home.

According to the CBS local report, students will also be taught about “different family structures that exist in today’s society.”

“Whether that means there’s two moms at home, everyone’s home life is different, and we introduce the fact that we all have a diverse background,” said Whyte.

Some parents have concerns about topics like homosexuality being taught in the classroom.

“If he has questions, I’m happy to answer them, but I’m not sure it belongs in a classroom setting,” said Brooke Lyon.

Story 1:

SHINER, TX (WWBT) – A Texas grand jury decided not to charge a father who reportedly beat a man to death for raping his 5-year-old daughter.

The 23-year-old man sent his son and daughter to feed the chickens at their ranch near Shiner on June 9, reports the Daily Mail, when the boy returned to tell his dad someone had grabbed his sister and dragged her to a secluded shack.

The man found 47-year-old Jesus Mora Flores and his daughter inside. Neither were wearing any underwear, according to Lavaca County sheriff’s deputies. The father, whose name is not being released to protect the girl’s identity, beat Flores unconscious. The man tried calling 911, but Flores died from his injuries.

The local sheriff said calls the man was remorseful and says he didn’t know at the time he had killed Flores. The sheriff refused to charge the father and a Lavaca County grand jury agreed.

Texas law allows deadly force to stop an aggravated sexual assault. Witness statements and 911 calls backed up the father’s version of events.

 

Story 2:

COLUMBUS, Ohio (September 4, 2013) – The man who held three women captive in his home for nearly a decade before one escaped and alerted authorities has been found dead and is believed to have committed suicide, a prison official said.

Ariel Castro, 53, was found hanging in his cell around 9:20 p.m. Tuesday at the Correctional Reception Center in Orient, located south of Columbus in central Ohio, JoEllen Smith, Department of Rehabilitation and Correction spokeswoman, said early Wednesday.

Prison medical staff performed CPR before Castro was transported to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead around 10:50 p.m.

He was in protective custody because of the notoriety of his case, meaning he was checked every 30 minutes, but was not on suicide watch, Smith said. She said suicide watch entails constant observation.

Castro was also watched closely in Cuyahoga County Jail in the several weeks after his arrest and before his case was resolved by a guilty plea, with logs noting his activity every 10 minutes. He was taken off county jail suicide watch in early June after authorities determined he was not a suicide risk.

Same Sex Attracted Pastors Push Back… in favor of God!

After Steve Chalke and Rob Bell joined the ‘Accepting Evangelicals’ Group in affirming faithful same-sex erotic relationships earlier this year a new group of ‘post-gay’ evangelical Christian leaders has emerged.

Their testimonies are clear, powerful, hugely encouraging and most welcome at a time when many young evangelicals are genuinely confused about the issue.

These are men in pastoral ministry who admit to feelings of same sex attraction but who also see the Bible’s prohibitions on same-sex relationships as non-negotiable.

The core of this new group, recently interviewed by Christianity magazine, are Sam Alberry, a church leader in Maidenhead, Sean Doherty, a tutor at St Mellitus College, and Ed Shaw, who helps to lead Emmanuel Church in Bristol.

They are shortly to launch a website called ‘Living Out’, aimed at helping others think through the realities of being same-sex attracted while remaining committed to a biblical sexual morality.

Doherty (pictured), who has experienced some degree of shift in his sexual feelings and is now married, explains how his own church experience helped him:

‘Church was a place of nurture and unconditional acceptance, but at the same time the teaching was clear that I shouldn’t act on those sexual desires. In an environment where young people were being encouraged to experiment, I was really grateful that I had been kept from acting on my feelings.’

He is reluctant to describe himself as gay and instead adopts terminology adopted by blogger Peter Ould who has a similar testimony:

‘I don’t speak of myself as an “ex-gay” person. I prefer the term “post-gay”. You choose to move away from the label of “gay” altogether, which has come to be associated with a certain lifestyle. I’ve clearly experienced some change in my feelings so that I am attracted to my wife. But it’s definitely not a 180-degree reorientation. All of us will continue to have desires and feelings which aren’t right, until Jesus returns.’

Alberry and Shaw share Doherty’s perspective, but accept that they will remain celibate if their orientation does not change.

Alberry previously posted an article titled ‘How can the Gospel be good news to gays?’ on the Gospel Coalition website, where he takes a firm biblical stance on the issue but argues strongly and compassionately that people with homosexual orientation need more grace and not less.

Last year Vaughan Roberts, a leading conservative evangelical, spoke for the first time of his own struggle with same-sex attraction in an interview with Evangelicals Now. His testimony is clear, biblical, passionate and pastoral and well worthy of study.

Alberry, Doherty and Shaw’s experience, and those of Ould and Roberts, underline the fact that there is a difference between experiencing same sex attraction and choosing to participate in homosexual erotic behaviour.
