A hug from a little boy can brighten up your day

Something unusual and unexpected just happened to me:

I was dropping off an order for a customer at a nearby UPS store. Placing the package on the scale, I waited while the UPS employee, a young woman, gave me my receipt.

After she hands it to me and I’m about to turn to leave, a cherub faced, curly haired two year old little boy comes racing out of the back. He rushes up to me with his arms outstretched, wanting a hug.

I was dumbfounded, completely taken by surprise. I thought, “He must think I’m someone else” as I stood there, motionless, feeling a bit embarrassed by the whole scene. He stayed in front of me, his arms still out for his hug.

Realizing the woman who just handed me my receipt was his mom, I said to her, “Very friendly!” and reached down and gave the boy a hug.

Now, I’m a man, and situations like this leave men a bit uncomfortable, especially in a scenario like this one. I did not know the mom or her son, and because the situation just sprang up out of nowhere, I was not prepared for it.

As I jumped into my truck after exiting the store, I was moved by what this precious little boy did. I have three daughters, all long grown and separated by time and unfortunate circumstances; I can’t remember the last time I was hugged like that by a small, innocent child.

When I arrived home, I called that UPS store to thank the mom and share with her how touched I was by her son’s spontaneous, selfless act. She said she was worried about my reaction, but when I explained how moved and thankful I was, she expressed relief, gratitude and joy that her son could be the means of brightening someone’s day.

I thank the Lord for that curly haired little boy who gave me such an unexpected gift this morning that touched my soul and warmed my heart. With all the hatred, anger, suspicion and division that we face in this country seemingly every day, this random and “out of the blue” interaction with an innocent child was wonderful.

Did the Nazi’s mass murder homosexuals in death camps?

I’ve been fascinated by WW2 for decades and heard that Hitler instituted a “gay holocaust” against countless homosexuals.

Upon closer examination, this is a myth.

Like much of gay revisionism that seeks to perpetually cast homosexuals as helpless victims continually in need of protection, the carefully choreographed legend that homosexuals were special targets of Nazi brutality dissipates under careful scholarship.

In fact, contrary to the prevailing narrative that the ranks of the Nazi’s were dominated by “men’s men” (masculine, manly, straight, the Clint Eastwood type as portrayed in his movies), many of Hitler’s henchmen—and this  applies to Hitler himself—were sodomites.

I’m not saying these soldiers lacked bravery or were not formidable foes on the battlefield; for the most part, they were loyal, accomplished men of war whose commitment to Germany and exploits on the battlefield were exemplary in many instances.

But many of them were also cruel and sadistic, modern barbarians who were responsible for some of the most heinous crimes against humanity known in the history of mankind.

Few people are aware that the Nazi party was founded primarily by active homosexuals; it is disputed whether or not Hitler himself was a practicing homosexual, especially during the time before he rose to power in Germany.

That both Hitler and many in his Nazi party were homosexuals is not a fact members of the LGBTQ community desire to have promulgated; such facts do not bode well for their agenda of normalizing—even glorifying—the nefarious “sin against nature” from sea to shining sea in the United States.

For those interested in this topic, I will include a link to the excellent book, “The Pink Swastika” by Scott Lively and Kevin Abrams.  Here is a link to a website where you can download much of the book—the 4th edition—for free.

Here is the chapter which debunks the myth that homosexuals were murdered/incarcerated/tortured en masse in death camps.

Here it is on Amazon.

A well researched book as explosive as this  will have its share of critics; facts presented here throws cold water on the false narratives constantly pushed by the LGBTQ revisionists seeking to normalize sexual deviancy.

Those familiar with the tactics of the LGBTQ movement to discredit, ridicule, defame and spread falsehoods against anyone brave enough to publicly expose their immoral agenda should be aware that their tried and proven smear tactics have gone into overdrive to discredit the “Pink Swastika.”

For example, from a Wikipedia article:

“The book, in which the authors argue that homosexuality in the Nazi Party contributed to the extreme militarism of Nazi Germany, has been widely debunked and drawn extensive criticism from historians.”

Interestingly, the reference that Wikipedia uses to support this allegation is from an article in the apparently pro-gay news outlet called “Boston Magazine.”  This article then references another article from the Advocate,  a well known cheerleader for all things gay—hardly a non-biased source—that supposedly “thoroughly debunked” Lively and Abrams book.

Lively counters with this statement:

“Since we first published this exhaustively documented history book in 1995 we’ve challenged all critics to debate the facts in any neutral unedited forum but never had a single taker.  And in 23 years of fake news coverage of the book, not a single liberal ‘journalist’ has ever accepted our challenge to actually fact-check it point by point and report their findings to the public.”  

What comes from this back and forth debate on whether or not the “Pink Swastika” is “fake history” or not is to read it yourself, check out its abundant references, and make your own decision.


The Supreme Court rules in favor of Christian baker

Like most Christians, I rejoice that the Supreme Court rightly decided for the Christian baker.

But the problem remains the same: why does this country look to unelected lawyers in black robes to determine what is right and wrong? Who are they to tell anyone whether or not they can refuse to bake a cake for someone whose message they find offensive to their sincerely held religious beliefs?

Antonin Scalia, in his dissent in the infamous Obergefell v Hodges ruling legalizing “same sex” marriage, wrote:

“…So it is not of special importance to me what the law says about marriage. It is of overwhelming importance, however, who it is that rules me. Today’s decree says that my Ruler, and the Ruler of 320 million Americans coast-to-coast, is a majority of the nine lawyers on the Supreme Court. The opinion in these cases is the furthest extension in fact—and the furthest extension one can even imagine—of the Court’s claimed power to create “liberties” that the Constitution and its Amendments neglect to mention. This practice of constitutional revision by an unelected committee of nine, always accompanied (as it is today) by extravagant praise of liberty, robs the People of the most important liberty they asserted in the Declaration of Independence and won in the Revolution of 1776: the freedom to govern themselves.”

To give nine elected and unaccountable lawyers the power to decide such issues is what has helped plunge this country into the abyss of moral relativism and wickedness. While we rejoice in this ruling, we mourn the others legalizing abortion, sodomy based “marriage,” the posting of the 10 commandments made illegal in public schools, etc.

Never did our founding fathers intend for the Supreme Court of the United States to usurp and supplant the will of the people expressed through laws made by our elected representatives. That we wring our hands in anticipation of how the “Supreme Court will rule” on issues of national importance shows how far we have sunk as a republic.



Today, June 6, 2018, the last of the six defendants was served with my Complaint.  This step is crucial because these six defendants, by law, must be put on notice that a lawsuit has been initiated against them.

As in any lawsuit, there are certain time parameters that must be followed.  In my case, I had 90 days after I filed my initial Complaint (which I did on March 8, 2018) to serve all the defendants or the suit would be dismissed.

Now, all of the six defendants named in my lawsuit have received a copy of my Complaint within the statutory time limit set by the rules.  This means my suit goes forward; the next move will be for each of the defendants to respond.

Follow the Money (Part Two)

On Facebook today, I stumbled upon a post that linked to this story about Jesse Duplantis:

I first saw Duplantis many years ago and immediately this man made my skin crawl.  Back then, he made himself out to be some kind of Christian comedian, but the words that came out of his irreverent mouth instantly showed me he was simply another, typical, run of the mill, dime a two-dozen, phony evangelical huckster out to fleece the flock of God for—you guessed it—money.

Duplantis’ true god is not the God of the Old and New Testaments but the number one false god of America:  the greenback.  If huckster’s like Duplantis could make the same money off of the name of, say, Satan, you can rest assure he would switch in an instant.

But the equally amazing and sad aspect of this story is that this phony is in business and stays in business because of only one reason:  God’s people.  They are the one’s reaching ever deeper into their pocketbooks to fund his extravagant lifestyle.

Remember what I wrote in part one of my previous post?  “Follow the money.”  This is, in a nutshell, all one needs to determine the methods and madness of so much of what passes for “Christianity” in America.

Why do Christians support this buffoon, this false teacher and blasphemer?  What is it about this fool that is so appealing to people that, not only do they support him, but give him hundreds, even thousands, of their hard-earned dollars?

Men like Duplantis do not fear God.  I believe men and women who paddle around in the same foul swamp he does fall into one of two categories:  they either hate God with a passion or they don’t believe in Him at all.  No one who has an ounce of genuine love and fear of God could possibly conduct themselves in the manner in which these charlatans do.

I return to my original point for emphasis:  follow the money.  Understand that money is what drives these fakes, fuels their passions, and defines and guides their every move.  Their love and adoration of money is what causes them to wake up every morning, scheming of new scams to part the faithful with their hard-earned coin.

Let me tell you a true story from my own life:

When I was in my early late teens, early twenties, I met a young man a couple of years older.  Walking across a street one day in the crosswalk, on his way to church, he was struck by a car that threw him about 100 feet.  How he survived is one of those unexplained miracles of life.

In a body cast for almost a year, he was never able to walk again without the use of a cane or crutches.  He was in the peak prime of his life when he was struck.

Because he was legally crossing the street in a crosswalk and the driver (an elderly woman if memory serves me correctly) was 100% at fault, he received a huge settlement.  I never found out how much nor asked, but back then, in the late 70’s, it was probably close to a million dollars.

After receiving his settlement, he lived an extravagant lifestyle, purchasing fancy cars, a nice truck, several homes, ate healthy foods, bought expensive guitars, etc.  And he was very generous to tele-evangelists, giving untold amounts of money to these con artists.

One of their “hooks” these crooks used to part my friend from his money was their teaching on divine healing.  One can understand how he would be particularly vulnerable to being flimflammed in this manner because he was struck down in the prime of his life and yearned to be restored to the abundant health he once enjoyed.

His money lasted almost three decades before he eventually spent every penny.  He is now on welfare and has been living on the taxpayer’s dime for years.

I never learned nor asked how many multiplied tens of thousands of dollars, perhaps over a hundred thousand dollars or more, he gave to these spiritual criminals.  All I know is that, slowly but surely, every single cent that he received from that hard-earned settlement disappeared.

Nor have I ever sat down with him and inquired how he feels about this, if whether or not he blames God for his own lack of wisdom and proper stewardship over the money he received and eventually squandered.  Such topics are difficult to bring up, even with friends.

Like so many situations in our lives, this one is like an onion, with many layers winding round and around the circumstances and decisions of our pilgrimage on this planet.  Did my friend give away a fair percentage of his fortune because he was bargaining with God, believing the tele-evangelist’s lie of the “thousand fold blessing”?

Was it out of selfishness that he sent countless checks in the money to these degenerates?  Through improper motives?  Only him and God knows, and people like myself, observing this train wreck from oftentimes close quarters, can only speculate as to why he threw away so much on absolutely nothing.

I write the following with no sense of pride, understanding that in this particular, narrow aspect of my life, I made a wise choice:  never was I taken in by these “Christian” crooks.  It was glaringly obvious to me, even as a babe in Christ surviving on milk, that these people were wolves in sheep’s clothing.  I would no sooner give them one dollar than I would toss a buck in the commode and flush it down the sewer.

Incredibly, millions of people don’t think like I do, and hopefully, like you do.  What is so obvious to me, like the sun shining in its glory on a cloudless summer afternoon, is that these people are villains in the truest sense of the word.  They are as guilty as Bernie Sanders and need to occupy a cell right along with him.

My friends story, though tragic, is not uncommon; it can be multiplied an endless amount of times.  Hopefully, none of my readers will end up in the poorhouse due to making similar unwise choices as my friend.

First Amendment lawsuit against UA ramps up

In 2017, I was arrested at the University of AZ and thrown in jail. My great crime? I refused to stop preaching at the annual Tucson Festival of Books while using my small, battery operated amplification system.

All around me, people were using far more powerful electrified amplification systems to sell their books, put on author presentations, perform music, etc. I was singled out specifically for censor because of my message: the importance and popularity of the Bible as the number one selling book in the world.

Many know what is happening to Christians and free speech on university campuses across the United States: both are being targeted for extinction…especially Christians. Our message, our morals, and our God are neither wanted nor tolerated.

I’m fighting back against this unjust arrest, having already filed a federal civil rights case three months ago. This has become the most complicated court case I have been involved in and will consume at least one to two years of my life on top of the year and a half I’ve already given to it.

But the stakes are huge. If I win, preachers in our ninth circuit will have strong ammunition on their side to also freely amplify the gospel message on university and college campuses, with certain commonsense restrictions.

Unfortunately, I could not find a Christian law firm interested in taking this case on a “pro bono” basis. This means they would take the case for free, but if I won, they would be paid, handsomely and in full, at settlement.

I had a law firm initially representing me, but after paying almost $2,000 in fees and receiving little if nothing in return, with the lawyer wanting thousands more, I decided to fight alone.

This week was critical. I served the Summons and First Amended Complaint on the five defendants at the UA responsible for my illegal arrest and incarceration. The other defendant, the AZ Board of Regents, who is responsible for the illegal actions of their rogue employees who arrested me, will be served on Monday.

It saddens me to realize how few Christians will fight for their blood bought rights won for us by our godly ancestors, rights that we are rapidly losing here in the United States. I made a decision decades ago that I would fight, and fight every step of the way, for every square inch of ground, no matter what it costs, how long it takes, or whether or not I ultimately prevail in the end.

It is not necessarily for winning why we fight, but that we will love our Lord and our faith enough that we will fight for Him and for His great cause and reputation. We fight because it is the right thing to do and it is part and parcel of being a soldier for Christ and fulfilling our role as men.

When all is said and done, it is an honor and a privilege, no matter if I win or lose, to fight for my King and my God.

The video below was from the 2012 Festival. I did not get arrested then because I agreed to shut off my amplification system. At this point, in 2012, I did not have the knowledge of first amendment law dealing specifically with amplification in public areas as I did when I was arrested in 2017. This video will show what I am up against:
