Defending Christianity

bill adcockKENTUCKY (10/17/19) — Two federal judges have protected Christians’ rights. Iowa Univ. and its officers had kicked InterVarsity and some other religious groups off campus in June 2018. “Judge Stephanie M. Rose of the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Iowa, called the university's conduct ‘ludicrous’ and ‘incredibly baffling.’ ”  Judge Rose ruled, “that University of Iowa officials must pay out of their own pockets for discrimination against InterVarsity Christian Fellowship.”

Fox News reports that “Chief Judge Robert Jonker of the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Michigan (has) ruled for St. Vincent Catholic Charities, a faith based adoption agency.”  Judge Jonker said the Catholic adoption agency “should not be forced by the state to place adoptive children with homosexual couples. To do so would violate the agency's sincerely held Christian convictions about
marriage and family.”

“Beshear was asked (by The Lexington Herald Leader) if he supports Bevin’s call for Kentucky school students to bring the Bible to school on Thurs. (Oct. 3) and share it with others.

“I’m a person of strong faith and believe that everybody should be able to exercise their faith whether kids or adults,” answered Beshear. “We have to do it in a respectful way where everybody’s faith is respected and appreciated and everybody’ has the space and opportunity to practice it as they choose.”

Seems Beshear didn’t know ‘Bring Your Bible to School’ had gone viral across the U.S.A.  I can hear Judge Judy telling Andy, “That’s a yes or no question!”

Barnes & Noble is selling a kids book attacking the current U.S. President, not the position of the president, but the president. It is a parody that's using kids' style drawings but is being sold to kids
titled, “If You Give a Pig the White House” by Faye Kanouse. I taught kiddos for 28-years, and you don't use parody with younger children. That's shameful.

And it's shameful what the National Education Association did last summer. As a Kentucky retired teacher, I called the NEA corporate office in D.C. about a position they took by sanctioning abortion at their July, 2019, convention. The NEA representative in D.C. did not even listen to me as a one opposed to abortion. She hung up on me. That was disrespectful.

NEA exhibited an unprofessional attitude as did Barnes & Noble by publishing a book for young kids that shows disrespect for our president. Young kids are not old enough to understand parody. Specifically, I am saying NEA and Barnes & Noble need to be shamed. So, shame on you.
