The Golden Compass aims to subvert the faith of children

A new movie in December called the Golden Compass (Starring Nicole Kidman ) is coming out. It is written by Phillip Pullman, a proud atheist and who belongs to secular humanist societies. He hates C.S. Lewis's The Chronicals of Narnia and has written a triology to show the other side. The movie has been dumbed down to fool kids and their parents in the hope that they will buy his trilogy where in the end, THE CHILDREN KILL GOD, and everyone can do as they please. Nicole Kidman stars in this movie, so it will probably be advertised alot. This is just a friendly warning that you sure wont hear on regular tv.

Look this up on SNOPES....see below link!

Robed Royalty Suspend Kansas Grand Jury Law

Flash …KS Supreme Court suspends Kansas law…Citizens Grand Jury by Petition usurped…

According to today’s news story below the Kansas Supreme court has issued a temporary injunction against a grand jury in Wichita from being impaneled to investigate allegations of abortionist George Tiller…

Indications seem to be that the KS Supreme court wants those same Wichita judges that found the citizen petition to be in proper form to now go beyond the boundary’s set by the legislature, stop the summoning of a lawfully petitioned grand jury and have select judges inquire now into the allegations. This crosses the line as stated by the KS Statute that the judges only authority at this point is to find the petition in order, or not. The very intent of the grand jury process is for the people to inquire into probable cause when authorities will not. Corruption is at the heart of the reason for a citizens grand jury petition system.

Excerpt from KS Statute 22-3001 “The judge or judges of the district court of the county shall then consider the petition and, if it is found that the petition is in proper form and bears the signatures of the required number of electors, a grand jury shall be ordered to be summoned.”

Possible legislative showdown in Kansas? Federal court intervention? Stay Strong, Phillip

Court temporarily halts Tiller grand jury

The Associated Press

Published Friday, October 26, 2007

The Kansas Supreme Court has temporarily blocked the start of a Sedgwick County grand jury to investigate abortion provider George Tiller.

The court’s order today stops the grand jury from starting its work until the court can decide if the panel should convene. The grand jury had been scheduled to begin its work next Tuesday.

The order by Chief Justice Kay McFarland was in response to a petition filed by Dr. Tiller, who is one of the nation’s few late-term abortion providers.

Abortion opponents accuse Tiller of violating a 1998 state law restricting late-term abortions, an allegation his attorneys repeatedly have said is unfounded.

Brownback backs out

Sam appears to be bowing out of the presidential race.

I marched with him in parades when he made his first run for Congress and think a lot of him, but even I couldn't get too jazzed about his presidential prospects. I'm glad he's backing out, which may provide some steam to Huckabee and boost him toward becoming a first tier candidate.

He now has his sights on the governorship, and that's where it probably should have been all along. I'm looking forward to congratulating Governor Brownback!

Condoms in our schools

Topeka High School puts a basket full of condoms out for anybody who wants one, and by the end of each day that basket is nearly empty.

Read the story here.

I'm sure these school officials are well intentioned, and they see the reality of sexual activity more than we do, but usurping parental authority and making it EASIER to engage in risky sexual activity is not the purpose of our public schools. My tax dollars are buying condoms that enable kids to do something they shouldn't be doing, and make them feel safer while doing it.

I'm glad my kids' school isn't doing that. Of course, they're too young at this point and when they do "come of age" I hope they'll live up to the purity I expect of them and God expects of them. But if I go visit my kids' school and see a basket of condoms on the counter, I will blow a gasket. Guaranteed. There are other places to go for kids who are sexually active.

Schools act as if they can't teach morality in schools, but how is handing a kid a condom NOT teaching them a moral lesson?

The Grand Jury Gap

By Phillip Cosby:

If there is one thing we all as Americans are dismayed at it is the decreasing number of citizens engaged and participating in our government. Is it that they feel increasingly disconnected or powerless to effect change?

In the last four years in Kansas about nine grand juries have been petitioned by the people. Some would tell you the sky is falling and scream “abuse” even when those grand juries, after examining the evidence are delivering indictments. Is the unpredictable chaos of common people being within reach of a lever of power unsettling to elites?

Let’s compare apples with apples. In Kansas, grand juries are only impaneled by a petition of the people or by a majority of the judges in a particular judicial district (even more rare). In Missouri grand juries are “standing,” that is in many MO counties (like Clay & Jackson Counties) every six months a new grand jury is sworn in. Missouri prosecutors are constantly putting cases before those GJs to seek indictments. In Missouri in any given year there are hundreds of Grand Juries. It is commonplace, routine... almost boring. Nine grand juries in Kansas in four years vs. hundreds in a year in Missouri. “Abuse” is not the correct word in Kansas, it is novel, rare and unique.

Who in America would demand that such a pure form of access to the judicial branch of government be moved further out of reach of the people? The Kansas legislators believed that the common people should have access to power and have put within their reach one way to touch the system. Just because some special interests don’t like a subject of investigation, would you deny the people that right of access to power or leave all power in the hands of elites. Sometimes you just got to trust common people to move when elected officials don’t have the political character, a true measure of citizen concerns or the will to enforce the law. Do we really want to relegate all power to the state?

Abortion opponents seek grand jury to investigate clinic


A coalition of abortion opponents wants a grand jury formed to investigate whether Planned Parenthood's Overland Park clinic is complying with state abortion laws.

The Life Is for Everyone (LIFE) coalition, which is circulating a petition, says it has reason to believe that Planned Parenthood of Kansas and Mid-Missouri and its Comprehensive Health clinic in Overland Park might be violating the law.

"There's too much controversy surrounding Planned Parenthood at this point," said Troy Newman, president of anti-abortion group Operation Rescue. "I think an independent grand jury can get to the bottom of it."

Group files complaint against Tiller

From the Capital Journal:

An anti-abortion group filed a complaint today with state regulators against Dr. George Tiller. It alleges the high-profile Wichita abortion provider broke state law and gave a patient substandard care.

Operation Rescue based its complaint on medical records from Michelle Armesto, a Topeka resident who testified during a legislative committee hearing on abortion last month. She said she received an abortion from Tiller’s clinic in May 2003.

KC Star Cartoon Displays Dismay at Abortion Activists

In an update received by Phillip Cosby of National Coalition for the Protection of Families:

The news media recently has had a flurry of coverage concerning our fight against the sex industry. As usual the stories are never as I would write them but all in all it has been interesting and not too many surprises. Some telling of the facts are better that others.

I want to call your attention to today KC Stars political cartoon. The drawing is of two men charging a great house and door with a large log.

The captions explain that these are conservatives charging the abortion industry's fortress (Planned Parenthood) with a battering ram called “Abuse of the Grand Jury Process”. As you may know by now the pro-life movement has awakened to the power of the grand jury petition process. I cheer them on…

I had to chuckle at the thought of someone being so dismayed at a group of concerned citizens using the legal system to investigate a public injustice. That is exactly what Kansas lawmakers envisioned and encouraged when the power to participate in the legal system was legislated awarding a grand jury by petition process. It is a very pure form of a government "of, by and for the people" that engages the judicial system.

Although the KC Star may intend such caricatures to mock, I want you to imagine this same political cartoon and place this caption below it….Mt 16:18b…”and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it”…

We are a people that seeks justice, turns on light, dispels darkness, goes on the offensive and tears down walls. Lord,help us to not take the road for the timid that would shrink back from adversity.
