  • PASTORS IN PRISON

    Oct 29, 2010

    by: Rick Scarborough

    Your pastor has been imprisoned. Not a physical prison, but a prison of lies that is stopping the church from being salt and light. Let me give you some background, and then I’m going to ask you to join me in freeing pastors who have been imprisoned all across America. I could write a book on this, but time is short and the need is urgent, so I’ll be as brief as I can.

  • Liberals Want to Control Texas and Redefine America

    Oct 05, 2010

    by: Rick Scarborough

    Next year Texas will receive four additional Congressional Seats in the House of Representatives. Currently Republicans hold a slim three vote majority in the Texas House of Representatives and the party that holds the majority in the Texas House will control how the new seats are allocated through redistricting. Both parties decry the politics involved in redistricting, but the fact remains that either the Republicans or the Democrats will draw those lines and you can rest assured they will draw them up in such a way to affect outcomes.

  • DISCLOSE - The Shred The 1st Amendment To Re-Elect Incumbents Act

    Jun 29, 2010

    All of the left's efforts to destroy America are cloaked in the language of reform, good government and the public interest. Thus, it should come as no surprise that its latest attempt to steal the 2010 Congressional election is grandiosely titled the "Democracy Is Strengthened By Casting Light On Spending in Elections Act"---or the DISCLOSE Act.

Plans to build a $100-million, 13-story mega-mosque and "Islamic center" near the site of Ground Zero in Manhattan - approved last week by the Planning Commission of Lower Manhattan -- are no less offensive and absurd.

    by: Rick Scarborough

    On April 20, 2010, police arrested Dale McAlpine, a 42-year-old Baptist street preacher in Britain for telling a passerby -- in earshot of a policewoman -- that God views homosexuality as a sin. Under Britain's Public Order Act 1986, which forbids "using threatening, abusive or insulting words ... tending to and causing harassment, alarm or distress," he will face a criminal trial at a date yet to be determined. McAlpine was fingerprinted, given a DNA swab and retina scan, and was locked in a police cell for seven hours.

    Mar 02, 2010

    by: Rick Scarborough

    Like many of you, I watched and listened with growing anger as the President and his accomplices made it clear during the seven-hour Summit on Thursday, that they have every intention of moving forward with their plans to nationalize healthcare, regardless of the will of the American people they were called to serve. It is now crystal clear that this televised meeting was more about providing cover for a pre-determined outcome, than working toward mutually agreed upon solutions.

    by: Rick Scarborough

    Recently we discovered that the ACLU, under the guise of seeking justice for Guantanamo detainees (our latest euphemism for terrorists who blow up people and buildings for a living), have been routinely revealing classified information to the suspected terrorist by showing them pictures of undercover operatives so that they could finger who "tortured" them while in detention. By revealing the names and identities of our CIA operatives, the ACLU and their lawyers have risked not only the lives of these career public servants, but their entire families as well.

They receive compensation in excess of $172,000 plus benefits and each have staffs of 10+ people. They have as much power as any cabinet but have absolutely no accountability to Congress whatsoever, ignoring the Constitutional mandate to do so. They are accountable to no one except the President.

A faithful life is the fruit of a cultivated walk with God, which is what Chris lives out every morning in his routine time of prayer and Bible Study. It is during that time that God lay on his heart to begin the Red Envelope Project.

He said, “I am a strong supporter of stem cell research, “ and had promised to “restore scientific integrity to policy-making.” This week he signed an executive order to overturn President Bush’s eight-year ban on funding embryonic stem cell research with federal dollars.

    Governor Bill Richardson said the Christian Right would not stop his agenda this time. He was determined to give homosexuals what they wanted…legitimacy for their abhorrent behavior. Millions of dollars were spent in New Mexico by the national and state leaders of the radical homosexual agenda so they could have a big victory to undermine the traditional family.

    Recently Hugo Chavez, known anti-American and Marxist, was made dictator for life in Venezuela. This week his top opponent there, Alejandro Pena-Exclusa, is coming to America to meet with the government, media, academic and religious leaders in a sincere effort to warn us that those in support of Chavez are violently seeking control of Latin America. It is a well-known fact that the southern border of the United States is weakening and violence and unrest are rampant there.

And the famous Joe Biden quote during the Presidential campaign, “Paying your taxes is your patriotic duty.” Then later, he is quoted that “…supporting a tax hike is the American thing to do.” Democratic linguist George Lakoff proclaims, “Taxes are what you pay to be an American!”

    Jonah Goldberg documents in his best-selling book, Liberal Fascism, how liberals need a crisis to in order to push their agenda forward, whether it’s a declared war on poverty or a real war. During a perceived or real crisis people make decisions that reflect the seriousness of their situation. Christians have the wonderful advantage of calling on an all-sufficient Creator to provide guidance through the crisis. Crisis can force us to a place of fully placing all of our trust in God and God alone.

    Barack Hussein Obama is now the 44th President of the United States of America. I watched with great interest as he was sworn into office. The crowd, the atmosphere and setting were awe-inspiring. Having lived in the era of separate but equal schools and separate water fountains for blacks and whites, I was touched by the scene. I attended segregated schools through the ninth grade and was in the first integrated graduating class at Galena Park High School in southeast Houston. And today, 40 years later America has its first African American as President. This speaks well of our country.

Everyone knows they have vast differences in their beliefs about same sex marriage, abortion and other issues, yet the move was designed to communicate to the nation and the world that good men can disagree on issues and still be friends.

    Since 1994 when Republicans took control of the House of Representatives democrats have been scheming on how to reintroduce the Freedom of Choice Act (FOCA). FOCA is the most radically pro-choice based piece of legislation ever proposed by lawmakers. It will eliminate any opposition in any way imaginable to a woman or girl that would want an abortion. It goes as far as to make it legally possibleto sue anyone who infringes on the right for someone to get an abortion in any way.

    Dear Friends, Some days, I wonder what is happening in America. The media reports daily on the impact of rising energy costs, as Congress fails to act. Yet, where are the news stories proclaiming "gasoline at $4.00 per gallon while Congress refuses to authorize offshore drilling - women, children and the poor hardest hit?" After the announcement that George W. Bush had removed the executive order prohibiting the drilling for oil right here in America, and called on the democratically controlled Congress to do the same, the price of crude oil plummeted nearly 12.5% from a quoted high of $147.27 on July 14 to $128.88 in one week - simply because the United States hintedthat we may remove the obstacles to domestic oil drilling.

    Dear Vision America Supporter, In a 7-4 decision in Planned Parenthood v. Rounds, the 8th Circuit Court of Appeals upheld a South Dakota law requiring abortionists to notify women seeking an abortion in writing that "abortion will terminate the life of a whole, separate, unique, living human being." They affirmed that the unborn child is human! This is a major move in making abortion history and a huge step towards overturning Roe v. Wade, the 1973 U.S. Supreme Court decision that opened up the abortion floodgates in America. The Court held that in order to challenge the statute, Planned Parenthood would have to prove the statement false, misleading or irrelevant. The organization offered no such evidence, because it couldn't--because none exists. Fetal development isn't a matter of opinion or conjecture; it is scientific fact.

It will never happen, some will say. And I pray they are right. But a nation pays the price for its actions. We are witnessing the ongoing destruction of the American family with skyrocketing divorce rates, sexually promiscuous middle-schoolers and parental rights decimated by judicial tyrants.

    A Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton presidential ticket? It may be right around the corner, now that Clinton has thrown her full, unqualified support to the Obama candidacy this past weekend. But she does have competition for that slot. Virginia Gov. Tim Kaine and Virginia Sen. Jim Webb are two highly prominent Democrats who have been frequently mentioned as possible Obama running mates. Kansas Gov. Kathleen Sebelius is another potential running mate who could pull some of the same voters that Clinton would pull to the ticket. However, in an interesting twist, CNN is reporting their poll that found 60 percent of Clinton supporters would support Obama, 17 percent would vote for McCain and 22 percent would not vote at all.

Mrs. Obama clearly identifies herself in her thesis as a “separationist" and not an integrationist. She states that there are clearly separate black and white societies in America and she elevates black over white.

As long as elected politicians lack the backbone to take a stand for the Constitution, we are reliant on judges to impose those Constitutional limits on themselves.

  • The Pro-Homosexual Gospel According to Obama

    Mar 14, 2008

    by: Rick Scarborough

    Clinton and Obama agree on the “change” they wish to bring to our nation--ushering in homosexual marriage and adoptions. The “change” Obama promises is more than his liberal social programs--he wants to change the teachings of Jesus and the Bible. It is refreshing that both parties are more openly discussing faith, and even Christianity, in this election cycle. Hopefully, people of faith will make informed decisions on who will lead our nation. Obama told a crowd last week that he believes the Sermon on the Mount justifies his support for legal recognition of homosexual unions. He also told the crowd that his position in favor of legalized abortion does not make him "less Christian.” He went on to say, "If people find that controversial then I would just refer them to the Sermon on the Mount, which I think is, in my mind, for my faith, more central than an obscure passage in Romans."

    HR 1424 would force employers who provide health-care coverage to provide “substance-related disorder benefits and mental health care coverage to treat cross-dressing, fetishism, pedophilia, necrophilia, gender identity disorders and more. It would give these deviant behaviors the same coverage as verifiable medical conditions—and force companies to pay for the coverage. In a time that many consider the beginning of a recession, this move would not only place a huge burden on our nations businesses, but it would also give equal status to deviant sexual behavior and medical conditions. When you couple this move with the current discussion on the campaign trail to establish universal, government-run health care, the long term potential of this move becomes even more troubling.

    Super Tuesday will be definitive for both parties as the field narrows down. While Clinton still has the national lead in polls, Obama won in South Carolina and received Kennedy's endorsement so he has an outside shot at the Democratic nomination. The departure of Edwards will have an interesting impact also. Giuliani has been the big loser. After months of double digit leads in 2007, his aloof treatment of early states has cost him as he banked everything on Florida. To his credit, he is dropping out of the race before Super Tuesday to avoid further confusion of his party's nomination process.

  • Huckabee and McCain Overtake Giuliani Nationally

    Jan 10, 2008

    by: Rick Scarborough

    While Huckabee was the run away winner in Iowa, McCain was the run away winner in New Hampshire. The race could come down to these two men unless Giuliani wins big in Florida or can win big on Super Tuesday. The latest national polling has McCain and Huckabee ahead of Giuliani--where both men had been trailing the former New York mayor for months by double digits. Their refusal to attack each other also leaves some wondering if the two men wouldn’t make a great ticket together for their party. Romney's candidacy suffered the most damage in the first two primaries and some pundits feel he must win Michigan or he will appear to be spending his funds in vain. Thompson left with his campaign alive in Iowa and now his campaign hinges on South Carolina. Although Mike Huckabee has a huge lead in the polls it would not be wise to write off any of the top five in this race just yet.
