(Above is a poster my 9-year-old Elijah held, "photo-bombing" an otherwise tender moment for some homosexuals in front of the Rowan County Courthouse during Kim Davis' trial.)

There's a problem with the Kentucky governor's accommodation for religious conservatives like County Clerk of Courts Kim Davis. He's the first Republican governor in Kentucky for fifty years, and he claims his victory is in large part due to his support for Kim Davis, who was jailed for five days for refusing to issue marriage licenses to same sex couples. He comes out this week claiming that he is going to remove the name of the clerk of court from off all marriage licenses, so that religious opponents to same sex marriage like Kim Davis can abide by their conscience and not sign marriage forms to those unqualified.

Sounds like a victory for religious conservatives, eh? Don’t cheer too soon.

The problem with this is that supporting Kim Davis is the most pathetic of all options for the Kentucky Governor! Why isn't he issuing an order EVERY Kentucky clerks to refuse to issue marriage licenses to unqualified applicants? Why isn't he issuing an order for EVERY clerk to uphold the Kentucky Constitution, which says marriage shall ONLY be between a man and a woman? Why isn't he protecting Kentucky, and Kentucky law? Why isn't he protecting marriage?

Now, he creates a manner whereby wickedness can be facilitated and the law violated by another means.

When an atomic bomb is about to go off in the city and you have the know-how to disarm it, now's not the time to give water to a thirsty child.

Be on guard, my fellow religious conservatives, when leaders talk about protecting "religious liberty". When the nation's going to hell in a handbasket through taxpayer-subsidized sodomy and child sacrifice, our efforts to create means whereby the wicked can offend God without offending our fragile consciences - that's a recipe that hastens judgment, instead of abating it.

This is a letter I sent to 24 pro-life groups and leaders tonight. Help us spread the word that ectopically-implanted babies do not have to die to save the mother's life. The mother's life and the baby's life can both be saved by well-documented medical procedures.

My wife is pregnant with my tenth child, and I’ve been reminiscing how blessed we are. It’s not often parents go into double digits.

When my wife and I married, we decided we wanted as many children as the Lord would give us (reserving the right to change our mind, of course.) However, in the 17 years we have been married, it has never occurred to me even for a moment that we should stop having kids. They are our greatest blessings in life, and our greatest enjoyments.

These are my Ten Commandments for Training Children.


1. Be Proactive

“Train up a child in the way he should go,” Proverbs 22 teaches. Good training isn’t primarily reactive, it’s proactive. What kind of horse-trainer would wait for a horse to disobey and then respond accordingly? The horse-trainer, through positive and negative reinforcement, trains away the little episodes of disobedience, making it unlikely to buck or kick the rider later. We should be proactive to teach obedience to our children in the small things, and not wait for disobedience to train.

Did God just set Adam and Eve in the Garden and leave them to themselves? No – He issued a just commandment, “Don’t eat of this tree,” and prescribed an appropriate penalty, “in the day that you eat thereof you will surely die.” He wasn’t reactive, he was proactive. He daily fellowshipped with them, perhaps reminding them and encouraging them, giving them reasons to obey. When they sinned, He was kept His word.

You don’t have to wait until your child grows up to train. The “terrible two’s” are a product of waiting too long to train. You can teach them the meaning of “Yes” and “No” and train them to submit to your authority long before they can intellectually grasp the concepts, long before their consciences are even functioning.

Be proactive. Don’t child-proof your home. Home-proof your children. Don’t wait for a temper-tantrum. Set one up, and train them to obey cheerfully and quickly. You’re stronger than them. You’re smarter than them. Act like it.

“Judicial supremacy” is what Mike Huckabee called “the greatest heresy of our day.” It is the belief that Congress, the president, and the states have a duty to obey whatever nutty, lawless decision the Supreme Court hands down. As of September 24, 2015, Mike Huckabee is the only presidential candidate who insists he will not comply with the Supreme Court’s unlawful, unconstitutional rulings, but will be duty-bound to defy them. Cruz, Carson, Carly, Christie, and all of the other Republican presidential candidates harbor the belief that the judiciary is supreme and its every decision binding.

Watch Huckabee defend the president’s duty to disregard lawless Supreme Court opinion here.

Kentucky Clerk of Courts Kim Davis was locked away in jail without bail by U.S. District Court Judge David Bunning. She was only released after hundreds of Christians rallied at the jail for her release, and dozens descended upon the judge’s neighborhood distributing leaflets and holding signs and banners, calling upon the sheriff to arrest the judge and liberate this law-abiding Christian woman. Her crime, according to Judge Bunning? Enforcing heretofore unamended Kentucky law and the Kentucky Constitution and disregarding the Supreme Court’s lawless attempt to overthrow it.

There are sinister forces behind Judge Bunning’s persecution of Kim Davis, but to exposed these forces and prove to you that they are at the heart of this increasingly public contention, let me first demonstrate what the issue is not about. 

It is not about the people of Kentucky. 

As his justification for incarcerating Kim Davis, Judge Bunning cites the Supreme Court’s Obergefell decision, wherein the Supreme Court declared same-sex marriage a constitutional right. This decision grievously overrules the will of the people of Kentucky. Indeed...

This is an Email I sent to pro-family leaders and my state reps tonight about this attack on our church. Please, help spread the word! And pray for us. Pray that we can ignite the public outrage and provoke God's people to act in defense of God's people and righteousness.

Dear sir/ma'am:

I attend New Beginnings Ministries in Warsaw, Ohio, which finds itself once again under attack. You may recall in the fall of 2014, our church was a nationwide news story when we were targeted by nude strippers on Sunday morning. (Below you will find a link to a family-friendly video we created to provoke public outrage over this attack on our church). The public nudity in front of our church was orchestrated in retaliation by the strip club owner because of our successful outreach in front of the Foxhole strip club in the area. Our Gospel presentation and presence on the public sidewalk in front of the strip club whithered down their crowd tremendously. The strip club owner wanted to intimidate us into withdrawing our outreach, and it was a difficult trial for our congregation as some left as a result of the provocative nudity on the sidewalk around the church in view of their children. It was a very painful five weeks in the fall of 2014, and there was enough public outrage to encourage our state reps (Ron Hood and Brian Hill) and Citizens for Community Values leaders to come to our aid and work with us on legislation to end this public vileness in view of children.

Well, when winter came and the strippers went back inside, the outrage dwindled. With the weather warm, the strippers are at it again, getting more and more lewd and provocative in their nudity and dancing on the sidewalk around the church. We are located in a neighborhood, and non-church-going children ride their bikes to see the nude women. The strippers walk around the block, and men come out of their homes to pose with the women for pics as children look on. It is an atrocity unequaled even in the perverted streets of Las Vegas and New Orleans, and the women do this in the presence of law enforcement officers who do nothing.

Ohio law is not the problem. The Ohio public indecency law says that no one may expose their "private part" where it is an "affront" to another. Unfortunately, years ago a godless judge ruled that a "private part" does not include exposed female breasts, and the police department who arrested three topless lesbians was ordered to pay each lesbian $5,000. However, Ohio law remains unchanged, this godless judicial activism notwithstanding. Of course the female breast is a "private part" - even Hollywood knows that, as it is the difference between and PG and R rating. And of course exposing this private part publicly and intentionally to children and unsuspecting men in order to "affront" them violates this law.

If I were to show a child pictures or video footage of what these women do in front of my church, it would be criminal "pandering obscenity to a minor." Yet these women can do this and it's okay? How absurd!

I call upon each of you to immediately help us reignite the rage against this public vileness against God's people. Many of you have talk shows and television shows, and extensive mailing lists. Please, help us publicize this and provoke God's people to act!

Two things must immediately be done. The Coshocton Sheriff must be made aware that he has a duty to enforce Ohio law, which clearly forbids this. Law enforcement does not have to subjugate the law to godless and often contradictory judicial activists who defy the law created by democratically elected leaders. His name and contact info is: Timothy Rogers, 328 Chestnut St, Coshocton, OH 43812, (740) 622-2411. The Sheriff defers the question of law to his law director, who insists public exposure of the breasts on public sidewalks is legal, but can cite no law to support this. They should be ashamed for their lack of common sense and common decency.  

Secondly, we must immediately define "private part" in Ohio law clearly, and not leave it to public-nudity-affirming judges. Rep. Ron Hood agreed to do this in the fall, but when the public outrage dwindled, it never materialized. We must immediately insist our legislators define "private part" for the purposes of the Ohio public indecency act to include the "female breast."

The force behind this public nudity is the gay agenda. Columbus, Ohio's gay pride parade is 500,000 strong, and most of the women go completely topless right down the street past the statehouse! It is the vilest public filth I have ever seen! I have preached at gay pride parades over the years, and the one in Columbus is larger and more vile than Chicago's and even San Francisco's. Some of the men in Columbus' parade go bottomless, covering their genitals with a poster. All of this nudity is done in public in view of officers, who think they are following the law in allowing this. Make no mistake, the gay activists are a formidable force that intend to keep public nudity legal in Ohio. However, if God be for us, who can stand against us? Let us drive this evil out of our streets in Jesus' name! Please, help us!

You may contact me or my wife, Elizabeth, for interviews through our website, Contact my Pastor Bill Dunfee through New Beginnings Ministry in Warsaw. Thank you.

I'm sorry to hear about the persecution you all are suffering. We'll be praying for you. And so you know, my wife and I have been blessed by and appreciate your family's ministry. My primary reason for writing this, though, is to prompt you to be consistent in your efforts against public nudity. You called women exposing their breasts lewd, vile, obscene, atrocious, and provocative. However, the only difference between the male and female chest is fatty tissue and mammary glands! And I don't know anyone who finds fat or milk to be lewd or provocative. What I find to be lewd and provocative is the exposing of nipples, whether it be a man's or woman's, because nipples are sexual, and therefore, "private" parts. So, I agree with your effort to make women cover their private parts, but I implore you to try to make men cover theirs as well, for the sake of morality and consistency.


@Jadan  I disagree. Our culture does not view male and female private parts the same - and neither do you, I suspect. You would probably call the police if females in your neighbor's yard or women next to you on the beach were to remove their shirts and bras - but not if a man went shirtless. You may accuse a woman of sin and commence a "Matthew 18" if she went topless at the beach or at a local pool - but not a man. You would protest the PG rating a movie with topless women, but not topless men. This shows that even you know that there is a vast difference between topless women and topless men. In our culture, the difference is as vast as being a crime or not being a crime, being rated PG or rated R, being blatant sin or more of an issue of conscience - as far as our culture is concerned. That is undeniable, and that is my point. If you want to try to alter the culture to see female and male toplessless as the same, be my guest, but where our culture and most cultures stand right now, there is a vast difference.

Why you should prepare now? How do you prepare? What preparations are most important?

The way in which our nation has defied God foreshadows the way in which He will judge us. Do not naively think that things will always be the way they always have been. We may be nearing a nation-transforming judgment that will bring great suffering upon God's people if they are not prepared.

Don't miss this important timely article, which you may read here - Please share with others.


Picture it: masses of bone-thin, naked bodies piled outside of barb-wire-fenced camps. Testimonies of grisly experiments being performed on Jewish twins. Whole warehouses with tall piles of shoes, empty suitcases, watches, jewelry, and lampshades made from the skin of Jews.

Up sounds forth the cry from America! “Defund them!”


How about "Prosecute them!" or "Try them for crimes against humanity!" or "Hang them from the neck until dead!" All the rage is over selling aborted baby body parts – and there should be rage. However, would the crime had been any less brutal if they’d have given their victim an honorable burial with the tune of taps? Why not harness the public rage and direct it toward an end that would protect the threatened children, like criminal prosecution? Why not prosecute those who dared to fund them in the first place, knowing they were aborting babies? 

Watch this unbelievable footage of a 2 ½ inch-long, ten-week-old freshly removed fetus flexing her trunk and her arms and legs before being disposed of by the abortionist. Would this abortion somehow be worse a crime if they’d have dissected the organs? 

The fifth viral video expose of Planned Parenthood reveals the director and personnel meticulously going through a small bucket of body parts from “a twin” – showing arms, legs, hands, eyes, and lungs – proudly displaying them to the body-parts buyers. That was as ghastly as anything Dr. Josef Mengele ever did. (Begin watching at the 10:00 minute mark of the video to witness this evidence for yourself.)

Remember Josef Mengele? He was the Nazi physician known as “the angel of death.” The few children who survived the Auschwitz concentration camp later recalled how they were visited by a smiling doctor who carried candy and clothes. He transported them to his medical laboratory either in trucks painted with the Red Cross emblem or in his own personal car. He smiled at them. He was nice to them.

At first.

But what did he end up doing to those children? Victims were put into pressure chambers to test the limits of their endurance until their eardrums popped. He experimented on them with drugs, castrated them without anesthesia and slowly froze them to death. Children were given transfusions of blood from one to another. They were put in isolation for extended periods of time to see how much they could endure. He injected lethal pathogens into them, performed sex change operations, and removed organs and limbs. He injected chemicals into the eyes of the children to try to change their eye color. He stitched twins together, and had their limbs and organs removed in macabre surgical procedures. All without using an anesthetic. Then he murdered them and dissected them.

“Defund Mengele!”

Ya think? Why not empty his bank accounts after he’s been hung by the neck until dead! That’s exactly what they did at Nuremberg. They hung Nazi murderers because what they did was worthy of death. God declares that murderers should be executed with two or three witnesses, and that speedily, to quench His wrath on the land for the shedding of innocent blood (Gen. 9; Numb. 35; Deut. 21). I can hear the Nazi excuses before the Nuremberg judge:

“But it was the law of the land…”
“But a panel of judges declared the Jews non-human…”
“But I was ordered to do so by a higher authority…”

Those are the same excuses that American abortionists and Planned Parenthood execs will use one day. They didn't work for the Nazi butchers and Nazi judges who sat in judgment at Nuremberg and they aren't going to work for Planned Parenthood and its baby-killing butchers.

Defunding Planned Parenthood is about our money. Fury over selling their organs after the victims dead – that’s about our sensibilities. Let’s quit making this about us. This is about babies created in the image of God intentionally murdered, provoking God’s wrath. Let’s defund Planned Parenthood after prosecuting them. And if any judge in your state's jurisdiction dares to perpetuate the Abortion Holocaust, prosecute them too.

Pictured here are some of Planned Parenthood child-killing workers and accomplices, taken at the Planned Parenthood abortion clinic on Main St. in Columbus, Ohio, in July 2007. They take the girl’s credit card with a smile. They take her blood pressure gently. They make nice conversation. But they have the blood of innocent babies on their hands.



Once the owner of the A & B Childcare Center in Columbus, Ohio, learned that the building that houses her business was once the now-defunct Capital Care Abortion Clinic, things began to make sense.

"There is a stench coming from the sinks that we cannot make go away, no matter how many times we clean them," she said.

"We hear babies crying," she bemoaned, "even when no one is there."

This ghoulish building is a pit right into the very bowels of hell in the heart of our nation. When our family began to protest the Capital Care Abortion Clinic over a dozen years ago, it was less than a mile from OSU's campus. The facility moved north of town several years before its demise. Since they killed babies frequently Saturdays, it was the target of pro-life protesters and sidewalk counselors more so than the other clinics. We pity the difficult situation the owners of this day care have on their hands. It stands as a gory reminder that as long as four more abortion clinics in Columbus remain open, as long as the innocent blood remains unavenged, and the murderers unpunished, the stench and horror of the Abortion Holocaust pervades all of our homes, whether we smell the death and hear the cries of the innocent or not.

As the day of our nation's judgment draws near, I am both sobered and encouraged by the God's word to Ezekiel on the eve of Israel demolition by the Assyrians.

Ezekiel 9: "Go through the midst of the city, through the midst of Jerusalem, and set a mark upon the foreheads of the men that sigh and that cry for all the abominations that be done in the midst thereof.  And to the others he said in mine hearing, Go ye after him through the city, and smite: let not your eye spare, neither have ye pity: Slay utterly old and young, both maids, and little children, and women: but come not near any man upon whom is the mark; and begin at my sanctuary. Then they began at the ancient men which were before the house."

To what "mark" is does God refer? The mark on those who "sigh" and "cry" over the sins of the land. Do you sigh and cry over the sins of the land? For the sins of your city?

When Assyria came against Israel in Ezekiel's day, they faced unspeakable horrors because of their sins, as the Ezekiel 9 passage describes. What sins, specifically? Ezekiel 9 tells us, in verse 9: "The iniquity of the house of Israel and Judah is exceeding great, and the land is full of blood, and the city full of perverseness..." No city in the nation is bloodier or more perverse than Columbus, Ohio. With four more abortion clinics remaining, strip clubs dotting the city, and about half a million gays in its annual gay pride parade, with dozens of churches lining the parade route offering their support, and with most of the lesbians in the parade topless, there is no city in the nation more bloody or more perverse.

Where, according to the Ezekiel 9 passage, does the judgment start? It starts in the house of God. Peter confirms this: "The time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God..." Peter's context is that suffering is coming to God's people. There is so much ease and naivity in this land. So many of us think that as it has always been in our lives - with full fridges, our bills paid, with ambulances and firetrucks a phone call away, and relatively insulated from violence - that it will always be so. But before God punishes the nation for its sin, he punishes the salt for tolerating it.

Are you prepared for the judgment coming? Keep your eyes on our blog, and we'll be focusing in the coming weeks on some basic preparations for your family and church.
