Juneteenth 2019 – Human rights remembrance

On June 19th, 2019, some will celebrate Juneteenth. We remember that on June 19th, 1865 the last African American slaves in the USA were freed. Though slavery (human trafficking) is not legal in the USA, it is legal in some other countries. We should celebrate victories, then continue the fight for human rights. After slavery was ended, there remained inequality in other civil rights. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. fought for equal civil rights.

In 1973, the U.S. Supreme Court went against the Declaration of Independence, the U.S. Constitution, and judicial precedent and decided to revoke the right to life for the unborn and make up a “right” to assassination in privacy. Dr. Alveda King, continues the fight for civil rights by working to restore the right to life.

A child may be unplanned by their parents, but nobody is unplanned by their creator. As the Lord spoke to the prophet Jeremiah:
Before I formed you in the womb I knew you,
before you were born I set you apart;
” Jeremiah 1:5a (NIV)

Gun Control and the 2nd Amendment

Democratic Party leaders promote expanding gun control restrictions on gun ownership and related sales.  While they say it should improve public safety, research shows it normally makes places less safe.  Democrats have run cities like Chicago and Baltimore for years and have very restrictive gun laws, but remain high crime areas.  One reason is because law abiding citizens cannot defend themselves or others against criminals with guns. 

Gun Control in line with the Second Amendment

The United States Constitution had a series of amendments, the first ten they collected in the Bill of Rights. It states in the second amendment:
A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.

Guns in the hands of the righteous and good citizens is a deterrent to violence from the wicked. Also it is useful in the prevention of tyranny. In the event of someone taking evil actions with guns, the righteous can stop their violence better with weapons.

Crime rates go down when responsible gun ownership and concealed carry permits go up.  Spending government money to confiscate or buy guns from law abiding citizens is a waste of money and resources.  They would be better off with qualifying and paying part time deputies to patrol high-crime areas in those cities.  Also, please promote the enforcement of existing laws to ensure background checks prevent criminals from easily purchasing guns.

We cannot prevent gun violence by limiting the responsible ownership of guns. A righteous person with a gun is most likely to stop someone with evil on their mind with a gun.

We can reduce violence by encouraging moral character that honors God. Also we should teach healthy ways to manage stress and conflict in our schools.

Pursuit of happiness

The authors of the U.S. Declaration of Independence wrote: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of happiness.

The “Pursuit of happiness” was about seeking to live a righteous life that sought the welfare of others including community and nation as written in Leviticus 19:18 and expounded on by Jesus in Matthew 22:36-40 and Mark 12:28-34, “Love your neighbor as yourself.” As the love of Jesus increases, violence and wickedness decrease.

Let us encourage more civil discourse on politics and/or religion like Dan Crenshaw. Politicians and pundits across the political spectrum sometimes resort to name calling. Also they attack the character of those who disagree with their perspective. Some rudely interrupt others. I took a course on rhetoric in college. It emphasized the importance in presentation skills when presenting a topic, but it avoided debating. What our middle schools and high schools need are some lessons in healthy debate. Also they could use lessons in respectful dialogue on politics and religion.

Lots more people have died in Chicago from gun violence, where they have stricter gun control laws than Virginia Beach. Next you can check out the Virginia Beach Virginia Senate candidates comments on gun control in light of the recent shooting violence in Virginia Beach.

2019 Virginia Beach Conservative Candidates

Last updated on June 12th, 2019

I was not able to find another easy listing of 2019 Virginia Beach conservative candidates running for office. Therefore, I decided to collect a list on this page.  According to their bylaws, the Republican Party of Virginia Beach cannot fund advertising for candidates for non-partisan races.  In contrast, I am happy to devote some of my resources to do so.

By conservative I mean those who wish to conserve what is good and limit the size of government to the essentials. Also those who consider themselves Republican or Libertarian.  Furthermore, this would exclude those who consider themselves liberal or progressive. For a deeper understanding of the differences, check out “The Great Divide: Why liberals and conservatives will never, ever agree” by William D. Gairdener.

“19 Don’t turn away God’s Spirit 20 or ignore prophecies. 21 Put everything to the test. Accept what is good 22 and don’t have anything to do with evil.” – 1 Thessalonians 5:19-22 (CEV)

Primary voting was on June 11th, 2019.

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. 2019 Weekend – Promoting rights

Mourning the loss of life

At the start of the weekend, millions of Americans mourned the loss of more than 60 million babies through abortion in America. Tens of thousands participated in the March for Life. I am grateful for the progress made under President Trump in reducing government funding of abortion. Also I pray more progress will be made in restoring the right to life in my lifetime.

Protesting the protection of life

Today, thousands gathered in Washington D.C. to protest against President Trump and promote immoral sexual choices including using abortion to kill children in the womb. Also Planned Parenthood and associated organizations want to prevent children from receiving their God-given right to life outside the womb.

Remembering a life of service

On Monday, we remember Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. He was an ordained Christian minister. It is sad the Washington memorial to him left out the importance of his faith in Jesus Christ as the inspiration and source of his work. He promoted peaceful protests to achieve equal rights before the law for non-white people. Also his desire was that we would judge people not on the color of their skin, but on the content of their character. I am sure he would condemn the murder of children through abortion and sexual immorality promoted by liberal politicians and activists. His niece, Alveda King, continues the fight for civil rights by working to restore the right to life.

Protecting the right to life

“Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves” Proverbs 31:8

This month the Democratic lead House of Representatives passed a bill that would require the federal government to fund abortion overseas. Also the Republican lead Senate failed to pass a bill that would prohibit the federal government from funding abortion. This would make the Hyde Amendment permanent. Both bills had narrow margins. Please contact your representatives to let them know you do not want your taxes to pay for the killing of children in the womb through abortion.
