Conservative on Target! 3/1/12

INCREDIBLE! Goodbye, First Amendment: ‘Trespass Bill’ will make protest illegal: Just when you thought the government couldn’t ruin the First Amendment any further: The House of Representatives approved a bill on Monday that outlaws protests in instances where some government officials are nearby, whether or not you even know it… Under the act, the government is also given the power to bring charges against Americans engaged in political protest anywhere in the country. [The vote was 388-3. Have our politicians, all of them, lost their minds? Do we have a conservative left in the House? – JS]

"An important art of politcians is to find new names for institutions which
under old names have become odious to the public." – Talleyrand

Reproductive Rights vs. Religious Liberty:
   For some time I have been warning you that the Obama administration has elevated so-called “gay rights” at the expense of religious liberty.
   Again, the question is why? I think Catholic scholar George Weigel has put his finger on it: “What began as a movement to liberate sexuality from the constraints of moral reason, custom, and law,” Weigel says, “has become a movement determined to use the instruments of law to impose its deconstruction of human sexuality and its moral relativism on all of society.” I urge you to read Weigel’s piece.
   Friends, this is a clash of worldviews. Whether it’s “gay rights” or “reproductive rights,” the forces of secular liberalism are choosing sexual license over our religious liberty regarding human sexuality.
   As Christians, we simply cannot go along.

Really bad firearm laws the FL Legislature is trying to pass!
   Well  . . .  in my last post I warned everyone about House Bill 463.   But . . .  here are some other real problems:
   HB 127 & SB 194 --These bills would make it a felony if you touched or assaulted a utility worker trespassing on your property who was trying to enter against your instructions or refused to leave. 
   HB 1269 -- allows local governments to pass ordinances making it a crime to carry a firearm or weapon with a CWP into any event on government property or sponsored by government -- such as art and music festivals. 
   HB 1147 & HB 1221  -- exempts Broward County from parts of the preemption law. 
   HB 4015  & SB 248 -- these bills would repeal a law passed last session that stopped anti-gun doctors from asking questions about if you owned guns. 
   More to come!   Sorry -- but some of your legislators suck -- and a lot more aren't reading these bills!  They need your input!  (but use nicer words than me!)
