Three Times "For Shame"
Call me, Pyle…Gomer Pyle for those of you who remember a country boy gone Marine! Do you remember the phrase,”For shame, for shame, for shame?” I do, and I feel like saying it again to the local Democratic Party.
Today, I received an e-mail from the Davidson County Democratic Party Executive Committee calling for a NO vote on Amendment 1. I am enclosing what I received right here for you to read.
WHEREAS, On November 7, 2006, Tennessee voters will go to the polls to vote on whether or not to amend the Tennessee State Constitution to prohibit same gender marriage by the adoption of Amendment 1 (the text of which is set out in full as an attachment to this resolution.); and
WHEREAS, the Tennessee Constitution was adopted in 1870 without any language discriminating against any group of Tennesseans and has never, heretofore, been amended to include language that expressly denies equal treatment to any group of Tennesseans; and
WHEREAS, the position of the Democratic Party in opposition to the adoption of Federal and State constitutional amendments prohibiting same gender marriage is on record through the Chairman of the Democratic National Committee as follows:
"…Because Democrats value all families, we are committed to the fundamental principle that every American has the right to live in dignity, with equal rights, responsibilities and protections under the law. …Republicans in Washington are …scapegoating LGBT families for partisan gain."
"This is morally wrong, and it hurts LGBT Americans. Democrats are committed to fighting this hateful, divisive amendment and to fighting similarly discriminatory ballot initiatives in states across the country. We strongly oppose any attempt to write discrimination into law - whether it be at the local or state levels or in the United States Constitution." (Chairman Howard Dean, Proclamation 6/1/06); and
WHEREAS, the Executive Committee of the Davidson County Democratic Party wishes to join the National Democratic Party in its opposition to writing discrimination into the Tennessee Constitution by opposing the adoption of Amendment 1;
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, that all Tennessee voters are hereby urged to oppose the attempt to write discrimination into the Tennessee Constitution through proposed Amendment 1 by voting "NO" against the adoption of Amendment 1 during early voting or on election day, November 7, 2006; and
BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that this resolution be adopted and recorded in the minutes of the Executive Committee of the Davidson County Democratic Party; and
BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that the Officers and committee members and each of them are hereby authorized to publicize this resolution as appropriate, including, without limitation, its publication on the website of the Davidson County Democratic Party and the websites of other organizations opposing the adoption of Amendment 1.
ADOPTED, this 26th day of September, 2006
I am well aware of diversity training and politically correct designs by those intended to dumb us down and stifle legitimate debate, but this goes to the ludicrous. To use phrasing like this is MORALLY wrong! Who do they think they are? The Bible, the book on which this nation was built, says it is wrong and sinful and condemned. Our founding fathers never considered constitutional rights to include socially destructive and morally deviant behavior. Rest assured, homosexuality was considered a perversion by our founding fathers and by most generations of Americans until recent media pollution clouded the issue.
One person recently told me that a person cannot legislate morality. I totally disagree! Our founding fathers expected not only to create a Democratic society, but a society with morals based in the Christian religion. Recently, I heard Rosie O’Donnel confront Bill O'Reilly with the will of the founding fathers. This is the same liberal who compared fundamental Christians with radical Islamists. I wonder why Amercians do not rise up and tell Rosie that her life is out of the will of the founding fathers. The disregard for their faith is an abomination.
On October 11, 1798, President John Adams stated in his address to the military:
“We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion. Avarice, ambition, revenge and gallantry would break the strongest cords of our Constitution as a whale goes through a net. Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.”
When I read statements like that by the founding fathers, I know that those on the Deomcratic Executive Committee who do not want a godly definition of Americans are not only at odds with God, they are the people undermining the desires of the founding fathers and the continued establishment of a constitutionally based government.
The resolution made me sick, and it is offensive to Christians. I have written this blog to make sure people know we need to vote for morality and religion, and to vote the pro-abortionists and anti-family crowd out!
