Rubio and the Mormon Vote

Mia Love 1 Recently Utah Congresswoman Mia Love came out in support for Marco Rubio. For those of you who do not know Mrs. Love, she is the child of Jamaican immigrants and was the first Utah’s first Black Congresswoman to be elected to office. There is something else you need to know about her, like most people in Utah she is a Mormon.

Of course, she wasn’t the first Black Mormon woman to join Marco team. I IMG_20120122_132341was LOL. I wasn’t raised in the Mormon faith but have been a devout participant of it for the past 12 years. But this does raise some interesting questions. Will the endorsement of Marco by Mia help him increase his standing among the more strongly religious and Blacks or because of her Mormon faith, will it cause incidental harm?

Also, there has been a recent backlash against the Latter Day Saint church because of its newest policy on the ordination of children of same-sex married couples. But does that mean Rubio should shy away from trying to get more votes from Mormons? I think doing so would actually do more considerable harm if he did. Mormons are a strong voting block. We see the Constitution as a divinely inspired document and take our civic responsibilities quite seriously.

Most Mormon members of Congress (15 out of 16) hail from the West. Not surprisingly, Mormons make up a much higher percentage of the West’s population (6%) than they do of any other region. (About seven-in-ten U.S. Mormons live in the West.)

Which makes sense because Utah is located in the West, so it makes sense we would have more Mormons in the West than anprop81y other region. But it also shows how strongly we regard our responsibility to serve the public. The religious community was very strong when Prop 8 was put forth in California, but one of the strongest proponents of it was the Church of Latter Day Saints, so much so that they threatened our Prophet and President of the church, Thomas S. Monson, along with threatening to burn down our temples. Regardless, we still stood by our principles.

A lot of people think the Mormon factor hurt Mitt Romney in his bid for Presidency. However, I think it was probably the one positive thing he had going for him. It was his record on conservative issues that hurt him more than his Mormon faith. In fact, it would be quite detrimental not to court the Mormon vote given the fact that we are the most conservative of the major religions:

Members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, or Mormons, are the most conservative major religious group in the country, with 59% identifying as conservative, 31% as moderate, and 8% as liberal.

“The 49% of Mormons who self-identify as both conservative and Republican is the highest of any major religious group, significantly larger than the 31% of Protestants/other non-Catholic Christians who can be so categorized.”

While this is an old poll, I would not imagine the numbers have changed all that much.  So as the Rubio reaches out to the religious and conservative community, will those in those in the Mormon faith endorse his candidacy? He already has two really devout Mormon women backing him, I am sure he can get more.

Women Betrayed Rally in Downtown L.A

I am the Pro Life GenerationUnfortunately, my camera broke down so I was unable to take pictures of this great event. However, I did end up on tv, so you will be able to see me on some channel somewhere. In any case, it was a fantastic rally. We had a paltry showing from the other side come and lie about how Planned Parenthood and abortion saves lives. Really then tell that to Tamiah Russell, Angela Sanchez, Holly Patterson, Belinda Byrd, Deanna Bell and Eurice Agbagaa. Out of the six women that I named four were Black! Black women are more likely to die from abortion than their counterparts. This is for two reasons 1) Black women have more abortions than their counterparts 2) They are apt to get subpar care from the abortion provider from the get go.

More about that later, let’s get back to the rally. They had a slew of great speakers. One of them held my former position as Regional Coordinator for the Los Angeles area for Silent No More Awareness campaign. Her name was Annette and she had a story that brought me to tears. She had all her children with her and they were all were looking heartbroken carrying signs that said I Mourn My Aborted Sibling. I thought I was going to just break down right there. She tried to save her child after the abortion had started but was unable to, it died. She said all she could think was “Oh my goodness, what have I done.”  If you want to learn more about Silent No More Awareness  then go to this website:

You can hear stories from post-abortive women who have since become pro-life and I guarantee you that it will touch your heart. The whole thing was emceed by Sylvia Aimerito of AudioGirl Ministries You can check her out at:  She is a DJ out here and is part of my pro-life group on Facebook ProLife Divas/Warriors. Here is the address if you wish to join:  I also have another pro-life that addresses the abortion rate in the Black community and it is called BLACK (Black League Against Child Killing). You can find it at

Enough of the plugs. The rally was energized and people were on fire to see Planned Parenthood defunded. The funny part was the counter protest. They were truly pathetic. First of all they have 3 guys coming in with a sign that says, “Abortion on demand and without apology. Stop the Patriarchy.” You are kidding me, right? You don’t have men carrying a sign that says “Stop the Patriarchy” it looks like a joke. You don’t have any credibility. So their attempt to pose any sort of legitimate voice on the subject was already killed when these hateful men joined the march. The women, initially,  were just doing their thing and letting us do ours. It is when the men showed up that it turned ugly. There was no physical violence from either side. The police did protect the pro-lifers from the angry rabble of the pro-choice side.

The pro-choice side had a sign that read: Women are not: Bitches, hos, whores, incubators, etc. They are full human beings. Which our side agrees with. But you need to be taking that message down to a rap label, not a pro life rally. You want to step up to Jay Z and tell him that? You want to picket a 50 Cent concert? Yeah I didn’t think so. It is not our side that disrespects women. It is yours! Call any conservative man’s wife a bitch and you will be lucky if you get back up. Call any liberal man’s wife a bitch and he will just laugh like Tim MacGraw did when Nelly called Faith Hill a bitch. T  point is the pro-life sees women as beautiful, strong, courageous, nurturing and loving. It wouldn’t occur to us to make a sign like that because that is not how we see women. That is how you proc-choicers see women! So until you start picketing rap concerts I don’t want to hear women are not bitches, hos, whores, etc. because that is what you do to women in you world. Women deserve better.

We are on the right side of history and one day abortion will become illegal in this country once again.

3 Reasons Why the Left Hate the Unborn

Brian Fisher has a website called Online for Life and on his site, he discusses why we tolerate abortion in America and part of that reason stems from our devaluing unborn children. So as I was reading his reasons I came up with a few of my own and decided to write my own article detailing why we have such an intense hatred for the unborn.

1. Pediaphobia-hatred or fear of children

Joycelyn_Elders_official_photo_portraitWe really need to get over this love affair with the fetus and start worrying about children.~Jocelyn Elder.

This is a very scary quote considering Jocelyn Elder was at one time the Surgeon General of the United States and if you are a doctor and  don’t understand “fetuses” are children then there is something seriously wrong with you. You might want to get your money back from that Caribbean medical school, Jocelyn. Jocelyn represents a very real segment of society who has an intense dislike of children. They don’t even pretend to downplay it. This phenomenon is nothing new. If you look at the movies during the late sixties and early seventies you will see a theme of pediaphobia running through them. In movies like Rosemary’s Baby and the Omen, the unborn children were the spawn of Satan. In the Shining, two girls drove their father to kill them and the rest of his family, along with a boy with telepathic powers which would be the downfall of his father. We could go on forever, but the gist of it is, the media was setting up the very premise that children were a threat and that would encapsulate the whole pro-choice movement from there on in. This fear of children is not some right wing delusion attributed to the Left. In fact the Queen of the Left, Letty Cottin-Pogrebin, one of the founding editors of Ms. Magazine had this to say about pediaphobia back in 1983:

America is a nation fundamentally ambivalent about its children,” Pogrebin writes, “often afraid of its children, Letty Cottin-Pogrebinand frequently punitive toward its children . . . I see a veritable epidemic of pedophobia in America today.”

That quote is 32 years old but is still very much relevant to what we are seeing today. The interesting thing is I went to her website to see if she was still speaking about pediaphobia in our society and from what I can see she isn’t. Most of her engagements deal with her current book, “Single Jewish Male Seeking Soulmate.” Which is fine, but this is what the Left does. They create the problem and then when it gets to the breaking point they abandon it and say we on the Right are crazy because such a thing doesn’t even exist.That is okay, though, because another leftist organization has picked up where Cottin-Pogrebin has left off. It is called the Freechild Project and on their site they list several “isms” that deal with the discrimination of children, including pediaphobia. This is why you hear the left say that the babies are not babies but “fetuses,” “blobs of tissue,” “products of conception,” anything that will dehumanize the child and make it less than what it truly is.  The Freechild Project has a word for that:

Demonization is a process for making young people evil in order to justify attacking them in the forms of character assassination, legal action and to get rid of their civil liberties.

This is what we have been doing to the unborn since 1973. They also have another word which I think describes the feelings of those on the Left:

Adultization is the elimination of childhood and adolescence by schools, marketers and parents in order to promote order and eliminate the “inconvenience” of youth.

We all know how the Left is always talking about pregnancy being an inconvenience. It is truly reprehensible. Now I could go on forever talking about this, but I promised you two more reasons and this is turning into an article in and of itself.

2.  Consent

Consent is very big in the Leftist world, I could hit you with a baseball bat all day long as long as you consented to it. There is not much that is not tolerated in their world, even if consent is given. However, life does not care about your consent. It comes when it wants to and it doesn’t ask your permission. Babies often come at very inopportune times. I have yet to meet anyone who had a baby minus IVF who had it at the perfect time. That is not the way life works. Now granted when you consent to lie with a man, you are consenting to all the consequences that follow. You are consenting to STDs, pregnancy and by giving him your body you are consenting to his treatment of you. If you don’t consent to these things, you should not be sleeping with him. Of course, the Left wants to make it out that women are idiots and they do not know or recognize such basic truths. “She didn’t know that he was an abusive monster.”  “She didn’t know she could get pregnant from sex.” I mean the things they put out there are utterly ridiculous. Here is a favorite quote of mine.

Maya Angelou“When people show you who they are, believe them the first time.
~Maya Angelou

It is because we don’t believe them the first time that we get in trouble, so we continue to consent. Far too often, we hear from the Left that she consented to sex, not to the pregnancy, but the two are intertwined you cannot separate them.It is like saying, she consents to be a woman but not to the monthly menstruation. Well too bad, that is part of being a female. Once again, nature has its own agenda and it doesn’t care about yours. It doesn’t care if this period or this pregnancy is inconvenient for you. Life will never ask for your permission to live and it will not ask when it is time for you to die. Life does not seek to make things easy for you. Life is forceful, messy and at times unmanageable. It is strong, defiant and will knock out any obstacles put in its way. Life does not  play fair or does it play well with others. This simple truth is why the Left opposes life at every turn because it cannot control it. But even with all its mess, strength and defiance it is still most beautiful thing ever. The Left cannot see that beauty, it cannot understand it. So it must destroy it.

3. Pride

18 Pride goeth before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall. Proverbs 16:18

More than anything the Left is based on pride. You have Black Pride, Latino Pride, Gay Pride and the list continues. WhileBlack Pride there is nothing wrong with acknowledging the history of your people and using them as inspiration to carry on your own accomplishments there is something wrong with thinking you and/or your people are better than others and as such deserve special recognition above others. This is what the Left does, they place the mother above the child. Are they equal?Of course not, the mother has authority over the child but authority is not superiority. Authority is actually a duty to do right by your underlings. If I am a principal I have authority over my teachers, but I am not superior to them. But I have a responsibility to both the teachers and the students. This concept of authority has gotten confused in the Leftist world with pride and superiority. The Left has neglected its authority to do right by its children and instead gives a bunch of reasons for killing the unborn that have to do with pride. According to Alan Guttmacher Institute, the following  are the reasons women abort:

three-fourths say they cannot afford a child; three-fourths say that having a baby would interfere with work, school or the ability to care for dependents; and half say they do not want to be a single parent or are having problems with their husband or partner.[6

Defiant womenAll selfish! Not one of these women thought of adoption. Oh no, I couldn’t give my baby away to a loving family, I much rather kill it. It would be too hard ON ME to give it away and a chance at a real life. Don’t want to be a single parent? Put it up for adoption. Think it will interfere with school or the ability to care for other dependents? Put it up for adoption. Having problems with your husband? Get the heck out and put the baby up for adoption. The woman here all had the authority to make sure their child had the best possible family even if it wasn’t with them, but they decided their pride was more important. They decided that whatever made their life easier was paramount. No consideration to the unborn child in them. No consideration to the life that fought its way into existence. It is all about me, me, me. No one ever stops to think that this child could change their life is a wonderful, fundamental way.

In conclusion, there are many reasons that the Left hate the unborn but these three make the top of the list. And it is about time we stand for the unborn and tell them the unborn won’t treated like yesterday’s trash. It is time to protect from those who wish to destroy them. It is time to give them a voice.

Good Night Sweetheart

my-porch-swing-is-a-little-wornThey sat on the porch swing looking up at the midnight sky. The stars shining brightly as if they were doing so just for them. The crickets were the only music. Each one was at peace with the other by their side. She was 82 years old and the time shown upon her face. Her hands were all wrinkled and frail, her hair was now all silver. She rested her head upon his shoulder. He was 77 and time had been kinder to him, He has fewer wrinkles, more strength and as he clutched her hand, he did so mindful of the strength, so gentle and loving was his embrace. She was the first one to speak.
“Can you believe it has been forty years?” she asked.
“No, I can’t. It seems like forty minutes. he answered.
“When I walked in your office that first day, did you think we would be here forty years later?”
“Sweetie, I didn’t think you would be here six months later, let alone forty years,” he jested. They both laughed.
“Your love saved me.” she said with a sweet smile.
With that he rose from the swing and took her hand. He gently pulled her up and into his arms. They started to sway to theBlack and White couple music of the crickets. “If anyone’s love saved the other, it was yours that saved mine. No one has ever loved me so unconditionally before. You once told me I taught you what real human love looked like, you were wrong, you taught me.” They gently kissed one another’s lips. She was feeling woozy, so they sat back down. She laid her head back on her shoulder and he laid his head on hers and without much fanfare, they left this Earth together, holding hands. And the darkness of the night was replaced by the light of God.

Gay Marriage: Gotcha!

I have been thinking if weddings1the straight community really wanted to have full control over the gay community what better way to do it then to make them believe the lie of gay marriage. We sold it, you bought it, you are ours now! Welcome to the heterosexual world-your gayness is immaterial from this point forward! The gay community was built on one premise-sexual freedom. You just squashed that. Monogamy is what reigns supreme in the straight world. You are no longer allowed to go bed hopping. You are no longer allowed to dump someone when someone else hotter comes along, And since we don’t have polygamy, you cannot bring someone else into your relationship, you are stuck! You get bored, you have to divorce them like the rest of us.

Also, since marriage involves children, you are now saddled with dfd-family-pic1raising children for the first 18 years of your married life. You have to deal with 2 am feedings, temper tantrums and the never ending rant of “You are not my real father, I don’t have to listen to you! You are ruining my life! I hope you die!” Oh and now that you are married, you have to deal with everyone asking you, “So when are you having children!” They are no longer an option for you, so you better pony up that cash because you will have to adopt or be considered a social pariah! What kind of gay married couple doesn’t want children-you are so selfish!

Oh, but I want all that-yeah right. You want it now because you are not in it. Tell me how wonderful it is when you get a call from the school to come pick up your son because the teacher that consistently harasses him on a daily basis finally got cussed out by him and you don’t know whether to high five him or wring his neck! Remember all those wonderful weekend getaways you used to take? No more! All that disposable income? Well, it truly is disposable now as you now have to dispose of it on glasses, braces, college funds and medical bills because let’s face it, kids are forever sick!

Remember those awful breeders you accused us of being? Well, it is you now. You wanted all the perks of marriage but none of the responsibilities but guess what? You get them both! Oh and the beauty of this is domestic violence laws now apply to you. You so much as look at your partner wrong and you will be doing some serious prison time. Before you could beat your partner within an inch of their life and the ggay-protestay community would cover for you. Bleeding gay man beat by his boyfriend, nothing to see here people! Now you won’t be able to hide it anymore! You are one of us! So remember all those laws that applied to straight couples you wanted so much?  That’s one of them.

And in-laws! That is right you get in laws now! Those people who made your life miserable when you two were single are now yours for a lifetime! And your precious hospitalization rights you fought for  so diligently won’t amount to a hill of beans once Mom gets involved because she is going to fight every medical decision you make for her son. After all, it happens in the straight community. And now that your “husband” is sick, you get to pay all his medical bills! Needs a bypass? That’s $625,000. Needs brain surgery? That is over a million dollars! But I am sure the Obamacare exchange will pay for it! LOL So you have your “husband” in the hospital, a kid that hates you, in-laws fighting you tooth and nail, overwhelming debt, and a developing ulcer but hey isn’t marriage great?

So whatever made the gay society unique, it is gone. You now belong to the straight world. We gave you marriage but under our terms, not yours. You will play the marriage game they way we say, not you. Marriage is our world and you should feel honored we included you in it. Now your existence will be sexless, bland and ordinary, but this is what you wanted. You have effectively destroyed the gay community. So adieu to your world and welcome to ours.
