Berkeley and the United Nations

Berkeley dealing directly with United Nations

A good friend forwarded a very concerning article to me this morning. The city of Berkeley, California, will soon be voting on a measure to begin reporting directly to the United Nations on their compliance with UN human rights treaty. I believe we would all agree that torture, civil rights, and racial discrimination are important issues. However, should a city forge a "treaty" of sorts with the United Nations. I am not a lawyer, but I believe that the people of the United States of America delegated that power to our federal government. Under division of powers in federalism, a city can not do this constitutionally.

The UN Convention on the Rights of the Child is not explicitly mentioned, but obviously would be a logical initial piece of the plan or later addition. In this you can see the direction of our nation.

Fellow Americans,

I am calling on you to awaken to the reality before us. The reality is that a battle is being waged against your right to raise your children. The reality is that intellectual assent to this reality will not protect you or your children. If you are not already working to spread the word and fight this battle, you must awaken from your slumber and find your role in this battle. If you are already waging battle, keep up the good fight and don't give up.

Why am I fired up this morning? First and foremost is the growing recognition that this is a spiritual battle even more than a physical or philosophical battle. This is about the God given right to teach our children about the glorious Creator God and His Son. Therefore, the battle neither begins nor ends, nor is won by words or deeds. It begins in repentance to God for our part in allowing our culture to degrade to such a point. Next comes a continual prayer for an awakening of the body of Christ. Then a prayer for guidance in what each of our roles should be in this battle and a prayer for strength and perseverance in that role. When we stand up from that prayer, we must keep our eyes on God and His work in this battle. We know our children are loved by Him even more than we love them, and can trust that He will move mightily to defend them. If we are distracted or driven to despair by looking at the works of evil, we will not be effective in this fight.

The second reason for my fervor is a video that surfaced in the past 24 hours showing school children being led in a song of praise to our President. CLICK HERE or read more about it at THIS LINK. This is what our nation is heading towards. Do not be deceived that this is an isolated incident. Stop and look at the pieces of the puzzle. It is another part to the machinery of indoctrinating our children with Statism (read more below).

Statism is just a fancy term for the belief that government can, will, and should supply all our needs. Our Founders did not create such a government. We have not thrived as a country based on this belief. AND WE SURE DON'T NEED IT NOW ANY MORE THAN THEN.
However, our leaders are preaching this more and more to the masses. More entitlements. More forfeiture of liberty and property for the "greater good". More government and LESS freedom.

Will we allow this to take our children? Do not answer this question with words unless those words are directed to God in prayer. Then act on God's calling in His Word and in your heart.
May God save our country,Eric Potter MDTennessee Director for Parental Rights.Org

Constitution Week Calling Campaign

Celebrate Constitution Week!!!

This week marks the anniversary of our US Constitution, the oldest democratic constitution still in use. By God's grace, this document has protected freedoms within our country for over 200 years and has been a light of freedom across the globe as well.
Besides pausing to appreciate this treasure this week, please take a few minutes to help uphold these rights. We are asking you to call those Congressmen who have not committed to sponsoring the parental rights amendment yet and ask them to "get off the fence". We would also hope that you can tell at least one other person to do the same. Together we may keep our rights to raise our children according to the values and beliefs that we hold dear. Without each other, we may lose those rights to our government.

During this time we must also remember that the Constitution is only a piece of paper and "we, the people" are entrusted to uphold its principles and to hold government accountable to these principles.

"God grants liberty only to those who love it, and are always ready to guard and defend it." -- Daniel Webster (1834) "Eternal vigilance is the price of liberty" -- either Thomas Jefferson or Patrick Henry ?

Our parental rights to raise our children according to a heritage of values and beliefs that we hold dear is now at stake on a bartering block for the noble cause of "child rights". If we do not pay the price for their hearts and minds, their future will pay the price of our negligence.

The smallest token you can deposit in the bank of freedom this week is to call your Congressmen if they haven't committed to sponsor the Parental Rights Amendment yet. Go to THIS PAGE and, if your Congressmen is NOT a sponsor, call and urge them to join this battle.

You can find out who your Congressmen are by going to THIS LINK and typing in your address or zip code. It will give you names, phone numbers, and web contacts.
