Disney Now Has Cartoon Showing Homosexuals Kissing

The popular children’s entertainment company Disney aired its first-ever same-sex kissing scene on [February 28] during a broadcast of its television cartoon Star vs. the Forces of Evil, raising concerns from Christian and family groups who are calling upon parents to kiss Disney goodbye….

Homosexual advocacy groups cheered the inclusion, stating, “We’re getting there, one kiss at a time.”

…However, others expressed concern, stating that Disney should not be pushing the homosexual agenda on children.

“This is the last place parents would expect their children to be confronted with content regarding sexual orientation,” One Million Moms wrote on their website….

Editor’s Comments:  Again Disney is promoting an agenda that is antifamily.  Parents should think twice about allowing their children to watch anything currently coming from them.

UK, Australia Won’t Fund Free Abortions After Trump Defunds International Planned Parenthood

The United Kingdom and Australia did not give money to a new global abortion fund [early March], despite intense pressure from abortion activists worldwide.

The new “She decides” abortion fund comes in reaction to U.S. President Donald Trump’s executive order prohibiting American taxpayer funding to groups that promote or perform abortions overseas.

USA Today reports representatives from more than 45 countries attended a meeting about the new abortion fund on [March 2] in Brussels, Belgium.  About a dozen countries and several private donors pledged money totaling 181 million euros (about $190 million), according to the report.

While the UK and Australia sent representatives to the meeting, neither country promised money.

“Straight Pride” Fliers Removed From School

“Straight Pride” fliers were removed [March 3] by an Indiana high school before the students arrived [at] school.  The 16-year-old….student who created and hung “Straight Pride” fliers in an Indiana high school has spoken out since officials took them down….and fellow students hosted a pro-acceptance gathering over the weekend in response to the incident.

The fliers ….read, “Celebrate being straight at JHS by not annoying the heck out of everyone about your sexual orientation!”  along with “We are taking back the rainbow” and “Brought to you by all the students that are sick of hearing about your LGBT Pride.”  -theblaze.com

“Millennials”

Sixty percent of “millennials” are living with their parents or other relatives or are sharing living quarters with a roommate (USA Today, 3/21/17.  Source, Trulia Analysis of Census data).

“Millennials” they call them.  They’re between the ages of 18 and 35.

We will admit that certain circumstances in anybody’s family could create the necessity for staying at home.  That could be true at almost any age, but 60 percent is three out of five.  That’s a perplexing statistic.

Why aren’t these birds leaving the nest?  Is it because they have not learned to fly?  Have we failed to get them ready to make it on their own?

Financial issues will account for some of this; but knowing the way our society is being shaped, it is pretty clear that the bigger issue is young people who are unready to be adults.

Christian families need to be alert to how they are raising their offspring.

This article is another reason I believe this could be the terminal generation.  Absolutely any people with convictions about anything whatsoever, will be able to supersede this clueless and feckless generation who lack personal values, integrity, and cannot even pull their own weight.   Pastor Steve

Amen Corner

An enemy said of Spurgeon, “Here is a man who has not moved an inch forward in all his ministry.  At the close of the nineteenth century he is teaching the theology of the first century and is proclaiming doctrine current in Nazareth and Jerusalem in the first century!”  Spurgeon considered it his greatest compliment.

What is the profit to America by having endless economic prosperity, computers and a hundred channels of television in every home…if our families are shattered and our children corrupted?  -Former Senator Bill Armstrong

A brave man is a man who dares to look the Devil in the face and tell him he is a devil.  -James A. Garfield

I will blaze the trail, though my grave be only a steppingstone that younger men may follow and make Christ known where He is unknown.  -C. T. Studd

Much of our difficulty as seeking Christians stems from our unwillingness to take God as He is and adjust our lives accordingly.  We insist upon trying to modify Him and to bring Him nearer to our own image.  A.W. Tozer

Perhaps you have never been stalked by a bloodthirsty beast of prey.  Nevertheless, there is a wild beast on your trail.  Swift and pitiless, retribution trails you.  “Be sure your sin will find you out”  (Numbers 32:23).

I don’t want anybody falling over me into Hell, saying, “Brother Curtis preached it but didn’t practice it.”   -Curtis Hutson
