    SEPARATION OF RAUNCH AND STATE !

    (It’s still legal – and always God-honoring – to air messages like the following. See Ezekiel 3:18-19. In light of government backing of raunchy behavior (such offenders were even executed in early America!), maybe the separation we really need is the “separation of raunch and state”!)

    In Luke 17 in the New Testament, Jesus said that one of the big “signs” that will happen shortly before His return to earth as Judge will be a repeat of the “days of Lot” (see Genesis 19 for details). So gays are actually helping to fulfill this same worldwide “sign” (and making the Bible even more believable!) and thus hurrying up the return of the Judge! They are accomplishing what many preachers haven’t accomplished! Gays couldn’t have accomplished this by just coming out of closets into bedrooms. Instead, they invented new architecture – you know, closets opening on to Main Streets where little kids would be able to watch naked men having sex with each other at festivals in places like San Francisco (where their underground saint – San Andreas – may soon get a big jolt out of what’s going on over his head!). Thanks, gays, for figuring out how to bring back our resurrected Saviour even quicker!

    [If you would care to learn about the depraved human “pigpen” that regularly occurs in Nancy Pelosi’s district in California, Google “Zombietime” and click on “Up Your Alley Fair” in the left column. And to think – horrors – that she is only two levels away from being President!]

    I think that it is crazy that the government is stepping in on this one. If the family, including the child, is doing things that are actually helping the child, but just avoiding the standard methods why should the government have anything to do with it. I feel like the government is overstepping its bounds more and more these days and it’s starting to get a little crazy.

We know about the (supposed) separation of church and state, which the majority of Americans agree is a good idea. But how do we feel about the separation of parenthood and state?

Well, parents Colleen and Anthony Hauser are having to deal with those feelings right now. You may be familiar with this Minnesota family who has been in the news about refusing their 13-year-old son cancer treatment. Of course, at first glance this seems like a terrible, TERRIBLE thing to do, but I think there’s more to the story here.

The Hauser’s are part of a religious group that believes in treating health problems with only herbal remedies. (Freedom of religion, anyone?)

As far as refusing to provide their son cancer treatment, the Hauser’s truly believe they are doing the right thing, as does their son.

As Americans, they have the right to do so. Still, the question of where that puts their son, Daniel, remains. If he were of legal age would he be able to decide whether he wanted to go with traditional or alternative medicine? It would be his right. Yet, he doesn’t have a choice now.

So who should get to choose for him? The government or his parents? Who gets to say what is right and what is wrong here?

According to Minnessota courts, it is the government’s responsibility to make the decision.The AP reported that Brown County District Judge John Rodenberg said “the state’s interest in protecting the child override the constitutional right to freedom of religious expression and a parent’s right to direct a child’s upbringing.”

With many complications and arguments of First Amendment right infringements, who’s right in a case like this?
