Metairie legislator proposes sterilization for poor women

04:35 PM CDT on Wednesday, September 24, 2008

Associated Press

State Representative John LaBruzzo of Metairie said many of his constituents are tired of paying for children from poor families and that is why he is considering proposing legislation that would pay women on government assistance $1,000 if they choose to be sterilized.

“You have these people who are just fed up with working their buns off to try to provide for their own family and being forced by the government to provide for others’ families who just want to have unlimited kids,” he said.

LaBruzzo said he is studying voluntary sterilization for women whose sole financial support comes from the government in the form of welfare or other public assistance. His idea would be to give the women $1,000 if they had their tubes tied.

His proposal has come under harsh criticism by so…

10 Ways for Worship Leaders to Hinder the Church

Voddie Baucham on Sarah Palin....

Select Quotes from the interview:

"...Political Ideology is really an outgrowth of our religious beliefs. You can't separate what a person believes from how a person will govern, so I think it's incredibly important that we know where people stand on religious issues."

"We're about the Gospel. The culture doesn't dictate truth, the Bible dictates truth..."

“…I will not violate the teaching of the text in order to somehow sound more appropriate for the culture. I am herald of the truth of the Gospel, and my job is to teach the Gospel according to what the authors have said, not according to what I think the culture wants to hear. “

Pragmatic and Black

I have to address 2 things that keeps popping up re: this election...

1) Black people saying that I should vote for Sen. Obama 'because he's Black'
and
2) Christians running the 'we have to be pragmatic' aka the 'lesser of two evils' argument. I even heard a sister say that she is angered by 'one issue Christians'

I have even been told that it is time for 'pragmatism over faith'

I am going to remove the faith issue from this discussion, because the reality is that we (People in general, Christians specifically) seem to forget that God is not democratic. God clearly is 'pro-free will', and pro-decision', but just as clearly gives us plenty of instruction on the choices and decisions we must make. The body of Christ is not a democracy, and we preachers/pastors (especially American ones) have failed miserably by doing/teaching/advocating convenience and political correctness and dare I say it…Pragmatism over Holiness, Righteousness, an…

Bishop Weeks is at it again

Blessings all
In a post on the Black Preaching Network site, I asked a question about the conduct of Bishop Weeks, and received some flack for it. I was told the usual ‘Judge Not’ , I was told that I was not showing ‘love’ other interesting things…
This after Bishop Weeks:
Physically assaulted the church secretary

Went on a NY radio show, and insinutated that his wife is Bisexual, and admitted to regular, Doctor sanctioned masturbation
Here is a part of the interview that HE posted himself


Admitted to, and was convicted of, assaulting his wife


This time, I ask that you reader, click the link below, and go read about the Bishop’s latest escapade. After you have done this, please hold it up to the scripture below the link
Bishop Weeks announces Reality Show


1 Timothy 3:1-7: "This is a faithful saying: If a man desires the position of a bishop, he desires a good work. A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, temperate, sober-minded, of good behavior, hospitable, able to te…

Why I can't vote for John McCain Part 1

Ok, I'm Sorry that this one has taken so long.
But every time I think it's done, he does or says something else utterly ridiculous. Seriously, I've been writing this since before he picked Sarah Palin. That pick alone disqualifies him for so many reasons.
I think this is turning into a top ten list,(in no order) and probably not the only one being that I can't even get to the policies yet....

10 - A Maverick, eh?
Note this verbatim exchange with the late Tim Russert:
RUSSERT:"It is interesting. The Washington Post put up these numbers. Hillary Clinton has an 81 percent approval among Dems; 55 percent approval amongst Independents; 20 with the GOP. You have a 59 percent approval with Democrats; 59 with Independents; and just 56 with Republicans. And what people point to — and this is an article in your hometown paper, the Arizona Republic, "At Odds With Bush. John McCain repeatedly has taken maverick positions that have put him at odds with President Bush's a…

Time to refocus

All the pre-election hype and hysteria has had me pre-occupied and off track.
But I, like Dorothy, The Tin Man, The Cowardly Lion and The ScareCrow, have awakened from the (un)pleasant reverie, and it is now back to what is important...


What is really important:


GOD IS HOLY!!

Donnie McClurkin - HOLY


I will lift my voice and I will sing Holy, Holy
To my Lord and Savior, my God and king
I will sing Holy, Holy

I will praise the lamb of God who sits upon the throne
I will worship Him and give the praise to Him alone
He who was and is and is to come
I will sing before His throne forever, forever

All the angels sing, they bow down, and they say Holy, Holy
We, Your sons and daughters, we praise You now
And we cry Holy, Holy

I will praise the lamb of God who sits upon the throne
I will worship Him and give the praise to Him alone
He who was and is and is to come
I will sing before His throne forever, forever…

Basia: Yearning

"tender feelings heal with flowers
when your woes and sorrows leave you
overwhelmed
for the state of endless sadness or
uncompleted mourning--
take star of Bethlehem,
there's willow if bitter, when helpless--
wild rose,
some sunshine wattle revives all lost hopes"
but for a simple case of longing--
what are we to do when homeless in our
hearts and souls

some of us take daring chances following our
lovers--
the passion we can trust...
others just cannot sit still--
they're driven by the power of mighty
wanderlust
wherever we go, God, we're trying so hard
to make every place feel like home left behind
but despite of all endeavors--nothing
changed,
as ever--we're homeless in our hearts...

But I'm yearning no more
'cause i found my home in you
and now it's where i belong
i gave up the world to be with you

come to me, I'll soothe your yearning...

is this what you've always dreamed of
the aim of our desire is hard to recognize
it often stares you in the face and yet, against

The Obama-Nation delusion

I apologize dear reader, the next post was supposed to be one in which I explain why I find John S.McCain (JSM) completely unacceptable as a Presidential candidate. That is coming, but I must first address a problematic theme that I see.

In the past week, I have heard the Democratic Party’s nominee, Sen. Barack H. Obama (BHO), described as: ‘The man of God’, I have heard his nomination acceptance speech described as reminiscent of Moses on the mount, and I have heard that 'God is pro- Obama', because he allowed hurricanes to hit during the Republican Convention, while there was perfect weather during the Democratic convention..
I have heard Gov. Sarah Palin (the Republican’s VP candidate) described as ‘evil’, ‘the same as a Jihadist’,'dangerous' and ‘not of God’, and unbelievably 'The Whore of Babylon'. Mind you, this was all from 'Christians'.

I have received emails, which state that if she is elected, it would be like having someone strap bombs to Ameri…

If God is so powerful and so good, why do bad things happen?

Truth has stumbled in the streets, honesty cannot enter.

Man stands in church to confront a heretic. Man does so, not violently, but in earnest. Church sings him to drown him out, and escort him out of the building....
Isaiah 59
14 So justice is driven back,
and righteousness stands at a distance;
truth has stumbled in the streets,
honesty cannot enter.

15 Truth is nowhere to be found,
and whoever shuns evil becomes a prey.
The LORD looked and was displeased
that there was no justice.
