The Media Is Leading The New Age of Spiritual Anarchy by Akindele Akinyemi

I am sick and tired of the media biased coverage of Sen. Barack Obama run for the Presidency. They have made this man like Jesus Christ. Every single newspaper, magazine, and television network have something about Barack Obama, his wife and children. These people are NOT the Huxtables, this is NOT the Cosby Show and if you think that these Black Liberal Democrats are for the people please think again.

Meanwhile, the same media has made the Republicans look like evil. While our party have problems from within and we will need to correct this in the upcoming years this party is far from evil. They have made Sen. John McCain look like an incompetent old White man and have destroyed Gov. Sarah Palin because she is a social conservative.

The media is the ultimate evil. They make and break people as they seem fit. It is so sickening that I cannot turn on the TV without seeing Obama. It is so sickening to see how the media has allowed Obama to push all of his weak public policies on TV and radio. Meanwhile, you have any Republicans, whether they are working with the McCain-Palin camp or strategists, on TV they are automatically tuned out.

And what kills me is that while every liberal network promotes Obama as Jesus Christ liberals beat up on Fox News. ONE SINGLE NETWORK. They beat up on Fox News because Fox News promotes more of a conservative viewpoint.

The sad thing is the number of Black people that are going to hell for voting blindly for Obama. Here is a man that said, on LIVE TV, that he would not punish his daughter with a baby if she became pregnant. He called making a baby a MISTAKE. What type of foolishness is to say in front of 20,000 people? When Rick Warren asked him when does a baby gets human rights in Obama's view he could not even answer the question and claimed it was above his pay grade. This is the same man that supports infanticide.

Black people are not thinking logical when they support Obama. They are caught up with the media's excitement of America's first Black President. Had Obama been talking the same language as a Republican he would not been as popular as he is now. The media would have been trying to punish him for his relationships with Bill Ayers or Rev. Jeremiah Wright.

Again, look at the media. When we see Black political analysts like Roland Martin and Keli Goff spinning the issue on behalf of Obama they get a free pass to bash true conservatives who stick to their core principles in the Black community. However, when Black Republican strategists such as Angela McGlowan and Tara Wall are on TV supporting and defending conservative principles we hear people in our own community calling them the puppets of White power, Aunt Jemima and Sambo. How come we cannot give these same Black women the proper respect as other Black liberal Democratic analysts?

I would like to paraphrase from a letter that I received via e-mail from a friend of mine. If the media successfully encourage people to vote for Obama on November 4th and he is successful in winning the Presidency Saul Alinsky will be coming back from the dead to celebrate. The biggest losers will be Black Americans. Here is why.

The media fills our children with images that are non-Christian. This rages from murders, sex on all levels to gay and lesbian relationships on major network television. Do you think Obama will call on Congress or the FCC to curtail these images that continues to make our children (and parents) numb?

Speaking of the media and homosexuality America would become Brokeback Mountain under an Obama Administration. Remember, this is the same Obama that claims that America is no longer a Judeo-Christian nation but a nation of Hindus, Muslims, Christians and even non-believers. The LAST quote on nonbelievers is dangerous because this opens the doors for spiritual anarchy.

Spiritual Anarchy cannot come from Obama personally but his picks to the U.S. Supreme Court may be detrimental to American and especially Blacks. For him to consider Gov. Jennifer Granholm to the U.S. Supreme Court is totally outrageous. Plus, he would not pick these judges to sit on the U.S. Supreme Court based on qualification but totally based on partisan politics. He is interested in judicial activists not qualified judges to sit on the nation's highest court.

Between the unholy alliance of the Obama Administration, his picks on the U.S. Supreme Court and the media our spiritual liberties, as Americans, would be in jeopardy.

For example I would like to use a letter that was distributed to conservatives from Focus on the Family. This will happen under a Democratic White House, Congress and Supreme Court.

(1) The most far-reaching transformation of American society came from the Supreme Court’s stunning affirmation, in early 2010, that homosexual “marriage” was a “constitutional” right that had to be respected by all 50 states because laws barring same-sex “marriage” violated the Equal Protection clause of the U.S. Constitution. Suddenly, homosexual “marriage” was the law of the land in all 50 states, and no state legislature, no state Supreme Court, no state Constitutional amendment, not even Congress, had any power to change it. The Supreme Court had ruled, and the discussion was over. This was a blatant example of creating law by the court, for homosexual “marriage” was mentioned nowhere in the Constitution, nor would any of the authors have imagined that same-sex “marriage” could be derived from their words. But it just followed the precedents that had been set by state supreme courts in Massachusetts (2003), California (2008) and Connecticut (2008).

(2) Boy Scouts. The Boy Scouts no longer exist as an organization. They chose to disband rather than be forced to obey the Supreme Court decision that they would have to hire homosexual scoutmasters and allow them to sleep in tents with young boys. (This was to be expected with a change in the court, since the 2000 decision Boy Scouts of America v. Dale, which affirmed the right of the Boy Scouts as a private organization to dismiss a homosexual scoutmaster, was a 5-4 decision, with Stevens, Ginsburg, Souter and Breyer dissenting even then.)

It had become increasingly difficult for the Boy Scouts to find meeting places anyway,
because in 2009 Congress passed and President Obama signed an expansion of the Civil Rights
Act of 1964, which extended federal civil rights protections to people engaging in homosexual
behavior. So the Boy Scouts had already been kicked out of all public facilities.

(3) Elementary schools Elementary schools now include compulsory training in varieties of gender identity in Grade 1, including the goodness of homosexuality as one possible personal choice. Many parents tried to “opt out” their children from such sessions, but the courts have ruled they cannot do this, noting that education experts in the government have decided that such training is essential to children’s psychological health.

In addition, many private Christian schools decided to shut down after the Supreme Court
ruled that anti-discrimination laws that include sexual orientation extended to private institutions such as schools, and that private schools also had to obey the law and teach that homosexuality and heterosexuality are both morally good choices.

(4) Adoption agencies. There are no more Roman Catholic or evangelical Protestant adoption agencies in the United States. Following earlier rulings in New York and Massachusetts, the U.S. Supreme Court in 2011 ruled that these agencies had to agree to place children with homosexual couples or lose their licenses. Just as the Catholic Charities adoption agency had closed down for this reason in Massachusetts in 2006,9 so all similar agencies across the United States have now closed down rather than violate their consciences about the moral wrong of homosexual behavior.

(5) Businesses with government contracts. All businesses that have government contracts at the national, state or local level now have to provide documentation of equal benefits for same-sex couples. This was needed to overcome “systemic discrimination” against them and followed on a national level the pattern of policies already in place in San Francisco, Los Angeles and Seattle.

(6) Public broadcasting. The Bible can no longer be freely preached over radio or television stations when the subject matter includes such “offensive” doctrines as criticizing homosexual behavior. The Supreme Court agreed that these could be kept off the air as prohibited “hate speech” that is likely to incite violence and discrimination. These policies followed broadcasting and print restrictions that were in place prior to 2008 in Canada and Sweden.

(7) Doctors and lawyers. Physicians who refuse to provide artificial insemination for lesbian couples now face significant fines or loss of their license to practice medicine, following the reasoning of a decision of the California Supreme Court in North Coast Women's Care Medical Group v. Superior Court of San Diego County (Benitez), which was announced August 18, 2008. As a result, many Christian physicians have retired or left the practices of family medicine and obstetrics & gynecology. Lawyers who refuse to handle adoption cases for same-sex couples similarly now lose their licenses to practice law.

(8) Counselors and social workers. All other professionals who are licensed by individual states are also prohibited from discriminating against homosexuals. Social workers and counselors, even counselors in church staff positions, who refuse to provide “professional, appropriately nurturing marriage counseling” for homosexual couples lose their counseling licenses. Thousands of Christians have left these professions as a result.

(9) Homosexual weddings. Church buildings are now considered a “public accommodation” by the Supreme Court, and churches have no freedom to refuse to allow their buildings to be used for wedding ceremonies for homosexual couples. If they refuse, they lose their tax-exempt status, and they are increasingly becoming subject to fines and anti discrimination lawsuits.

(10) Homosexual church staff members. While churches are still free to turn down homosexual applicants for the job of senior pastor, churches and parachurch organizations are no longer free to reject homosexual applicants for staff positions such as part-time youth pastor or director of counseling. Those that have rejected homosexual applicants have had their tax-exempt status revoked, and now the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission has begun to impose heavy fines for each instance of such “discrimination,” which, they say, is “contrary to the U.S. Constitution as defined by the Supreme Court.”

(11) Homosexuals in the military. One change regarding the status of homosexuals did
not wait for any Supreme Court decision. In the first week after his inauguration, President
Obama invited homosexual rights leaders from around the United States to join him at the White
House as he signed an executive order directing all branches of the military to abandon their
“don’t ask, don’t tell” policy and to start actively recruiting homosexuals. As a result,
homosexuals are now given special bonuses for enlisting in military service (to attempt to
compensate for past discrimination), and all new recruits, and all active-duty and reserve
personnel, are compelled to take many hours of “sensitivity training” to ensure they demonstrate positive attitudes toward those with different sexual orientations and practices. Any one who seems hesitant or who objects is routinely passed over for promotion. In addition, any chaplain who holds to an interpretation of Scripture that homosexual conduct is morally wrong and therefore does not espouse “mainstream values,” is dismissed from the military.

(12) High schools. High schools are no longer free to allow “See You at the Pole” meetings where students pray together, or any student Bible studies even before or after school. The Supreme Court ruled this is considered speech that is both “proselytizing” and involves “worship,” special categories of speech which, as liberal Justice John Paul Stevens argued in his dissent in Good News Club v. Milford Central School (2001), should not be allowed in public schools, since it is in a different category from other kinds of speech. (Justice Souter filed a similar dissent, which Justice Ginsburg joined). The new 6-3 liberal majority on the Supreme Court followed his reasoning and outlawed any use of school property for any kind of religious meeting, even outside of normal school hours. In addition, Christian students cannot raise religious objections to curriculum material that promotes homosexual behavior.

(13) Pledge of Allegiance. Public school teachers are no longer free to lead students in the Pledge of Allegiance to the flag of the United States. The 9th Circuit U. S. Court of Appeals heard a new challenge to the phrase “under God” in the Pledge, and, as it had in 2002 in Newdow v. United States Congress, Elk Grove Unified School District, et al., it held the wording to be unconstitutional. Now the Supreme Court has upheld this decision.

(14) Freedom of Choice Act (in-depth). Congress lost no time in solidifying abortion rights under President Obama. In fact, Obama had promised, “The first thing I’ll do as president is sign the Freedom of Choice Act” (July 17, 2007, speech to the Planned Parenthood Action Fund).

This federal law immediately nullified hundreds of state laws that had created even the
slightest barrier to abortion. States can no longer require parental involvement for minors who wish to have an abortion, waiting period, informed consent rules, restrictions on tax-payer
funding or restrictions on late-term abortions. The act reversed the Hyde Amendment, so the
government now funds Medicaid abortions for any reason. As a result, the number of abortions
has increased dramatically. The Freedom of Choice Act also reversed the Partial Birth Abortion
Ban Act of 2003, so infants can be killed outright just seconds before they would be born. States
whose laws were overturned challenged the law in court but it was upheld by the Obama
Supreme Court.

(15) Nurses and abortions. Nurses are no longer free to refuse to participate in abortions for reasons of conscience. If they refuse to participate, they lose their jobs, for they are now failing to comply with federal law. Many Christian nurses have left the health care field rather than violate their consciences.

(16) Pornography. It’s almost impossible to keep children from seeing pornography. The Supreme Court in 2011 nullified all Federal Communications Commission restrictions on obscene speech or visual content in radio and television broadcasts. As a result, television programs at all hours of the day contain explicit portrayals of sexual acts. The court applied more broadly the “Miller test” from the 1973 decision in Miller v. California, by which a work could not be found obscene unless “the work, taken as a whole, lacks serious literary, artistic, political, and scientific value.” In the 2011 decision, the court essentially found that any pornographic work had some measure of “serious artistic value,” at least according to some observers, and thus any censorship of pornographic material was an unconstitutional restriction on the First Amendment. In addition, all city and county laws restricting pornography were struck down by this decision. As a result, pornographic magazines are openly displayed in gas stations, grocery stores and on newsstands (as they have been in some European countries for several years).

(17) Guns. It is illegal for private citizens to own guns for self defense in eight states, and the number is growing with increasing Democratic control of state legislatures and governorships. This was the result of a 6-3 Supreme Court decision in which the court reversed its 5-4 decision that had upheld private gun ownership in District of Columbia v. Heller (2008).

(18) Home schooling. Parents’ freedom to teach their children at home has been severely restricted. The Supreme Court, to the delight of the National Education Association, followed the legal reasoning of a February 28, 2008, ruling in Re: Rachel L by the 2nd District Court of Appeal in California (although that ruling was later reversed). In the later case, the Supreme Court declared that home schooling was a violation of state educational requirements except in cases where the parents (a) had an education certificate from an accredited state program., (b) agreed to use state-approved textbooks in all courses, and (c) agreed not to teach their children that homosexual conduct is wrong, or that Jesus is the only way to God, since these ideas have been found to hinder students’ social adjustment and acceptance of other lifestyles and beliefs, and to run counter to the state’s interest in educating its children to be good citizens. Parents found in violation of this ruling have been subject to prosecutions for truancy violation, resulting in heavy fines and eventual removal of their children from the home.

(19) Iraq. “The home of the brave”? President Obama fulfilled his campaign promise and
began regular withdrawal of U.S. troops from Iraq, completing it in the promised 16 months, by April 2010. All was peaceful during those months, but then in May 2010, Al-Qaida operatives
from Syria and Iran poured into Iraq and completely overwhelmed the Iraqi security forces. A
Taliban-like oppression has taken over in Iraq, and hundreds of thousands of “American
sympathizers” have been labeled as traitors, imprisoned, tortured, and killed. The number put to death may soon reach the millions.

(20) Health care systems. The new Congress under President Obama passed a nationalized “single provider” health care system, in which the U.S. government is the provider of all health care in the United States, following the pattern of nationalized medicine in the United Kingdom and Canada. The great benefit is that medical care is now free for everyone -- if you can get it. Now that health care is free, it seems everybody wants more of it. The waiting list for prostate cancer surgery is 3 years. The waiting list for ovarian cancer is 2 years. Just as the Canadian experience had shown prior to 2008 with its nationalized health care, so in the U.S. only a small number of MRIs are performed — down 90% from 2008 — because they are too expensive, and they discover more problems that need treatment, so they are almost never authorized.

(21) Taxes. Tax rates have gone up on personal income, dividends, capital gains, corporations, and inheritance transfers. The amount of income subject to Social Security tax has nearly doubled. The effect on the economy has been devastating. We have experienced a prolonged recession. Everyone has been hurt by this, but the poor have been hurt most. In dozens of cities, there are no jobs to be found.

It turns out that the people President Obama called “the rich” were not all that rich. They
were just ordinary people who worked hard, saved, and built small businesses that provided jobs
and brought economic growth. They kept inventing new and better ways to produce things and
bring prices down. They produced the goods and services that gave us the highest standard of
living in history. They provided the competition that kept prices low. And the top 50% of earners
were already paying 97% of income taxes collected by the U.S. government in 2006.

President Obama increased their tax burden so much that many business owners decided
they didn’t want to work any harder when the government was taking so much away. “The land
of the free?” Not for the most productive workers in the American economy. Just as nearly 2
million citizens in the decade prior to 2008 had moved out of California and New York when
the Democrats had control and kept raising state taxes, many of these entrepreneurs have moved their money, their factories, and often themselves, overseas. So many jobs have been lost that welfare rolls have swelled, and President Obama is calling for more taxes to meet the needs of those without work.

(22) Energy. World demand for oil continues to climb, and prices keep going up, but
President Obama for four years has refused to allow additional drilling for oil in the United States or offshore. Gas costs more than $7 per gallon, and many Democrats openly applaud this,
since high prices reduce oil consumption and thus reduce carbon dioxide output. But working
Americans are hit hard by these costs.

Nuclear energy would provide a substitute for oil in some cases, and could generate
electricity to power electric cars, but environmentalist legal challenges have prevented the
construction of nuclear plants, and the courts have been leaning so far in a pro-environmentalist
direction that nobody expects the construction of nuclear plants for several decades, if ever.
Obama keeps reminding people we cannot guarantee it will be safe.

(23) Christian books. After the Supreme Court legalized same “sex marriage,”
homosexual-activist groups targeted three large Christian book publishers that had publications
arguing that homosexual conduct was wrong based on the teachings of the Bible. The activists
staged marches and protests at Barnes & Noble stores around the country, demanding the stores
remove all books published by these “hate-mongering” publishers.

Do you fully understand this? While this letter was being distributed across the Internet it poses the real serious threat of an Obama Administration. This is called spiritual anarchy. The most frightening thing about all of this is how the media has brainwashed our young adults into thinking that it's OK to be pro-choice, bi-sexual, homosexual, drop out of school, be on welfare for long periods of time, sag our pants in public, wear a head wrap in public like we are on a slave plantation, tattoos all over our bodies along with ear, tongue and nipple piercings as well as substituting church with some New Age religion that is not Christ centered. Young people are more interested in prosperity churches, interested in NOT going to church or interpret the Bible to fit their unholy lifestyle. This is what an Obama Adminstration would welcome and support. Again, spiritual anarchy is in the making.

70% of the problems that occur in the Black community stems from sexual immorality. Pro-Choice opponents? A code word to leave the door cracked to have more sex with someone you might not want to be with and that person knocks you up. Your fall back words include "rape" and "incest."

Obama supports New Age religion. Period. While many of his supporters says he is a Christian what TYPE of Christian no one can answer. Remember, his mother was an atheist. Will Black Theology, Saul Alinsky's teachings and the tenests of atheism guide his policy decisions if he is elected to the White House? What happens to Black people who did not support Obama during this historic Presidential run? We will be called every name in the book. Our persecution will be worse than others because in the Black community you are taught not to think for yourself, do for yourself and vote on your values. You are taught from birth to vote Democratic, seek an handout, go to church to please your grandmother, go to school (regardless of the school is failing or whether you are learning something) and play video games all day without supervision.

Young adults in the inner cities cannot give a reason why they are voting for Obama other than he is Black and popular. They do not care about his polices that might affect THEIR children or future children. It's all about Diddy on MTV, VH1 or BET promoting Obama. Hell, if Diddy is supporting Obama, as well as Will and Jada Pickett-Smith and the rest of Hollywood then it's OK for our community to follow the Devil straight to hell. The funny thing is not one young adult who is supporting Obama can factually tell me what the Democratic Party has done for Black people.

Spiritual anarachy is knocking at our doorsteps. Obama is going to do more harm with Black Americans than Bush, or even Clinton. Like I said before, I am not against a Black President. I am against OBAMA being my next President. When have in the 40 years of modern day Black History where a Black Liberal Democrat, who had a radical agenda, have successfully led a city, or ANY form of government into prosperity? Never. So what the hell makes you think that Obama, with his bells and whistles of hope and change, is going to do ANYTHING different? If anything, he policies will place us back in pre-Reconstruction. OBAMA will be turning the CLOCK back on BLACK progress NOT McCain or the REPUBLICANS. Detroit has a 32.5% poverty rate under BLACK LIBERAL LEADERSHIP. This is NOT to be taken lightly ladies and gentlemen.

The media, Democratic Congress and Obama has made evil look good and made those people who are hard working Christians look like evil. I hope Black Republicans who are reading this will realize that there is no time to sit on the fence when OUR children lives are at stake. It's time to wake up and get moving if we want to help our community.

Though I tend to think Dobson's group is presenting the extreme results, I suspect much of what they predict is accurate in this case.

It will start with removal of our ability to defend ourselves.

Then the "press" which openly advocates the Obama nation will find itself shackled.

Then government SPONSORED "youth volunteer" groups will patrol, monitor and enforce through suggestion initially, then coercive measures the very things you mention.

As for the Black thing. The media has truly framed this as the last best hope for a black candidate, as a HISTORICAL opportunity. This of course has even stalwart Republican Blacks (one of my own best friends) considering the vote for his "heritage."

I actually thought I would stay mad at him longer. But he explained it in a way I doubt I could repeat. He is wrong, but at least I have a partial understanding.

My argument to him remains however that if this guy screws things up as he is likely, then the mistake might reflect poorly on his "heritage," rather than the incredible social manipulations of communist development in the eyes of many.

[My name is Michael. And I saw the following shocking item on the web.]


Obama is pro-choice. His party is No. 1 in choosing fast death (by abortion) and slow death (by AIDS). But Obama wouldn't choose this slogan: "Unborn children should have the same right to be born alive that abortionists had!" And he wouldn't want folks to Google "Obama Supports Public Depravity." (This is Pelosi's district, and the mayor told the cops to NOT arrest anyone exercising the kinky, child-abusing "rights" Obama approves of that are flaunted on public streets where children are!) After recovering, Yahoo "God to Same-Sexers: Hurry Up" and "Dangerous Radicals of the Religious Right." See all of this before the Creator responds with quakes, storms, and other bad news. Obama etc. don't want folks to know what goes on at these "gay" festivals because news of them could ignite and unite the Religious Right like nothing else - which explains why nothing was said about "gay" rights at any of the Presidential debates! Incredibly, the unnatural acts which forced God to destroy Sodom and Gomorrah, and which were capital crimes (along with murder) in early America, are now insanely viewed as "natural" and even "desirable" by those choosing to fulfill the role of the ones who "perish" in II Thess. 2:10-12!

(Obama, Pelosi, and Newsom did not approve of this message!)

Christians aren't any more good or any more evil than Muslims. As Powell said last week: why shouldn't a small child growing up Muslim in America dream about one day becoming president?

Such things would of course set Dobson and his ilk off big time, who seem to think theirs is the only religion endorsed by the Founding Fathers. But there's irony in that viewpiont, to say the least.

You of all people, give your name and your heritage, should understand what this country represents as far as all people and all view and all religions being EQUAL and FREE here.

True, you are frustrated. Got it. But this about the most hate-filled entry I've seen you make to date.
