Ted Cruz Renews Pledge To Support Radical Personhood Amendment

Georgia Right to Life, one of the most outspoken proponents of the movement to grant legal “personhood” to fertilized eggs and fetuses, has endorsed Sen. Ted Cruz for president after he signed their candidate pledge promising to “support a personhood amendment to the U.S. Constitution.”

GRTL’s pledge, which the group says Cruz signed, asks candidates to affirm that “a continuum of human life and personhood begins at the moment of fertilization” and promise to protect “the civil rights of the pre-born at an embryonic or fetal level.” In practice, personhood would not only criminalize all abortions, it could also endanger some common forms of birth control and put women who have suffered miscarriages at risk of prosecution.

The Georgia group’s advocacy of sweeping personhood measures to ban abortion is so radical that it caused it to split from the National Right to Life Committee. 

When Cruz was running for Senate in 2012, he promised another personhood group that he would cosponsor the Life at Conception Act, a personhood bill that seeks to ban all abortions and even some types of birth control through legislation rather than a constitutional amendment. When Cruz’s presidential rival Rand Paul introduced the bill, however, Cruz never signed on as a cosponsor.

Linda Harvey: LGBT Rights Will 'Wipe Out Free Speech' And 'Obliterate' Christianity

After the Shepard-Byrd Hate Crimes Prevention Act was signed into law in 2009, many anti-LGBT activists claimed that it would criminalize free speech and religious expression. They said the exact same thing following the Windsor and Obergefell decisions, and yet gay marriage opponents still have the right to criticize marriage equality, contrary to their own predictions.

Even though none of these predictions about the hate crimes law or marriage equality came true, critics now say that this time they have found the real legislation through which the LGBT rights movement will ban free speech: The Equality Act.

Writing in WorldNetDaily, Linda Harvey of Mission America alleges that the nondiscrimination bill threatens to “silence believers” and “essentially wipe out free speech and religious liberty on the issues of homosexuality and gender change.”

“Christianity is now a target to be obliterated or revised,” Harvey writes, labeling the bill a “fascist attempt to dismantle the First Amendment.”

The “gay lobby” has tried it before. But now that marriage is officially a grand social experiment in our nation, homosexual activists have moved on, updating and re-launching the next weapon of revolution. And it’s a whopper, one that potentially unites homosexual advocates with defenders of Planned Parenthood.

Their enemy? Christians, conservatives and all who are pro-life and pro-family.

The unjust and unequal “Equality Act” was introduced in Congress as H.R. 3185 and S. 1858 just before summer recess. This legislation jumps way beyond any previous anti-discrimination bill and would essentially wipe out free speech and religious liberty on the issues of homosexuality and gender change by declaring these behaviors to be civil rights in America.



Homosexuality is not inborn – it’s not like race – and the behavior is harmful to individuals and societies. These identities and attractions do not characterize separate types of “persons” (as the Obergefell majority ruling incorrectly assumed). So they are not defensible under the 14th Amendment.

As I wrote in a column a few months ago, the left is moving toward the position of telling us what to believe. Christianity is now a target to be obliterated or revised with homosexuality no longer a sin, humans no longer distinctly male and female, abortion a “right” for females and believers painted into a narrow doctrinal corner if we let them do this.

We must not let them do this. This bill should be Priority No. 1 to defeat this year, next year and as long as it takes. Everyone needs to make it clear to congressional representatives that this fascist attempt to dismantle the First Amendment, to defy parental authority and to drive Christians out of jobs simply cannot happen.

The authority to silence believers that the “Equality Act” would provide Christ’s enemies would leap beyond homosexuality and gender confusion. It’s tyranny, and only we the people rising up and saying NO will stop this.

The so-called “Equality Act” is not about equality – we already have that. It’s about calling evil good, calling sin a right, and about punishing and silencing the voices of morality and faith.

Staver & Barber: Red States Should Band Together To Create Abortion-Free 'Sanctuary States'

On today's "Faith and Freedom" radio program, Liberty Counsel's Mat Staver and Matt Barber called for the creation of "sanctuary states" where Planned Parenthood facilities are defunded and shut down and abortion is simply outlawed by Republican governors and state legislatures.

Praising the right-wing smear campaign against Planned Parenthood, Staver reiterated his call for the creation of abortion-free zones as he urged Congress to defund the organization and for states to follow suit, because Planned Parenthood should not be receiving "any more for genocide."

"But beyond that, we need to stop abortion," Staver declared, urging governors to "just simply say, 'Enough is enough, we're not going to kill children in our state.'"

Saying that is it not enough to simply defund Planned Parenthood, which is "like funding the Holocaust," Staver advocated the creation of "sanctuary states" where abortion would be against the law.

"You've got these so-called sanctuary cities," he said, "setting these up for the protection of illegal aliens, we should set up a sanctuary location, a sanctuary city, but particularly a sanctuary state that says that children within our state, they're protected, we will not stand by and allow them to be slaughtered in the womb."

Barber eagerly agreed, suggesting that Arizona, Georgia, Louisiana, Indiana, Kansas, Missouri, Ohio, Texas, Oklahoma and other "red states" should all "come together" and declares themselves to be "sanctuary states for the preborn."

Rick Wiles: Gay Marriage 'Sealed' America's Destruction

After making the case that God will use Muslim “avengers” to kill tens of millions of Americans as punishment for legal abortion, “Trunews” host Rick Wiles warned on “The Jim Bakker Show” yesterday that God will soon punish the U.S. for the Supreme Court’s ruling on marriage equality.

Wiles explained that just as the Medes destroyed Babylon, Iran will now destroy the new Babylon … America.

America’s shift into “Mystery Babylon,” Wiles said, came with the Obergefell decision: “I believe on June 26, 2015, when the Supreme Court made the ruling, I believe it was sealed, we made the transition. It’s done … I felt in my spirit such a dark, sickening feeling that something really evil has happened to America.”

Rick Wiles: God Sending Muslim 'Avengers' To Kill Millions As Abortion Rights Punishment

Yesterday, “Trunews” host Rick Wiles stopped by “The Jim Bakker Show,” where the two End Times preachers repeated their warnings that America is about to experience God’s wrath. Wiles explained that God is sending Muslim immigrants to the U.S. to kill millions of Americans as part of divine judgment for the legalization of abortion.

After he recounted how author John Price told him that “there is a direct correlation between the percentages of abortions in a society and the amount of Islamic immigration in the country,” Wiles explained that “the Muslims are being sent in to these Western nations that abort their babies — they’re being sent in as avengers.” 

“If we have murdered 50, 60, 70 million babies, does that say there has to be 50, 60, 70 million deaths in this country to atone for those deaths because America has not repented of those murders?” Wiles asked. “And I believe they are going to be used to extract vengeance, extract revenge, punishment on this country for aborting the babies.”

Bakker added, “Isn’t it crazy, what we perceive to be our enemy and the most evil force on earth, has morality not to murder their own babies.”

Back in February, Wiles told “Trunews” listeners that Muslim immigrants are “are the avengers who are being sent in to avenge for the deaths of innocent babies.”

Jim Bakker's Survival Food Will Let You 'Have Parties When The World Is Coming Apart'

On yesterday’s edition of his eponymous show, televangelist and survival-food peddler Jim Bakker advertised his $160 Creamy Potato Soup Buckets along with a $3,500 “7 Years of Food” package.

“You can have parties when the world is coming apart,” Bakker told viewers as he showed them his dessert food. “You can still have a birthday party!”

But if you don’t take advantage of this generous offer, Bakker warned, “you’re going to dream Jim Bakker on TV telling you ‘get ready’ and you’re going to say, ‘Oh my God, why didn’t I order something?’”

Last year, Bakker told his audience to buy a $3,000 case of desserts like ice cream sandwiches because nine out of ten Americans could die from an imminent nuclear EMP attack.

WorldNetDaily: God May Use Donald Trump To Usher In Second Coming Of Jesus

Back in July, we reported on “prophetic minister” Jeremiah Johnson’s latest “prophetic insight” about how God is using Donald Trump as a “trumpet to the American people” who will “expose darkness and perversion in America like never before.” Johnson even said that God told him that Trump will be much like an American version of King Cyrus, the Persian leader who liberated the Jews from captivity in Babylon.

WorldNetDaily executive news editor Joe Kovacs, fresh from his exposé on the appearance of President Obama’s demon spirit in Kenya, ran with the story today, pointing out that other self-proclaimed prophets have received similar messages from God about Trump.

Kovacks shares Johnson’s defense of his prophecy — in which he claims that he was simply reporting what God told him — and then adds that “the word ‘trump’ appears twice in the King James Version of the Bible, both in the New Testament, referring to trumpet blasts being sounded at the Second Coming of Jesus and the resurrection of the dead.”

Johnson admits he received an “incredibly high volume of accusations, suspicion, and hate” in the wake of his original column, so he proffered this impassioned response on Facebook:

I will not attempt to defend myself here, I will leave that up to the Lord Jesus now and when I stand before Him and give an account for every word I’ve spoken. The goal of this post is to strictly help those who read the article and have questions and what largely appears to be a gross misinterpretation of what was published.



Some Christians appear to be absolutely infuriated at the thought or prophetic word that God is going to use Donald Trump as a Trumpet to expose darkness and bring truth because of His moral background and political views. Perhaps God not being limited, subjected, and dependent to who human beings think He should use for His glory reveals their own issues with God, not a prophetic word.

I, like many of you, was shocked by the word I received regarding Donald Trump. Trust me when I say it was given with fear and trembling. Again, I am not called to prophesy what I think or what my opinion is. I simply deliver the word of the Lord and encourage the saints to test and judge what has been spoken.

I will publicly repent to the body of Christ if what was prophesied does not come to pass.




Brenda McCune, a pro-life activist, said she has been hearing the same message as Johnson.

“I absolutely receive every word of the prophesy in that article,” she said. “Thank you, Jeremiah for being faithful to your call and the Word of the Lord. The Lord has been speaking a similar Word to me, so I confirm that Word, it bears witness in my soul.”

Joseph Eric Benjamin Trimble, who studies at Chesapeake Bible College and Seminary, said he recently heard a sermon about God using “odd men to declare His Truth.”

“I believe it’s one reason we need to pray for our leaders because God can use them without them even knowing it,” he wrote. “Thank you for your boldness in sharing this word. I believe it is dead on and there will be more like him.”

The word “trump” appears twice in the King James Version of the Bible, both in the New Testament, referring to trumpet blasts being sounded at the Second Coming of Jesus and the resurrection of the dead.

“In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.” (1 Corinthians 15:52)

“For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first.” (1 Thessalonians 4:16)

“Is it possible that there is a prophetic link to Donald Trump?” asks Mike Shoesmith during a recent broadcast on the Prophecy News Network.

“Could Donald Trump be a final warning to America to pay attention? To get rid of the liberal cancer which has infested the country? Could Donald Trump and his no-nonsense, anti-political-correctness speech be the final warning from God?”

“Many people, not just this Jeremiah [Johnson], are seeing the possibility that Donald Trump is fulfilling some sort of call from God to maybe not even win the election, but just be a trumpet warning from God to His people,” Shoesmith concluded.

Ted Cruz Tells AFA That Mobilizing Christians To 'Vote Biblical Values' Is The Key To Saving America

As we noted yesterday, Sen. Ted Cruz was scheduled to stop by the headquarters of the American Family Association, an anti-gay hate group, during a campaign swing through Tupelo, Mississippi, this morning for an interview with AFA president Tim Wildmon.

Cruz indeed stopped by and told Wildmon that the key to saving America was to mobilize conservative Christians to vote.

"Nothing is more important in the next 18 months than that the body of Christ rise up and that Christians stand up, that pastors stand up and lead," Cruz proclaimed. "In this last election, 54 million evangelical Christians stayed home ... If we can simply bring Christians to the polls — is it any wonder we have the government we have, we have the leaders we have if believers stay home and leave electing our leaders to unbelievers. We get exactly what we deserve and nothing is more important that having people of faith stand up and just vote our values, vote biblical values and that's how we turn the country around."

Cruz went on to list five specific step he would take, if elected president, on his first day in office:

1. Rescind every one of President Obama "illegal executive actions."

2. Order the Department of Justice to open an investigation into Planned Parenthood for possible criminal prosecution.

3. Direct every government agency to end "the persecution of religious liberty."

4. "Rip to shreds" the Iran nuclear deal.

5. Begin the process of moving the American embassy in Israel to Jerusalem.
