James Hartline, Publisher of The James Hartline Report, had stated last week that if the boycott could force Pitt's movie into 3rd place or lower that would be a major victory. Most Brad Pitt movies open in 1st place at the box office.
Hartline is leading a nationwide boycott against Pitt because Pitt donated $100,000 to the homosexual agenda's attempt to defeat Prop. 8, the California Marriage Protection Amendment. Hartline hopes to take at least $1 million away from ticket sales of the new Pitt movie. Scores of Catholic and Christian organizations have joined the boycott including the Catholic Exchange, a leading Catholic news website.
Hartline says that the boycott is just beginning. Other entertainers like Steven Speilberg will be added to the boycott list. Speilberg and his wife Kate Capshaw also gave $100,000 to the No on 8 campaign.
According to industry resources, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button had a production budget of $150 million. A boycott like the one underway against Brad Pitt will prove catastrophic for the producers of the movie.
"If Hollywood wants to finance the destruction of morality and marriage in America, they will not do so with further help from the Christian Community," says Hartline.

This story has been picked up by readers of the James Hartline Report and spread throughout the United States and Canada. Normally, a Brad Pitt movie debut would be number one or number two at the box office for its initial weekend. If we see this new Brad Pitt movie come in at number three or lower that would be a huge win for our side and will definitely send a message that we are going to fight this marriage issue in California until we have permanently stopped the promotion of same-sex marriages in California.
A copy of the editor's note from the Catholic Exchange on my article reads:
[CE Editor’s Note: As many of you know CE was on the front lines in the campaign for Proposition 8 in California. We urge you to continue resisting the legal redefintion of marriage. We fully concur with James Hartline that it is folly for us Catholics and other Christians to continually pad the bank accounts of those who make themselves enemies of family life in this country. We encourage all our readers to spread the word about this campaign.]

Tell Brad Pitt: No Marriage, No Movies, No Money!
Brad Pitt Attacks The Christian Community By Giving
$100,000 to the Homosexual No on Prop. 8 Campaign.
Brad Pitt Now Wants You To Go See His New Movie,
"The Curious Case of Benjamin Button" on
The Christian Holiday of Christmas
Show Brad Pitt and His Hollywood Elite Friends
That You Support Traditional Marriage Values By
Boycotting Movies Involving No on 8 Supporters
A nationally recognized Christian activist will not be among those who attends the 2008 Christmas debut of Brad Pitt's new motion picture The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. The Christian activist, James Hartline, also hopes that millions of fellow Christians will follow his example by boycotting the movie. Hartline says that this past September, Brad Pitt contributed $100,000 to the No on 8 campaign in an effort to defeat Prop 8, the California Marriage Protection Amendment. Pitt was joined by a number of wealthy actors, movie producers and other entertainment industry elites who donated large sums of money to help the homosexual political movement and their drive to legalize same-sex marriages in California.
Although, over 7 million California voters approved Prop. 8 by nearly 53% of the vote, homosexual activists are already moving to overturn Prop. 8 by placing a new statewide initiative on the 2010 ballot. Will the same Hollywood elites contribute to a future campaign to overturn Prop. 8? James Hartline believes that if Christian voters make their stand now it is highly unlikely that homosexual activists and their No on 8 campaign will enjoy the same amount of financial support from Hollywood during the 2010 election.
"I believe now is the time to let Brad Pitt and his fellow Hollywood elites know that the Christian Community is not going to sit idly by as the institution of marriage is dismantled by homosexual activists who have been getting support from wealthy entertainers," says Hartline.
Hartline also states that entertainers like Brad Pitt achieved their wealth from the millions of Christians who bought tickets to their movies, concerts, DVD's and videos. Hartline adds that the entertainers made wealthy by Christians are now using that wealth to fund the war against marriage in America.
Other liberal Hollywood elites who have been using their wealth and influence to support the homosexual political movement's attack on Prop. 8 and the institution of marriage include blockbuster movie producer Steven Spielberg and his wife actress Kate Capshaw, Whoopi Goldberg, Ellen DeGeneres and Drew Barrymore. Like Brad Pitt, Spielberg and his wife gave a total of $100,000 to the No on 8 campaign in an effort to defeat the marriage protection amendment.
Hartline also points out that Brad Pitt is demonstrating utter hypocrisy in his financial attacks against the Christian Community and that community's Biblically-based battle to defend the importance of marriage.
"Brad Pitt is living with his current girlfriend, actress Angelina Jolie, and giving large sums of money to support homosexuality. Then, he turns around and has a movie being released on the celebrated birthday of Jesus Christ, the savior of the world," declares Hartline.
"While Pitt is helping the homosexual agenda to attack the Biblical definition of marriage, he has no problem raking in the money by having a movie released on Christmas when he knows that Christians are more likely to be off from work and available to go to the movies. If Pitt dislikes our values so much, how come his movie is being released on a day that celebrates our Christian values rather than Halloween or Gay Pride Day?" questions Hartline.
James Hartline believes that at least a million dollars can be pulled from the box office of The Curious Case of Benjamin Button if a portion of the Christians who are informed about Brad Pitt's support for the homosexual agenda refuse to attend the movie.
Hartline is also encouraging those who stay away from Brad Pitt's movie to take the price of a movie ticket, which averages $10 for an adult moviegoer, and donate that money to their local church ministry to help married couples. "We need to support the ministries that are helping married couples to cope with the many challenges facing them."
Hartline says there are many ways to honor married couples. "Another way of honoring the institution of marriage is for moviegoers to skip Brad Pitt's movie and take a married couple out to dinner. Honor those who honor marriage."
Finally, Hartline is encouraging the thousands of readers of his various internet publications to contact their respective city councils and ask them to issue a proclamation in honor of married couples. "While city councils have a history of declaring 'Gay Pride Day' in nearly every major city in America, why can't we have 'Married Couples Day?'" asks Hartline. "It seems to me that it is time to start strengthening marriages in America instead of bowing to the desires of Hollywood elites like Brad Pitt and Ellen DeGeneres."

As many of you know, I receive prophetic dreams from the Lord. Over the past ten years, I have received hundreds of such dreams. Many of those dreams have resulted in insights that have helped me to accomplish things that I could not have accomplished based upon my own abilities or education. I have seen events come to pass many times after seeing those events in dreams. And I am awaiting events to unfold based upon many prophetic dreams I have had in the past.
On October 19, 2008, I had a prophetic dream in the night. I wrote a hint of that dream on the blog for that day.
In the dream, there were two opposing forces that were in a battle. One force was far more powerful and superior than the other force. The superior force was also the bad force. The dream ended up on a baseball field where the two forces were playing a baseball game. The superior force had a big advantage and was surely going to win the baseball game that was being played.
The weaker good team had its last player up to bat in the bottom of the 9th inning. With two outs and two strikes, the batter for the weaker team had one more swing at the ball. There were two players on base, one on first, one on second. The weaker team was behind by one run. The batter hits the ball and the runners begin to run the bases. One run scores and the second runner cross third base and pauses for a brief moment trying to determine whether they should go for home and score the winning run.
After a slight hesitation, the runner starts to head for home. The ball is thrown towards home to throw the runner out, but the ball is thrown poorly, an unforced error is made and the runner touches home plate, scoring the winning run. The weaker good force had defeated the bad, but far superior team.
When I woke up from this dream, I immediately knew that this dream was related to the upcoming Nov. 4th election, but I was not quite sure how.
Is it possible that the error that was committed in this game, was the error being committed by the Democratic Party by not reviewing the actual citizenship of Barack Obama? Is it possible that the election of Barack Obama will be overturned and he is defeated because of this terrible error and oversight regarding his citizenship?
The United States Constitution is very clear. A presidential candidate must be born in the United States. I am not sure why the Republican Party did not challenge Obama's candidacy based upon his ineligibility due to him not being a natural born U. S. citizen. I would guess that the reason they did not is because they believed that any Republican would beat a black Democratic candidate, thus they did not challenge his candidacy. They did not expect Obama could win, thus they wanted him to be the Democratic candidate rather than Hillary Clinton.
According to many news sources, the current lawsuits being filed before the U. S. Supreme Court challenging Barack Obama's eligibility are very strong cases. There seems to be very legitimate concerns as to whether Obama was ever born in America. His relatives are from Africa and still living there. He was educated in Indonesia as a boy. And he made a strange trip to Hawaii under the pretense of meeting his very ill grandmother during the election. Some are saying that he attempted to deal with the issue of his birthplace while in Hawaii by acquiring a birth certificate from that state. Others have stated that the ailing grandmother publicly claimed before she passed away that Obama was not born in Hawaii. Whatever the facts end up being, there is one glaring fact above all others: Barack Obama has never supplied a verifiably legitimate birth certificate demonstrating he was born in America. The one that was displayed in public has now been repudiated as a fake.
With a history of being involved with very shady individuals, including a convicted terrorist, a convicted financial schemer by the name of Tony Rezko, the racist pastor Jeremiah Wright, the intimate relationships with Acorn officials and many others, attempting to obtain a replacement birth certificate to fulfill "the dream" is certainly possible.
Now, the interpretation of the dream I had may have nothing to do with this issue. However, there will be an error made of significant national importance and this might be the instance that such an error plays out.

New York Daily News reports:
Wal-Mart Worker Killed in Black Friday Stampede
(Newser) – Black Friday bargain hunters trampled an employee to death this morning at a Long Island Wal-Mart, the New York Daily News reports. Another woman had a miscarriage in the stampede. The unidentified employee had been trying to hold the unruly crowd back, but the crowd knocked him down and ran over him, eyewitnesses say. Police are investigating.
“He was bum-rushed by 200 people,” said a co-worker. “They took the doors off the hinges. He was trampled and killed in front of me.” A few feet away, a shopper saw a woman knocked to the ground, and heard her tell paramedics she was pregnant. “There’s nothing we can do,” they said. “The baby is gone.” Police soon shut down the store.
My Viewpoint and Yours?
I feel so saddened by the death of the Wal-Mart employee. This worker was surely not making much money on his job as a greeter at Wal-Mart. Yet, the job surely meant the world to this now-deceased employee because it provided him with a means to pay the bills, to have a bed to sleep on at night, to put some food on the table. Everyday that this worker would get up and go to work, he would put a smile on his face and welcome the massive number of shoppers who have helped to make giant retailer Wal-Mart an all-consuming corporate monster.
This worker wasn't asking for that much in this world. And what he received in exchange for his offer of providing a smiling face at the front doors of this Long Island, New York Wal-Mart was a death sentence. This worker's life was executed by those who are consumed with purchasing the latest trinkets shipped to Wal-Mart from the slave factories of Communist China.
According to Newsday reporters JOSEPH MALLIA and JONATHAN STARKEY, a shopper by the name of Kimberly Cribbs said that rumors circulated among the other shoppers that someone had been badly injured, but the shoppers ignored the Wal-Mart workers' requests that they stop shopping and move to the front of the store and exit.
"They kept shopping. It's not right. They're savages," Cribbs said.
The worker was knocked down at 5:03 a.m. at the Green Acres Mall store, and was taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 6:03 a.m.
One police officer told Newsday the prelude to the death was "a mob scene." The man who died was a temporary, part-time Wal-Mart worker, the officer said.
Wal-Mart Creates An Environment Where Greedy Shoppers Can Feed Their Carnal Desire For More Junk
The purpose of Christmas is to set aside one day out of the year to acknowledge the birth of the Savior of all mankind: Jesus Christ. Because gifts were given to the impoverished parents of Jesus so that they could care for the infant messiah, it has become a historic tradition in some Christian homes of giving gifts to others as a way of honoring the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
For those who have infected this time-honored day of remembering the birth of the eternal savior with a westernized drive for material gain, Christmas has become nothing more than a day to increase corporate profits and a day to manipulate the psychological needs of depressed consumers, thus saddling the average American with catastrophic consumer debt.
Added to this disgraceful dishonoring of the birth of the Lord Jesus Christ is the cold, harsh reality of millions of materialistic parents who have completely forgotten how to give the one gift to their children that children so desperately desire. The one gift that children want -- and so desperately need -- is for the parents to spend consistent, quality time with their own sons and daughters.
Instead of spending more time with the children, the parents are out in this increasingly immoral world indulging their flesh, buying more cars, more houses, more jewelry, more entertainment and, even worse, often acting more childish and irresponsible then their own children do.
According to New York Daily News: Before police shut down the Wal-Mart store because of the injured worker, eager shoppers streamed past emergency crews as they worked furiously to save the store clerk's life. "They were working on him, but you could see he was dead, said Halcyon Alexander, 29. "People were still coming through."
Only a few stopped.
And Wal-Mart is right in the middle of the mess that these parents are making of the American culture, with their manipulative marketing strategies to ensure that stores are full of frenzied shoppers driven to get whatever bargain is being hyped by the marketeers and profiteers that make up Wal-Mart's experimental retail laboratories.
2,000 years ago, Jesus predicted it would be this way in the last days right before His return to the earth
Jesus said these prophetic words in the Gospel of Matthew: "For the coming of the Son of Man will be just like the days of Noah. For as it was in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark, and they did not understand until the flood came and took them all away;
so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. Matthew 24:37-39
Madness is gripping the spirit of the American culture. This drive to get more "things" - and to indulge the carnal flesh - is destroying the very fabric that once made America the great nation that she is. The flesh is never, ever satisfied. Thus, the average American consumer, void of a right relationship with God, keeps trying to feed the flesh by buying more "stuff" and having more sexual relationships, or making more money, or getting bigger homes, newer cars, the latest electronic gadgets.
The Bible instructs all of us that this flesh can never be satisfied. The pursuit of fulfilling the flesh will eventually consume those who are living a life in which the flesh is the central focal point of one's existence. The event at Wal-Mart, where an innocent and hardworking man was trampled over by a stampede of raging consumers, proves that the Bible is absolutely correct in its description of the human condition.
What were these adult consumers doing standing in line for hours and hours at Wal-Mart? Who was watching their kids at home during the dark hours of the night as these shoppers waited in line? Were they praying to God about the real meaning of Christmas? As the consumers waiting in line stared with glazed-over eyes at the locked front doors of the Wal-Mart store, did any one of them think about the Christians in Sudan who would be brutally killed today by Islamic radicals?
While these worshippers of Wal-Mart prepared to break down the store's front doors and trample over the employee greeter, and as they fantasized about filling up their shopping carts with DVDs, cosmetics, cell phones, televisions, three and four pairs of new shoes, and anything else recommended by Oprah Winfrey, did any of them think about the scores of Indian citizens who, in the last 48 hours, had been exterminated during the massive terrorists attacks in the city of Mumbai (formerly known as Bombay)?
The Bible has given us ample warnings to be on our guard and to be prepared for the eminent return of the Lord Jesus Christ. Those who own Wal-Mart and are making their billions of dollars in profits off of products made in the heinous slave factories of Communist China will one day be held accountable by God. God is watching everything that is happening. He is well aware that Wal-Mart sells billions of dollars in goods every year that are made in China, while atheistic Chinese leaders imprison and torture Chinese Christians for merely possessing Bibles or holding church services in their little homes.
The Bible says, "For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world and forfeits his soul? Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul?" No amount of money can buy you access to heaven.
So many in America learned nothing from the tragedies of Sept. 11, 2001. If the owners of Wal-Mart continue to make billions of dollars off of the products made in a nation where Chinese Christians are tortured and imprisoned for merely owning Bibles or preaching the Gospel, what does that really say about Wal-Mart? And what have these American consumers learned since Sept. 11, 2001, if they are willing to murder a Wal-Mart employee in their all-consuming drive to be first in line to purchase goods made in the damnable factories of Communist China?
My God! My God! What have we become?

Fredericks of Hollywood Removes Adult-Themed Advertising After Christian Activist James Hartline Threatens to Lead A Major Boycott Against Westfield Mission Valley Shopping Mall in San Diego
(JHReport) Even before a single shot was fired, a San Diego Christian activist is now declaring victory in what was about to become a major battle in Southern California's culture war. Yesterday, James Hartline, publisher of California Christian News and the James Hartline Report, was preparing to ask his 50,000 national readers and supporters to take action against Fredericks of Hollywood, an adult-themed retailer, and Westfield Mission Valley, a massive shopping mall in the Mission Valley area of San Diego, California. Hartline contends that Fredericks of Hollywood was displaying signage on the pedestrian walkway outside of its Mission Valley store that featured a woman without any clothing on except for a very skimpy pair of panties. Photographs of the woman showed that her buttocks was almost completely uncovered in the advertisement.
Hartline also notes that the Fredericks of Hollywood store is located directly across from Tilt, a children's and teen gaming arcade in the Westfield Mission Valley shopping mall. Last week, Hartline attempted to speak with the manager of Fredericks of Hollywood about the inappropriate signage outside of her store. "She was so disrespectful to me. She refused to speak with me or take my business card. She was very nasty and clearly, she couldn't have cared less about how her advertising degraded women and affected minors" says Hartline.
After being rebuffed by the manager of Fredericks, Hartline contacted the management of Westfield. For seven days, Hartline did not hear from Westfield, nor was the signage removed from the outside walkway in front of Fredericks. Hartline then contacted the corporate headquarters for the Tilt arcade and notified them that there was inappropriate adult-themed advertising on the sidewalk directly across from its youth-oriented arcade. Hartline also began to lay the groundwork for a major boycott against Westfield if action was not taken against Fredericks.
Tuesday, Nov. 18th, was D-Day for Hartline and the beginning of a 24 hour countdown to the launch of a boycott against Westfield. Hartline estimates that a Christian-based boycott against Westfield would have cost the shopping mall at least $1 million during the Christmas season. In an attempt to negotiate a pre-boycott resolution, Hartline placed one last telephone call to the Westfield management office on Tuesday afternoon to see if they were going to respond to his complaint about Fredericks of Hollywood and their adult-themed advertisements.
"The manager of the Westfield mall started to give me the runaround when I called her this one final time," says Hartline. "She tried to tell me that she didn't have the authority to remove the sign. I told her that if that sign was still on the sidewalk on Tuesday night, then I was going to initiate a boycott against Westfield Mission Valley Shopping Mall. That was the end of the discussion."
When it comes to protecting kids in the city of San Diego, James Hartline is all business. In the past five years, Hartline has been involved in the shuttering of ten pornographic businesses in the city of San Diego. Included among the businesses that Hartline has successfully shut down after filing complaints with the City of San Diego code enforcement office is a gay bathhouse located in San Diego's homosexual community. Hartline also successfully shut down Rainbow Road, a gay porn store that was operating across from an elementary school in the heart of Hillcrest, a San Diego homosexual neighborhood.
Tuesday night, Hartline and his camera went to the Mission Valley shopping mall to evaluate the progress of his stand against Fredericks of Hollywood. Tuesday has now come and gone and Hartline says that a boycott of the Westfield mall will not be necessary. The adult-themed advertisement has now been removed. For his part, James Hartline is happy that he has been able to give the families of San Diego an early Christmas present. For the average Christian in America who is concerned about the rapidly eroding moral conditions in their country, James Hartline is demonstrating that one person, dedicated to a cause greater then himself, can bring about change for the better in this nation.
James Hartline is concerned about the continual worsening of adult advertising at local shopping malls in his city. "Victoria's Secret, Fredericks of Hollywood and Abercrombie & Fitch are just a few of the retailers in shopping malls that are displaying offensive and explicit advertising," says Hartline. "These stores could not care less about the fact that impressionable kids are in the malls with their moms and dads. In fact, these stores seem to be intentionally taking aim at young kids just to sexualize them," he adds.
"Why do stores need to display gigantic pictures of nearly naked women, if they are clothing stores," questions Hartline.
Hartline warns that he is just getting started in a new campaign to clean up the shopping malls of San Diego. "We are going to make a stand for the kids of San Diego. That means if these shopping malls want the money of the two million Christians in San Diego County, then they had better start cleaning up their advertisements. The line is being drawn and these retailers better get ready because we are going to restore morality in our city," declares James Hartline.

Play Video Video: Zawahiri warns 'house negro' Obama AFP
CAIRO, Egypt – Al-Qaida's No. 2 leader used a racial epithet to insult Barack Obama in a message posted Wednesday, describing the president-elect in demeaning terms that imply he does the bidding of whites.
The message appeared chiefly aimed at persuading Muslims and Arabs that Obama does not represent a change in U.S. policies. Ayman al-Zawahri said in the message, which appeared on militant Web sites, that Obama is "the direct opposite of honorable black Americans" like Malcolm X, the 1960s African-American rights leader.
In al-Qaida's first response to Obama's victory, al-Zawahri also called the president-elect — along with secretaries of state Colin Powell and Condoleezza Rice — "house Negroes."
Speaking in Arabic, al-Zawahri uses the term "abeed al-beit," which literally translates as "house slaves." But al-Qaida supplied English subtitles of his speech that included the translation as "house Negroes."
The message also includes old footage of speeches by Malcolm X in which he explains the term, saying black slaves who worked in their white masters' house were more servile than those who worked in the fields. Malcolm X used the term to criticize black leaders he accused of not standing up to whites.
In Washington, State Department spokesman Sean McCormack said the latest message was just "more despicable comments from a terrorist."
The 11-minute 23-second video features the audio message by al-Zawahri, who appears only in a still image, along with other images, including one of Obama wearing a Jewish skullcap as he meets with Jewish leaders. In his speech, al-Zawahri refers to a Nov. 5 U.S. airstrike attack in Afghanistan, meaning the video was made after that date.
Al-Zawahri said Obama's election has not changed American policies he said are aimed at oppressing Muslims and others.
"America has put on a new face, but its heart full of hate, mind drowning in greed, and spirit which spreads evil, murder, repression and despotism continue to be the same as always," the deputy of al-Qaida chief Osama bin Laden said.
He said Obama's plan to shift troops to Afghanistan is doomed to failure, because Afghans will resist.
"Be aware that the dogs of Afghanistan have found the flesh of your soldiers to be delicious, so send thousands after thousands to them," he said.
Al-Zawahri did not threaten specific attacks, but warned Obama that he was "facing a Jihadi (holy war) awakening and renaissance which is shaking the pillars of the entire Islamic world; and this is the fact which you and your government and country refuse to recognize and pretend not to see."
He said Obama's victory showed Americans acknowledged that President George W. Bush's policies were a failure and that the result was an "admission of defeat in Iraq."
But Obama's professions of support for Israel during the election campaign "confirmed to the Ummah (Islamic world) that you have chosen a stance of hostility to Islam and Muslims," al-Zawahri said.

Watch This Shocking Video of homosexual activists on the streets of San Francisco as they engage in some of the most vile and hateful actions against peaceful, young students from the Justice House of Prayer:
The truth is finally coming out: The homosexual movement has always been based upon big lies. They have not been discriminated against. They are not denied rights. What they are, is one of the most anti-American, anti-christian socialist movements in the world. And they are on the streets of America abusing Christians, assaulting seniors, threatening religious groups.
Never forget this video that you have seen when they come around demanding special rights and the right to dismantle the institution of marriage to accomodate their hatred and their bigotry.
California Be Warned! Never, ever allow these people to fool you again! They are the oppressors and they are trying to take your freedoms away from you.
And we shall Defy Their Lies!
The San Diego Gay and Lesbian Center, officially known as "The Center" was built on taxpayer funds. The property currently being used by The Center was obtained with public grants (tax dollars). These grants were given under the pretense that The Center would be engaged in counselling and the prevention of AIDS. Millions of dollars have been given to The Center each year for HIV prevention and other related services. It is this money that keeps the lights on in this place. It is these funds that pay for many staff who work for The Center. At no time are these taxpayer funded services to be used for political purposes, ie. the Prop. 8 battle.
The question to be answered is this: Has the taxpayer funded San Diego Gay and Lesbian Center violated the use of this government funded property by engaging in political activities? The Center has established a separate 501(c)4 for political purposes. However, were those activities under this 501(c)4 title progressed with property that was paid for by government funds.
Here is a copy of The Center Advocacy Project which pushed forth the gay marriage battle in San Diego for the homosexual community. You will note that the address and the telephone number of this project is the same contact information as the government-funded The Center. When government funds are paying for a property that property CANNOT be used for political purposes at any time.
Information on how this project under the The Center was detailed as working to defeat Prop 8 in the following article here:
This article states: The fight against Proposition 8 is just one example of how The Center benefits San Diego and California's LGBT community.
You will notice how this press statement from The Center Advocacy Project CAREFULLY attempts to differentiate itself from its 501(c)3 program because they know that to mix the two is illegal. However, it is clear that tax dollars pay for the property that The Center is using to engage in the political activities of its newly established 501(c)4 project. If any resources, from utilities to furniture, from staff or property, that were originally paid for by the government, was used for the purposes of fighting Prop. 8 under the guise of the 501(c)4 project, that is a violation of the law and will be cause for The Center to forfeit its charity status.
Again, this goes to the heart of these radical homosexual activists claiming that the churches, who are 501(c)3 charities, but did not use government funding, were wrong for being involved in the Prop. 8 battle, while government-funded gay centers are not a problem to these homosexual activists, is true hypocrisy as its worse.

Due to her insider trading offenses she spent a little while in the slammer and suffered a real death blow to her reputation and lifestyle. She learned some important life lessons along the way and has now regained her composure as well.
Now, along comes Mark Cuban, the billionaire spoiled owner of the Dallas Mavericks. Today, federal regulators charged Cuban with much more serious insider trading crimes than those committed by Martha Stewart.
The question is will Mark Cuban be treated in the same fashion as was the sophisticated matriarch of the kitchen Martha Stewart? History has shown us that these wealthy men get off with more diminished consequences for the criminal actions than do their poorer counterparts. Stewart was charged in the midst of a storm of criminal allegations among a multitude of corporate giants, thus, her convictions and incarceration were more about setting an example than the actual need to incarcerate her.
Will billionaire Mark Cuban go to the slammer in the same fashion as Martha Stewart?
What do you think?
Here is the latest on this strange tale of greed among the elites:
SEC charges Mark Cuban with insider trading
By MARCY GORDON, AP Business Writer
WASHINGTON – Federal regulators on Monday charged Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban with insider trading for allegedly using confidential information on a stock sale to avoid more than $750,000 in losses.
Cuban disputed the allegations by the Securities and Exchange Commission and said he would contest them.
The SEC filed a civil lawsuit against Cuban in federal court in Dallas. The agency alleged that in June 2004, Cuban was invited to get in on the coming stock offering by Mamma.com Inc. after he agreed to keep the information private.
Cuban owned 6.3 percent of Mamma.com's stock at that time and was the largest known shareholder in the search engine company, according to the SEC. The agency said Cuban knew the shares would be sold below the current market price, and a few hours after receiving the information, he told his broker to sell all 600,000 shares before the public announcement of the offering.
By selling when he did, Cuban avoided losses exceeding $750,000, the SEC said in its lawsuit. Montreal-based Mamma.com changed its name to Copernic Inc. in June 2007.
"It is fundamentally unfair for someone to use access to nonpublic information to improperly gain an edge on the market," Scott Friestad, the SEC's deputy enforcement director, said in a statement. The agency alleged that Cuban acted with "scienter," a legal term indicating knowledge of wrongdoing.
The SEC is seeking a court judgment against Cuban finding that he violated the antifraud provisions of the federal securities laws, an injunction against future violations, an unspecified civil penalty and restitution of the losses Cuban allegedly avoided.
Unless he is subject to an injunction, Cuban "is likely to commit such violations again in the future," according to the SEC suit.
Cuban's attorney said in a statement that the SEC's case "has no merit and is a product of gross abuse of prosecutorial discretion."
"Mr. Cuban intends to contest the allegations and to demonstrate that the (SEC's) claims are infected by the misconduct of the staff of its enforcement division," Ralph Ferrara wrote in a note posted on Cuban's blog.
Cuban, in his own statement, said, "I am disappointed that the (SEC) chose to bring this case based upon its enforcement staff's win-at-any-cost ambitions. The staff's process was result-oriented, facts be damned. The government's claims are false and they will be proven to be so."
Cuban, 50, also owns Landmark Theaters, a large national chain dedicated to independent films, and the HDNet cable television channel.
He also runs a Web site called Sharesleuth.com, which bills itself as providing "independent Web-based reporting aimed at exposing securities fraud and corporate chicanery." An announcement on the site says there are plans for a companion, BailoutSleuth.com, to track the government's $700 financial rescue plan.
Cuban is one of the richest people in the world, according to Forbes magazine, which pegged his net worth at $2.3 billion as of March 2007.
Mamma.com decided in the spring of 2004 to raise capital in a so-called private placement in public equity offering, known as a PIPE, according to the SEC suit. In late June, as the PIPE moved toward closing, Mamma.com's investment bank suggested the company invite Cuban to participate.
On June 28, Mamma.com Chief Executive Guy Faure e-mailed Cuban asking him to call him "ASAP," the SEC said. Cuban called four minutes later from the American Airlines Center in Dallas, home of the NBA's Dallas Mavericks, and spoke to Faure for about eight minutes.
Faure, who resigned last year, began the conversation by telling Cuban he was about to give him confidential information. Cuban agreed to keep it to himself, the SEC said.
Cuban became upset and angry during the conversation, and said that he didn't like PIPEs because they dilute the value of company stock for existing shareholders, according to the SEC. At the end of the call, Cuban said, "Well now I'm screwed. I can't sell."

Each time homosexual activists attempt to force their agenda on California, there have been raging, massive, incinerating fires sweeping across the California landscape.
Today, people are running for their lives as 800 California homes have burned down and the firestorm is spreading like a nuclear holocaust. Yet, the radical homosexual anarchists rampage upon the streets of this state demanding the destruction of marriage and family, and the establishment of their socialistic dark vision for society.
You see, the problem is this: God has plans for California in the near days ahead. Thus, these attempts to force an ungodly tyranny on this state are being met blow with blow by God. God is saying, "California shall be a refuge for America when the catastrophes come. California belongs to Me, not the advocates of sexual anarchy."
The more that homosexual activists press their battle in California, the more there will be great calamaties in this state. Go ahead, challenge the Lord Thy God in this season. For I have heard the voice of the Lord say, "This state belongs to God! It is not the land of degradation and immorality anymore. I shall have My way, for this land, I created. And this land is Mine!" thus saith the Lord.
The Prophet Amos declared in the Bible:
I have overthrown some of you, as God overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah, and ye were as a firebrand plucked out of the burning: yet have ye not returned unto me, saith the LORD."
I declared a word from the Lord in the James Hartline Report before, on October 22, 2007 and they would not listen. Will they listen now:
They Would Not Listen -- And Now We Are Burning!
They shook their fists at God and said, "We don't care what God says, we will issue our legal brief to support gay marriage in San Diego!" Then Mayor Jerry Sanders mocked the Christian vote and signed off on this rebellious legal document to support same-sex marriage.
And then the streets of La Jolla under the Mt. Soledad Cross began to cave in. They shook their fists at God and said, "We don't care what the Bible says, We want the California school children indoctrinated into homosexuality!"
And then Governor Schwarzenegger signed into law the heinous SB777 which bans the use of "mom" and "dad" in the text books and promotes homosexuality to all school children in California.
And then the wildfires of Southern California engulfed the land like a raging judgment against the radicalized anti-christian California rebels.
How low will we go? Why won't they listen? Why won't they stop their madness?The Bible says that in the last days, the nations will rebel against God until He can't take it anymore.
Was it all worth it?
Were the few years of sexual immorality worth the eternal destruction and earthly chaos it brought?
How low will we go?
One notable Christian blogger recently stated that he would like to these gay marches inside of South Central Los Angeles. That would demonstrate whether the gay marches against Prop. 8 were actually legitimate. Instead such marches are focusing on the Mormon Church because it is the cowardly way of getting attention as gay activists know that the Mormons will tolerate the disrespect and hatred by gay activists whereas the black community would not be as kind.
On another front: Several legal sources have told the James Hartline Report that a number of investigations are underway regarding the possibly illegal use of a number of taxpayer funded non-profit gay centers in the recent Prop. 8 battle. Federal and state law forbids government funds from being used for political activities. A number of gay centers in California, particularly in Los Angeles, San Francisco and San Diego played extensive roles in the Prop. 8 campaign.
The San Diego Gay and Lesbian Center is funded by the taxpayers. Their property is paid for by grants from the taxpayers. Yet, according to many sources, the Gay and Lesbian Center rented out office space for the marriage battle. The question for investigators will focus on the issues such as the actual property being paid for by tax dollars and then that same property engaging in political activities.
If government resources were directly or indirectly used to fight Prop. 8 that will be a very big legal problem for these California gay centers. As to gay activists pointing to churches playing roles in Prop. 8, there is plenty of hypocrisy surrounding such complaints when it is the gay centers, funded with tax dollars, that were used for Prop. 8 activities. And churches did not use government funds for political purposes. Current law allows non-profits to use 5% of their contributions for initiative campaigns. However, government funds can never be used for such activities.
Send us a tip if you have evidence that taxpayer funded gay centers were used for political purposes in the recent Prop. 8 battle. Investigators would love to talk with you and you could provide a patriotic service to your fellow American taxpayers!

Sources have told the James Hartline Report that fear and intimidation are the first steps in a well thought out plan to overturn Prop. 8. The goal is to intimidate and discourage the same groups who supported Prop. 8 from giving money to fight a future initiative to reverse Prop. 8. That is why there is such an aggressive campaign of hate and hostility being directed at Mormons. To dissuade Mormons from giving millions of dollars in the future will be a big step towards homosexual activists in making sure that any campaign to resist their efforts to reverse Prop. 8 does not receive near the $40 million that the Yes on 8 campaign received this year.
The protests and threats that were directed towards Doug Manchester and the Manchester
Hyatt was a test run towards pressuring him not to give any further money. Manchester went on to give no further money after he was boycotted.
The plan also stresses concern over the current economic downturn and fears that gays will not have extra funds to contribute to an initiative to reverse Prop. 8. Keeping a financial balance in the effort to reverse Prop. 8 is a critical point of concern one source told the James Hartline Report.
Other sources have told the James Hartline Report that groups for Prop. 8 are already creating a major game plan themselves to counter a reversal of Prop. 8, as well as expanding on the public support for Prop. 8.
Current attacks against Prop. 8, particularly the violence and threats against churchgoers and seniors by angry homosexual activists and their leftist allies, have created a big backlash against
the gay community and its drive to undermine the constitutionally and legally binding Prop. 8 amendment.
LOS ANGELES – Letters containing a suspicious white powder were sent Thursday to Mormon temples in Los Angeles and Salt Lake City that were the sites of protests against the church's support of California's gay marriage ban.
The temple in the Westwood area of Los Angeles was evacuated before a hazardous materials crew determined the envelope's contents were not toxic, said FBI spokesman Jason Pack.
The temple in downtown Salt Lake City, where the church is based, received a similar envelope containing a white powder that spilled onto a clerk's hand.
The room was decontaminated and the envelope taken by the FBI for testing. The clerk showed no signs of illness, but the scare shut down a building at Temple Square for more than an hour, said Scott Freitag, a spokesman for the Salt Lake City Fire Department.
None of the writing on the envelope was threatening, and the church received no calls or messages related to the package, Freitag said.
Protests in recent days have targeted the Mormon church, which encouraged its members to fight the recently passed amendment banning gay marriage in California.
Authorities are looking into several theories on who sent the letters and why, Pack said.
Anthrax mailed as a white powder to Washington lawmakers and media outlets killed five people and sickened 17 just weeks after the attacks of September 11, 2001. Periodic hoaxes modeled on the anthrax mailings have popped up since then but usually prove harmless.

Media contact: Tom Hoefling Chairman, America's Independent Party National Committee
Chairman, Alan Keyes for President 2008
Presidential candidate Alan Keyes, AIP leaders sue in CA court to obtain Obama citizenship proof, stop Secretary of State from certifying Electors
Fenton, MI – November 14, 2008
Presidential candidate Alan Keyes, vice-presidential candidate Wiley S. Drake, and the Chairman of the American Independent Party, Markham Robinson, have filed suit in California Superior Court in Sacramento seeking to bar Secretary of State Debra Bowen from certifying to Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger the names of Electors, and from transmitting to each presidential Elector a Certificate of Election, until documentary proof is produced and verified showing that Senator Obama is a “natural born” citizen of the United States, and does not hold citizenship of Indonesia, Kenya or Great Britain.
In addition, they have asked that the court issue a peremptory writ barring Senator Obama’s California Electors from signing the Certificate of Vote until such documentary proof is produced and verified.
In response to questions about why the suit was being filed, Ambassador Alan Keyes commented, “I and others are concerned that this issue be properly investigated and decided before Senator Obama takes office. Otherwise there will be a serious doubt as to the legitimacy of his tenure. This doubt would also affect the respect people have for the Constitution as the supreme law of the land. I hope the issue can be quickly clarified so that the new President can take office under no shadow of doubt. This will be good for him and for the nation.”
Former Reagan administration official Ambassador Alan Keyes and Wiley S. Drake were the 2008 presidential and vice-presidential nominees of the American Independent Party, which is the California affiliate of the new national America’s Independent Party.
Mission Viejo, California attorney Dr. Orly Taitz and United States Justice Foundation Executive Director Gary Kreep are representing the plaintiffs in this case.
Copies of the court filing, along with further information concerning developments in this case, will be made available at www.AIPNEWS.com, or can be obtained by contacting AIP national chairman Tom Hoefling.
QUESTION? What do you think should happen if Barack Obama is found to be in violation of the U. S. Constitution regarding the requirement that all U. S. presidential candidates must be naturally born U. S. citizens?
Last Friday evening, homosexual activists and their supporters gathered at the Palm Springs City Hall, protesting voter approved Prop. 8, which defines marriage as between a man and a woman. Phyllis Burgess went to the rally, and carried a Styrofoam cross through the crowd. As ABC affiliate KESQ-TV carried that rally live, homosexuals surrounded the 69-year-old woman, began pushing her, reportedly spit on her, and grabbed the cross from her arms and threw it on the ground. (See video report) Burgess remained calm throughout the melee. "I was really so overflowing with peacefulness in my heart that I just couldn't see this," she says. "It wasn't in my mind, it really wasn't."
Initially, Burgess said she did not want to file charges, but changed her mind after authorities encouraged her to do so (see related video). She says she went to the rally "just to get my remarks across at my city hall, where I have lived for 30 years." She adds: "If it takes endangerment, should that stop me? I'm a senior -- we respect elder abuse in this city." Police are reviewing video in hopes of identifying suspects. Charges would be assault and vandalism, both misdemeanors.
If this had been a citizen who had gone and torn down a rainbow flag off of a gay center, then the homosexuals would have been screaming for justice. Why aren't they demanding justice for this woman who was denied her right free religious expression in America, as well as the fact that they brutally suppressed her right to free speech as she was carrying the cross?
We will see more acts of violence and hypocrisy from the "tolerant" crowd in the days ahead. And the result will be a dramatic turning of public opinion against the radical homosexual political agenda.
The so-called oppressed are now the neighborhood bullies. Yet, we always knew that was the case.

Preparing For My Departure
But Running My Race Until I Leave!
My Journey From The Gutter To God
A Chapter From The Journal of James Hartline:
Gaining Life By Overcoming Death Through Jesus Christ
"It is better to be a poor but wise young man than to be an old and foolish king who refuses all advice. For that young man has come out of prison to become king, even though he was born poor in his kingdom." Ecclesiastes 4:13-14
God has granted me the privilege of prophetically looking into the mighty vision that He is in the process of establishing for this generation. In this vision for our nation, I have seen the coming glory of God which shall envelope and transform America. Ironically, this vision shall be carried forth by those who are deemed to be the least desirable citizens in our nation. Vindication is coming swiftly for those who have been judged as unimportant and socially defective by those who are considered important because of their wealth, their social standing and their ability to show disdain for the things of God.
Indeed, the Lord presents us a prophetic revelation in the fourth chapter of the Book of Ecclesiastes which confirms His intention of reversing America's social order during this coming move of God. The writer in Ecclesiastes declares, "Out of the prison shall come a young man who will be king." This nation shall soon find itself in its darkest hour, an hour when money cannot buy a calming of the mind or a healing balm for the terrified heart. When the rich and greedy least expect it, God will release a new kind of leadership upon this great and burdened country. Out of the prison shall come a king. Out of the wasteland shall come the warrior. Out of the abused shall come royalty. Out of the raped shall come the beautiful. Out of the fires of affliction shall come forth the purified servants of the Most High God. This is the way of the Lord.
I have been told by those in power within our morally-neutered southern California society, that I have no value and that I don't qualify to speak on behalf of my generation. However, according to my own experiences as a determined soldier in this culture war, the powerful ruling bureaucrats in this society have no say in the matter of my involvement in this culture war that God has asked me to wage. I did not seek permission from the powerful when I began my campaign that has now successfully closed ten pornographic businesses in the city of San Diego. One of those evil businesses that I fought a four year battle to close, was a gay bathhouse located in the heart of San Diego's homosexual community where many men used illegal drugs and were infected with the AIDS virus. During that long and trying battle, I received many threats against my life. Still, I did not give up and now that business has been permanently shut down.
Nor did I wait for a permission slip to be granted me from some city council when I motivated hundreds of my fellow citizens to go to war to keep the giant public cross that sits atop the Mt. Soledad Veterans War Memorial from being torn down. For two decades, atheists with the help of their discriminatory attorneys sought to tear down that cross. Any observer who was present during those long and exhausting city council meetings, will tell you that my passionate pleas to uphold our religious rights were among the most vocal and sincere of any that were sounded in the city council chambers. You can watch my life and death speech to preserve the Mt. Soledad Cross by going to the city council video archives for March 8, 2005. First click Video for that date and then click on the segment "Break Return" and slide the time ruler to 44:00.
I also did not seek affirmation from the homosexual power brokers in San Diego when I began seeking justice in our city during my battle over the multitude of sex offenders and pedophiles who were working for the San Diego Gay Pride organization in 2005. After a lengthy investigation that year, I discovered that the San Diego Gay Pride organization was allowing dangerous sex offenders to work in their annual festival and parade, events that lure in hundreds of young minors each year. Despite many threats against me because of my investigation on this matter, I stayed the course and the sex offenders were subsequently forced out of the events where they had the potential to harm the youth of my city.
When history is recorded and our generation is chronicled, it is my greatest hope that I will be listed among those who fought bravely and died courageously for the children of my generation.
There is no day upon which the sun arises, that I do not scheme or plot to make my community safer for the little boys and little girls who will rise from their beds to face their many scandalous enemies. I know what it is like to grow up and to be held captive by an abuser. As a young boy, I was all too familiar with the dreary days that turned into neverending months, and those neverending months that turned into hopeless years, and no one, absolutely no one, came to my rescue. I have known a time as a small, four year-old boy, when I was beaten so badly that I needed stitches in my skull. I also know of a day, just six years after that earlier violent and physically damaging episode, when I, as a ten year-old terrified little boy, received so many punches to my head that I was taken back to the hospital to get more stitches.
I know the fear and pain of not having a single friend to run to when I was under the care of a mother who I trusted with all of my youthful innocence, only to find out that the one I trusted ended up being my greatest enemy. Let there be no doubt among those in our culture who are bent on contaminating and corrupting the youth of America, that I have made a vow to the children of my generation, a vow which declares that as long as there is breath in my body, I will fight for America's children. I will be their best friend.
Let America also understand that I will be a deliverer for the abused children of this nation. At every turn when I become aware that adults are attempting to hurt the kids of San Diego, I rise up to stand in the way. In 2005, when I found out that adult nudists were exposing young kids to their perversions at nudist parties in San Diego, I created a national outcry which culminated in the elimination of their use of the public venues which they had been using to hold their filthy parties.
In June of 2007, I learned that the the San Diego Gay Pride organization was scheduled to hold a gay pride celebration in July at Petco Park, home of the San Diego Padres, at the same time that the Padres had scheduled a children's free floppy cap giveaway. With a history of hiring pedophiles and promoting pornography, the San Diego Gay Pride organization is one of the most dangerous groups when it comes to the issue of involving children in their events. One month after I released a nationally-recognized article on the controversy, over 100 Christians showed up to stand with me at the baseball park as we alerted parents about the dark history of the San Diego Gay Pride organization.
In 2005, my nationally-recognized investigation of the San Diego Gay Pride organization led to shocking revelations that the group was hiring sex offenders to work in events that involved scores of very young children and teenagers. The citizens of San Diego were particularly outraged when it was discovered that the group had also hired a registered pedophile named "Marty the Clown" to entertain children in the gay pride children's garden.
Incensed at the San Diego Gay Pride organization's depth of corruption towards impressionable minors, I refused back down from the war that I intended to wage in the city of San Diego unless justice was brought to bear on this abominable situation. When the smoke had cleared, and I had waged my war, all of the sex offenders had been removed from the organization despite weeks of refusal by the Gay Pride organization to remove them. Additionally, as a result of my stand against the gay pride organization and its hiring of sex offenders, the City of San Diego, for the first time in eleven years, refused to issue an annual proclamation honoring the San Diego Gay Pride celebration. Nowhere in America have Christian Evangelicals achieved such a victory as that which was won by our side in 2005. This is evidence which confirms the Bible's declaration that when a man or woman commits themselves to the Lord Jesus Christ, there will be heaven-sent signs to follow. This again, is the way of the Lord.
There is a price to pay for the stand I am making on behalf of the youth of my generation. I have been the target of many death threats by atheists and homosexual activists who despise my work of exposing those who seek to harm our little boys and our little girls.
Before we enter into a permanent agreement to serve God for the rest of our lives, Jesus presents all of us with the full consequences for following Him and the mandate He has for this generation. I fully understood what Jesus was declaring when He said, "And whosoever doth not bear his cross, and come after Me, cannot be My disciple. For which of you, intending to build a tower, does not first sit down, and count the cost, as to whether you will be able to finish it?" I was fearful, and apprehensive as well, when I considered what Jesus said about the life ahead for the Apostle Paul once he had been subjected to the transforming power of the Holy Spirit: "For I will shew him how great things he must suffer for My name's sake."
Knowing that I would be hated by homosexual activists for standing up to the terrible things they were doing to the kids of my city, I made a sober decision that the lives of the children of San Diego far outweighed the concern I might have felt for my own personal comfort. As long as God grants me life, the children of my generation will not be abandoned in the same horrible fashion that I was as a young boy.
This nation and the children that live in it are in need of a precedent-setting miracle. According to the prophetic visions which I have received from the Lord, God is about to bring about a comprehensive and consuming change in the leadership of this nation. It will be the kind of change that creates a nation which honors the presence of our youth. However, this kind of monumental change will not come about by the same broken means which have produced such dangerous times for my generation.
As we have seen by the Biblical examples of Joseph, who God rescued from the dungeon to lead the entire nation of Egypt, and by the beautiful sacrifice of Queen Esther, who came from slavery and obscurity to rescue the lives of the entire Jewish race, God raises up royalty out of life's most unbearable circumstances.
Then Pharaoh sent and called for Joseph, and they hurriedly brought him out of the dungeon; and when he had shaved himself and changed his clothes, he came to Pharaoh. So Pharaoh said to Joseph, "Since God has informed you of all this, there is no one so discerning and wise as you are. You shall be over my house. See, I have set you over all the land of Egypt." Genesis Chapter 41
"And the king loved Esther above all the women, and she obtained grace and favour in his sight more than all the virgins; so that he set the royal crown upon her head, and made her queen. However, the King did not know that Esther was a Jew. Mordecai, who adopted the orphan Esther, said to her, "And who knows whether you have not attained royalty for such a time as this?" Book of Esther
One significant thing that I have learned during this long and dangerous journey of mine, is that God's ways of dealing with the affairs of mankind are nearly always opposite to that of the way that men in their fallen state deal with each other. God's priorities are not man's priorities. Men will rarely ever make God's desires a part of their human agenda until men learn to subject themselves to a spiritual metamorphosis.
The Bible teaches us that the farther down a man has fallen in this life, the more likely it is when that man repents and is forgiven of his many sins, that he will go on to become a leader who God can raise up to influence his generation towards greatness. When reflecting upon the gratitude demonstrated by the prostitute whom He had forgiven, Jesus told His disciples, "Therefore I say to you, her sins, which are many, are forgiven, for she loved much. But to whom little is forgiven, the same loves little." Like the prostitute that Jesus helped, I have been a deplorable sinner in need of God's forgiveneness. Because Christ has loved me and forgiven me much, just as He did that prostitute 2,000 years ago, I owe Him everything. This is why I am so obedient to His every demand. This is why I am so dedicated to His concern for the children of my generation.
As He was moving ever closer to His voluntary execution for the sins of all humanity, Jesus declared to His followers the significant responsibilities that will be given to the man who has been faithful with the graceful new life granted to him by the Lord, "Blessed is that servant whom his master finds so doing when he comes. Truly I say to you that he will put him in charge of all his possessions."
The man who has learned life's most difficult lessons through hardships and trials will be a humble man who knows passionately the Biblical passage which declares, "I know that nothing good lives in my flesh, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out." Yet, when filled with the very Spirit of the living God, that same man can state with a peculiar and profound confidence, "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me."
There are no losses or defeats for the citizen who resides in the Kingdom of God. Only in this carnal world are the rich and powerful allowed to judge men and women as losers based upon the amount of money they possess or the scholastic degrees which have been granted them by a college where the existence of God is quite likely to be denied. The great irony in all of this is the fact that the rich and famous are empowering a world that seeks to sexualize and harm our children, while a person like myself, empowered with only a high school diploma, is doing everything possible to protect the children of my generation from the exploitations of the rich and famous.
Throughout history, there are some men and women who are born with lives that grant them great suffering from the very moment they draw their first breaths. There is a scheme of God in His allowing these individuals to suffer in such a manner. I am one who has been chosen by God to be a part of this suffering breed. I have always known suffering. It is as familiar to me as the moon is to the night. For those who have been chosen by God to lead the way during humanity's darkest hours, the human experience often begins in rancid poverty and eventually ends with hushed groanings among the underprivileged.
Joseph was our forerunner for establishing God's pattern of taking a young man plagued all of his life by injustices and discrimination, and then transforming that young man into the leader of a very desperate nation. In every generation, there is a Joseph who is being groomed by God for a season when fear and catastrophe come together to create a national crisis. This tried and tested servant of humanity will always be an independent flame, a flame fueled by the very fires of God Himself.
In the hours of my greatest despondency, I always felt this unshakable kinship with Joseph. It is the many years of great suffering that I endured which drew me to learn of Joseph's godly way of dealing with his own horrific tribulations. It has been my apprehending of how God uses suffering to mold a man into the image of Christ, that finally allowed me to come to a place of comprehending what Jesus meant when He said, "For many are called, but few are chosen."
Many years ago, in what seemed to be another lifetime altogether, I came to my senses and realized that I was rotting away in a gutter. Lost in a life that homosexual leaders had promised me would be a gay life full of happiness and acceptance, I now found myself strung out on crystal meth. Covered in my own fecal matter and vomit, the gay life had brought me to such a shameful place that I was using my own dirty garments as a covering from the probing eyes of a God who was desperately searching for me, His lost little lamb, before it was too late.
It was during the latter years of my dreadful thirty-year experiment called the gay lifestyle, that I finally came to a permanent realization that homosexuality and God just do not mix. They never have and they never will. It is so clear to me now, why God put His warnings in the Old Testament about homosexuality. He did so because He loves us and doesn't want us to suffer the damnable consequences that will ultimately come with such evil practices. The New Testament reiterates God's warnings from the Old Testament as the Apostle Paul reminds humanity, "The wages of sin is death."
The Apostle Paul also warned those who are hurting God by their involvement in sins, "Do not grieve the Holy Spirit." God, Who created us in His image, has feelings just like He put in our own human personalities. His Spirit grieves over the offenses of His created beings. One day among the many days when my spirit battled with my flesh over the terrible grief I had caused God because of my involvement in homosexuality, I came to a fresh reality that sharply pierced through my own corrupted reasoning. It was an awakening of sorts, a reality that became a revelation.
This newly found revelation gave strength to my exhausted mind, a mind that had been desperately searching for a path out of those dark and hopeless days. It was the dawning of a new day for me as I now understood this: God was extending mercy to me, but not because I had had such a dreadful and abusive past and thus, I was a victim deserving of His mercy.
Thinking that I deserved God's mercy because He had to make up to me all of the years that He had allowed me to be abused by my mother was a fatal and immoral flaw in my thinking. That degenerate way of thinking had kept me, for years and years, repeating a vicious cycle of victimization where I demanded that God give me compensation for my suffering. I simply could not move into the new life that God had for me because I had been stuck reliving the past, waiting for God to resolve the terrible crimes that had been committed against me as a child.
The cycle of victimization was being broken as I realized that God's grace was appropriated to me, not as recompense for the abuses committed against me, but because He is merciful to everyone regardless of their upbringing. All are in need of mercy, the rich and the poor, the undeserving and the desperate. I could have had a magnificent start in life, and I still would have needed God's mercy and forgiveness. This is why the Apostle Paul declares to every man and woman in the Book of Romans, "For all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God."
For nearly ten years now, I have been completely liberated from the homosexual life. I have truly become a free man, having encountered the great gift of God's mercy that He extended to me in my darkest days. Yet, in today's world of the self-confident, the carnally minded and society elites, people like myself are judged as unimportant and disfigurements upon the landscape of wealth, privilege and higher education. They mock and ridicule my Christian values. Their hatred for people like me is of such an intense nature because they cannot put into a comfortable little box, the fact that I have overcome such a deplorable life -- without their professional help. No secular twelve step programs or books about "the 7 Steps to Victory" have been the tools of my liberation. Indeed, it has been the good news of the Gospel of Jesus Christ which has granted me total freedom from my past.
The sophisticated secularists cannot fathom the existence of a man they deem to be a misfit -- and an undesirable Bible thumper -- who has actually closed down ten pornographic businesses in the city of San Diego. They cannot comprehend how a man who spent 19 years in prison for being a convicted thief is now a totally transformed human being with a life story that has been broadcast on international television.
These elitist homosexual leaders and their secular intellectual partners cannot understand how a former prisoner and drug addict, and particularly an ex-gay Christian, could possibly get done the remarkable things that I have gotten done. After all, I live in poverty, sometimes barely able to put food on the table. I don't own a car and don't even know how to drive one. My suits all come from thrift stores. And all I possess is a high school education. In reality, according to the standard of success established by the homosexual elites in America, I am a real loser.
I may not have much money and I may not look that good in my thrift store suits, but I have something far more precious in the sight of God than all the power and all the money that people like anti-christian homosexual musician Elton John and anti-christian lesbian entertainer Ellen Degeneres could ever buy. For I possess the willingness to give my life to the Lord Jesus Christ so that He will surely have a man in this nation who is willing to lay down his life for the saving of the children of this generation. God has molded my spirit through many years of being in the fiery furnaces of affliction. Now, out of the furnace and its fires, I have come forth as a refined vessel willing to serve Him in every uncomfortable situation that life might present.
My willingness to serve God with such passion stems from God's love which now consumes my internal being. His love for the children of my generation has now become my love for the children of this generation. I have come to a deeper comprehension of the standard of love that Christ was proclaiming when He told His disciples, "Greater love has no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends."
Jesus also let His disciples know that it is a very precious thing for Him to have the assurance that there will be faithful servants of the Lord who are serving Him in the last days prior to His return to the earth to establish His eternal kingdom. He said to His disciples, "Nevertheless, when the Son of man cometh, shall He find faith on the earth?" The one thing that Jesus desired, and the one thing that I have the capacity to give Him, is my life. To have faith in God is the greatest act of gratitude that I can express to the Lord for all of the wonderful things that He did for me when He rescued me out of that damnable gutter. How could I resist the desires of the Darling of Heaven? I cannot. My life now belongs forever to God.
When we find ourselves in love with our God, we begin to separate ourselves from those people who are not seeking to walk a similar path. It can be a lonely life at times. In many respects we are social outcasts. Yet, God is a comfort to the lonely and to the outcasts.
The Bible gives outcasts some very clear and prophetic directions for the last days. The Bible declares in Isaiah 27:13: "So it shall be in that day: The great trumpet will be blown; They will come, who are about to perish in the land of Assyria; And they who are outcasts in the land of Egypt, shall worship the LORD in the holy mount at Jerusalem."
God is calling the outcasts of the earth to come back home to Him. The outcasts, the rejected, the so-called losers of this world, are being recalled back to the Lord where He can assemble them into His mighty Last Days army. It is why He reached down into the very depths of deepest depravity to redeem me. I can only imagine the amazing tales that shall soon be told from the lips of the other outcasts that I shall meet in the days ahead.
I was born an outcast. I resided for so many years in the gutter, a place where outcasts usually dwell and die. Yet, isn't that the way of the Lord, that He looked even in the gutter to find me? As we look to the example of Lazarus, covered in his funeral garments, placed away in the tomb of final darkness, we hear the Lord shouting, "Lazarus! Lazarus! Come forth." After being dead for four days and stinking from the stench of death and decay, Lazarus awoke and emerged from the tomb. Like Lazarus, I too was dead, dead in the land of the living, floundering in the gutter. But God said to me, as He said 2,000 years ago to Lazarus, "James! James! Come forth."
I have surely kissed the grave. And now, I have kissed the hand of the Lord who reached down into the gutter and pulled up my wasted existence so that I might stand as His redeemed servant in the land of the living. My eyes are straining from the newness of my brand new day. I can see the sunlight. I can feel the living breath of the eternal God upon my face. I am alive! I am alive!
