NEWS BRIEF: "Bush Leaves in Place Clinton 'Domestic Partners' Policy At State, Gay Paper Reports', Concerned Women of America, April 18, 2002, http://www.cwfa.org/articles/593/CFI/cfreport/index.htm
"The Bush administration is leaving in place a policy enacted in the last days of the Clinton presidency that calls for supporting the 'unmarried partners' of U.S. Foreign Service workers, according to a homosexual newspaper. The Washington Blade reports in its current (April 12) edition that a State Department spokesman 'involved in personnel matters said Colin Powell, Bushs secretary of state, and other high-level officials appointed by Bush,' reviewed the pro-homosexual directive by former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright 'and decided to keep it in place'.
We Born Again Christians supported George W. Bush for President in the elections of 2000 because we desperately wanted a clear change from the disastrous moral policies of Bill Clinton. We were tired of Clinton's sexual dalliances, but we were equally tired of his constant support of homosexual policies! Clinton did more to advance the cause of the Gay/Lesbian agenda than any previous president in history.
We wanted a huge change, and most Christians thought we had it in George W. Bush, who claimed to have been Born Again through the ministry of Billy Graham. In the interim period from December 13, 2000, when the Supreme Court ruled in favor of Bush in the Florida election controversy to January 20, 2001, when he took office, Bush intimated that he would do much to roll back the Clinton policies. He ordered a temporary freeze on the many and controversial Executive Orders Clinton initiated just before leaving office, and he hinted he would do the same type of review throughout the Executive Branch.
Just a few weeks into his presidency, Bush officials quietly announced that they would not roll back any of Clinton's Executive Orders, but would allow them to stand and assume the full force of law. We should have realized then and there that Bush might not have any intention of reversing any of the Gay/Lesbian policies of the Clinton years, but most Christians still were too enamored of Bush to really notice.
Let us stop right here to review the Illuminist viewpoint of the average citizen in the world, written over 100 years ago in a New World Order planning document entitled, "The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion". Listen carefully, for their understanding of human nature will explain most of the reason Clinton stayed so very popular, and why Bush is staying popular with Christians even though his "spiritual fruits" are contrary to those of a genuine Christian. The spiritual fruit is starting to be very noticeable on the Bush Presidency Tree. Listen:
"In all ages the people of the world, equally with individuals, have accepted words for deeds, for THEY ARE CONTENT WITH A SHOW and rarely pause to note, in the public arena, whether promises are followed by performance." [Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion, Subparagraph #8, Protocol #5, Despotism and Modern Progress. [Emphasis was in the original]
Christians are even more gullible than this sentence implies when it comes to spotting a counterfeit, look-alike Christian. We want to believe; therefore, we ignore the accumulating evidence to the contrary. We listen to the snippets of words and actions that confirm our belief and ignore those that conflict. Thus, we remain immersed in darkness, and are deceived.
Let us now return to this article from Concerned Women of America [CWA]:
"The Blade reports that the Clinton/Albright and now Bush/Powell policy directly benefits, among others, Michael Guest, the openly homosexual career Foreign Service officer who Bush appointed last year as Ambassador to Romania. Guests homosexual lover lives with him in the U.S. Embassy compound in Bucharest and has accompanied him, like a spouse, to 'official embassy functions, including a U.S. Marine Corps ball,' according to the newspaper." [Ibid.]
How many Christians are even aware that Bush had nominated an openly gay person as Ambassador to Romania? How many Christians are aware of this spectacle in Romania, where this gay ambassador is accompanied by his male lover to "official embassy functions, including a U.S. Marine Corps ball" as though they were married? This scene is straight out of Sodom and Gomorrah, for homosexual relationships were so out in the open, and so accepted there, that no laws existed that forbade such open display of gay activity.
Now, CWA tells us how Clinton/Bush are openly pursuing this gay policy in such a manner as to circumvent the law:
" 'I think the State Department can do what Vermont did with civil unions,' a Republican source on Capitol Hill told Culture & Family Report. 'They cant say Fred is the spouse of Paul, but they can go a long way toward giving Fred all the benefits of a spouse.' (Vermonts 'civil unions' law grants all the benefits of marriage to homosexuals without the word 'marriage.')"
Michael Schwartz, Vice President for Government Relations for Concerned Women of America agrees.
It appears as if the Clinton State Department changed the words to circumvent DOMA, Schwartz said. Theyve done an end-run around the law, and its surprising to see the new [Bush] administration going along.
Let us consider another CWA article, this one even more serious:
NEWS BRIEF: "Pro-Homosexual Hate Crimes Promotion Continues under Bush Administration", by Peter LaBarbara, January 10, 2002, http://cultureandfamily.org/report/2002-01-10/n_thoughtcrimes.shtml
"Washington, D.C. The Departments of Justice and Education are distributing publications that advance a homosexual 'hate crimes' agenda identical to that of former president Bill Clinton almost a year into the administration of George W. Bush, C&F Report has learned ... Instead of turning the spigot off, it seems the Bush administration is letting the same water pour out full blast, said McCoy, president of the West Virginia Family Foundation (WVFF)." [Emphasis added]
"But McCoy is starting to question the administrations intentions. He cites the continued availability of another tendentious [biased] document on the Department of Educations (DOE) Web site, titled Protecting Students from Harassment and Hate Crime: A Guide for Schools,' which was published by the DOEs Office of Civil Rights and the National Association of Attorneys General. The 157-page report lists dozens of pro-homosexual organizations, many from Massachusetts, as resources ..."
Thus, we can see that President Bush is continuing to threaten the liberties of Christian Americans to speak out Biblical truth about homosexuality. When Clinton pushed for "tolerance" and "diversity" in the homosexual vein, we understood that, one day, Christians might be jailed and persecuted simply and only for daring to publicly proclaim the Biblical truth about the matter.
This area is one very critical example of the changes we expected a Christian Bush to undertake. Lamentably, he has not changed this pro-gay policy, but continues to enforce it within his Administration!
Another conservative leader is then quoted in this CWA article as he expresses disbelief that Bush is continuing to enforce this Clinton policy that endangers the sexual welfare of our children. Listen:
"Brian Camenker, president of the Massachusetts-based Parents Rights Coalition, was surprised to learn that the Clinton education document citing homosexual activist groups as resources is still available a year into President Bushs administration. 'From a parents point of view, a report like this from our federal government is unbelievably offensive,' Camenker told C&F Report. 'Every one of these groups has been active in our community pushing the radical homosexual agenda in the public schools which my children attend. The Bush administration should be protecting us, not aiding predators of our children'. [Emphasis added]
This particular fruit of the Bush Administration is especially foul: "aiding predators of our children" is strong stuff indeed. If you or I were in Bush's shoes, we would have taken action on the first day in office to reverse this particularly offensive agenda; but, Bush has not, continuing to enforce these Clinton policies.
Now, let us look at yet another CWA article, as CWA examines what homosexual activists are saying about Bush.
NEWS BRIEF: "Homosexual Activists Pleasantly Surprised by Bush Record", by Peter LaBarbara, January 23, 2002, http://cultureandfamily.org/report/2002-01-23/n_bush.shtml?print
"A year into the administration of George W. Bush, homosexual activists are praising the Republican president for supporting their agenda more than they had expected. Bushs appointment of former Montana Governor Mark Racicot (R) as chairman of the Republican National Committee (RNC) is the latest action to earn applause from 'gay' leaders. A lobbyist with the homosexual pressure group Human Rights Campaign (HRC) hailed Racicots pro-homosexual record and said his 'appointment is a message of inclusiveness and tolerance in the Republican Party'.
We encourage you to go regularly to the Gay Republican Log Cabin web site at http://www.lcr.org/ to see just how enthusiastic they are about Bush's avid pro-gay agenda. In fact, to really receive eye-opening news, subscribe to Log Cabin Republican's electronic newsletter. Your eyes will truly be opened.
In the middle of this article, quoted above, CWA then reports that Log Cabin is truly gloating over the pro-gay agenda of Bush. Listen:
"Log Cabin Gloats: The Log Cabin Republicans (LCR) are busy gloating over Bushs homosexual-affirming record. This includes a recent appointment of an open homosexual as ambassador to Romania, and Bushs lack of a support for a conservative effort to maintain a congressional ban on the District of Columbias 'domestic partner' law, which gives marriage-type benefits to unmarried and homosexual city employees.
'Remember how every other gay organization was predicting disaster for the nation and the beginning of an extremist anti-gay era? LCR stated in its January 2002 newsletter, according to the Blade. What a difference a year has made.
Were proud to report that one year later, President George W. Bush has governed exactly the way he promised he would, the newsletter reportedly states. He won LCRs endorsement on the promise to be an inclusive Republican president and to lead a new, more inclusive Republican Party. And our president has come through in his first year. Promise made, promise kept.
As if this Gay outpouring of support for Bush were not bad enough, CWA then lists the homosexual agenda being followed by the Bush Administration.
"Bush Homosexual Record Outlined: Although homosexual activists traditionally aligned with the Democratic Party have a lot of bad things to say about President Bushs record on 'gay' issues, particularly his nomination of the socially conservative Ashcroft as Attorney General, the Blade article is striking in its positive tone examining Bushs first year.
The Blade reported the following developments under Bush:
* He did not overturn Clintons pro-homosexual executive orders;
* He made four openly gay appointments, including a gay ambassador [Michael Guest] who moved into the U.S. Embassy compound in Bucharest, Romania, with his same-sex partner;
* He signed the federal appropriations bill that ended the 10-year ban on D.C.s domestic partner program;
* His administration has allowed homosexual couples to apply for victim compensation from the September 11 terrorist attack;
* He continued the policies of the Clinton administration on AIDS, including not opposing an increase in federal AIDS-related spending. (The Blade quotes a homosexual AIDS activist: To many of us, thats OK, because some people feared they [the Bush administration] would pull back from what we have now.)
* He has appointed 'a number of top officials who have long-standing records' supporting 'gay civil rights', such as Mary Matalin as White House counselor. Matalin is a GOP campaign strategist who has repeatedly derided pro-family opponents of homosexual activism (one time referring to them as 'the Leviticus crowd' after the Old Testament book in which God calls homosexual acts an abomination)."
I find it highly objectionable that President Bush would nominate someone like Mary Matalin, who was so derisive in calling us Fundamental Christians the "Leviticus crowd", thus simultaneously also deriding our precious Bible.
Concerned Women of America even noted how Attorney General Ashcroft is cooperating with the Gay/Lesbian agenda.
NEWS BRIEF: "Ashcroft Decision on Hate Crime Case Seen as Fuel for Kennedy Bill", by Robert H. Knight, May 2, 2002, http://cultureandfamily.org/report/2002-05-02/n_thought-crimes.shtml?print
"Homosexual activists say they are planning to use Attorney General John Ashcrofts announcement on April 10 that federal prosecutors would include a hate crime component in a 1996 double murder to lobby for a hate crimes bill sponsored by Sen. Ted Kennedy (D-Massachusetts). According to the May 14 edition of The Advocate, a magazine for homosexuals, Human Rights Campaign Political Director Winnie Stachelberg said that HRC would use Ashcrofts decision as fuel in its lobbying efforts for the Local Law Enforcement Enhancement Act, a sweeping federal bill that would stiffen penalties for crimes based on sexual orientation, gender, and disability all of which are currently absent from federal hate-crimes law.
A CWA spokesperson asks: "The Hate Crimes Sentencing Enhancement Act is not necessary to charge the death penalty for this crime, said Jan LaRue, chief counsel for Concerned Women for America. In fact, this is probably the first time this law has ever been used. We have to ask, is the attorney general claiming that the government could not seek the death penalty had the victims been a husband and wife? [Ibid.]
In other words, CWA is saying that Ashcroft is cooperating with the gays to pass a law that sets special protection for gay couples that are not afforded straight couples! Predictably, the gays were very pleased with Ashcroft.
"Pleasantly surprised by Mr. Ashcrofts action, The Advocate article commented, 'The attorney generals passion is particularly interesting because as a Republican U.S. Senator, Ashcroft was a vociferous opponent of hate crimes legislation that included sexual orientation'. CWA then lamented the "sweeping powers" this legislation affords;
"Kennedys bill would extend federal jurisdiction to sexual orientation and the other categories and apply it widely to crimes committed anywhere, not just on federal property. 'They say this is a sweeping bill, and theyre right,' LaRue said. 'It would constitute a major expansion of federal prosecutorial power'. Current federal law 18 USC Section 1111 would clearly allow the Justice Department to seek the death penalty in this case, LaRue said, so 'Mr. Ashcroft did not need any hate crime component'.
Thus, we see that Gay Republicans are pleased with Ashcroft , at least on this issue. However, Log Cabin Republicans (LCR) reported that Ashcroft made a point of making his first meeting with a civil rights group after assuming office to be with a gay group. Listen:
NEWS BRIEF: "ATTORNEY GENERAL ASHCROFT MEETS WITH LOG CABIN. First Meeting
with Civil Rights Organization, New Attorney General Reaches Out to All Americans",
February 22, 2002.
"(WASHINGTON) In his first meeting with a civil rights organization, Attorney
General John Ashcroft met today with the leadership of Log Cabin Republicans,
the nation's largest gay Republican organization, at his office in the Department
of Justice in Washington, D.C. 'This meeting was another step in solidifying
a working relationship with the Attorney General and the Department of Justice
on civil rights issues and matters of concern to gay and lesbian Americans',
said Rich Tafel, executive director of Log Cabin Republicans, who attended the
However, proving he is very conscious of his public perception, Bush did announce he would no longer proclaim Gay/Lesbian Pride Day. This proclamation is exceedingly hollow in light of Bush's real actions, as noted above. However, the average Christian is paying no attention to Bush's actions, but will certainly hear his announcement that he is no longer proclaiming gay pride day! What was it the Protocols had to say again?
""In all ages the people of the world, equally with individuals, have accepted words for deeds, for THEY ARE CONTENT WITH A SHOW and rarely pause to note, in the public arena, whether promises are followed by performance."
CWA is so concerned about President Bush's pro-homosexual agenda they have posted a great cartoon on their web site at http://cultureandfamily.org/report/2002-04-18/2n.jpg
CHUCK BALDWIN WEIGHS IN ON THIS ISSUE
Even the secular world is noticing the huge, huge disparity between Bush's anti-homosexual campaign promises and his real-world activities since taking office as president. Listen to Baldwin's bold lament over Bush's pro-gay policies.
NEWS BRIEF: "Bush in Bed with Homosexuals", By Chuck Baldwin, April 23, 2002.
""By now, we have a clear record on the Bush administration in regard to homosexuality. The record reveals that President Bush is more than sympathetic to the homosexual agenda. One could even argue that Bush has become (or always was) a proud promoter of that agenda. Here is the record; you judge for yourself."
"1. Candidate George W. Bush appointed four openly homosexual, gay-rights
advocates to his presidential campaign steering committee. According to the
homosexual group, Log Cabin Republicans, 'scores' of Bush state steering
committee members and campaign volunteers were homosexuals.
2. Perhaps this explains why hundreds of homosexuals gathered in Washington,
DC, last weekend to 'celebrate the achievements and leadership of George W.
Bush.' It also helps to explain why Rich Tafel, executive director of
Log Cabin Republicans, said, 'We want the country to know that we are behind our president and administration.'
3. On Dec. 21, 2001, President Bush signed a historic bill, which 'for the first time allows the District of Columbia government to fund a program that will give domestic partners of city employees access to health benefits.' Remember, Bush insisted that openly homosexual Congressman Jim Kolbe of Arizona be given a prominent speaking role at the Republican National Convention. It was Kolbe who introduced the amendment lifting the ban on gay partner benefits in DC
4. Bush named Scot Evertz, a prominent homosexual activist, to head the White House AIDS office even though he had absolutely no experience dealing with public health issues.
5. Bush appointed another homosexual activist, Donald Cappoccia, to the U.S. Commission on Fine Arts.
6. Bush appointed openly homosexual, Michael Guest, as Ambassador to Romania. Since then, Bush has decided to leave in place a Clinton policy that calls for supporting the 'unmarried partners' of U.S. Foreign Service workers. This allows Guest's live-in lover to live in the U.S. Embassy in Bucharest and allows him to join Guest at official embassy functions.
7. Bush presided over the appointment of homosexual activist, Stephen Herbits, to oversee the choice of civilian personnel at the Pentagon.
8. Bush has not reversed a single pro-homosexual policy instituted by former president Bill Clinton. Not even one!
9. The Bush administration posted a job for what is called a 'gay and lesbian program specialist' at the Department of Agriculture.
10. Bush appointed the ardently pro-homosexual Governor of Massachusetts, Paul Cellucci, as U.S. Ambassador to Canada.
11. Bush appointed Lewis Eisenberg to become the new GOP chief fundraiser. Eisenberg has a long history of supporting pro-homosexual and pro-abortion candidates.
12. Just yesterday, The Washington Times reported, "The Bush administration has joined European delegates to an upcoming U.N. Summit on children in moving to recognize families 'in various forms,' including unmarried cohabiting couples and homosexual partners.' "

"Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them." [Matthew 7:16-20; Parallel Bible, KJV/Amplified Bible Commentary]
Interestingly, this section is preceded by verse 15, in which Jesus warns of spiritual deception by counterfeit sheep.
"Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves." [Ibid.]
Is this the situation we have here? Is George W. Bush a "wolf in sheep's clothing"? Are the fruits of his administration consistent with the good fruits of the Bible? Are these fruits consistent with a Born Again believer who has the Holy Spirit residing within? Are these actions what Jesus would do? (W.W.J.D?)
Also interestingly, Jesus' comments about knowing a person by their fruits [verses 16-20] is followed by verses 21-23, where Jesus meets such bad-fruit people who were sheep in wolves' clothing, on the White Throne Judgment. These people are being condemned to the Lake of Fire and do not understand why. They did so many mighty works for Jesus, even casting out demons! Yet, the Lord said to them: "I never knew you; depart from Me, you who act wickedly, disregarding My commands." [Matthew 7:20-21; Parallel Bible, KJV/Amplified Bible Commentary].
At this point, many well-meaning Christians will say to me that we are not to "judge", even on the basis of fruits. They say this because of Jesus' condemnation of hypocritical condemnation. In Matthew 7:1, Jesus says, "Do not judge and criticize and condemn others, so that you may not be judged and criticized and condemned yourselves."
Jesus then goes on to describe hypocrites who do unjustly judge and criticize others for things they are doing in their own lives. We see these examples in verses 3, 4, and 5. In verse 5, Jesus even calls such a person a "hypocrite". Therefore, a person guilty of the same or worse behavior is not to be piously criticizing another person.
But, this section does not tell us we can never "judge" the fruits of another person. In fact, Jesus also said, "Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment." [John 7:24] We are to judge, but do so "righteously". We are not to judge by merely superficial examination, but we are to get well under the surface before we reach a "righteous decision" on a person's fruit!
I really like the way the Amplified Bible Commentary reveals the full meaning in the original language:
"Be honest in your judgment and do not decide at a glance (superficially) and by appearances; but judge fairly and righteously."
The political advisers of both Clinton and Bush have actually turned Jesus' admonition around 180º! Bush is publicly posing as a good Christian who really has Jesus' commandments in his heart, when his record speaks otherwise. Bush and his advisers know well that the majority of Christians will examine him superficially according to his public pronouncements and some well-placed media stories, thus superficially judging him to be Christian. He knows full well that the average Christian does not take the time to dig well beneath the surface to discover the true spiritual fruit.
We thank Chuck Baldwin and Concerned Women
of America for getting below the surface. May we all recognize the true spiritual
fruits of this president; we believe they have "judged righteously".
Truly, we are getting close to the End of the Age.

This is the reason for this ministry, to enable you to first understand the peril facing you, and then help you develop strategies to warn and protect your loved ones. Once you have been thoroughly trained, you can also use your knowledge as a means to open the door of discussion with an unsaved person. I have been able to use it many times, and have seen people come to Jesus Christ as a result. These perilous times are also a time when we can reach many souls for Jesus Christ, making an eternal difference.

He will instantly forgive you, and fill your heart with the joy of the Holy Spirit. Then, you need to begin a daily walk of prayer and personal Bible Study.
If you have never accepted Jesus Christ as Savior, but have come to realize His reality and the approaching End of the Age, and want to accept His FREE Gift of Eternal Life, you can also do so now, in the privacy of your home. Once you accept Him as Savior, you are spiritually Born Again, and are as assured of Heaven as if you were already there. Then, you can rest assured that the Kingdom of Antichrist will not touch you spiritually.
