PROVIDING HELP. CREATING HOPE.
It’s appalling that the State Department has been rushing headlong toward approval of the Key Stone XL tar pipeline, which could devastate the environments in both Canada and the United States. Tar sand have been called the ‘most destructive project on earth’ because it is laying waste to the great Borealk Forest , obliterating migratory bird nesting grounds and spewing excessive global warming pollution . In addition transporting the world’s most dirtiest oil to refineries in Texas and threaten birds and other wildlife there.
This area for example , will be in the path of this and threaten American heartland ‘s most entire ecosystems and drinking water supplies while rasing gas prices in the Midwest. This is not what God wants of us when he states we have command of the fish in the sea and beasts on the earth. ( See Bible first chapter.) This seems t o be a continued pattern going back to the days of President Theodore Roosevelt vs. those who wish to “improve .”
Call on President Obama and the State Department and tell them this is not in our nation’s best interest and serves no one in the long run. There has to be other cleaner ideas to use to get oil we need? Harming wildlife areas are not one of them. See the web link below and stop the Key Stone XL pipeline!
STOP TAR PIPELINE NOW PAGE-
Here we go again. The American Civil Liberties Union of Illinois has joined forces with foster care to battle Catholic Charities’ policy of turning away prospective parents who are in civil unions ( Gay marriage.)
The Catholic Charities in Springfield and Belleville filed asking a Sangamon judge to uphold their policy for care only to married couples or single parents living alone. ACLU considers nothing but the ‘best interest of the child. ‘ Really? What is in the Bible with regards to Sodem?
In other story the state of AL. is being pointed out by President Obama over its law that get tough on illegals in their state. Included arrest for aid to an illegal or hiring one.
What he will not say is that it in the interest to stop a terrorist who may cause great harm if he or she gets in. Wonder why AZ. State wants donations to build its own fence! Hopefully, both challenges will fail !
