Lo and Behold!

Amazing! After writing yesterday questioning whether or not history is repeating itself, some new information has come to light. WorldNet Daily reports:

President Obama's recently passed health-care reform legislation includes a surprise for many Americans – a beefing up of a U.S. Public Health Service reserve force and expectations that it respond on short notice to "routine public health and emergency response missions," even involuntarily.


The article also reminds us of Obama's campaign pledge in 2008 to create a "civilian national security force:"

In talking about his plans to double the size of the Peace Corps and nearly quadruple the size of AmeriCorps and the size of the nation's military services, he made this rather shocking (and chilling) pledge: "We cannot continue to rely on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives we've set. We've got to have a civilian national security force that's just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded."


Stay tuned America, things are changing fast!

FAITH UNDER FIRE

Judge advances student's lawsuit against school
Graduate program participant ejected over religious beliefs

A federal judge will allow to continue a lawsuit by a former student against a long list of university officials who tossed her out of a graduate counseling program after she said her Christian beliefs would not allow her to affirm homosexual behavior. WND reported earlier on the dispute involving Eastern Michigan University, which was accused of tossing Julea Ward out of the program illegally.
She sued following "disciplinary proceedings" that resulted from her request that a training class "client" be referred to another student because she could not counsel him concerning his homosexual relationship, according to the Alliance Defense Fund Center for Academic Freedom.
When the case was filed, WND called president Susan W. Martin's office for comment and was referred to a media relations office. A statement release later by Pam Young, director of communications at EMU, did not address the student's dismissal.
Young said, "Although Eastern Michigan University does not comment on pending litigation, we are a diverse campus with a strong commitment not to discriminate on the basis of gender, race, disability, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression."
But David French, senior counsel for the ADF, said then, "When a public university has a prerequisite of affirming homosexual behavior as morally good in order to obtain a degree, the school is stepping over the legal line."
Ward was dismissed from the program March 12, 2009, and the dean of the college of education affirmed the decision on March 26, according to the ADF.
The court's decision, written by U.S. District Judge George Caram Steeh, said, "Ward has sufficiently [pled] and come forward with evidence that EMU defendants' act of dismissing Ward violated First and Fourteenth Amendment rights so clearly established that a reasonable official in their position would have clearly understood that they were under an affirmative duty to refrain from such conduct."
The judge said there are "genuine issues of material fact" about the school's "true motivations" for dismissing Ward from the program. Further, the judge concluded, the student's actions to avoid in advance a counseling session for which she had reservations probably actually followed professional ethical guidelines, instead of breaking them as the school accused.
The demand by EMU regents, school executives and others for the case to be dismissed was therefore denied, the judge said.
The student had been targeted by the school's disciplinary process as a result of her decision, and she was "informed that the only way she could stay in the graduate school counseling program would be if she agreed to undergo a 'remediation' program … to see the 'error of her ways,'" ADF said.
The goal was to have Ward "change her 'belief system,' as it relates to counseling about homosexual relationships, conforming her beliefs to be consistent with the university's views," the law firm said.
She refused and was given the choice of leaving voluntarily or having a formal review.
The ADF Center for Academic Freedom defends religious freedom at America's public universities. ADF is a legal alliance of Christian attorneys and like-minded organizations defending the right of people to freely live out their faith.

Kudo's to Julea Ward! Thanks for standing up for what you believe in! It has always amazed me how when a Gay or Lesbien stand up and want their rights stomped all over people around them they expect results now! But, when it's the other way around it's against the rules! I say we should ALL have the same rights! If you don't believe in men screwing other men and women laying with other women than that should be accepted. If you believe in that crap then you should move away from people that don't believe in it or keep your mouth shut! Great job Julea! Hope you beat the S.O.B.'s that kicked you out! Don't ever let up!
