Sing a little louder! This past Monday night, at the final voting of the unjust ordinance, my thoughts skipped to the churches that sang a little louder while the Nazi trains drove by with screams of help from the Jewish people being transported to the concentration camps.
As I sat in the Winter Park Commissioner’s meeting this past Monday night, I felt history was being made. I envisioned history books writing about this very night, the day free speech, the right to protest, picket and exercise one’s First Amendment rights were exterminated in favor of peace, harmony and tranquility in one’s home and neighborhood. I heard how Winter Park strives to protect it’s citizens and provide a peaceful atmosphere all under the guise of stripping away a person’s right to stand up and defend civil rights issues.
I thought about how lovely this all sounds to want peace, harmony and tranquility and at the same time thought about the blood that was shed for our freedom. When there are wicked laws in the land, there can be no peace, when there is an injustice against the rights of another human being there can be no tranquility. And those of us that know a wicked law is taking place and violating the rights of human beings, we cannot be silent.
The irony of it all is the fact that Winter Park just named their park after Martin Luther King Jr., a man that fought for civil rights for his fellow man. What I witnessed was the uttermost mockery of what Martin Luther King Jr. stood for. I thought back on the marches, the boycotts of buses, everything to bring an end to the injustice of the treatment of black Americans. I thought, what would this city do if those very same protests and acts of civil disobedience were going on today in Winter Park? Would they have slapped a 50-foot buffer zone and forbidden any type of peaceful protest against the civil outcry of injustice?
I have sworn to uphold the Constitution, but … if it was constitutional or unconstitutional, I would still do it …
– Tom McMacken, Winter Park City Commissioner, explains why he voted for a no-free-speech ordinance
The City Commissioners of Winter Park have shown the public their real side. They moved quickly to protect Jenna Tosh, the new CEO of Planned Parenthood Orlando. She is their rising star to bring legitimacy to this business that survives on the bloody massacre of the innocent.
This is what this whole controversy is over. Peaceful pro-lifer’s went in front of Jenna Tosh’s home and prayed, sang and exposed (Ephesians 5:11) what she does for a living. Within two weeks the City Commissioners had drafted up an Emergency Ordinance outlawing picketing and protesting in their community within a 50-foot buffer zone. The ordinance is broad and far reaching, leaving it open for possible legal challenges.
One wonders if the resident would have been a banker being picketed by Occupy Wall Streeters if the Commissioners would have jumped to his aid. I don’t think so. This ordinance is nothing less then one of the most politically correct ordinances I’ve seen in a long time.
On top of that, one of the City Commissioners, Sarah Sprinkel attends the same church as Jenna Tosh, the First Congregational Church of Winter Park. To say there is collusion here would be an understatement.

This past Monday night, at the final voting of the unjust ordinance, one could see the color blue scattered throughout the city hall, this was the color of solidarity for Jenna Tosh. Her church came in support of her and this ordinance disguised as peace, harmony and tranquility.
While I looked at the blue around the room and listened to her pastor, Reverend Karen Barker-Duncan, stand up and defend her parishioner Jenna Tosh what she does, my thoughts skipped to the churches that sang a little louder while the Nazi trains drove by with screams of help from the Jewish people being transported to the concentration camps.
Now is a different time, but much the same thing is happening here in this room were folks in blue sing a little louder while babies are led to the slaughter mercilously at the place Tosh manages, and they as “church-goers” are defending her. All the while, the true love of Christ would be to encourage Tosh to leave this business which violates and destroys human beings in the womb, not to support her in this bloodshed.
As it came down to the final vote, Mayor Kenneth Bradley defended the First Amendment and made it very clear he would not be voting on this ordinance. He was the lone vote. For that he must be commended.
The other four commissioners joined together and all gave a thumbs up for peace, harmony and tranquility in their city, usurping free speech and the First Amendment.
Most troubling of all was Commissioner Tom McMacken’s talk on why he would be voting for the ordinance.
I have sworn to uphold the Constitution, but I’ve also looked everyone of my neighbors in the eyes and said, “I am going to do what is in the best interest of Winter Park.” And to be quite honest with that, if it was constitutional or unconstitutional, I would still do it, because these are my neighbors and they deserve protection from any kind of intrusion in your home. So I am supporting this wholeheartedly.
Commissioner McMacken made it very clear that he was willing to overlook the Constitution in this situation.
Yes, this was a night I won’t soon forget, the day free speech died in Winter Park. God help us!

Revival, Resistance, Reformation, Revolution
An Introduction to the Doctrines of Interposition and Nullification
In 1776, a short time after the Declaration of Independence was adopted, Thomas Jefferson, John Adams and Benjamin Franklin were assigned to design an official seal for the United States of America. Their proposed motto was Rebellion to Tyrants is Obedience to God. America owes its existence to centuries of Christian political philosophy. Our nation provided a model for liberty copied by nations the world over.
By the 21st century, we need a “Puritan Storm” to sweep away the Hegelian notion that the state is “God walking on earth.” We need revival and reformation in full force to vanquish the problems that plague us as a nation — from government controlled healthcare — to abortion on demand — to same sex “marriage.” This booklet gives a primer on our founders’ Christian idea of government and examines how the doctrine of nullification was woven into the Constitution as a safeguard against federal tyranny. It concludes with the history and theology of civil resistance. A Second American Revolution is coming with the Word of God growing mightily and prevailing! (Acts 19:20).

“When the lives of the unborn are snuffed out, they often feel pain, pain that is long and agonizing.” – President Ronald Reagan to National Religious Broadcasters Convention, January 1981
Ronald Reagan became convinced of this as a result of watching The Silent Scream – a movie he considered so powerful and convicting that he screened it at the White House.
The modern technology of real-time ultrasound now reveals the actual responses of a 12-week old fetus to being aborted. As the unborn child attempts to escape the abortionist’s suction curette, her motions can be seen to become desperately agitated and her heart rate doubles. Her mouth opens – as if to scream – but no sound can come out. Her scream doesn’t have to remain silent, however … not if you will become her voice. This newly re-mastered version features eight language tracks and two bonus videos.
“… a high technology “Uncle Tom’s Cabin” arousing public opinion just as Harriet Beecher Stowe’s 1852 antislavery novel ignited the abolitionist movement.” – Sen. Gordon Humphrey, Time Magazine

Who is the Real Jesus?
Ever since the dawn of modern rationalism, skeptics have sought to use textual criticism, archeology and historical reconstructions to uncover the “historical Jesus” — a wise teacher who said many wonderful things, but fulfilled no prophecies, performed no miracles and certainly did not rise from the dead in triumph over sin.
Over the past 100 years, however, startling discoveries in biblical archeology and scholarship have all but vanquished the faulty assumptions of these doubting modernists. Regrettably, these discoveries have often been ignored by the skeptics as well as by the popular media. As a result, the liberal view still holds sway in universities and impacts the culture and even much of the church.
The Real Jesus explodes the myths of these critics and the movies, books and television programs that have popularized their views. Presented in ten parts — perfect for individual, family and classroom study — viewers will be challenged to go deeper in their knowledge of Christ in order to be able to defend their faith and present the truth to a skeptical modern world – that the Jesus of the Gospels is the Jesus of history — “the same yesterday, today and forever” (Hebrews 13:8). He is the real Jesus.
Speakers include: George Grant, Ted Baehr, Stephen Mansfield, Raymond Ortlund, Phil Kayser, David Lutzweiler, Jay Grimstead, J.P. Holding, and Eric Holmberg.
Ten parts, over two hours of instruction!

“Give me liberty or give me death!”
Patrick Henry’s famous declaration not only helped launch the War for Independence, it also perfectly summarized the mindset that gave birth to, and sustained, the unprecedented experiment in Christian liberty that was America.
The freedom our Founders envisioned was not freedom from suffering, want, or hard work. Nor was it freedom to indulge every appetite or whim without restraint—that would merely be servitude to a different master. No, the Founders’ passion was to live free before God, unfettered by the chains of autocracy, shackles that slowly but inexorably bind men when the governments they fashion fail to recognize and uphold freedom’s singular, foundational truth: that all men are created in the image of God, and are thereby co-equally endowed with the right to “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”
This presentation is a similar call, not to one but many. By reintroducing the principles of freedom that gave birth to America, it is our prayer that Jesus, the true and only ruler over the nations, will once again be our acknowledged Sovereign, that we may again know and exult in the great truth that “where the Spirit of the LORD is, there is liberty” (2 Cor. 3:17).

This DVD features “Liberty: The Model of Christian Liberty” along with “Dawn’s Early Light: A Brief History of America’s Christian Foundations.” Bonus features include a humorous but instructive collection of campaign ads and Eric Holmberg’s controversial YouTube challenge concerning Mitt Romney’s campaign for president.
