Poll: Most Americans Support Limits on Political Spending

The Associated Press and the National Constitution Center this weekend released the findings of wide-ranging poll that covered several issues near and dear to LB nation, including political spending, same-sex marriage and the relevancy of the Constitution. The AP also has a story on the poll, which was conducted in August and drew on telephone interviews with 1,006 adults nationwide.
On the the relevancy of the Constitution*:
A majority of respondents continue to say that the Constitution remains relevant today (69%) rather than an outdated document that needs to be modernized (28%). However, among Democrats, those referring to the Constitution as an enduring document dipped from 67% to 58%, and among Republicans, it fell from 92% to 80%.
Among independents, on the other hand, those who believe the document to be “enduring” increased from 63% to 75%

FL Family Faces Fines for Holding Home Bible Studies

Over the past few years, a number of families have faced fines and other legal ramifications for hosting home Bible studies.
Recently, Michael Salman’s case captured widespread attention (he was hosting large meetings in a building on his property and was inevitably imprisoned after failing to comply with zoning regulations). Then, there was a family that was fined in San Juan Capistrano, California, for hosting a Bible study without a permit (a situation that was inevitably amended, with the city changing its code).
Now, there’s yet another case — this time involving a Florida family — that is capturing headlines. Like the aforementioned cases, Shane and Marlen Roessiger, of Venice, are being held accountable for hosting weekly, Friday night home Bible study meetings that include as many as 10 participants.


Here Comes Incest, Just as Predicted

If all human beings should have the right to marry (or simply be with) the one they love, as proponents of same-sex “marriage” constantly tell us, then why shouldn’t adult, incestuous couples enjoy that same “right”? Hollywood director Nick Cassavetes is the latest to say, “Why not?”, and I for one am not the least bit surprised. Simply stated, with the public endorsement of same-sex relationships, the endorsement (or at least acceptance) of consensual, adult, incestuous relationships is inevitable. Consider the following: Already in April, 2007, Time magazine featured a major article entitled, “Should Incest Be Legal?” The article noted that critics of the Supreme Court’s Lawrence v. Texas ruling in 2003, which struck down Texas’ anti-sodomy law, argued that the ruling would lead to attempts to legalize same-sex “marriage” and polygamy. “It turns out,” Time noted, “that the critics were right,” adding that plaintiffs were now “using Lawrence to challenge laws against incest.” In December 2010, when Columbia University professor David Epstein was charged with one count of incest because of his three-year, consensual affair with his adult daughter, his attorney Matthew Galuzzo remarked, “It’s OK for homosexuals to do whatever they want in their own home. How is this so different? We have to figure out why some behavior is tolerated and some is not.” In May 2010, ran an article on “Gay Porn’s Most Shocking Taboo,” namely “Twincest.” As expressed by one of the twins, “My brother is my boyfriend, and I am his boyfriend.” One commenter wrote, “I have total moral and legal integrity here: No sexual act that results from the consent of both parties should be illegal or immoral. These boys apparently consented to do this. There is no possibility of deformed or retarded children: Therefore it is not a crime or your business.” But of course. Not surprisingly, a colleague reported to me that on other gay websites, the same argument was frequently raised in support of the twins. Even more shocking news was reported in May 2010. A 72-year-old woman and her long-estranged grandson in England were going to have a child together through a surrogate mother. Said the grandson, Phil: “You can’t help who you fall for.” Said his grandmother, Pearl: “Phil’s going to be a great dad. I never in a million years thought at 72 I’d be ‘pregnant’ and in love with my grandson. I make no apologies and I believe God’s given me a second chance.” In February of this year, Emily Yoffe (aka Prudence) responded to a question in her column on Male, fraternal twins who had been living together as lovers for many years wondered if they should come out and tell their family. After discussing legal and family matters, she closed with this counsel: “When people ask when you’re each going to go out there and find a nice young man, tell them that while it may seem unorthodox, you both have realized that living together is what works for you. Say no brothers could be more devoted or compatible, and neither of you can imagine wanting to change what you have.” Gay activist Dan Savage seconded her advice. In several countries, incest laws are being challenged, most notably in a major case in Germany involving a brother and sister who did not meet until later in life, only to fall in love and have children. Their attorney used the precedent of same-sex “marriage” to argue on his clients’ behalf. Some scientists now speak of GSA, genetic sexual attraction, which “occurs between two adults who have been separated during the critical years of development and bonding and are reunited years later as adults.” When they are finally reunited, “they become captivated with one another, sharing similar physical features, likes and dislikes.” Perhaps they could say, “My genes made me do it!”
