Dr. James Dobson Condemns House Democrats for Passing what Should be Called ‘The Inequality Act of 2019’

“It imposes a thinly veiled death sentence to the First Amendment of the Constitution, and takes away the protections against tyranny handed down to us by our founding fathers.” -Dr. James Dobson

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo.—On behalf of the James Dobson Family Institute, Dr. James Dobson issues the following statement in response to the U.S. House of Representatives passing The Equality Act of 2019:

“In the history of our nation, there have been times when evil was so apparent—and so heinous—that they stand in infamy decades later. They include the Dred Scott Decision on slavery in 1857, and the Roe v. Wade ruling that legalized abortion in 1973. Now, we are faced with another such tragic moment in American history.

A few days ago, May 17th, Democrats in the House of Representatives passed what they call The Equality Act of 2019, which is breathtaking in its scope. If it survives a vote in the Senate, this legislation will represent one of the most egregious assaults on religious liberty ever foisted on the people of this great nation. It therein imposes a thinly veiled death sentence to the First Amendment of the Constitution, and takes away the protections against tyranny handed down to us by our founding fathers. It was this unyielding commitment to religious liberty that led to the American Revolution in 1776. The pastors and the patriots of that day died to free themselves from British imperialism. Thank God for the men who stood courageously against the most powerful military in the world, because freedom meant more to them than their own lives.

Let me speak candidly and passionately to people of faith throughout these United States of America. We must not remain silent as our historic liberties are gutted by Democrats and their friends in the LGBT movement. They will enslave us if they prevail! We must let our voices be heard, first in the U.S. Senate, and then to the world.

Viva liberty! Viva the First Amendment to the Constitution of the United States. Viva biblical values and beliefs. And woe to those who would take them from us.”

Hal Lindsey: Once again, war drums are sounding in the Middle East.

Once again, war drums are sounding in the Middle East.

Iran has ramped up its aggressiveness across the Persian Gulf and the Red Sea. It is using its proxy army in Yemen, the Houthis, to turn up the pressure on Saudi Arabia. Iran has recently been responsible for the drone attacks on oil tanker ships and oil terminal platforms.

The Saudis are on a war footing and the United States has moved another U.S. Navy carrier group into the region.

Even anti-war protests are starting to spring up here in America.

Israel and Hamas are in an uneasy ceasefire, but the recent conflict between the two was most probably a result of prodding by Iran.

In view of these developments, for this week’s program I have chosen an Encore Presentation of the show I produced on August 28, 2015. In that program, I explain some of the dangers created by Iran, which is Shi’ite, courting the Palestinian Authority and other Muslim entities in the region who are Sunni. This is significant because the Shias and the Sunnis have been essentially mortal enemies since 632 AD.

A joining of the two factions (Shi’ites comprise about 15% of the world’s Muslims while Sunnis make up the other 85%) may be necessary for the fulfillment of many of the Bible prophecies concerning the last days of this Age of Grace. We may be seeing this beginning to take place.

Here is how I described that program to you in my Friday e-blast on August 28, 2015:

An important, but almost completely ignored, development took place recently in the Middle East. I believe it comes as a direct result of the agreement between the West and Iran regarding its nuclear program.

It has powerful prophetic implications.

To date, Iran’s dominating influence has been exerted mainly among Shi’ite Muslims. The fact that Shi’ites comprise just 15% of the world’s Muslims – the other 85% are Sunni – has helped to restrain Iran’s global influence. It has effectively kept Iran fenced in. You see, the Shi’ites and Sunnis, though both Islamic, have been locked in a blood feud since 632 AD.

That fence may be breaking down.

Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas recently announced that he will travel to Tehran in the near future. He hopes to strengthen ties between Iran and the Palestinians.

That may not seem like a big deal until we consider the fact that Abbas is Sunni. His dominant political party, Fatah, is Sunni. His main ally (and sometime enemy), Hamas, is Sunni. Most, if not all, Palestinians are Sunni.

And it is worrying that not only are the Palestinians hoping to “strengthen ties” with Iran, but they are sending signals that they might be willing to subjugate themselves to Iran’s authority.

Recently, Iran’s Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei released his new book: Palestine. In it, he totally rejects the two-state solution between Israel and the Palestinians. He writes, “The solution is a one-state formula… Palestine.”

He also postulates that the new state of Palestine would be under “the hegemony of Iran.” In other words, he’s calling for a Shi’ite nation to be in control of a Sunni people. This is something that once would have been complete anathema for any self-respecting Sunni.

But those times are past!

Not to pile on, but also consider the fact that Mahmoud Abbas is beginning to publicly show support for Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. Assad is an Alawite, a branch of Shia Islam. Further, Assad is primarily supported — read that “propped up” — by two nations, Iran and Russia.

Folks, this is right out of Ezekiel 38!

Now we all know that Hamas and the PA have been receiving backdoor financial and technical assistance from Iran for years. But it was never out in the open. There was never a Palestinian commitment to Iran. But that now appears to be a distinct possibility.

Why now? Well, let’s consider the fact that because of the efforts of Mssrs. Obama and Kerry (and certainly other culprits, too), Iran is about to be flush with cash. Lots of cash. And two lines are forming to petition for their fair share: European bankers and the world’s terrorists.

I wonder why they need two lines?

But, wait, it gets even more interesting.

We all know that Abbas and the PA is essentially a money-making enterprise. That’s why it has been in control of the Palestinians for so many years and their lot is still so pitiful — even though billions and billions of dollars have been poured into the PA’s coffers by the dunderheads in the West. The Swiss banks love the PA and its leadership class.

So why would Abbas risk alienating some Western nations by making a public show of his willingness to cast his lot with the Iranians? I believe it is because they both share a hatred for Israel and the Jews. In fact, that may be the reason other Sunni nations decide to submit themselves to Shi’ite Iran.

By facing down the West’s modern day Chamberlains — gaining everything and ceding nothing — Iran has not only hit the cash bonanza, it has elevated its mystique to almost mythic proportions. And the rule of thumb in Islam is to go with the stronger horse.

Today, to the world’s Muslims who hate Israel and the Jews, Iran is definitely the stronger horse.

It’s getting harder to differentiate between Bible prophecy and the morning’s headlines, isn’t it?

But, unbelievably, there is another plot twist.

Not only has the West unleashed upon the world a more powerful, influential, and cash-rich Iran (the world’s greatest exporter of terrorism), but its Supreme Leader has made certain that no one can doubt where all of this is headed.

In his new book, Palestine, the Ayatollah proclaims himself as “the flagbearer of Jihad to liberate Jerusalem.” Say what? Did Obama and Kerry and company know this when they were prostrating themselves and kissing his ring?

They had obviously overlooked his descriptions of Israel as a “cancerous tumor” and “ally of the American Great Satan.” They apparently paid no mind to Khamenei’s encouragement of chants of “Death to Israel” and “Death to America” at his rallies.

They seemed to be in a mindless mad dash to reach a “deal” no matter the implications of the deal. And now, we’re beginning to realize those implications.

Did I mention that this is right out of Ezekiel 38?

The Bible prophets predicted that in the last days Russia would lead a confederacy of nations against Israel that included a host of Muslim nations led by Iran. Some critics have raised an eyebrow and noted that Sunni nations — which describes most Muslim nations — would never be led by a Shi’ite nation.

I suppose they can lower that eyebrow now.

News from Hal Lindsey Media Ministries (May 10th, 2019)

This week, unimpeded migration-invasion continues across the globe.

As martyred Christians are buried en masse in Asia and Africa, Islam remains in that rare class of protected parties among the world’s media and globalist elites, even though Islam is the world’s dominant producer of terrorism (and Christians the most persecuted class of people on earth). It is joined there by socialism, communism, and the Palestinians.

(By the way, I’ve always marveled at the tendency of the elite classes to rabidly protect the very ideas and ideologies that are their natural enemies. Do they do this out of guilt? Or do they deceive themselves into believing that they can use these broken and toxic ideas as weapons for their own advancement?)

As tensions flare once again in the Middle East, the explosion of antisemitism on the left side of the American political spectrum deters previous Democrat Party supporters of Israel from voicing their support for our beleaguered ally.

In view of these current situations, I have selected an “Encore Presentation” of a show that I produced on February 5, 2016. It directly deals with these issues. As I said last week, it’s a little spooky how so many of the stories I discussed on that program are figuring prominently in what is happening across the world now. And it helps explain how we reached the crises points we face today.

Here is the description of that program that I shared with you on February 5, 2016:

The results of the migrant crisis in Europe have lately been dominating the headlines. That’s mainly because some European nations are being forced to take steps to reverse the damage.

In fact, some of the more liberal, multiculture-oriented nations are being overwhelmed by the human tsunami they have welcomed into their midst.

But one of the more alarming and surprising results of this liberality is manifesting itself in Sweden. A recent study shows that for every 100 Swedish girls ages 16-17, there are now 123 boys. This disparity only portends problems down the road for Sweden.

To put this into perspective, look at China. The world recognizes the problems heading China’s way because of its longtime “one-child” policy, with its subsequent forced abortions, and the Chinese preference for boys over girls. In fact, Bloomberg reports that, “China now has 33 million more men than women, tens of millions of whom may never be able to find a mate.”

China has long been thought to be the nation facing the greatest crisis in this regard. That’s why it’s disturbing to realize that China’s ratio of 117 boys to every 100 girls is substantially lower than Sweden’s!

Has Sweden quietly pursued a longtime “one-child” policy of which the world has been unaware? No. Sweden’s problem is that it has accepted vast numbers of migrants from the Middle East. In fact, it receives more asylum applications per capita than any other country in Europe.

But why should that affect the general demographic make-up of Sweden? The simple answer is that young men and boys in their upper teens comprise the vast majority of Muslim migrants. The truth is that the numbers of migrants (contrary to what the media will have you believe) are so skewed toward men and boys that it has altered Sweden’s male-female ratio even more than China’s longtime policy of forced abortion has altered its demographic.

And whether or not they are actually terrorists, few of these healthy young males actually come to the west to be assimilated. They bring with them the roots of the very evil they say they’re fleeing.

Unfortunately, a perfect example of this problem occurred on New Year’s Eve last year in Cologne, Germany. In the public areas around the city’s main train station and city center, hundreds of German women were groped, robbed, and, in some cases, raped by bands of migrant thugs.

It was an unbelievable and shocking display that should have caused an enormous reaction across Europe. But it didn’t. Why? Because the European mainstream media ignored or suppressed the story for days.

And why did they do that? Especially regarding a frightening incident that flies in the face of all that is traditionally “European?”

One answer: Political Correctness.

The leftist governments of Europe, along with the European Union, are committed to the fiction that the millions of Muslim migrants are nice people who can be trusted and should be welcomed with open arms. And the European mainstream media is playing ball.

So they sat on the story. As a result, no one knows how many German women were robbed or raped when they unwittingly entered danger zones that the news media should have, but refused to, warn them about.

And this stuff is going on all over Europe. Everywhere the Islamic migrants have gone. For example, over the last two years, there has been a pronounced spike in rape cases in Norway.

But even more disturbing to me is that politically-correct European authorities are attempting to dismiss the connection. A police chief in Norway excused the migrants by saying that, “People from some parts of the world have never seen a girl in a miniskirt, only in a burqa.”

So rape is okay because the rapists are from a different culture?

Even Cologne’s mayor – a woman – apparently felt it was politically incorrect to blame the Muslim attackers. So she blamed the victims.

Folks, this is where Political Correctness leads. Directly to the times the Bible warns us about, when the right will be called wrong and the wrong will be called right.

I believe that Political Correctness gone amok is hastening the demise of Christian Europe.

In view of what I see happening in Europe, I’ve recently been thinking about the blessing of literacy. Yes, literacy. The ability to read and write.

In 1820, only 12% of the world’s adults could read and write. By 2000, 80% of the world’s adults could read and write.

That fact alone explains much about how the Gospel of Jesus Christ has been able to reach the far corners of this world. The gift of easy access to the Word of God – whether as a printed book or an application on your smartphone – is a blessing beyond human calculation.

But I’m afraid it is a blessing we take far too lightly.

For two thousand years, Christians have been imprisoned and martyred for believing and teaching God’s Word. No other book – or cause – has motivated so many to sacrifice so much, including most of the first Christian evangelists.

On this week’s program, I’m going to draw from the pages of my book, The Terminal Generation, to remind us of those who have sacrificed everything to prepare, preserve, and promote the Word of God throughout the world and to all of the following generations. We owe them a debt of gratitude only God can repay.

Hal Lindsey Report: 5/3/2019 Migration or Invasion?

I have chosen to present an “Encore Presentation” of a show that I produced on September 25, 2015. It directly deals with these issues. It is eerie how so many of the stories I discussed on that program are figuring prominently in what is happening across the world now. And it explains how we reached the crises points we face today.

There are major prophetic signs unfolding across the world that we do not hear about in the mainstream media. One of the most important is the rapid and dramatic increase in the persecution of Christians.

Recently, in Sri Lanka and Nigeria, hundreds of Christians were brutally murdered while attending church services. In Burkina Faso last week, jihadists entered an Assemblies of God church during the service and executed the pastor and five men, including his son.

Few prominent leaders on the Left will even acknowledge that these are Christians being murdered and persecuted. They refer to them as “Easter worshipers.”

And after the recent fire destroyed the Notre Dame cathedral in Paris, the world press and globalist governments have worked tirelessly to convince us that it was an accident that caused the blaze, even though strong evidence suggests otherwise. Even some influential conservative media-types refuse to allow any discussion of other possibilities on their programs.

They fail to mention that in 2017, more than 800 churches and synagogues were destroyed or defaced in France alone! Hundreds, maybe thousands, of incidents of persecution against Christians and Jews happen every year across Europe and Africa. Almost none of which even receive mention in the Western media.

And almost every instance involves Muslims.

We are now beginning to see Islamic influence being exerted in the halls of Congress. Shocking, heretofore intolerable, examples of anti-Semitism and anti-Christian attitudes are being articulated by prominent leaders. Most importantly, though, they are not being challenged by the leaders on the Left.

Instead, those attitudes are being defended, and thus seconded, by the nation’s most senior and prominent Democrat leaders — and wannabes.

But you shouldn’t be surprised that this day would come. I, and others, have been sounding this warning for years. But few people in leadership seem to be listening.

(To be fair, I thank God that we currently have an administration that is taking these issues much more seriously and is quietly — and sometimes publicly — exerting pressure on other nations to actively defend their Christian and Jewish communities against these Islamic forces. It is critical that we daily pray for courage, encouragement, and inspiration for our leaders.)

In view of these developments, I have chosen to present an “Encore Presentation” of a show that I produced on September 25, 2015. It directly deals with these issues. It is eerie how so many of the stories I discussed on that program are figuring prominently in what is happening across the world now. And it explains how we reached the crises points we face today.

Here is the description of that program that I shared with you on September 25: 2015:

The refugee crisis in Europe grows uglier by the day. Mobs of angry migrants, many of whom are fleeing the Syrian civil war, are encountering resistance from the European nations they are seeking to enter.

The influx of refugees and migrants, most of whom are Muslim, threatens to overwhelm existing European abilities to cope with the human tsunami.

Peter Szijjarto, Hungary’s Foreign Minister, recently said that it is not an exaggeration that there might be as many as 35 million migrants flooding Europe and the West.

The image of 35 million angry, rioting migrants, shouting “Allahu Akbar!” and demanding free entry raises an awful question that leaders in Europe and the United States do not seem ready to address: When does a migration become an invasion?

“Hijrah” means “jihad by emigration.” The Koran teaches immigration as a way to spread Islam.

Already, the imam at Al-Aqsa Mosque on Temple Mount in Jerusalem is threatening Europe. Imam Sheikh Muhammad Ayed recently admonished his congregation, “Europe has become old and decrepit and needs human reinforcement… Soon, we will trample them underfoot… we shall conquer their countries!”

In February, ISIS threatened to send 500,000 migrants into Europe. They even published a booklet for potential jihadists with information on how to move to Libya, then from there emigrate more easily into Europe. But now, they are passing directly into Europe via Turkey.

Even though some writers have criticized European nations for resisting this flood of Muslim refugees by comparing them to the Jewish refugees prior to World War Two, the analogy is flawed. The Jews in the 1930s were fleeing those who were murdering them because they were Jews. Most of today’s refugees from Syria and other Middle Eastern nations are running from the results of Islam.

But they’re not running from Islam itself.

Instead, they’re carrying the destructive religion of Mohammed with them. They’re bringing with them the very thing that made their lives miserable in the first place – the false religion of Islam!

In 1478, Spanish monarchs Ferdinand II and Isabella I established a tribunal now commonly known as “The Spanish Inquisition.” It was a futile attempt to maintain Catholic orthodoxy by intimidation and torture.

Historians now see The Inquisition as one of the darkest chapters in human history.

Well, there’s a new religion on the scene and a new inquisition on the horizon. And it’s not happening in Europe, but right here in the United States.

The religion is Scientism, especially as it relates to man-made climate change. And the tribunal may well be a collaboration between insecure (and dishonest?) climate change scientists and power-hungry politicians.

Do you think I’m just being an alarmist? Consider this. Recently, 20 prominent climate change scientists and professionals wrote a letter to President Obama and U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch. They asked the President to utilize RICO laws to find, prosecute, and punish other scientists and organizations who do not believe as they do.

RICO stands for “Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act.” This is the law that Congress passed many years ago to fight organized crime.

In other words, these scientists are asking the government of the United States of America to launch a New Inquisition. And you just thought we lived in an “enlightened” age! Obviously, human nature remains the same.

But even more frightening is the fact that these scientists were not the first to think of this cowardly and unconstitutional ploy. A sitting U.S. Senator, Sheldon Whitehouse of Rhode Island, beat them to the sucker punch. In a Washington Post editorial, Senator Whitehouse accused the fossil fuel industry of funding research that directly contradicts conventional climate science.

Hey, forget about free speech or freedom of opinion. He thinks that anyone who doesn’t see things his way is only in it for the money. Never mind that the climate scientists who toe the elitist line clean up with grants, university tenure, publishing contracts, plum teaching positions, and mega-dollar research projects.

Peer pressure in the academic community is almost unbearable. That’s why even though huge numbers of reputable scientists do not believe in man-made climate change, you seldom hear about them. They fear for their jobs.

And they fear condemnation and ostracization by the complicit mainstream media.

Ironically, even Pope Francis, who is currently pushing man-made climate change right here in the United States, is contributing to the New Inquisition. By joining with the world’s elitists to promote this bogus catastrophe, the pope is contributing forcefully to changing world opinion on this trumped-up power grab.

The upcoming United Nations Climate Change Conference in Paris on November 30, may turn out to be a major milestone on the road to one-world government.

Remember, this is not just about climate. This is ultimately about control. If enough people buy into the false premise, they will relinquish control to international governing bodies who will then control the world’s corporations and countries through taxation and regulatory mechanisms.

Did you ever think that one-world government might actually come into existence by virtue of its ability to tax you for exhaling or drinking water?

The Apostle Paul warned that in the last days, “perilous times will come.” He could have also added “bizarre,” and “strange” to that description!

These are those times!

But, do not fear. God Himself, in one of the strongest promises given in the Bible declared that man cannot and will not change the climate on earth. He said, “While the earth remains, Seedtime and harvest, And cold and heat, And summer and winter, And day and night SHALL NOT CEASE!”

Personally, I choose to stand on the promises of the Architect of the Universe, the Creator of the earth and the heavens. If He says that man cannot change the order of things, including the climate, then I believe Him.
