Over 1.5 million families have pledged to stop shopping at Target since it announced it would allow men to enter women’s dressing rooms and bathrooms, putting women and children in danger of sexual assault.

AFA has made it clear since the boycott began that our worries do not stem from fear of the transgender community, but rather from the very real threat that predators and voyeurs, or anyone with evil intentions, would take advantage of the Target bathroom policy to harm women and children. And they have.

Now Target has gone on public record stating they fully and wholeheartedly support the passage of the Equality Act now before Congress, meaning it supports government-sanctioned discrimination against churches and Christian business owners. Continue reading

Beaverton School District plans to roll out a NEW health and sexuality curriculum implementing Gender Identity, Gender roles, Gender Expression, “different families,” and explicit sexuality education in your child’s classroom.

Has Beaverton SB been transparent with you? 

Concerned Beaverton parents reviewed the sexually explicit curriculum, which is likely to have long term harmful effects on your children.  Examples of content include:

  • Books like “Princess Boy” and “Different Families” for “read-alouds.”
  • Gender Unicorn & Genderbread Person shown below, at elementary level
  • Oral, anal and vaginal sex introduced as early as 10 years old!
  • Advocacy for Youth 3Rs pornographic curriculum. Evaluation of this dangerous curriculum, HERE.
  • Planned Parenthood Teen Talk presentations in your high schools without parent consent
  • Referrals for Abortions & Puberty blocking hormone therapy without parents consent

TriMet recently announced its first “zero-emission” bus is ready to roll, claiming that wind-powered buses are cleaner and easier to maintain. But the reality is that electric buses are dirtier and more expensive than traditional buses.

Wind and solar energy are both known as “intermittent resources” because both kinds of energy farming have long time periods when they don’t generate any power. Unfortunately, energy can’t just be stored like other commodities—as soon as it enters the power grid, it has to travel directly to the end user. There must be a constant supply to meet demand, or customers will not receive power reliably. Continue reading

Have you ever wished you could attend a Bible conference in which Jesus is the keynote speaker? Can you imagine sitting in the front row as He explains the Scriptures? This awesome privilege was experienced by two men, not in a modern convention center, but on a dusty road outside of Jerusalem. You can read about their exclusive Bible class in Luke 24.

The men were walking back home to Emmaus [I pronounce it ee-may’-us]. They had been in Jerusalem to see Jesus, the young rabbi whom they were sure was the long-awaited Jewish Messiah. They expected Him to overthrow all the wicked kingdoms of the world and replace them with His kingdom of righteousness and justice. But all their dreams died two days earlier, on Friday, when they saw Jesus bloodied, beaten and crucified. Now that their leader was dead, there was no longer any reason to stay in Jerusalem. They had never felt so discouraged and depressed. The seven-mile journey home seemed like a million miles, and their feet never felt so heavy. Continue reading

Twentieth Century Fox presents BREAKTHROUGH, based on the incredible true story of one mother’s unfaltering love in the face of impossible odds. When Joyce Smith’s (Crissy Metz) adopted son John falls through an icy Missouri lake, all hope seems lost. But as John lies lifeless, Joyce refuses to give up. Her steadfast belief inspires those around her to continue to pray for John’s recovery, even in the face of every case history and scientific prediction.

Produced by DeVon Franklin (MIRACLES FROM HEAVEN), and directed by Roxann Dawson (HOUSE of CARDS), and adapted for the screen by Grant Nieporte (SEVEN POUNDS), from Joyce Smith’s own book, BREAKTHROUGH is an enthralling reminder that faith and love can create a mountain of hope and sometimes even a miracle.

The film is scheduled to be presented on the evening of Good Friday, April 19, at 7:00 p.m. on the public sidewalk right in front of the Planned Parenthood abortion clinic in Washington, D.C. located at 1225 4th St. NE.

“Unplanned” is based on Abby Johnson’s national bestseller which follows her personal journey from being Planned Parenthood’s youngest clinic director to embracing a pro-life/pro-women’s position while renouncing the work of Planned Parenthood relating to abortion.

The film has generated strong emotions across America and ignited a national conversation on the role of Planned Parenthood and abortion.

“Unplanned” has also faced unprecedented censorship and discrimination from avenues such as Google and Twitter along with having their ads rejected by networks like Hallmark, Bravo, The Food Network, Lifetime and many others.

Rev. Patrick Mahoney, the Director of the Christian Defense Coalition, who is sponsoring this special viewing, states;

One of the most well-known Blue Zone diets comes to us from the Mediterranean. Blue Zones are those five areas on our luscious, green Earth where citizens routinely live into their 80s, 90s, and beyond; where the people are considerably healthier than most of their US counterparts with lower rates of cancer, diabetes, and heart disease. Blue Zones are those areas that were discovered by researchers on a global map where there was more longevity than in our country. They circled those areas in blue pens for further study and hence they became “The Blue Zones.”

Ikaria, Greece is a rather remote island where modern habits and attitudes have not become entrenched. They chop, grind, simmer, and stew without the so-called modern conveniences, except perhaps a pressure cooker. They bake in outdoor wood-fired ovens with wood that is scavenged locally. And due to the nature of being an island, most everything is gathered, grown, and produced locally. Continue reading

Let’s face it – snow is a kind of novelty for us. Unless it’s December. Even then it’s not exactly common. If we should have a “white Christmas” we go nuts! It’s like “how neat is this!” We thank our lucky stars, pull on our boots, and put on our snow tires. We discreetly chuckle at those whose cars are sidelined roadside. We use the fireplace for the first time all year. We constantly look outside as though the weather has become some sort of miracle. We make thick soups and leave towels on the floor. We don’t complain about drying off little dog feet – even though it is a heck of a lot of feet! Bending over is good for us – right? All of this brings me to last week.

I decided to have some “me” time. My life had been busy of late due to a decision to part with half of my antique glass collection. It’s never an easy process. However, I managed to consign my pieces to a Portland auction house that seemed like an old friend I hadn’t seen in a long time. Continue reading

Have any of you thought that “Take Your Child to Work Day” ought to be “Take Your Child to Work for a Few Hours Day” instead? Especially for the younger ones? More than a few hours and the kid appears to be a bit bored and the parent feels distracted.

But what you both get out of it is a chance for your child to see you in a role other than parenting. Your children get to be observers on the sideline and watch the action of the game. And they see others taking you seriously. They see you interacting with adults, not just adults who are other on the playground, coaches at soccer practice or teachers at school.

At home when I invent and work through choreography for classes I teach, I invite my elementary age son to follow along. Quite simply, he responds by interfering. He likes to create his own dance moves (which I encourage) but generally he ends up rolling around on the floor under my feet and trying to break dance while I try to avoid breaking my neck.
