Our Message: All Lives Matter, Especially The Unborn
If Black Lives Mattered, You’d Protest at Abortion Clinics
While we abhor the unlawful murder of George Floyd, we want to call out the hypocrisy that some black lives matter more than others. Remember retired police officer David Dorn?
June 12th, Friday, 2:00pm - 6:00pm Lakeside Park
4601 Lakeside Drive, Dallas 75205
Bring Another View to the Highland Park March for George Floyd & Black Lives Matter. We believe all lives matter.
From Their Flyer:
“Come join us in unity for the unlawful brutal murder of brother George Floyd. No senseless violence will be tolerated. Food & drinks will be provided.
June 12th, Friday, 2:00pm - 6:00pm Lakeside Park
4601 Lakeside Drive, Highland Park TX 75205"
What to expect:
Gather at the corner of Lakeside Drive and Beverly Drive and march south to Armstrong Parkway. If it’s like the protest that I attended with Pastor Stephen Broden in University Park last Saturday, you will see lots of signs that say, “We Support Black Lives”, “Black Lives Matter”, “Open Your $$/Purse”, “Check Your White Privilege”, and “Defund the Police”. Like the march on last Saturday, you may be asked to kneel for George Floyd; Pastor Broden and I did not kneel then, nor will we kneel on Friday. We only kneel for Jesus Christ and we stand for black babies.

They had around 400 at the Saturday protest/march in University Park. We had 2. Wonder how many we can muster this Friday? Let me know if you can join us.
Many websites now have a slogan on their home page stating that “Black Lives Matter.’’ Of course black lives matter; yet, don’t white lives, red lives, yellow lives, and blue lives matter too? By blue lives, I mean our men and women dressed in blue fighting to protect our cities. Why should black lives matter more than white lives, red lives, yellow lives, and blue lives? Don’t all lives matter? Aren’t all lives equally valuable? Don’t we want to live in a society where no one sees skin color? Don’t we want to live in a society where no one mentions skin color because the color of your skin shouldn’t matter? (Even though the woke folk tell us that colorblindness is a bad thing now - it didn’t used to be.)
The progressive leftists talk a lot about how racist the right-wing conservatives are, but what do they really mean when they call someone a racist?? You will find that their definition of racism basically means racially prejudiced or discriminatory; yet, they are the ones who point out skin color, not the conservatives. In a society where true equality exists, skin color wouldn’t matter because equality has nothing to do with skin color, hair color, or even ethnicity. Yet, as long as the progressives keep talking about skin color and racism, it will continue to be an issue. Oh wait, maybe they want it to be an issue.
Lest anyone misunderstand my point, I do acknowledge that racist people exist. They always have; they always will. Unfortunately, there will always be white people who hate black people because of their skin color. There will always be black people who hate white people because of their skin color. However, the vast majority of people in America are not racists anymore than most Americans are hate filled rioters and looters.
So should black lives matter more than yellow, red, white, or blue lives? I believe all lives matter, but the tide is turning faster than you can imagine and we are being told to accept that some lives matter more than others. Or as the commandant at the end of the book, Animal Farm, said “all animals are equal but some animals are more equal than others.”
I want to start with a little demonstration that some of you may have seen at the Rally in Frisco on Tuesday (Select someone, show hypodermic)
Now, I’ve got a hypodermic needle here, and The question I have for you today is: “do I, as an individual, have the authority to plunge this needle into this man’s arm?” NO!!
Well, if I AS AN INDIVIDUAL don’t have the authority to plunge this needle into this man’s arm, can I elect someone to public office and give them the authority to plunge this needle into this man’s arm? OR ANY NEEDLE INTO ANYONE’S ARM? NO!!
SO THE QUESTION IS: WHY CANNOT I NOT DO THAT? Why Can I NOT elect someone to public office and give them the authority to plunge any needle into anybody’s arm?
The answer is THIS: I CANNOT GIVE WHAT I DO NOT POSSESS!
If I, AS AN INDIVIDUAL, do NOT possess the authority to plunge this needle into this man’s arm, I CANNOT elect someone to public office and give them the authority to plunge any needle into anybody’s arm! I CANNOT GIVE WHAT I DO NOT POSSESS!
Can I elect Senator Bob Hall, whom we love, and delegate to him the authority to give someone else the authority to plunge a needle into anyone’s arm? NO! Can I elect Judge Clay Jenkins or Governor Abbott and give them the authority to give to someone else the authority to plunge a needle into anyone’s arm? NO!
This is a hard truth, but not even in a time of crisis, be it real or perceived or manufactured, can I delegate an authority that I do not have as an individual!!! When AG Bill Barr said, “the Constitution is not suspended in times of crisis”, he was saying that our God given rights are not suspended in times of crisis!
But wait! What happened to let the law of legitimate, delegated authority get turned on its head? …… I’ll tell you what happened……
Under the spells of fear and panic, we naively allowed our governing bodies to create, by fiat, these so called Emergency Powers Acts at multiple levels of government, giving the autocrats in DC, Austin, and Dallas County unlimited, unchecked, unconstitutional, unimaginable powers to stick it to us whenever and however they please. The Emergency Powers Acts must be stopped.
Clay Jenkins, Governor Abbott, and all the unelected bureaucrats and Strike Forces do not have legitimately delegated authority to make me close my business, mask my face, stop singing, take a vaccine , place a chip in me, put a tattoo on me, or even sign up for a contact tracing app.
And how do I know this? I know this because the Bible tells me so. Authority comes from God and God alone! And when it comes to the ideas about authority, let me tell you this:
There’s only 2 ideas in the world -. God’s and everybody else’s. And when the 2 disagree, everybody else is wrong!
And just what does God say? He says: I have the God-given right to my life, my health, and my body. (Not a baby’s body inside of me, but my body.)
So, If I can’t do something to you as an individual, then I cannot elect someone to public office and give them the power to do that something either.
SO I WANT YOU TO TELL CLAY JENKINS AND GOVERNOR ABBOTT AND HIS STRIKE FORCE THIS:
