Gary Bauer has a terrific article in Human Events comparing government management of health care and the Gulf oil spill.  America must wake up, speak up, act up.

USA at the UN

When I was at the UN last week, several in our delegation heard Sec. of State Hillary Clinton speak to the entire Conference on the Status of Women (CSW). As you may know, we were there lobbying with a pro-life, pro-family message.  If you do not already know or suspect, the policy of the current US administration is pro-abortion as well as very weak on traditional family values and structure.  We saw firsthand at the UN how the USA is leading the charge for reproductive rights and other controversial issues.  This makes it very difficult for small, undeveloped and developing nations that have taken a stand for traditional family and life issues.  They can be pressured in many ways by nations of means to be supportive or silent to the anti-life/anti-family agenda. In the UN consensus process, silence is consent. So that you will not think that this is conservative spin on this situation, I have linked a Youtube video of Sec. Clinton testifying before a Congressional committee  last year on this administration’s foreign policy objectives regarding these issues. This administrative policy extends to the work of the US delegation to the UN. In the video, the simple answer to Congressman Smith’s question to Sec. Clinton is “yes, yes, yes” without any reservation or apology. It is this kind of hubris, resolve, and aggressive tactics that characterize the opposition. Judge for yourself:

God help us.  He is the only One who can confound the counsel of the enemy. (Isa. 19:2,3)  Pray for the pro-life/pro-family coalition that battles these issues in the UN conferences, treaty formations, and personal work with delegations. Their work goes on throughout the year, behind the scenes, unnoticed, quietly, but intensely.

U.N. …there you go again

Nothing much has changed. The radical feminists are still running rampant and attempting to dominate influence over national delegations–and they are as frustrated as ever with pro-life and pro-family groups.  The United Nations’ Conference on the Status of Women (CSW) is no different. All non-governmental organizations (NGO’s) seek to influence (lobby) delegations representing the nations of the world. Conservative NGO’s are outnumbered probably 3 or 4 to 1, yet even a little light can still dispel the darkness. Approved documents were not a conservative as we may like, but neither are they as liberal as the opposition intended them to be. Darkness cannot overcome even the dimmest of light. What if the light was not present?

People often ask why we might spend our time, resources and energy at a morally/ethically corrupt and philosophically flawed place like the United Nations. Is not the whole organization and process an exercise in futility and globalist propagandizing?  Well, that may be so from an American point of view, but one would be hard pressed to convince the smallest and frailest of nations of what may appear obvious to us. Little nations have one vote, just as big nations do.  Many small nations have experienced more freedom and equality since the U.N. has been around.  They are grateful for being recognized and brought to the table. However, with that recognition comes a greater risk of manipulation and intimidation. There were in excess of 6,000 attending the CSW. One might be surprised at the number of Christian delegates attending a conference like this; this is more likely true of the more colorful nations attending rather than the white, European ones that dominate the power structure. All in all, it only takes a tiny spark of encouragement to ignite the smallest of opposition that can block a railroad of anti-life/anti-family momentum. That is what happens at these conferences.

The Lord tells His disciples to occupy until He returns.  It is this type of ministry that shakes just enough salt to restrain corruption and shines just enough light to dispel the darkness. One could ask the Apostle Paul why he would “waste his time and resources” on the city of Corinth.  How many other places have the nations of the world converge in one place? It is a golden opportunity to share a message and virally influence the nations of the world.  A little well-placed salt and light can make a world of difference.

U.N. here we come…again

This will be my fifth trip in four years to the United Nations as we attend the Conference on the Status of Women (CSW). We will be lobbying with the International Right to Life Federation alongside several other effective pro-life and pro-family groups. There is a move this year to consolidate all the various U.N. women’s rights entities into one large U.N. agency, assuming  greater power, clout and influence.  My heart certainly goes out to women and children in countries where their basic human rights are violated because of gender discrimination, but there are some radical feminists who would take advantage of these issues to press their own radical agenda. They would like to redefine family and even redefine gender into broader terms than the way they are traditionally understood. Would you believe six genders plus their inclusiveness in the design of family!  Reproductive rights and reproductive health services, gender equality and discrimination take on new meanings when the radical left has its way.  If this is not disturbing enough, the United States delegation is leading the leftist charge under the leadership of White House appointments.  Our Executive branch exerts far reaching influence in ways unknown to rank and file American citizens. Our American elections affect the peoples of nations great and small all around the globe.

So, we go to the United Nations to make a difference–to bear witness to the truth and to encourage international delegations to stand strong against radical forces that would lead us down the path of moral and social decline.  Although I am not a fan of the United Nations and its multi-leveled corruption and globalistic goals, it is a place where salt and light is desperately needed.  It is a dark and morally bankrupt place.  Please pray for us.

I am signing the Manhattan Declaration

I encourage every Christian believer to do the same.  This is the proverbial “line in the sand” regarding pro-life, pro-marriage, pro-family, and liberty and justice issues.  It is a Martin Luther “Here I stand, I can do no other” type commitment.  Read it, pray over it as well as the commitment God would desire of you.

The director of a Planned Parenthood affiliate in Texas resigned and began praying alongside pro-lifers outside her former clinic after undergoing what she described as a “spiritual conversion.” Click and read her recent story…
