SORT BY Relevancy
We, the undersigned, are gathered here today for a historic initiative to inspire spiritual and practical action by all global faiths and people of good will everywhere to eradicate modern slavery across the world by 2020 and for all time.I n the eyes of God*, each human being is a free person, whether girl, boy, woman or man, and is destined to exist for the good of all in equality and fraternity. Modern slavery, in terms of human trafficking, forced labour and prostitution, organ trafficking, and any relationship that fails to respect the fundamental conviction that all people are equal and have the same freedom and dignity, is a crime against humanity. We pledge ourselves here today to do all in our power, within our faith communities and beyond, to work together for the freedom of all those who are enslaved and trafficked so that their future may be restored. Today we have the opportunity, awareness, wisdom, innovation and technology to achieve this human and moral imperative.

We should read and study the Bible because it is God's Word to us. The Bible is literally "God-breathed" (2 Timothy 3:16). In other words, it is God's very words to us. There are so many questions that philosophers have asked that God answers for us in Scripture. What is the purpose to life? Where did I come from? Is there life after death? How do I get to heaven? Why is the world full of evil? Why do I struggle to do good? In addition to these "big" questions, the Bible gives much practical advice in areas such as: What do I look for in a mate? How can I have a successful marriage? How can I be a good friend? How can I be a good parent? What is success and how do I achieve it? How can I change? What really matters in life? How can I live so that I do not look back with regret? How can I handle the unfair circumstances and bad events of life victoriously?
We should read and study the Bible because it is totally reliable and without error. The Bible is unique among so-called "holy" books in that it does not merely give moral teaching and say, "Trust me." Instead, we can read it for ourselves.

In March, Conservative Republican Governor Mike Pence defiantly signed Indiana's Religious Freedom Restoration Act into law. This comes on the heels of more than a majority of the states recognizing marriage for homosexual couples. The big question is: what's next? Tune in to hear our hosts answer that and other questions on this issue.
Every African-American male in this country who drives a vehicle, or has traveled by bus or plane, either knowingly or unknowingly has been the victim of racial profiling by law enforcement officials. Indeed, African-American males are disproportionately targeted, stopped, and searched by law enforcement officials based on race and gender. Those responsible for enforcement of public laws view African-American males as criminals. Unfortunately, the American justice system has condoned, supported, and in some instances encouraged such actions by law enforcement officials to stop, arrest, prosecute, and incarcerate African-American males. On the basis of race and gender, governmental officials have devised a profile of the typical criminal: black and male.
The term driving while black has been used to describe the practice of law enforcement officials to stop African-American drivers without probable cause. The practice particularly targets African-American males. African-American males are not only singled out while driving, but also while schooling, eating, running for political office, walking, banking, serving as a juror, getting a taxi, shopping, and just being black and a male. The mere fact of being black and male in America is sufficient cause for governmental and private law enforcement officials to abridge the rights of African-American males. This is not to suggest that law enforcement officers can never consider race when performing their job. Just the opposite, where a witness identifies the race and gender of a suspect, it is relevant evidence to consider in an effort to apprehend a criminal. Racial profiling, however, involves a pre-disposition held by law enforcement officers who are members of the majority, to believe that minorities, and particularly African-American males, are engaged in criminal activities; therefore, they are stopped and searched without probable cause or reasonable suspicion.

In celebration of the Relay For Life's American Cancer Society ceremony in Chesapeake on Saturday. I thought I'd do a show about a very charming young women I met during my video tapping of cancer survival stories. Crystal Bialas has been through things at such a young age that the majority of us can't even imagine, yet through it all she has been resilient! She has accomplished so much in her life time especially being she was not expected to still be here. I won't give you details I will save that for her to talk about on Monday's show don't miss this one show starts at 6:00pm US EST, join us and feel free to call in and ask Crystal some questions about her story that might you inspire someone that might be going through a similar situation.

On this week’s edition of The Majority Decision we will delve further into the Jon Jones controversy and the UFC’s decision to strip him of the UFC light heavyweight title. Did they make the right call? Was it a move that should have been made sooner? We will also talk about boxing’s biggest fight that should have taken place 4, 5, even 6 years ago. Who came out on top of the epic showdown between boxing’s last two draws and is this fight between Manny Paquiao and Floyd Mayweather the final nail in the coffin of the once beloved sweet science?
All this and more live every Sunday at 10 PM central standard time.
Once largely limited to poor women and minorities, single motherhood is now becoming the new “norm”.
This prevalence is due in part to the growing trend of children born outside marriage — a societal trend that was virtually unheard of decades ago.
About 4 out 10 children were born to unwed mothers. Nearly two-thirds are born to mothers under the age of 30.
Of all single-parent families in the U.S., single mothers make up the majority. We will go over this plus a big announcement give a way from Avenue 4311 Store for singles mothers
Many have been unfairly harrassed by police, driving whie black, sitting while black, walking while black, breathing while black, that seems to be the only offense they committed. But blackness is not a crime, and of the 250,000 stop and frisk incidents recorded by police in the first quarter of 2015, the vast majority were African Americans, who were let go without any charges. This is unconstitutional, and today's guests, from the lawfirm of Romanucci and Blandin, will explain the Federal Class Action lawsuit filed on behalf of those who have been unlawfully stopped and searched by police. Rev. Paul Jakes has organized an effort to spread the word to those who have been harrassed without cause within the last two years to enable them to be a part of the lawsuit.
Riots, Anarchy, Thuggery, Lawlessness, Chaos & Fear in Charm City. Blame something. Blame anything. Blame everything…except those who perpetrated the chaos and above all don’t take responsibility yourself. This theater of chaos has only one desired Hegelian outcome: an Orwellian nightmare from which people flee right into Huxley’s dream.
The Constitutional Republic has been usurped by the tyranny of soft despotism with a veneer of democracy, elections and the distraction of bread and circuses. It shall persist UNLESS liberty-loving people of good moral character set aside their petty differences and band together to restore Constitutional governance for a free and virtuous nation from your own community on up to the Imperial District of Corruption. Restore The Constitutional Militia of the Several States, sound money, free economies, religious and civil liberties as well as a sensible foreign policy of trade, friendship and non-interventionist defense backed up by the most powerful Navy and Marines; or watch the fascists in both parties push transnational agendas to their benefit and our demise. This is the last chance to stop those who perpetuate a hegemonic empire abroad and a fascist police state at home. To defeat the lawless hordes of Cultural Marxists, fascists, oligarchs, kleptocrats, useful idiots and their fellow travelers especially the Democrat-socialists, first you MUST CRUSH the Neocon fascist-socialists on ‘the right’. . .for liberty!

The might of the thoughts are able to determine a human beings physical well being. The majority of all human matters have their their roots solely in the might of the thoughts. Anxiety and fear continually kill thousands of human beings. Anxious thoughts have a demoralising effect in every regard.
