PLEASE TAKE TIME TO SEND A MESSAGE TO THE GOVERNOR TO STOP THIS INSANITY!
Flip-Flop on Church and State
East Central University, facing complaint, agrees to remove religious symbols from chapel. But after criticism, institution halts the removal.
By Scott Jaschik – July 3, 2017
“East Central University — a public institution in Ada, Okla. — has found itself immersed in a fight over separation of church and state. Last week, after receiving a complaint from Americans United for Separation of Church and State, the university agreed to remove various religious symbols on permanent display in a chapel on campus. But then the university faced strong criticism from politicians and religious leaders in Oklahoma and reversed course. The university has stopped plans to remove the religious symbols, pending a further review of the issues.
“While it is legal for a public university to have a space that can be used by students for religious worship so long as that space is not dedicated solely to that purpose, it is a violation of the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution to display religious iconography on government property,” said the letter from Americans United for Separation of Church and State to the university. “Please remove or cover the religious displays and items.”
Specifically, the letter cites the display of a Latin Cross and other crosses that are on permanent display in a way that the letter said “communicate[s] religious endorsement to members of the public by displaying religious items or messages.” The letter cited numerous court decisions about such displays.
Initially, the university said it would respond by removing the crosses. But then religious leaders started to speak out, saying it was fine for a public university to display crosses.
Randall Christy, founder of the Gospel Station Network, told The Tulsa World, “It’s time for Christian people to take a stand for our history and heritage. The idea that the cross excludes people is not true — it’s the opposite. The cross represents that all are welcome, that people of all walks of life are loved by God.”
On Friday, the university announced it was reversing course. “We moved too quickly,” said a statement from Katricia Pierson, the university’s president. “We regret not taking time to pause and thoughtfully consider the request and the results of our actions on all of the students, faculty and community members who we serve … This requires a more thoughtful and deliberate approach to the request. That will be our next step.”
Via email, Ian Smith, a lawyer for Americans United, said, “The university has said that they will be taking a closer look and thinking about things. That’s fine — we gave them 30 days to respond, and the letter only went out on the 20th. Ultimately, though, we expect that they will make the same decision since the law is definitively on our side.“
A spokesman for the organization said many public colleges have chapels in which various student religious groups put up crosses and other religious objects during religious services or events. Americans United has no objections to such displays, the spokesman said.”
“It is time for patriots to mobilize and fight back. Appeasement is not the answer.
First, contact the university’s president and politely voice your opinion. Second, contact Oklahoma Attorney General Mike Hunter and urge him to fight back against this godless scourge. And finally, the university’s alumni should immediately halt all funding. If they remove the cross from the chapel – we should remove “In God we Trust” from their bank account.”
Be sure to watch the other videos on YouTube (type in “Veritas Project” because this one is just the tip of the iceberg, and the other ones get into voting fraud and other matters. All Christians, Catholics, Jews, Evangelicals, and Hispanics NEED TO KNOW THE TRUTH.
Don’t let Hillary Clinton and her minions destroy this country and get rid of our religious freedom, our right to life, and all of the rights found in the Bill of Rights and our Constitution.

Dear Defenders of Life—Citizens for a Pro-Life Society with Pro-life Detroit Plans Major Picket of Detroit Abortion Clinic. Please make plans to attend this very important—and frankly RARE picket of a Detroit abortion center— Namely the:
Summit Medical Center at 15801 W McNichols Rd, Detroit, MI 48235 (at McNichols and Forrer St., east of Southfield Rd. (M39)
Saturday, August 20, 8am to 10am
PARKING AVAILABLE ON McNichols Ave. and also on side streets north of McNichols.
Why picket this clinic?– well, in some ways we may ask WHY NOT? It’s an abortion clinic!
However, Summit has a recent history of botched 2nd trimester abortions, kills upwards of 40 babies every week, feeds off the desperation of African American women, employs abortionist Reginald Sharpe who botched a 23 week abortion when moonlighting for abortionist Jacob Kalo, Sharpe threw aborted babies into the dumpster of his clinic in Livonia (those babies are buried at Assumption Grotto Parish cemetery), a woman died after having an abortion at his now closed-Detroit clinic, AND add to this the fact that Summit uses pro-abortion escorts and a very aggressive security guard to intimidate and thwart the life-saving efforts of sidewalk counselors!!
Let’s be there August 20th with a huge pro-life turn-out—and witness to the sanctity of human life !!
Spread the word about this– POST on your FACEBOOK page– bring signs:

When you see the Sacred Heart Seminary, located at 2701 West Chicago Boulevard, Detroit, MI., you are reminded of the late Catholic scholars and their heritage from Greece and Rome. The Collegiate Gothic architectural style, built between 1923 and 1925, has a building 600 feet in width and features a 130-foot tower, reminding you of the ambience of an English university.
Between the 1880s to the 1920s, Catholics numbering into the thousands upon thousands immigrated to Detroit from dozens of eastern European nations, including their priests, who were not put off by the largely Irish and Germany hierarchy of the Detroit diocese at the time. The diocese established numerous “ethnic” parishes to serve in their own schools and control their own finances, which was a major challenge for the Detroit diocese at first.
The massive seminary complex in the post World War I years, gained control of training of all priests in the diocese, which “ended” the ethnic seminaries, and was designed to offer training at both the high school and collegiate level to all Michigan men who wished to study for the priesthood. In the meantime, new federal immigration laws impeded the immigration of priests from Eastern Europe.
Another outstanding feature located on the campus is the story of the black Jesus. During the riots of 1967, an African American painter painted the hands, feet, and face of the white Sacred Heart of Jesus statue black. What started out as a controversial and polarizing act, became an act of faith and racial pride for some Detroit black residents. Throughout the years the landmark is now being seen as a symbol of Jesus’ love for all races. The seminary repaints the statue whenever necessary and plans to continue this practice in the future.
In May, 2016, Sacred Heart Major Seminary announced its agreement to purchase four lots west of its campus on Chicago Boulevard. The seminary will clear the land of abandoned buildings, landscape, and secure and integrate it into its present 40-acre campus. The purchase will enhance the historic neighborhood, and enable the vibrant seminary to expand its parking and plan future upgrades.
The National Academy of Sciences reinforces that babies in utero hear what their mom says, as well as different sounds and music, and their brains recognize these sounds after birth. According to research, expectant moms who coo and chat to their babies while they are pregnant may be doing more than stimulating the fetus (which results in more movement of the baby) – they may be shaping their child’s brain and helping them to adapt to life after birth.

Target CEO doesn’t care about you
The truth about Hillary Clinton and her agenda when it comes to abortion, equal pay for women, the Clinton Foundation, and corruption.
According to Joel Gehrke, a political reporter for National Review, ‘Hillary Clinton said she believes that “religious beliefs and structural biases have to be changed” to expand access to abortion.”
“The unborn person doesn’t have constitutional rights,” Clinton said, adding that “the woman’s right to make decisions” is the be all and end all when it comes to abortion.
Shosanna Weissman of the Weekly Standard was surprised that Clinton used the term “person” since most abortion advocates never refer to unborn children with any reference to their humanity. Oftentimes, when talking about a woman’s right to choose, pro-choicers will use terminology that suggests the unborn is not a person or human, but a “fetus”, or even worse “just a clump of cells”.
In May 2015, the U.S. House passed the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act to protect unborn babies 20 weeks and older from excruciating late abortions. In addition to a statement slamming House lawmakers for advancing the bill, Clinton and her staff insisted that doctors were wrong and there is no scientific evidence that babies can feel pain. There is more than adequate scientific proof that unborn babies do in fact feel pain. (ONE CAN ONLY ASSUME THAT MRS. CLINTON ONLY CONFERS WITH ABORTIONIST DOCTORS AND/OR WITH PLANNED PARENTHOOD.)
Clinton has said more taxpayer money needs to go to the Planned Parenthood abortion business and Clinton demonstrated her unyielding commitment to abortion and the Planned Parenthood abortion business, accepting their endorsement during a pro-abortion rally — saying she would be the abortion business’ president.” (ISN’T A PRESIDENT SUPPOSE TO BE THE LEADER OF “ALL” PEOPLE, NOT JUST WHO THEY PICK AND CHOOSE OR WHAT THEY INDIVIDUALLY BELIEVE? SHE IS SOUNDING MORE LIKE MARGARET SANGER EVERY DAY.)
“The first order of business for Clinton and her friends at the abortion company is to force Americans to pay for abortions with their tax dollars by attempting to overturn the Hyde Amendment, which has protected Americans from funding most all abortions since the late 1970s. Upheld by the Supreme Court, the Hyde Amendment is now a target of abortion advocates who have moved from pro-choice to pro-abortion — forcing Americans not only to accept unlimited abortions before birth but to pay for them.”
LET’S TALK ABOUT EQUAL PAY FOR WOMEN
While Senator of New York, from 2002 to 2008, the median annual salary for Mrs. Clinton’s staff for females staffers was $15,708.38 less than what was paid to men. Women earned a slightly higher median salary than men in 2005, coming in at $1.04. But in 2006, they earned 65 cents for each dollar men earned, and in 2008, they earned only 63 cents on the dollar. A staffer’s salary is wholly determined by the member of Congress for whom he or she works, although the staffer salary is capped. As a result, staffer pay can vary widely.
While Secretary of State (2009 – 2013), men were paid $16,000 more on average in annual salary than women, according to data from the Office of Personnel Management (OPM). Although the Federal government has the final say on White House staff, the total spending on salaries is determined by Congress, which has to approve the annual White House budget. Mrs. Clinton may not have had much input into men vs. women’s pay when it came to staffers such as herself, or if it was equal during the time she was Secretary of State, but is obvious that the status quo of men being paid more than women still remained the same, but having said that, the Clinton Foundation pays male executives thirty eight percent (38%) more than women. (HAS CLINTON REALLY BEEN FIGHTING FOR EQUAL PAY, AND HAS IT BEEN THROUGHOUT THE YEARS AS SHE WOULD HAVE US BELIEVE? IF SO, HOW CAN HER DECISION TO PAY HER FEMALE STAFF LESS WHILE BEING IN THE SENATE, AND IN THE CLINTON FOUNDATION BE JUSTIFIED WITH HER RHETORIC?)
LET’S TALK ABOUT CHARITY AND CORRUPTION
Between 2009 and 2012, the Clinton Foundation raised over $500 million dollars according to a review of IRS documents (2008 through 2012). A measly 15 percent of that, or $75 million, went towards programmatic grants. More than $25 million went to fund travel expenses. Nearly $110 million went toward employee salaries and benefits, and a whopping $290 million during that period — nearly 60 percent of all money raised — was classified merely as “other expenses.” If you define “actual charities not controlled by the Clintons” as “programmatic grants,” then it appears the number is 15%, with 85% staying with the foundation itself:. The Clinton Foundation may well be saving lives, but it seems odd that the costs of so many life-saving activities would be classified by the organization itself as just random, miscellaneous expenses, and that it would be refiling its tax returns for the last five years because it had improperly failed to disclose millions of dollars in donations from foreign sources while Hillary Clinton was serving as Secretary of State. The organization’s own tax filings contradict the claim of “charity”. because the IRS 990 forms submitted by the Clinton Foundation include a specific and detailed accounting of these programmatic expenses. In the chart below, you can see where only ten percent (10%) went to charity in 2013, down by five percent (5%) in previous years.
Through 2014 the foundation had raised almost $2 billion from U.S. corporations especially Wall Street; foreign governments and corporations; political donors; and various other money interests. (FOREIGN GOVERNMENTS THAT ABUSE, TORTURE AND STONE WOMEN TO DEATH – SO MUCH FOR HER CARING ABOUT WOMEN AND CHILDREN.)
In her 30+ years in politics, where was her outcry (except in words in order to get votes), where was her work to create change, and why should ANYONE believe anything she feels she has to say now in order to win the upcoming election?
