Do You Love Kids?

One Nation Under God


Alert: 

The OEGON House Rules Committee is scheduled to hold a hearing 

Monday, June 8, 

after 3:00 pm on HJM 23 

which “Urges United States Senate to pass binding 

legislation ratifying United Nations Convention on Rights of Child”. *


Oregonians, today, today, you need to do this (Monday, June 8th by 3pm)!

Yes, my blog title isn’t always an accurate depiction of me. I admit it. Fully, I do. When someone is messing with me, my family, my friends, my country, our God, you better believe I am gonna growl like a mamma bear. Hear me roar. Sometimes I just gotta set aside my quiet. People, change is taking place in this great nation, and most of it is not for the betterment of its people. No, quite to the contrary. The moral decay, corruption, and far-reaching governmental fingers are hurtling into our camp like poisoned arrows, lit afire. It is time to circle the wagons.


Please take a few minutes (or a lot of minutes if you have kids, love kids, and/or value kids) to check some of this information out on your own. And then pick up your phone and make a call. Or clickety-click your keyboard and send a note. Kindly, yet firmly, state your plea to the House Rules Committee members and ask them to 
reject HJM 23 and let it die in committee

Do remember to be kind, respectful, and pick only one or two issues to discuss. Write yourself a little script so you can clearly state your opinion without getting sidetracked or too emotional.

Then PRAY. Pray for God’s might protection for our families. Pray for Him to turn the hearts of our leaders heavenward. 

This is Oregon’s turn to let the voice of the parent be heard. Please do some research and find out when your state is planning to hold a similar hearing too. It is up to us to protect & maintain our parental rights so that we can raise our children in nurturing and loving homes.


=> Look at these excerpts from the United Nations Treaty & the “Rights of the Child.” It declares rights for children to be enforced against their parents


– The child shall have the right to freedom of expression; this right shall include freedom to seek, receive and impart information and ideas of all kinds, regardless of frontiers, either orally, in writing or in print, in the form of art, or through any other media of the child’s choice. (Article 13)


– States Parties recognize the rights of the child to freedom of association and to freedom of peaceful assembly. No restrictions may be placed on the exercise of these rights other than those imposed in conformity with the law and which are necessary in a democratic society in the interests of national security or public safety, public order (ordre public), the protection of public health or morals or the protection of the rights and freedoms of others. (Article 15)


– For the purpose of guaranteeing and promoting the rights set forth in the present Convention, States Parties shall render appropriate assistance to parents and legal guardians in the performance of their child-rearing responsibilities and shall ensure the development of institutions, facilities and services for the care of children. (Article 18)

Ten things you need to know about the substance of the CRC:

I know, God is in control. And He knows full-well what is going on down here. But that fact doesn’t mean we sit back and say “told ya so” or “I knew something like this would happen.” No, no, no. Like I have stated before, it is time to get off our duffers and do something. We are to be under the guise of our leaders, yes. But, we are to be under the wing of our Lord first and foremost. Standing up for the family the way God intended, that is what we are called to do. It is not an option.

If you happen to be an Oregonian, like me, here is a list of contact information. Please, get the phones ringing and/or the emails flying.

  1. Greetings!I'm here visiting from Ann Voskamp's A Holy Experience. Wow… I feel your pain with legislation like that … I'm from NEW YORK… so I KNOW what you're going through! At least I feel like I have a community here in "blog-land" … thank God I don't feel alone any more… (I just started visiting blogs a few months ago)… previously, I was thinking "where can we move to… where government isn't tyrannical… where I have representation! anyway… on a happier note… I really appreciate Ann's writings and her encouragement in the Spirit.I'm thinking of sending her my blog site to post… my main site is Calm-Energy… (what I wish I had more of 🙂 A few weeks ago, I started a new one: Humble Gratitude http://humblegratitude.blogspot.com/ a kind of gratitude photo-journal. Good luck and God be with you and this country. I think my ownership of a country is fading and finding *The Kingdom* is a new priority.Blessings ~Maria
