Members Fuel Fight to Save Parental Rights

They’re after our kids – the judges, the bureaucrats, the internationalists, the big government elites – and they seem to think they can make better decisions for our children than we can. And they know – they know – that if they can shape the hearts and minds of this next generation, there will soon be no one left to resist them at all.

The only thing stopping them is you. Your constitutional right to direct the upbringing, education, and care of your children is all that stands between your child and the bureaucrats’ dreams-come-true. But your rights, as you know, are eroding.

That is why your membership in ParentalRights.org is so important. As always, your donation funds the only national level organization standing up to protect your parental rights to guard your child’s heart and mind for a free and secure future.

But now your membership is beneficial to you in the present, as well. That’s because every month we offer Elite Member Benefits in the form of print outs, e-books, or informative interviews to help you be the best parent you can be – and exercise your rights to the full – right now.

"Love the ID kits!" -- Joy D., NY
For only $5 a month, or a discounted $50 one-time annual fee, you will receive a code once a month to your free Elite Member Benefits download. This month’s topic is Internet Safety, featuring a video interview with Enough Is Enough’s Donna Rice Hughes, as well as some handouts and coupons to help you protect your children online.

Coming in September – only a week away – is a package on Menu Planning to help busy parents like you make the most of your budget as you provide for your children. Food may not be a “cool” or “trending” parenting topic, but it’s vitally important – a part of every day!

"Thanks so much for your help!" - Donna A., NC
What’s more, we have made our July packet on Parental Rights in the Medical Setting a permanent part of every membership as well. Join today and you will have access to all three packages in less than a week! (September package becomes available Monday, September 1.)

By joining now, you will bring these benefits directly to your inbox on a monthly basis. Even more important, you will fund the vital but costly work of ParentalRights.org as we strive to protect your rights against intrusive U.N. treaties, activist judges, and encroaching legislation and regulations. Only with your help can we persevere until the Parental Rights Amendment is adopted and your rights are secured.

"We really appreciate it. We are a large family." Jennifer P., CA
So join today, then pass the message along.

You can also join our membership contest and earn rewards for enlisting your friends to join. So what are you waiting for? Only one more month in the contest, and only one more week to get your August Elite Membership packet for a safer internet experience.

Thank you for joining with us financially as we strive to protect parental rights now and for generations to come.

Urgent: Hold the Line against CRPD

Former Republican Senator Bob Dole has been pushing his former colleagues in the Senate to support the U.N.’s Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD). He knows the treaty is about 2 votes short, and he is applying all the pressure he can to get those 2 votes.

It is imperative now more than ever that we continue to hold the line so that those last 2 votes do not cave. Your calls, emails, and visits may be the only thing giving them the backbone to stand up to the pressure and vote “No” to this treaty that would move domestic law to an international context and put your parental rights at risk.

Please take a moment today to call or email your Senators and urge them to oppose this treaty. If you already called, call them again. Or even better – there may still be time to schedule a visit while they are in your state until the end of the month.

Your message can be as simple as the following:

I am calling to urge my senator to vote “No” on ratification of the CRPD. We do not need to ratify any treaty that purports to direct our domestic policy. Only Americans should make law for Americans. Even if the content of this treaty were perfect – and I have concerns that it is deeply flawed – an international treaty is no way to pass American domestic law. Treaties should deal with how nations treat other nations, not how my government governs me or my family. Thank you.
You can find your senators’ contact information by clicking on their website links on your state page. You can get there by clicking on your state at parentalrights.org/states.

Thank you for taking time out of your day to take a vital stand for parental rights and American freedom.

'If Our Politics Become Corrupt...the Pulpit is Responsible for It' -Charles Finney

American Minute with Bill Federer
'If Our Politics Become Corrupt...the Pulpit is Responsible for It' -Charles Finney

29-year-old attorney, Charles Finney saw so many Scripture references in Blackstone's Law Commentaries that he bought a Bible.

On October 10, 1821, he decided to head into the woods near his home, saying:

"I will give my heart to God, or I never will come down from there."

After several hours, he returned to his office, later writing:

"The Holy Spirit...seemed to go through me, body and soul... Indeed it seemed to come in waves of liquid love, for I could not express it in any other way."

The next morning, at his law office, a church deacon suing a fellow-church member asked Finney about his case. Finney replied:

"I have a retainer from the Lord Jesus Christ to plead his cause, and cannot plead yours."

Finney began presenting the Gospel with a convincing lawyer's argument.

He would pray using common, colloquial language rather than in formal, traditional King's English.

Charles Finney began the tradition of an 'altar call' in his 1830 revival in Rochester, New York:

"I had found, that with the higher classes especially, the greatest obstacle to be overcome was their fear of being known as anxious inquirers. They were too proud...

Something was needed, to make the impression on them that they were expected at once to give up their hearts;

something that would call them to act, and act as publicly before the world, as they had in their sins;

something that would commit them publicly to the service of Christ...

I had called them simply to stand up in the public congregations...to bring them out from among the mass of the ungodly, to a public renunciation of their sinful ways, and a public committal of themselves to God."

Finney's revival preaching paved the way for evangelists Dwight L. Moody, Billy Sunday and Billy Graham.

Charles Finney's 1835 Revival Lectures inspired George Williams to found the YMCA-Young Men's Christian Association-in 1844.

Finney inspired William and Catherine Booth to found what would be called The Salvation Army in 1865.

Charles Finney formed the Benevolent Empire, a network of volunteer organizations to aid poor and aged with healthcare and social needs, which in 1834 had a budget rivaling the Federal Government.

Finney organized the Broadway Tabernacle in New York in 1831.

While Charles Finney was president of Oberlin College, 1851-1866, it was a station on the Underground Railroad smuggling slaves to freedom.

Under his leadership, Oberlin College granted the first college degree in the United States to a black woman, Mary Jane Patterson.

Charles Finney died AUGUST 16, 1875.

Concerning the Kingdom of God, he wrote:

"Every member must work or quit. No honorary members."

In his article, 'The Decay of Conscience' published in THE INDEPENDENT of NEW YORK, December 4, 1873, Charles Finney wrote:

"Christ crucified for the sins of the world is the Christ that the people need.

Let us rid ourselves...of neglecting to preach the law of God until the consciences of men are asleep.

Such a collapse of conscience in this land could never have existed if the Puritan element in our preaching had not in great measure fallen out..."

Finney continued:

"If immorality prevails in the land, the fault is ours in a great degree.

If there is a decay of conscience, the pulpit is responsible for it.

If the public press lacks moral discrimination, the pulpit is responsible for it.

If the church is degenerate and worldly, the pulpit is responsible for it.

If the world loses its interest in religion, the pulpit is responsible for it.

If Satan rules in our halls of legislation, the pulpit is responsible for it.

If our politics become so corrupt that the very foundations of our government are ready to fall away, the pulpit is responsible for it.

Let us not ignore this fact, my dear brethren; but let us lay it to heart, and be thoroughly awake to our responsibility in respect to the morals of this nation."

In Lecture XV 'Hindrances to Revival' (Revival Lectures, 1855), Charles Finney wrote:

"The church must take right ground in regard to politics.

Do not suppose, now, that I am going to preach a political sermon, or that I wish to have you join and get up a Christian party in politics.

No, I do not believe in that. But the time has come that Christians must vote for honest men, and take consistent ground in politics, or the Lord will curse them.

They must be honest men themselves, and instead of voting for a man because he belongs to their party, Bank or Anti-Bank, Jackson, or Anti-Jackson, they must find out whether he is honest and upright, and fit to be trusted.

They must let the world see that the church will uphold no man in office, who is known to be a knave, or an adulterer, or a Sabbath-breaker, or a gambler...

Every man can know for whom he gives his vote. And if he will give his vote only for honest men, the country will be obliged to have upright rulers..."

Finney continued:

"The church must act right or the country will be ruined.

God cannot sustain this free and blessed country, which we love and pray for, unless the church will take right ground.

Politics are a part of religion in such a country as this, and Christians must do their duty to the country as a part of their duty to God.

It seems sometimes as if the foundations of the nation were becoming rotten, and Christians seem to act as if they thought God did not see what they do in politics.

But I tell you, he does see it, and he will bless or curse this nation, according to the course they take."
