With the swelling numbers of immigrants in the 1880's and 1890's admission decisions were made by the Immigration Service. The law required medical inspection of immigrants by the United States Public Health Service to issue a medical certificate to those who suffered from a "loathsome or a dangerous contagious disease. Exclusion of those diagnosed with infectious diseases such as tuberculosis, venereal disease,and trachoma was mandatory.The goal was to prevent the entrance of undesirable people—those "who would not make good citizens". In the context of industrial-era America, immigrants who would wear out prematurely, requiring care and maintenance rather than supplying manpower, would not make "good" citizens. The procedure was intimidating, and, indeed, between 1891 and 1930 nearly 80,000 immigrants were barred at the nation's doors for diseases or defects.
The term ‘homosexuality’ is not found in the Bible. Nor is the term ‘lesbian’. The absence of these modern day terms in scripture does not indicate that scripture is silent regarding this issue. The Bible does not address orientation but the Bible very clearly and unequivocally addresses behavior. Same sex is condemned in the Pentateuch and also again in the New Testament. The Apostle Paul strongly warned about homosexual behavior, even listing it as one of those sins that, if not confessed and cleansed by the sacrifice of Christ, would certainly lead one to hell. (1) God’s plan from the very beginning was that sexual relations should be between one man and one woman involved in a monogamous relationship that would last a lifetime. God’s condemnation of sexual activity outside of these parameters must be taken very seriously. Those involved in homosexual behavior or adulterous behavior in the Old Testament were subject to the punishment of death. The instructions were very specific and unarguable: “Do not lie with a man as one lies with a woman, that is detestable.” (2) The penalty for such behavior was clearly spelled out: “If a man lies with a man as one lies with a woman, both have done what is detestable. They must be put to death’. (3) The severity of the law of the Old Testament is now redundant due to the fact that Christ made the ultimate sacrifice by which he made available an abundant grace to all who would believe in him and repent of their sins.
Without any reputable evidence, the entertainment culture, uneducated media, and sexual activists have seduced today's teenagers, in particular, to believe that people are born homosexual.However, science has found no biological basis for homosexuality, bisexuality, or transsexuality. Study after study has found the “LGBT” lifestyle to be unhealthy, with the highest rate of sexually-transmitted diseases,and higher cancer rates and earlier deaths. The fact that people are not born homosexual matters because the entire fiber of our society is impacted -- for good or for ill. There is no "gay gene" -- so homosexuality is not biologically based. The only human genders are male (if you inherited a "Y" chromosome from your father) and female (if you did not inherit a "Y" chromosome from him) -- so homosexuality is not a new "gender." People inherit unchangeable characteristics like their race and ethnicity, but homosexuality is not inherited. Science and biology confirm this, and thousands of former "gays and lesbians" who have changed their behavior also prove this fact. Therefore, homosexuality is not a "civil right" (a supreme law punishing those who disagree) for marriage or anything else. Ironically, the "LGBT" (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender) "civil rights" laws have severely infringed upon the constitutional rights and religious freedom of those who disagree, punishing dissent.
Yes, correct- FAMILY life with involved,caring and loving parents, and some control on his activities of so-called entertainment influences, and of course some religious morals would certainly been beneficial factors!
A small but contributing factor was the "mixed race" of the mentally mixed up killer.It really bothered him that he was 1/2 and 1/2! I have 4 married adult children and it was a commitment of mine to have my children date potential life long mates of the same religion and same nationality! There are just too many "un-balanced" factors in the different religions, and vast differences in cultures to so easily say that-"Sure date and marry anyone." As the politically correct community says anyone who insists on (same religion-same ethnicity) must be racist bigots! Of course,the killer should never have been able to buy guns-if a background check showed his mental deficiencies-and we all know-a permit to carry in Calif. could have defended or retaliated with deadly force!
Do not vote for THE LEADER OF THE FREE WORLD PRESIDENT-(as you did for Obama-CUZ HE'S BLACK) and vote for a woman-any woman- with no solid credentials and accomplishments-just to finally have a female president (small "p" on purpose)! THINK AND REASON AND EVALUATE HOW YOUR VOTE WILL AFFECT THE RISE AND/OR FALL OF AMERICA!
To claim to BE gay-is to declare that you have CHOSEN to "be with" (have sex) with a same gender person. So, now we ask-are they married? Any sex outside of marriage is just wrong,immoral,and frowned upon by a majority of Americans! Maybe we all wouldn't be so disgusted and appalled if Mr. Sam had married his "partner" and the kiss was with his husband/wife ! Oh, and the- "We want equality" claim by homosexual activists? Point-All people should be treated equally, but it is very wrong to imply that all BEHAVIORS should be treated equally! There are many of us who are disgusted and appalled at the positive pundit reaction to "the kiss" by Michael Sam! The vilification of Tim Tebow for his BEHAVIOR is a perfect example of the media and homosexual activists choosing to denigrate one and glorify the other! Do I hear"Christian" boo and "gay" yea! Homosexual activists are correct that equal treatment under the law is a "right",but they then misapply it. Instead of applying equal treatment to people, they misapply “equality” to BEHAVIORS!
Quit having sex without marriage!
A person of "Faith" means that they believe in God as The Creator, and that His Son, Jesus, came to earth and lived and died as a human. But with His Divinity,His suffering took on the penalty for all who sin,therefore, He was resurrected to live and walk among witnesses to prove his defeat of death. No person of 'FAITH" who believes and accepts all of this, would support lying,cheating,stealing,and killing as Hillary has committed for years and years- compiling reams of documents creating this legacy!
Jeb is grabbing on to the "Common core" cuz he knows that the Education lemmings will follow! Do not even THINK of a establishment Repub! America needs and must have a turn around with a strong conservative and- Yes-Christian leader!
You may think I am crazy-but I trust God and His overseeing of the leaders of the world! There may be a trend here with changes in Congress!
