Conservative Judge Roy Moore wins in Republican Senate primary in Alabama despite Trump support for rival


Conservative Judge Roy Moore wins in Republican Senate primary in Alabama despite Trump support for rival

By Julio Severo
Conservative Christian jurist Roy Moore won the Alabama Republican primary runoff for U.S. Senate on Tuesday, defeating an appointed incumbent backed by President Donald Trump.
In an upset likely to rock the GOP establishment, Moore clinched victory over Sen. Luther Strange to take the GOP nomination for the seat previously held by Attorney General Jeff Sessions. Moore will face Democrat Doug Jones in a Dec. 12 special election.
Throughout the campaign, Moore argued the election was an opportunity to send a message to the “elite Washington establishment,” which spent an estimated $9 million trying to secure the nomination for Strange.
Moore was twice elected chief justice of the Alabama Supreme Court and twice removed from those duties for his conservative Christian stances. In 2003, he was removed from office because he refused a federal judge’s order to remove a Ten Commandments monument from the state courthouse lobby. Last year, he was permanently suspended because he opposed gay “marriage.”
Moore’s victory will reverberate through the national Republican Party in the battle between the party’s populist and establishment wings.
Trump, who held a headline-generating rally in Alabama last week, supported Strange with a Tweet sent before voting began Tuesday morning in Alabama: “Luther Strange has been shooting up in the Alabama polls since my endorsement. Finish the job — vote for ‘Big Luther.’” Trump tweeted support for him on multiple occasions.
On Monday evening, Vice President Mike Pence spoke to several hundred Strange supporters in Birmingham, praising Strange.
Trump and Pence made a mistake by endorsing Moore’s rival. But evangelicals, who elected Trump, did not follow his mistake.
Moore, propelled by evangelical voters and their prayers, consolidated support from a number of anti-establishment forces.
“All of Washington is watching to see what Alabama does,” Moore said at a Monday night rally in south Alabama rally attended by Breitbart director Steve Bannon, Brexit leader Nigel Farage, and “Duck Dynasty” star Phil Robertson.
Bannon told the crowd that the race was an opportunity to send a message to the “Washington elites” who “think you’re a bunch of morons.”
Even though conservative voters are electing Republicans to defeat Democrats and their socialist policies, elected Republicans are not fulfilling the conservative promises of their campaigns. Conservative voters are so displeased that they are suing the Republican Party.
“Despite voters giving Republicans the majority in the House, the Senate and now control of the White House, almost every promise made to voters over the last seven years has been broken in the U.S. Senate,” said Tony Perkins, president of Family Research Council Action.
“Judge Moore was elected because he is a promise keeper who will stand up for our Constitution,” added Perkins.
Moore is a powerful hope because different of Republicans who break their conservative promises, he stands for conservative Christian values even when it means to lose his job. He does not compromise.
Even though Trump has been elected largely by evangelicals to “drain the swamp,” his decision to endorse Moore’s rival would help fill the swamp.
Yet, conservative evangelicals showed that they are watching and that they will keep supporting conservative Christians, regardless if Trump supports them or not.
Wanting or not, now Trump will have to support Moore, after the Christian judge’s massive victory helped by evangelical voters.
I asked my supporters in Brazil to pray for Moore, and God has graciously heard our prayers. He is very necessary in Washington, to represent a faithful conservative Christian testimony.
Conservative Christian Judge Roy Moore faced powerful left-wingers, who attacked him and his conservative Christians, including me — and he won. He was opposed by Trump and Pence, and he won. With evangelicals supporting him and praying for him, he will see greater victories.
May God bless America. May God bless Moore. May God bless America through Moore. And may God grant Moore victory in the final election next December.

Right Wing Watch Defames Conservative Christian Judge Roy Moore and His Supporters


Right Wing Watch Defames Conservative Christian Judge Roy Moore and His Supporters

By Julio Severo
Right Wing Watch said on September 21, 2017, that it looked into “Roy Moore, the suspended Alabama chief justice who is now the frontrunner for his state’s open U.S. Senate seat, and discovered a host of far-right Christian nationalist activists who see Moore as their best hope for enacting their theocratic vision on a national stage.”
Right Wing Watch said that it “noticed that Moore had posted a lengthy list of endorsers on his campaign website—and it appears that no activist is too extreme for Moore to boast of his connections with.”
Among Moore’s supporters accused by Right Wing Watch are:
* Peter LaBarbera, director of Americans for Truth about Homosexuality.
* Mat Staver, chairman of the legal group Liberty Counsel and Moore’s attorney.
* Brian Brown, whose National Organization for Marriage recently endorsed Moore.
* Tim Wildmon of American Family Association.
* Matt Barber, founder of BarbWire.
* Ann Coulter.
* James Dobson, founder of Focus on the Family.
* Action superstar Chuck Norris.
* Julio Severo, a writer for BarbWire website, whom Right Wing Watch says once he called for an exorcism of the White House after an American Indian man speaking at a bisexual community briefing infested it with “homosexual spirits.”
The complete list of names blacklisted by Right Wing Watch is here. (Right Wing Watch’s defamation was reproduced in the atheist website Brewminate in its piece “Roy Moore’s Crazy Cast of Endorsements.”)
Not only all these names are in Right Wing Watch’s blacklist, but they have a special place in this blacklist. My place is here.
I am not sad that a powerful left-wing group in the U.S. has blacklisted me. I would be sad if they praised me.
Who is Right Wing Watch, the accuser?
Writing in BarbWire (where I am a contributor too), Rob Pue of Wisconsin Christian News said that it is the “professed goal” of Right Wing Watch “to persecute and spread false information about … Christian, pro-family organizations.”
According to WND, People for the American Way (PFAW) is “an atheist socialist organization which, through publications like its ‘Right Wing Watch,’ dedicates itself to the destruction of conservatives in general.”
According to its website, Right Wing Watch has a special mission to attack conservatives opposed to the gay agenda, abortion and Muslim ideology.
Yet, Citizens for Trump, a conservative organization supporting Trump’s conservative stances, has supported Judge Roy Moore and his supporters, including me and other names blacklisted by Right Wing Watch because of our endorsement of Moore. To see my name and the names of other conservatives supporting Moore in Citizens for Trump’s website, click here.
Who is Roy Moore?
He is staunchly and publicly an evangelical Christian. He is a former Alabama Supreme Court Justice. He is a conservative famous for his advocacy for the Ten Commandments and traditional marriage that has enraged the left. He fought hard to keep Alabama from being forced to accept gay “marriage.”
Last year, Moore shared, in his Facebook, my conservative article against homosexual propaganda.
I have very been honored to be invited to add my name as a supporter of Judge Roy Moore, and I gladly do it, because of his extraordinary conservative and Christian qualities. It is so hard to find excellent conservative Christian candidates and when you find one, you cannot afford to lose the opportunity to support him, even when the Left attacks you for it.

Therapy for individuals seeking exit from homosexual behavior is approved in Brazil and media misleadingly alleges that court ruled homosexuality is a disease


Therapy for individuals seeking exit from homosexual behavior is approved in Brazil and media misleadingly alleges that court ruled homosexuality is a disease

By Julio Severo
A Brazilian judge has ruled that psychologists are free to help individuals seeking exit from homosexual behavior.
Even though the judge’s decision does not say that homosexuality is a “disease” and that there is medical healing or cure, the U.S. media, which has refused to publish his decision, has used exactly such non-existent terms in the text.
Brasília-based Judge Waldemar Claudio de Carvalho’s decision overruled a 1999 resolution from the Federal Council of Psychology in Brazil (Brazilian Psychology Association) which prohibited psychologists from treating the homosexual condition of their clients.
The 1999 draconian resolution says:
It establishes norms of conduct for psychologists in regard to the subject of Sexual Orientation.
WHEREAS, homosexuality is not a disease, disturbance or perversion;
WHEREAS, Psychology can and should contribute through its knowledge to clarify the subjects of sexuality, helping to overcome prejudices and discriminations;
It determines:
Article 2: Psychologists should contribute, through their knowledge, to a reflection on prejudice and to the extinction of discrimination and stigmatizations against those demonstrating homoerotic behaviors or practices.
Article 3: Psychologists shall not use any action for making homoerotic behaviors or practices pathological, nor shall they use coercion to direct homosexuals to unsolicited treatments.
Sole paragraph: Psychologists shall not collaborate with events and services proposing treatment and cures of homosexualities.
Article 4: Psychologists shall not offer their opinions, nor will they participate in public pronouncements, in the media, with a view to reinforcing existing social prejudices in regard to homosexuals as sufferers of psychic disorders.
Psychologists are forbidden to express even their views about a hope for individuals seeking exit from homosexual behavior.
Yet, they are not forbidden to collaborate with communist events. Rogério Giannini, the president of the Federal Council of Psychology, attended “I Foro Internacional de Psicología, Violencia y Operaciones Psicológicas” (First International Forum of Psychology, Violence and Psychologic Operations) in Venezuela on June 11-15, 2017, whose stated purpose was “to address the violence that right-wing groups have intended to establish in Venezuela.”
Rogério Giannini and Nicolás Maduro
Communist dictator Nicolás Maduro was himself present in the event. Giannini saw no problem to lend his support to the communist congress of psychology to fight right-wing groups. And his Federal Council of Psychology saw no problem to pay him thousands in the Brazilian currency for helping him to travel and take part in the communist event.
The international media, especially the U.S. media, did not condemn Giannini’s participation in the communist event. But when communist-minded Giannini expressed his view against the judge’s injunction allowing psychologists to treat individuals seeking exit from homosexual behavior, the international media praised him and quoted him as saying, “No way to cure what is not a disease,” adding: “It is not a serious, academic debate, it is a debate connected to religious or conservative positions.”
Contrary to Giannini’s allegations, the judge’s injunction does advocate any “gay cure.”
Besides, communist-minded Giannini treated debate disagreeing with his communist views as “not serious, not academic” — which is a mindset typical of communists. He also treated Christian and conservative positions as stances of second-class citizens, as if only communists were real academicians and had monopoly on the academic debate.
Giannini’s far-left views should be condemned by all the U.S. media.
What does the judge’s injunction say?
It “determines that the Federal Council of Psychology does not interpret [its resolution] to hinder psychologists from promoting studies or giving professional care, in a private setting, regarding to sexual (re) orientation, thereby ensuring to them full scientific freedom about the subject, with no censorship or prior permission from the Federal Council of Psychology.”
Full freedom to offer professional care without any censorship. Is it too much? Obviously, it is not. But such freedom causes nightmares in communist-minded individuals, who would prefer to travel to Venezuela to lend their support to a “perfect” government that does not offer full freedom and, instead, offers full censorship.
The injunction became possible because Judge Waldemar Claudio de Carvalho approved an appeal put forward by Rozangela Justino, an evangelical Christian and psychologist who was banned from practicing after offering therapy for individuals seeking exit from homosexual behavior.
Psychology is not a science. It is one of the most subjective fields of human study. Every individual, whether a psychologist or not, has views colored by his own ideological preferences, whether political or religious. Far-left-wing individuals and individuals practicing witchcraft are very open to homosexuality and very hostile to Christianity.
If an individual seeks medical care for a broken leg, every physician attending him will diagnose him with a broken leg, irrespective of ideological preferences of physician or patient. This is science.
Yet, psychologists as Giannini diagnose Christians and conservatives as unfit for debate, because their personal views are colored by the far-left-wing ideology. Psychologists with a political background of socialism and with a religious background of witchcraft will always oppose Christians and support homosexuality. They would declare Maduro fully fit for debate. This is not science. This is sheer subjectivity.
Similarly, conservative and Christian psychologists have the same right to diagnose communist-minded psychologists as unfit for debate.
Positive points in the judge’s injunction:
* It grants full freedom to offer professional care.
* It condemns censorship.
Negative point:
* It agrees with the World Health Organization’s stance that “homosexuality is a natural variation of the human sexuality.”
Different from the subjective stance of the Federal Council of Psychology, headed by communist-minded Rogério Giannini, that says that “homosexuality is not a disease, disturbance or perversion,” the Christian stance, based on the Bible, is that homosexuality is a perversion causing diseases and disturbances. Reality is enough to prove it and disprove communist theories.
In the conflict of opposing subjective views, the Federal Council of Psychology has allowed communist involvement of its psychologists, including by funding their trips to communist events, but has banned Christian involvement of its psychologists.
In this unfair treatment, the U.S. media has sided with communists to attack Christian and conservative psychologists in Brazil.
Even Facebook has taken a stand against the judge’s injunction, by siding with communists and calling homosexuality “love.” Facebook said in its official Brazilian page:
“On Facebook, we believe in equality. We also believe that love does not need healing.”
Facebook treated homosexuality as a cage with no exit, with a deceiving propaganda calling the homosexual perversion “love.” Actually, there is no cure for perversion. Just deliverance.
Communist-minded individuals are outraged by the judge’s injunction. They are angered that someone is trying to help people to exit the cage.
Rightly, Silas Malafaia, a prominent televangelist and Assemblies of God minister in Brazil, has said in a video that “it is not the therapist, but the patient who decides what he wants.” He also said that therapist cannot be forbidden from serving a patient seeking help. Malafaia has a degree in psychology.
If the Federal Council of Psychology keeps behaving as the communist Venezuela and if Giannini keeps behaving as Maduro, Christian psychologists will have to leave this dictatorship to help homosexuals who seek help in the church. For thousands of years, when there was no psychology, the Christian church helped deliver people from the homosexual sin. Even Apostle Paul tells of individuals delivered from the homosexual prison by the power of the Holy Spirit. He said:
“Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who practice homosexuality, nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. AND SUCH WERE SOME OF YOU. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.” (1 Corinthians 6:9-11 ESV)
Men who were involved in the homosexual behavior in the past and repented from it when they accepted Jesus “were washed, sanctified and justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit.” No psychology involved.
Even today, Holy Spirit-filled Christians with no degree in the subjective field of psychology have helped homosexuals, thieves, adulterers, liars, swindlers, etc.
The Venezuelan-styled psychology is insufficient to hinder individuals from seeking and finding help in churches that do what Jesus did: to preach the Gospel, heal the sick and expel demons.
Real, Spirit-filled Christianity has had no need of psychology for 2,000 years to help individuals oppressed by homosexuality. But this is not the issue regarding Christian psychologists and their associations. The issue is freedom and censorship.
Communist-minded individuals are extremely biased, anti-Christian, against full freedom and, of course, advocates of censorship. If Christians cannot be psychologists, why can a communist-minded individual head a psychological association?

Conservative Christians Endorse Roy Moore for U.S. Senate


Conservative Christians Endorse Roy Moore for U.S. Senate

By Julio Severo
Alabama, one of the most conservative states, will hold a special election for the United States Senate on December 12, 2017, which will decide its conservative course.
Famous conservative Christians are, in a list of endorsements, supporting the staunchly and publicly Christian former Alabama Supreme Court Justice Roy Moore, a conservative famous for his advocacy for the Ten Commandments and traditional marriage that has enraged the left. He fought hard to keep Alabama from being forced to accept gay “marriage.”
The list of endorsements of Moore includes noted Christian leader and adviser to four presidents Dr. James Dobson, and martial arts champion and action movie superstar Chuck Norris.
“It is my pleasure to be among the many solid conservatives who are supporting Judge Roy Moore’s candidacy for the United States Senate,” Dobson, founder of Focus on the Family, said. “I’ve known Judge Moore for over 25 years, and I know him to be a man of proven character and integrity. I often ask God to raise up men and women of faith who will govern the nation with biblical wisdom. I believe Judge Moore to be such a man for this time.”
Dobson said that as a “private individual, I am honored to endorse Roy Moore for the United States Senate, and pray that his election will be the start of a new generation of leaders who will return this nation to the constitutional principles upon which it was founded.”
In his endorsement, Chuck Norris said of Moore: “He’s tough, tested and has a spine of steel. The Washington establishment knows they won’t be able to count on him, but Alabama voters can.”
Norris said Moore “has never backed down from standing for what is right, and that’s exactly what he’ll do in the U.S. Senate.”
“That’s why the Washington establishment is spending millions trying to defeat Judge Moore,” he said.
“Alabama needs Judge Moore there doing what he’s always done: fighting to protect our constitutional rights to life, religious liberty, and the freedom to protect ourselves and our families. And he will always put principle over politics,” Norris said in a statement released by the Moore campaign.
Other names in the endorsement list are: Mike Huckabee, former Gov. of Arkansas; Sean Hannity, host, The Sean Hannity Show; Brian Brown, President, National Organization for Marriage; Sarah Palin, former GOP Vice Presidential Nominee, former Gov. of Alaska; Steve Bannon, 2016 Trump Campaign Manager, former Chief Strategist to President Trump; Matt Barber, founder, Editor-in-Chief, BarbWire.com; Julio Severo, author of Prophetic Prayers; and many other names.
Yes, I have also been honored to be invited to add my name as a supporter of Judge Roy Moore, and I gladly do it, because of his extraordinary conservative and Christian qualities. It is so hard to find excellent conservative Christian candidates and when you find one, you cannot afford to lose the opportunity to support him.
Last year, Moore shared, in his Facebook, my conservative article against homosexual propaganda.
To see the complete list of endorsements of Moore, click on this link.
Moore was elected chief justice in Alabama, then removed by a federal court after he installed a Ten Commandments monument in the state judicial building. He then was re-elected to the same position but removed as the result of a politically motivated campaign by left-wing opponents of his defense for traditional marriage and his opposition to gay “marriage.”
He would be a powerful conservative voice in the U.S. Senate, since he’s not known for compromising his beliefs. He contends America needs to return to the values of the Bible, declares Islam is dangerous, believes homosexuality should not be welcome in the military and maintains that marriage is the union of a man and a woman.
Charisma, the biggest Pentecostal website in the world, said, “Judge Roy Moore is the real deal, a Bible-believing Christian and a constitutional originalist who lives the values he campaigns on and will not be intimidated or bought by the Washington establishment. We urge all our conservative-populist friends in Alabama to unite behind Roy Moore, and all our readers across the country to support his campaign.”
Breitbart, headed by former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon, has made electing Moore a priority.
Yet, President Trump has chosen to support a Moore opponent, Luther Strange, who is backed by the Washington establishment.
