PRINCIPLE – the source or origin of anything;
a general truth, a truth so broad and sweeping that
many other truths can be considered offshoots of it
PRAYER – I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers,
intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; for kings, and
for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life
in all godliness and honesty. For this is good and acceptable in the sight
of God our Saviour; Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto
the knowledge of the truth. I Tim 2:1-4

Community Marriage Policy. God is moving in America to strengthen marriage
and reduce divorce. Community Marriage Policies are now in place in 170 cities
nationwide. An independent research firm compared the divorce rates in 131 cities
for the three years before the policy was implemented to the rates for three or more
years after its implementation. Divorce rates dropped in 70% of those communities.
Nine cities reported a drop of more than 50% and 27 cities showed declines of 20%
or more. A Community Marriage Policy for Alamogordo has been in effect since Sep 2001.
A Community Marriage Policy for Albuquerque was set aside about a year and a half ago.
Contact firstname.lastname@example.org if your church would be interested in signing a Community Marriage Policy. www.abpnews.com/abpnews/story.cfm?newsId=3755

NM Legislation Special Session. Here are some priorities from this session on "taxes."
Bills on "sex offenders" - HB2, HB3, HB4, HB5, HB6, HB8 (kidnapping),
HB9, HB10, HB11, HB12, SB4, SB6, SB7, SB8, SB11, SB12, SB13
Civil Rights - HJM1, SJM4
Your taxes are used to fund this special session on "tax reform."
Contact your Representative - http://legis.state.nm.us/senate.asp
Contact your Senator - http://legis.state.nm.us/senate.asp
Sexually oriented businesses (SOBs) fan the flames and then we need
laws to control the offenders. Why not make laws against the SOBs
in the first place? www.ccv.org/What_is_a_Sexually_Oriented_Business.htm
Legislative bodies - villages, cities, townships, counties - not only have the right but have the duty to protect its citizens from these harmful secondary effects. Such legislative protection can be passed in the form of zoning ordinances, licensing procedures, permit requirements and operational regulations. All these legislative tools are needed to make it extremely unattractive for SOBs to open in a community.
Contact email@example.com if you can offer selected legislators some help in bill review and other administrative tasks.

FCC relaxes TV rules on use of f-word
By Chris Baker, Oct 10, 2003
David H. Solomon, chief of the FCC's enforcement bureau, said in the ruling that Bono used the vulgarity as an adjective or to emphasize an exclamation and that "the use of specific words, including expletives or other 'four-letter words' does not render material obscene." Laura Mahaney, director of corporate and entertainment affairs for the Parents Television Council, has vowed an appeal. "The ruling is outrageous. It's splitting hairs," she said. Activists said they fear the FCC's ruling will allow the f-word and other vulgarities to become more common in prime-time television. www.parentstv.org
Do not be deceived. These words are not meaningless. I personally received military discipline from the commanding general of the AF Safety Center, Kirtland AFB, about six years ago for transcribing the dictionary definition of the f-word after listening to months of the Division Chief Colonel use this word "as an adjective or to emphasize an exclamation." Interesting how the definition can be offensive yet the word itself is not supposed to be offensive. The Division Chief was also admonished to clean up his language.
* Write the sponsors of programs that use offensive language.
* Write the FCC and ask them to enforce obscenity rules.
* Monitor the TV for your children or turn it off.
