NAACP Vows More Protests On NC School Board Policy

North Carolina NAACP leaders say four arrests over a new diversity policy in the state's largest school district are only the beginning.

The group's president said at a news conference Wednesday the civil rights organization plans more protests, along with marches, workshops and community meetings.

The Rev. William Barber was one of four demonstrators arrested Tuesday at a meeting of the Wake County school board.

They face second-degree trespassing charges. NAACP attorney Al McSurely says the four want a trial and a chance to subpoena school board members.

The activists say the board will re-segregate county schools by scrapping a busing program that tried to achieve socioecnomic balance.

A call to the school board was not immediately returned.

    Disagreeing with YOU is not scoffing GOD's word.I suppose you know it all,but that's not what Paul taught.If you love your enemey you are a child of GOD.This you cannot separate from loving the world. I am not pro-choice,support hetero marriage & believe Jesus is the only way to Salvation..Nothing in my post suggests otherwise except my not acknowledging your info at times.Blind statements from unworthy reports?The FULL Gospel of Christ teaches to try every spirit.Any lies,falsification and twisting gossip to defend or promote GOD"S word I take as man's effort to get others to agree.GOD"S Word is to be administered by LOVE and that fellow is the fullness of His mission.The scriptures of edification and correction are words to Edify and Build the Body of Christ:they are not laws to which the world is to live by,although they a good. To as many as led by the Spirit they are the Sons of GOD.Can you not digest the meat of the Word or would you as Jefferson refer to Paul's teachings as dung.

    whatever the case regarding Roe, her intentions knowing abortion was wrong is all that matters and that's what the scoffer you are should keep in mind. It seems to me that you really don't know the full gospel or the bible. Gods word is for edification, correction (which you avoid to accept) as well as love and acknowledging his principles, obeying his commandments as you do so often and separating ourselves from the cares of this world by being separate from this world. The world hates God and his son Jesus because he said so. If you love this world you're an enemy of God. You who seem to stand for "pro-choice" and accept worldly values or its code of ethics instead of Gods complete FULL gospel, have no leg to stand on and will perish into everlasting fire and brimstone because Jesus told every believer that you can only enter heaven if you repent daily on your sins, keep yourselves spotless & blameless, live holy and separate from the world and its views and surrender to him totally

    I do remember 1994 McCorvey being baptized in a pool as it was aired on TV.She converted to Christianity and expressed remorse in her part in the Supreme Court decision and has worked as part of the pro-life movement.She had her first child 1965.At 19,she had a child by different man;which she placed for adoption.She had her third child,the one at the center of Roe v. Wade case,at 21 by another man.In her 1994 autobiography,I Am Roe(first book),McCorvey wrote of her sexuality.For many years she had lived quietly in Texas with her long-time partner,Gonzales."We're not like other lesbians,going to bars,"she said in a NY TIMES interview."We're lesbians together.We're homers."In 1998 She affirmed her position departing from Protestant to(Paganism according to USCFN)Catholicism.LOL AND LOL again.Try getting focused on Truth.You friend have no defense for some of your comments and the Gospel doesn't need you to defend it.God's word is based upon LOVE and integrity,not half/truths you post.

    I cannot imagine why that you would think I support ABORTION?No where in my post do I call abortion "okay" for any reason.The bible teaches us that a child should not pay for the sins of the parent. You evidiently have not read my post,which is no surprise,You have a running record for for apparently post babbling> "LOL".Let me repeat a quote from Sarah Palin on Creation.,"Oh, I think it should be taught as an accepted principle. And, as you know, I say that also as the daughter of a school teacher, a science teacher, who has really instilled in me a respect for science. It should be taught in our schools. And I won’t deny that I see the hand of God in this beautiful creation that is Earth. But that is not part of the state policy or a local curriculum in a school district. Science should be taught in science class.” Do a search for Alaskan Legislation on Palin opted out on Abortion Bill.Or are you afraid of the truth.What in my info is wrong.Try RTL web page.Then deny the facts.Heresy.

    You obviously support the killing of unborn innocent babies and you and millions of others associated will answer to God on Judgment Day. Paint it all up like you want to and distort the truth. Abortion is wrong as well as your much of your information. Palin has recently rekindled her relationship with God and intends to do the right thing which is being Pro-Life. Realizing how sick and twisted this world and it's scholars & professors convey issues relating to creation, God, science and learning right from wrong, The only thing that should be taught from that standpoint within our schools, colleges and homes should be the bible. Gods Holy Word has all the answers to lifes questions period. But, men & women these days act like their own god and are disobedient in many ways towards how God wants us to live our lives here on earth. That is the truth and if you love God, he says, you'll obey him and his commandments written throughout the bible. Remember the bible came from his spirit!

    Alaska is one of the most abortion lienient States in the Union.Palin opted out to make some very crucial changes for (by her own words) "would not have enough support".She felt it would be "wasting time as oil industry matters were more important. "MENS HEARTS WILL FAIL THEM FOR FEAR".Even thought we have 'politicians' that speak great swelling words",they don't have courage.Palin doesn't want FEDERAL funding for "elective abortions" ,but implies it's a State's issue.Children in the state of Alaska as young as 9 years old can have abortions if they were to become pregnant "without" the knowledge of their parents.

    Palin refused to introduce two abortion restricting bills to a special session on a natural gas pipeline she felt would not likely succeed, Governor Sarah Palin expressed her willingness to bring the legislation to separate sessions.IT NEVER HAPPENED.House Bill 301 would forbid partial birth abortions, while House Bill 364 would require parental consent for women under 17 seeking abortion.Palin on On Creation,"Oh, I think it should be taught as an accepted principle. And, as you know, I say that also as the daughter of a school teacher, a science teacher, who has really instilled in me a respect for science. It should be taught in our schools. And I won’t deny that I see the hand of God in this beautiful creation that is Earth. But that is not part of the state policy or a local curriculum in a school district. Science should be taught it science class.”

    Funding for Planned Parenthood and other abortionists has continued to soar with John McCain's support even when George W. Bush entered the White House, and even during Republican control of the U.S. Senate and the House of Representatives and the U.S. Supreme Court. Funding to Planned Parenthood has increased by tens of millions of dollars in the Bush years. Further, John McCain's consistent Health and Human Services 'yes' votes have funded Title X, Title XIX, and through other avenues, has subsidized Planned Parenthood and pays for chemical abortions like the Morning After Pill, RU-486, surgical abortions for children whose fathers are rapists, and generally subsidizing the immorality promoted by the abortion industry.He is highly critisized by RTL and many pro-life activist.

    McCain said of Roe v. Wade, "I'd love to see a point where it is irrelevant, and could be repealed because abortion is no longer necessary. But certainly in the short term, or even the long term, I would not support repeal of Roe v. Wade, which would then force X number of women in America to undergo illegal and dangerous operations.McCain has voted 119 times on pro-life measures in the Senate including co-sponsoring the FEDERAL ABOTION BAN.This bonehead,LOL >as you call me believes that LIFE begins with Conception.And for brains,you have posted once again something that has no truthful merits.John McCain is the Republican candidate who funds the surgical abortion of 300,000 children. In one example out of decades of his funding abortionists, he voted to allocate monies on Oct.27,2005for tax-funded abortion if the baby is unwanted because his father is a criminal, that is, a rapist.He supports embryonic stem cell research, will continue to do so.I think his statements speak for him.
