Michigan Attorney General Dana Nesselís attack on faith

This is a new generation of elected political representatives refusing to respect, recognize, or answer to God. Their desire is to terminate the Judeo-Christian moral standard, which interferes with their personal ideology, political causes, and chosen lifestyles. This self-serving revelation is totally redefining our culture and could severely weaken, if not destroy, our nation.

Democrat Dana Nessel was sworn in as Michigan’s 54th attorney general on Jan. 1, 2019. As a married lesbian, she is the first person elected to statewide office in Michigan who is openly lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, or questioning (LGBTQ).

From the start, Nessel began spinning her ultra-liberal campaign positions into active policy.

Her rejection of biblical marriage became apparent when she gained notoriety arguing for the same-sex marriage case which went before the U.S. Supreme Court, resulting in the legalization of same-sex marriage on June 26, 2015.

Former state representative and current Michigan American Family Association President Gary Glenn co-authored Michigan’s 2004 ballot proposal banning same-sex marriage.

During the general election in 2018, Nessel labeled as discriminatory a 2015 Republican-enacted adoption law stating an agency does not have to place children into LGBTQ homes. She described proponents of the law as “hate-mongers”‘ who disliked gay people.

Once elected, she aggressively went after Lansing-based St. Vincent Catholic Charities, threatening to withdraw state funds unless St. Vincent changed its position on same-sex adoption. A lawsuit resulted, which St. Vincent won.

U.S. District Judge Robert Jonker said the lawsuit was about whether Catholic adoption agencies can continue to profess and promote their belief that marriage “as ordained by God is between one man and one woman.” It was a clear issue of religious liberty, and past statements by Nessel “raise a strong inference of hostility toward a religious viewpoint.”

Nessel has put the issue of abortion over her elected responsibilities. Unborn babies are alive from conception, but considered expendable and are callously murdered by the abortion industry. Nessel proclaimed at a Planned Parenthood event that, if Roe v. Wade were overturned, she would never prosecute a doctor.

America is a nation of laws. She is sworn to uphold the law. That is not upholding the law!

In February 2019, Nessel and the Michigan Department of Civil Rights announced the formation of a Hate Crimes Unit that would use as a reference a hate group map published by the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC).

The SPLC is a notoriously discredited left-wing, anti-Christian organization that targets conservative groups that disagree in part with their liberal ideology, dealing with issues like LGBTQ rights.

Consequently, a commentary from the Thomas Moore Law Center (TMLC) stated that Nessel was acting in concert with the Michigan Department of Civil Rights and the SPLC to watch, listen, track, and compile secret dossiers on so-called dissidents, and then prosecute them.

The SPLC published its annual Hate Map on Feb. 19, 2019, listing as a “hate group” Church Militant, a Catholic news organization located in Ferndale that advocates that marriage is instituted by God for one man and one woman exclusively.

The Catholic Church has not broken any law or shown any violence towards the LGBTQ community, and having them on any Hate Map is false and pure harassment.

Subsequently, the TMLC in Ann Arbor and Church Militant on Jan. 9, 2020 filed a lawsuit against Nessel for her refusal to comply with Michigan’s Freedom of Information Act relevant to the charge. TMLC Chief Counsel Richard Thompson stated that Nessel was using sham excuses to refuse to supply crucial records that would show her targeting organizations that opposed her personal ideology. The TMLC stated Nessel is weaponizing the Attorney General’s Office to suppress religious beliefs on traditional marriage by threats of investigation and prosecution.

Thompson stated, “Nessel has single-handedly turned the Attorney General’s Office into an instrument of thought control by intimidation, using its law enforcement powers to police the speech of Michigan residents.”

This is a new generation of elected political representatives refusing to respect, recognize, or answer to God. Their desire is to terminate the Judeo-Christian moral standard, which interferes with their personal ideology, political causes, and chosen lifestyles. This self-serving revelation is totally redefining our culture and could severely weaken, if not destroy, our nation.

Nessel’s compadre for abortion and the LGBTQ is Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer. These politicians’ actions scream Christian morality and family values be damned.

They show zero regard to people of faith, labor diligently to target and evaporate long-established, faith-based, traditional-moral laws and standards and demand that the very people they represent accept beliefs and guidelines contradictory to their conscience and faith.

This is clearly an attack on God, on His Word and on His moral principles. Joining these politicians in their attack is academia, the arts, and the mass media. These ultra-liberals have become their own gods, declared their ideals as “The New Religion,” and are working to throw Almighty God and Christianity out the back door of this nation.

Mike Westfall is the regional representative and spokesman for the American Family Association of Michigan.

She is an anti-Christ. I think she was funded by George Soros.

Michigan has the power to remove politicians, including the governor and attorney general, via petition. However, based on responses I received from Michiganders yesterday, you idiots don’t have the balls to get off your fat, useless asses to begin the process.

Signing petitions is too much work for Michigan mice. Now, go crawl back in your mouse holes and squeack for government cheese, you worthless pieces of crap.

The Mi media made the fact that this woman was a lesbian activist one of best kept secrets you can imagine. Most voters had no clue. So during lame duck the GOP legislature passed a bill that would have limited her power. On Rino Ricks last day in office he vetoed it.

This is the problem with the Left. If they reject the possibility of judgement in the Afterlife, there is no reason to fear any punishment for their deeds in this life, and so swearing an oath to "tell the Truth" is simply pointless.

It's "Yeah, sure, whatever, just words..." to this whole concept.

If the "oath" is squishy, what is the purpose? Like an oath to tell the truth, or to obey the Constitution. There is a possible solution.

How about they die, screaming, after a minimum of three days, for violating an oath? Since Leftists don't fear the judgement of an Almighty, AFTER they die, what if they have some concern about how they die? Low power electricity, impalement, starving wolves, ants and Mrs Butterworth's...

The Constitution? They rejected that, why should it protect them? A two way street.

Wow. She sounds like just as much of a dingbat as the Minnesota AG - Keith Ellison.

For goodness sakes - don’t voters have any idea how important the position of Attorney General is, and why the election of goofy leftists is a threat to the civil rights of traditionally moral people?

Great reply. You obviously don’t live in Michigan. Why don’t you get off your ass and learn a little about Michigan.

How does this attorney general feel about Moslem morality and family values, inasmuch as Islam has so much influence in Michigan? The last I heard, Moslems don’t care much for same-sex marriage or abortion.
