The 2008 Elections - Who Should Christians Support?

"Don't team up with those who are unbelievers. How can goodness
be a partner with wickedness? How can light live with darkness?"
2 Corinthians 6:14

As faithful Christians who have bonded ourselves to the teachings of Jesus Christ and the Apostle Paul, we have an obligation to go to the Bible to gain instructions on how we should vote in the 2008 elections. Jesus did not die in vain. He died so that we would be spiritually reborn, filled with His Spirit and have a renewed mind. With guidance from the Bible, our renewed minds can correctly discern how we should be voting in this critical 2008 elections. As Christians, we are never instructed to compromise our values or commitment to God.

The political systems of the world are constantly seeking ways to manipulate Christians. Unfortunately, secular political leaders have been very successful at infiltrating churches and luring Christians into making ungodly decisions. The end result of this infiltration has been Christians making covenants with deceptive politicians. We are now on the brink of seeing America become one of the most ungodly and anti-christian nations on the planet. What do we do to bring political revival to America and turn this nation back from the dark path it has been going down?

We need a national miracle. Only God can save us now. However, God will not move miraculously on our behalf if we are continuing to be disobedient in our decision making. There are too many Christians who are seeking God for miracles, but they still continue to make decisions which are blantantly disobedient to the teachings of the Bible. God will not move where there is disobedience.

Jesus said in John 12:46 -- "I am come a light into the world, that whosoever believes in Me should not abide in the darkness." We are commanded by the Lord in this passage to remove ourselves from living in the darkness. The term darkness is defined as "ignorance of divine things, and its associated wickedness, and the resultant misery in hell."

We cannot claim to be servants of the Lord at the same time that we are making decisions which lead to the empowerment of ungodly political leaders in our nation. We cannot buy into this manipulative idea of "voting for the lesser of two evils." This squandering of our Christian heritage by voting for a candidate who is less evil than his or her opponent is still voting for a evil person. Paul wrote in 2 Corinthians 6:14, "How can goodness partner with wickedness?" If we are truly seeking God for a national revival based upon the Word of God, we dare not give our support to those who are in rebellion to the teachings of Jesus Christ.

In order for us to see true Christian and political revival in our nation, we must take bold and decisive action. We can no longer afford to cast our vote for those who we cannot confirm as Christians. It is most prudent to remind ourselves of the timely Biblical scripture which says, "Do not cast your pearl before swine." Our vote is our pearl. Our vote is our seed. Our vote is our destiny! Let us only plant our seed in the good soil of worthy candidates during this 2008 election season.

Here are the current recommendations from the James Hartline Report. We only recommend those candidates, judges and initiatives which are confirmed as being Christian and helpful to the Cause of Christ:

San Diego Mayoral Candidate Steve Francis Joins Transvestite Activist To Endorse Replacing City Slogan With New Slogan/Theme Tied To Biotech Industry

~ The James Hartline Report ~
- On The Frontlines On The Culture War -
January 28, 2008
Campaign 2008 Update

San Diego Mayoral Candidate Steve Francis Joins Tranvestite Activist
To Endorse Replacing San Diego's Official City Slogan,
With New City Slogan and A Theme With Ties To Promoting
The Biotech Industry.

"America's Finest City" Slogan Would Be Replaced
With New Official Slogan Titled "City of Life" and Theme
Giving Biotech and Embryonic Stem Cell Industry Widespread
Promotion Throughout San Diego.

Mayoral Candidate Steve Francis Has Extensive Ties To Biotech Industry
While Endorsing Replacement of Traditional City Slogan With One That
Will Promote Theme Tied To BioScience Industry.

(Campaign 2008) Everyday, the municipal government of San Diego takes even more shallow breaths than it took the day before. The time of San Diego's impending bankruptcy, both morally and financially, is at hand. The once brilliant heritage of this great southern California metropolis is becoming as cold as a corpse. Above the morbidly tarnished ivory towers of this second largest city in California, the political vultures are circling and readying themselves to feed on whatever money has not been stolen from San Diego's mournful taxpayers.

There is one political vulture who is circling San Diego's municipal carcass more hungrily than any other. He is circling his prey - a truly rabid opportunist. He is the political beast better known as former Las Vegas politician-turned millionaire Steve Francis. A real flip-flopping political chameleon, Steve Francis has once again declared himself a candidate in the 2008 San Diego mayoral race.

Salivating at the sight of stumbling incumbent Mayor Jerry Sanders, candidate Steve Francis is ready to raid the once glorious city that was founded upon the blood of Spanish missionaries. Those ancient Catholic travelers who layed down their lives to establish California's first Mission in San Diego would see the current escapades of Steve Francis as a cruel assault on a city already haunted by a legacy of immoral and corrupt political leaders. However, there is one current Steve Francis escapade that is perhaps more putrid than all of his other devilish dances combined. Steve Francis has now joined transvestite activist Nicole Murray Ramirez to endorse a proposal to replace San Diego's official city slogan, "America's Finest City," with a new slogan and a theme with extensive ties to San Diego's Biotech industry.

The new official city slogan being proposed by artist George Mullen is called "City of Life." Joining mayoral candidate Steve Francis and transvestite activist Nicole Murray Ramirez to endorse the City of Life proposal are some of the most radical left-leaning political leaders in San Diego, as well as some of the most powerful names in the biotech and embryonic stem cell industry. Included in the endorsement list in support of the City of Life proposal are lesbian San Diego City Councilwoman Toni Atkins, San Diego City Attorney Mike Aguirre, wealthy embryonic stem cell supporter Malin Burnham, embryonic stem cell advocate and co-founder of Forward Ventures Ivor Royston, and Eric Bruvold, President and CEO of the San Diego Institute for Policy and Research, the think tank founded by Steve Francis in 2006.

Perhaps the most distasteful of all the recent plots and plans of San Diego's current crop of self-serving political leaders is the City of Life proposal being endorsed by mayoral candidate Steve Francis. For pro-life activists in San Diego, there is one troubling thing that the City of Life proposal will do for their city: it will turn San Diego into an artistic City of Death. The idea that Francis has signed off on a scheme to turn San Diego and its resources into nothing more than a marketing agent for Francis' wealthy friends in the biotech industry is just one too many punches below the belt for the honest and hardworking voters of San Diego.

From the Rainbow Flag to the broken Nazi cross, political images have been used for generations to manipulate voters into embracing a psychological idea that has ultimately proven to be catastrophic for the nations that embrace them. Greed and the coveting of wealth have been the downfall of many business leaders in America over the past decade. The City of Life proposal endorsed by Steve Francis will ultimately take Francis and his insatiable quest for wealth and power down the same dark corridors that Enron's bosses walked down.

The architect of the City of Life proposal is San Diego artist George Mullen. And the political scam is on: Francis and Mullen recently partnered up on an editorial opinion piece in Voice of San Diego to convice voters of the need for a "new kind" of vision in San Diego. Francis and Mullen write in their editorial:

"We need to reject the caretaker’s stranglehold on elected office and once again seek
leaders with vision. As it has always been, it is the leaders who chart courses of bold,
thoughtful ideas that propel cities and nations to rise to heights previously unimagined."

What kind of leadership with vision is Francis and Mullen advocating? Where do they want to propel San Diego? In Mullen's proposal for the City of Life project he calls for city funds to be spent on his massive replacement of San Diego's official "America's Finest City" slogan and theme. Spending city funds - now that is a new idea, truly revolutionary!

Francis and Mullen also come to some typical anti-business, anti-consumer conclusions in their editorial. They write:

"Even more troubling, the aspirational and inspirational ideas of yesteryear have been
replaced with such mundane causes as Privatizing Social Security, Healthcare
Savings Accounts, and Ethanol Subsidies. Yawn."

"Yawn?" "Mundane?" Cleaning up social security and providing healthcare savings accounts to consumers are boring ideas to George Mullen and Steve Francis. Perhaps this is boring to Steve Francis because he has made millions of dollars by running a corporation that hires out nurses to various medical facilities throughout the United States.

Yes, the scam is on: In their editorial, Francis and Mullen do compliment some of the biggest supporters of embryonic stem cell research in San Diego and California, the very industry that stands to benefit from the City of Life proposal. Francis and Mullen write:

"If we hadn’t followed Alan Uke, Malin Burnham and others in their vision for the
Midway aircraft carrier as a major tourist destination.....If we hadn’t embraced John
Moores vision for a downtown baseball park and revitalization project..."

Malin Burnham contributed $50,000 to the passage of the Prop. 71 - Embryonic Stem Cell Initiative. Passed in 2004, Prop. 71 forces California taxpayers to fund $3 billion in bonds, plus $3 billion in interests for a state mandated embryonic stem cell program. Burnham has also endorsed the City of Life project. John Moores loaned millions of dollars to the embryonic stem cell organization established after Prop. 71 was approved by voters in 2004. The City of Life project would place Life Science sculptures and themes in various parts of San Diego as part of the new official city slogan and theme that would replace the current official city slogan "America's Finest City."

The City of Life project is a perfect fit for wealthy elitist Steve Francis, who wants to use the government to further his secularization of society by replacing morals from the people with a government run by wealthy business interests. The project is equally a good fit for Mullen, an artist who will receive wealth and fame by creating an artistic scheme that eradicates the history and tradition of San Diego and replaces them with a government-run logo and theme program benefiting the wealthy corporate interests of the biotech and bio-science industry.

To really understand how demoralizing and degrading the Francis-endorsed George Mullen artistic/biotech scheme is for San Diegans, one must read some of the incredibly disturbing comments by George Mullen in his City of LIfe proposal. In reading the following segment of Mullen's City of LIfe proposal, readers should remember that this is what mayoral candidate Steve Francis has endorsed:

"Many people have commented that the proposed City of Life catchphrase favorably
invokes San Diego’s formidable Life Sciences industry, currently recognized as the
third largest and one of the fastest growing Life Sciences clusters in the nation.....
...This important San Diego industry is playing a pivotal role in improving and
lengthening the quality of life for all Americans. With this in mind, we have
enhanced the City of Life art campaign to include a series devoted to the Life
Sciences entitled The Double Helix Dance of Life.........As the structure of the most
basic building block of life itself, the Double Helix is the perfect theme for an
campaign dedicated to the Life Sciences industry within the City of Life."

In George Mullen's description of why he chose the City of Life title for his proposal, he clearly spells out his desire to invoke what he calls the "Life Sciences" Industry. In point number ten of his proposal, Mullen writes:

"Invokes the Life Sciences industry, an important San Diego industry that is playing a
pivotal role in improving and lengthening the quality of life for all Americans."

Mullen further solidfies in the eleventh number of his proposal, his desire to promote the industry that is known to the public for its insidious drive for mythical cures through human embryonic stem cell research. Mullen writes:

"While invoking the Life Sciences industry, at the same time remains inclusive of all
our other important industries and professions."

To understand the corruptive nature of mayoral candidate Steve Francis partnering up with an artist to replace the slogan "America's Finest City" with a slogan and theme that will spread imagery which honors the biotech industry, one must note the extensive ties that Steve Francis has to the biotech industry. A March 20, 2006 press release from BIOCOM and CONNECT, two of the biggest advocacy organizations for embryonic stem cell research, mentioned Steve Francis as a member of a committee for exploring the establishment of a new business enterprise, the San Diego Life Science Accelerator (SD-LSA), aimed at funding and mentoring new technology companies.

Originally founded by the University of California, San Diego, CONNECT is one the most aggressive advocates for embryonic stem cell research in the world. Steve Francis is listed on CONNECT's Board of Directors - Companies & Capitol Providers. If the San Diego City Council were to approve replacing the current official city slogan with the new one called City of Life, Steve Francis would have a gold mine of city-funded promotions for his wealthy biotech friends.

If the idea of replacing San Diego's traditional city slogan for a theme that promotes the greed of the biotech industry were not enough to repulse voters, then the mindset of the proposal's artist surely will. Read the utter arrogance and the belittling mentality of artist George Mullen as he describes the role that his project should play in other cities within San Diego County. And be reminded that this is what mayoral candidate Steve Francis has endorsed:

"Bottom line, the county cities are essentially satellites of the City of San Diego, and
as smaller entities most do NOT have the financial means, commitment, or follow thru
to properly brand themselves. (The satellite cities should not be trying to differentiate
themselves from the City of San Diego anyway. After all, when in New York and
someone asks where we are from the vast majority of us say “San Diego”, whether we
happen to be from the city proper, El Cajon, Del Mar, or Chula Vista.) If San Diego
were to embrace the City of Life branding, why not go to SANDAG and invite ALL the
county cities to join our platform as partners? As the big kid on the block San Diego
will be billed as THE CITY OF LIFE, while each satellite that participates will be billed
as A CITY OF LIFE. The satellites can employ a derivative version of San Diego’s logo
as well. With this plan, we will employ a unique regional effort that enables us to
pool our efforts and resources for the good of the entire county."

If the Steve Francis-endorsed proposal by George Mullen hasn't already nauseated most voters, look at the following statement by Mullen. It get's worse:

"San Diego currently presents itself under the catchphrase "America's Finest City."
The problem with this self-glorifying slogan is that it is a weak cliché that does NOT
sell outside city limits. It instead preaches to the choir, is immodest at best, and at
worst, presents an arrogant and boastful attitude toward our visitors, many of whom
naturally and pridefully see their own hometowns as America's finest cities. In sum,
this slogan is of no benefit to our city."

The Steve Francis-endorsed City of Life project is proposing that thematic artwork, sculptures and emblems that are tied to the proposal be placed at Lindbergh Field, highway overpasses, Qualcomm Stadium, Petco Park and unbelievably on City Flags on Broadway downtown. George Mullen also includes the concept of branding his City of Life as a "strategy." Mullen writes in his proposal:

"In order to successfully implement this aspect of our branding strategy, we propose
the ten variations of The Double Helix Dance of Life as large scale sculptures to be
placed along the two major thoroughfares of San Diego’s Life Science Mesa.
(Nicknaming Torrey Mesa as such is an idea worthy of serious consideration.) The
sculptures are to be placed on the median adjacent to each lighted intersection on
North Torrey Pines Road extending from UCSD / Salk Institute to the south entrance
of Torrey Pines State Reserve, and on Genesee Avenue from where it intersects North
Torrey Pines Road to Highway 5."

There is something truly dark about the hypocrisy of Steve Francis. While he has a habit of posting photographs of himself and Father Joe Carroll, a well-known San Diego Catholic priest, on his campaign websites, Francis also dances a vampirish waltz with some of the biggest supporters of embryonic stem cell research in San Diego. The hypocrisy of Francis promoting himself with a Catholic priest at the same time that he is promoting the industry that kills human embryos makes Francis a rotten apple among a bushel of bad candidates running for public office in San Diego.

Perhaps the professional politicians in Las Vegas where Steve Francis came from are willing to trade away tradition and official city slogans for ones that give more and more of the American culture away to wealthy business elites. However, in San Diego, tradition, honor and integrity still mean San Diego is America's Finest City. And those time-honored values are not up for sale.

OUTRAGEOUS! San Diego City Council & Mayor Receive Recommendation To Get 165% Pay Raise While City Is On The Verge Of Bankruptcy!

OUTRAGEOUS! San Diego City Council & Mayor Receive Recommendation To Get 165% Pay Raise While City Is On The Verge Of Bankruptcy!
San Diego City Council, District 3 Candidate James Hartline says, "NO WAY!" to this outrageous recommendation to give the current council members these huge raises. In the last three years, they have not resolved one single thing on the $2 billion city deficit and pension scandal. Not one thing! Mayor Jerry Sanders, who ran on a platform of reform and resolving the penison deficit, has not resolved one single thing regarding his promises. The only thing Sanders has done is violate a campaign promise of not supporting same-sex marriage. While our city is floating in massive debt, Sanders and the city council spent nearly two entire council days this past year focusing on same-sex marriage. And in violating the will of a majority of San Diego voters, they voted yes to issue a state Supreme Court legal brief in support of a law suit for several homosexual couples who want gay marriage legalized. Instead of resolving the impending bankruptcy of the city, councilmembers are focusing on legalizing same-sex marriage and giving themselves massive pay raises.
THEY ALL NEED TO GO!

From The San Diego Union Tribune:
SAN DIEGO: A year after resisting a recommendation to raise their own salaries 25 percent, San Diego City Council members might be asked to consider an even larger increase.
Advertisement Council members should earn at least $200,000 a year, up from $75,386, say two members of the city's Salary Setting Commission. Commission President Deb Pedersdotter and Commissioner Bob Ottilie also say the mayor should make at least $250,000 a year, up from $100,464.
Council members have been loath for fiscal and political reasons to bump up their pay, but commissioners say higher salaries would attract a broader field of candidates. The council has rejected pay increases since 2004.
The commission, which under city law must make a salary recommendation for the next two fiscal years by Feb. 15, was unable to issue one yesterday because only three of the four members needed for a quorum showed up at a hearing. The panel reconvenes next week. –
M.T.H.

ON JUNE 3, 2008 -- ELECT JAMES HARTLINE TO THE SAN DIEGO CITY COUNCIL, DISTRICT 3.
THIS WILL HELP END THE GOVERNMENT GREED, THE BACK ROOM DEALS AND THE GOVERNMENT GOING INTO OUR COMMUNITIES AND FORCING UNWANTED REDEVELOPMENT AND ILL-CONCEIVED AND MISPLACED MASSIVE CONDO PROJECTS.

LET THE HARTLINE REVOLUTION BEGIN!

HUNTER ENDORSES HUCKABEE FOR PRESIDENT

HUNTER ENDORSES HUCKABEE FOR PRESIDENT

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: January 23, 2008

CONTACT: Gary Becks (619) 334-1655

Washington, D.C. - - - Congressman Duncan Hunter, who withdrew his candidacy for the Republican Presidential nomination on January 19, 2007 , today endorsed Mike Huckabee.

“I got to know Governor Huckabee well on the campaign trail,” said Hunter. “Of the remaining candidates I feel that he is strongly committed to strengthening national defense, constructing the border fence and meeting the challenge of China ’s emergence as a military superpower that is taking large portions of America ’s industrial base.

"Along with these issues of national security, border enforcement and protecting the U.S. industrial base, I see another quality of Mike Huckabee’s candidacy that compels my endorsement. Mike Huckabee is a man of outstanding character and integrity. I saw that character over the last year of campaigning and was greatly impressed. The other Republican candidates have many strengths and I wish them all well. My personal choice is Mike Huckabee," Hunter concluded.

He Gave Up His Eternal Soul To Promote Homosexuality In Hollywood.

The Bible says:
What good does it do if a man gains the whole world and loses his soul?

He decided to push the acceptance of homosexuality onto the culture through a morally bankrupt movie to satisfy the greedy and immoral agenda in Hollywood.

And what did he gain for his efforts?

Brokeback Mountain Star Heath Ledger Found Dead
by The Associated Press

(New York City) Heath Ledger was found dead Tuesday at a downtown Manhattan residence, and police said drugs may have been a factor. He was 28. NYPD spokesman Paul Browne said Ledger had an appointment for a massage at the Manhattan apartment believed to be his home. The housekeeper who went to let him know the masseuse had arrived found him dead at 3:26 p.m.
The Australian-born actor was nominated for an Oscar for "Brokeback Mountain," where he met his wife, actress Michelle Williams, in 2005. Ledger and Williams had lived in Brooklyn and had a daughter, Matilda, until they split up last year.
Ledger was to appear as the Joker this year in "The Dark Night," a sequel to 2005's "Batman Begins." He's had starring roles in "A Knight's Tale" and "The Patriot," and played the suicidal son of Billy Bob Thornton in "Monster's Ball."
Ledger grew up in Perth, and began doing amateur theater at age 10. At 16, he moved to Sydney to pursue an acting career, quickly landing TV movie roles and guest spots on Australian television.
After several independent films and a starring role in the short-lived Fox TV series "Roar," Ledger moved to Los Angeles and costarred in "10 Things I Hate About You," a teen comedy reworking of "The Taming of the Shrew."
Offers for other teen flicks came his way, but Ledger turned them down, preferring to remain idle than sign on for projects he didn't like.
"It wasn't a hard decision for me," Ledger told the Associated Press in 2001. "It was hard for everyone else around me to understand. Agents were like, `You're crazy,' my parents were like, `Come on, you have to eat.'"
His latest role was in "I'm Not There," in which he played one of the many incarnations of Bob Dylan - as did Cate Blanchett, whose performance in that film earned an Oscar nomination Tuesday for best supporting actress.

Introducing Ohio State Assembly Candidate Dr. Patrick Johnston: A Real American Hero



A James Hartline Report Exclusive

Introducing Ohio State Assembly Candidate
Dr. Patrick Johnston: A Real American Hero

With Six Small Children, A Dedicated Wife and Unsinkable Courage:
This Is The Story Of One Man's Quest To Save The Youth Of America

(JHReport - 01/22/08) As the frozen winter snow and ice starts to thaw in Zanesville, Ohio, the water flowing through a small creek behind the home of Dr. Patrick Johnston begins its springtime dance with the slow moving crayfish along the muddy embankment. Crawdaddies, a slang term given to these crayfish by the good folks of Zanesville, quickly become the focus of two giggling little boys and three squealing young girls running to the creek from Dr. Johnston's house. Like plump golden bees which have just fed on a meal of the most succulent nectar dripping from flowers in the Garden Eden, these young children are buzzing with energy.

The young girls are Charity, age nine, Anna, age eight, and Grace, age three. The boys are James, who will turn six in February, and Daniel, who is only four, but already acting like he is old enough to get a driver's license. These small, but vibrant children, are five of the six children belonging to Dr. Patrick and Elizabeth Johnston. Their sixth child, Elijah, is under two years of age, and his mother is not quite ready to let him run his race towards the turbulent creek behind their house. Elizabeth, who is now pregnant with her seventh child, knows that soon she will have to chase after Elijah so that he doesn't run out and jump into the creek. Today, however, will not be that day.

While her other children are playing out back by the creek, Elizabeth is getting Elijah ready for something else that is quite extraordinary for a child under two years of age. Later in the day all six of the Johnston children, including little Elijah, will be making a historic stand for the people of Ohio. Charity, Anna, Grace, James, Daniel and little Elijah will be proudly wearing their brilliantly red t-shirts which read "Vote For My Daddy" at a 2008 Patrick Johnston For State Representative rally. They are part of the incredible team that is helping their father, Dr. Patrick Johnston, in his campaign for the Ohio State House of Representatives, 94th District.

In 2006, Ohio Congressman Bob Ney resigned after pleading guilty to charges of conspiracy and making false statements in relation to the Jack Abramoff Indian lobbying scandal. Congressman Ney's corruption is part of the destructive political environment in Ohio that Dr. Patrick Johnston and his very young family have bravely decided to plant their feet in so that they can help make a better future for their state.

In the heavy atmosphere of an oppressive state government that is bankrupting the futures of Ohio families, a light is bursting forth from the small, but historically significant community of Zanesville, Ohio. Patrick and Elizabeth Johnston and their six little campaigners are locking arms and setting their faces like flint as they march towards the state capitol of Columbus. There is hope for the people of Ohio and that hope is called Dr. Patrick Johnston.

For a time such as this, Parick Johnston has arrived. He was raised in extremely poor conditions. Having to overcome tremendous obstacles in his life, Patrick has never compromised his commitment to God to achieve the tremendous success that he and his family enjoy today. From humble beginnings to the busiest medical practice in his district, this is the story of Dr. Patrick Johnston: A real American hero.

~ Dr. Patrick Johnston: A Real American Hero ~
There will be no greater voice for moms and dads
in the Ohio state capitol than Patrick Johnston.

An ancient Greek Cynic declared: "Other dogs bite their enemies, I bite my friends to save them." Some may view the powerful and convicting speeches of Dr. Patrick Johnston as a biting of the soul, much like the cynic of ancient Greece did in pleading with his fellow Grecians to retain virtue and to reconsider their infatuation with materialism and worldliness. Others may not be too sure how Ohio's professional politicians with their fat cigars and overweight wallets will react to the sounds of little James and Daniel Johnston laughing loudly in Ohio's State House Chamber. Or how the wealthy women with their big diamond pendants and Chanel Luxury Line designer bags will respond to the giggles of little Charity, Anna and Grace Johnston as they run up the isle in the House Chamber to hug their daddy. One thing is for sure, there will be no greater voice for Ohio's moms and dads and their children in the state capitol than Dr. Patrick Johnston.

~ Elizabeth Johnston ~
Mother of Six - Friend To Many.

There isn't much that Elizabeth Johnston can't to do when it comes to taking care of her growing family. Graduating magna cum laude from F.S.U. in 2000 with an elementary education major and music minor, she homeschools all six of her very active and brilliant children. In addition to her warm mothering skills and her gifted musical talents, Elizabeth is Patrick's life partner, both in marriage and in ministry. Their ministry goes far beyond raising their own six children to include helping pregnant mothers in the central Ohio area and raising thousands of dollars each year for the Heartbeat Pregnancy Distress Center in Zanesville.

In the morning that Elizabeth is trying to get Elijah ready for the day's campaign event, she can rest assured that her children are in good hands out by the creek. Patrick has run out into the cold, frigid morning to play with his kids. Looking out the window, Elizabeth starts to laugh as Patrick snatches a crawdaddy from the mud. Chasing little James and Daniel with the angry crawdaddy, it is hard to distringuish the kids from their father. These are good kids and they have a good father. Dr. Johnston is absolutely devoted to his children.

It is a good life for the Johnstons in Zanesville, Ohio. Yet, Patrick and Elizabeth have been willing to move out of the comfort of their prosperous, private life to seek out a better future for their fellow Ohioans. As dedicated evangelical Christians, concern for their town and their neighbors is a high priority for the Johnstons -- and it is the only way they know how to live. In today's world of self-centeredness, it is rare thing to see a husband and wife who are so quick to sacrifice for the lives of others. It is a characteristic that Patrick learned early on in life from his own parents. Patrick was born in 1970 in Greenville, South Carolina where his parents were studying to be medical missionaries. Patrick's father was a Registered Nurse and his mother a Licensed Practical Nurse and he was the oldest of five boys.

~ Turning A House Into An Educational Village ~
The Home Life of Patrick & Elizabeth Johnston.

With six children in the home and a seventh on the way, Patrick and Elizabeth Johnston's four bedroom house is one crowded place. The Johnston home is not just a place for them to live. Really, their home is a learning village. Elizabeth homeschools all of her children. With her record of outstanding educational accomplishments, she could have easily gotten a teaching job at the school of her choice. Instead, Elizabeth chose to set up a school in her home where she could use her academic genius to benefit her own children and prepare them to become this generation's next great leaders.

For his part, Dr. Johnston has already begun the significant task of instilling a strong moral and social ethic in his children. In fact, the Johnston family has already earned a reputation in Ohio for being one of the most important pro-life families in the state. With the close connection that their mother has to their education, the Johnston children are learning early on the significant importance of women in the educational arena. Seeing their mom, both as a teacher, a wife and a pro-life activist, the Johnston children are being trained to honor women, both at home and in the workplace.

~ When A Doctor Becomes A Father To An Entire Community ~
Dr. Patrick Johnston: A warrior like no other when it comes to
fighting for the youth in 21st Century America.

As any proud father loves to do, Patrick regularly pulls out his wallet to show off the pictures of his family, particularly the growing collection of photos of his kids. One observer recently asked Dr. Johnston, "Hey, I thought you only had six kids, who are those other kids in the photo?"

With tears in his eyes, Dr. Johnston looks directly down at the photo of two small children and responds, "These others are some of the babies I've helped to save." Dr. Johnston carries photographs of the children he has rescued from the brink of death. At least two children are alive today because Patrick convinced the mothers to give birth to their babies rather than having the abortions they were contemplating. One of the children was born with Down syndrome and is currently in the care of a loving grandmother.

Dr. Johnston cherishes and honors the children that he has helped to save by carrying photos of them in his wallet along with photos of his own six children. This is a testament to the commitment that Patrick has to this generation's children who are often born with irresponsible mothers and fathers. He is a warrior like no other when it comes to fighting for the youth in 21st Century America.

The pro-life movement in Ameica is often attacked by abortion supporters who claim that the pro-life movement demands women carry their babies to full term, yet pro-lifers will rarely offer financial assistance to the pregnant mothers who are contemplating abortion. This claim by abortion supporters certainly cannot be made against Patrick and Elizabeth Johnston.

~ Patrick and Elizabeth Johnston ~
A Husband & Wife Team Who Tells The World
That Every Life Matters & Every Child Is Important.

Every pregnant mother who is contemplating an abortion, who comes into Dr. Johnston's office, is offered assistance by the Johnstons if she will forgoe the abortion. Both Patrick and Elizabeth have made a public offer to adopt each baby that the mother is seeking to abort if the mother will not abort her baby. This offer was even extended to the litte baby with Down syndrome. Fortunately, the baby's grandmother was willing to take in the baby, thus it remains with the birth family.

Patrick and Elizabeth Johnston are raising their six children to know the meaning of life. With the same quality of character that has become the hallmark of their father's medical practice and pro-life advocacy, the Johnston children are already accomplishing more in their very young lives than many Christian churchgoers do in a lifetime.

Nine year-old Charity and eight year-old Anna are regular pro-life advocates who can be seen outside of various abortion clinics pleading with young women not to go through with their abortions. In 2005, when he was just three years-old, Dr. Johnston's oldest son, James, was heard warning obstetricians at the convention of American College of Ob/Gyns, “Don’t make God mad! Don’t kill babies!”

Dr. Patrick Johnston has raised up one of the most conscientious families in the midwest. However, he doesn't limit his family to just his own wife and kids. He considers his entire medical practice to be an extension of his family: all 5,000 patients!

Dr. Johnston's reputation for compassion, strong work ethic and vast knowledge of both traditional and non-traditional medicine has allowed him to become the dominant practicing physician in his district. Less then seven years ago, Patrick started his practice. Within two years his practice had grown to 1000 patients. After another doctor was sued for malpractice, Dr. Johnston inherited that physcian's 4,000 patients.

With 5,000 patients, Patrick has the busiest practice in an area that already has 260 physicians. What is the magnet that attracts so many clients to Dr. Johnston in an area that is replete with an abundance of practicing physicians? The answer lies in his Christian faith and how he applies it to his medical practice and the patients who seek his help.

On a busy day, Dr. Johnston sees approximately 55 patients. Each patient is extremely important to Patrick, each life, significant, each illness, a need that must be met. To understand the approach that Dr. Johnston takes and why so many patients are attracted to his medical office, one needs to know that Patrick Johnston is a doctor and a minister. In the same fashion that a church pastor helps dozens of congregants everyday, Dr. Patrick Johnston seeks to diagnose a patient's illness and offer them spiritual guidance. Bibles are available to every patient that comes into Dr. Johnston's office. Bible tracts and information on a wide variety of social issues are readily available in the waiting room. With a loving concern for the whole person, Dr. Johnston offers to pray with each of his patients.

~ A Father To The Fatherless ~

Two-three times per year, Dr. Johnston will see a female patient who is pregnant and not married. This is where Dr. Johnston separates himself from other doctors. He not only treats the woman like a patient, but also like a daughter. Every woman who comes into his office and is considering an abortion. Dr. Johnston and his wife Elizabeth will offer to take the baby and adopt it if she will carry it to full term.

Oftentimes these young, pregnant women are in a state of panic and fear because they are financially poor and cannot afford the cost of raising the child. Thus, they seek to abort the baby for financial reasons. Patrick and Elizabeth Johnston seek to alleviate the immense pressure that these women are under by offering them the help that they so desperately need in their time of crisis.

Sue Wolff, the Director of Heartbeat Pregnancy Distress Center, has received many referrals from Dr. Johnston. Heartbeat Pregnancy Distress Center cares for pregnant women in Zanesville, Ohio. The Johnstons even sent a check to Sue Wolff to pay for an entire month's rent for one young woman who was pregnant and had no place to live. This allowed her to have her baby without fear of being homeless and abandoned.

Over the last two years, the Johnston's have personally raised over $25,000 through musical benefits for the Heartbeat Pregnancy Distress Center. At these annual benefits, Patrick speaks eloquently about the life and death struggles involved in pregnancy and abortion. His wife writes and sings original songs for the benefit. In 2006, 1100 people attended their benefit. Last year, the number had risen to 1200 in attendance.

The Johnston Family is united in their ministry to women, pregnant mothers and their unborn children. The ministry called Right Remedy is proudly featuring an advertisment for their 3rd annual musical benefit for the Heartbeat Pregnancy Distress Center. This year, each of the Johnston children will be singing their hearts out to raise money for women in need at the pregnancy center. It is a good thing too. The current heartwrenching advertisment on the pregnancy distress center's website states: "This is a slow season right now and we are running low on diapers, wipes and baby clothing size, premies - 4T for both boys and girls. Baby bed, mattresses, high chairs, strollers, and basniets."

The auditorium in Zanesville will be packed as the Johnston's sing passionately for the lives of the babies in the wombs of mothers in central Ohio. In the middle of the concert, the lights will begin to dim. One intense light will beam down onto the darkened stage. One woman, with tears running down her face, will begin to sing out as if the only thing that mattered at that moment, in all of God's creation, was her song for the babies of America. She is singing a song titled, "How I Will Miss You." It is a song about a mother who cries out for the baby that she aborted and wishes to get her child back. The woman singing that song is Elizabeth Johnston.

Little James Johnston will be singing at the concert as well. He is a sharp and responsible little boy, soon to turn six years-old in February. His daddy, Patrick, has already produced in James the kinds of qualities of character that many adults never do apprehend.

When his daddy told him that he was going to run for the 94th District of the Ohio State House of Representatives, little James made a very big decision for a boy who is about to turn six years-old. With his big eyes looking up at his daddy, James held up his piggy bank and declared, "Here daddy, I believe in you!" He took his life savings of $4.98 and gave it to his daddy as a campaign contribution. That is the kind of character that has already been instilled into the hearts and minds of James and his five siblings. Dr. Johnston will proudly tell everyone that the $4.98 contribution of his son is now among the most valuable of all the financial contributions that he has received.

Patrick Johnston is a fanatic when it comes to studying the economic conditions of his state and, in particular, the local communities that make up his district. He makes no attempt at hiding the severity of the financial stress that most of the neighborhoods are suffering in Ohio's 94th District. According to the Tax Foundation, Ohio's state and local tax burden ranks as the fifth worst in the nation. As a result of Ohio ranking as the 49th worst state for business tax climates, communities like Coshocton recently lost 200 jobs with Pretty Products to the state of Tennessee.

There is no doubt that the state of Ohio is under seige by depressing economic numbers. Although Patrick Johnston is laying out the harsh economic reality to voters in his district, he understands that the people of Ohio must have a visionary to lead them out of the years of corruption which have plauged the Ohio State house.

In 2005, then Governor Bob Taft was charged with four criminal misdemeanors. Taft was declared guilty of four misdemeanors for breaking state ethics laws by failing to report golf outings, meals, hockey tickets and other gifts from some of the state’s most influential business and political leaders. At his arraignment in Franklin County Municipal Court in Columbus, Taft pleaded no contest and was fined $4,000 plus court cost. Judge Mark Froehlich also ordered Taft to apologize to the people of Ohio as well as state employees. At the time, Taft said he was "very disappointed" in himself.

~ Ethical and Educated ~
Patrick Johnston's Winning Combination

Patrick Johnston can certainly boast of a well-qualified education in his bid to take on the problems facing Ohio. He attended medical school at the Nova Southeastern University College of Osteopathic Medicine and graduated in 1998. He came to Ohio University for his residency in family practice, and was chief resident his final year. In spite of a 70 to 80-hour work-week as chief resident, he worked part-time during his residency at a medical clinic for indigents.

He founded the Association of Pro-Life Physicians, which is committed to discovering which physicians hold to the Hippocratic ethic when caring for unborn human lives, and then educating the public about those physicians who will not commit abortions nor refer their patients for abortions. Dr. Johnston is a member of the American Academy of Family Practitioners and the American Osteopathic Association.

~ A Compassionate Man For All Seasons ~

Compassion is not something that can truly be proclaimed by a man until he has experienced the very adversity that has beset those whom the man seeks to convey such compassion. Dr. Patrick Johnston knows what it is like to suffer poverty and then, through hard work and faith, overcome those things which empoverish many in America today. He understands the intimate concept of Christian compassion, something that he has embraced as a way of life.

There is a uniqueness about Patrick Johnston that goes far beyond today's typical Christian. James Hartline, a nationally recognized Christian activist from San Diego, California, has been suffering with AIDS for over ten years. When he recently went to a national Christian Conservative conference in Coshocton, Ohio, he had the opportunity to meet Dr. Johnston. When Hartline arrived back in San Diego, Dr. Johnston called him that same day just to make sure that he had arrived home safely. Three days after that telephone call, James received a card in the mail. It was from Patrick Johnston. He wrote to tell Hartline that he and his family would be praying for James on a regular basis. These are the kinds of compassionate acts of care and concern for others which give Dr. Patrick Johnston, his wife Elizabeth and their six beautiful children a reputation for being one of the best families that America has produced in the 21st Century.

Indeed, Ohio is a most fortunate state to have the Johnstons in their midst. And Ohio voters better be careful how they treat Patrick Johnston on election date. There are plenty of other states that would be very happy to have Patrick and Elizabeth Johnston if Ohio's 94th District doesn't want them.

ACTION ALERT: SAY NO! To San Diego City Council Giving Free Needles To Drug Addicts

The James Hartlne Report Action Center
Action Alert!
January 12, 2008

It Is Time To Stop The Madness!

Will You Speak Out Against The City of San Diego
Giving Free Hypodermic Needles To Drug Addicts?

San Diego City Council To Review
The "Clean" Needle Exchange Program
on Tuesday - January 15, 2008 at 2:00pm

Join San Diego City Council Candidate James Hartline
And The "Not On My Watch" Team
As We Make Our Stand In This Generation!

If YOU Don't Speak Out -- Who Will?

(Action Alert) Last year, the San Diego City Council entered into a covenant with some of the most radical libertarians in California when they approved the disasterous Clean Needle Exchange Program (CNEP). The CNEP allows heroin and methamphetamine IV drug users to get free needles at mobile vehicles in residential neighborhoods in the city of San Diego. Hypothetically, these drug abusers are supposed to bring in their dirty needles and exchange them for free, clean ones. In reality, this "program" provides drug abusers a constant means for shooting up deadly and illegal street drugs. Additionally, in approving this very sick hypodermic needle giveaway, the city council gave libertarians what they wanted: another incremental step in socialized medicine and elimination of all laws that criminalize illegal drug use.

After one year of operation and a tremendous increase in violent crimes in the neighborhood that is the site for one of the needle exchange vehicles, the San Diego City Council is conducting an annual review of the program. The review will be conducted at the San Diego City Council chambers on Tuesday - January 15, 2008 at 2:00pm.

Disasterous Results In The Last Year

Several months ago, San Diego City Council candidate James Hartline was asked by his good friend, Ronnie Fannuchi, if he could help her with a very difficult job. After an extremely successful career in the entertainment industry, Ronnie gave it all up to be a dedicated Christian and mother. Ronnie Fannuchi has devoted her life to being the best mom that she can be in today's anti-child culture. Today's drug-soaked culture has been wickedly cruel to Ronnie's oldest child: With a broken heart, Ronnie called her friend James Hartline and asked him to go with her to her oldest son's apartment to help clean up a very bad mess in the son's North Park home.

When James and Ronnie arrived at her son's apartment, they found over 200 dirty hypodermic needles that were sprawled everywhere in the small confines of her son's living quarters. Embedded in the carpet, on the kitchen counters, under the bed, the deadly, dirty needles were everywhere. These needles had come from the local, clean needle exchange program in North Park. Ronnie almost lost her beloved son. And it is clear, that her son was not exchanging needle-for needle, as the so-called city council-approved program requires.

San Diego City Council candidate James Hartline photographed all of the dirty needles in the apartment prior to their destruction. The photographs will be used as evidence against the continuation of the disasterous clean needle exchange program. In dealing with the San Diego City Council on this issue, it is clear that the current councilmembers are completely disconnected from the cultural reality of what they have done by pulling the trigger in favor of giving free needles to IV drug users.

Since the implementation of the clean needle exchange program in the North Park area of San Diego, violent crimes have skyrocketed in the area. In fact, over the past year, violent crime has increased so dramatically, that leaders of the homosexual movement have formed their own civilian policing organization to monitor the neighborhood. The Stonewall Citizen's Patrol provides constant surveillance in the areas of North Park and Hillcrest. Despite these facts, advocates for the CNEP dishonestly contend that there has virtually been no increase in crime in the area where the free needles are being given to drug addicts. They simply refuse to contemplate that drug addicts take their needles away from the vicinity of the CNEP van to shoot up drugs and commit violent crimes while under the influence of illegal narcotics.

Incredibly, the San Diego City Council recently voted to ban alcohol on public beaches in the city because of the uncontrollable behavior of drunks on the beaches. Yet, this same city council finds nothing wrong with giving free hypodermic needles to heroin and crystal meth addicts so that they can shoot up their poisons with clean syringes. The madness must stop! And it must stop with us!

My God! My God! What Have We Become?

What kind of society are WE allowing to be created for the next generation?
Will you speak out against giving free needles to drug addicts?
Or will you leave it up to someone else to do your job for you?

BREAKING NEWS-Discrimination In City Council Race Leaves Christian Candidate Out of Candidate Forum Being Held At Gay-Friendly Church

The James Hartline Report - Breaking News!
- On The Frontlines Of The Culture War-
January 9, 2008 (12:30pm.pst)

Discrimination In City Council Race Leaves Christian Candidate
Out of Candidate Forum Being Held At Gay-Friendly Church

San Diego Christian City Council Candidate James Hartline Is Denied
Participation In Campaign Event That Will Feature Gay Candidates At
Kensington Community Church

(JHReport) San Diego, California is a city that has been overrun with scandals, corruption, federal court indictments and city councilmembers who have been convicted on bribery charges in recent years. Now voters in the midst of the 2008 elections can add illegal discrimination to the litany of political problems which are plaguing the City of San Diego. At the center of these new and troubling allegations is Kensington Community Church, a large, gay-friendly church that will be the location for a significant San Diego City Council candidate forum on January 16, 2008.

Kensington Community Church, a member of the United Church of Christ denomination, allows the Kensington-Talmadge Community Association to hold a monthly event on its church property. Scheduled for the community association's upcoming January 16, 2008 monthly event at the church will be a candidate forum featuring candidates from San Diego's District 3 city council race. District 3 is home to a large portion of San Diego's homosexual movement. James Hartline, a well-known Christian activist and opponent of corruption within San Diego's gay community, is a leading candidate in that city council race. Despite his prominence in the city council race, Hartline says he is not being permitted to particpate in a forum with the other candidates at the gay-friendly church.

Hartline, who has consistently exposed corruption inside of San Diego's gay community, believes that an attempt to keep him away from voters during the meeting at the church is part of a discriminatory scheme by political powerbrokers who want to prevent him from winning the election. Hartline did not receive an invitation to the candidate's forum at the church like the other candidates in his district race did. Hartline says that he would not have even known that a candidate forum was being conducted at the church except for the fact that the campaign forum is currently advertised on the website of one of the other candidates who is running against him in the District 3 race.

Todd Gloria, a homosexual activist who supports same-sex marriage and the legalization of male sodomy in the U.S. military, has been invited to the candidate forum at the church. It is Todd Gloria who is advertising the candidate forum at Kensington Community Church on his campaign website.

Hartline also contacted John Hartley, another candidate in the District 3 race, to ask him if he knew about the candidate forum at the Kensington-based church. "Yes, I know about the event, I've been personally invited," Hartley told James Hartline yesterday during a brief phone conversation. Hartley's personal invitation points to severe hypocrisy, as well as the corruptive nature of politics, in San Diego. John Hartley is listed as the coordinator on a website called Neighborhoods For Clean Elections. Hartley's website states: Clean Elections will clean up San Diego City Hall and return city government to the Neighborhoods. Apparently, Hartley's message of clean elections does not extend to James Hartline's right to appear with other candidates at the gay-friendly Kensington Community Church.

This is not the first time that groups inside of San Diego's homosexual community have attempted to block Hartline's appearance during campaign events where his opponents have been allowed to speak. According to a report in Political Voice, the San Diego Democratic Club voted to not invite James Hartline to its June 28, 2007 candidate forum. Despite the group's bylaws which state that all candidates in non-partisan races are to be invited to its forums, boardmembers asked its organizational members to waive their bylaws and affirm their decision to not invite the Christian activist. Political Voice stated that Hartline was not invited because "of his 'anti-LGBT views' and his 'tendency' to cause disruption in public forums."

The problem of a church allowing a political group to use its property is a tenuous one at best. What makes this issue of excluding a Christian candidate from a church property even more dilatorious, is the covert manner in which Hartline has been excluded from the event. Hartline, and his campaign attorney, Robert Sutton, believe that moral, ethical and legal boundaries have been crossed by the Kensington-Talmadge Community Association by excluding him from a campaign event at the church.

"It is a sad day for San Diegans, when a church allows a community group to use its facility and that community group is keeping a Christian from participating in a candidate forum on the church property," said San Diego Christian activist James Hartline.

"We have now seen the most vile form of discrimination in San Diego," Hartline adds. "A church property being used as a location for denying a Christian candidate his legal right to be a part of the politicial process is not something that we can tolerate in our city or our nation."

Although Hartline has become a regular target of discrimination and many times been threatened by members of San Diego's gay community, he vows to continue fighting for his fellow Christians and the people of his city to have their voices heard at city hall. "I will not allow the religious bigotry that has been sent my way by a community group using the Kensington Community Church to deter me from making my stand for the people of San Diego," declares a very serious James Hartline.

Hartline believes that even if he is prevented from speaking on the property of Kensington Community Church, that other churches will uphold his constitutional right to be heard during this election. "Political corruption will not stop me. Bigotry will not deter me. Discrimination will not beat me," he says.

While Hartline is being prevented from participating in the candidate forum on the church property, it appears that the floodgates of disturbing and questionable forms of religious activities are going on at the church. A homosexual square dancing group and yoga classes are listed on Kensington Community Church's website of scheduled events. Hartline says that he finds it incredible that a church is allowing its property to be used for a homosexual square dancing party. According to the website for San Diego's Finest City Squares, the group is a square dance club serving the lesbian and gay community in the San Diego area. The website also lists Kensington Community Church as the location for its monthly dance party.

Hartline finds it equally disturbing that a church would allow its property to be used by a community association that allows candidates engaged in homosexuality to speak at a candidate forum, but not a Christian man who obeys the Bible and has left the homosexual lifestyle. Hartline also sees Kensington Community Church bearing legal responsibility for the illegal discrimination being waged against him. Hartline points to the fact that the church website advertises the monthly dinner that will include the candidate forum on their list of church programs.

Denying James Hartline his legal right to appear with the other city council candidates at the church also involves the appearance that governmental sources are being used against the Christian activist. The Kensington/Talmadge Community Association is promoted on the government-funded website of lesbian San Diego City Councilwoman Toni Atkins. James Hartline has repeatedly spoken out against Atkins during public appearances at the San Diego City Council. While Atkins is promoting the Kensington/Talmadge Community Association on the taxpayer-funded city council website, the association is refusing to allow Hartline to appear along with other candidates at the Kensington Community Church.

According to a May 22, 2007 transcript from a meeting of the San Diego County Board of Supervisors, County Supervisor Ron Roberts recommended that $40,000 in taxpayer funds be given to the Kensington/Talmadge Community Association for a new gateway sign in their community. While the association doesn't mind taking public funds for community signs, it seems to have a real problem allowing a Christian to speak at their community's church.

It is not only local politics which are playing a role in the discrimination against James Hartline in his bid to replace lesbian Councilwoman Toni Atkins in the 3rd District of the San Diego City Council. Congresswoman Susan Davis, who represents the area in congress, has addressed the Kensington-Talmadge Community Association during its monthly meeting at the Kensington Community Church. Congresswoman Davis, who has a history of promoting the extremist interests of the radical homosexual movement, made these comments in her May 2007 congressional newsletter:

"I was grateful to have an opportunity to address the members of the Kensington-Talmadge Community Association on Wednesday, April 11. The association's monthly dinner gathering is an opportunity for members to gather together, share stories, and build a sense of community. As a resident of Kensington for nearly 35 years, it is always a treat to spend time with my neighbors and discuss the issues of the day. Among the topics that we discussed were election reform, education, the war in Iraq, and immigration."

Todd Gloria, the city council candidate who is challenging Hartline for the District 3 City Council seat, is employed by Congresswoman Susan Davis. Gloria has used his position with Congresswoman Davis' office to appear at a multitude of Kensington-Talmadge Community events under the guise of representing her office. Keen observers have often commented that it was hard to determine whether Gloria was at these community events to represent Davis' congressional office or whether he was using these events as public appearance opportunities for his own city council campaign. One thing is certain, Congresswoman Davis' employee, Todd Gloria, has been invited to speak at the Kensington Community Church during the candidate forum and James Hartline is being denied that same constitutional right.

While leaders within San Diego's homosexual movement may currently have the upper hand in controlling who speaks at certain community events during the 2008 elections, James Hartline believes that his faith in God will eventually overcome their discrimination against Christians. "This is not about gay rights," says Hartline. "This is about anti-christian bigotry which controls much of the radical ideology that dictates the marching orders given to followers of the American homosexual movement."

"I have overcome thirty years of homosexuality to become a free man in Jesus Christ. I have outlived the death sentence of AIDS. And I will certainly overcome the discrimination that is preventing me from speaking at a candidate forum along with the other candidates in my district race," declares James Hartline.

James Hartline is an activist, commentator, and national speaker on homosexuality and God's redeeming grace.

James was involved in homosexuality for 30 years, having been steeped in deep degeneration from the time when he was exposed to pornography at the age of 5. He always knew depravity and homosexuality were wrong and he believes that this was due to something that God put in his soul from the time he was an infant. He notes that this is what kept him from being given over to a reprobate mind.

Through a lot of torment and torture, God saved James from the sin of homosexuality. One of the consequences, however, was that he picked up the AIDS virus. The physical suffering was so great that he could no longer remain on the homosexual path. He got to the point of death, a stage of repentence began, and almost 8 years ago he completely renounced homosexuality.
James discusses the road he took to political activism in his battle against the homosexual movement, and he also gives his views on the appearances of pro-homosexual candidates Barak Obama and Hillary Clinton at Rick Warren's church, homosexual youth indoctrination camps, homosexuality and the schools, and more.

Coach Dave is known around the nation as Coach to the Church.

Today James writes and speaks about his many years in the culture war trenches. He is also a leading contender for a seat on the San Diego City Council. Hundreds of San Diegans are entering into politics for the first time ever to stand with James as he stands up for the Lord Jesus Christ in a city that is desperate for a new type of uncompromising political leader.

HELP IS ON THE WAY! Elect James Hartline To The San Diego City Council in 2008

The Campaign of James Hartline
For The San Diego City Council
~ Presents ~

Help Is On The Way!
James Hartline For The San Diego City Council - District 3

Therefore, thus says the LORD,
"If you return to Me, then I will restore you;
Before Me, your God, you will stand;
And if you extract the precious from the worthless,
You will become My spokesman.
Jeremiah 15:19

To my many friends throughout America:

Eight years ago, after a lifetime of homosexuality, drug abuse and hopelessness, I finally gave all of my life to Jesus Christ. I didn't just give Him a portion of my existence: I gave Him everything. At that time, Jesus Christ became my eternal purpose for existing on this earth. The Lord was not just a religious experience for me. Indeed, Jesus became my earthly mandate. In 2000, when I gave up all of my homosexual relationships and allowed God to take away the desire for that destructive sin, God said to me, "Now follow me and watch what happens!"

Over the past five years, I have led the charge in shutting down eight pornographic businesses in the City of San Diego. One of those destructive businesses included a gay sex club that was the location where a multitude of young men had done illegal drugs and had sex while infected with the AIDS virus. In 2005, I led an investigation that uncovered a network of pedophiles who were working around minors in the San Diego Gay Pride organization. As a result of that investigation, we were able to stop the San Diego City Council from issuing a proclamation to declare Gay Pride Week in the City of San Diego. These endeavors were just a small portion of what I have helped to bring to the City of San Diego during the past seven years.

In 2003, I helped launch the Hillcrest Mission, a successful 501(c)3 charity, to bring the Gospel of Jesus Christ inside of San Diego's homosexual community. Under my leadership, the Hillcrest Mission held a major conference in 2006 called "Shake the Nation." Shake the Nation featured some of America's top pro-family leaders and activists, including prominent religious attorneys Charles LiMandri and Brad Dacus and renowned author and speaker William J. Federer.

From 2004 to 2006, I helped rally hundreds of concerned citizens to save the Mt. Soledad Cross from being torn down. In 2004, we were moving ever closer to having the cross removed from the famous Mt. Soledad Veteran's War Memorial. My involvement with Mission Valley Christian Fellowship culminated in a massive religious liberty rally at the war memorial the night before the November 2004 presidential elections. With the phenomenal help of religious liberty attorney Charles LiMandri, Congressman Duncan Hunter and President Bush, we were able to permanently secure the cross at its current location atop Mt. Soledad.

In 2007, I helped organize a complicated event at Petco Park to protest the San Diego Padres who were allowing a radical homosexual group to hold a homosexual celebration at the stadium at the same time that the team had already invited thousands of young kid to participate in a "free floppy cap giveaway" event at the ballpark. Over 100 San Diegans joined me at this righteous protest where we distributed thousands of Bible tracts and information about the homosexual movement to baseball fans and families. Bill O'Reilly's popular "The O'Reilly Factor" and many local television stations provided national and local news coverage of our protest.

Prior to July of 2003, I had never once sent out an email. I did not even know how emails worked at that time. Despite being an internet novice at that time, I decided to start emailing friends and churchmembers about the corruption going on in San Diego and the homosexual community. Within weeks of sending my first James Hartline Report email news alert in 2003, my original email list of 20 people grew into hundreds. Four years later, I have the largest Christian email mailing list in San Diego County. Each month, over 100,000 emails are sent out by the James Hartline Report -- a phenomenal accomplishment for a man who was computer illiterate five years ago!

With a determination to serve God and help Christians everywhere, my original James Hartline Report email news updates have multiplied into many different arenas. In the past year, I began publishining a fully comprehensive news website called California Christian News. Last year also saw me publish my first ministry booklet, "Broken Rainbow -- After The Gay Life Isn't Gay Anymore." In 2006, my life story was featured on an international broadcoast of the 700 Club.

In all of my various ministry accomplishments and Christian activism, I have never once compromised my commitment to Jesus Christ. What people see of me in public is exactly how I live my life behind closed doors. One of the main messages that I have labored to convey to my fellow Christians is that we don't have to compromise our values or public stand for Jesus Christ to accomplish the assignments that God has given us. Too many of our American political and religious leaders who claim to be Christians, have betrayed us and our Biblical values with moral, financial and culture denials of Jesus Christ. I have proven that we can stand strong for God in the American culture and we don't have to deny our commitment to Christ in the process.

In the last four years, I have developed a Christian Citizenship group called "The Not On My Watch Team." At least eight times per year our team goes to the San Diego City Council where we speak out on issues of moral consequence. As a result of our efforts at city hall, many San Diegans have been inspired to become involved in the restoration of our city's decaying moral foundation. Many other citizens in other American cities have duplicated our organizational efforts by creating their own civic watchgroups.

And now in 2008, I am setting my eyes on an even higher prize:
I am running for a seat on the San Diego City Council.

Eight years ago, God told me to leave my old lifestyle behind, to pick up my cross, and to follow Him. I have never looked back. Even though there have been many times where I have stood in the fires of controversy, in the winds of persecution, and in the storms of sacrifice, I have been obedient to the call that God gave me those many years ago. Now, with the same dedication I have carried out over these past eight years, I am going to the next level.

Will You Support James Hartline in his bid to bring
Justice, Integrity and Strong Moral Values
back to the San Diego City Council in 2008?

I am committed to bringing justice, integrity and strong moral standards to the San Diego City Council when I am elected. There will be no compromising these values once I am elected. I am determed to see that the broken moral compass in our city is mended.

Just like when God said to the prophet Jeremiah, "if you will extract the precious from the worthless, you will be My spokesman," I feel that same mandate upon my life in this campaign. I intend to represent Jesus Christ and my fellow Christians on the San Diego City Council.
