Several news outlets including USA Today and WND are reporting on a stunning announcement today by GOP Rep. Paul Ryan, who reportedly has changed his views and now says he believes gay couples should be able to adopt children:

Asked at a town-hall-style meeting Monday in Wisconsin about the issue, Ryan said he would “vote differently these days” and still opposes gay marriage. In 1999, the congressman voted in favor of banning same-sex couples in the District of Columbia from adopting.

“I do believe that if there are children who are orphans who do not have a loving person or couple … I think if a person wants to love and raise a child, they ought to be able to do that. Period. I would vote that way,” Ryan says, according to video posted on the liberal Think Progress website.

In the 2012 presidential campaign, GOP nominee Mitt Romney said he supported gay adoption but at the time it was not known where Ryan, his running mate, stood on the issue beyond his 1999 vote.

On the issue of gay marriage, Ryan repeated at the meeting that he believes “marriage is between a man and a woman. We just respectfully disagree on the issue.” There has been heightened interest in gay marriage since the Supreme Court heard challenges on two related cases in March. Ryan said at the meeting that if the justices determine that the federal Defense of Marriage Act is unconstitutional, then he believes it will become a “federalism” issue for states to decide.

WKOW-TV, the ABC affiliate in Madison, Wis., said Ryan’s gay-adoption comment was the “biggest surprise of the afternoon” but it did not post tape of his comments. Ryan apparently changed his mind on the issue years ago, but the TV station said this is the first time he has talked about it publicly.               SOURCE

    How long is it going to be before God turns his wrath on the United States? We keep thumbing our nose at God and say will do it our way and disobey your words that are written in the Bible.

    Are we surprised by this story? Gracious, no. Politics used to be an idol in my heart and I fit in quite well in the "conservative" arm of the law in my former church system of man, who prided itself on its political emails to educate(?), petition emails thinking they were doing the "work" of our LORD, promoting and endorsing political candidates within their temples made with human hands (called churches), right down to the pastor(Nicolatian system) holding up a book during a "sermon" from Mark Levin entitled "Liberty and Tyranny."

    Please show me in The Word made flesh, Jesus Christ, where He instructed new born again believers to engage in such political activeness?

    And I will witness to all that when God, our Father delivers a born again believer out of this political idolatry, called babylon, here in the United States…….the conservative vipers within the religious institution of man, will viciously come after you and identify with the fruits of a spirit of this age….not God, the Holy Spirit.

    We, in this country have placed the heart of politics over the authority of our LORD Jesus Christ and have believed in a fallen system that was never following Jesus in the first place. Even the religious systems of this country have placed more hope in men, politics, and government than in prayer, self denial, and the spreading of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and when you believe that America was a Christian nation, then you have fallen hook, line, and sinker for a lie.

    God has put every leader in place in every nation at His will, to use for His purposes. The whole world is under His authority, not man's, and when we read stories like this, please know that the heart of man is wicked, who can know it……and cursed is the man that trusts in man….for we are a fallen people who have turned America into an idol that generically has been in rebellion against our Soveriegn Mighty God.

    Policitics, as does the western church, worships and glorifies man above and beyond our LORD Jesus Christ….stroking our self esteems. Please applaud my performance now and glorify me now….thank-you very much.

    I hope Christians wake up to the reality that the torrent of wickedness flooding in against the church in America is not aligned with any one political party (i.e. democrats), it is thoroughly bred into the whole political system. Christians must cease trusting in the government, though they must continue to give respect to their governing authorities as the Bible says, and place their whole trust and hope in the Lord alone. The political systems and reforms are not our solution nor our hope!

    globalism and the one world order beast system is moving out of the waters and coming on land. we may be facing the demonic beast as presented in the last days. christians must stay strong and resist unrighteousness as long as possible. we need to reread the church fathers and Foxs book of martyrs…it appears that Christians who choose to live in righteousness may become 2nd class citizens in amerika soon. our option is to stay here and take it, or flee (if that is possible).

    we are called to stay unified together, and face the consequences of being named as a follower of Christ. this culture is finished until the wrath of God comes in judgment then God willing, Christians can pick up the pieces and start again. We await your rapture Lord Jesus!

    God have mercy on the remnant of those who walk with him.
