Orlando, FL – -(Ammoland.com)- And somewhere men are laughing and somewhere children shout, but there is no joy in Libville – the lefties have struck out.

But it's not just liberal Democrats who lost big last Tuesday. The “centrist” Republican establishment crashed and burned as well, lending credence to the growing narrative that a thoroughly exasperated America has entered the age of the political outsider.

While the midterms saw sweeping victories for both conservative pro gun candidates and ballot initiatives nationwide, the big winners were religious liberty and family values. Two particular victories best illustrate this national shift in the electorate's “tolerance” for “progressive” socio-political extremism.

First, voters flushed Houston's anti-woman “HERO” ordinance. This radical “LGBT” policy would have, among other things, allowed sexually confused men in women's public restrooms and showers, severely punishing anyone who tried to stop them.

Second, was the unexpected trouncing Kentucky businessman and outspoken Kim Davis supporter Matt Bevin laid on Democrat Attorney General Jack Conway in that state's governor's race.

While Houston's bathroom bill was crushed by 62 to 38 percent, Bevin, who was behind in the polls all the way to the end, nonetheless handily beat Conway by 53 to 44 percent.

The Bathroom Bill

Houston, Texas, is anything if not “progressive.” After all, voters there have thrice elected a militant lesbian activist as that city's chief executive. After Mayor Annise Parker's misogynistic bathroom bill spiraled down the toilet bowl, she angrily proclaimed, “No one's rights should be subject to a popular vote!”

On this we agree, Ms. Annise. No woman, teenager or little girl should ever have her absolute right to safety and privacy subject to a popular vote. How dare you place women and children in danger and force your constituents to reaffirm this self-evident truth.

If you have a trace of honor, you'll resign.

Women have a right not to be confronted in the shower by a naked, mentally ill man in lipstick. To say that he's the “discriminated against” party here, represents everything wrong with today's America. While I'm proud that Parker, a public official, has blocked me, a private citizen, on Twitter, all the foot stomping and “equal rights” propaganda in the world couldn't block the people of Houston from protecting themselves, their wives and their daughters.

But we shouldn't be surprised at Parker's rage. HERO was her own personal Rosemary's baby – the bastard byproduct of corrupt political artificial insemination. She had already pulled out all the stops to ram it through. You may recall that just last year, in an effort to bully them, she illegally subpoenaed the sermons and privileged communications of a number of Christian pastors who vocally opposed the bathroom bill, as well as having her city attorney, David Feldman, subvert Houston's citizen petition process by illegally tossing out nearly three-quarters of the already validated petition signatures needed to put her utterly insane “gender neutral” ordinance up for a vote by the very people whose privacy it would sexually assault.

It took the Texas Supreme Court and the voters of Houston to set Ms. Parker, um, straight.

Matt Bevin's ‘Kim Davis Effect'

Kentucky Gov.-elect Matt Bevin ran on a bold and unwavering conservative platform. While he won the election fair and square and is eminently qualified to serve as governor, both his supporters and detractors alike agree that it was his courageous public support of embattled Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis that tipped the scales. This support got out the evangelical vote and made a difference – big time.

After Kim Davis was thrown in jail by a rogue federal judge for refusing to waive her First Amendment rights and violate her conscience by signing her name to counterfeit “same-sex marriage” licenses, Bevin visited her in jail and publicly voiced his unequivocal support for both the institution of marriage and for Davis' absolute right to defend it.

The election was not even close,” said Mat Staver, Davis' attorney and chairman of Liberty Counsel. “The lopsided victory for Matt Bevin stunned most political pundits. There is no question that the issue of religious freedom and same-sex marriage played a role in the results. The people favor traditional values and marriage, and they are tired of the political elites, represented by Governor Beshear, who are out of touch with ordinary, God-loving citizens. We look forward to working with Governor-elect Matt Bevin to accommodate the religious convictions of Kim Davis and other Kentucky clerks. Finally, we will have common sense and the Constitution prevail in Kentucky,” concluded Staver.

And work together they shall. Bevin publicly announced Friday that he will exercise his legal authority as governor to ensure that Ms. Davis receives the accommodation she both deserves and the U.S. Constitution demands.

In short: Kim Davis wins. Bullies lose.

The Big Take Away

This midterm election proves, once more, that when the evangelical, Catholic and Orthodox communities get out and vote en masse, both conservatism and family values prevail.

In Houston we saw a highly motivated group of Christian pastors lead their flock to the polls in unprecedented numbers.

It took a perverted threat against their wives and daughters to spur it, but they stepped up and did it – and they are to be commended for doing so.

In Kentucky we saw the persecution of one woman inspire a Christian political outsider to take up her cause and stand firm in her defense. He will soon take over as governor and, rouge courts notwithstanding, guarantee that her right to freedom of conscience is protected.

This is Christian leadership in action. If we, the Christian faithful, wish to see an America that once again reflects our values and honors and glorifies the God of our creation, then we must take charge. It is leading that makes a leader, and each and every Christian is empowered to leadership by the grace of the Holy Spirit.

A first step toward leadership is to exercise your Christian duty by voting for men and women who hold to the objective truths found within the pages of God's word. The anti-Christ pagans can take nothing from us that we don't surrender.

The establishment, be it Democratic or Republican, is lying to you. Not only do the “social issues” matter, it is these issues that drives voters to the polls. The “social issues” are biblical issues – moral issues that transcend politics. The “social issues” belong within the purview of the church. They always have. Values voters represent the base of the Republican Party, and when the Republican Party takes the biblical position on these issues, it wins.

But, as they say, “This was just a midterm election.” It was a base hit. If we're going to hit a grand slam in 2016, Christian pro gun voters must step to the plate once more.

And then we have to swing for the bleachers.

    Winning or losing really comes down to ‘Survival of the fittest’. Liberalism ignores that fact and dupes those who join it’s ranks.

    The mentally ill people are those who elect those freaks like the mayor of Huston. What the hell is wrong when her & other wackos are elected to office so they can push their radical agendas on real people. America is going to hell in a hand basket & the stupid voters are pushing the cart.

    JohnC = Completely Asleep zzzz Zzzzz zzz Zzzzz … to the world political system which has fostered the belief in people’s existence itself being a disruption to life on earth. Jesus said “those who hate me, love Death.” That would be referring to you JohnC. Deal with it. The guy thinks he has some scientific understanding of the world. That’s the joke of this .. When he has been conditioned to believe all this horse crap he spouts. Hey, if there is a population explosion, why don’t you step up and volunteer to commit suicide for the sake of the… Read more »

    Has it been very difficult for you going through life being a Know-Nothing?
    Defending your sexual confusion on constitutional grounds is a new one for this reader. There is not much to say in response to the Unlearned.

    Mr Boat there are so many things to disagree with in your reply, but I will address only one. The one that any reasoning person will agree with. There is a population explosion occurring. If you leave the mountains of Wyoming or the plains of Nebraska it will be evident to you too. We have Billions, not Millions but Billions of people on this planet. More than we can properly feed at this time. It is fact that animal populations suffer disease, starvation, stunting or even have mass suicide when populations explode. That is a natural population control to allow… Read more »

    Selfish apathetic ways, In God We Trust, great. However the Constitution specifically sets Church and State as two different areas not to be intermixed. The disposition of sexually confused citizens has little or nothing to do with Church. That is jurisdiction by state. Perhaps you sir should learn the difference between the two and to suggest that one should leave our country for not properly believing is state heresy.

    Well, Mr. Entropy …….. You obviously have no understanding of the mental dynamics of the Transgender person. As our example, let’s take the M-to-F transgender man. Here is a person who was mentally dominated by an overpowering mother figure in a psychopathological fashion for his entire childhood. He wants to identify with a man but he cannot, because in his own perception, he sees the mother as the role model of male strength, not the father. Perhaps the father is absent, either physically or has abandoned the boy psychologically or is emotionally distant. In any case, the primary identification is… Read more »

    Get use to it. In God We Trust. If you don’t, either deal with it or leave and go to a country that embraces the ways of the great deceiver! You and those who believe like you are in the minority. You and your selfish ways has awakened the apathetic Christian base of voters.

    The author really doesn’t have a clue and most likely has never meet a transgender person. Instead he spews a hypothetical rant about individuals potentially acting in the worst way possible. I bet he believes all Muslims are bad people too. I wonder what his view is on anyone that may not believe in his version of God. Maybe dresses differently or has an accent. All are arbitrary difference but we should not be creating laws that infringe on the rights of a person just because they are different from ourselves. The people that want to take your gun and… Read more »
