On August 19, 2019, Yadkin County in North Carolina became the first official sanctuary county for life in America.
Pastor Keith Pavlansky, the president of Personhood North Carolina, declared that the passage of this pro-life resolution was an historic event and also added that the resolution “is the first step in adopting a complete culture of life in our communities.”
- The first objective establishes, as the official policy of the county, the scientific fact that life begins at conception or fertilization.
- The second commits to enforce this policy “by all means within its power, in accordance with its responsibilities as the people’s elected local representatives.”
Pro-life activists are following up by erecting a plaque on the county government grounds. This plaque commemorates the resolution and the efforts of pro-life activists to make this policy a reality.
According to LifeSiteNews, there are “plans for public town hall meetings to work with the people, churches, and local organizations to find ways to provide support for mothers and fathers of pre-born children so that the county can become a place that truly welcomes and protects the gift of life.”
LifeSiteNews notes that this sanctuary county is unique because of its affirmation of “the right of the people to protect the right to life against a tyrannical judiciary.”
Sarah Quale, president of Personhood Alliance Education, told LifeSiteNews that the Personhood Alliance is working with its affiliate organizations to spread sanctuaries for life across the nation.
“When you look at a county-by-county map of America, and you see how conservative the vast majority of them are, you realize the enormous opportunity the pro-life movement has. But for almost 50 years, we’ve completely given our power away and trusted politicians and judges to end the injustice of abortion. After all this time, shouldn’t we be further along?” Quale asked.
Quale added, “There are hundreds of counties like Yadkin and thousands of towns and municipalities with good Christian people who want to stand up and do something impactful and eternal. The only reason abortion is still legal in the United States and still culturally accepted under the auspices of choice, rights, and healthcare is because we have allowed it to be so. It’s time for us to change that.”
Sanctuaries for life are the latest in the trend of political decentralization that is sweeping across the nation.
When politicians at the federal and state level won’t do their jobs, citizens at the local level are now taking matters into their own hands.
Black Rifle Coffee Does Not Support Second Amendment Hero Kyle Rittenhouse
At this Time, Cons
Black Rifle Coffee, a coffee company based in Salt Lake City, is not defending 17-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse.
The company said that it was against a tweet that Blaze Media reporter, Elijah Schaeffer, posted that featured Rittenhouse wearing a Black Rifle Coffee Company shirt captioned “Kyle Rittenhouse drinks the best coffee in America.” Rittenhouse was released on November 20, 2020 after supporters were able to raise $2 million for his bail.
In the tweet, Schaeffer posted a discount code for the coffee. Sara Tabin of The Salt Lake Tribune noted that online Twitter users “questioned whether the coffee company had a sponsorship deal with Rittenhouse and accused it of supporting murder and hate.”
This prompted Black Rifle Coffee, the sponsor of the Slightly Offens*ve podcast, to release a statement on November 21 declaring that it is not sponsoring or supporting Rittenhouse.
Initially, there was a misunderstanding about the company withdrawing its sponsorship of Slightly Offens*ve. However, a spokesperson for the company told the Salt Lake Tribune on November 21 that “We are not fluctuating our ad spend.” The coffee spokesperson added “We did have a conversation with Schaffer, and he understands that the post was a mistake.”
She stressed, “We don’t traffic in national tragedy and to us, that’s what this is. We are not legal experts or members of law enforcement. We fully support all law enforcement officials and believe in the integrity of the legal system.”
The spokesperson reiterated that the company will maintain its sponsorship of Blaze Media. She explained: “Our concern is that use of the discount code in the post did not reflect our values. That’s a concern we’ve addressed with the journalist and that he understands.”
Blaze employees “make decisions about how to allocate ad dollars within the Blaze,” she remarked. Although the spokesperson did not go into further detail about the company’s status as a podcast sponsor, it noted that the coffee company and the Blaze are in talks about “how to move forward with the allocation of ad dollars.”
Black Rifle Coffee positions itself as a pro-Second Amendment, conservative company that was founded by veterans. Black Rifle Coffee co-founder Evan Hafer released a statement on November 21 declaring that “We do not support legal advocacy efforts. We do not sponsor nor do we have a relationship with the 17-year-old facing charges in Kenosha, WI.”
At the moment, Rittenhouse is facing two counts of first-degree murder for shooting and killing Joseph Rosenbaum and Anthony Huber during a Black Lives Matter riot back in August. In addition, he’s being charged with one count of being a minor in possession of a firearm. During the riots, Rittenhouse was attacked by Rosenbaum. Rittenhouse was carrying an AR-style rifle as he was walking down the street to protect private property from looters.
It is disappointing to see supposedly pro-Second Amendment businesses fold to the mob. Although the Left is very effective at mass politics and causing certain businesses to get cancelled, some businesses will have to take a stand. Submission to these radicals only encourages them to become bolder in their attacks.
