T/F Tuesday Answer: FALSE! The 5th & 14th Amendments guarantee that our life, liberty or property will not be taken away without due process of law. Especially since most municipal ordinance violation hearings are quasi judicial or administrative in nature, due process requires an appeal to a higher Court be available. The tricky part is that the process to appeal varies greatly from one jurisdiction to another.

Didn’t catch our Get Involved Challenge for “Allegan Election Day 11-3-20 “Trespass” Case FINALLY Dismissed!”? We talked about:
Ask at least 1 LEO this week these 3 questions:
•What conduct is presumptively protected by the First Amendment? (If he looks confused & is in MI, share MCL 750.543z with him, then ask again.)
•Are Resolutions the same as Ordinances, and can you enforce Resolutions upon the public? (For example, can you arrest someone for “violating” a Resolution?)
•Have you heard of the Constitutional Sheriffs & Peace Officers Association?

SCOTUS said there’s NO Constitutional “right” to an abortion; What does God say? – Biblical Insight S1E26
SOTUS recently ruled that the US Constitution contains NO “right” to an abortion. In fact, the US Constitution protects our right to Life, Liberty and Property… So, what does God’s word say?
Luke 1:41: reminds us, a child in a mother’s womb is a “baby”
Job 3:16: recognizes “a stillborn child” (a baby who dies from natural causes in the womb) is just “like an infant who never saw the light of day”
Jeremiah 1:5: “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.”
Psalm 22:10: “from my mother’s womb you have been my God,” recognizing God knows us and claims us even before we are born
Jeremiah 20:17: NIV “For he did not kill me in the womb, with my mother as my grave, her womb enlarged forever.”
Exodus 20:13 & Deuteronomy 5:17: “you shall not murder”
Deuteronomy 30:19: “I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life, so that you and your children may live”
Didn’t catch our RFW episode? We discussed: The US Supreme Court rulings in the last week: the Dobbs abortion case, the NY 2A case, and the football coach Religious Liberty case! Overturning Roe v Wade, clarifying the US Constitution guarantees no “right” to abortion, striking down the NY gun ban, and clarifying that even public employees have 1st Amendment religious liberties!
But the fight for 2A, the right to life, and religious liberty is far from over!

The US and State Constitutions require transparency in government, but so does the Bible. Ephesians 4:25 tells us “Therefore, having put away falsehood, let each one of you speak the truth with his neighbor, for we are members one of another.” Similarly, James 5:16 says “Therefore, confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, that you may be healed.”
As mentioned in our post regarding the Constitution Segment Recap, here is the PDF of all of the Motions & Briefs Katherine submitted Thursday, May 26th, to Allegan County 57th District Court: tinyurl.com/2p8j9j83
We would like to STRONGLY encourage you to take a few minutes to read the 1st link – “Notice of Hearing, Motion for Immediate Consideration, Proof of Service”. It gives the highlights of all the things that have been happening and what we are asking the court to do now. For more information on this case, and for more resources to fight your own situation, please continue reading the other documents submitted. We are also asking for prayers that the judge finally does the right thing in this case and dismisses both charges WITH prejudice (meaning charges cannot be resubmitted).
The trial judge in Katherine’s case ruled that she has NO right to make any legal challenges to the case brought against her – meaning it’s ok for the Prosecutor to charge her with something that is NOT a crime!
So this week, we talked about Motions to Dismiss a court case – and discovered the law says ALL accused DO have the right to challenge the illegality of cases brought against them.
But the Bible addresses this issue more simply: You shall do no injustice in court. Leviticus 19:15
Didn’t catch our Get Involved Challenge for “Motions to Dismiss – What are they?” We talked about: Look at and read ALL of MCR 2.116 to learn the different ways you are able to defend yourself. You either have experienced, are experiencing, or will experience a situation where either you are bringing a claim that somebody is trying to get dismissed or a claim is being brought against you in a civil or criminal case. You need to know how to DEFEND YOUR RIGHTS.
