Whereas, God is the sole Creator of the earth and man, being made directly in His image, is the apex of His creation; and
Whereas, God is the ultimate and highest authority, and His laws are the highest laws; and
Whereas, masks cover the image of God by obscuring personal identity, and violate the holy law of God by restraining the healthy in place of the symptomatic sick; and
Whereas, the Constitution of the state of Iowa and the Constitution of the United States recognize the right of the people to assemble peaceably with no abridgement; and
Whereas, the Governor has no constitutional authority to decree law to the rightful citizens of Iowa; and
Whereas, Clergy is commissioned to preach the whole counsel of God’s Word and to be a conscience to a wicked world that is often ruled by tyrants.
Now therefore, we, ministers of the gospel, by the power and authority vested in us by God Almighty, ORDER and DIRECT the following:
That Governor Kimberly K. Reynolds retracts her unconstitutional and oppressive mandates that require the citizens of Iowa to cover the image of God by covering their personal identity with a mask and the mandates that abridge the citizens of Iowa from exercising their God given right to peaceably assemble. We recognize and uphold the Governor’s right to strongly recommend actions be taken in the interest of public safety as the extent of her constitutional authority.
That the Iowa Legislature reconvenes with the express purpose to fulfill their legislative duty by ending the unlawful Proclamation of Disaster Emergency. We also call upon the Iowa Legislature to fulfill their oath to uphold the Constitution of Iowa by checking the tyrannical powers that have been exercised by the executive branch.
Further, we resolve: To defy the Governor’s unlawful decrees and to direct our churchmen to ignore her unauthoritative mandates by teaching that rebellion to tyrants is obedience to God.
Thus, may our Heavenly Father rule and His laws be obeyed,
Pastor Keeton Wainscott, Rev. Cary Gordon, Pastor Michael Demastus, Rev. Christian Shields, Pastor Sam Jones
COVID-19 may take down an independent news outlet
Nobody said running a media site would be easy. We could use some help keeping this site afloat.
Colleagues have called me the worst fundraiser ever. My skills are squarely rooted on the journalistic side of running a news outlet. Paying the bills has never been my forte, but we’ve survived. We have ads on the site that help, but since the site’s inception this has been a labor of love that otherwise doesn’t bring in the level of revenue necessary to justify it.
When I left a nice, corporate career in 2017, I did so knowing I wouldn’t make nearly as much money. But what we do at NOQ Report to deliver the truth and fight the progressive mainstream media narrative that has plagued this nation is too important for me to sacrifice it for the sake of wealth. We know we’ll never make a ton of money this way, and we’re okay with that.
Things have become harder with the coronavirus lockdowns. Both ad money and donations that have kept us afloat for a while have dropped dramatically. We thought we could weather the storm, but the so-called “surge” or “2nd-wave” that mainstream media and Democrats are pushing has put our prospects in jeopardy. In short, we are now in desperate need of financial assistance.
The best way NOQ Report readers can help is to donate. Our Giving Fuel page makes it easy to donate one-time or monthly. Alternatively, you can donate through PayPal as well. We need approximately $11,500 to stay afloat for the rest of 2020, but more would be wonderful and any amount that brings us closer to our goal is greatly appreciated.
The second way to help is to become a partner. We’ve strongly considered seeking angel investors in the past but because we were paying the bills, it didn’t seem necessary. Now, we’re struggling to pay the bills. This shouldn’t be the case as our traffic the last year has been going up dramatically. June, 2018, we had 11,678 visitors. A year later in June, 2019, we were up to 116,194. In June, 2020, we had 614,192. We’re heading in the right direction and we believe we’re ready talk to patriotic investors who want to not only “get in on the action” but more importantly who want to help America hear the truth. Interested investors should contact me directly with the contact button above.
Election year or not, coronavirus lockdowns or not, anarchic riots or not, the need for truthful journalism endures. But in these times, we need as many conservative media voices as possible. Please help keep NOQ Report going.
