God, Hope & Helping Others Nsearch: Coolest Stuff on the Planet



The “eat local” trend sweeping the nation touts the economic and health benefits of eating food stuffs one can find “in their own backyard.” But a group of Arizona senators has taken the phrase literally, by proposing a bill to legalize backyard chickens throughout the state. S.B. 1151 would prohibit Arizona municipalities from banning “a resident of a single-family detached residence from keeping fowl in the backyard of the property.”

While the bill would allow municipalities to regulate the gender of the fowl and how many can be kept, S.B. 1151 would eliminate any current municipal outright prohibitions on keeping them on private property. State Senator David Farnsworth, the creator of the bill which has bipartisan support, believes that since “We (Arizonians) all pretty much come from farming backgrounds,” the legislation will help Arizonians get back to their roots.

Sen. Farnsworth went on to explain that “many of our ancestors raised their own food and had animals which helped us with enjoyment and also food.” Arizonians continue this tradition every year at the Valley Permaculture Alliance’s annual Tour de Coops, “a self-guided tour and sustainability festival that celebrates urban chickens and sustainable living in the Valley of the Sun.”

While many cities in Arizona already allow homeowners to keep backyard chickens, cities like Glendale, the 5th biggest city in Arizona, and Sun City prohibit ownership either throughout the entire city limits or in certain zones. These laws violate the right of property owners to peacefully and productively use their property to feed themselves and their families, and they prevent families from using chickens as anexemplary tool for teaching their children about nature and caring for other living creatures.

Plus, when maintained properly, chicken coops can be unobtrusive. As the Institute for Justicepreviously reported:

So long as chicken coops are kept clean and properly maintained, they do not cause a rise in pest populations. And maintenance is simple. Coop owners need not spend more than fifteen minutes a week to keep their coops smelling fresh and full of happy and healthy chickens.

The Institute for Justice has joined the fight for food freedom with the launch of our National Food Freedom Initiative. We are litigating on behalf of front yard gardeners in Miami Shores, cottage food producers in Minnesota, and raw milk farmers in Oregon.

It is the Ministry of NSearch that all inherit the Kingdom of God

But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law....

Now the works of the flesh are evident, 

which are adultery fornication, uncleanness, lewdness,

idolatry, sorcery, hatred, contentions, jealousies,

outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, dissensions, heresies, envy,

murders, drunkenness, revelries, and the like;

of which I (Paul the Apostle) tell you beforehand,

just as I also told you in time past, that those who 

practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God. 

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, long-suffering,

kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control,

against such there is no law. Those who are Christ's

have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.

If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.

Let us not become conceited, provoking one another,

envying one another.

Galatians 5:18-26

{Sorcery: "Pharmakia;" Primarily mentioned as one of the "works of the flesh." In "sorcery" the use of drugs. Blue Letter Bible. Galatians 5:20}
